Chuck Grassley Tests Positive For COVID The Day After Ted Cruz Mocked Senators Who Wear Masks

Just a day after Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) mocked Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) for urging his colleagues to wear masks on the Senate floor, Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) has tested positive for coronavirus.

The Republican lawmaker announced the news in a Twitter post, saying, “I’ve tested positive for coronavirus. I’ll b following my doctors’ orders/CDC guidelines & continue to quarantine.”

It should be noted that Sen. Grassley is 87 years old and the second oldest member of the Senate, making him particularly vulnerable to a virus that has already killed more than 250,000 Americans


Nonetheless, as MSNBC‘s Joy Reid pointed out on Tuesday night, Grassley was on the Senate floor without a mask yesterday.

It’s Cruz, not Brown, who looks like the ‘complete ass’

On Monday, Ted Cruz went on Twitter and called Sherrod Brown a “complete ass” for urging his colleagues to wear masks on the Senate floor as a way to protect fellow senators and staff members.

Sen. Cruz threw a tantrum and accused the Ohio Democrat of wearing a mask only as an “ostentatious sign of fake virtue.”

It just so happens that Sen. Grassley – now infected with COVID – was on the Senate floor

when Sen. Brown was calling on his colleagues to use face coverings.

If anybody looks like a “complete ass” after this episode, it’s Ted Cruz – a man who would rather expose people to a deadly virus than wear a mask.
