- Pelosi: McCarthy a ‘moron’ for criticizing new House mask guidance
- Kevin McCarthy: ‘Bringing masks back is not a decision based on science’
- New mask guidance prompted by evidence vaccinated can spread Delta
A spokesperson for Nancy Pelosi confirmed that the House speaker does indeed consider minority leader Kevin McCarthy’s criticism of the new mask guidance to be “moronic”.
In response to a tweet about Pelosi’s comments on McCarthy, deputy chief of staff Drew Hammill said, “Unfortunately, we can’t verify this audio because of poor quality, but I can confirm that the Speaker believes that saying a mask requirement is ‘not a decision based on science’ is moronic.”

Make no mistake—The threat of bringing masks back is not a decision based on science, but a decision conjured up by liberal government officials who want to continue to live in a perpetual pandemic state.
House speaker Nancy Pelosi mocked minority leader Kevin McCarthy as a “moron” for criticizing the Capitol physician’s updated guidance to House members on wearing masks indoors.
Asked about the new guidance, the Democratic speaker said that decision is the “purview of the Capitol physician”. “I have nothing to say about that except we honor it,” Pelosi told reporters.
