Rep. Rashida Tlaib partied without a mask at an indoor wedding reception on Sunday, defying Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines for the area.
The party was held in Wayne County, Michigan, on Sunday — a CDC-classified “substantial” risk for community transmission county, in which the CDC recommends masking indoors regardless of vaccination status.
The congresswoman can be seen dancing, holding hands, and hugging other people, none of whom appear to be wearing masks, in video footage uploaded to Instagram by the band that performed at the wedding, Bassam Saleh.
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

The party occurred the same day that Tlaib attacked Sen. Rand Paul, a Kentucky Republican, for urging Americans to ignore the ever-changing CDC guidelines.
“The KY Senator is throwing a tantrum as his state is being swallowed whole by this virus, again. People are getting sick and dying,” Tlaib wrote. “He needs to put politics aside, and put people first. Start resisting the virus.”

People are getting sick and dying.
98 counties in Kentucky have a high incidence rate of COVID-19.

Tlaib’s masking hypocrisy, whereby the elite ruling class lives by a different set of rules than the ones they create for everyone else, came amid controversy over former President Barack Obama’s maskless birthday party, which New York Times correspondent Annie Karni justified because the crowd was “sophisticated.”

Tlaib has also come under fire in recent months for promoting antisemitic movements and calling for the abolition of police.
