Rep. Rashida Tlaib seemed to confirm that the Democrat fixation with masks is little more than political theatre when she was caught on camera admitting that the only reason why she was wearing one was that a Republican “tracker” was present.
The short video posted to Twitter by the Washington Free Beacon shows the Michigan congresswoman who was outside with a group of people during a visit to a Detroit neighborhood, addressing an unmasked man who appeared to believe that he was being called out for not wearing a mask only to be told by Tlaib that was not the case.
When the man apologized and put on his mask, the “Squad” member pulled down her own black face covering to say that he wasn’t being chastised and that the only reason why she had hers on was for the cameras.
‘Oh, no. oh, not you,’ she said,
“I’m just wearing it because I’ve got a Republican tracker here,” Tlaib admitted.

Her fessing up that the mask was all for show because of the “Republican tracker” refers to the individuals deployed by both parties to follow politicians around hoping to catch them making an embarrassing gaffe and, judging by the reaction, whoever was tracking Tlaib scored big.
Tlaib was flame-broiled on Twitter for her blatant hypocrisy.
“It’s all for show, we all know that,” the Twitter account for House Republicans noted.
I’m sorry but if the people demanding we wear masks like @RashidaTlaib aren’t wearing masks themselves…then why the hell should anyone listen to anything they say? Oh, we shouldn’t.

Rashida Tlaib is a fraud. While she works overtime to insure you & your children are forced to wear a mask for hours at a time.. She is allowed to gather with friends maskless.

Why do the Dems hate science?

It isn’t the first time that Tlaib has faced criticism over masks.
In August, she was busted when she was caught on video dancing and partying with over 100 maskless revelers at a wedding in Dearborn, an area inside of Wayne County that, according to the CDC, is an “orange” zone with a high transmission risk.
Democrat Rep. Rashida Tlaib partied last night with 100+ maskless people. Dems want your kids stuck in masks at school ALL DAY while they party maskless with their friends. Do not comply! Don’t give 1 more inch. In 2022 we WILL defeat the tyrants! Chip in: https://t.co/FGvUL6PziQ pic.twitter.com/6lg71dtv2f

Tlaib’s maskless frolicking came right after she savaged Kentucky Senator Rand Paul on Twitter when he called for Americans to resist the tyranny of the masks.
Once again, the suspicions of those who believe that, for the Democrats, COVID has very little to do with public health and everything to do with the raw exercise of power and the ruthless advancement of their extreme agenda appear to have been confirmed.
Like the brutal restrictions imposed in Democrat-controlled states and cities that are broken by the same leaders who insisted that they were necessary, the hypocrisy makes it clear that COVID is for the little people.
Whether it be Barack Obama’s 60th birthday bash where hundreds of maskless guests gathered in close confines to celebrate with the former president or Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s swanky Napa Valley fundraiser where the only masks were on the servants, or at the Emmy’s where the Hollywood elite cavorted bare-faced in their typical self-congratulatory orgy of indulgence under a special exception for celebrities, there are always two sets of rules.
It’s all a big show for Democrats, whether it be mask theatre or doddering Joe Biden’s increasing reliance on stage sets, and it becomes more obvious by the day.

So much for the party of science that has rejected the reality-based world.
