On Sunday, state Rep. Moe Maestas (D-Bernalillo) tweeted about the Superbowl, which triggered responses from constituents about masking children due to the large number of celebrities who attended the big game maskless.
One constituent wrote, “Unmask our kids you hypocrite.”
Rep. Maestas clapped back, callously writing, “My kids don’t snivel.”
One constituent wrote back to Maestas, “What a galactic a**hole response. Unmask our kids you fascist pig.”
Maestas clapped back again, “#NoSniveling.”
That response resulted in countless other New Mexicans furious with his careless response to children being masked at schools, while most of the country does not require masking of kids at school.
“[I] bet you wouldn’t say this to the face of anyone in this thread. #coward19,” one user wrote.
“#UnmaskOurKids now. I don’t give a s**t if YOUR kids like it. They can wear a mask. Mine don’t need to,” wrote Paul Guessing of the Rio Grande Foundation.
Another commentator wrote, “This from a State rep… Our government hates us. They want us broken and demoralized and our children abused and enslaved.”
“The fact that this is how he responds to parents in his state who’s children are suffering and witnessing hypocrisy in a mass scale shows his terrible character and his opinion is trash,” wrote another.
Here are some other responses:
“What an absolutely disgusting response from ‘Moe’. These people hate our kids. Sick.”
“Sorry your kids have to deal with you. Bet they snivel behind your back.”
“This guy is a classic narcissist. He can’t be empathetic as he doesn’t possess the ability to. His kids probably don’t snivel bc narcissists are abusive, and those kids are most likely terrified of him. He cares nothing for your children as he can’t even do that for his own.”
“[S]o kids who have to suffer all day in masks every day they are in school, never seeing faces, who then see the disgusting display of the super bowl and ask their parents ‘why do I have to wear a mask but adults don’t’…. are ‘sniveling’?”
“What a disgusting response. This is what he thinks of kids who don’t want to wear masks. Sniveling. Gross response…just gross.”
“Too disgusting for words. If you’re still not motivated to get up and do something about the situation we’re in, remember people like this are currently controlling how our children spend their day.”
