(TheFreedomFlag.com)- Lockdown rules have been hugely difficult for millions of American citizens. Democratic governors and mayors, for the most part, were the worst for it too. From New York to California, Democrats imposed the most brutal lockdowns that stopped people opening their salons and stores and deprived people of work for months.
You’d think, therefore, that those Democrats would be the most likely people to defend those rules and abide by them. But they weren’t.
While millions of Americans were told not to go to work or open their stores, and to cut their hair at home, Democrat politicians have often flouted the rules as if they are more important. And today, we’re looking at three of the most egregious examples of high-profile Democrats ignoring the rules.
- Mayor Bill de Blasio’s Gym Visit
In March 2020, at the beginning of New York’s incredibly strict lockdown measures, Mayor Bill de Blasio went to the gym at his local YMCA. The mayor casually went about his business as if everything was normal, and later argued that it was fine for him to go to the gym just before the lockdown was imposed even though he told others not to.
The NYC government requested that everyone stay at home except for essential activities like shopping for groceries, but the NYC mayor was seen out at the gym and defended his actions through his spokesperson. That spokesperson said that “the mayor wanted to visit a place that keeps him grounded one last time.”

As Mayor De Blasio worked out indoors, security stood outside waiting for him along with a private car.
Must be nice to be mayor, huh?
- Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s Salon Visit
In April, Chicago’s Democratic Mayor Lori Lightfoot was caught out getting her hair done by a professional hairdresser despite implementing rules that banned people from doing that.
What’s most bizarre about this situation is that Lightfoot’s hair never looks like it has been professionally taken care of, even immediately after breaking the rules to see a hairstylist!
The controversy started when her hairstylist posted photographs of her and the mayor, stood right next to each other, on Facebook. In her post, she said she was thankful for the “pleasure of giving Mayor Lightfoot a hair trim.”
And her excuse? Well, Lightfoot said that because she is a politician, she should be allowed to.
“I’m the public face of this city. I’m on national media and I’m out in the public eye. I’m a person who, I take my personal hygiene very seriously, as I said I felt like I needed to have a haircut. I’m not able to do that myself,” she said.
Mayor Lightfoot annoyed when asked about this: “I’m the public face of this city. I’m on national media and I’m out in the public eye. I’m a person who, I take my personal hygiene very seriously, as I said I felt like I needed to have a haircut. I’m not able to do that myself.” https://t.co/8or0mSeMrK

“One rule for three, another for me,” right?
- Nancy “Antoinette” Pelosi’s Salon “Set Up”
And finally, we mustn’t forget Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s visit to a local salon in San Francisco in early September.
The House Speaker was caught on CCTV footage attending a salon and not wearing a mask, despite having repeatedly told the people of San Francisco not to go to the salon and to wear a mask at all times.
Pelosi had booked an appointment with an independent hairstylist who operated at the E Salon in San Francisco. When the owner of the E Salon saw the footage she released it to the press and publicly asked why Pelosi was allowed to break the rules while she wasn’t able to fully open her salon as normal.
Pelosi didn’t back down or apologize, but instead called it a “set up” and asked for the salon to apologize.
She can never admit when she’s wrong, can she?
