Just another frustrating incidence of “For thee but not for me” elitist attitude.

Illinois’ Democrat Gov. JB Pritzker is once again making grave proclamations about shutting his state down due to the coronavirus. Still, despite the draconian measures to “save lives,” the governor was also seen partying in crowded Chicago streets last week celebrating Joe Biden’s purported 2020 election win.
Photos of the gov. partying with Chicagoans showed up on Twitter as people remarked on Pritzker’s parading joyously in the Windy City’s Boystown neighborhood:
Celebrants are wearing masks in the video, as is the governor. Still, there is nothing resembling social distancing, especially for a governor who had voluntarily sent himself into self-quarantine for a second time . . .
. . . Indeed, only four days before he was seen celebrating in the streets, Pritzker was heard warning that more harsh shutdowns were coming.
Yet, Pritzker thought it was fine to join hundreds of people on the streets of Chicago. Chicago columnist Mark Konkol slammed the governor, saying, “But there was Pritzker weaving through crowds of people to celebrate Biden’s victory when a social video message would have been a safer way to celebrate . . .
You can also see Senator Chuck Schumer running around without a mask on and no social distancing just days ago here . . .
You will see a maskless (he eventually did put a mask on) non-social distancing Schumer on the streets of New York politicking for the upcoming Georgia special election in January in a couple of months.
The same guy who was warning you we could not vote in-person in some cases, because of corona virus.
The same guy who mask-shames others.
