U.S. lawmakers and their allies in the news media have been caught repeatedly violating their own Covid-19 guidance.
Dr. Deborah Birx is the latest public official to be exposed as a hypocrite for her do as I say, not as I do Covid-19 rules.
It was reported earlier this week that Dr. Birx traveled with family out of state for Thanksgiving after issuing a public statement urging Americans not to travel for Thanksgiving.
Birx was joined by three generations of her family for Thanksgiving holiday in Delaware, while many Americans isolated in their homes and communicated with family via Zoom calls.
Birx defended her hypocrisy by saying she needed to "take care of winterizing the property before a potential sale." She added: "I didn't go to Delaware for the purpose of celebrating Thanksgiving."
As a result of the ongoing backlash, Dr. Birx announced her plans to retire, calling the public backlash “overwhelming," per the NY Post.
Lawmakers such as California Gov. Gavin Newsom and NY Gov. Andrew Cuomo have been caught repeatedly violating their own Covid-19 edicts.
Newsom dined out with 2 dozen friends at a Napa Valley restaurant while ordering all restaurants closed during the outbreak. No one at the dinner wore masks.
Gov. Cuomo and his brother, CNN anchor Chris Cuomo have been spotted out and about without masks on in NYC -- even as they criticize others for doing the same.
Their lax attitudes have led to speculation that health officials and lawmakers know the coronavirus is not as deadly or contagious as they claim.
Here's a thread of hypocrites breaking their own COVID rules.
