Rep. Pramila Jayapal’s Mask Hypocrisy
Rep. Pramila Jayapal’s Mask Hypocrisy
Rep. Pramila Jayapal went on a tweet diatribe yesterday evening about her Covid-19 diagnosis.
“Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash.) announced early Tuesday that she has tested positive for the coronavirus after being locked down with Republicans who “cruelly refused to wear a mask” during rioting by President Trump’s supporters at the U.S. Capitol.
“I just received a positive COVID-19 test result after being locked down in a secured room at the Capitol where several Republicans not only cruelly refused to wear a mask but recklessly mocked colleagues and staff who offered them one,” Jayapal said on Twitter.
The Democrat, who serves as chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, also said she believes she was infected because Republicans in Congress are not “taking the virus seriously.”
Yeah, it’s the Republican’s fault for sure!
Only hours after Trump incited a deadly assault on our Capitol, many Republicans still refused to take the bare minimum COVID-19 precaution and simply wear a damn mask in a crowded room during a pandemic—creating a superspreader event ON TOP of a domestic terrorist attack.— Rep.

Let’s just go ahead and blame President Trump and all Republicans for everything and the kitchen sink shall we? Jayapal is now the second Democrat with a positive diagnosis of the Wuhan flu crud.
“Rep. Bonnie Watson Coleman, a 75-year-old cancer survivor, has tested positive for the coronavirus after taking shelter in a room with other lawmakers, some of whom refused to wear masks, during last week’s violent takeover of the U.S. Capitol by a pro-Trump mob.
“I received a positive test result for COVID-19, and am home resting at this time,” she said in a statement. “While I am experiencing mild, cold-like symptoms, I remain in good spirits and will continue to work on behalf of my constituents.””
Both women are absolutely 100% positive that it was the pro-Trump mob riots and nothing else that got them infected. Let’s roll tape shall we? Hark back to a few days prior when Nancy Pelosi was preparing to hang on to her speakership by a 2 vote margin. Not only where lawmakers from either party NOT social distancing on the House floor, you can bet multiple meetings were being held prior to the vote. Furthermore, as we’ve pointed out, it wasn’t just that. It was the fact that Nancy was so desperate for votes that she had several Democrats break quarantine to vote for her! If they hadn’t, Nancy wouldn’t be Speaker right now.
But SURE! Let’s blame the Republicans and the riots for you getting the virus!
Any Member who refuses to wear a mask should be fully held accountable for endangering our lives because of their selfish idiocy. I'm calling for every single Member who refuses to wear a mask in the Capitol to be fined and removed from the floor by the Sergeant at Arms.— Rep. Pramila Jayapal (@RepJayapal) January 12, 2021
Hey Pramila, you just MIGHT want to look into the mirror before you issue any more demands.
What’s missing in this video? A MASK!!
Yet Pramila Jayapal shrilly demands that only Republicans be held accountable because ORANGEMANBAD and those nasty Trump rioters!
Nancy’s Speaker vote was held on January 3rd. The atrocious Capitol protests happened WHEN? January 6th. Now, I’m not a scientist or medical doctor by any means. However, after having the Covid Wuhan flu information shoved down our throats for the last ten months, even I can tell you that Jayapal is lying through her teeth. She’s been running around the Capitol and her offices since at least January 2nd. I’d be willing to bet she’s had meetings even prior to that with lobbyists, other elected officials, Nancy herself, and staffers.
So, for Pramila Jayapal to declare with certainty that she was exposed on that day at that time by those hideous Republicans who were sheltering in place with her is hubris at its finest.
