Earlier this week, Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi called for a “long overdue” mandatory face mask requirement, but a recent photo-op revealed she needs to practice what she preaches.

A photo on the speaker's House Twitter page shows her speaking with George Floyd's brother, Philonise Floyd, wearing a mask that only covers her bottom lip.

Then another photo shows Pelosi talking to Mr. Floyd with her entire mouth exposed wearing her mask on her chin.

Earlier this month, Pelosi gifted Floyd's brother a folded American flag incased in glass during a photo-op last Wednesday.

Floyd's brother wore a mask covering his nose and mouth as well as the two men pictured.

According to The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidance, people must wear a face mask in public settings when social distancing is not possible.

But in the photo of the flag presentation, Pelosi stands in proximity to the men, much closer than the recommended six-foot social-distance.

Pelosi later claimed the current non-mandatory requirement by the Centers for Disease Control was to avoid "offending" President Donald Trump.

“And my understanding is that the Centers for Disease Control has recommended the use of masks but not required it because they don’t want offend the president," Pelosi said.

“The president should be an example,” said Ms. Pelosi on ABC’s “This Week.”

“Real men wear masks. It’s not about protecting yourself; it’s about protecting others.”

White House officials said both President Trump and Vice President Mike Pence are tested for COVID-19 daily.

Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden also vowed that he would force Americans to wear masks in public if elected president.

When asked if he would use “federal leverage” to mandate mask-wearing, Biden replied, “Yes, I would from an executive standpoint, yes I would."
