The Capitol’s attending physician late Tuesday night reinstated the mask mandate inside the Capitol complex on the House side due to rising Covid cases.
GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy said the mask mandate goes against the science.
Pelosi said McCarthy is a “moron” when asked about his comment on the mask mandate.

A reporter asked Pelosi about her “moron” comment.
“Is Kevin McCarthy a moron, and if so why?” the reporter asked Pelosi.
“To say that wearing a mask is not based on science, I think, is not wise, and that was my comment, and that’s all I’m going to say about that.” Pelosi said.
