Conflict Over Whether Or Not The NYC Wildfire Smoke Is Abhorrent

Fox News hosts on Wednesday made light of the public health warnings issued over the hazardous haze engulfing New York City, much like some of its personalities dismissed the risk of COVID-19 during the coronavirus pandemic .

Jeanine Pirro, Jesse Watters and Sean Hannity all dismissed the city’s atrocious air quality — caused by wildfires in Canada — and mocked official advice to wear face masks amid the smoke that is expected to last for days.

“While Americans choke on the smoke, the far left smells an opportunity,” said “The Five” co-host Pirro, who turned the haze into an attack on Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) and her signature Green New Deal.

Oscasio-Cortez “says that we must, quote, ‘Adapt our food systems, energy grids, infrastructure, and health care to prepare for what’s to come,’” mocked Pirro. “Other Democrats are pumping up climate hysteria and bringing back, you guessed it, mask insanity.”

The conservative network has often peddled climate disinformation .

Jesse Watters said: “Half the country can’t go outside or breathe fresh air because of our stupid neighbors up north, and the president hasn’t said a single word about it because we don’t have a real president. Other politicians went on TV and told us to quarantine like the good old days.”

After airing footage of New York Mayor Eric Adams urging people to stay inside and mask up, Watters mockingly continued: “COVID: stay home, wear a mask. Smoke bomb: stay home, wear a mask. Elections: stay home, wear a mask. Nuke strike: stay home, wear a mask. The government is prepared for anything.”

Prime-time anchor Sean Hannity, meanwhile, expressed surprise at people who were complaining about their breathing.

“I’m like, ‘I’m walking in the same place you’re walking in and I don’t feel a thing.’ And I’m trying to understand. I work out regularly. So, I think I’m relatively in tune with my body,” he explained.

“I think if I was having difficulty breathing I would notice, but these are young people saying this. Are they all snowflakes?” Hannity asked contributor Charly Arnolt.
