So, where are the “wear a damn mask!” scolds now that 87-year-old Dianne Feinstein is walking around the Capitol without one?

This comes less than 24 hours after Sherrod Brown went viral for telling Republican Sen. Dan Sullivan of Alaska to wear a mask despite Sen. Sullivan not being in close proximity to anyone:
Once again, I asked my Republican colleagues to stop endangering all the Senate workers – and simply wear a mask when presiding over the Senate.
Once again, they refused. pic.twitter.com/lykJO8MWmI

How about you tag Sen. Feinstein is this?
Another senator is in quarantine today from exposure to COVID-19, and some Senate Republicans still won’t even wear a mask to protect Senate staff – let alone pass a bill to contain this virus and help struggling families. Thank you for fighting, @SenSherrodBrown. https://t.co/U8OCrBG7XR

Sen. Ted Cruz is right: So much “fake virtue” everywhere:
This is idiotic. @SherrodBrown is being a complete ass. He wears a mask to speak—when nobody is remotely near him—as an ostentatious sign of fake virtue.@DanSullivan_AK was over 50 feet away, presiding. Last I checked 50 feet is more than 6 feet. https://t.co/BoIGrAV7T1

Remember, the reason your business is closed and your kids can’t go to school is because we have to protect the most vulnerable in society. Like 87-year-old Senators:
As much as COVID appears to be a solved problem for the American ruling elite at this point with access to the second, super-expensive track of treatments, Senators that are a million years old aren't really the risk cases to be flaunting it https://t.co/saaJWdQDEV
