You First, Buddy

(H/T Scissorhead Skinny-D)

Let’s meet Trey Hollingworth (R – IN) who is telling us that it’s time to shove gramma into the jaws of death, like a common Dan Patrick:

WASHINGTON–We have to get Americans back to work, says Indiana Representative Trey Hollingsworth (R-IN-9).

Hollingsworth was asked about the federal government’s response to the coronavirus Tuesday morning by 93 WIBC’s Tony Katz.

“There is no zero harm choice here. We are going to have look Americans in the eye and say ‘we are making the best decisions for the most Americans possible’ and the answer to that to get Americans back to work, to get Americans back to their businesses,” Hollingsworth said.

Hollingsworth says he understands and appreciates what scientists are saying about the impact of the coronavirus.

“But certainly the social scientists are telling us about the economic disaster that is going on. Our GDP is supposed to be down 20% alone this quarter. It is policymakers’ decision to put on our big boy and big girl pants and say it is the lesser of these two evils. It is not zero evil, but it is the lesser of these two evils and we intend to move forward that direction. That is our responsibility and to abdicate that is to insult the Americans that voted us into office,” Hollingsworth said.

We note that Hollingsworth, who is 39 and in good health, did not volunteer which member of his own family he’d bump-off with the ol’ Trump Virus, but we assume that he has already done the cost-benefit analysis.

    Someone should ask him directly if he’s willing to give up his life for the economy?

    Well, then I presume he’s got plenty of good tests, and vaccine in the same place from where he’s pulling these comments? Because though you can fool some people some of the time, everyone’d have to be completely stupid to “return to normal and get back to work” without those things in place.

  4. I vote we make it a rule that no one with a roman fucking numeral after their name gets to open their upper class twit gob in public.

    His name isn’t “Trey”, it’s Joseph Albert Hollingsworth III, and he’s a wealthy failson who like other wealthy failsons we know, was born on third base and thought he hit a triple. Going by ‘Trey’ is just the douche cherry on top of the rich douche sundae he is.

    I was looking for info on Trey’s background and learned that he is also a carpet bagger from the south whose daddy set him up. Not only is he not from Indiana, but the young hound lived there for less than a year before running for office, which was paid for by Daddy Big Bucks. Of course.

    Everything about him is Trumpian in the extreme, though I’m not sure if he has bankrupted any casinos. Yet.

    This entitled turd head is the poster boy for what’s wrong with; well, just about all our ills. What needs to happen is that this entire house of cards completely collapses. Maybe then and I’m not entirely sure it can happen is that we finally get these idiots to realize that public health is a national security issue.

    We can’t have a booming economy on a barely getting by workforce without good incomes and good health. The economy is supported by the people, not the other way around.
