Just hours after signing an executive order requiring masks on federal property, President Biden and his family broke the new rule by posing maskless in front of the Lincoln Memorial. It’s a pattern of cheating (Where have we heard this before?) among politicians across the country.
You’ve heard of California Gov. Gavin Newsom attending a birthday party at the chic French Laundry Restaurant in Yountville, Calif., Nancy Pelosi getting her hair done at a San Francisco hair salon and New York Mayor Bill DeBlasio dancing the night away in Times Square on New Year’s Eve–all of them breaking COVID rules they imposed. Then there’s Mississippi Gov. Tate Reeves, who hosted three Christmas parties that broke his state’s guidance and Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot, busted for her visit to a hairstylist during a virus outbreak. Her excuse, “I’m the public face of this city. I’m on national media and out in the public eye.” Hypocrites, all of them!
Says John Stossel, “It seems that life can return to normal only if you’re a politician.” Here’s more of his report.
