Every infantry leader in history can tell you how to lead people in the most dangerous situations: From the front. You have to lead by example, otherwise it’s not leadership. No US Army private is charging an enemy machine gun nest while his lieutenant is stopping by The French Laundry for a $27,000 meal with friends. Democrats want the rest of us to take coronavirus seriously, but they don’t seem to take it seriously at all themselves. Just take a look at this partial list of Democrat jerks caught breaking their own rules.
Mayor Ethan Berkowitz: The married mayor of Anchorage, Alaska was forced to resign in October after the TV news anchor he was exchanging nude pictures with… wait, WHAT??? How did this story not make national news!? Anyway, the news anchor had a meltdown and announced to viewers that she was going to expose Mayor Berkowitz for raping kids. She never got to make that blockbuster report because she was arrested in the parking lot of the Anchorage TV station where she worked.
What’s that have to do with COVID? Well, nothing actually. But earlier in the year, when Berkowitz closed all indoor dining establishments in Anchorage, he roped off an entire city street so that the wine bistro that he owns could set up tents for outdoor dining. It’s good to be the king. Until that TV news anchor that you’re sexting with starts posting pictures of your bum on Facebook. Again… how was this story not national news?!
Mayor Michael Hancock: The mayor of Denver ordered everyone to follow his example by canceling their Thanksgiving plans. Then he jumped on a plane and flew to Mississippi for turkey and stuffing with his relatives.
Mayor Steve Adler: The mayor of Austin, TX really sort of takes the cake on coronavirus hypocrisy. He told the residents of his city to stay home, otherwise he was going to have to shut everything down again. He recorded the announcement on location at his family’s time share in Cabo San Lucas, where they had flown after attending a 20-person wedding at a hotel in Austin. Classy!
LA County Supervisor Sheila Kuehl: Ms. Kuehl – a Democrat, obviously – voted to shut down all outdoor dining in Los Angeles County. The order was set to take effect in 24 hours, so she made the most of it by driving to Malibu and having a nice meal. Not cool, Ms. Kuehl!
Mayor Jim Kenney: The mayor of Philadelphia shut down all dining in his city and then promptly flew to Chesapeake Bay, where he was caught having dinner. Indoors. Without a mask or social distancing. Because the COVID is so dangerous, ya know.
The Cuomo COVID Kooks: Governor Andrew Cuomo told everyone to cancel their Thanksgiving plans, then bragged that he was having Thanksgiving dinner with his elderly mother. When he got called out for it, he supposedly canceled his Thanksgiving plans. (But did he?) His brother Fredo at CNN is even worse. He allegedly caught COVID and then wandered around in the Hamptons with no mask on, spreading his Cuomo cooties everywhere. He’s also been photographed dining out and getting his hair cut.
Mayor Lori Lightfoot: First, the mayor of Chicago got caught getting her hair styled during the first lockdown, when haircuts for everyone else were banned. Then she went to a mask-less street party to celebrate Joe Biden’s fake election victory.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi: After dazzling us all with her personal COVID sacrifices by staying indoors with her $20,000 luxury freezers and gourmet ice cream, Pelosi got caught getting her hair done in a San Francisco salon (when all the other salons were shut down for the general public). Actual quote when she got caught: “It was clearly a setup. This salon owes me an apology.”
That’s quite a list, and we didn’t even get to Nancy Pelosi’s Nephew – the Governor of California – or Sen. Dianne Feinstein, or New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy, or that kooky governor in Michigan Gretchen Whitmer. There are probably a few others as well.
The point, though, is that none of these tyrants who are destroying the lives of their constituents seem to take coronavirus seriously. If they actually thought it was a deadly serious disease, they’d be following their own rules and leading by example. Must be nice to be in charge and boss everyone else around like that. As every single one of these COVID kooks moves to now ban Christmas, we can all rest assured that they will courageously not let the virus interrupt their own plans.
