Whining And Dining: Dem Gov Orders People To Stay Home, Then Gets Caught Maskless At A Bar
The Governor of Rhode Island who has imposed and continues to impose some of the strictest COVID restrictions in the country was recently caught not wearing a mask at a wine bar.
Erica Oliveras took a picture of Democrat Governor Gina Raimondo sitting at a table in Barnaby’s Public House in Providence without a mask.
Four days before being caught at a wine bar Raimondo told Rhode Islanders to stay home.
“It’s week two of our pause. I know it’s been hard, but I want to thank every Rhode Islander who’s following our guidance. Please, stay home except for essential activities & wear a mask anytime you’re with people you don’t live with. Together, we can turn our case numbers around,” she wrote.

Rhode Island has seen some of the highest infection rates in the country this fall. According to the state’s shutdown order indoor dining is allowed up to 33% of the restaurant’s seating capacity. However, indoor entertainment facilities like movie theaters, bowling centers, and arcades must remain closed through December 20th.
Democrat Governors just can’t seem to follow the “science” behind their own orders but some are starting to face a reckoning.
A San Diego Superior Court Judge ruled that restaurants in the San Diego area can open. The ruling showed that the county provided no evidence to show that restaurants were a source of infection.
“Given every opportunity, the County has provided the Court with no evidence that San Diego County businesses with restaurant service, such as Plaintiffs’ establishments, who’ve implemented protocols as directed by the County, present any risk — much less a greater risk than before Governor Newsom issued his December 3, 2020, Regional Stay at Home Order — to the spread of COVID,” he wrote.
“These business establishments provide sustenance to and enliven the spirits of the community, while providing employers and employees with means to put food on the table and secure shelter, clothing, medical care, education and, of course, peace of mind for they and their families,” he wrote.
On December 8th, a Los Angeles judged ruled that the ban on outdoor dining is an abuse of power that isn’t “grounded in science, evidence, or logic.”
Democrat governors claim they are using science however when asked to provide the evidence behind their restrictions they come up empty.
