Despite discouraging Americans from buying masks in March, numerous officials are now mandating mask-wearing.
In some cities and states, leaders are passing rules to force Americans to wear face coverings. Those who don’t might face penalties, including fines.
The mayor of D.C. appears to have gone farther than anyone else. She has instituted a $1,000 fine for anyone that doesn’t wear a mask in a public place.
And now, it looks like she is immediately trying to go after the president:
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 for compliance with city rules…
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.
According to reports, Donald Trump was in the Trump International Hotel this week. He was in the lobby, allegedly not wearing a face mask.
The media has accused Trump of poorly leading the country during the COVID panic. Some claimed he refused to wear a mask in a sign of defiance.
Yet photos have emerged since the Spring that show Trump wears face masks while in hospitals and other critical areas.
Recently, he posted a photo of himself wearing a mask, encouraging Americans to do so.
Many citizens balk at mandates requiring masks. After months of restrictions, lockdowns, and other bungled “action,” some people refuse to be pushed around by the government anymore.
They see mask mandates as another attempt by left-wing governments to control their lives.
When the Democrat mayor of D.C. issues a huge fine along with the rule, these Americans are only proven right.
Investigators who inspected the Trump Hotel found no signs of violations at the time. Although they might try to go after the president, it’s unlikely they will make any fines stick.
It is possible the first person to be hit with such a fine will battle it in court, forcing this issue to be taken up by the judicial branch of the government.
