While powerful Democrats like House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (CA) have tirelessly demanded that all Americans wear masks, it’s clear that for members of the political elite like herself, they are little more than unofficial status markers — symbols of subordination and shame meant for ordinary people only.
In the latest scene from Pelosi’s rarified and conspicuously maskless private life, the Democrat was seen being served wine at a fundraiser by masked servants in California’s Napa Valley. Echoing the sentiments of many frustrated Americans, Fox News’ Tucker Carlson ripped Pelosi to shreds over the hypocritical outing, according to the Daily Mail.
Tucker shreds Pelosi
Carlson noted the curious racial dynamics of the “repulsive, but revealing” scene, almost artistic in its sense of unintentional irony.
A damning video of the $30,000 per chair breakfast shows Pelosi speaking in front of a crowd of predominantly white, mask-free guests being served by a dutifully muzzled, largely Hispanic wait staff.
“The only people there wearing masks are their servants, the faceless brown serfs scurrying back and forth to bring them things. There’s nothing worse than having the help breathe on you. That’s not a problem for Nancy Pelosi, as you can see,” he said.
Rules for thee
The episode is more proof that Pelosi, 81, does not take the restrictions she constantly pushes on others seriously, Carlson said. He noted that Napa is considered a hot spot by Pelosi’s friend Joe Biden, not that she seems to care.
“It’s pretty clear at this point that Nancy Pelosi, our chief COVID enforcer, doesn’t believe a word she says about the virus,” Carlson said.
The real class divide
It was less than a year ago that Pelosi complained she was “set up” after getting caught maskless at a San Francisco salon, and Barack Obama recently hosted a maskless birthday bash with A-list celebrities at his mansion in Martha’s Vineyard, or what one ally called a “sophisticated, vaccinated” gathering.
The hypocrisy has not stopped Pelosi and her fellow partisans from pushing draconian mask and vaccine mandates on millions of Americans.
The Napa fundraiser, Carlson said, captures a growing divide between an oligarchy and a “serf” class that has come to define life in America.
“We now have two groups of Americans, not a broad middle, we have the favored and the unfavored, the savored and damned, we have the vaccinated and unvaccinated.”
