Only one thing has united D.C. residents as much as a national trophy from the Nats, Mystics or Caps. Covid-19.
This town has nearly unanimously hunkered down and obeyed the pandemic rules. Masks, social distancing, missing out on school, work, weddings, vacations, reunions, funerals and graduations have been the way of life in the nation’s capital for most of 2020.
Except at one address: 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. NW.
The White House has become a coronavirus hot spot. It’s our very own Wuhan on the Potomac.
Despite D.C.’s rules banning gatherings of more than 50 people, the White House has hosted more than one event larger than that, including the campaign rally masquerading as a Republican National Convention speech with more than 1,500 people on the South Lawn in August.
