On Wednesday morning, Denver Mayor Michael Hancock urged residents to stay home and meet family online for Thanksgiving to help curtail the spread of the coronavirus.
“Pass the potatoes, not COVID. … Host virtual gatherings instead of in-person dinners,” the Democrat tweeted. “Avoid travel, if you can.”
Then, less than an hour later, Hancock boarded a flight on his way to Mississippi for Thanksgiving with his wife and daughter, his spokesman Mike Strott confirmed to The Washington Post.
It is time for the citizens of Denver to recall this hypocritical politician. Too much has been taken from everyone during the COVID-19 pandemic and with the constant call from politicians across this country to alter our ways of life and then to see one of them go against his own advice is the last straw.
We are being pushed around like pawns in a game of chess and most are standing ideally by as our leadership controls our lives. It is time to stand up and get these people out of office and it starts with Michale Hancock.
