‘Morning Joe’ Hits House GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy for Mask ‘Stunt': ‘Dumbest Man in Washington’ (Video)
House minority leader Kevin McCarthy aroused the ire of MSNBC's Morning Joe hosts on Friday morning after working in Washington D.C. had pulled a mask "stunt".
In response to McCarthy's recent attack on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the Capitol Masked Mandate, presenter Joe Scarborough considered, “Are we really going to listen to this? Are we serious, like ... the dumbest man in Washington. I don't know if it is him or not. I don't know if he's just playing stupid on TV or if he's actually being stupid, but the question is, how many of these Republicans are vaccinated? How many members of the house are vaccinated? Because I know most of the Democrats are. We heard that there are Republicans who still haven't been vaccinated. How many of those House Republicans you saw right there fly back to districts that are still hot from infection?
McCarthy spoke out against the reintroduced mask mandate at his workplace during a press conference on the Capitol steps this week. He was surrounded by other Republicans who, as Scarborough pointed out, probably represented "fiery districts".
“Just ask: why don't you follow Governor Kay Ivey's lead? Why don't you follow the example of [Senate Minority Leader] Mitch McConnell, who actually spends campaign money to get the message across in his district? ”He asked.
"Mitch McConnell wears a mask!" Interjected co-host Mika Brzezinski.
The two discussed that wearing masks and other methods of fighting COVID-19 infections are not political and should not be treated as they are.
