So we all know that Gavin Newsom, Ruler of All of California (May He Live Forever), was busted attending a swanky restaurant dinner with a bunch of people while he was lecturing all of the plebs under his rule that they'd better not eat at restaurants or gather anywhere with members of other families.
WELLLL now it's come out that among those people scrunched together with Emperor Newsom at the restaurant were top brass from the California Medical Association!
According to all the people sitting there, they are not supposed to be doing exactly what they're doing.
And look at the pictures as many times as you want, there are no masks or social distancing to be seen.
Take it away, Fox 11:
Not only do [the pictures] call into question Governor Newsom's explanation that the dinner was outside they also reveal that two high-level members of the California Medical Association were there at the dinner with the governor and that's sparking outrage.

Neither of them, as a matter of fact, no one at the table was wearing a mask or social-distancing despite the CMA funding an ad campaign this year urging people to wear masks.
Your turn, Politico (btw when super liberal Politico is openly calling out super liberal politicians, you know something serious is going on):
California Medical Association officials were among the guests seated next to Gov. Gavin Newsom at a top California political operative's opulent birthday dinner at the French Laundry restaurant this month.
CEO Dustin Corcoran and top CMA lobbyist Janus Norman both joined the dinner at the French Laundry, an elite Napa fine dining restaurant, to celebrate the 50th birthday of lobbyist and longtime Newsom adviser Jason Kinney, a representative of the powerful interest group confirmed Wednesday morning.
The state has issued guidelines prohibiting more than three households from gathering privately — a limit clearly exceeded by the French Laundry dinner.
Doctors and other health care workers have been vigilant since the pandemic began in asking Califorians to stay at home — a call that has ramped up in recent weeks as hospitals across the nation fill to capacity.
The CMA has long been a powerful presence in the state Capitol, and its Sacramento officials are longtime friends with Kinney. The group spent $2.1 million last year lobbying state leaders.
The doctors' lobby this year successfully convinced Newsom and state lawmakers not to slash Medi-Cal reimbursement rates that were funded by a tobacco tax that CMA spearheaded in 2016. Besides listing dozens of bills, CMA also reported lobbying the Newsom administration on Covid-19 screening and testing rules.
Do as I say, not as I do!
