[Blind Gossip] You may remember that story we told you about a big shot politician who was oh-so-concerned about public health.
He sternly told his constituents to stay at home and avoid gatherings to stay healthy.
Then he went and threw a big party at his own house!
Well, that hypocrisy came back to bite him in the butt.
Because, as it turns out, he got sick about a week later.
Of course, he claims he doesn’t know how he got sick.
Whatever. We know how he got sick!
He is not the first politician to say one thing and do another.
While the city of San Francisco was locked down… everyone was required to wear masks… and ordinary citizens could not even get a hair cut… Speaker of The House Nancy Pelosi pretended that those rules did not apply to her.
She famously visited a local hair salon, got her hair done, and walked around maskless in the process.
Pelosi later tried to claim that she had been “set up” by the salon owner.
Pelosi’s hair may be fabulous… but her hypocrisy is not.
We’re going to tell you a story about another prominent politician who thinks that rules are for the little people.
A couple of months ago – while his state was in lock down and everybody was required to wear masks and parents wondered if their kids would ever go back to school – our tall politician had a party.
No, not at a restaurant. At his house.
No, not just with his family. With everybody.
It was a birthday party for one of his kids. Who was going to turn down a chance to party at the Governor’s house? Nobody! Practically all the kids in the neighborhood were invited and the parents came too. There were tons of people, the kids were all running around yelling, and pretty much nobody wore a mask.
Rules for thee… but not for me!

Governor and/or State:
[Optional] The most annoying politician in my state is __________ . Please use real names and keep your comments civil.
It’s not Newsom because he did not get Covid. He did attend a party, which he had to apologize for, but there has been no news here in Cali that he threw a big party and he definitely has not had Covid yet, although he’s apparently been exposed and is now quarantining.
As these comments show, hypocrisy knows no party. It’s a problem with some people. Not everything is political, there are idiots everywhere.
oh newsom, why do you even hide it! he had a dinner at french laundry, indoors, without masks etc. the most important part he was with the president of the california american medical assoc. and it’s lobbyist. hmmm dinner with a lobbyist and now were locked down again….follow the money.
Woops, Deblasio’s first name is Bill, not Joe!
NYC mayor Joe DeBlasio is 6’5″. He is also a raging hypocrite, so he is my guess for this blind.
It can’t be Newsom if he was the answer to the related blind, as it states here that this blind is about another politician.
Optnl: Tie between Elizabeth Warren or squad member Ayanna Pressley. Actually, nah, no tie, Ayanna wins, with 100% of the vote counted. No recounts or returns granted, sorry. 😭
Gavin Newsome of my home state, California. Not only can he go out to eat in restaurants, but he sends his children to a private school that actually meets in person! Sheer hypocrisy; “rules for thee, not for me” at its worst. I cannot wait to get him out of office!
I’m going to guess that the “tall” politician (specified governor) is wretched Gavin Newsom.
As for my state, I love our governor, Ron DeSantis! Common sense thinker, leaves as much in our hands to decide as possible, and has done a great job with our state.
Worse in our state: I would have to say Sen. Marco Rubio. He’s wishy washy; a flip flopper. It makes me wonder if he’s bought and paid for.
This one I think the kid’s birthday party is Newsom. He also was just pictured having dinner at the Michelin-rated French Laundry restaurant with a group of people, no masks.
The other governor, who threw a Halloween Party and went to the season opener of an NFL team, was Sisolak from Nevada, I think.
Most annoying politician in my state: Bill de Blasio of NYC. Gave his wife $$$ to launch her own city program. They can’t account for the money and have no proof it actually helped anyone.
High Steppa says
For the tall politician I’m guessing De Blasio who is supposed to be 6-5 or 6-6.
The first one was our wonderful guv, King Steve Sisolak. What’s funny is what he said in the conference where he addressed his COVID diagnosis: . “I think this just puts a spotlight on the fact that you can take all the precautions that are possible and you can still contract the virus.”
So there ya go. Do everything possible and still get it….so why are we about to be locked down??
Newsome – California
Gavin Newsom… no surprise that he and Pelosi are related.
Gavin Newsom, California
Optional: With out a doubt, Cuomo. He’s been dubbed with a hilarious nickname, but I’ll follow BG’s request to keep it “civil.”
Optional: Jeff Flake
Newsom. Good ol California
Gavin Newsom/ California
The most annoying politician in my state is hands down Jay Inslee. I am absolutely sick that he was re-elected. I really hoped Loren Culp would win. Ugh four more years with Inslee is not something I’m celebrating.
Gavin Newsom. Daughter Montana’s birthday in late September.
Optional: Ugh. It depends on the day. And hour. I switch constantly between Cuomo and Bill DeBlasio. These two are competing over who can oppress their citizens more
Massachusetts Gov Charlie Baker
Op- most annoying – Lindsay Graham and most fav Tim Scott.
Governor and/or State: * Gavin Newsom (Gov of CA)
Its a toss up; Mr. Newsom or London Breed (Mayor of San Francisco). Both are the worst and use their positions shamelessly.
Gavin Newsom. Also had a party at the French Laundry where he and his guests were so loud, they had to close the doors to the outside so they were totally contained. Related to Pelosi
There are so many Governors doing stupid things right now I have no idea. But in my state, California, it is a three-way tie between Governor Gavin Newsom, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and Los Angeles City Mayor Eric Garcetti for the most annoying politician in the State. All three have exhibited Rules for thee but not for me. They are a disgrace!
Gov of Nevada again! Sisolak!
The most annoying politician in my state is District Attorney John T. Adams of Berks County, PA. He’s a liar, a cheat and unbelievably corrupt. Evil, evil, disgusting man.
Governor Gavin Newsom threw the big birthday party! Worst politician in my state is 3 way tie with Nancy Pelosi, Gavin Newsom and Diane Feinstein. This is California ugh!
I’m going to guess this is the pompous Newsom!
He and his Auntie Pelosi are neck in neck with the most wretched individuals in CA!
The governor of Nebraska removed his mask at a gathering, was chatting with folks. The waitress who taped this scene and tweeted it got fired. Some politicians seem to forget the rules. The most annoying politician in my state is Ken Cuccinelli.
