NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio’s Sign Language Interpreter Rocks Out During Ebola Press Conference (Video)

“There is no cause for alarm,” the mayor tells the media, but his interpreter’s wild facial expressions said otherwise

Mayor Bill de Blasio’s press conference addressing New York City’s first Ebola case has gone viral, but not because of what he was saying.

Instead, people have been fascinated by what a sign language interpreter was saying — and doing — while translating for deaf viewers de Blasio’s assurance that there is very little cause for concern.

Based on the interpreter, however, it would appear that the mayor ordered the Big Apple into a state of emergency. Thankfully, that was not the case.

“There is no cause for alarm,” de Blasio said. “New Yorkers who have not been exposed to an infected person’s bodily fluids are simply not at risk.”
