At a time when many couples are being forced to postpone their weddings to abide by state guidelines banning large gatherings and out of concern for their elderly relatives being exposed to the coronavirus, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported that White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows threw a “lavish” wedding party for his daughter in Atlanta.
The wedding was held in spite of the governor of Georgia’s executive order which required people in gathering in groups of 10 to maintaining six feet of distance at all times. The Constitution also reported that the event violated a mayorally issued 9 p.m. curfew.
