Caught On Video: Congresswoman Who Blamed GOP For Giving Her Covid Was Actually Maskless

Jayapal is one of three lawmakers to test positive for the virus after sheltering during the Capitol attack

FOX NEWS – Democratic Rep. Pramila Jayapal, who announced Tuesday morning that she was diagnosed with the coronavirus and slammed Republicans who refused to wear masks as lawmakers were sheltering from the pro-Trump mob that attacked the Capitol, was filmed not wearing a mask at one point while lawmakers hid during the chaos.

“I just received a positive COVID-19 test result after being locked down in a secured room at the Capitol where several Republicans not only cruelly refused to wear a mask but recklessly mocked colleagues and staff who offered them one,” she said.

Jayapal, D-Wash., is one of the multiple members of Congress who has recently tested positive after sheltering with many lawmakers of both parties during the attack.

Punchbowl News last week published a video showing several GOP lawmakers apparently declining to wear masks as members of Congress hid from the mob.

The situation prompted Brian Monahan, the House attending physician, to recommend that lawmakers get tested for the virus.

But video published by CBS News showed Jayapal hiding in the House gallery along with other lawmakers while herself not wearing a mask for at least the two-minute duration of the video.

Jayapal was holding an “escape hood” — essentially a gas mask — throughout the video as well, though she did not put it on during the video.

Describing the chaos as she and others were stranded on the gallery level, Jayapal said in an interview with the Washington Post:

“You see that was a gas mask that some people actually put their gas masks on immediately, as they were really afraid for what was happening.”

It is not clear when or whether Jayapal eventually put on the escape hood. It’s also not clear how long she went without wearing some kind of face-covering beyond the two-minute CBS video.
