Roll over Doug Feith and tell Rick Perry the news, I have found the fucking stupidest guy on the face of the Earth, and he’s in charge federal response to a deadly pandemic:
On Monday, Atlas stretched one bad idea into a two-day streak in an interview with Fox News. Speaking with news anchor Martha MacCallum, Atlas posited his belief that state-level lockdowns actually increased the current number COVID infections, despite clear evidence that proper restrictions help reduce the spread of a virus which has killed almost 250,000 Americans. “Because we had states that were restricting businesses, restricting activities,” he explained, “we forced cases to be building up in this season when you cannot social distance.” Next, Atlas suggested — in reference to the tragic effects of isolation on the nation’s elderly — that it’s acceptable to potentially place their lives at risk by holding large gatherings because “for many people, this is their final Thanksgiving.”
Indeed. Indeed it will be.
I can’t believe we have more than two months of these people in charge.
