Newsom apologized when news of the dinner came to light. “I made a bad mistake,” Newsom said 10 days after the dinner. “I should have stood up and … drove back to my house. The spirit of what I’m preaching all the time was contradicted. I need to preach and practice, not just preach.”
The problem, of course, is that Breed herself didn’t appear to be making those “very hard decisions” in her own life. Which, well, hypocrisy alert!
Newsom and Breed aren’t the only California Democrats who seem to be in “do as I say, not as I do” mode when it comes to the coronavirus.
Taken together, the bevy of Democratic politicians willing to bend or even break the rules they are asking their constituents to heed in hopes of mitigating the spread of Covid-19 is an avalanche of hypocrisy. And it is a very bad look.
