Could this be why the Capitol Police backed down on enforcement?
On Tuesday, the Capitol Physician released new guidance in line with the updated CDC recommendations that everyone throughout the Capitol should wear masks regardless of their vaccination status.
The CDC made a sudden U-turn on the May guidance that masks did not need to be worn by those who have been fully vaccinated due to concern about the rise in cases of the Delta variant of the coronavirus. When the announcement was made, the CDC had not issued any reason behind the sudden change other than the rise in the spread of the variant and a few thousand “breakthrough” cases that have been reported.
On Friday, the CDC released memos stating that the “Delta variant” is more infectious than Chicken Pox, but scientists from the United Kingdom have called that claim “not plausible” as they’ve seen case counts there decline.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) went all-in on the new guidance and called House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) a “moron” for opposing the new rules.

On Wednesday, Pelosi was asked if she stands by calling McCarthy a “moron” and she responded that it’s all about “science, science, science, and science.”
REPORTER: “Is Kevin McCarthy a moron? And if so, why?”
PELOSI: “I said earlier in my comments, science, science, science & science. On almost every subject that you can name, science is the answer…to say that wearing a mask is not based on science I think is not wise…” pic.twitter.com/1mxMcO8ubk

Pretty rich from the party that believes that dudes can have periods and give birth and that a baby isn’t a baby. But I digress…
The U.S. Capitol Police (USCP) issued a memo on Thursday that requires masks indoors even for those who are fully vaccinated.
ClashDaily reported on that here:
So, if not wearing a mask in the Capitol is “moronic” according to Speaker Pelosi, then what the heck is this little stunt that she pulled on Friday morning?

Look at that! Octogenarian Nancy is up there at the podium with her decrepit fellow Dems and she’s not wearing a mask in blatant violation of the new mandate that she issued.
Does that mean that she’s a “grandma killer” for not wearing a mask around the most vulnerable group in society?
Rules for thee, but not for me, eh, Nancy?
If she truly thought that she was putting lives at risk, she wouldn’t ever take that mask off for something as insignificant as a photo, especially in the presence of innocent children.

R.I.P. to everyone in that room because “super spreader Nancy” — who has an aide that caught COVID from the “Delta variant Dems” from Texas — decided that she didn’t want to be photographed with a face diaper.
No matter how much we’ve been told that the masks work, the virus continues to spread whether or not there is a mask mandate and despite high rates (over 75% in all 50 states) of mask compliance.
This is coronavirus theater, and even Nancy Pelosi knows it.
