Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi defended holding a large dinner for incoming members, arguing the event had “enhanced ventilation” and was "very spaced."

The news comes as Democrat leaders across the country urged Americans to cancel their traditional Thanksgiving with family members due to the coronavirus.

“House Dem and GOP leaders are holding respective dinners for new members,” NBC News correspondent Leigh Ann Caldwell reported.

Pelosi defended the dinner touting the approval of the Capitol physician.

“It’s very spaced,” Pelosi said.

But the news angered critics who highlighted the Democrats favor of social distancing restrictions and how they could justify holding such an event while Americans are told to cancel their celebrations.

“If the Capitol Hill physician signed off on this, he is dangerously misinformed. How is this modeling good behavior in the lead up to Thanksgiving. @SpeakerPelosi change your mind on this right now,” one Twitter user wrote.

“It is beyond reckless.”

“But seriously, terrible. And sets an awful example when you’re asking families not to get together for Thanksgiving. Find another creative way to welcome new folks, just as all companies are having to do with new employees,” another said.

“I can’t fathom who approved this asinine idea.”

“The rest of us are going to have sad little Thanksgivings without our families, but you do you, I guess,” another added.

The dinner comes after residents were warned to be ”vigilant about COVID" by Democrat D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser.

“Wear your mask, limit your trips. Don’t try to do everything all in the same day, from shopping, to dining, to getting your hair done,” Bowser said on Thursday.

“Be mindful of small gatherings,” she added.

“People who are in their home or in the home of a family member, around people that they know — they are letting their guards down.”

D.C.’s Phase Two Guidance bans “mass gatherings of more than 50 people.”

The guidance limits restaurants to 50 percent capacity “with tables placed so that patrons are at least 6 feet apart.”

Meanwhile, Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced a ten-person limit on gatherings ahead of Thanksgiving.

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot, another Democrat, outright urged Chicagoans to “cancel transitional Thanksgiving plans.”

But Lightfoot joined Biden-Harris supporters just days earlier without a mask to celebrate following the media calling the race for Joe Biden.

This isn't the first time Pelosi has been caught for her hypocrisy.

In September, the House speaker was caught breaching COVID-19 restrictions to visit the shuttered salon after security footage emerged online of the speaker getting her hair done without wearing a mask.
