Rhode Island’s Democratic Gov. Gina Raimondo is taking heat after she suggested that people stay home to stay safe, but a few days later ended up going to wine and paint night and was caught on camera.

There wasn’t any laws broken, but she’s being called a hypocrite for telling constituents to do one thing while she does another and doesn’t take her own advice.

Despite suggesting that others stay home, Raimondo went to wine and paint night and someone recognized her and took photographs of the hypocritical behavior.

Fox News reported on the hypocrite choice of the Governor:

The picture, taken by Erica Oliveras last Friday, shows Democratic Gov. Gina Raimondo sitting at table in Barnaby’s Public House in Providence without a mask, WLNE reported.

Oliveras told the station that backlash over the photo was blown out of proportion because Raimondo had only taken off the mask to drink her wine.

Still, others felt that Raimondo’s actions were hypocritical, given that four days prior she urged Rhode Islanders in a tweet to “stay home except for essential activities & wear a mask anytime you’re with people you don’t live with.”

And as posted on the original source:

Many others though think the governor is setting a bad example.

“Shame on you Gina,” Susan Goodman, from Providence, said. “She shouldn’t even be at an event like that. You can drink wine at home. I’m an experienced wine drinker Gina, do it at home.”


As you can see above, Raimondo wrote “It’s week two of our pause. I know it’s been hard, but I want to thank every Rhode Islander who’s following our guidance. Please, stay home except for essential activities & wear a mask anytime you’re with people you don’t live with. Together, we can turn our case numbers around.” And a few days later she’s out having wine and painting some random thing instead of staying home except for essential activities.

I guess paint night is an essential activity now?

Or is it a peaceful protest?
