Democratic California Rep. Eric Swalwell rebuffed Nick Dyer, spokesman for Republican Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, for telling him that he could ditch his mask.
The Hill’s Scott Wong reported on the confrontation, saying that Dyer had approached Swallwell and informed him, “Biden says you can take off your mask.”
“Swalwell confronted Dyer, got in his face and according to Dyer, said: ‘You don’t tell me what to f**king do!’” Wong continued.
Wong added clarification that although he had witnessed a confrontation between the two, he had not been close enough to hear exactly what was said.
Swalwell appeared to confirm Dyer’s version of events, however, sharing Wong’s tweet and adding, “I had a mask on as I stepped off the Floor. An aide with @mtgreenee yelled at me to take my mask off. No one should be bullied for wearing a mask. So I told the bully what I thought of his order. Predictably, he went speechless. I regret I wasn’t more explicit.”
Republicans have petitioned House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to lift the mask requirement on the House floor. Thus far, Pelosi has said that the mask rule will remain in place.
