Have you lost track of the number of Democrat leaders who have been caught violating their own COVID lockdown rules?
It’s hard to keep up, since it seems to happen a few times a month.
In Rhode Island, Democrat Governor Gina Raimondo is the latest to prove she is a complete hypocrite.
She has advised residents of the state to stay home and wear masks, but she was recently caught doing neither of those things.
FOX News reports:
Democratic governor encourages people to stay home, gets caught out at wine bar
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.
Oliveras told the station that backlash over the photo was blown out of proportion because Raimondo had only taken off the mask to drink her wine.
Still, others felt that Raimondo’s actions were hypocritical, given that four days prior she urged Rhode Islanders in a tweet to “stay home except for essential activities & wear a mask anytime you’re with people you don’t live with.”
See Raimondo’s tweets below:
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.

Today, I’m announcing that we are extending our pause one more week, ending on Sunday, December 20. pic.twitter.com/cp4fehFkZO

And now, here she is sitting in a wine bar:
Meet Rhode Island's Gov Gina Raimondo – she told her citizens to stay home – she said they couldn't even go to a friends house for a visit.
And this is Gina all gussied up at a wine bar, mask-free for a xmas wine/art event.

It’s astounding how many times this has happened.
These people have no credibility.
