This long story in Tiger Beat on the Potomac (thanks Charlie!) makes it clear that GOPer don’t give a merde about CDC guidelines:
It’s not just the White House flouting pandemic rules to mark this town’s schmooziest season.
Some corners of the GOP, including members of Congress, are refusing to let the coronavirus intrude on their holiday gatherings and in-person fundraisers — whether it’s on the slopes of Utah or in the steakhouses of Washington.
Meanwhile, discussions are underway about holding the Conservative Political Action Conference — a massive, yearly affair — in person early next year, according to multiple sources.
In other words, the Republicans are going to create another wave of the Trump-Virus pandemic.
The event planning comes as the nation is battered by another brutal surge in coronavirus cases, prompting a fresh round of warnings from public health experts to hunker down and avoid group settings, particularly indoors. And it underscores the resistance by many in the GOP, led by President Donald Trump, to adjust to the new normal of the pandemic.
They wants their Precioussss.
“It’s an honor to be invited to the White House for anything. It’s special and to see the decorations,” said pro-Trump commentator Harlan Hill. “I think it’s important that we go show that we support the president and that our support hasn’t wavered through the election fraud scandal.” He added that the White House is “taking all appropriate precautions” to keep people safe.
Another person who plans to attend one of the Christmas bashes at the White House added: “Why wouldn’t we? A lot of these things are going to be appropriately scaled and take proper precautions. But it doesn’t cancel the season.”
It’s all about the selfishness.
