Schneider is the third member of Congress to blame Republicans for not wearing masks in a secure location during the insurrection last week.

In an appearance on MSNBC on Monday morning, Schneider said he was “very concerned” about coronavirus exposure after seeing his colleagues refuse to wear masks during the lockdown.
“For whatever reason they chose not to put on a mask, they put the rest of us in danger,” he said.
“I called my wife to tell her I was safe. She was hysterical. I calmed her down, but I wanted nothing more than to come home and give her a hug. But because of what happened on the 6th, I have not been able to do that,” he continued. “I’m sleeping in the basement, I’m isolating, I’m wearing a mask when I’m in the house. And that’s the consequence of the selfishness and the arrogance of a few of these Republican members.”
“Their behavior was reprehensible,” Schneider said. “And it’s just really tragic that the selfishness and arrogance of a few Republican members put a lot of people at risk, including our staff.”
