Relationships between Democrats and Republicans in Congress reached a new low.
It’s all because of Nancy Pelosi.
And now Nancy Pelosi bit off more than she could chew when this fight with the GOP blew up.
Republicans exploded in anger when House physician Dr. Brian Monahan imposed a mask mandate on the House of Representatives following the Biden administration’s outrageous retreat to recommend vaccinated Americans and school children wear masks.
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy blasted the decision as not based on science.
McCarthy also ripped the mask mandate as the desire from left-wing health bureaucrats to force Americans to live under COVID restrictions and mandates forever.
“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,” McCarthy wrote on social media.
Reporters asked Pelosi about McCarthy’s comments before she could scurry away in a waiting SUV.
Pelosi escalated the confrontation by insulting McCarthy.
“He’s such a moron,” Pelosi spouted off to reporters.
Pelosi’s spokesman Drew Hammill doubled down in a social media post.
“Unfortunately, we can’t verify this audio because of poor quality, but I can confirm that the Speaker believes that saying a mask requirement is ‘not a decision based on science’ is moronic,” Hammill posted on Twitter.
McCarthy fired back at Pelosi, mocking her intelligence and wondering why the science was different in the Senate – where masks are just recommended – versus the House of Representatives where they’re mandated.
“Well, if she’s so brilliant. Can she tell me where the science in the building changes between the House and the Senate?” McCarthy said.
“Can she explained to me when the CDC says only vaccinated people need to wear a mask in hotspots … [D.C. is] not with more than 86% of vaccination within here. 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.”
Pelosi may think she holds the upper hand in this fight because the press hangs on her every word and acts like her Greek chorus.
But Joe Biden’s poll numbers have plunged in the Rasmussen and Gallup polls as the administration’s crises and failures pile up.
And the latest disaster is the Biden administration trying to impose a permanent pandemic restriction regime on America with new mask mandates without an end date.
But Democrats hold a historically narrow margin in the House of Representatives.
And the growing backlash to the administration’s disastrous COVID response could sweep Nancy Pelosi out of power and into retirement.
