Softball question: Who would you rather have in charge of the nation during a potential crisis like a worldwide disease pandemic? Because one of the choices right now is a party that believes that men can turn into women through the magical power of wishing, that we’re all going to die in 12 years from the weather, and that murderous dictator Fidel Castro implemented a fantastic literacy program. Personally, I’d rather have a Big Mac president running the country, rather than a Bat Soup president.
The good news is, we don’t have a Bat Soup president in office right now as the Coronavirus has broken containment.
President Trump delivered a great address to the nation this week on the US response to Coronavirus. He was calm, cool, collected, reassuring – a solid leader. You might not have gotten that impression if you watched the Coronavirus address on CNN. They cut away from the President of the United States talking about a potential deadly viral outbreak for a town hall with a Democrat candidate for president who has never risen above fourth place in any national poll. Fake news garbage people.
During the Coronavirus address, President Trump hit on a lot of points that I’ve already talked about. For example, he noted that the flu kills way more people on an annual basis, just in the United States, than Coronavirus has killed worldwide in this outbreak (we lost 80,000 Americans to the flu in the winter of 2017-18).
Also, Trump reiterated that this outbreak will soon pass. Covid-19 or whatever they’re calling it will not become a permanent fixture in our lives anymore than SARS, Ebola, or Swine Flu did.
The president has placed Vice President Mike Pence in charge of the disease response. He’s a great choice. Pence has leadership experience in dealing with infectious disease from his time as Governor of Illinois. As a Christian, we know he is a genuinely compassionate man who will do the right thing and if needed, make tough decisions to protect the American people. (He’s also got to be thinking about 2024 and know this is his chance to get out from behind Trump’s shadow and show the American people he can lead.)
Compare that to the Democrats, who immediately attacked President Trump as a racist when he shut down flights from China. Liberals and Never Trumpers would rather see Americans die from an infectious disease than lose a chance to take a cheap shot at President Trump.
In response to Trump’s travel restrictions against China, Joe Biden declared, “This is no time for Donald Trump’s record of hysteria and xenophobia — hysterical xenophobia — and fear mongering to lead the way instead of science.” (Yeah, let’s put that guy in charge of the country.)
Authorities are still not acknowledging the recent medical findings that there is a racial/genetic component to the Coronavirus. The bug attaches to ACE2 receptors, an enzyme that is mainly concentrated in the lungs and mucosal membranes. East Asians, such as Chinese and Vietnamese, have much higher concentrations of ACE2 receptors in their lungs, so Coronavirus is terrible for them. The more genetic distance a person has from being Chinese or East Asian, the less likely they are to catch Coronavirus and the less likely they are to die from it.
People with weak immune systems are also more susceptible to it, obviously. For example, all the Coronavirus deaths in Italy happened in a hospital, and every victim was over age 60; two of them were cancer patients.
Coronavirus also seems to be spreading from contact with fecal matter, which is another reason why (most) Americans shouldn’t be too worried about it (unless you live in homelessness havens Los Angeles or San Francisco that is). Become a religious zealot about washing your hands after you use the toilet, and you and your loved ones will be safer for it. This is yet another reason why the virus is rampaging through China.
If you divided the world up into Good Toilet countries and Bad Toilet countries, China would rank as a Very Bad Toilet country. China has rudimentary toilets, to put it politely, and they do not have a culture that values handwashing with soap and hot water after you do your business. That’s not racism, it’s just cultural awareness, folks.
The fecal spread of the disease is also why the Most Disgusting and Vile City on Earth has declared a State of Emergency already, despite not having any confirmed cases of Coronavirus yet. San Francisco is the feces capital of Planet Earth.
The city is so disgusting and dirty that you can taste the air. Our family drove across the bridge from Oakland into San Francisco in 2016 and we couldn’t get the truck turned around fast enough. We could feel the feces in the air congealing on our teeth. The kids were all crying as I scrambled to find an escape hatch out of San Fran. If we had had a canary in the truck, it probably would have died before we made it out. San Francisco officials admitted earlier this week their feces lined streets and violent homeless population make them a prime target for the spread of Coronavirus. They declared a state of emergency and have asked the state for money and help.
The really good news, though, is that President Trump is on top of it. He’s calm and in charge, and has government performing one of its only legitimate functions: Protecting the people.
