MARIETTA, Ga. — White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows hosted a large wedding for his daughter that appeared to violate a Georgia order and city of Atlanta guidelines to stop the spread of COVID-19, a newspaper reported Thursday.

Photos of the event show many of the guests crowding together, dancing and hugging during the May 31 nuptials at the Biltmore Ballrooms Atlanta, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.

About 70 guests, including U.S. Rep. Jim Jordan of Ohio, wore tuxedos and ball gowns but no masks at the indoor wedding, and photographs show groups of people clustered closely together in the same room throughout the evening, the newspaper said.

Gov. Brian Kemp’s orders at the time banned gatherings of more than 10 people. The governor later loosened

Atlanta wedding hosted by top Trump aide violated city’s curfew

Just days earlier, Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms had instituted the curfew to maintain order, and emergency alerts pinged cellphones across the city warning residents to “please stay home.”

That wasn’t an option for Michael Ward. He and his brother Ted worked as caterers for the upscale event, which attracted more than 70 guests who gathered — not wearing masks or practicing social distancing — at the upscale venue. Both said attendees left well after 9 p.m.

White House chief of staff Mark Meadows held a wedding for his daughter on May 31 at the Biltmore Ballrooms in Atlanta. About 70 guests attended the wedding, even though the event occurred while a statewide order was in place limiting gatherings to no more than 10 people to stem the spread of the lethal coronavirus. The celebration also lasted beyond a 9 p.m. curfew that the city of Atlanta had put

Biden slams Trump ‘throughline’ from rhetoric to Whitmer’s ISIS-style kidnap plot

Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden compared the foiled kidnap plot against Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer to an Islamic State terrorist attack, blaming President Trump for implicitly encouraging it.

“There is a throughline from President Trump’s dog whistles and tolerance of hate, vengeance, and lawlessness to plots such as this one. He is giving oxygen to the bigotry and hate we see on the march in our country,” Biden said Thursday.

The two-term vice president and 36-year Delaware senator referenced Trump’s tweets from the spring, when he urged supporters to “LIBERATE MICHIGAN!” after Whitmer imposed strict, unpopular lockdown measures at the start of the coronavirus pandemic.

“When protesters with swastikas and Confederate flags, nooses, and assault rifles descended on Michigan’s capitol echoing the president’s own refrain to ‘lock her up,’ President Trump called them ‘very good people,'” he said, comparing Trump’s comments to those he

Mark Meadows is yet to comment on the reports

White House chief of staff Mark Meadows threw a large wedding for his daughter in May, amid a ban on gatherings of more than 10 people, US media report.

The wedding took place in Atlanta, Georgia, on 31 May and some 70 guests attended, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution first reported.

Photos of the event show a large number of people socialising in close proximity, with nobody wearing masks.

The president of the event manager said it had complied with guidelines.

Myrna Antar, of Novare Events, said the company had met Georgia Governor Brian Kemp’s order that allowed 10 people per 300 sq ft (28 sq m).

“And while we do not comment on client’s events, we can confirm that the entire 16,000 sq ft of the space was reserved for this small wedding – greatly exceeding the per person square

Top Trump Aide Mark Meadows Held Mask-Less Wedding for His Daughter amid COVID Restrictions: Report

White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows

White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows hosted a wedding for his daughter in Atlanta in late May, with about 70 mask-less guests in attendance, despite local officials urging against such gatherings to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus, according to a new report by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

The previously undisclosed event underlines the extent to which the Trump administration has resisted following the basic public health tips intended to avoid infection.

The Meadows family wedding, as reported, also fueled criticism that the president’s team has ignored the guidelines numerous others had to follow.

The contagious and deadly virus, which Donald Trump has downplayed to the public, reached the Oval Office in recent days — infecting both the president and First Lady Melania Trump as well as various senior advisers, campaign staff and others.

Mike Pence’s Vice Presidential Debate Lecture to Kamala Harris Isn’t Likely to Help Trump With Women

Even before Wednesday night’s slow-boil of a vice presidential debate in Salt Lake City, the re-election bid of President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence was in trouble with the one demographic on which elections hinge: women.

Then, with condescension and contempt, Pence sat with Sen. Kamala Harris of California, the first woman of color to be on a major presidential ticket, and lectured and side-stepped. When moderator Susan Page of USA Today declared that the debate would be civil, Pence visibly smirked. He knew better.

“Sen. Harris, it’s a privilege to be on this stage with you,” Pence said as the evening started. He later praised her history-making candidacy and thanked her for her public service. It was a veneer of respect that he didn’t necessarily practice during the debate. Repeatedly, he refused to heed time limits or even answer the question being asked. (To be sure, dodging

Was a Hollywood-Style Trump Sign Erected in Los Angeles?

In October 2020, reports and social media posts emerged claiming that someone had erected a large “TRUMP” sign over Interstate 405 in Los Angeles. Newsweek, for example, reported that:

Large letters in the style of the iconic Hollywood sign reading “TRUMP” were found on Los Angeles’ 405 Freeway on Tuesday morning. Los Angeles CBS Local reported that the letters were installed sometime between late Monday night and Tuesday morning on the southbound side of the Freeway in Sepulveda Pass. The giant letters appeared to use the iconic typeface from the “SF Hollywood Hills” font family, making it blend into the hilly setting seamlessly.

Such reports were accurate. Local television channel KTLA posted its own, authentic aerial footage of the sign as it appeared on Oct. 6, clearly showing its location on a hillside overlooking a stretch of I-405 at the Sepulveda Pass, around 25 miles west of downtown Los Angeles:

Actress Jane Fonda called coronavirus “God’s gift to the left” because it allowed Americans to see President Trump isn’t helping the working class.

The far-left star was busy urging Americans to vote for Democratic nominee Joe Biden and said the upcoming election is a crossroads for the nation.

“We are people who can help determine which way humanity goes. What a great gift, what a tremendous opportunity, we’re just so lucky, we just have to use it with every ounce of intelligence and courage and wherewithal we have,” Fonda said in a video published online.

“I just think COVID is God’s gift to the left,” Fonda continued. “That’s a terrible thing to say. I think it was a very difficult thing to send down to us, but it has ripped the Band-Aid off who [Trump] is and what he stands for and
