Democrat Hypocrites and Their Insincere Covid Apologies

Mish

Covid-related apologies keep mounting. I have a list.

Lockdowns For Thee Not Me

The WSJ compiled a nice list of Democrat Covid Hypocrites caught red-handed violating their own lockdowns.

  1. After Gavin Newsom, governor of the nation’s most locked-down state, got caught dining indoors at the French Laundry, the nation’s most difficult-to-reserve restaurant, he apologized: “The spirit of what I’m preaching all the time was contradicted and I’ve got to own that, so I’m going to apologize to you, because I need to preach and practice.”
  2. San Francisco Mayor London Breed also got caught eating out at the French Laundry. She apologized: “It doesn’t matter whether something is technically allowed or not. I need to hold myself to a higher standard and I will do better.”
  3. San Jose Mayor Sam Liccardo got caught violating Gov. Newsom’s ban on large Thanksgiving gatherings.  He apologized: “I made a mistake, I own it, and I should have been more astute to the specifics of the regulations.”
  4. When Denver Mayor Michael Hancock got caught flying to Mississippi for Thanksgiving after telling people to stay home, he said: “As a public official, whose conduct is rightly scrutinized for the message it sends to others, I apologize to the residents of Denver who see my decision as conflicting with the guidance to stay at home for all but essential travel.“
  5. Austin Mayor Steve Adler recorded a video urging Texans to stay home—from his vacation at a resort in Mexico. He apologized, “I made a mistake, and I apologize to the community. I will work to re-earn your trust.”
  6. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, caught getting her hair done in locked-down San Francisco, snapped, “I take responsibility for falling for a set-up.” 
  7. Washington Mayor Muriel Bowser, caught going to Joe Biden’s victory party in Delaware, called it “essential travel.”
  8. New York, Gov. Andrew Cuomo, had to disinvite his own mother from Thanksgiving dinner. A spokesman claimed that he had to work through the holiday.
  9. Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot joined a crowd celebrating President-elect Joe Biden’s win on Nov. 7.  She commented "There are times when we actually do need to have relief and come together, and I felt like that was one of those times.”

Point number 9 was from the USA Today not the WSJ. 

Question #1

  • Q1: What do these people all have in common?
  • A1: They are all Democrats.

Question #2

Should any of these hypocrites still be in office?

Republicans would most likely say no, by an overwhelming majority if not a unanimous vote. 

But think carefully about the reason. A pair of Tweets will show why.

Dear president, what about that balanced budget and reducing the debt?

If hypocrisy and lies were reasons to remove politicians, nearly all of the current slate in Congress would be out of a job.

I would add, and the president, but he will be gone soon enough anyway. But we can add a whole slew of past presidents can't we?

So is it better to set the wrong example and say the wrong thing or to say the right thing and set the bad example?

Places with cases exploding now may have the UK variant operating now--where the rate of spread WITH precautions, equals the previous rateof spread WITHOUT precautions.

But how would we know...

....Out of the U.K.'s 2.1 million cases, the COVID-19 Genomics Consortium has sequenced 137,000 SARS-CoV-2 genomes total....Contrast that with the United States, which has sequenced only about 51,000 of its 18 million cases....

Agreed. America is full of hypocrites: Republicans, Democrats, Libertarians, Independents, etc. The higher up the political ladder you go, the more important it is to be realistic and honest with your constituents. It is also important to lead by example.

Hopefully your new President will do a better job of being forthright and honest with his words. Hopefully he will set a good example with his actions. From what I have seen so far, while not perfect, he is a huge improvement.

He is taking over from the worst President the US has ever had, who lied constantly and certainly did not lead by example. Leadership begins at the top. I guess the clown you had for the last four years, thought he was in a Big Top.

It's funny that in the midst of a horrible pandemic year with so much personal and business carnage across the world, what is MSNBC TV running on Christmas day? The Dateline program which is cheerily all about murders and murder mysteries! How comforting...

All helpers, service providers and servants now carry telephones that take pictures and record videos so you cannot hide or deny that something happened anymore so they should modify their behaviour accordingly but they don't. Either they are not very intelligent (highly possible) or they don't care and feel that it will blow over because they have a friendly press and a captive electorate (equally likely). Which one is it?

It's okay, as long as they don't display a bellicose personality. Because, then we'd really know who the bad guy was.

They're Democrats, so it's okay because neither CNN nor MSNBC nor NPR nor any of the left friendly outlets will say anything substantive about it. Bow to your masters, plebs - it only gets better from here.

You don't understand, Newsome's magnificent hairdo actually kills corona virus. He was merely disinfecting an eating establishment to make it safe for The American People.

We started planning Christmas this year with one thing in mind... violating every rule possible laid down by "Governor" Gretchen Whitmer and the MDHHS. Dinner yesterday till midnight for the kids and their wives and grandchildren... All 23 of them showed up and we had a great time. Merry Christmas everyone.

Shocking. Politicians admitting wrongdoing, apologizing, and taking responsibility.

I much prefer that to the stonewalling, gaslighting, projection, ceaseless denials and rampant corruption.

The question is not whether hypocritical politicians should be recalled or held accountable ... nowhere to begin: the system is based on voter deception.

The real question is what to do with people voted in to enforce laws who break the laws they are themselves responsible to enforce. The answer seems obvious -- they should be charged and prosecuted. What have the democrats been shouting for years?

Nobody is above the law.

The voting booth should reconfigure the ballot lever to a dildo and require the Helots to use their mouths to make the selection of their next master, it also provides a keen preview of things to come for the voter.

C'mon guys this is not a surprise. These are politicians pretending to do stuff for us while they wallow in the money printed for them. They love telling us what to do, "they know best just listen to them" .
But, we keep voting these guys in year after year.....unbelievable.
