(Liberty Bell) – Have you ever heard the phrase, “rules for thee but not for me?” If you haven’t, you should know that this is more or less the unofficial slogan of the modern-day Democratic Party, especially in its more progressive, far-left branch, which we are seeing become more and more mainstream.
According to Gateway Pundit, the latest practical application of this principle can be found in the recent admission by California Democrat Gov. Gavin Newsom in a piece from the LA Times that his 12-year-old daughter has not yet been vaccinated against the coronavirus, despite the fact she now qualifies for it and the K-12 mandate that his state currently has in place.
The LA Times said in its report that, “Newsom’s office would not comment on whether the governor would support legislation to eliminate personal belief exemptions for the COVID-19 vaccine.”
“The governor has said the state’s process offers an ‘accommodating’ personal belief exemption and will provide adequate time to hesitant parents to talk to their doctors and school nurses. He said his own daughter, who recently turned 12 years old and is eligible for the vaccine, has not yet received it because she has ‘a series of other shots’ to get first,” the report continued.
“The democrat governor prioritized other vaccines than the COVID-19 vaccine that could ‘save others lives’ and ‘would end this pandemic.’ Is he trying to say that this pandemic isn’t as dangerous as what the media want us to believe?” the GP report said.
Again, this is clearly a violation of the governor’s very own K-12 vaccine mandate, which reveals an abuse of power since he is breaking his own rules that he expects all other residents to obey.
“On October 1, Democrat Governor Gavin Newsom announced the nation’s first k-12 vaccine mandate for in-person learning. Fresh off of a rigged recall election, he has gone into overdrive,” GP said in their report. “Previously, students who are 16 or older are only eligible for the Pfizer jab. Now, children ages 12 to 15 are qualified to get the Pfizer shot under emergency use.”

This is hardly the first time that Newsom has broken one of his own mandates. Last July, Newsom actually pulled his 10-year-old son out of summer camp after maskless photos of the children surfaced.
In the state of California, kids between the ages of 2-11 have to wear masks during “camps for youth, youth sports, and other youth activities including theater and music performances and band.”
And, true to form, Newsom pretended to be the victim and ended up tossing the summer camp under the big, round wheels of the bus after being confronted about the picture of his son without a mask.
“Another incident was when Gavin Newsom attended a dinner party (screen shot here) at The French Laundry, a restaurant in Napa Valley that charges $800 per person for their tasting menu while he told Californians they can’t gather with their families for Thanksgiving,” the report said.
The bottom line here is that Newsom thinks you ought to give your child the jab, while he makes excuses to avoid doing so with his own children. Your child has to wear a mask, but his doesn’t.
This, folks, is the very definition of elitism.
Here are some reactions to this nonsense from folks on Twitter:
How is this not the biggest story in America right now.
Gavin Newsom mandates everyone else’s kids to get Covid vaccinated yet he doesn’t get his own kid Covid vaccinated, basically admitting that she doesn’t even have her other vaccines yet, the actually effective ones. pic.twitter.com/KfF1wln6i8

Is this true?
This is what I don’t like …The double standard. Gavin Newsom's daughter not yet vaccinated as he implements sweeping mandate https://t.co/8PCosVcTN8
