Sherrod Brown Slams Colleague For Not Wearing Mask During Senate Session

They are risking the health of Senate staffers in order to push through more unqualified judges. Sherrod Brown has had enough.

Senator Sherrod Brown had three important things to say on the Senate floor Monday.

1. The Senate is in session to push through more unqualified judges, but not to help those struggling financially as a result of COVID.

2. Biden won, Trump lost, get over it.

3. Republican colleagues should WEAR A DAMN MASK.

Democratic U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown, of Ohio, exchanged words with a Republican legislator who did not wear a face covering during session.

The video, which has now been viewed over 2.4 million times on Twitter, shows Sen. Brown asking fellow Sen. Dan Sullivan, of Alaska, to wear a mask to protect others in the area.

“I don’t need your instruction,” Sen. Sullivan responded.

“I know you don’t need my instruction, but there clearly isn’t much interest in this body in public health,” Sen. Brown said. “We have a president who hasn’t shown up at the coronavirus task force meeting in months. We have a majority leader who calls us back here to vote on an unqualified nominee.”
