Raleigh, N.C. — Senate Leader Phil Berger (R-Rockingham) issued the following statement:
“In Roy Cooper’s North Carolina, the Governor can walk with a group of protesters with no mask on, but you can’t take your son or daughter to a playground.
“Rioters can break windows and set fires with impunity, but you can’t exercise on an elliptical machine.
“We’re assured that masses of mask-less people gathered together in the streets caused no rise in cases, yet we’re now all required to wear masks because the danger is too great.
“The inconsistencies and hypocrisy continue to eat away at the trust in and credibility of this administration.”
