Hollywood star Rob Schneider went on Twitter Friday to mock California Democratic governor Gavin Newsom for his hypocrisy over coronavirus bans.
Schneider mocks Newsom
"I'm making a list of people who might be less concerned with keeping track of Gavin Newsom's stay-at-home order. So far I have: 1. Gavin Newsom," Schneider tweeted alongside a photo of Newsom that he shared with around one last month A dozen friends attended a dinner party at the chic French laundry restaurant in Napa wine country.
This was in direct violation of Newsom's strict COVID-19 lockdown orders, which the people of California are expected to follow at all times.

"I made a serious mistake," said Newsom, according to the KMPH. "Instead of sitting down, I should have got up and walked back and got in my car and headed to my house."
"The spirit of what I preach all along has been contradicted and I must own it," added the Democrat. “And so I want to apologize to you because I have to preach and practice. Don't just preach and don't practice. "
Schneider has beaten Newsom up before
This wasn't the first time Schneider, a former Saturday Night Live cast member, called Newsom a hypocrite.
"Dear emperor Gavin Newsom, ”Schneider tweeted in October. "During our 3-family limit this Thanksgiving Day, can I throw a piece of turkey out of the window for her if my aunt comes by? We promise NOT to sing … we will all just whisper: "PLEASE RECALL DIPSHIT GAVIN NEWSON!"
Schneider was referring to Newsom's strict COVID-19 Thanksgiving instructions, which limited the number of people who could congregate in private homes.

Newsom is just one of many Democratic leaders caught violating their own COVID-19 rules recently. "Rules for you but not for me", indeed.
