    Default Hypocritical MSM - again

    So they are left and right applauding the protesters, and not a concern in the world about social distancing. But then they try to condemn Trump and the WH about seating arrangements and social distancing.

    Transparent scum.

    It was much more than just this idiot. Acosta was one too.

    CNN’s Cooper: Protesters Risking Getting COVID Because They ‘Urgently’ Want Change – Trump Ignored COVID Warnings at Presser

    On Friday’s broadcast of CNN’s “AC360,” host Anderson Cooper said that protesters are “putting themselves at greater risk” from coronavirus because “That is how urgently people want real and lasting change” and remarked on the White House not arranging its chairs for a press conference for social distancing by saying, “So much for all those warnings by Dr. Fauci and Dr. Birx and the Coronavirus Task Force.”

    Cooper said, “For 11 days now, we have been hearing the call for change in this country. It’s coming from the ground up, from people of all races and backgrounds and in the middle of a pandemic. Just think about that for a minute as you look at the live demonstrations on your screen. Not only are people risking their safety by speaking out and confronting police, which is something most people never do in their lives, they’re also putting themselves at greater risk from a virus that’s already killed 109,000 people in this country, a virus which is still here, still transmittable, still killing people all around the world. That is how urgently people want real and lasting change in the wake of George Floyd’s killing by police nearly two Mondays ago. It’s how badly they want an end to what has been a long-running and deadly injustice to African Americans in this country, and to redeem the country’s long-standing promise of equal justice under the law.”

    He later added that the chairs at the White House’s press conference earlier in the day were “deliberately not arranged for social distancing. Because, in the words of the deputy press secretary, it looks better. So much for all those warnings by Dr. Fauci and Dr. Birx and the Coronavirus Task Force. The president has clearly decided the virus is not a winning topic for him anymore.”

    "Transparent scum".

    Not a whole bunch left to say about THIS. If you can go out and protest, then FU on suddenly being worried about catching the Chinese flu at a press conference. Anyone THAT worried about catching the virus wouldn't be participating in either.
    My quota of bullshit cop outs from closed minds is full today, Tomorrow's not looking good for you either.

    More BS...

    If it's Ok for protesters and rioters to be out there, then sign a letter to lift all restrictions around the nation.

    ‘This Is A Sham’: Tucker Blasts Health Care Professionals Who Signed Letter Exempting George Floyd Protests From Coronavirus Restrictions

    Fox News host Tucker Carlson called out health care professionals who signed a letter saying one kind of demonstration should not violate coronavirus social distancing policies while other kinds should.

    During the Friday night “Tucker Carlson Tonight” segment, Carlson explained how, just a few weeks ago, Americans were told the ongoing “medical emergency” was “more important than your rights.”

    But now, more than 1,200 health professionals reportedly signed a letter claiming that ongoing protests and riots sparked by the death of George Floyd should be allowed to continue, and should not be “confused with a permissive stance on all gatherings, particularly protests against stay-home orders.”

    “Those actions not only oppose public health interventions, but are also rooted in white nationalism and run contrary to respect for Black lives,” the letter continued.

    Carlson accused them of “lying” about the necessity of severe lockdown restrictions in the first place.

    And just to add...

    Social Distancing, Social Justice, Science, And More. Here’s How Experts Keep Getting It Wrong

    • Experts have reversed advice on multiple topics in just the past week, including social distancing and social justice, the science of coronavirus treatment, and unemployment.
    • Public health officials urged Americans to social distance for months to slow the spread of COVID-19, but now some have said the public health risks of racism are more dangerous than those of the coronavirus pandemic.
    • Economists’ projections for the number of Americans unemployed during the month of May also proved wildly inaccurate.


    Americans have relied on experts to guide them and to provide factual, unbiased information throughout the coronavirus pandemic — but some experts have been proven wrong on multiple topics just this week.

    Social Distancing To Social Justice

    Public health officials have urged Americans to social distance from one another since the coronavirus pandemic began. Quarantines, social distancing orders, and lockdowns have kept Americans in their homes and away from friends and family.

    Those who suggested that social distancing orders may have gone too far were publicly shamed. In a viral Twitter thread, mother and commentator Bethany Mandel called for a return to normalcy and an end to months of indefinite lockdowns.

    “You can call me a Grandma killer,” Mandel tweeted May 6. “I’m not sacrificing my home, food on the table, all of our docs and dentists, every form of pleasure (museums, zoos, restaurants), all my kids’ teachers in order to make other people comfortable. If you want to stay locked down, do. I’m not.”

    Media and experts alike tore into Mandel for her comments, accusing her of being selfish, a “grandma killer,” and much more.

    “You’re a grandma killer yes. But you’re also a nurse killer, a doctor killer, a cop killer, a grocery clerk killer, a student killer, a 5 year old killer, a bus driver killer, a father killer who just had a child killer, a family killer,” tweeted CNN analyst Joe Lockhart. “Good people take care of their community.”

    A few weeks later, experts have begun condoning the crowds joining protests following the death of George Floyd. Some health officials going so far as to say that the public health risks of racism are more dangerous than those of the coronavirus pandemic.

    “We should always evaluate the risks and benefits of efforts to control the virus,” John Hopkins epidemiologist Jennifer Nuzzo tweeted Tuesday. “In this moment the public health risks of not protesting to demand an end to systemic racism greatly exceed the harms of the virus.”

    “While I have voiced concerns that protests risk creating more outbreaks, the status quo wasn’t going to stop #covid19 either,” he tweeted. “As much as this is a chapter in American racism, so too is it in the #covid19 response. It’s beyond time for us in public health to step up.”

    Atlantic staff writer Connor Friedersdorf called on public health experts to “strive to provide a neutral accounting of risk” in the Thursday story: “The Protesters Deserve the Truth About the Coronavirus.”

    “Public health experts who explicitly adopt an ideological double standard in talking points about the risk of spreading COVID19 at protests ill serve protesters themselves and undermine their credibility in ways that will do lasting damage,” Friedersdorf tweeted.

    How stupid. So life, liberty, freedom, rights and all that stuff wasn't enough to get beyond strict virus restrictions, but to go protest, riot or loot - that's important enough???

    Like I said, all of the lefties are hypocrites.

    Look at this woman. She institutes some of the harshest, and dumbest, restrictions in the nation due to the virus. She still has everything shut down and won't let people get back to work.

    But this is OK for HER. And she JUST labeled protesters of the virus to be terrorists!

    Her secretary, speaker or whatever claimed that she practiced social distancing while out.

    You just can’t make this up!
    Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer continues to prove herself to be the greatest hypocrite in the nation.

    Whitmer still has the state in lockdown and businesses shut down while she goes out and marches with Black Lives Matter protesters.

    But at the same time she is encouraging leftists to protest in the streets!

    I suspect the young folks out protesting weren’t the type to wear a mask in the first place.
