(PatrioticPost.com)- Last week, Jill Biden invited a group of singing nurses to perform during a White House Christmas special that aired last Tuesday night on PBS.
Unsurprisingly, a video of the cringe-worthy scene went viral on Twitter, being viewed over ten million times. The video has since been removed purportedly over “copyright” violations. But who are they kidding? It’s more likely the video was yanked because of the barrage of mockery that came the White House’s way. Let’s just say, people weren’t kind.
Most people, in addition to commenting on how painful the video was, noted not all the singing nurses were wearing masks – a clear violation of Biden’s mask rules for Federal buildings.
But several of the people noted something particularly interesting about this group of singing nurses. They are the Northwell Health nurses’ choir.
Northwell Health, New York State’s largest hospital system, fired 1,400 healthcare workers in early October for refusing to comply with Governor Kathy Hochul’s vaccine mandate.
Northwell was the first hospital system in New York to swing the ax and terminate anyone who refused to get vaccinated. The Long Island-based hospital network defended the move at the time, arguing that they owed it to their community to take a “rapid, aggressive approach” to reach a 100 percent vaccination rate.
Having nurses from Northwell perform in the White House seems a bit like rubbing salt into the wound.
On Monday, it was reported that New York hospitals are struggling with a severe nursing shortage.
Currently, there are 9,300 openings for nurses throughout the state.
Governor Kathy Hochul, who seems completely oblivious to the fact that she played a role in this current shortage, has introduced a state-funded scholarship program called “Nurses for Our Future” to try and entice people to enter the nursing field.
So, she creates a problem by ordering the termination of healthcare workers who refuse to get vaccinated, then she demands New York taxpayers foot the bill to cover the cost of training more nurses to fill the shortage Hochul created.
What a clown show.
