Governors across the country—on the recommendations of health experts—Americans to stay inside at all times with the exception for necessary errands, and to maintain a distance of six feet apart from others when in public.
The President's eldest daughter and advisor Ivanka Trump echoed these orders in a video posted online at the end of last month.
Ivanka said in the video:
"Those lucky enough to be in a position to stay at home, please please do so. Each and everyone of us plays a role in slowing the spread, and social distancing saves lives. It has saved lives and it will continue to save lives."
Acknowledging the importance of complying with these stay-at-home orders, Americans forewent their typical holiday celebrations, such as Passover and Easter. Jewish Americans across the country adapted their Passover Seders to be virtually spent with family thanks to apps like Zoom.
According to a recent New York Times report, that wasn't good enough for Ivanka.
She and her husband Jared Kushner traveled with their three children across state lines from D.C. to New Jersey, where they spent the first night of Passover at Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster.
It was yet another case of the Trump family expecting Americans to do as they say, not what they do.
People hadn't forgotten the video Ivanka had posted urging Americans to stay home.
Both Ivanka and Jared will serve on the White House council tasked with formulating a plan to reopen the economy—something President Donald Trump is chomping at the bit to do, as experts warn that reopening the economy too soon could result in a resurgence of the virus and an even longer period of unrest.
If Jared and Ivanka's holiday travel is any indication of how seriously they take the virus, we should be extremely concerned.
