  • Newsom latest Democratic politician to flout own coronavirus guidelines

    https://www.foxnews.com/politics/newsom-latest-democratic-politician-to-flout-own-coronavirus-guidelines

    California Gov. Gavin Newsom is the latest of several Democratic leaders who have drawn controversy for appearing to violate their own coronavirus restrictions.

    Newsom was spotted at an upscale restaurant earlier this month, where attendees of a birthday party for adviser Jason Kinney were seated closely without face masks. Photos obtained by Fox 11 in Los Angeles showed nearly a dozen people sitting together.
    "The spirit of what I’m preaching all the time was contradicted,” Newsom told Fox 11 in Los Angeles said. “ I need to preach and practice, not just preach.”
    The news comes as Newsom had just announced new coronavirus restrictions this week. These include closing indoor dining in a majority of counties across the state as cases surge in California and across the country.
    Washington, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser was less contrite after traveling to Delaware to congratulate President-elect Joe Biden on his election victory, despite the state being on Bowser's own travel advisory list. Bowser discussed the trip while holding a press conference on Monday, even though her order requires a 14-day quarantine following travel, NBC Washington reported.

    Bowser insisted that the restriction does not apply to her situation because it was essential travel.

    Another Democratic mayor, Chicago's Lori Lightfoot, also faced backlash for urging residents to take new precautions soon after she had shared video of herself in a crowd and speaking without a mask following the presidential election. Just days later, she announced a "stay-at-home advisory" that says residents should only leave home for work, school, or other "essential needs."

    Earlier this year, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was caught maskless while getting hair treatment at a salon indoors, which had been forbidden by local ordinances at the time.

    Democratic Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney got called out after he imposed a restriction against indoor dining in his city but was then spotted at a Maryland restaurant. A spokesperson for the mayor told USA Today that the eatery was located in Cecil County, which borders Pennsylvania.

    You've got to wonder. If they don't really believe the covid risks they're touting to justify these extreme actions are real, what are these drastic governmental actions really for exactly, especially considering they're getting so much pushback for it?

        Here is a picture of Newsome (on the far left, ). Apparently he originally claimed that the birthday celebration was conducted outdoors which if true, then this pictures reveal that is certainly not the case.

        This is where they were which apparently can be closed off with french doors, which when done placed the party inside. Still, none of the at least 10 attendees wore a mask.

            I read this morning that several of those people were executives in the California Health Department or something similar...

              Source: California doctors' top brass attended French Laundry dinner with Newsom


              California Medical Association officials were among the guests seated next to Gov. Gavin Newsom at a top California political operative’s opulent birthday dinner at the French Laundry restaurant this month.

              CEO Dustin Corcoran and top CMA lobbyist Janus Norman both joined the dinner at the French Laundry, an elite Napa fine dining restaurant, to celebrate the 50th birthday of lobbyist and longtime Newsom adviser Jason Kinney, a representative of the powerful interest group confirmed Wednesday morning.

              The dinner where no masks are seen, and the diners are in close quarters with no social distancing, took place just a couple hours after the governor pushed state guidelines discouraging gatherings of more than three households. So it looks like besides violating mask and social distancing guidelines he also gathered with people from multiple households breaking the very rules that he has been preaching

                    Not to mention claiming that they actually served to slow the spread of the virus.

                        Oh, and it wasn't just Newsome's hypocritical butt that was at that dinner, it was MULTIPLE high-brass officials of the California Medical Association that were there.

                        Shows you just how worried they actually are, whilst trying to tell people they can't have Thanksgiving together, can't open their businesses, etc..

                            But it is different in the sense that these Dems are putting their own health directly at risk. There's no dispute that they're political hypocrites and phonies, this we already know and they demonstrate it on a continuous basis. But in all these cases pointed out by the OP, they're actually risking their own health of something they insist we live in abject fear of. So the only conclusion is that they don't really take covid as serious as they're pretending to. Then the obvious question from that is why?
