Nancy Pelosi trolled for no mask at Swingers golf club: 'Mask it or casket, Karen'
A video has emerged apparently showing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Rep Yvette Clarke (D-N.Y.) at a Washington DC bar Tuesday night, November 16, violating the district's mask mandate. The clip obtained by the Daily Caller shows both Pelosi and Clarke speaking to a small group inside 'Swingers - The crazy golf club' in Dupont Circle.
Others in the video are also seen not wearing masks as Pelosi appears to have her arm around Clarke, who is smiling without a mask. This comes after Democratic DC Mayor Muriel Bowser announced Monday, November 15, that the indoor mask mandate will be lifted on November 22. In May, the CDC released guidelines stating that masks were no longer required to be worn indoors by fully vaccinated people in "most" situations. The agency has since altered the guidance to require masks inside in light of the spike in the delta variant of Covid-19.
The current mask mandate in DC dictates that masks must be worn inside “any business or establishment open to members of the public (including but not limited to: grocery stores, restaurants and bars (when not eating or drinking), places of worship, gyms, office buildings, libraries, indoor entertainment venues, and common areas of apartment or condominium complexes).”
Social media was inundated with criticisms of Pelosi as well as jokes about the "Swingers" golf club.

"Maskless swinging for me but not thee," one quipped on Twitter. "And don’t forget massless at the Getty wedding in CA two weekends ago! This lady loves a party!" another wrote. "I totally misunderstood the headline, which was disturbing for a minute. That said, rules are obviously only for peasants," a comment read.
"In all fairness, the amount of Botox that flows through her, must act as an off-label Covid protection?" someone else joked. "How many times do we have to see these hypocrites get caught before anything can be done?" another chimed in. "Mask it or casket, Karen," was one of the hilarious reminders on social media.

Pelosi has been accused of hypocrisy over mask mandates after she penalized House Republicans like Rep Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) thousands of dollars for not wearing masks in the House chamber. Greene responded to the fines with a lawsuit against Pelosi, arguing that the requirement was unconstitutional. She said her fines totaled more than $60,000 at the last report. While the House has threatened disciplinary action for not complying with the mandate, the Senate has no such requirement.
This is barely the first time Pelosi has blown off COVID regulations. Most recently, she was caught maskless at the lavish Getty wedding in San Francisco in the midst of a huge packed crowd of people. The Democrat leader even officiated the wedding at City Hall without a mask, according to Red State.
In August, MEAWW reported how Pelosi was blasted for her 'utter hypocrisy' as she hosted a maskless fundraiser in Napa Valley, California. Rep. Greene tweeted at the time, “@SpeakerPelosi does not care about #COVID. Democrats don’t care about covid. They only care about controlling you. Magical covid science: The virus stops spreading the minute you sit down to eat or when you speak in a microphone or if you are one of the elites. Liars.” House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy wrote, “Speaker Pelosi wants to lock you down again while she wines and dines with her political donors. It's utter hypocrisy.”
