Fleeing Texas Dems Are COVID Super-Spreaders

Thus far, six of the lawmakers have contracted the virus and spread it to both Pelosi’s office and the White House.

Six of the Texas Democrat lawmakers who fled the Lone Star State last week have contracted COVID-19. Their self-promoting departure was a ridiculous PR stunt aimed at preventing a vote on an election integrity law as they promulgated the false narrative of their fighting against voter suppression. Adding insult to injury, they have further spread the virus to the staff of both House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the White House.

The hypocrisy aspect of this story seems to only be increasing. These fleeing Democrats not only shirked their own legislative duty, they flouted Joe Biden’s federal regulation requiring mask-wearing for air travel. Indeed, they proudly photographed themselves flying on a private charter jet sans masks.

U.S. Representative Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) offered a pointed rebuke of both these Democrats and the mainstream media’s biased coverage of the story: “Imagine if 50 GOP state reps skipped work, drank beer on a private jet while ignoring federal mask mandates, held a press conference to spread flagrant lies that’ve been debunked, and then infected the Speaker’s Office and White House with COVID. Just imagine.”

The Biden administration, which has been at the forefront of the Democrats’ misinformation campaign against voter integrity legislation, predictably refused to criticize the derelict and reckless Texas Democrats. Maintaining the “voter suppression” lie is too important. This was perfectly illustrated by White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki’s Tuesday comments: “Our message continues to be thanks for standing up for voting rights and the rights of Americans to have their voices heard at the voting booth, and we appreciate their efforts in that regard.”

And in yet another move that ironically downplays the very hysteria Biden himself sought to fuel with his “Facebook is killing people” comment, Psaki insisted that Biden would not alter his plans to meet with these COVID super-spreader “hero” Democrats. It’s no problem, Psaki asserted, because “if you are vaccinated, you are protected” and “if you get a case of COVID, it will be mild.” All the Texas Democrats say they were vaccinated. Evidently, promoting the fake narrative is worth risking Biden’s health and maybe leaving us with Kamala Harris.
