Closing Thought–17Dec20

For almost 4 years we have heard/read the most horrific news daily……and at times you would think you had heard/read it all from these worthless leaders….and then more becomes clear.

In the closing days of the Trump circus years…..we have heard it all about his technique for handling the pandemic as it ravages the country and world…..we find one of his silly gutless minions that is a worse person then the ex-president…..the former adviser to the Health and Human Services Department….

A top Trump appointee argued this summer that “infants” and “kids” should be infected with COVID-19, CNBC reports. In a July 4 email brought to light by a House subcommittee, former Health and Human services advisor Paul Alexander wrote to senior officials that Washington should let “non-high risk groups expose themselves to the virus. Infants, kids, teens, young people, young adults, middle aged with no conditions etc. have zero to little risk … so we use them to develop herd.” He added that “we want them infected … and recovered … with antibodies.” A few weeks later, Alexander suggested that “it may be best” to “open up and flood the zone and let the kids and young folk get infected” while protecting “the elderly and at risk folks” in order to attain “natural immunity.”

Alexander was forced out after Trump ally Michael Caputo, who headed HHS public affairs, left his post in September. Now their alleged meddling at HHS has raised eyebrows at the House coronavirus subcommittee. The emails “show a pernicious pattern of political interference by Administration officials,” said Rep. Jim Clyburn, who chairs the watchdog committee, per Politico. “As the virus spread through the country, these officials callously wrote, ‘who cares’ and ‘we want them infected.'” Trump officials have long denied considering herd immunity, but Kyle McGowan, ex-CDC chief of staff, said Alexander often delayed the agency’s weekly reports or cut back on its advice. “He absolutely put pressure on the CDC on different guidance documents,” McGowan said.

Sounds about right for this current White House….using stupidity to fight a killer virus.

  1. Hey, it’s me David Graycat. Yeah, I got yet another account. I loved how people are like, “But what about Swine Flu and Ebola?” None of that got worse under Obama. It’s like anything about Obamy that’s positive for these people goes down the memory hole.

    Obama was great for white despite being a black president. This is like the most fricking retarded (I can use that word I am disabled) people in the country have now somehow hijacked the Republican Party.

    I mean all my favorite conspiracy sites are now full of Islamophobia and Flat Eartherism and other stupid crap.

    How the heck did this happen?

    Has the world lost its collective mind?

  2. When we all marvel at what absolute selfish morons so many of our fellow citizens are we need look no further than Trump and his minions. I’m firmly convinced that while the pandemic would have taken a toll no matter who was president, especially in the first few months, it wouldn’t have been nearly as bad. 300,000+ dead, with over 3,000 a day dying now. I don’t know if I want to scream, cry, or start breaking things!
