Hypocrite California governor breaks his own COVID order

Empower Wisconsin | Nov. 19, 2020

And the Hypocrite of the day goes to … California Gov. Gavin Newsom.

The power-grabbing liberal has pulled the “emergency brake” on the state’s economy, closing down “nonessential” indoor businesses, issuing a mask mandate and limiting Californians’ liberty.

Meanwhile, the governor and his wife were caught on camera attending a birthday party at a posh restaurant in wine country — unmasked and failing to follow the same social distancing recommendations he has demanded.

As Fox News reports, the photos, obtained by FOX 11 in Los Angeles, were taken by a witness who said the governor’s group was being so loud the open sliding glass doors near where they were seated had to be closed.

Newsom is now begging pardon, calling his decision to attend the get-together a “bad mistake.”

“I should have stood up and … drove back to my house…The spirit of what I’m preaching all the time was contradicted,” he said. “ I need to preach and practice, not just preach.”

A spokesman for the governor told the news outlet that guests and the restaurant “followed all applicable state and county health guidance.” The photos suggest otherwise.

Newsom isn’t the first California big government lefty preaching health orders for thee but no for me. 

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein have each been caught indoors without masks. The Democrats have spent much of the pandemic pointing fingers at President Donald Trump and other Republicans for not wearing face coverings.
