Prznint Stupid has canceled the Jacksonville, Floriduh portions of the GOP convention, knowing no one would show up citing the importance of keeping people safe. Trump said he would deliver a campaign speech in a different form. We’re hoping for interpretive dance.
“I looked at my team, and I said the timing for this event is not right, just not right with what’s happened recently. The flare-up in Florida to have a big convention is not the right time. It’s really something that for me, I have to protect the American people. That’s what I’ve always done. That’s what I always will do. That’s what I’m about.”
And Eiron, the Goddess of Irony, blushed. You don’t have to be a goddess to know that what really drove Prznint Stupid’s decision is that the optics of being nominated at an unattended convention with what few attendees present are distanced and wearing masks was untenable. Presumably there was also some concern that it would be a super-spreader event, but I’m convinced Lord Damp Nut was more worried about being exposed hisself, like some common cafeteria worker.
A pair of cafeterias regularly used by White House staff members were closed this week after a person tested positive for COVID-19, the disease caused by the novel coronavirus, a Government Services Administration spokesperson told The Hill…
The White House performed contact tracing and determined that the risk of transmission was low, the spokesperson said.
We note that the 4th Reich has pushed to block money for testing and tracing from being included in the next coronavirus relief package. Goose/Gander, rinse and repeat.
But good news! The CDC has changed their guidelines to encourage schools to open per normal, so you know, too dangerous for The 4th Reich’s convention and full-steam ahead for infecting children and teachers. We note that Barron Trump’s school will not re-open. How convenient.
Meanwhile, the number of Trump-Virus cases in the U.S. passed four million on Thursday.
We went from three million confirmed infections to four million in just 16 days.
The average number of new cases is now rising by about 2,600 every hour, the highest rate in the world, which is American Exceptionalism right there, baby.
