House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has been caught without a mask numerous times in the U.S. Capitol after the return of a mask mandate and threatening anyone who opposes — even those who are vaccinated — with being arrested.
On the first day of the new mask mandate, where the members, staff, and visitors were being required to wear a “well-fitted” super mask, Pelosi (seen in the video above) was in the House chamber, speaking at the speaker’s podium without a mask, and wiping her nose with a what looks like a Kleenex while also touching the area around her, as she is giving orders for others to wear the mask.
Pelosi, on July 29, just a day after she imposed the mask mandate and the same day the U.S. Capitol Police were told to arrest mask defiers, was seen during a Select Committee on Economic Disparity and Fairness in Growth hearing, again maskless. The mask she had was around her neck, and she was coughing.
Pelosi, on July 30, just a few days later, was seen during a press conference, not wearing a mask, talking to others, touching the podium and her nose, while everyone after the speaker is following the directions she imposed. She introduced House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD) and stepped to the side during the conference, still with no mask on.
