Even as the country has largely hunkered down, some powerful people in Washington have defied preventative measures aimed at curbing the spread of the contagious coronavirus. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo flew to Afghanistan to push the U.S. peace deal with the Taliban even though the State Department has advised against international travel. Sen. Rand Paul was at the Capitol over the weekend as he awaited the results of a test that came back positive. President Donald Trump continued shaking hands even after experts warned against it. It’s a “do as I say, not as I do” ethos.
