During Tuesday’s joke of a hearing in the House Judiciary Committee, the only point of which seems to be for Democrats to attempt to “Gotcha” Attorney General Bill Barr on a variety of topics and hypothetical situations, Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) stopped the proceedings to bitch at Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) and a few others about proper face mask usage – while not wearing a mask.

Nadler accused the members of “violating the safety” of the members of the committee and showing how much they don’t care about others by not wearing a mask – as they sit six feet away from their colleagues – while his mask is off. And, “it’s not permissible,” he yelled, for the members to drink coffee or water without a mask on.

Apparently it’s okay to eat or drink without a mask when not on Capitol Hill, as Nadler was pictured maskless at lunch Monday.

Of course, Democrats’ position on any kind of masking shifts with the wind.

Antifa’s a myth but the efficacy of masks is settled science, right, Jerry?

During Nadler’s tiny rant, Rep. Cedric Richmond (D-LA) was also spotted without a mask. Surely Nadler will bitch him out, too.
