Steve Adler, the mayor of Austin, Texas, recently got busted by local media for advising residents in the city to stay at home. Oh, and he was in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico at the time:

Who’s “confused”? It’s hypocrisy writ large — nothing to be “confused” about there at all!
He does not regret going, he regrets getting caught. But he said he was sorry so everything is better.

Austin Mayor, Steve Adler, records a message from Cabo about staying home. Then gets caught and apologizes. So disingenuous and fake..stupid and arrogant.

If by confusing you mean hypocritical & credibility-weakening … then yes, it was confusing. https://t.co/nlxyurJJvC

He should make a reservation at the French Laundry in CA, while he’s at it.

Maybe he could have a bite to eat and talk it over with Gavin Newsom and London Breed.
