San Francisco mayor defiant after caught maskless in nightclub despite mandate: Don’t need ‘fun police’
San Francisco Mayor London Breed remained steadfastly defiant about her behavior Friday after she was photographed at a city jazz club dancing and singing without a mask on earlier this week despite a city mandate.
“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.
But Breed’s own city ordinance, one of the strictest in the country, requires masks indoors, vaccinated or not, unless the person is actively eating or drinking.
“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.” – READ MORE
