House GOP Tells ‘Speaker Maskhole’ Nancy Pelosi To Shove it Following Idiotic New Mask Mandate

House Republicans told House Speaker Nancy Pelosi where she could shove her mask as the Democrat leader brings the return of an indoor mask mandate to inaugurate a forever pandemic.

“Heading to Senate floor with about 50 colleagues to demand we end the mask charade,” tweeted Texas Rep. Chip Roy as members congregated in the Capitol rotunda.

Lawmakers including longtime protestors of the original mask mandate such as Roy and Kentucky Rep. Thomas Massie, who were each fined in May for a similar protest, walked through the Capitol in a mass showing of civil disobedience.

Members joined Utah Sen. Mike Lee in the Senate who gave a speech opposing the mask requirement.

“I cannot fathom a legitimate reason to arrest a person for not wearing a mask,” Lee said. “I cannot fathom a legitimate reason for arresting anyone based on failure to wear a mask.”

Capitol Police threatened those on the hill, including lawmakers, with arrest for refusal to comply with the speaker’s new order.

On Wednesday, Attending Physician of the United States Congress Brian Monahan briefed Republicans on the new mandate while forgoing a mask himself.

“At times, Monahan was getting yelled at by Members for failing to explain the science behind the decision to reimpose mask mandates in the House of Representatives,” one Republican official in attendance told The Federalist. “He just couldn’t give a scientific reason as to why vaccinated Members should wear masks in one of the most vaccinated areas in the country.”

New York Democrat Rep. Jerry Nadler was recorded without a face mask Thursday by Montana Republican Rep. Matt Rosendale, who published the footage on Twitter.

Pelosi reinstated the mask mandate on Capitol Hill after the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) caved to political pressure to reverse its May guidance which allowed for vaccinated individuals to throw away the face mask. The new CDC recommendations out this week now encourage face masks indoors even for those protected from spreading the virus through prior infection or vaccination.
