A Tale Of Two Governors

On the one hand, in California there's Gavin Newsom:

Going out to eat with members of your household this weekend? Don't forget to keep your mask on in between bites. Do your part to keep those around you healthy.

On the other hand, there's Ron DeSantis in Florida:

Florida Gov: Champions of closing schools over COVID fears are ‘Flat-Earthers of Our Day’ 

Ron DeSantis called closing schools 'one of the biggest public health mistakes in modern American history'

Having trouble figuring out which is the sane one? This video of Laura Ingraham interviewing three of the world's leading epidemiologists may help:

The video runs about 12 minutes. It seems notable to me that for all Laura's criticism of Fauci she gets absolutely no pushback from these very eminent academicians. In fact, when--around the 9:00 mark and following--Laura weighs in on the school closing madness--

Dr. Gupta, I gotta tell ya, what's happening to the kids will go down as one of the most outrageous abuses of supposed science that we've ever seen, I'd say, in the last 50 years. Children are being kept from school? With a 99.979 survival rate for anyone under the age of 19? It's insanity! 

--she gets nothing but agreement. In fact, one of the doctors goes so far as to state that Trump's personal example is exactly what we should be doing as a nation. And yet if you listen to Progs it's conservatives who are somehow "anti-science."


  1. Newsom is a nutter. Even Democrats have to be seeing that. This native Californian loves it when he goes off the rails like this. He is an excellent example of their party leaving many Democrats.
