‘Daily Show’ Creates Great New Word To Describe House GOP Anger At Wearing Masks Again

House Republicans are fuming at the reimposed COVID-19 precaution and the Comedy Central show had some fun with it.

Masks are mandated again in the House, and Republicans are furious.

On Thursday, a large group marched on the Senate ― where the wearing of masks is mainly voluntary ― to protest the rule.

“The Daily Show with Trevor Noah” responded with a great new word.

“Karensurrection (noun),” the Comedy Central program cracked on Twitter at footage of the maskless GOP lawmakers making their stand.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) restored the face mask policy this week amid concerns over the spread of the more transmissible delta variant of the coronavirus.

All House members and staff — even those who are fully vaccinated — must now wear a “well-fitted, medical-grade, filtration face mask” at work, according to guidelines issued by Dr. Brian Monahan, Congress’ attending physician.
