Rep. David Cicilline faces backlash for taking mask off and sneezing into his hand

Democrat U.S. Rep. David Cicilline (D-RI) was caught on video pulling his mask down to sneeze into his hand while on the House floor.

WATCH:

Impeachment manager Cicilline was taking part in the Democrats’ effort to impeach President Donald Trump for a second time.

The Democrat was sat behind Rep. Yvette Clark (D-NY), who was speaking at the time.

He then pulled down his mask and sneezed into his left hand.

Afterward, Cicilline put his mask back in place.

Just moments later, he left his seat.

Upon his return, he put the same hand he used to sneeze on Clark’s shoulder.

Democrats have called for financial penalties against congress members who fail to wear a mask on the floor.

Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-WA) blamed Republicans for contracting the coronavirus and called for “serious fines” for those who refuse to wear one.

“Additionally, any Member who refuses to wear a mask should be immediately removed from the floor by the Sergeant at Arms," she said.

"This is not a joke. Our lives and our livelihoods are at risk, and anyone who refuses to wear a mask should be fully held accountable for endangering our lives because of their selfish idiocy,” she claimed.

A $1,000-a-day fine was proposed by Rep. Debbie Dingell (D-MI) for members failing to comply.

“We’re done playing games. Either have some common sense and wear a damn mask or pay a fine. It’s not that complicated,” Dingell said, according to the Detroit News.

This is not the first time Democrats have been caught flouting their own rules.

Last year, former Vice President Joe Biden was caught in a similar incident where he pulled down his protective mask down to cough into his hand.

Biden faced fire across social media for flouting basic hygiene rules.

In September, Democrat Sen. Dianne Feinstein faced backlash for not wearing a mask while at an airport just months after she demanded in a letter to the Federal Aviation Administration that “all airport and airline employees and passengers” wear masks.
