After Governor Newsom Tells Californians To Stay Home, Photos Show Adviser Throwing A Party – Without Masks

With coronavirus cases on the rise, some state governors are rolling back their reopening plans. A few are re-instituting lockdown orders and stricter social distancing guidelines.

This includes California, where Gov. Gavin Newsom recently told residents to stay home and to take extra precautions. He has also asked for travel and gathering restrictions for the holidays.

But that apparently doesn’t apply to everyone.

Just recently, around the time the governor made these rules and recommendations, one of Newsom’s advisers had a birthday party at a fancy French restaurant.

Not only was this a public gathering, but it seems clear from the captured pictures that nobody was wearing face masks and social distancing wasn’t being practiced.

Additionally, Gov. Newsom can be clearly seen sitting at one of the tables — also without a mask.

Fox’s Bill Melugin posted the controversial photos on Twitter:

Melugin clarifies that the party was held outdoors, but he also adds that the guests were so loud, “the sliding doors had to be closed.”

Included in the party were a lobbyist and adviser to Newsom, Jason Kinney, as well as CEO Dustin Corcoran and a top CMA lobbyist, Janus Norman.

The photos show them all seated together at the French Laundry restaurant, which prompted plenty of questions and backlash.

A CMA spokesperson, as well as a spokesman for Kinney, claimed “the dinner was in accordance with state and county guidelines.”

But Newsom did have to apologize for the event.

That’s probably because at the time, there were restrictions in place for limited seating in restaurants, and these pictures certainly seemed to push the boundaries of those restrictions.

For many who oppose the stricter lockdowns and orders, this is another “do as I say, not as I do” example.

This vocal group always point toward members of the political elite apparently doing as they wish, regardless of any edicts or regulations they’ve passed on the populace.

And this will undoubtedly remain an issue as long as the pandemic rages.

Key Takeaways:

  • Gov. Gavin Newsom and one of his medical aides attended a birthday party at a restaurant, despite stricter pandemic regulations.
  • The pictures show Newsom and others at a table, with no face masks. Social distancing is also questionable.
  • Though the party was technically outside, many critics view it as largely hypocritical on the part of the governor.
