Closing Thought–20Sep21

I live in Mississippi and the Covid thing is running rampant……and our governor, Tate Reeve, has done little to protect the people of the state he rules….

CNN’s Jake Tapper interviewed the governor and handed the do-nothing politician his ass….

CNN’s Jake Tapper pressed the governor of Mississippi regarding the rate of Covid-19 infections and deaths in his state and what his administration was doing to address the most recent surge of the virus during an interview on State of the Union.

As the two talked on Sunday, Mr Tapper repeatedly questioned Mr Reeves about what specific measures beyond spreading messages of personal choice and responsibility the state of Mississippi was doing to protect its residents from the Delta variant of Covid-19, which is spreading rapidly in parts of the US, and in particular in communities where vaccination rates are low.

“If Mississippi were its own country, you would be second in the world only to Peru in terms of deaths per capita,” Mr Tapper told Mr Reeves, adding: “With all due respect, governor, your way is failing; are you going to try to change anything to change this horrible statistic from what you’re doing already?”

I applaud Tapper for bring the governor to task.

Mississippi is still suffering and there is NO leadership from the governor or the legislature.

Mississippi will continue to suffer with such ineffectual leadership.
