Psaki Gets an Earful on Twitter After Thanking VA School District for Mask Defiance

There's a masking showdown taking place in several Virginia counties after newly installed Gov. Glenn Youngkin issued an executive order that gave the power back to parents to decide whether they want to send their kids to school in a mask. Face coverings aren't banned, but state authorities can no longer mandate their use in educational facilities starting Jan. 24. 

Minutes after Youngkin's executive order came out, Arlington County said it will keep its mask requirement in place "as part of our layered approach to safety."

Among those thanking the school district for its defiance was White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki.

"Hi there. Arlington county parent here (don't believe you are @GlennYoungkin but correct me if I am wrong). Thank you to @APSVirginia for standing up for our kids, teachers and administrators and their safety in the midst of a transmissible variant," she tweeted. 

Social media users immediately jumped in to remind the press secretary that no one is stopping her from sending her kids to school with masks. 

Others reminded her about how effective school mask mandates are.

And, of course, that elections have consequences.
