In his latest anti-science appeal to Americans, White House coronavirus adviser Dr. Scott Atlas on Monday night called on families to ignore the guidance of public health experts who say the holiday season should not include indoor gatherings—suggesting to Fox News that families should take the risk even for elderly or sick relatives this Thanksgiving because they will no longer be alive next year.
“This kind of isolation is one of the unspoken tragedies of the elderly who are now being told, ‘Don’t see your family at Thanksgiving,'” Atlas, who has no public health expertise, told Fox host Martha MacCallum. “For many people this is their final Thanksgiving, believe it or not. What are we doing here?”
Keep in mind this is the lunatic who has Trump’s ear concerning dealing with this pandemic right now.
Just for the record folks, the actual medical experts are telling us to stay home for Thanksgiving or have very small gatherings with people who you are convinced have been following proper protocols and are covid-19 free.
I don’t know about anybody else but even if this might be my grandparent’s last year, I would certainly not want to be the one responsible for their death.
Stay home! Perhaps then you might have many more Thanksgivings to celebrate together.
