DC Authorities Will Investigate POTUS Breaking Mask Rule While Inside Trump Hotel

This feels an awful lot like a political stunt.

As the nation continues to debate the efficacy of face masks and the legality of mandating them, any person of note caught traipsing about without one will be fodder for some sort of scrutiny.  And, when you’re the President of the United States, that scrutiny will be amplified to no end.

President Donald Trump was a late adopter of the face mask for coronavirus prevention, having refrained from donning one in public until just a few days ago.  This came after a number of disparate opinions on the subject were disseminated by the CDC in the early stages of the pandemic.

In recent days, however, a number of municipalities have begun enforcing mask-wearing mandates in hopes of helping to prevent the spread of the deadly illness.  Washington DC is just such a city, and local authorities are now allegedly investigating the President’s bare-faced appearance in the lobby of his own hotel on The Beltway.

The president’s maskless appearance at Trump International Hotel this week – in apparent defiance of District of Columbia coronavirus regulations – caught the attention of local authorities, who inspected the hotel on Wednesday to check forcompliance with city rules.

The investigator found no violations at the time of the visit, but the agency pledged to continue monitoring the hotel.

District Mayor Muriel Bowser, a Democrat, this spring ordered people to cover their faces while in the lobbies and common areas of hotels and to maintain six feet of distance from others, in an effort to limit the spread of the novel coronavirus.

Bowser and Trump have been going back and forth with some ferocity as of late, after the DC Mayor’s office and the White House sparred over the the policing of protests in our nation’s capital after the death of George Floyd.

This latest investigatory stunt may very well be an extension of this squabbling.
