Our federal government is literally making a pandemic worse because their policies are determined by racism:
Stephen Miller, Jared Kushner and Donald Trump created *precisely* the infectious disease Petri dish they claimed to be avoiding. Unreal. https://t.co/fIfnYPRoCr— Chris Hayes (@chrislhayes) March 15, 2020
Other airports too. Good God. You could hardly invent a better scenario for superspreading events.
Any cases of COVID in these crowds will have a far higher chance of spreading to others in these lines than if they were just allowed in unchecked. https://t.co/VONae40vHU— Jeremy FLATTEN THE CURVE Konyndyk (@JeremyKonyndyk) March 15, 2020
These airport scenes are *infuriating*. A policy designed around propaganda rather than science and announced suddenly is now resulting in possibly exposing *thousands* of Americans to infection right before bringing them into the country. This is almost criminal malpractice.— Chris Hayes (@chrislhayes) March 15, 2020
I’m furious at Trump, Miller, and Kushner. I’m furious at Senate Republicans who allowed a spectacularly unfit president to remain in office. And I’m furious at every editor and reporter who covered the 2016 election like what was at stake was determining a 4th grade class president.
