Billionaire Governor Of Illinois Makes Very Embarrassing Admission About Wife And The Stay-At-Home Order He Pushed On The State

(Tea Party PAC) – There’s no doubt that Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker, a very comfortable and well-to-do billionaire, is embarrassed by the behavior of his wife, who he has now admitted skipped town to avoid the state’s stay-at-home order. You know, the same one that he himself instituted for every citizen of the state he’s been entrusted to govern.

Well it turns out his blushing bride high-tailed it to the couple’s $12.1 million equestrian estate located in South Florida. He also indicated that she’d recently paid a visit to their farm in Wisconsin too. Gee, guess what’s good for the goose isn’t all that great for the gander, huh?

This is a perfect example of the kind of behavior that would ensue in a true socialist country where a privileged few who call of the shots would decide what is best for you and me, but not be bound to those laws and rules themselves.

Hard pass from me. How about you?

Here’s more from Breitbart:

“My wife and daughter were down in Florida in early March and, in fact even a little before that, and you know, they sheltered in place when the stay-at-home order came up,” he said.

“And they stayed there until very recently, so you know we’ll say, you know, we have a working farm. They’re there now. There are animals on that farm. That is an essential function to take care of animals at a farm,” he added, as nonessential travel remains “discouraged” in Illinois:

WATCH: @govpritzker asked where his family has been during stay at home order.

He admits they were in FL at one of their homes…and then traveled to another one of their homes in WI…to take care of farm animals. #twill

“A Pritzker spokeswoman later clarified that the family is at home in Chicago and have visited the farm but haven’t stayed there,” the Chicago Tribune reported.

Pritzker came under fire last month after it was revealed that his wife avoided the state’s All-in Illinois” initiative, fleeing to Florida — which, under Gov. Ron DeSantis (R), escaped “draconian” lockdown orders — instead of riding out the stay-at-home mandate alongside Illinoisans unable to return to work as a result of her husband’s orders.

The citizens of Illinois have every right to be ticked off at Pritzker for this shenanigans. He and his wife are not above the law. If they create an order and expect every person who lives in the state to abide by it, they too have to submit themselves to it. Otherwise, it’s hypocrisy and makes it seem as if they are somehow a protected class or elevated group of individuals with more rights than the average person.

Which is precisely how the people of Illinois have taken it.

The governor initially refused to address the rumors of his wife’s whereabouts, contending that it was “inappropriate” and “reprehensible” that a reporter for the Patch covered the story.

“Where’s the first lady? Is she accompanied by a state security detail? Has she engaged in nonessential travel? What is your response to people who say the state home order and nonessential travel bans aren’t being abided by your family?” a reporter asked during an April presser.

“Well, first of all, I want to say that in politics, it used to be that we kept our families out of it,” Pritzker said, attempting to separate his family from his “official duties.”

“You know, my official duties have nothing to do with my family, so I’m just not going to answer that question. It’s inappropriate, and I find it reprehensible, honestly, that that reporter wrote a story about it,” he added.

No, it’s not inappropriate to be asked about it. His wife is considered a public figure and thus has a taxpayer-funded staffer and two taxpayer-funded offices. So yeah, what she does with money that is being supplied by the state is pretty much everyone’s business. Whether Pritzker likes it or not, he needs to reign his wife in and remind her that they must have a united front if they want folks to obey the rules they’ve set out for quarantine.

She’s not special. She doesn’t get to skirt around the rules. If the people of their state have to stay at home, so do they. It’s common sense. This is just another example of wealthy liberals who are out of touch with reality and are abusing their privilege and political power.

“What’s inappropriate is the Pritzker family’s track record of abiding by the rules only when it suits them,” Kayleen Carlson, executive director of Illinois Rising Action, told Breitbart News in an exclusive statement at the time.

“The first lady has a taxpayer-funded staffer and two taxpayer-funded offices – so her whereabouts are not off limits,” Carlson added.

Pritzker’s recent admission is of particular interest, as Wisconsin’s Supreme Court recently struck down Gov. Tony Evers’ (D) stay-at-home order. Meanwhile, the people of Illinois remain under a stay-at-home order, currently set to expire May 29, as all regions remain in Pritzker’s restrictive phase two of reopening, allowing nonessential retail stores to reopen “for curb-side pickup and delivery” only. Essential stores remain open but with restrictions.

Perhaps what Pritzker ought to do is spend more time getting his state opened back up so people can return to work and get on with their lives? Might be worth a thought.

  1. The ELITE’S middle finger to the peons is in clear view here.Nevertheless they keep electing these PIGS ( sorry pigs ,you are better than these pigs)

  2. Well I think if you have a second home to go to it would be ok. Now to believe that she was working on the farm is a little far fetched. She may have been giving out the orders. Here in NJ the Governor asked people not to go to their second homes down the Shore. States that the small town police and emergency services couldn’t handle it

  6. …anyone who thinks either of these two pigs were down in Florida working with their…”animals”…or ever work with their animals…is an idiot.

    • The question is who takes care of these animals when they arn’t there? You can bet his wife is not out there in the barn mucking out stalls or feeding these animals! After all it would be beneath her and it might get her boots and clothes dirty!

  7. The current phrase We are all in this together is total BS.That phrase does nothing to lessen the pain people are going through.Obviouly those that have the money leave town and continue to live the life of Riley.It is amazing also when these Governors are declaring what businesses are not necessary theirs always are.All businesses and jobs are necessary to sustain life.Jackass governors people need to pay bills,rent,mortgages and buy food.By the way is getting to short supplies in places and food hoarding is becoming a problem.

  8. Liar Pritzker. Only addressed his wife after he pleaded and begged her to come home and then she did. So went to their farm in Wisconsin? Sure she got down and mailed the cows and fed the pigs. Think he should fine her and throw her in jail for disobeying him. Don’t you?
    Gov is supposed to uphold the rights of all citizens, not suppress them. Right to speak. Right to protest. Right to earn a living for those not having million and billion dollar trust funds. Right to pay your bills. Right to NOT live on the street. Right to promote small businesses who pay taxes and fund ALL government workers, schools, etc.

  9. My best friend’s sister-in-law makes $94 an hour on the computer. She has been out of work for 6 months but last month her pay check was $12632 just working on the computer for a few hours.
