(h/t Miss Cellania).
A couple of items weirder than normal, and ghastly, too. Our life scenario seems to be edging in a general direction for a horrible situation-event to explode (even worse than right now), as per this account from The Washington Post this afternoon:
The White House is seeking revisions to a document drafted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that offers detailed advice to local leaders on how to reopen public places after determining that it was “overly specific,” according to a coronavirus task force official.
The official responded to an Associated Press report that the 17-page document had been shelved by the administration.
Meanwhile, a U.S. military member who works on the White House campus has tested positive for the coronavirus, though both President Trump and Vice President Pence have since tested negative.
“I’ve had very little contact with this person,” Trump said.
Additional shit via NPR, also this afternoon:
The Associated Press first reported on the task force decision to shelve the detailed guidance.
Copies obtained and published by the AP, The New York Times and The Washington Post revealed detailed, staged directions for child care centers, schools, camps, restaurants and bars, churches and mass transit providers about how to safely resume operations.
“I think many people would argue that it is not the role of the federal government to tell specific entities — whether they be schools or churches or businesses — how they should go about doing things because the nation is so diverse,” one of the administration officials said.
Idiot! There’s nothing the fuck to do with fucking ‘diverse.’ This is a major ‘health‘ issue dip-shit, for everybody.
It starts at the top, though, and worms downward. The T-Rump is such a lazy-ass prick, the people around have to be in some degree just like him. Or close enough to handle the continuous, cruel nastiness.
Face masks and the T-Rump — add to the fire of dumb-shit pathology (New York Magazine):
A member of the U.S. military who works in the White House has tested positive of the coronavirus, the White House acknowledged Thursday.
According to multiple reports, the person is one of President Trump’s personal valets.
“We were recently notified by the White House Medical Unit that a member of the United States Military, who works on the White House campus, has tested positive for coronavirus,” deputy White House press secretary Hogan Gidley said in a statement.
Gidley added that Trump and Vice-President Mike Pence were tested for the conrovniaus after the valet’s positive test became known.
“They remain in great health,” Gidley said.
CNN first reported the positive test, and noted that Trump was “upset” when he learned of the positive test.
NBC News provided more context on how the valet interacts with the president, reporting that the valet serves Trump his meals, among other duties.
Valets do not wear masks, the reports added.
I wonder if the T-Rump can catch the virus, or is he immune due to his physical/mental make-up of really-bad shit. The guy served him meals, drinks and whatnot, T-Rump knew him, Whenever the festered shit gets caught in something, or someone’s been indicted, or arrested — T-Rump always tosses-out in varying words, “I barely know him”
Don’t really want to, but Pinball done already did: ‘“I don’t know how to tell ya this, Cyrus, but we are three white guys short. Or as they say in Ebonics, ‘We be fucked.'”‘
