A vast majority of celebrities and politicians caught violating various COVID-19 mandates and ordinances tend to be Democrats, and the latest example was President Joe Biden himself.
According to the Washington Examiner, the president was seen on camera with his wife, First Lady Jill Biden, strolling through a fancy Washington D.C. restaurant without wearing a mask, which was a clear violation of the city’s rules regarding masks.
RNC Research’s official Twitter account uploaded a video clip of Biden’s mask-free jaunt through D.C. Italian seafood restaurant Fiola Mare over the weekend. Virtually everyone around him, including U.S. Secret Service agents and restaurant staff, were donning masks.

Why were they there?
As Americans continue to struggle, with the new threat of critical supply chain disruptions and the possibility of not being able to purchase Christmas presents, the Biden’s enjoyed dinner at the Michelin-starred restaurant without a care in the world, or any regard for the city’s masking policies.
According to the Daily Mail, the two had just come from a mass at Holy Trinity Catholic Church and the 40th Annual National Peace Officers’ Memorial Service in DC.
The trip to the Italian restaurant has been officially labeled as a “date night” for the president and his wife, which apparently excluded the two from bothering to abide by the same ridiculous masking rules that the second-class residents of the city have to follow.
The D.C. mask mandate is still very much in full force, having been renewed as recently as July as COVID-19 delta variant cases skyrocketed in the nation’s capital city.
“Per CDC guidance and DC Mayor Muriel Bowser’s executive order, all individuals over age 2 are required to wear a mask indoors, regardless of vaccination status. Masks must be always worn while in our restaurants, except while eating and drinking. Thank you for understanding,” the restaurant’s own website states.
He’s not the only one
Washington D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser, the very person behind the mask mandate, was caught earlier this year violating the policy, according to an earlier report from the Examiner. Notably, that report documented her third violation of the mandate — and those are just the violations captured by the media and the public.
These violations come from the very same people who not only force your children to wear masks in the classroom, but are more than willing to punish and shame other Americans for not wearing masks when they’re supposed to.
It’s no wonder so many Americans have largely ignored the most recent rounds of mask mandates across the country.
