First lady Melania Trump wanted to spread some seasonal cheer to sick children on Tuesday when she visited the Children's National Hospital.
CNN reports she continued her annual tradition of visiting them, despite the coronavirus pandemic and record cases in Washington, DC.
However, Mrs. Trump also broke the hospital's stated mask policy when she removed her mask to read a holiday book to children.
While she arrived in the hospital's main atrium wearing a mask, she removed it when she took her seat in front of a tree.
She did practice social distancing. However, the hospital's policy specifically requires all visitors to wear a mask.
