(RepublicanNews.org) – Democrats are good at telling people what to do — not so good at heeding their own directives. Such is the case with quarantines, curfews, and mask restrictions imposed to combat the spread of the COVID-19 virus.
America has seen the Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) strutting around a San Francisco hair salon without a mask in defiance of local restrictions in early September. Nevermind the fact salons and barbershops weren’t supposed to be open for business at the time.
Denver’s Democratic Mayor Michael Hancock was caught traveling to Mississippi to visit his wife and daughter for the Thanksgiving holiday in defiance of his own directives. News of his hypocrisy came to light a couple of hours after he posted a tweet urging residents to avoid travel and host family get-togethers online instead of in person.
But wait for it. Wait. We’ve got a doozy for you coming up!
Rhode Island Governor Gets Caught
Gina Raimondo, Rhode Island’s Democratic governor, stepped into the land of hypocrites last weekend when a photographer managed to capture her on film sitting at a Providence wine bar without a mask after telling her residents to avoid participating in any nonessential activities.
Gov. Raimondo still in quarantine tonight. The governor getting backlash on social media after a picture was taken of her. I spoke to the person who took the photo who says it doesn't tell the full story.
Hear from her & whether the event is allowed under the pause only at 5 pic.twitter.com/VxV4EEadhc

But wait, it gets better. The very next day, she had to go into quarantine after learning Rhode Island’s Health Director Dr. Nicole Alexander-Scott tested positive for COVID-19 earlier that day. One can imagine that was little comfort to people who visited Barnaby’s Public House the same day as her.
Photographer Erica Oliveras did say the governor wore her mask when she wasn’t drinking wine. However, several people questioned by a local ABC affiliate expressed outrage at Raimondo for being out in public drinking wine, defying her own advice.
