The Democratic Mayor of Denver was caught violating his own COVID travel ordinance, getting on a plane to see family just 30 minutes after decreeing that people should not travel to visit their own relatives.

“Pass the potatoes, not COVID,” Denver Mayor Michael Hancock tweeted Wednesday, adding “Stay home as much as you can, especially if you’re sick. Host virtual gatherings instead of in-person dinners.”

Half an hour after the tweet was sent out, Hancock was spotted boarding a flight to Houston.Video (US only):
