Yet another Democrat leader violating their own Coronavirus restrictions.
Gov. Gavin Newsom attended a birthday party for adviser Jason Kinney at an upscale restaurant where nearly a dozen people all sat closely together without face masks.
EXCLUSIVE: We've obtained photos of Governor Gavin Newsom at the Napa dinner party he's in hot water over. The photos call into question just how outdoors the dinner was. A witness who took photos tells us his group was so loud, the sliding doors had to be closed. 10pm on @FOXLA pic.twitter.com/gtOVEwa864

Newsom apologized and said he wanted to “own” his mistake out of worry that residents would not take his strict lockdowns seriously.
To make matters worse, according to Politico some of California’s top brass doctors attended the dinner. Politico writes ” California Medical Association officials were among the guests seated next to Gov. Gavin Newsom at a top California political operative’s opulent birthday dinner at the French Laundry restaurant this month. CEO Dustin Corcoran and top CMA lobbyist Janus Norman both joined the dinner at the French Laundry, an elite Napa fine dining restaurant, to celebrate the 50th birthday of lobbyist and longtime Newsom adviser Jason Kinney, a representative of the powerful interest group confirmed Wednesday morning.”
Here are some other democrat leaders violating their lockdowns, Fox News reports:
Washington, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser was less contrite after traveling to Delaware to congratulate President-elect Joe Biden on his election victory, despite the state being on Bowser’s own travel advisory list. Bowser discussed the trip while holding a press conference on Monday, even though her order requires a 14-day quarantine following travel, NBC Washington reported.
Bowser insisted that the restriction does not apply to her situation because it was essential travel.
“I do a lot of things to advance the interests of the District of Columbia, and some of them are formal, and some of them are informal, but all of them are necessary,” Bowser said.
Another Democratic mayor, Chicago’s Lori Lightfoot, also faced backlash for urging residents to take new precautions soon after she had shared video of herself in a crowd and speaking without a mask following the presidential election. Just days later, she announced a “stay-at-home advisory” that says residents should only leave home for work, school, or other “essential needs.”

Other hypocritical Democrats include Nancy Pelosi getting her hair done maskless.
Democratic Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney got called out after he imposed a restriction against indoor dining in his city but was then spotted at a Maryland restaurant.
Rules for thee and not for me must be the democrat motto. Why should anyone abide by their extremely restrictive and destructive lockdowns when they don’t adhere to them themselves?
Comedian Chris Rock Says Democratic Leadership Let Coronavirus ‘Pandemic Come In’
Comedian Chris Rock has a surprising message for Democratic leadership; they were too busy trying to impeach Trump to focus on the coronavirus pandemic. Rock said they let the “pandemic come in.” In an interview with the New York Times, Rock went all-in on his assessment of 2020. While he did not have anything positive to say about Trump, he certainly had plenty to chastise Democrats for.
Rock compared the current government to the movie The Last Emperor, in which the emperor of China was only 5-years old. “There’s a kid and he’s the king. So I’m like, it’s all the Democrats’ fault. Because you knew that the emperor was 5 years old. And when the emperor’s 5 years old, they only lead in theory” said Rock.
And the lack of leadership Rock was most vocal on had to deal with the spread of COVID-19. Speaking about Democrats, Rock said, “Their thing was, ‘we’re going to get him impeached,’ which was never going to happen. You let the pandemic come in. Yes, we can blame Trump, but he’s really the 5-year-old.”
As for Republicans, Rock said they “tell outright lies” but it’s Democrats that “leave out key pieces of the truth that would lead to a more nuanced argument.” In conclusion, “it’s all fake news” he said. The Sun, which reported on Rock’s interview with the Times, brings up facts that support Rock’s accusations.
“Democrats were focused on impeaching Trump in January when the coronavirus began spreading in China,” wrote The Sun. Another gem the Sun reminds us of is when “Pelosi was shown on television ripping apart a copy of Trump’s State of the Union address, which noted that the White House ‘will take all necessary steps to safeguard our citizens from [the coronavirus] threat.”
Despite the fact that a 5-year-old emperor would likely not be nominated for not one, but two Nobel Peace Prizes obviously escaped Rock. At least he has an understanding of the damage the Democrats’ fanatical obsession with pursuing a Trump impeachment was for our nation.
BIDEN: We Can Stay Home During COVID Because “Some Black Woman” Stacked the Grocery Shelf
President Trump has proven he is the embodiment of a true leader after contracting the coronavirus while performing the duties of Commander in Chief, instead of keeping himself isolated in a bubble in the White House.
Vice President Joe Biden, on the other hand, has locked himself in his basement for months, leaving for mostly brief media appearances where he rarely takes questions from the press.
In a now-viral video clip, Biden credited people’s ability to stay sequestered in their homes during the COVID-19 pandemic because “some black woman was able to stack the grocery shelf.”
Why would Twitter delete a video that was nothing more than quoting a presidential candidate, @jack?

Fox News reported the full version of Biden’s comments:
“And they say, ‘Well, why in the hell would you say that Biden? You just talked about all these difficulties.’ Well, I’ll tell you why. Because the American public, the blinders have been taken off,” Biden told the roundtable attendees. “They’ve all of a sudden seen a hell of a lot clearer. They’re saying, ‘Jeeze, the reason I was able to stay sequestered in my home is because some Black woman was able to stack the grocery shelf. Or a young Hispanic is out there, these dreamers are out there, 60,000 of them acting as first responders and nurses and docs.’ Or all of a sudden people are realizing, ‘My Lord, these people have done so much. Not just Black, White, across the board, have done so much for me. We can do this. We can get things done.’ And I think they’re ready.”
Biden was quickly roasted on Twitter for his comments, with former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee pointing out the hypocrisy of the media for ignoring his comments. “He didn’t really say that, did he?” he wrote. “Yes, he did. If @realDonaldTrump said that he’d be called racist. But @POTUS didn’t say it. Joe did & the media won’t say a word about it.”
