Not supposed to be funny, but.....

when Gov McMaster gives his COVID updates I laugh out loud. Watching the facial expressions of the hand signing lady is a blast. Would be great if we had more politicians that were that serious about their jobs this would be a better place to live.

Signers need to be expressive in delivering their message, but obviously some people do a better job than others. Remember the interpreter in Florida a few years back who warned of pizza and bears as a hurricane was approaching?

Was that the one who was a fake signer?

I think the guy in FL was an office worker for Emergency Management and was drafted for the job when their regular interpreter couldn't get there. He knew a little sign language, but clearly not a lot of weather words. I'll bet they have an official Plan B now.

be it a Governor or Public Health Official, has a person in the background doing sign language and yet you never see the same at the Federal level press conferences be it the President or Congressmen?

Why does one group use signers and the other not use them? I imagine that deaf folks use closed captioning all the time on their TV or just read lips - are the signers really needed?

Of course - who could ever forget this guy:

That is called American Sign Language or ASL. It's an expressive language w/o verbs such as "is, was, we're, etc".
