Critical thinking Essential!
To be clear. President Trump hasn't shut a single business. The Governors did."

"We are seeing the most draconian measures ENFORCED at some STATE & LOCAL LEVELS of government that we've ever seen in our lifetimes, and yet, rather than being alarmed by the things going on, so many of you applaud.

President Trump's guidelines are VOLUNTARY & TEMPORARY but some Democrat states & cities are taking it one step further, extending the lockdown and CRIMINALIZING behavior. Bill Gates wants to keep America locked down for 10 months! THAT'S WHAT LIVING UNDER A COMMUNIST REGIME LOOKS LIKE, AND YOU APPLAUD.

Your boy wanted to let COVID-19 "wash over" the country. Let that sink in for a moment. Your Grandma or Grandpa, probably dead for lack of a hospital bed. Your sister who's a Nurse, probably sick, fighting through it on her own but taking her out of the hospital to assist those who need it. Doctors in major shortage because they're overwhelmed and getting sick. So, I suggest you GTFOH with your Communist regime bullshit and all that other crap you just posted. The only thing Communist/Authoritarian about this whole cluster fuck is how our idiot in Chief continued to downplay it as it blew up overseas and began to ramp up on our shores. Let the adults handle this because there's none in the WH.
