We're Not All In This Together - Part 887
After Governor Newsom's French Laundry party helped kickstart a recall against him, you would think that other Democrats would learn. These past few weeks have outed much of California's lockdown elite. Past incidents exposed the hypocrisy of Governor Whitmer in Michigan, Governor Murphy in New Jersey and, of course, Governor Cuomo in New York.
Now it's on to Rhode Island.
The governor of Rhode Island is facing backlash this week after she was photographed at a wine and paint night just days after she had discouraged inessential activities to curb the spread of the coronavirus.
The picture, taken by Erica Oliveras last Friday, shows Democratic Gov. Gina Raimondo sitting at table in Barnaby’s Public House in Providence without a mask, WLNE reported.
Come on, Wine and Paint is very essential when you're a hard-working, but hypocritical, despot.
"It’s week two of our pause. I know it's been hard, but I want to thank every Rhode Islander who's following our guidance. Please, stay home except for essential activities & wear a mask anytime you’re with people you don’t live with. Together, we can turn our case numbers around," Raimondo had tweeted.
Together. I don't think she knows what that word means. Nor do any of the other Democrat apparatchiks who keep deploying it.
Writing on social media, Rhode Island's first female governor thanked people for their well-wishes after concerns she had caught Covid-19.
She said: 'Thank you to everyone who has reached out and offered well-wishes. I tested negative again today.
'I am fortunate to be feeling great and will continue working from home during my self-quarantine.'
The governor faced backlash after drinking inside a Providence bar without wearing a face mask the day before.
But remember, you can't gather together with family members for Christmas or Chanukah.
When the third week of the “pause” lifts on Dec. 21, Raimondo said, it will do so only partially. Specifically:
◘Social gatherings involving people from different households will remain prohibited.
◘Houses of worship will remain limited to 25% capacity or a maximum of 125 people.
◘Bar areas will remain closed.
Unless they're really essential forms of wine and paint.
