Mask-pushing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was apparently caught addressing an outdoor crowd of mask-less Democratic bigwigs in COVID-19-riddled Napa Valley over the weekend, according to video and tweets.
A clip of the close-quartered California fundraiser was posted on Facebook by Democratic Party donor and winemaker Kathryn Walt Hall — and promptly blasted out on Twitter.
The footage appeared to show dozens of unmasked people seated elbow to elbow at long luncheon tables as Pelosi (D-Calif.) gave a speech and masked waiters ambled between the listeners.
“All the servants fully masked,” tweeted journalist Glenn Greenwald. “The almost-entirely old, white, rich crowd of DCCC donors free to go maskless as they’re served.”
According to the CDC, Napa County is a coronavirus hotspot, garnering the designation of “high” for its current level of transmission. “High” is the most worrisome designation.
Pelosi has been a strong advocate of mask-wearing mandates, including in the House — although she has personally been caught apparently flouting rules in the past.
Some of Pelosi’s critics ripped her over the dining clip featuring maskless listeners.
