Mark Meadows walks away after reporters ask him to answer questions with a mask on
White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows is unwilling to work within mask guidelines.
After President Trump tested positive for COVID-19 10 days ago, Meadows stayed nearby and even escorted him to and from the hospital. But Meadows hasn't stopped traveling around the Capitol either after being exposed to COVID-19.
On Monday, ahead of Amy Coney Barrett's Supreme Court hearing, Meadows met reporters and took off his mask to answer their questions. When they asked him to put his mask back on, Meadows did so - and then went away and said, "I'm not going to speak through the mask."
Meadows wasn't the only one in Washington who refused to wear a mask on Monday. Senator Mike Lee (R-Utah), who tested positive for COVID-19 10 days ago, delivered his opening speech at Barrett's hearing without a mask, although he could have done so from home.
