During a press briefing of Wednesday, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi was questioned on why she called House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy a "moron" earlier that day.
"Is Kevin McCarthy a moron, and if so, why?" asked one reporter. Pelosi reportedly called McCarthy a "moron" after he voiced his opposition to the new mask mandate in the House, according to The Hill.
"I said earlier in my comment, science, science, science, and science," replied Pelosi. "On almost every subject that you can name, science is the answer.
"Whether it's the climate crisis, whether it's a health crisis, whether it's our preeminence in the world and technology, science, science, science, science," she continued.
"To say that wearing a mask is not based on science, I think is not wise, and that was my comment," Pelosi added.
In response to the spike in delta variant cases of coronavirus across the US, Capitol physician Brian Monahan reinstitute a mask mandate in the House, echoing a renewed push for people to once again mask up.
