After warnings to avoid travel, Denver Mayor Hancock flies to visit family for Thanksgiving

Denver Mayor Michael has told people to avoid travel in order to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus, which is at record levels in the city.

DENVER — Denver Mayor Michael Hancock boarded a flight to Houston ahead of Thanksgiving despite his warnings that people should stay close to home and only spend the holiday with their own household if they can. 

His spokeswoman confirmed that Hancock was traveling to Houston Wednesday to visit his daughter in Mississippi, and that his wife is already there. 

About 30 minutes before the flight, Hancock's account tweeted out to “avoid travel, if you can” in order to slow the spread of COVID-19.

Pass the potatoes, not COVID.

???Stay home as much as you can, especially if you’re sick.

??Host virtual gatherings instead of in-person dinners.

?Avoid travel, if you can.

??Order your holiday meal from a local eatery.

"As he has shared, the Mayor is not hosting his traditional large family dinner this year, but instead traveling alone to join his wife and daughter where the three of them will celebrate Thanksgiving at her residence instead of having them travel back to Denver," a statement from the mayor’s spokesperson reads. “Upon return, he will follow all necessary health and safety guidance and quarantine.” 

According to an email obtained by 9NEWS, Hancock’s assistant said the mayor would be out of office from Wednesday to Friday.

In an email to city staff on Nov. 18, Hancock wrote, “as the holidays approach, we all long to be with our families with person, but with the continued rise in cases, I’m urging you to refrain from travel this Thanksgiving holiday. For my family that means cancelling our traditional gathering of our extended family.”

In the email, Hancock also said anyone who travels out of state should quarantine for 14 days and that employees who can’t work from home will need to use their paid time off for the leave.

Denver City Council President Stacie Gilmore issued a statement Wednesday encouraging residents to stay home for the holidays. 

“Mayor Michael Hancock made the personal decision to travel for Thanksgiving,” Gilmore’s statement reads. “I expect the mayor will follow and comply with the directives he issued to all City of Denver employees and quarantine for 14 days upon his return.” 

According to the Denver Public Health COVID-19 monitoring dashboard, the seven-day moving average of new cases in the county is 688. 

As of Wednesday, there have been 33,971 total cases of the novel coronavirus in Denver and 494 deaths.

Gov. Jared Polis (D-Colorado) said Tuesday that one in 41 Coloradans is currently infectious with COVID-19, the highest level since the pandemic began.

During a news conference on Wednesday, Polis said he was not aware Hancock intended to travel for Thanksgiving. The two leaders had both attended news conferences imploring people to practice social distancing. 

“I have not had any conversations with the mayor about his Thanksgiving plans and was not aware of them," Polis said.

Polis said he will spend Thanksgiving with just his partner and their kids, and that he hasn’t seen his parents in months.

“Not only do I want to set the example as governor, of course, but frankly this is what we do because we love our family," Polis said. "My parents are 76, I want them to be here for 20 more years.”

Thanks Kona you beat me

Trump said COVID would "wash away" by Easter, held rallies, downplayed the virus being serious, and refused to wear a mask while encouraging everyone else to open up the economy.

He got infected and ended up hospitalized on taxpayer dime.

NO governor told people not to leave the house unless it was an emergency,  but goes out to eat with his family in a public resturaunt.

Mr Murphy recently appeared on "Good Morning America" to urge residents to limit their Thanksgiving gatherings to fewer than 10 people and to only visit their immediate family. He has imposed a lockdown of Newark beginning 25 November, asking residents not to leave their homes unless its an emergency.

"There's a huge amount of personal responsibility here, everybody has to do the right thing. We've got a vortex here; cold weather, people letting their hair down with fatigue and holiday after holiday," he said. "We're pleading with people — please God, do the right thing."

He was forced to wear a mask because he got infected due to not wearing one.

Same guy who was pushing hydroxychloroquine treatment for the masses, yet didn't receive any when he actually got sick.

Wearing a mask is important. For you and those around you. For elected officials? Not so much.

Actually, all the COVID rules are for us, not them. COVID-19, and the accompanying lockdowns, have made it painfully clear: We plebes have to follow the rules; the elites do not.

Start with California Gov. Gavin Newsom, who last week groveled for forgiveness after being caught attending a large birthday dinner at The French Laundry restaurant in Napa Valley. When pictures from the event surfaced, the hypocrisy was glaring: The governor was seen with his wife at a large table full of maskless lobbyists, all sitting in close proximity.

But, hey: You’re not the governor — so if you want to celebrate Thanksgiving in his state, remember: “No more than three households, including your own,” at the gathering, and keep your distance.

Newsom isn’t the only one to live it up while everyone suffers. Gov. Cuomo, for example, is rarely seen in a mask, yet his Twitter feed never stops harassing you to “mask up.” (And, by the way, he’s just thrilled with himself over his handling of the COVID-19 crisis, even though it resulted in more deaths than any other state and, according to The New York Times, seeded the virus throughout the country.)

The gov’s daughter recently posted a picture of her dad, two of his daughters, one of “the boyfriends” and Cuomo’s secretary all hanging out with no social distancing or masks. Were all of them part of the same household? Doubtful.

Yet you, of course, have to avoid friends and family — you know, just in case.

One of Cuomo’s most famous constituents similarly seems to think rules are for the little people. He actually broke quarantine after testing positive for the virus.

    The constituent’s wife posted pictures of herself working out indoors, maskless, with a personal trainer, while gyms in the state remained closed. And he was recently photographed getting a haircut, maskless, which would result in a $1,000 fine for the rest of us.

    I’m referring, of course, to Gov. Cuomo’s brother, CNN host Chris Cuomo, who gets a pass on all of his bad behavior because of his last name (and left-wing politics).

    Politicians and their families are just not like the rest of us. Newsom sent his kids back to hybrid, in-person private school in Sacramento County while public schools there remain closed.

    Speaker Nancy Pelosi famously got a haircut at a salon in California, though salons were supposed to be closed there at the time.

    Sen. Dianne Feinstein, who has called for nationwide mask mandates, was seen walking maskless through an airport in September and again in the hallway of the Capitol last week.

    DC Mayor Muriel Bowser traveled to Delaware for a Biden victory party, but didn’t follow her own quarantine protocols upon return. Celebrations, you see, are “essential” for your betters; they’re too important to follow the rules they set for others.

    Last week, Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot announced new lockdowns. “You must cancel the normal Thanksgiving plans,” she said. The previous week, Lightfoot was whooping it up in the street, maskless and shouting through a bullhorn (and perhaps blowtorching her spittle at the crowd) during a Biden victory party.

    Sen. Chuck Schumer also partied for Biden maskless. Apparently all these Democratic politicians seem to think if you’re partying for a good cause, masks are unnecessary. My 4-year-old had to wear a mask, outdoors, at recess during those very few days he got to go to actual school. Then again, as Creedence Clearwater Revival put it, he “ain’t no senator’s son.” (Other “good causes,” like Black Lives Matter rallies, also seem to negate the need to follow the rules.)

    “Don’t listen to politicians, listen to scientists,” say their defenders! Yet that’s not really how it works. Scientists give their perspective, and politicians enact rules based on that. But if they tell us to be concerned, to take precautions, to change everything about the way we live and to do so indefinitely — and then don’t do it themselves — what are we supposed to think?

    The message that comes through loud and clear: Wink, wink — COVID’s not really that big a deal.

    These hypocrites have to know their behavior undermines their credibility and helps spread the virus they say they want to fight. The only possible conclusion is that they just don’t care.

    EIGHT California lawmakers are facing a furious backlash after flying to Hawaii for a conference despite health officials warning against out-of-state travel amid a spike in coronavirus cases.

    Critics have blasted the decision by the politicians – who include at least seven California assembly members and one state senator – to fly to the luxury beachfront Fairmont Kea Lani Hotel resort in Maui for the meeting.

    The four-day conference comes amid a sharp rise in coronavirus cases across the US, and kicked off the same day that 94 per cent of California’s population were put under the state's most restrictive purple Covid-19 tier.

    “This is ‘do as I say, not as I do’,” Jon Coupal, president of the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Assn, told the LA Times.

    “This is one of the reasons there is a complete disconnect between ordinary citizens in California and the political leadership.”

    Jamie Court, president of Consumer Watchdog, also gave the conference short shrift, calling it an “abuse of office”. 

    “In normal times it is an abuse of office to have oil, utility and other big companies that lobby in the Capitol paying for an Hawaiian getaway replete with golf, hula show and mai tais,” Mr Court told the LA Times.

    The eight politicians accused of hypocrisy for attending the conference at the $500-a-night Wailea resort include assembly members Frank Bigelow; Wendy Carrillo; Jordan Cunningham; Heath Flora; and Chad Mayes.

    Assembly members Jose Medina and Blanca Rubio, as well as State Senator Andreas Borgeas, have also been identified as among the 75 attendees at the conference – hosted by the Independent Voter Project (IVP).

    “In Covid times, it is an abomination that legislators would break quarantine to play in the sun at a resort,” added Consumer Watchdog president Mr Court.

    “You can have a discussion about opening safely on Zoom if you don't care about the golf, the beach and the [cocktails].

    “This has and will always be a world- junket. This year it's also a lethal one that shows disrespect for the quarantine and those hunkering down to do the right thing.”

    Of all the examples listed so far, Trump (my entry) is clearly the worst offendor.

    Florida Man has been very content with the months of happy hours and mask-free dining. 

    China fooled the world in a economic trade war attack and the rest of the world bumbling soulless politicians are somehow still ruining lives because of the FLU. 

    it can't just be that they are retarded but I've no idea why they are still pushing the Rona Lie.

    Austin Mayor Steve Adler recorded a video of himself urging the public to “stay home if you can” while he vacationed in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. 

    "Stay home if you can ... this is not the time to relax,” Adler said in the clip posted to Facebook. 

    Adler did not disclose he was at a timeshare after flying on a private jet with eight guests, including immediate and extended family. 

    The Mexico trip was one day after Adler hosted a wedding with 20 guests for his daughter at a boutique hotel in Austin.

     At the time, Austin was under a Stage 3 advisory, recommending no more than 10 people gather. Adler said he’d consulted with Dr. Mark Escott, Austin’s top health authority, and held the wedding outdoors. He said that guests had to get a COVID-19 test prior to attending. 

    Several wedding attendees flew to Austin from across the U.S., including the Seattle-based photographer, according to KVUE. 

    "It's not perfect,” Adler said this week. “Obviously there are infections that could happen. But what we did was stay compliant with the rules." 

    The following day, eight of the wedding attendees flew to Cabo.

    Though the positivity rate was below 4 percent when Adler left for his trip, the week after he returned the city raised its threat level to Stage 4, recommending against travel and gathering with people outside of your household.

    One day after Adler embarked on his vacation, Dr. Esper issued a warning: “If you are going to go out to a restaurant, go out with your family, the people who live in your household, not the family or friends who don’t live in your household. And start to decrease those travels outside of your home that are not necessary.”

    Adler said in a statement of his trip: “We were in a lower risk ‘Yellow’ level than now. It is always safest to stay home. However, we aren’t asking people never to venture out. We ask everyone to be as safe as possible in what they do. My family and I are no exception and we’ll continue to do as I ask of our community.”

    Last week Texas Judge Bill Gravell paid a $1,000 fine for violating his own coronavirus stay-at-home order to attend his grandson’s birthday party in April.
