Oregon Health Official Dresses as Clown While Announcing COVID Death Toll
Oregon Health Authority / Facebook
No one is laughing at the rising death toll from COVID, which is why this is an all-out WTF moment – with a senior health official announcing grim numbers … while wearing a clown costume.
Try not to be distracted by the full clown makeup, red tie, polka dot shirt and yellow pants the official wore as she grimly announces the count of COVID cases and deaths in Oregon.
The answer to your question – who is this clown? She would be Claire Pocket of the Oregon Health Authority. We know it’s Halloween and all, but Claire never discusses her attire in the video.
Officials reportedly dismissed it as just a costume, but that doesn’t match the fact that the video was recorded on October 14, making it now 2 weeks and early enough for Halloween. Plus, the sign language interpreter isn’t in a costume … so Claire really stands out.
Put it on the board – our first Halloween faux pas of 2020.
