Eric Swalwell Blows Up At House Staffer Over Masking: ‘You Don’t Tell Me What To Do!’

Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) swore at a House staffer Friday after a GOP aide told him he did not have to wear a mask anymore according to federal guidelines.

The Hill’s Scott Wong reported the incident over Twitter:

Another verbal altercation just happened in the House:[Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene’s (R-GA)] spokesman Nick Dyer told @RepSwalwell: “Biden says you can take off your mask” Swalwell confronted Dyer, got in his face and according to Dyer, said: “You don’t tell me what to f***ing do!”

Swalwell responded to Wong’s coverage, not disputing any part of the reported interaction and saying he should have been “more explicit.”

“I had a mask on as I stepped off the Floor. An aide with @mtgreenee yelled at me to take my mask off. No one should be bullied for wearing a mask. So I told the bully what I thought of his order. Predictably, he went speechless. I regret I wasn’t more explicit,” Swalwell, who is vaccinated, said.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced new guidance on mask-wearing for vaccinated people on Thursday, saying that those who have received the COVID-19 vaccine can go without wearing a mask in almost all situations.

    Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your article seem to be running off the screen in Ie. I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know. The design and style look great though! Hope you get the problem fixed soon. Kudos

    Howdy! Do you know if they make any plugins to protect against hackers? I’m kinda paranoid about losing everything I’ve worked hard on. Any recommendations?
