Nancy Pelosi is indicative of everything the Democrats have become: hysterical, bullies, inarticulate, incorrect, tyrannical, authoritarian … and I could go on.
Recently, the House Speaker Nancy Pelosi called House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy a “moron” for questioning the U.S. Capitol physician’s decision to reinstate a lapsed mask mandate in Congress.
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.

The mandated returned at the direction of Capitol Attending Physician Brian Monahan, who changed the policy in light of revised Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) mask-wearing guidelines, that suggest even individuals vaccinated against COVID-19 wear masks while indoors if they live in a “high risk” area.
CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky has tied the guidance-change to the Delta variant.
Pelosi was asked about McCarthy’s statement, to which she refused to hold back.
“He’s such a moron,” Pelosi said.
In a press conference Wednesday afternoon, Pelosi again defended name-calling her colleague.
“Science, science, science, and science,” Pelosi fired back.

“Science, science, science, and science … To say that wearing a mask is not based on science, I think is not wise, and that was my comment."pic.twitter.com/Wr2b6RG7SK

The tactic of appealing to authority, in Nancy’s case it’s “science,” and repeating it over and over is common amongst the most smug liberal elite. It’s seen constantly on twitter, where liberals get free range to spread any kind of misinformation they wish.
She did, however, say in a separate interview that the Capitol mask mandate was not her idea.
McCarthy, for his part, waved off Pelosi’s insults.
“Well if she’s so bright, I’d like to know where the science changes in the Capitol, between the House and the Senate,” he said, noting that the Senate has not re-instituted the mask mandate.
“I never think it’s productive when I talk to her,” he added.
The CDC has faced significant blowback since issuing the revised guidelines on Tuesday, particularly from Republican legislators who object not just to the agency’s decision to recommend masks for vaccinated individuals, but for its recommendation that all individuals in a K-12 setting mask up regardless of vaccination status.
