Despicable! Dem Gov Admits Wife Fled To Open Red State To Escape Stay At Home Order
Billionaire Illinois Gov. J.B Pritzker has finally admitted that his wife fled to two red states to escape his draconian stay at home order.
After continued pressure from the local press, Pritzker admitted his wife fled to their $12.1 million South Florida equestrian estate and then traveled to their farm in Wisconsin conveniently after a judge struck down the state’s stay at home order.
“My wife and daughter were down in Florida in early March and, in fact even a little before that, and you know, they sheltered in place when the stay-at-home order came up,” he said.
“And they stayed there until very recently, so you know we’ll say, you know, we have a working farm. They’re there now. There are animals on that farm. That is an essential function to take care of animals at a farm,” he added, as nonessential travel remains “discouraged” in Illinois:

Last month Pritzker said, “we are in this together,” as he extended the state draconian lockdown order. He then faced backlash when the press discovered the first lady of Illinois may have fled to another state, initially he refused to answer any questions claiming it was “inappropriate” and “reprehensible” that he would be questioned.
“Where’s the first lady? Is she accompanied by a state security detail? Has she engaged in nonessential travel? What is your response to people who say the state home order and nonessential travel bans aren’t being abided by your family?” a reporter asked during an April presser.
“Well, first of all, I want to say that in politics, it used to be that we kept our families out of it,” Pritzker said, attempting to separate his family from his “official duties.”
“You know, my official duties have nothing to do with my family, so I’m just not going to answer that question. It’s inappropriate, and I find it reprehensible, honestly, that that reporter wrote a story about it.”
Not if “we are all in it together” governor.
While Pritzker’s wife was enjoying the sun and freedom the people of Illinois were stuck at home and unemployed.
