When will there be consequences for elite Democrats who refuse to wear masks in public despite requiring them for the rest of us?
Oh yeah, never.
Can you imagine if a Republican did this?
On Tuesday evening, conservative news outlets obtained photos of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi going maskless at a crowded event in DC, in violation of the venue’s instructions, President Biden’s guidelines, and, according to a tweet just a few hours before the event, the opinions of her own staffers.
Just under three hours before the photos of Pelosi were published, the Speaker’s deputy communications director, Robyn Patterson mocked Republicans for their opposition to masking requirements and mask mandates.
Now that Omicron has emerged, I wonder if any Republican Hill staffers regret embracing anti-mask sentiment as a personality trait.

Hours later, the exclusive photos showing Patterson’s boss, speaker Pelosi, going maskless inside a packed event.
Reactions to the photos from Republicans on Capitol Hill came in quickly after the story was published.
Rules for thee but not for me.

If you tell your neighbor there are landmines under your lawn, and he sees you dancing on your lawn the next day, he won’t call you a hypocrite — he will call you a liar.
That’s how I see politicians who push mask mandates. They take you for a fool.https://t.co/vlxppwaa4H

While Democrat politicians have pushed mask mandates across the country, Republican states like Texas and Florida have taken a more relaxed approach, with little resulting difference in case numbers.
Patterson has not replied or taken note of her hypocritical statement or the criminal level of hypocrisy laden in her boss Nancy. It is not known if Patterson still feels comfortable working for Pelosi given her multiple mask violations.
This growing phenomenon of Democrats going maskless despite requiring them of their staff and the whole of working class America is part and parcel of just how liberals view their subjects.
We are merely a means to secure one’s job in elected office; our personal liberties, freedom or happiness mean nothing to liberal lawmakers who continue to enact policy which ensures a lack of all three.
