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.
Or maybe because he just wanted to make sure that he wouldn’t have to sit near anybody on the plane ride to Mississippi, where he’s going to spend his Thanksgiving with his wife and daughter:

Read it and seethe:
Pass the potatoes, not COVID.
?️Stay home as much as you can, especially if you're sick.
?Host virtual gatherings instead of in-person dinners.
❌Avoid travel, if you can.
?Order your holiday meal from a local eatery.
?Shop online with a small business for #BlackFriday. pic.twitter.com/acQpWs2Ism

I’m a democrat. This is a terrible look. This is what’s wrong with those in power. All of them.
I wanted to travel to Ohio and take the kids to see my mother. The pull and push factors were VERY strong.
I chose not to.
Do as I say, not as I do is never good leadership

But it seems to be the only kind of leadership they know how to do.
Screw them all. https://t.co/swIT523KTF
