On Sunday night, Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) mocked Los Angeles Democrat mayor Eric Garcetti after a photo showed him going maskless at the Super Bowl. Last Wednesday, Garcetti had insisted that when he went maskless at SoFi Stadium the previous weekend for the NFC Championship game, he was “holding his breath.”

Seeing the photo of Garcetti maskless at the Super Bowl, Cruz tweeted, “He’s really good at holding his breath.”

SoFi Stadium’s rules dictate that masks are required indoors and outdoors during events with more than 5,000 people.

Last Wednesday, asked about photos of him maskless with Los Angeles Lakers icon Earvin “Magic” Johnson, Garcetti stated, “I’ll take personal responsibility, and if it makes you and everyone else happy — or even the photographs with people where literally I’m holding my breath for two seconds — I won’t even do that,” Deadline reported.

“I wore my mask the entire game,” Garcetti protested. “When people ask for a photograph, I hold my breath and I put it here and people can see that. There is a zero percent chance of infection from that.”

He added, “I won’t pull it down for two seconds anymore — that’s easy. But to me, it is crystal clear that nobody has been endangered by that and I’m trying to model the good behavior of making sure we wear this (for the) entire game,” The Daily Mail noted.

Garcetti was widely mocked on social media after the NFC Championship game :
