The owner of Innovo Kitchen expressed her frustration on the restaurant’s Instagram page, sharing a video of Gillibrand “blowing past” a manager and saying that the incident exemplifies New York politics.
“The problem with NY politics in a nut shell. My Senator blowing past my manager before she can even ask her to put a mask on. Walking right past a really big sign that says ‘masks required to enter,'” the post read.
“The masks are a mandate from the Governor. As good citizens, agree or not, we must follow our leaders. Her guest is graciously wearing one. I guess Senator Gillibrand thinks that the Governor is wrong or she is special and above the rules,” it continued.
Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand sent me a statement that she would “do better” in the future after a restaurant owner in New York City posted a video of her “blowing past [the] manager” and ignoring signs requiring masks.https://t.co/DSM8oahfGX

She was just trying to get some ranch.

Do better at not getting caught I imagine is what Gillibrand means.

Of course. Ignoring the mandates they impose on us.

What’s up with this whole “I’ll do better” line everyone uses now? It sounds like something a 6 year old would say.

Sen. Gillibrand promises to now limit her disdain for ‘peasants’ to private locations without witnesses.
She will “do better” to make sure these people know their place and submit to her authority immediately in the future.

How many have to die, @SenGillibrand, before you take this pandemic seriously?

She needs to be impeached. Now. People are dying and she’s assisting in killing them.
