SF Mayor's Response When Caught Violating Her Own Mask Rule Completely Eviscerates Mandates

We’ve seen a long list of Democrats break their own COVID mandates.

But San Francisco Mayor London Breed, the latest violator in the “Rules for thee but not for me” club really does take the cake for one of the most obnoxious responses, after being caught breaking her own city mask mandate.


Breed imposed an indoor mask mandate on the city’s businesses in August. “Everyone, including people who are fully vaccinated, must wear a well-fitted mask in indoor public settings at all times except,” the order declares, “people may remove their well-fitted mask while actively eating or drinking.”

As we reported yesterday, Breed was busted singing, dancing, and partying with a lot of other unmasked people at the Black Cat Nightclub in very close quarters. She was not “actively eating or drinking.” Among her group was Alicia Garza, one of the co-founders of the BLM. Breed is the one dancing in black, next to the wall, with the darker hair.

The video was taken by a San Francisco Chronicle reporter who interviewed her. She also took other pictures of Breed without her mask on.


The reporter termed it a “fun night.” The reporter did report that Breed was not wearing a mask as required by the mandate. The reporter admitted she also wasn’t wearing a mask either during the interview. She obviously was more intrigued by the “fun” than by the hypocrisy of it all.

But Breed wasn’t only not apologetic, she was clearly mad that anyone would dare question her actions, even if she was breaking her own mandate.

From Fox News:

“While I’m eating and drinking I’m going to keep my mask off,” Breed, a Democrat, told reporters while calling the story a “distraction,” according to FOX 2 of the Bay Area. “And yes, in the time while we’re drinking like everyone else there, we were all having a good time and again all vaccinated.”

The mayor insisted the focus of media attention should be on live music returning to San Francisco and said that putting a mask on in between eating and drinking isn’t “realistic.”

“The fact that this is even a story is sad,” she said.

Oh, so you mean you think your own mandate is unreasonable? Do go on. You weren’t actively eating or drinking as your mandate says.

Then she really went over the slide with her defiance.


“My drink was sitting at the table. I got up and started dancing because I was feeling the spirit and I wasn’t thinking about a mask,” Breed explained. “I was thinking about having a good time and in the process I was following the health orders.”

Breed added, she and fellow club-goers “don’t need the fun police to come in and micromanage and tell us what we should or shouldn’t be doing.”

“The fact that this story became about me and less about the artists and nightlife, which I will continue to enjoy in San Francisco, is very unfortunate,” she told reporters.

Nice way to completely eviscerate your own mandates. You see it for yourself — it isn’t reasonable — but you still want to impose it on other people. You are the “fun police” trying to shut down everyone else, but you want freedom to have your own fun and you don’t even see the hypocrisy. Talk about an obnoxious take. Repeal the mandate since you yourself have explained why it’s completely unreasonable.
