CNN anchor Brianna Keilar unleashed on several Democrat “leaders” who have apologized after “multiple occurrences of ‘Do as I say, not as I do.’” 
 
Her targets: San Francisco Mayor London Breed and California Governor Gavin Newsome, who both attended birthday parties; San Jose Mayor Sam Liccardo violated his own Thanksgiving orders, even inviting his elderly parents over; New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, who talked about meeting up with his family for Thanksgiving in the same interview he told Americans to celebrate alone (he later cancelled his Thanksgiving plans, after getting called out); a Los Angeles county supervisor voted to close outdoor dining but went out to eat right before restrictions took effect.

“The past few weeks brought into relief a pattern of leaders failing to lead by example, asking Americans to make sacrifices that they themselves are unwilling to make, and appearing sorry only when they’re caught. Trust is built slowly, but it evaporates faster than reservations at a fancy restaurant,” Keilar stated.
 
How do these leaders expect their guidelines to be taken seriously, when they themselves don’t follow them?  Keilar powerfully ended her segment by attacking the misconception of Republicans being the irresponsible party. “A lot of these leaders are looking across the aisle to blame Republicans who aren’t taking mask-wearing seriously,” she said.  “But maybe it’s time they also look in the mirror.” 
 
Maybe she shouldn’t tell them to look in the mirror. They might end up at a hair salon like Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi.
