Simone Biles won nationals w/broken toes in both feet, worlds w/a kidney stone, and has carried the burden of being a face of sexual assault survivors as a national institution failed to support them— RIP Ghost Runner 2020-2021 ⚰️ (@kavithadavidson) July 27, 2021
Half of y'all yelling about "toughness" can't handle wearing a mask in Wegman's
Half of you questioning Simone Biles’ “toughness” can’t even wear a mask for five minutes in Starbucks. Have a seat.— Robert (@PeoplesCourt79) July 27, 2021
Cap Hill pool report: In response to a question about Kevin McCarthy saying a mask mandate is against the science, Pelosi responded, "He's such a moron."— Kyle Griffin (@kylegriffin1) July 28, 2021
PELOSI on the backlash to mask mandates: "That's the purview of the Capitol physician...nothing to say except we honor it."— Frank Thorp V (@frankthorp) July 28, 2021
Q: @GOPLeader McCarthy says it's against the science.
PELOSI: "He's such a moron."
A witness told me they saw GOP Rep. Lauren Boebert throw a mask back at a floor staffer when she was offered one while trying to walk onto the floor maskless. Members can now be fined in the House when maskless— Manu Raju (@mkraju) July 28, 2021
The daily pace of people getting their first shot is the highest it’s been in three weeks, CDC data reviewed by CNN shows. On a seven-day average, 382,106 people are starting their vaccination each day. That's a 35% increase over last week’s pace.— Kaitlan Collins (@kaitlancollins) July 28, 2021
It's ironic that the people who are most pissed about the new mask restrictions are the ones that are responsible for the new mask restrictions.— Max Weiss (@maxthegirl) July 27, 2021
Here’s the truth: The virus got very bad again because a big chunk of us can’t seem to do the responsible thing. That means we all need to mask up indoors again in dangerous hot spots. This pandemic is far from over.— George Takei (@GeorgeTakei) July 28, 2021
Also, get the hell vaccinated.
The CDC’s reversal on viral load among breakthrough vaccinated cases is based on an Indian study involving those w/ a non-US approved vaccine. Mask mandates coming back based on research that’s inapplicable from the get-go. This is J&J-pause-level incompetence. (1/2) https://t.co/f1vrbU3ql0— Rep. Peter Meijer (@RepMeijer) July 28, 2021
New: House Republican Lauren Boebert walked onto the House floor without a mask — and threw a mask back at a staffer who offered one to her, CNN reports. Masks are now once again required on the House floor.— Hugo Lowell (@hugolowell) July 28, 2021
