Are Kidding Me?

I have been a political watcher for many years and I thought I had seen everything stupid when Trump put in Spicer as Press Secretary……then he, Trump, install that Huckabee female……and then things got really weird when Trump gave the Press job to this one woman, Kayleigh McEnany, it pushed the dispensing of BS to a whole new level.

Her most recent piece to total moronic logic is the piece about the push to re-open schools.

White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany argued Thursday that “science is on the side” of President Trump’s push to fully reopen schools this fall. McEnany cited a study in JAMA Pediatrics that found “severe illness is less frequent” in child coronavirus patients. She said it showed that COVID-19 poses “far less” risk to children than seasonal flu, the Hill reports. “The science is on our side here, and we encourage for localities and states to just simply follow the science, open our schools.” McEnany said keeping schools closed is “very damaging,” because “there is a lack of reporting of abuse, there’s mental depressions that are not addressed, suicidal ideations that are not addressed when students are not in school.”

“Our schools are extremely important, they’re essential, and they must reopen,” she said. McEnany also said “the science should not stand in the way” of reopening, a remark which was reported out of context by numerous outlets and then retweeted by several Democratic lawmakers, leading the Washington Examiner to accuse the press of selectively editing McEnany’s remarks to “make her sound like a knuckle-dragging flat-earther.” CNN‘s Dr. Sanjay Gupta notes that while studies have consistently shown that the risk of children getting very sick from the coronavirus is relatively low, how much of a role they play in community transmission of the virus is still an “open question.”

She is a knuckle dragging flat-earther…..if she believes that “science should not stand in the way”.

There is NO one but a complete idiot that believes that the opening of schools will be safe.

In case anyone is interested…..3.6 million cases in the US and 139,000 deaths.

  1. All very well citing stats that most children only get a mild effect fro contracting the virus. But what about their parents and grandparents? As well as the risk to the teachers of course. Just more ‘expendables’ for the rich.
    I am sure that the kids with wealthy parents can have prvate tuition, or attend expensive schools with the funds to maintain proper distancing.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. Doug. Pete and I are having a time getting on your site…we both get security warning messages…..his is with Chrome and mine with Firefox…..did you know this? chuq

      1. Me too. Just started. Probably Russians. Thanks for the heads up. I’ll need to dive into this.

  2. As soon as you took us down memory lane, i had to dig up the SNL spicer cold open with Melissa McCarthy as Spicer (I forgot how freaking funny that was). But now when I look at this newest one, I can’t even imagine who would parody her on SNL right now. Not just because I forgot the cast (never watched much), but she already looks like somebody parodying the new blonde press secretary for SNL. She’s got this overanimated vibe to her that’s kinda weird to watch. I wonder if there’s gonna be a Melania tell all book where she mentions finding this chick and Dump in bed together some day… This one’s the blondest of the blondes so far.
