Don’t let the English accent fool you this guy is a complete moron.

“Schools in our country should be opened ASAP. Much very good information now available,” Donald Trump tweeted on the eve of Memorial Day as the U.S. coronavirus death toll approached 100,000. He tagged both @FoxNews and host Steve Hilton because the “very good information” the president of the United States was receiving and passing onto the American people came directly from that Sunday night show on Fox.
“Get on with it and reopen schools now before you do even more needless damage!” Hilton urged on his broadcast shortly before Trump’s tweet. He proceeded to rail against “stupid regulations” like “totally pointless” temperature checks and “completely arbitrary social distancing rules.”
Here is what Trump tweeted after the show:

Trump has this dangerous habit of taking advice from unqualified people on cable TV.
Hilton is just a loudmouth political adviser from England, he has no special knowledge of economics or epidemiology and yet Trump takes his word over that of the scientists and medical professionals who serve on his very own Coronavirus task force.
Fortunately for the sake of our children very few educators are willing to do the same.
