Politico’s co-congressional bureau chief pitched a hissy fit and publicly shamed a Gold Star family for not wearing face masks during a tour of the U.S. Capitol building.

Heather Caygle stalked the family of fallen Marine Sgt. Nicole Gee, one of the 13 Americans who were killed in a Muslim terrorist attack at the Kabul airport. They were being given a tour of Statuary Hall by Rep. Tom McClintock (R-CA).

The left-wing journalist snapped a photograph of the group and posted it on social media.


“Masks requirement in the House. Tours not allowed. Yet here we are — group of 9, only 2 in masks,” Caygle tattled on Twitter.

The backlash was severe.

“Tell me you’re a terrible human being without telling me you’re a terrible human being,” Donald Trump, Jr., wrote on Twitter.

“A reporter picking on a Gold Star family for being maskless in a WIDE EMPTY space is precisely why people despise the media. They’re vultures,” Erielle Davidson of the Jewish Institute for National Security of America similarly tweeted.

Rep. Jim Banks (R-IN) called out Caygle’s silence over a reports that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi had also been spotted without a face mask.

“On Tuesday, @SpeakerPelosi was hugging and shaking hands with over a dozen people without a mask. Not a word was reported from this journalist who is now smearing a Gold Star Family on a Capitol tour so far away she had to zoom in,” Banks wrote.

Caygle fired back that just because a loved one was blown up defending America is no reason to get special treatment.

“How does that exempt them from wearing a mask?” Caygle asked.
