A crowded Rose Garden ceremony

That party last Saturday for the religious fanatic nominated to fill Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s place appears to have been a super-spreader event.

A crowded Rose Garden ceremony last Saturday at which Donald Trump announced Amy Coney Barrett as his supreme court nominee has come under scrutiny after at least seven figures in attendance tested positive for coronavirus, including the president himself.

On Friday, the president’s former counsellor, Kellyanne Conway, announced she had tested positive and had “mild” symptoms. Two Republican senators, Thom Tillis and Mike Lee, also announced they have also tested positive.

Both senators say they will quarantine for ten days…which is interesting because it should be for fourteen days, and the confirmation hearings begin…just as they stop quarantining.
