It appears that California Gov. Gavin Newsom is an even bigger hypocrite than initially suspected

Late last week the San Francisco Chronicle confirmed that the governor and his wife had attended a crowded “outdoor” birthday party for one of his political advisers on Nov. 6th.

The bombshell report drew backlash because Newsom has spent months imposing rigid coronavirus lockdown rules on his constituents and lecturing them about the need to limit gatherings.

“State guidelines limit gatherings, defined as ‘social situations that bring together people from different households at the same time in a single space or place,’ to no more than three households,” the Chronicle reported.

“Representatives for [the political adviser] and Newsom declined to specify how many households the diners represented, but did not dispute that it was more than three.”

Following the report, the governor issued an apology for his “bad mistake” and proclaimed that “we all fall short sometimes.”

However, newly uncovered evidence has confirmed that he didn’t just “fall short” — he tumbled head-first down a precariously steep hill, as usual.

The evidence includes photos of Newsom and his wife seated unmasked next to equally unmasked people from multiple families inside some “closed-off room” that was technically “outside” the restaurant and yet …

Look via Los Angeles station KTTV:

In a statement to KTTV, the woman who snapped the photos described what she’d seen.

“I just happened to look over and realize, ‘Hey, is that Gavin Newsom? Who is that?” And I did ask one of the waitresses, and she confirmed it was, so I was able to take a couple of photos,” she said.

I was able to document this especially since nobody was wearing a mask. It was a very large group of people shoulder to shoulder, something that he’s always telling us not to do, so yeah, it was a bit annoying for sure.”

The woman also remarked on the governor’s apology.

Listen:

“I was surprised, because it didn’t look like he was uncomfortable being there until the very end until people were looking at him and staring at him as he was leaving the room,” she said.

In other words,  he looked perfectly fine and comfortable up until the moment he realized that his hypocrisy had been spotted.

These photos were published early Wednesday morning, less than 48 hours after Newsom instituted yet another round of draconian coronavirus lockdown restrictions — the strictest in the country, in fact.

The dichotomy between the governor’s strict “rules for thee” and loose “rules for me” provoked a whirlwind of social media backlash.

Look:

The latter Twitter user was correct.

“Gov. Gavin Newsom said Friday his children have returned to in-person learning under a ‘phased-in approach’ as many schools across the state remain shuttered due to Covid-19 — including nearly all public schools in Sacramento County where the governor lives,” Politico reported in late October.

“Newsom’s children attend a private school in Sacramento County that has a hybrid schedule that alternates remote and in-person education before it will return full-time next month.”

Democrats tend to be very anti-school choice, except of course when school choice benefits them personally.

Like a slew of other Democrats — including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, and Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot — it seems like Newsom exists in another plane of existence.

In his cozy world, he’s allowed to partake in all the frills and thrills of his heart’s desire. As for everybody else, he demands that they — the peasants — bend the knee and sacrifice anything and everything, including their children’s education.
