No one is above coronavirus law.
Chilean President Sebastian Pinera was slapped with a $3,500 fine on Friday after posing for a selfie on the beach with a bystander without wearing a mask as required during the coronavirus pandemic, health authorities said.
Chile has strict rules on mask wearing in all public places and violations are punishable with sanctions that include fines and even jail terms.
Pinera apologized then turned himself in shortly after the selfie surfaced on social media in early December.
The president explained he had been walking alone along the beach near his home in the posh Chilean seaside town of Cachagua when a woman recognized him and asked for a photo together.
The selfie shows the president and the woman standing very near to one another on a sunny day, neither wearing masks.
Actually, the elite are above coronavirus law.
We know that all of these people pushing these rules down our throats aren’t so big on them in their personal lives.
- Gavin Newsom’s Government Says to Put Your Mask on Between Bites While Eating
- Thanksgiving-Destroying Medical Hoaxers Attended Gavin Newsom’s Maskless Dinner Party
- Nancy Pelosi seen without mask inside San Francisco hair salon
- Feinstein spotted without mask at Dulles Airport despite calls for ‘mandatory’ policy
Probably, Pinera was being punished more for mingling with peasants than he was for violating mask law.
We’re entering a new era where the ruling elite shouldn’t be seen taking photographs with their lessers.
