Democratic Governor Caught Breaking Shutdown Orders in Video

(NewsReady.com) – California Governor Gavin Newsom (D) has attracted plenty of hostility over the last year for his strict, and often arbitrary, COVID-19 restrictions. Now, there’s more flak coming this way, after he posted a TikTok video showing that he can’t even follow his own rules.

On February 27, the video posted shows actor George Lopez – a vocal Democrat who endorsed Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) in the 2016 presidential race – sitting in a Fresno, CA restaurant he endorses. Lopez asks how he can find out if he can get a COVID jab, and then Newsom appears and recommends a state website.

Newsom was immediately blasted on social media for being in a restaurant in a county where restaurants are closed – on his own orders. A spokesman protested that the governor didn’t actually eat there, but many people were outraged by his hypocrisy and added to the calls for the controversial governor to be recalled.
