Democrat politicians are being criticized and called out for their hypocrisy over new COVID-19 requirements.
Washington, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser recently reinstated an indoor mask mandate but was caught at an event over the weekend not wearing a mask.
Fox News reports:
Bowser was spotted maskless indoors less than 24 hours after her order reinstating the district’s indoor mask mandate went into effect Saturday morning for everyone over 2 years old, regardless of vaccination status.
Bowser was confronted by the Washington Examiner about not wearing a mask.
When encountered by the Washington Examiner, Mayor Bowser confirmed that she officiated the maskless, indoor wedding, but when asked why she was violating her own mask mandate, her security retinue quickly escorted her away. https://t.co/hY0Ji2zqnj pic.twitter.com/xozhIupSin

Still processing the fact that @MayorBowser announces an indoor mask mandate Thursday, throws a large bday party with Dave Chappelle Friday, and officiates a maskless indoor wedding Saturday. You literally can’t make it up.

Authority hates being questioned.
Especially when it points out their hypocrisy
