LA’s Democrat mayor, Eric Garcetti, was caught maskless at last night’s Super Bowl, prompting Republican Senator Ted Cruz to make the comment, “[Garcetti is] really good at holding his breath.”

SoFi Stadium, the venue for this year’s Super Bowl, require attendees to wear masks for event with more than 5,000 in attedance.

Cruz’s comments come after a photo of a maskless Garcetti and Earvin “Magic” Johnson surfaced online. Regarding the photo, Garcetti said, “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.”

Garcetti went on to say about last Wednesday’s photo, “I wore my mask the entire game. 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 went on to say, “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,”
