Denver Mayor Michael Hancock recently urged those in his fair city to avoid traveling to enjoy Thanksgiving with their loved ones. Because he truly cares about Denverites’ wellbeing.

He couldn’t even wait a whole day — a whole hour! — to be a flaming hypocrite.

But it seems to be the only kind of leadership they know how to do.
