The Rhode Island congressman felt the sneeze come as he sat behind fellow Democrat Yvette Clark, who was speaking at the time.

He did not use a tissue to catch germs and viewers noted that he did not use disinfectant.

After putting his mask back on, he was seen turning to speak to a colleague to his right.

Michigan Representative Brenda Lawrence, sitting to her left a few feet away, glared at her before turning back to her papers.

A snippet of the sneeze has been viewed over a million times on Twitter.

A disgusted viewer said: “In his hand too! Rude. No one taught him to use his elbow.”

Political scientist Seth Masket said: “What does he think the mask is for?”

Another viewer said: “I love the way he looked around to see if someone was looking like they weren’t on national television.”

Cicillin was one of three Democrats who wrote the impeachment article accusing the president of inciting insurgency before the deadly invasion of Capitol Hill last week.

Ten Republicans sided with opponents to pass the motion by 232-197 – making Trump the first president to be impeached twice.

President Nancy Pelosi chose Cicillin as one of the impeachment officials who will continue the Senate trial.

He tweeted yesterday: “The president is a clear and present danger to our republic. We will hold him accountable.”

‘CALAMITY’

President Trump has been accused of stoking a violent mob of supporters before they stormed Congress last Wednesday, killing five.

And during the siege hours, he praised the rioters as “very special” in a jaw-dropping Twitter video.

Politicians were forced to take shelter in a secure room – where some Republicans refused to wear masks amid the chaos.

Three members of the House have since tested positive for the coronavirus, and Congressional doctor Brian Monahan has warned that they all could have been exposed during the lockdown.

Yesterday, some 3,000 National Guard troops were stationed around Congress on new issues on the day of the impeachment debate.

The number of troops is expected to rise to 20,000 as a major security operation kicks in for Joe Biden’s inauguration next week.

Last night, Trump appeared in a new video calling for calm and calling the Capitol Riot a “calamity.”

He said: “Crowd violence goes against everything I believe in and everything our movement stands for.

“No true supporter of mine could ever condone political violence.”
