Governor Newsom, who has asked California residents to wear face masks “in between bites” at restaurants, was recently seen ignoring his own restrictions.
California Governor Gavin Newsom is being criticized after photos emerged that show him dining indoors, apparently ignoring his own health guidelines.
FOX 11 News in Los Angeles recently reported that it obtained photos of Newsom “allegedly eating at the French Laundry restaurant” on November 6. French Laundry in Napa Valley has been repeatedly ranked the best restaurant in the world, the Daily Caller reported.
Newsom has claimed that the restaurant was outdoors, but FoxLA reported that the room’s glass sliding doors had been closed. The woman who took the photos said that the doors were closed because the governor’s party was too loud.
UPDATE: As a result of these photos we obtained, two of the people at the Napa dinner with Governor Newsom have been identified as the CEO and a top lobbyist of the powerful CA Medical Association.

Since then, Governor Newsom has apologized for his actions. He said that he was uncomfortable with the dinner after realizing that the group was larger than he had expected. Although, the woman who took the photos said the governor did not appear to be uncomfortable.
In the past, Newsom has asked California residents to wear face masks “in between bites” at restaurants. He also announced Monday that the state will be mandating the most restrictive round of COVID restrictions for more than two dozen counties.
Hypocrite Democrat leaders like Governor Gavin Newsom are just one of the reasons people are fleeing California. Amid the coronavirus pandemic, Democrats have trampled on the freedoms of Americans. During ongoing riots and protests, they have also failed to protect their own communities.
It’s our job to hold hypocrites like Governor Newsom accountable and to elect conservative leaders who will do what is right for all Americans.
