Denver Mayor Who Demanded City Lockdown Then Flew to Texas for Thanksgiving ‘Apologizes’

Denver’s Democrat Mayor Michael Hancock has “apologized” after being caught traveling to Texas on Thanksgiving even after tell his constituents to stay home for the holidays.

The day before Thanksgiving, Mayor Hancock was advising Denverites to stay home to avoid “passing COVID.”

The mayor even posted a tweet telling citizens to “stay home.”

But not long after scolding his city over virus mitigation, it was learned that Hancock ignored his own decree and flew to Houston, Texas, to enjoy a Thanksgiving day with his family.

Meeting a backlash, Hancock explained that his travel to Houston was somehow in keeping with coronavirus lockdowns.

“As the holiday approached, I decided it would be safer for me to travel to see them than have two family members travel back to Denver,” said Hancock. “I recognize that my decision has disappointed many who believe it would have been better to spend Thanksgiving alone. 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.”

The hypocrite whet on to plead that he made the decision “as a husband and father,” and insisted that those “angry and disappointed” should give him a break.

“I humbly ask you to forgive decisions that are borne of my heart and not my head.”

Apparently, the coronavirus knows when someone is making decisions with “their heart” and all is well.

Like all Democrats, Hancock wants you to obey his dictates, but he does not feel he is beholden to those same rules.

But, Democrat voters are congenitally stupid, so he will likely be easily re-elected just because he has the “D” next to his name.
