Pelosi goes maskless at White House while enforcing mask rules on House floor

House Republicans are slamming House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) for not wearing a mask at the White House on Thursday while also enforcing fines if House members don’t wear masks at the Capitol, Fox News reported.

“This is the definition of hypocrisy,” Rep. Mark Green (R-TN) told Fox and Friends on Friday after being fined $500 by Pelosi for not wearing a mask.

“Leadership 101 at West Point for me 35 years ago, the first thing they teach you is you never ask people to do something you as the leader aren’t willing to do,” said Green, who is also a physician, a veteran and West Point graduate. “And here she is in the House at the speaker’s rostrum, not wearing a mask. She goes to the White House, not wearing a mask.”

Pelosi was seen without a mask and not social distancing at the White House to celebrate President Joe Biden’s signing of the COVID-19 Hate Crimes Act.

Pelosi’s defense

Pelosi has refused to apologize for the double standard, arguing the circumstances weren’t the same.

“The Speaker was required to attest to her vaccination status and required to submit a negative test result in order to attend this event,” Pelosi spokesperson Drew Hammill told Fox News.

While the Senate does not have a mask mandate on the floor, Pelosi has stubbornly held on to her mandate in a move some believe is intended to punish Republicans holdouts who have not been vaccinated.

“We have a responsibility to make sure that the House of the Representatives Chamber is not a Petri dish because of the selfishness of some not to be vaccinated,” Pelosi said Thursday.

CDC guidelines

House physician Dr. Brian Monahan reportedly agrees with the mandate, and he and Pelosi have urged vaccinated colleagues to pressure their unvaccinated counterparts to get jabbed so the mandate can be lifted.

Pelosi’s stubborn insistence comes despite the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) latest guidance, which allows fully vaccinated Americans to go maskless. Currently, about 75% of House members have been fully vaccinated.

Rep. Mariannette Miller-Meeks (R-IA), who also happens to be a physician, was one of four House Republicans to be recently hit with a fine for not wearing a mask at the Capitol.

Miller-Meeks told Fox News the mask mandate should be lifted for vaccinated House members “so that we could be the leaders we are elected to be, and we could be a show of normalcy and what would happen if you got vaccinated as a motivation for people to get vaccinated.”
