The CDC issued a warning against traveling over Thanksgiving a week ahead of the holiday, and Democratic governors are taking their advice to the extreme. Their constituents’ reactions have been less than accepting.
Here are the most severe restrictions and the best reactions:
Do as I say, not as I do, Gov. JB Pritzker dodged questions if he would be spending the holiday in Illinois or flee to Florida with his family, despite urging residents to avoid gathering with loved ones by holding a “Zoom Thanksgiving.” All indoor service at restaurants has been banned.
So no Thanksgiving or Christmas dinners for the Pritzker family this year….. pic.twitter.com/EBkGf3VOp3

Liberal hypocrite Gov. Gavin Newsom got caught attending an expensive indoor dinner without wearing a mask, despite restricting gatherings to the outdoors and strongly discouraging residents from singing or playing wind instruments. The new guidelines drew celebrity ire.
Dear Emperor @GavinNewsom
During our allotted 3 family limit this Thanksgiving, if my Aunt comes over, can I throw her a slice of turkey from the window?
We promise NOT to sing… we will all just whisper, “PLEASE RECALL DIPSHIT GAVIN NEWSON!” https://t.co/wJKM2sPBtL

New York sheriffs are railing against Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s order limiting Thanksgiving gatherings to ten people, with several counties refusing to enforce the rule.
When you’re the 11th person to show up at thanksgiving but don’t want Cuomo to arrest you so you eat outside. https://t.co/vs7lmS0Z0p
