Another major Democrat is beset by scandal.
It’s causing their party a major headache.
Now, this top Democrat was caught breaking the law in one shocking photo.
Some places are taking it too far when it comes to the measures they’re taking to combat the coronavirus.
Social distancing is necessary, but some places are going too far.
San Diego sheriff’s deputies have issued citations to people for “watching the sunset” because they were breaking California’s stay-at-home order.
The department posted on Twitter: “Everyone is required to stay home except to get food, care for a relative or friend, get necessary health care, or go to an essential job. 22 people were cited near the beach in @EncinitasGov. Complacency is the enemy.”
People walking along the beach were likely keeping well within the 6 feet official requirement for social distancing before the police officers handed out their citations.
Everyone should keep to all local authorities’ guidelines when it comes to social distancing, but authorities should try to make sure their rules are reasonable.
And Democrats aren’t helping the situation by breaking very reasonable social distancing measures.
Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot got caught getting a haircut during her city’s lockdown.
Her excuse was that she needed the haircut since she was “the face of the city.”
According to the Washington Examiner:
Photos of Lightfoot’s haircut were posted on social media Sunday, which sparked backlash considering barbershops and salons are shut down under the Illinois stay-at-home order. The woman who posted the pictures said that she “had the pleasure of giving Mayor Lightfoot a hair trim,” according to WGN TV.
The mayor and the stylist were not standing six feet apart from one another in the photos, and neither was wearing a protective mask. Lightfoot was asked about her haircut during a press conference on Monday.
“I think what really people want to talk about is, we’re talking about people dying here. We’re talking about significant health disparities. I think that’s what people care most about,” Lightfoot said, trying to defend herself according to the Chicago Tribune. “The woman who cut my hair had a mask and gloves on, so we are, I am practicing what I’m preaching.”
The reporter reminded her about her previous “stay home, save lives” public service announcements in which she reproved a person having their hair done, saying, “Getting your roots done is not essential.”
Lightfoot then claimed that she should be held to a different standard because “I’m the public face of this city. I’m on national media, and I’m out in the public eye,” and added, “I’m a person who, I take my personal hygiene very seriously. As I said, I felt like I needed to have a haircut.”
What she’s telling the public is that she thinks the rules are for other people.
She’s the public face of the city, people are going to follow her example.
And the example she’s shown is that it’s okay to hypocritically engage in social behaviors that have a high risk of contracting the coronavirus.
