When asked by @frankthorp about @GOPLeader’s criticism of the mask mandate being reinstated in the House, @SpeakerPelosi responds as she’s getting in her SUV: “He’s such a moron.” pic.twitter.com/2WUwE3A9wR

After calling her GOP counterpart a moron, Pelosi announced from the House floor that “all members and staff that masks will be once again be required in the Hall of the House. However, members will be permitted to remove their masks temporarily while under recognition.”
Q: “Is Kevin McCarthy a moron? And if so, why?”@SpeakerPelosi: “I said earlier in my comments, science, science, science…to say that wearing a mask is not based on science I think is not wise and that was my comment.” pic.twitter.com/uVu28sSsaT

The irony of Pelosi not wearing a mask herself while spouting her talking points not lost here.
McCarthy wasted little time in responding — with logic, reasoning and facts, which assures he will not get an answer to the questions he posed in his reply.
“If she’s so brilliant, can she tell me where the science in the building changes between the House and the Senate?” he asked, according to Fox News reporter Chad Pergram.
“Can she explain to me when the CDC says only vaccinated people need to wear a mask in hotspots? Can she explain to me that DC is a hotspot? When it’s clarified by everybody else it’s not with more than 86% of vaccination within here,” McCarthy further asked. “Can she explain to me the less than 1% affected there. So it’s a lot of questions if she knows so much science explain to me where the science changes in the Rotunda.”
