Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash.) who tested positive for the coronavirus on Monday accused the Republicans she was locking down infected her with COVID-19 after they refused to wear masks during the Capitol riot last week.
Jayapal said in a statement.:
“Only hours after President Trump incited a deadly assault on our Capitol, our country, and our democracy, many Republicans still refused to take the bare minimum COVID-19 precaution and simply wear a damn mask in a crowded room during a pandemic — creating a superspreader event on top of a domestic terrorist attack,”
Jayapal’s office said she was locked down for several hours with Republicans who “not only cruelly refused to wear a mask but mocked colleagues and staff who offered them one.”
Jayapal called for members of Congress who refuse to wear a mask in the Capitol to face “serious fines” and be removed from the House floor by the sergeant-at-arms, saying:
This is not a joke. Our lives and our livelihoods are at risk, and anyone who refuses to wear a mask should be fully held accountable for endangering our lives because of their selfish idiocy,”
According to Jayapal, at least nine Republican lawmakers refused to wear masks while in lockdown.
Sice the Capitial Hill chose took place three Democratic Reps. Bonnie Watson Coleman (D-N.J.), Pramila Jayapal, and Brad Schneider (D-Ill.) have all announced they tested positive for COVID-19.
Watson Coleman who tested positive on Monday also issued a statement stating that she believes she was exposed during the lockdown by maskless Republicans.
Following the events of Wednesday, including sheltering with several colleagues who refused to wear masks, I decided to take a Covid test.
I have tested positive.https://t.co/wivlbwrmV0

Rep. Pramila Jayapal, You’re a Clown!
Let’s start off with the fact that, as of now, none of those nine maskless Republicans Jayapal claimed to have been in lockdown with have tested positive for COVID-19.
Of course, Jayapal screeching about getting infected with COVID-19, it begs the question:
“If Jayapal was wearing a mask, socially distancing herself from her colleagues and she washed her hands…Then how would those evil Republicans infect her?”
Well, we do know one-way Jayapal could have been infected with COVID-19.
That is if Rep. Pramila Jayapal refused to wear a mask, or cared little about socially distancing herself from others.
Of course, the media will never ask her these questions, since they have their “Evil Republicans Infected Me With COVID” headline.
But if she was asked, I’ll hazard a guess as to what Rep. Pramila Jayapal would say.
After giving her best bug-eyed ‘How Dare You?‘ look, Jayapal will swear she never removed her mask, and did to the best of her ability, given the situation, stayed away from all her colleagues!
Without a doubt, the media will accept her at her word, because as you know Democrats never lie, nor would ever politicize a situation.
If only we had a video of Jayapal being sequestered as the rioters were just starting to break into the capital…
So while Rep. Pramila Jayapal whined to every conceivable liberal-bias news network about those evil maskless Republicans infecting her with COVID-19.
Jayapal was captured on video at the time the rioters were entering the Capital, NOT WEARING A MASK, Nor socially distancing herself from others.
In fact, it seems Jayapal was far more interested in watching her phone than she was in putting on her mask.
The footage also shows that the other people who were also caught in the same chaos as Jayapal had already been wearing masks or were in the process of putting them on.
So I assume if any of those people around Rep. Jayapal have since tested positive for COVID, they could rightfully claim:
Due to the reckless actions of Democratic lawmaker Rep. Jayapal who refused to wear a mask, or put one on because she was too busy tweeting.
I’m now infected with COVID-19 because of Rep. Jayapal’s careless disregard for the safety of others.
