U.S. Rep. Diana DeGette inadvertently outed Democrats for trying to frame Republicans as the lone culprits who were maskless during the Capitol riot and thus responsible for a possible COVID-19 spread.
DeGette says she is one of the lawmakers contacted by the capitol physician Sunday and informed that someone among them had tested positive for the virus.
U.S. Rep. Pramila Jayapal of Washington state is the first Democrat to announce she’s tested positive and promptly blamed Republicans for refusing to wear masks.
To prove their point, Democrats produced a video of three Republicans declining to wear masks offered by U.S. Rep. Lisa Blunt Rochester of Delaware.
We thought Rochester, looked familiar. Here she is on her way to the undisclosed location.
And here’s Rochester on the floor just moments before, without a mask.

And the Democrat who has COVID who is blaming her diagnoses on Republicans not wearing a mask?
Here is Jayapal in the House chambers where lawmakers were expected to spend hours processing the election certification, not wearing a mask.
So she wasn’t wearing a mask, but blames Republicans gave her COVID because they weren’t wearing masks.
The Colorado media has also been too busy hailing Rep. Jason Crow as a hero for helping Democrats remain calm, to note the obvious.
The moral of this story, Democrats who don’t wear masks in glass houses should not throw stones.
And even though DeGette was wearing a mask, the CDC says she should be in quarantine until Jan. 20, well after the impeachment vote on Wednesday.
