WASHINGTON — During Monday evening's session at Capitol Hill, Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) took aim at Sen. Dan Sullivan (R-Alaska) for not wearing a mask.

“I start by asking the presiding officer to wear a mask," Brown said.

“I don’t wear a mask when I’m speaking,” Sullivan said. “I don’t need your instruction.”

“We have a majority leader who calls us back here to vote on an unqualified nominee and, at the same time, to vote for judge after judge after judge, exposing all the people who can’t say anything … and expose all the staff here,” said Brown. “The majority leader just doesn’t seem to care.”

The moment has since gone viral on Twitter, being shared across the country thousands of times.

Sullivan hasn’t tweeted anything about the incident.
