Rep. Maxine Waters spent months wagging a finger at Americans and lecturing about wearing protective face masks but, in the end, did not even follow her own orders.
The California Democrat was caught on camera recently without a face covering, making excuses about her non-compliance and hypocrisy. Fox News host Tucker Carlson shared a video clip of Waters on Tuesday in a segment on the double standards of Democrats who refuse to abide by the same rules they impose on everyone else.
Carlson called out one Democrat after another on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” for their self-righteous lectures on the need for Americans to stay masked up to prevent the spread of COVID-19. In a series of examples, he exposed their blatant hypocrisy, sharing a video of Waters who was recently caught maskless and did not even have one on her person.
“Back in July you may remember, Waters was all for masks,” Carlson said during his monologue Tuesday.
“In fact, she told us that Herman Cain deserved to die from coronavirus because he didn’t wear a mask at a Trump rally. Herman Cain was a bad person, Maxine declared, he had it coming,” the Fox News host added, referring to the former Republican presidential candidate who died in July after he was diagnosed with coronavirus and had attended an indoor campaign rally for President Trump in Tulsa, Okla.

“I’m going to send my condolences to the family of Herman Cain, who was a presidential candidate, who was a good friend of the president, who happened to have been at the rally in Tulsa, June 20th, with no mask on, with a group of people around him with no masks on,” Waters said in a video clip from July.
“And he’s dead. He died. He of course contacted (sic) the virus as a result of his attendance and without a mask there,” the congresswoman claimed without evidence.
“Oh, he didn’t wear a mask and he died,” Carlson mocked.
“He deserved it. That’s what you get when you don’t wear a mask, you die and no one mourns your passing, because you’re a bad person. It goes without saying that Maxine Waters takes masks seriously,” he added before breaking into a laugh at the statement.
“Of course she doesn’t. And today we proved it,” Carlson continued, explaining the video clip provided by Jason Giandomenico.
“He told us he saw Maxine Waters recently and guess what she wasn’t wearing? I think you know the answer. She wasn’t wearing a mask. So he confronted her. It’s all on video,” Carlson said, airing a portion of the clip.
“You’ve got to have your mask on, right?” the Democrat was asked as she stood making excuses for not wearing one or even having one ready to put on.
“That’s right. That’s right. We got our masks,” she said as she was handed a mask to put on.
“That’s right, and I don’t have my mask on. Not a big deal, it’s not like I’m Herman Cain or something,” Carlson quipped, mocking the lawmaker’s reaction.
Waters and her fellow Democrats have been admonishing Americans for months and ostracizing any who do not comply with their coronavirus orders. She even called out those “who have ignored the advice of experts & chose to endanger themselves & others” in a recent tweet in which she slammed President Donald Trump as well.
Of course we wish well all who are victims of #COVID19. However, we must call to account those who have ignored the advice of experts & chose to endanger themselves & others and thus become victims – that includes the President of the United States.

Yet, just like Waters, many Democrats have been outed for their own hypocrisy, as seen when House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was caught with her mask off at a San Francisco beauty salon and U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein who was seen recently walking inside a Washington D.C. airport terminal without wearing a protective face covering.

The double standard for Democrats could be seen in New York as well where Gov. Andrew Cuomo was caught on camera without a mask as he walked his dog.

“We are not thinking through the message behind all of this or its consequences,” Carlson said Tuesday.
“Democrats are framing total and unthinking obedience to their policies, which are haphazard, irrational, and not rooted in science. They are framing obedience to these things as a matter of morality and the media is totally fine with that. They don’t even care when the people who make the rules ignore them,” he added. “Only the rest of us are evil when we disobey them.”
