“Do As I Say, Not As I Do” – Another Democrat Governor Gets Busted Breaking Own Orders
We’re getting pretty sick and tired of being told to do one thing to help “stop the spread” while those who actually issue the orders aren’t abiding by their own rules.
We honestly need a streamlined process to punish these imbeciles who do this sort of crap because we’re fed up with it.
It’s bad enough that they try imposing these harsh and tyrannical rules that don’t do anything to help, but when they are above the law, it really is infuriating. If these orders were helping in the first place we wouldn’t be having our highest numbers to date.
The newest addition to the list of governors who don’t follow their own restrictions is Rhode Island Governor Gina Raimondo.
Gov. Raimondo was caught at a wine bar (and essential business might I add) enjoying herself without a mask out in public.

“Erica Oliveras, who took the photo, says she and Governor Raimondo were both at Barnaby’s Public House in Providence on Friday night for a wine and paint night,” ABC-6 reported.
Oliveras defended the governor, saying Raimondo “only took her mask off whenever she was drinking her wine.”
But others were not so happy.
“Shame on you, Gina,” Providence resident Susan Goodman told ABC-6. “She shouldn’t even be at an event like that. You can drink wine at home. I’m an experienced wine drinker, Gina, do it at home.”
A spokesperson for the governor’s office told the station that Raimondo didn’t do anything wrong. “The governor had dinner at a local restaurant with her husband, and had her mask on anytime she was not eating/drinking,” Josh Block said.
One day after Raimondo hit the wine bar, Rhode Island Department of Health Director Dr. Nicole Alexander-Scott tested positive for COVID-19. That prompted Raimondo to self-quarantine because she had shared the stage with Alexander-Scott Thursday night at a briefing, NBC 10 News reported.
