Pelosi Caught Without Mask at Swingers Bar in D.C. With Rep. Yvette Clarke

Now, before you lose your mind over the title and the thought of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) at a swinger’s bar, let me explain. The name of the bar that she was at was Swingers.

The reason they call it Swingers is because, in addition to fancy cocktails and high-end street food, they have an adults-only mini-golf course or “crazy golf club,” as they call themselves. On the course, you are encouraged to drink, so Pelosi should fit right in.

Pelosi was at the bar with her arm around Rep. Yvette Clarke (D-NY), neither were wearing masks despite the city mandate to wear masks indoors in public businesses like bars and restaurants that is still in effect in Washington, D.C., and despite Pelosi’s constant promotion of mask-wearing.

Isn’t Pelosi the one always screaming “science, science, science” and pushing masks?

But here she was, blowing off the city mandate because rules just don’t apply to her. Indeed, she and Clarke appear to be speaking to a group and everyone listening to her was also blowing off the mask requirement as well. Pelosi was not actively eating or drinking, so she couldn’t even pull out that excuse.

Now, I’m all in for the foregoing masks. But then don’t be a huge hypocrite while you’re trying to impose it on other people.

Pelosi is fining Republicans like Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) thousands of dollars for not wearing masks in the House. Greene filed a lawsuit against Pelosi on the fines calling the requirement unconstitutional. According to Greene, at last report, her fines totaled more than $60,000. In July, we reported how the House was even threatening people with arrest for not wearing masks. Meanwhile, the Senate has not had a mask requirement.

Pelosi has her own history of blowing off COVID mandate regulations. Most recently, she was caught not wearing a mask at the Getty wedding in San Francisco, while in a huge packed crowd of people. She also officiated the wedding at City Hall maskless. This, while kids in California are forced to wear masks in school for hours on end.

But it’s typical Pelosi — do as I say, not as I do. Rules for thee, but not for me.
