Rep. Eric Swalwell slams Marjorie Taylor Greene's spokesman during mask confrontation: 'You don't tell me what to f---ing do'
  • "You don't tell me what to f---ing do," Rep. Eric Swalwell told Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene's spokesman on Friday
  • The confrontation came after Greene's staffer told Swalwell to take off his mask at the Capitol.
  • The CDC announced on Thursday that fully-vaccinated people no longer need to wear masks.
Democratic Rep. Eric Swalwell on Friday scolded Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene's spokesman for telling him to remove his mask.

The altercation first reported by The Hill involved Greene's spokesman, Nick Dyer, telling the California congressman: "Biden says you can take off your mask."

According to Swalwell, Dyer shouted at him for wearing a mask as he stepped off the House floor. Swalwell confronted Dyer and replied, "You don't tell me what to f---ing do!"

"No one should be bullied for wearing a mask. So I told the bully what I thought of his order," Swalwell tweeted after the incident. "Predictably, he went speechless. I regret I wasn't more explicit."

... The Senate does not have a mask mandate for its members, but the House still requires lawmakers to wear a mask on the floor. Those without masks can face fines up to $2,500. The penalties were established in response to the January 6 Capitol insurrection, when several lawmakers sheltered in place together but many were maskless. At least a handful of lawmakers tested positive for coronavirus afterward.
