As we’ve already told you, California Gov. Gavin Newsom had to hit the “spin” button after being photographed at a birthday party that was clearly in violation of his own orders and guidelines for everybody else in the state.
Newsom laughably turned his own hypocrisy into “we all do it sometimes” situation:

“We all fall short.” Does that include the people Newsom was at the party with?

These are the people telling everybody to cancel Thanksgiving! How special.
Just say you're having dinner with a bunch of lobbyists for Thanksgiving and all will be well. https://t.co/2DmVHkq3Xh

The CA governor and officials from the CA Medical Association all dined indoors while telling the rest of the state they'd kill grandma if they did the same.
These people aren't scared of getting COVID. That should tell you something. https://t.co/F2tdctbXfN

If they didn't have double standards, they wouldn't have standards at all.
