Democrat Sen. Claire Celsi has routinely criticized people who do not always wear masks as “COVIDiots.”

Celsi has expressed anger and frustration numerous times about Iowans not wearing masks during the pandemic.

But, on Friday, she celebrated a groundbreaking that took place at Broadlawns Medical Center in Des Moines.

But she doesn’t seem to mind when those folks fail to socially distance and refuse to wear masks — at the groundbreaking of a new hospital floor.
