Photos granted exclusively to Breitbart News show House Speaker Nancy Pelosi without a mask at a crowded indoor event, just a day after President Biden urged all Americans to resume wearing masks in the home. inside.
Photos appear to show Pelosi at a DC party hosted by the California State Society earlier in the evening with guests surrounding Pelosi, including a child, wearing masks – but Pelosi is nowhere to be found.
The event is said to have taken place at the Museum of American History. Tickets for the event state that all participants over the age of two are required to wear masks.
Drew Hammill, an official at Pelosi’s office, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
A source in Washington who obtained the photos and passed them on to Breitbart News said security personnel at the event asked them to put on their masks as soon as they arrived.
Pelosi’s maskless getaway comes just a day after President Biden urged Americans to resume wearing masks indoors, even if they are vaccinated.
“Sooner or later we’ll see cases of this new variant here in the United States,” Biden said. “Please wear your mask when you are indoors, in public places around other people. “
A message sent to all ticket holders for the event Pelosi attended asked attendees to wear masks, including children.
“All visitors two (2) years of age and older are required to wear a mask when visiting Smithsonian museums and interior spaces, regardless of their immunization status.”
This is not the first time that the Democratic speaker has flouted the same restrictive COVID guidelines put forward by her party.
At the height of the lockdowns in California, an unmasked Pelosi visited a local barber shop in San Francisco for blowout service, despite the California Democratic government forcing salons to close in clients for months, and had specifically asked salons to limit long brushings due to the spread of germs.
Joe Biden himself has been caught on several occasions flouting his own advice to hide himself when in close proximity to others. The latest incident happened just two days ago, when photos emerged of the president without a mask at a store in Nantucket, MA.
Despite this, the White House continues to insist that Biden does not flout official mask guidelines.
