A restaurant owner said on Fox&Friends Friday that there is hypocrisy over the enforcement of mask rules after his 6-year-old son was scolded for not wearing a mask on a flight.
Slapfish restaurant owner and chef Andrew Gruel called out John Kerry, who was caught on video without a mask on an American Airlines flight.
“The story is just another participant in a jam-packed lineup of hypocrites these days, and at first it seems silly,” Gruel said. “And we kind of laugh about it. But then when you pull away from the layers and you look at this selective outrage and you counterpoint that to the fact that, as I mentioned, people have been removed from planes and then John Kerry just has us in a different kind of glib response to it, like ‘oh, it’s the good old malarkey again.’”
Gruel referred to a tweet he posted about Kerry, noting that thousands of people supported Kerry in the comments and made excuses for him going maskless.
“I find that selective outrage to be really curious, especially if the excuse that he’s really eating. And in many cases, people just made things up and said no, no, his book was a sandwich,” Gruel said.
