During Tuesday’s joke of a hearing in the House Judiciary Committee, the only point of which seems to be for Democrats to attempt to “Gotcha” Attorney General Bill Barr on a variety of topics and hypothetical situations, Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) stopped the proceedings to bitch at Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) and a few others about proper face mask usage – while not wearing a mask.

Nadler accused the members of “violating the safety” of the members of the committee and showing how much they don’t care about others by not wearing a mask – as they sit six feet away from their colleagues – while his mask is off. And, “it’s not permissible,” he yelled, for the members to drink coffee or water without a mask on.
Jerry Nadler said that it’s not permissible for Republican members to remove their masks to drink a beverage forgetting that the moment he sat down he did that very thing drinking from a bottle of water. #jokehearing

Apparently it’s okay to eat or drink without a mask when not on Capitol Hill, as Nadler was pictured maskless at lunch Monday.

Of course, Democrats’ position on any kind of masking shifts with the wind.
Jerry Nadler just admonished the Committee for taking their masks off. All of the sudden Democrats are against unmasking.

Antifa’s a myth but the efficacy of masks is settled science, right, Jerry?
Masks are a myth. ~Jerry Nadler

During Nadler’s tiny rant, Rep. Cedric Richmond (D-LA) was also spotted without a mask. Surely Nadler will bitch him out, too.
