Radical left-wing Democrat Rashida Tlaib admitted the real reason why she wears a mask.

Unsurprisingly, it has nothing to do with heath or preventing the spread of coronavirus.

It turns out that she’s solely wearing the mask for political purposes.

Caught on camera, Tlaib says that she’s only wearing a mask because she was being tailed by a “Republican tracker.”

“The Michigan congresswoman made the admission while speaking to a maskless attendee at an event in Detroit featuring Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Secretary Marcia Fudge,” Fox News reports.

“Tlaib told the attendee that she only had the mask on because of the tracker, who was filming the exchange, after the person mistakenly thought Tlaib was scolding him for going maskless,” the report added.

On the video, Tlaib is heard saying, “Oh, no, oh, not you!”

“No, no, no – I’m just wearing it because I’ve got a Republican tracker here,” she added.

The congresswoman came under criticism in August when she was caught maskless on a dance floor in Dearborn, Michigan, while the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidance called for indoor masking due to high coronavirus case counts.

A day before the dance floor controversy, Tlaib had gone after Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., for posting a video encouraging Americans to resist the new CDC COVID-19 guidelines.

In response to the Republican lawmaker’s video, Tlaib posted a map of Kentucky showing many of the state’s counties in the elevated CDC risk categories.

“The KY Senator is throwing a tantrum as his state is being swallowed whole by this virus, again,” Tlaib tweeted. “People are getting sick and dying 98 counties in Kentucky have a high incidence rate of COVID-19. He needs to put politics aside, and put people first. Start resisting the virus.”

Tlaib’s office did not respond to Fox News’ request for comment on the video.
