Democrats are still trying to make hay out of the coronavirus.
The latest example is in the House of Representative.
And Nancy Pelosi gave one coronavirus order that left Republicans up in arms.
Democrats are trying to turn masks into a political issue by inflaming culture war tensions over people wearing them.
On Wednesday, Pelosi mandated that committee chairs had the ability to force members to wear masks during committee business.
The Hill reported:
Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) is asking chairs of House committees to require members on their panels to wear masks during proceedings amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Pelosi is asking the chairs to “enforce rules of decorum and exclude members who fail to comply,” a senior Democratic aide familiar with the matter told The Hill late Tuesday.
Updated guidance from Brian Monahan, the attending physician of Congress, cited broad consensus regarding the effectiveness of wearing masks to try to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.
Pelosi issued this order after some Democrats complained that Republican members were not wearing masks.
Masks are the latest flash point as so-called “public health experts” – many of whom torched their credibility by claiming Black Lives Matter protests were more important than social distancing measures – seek to expand government control over people’s lives by forcing them to wear masks at all times.
Democrats think this fight helps them because President Trump won’t wear a mask when he speaks in public despite there being absolutely no reason for him to do so.
So-called “experts,” fake news reporters, and Democrats don’t even bother to claim Trump or other Americans should wear masks because of “science.”
They insist it is “setting a good example” or “respecting” others.
