WATCH: Rep. Taylor-Greene calls Speaker Pelosi ‘queen of the house of hypocrites’ over COVID restrictions
Rep. Majorie Taylor-Greene (R-GA) appeared on Real America’s Voice Friday to blast Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) for setting COVID-19 restrictions on the House floor. While Pelosi demands that masks be worn on the floor, she’s often seen without one, for which Taylor-Greene dubbed her the “queen of the house of the hypocrites.”
During a press conference Wednesday, Pelosi suggested that vaccinated members stay clear of unvaccinated members “because they are selfishly an endangerment to other people, including staff people here.”
“This woman is mentally ill,’ Taylor-Greene told David Brody.
Then, Taylor-Greene drew a comparison between a mask mandate and the Holocaust in Europe, saying that masks are the equivalent to the gold star Jewish people were given at the time. “This is exactly the kind of abuse that Nancy Pelosi is talking about,” the Georgia representative said.
Pelosi has punished fellow lawmakers for not wearing a mask on the floor, while she was photographed at that Wednesday presser without a mask. She even shook hands and hugged people. However, Taylor-Greene and others have received fines for doing the same thing. The Georgia lawmaker said she’s received two separate fines in a tweet Friday.
“This is a woman that is hyper-focused on her own power and control,” Taylor-Greene said.
