Rake the hospital floors

Trump says

President Donald Trump on Thursday said “we are not closing our country” if the U.S. is hit by a second wave of coronavirus infections.

“People say that’s a very distinct possibility, it’s standard,” Trump said when asked about a second wave during a tour of a Ford factory in Michigan.

Oh it’s standard; well that’s ok then. By the same token, it’s standard for fire to burn, so we’re not going to evacuate the building if the alarm goes off. Just deal with it.

“We are going to put out the fires. We’re not going to close the country,” Trump said. “We can put out the fires. Whether it is an ember or a flame, we are going to put it out. But we are not closing our country.”

But we’re not going to put out the fires. We’re not putting them out now, with lockdown in place, so we’re sure as hell not going to be putting them out later if social distancing is abandoned. It’s not true that we can put out the fires; the fires are raging, and the death toll is over 90 thousand and rising.

Trump has previously said there may be “embers” of the pandemic that persist in the U.S. past the summer, but he maintains that they will be stamped out. Health experts, including those in the Trump administration, have said that the virus will likely continue to spread through the fall and winter, and may become even more difficult to combat once flu season begins.

They won’t be stamped out. He is such a moron. They won’t be stamped out because there is no treatment yet. They will burn and spread and leave a smoking desolation. This stupid greedy stupid man doesn’t know what he’s talking about.
