Who would have thought the French Laundry would be known for something other than its fashionable dining. It’s also appears to getting a reputation for coronavirus hypocrites… folks more apt to fit the phrase, “Do as I say, not as I do.”
First it was California Governor Gavin Newsom caught on camera attending a Napa dinner party while telling other not to do the same. He later apologized.
EXCLUSIVE: We've obtained photos of Governor Gavin Newsom at the Napa dinner party he's in hot water over. The photos call into question just how outdoors the dinner was.

Then, San Francisco Mayor Laura Breed also found her way to the French Laundry the night after Newsom’s controversial visit. The Mayor is said to announce tougher COVID restrictions due to a “dangerous” rise in cases.
