Default For California Governor the Coronavirus Message Is Do as I Say, Not as I Dine

The article pretty well sums it up. This is typical of many of our political leaders these days. Either they don't believe what they are telling us about how to live our lives, or they just don't care. Either way, Newsom is just one of many of the elite class of officials that needs to be sent packing.

For California Governor the Coronavirus Message Is Do as I Say, Not as I Dine

A meal at the French Laundry? A junket to Maui? California’s Democratic leaders have put strict measures in place. If only they would follow them.

SAN FRANCISCO — It was an intimate meal in a wood-paneled, private dining room in one of California’s most exclusive restaurants. No one around the table wore masks, not the lobbyists, not even the governor.

Photos that surfaced this week of a dinner at the French Laundry, a temple of haute cuisine in Napa Valley where some prix fixe meals go for $450 per person, have sparked outrage in a state where Democratic leaders have repeatedly admonished residents to be extra vigilant amid the biggest spike in infections since the pandemic began.

Gov. Gavin Newsom, who attended the dinner with his wife, has apologized, calling it a “bad mistake.”

But that has not assuaged his critics, who point to a cascade of other instances when Democratic leaders in California have been caught flouting the state’s coronavirus orders and guidelines. The revelations come as Mr. Newsom and other officials have asked Californians to make sacrifices to stop the spread of the virus, most recently beseeching them to stay home and avoid visiting extended family over Thanksgiving.

This is not relegated to the Liberal elites in California, either...

Tons of Democrat politicians who have demanded no one gather because of covid were dancing in the crowded streets because of the election...Because shut up...

And it is not regulated to Democrats. There are a few RINO's that are acting as dictators while doing whatever they wish in private.

Has there EVER been a Democrat that has walked the walk, that they want to force on others? I say "Nay Nay"

Here's Governor Murphy eating dinner with his family, indoors, and no one at the table with a mask...

At this point, we should have articles about politicians that DO adhere to the strict regulations...It would be a lot shorter...

COVID-19 rules appear ignored at birthday party featuring Brooklyn political players



Quote:
Adherence to COVID regulations was checked at the door at a recent birthday party featuring a number of Kings County powerhouses.

Photos of a celebration for Carlo Scissura, head of the powerful construction trade organization New York Building Congress, show revelers in close quarters without masks.

Attendees included Deputy Brooklyn Borough President Ingrid Lewis-Martin and former Brooklyn Democratic Party Chairman Frank Seddio.

In one image, about two dozen people are seen mingling with one another in an ornate dining area while celebrating Scissura’s 50th. Only two of them are visibly wearing masks.

In another shot, there are a dozen people crammed in the dining area, with just one person wearing a mask. Seddio can be seen in the background chatting with Lewis-Martin — neither of them with a mask.


Scissura said the event was a “surprise party” thrown by unnamed friends, adding that everyone was given a mask and guests had their temperatures taken before entering.

“This is a particularly trying time and there were shortcomings that I regret,” he said in a statement. “I greatly appreciate the gesture of my friends to throw me a surprise party, but we all must follow strict protocols so we can get past this pandemic.”

The party happened on Saturday, according to Lewis-Martin.

Days earlier, Gov. Cuomo ordered New Yorkers to limit private gatherings to no more than 10 people, part of a series of restrictions as the coronavirus outbreak worsens.

Take this as a cautionary tale. That governor is now under quarantine.

I am certain the thousands of small businesses bankrupted by Governor Newsom's imperial dictates will be comforted with his paid vacation "quarantine".
