President Biden was seen on video not using a mask while walking in an elite restaurant in D.C. – breaking the city’s face mask rule.
The president and the first lady ate at the Michelin-ranked Fiola Mare restaurant this past Saturday night. The top-notch restaurant’s cuisine says its food is “inspired by Italian coastlines and pristine food.” The restaurant sells one ounce of caviar for $250.
Pictures and videos reveal Biden not using a mask while going through the restaurant.

There is a mask mandate for Washington, D.C. since July 31.
“This guidance gives recommendations that the overall public should follow for using face masks to aid in preventing the spread of coronavirus, and it also gives the rules that should be followed for using masks indoors, even for completely vaccinated people.”
“This includes any place of business open to the public (including: restaurants, grocery stores and bars (when not drinking or eating), gyms, libraries, office buildings, indoor entertainment venues.”
The Fiola Mare restaurant says on its website that they require masks.
“Per CDC guidance and the Mayor’s executive order, all people over age 2 are now required to wear a mask while indoors, regardless of their vaccination status. Masks should always be worn while in our restaurants, except while drinking or eating. Thank you for your understanding.”
The same day that DC’s mask mandate was put into effect, Washington Democrat Mayor Muriel Bowser broke her own mask mandate to go to a wedding at a four-star hotel.
Biden joins an increasing amount of Democrats who go against their own COVID-19 rules.
Democrats who broke their own covid-19 rules include California Governor Gavin Newsom, Rhode Island Governor Gina Raimondo, Austin Mayor Steve Adler, Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer, Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot, San Jose Mayor Sam Liccardo, San Francisco Mayor London Breed, Denver Mayor Michael Hancock, John Kerry, Senator Dianne Feinstein, and LA County supervisor Sheila Kuehl
When it comes to their own rules, Democrats are clearly not fully committed and now Biden has joined the list.
