They no it is all BS and just a sick power freak exercise.
In California alone, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was caught on tape inside a salon without a mask getting her hair done. She claimed she was shocked, shocked, to learn that the salon was closed for indoor service by order of San Francisco Mayor London Breed. The mayor then opened service for indoor salon service.
The same Breed, as mentioned above, rushed to open gyms once it was revealed that government gyms in the foggy city had never closed and that judges and paralegals were actively using them while ordinary private sector citizens were banned from gyms.
And now we have the senior US Senator from California, Diane Feinstein, caught at an airport not wearing a mask. Yes, the same Feinstein who demanded in a letter that Washington DC's Dulles International Airport officials make clear to all that masks must be worn at all times.
