You could probably start an entire news blog based solely around stories in which Democrats push for policies and laws that they themselves do not bother abiding by. This may be low-hanging fruit when it comes to our Democratic Party elites, but damn, it’s still fun to pick. Take it from Fox News’s Tucker Carlson, who blasted Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) on Monday night for her COVID hypocrisy.
Only a few short months after Feinstein wrote a letter to the Federal Aviation Administration demanding a national mask mandate for all employees and passengers who walk through an airport, the Judiciary Committee Democrat was caught – you guessed it – walking through an airport without a mask.
In June, Feinstein wrote an impassioned letter to the FAA.
“I write to urge you to implement a mandatory mask policy for all airport and airline employees and passengers as cases of coronavirus continue to surge,” Feinstein wrote at the time. “I ask that you issue guidance as soon as possible so passengers can have a clear understanding of the requirements and so that we may reduce exposure for workers and travelers alike.
“The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommend a comprehensive strategy to protect oneself from exposure to coronavirus while traveling on public transit, including the use of a mask, since social distancing is oftentimes not manageable on a crowded bus, train, or plane,” she continued. “As the research regarding mask effectiveness continues to evolve, the World Health Organization (WHO) updated its guidance on June 5th to specifically cite public transportation as an important part of these guidelines. Organizations, such as the Airports Council International, have said publicly that they would welcome such rules.”
Having explained the lay of the land, Feinstein told the FAA to get with the program: “While some transit agencies and airlines have implemented mandatory mask guidance for the public, reports indicate that the patchwork of rules have only sowed confusion among passengers. Therefore, I ask that you issue clear, nationwide, mandatory mask requirements for all aviation employees and travelers.”
After setting it all up on his show Monday, Carlson brought the hammer down, showing viewers photographs of “Dianne Feinstein in a private terminal at Dulles airport, an FBO as they say in private aviation, on Friday.”
Carlson went on: “In the photographs, Feinstein can be seen smiling without a mask on.”
Well, you know, we’re sure that this private terminal “set her up,” just like that dirty salon owner in San Francisco “set up” Nancy Pelosi to violate coronavirus lockdown restrictions a few weeks ago. We have no doubt that Feinstein is completely blameless for her own carelessness, and we’re sure this isn’t hypocritical at all. It’s just the right-wing media machine, forcing Democrats to look like fools as usual. How shameful.
