Rules for thee, but not for me once again after Oregon Democrat Governor Kate Brown was photographed maskless while indoors attending the LGBTQ Victory Fund’s 30th Anniversary Gala in Washington D.C. to be inducted into its Hall of Fame on Saturday. Washington D.C. does not have an indoor mask mandate; Oregon is one of a few states that still have an indoor mask mandate.
A video posted to Twitter shows the miserable scene outside of Capitol Hill Elementary School in Portland, Oregon. The elementary school students were filmed eating lunch outside, sitting on buckets, away from friends in 40-degree temperatures, presumably as part of the school’s COVID-19 mitigation policy.
The shocking video was sent to The Post Millennial on Wednesday showing Kindergarten students at Capitol Hill Elementary School eating lunch outside one of the students’ parents at Capitol Hill Elementary School told The Post Millennial that forcing their children to eat outside was their “final straw” with Portland Public Schools.
“As a parent of a student at Capitol Hill Elementary, this policy is abhorrent,” the parent told The Post Millennial. “I am beyond furious, especially knowing children are low-risk,” they continued. “Governor Brown maskless in DC this weekend was the last straw. We’ve been patient with all of the policies here in Portland in hopes of not being ostracized within the community, but this is the last straw.”
“I will be picking my child up to have lunch at home,” they added. The Post Millennial reached out to Portland Public Schools for comment but have not yet heard back.
