U.S. Representative Diana DeGette accidentally beat up the Democrats for trying to identify the Republicans as the only culprits who were maskless during the Capitol uprising, responsible for a possible spread of COVID-19.
DeGette says she was one of the lawmakers contacted by the Capitol doctor on Sunday, saying that someone among them tested positive for the virus.
Washington State representative Pramila Jayapal became the first Democrat to announce she tested positive and immediately accused Republicans of refusing to wear masks.
To prove their point, the Democrats produced a video of three Republicans refusing to wear masks offered by US representatives. Lisa Blunt Rochester from Delaware.
We thought Rochester looked familiar. Here she is on her way to the unknown place.
And here Rochester is on the floor shortly before, without a mask.
Look … I knew someone had to call him 🙏🏾 pic.twitter.com/ckh6uL1JPN

And the Democrat with COVID, the Republicans who don’t wear a mask, blame their diagnoses?
Here Jayapal is in the chambers of the house where lawmakers should spend hours processing the election certificate without wearing a mask.
So she didn’t wear a mask, but Republicans gave her COVID because they didn’t wear masks.
The Colorado media has also been too busy calling Rep. Jason Crow a hero to help the Democrats keep calm to notice the obvious.
The moral of this story is: Democrats who don’t wear masks in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones.
And even though DeGette wore a mask, the CDC says she should be in quarantine until January 20, long after Wednesday’s impeachment vote.
