Democrat leaders, for an example, in Chicago, Michigan, and in NYC do the exact same thing. Do as I say, not as I do while I wreck your lives…
“We’re Not All In This Together”: Pelosi Edition
First up, Governor Murphy of New Jersey was caught dining-in. The grandma-killer claimed that he had been taking refuge from a downpour. And Mayor Lightfoot of Chicago, who had already been caught getting a haircut, headed off to Maine for a family vacation.
Of course this sort of hypocrisy is typical of lockdown Democrats, as I documented back in June.
Governor J.B. Pritzker’s wife and daughter enjoyed the lockdown far from Illinois on their equestrian estate near Palm Beach, and then headed to the 230-acre horse farm in Wisconsin that the Illinois boss had bought his wife as an anniversary present. After claiming that his family deserved privacy and was being endangered by reports of his hypocrisy, the billionaire contended that their travel was essential.
Not only was it essential for Pritzker’s family to vacation on one massive horse ranch and then another, but it was essential for Illinois workers to travel to Wisconsin to help build a huge home on the ranch. Local residents reported 20 to 30 trucks a day coming from Chicago to labor on this essential project.
“They’re operating an essential function. Construction is an essential function,” Pritzker whined.
Virginia’s Governor Northam who didn’t wear a mask to the beach before ordering everyone to wear masks. New Mexico’s Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham who told non-essential businesses they had to shut down and then had a non-essential business open up so she could get some expensive jewelry.
Michigan’s Governor Whitmer had issued orders banning just about everything. And then a marina operator got a call from her husband about getting their boat in the water for Memorial Day.
“I am the husband to the governor; will this make a difference?” Whitmer’s husband asked.
So now Speaker Pelosi got caught Lightfooting.
