NOT THE BABYLON BEE: Oregon health official announces COVID-19 death toll dressed as clown.

Claire Poche, a senior official of the Oregon Health Authority, made the announcement dressed in a red tie, polka dot shirt, bright yellow pants, and a full face of clown makeup.

A senior Oregon health official donned a clown costume prior to announcing the daily death toll from coronavirus.

Claire Poche, a senior official of the Oregon Health Authority, made the announcement dressed in a red tie, polka dot shirt, bright yellow pants, and a full face of clown makeup.

“As of today, there have been 38,160 cases of COVID-19 in Oregon, with 390 new cases being reported today,” announced the harlequin impersonator. “Sadly, we are also reporting three deaths today, bringing the statewide total for COVID-19-related deaths to 608,” she somberly continued in heavy contrast to her attire.

I wonder if she’ll be tag-teaming with Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot, who wore this outfit to a press conference at the start of the month:

Curiously, Lightfoot’s outfit failed to have the desired effect on at least two of her citizens: Chicago Sisters Accused Of Stabbing Employee 27 Times After Being Asked To Wear A Mask.

One of whom “recorded the incident on her phone,” according to Yahoo News, which should likely make the prosecutor’s job much easier.
