Lawmakers returning from John Lewis funeral exempt from D.C. quarantine order

JTN:

Washington, D.C. attendees to the Atlanta funeral of the late Rep. John Lewis are exempt from following the District of Columbia’s strict quarantine rules after returning home from Georgia, the D.C. mayor’s office says. 

Lewis, a longtime member of Congress and one of the major figures of the American civil rights movement of the 1950s and 1960s, died on July 17 after a battle with pancreatic cancer. After lying in state at the United States Capitol, his body was returned to Atlanta for a funeral at that city’s historic Ebenezer Baptist Church. 

Among the attendees at that funeral were dozens of members of Congress, including Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), Senators Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) and Cory Booker (D-N.J.), Maryland House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.), and House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn (D-S.C.). 

Under current District of Columbia rules, all of those individuals would normally be required to self-quarantine for two weeks upon returning to D.C. City Mayor Muriel Bowser’s recent quarantine order dictates that any individual traveling to a “high-risk area” for “non-essential” reasons must self-quarantine for 14 days upon entering the District.  more here

  1. I wouldn’t be surprised if, eventually, some citizen, fed up with all this BULLCRAP, maybe someone who watched a parent or a spouse die on the other side of a window, or saw everything they spent their life working for be destroyed, decides to become the final arbiter of justice for some of these corrupt denizens of our government. 100 years of abuse, criminality and treason could break a lot of normal, law-abiding and faithful people.

    Just a random thought.

    Well then, either they aren’t “strict” or they aren’t “rules.”

    Hypocrisy is more like it.

  3. So what if any of these jackasses gets the wu flu and infects others in DC after they return. I hate the double standard and exemptions that these jerks receive, I will not shed a tear for any of them if they get sick and die. Are quarantines only for those who have no political power?

  6. Isn’t there a French word for being an irresponsible piece of shit, self-righteous, self-important, self-aggrandizing, pestilential government asshole who exempts himself from all the rules which must be obeyed by the peasants?

    Can’t think of it … Nomenklatura? Partei Offizielz? FuhrerStaffel? Target?

  7. Soon they will demand that we pray to their god “Corona 19”
    and bow to these charlatans, its DC pharisees.
    Remember this is the New math where 2=0 or (2 sets of rules = 0 rules)

  9. They’re the ruling class, the Nobility has never been expected to follow the rules made for the commoners.

    Been that way since, forever.

  10. Why is it that when one of these pieces of shit congress rats kicks the bucket they are instantly lifted to a state of Sainthood? To listen to these bastards you would think that if it weren’t for this lifetime tax teat sucking stain the blacks would still be slaves picking cotton on their master’s plantation. There, I said it.

  13. Answerman Cooper remember when Fauci had to admit that they were discouraging mask use by the hoi polloi in order to conserve the supply for the sainted Health Care Workers, who then went out and danced in the streets with the BLM rioters?

    I think you’re right, and they’re discouraging HCQ for the hoi polloi to conserve the supply for sainted Government Workers, who are thus free to dance in the street with the Ghana Pallbearers.

  14. “…House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn (D-S.C.).”

    …”Whip” sounds pretty racist and White Supremacy-y, so it needs to be CANCELLED because, rayyyciss.

    …also, Jim Clyburn needs to be cancelled, too, ALSO because,rayyciss, also…

    “Has he paid his dues? Is he black enough?… John Lewis and I were out there marching and organizing sit-ins back in the ’60s so that his children and my children would not have to do it…. We would have been failures if had to do the same things we did.”

  16. Erect gallows on the steps of our Capitol Building and hang every single one of these traitorous, corrupt, power mad, democrat communist fucks by the neck until they are dead. Start with Barry Obama, Pelosi, and Schumer. It’s rapidly becoming the only way we will save our Republic. Need to throw in a few republicans also, starting with Mitt Romney.

    Hang ’em high!
