Rhode Island Governor Gina Raimondo comes under fire after being photographed with friends at a wine event just days after asking residents to stay home.
The Democratic Governor of the East Coast was seen in photographs taken by another restaurant during a wine and arts event at Barnaby’s Public House in Providence over the weekend.
The governor’s non-essential outing came just days after asking the people of Rhode Island, “Please stay home except for essential activities and wear a mask whenever you are with people.” that you don’t live with. ”
The woman who took the photo, Erica Oliveras, claimed that Raimondo “only takes off her mask whenever she drinks her wine”, but the photo clearly shows the governor’s glass and mask both lowered.
Another photo shows Raimondo in a mask, but close to the person running the event, who is likely not a member of his family.
“Shame on you Gina,” one person told local media ABC6 in reference to the actions of the governor. “She shouldn’t even be at an event like this. You can drink wine at home. I am an experienced wine drinker Gina, do it at home.
To make matters worse, Governor Raimondo’s outing came just a day before Rhode Island Health Department Director Dr. Nicole Alexander-Scott tested positive for the coronavirus, prompting Raimondo to post. a statement saying she had tested negative for Covid but would be under self-quarantine.
A spokesperson for the governor said she certainly did not violate any of the Covid guidelines.
“The governor had dinner at a local restaurant with her husband and wore her mask whenever she did not eat / drink,” the representative said.
Oliveras says she actually intended to show that the governor supported local businesses, but ended up inadvertently showing that Raimondo was just another Democratic hypocrite.
Governor Raimondo now joins a growing list of Democrats caught violating their own lockdown orders, in a display of defiance of rules that are only selectively enforced against the plebs.
