It never goes as they planned.
Typically, they take their taxpayer-provided security to some public establishment to try and convince the working folk that ‘they’re one of them.’
It goes about as you’d expect it.
Here’s a fine example from across the pond:
Notice how the official takes his mask off once he's outside, though surrounded by a dozen people. Why would he do that?
It's obvious - the elites know the masks do nothing, it's all a giant charade.
Increasingly, more and more common people are not afraid to speak truth to power.
How long do you think 'power' is going to put up with that?
