With liberals, there are always, always, always one set of rules for them and one set of rules for everyone else. For example, take Denver Mayor Michael Hancock. Earlier this month, he said the following,
“Speaking of the holidays, Thanksgiving is now less than a week away, and I told you all the last time we got together about the gathering of 50 family members and close friends at the Hancock household and how it’s going to look different this year. We’re going to be doing a Zoom, so we can at least see each other on Thanksgiving. So please, I urge everyone, maybe get a small turkey this year and celebrate with just those you live with. And after the meal, what we’re going to do, Zoom with your extended family, all your friends, everyone that you meet, and tell them that you look forward to seeing them real soon, and that maybe next year, maybe next year we can all be together again.”
He also tweeted this,
Stay home. Host a “virtual” gathering. Avoid travel. Those are the rules for the little people, like us. However, there are different rules for “important” people. You know, like Michael Hancock.
It must be so nice to demand that other people follow rules that you have absolutely no intention of following yourself. Fly on that jet to get to the global warming conference. Demand that everyone have their guns taken away while your armed security protects you. Tell everyone they better stay home while you jump on a plane. The American people deserve better than politicians like this.
