House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has been very stringent on the social distancing rules suggested by Doctors Fauci and Birx while much of the country remains in lockdown to varying degrees:
The American people have made it clear: we must maintain social distancing as we work to protect American lives, livelihoods, and the life of our democracy. @SquawkStreet #FamiliesFirst pic.twitter.com/7eVfHwKUWi

But the “you’re going to kill grandma” coronavirus warnings that were in place for protesters at state capitols who wanted to get their states back to work have obviously been suspended for protests Democrats wish to attend:

Pelosi’s got the “D” after her name, which means the normal rules don’t apply.
The House just passed historic rule changes so the members could vote by proxy to avoid the dangers of Covid.
Now she's walking around large crowds in protests. Kind of amazing dissonance. https://t.co/wRK6zaxK6t

As usual, do as Nancy says, not as she does.

I can't get a hair cut right now, but Nancy Pelosi, who is in the high-risk category for COVID-19 can go to a protest without any kind of social distancing.
I'm so sick of this. https://t.co/5z1GekGzED

Why did @SpeakerPelosi bring armed security, or security at all, to a peaceful protest? Seems weirdly inflammatory. Also, why are they clearing her a path? Why didn't she just walk among them? So odd. #Caring https://t.co/Jp59y3r0GF

But remember, they can't open the beaches or the gyms or even hair salons, people might spread COVID-19! https://t.co/4W78k8XoCM

Because nothing says you're a part of the movement like needing 8 armed body guards with you to go on a walk. https://t.co/Fo2bXnyjNw
