As berated by other people out to a restaurant during a pandemic.
 
2020-11-23 10:02:53 AM  
He stepped in it big time. Doofus. This is exactly why he is not my fav governor.
 
2020-11-23 10:13:06 AM  
What a freaking dumbass. How did he think he was going to get away with this? Like no one in a public restaurant is going to recognize the Governor?

Apparently, if you read to the end of the article, the meal did not appear to be indoors and there were fewer people than the max number recommended...

...but someone abiding by his own directives does not a MAGAt video make nor a shaming in a current bird-cage liner.

My governor was actually hypocritical, going to an indoor restaurant with a lot of people, and he has apologized for it but it was a stupid mistake because it gave the entire southern half of the state more ammo to use against all of us :(

I don't understand the outrage...this is typical Democrat/Liberal behavior; 'do as I say not as I do...'

Elected officials are generally not the brightest people.
 
2020-11-23 11:37:18 AM  
However, the video doesn't appear to show the governor and his party indoors, and there appears to be less than 10 people.

Typical MAGAt behavior. Making unsubstantiated accusations without regard to facts.

Glad my governor has been setting a decent example, he did say thanksgiving would be just him and his wife. But our leaders do need to set an even better example, instead of dining in they should be getting curbside or they will probably catch some heat for it hypocritical or not.

Yeah, this is being blown up for several reasons:
1) It's a democrat governor and the TrumpsterDumbsters are insane plague rats who don't understand false equivalency
2) It's Newseeek, which is a publication that leans largely alt-right
3) He was outdoors, likely with members of his household, they had masks and it was a small party, but facts don't matter to TrumpsterDumbsters.

This wasn't even at the level of bad optics. It's just some idiot in a MAGA hat pulling out their phone to go all "Karen" on the person they see as oppressing them by keeping them from getting a haircut or holding a 500 guess wedding.

This isn't Christie shutting down the state parks, then enjoying the privacy of an entire beach for himself and his family. The GOP knows how to douchebag.

That's it. That's the joke.

This really seems overblown fir all the reasons mentioned, but why would anyone expect someone to wear a mask while sitting down at the table eating and drinking?  And you were so mad about this you got CLOSER to the person???  Farking idiot.
 
2020-11-23 11:47:23 AM  
Subby says "HYPOCRITE"!!! and "PLAGUE RAT"!!!
So the article is written to imply he wasn't following his own guidelines, then the article says he was following his own guidelines and was eating outside with just his immediate family.
Fake news, on my Fark? It's so likely!

New Jersey has come full circle yet again. They're back to having a jagoff from Goldman Sachs as governor, and Chris Christie is sounding sensible.

But give it a few years and everything will do a 180.

I never really thought of Cults being political, I thought they were all about having sex with everything and marrying an iguana, or an emu, not sure which.  Which ever it is gets to brand your penis and/or vagina, I'm pretty sure I saw that on the news.

The moonies also own the Washington Times.

Cults are ALWAYS deeply political, when they reach that size. Their intention is to push their agenda on others, always. Their ideal state is one of a theocracy, headed by one of their cult leaders.

He's out of touch with the common man, ignores the people hurting here while making backroom deals with religious leaders while letting them gut public schools, keeps raising taxes with no positive changes but let's certain people take taxes to run their lavish lifestyles, hes at war with Steve Sweeney, who loves NJ, and less important of all but annoys the hell out of me, banned flavored e-cigs.

If you lived here I wouldn't have to explain it.

Giant dog is puzzled that you seem to think cults don't engage in politics.

Wacky cults, like those that think a comet will deliver them to heaven, or that their messiah is Elvis, who they believe was born on Zeta Reticuli, might not be political, but the Moonies? Absolutely - and dangerously so.

It's puzzling because your view seems incredibly naive and uninformed.

But aren't the magats the ones saying that enforcing face coverings is fascist (or something). Hell, the guy was eating outdoors with a small party without a mask. The horror. My take is that she can't be forced to wear a mask because of freedumbs but b/c he's a dem not wearing a mask is a crime somehow.
 
2020-11-23 1:25:26 PM  
"The Democratic governor and his crew were eating while wearing no protective masks."

As opposed to... what exactly? Eating while wearing a mask? How would that work?
