Rules for thee but not for me: Mayor Lightfoot defends getting haircut under social distancing order

I’m way overdue for a color appointment at the salon. And I won’t be getting one until sometime in May as our mayor has continued our lockdown through the end of April. I’ll survive though. After all, our combined sacrifices are for the good of the public health. Remember, #WereAllInThisTogether.

Also, I’m not “out in the public eye” so I guess it really doesn’t matter if I’m inconvenienced.

Chiraq Mayor Lori Lightfoot: My haircuts will go on

WGN reports that the good mayor of Chiraq, Lori Lightfoot, defended herself while she disobeyed the “social distancing” orders by getting a haircut. From their report:

“Photos surfaced over the weekend showing the mayor after she got a haircut amid the state’s stay-at-home orders. A woman posted photos on Facebook Sunday saying she “had the pleasure of giving Mayor [Lori] Lightfoot a hair trim.”

In the photos, the mayor is standing next to the woman and they are not standing six feet apart — plus, neither one was wearing a mask.

“Thank you for all the hard work & dedication put forth to help our city,” the post said.

Beauty and hair salons are among the many businesses closed to the public amid the statewide orders.

The mayor was asked about the trim during a press conference Monday. “I’m in the public everyday and candidly, my hair was not looking the way it did,” she said. “I thought I would do it myself but I thought it would be a disaster. So I got a haircut,” she said.

When asked if she was sending mixed messages to Chicagoans, she said she practices what she preaches, but said because she is a public figure, she got the haircut.

“I’m the public face of this city,” she said. “I’m on national media and I’m out in the public eye. I’m a person who takes their personal hygiene very seriously.”

Apparently her stylist wore gloves and a mask so that makes it A-OK for HER. But not for her peons.

Ah, Democrats. We can always count on them to be the “Do as I say, not as I do” hypocrites that they are.

Good catch, DCG!

Not just demoncrats, some state senator from Pennsylvania (R) Joe Scarnati got caught as did dumbo rat Wolf as a politician that didn’t put their business on the close down list, until they got caught, then they did- Scarnati had some sort of “candy”? factory, Wolf has a furniture making company.

This is typical Demorat behavior. Make a rule that everyone else has to obey except those who make the rule. The words democrat and hypocrite are synonymous.

The stylist must have had scissor hands or used a long pole to cut her hair and stay 666 inches away.

The Demonrats have been pushing the public to panic since this all started. Remember, the word “pandemic” is just panic with a “dem” in the middle.😎 PanDEMic.

Well, first of all, the haircut didn’t improve anything anyway.
Secondly, this just chaps my hide. The other day out of the blue, my Hubble turned to me and said, “How good do you think you’d be at cutting my hair?” Instant panic! He’s looking a little like Woody Woodpecker on top….tho’ the sides are not so bad. But, it’s clear I’ll have to give it a whirl or he can start a man bun. This, while the Dumbocrats have all the fun.

My step daughter had to close her high end salon. Won’t be making any money until at least June 10. I’m calling BS.
