China Angry at Trump over Tweet
Imagine you are a country in which a new, deadly virus just came from.
Imagine it spread all over the world.
Imagine that it killed your own citizens, as well as others.
Now, imagine, after all that, saying you did a great job with it and others are now racist for saying it started in your country.
That’s what China is doing. After refusing U.S. help at the initial outbreak, then lying about it to the world to make the country look good, they are now trying to start an issue with Trump.
First, they blamed America for it.
Now, they are saying Trump is racist for calling it the Chinese Virus.
Even though it originated in China.
If you’re not aware, when a new disease comes out, it is named after the region it originated in. For example, Ebola is named as such because it came from an area near the Ebola River.
Why should China get special treatment?
Most diseases that came from Africa had the region attached to the name and China did not care. Why? Because Africa is poor, and therefore they don’t care about it.
But because China is a richer nation, they want special treatment? As if that matters in this case?
You gotta be kidding me.
Airlines, hit hard from the coronavirus, are now asking the government for help.
Industry group Airlines for America has announced it is seeking $50 billion from the government in the form of grants, loan guarantees and tax relief.
Airlines are asking for $25 billion in grants for passenger air carriers and $4 billion in grants to cargo carriers. They also want the same amounts in loans or loan guarantees.
They especially want this because there is no end in sight to the crisis we are facing.
Other airlines around the world are asking the same help from other governments.
The word is that it is being discussed by the government, but no answer has been given as of yet.
Migrants Ignore Italian Quarantine
Reports are coming in from Twitter users that migrants in Italy are breaking the quarantine rules, and putting others at risk with their actions.
As CNN reported “Only supermarkets and pharmacies windows are open. Only one person from each household can go on a shopping run. Police write tickets for people who are out wandering.”
However, this is not what people are seeing.
As one Twitter user reported, with video to back up the claims, “It’s been days in the Vasto neighborhood of #Napoli , migrants crowd alleys and sidewalks. They defy prohibitions, regardless of the risk. While we live barricaded in our homes, there are those who mock our health. The rules apply to everyone!”
The rules should apply to everyone. On that, they are absolutely correct.
‘Influencer’ Starts Dangerous Coronavirus Challenge
A so called ‘influencer’ has started a challenge that is somehow even dumber than the Tide Pod challenge (which we didn’t even think was possible).
It’s called the coronavirus challenge and involves licking a toilet seat (she did it on an airplane).
First, yes, we are serious. Second, eww.
Influencers are desperate for attention now that the entire world is focused on more pressing issues. This just proves the lengths they will go for likes from people they will never even know.
George Takei Needs to Stop
Actor and activist George Takei (who at one time had a really funny Facebook) has again put liberal “ideals” above common sense.
This time, he takes aim at Trump calling the coronavirus the “China Virus.” He asks his fans to report it to Twitter.
Report for what? For naming a virus the way every other virus is named.
You can’t make this stuff up.
