(TargetLiberty.org) – Tracking the hypocrisy of Liberal politicians is becoming easier these days, particularly in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. Several high-profile Democratic leaders appear to have embraced the “do as I say” and “not as I get caught doing” mantra.
It’s bad enough Americans have to confront the personal and economic devastation accompanying the coronavirus outbreak. Still, they also have to wrestle with government-mandated restrictions their leaders have no intention of following themselves.
Below are three glaring examples of well known Democratic politicians caught in embarrassing moments while violating their own guidelines.
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) found herself the center of attention at the beginning of August after security camera footage captured her waltzing around a hair salon without a face covering, contrary to her own directive requiring the wearing of masks for House members. Making matters worse, she lashed out at President Donald Trump in June, calling him a “coward” for refusing to wear one. A couple of days later, she called for a national mask mandate, calling it “overdue.”
Austin, TX Mayor Steve Adler (D) posted a video on Facebook telling fellow Austinites to stay at home whenever possible on November 9. He added that now wasn’t the “time to relax” with coronavirus cases on the rise. However, on December 2, his hometown newspaper reported that Adler posted the video from a week-long vacation retreat in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.
California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) spent much of November warning Californians to avoid gathering in groups over the Thanksgiving holiday. However, a photographer captured him dining with friends at a fancy French restaurant outside of Napa. Several well-known lobbyists attended the dinner, and as one might expect, none of them wore masks.
It would take hours to list all the incidents of high-profile Democrats having to apologize after being caught traveling abroad, partying with friends, and visiting local businesses and salons contrary to their own coronavirus guidelines. Hypocrisy, thy name is Democrat.
