(AbsoluteNews.com) – Democratic leaders around the country have been imposing strict lockdowns on American cities and states. Meanwhile, many of the people who tell others what to do aren’t even following their own advice. And this week, another left-wing official was caught sipping her own hypocrisy.
Rhode Island Governor Under Fire
On December 11, someone photographed Gov. Gina Raimondo (D) at a Providence business without her mask. The Democrat was attending a wine and paint night at the establishment and it looked like she was having a great time.

The problem? It came just days after she urged residents of the state to stay home unless their outing was necessary and to wear a mask.
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.

People were rightfully outraged that the Democrat was trying to impose restrictions on them while she went about living her life. And although she didn’t break any rules, it’s the hypocrisy that burned them.
But that’s what Liberals have been doing for months.
Let’s set aside that Democratic leaders had no problems with people gathering in large groups when their voters were. They ignored it for months as BLM protesters took to the streets. Just the hypocrisy shown by their leaders is enough.
Let’s just take a look at some of their most shining moments:
- In Austin, Texas, the Democratic mayor told his city’s residents to stay home. Then he flew to Mexico for a lavish vacation.
- A maskless Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi was caught in a shuttered San Francisco salon getting her hair done.
- California Governor Gavin Newsom traveled to Napa Valley to attend an indoor event.
- Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer’s husband tried (and failed) to get his boat put into the water so he could have a grand time at the same time she was urging people to stay home.
Democrats often act as though the rules don’t apply to them, so why should anyone listen to what they have to say about public safety? They’ve lost all credibility.
You Deserve the Absolute Truth!
