Pelosi and Newsom and Phil Murphy, oh my!  All have been caught doing things during the pandemic that they’ve cautioned the public against doing. That would be called hypocrisy – do as I say, not as I do. Now, another far-left politician has been busted in the act. Joining the liberal hypocrite club is Denver Mayor Michael Hancock. (I assume there is no relationship to Herbie or John), who urged Denver residents to stay home for Thanksgiving. A few hours later, he flew to Houston, Texas, for the Thanksgiving holiday.

He posted this the morning before Thanksgiving.


Perhaps he should have worn a disguise when he went to the airport because people saw him.

After his hypocritical Houston trip was exposed, Mayor Hancock apologized:

The mayor’s tweeted out statement included:

“I have shared how my family canceled our plans for our traditional multi-household Thanksgiving celebration,” Democratic Mayor Michael Hancock wrote on Twitter. “What I did not share, but should have, is that my wife and my daughter have been in Mississippi, where my daughter recently took a job. As the holiday approached, I decided it would be safer for me to travel to see them than to have two family members travel back to Denver.”

“I recognize that my decision has disappointed many who believe it would have been better to spend Thanksgiving alone,” he added. “As a public official, whose conduct is rightly scrutinized for the message it sends to others, I apologize to the residents of Denver who see my decision as conflicting with the guidance to stay at home for all but essential travel.”

Residents of Denver were not pleased.


Hancock finished his tweeted apology with, ” I made my decision as a husband and father, and for those who are angry and disappointed, I humbly ask you to forgive decisions that are borne of my heart and not my head.” Nice words, but what he really meant was do what I say, not as I do.
