Last week, the Left was all over the president for naming Mike Pence to head up a White House Coronavirus Taskforce. A non-expert, they protested, should not be assigned this awesome responsibility — especially not a devout Christian, who will probably reject modern medicine for prayers.
What was really needed, Democrats decided, were spokespeople who understood science. Spokespeople like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who recently boasted having taken second place honors in a high school science fair. Here she is addressing the media on common-sense steps for avoiding spread of the deadly virus. And what steps does she advocate, apart from washing your hands regularly, which she concedes is “banal” [sic]? Touching your face. As you watch, count the number of times she brings her hand up to her face to brush her hair out of it.
Bajillionaire “scientist” Mike Bloomberg went much further. Bloomberg, who New Yorkers will recall, tried to eliminate salt from restaurant kitchens and attempted to outlaw large-size containers of sugary beverages, actually bought three minutes of primetime TV on CBS and NBC to lecture the nation about the dangers of coronavirus and how to avoid it.
So you would expect Bloomie at least to exercise basic rules of hygiene when handling put out for a crowd, right? Fat chance. Here he is helping himself to a snack at his campaign headquarters in Virginia.

If nothing else, shouldn’t Bloomberg, who preaches the dangers of sodium and sugar consumption, be avoiding this “poison”?
