San Francisco Mayor London Breed is being slammed by supporters and critics alike after she was caught on camera singing and dancing at a jazz club with no mask on — in defiance of her own city mask ordinance.
To make matters worse, she’s hotly defending herself and by so doing, further underscoring not only her own hypocrisy but also the absurdity of her city’s extreme mask mandates.
In a since-deleted Instagram post from the Black Cat Nightclub’s Instagram page, Fox News reported, as well as a tweet from a Chronicle reporter who happened to be in attendance as Breed partied maskless, Madame Mayor can be seen dancing and singing and clearly not eating or drinking, the only circumstances in which, under her city’s current mask requirements, it would have been OK for her to breathe freely.

“While I’m eating and drinking I’m going to keep my mask off,” the Democratic mayor told reporters, according to Fox News. “And yes, in the time while we’re drinking like everyone else there, we were all having a good time and again all vaccinated.”
“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.”
The majority of the other patrons in the club seem to also have not been thinking about masks, because few were wearing theirs, having either forgotten that they live in a post-pandemic progressive dystopia of Breed’s own making or feeling they too, like their own mayor, were not subject to the plebian health requirements.
Still, Breed’s city ordinance for masking applies to both vaccinated and unvaccinated residents. Despite all appearances, it presumably doesn’t exempt mayors from being held to the same standard.
Breed nonetheless dismissed the criticism as a “distraction,” saying that the “fact that this is even a story is sad.”
Apparently intent on digging her own grave, the mayor went on to declare, hilariously, that she and the other patrons “don’t need the fun police to come in and micromanage and tell us what we should or shouldn’t be doing,” also saying that it wasn’t “realistic” to put on a mask between eating and drinking.
So she doesn’t need the “fun police” micromanaging her life, now?
