Think about if three Republican lawmakers who fled a state, flying maskless in a non-public jet relatively than vote on a invoice they didn’t like, caught COVID. And so they met with a Republican vp who then refused to even be examined for the virus.
The media would lose their minds. Reckless lawmakers subverting democracy, spreading the Delta variant, and an administration attempting to cover the reality!
After all, you don’t must think about the state of affairs. Three Texas lawmakers did flee the state, did come down with COVID, did meet with Vice President Kamala Harris, and she or he refuses to get examined. However as a result of there are “Ds” subsequent to their names, there’s barely an outcry.
However they’re all vaccinated, you say. True. Which implies they in all probability will exhibit few signs and be simply nice.
The issue, because it has been this complete pandemic, is the hypocrisy. Just like the George Floyd protesters final yr, it’s OK for the liberal lawmakers to fly in a superspreader flight — as a result of their trigger is simply. In the meantime, in California, Los Angeles County is making everybody — vaccinated or not — masks once more. Mayor Invoice de Blasio has ordered the colleges utterly masked, regardless that everybody over 12 can get the vaccine.
How about a bit of frequent sense? Flare-ups among the many vaccinated should not an enormous deal, as this incident exhibits. They need to be handled that means.
In the meantime, Harris must observe the protocols similar to everybody else. Get examined, and see if she’s spreading the virus even when she’s not affected by it.
President Joe Biden is blaming everybody — Fb, ex-Prez Donald Trump, the GOP — for his failure to hit his vaccination targets. Maybe he ought to check out Democratic hypocrisy.
