US: Nancy Pelosi criticised for Democrats’ ‘no-mask, no social distancing’ fundraiser event at Napa

Netizens were quick to slam the Democratic party leader. The high profile guests at the elite event were seen not wearing masks and not following any social distancing protocols. Only the catering staff was seen wearing masks, drawing the attention of social media users to the sharp class divide.

On Sunday (August 22), Democratic leader and the Speaker of House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi came under fierce criticism for partaking in a Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) fundraiser in Napa Valley. The participants at the DCCC retreat were mostly white, who neither wore masks nor adhered to social distancing guidelines.

The video of the event was posted on Twitter by New York Times (NYT) reporter Kenneth P Vogel. He tweeted, “NANCY PELOSI is scheduled to be in Napa this weekend for a @DCCC event benefiting vulnerable House Democrats. Donations start at $100/ticket & go through $29k to chair.” Nancy Pelosi, who is the Speaker of the US House of Representatives, was seen interacting with the donors with no qualms about diversity or Coronavirus protocols.

Netizens were quick to slam the Democratic party leader. The high profile guests at the elite event were seen not wearing masks and not following any social distancing protocols. Only the catering staff was seen wearing masks, drawing the attention of social media users to the sharp class divide. Twitter user (@RubberCitySpeed) mocked, “Diverse crowd” while highlighting that the crowd comprised of only white people.

Another user, Kent Graham, pointed out, “I see the only diversity is amongst the wait staff”

Other Twitter user criticised Nancy Pelosi for flouting social distancing guidelines. One user wrote, “This lack of social distancing at a big gathering outdoors sends a very bad message and is irresponsible. Also big money should not be part of politics.”

Another user emphasised, “Two classes of people. Masked and unmasked.”

Another user pointed out how the rules varied for common people and the ruling class.

Twitter user (@AaronK510) wrote, “Guess they forgot there is a covid outbreak going on. and As Americans are dying and being left stranded they sip wine and have a dance party crazy!! And they wonder why people are pissed off”

Nancy Pelosi was also criticised for her insensitivity and inability to comprehend the Taliban crisis in Afghanistan. At a time when 1000s of American citizens are stranded in Afghanistan and assaulted by the Talibs, the Speaker of the US House of Representatives was busy raising funds for her party.
