Mayor Eric Garcetti is doing what he does best. Putting the blame on others. This past weekend he went on CNN and blamed the state and county officials for opening Los Angeles too early.
“I think a lot of people don’t understand, mayors often have no control what opens up and doesn’t — that’s either at a state or county level,” Garcetti said. “And I do agree that those things happened too quickly.”
But of course, he's not right. Local leaders like Garcetti are permitted to issue closure and stay-at-home restrictions that are stricter than those issued by the county or state, just not rules that are more lenient, officials have said.
In past, he's even said on record that he will determine when the city opens up. “Our timing on opening may vary from other parts of the state,”Garcetti said in early May. “I will reopen our city with careful consideration, guided by public health professionals.”
But now he's warning that the city of LA may be forced to undergo stay-at-home orders again if cases and ICU numbers do not go down.?
This is Mayor Yoga Pants in his prime. He opened up too early, gave businesses, and Angelenos hope we can go back to normal again just for him to close again and now he's trying to place them blame on others rather than himself.
WHY DO WE PUT UP WITH THIS?
