(ReliableNews.org) – For most of 2020, Democratic officials have lectured the American public about how they should handle the COVID-19 pandemic. Most recently they have suggested families should cancel their holiday plans and hole up in their homes alone. In the meantime, lawmakers on the Left haven’t even followed their own rules. Fox News’ Tucker Carlson exposed the hypocrisy on his show Wednesday, November 18.
Tucker Drops a Truth Bomb
On Tuesday, California Governor Gavin Newsom (D-CA) reimposed strict restrictions in the state. He said he was pulling the “emergency brake” as the number of COVID-19 cases skyrocketed.
More than 94% of the state is in the top tier of the coronavirus danger scale. The new restrictions closed bars and other businesses that do not offer food. Gyms are only allowed to offer workouts outside. Gatherings must be held outside as well, including church services and personal get-togethers.
Carlson pointed out the hypocrisy of lawmakers in the state. Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D), for example, ignored the restrictions in San Francisco earlier this year because she wanted her hair styled. She was even caught on video walking through the salon without a mask.
Then Newsom attended a birthday party recently that violated the state’s mandate, even as he closed businesses and chastised residents. Carlson said it seems as though Americans who “want to live like” human beings can’t unless they win an election.
Carlson is Half Right
Democrats in California aren’t the only ones who have ignored the rules. Their supporters flooded the streets when the media prematurely announced Joe Biden won the election, the Democratic officials in the cities did not make them disperse. They did the same thing during the BLM riots over the summer.
Carlson only got it half right. To be able to operate as a human being in America these days a person has to either be an elected Democrat or bow down to them.
