(ConservativeInsider.org) – The tension between Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) continues to rise as the coronavirus pandemic drags on. The latest spar between the two took place when Pelosi was asked her thoughts on a recent comment McCarthy made about how masks are being used as a political tool rather than a science-based decision.
On Tuesday, July 27, McCarthy spoke about the CDC’s latest update to its mask-wearing guidelines that told fully vaccinated Americans to don their face coverings once again. This comes after having said they were no longer necessary for the past few months. Understandably, McCarthy said the decision to bring back masks is not based on science, but one “conjured up by liberal government officials who want to continue to live in a perpetual pandemic state.”
The following day, not wanting to miss a chance to attack McCarthy, Pelosi called the GOP lawmakers a “moron” for his belief. Even her spokesperson Drew Hammill confirmed that Pelosi believes anyone who questions the new mask requirements is “moronic.”
The Hill shared more about this spar between the top Representatives:
As the CDC continues to flip-flop its directives over how to remain “safe” during this pandemic, Americans are losing trust in what’s legitimate science and what’s simply a political tool to manipulate and control peoples’ lives. Perhaps rather than insulting those who question authority, Pelosi should understand how misleading her political party has been over the past year.
