As COVID-19 rages through the White House, NY Post columnist Amanda Devine seems to think that’s a great model for the rest of the country – if only older people weren’t so selfish in trying to keep people from getting infected!
And I think it’s just incredibly selfish of older people or neurotic people who are timid and afraid and won't come out of their basements to confine children and young people to miss out on the most important parts of their lives on schooling and on the prime of youth.
Host Dana Perino was obviously stunned. After a pause she asked for clarification. “Older people … you think they’re selfish?”
Yep, that’s what Devine said.
Perino immediately closed the discussion but she gave Devine a stamp of approval by first saying, “it’s an interesting point of view.”
No, it’s a dangerous, immoral and divisive point of view. Just yesterday, there were 42,553 cases and 721 deaths in the U.S.
