George Stephanopoulos had already irked Hamptons residents by going out in public after his wife contracted Covid-19 but now the GMA anchor is battling the virus himself and is ignoring mandates to wear a mask in public.
The pale-looking ABC Newsman was spotted by The Post on Monday afternoon taking a stroll in East Hampton, engrossed in a long conversation on his mobile phone with his mask hanging around his neck.
One outraged witness said Stephanopoulos who announced he tested positive for the virus last week after his wife Ali Wentworth contracted it was seen leaving his Hamptons home in a pair of shorts and walking for about a mile along East Hampton lanes, with his mask down the entire time.
The witness said, For somebody who reports on the pandemic every day, and is broadcasting guidelines about safe social distancing, George didnt really seem to care.
He was on his own, walking through the lanes and past East Hampton Guild Hall, on his cellphone the whole time, yakking with his mask around his neck.
He tested positive, his wife tested positive, why cant he follow the local mandates to wear a mask in public, why cant he just stay home?
According to the town of East Hampton website, a mandate for people to wear masks in public was already in place when Governor Andrew Cuomos execcutive order saying everyone must wear a face covering went into effect on April 17.
Stephanopoulos, 59, has already been accused by a hacked-off neighbor in the Hamptons for not appropriately following social distancing guidelines.

“Rules are for little people.”
citizens subjects are equal but some are more equal than others.
I thought the virus would glide over the top of his head due to his lack of height. Some must fall to his low level I guess.
If he kills all the Hamptonites, I dont see the problem.
But he is a little person.
As an aside, how many of these NYC people have spread this virus by just bailing on thier city places, and going to thier second or vacation homes.
Seems like a lot of inconsiderate a holes coming out of New York with no respect for others.
Need a picture of Donald Sutherlands scream in the invasion of the body snatchers
Is there a snitch number to call ?
He is a “made man” ever since he bailed Hussein out of a Freudian Slip...
...and then continuing to pose as an impartial journalist.
Exactly. He’s special. He’s George stephanopoulos, he’s a Clintonista pretending to be a newsman, who got that gig precisely because he’s a Clinton operative. So he’s special he doesn’t have to follow rules and regulations imposed on the rest of us. Because, because, well just because he’s Stephanopoulos........
So he was allowed to freely travel from NYC to his second home in the Hamptons while criticing the Michigan protestors who are forbidden do the same?
He’s faking it. So is Fredo.
That’s why a lot of celebrities are getting this virus... They think they’re exempt from the rules.... and if they do get it they’ve got the best doctors, so no worries
Don’t these people know who he is?
It don’t matter! It won’t travel very far outside.. The wind and sunshine evaporates it!!
I hope his mother didn’t have to drive him.
He is little well at least in stature.
I wouldn’t snitch on him (unless the law made me fo it).
He’s a liberal ‘elite’... the rules don’t apply to the ‘elites’... everyone knows that, right?
