House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) was caught maskless in close proximity to others just hours after scoffing at the idea of an “honors system” for masking.
“What is this, the honor system?” she questioned the press when asked why she was still making people wear masks in the House if they have been vaccinated. “The honor system, as to whether someone has been vaccinated? Do you want them breathing in your face on the strength of their honor?”
Pelosi’s rules go against CDC guidance, and seem to be just her attempt to punish the few GOP holdouts who have refused to get vaccinated against the coronavirus.
The new CDC rules just give Pelosi another opportunity to lord her power over Republicans who dare to defy her, like Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), whose motion to follow the CDC guidance got shot down along party lines.
These rules should not be a partisan attempt to virtue signal and punish opponents, and I hope this bad behavior backfires on her and her whole party big time in 2022.
