In all fairness, it was shocking to see members of Congress while the Capitol was besieged by a deadly crowd of thugs who refused to wear a mask while in safe locations. I’m so proud of my Congresswoman Lisa Blunt Rochester here in Delaware, who tries to hand out masks while people huddled on the floor and Republican colleagues refused to put them on. What the hell is wrong with them? It’s time to grow up.
The result? So far, at least four members of Congress, including a cancer survivor, have Covid-19 in these rooms. For God’s sake, wear a mask, if not for yourself, for your loved ones, for your country. These are real matters of life and death. We need you to stick with hand washing and social distancing and avoid indoor gatherings with people outside of your own household.
It’s comforting to hear how the soon-to-be president sounds like an adult. Biden didn’t take responsibility, blame or complain. He sets a good example at the top, and that is exactly what a president should do for his country.
Republicans are facing quite a culture shock, and they don’t want to put their country first. You should be ready to be called by the President of the United States.
