[Trump’s] comments are getting perilously close to urging Americans to ignore doctors and scientists, all of whom seem to be saying we need these drastic measures until the virus subsides. The irony, of course, is if Trump gets his way, we’ll clearly have way more deaths than if we were isolated from each other … and what does he think will happen to the economy then?
…The Lt. Gov. of Texas says to hell with social distancing, because old folks should risk death by COVID-19, so the economy can start recovering.
…That would seem to be an odd time to stop doing what every scientist says will prevent the virus from spreading and killing more people.
