New York Politician's Coronavirus Briefing Takes NSFW Turn: ‘I’m Going To Blush’

Nassau County Executive Laura Curran's tennis ball warning sent those in attendance into fits of giggles.

A New York politician provided a much-needed moment of levity at her latest coronavirus briefing.

Nassau County Executive Laura Curran’s presser took an unexpected turn over the weekend when she advised against handling other people’s tennis balls when courts in the county reopen.

“You can kick their balls, but you can’t touch them,” said Curran, eliciting giggles from those in attendance.

Smiling sheepishly, she appeared to immediately regret her choice of words.

“I’m going to blush, sorry,” Curran continued, visibly struggling to stay composed.

“To avoid confusion between whose balls are whose, you can use a marker, like a Sharpie, to mark out an X or to put someone’s initials on them,” she managed to add, amid stifled laughter.
