Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi is increasingly growing tired of Republican Minority leader Kevin McCarthy’s antics and attempts to impede the work of the House.
Tuesday night, following CDC’s updated guidance that masks should be worn by both the vaccinated and unvaccinated in high-transmission areas of the country, the Attending Physician of the United States Congress ordered masks be worn in the House when people are in groups.
McCarthy immediately lashed out on Twitter, falsely claiming the decision to bring back the mask mandate is anti-science, which is false.
Make no mistake—The threat of bringing masks back is not a decision based on science, but a decision conjured up by liberal government officials who want to continue to live in a perpetual pandemic state.

When asked about McCarthy’s claim, Pelosi told reporters the Minority Leader is a “moron.”
PELOSI on the backlash to mask mandates: “That’s the purview of the Capitol physician…nothing to say except we honor it.”
Q: @GOPLeader McCarthy says it’s against the science.
PELOSI: “He’s such a moron.”
