DC Mayor Ignores Own Imminent Mask Regulations

One rule for politicians, another for you.

Showing DC residents how much she values her own judgment, DC Mayor Muriel Bowser decided to party it up without a mask just hours before she mandated all citizens of the city don a mask again. Such shining integrity. Such as leading by example.


We’ve seen this before. Newsom, Cuomo, Whitmer, have all flouted mask regulations they have imposed on citizens of their states. Given the latest cues from the feds, many Democrat cities have reimposed mask requirements. They won’t let a good crisis go to waste less than a year before an election cycle.

FNC: Photos on social media appear to show Washington, D.C., Mayor Muriel Bowser celebrating her upcoming birthday and posing for photos maskless with comedian Dave Chappelle hours before the city’s mask mandate was put into effect. Bowser announced a mask mandate in the city on Thursday, saying all residents would be required to mask up beginning Saturday at 5 a.m.

Her office did not immediately respond to Fox News’s request for comment on the photos or whether the mask mandate was put into effect Saturday so she could celebrate her birthday on Friday. Bowser had also touted that Chappelle, a D.C. native, would be in the city this weekend, including at a show at the Anthem on Friday.

‘When your asked to Dj for the Mayor!!! Happy Birthday @mayor_bowser,” a caption on an Instagram post published by user Jeffrey Mercer Friday night says, accompanied by photos of Bowser and Chappelle attending a party. Bowser’s birthday is on Monday. Bowser was previously criticized for breaking her own coronavirus restrictions in November to attend President Biden’s election victory speech in Delaware, which was considered a ‘high risk’ coronavirus state at the time. Her staff, however, defended the trip and said it was ‘essential travel.’ ”

Do you think President Biden should be impeached for the crisis in Afghanistan and loss of American lives?

“DC is open and we are so proud to welcome home Dave Chappelle,” Bowser said in a press release on Friday. “Washingtonians have waited months to be able to enjoy shows like this one again, and it makes it even sweeter to be able to reopen one of our favorite venues with a performance from one of the world’s most beloved comedians and a DC native, Dave Chappelle.” And to do it the night before regular people have to mask again? Priceless.
