Melania Trump breaks children’s hospital rules by taking her mask off tos read to patient

There were just two young patients present to watch her reading. Riley Whitney, six, and Sophia Martinez, eight, were seated on the floor in front of her while most of the other hospitalized children watched the reading in their rooms from a live stream.

Both youngsters were seated six feet away from one another — and from Melania — however, the First Lady still faced backlash online for seemingly violating hospital policy by removing her face mask when she sat down to read.
