A recent episode of Fox’s popular series, The Five, discusses how Democrats consistently ignore their own rules regarding COVID-19 lockdowns, restrictions, and mandates. This happens while ordinary people, including a New York City bar owner, are arrested for defying the rules.
How are Democrats “acting up?”
San Francisco mayor, London Breed, attended a dinner party at an upscale restaurant, French Laundry, only a day after California governor, Gavin Newsom attended a dinner party at the same restaurant. Mere days later, Breed issued an order that banned all indoor dining in San Francisco.
But wait, there’s more.
The mayor of Austin, Texas released a video urging all residents to stay home. He released this video while he was vacationing in Mexico. Later in the video, it was revealed that the mayor’s video was made two days after his daughter’s wedding and while he was vacationing with eight other people in Mexico.
Even Juan Williams, a staunch supporter of all things Democrat expressed disdain for the hypocrisy of these so-called leaders for openly disregarding the very rules they’re creating. Williams goes on to say that these bad examples set by politicians are particularly egregious because people follow their examples. Williams does return to form by stating that he believes the policies are correct and that people shouldn’t lose sight of the importance of following them, even if their elected “leaders” do not.
Jesse Waters discusses how he is appalled by the fact that in Staten Island you can loot a business but you cannot open or operate a business. Waters then goes on to discuss how the politicians are shutting down small businesses and then not sending stimulus checks, which is destroying the small businesses that have not yet shut their doors permanently.
Greg Gutfeld contributes that it’s easy to criticize when they have jobs and don’t have to worry about feeding their family, paying for medical insurance, etc. but what about the owners of these small businesses, the waitstaff, and bartenders? These are people who don’t have the luxury of paychecks coming in due to orders established by Democratic leaders and policies even though they aren’t abiding by their own directives.
He even went on to discuss how politicians bailed out looters who were arrested but aren’t bailing out people like the bar owner who was arrested for opening his business.
From there the group devolves into an argument about the money that has been unspent from the first stimulus package that could be reallocated to help these desperate small business owners who are watching their livelihoods, their dreams, and their futures go up in smoke because they aren’t allowed to open while Democrats openly flout their own decrees.
