It’s ALWAYS Democrats

Yet another Democrat politician has been caught violating the same coronavirus restrictions and recommendations that she expects others to abide by.

Early last week, Rhode Island Gov. Gina Raimondo, a Democrat, posted a tweet requesting that her constituents “stay home except for essential activities & wear a mask anytime you’re with people you don’t live with.”


Yet four days later on Friday, Dec. 11th, Raimondo was spotted at Barnaby’s Public House — a bar located in downtown Providence — sipping wine while sitting among others unmasked and without proper social distancing.


Oh Look at this …..The Queen Bee is Out in Providence with a glass of wine close quarters no mask

The unsurprising hypocrisy from yet another Democrat who deems it necessary to constantly lecture her constituents about the coronavirus was a tad too much for some.

In response to the photo above going viral, backlash grew like a tsunami against Raimondo.


The woman who snapped the photo and then shared it online, local resident Erica Oliveras, told station WLNE that both she and the governor had been at Barnaby’s last Friday for a so-called “wine and paint night.”

She added that her intent hadn’t been to get Raimondo into trouble and tried to even defend the governor by claiming the photo has been taken out of context.

“She only took her mask off whenever she was drinking her wine. That’s the only time she took it off. When she came into the building she had her mask. Whenever the waiters approached her she had a mask on,” she said.

Yet masks are nowhere to be seen in the photo…

The governor’s top officials and spokesperson also tried to play defense.

“An activity like the painting night would be allowed as long as there are protocols in place to prevent sharing of tools between households,” Rhode Island Department of Commerce spokesperson Matt Sheaff said to WLNE.

“The governor had dinner at a local restaurant with her husband, and had her mask on anytime she was not eating/drinking,” her personal spokesperson added.

But again, in her Dec. 7th tweet, she explicitly told her constitutions to “stay home except for essential activities” …

This isn’t even the first time the Democrat governor has been caught violating her own rules, restrictions, and recommendations.

She was forced to apologize in June after she attended a George Floyd “protest” while unmasked and without proper social distancing.


“That was wrong. It was counter to our public health guidance, and I apologize,” she said in a statement at the time.

Months later, she has yet to apologize for again behaving like a typical Democrat hypocrite — one who clearly believes in the “science” only when it comes to controlling the lives of other people, not herself.

To stop the hypocrisy, Democrat governors like Raimondo can either get with the program and start abiding by the rules they set for others, or follow the lead of Republican Govs. like Ron DeSantis and Kristi Noem and STOP trying to control people’s lives in the first place …
