California Rep. Eric Swalwell has become just the latest in a long line of left-wing hypocrites who’ve fled their own tyrannically locked down locales for the liberty-loving Sunshine State, partying maskless and fancy-free after spending months slamming anti-mandate Republicans like Florida Governor Ron DeSantis as grandma-killing monsters.
Swalwell, a pro-mask, pro-vax, pro-mandate Democratic congressman from Gavin Newsom’s own perpetually shut-down state of California, was caught on camera vacationing in Florida, sitting in the lobby of the Loews Miami Beach Hotel sans Almighty Face Mask while holding his infant son and talking to a woman at close distance.

Hilariously, Swalwell recently accused Republicans of “prolonging” the pandemic, blaming them for schools shutting down and mask requirements going back into effect.
“As we end 2021, mired in a deadly pandemic, you should know who has prolonged it. THESE GUYS. Republican liars. Your vacation cancelled. Your kids back to virtual learning. And back to masks everywhere,” he tweeted on December 31, just days before being seen without a face mask in one of the evil Republican-led states that don’t mandate one.

But after getting caught sitting indoors without his own mask , Swalwell took a swipe at his critics, sarcastically mocking the Daily Mail for reporting the story.
They got me! Maskless, juggling a baby and a coffee while meeting with a Congolese queen. Pulitzer please! https://t.co/ai3RmuGM4q— Rep. Eric Swalwell (@RepSwalwell) January 5, 2022
He then suggested he was only forgoing his mask so he could drink coffee...
...– a claim that might have been valid had he been wearing a mask at the time that was simply pulled down from his face. But alas, he was not.
While I'm not a fan of masks myself, and certainly don't support mandating them for adults and especially children, perhaps there is one benefit to the face diapers after all: to filter out all the hot air constantly spewed from hypocritical Democrats.
