Third Dem Member of Congress Comes Down With Virus, After Protest and Pelosi Vote

Earlier, we wrote how far left Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-WA) had been diagnosed with the Wuhan coronavirus.

Jayapal blamed Republicans, claiming that a bunch of the Congress was locked up together during the Capitol protest and some of the Republicans didn’t wear masks.

But as my colleague Sister Toldjah observed, Jayapal herself wasn’t wearing a mask when she was caught on video in close quarters with other people on video including Rep. Lisa Blount Rochester (D-DE) who was also not wearing a mask.

Not to mention that this followed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) pulling in Democrats who were positive for the virus and in quarantine to vote for her and having a big gathering of members for pictures on the floor. Talk about a super-spreader event in tight quarters.

Now, two more Democrats have announced that they’ve gotten it: Rep. Bonnie Watson Coleman (D-NJ) and Rep. Brad Schneider (D-CO). All three of the Democrats who got it got their first vaccine shots on Jan. 4. Now, that doesn’t mean that the vaccine doesn’t work. The vaccine takes time to build up and that’s also why you need a booster shot. But unfortunately, in the interim, before it builds up, you could theoretically still catch the virus as these three all appear to have done.

Coleman and Schneider are also blaming the Republicans not being masked. But so far, none of the people mentioned as not being masked has been announced to have had it. So how would they have given it to them? And if there was a Republican who tested positive, if Jayapal was herself not masked, how can we say it didn’t come from her or from the Pelosi super spreader event? The bottom line is they want to blame the Republicans, and who knows it may have been, but Jayapal and other Democrats also were maskless. So, if they’re making a to-do about masks, maybe they should be looking in the mirror on that one.

It’s really hypocritical when she goes after people when she herself wasn’t wearing one.

So, is she going to hold herself accountable?
