The Texas Tribune reported:

He spoke Monday night at what he called a "standing room only event" in Collin County, later tweeting photos of him addressing a maskless crowd. Less than three hours before his diagnosis was announced Tuesday afternoon, he tweeted pictures of a meeting with guitarist Jimmie Vaughan.

While Killer Abbott promotes death for others by fighting mask mandates, he probably won’t wind up in any of the five mortuary trailers Texas requested from the federal government this month, in anticipation of a big spike in COVID deaths. He has been fully vaccinated and says he’s asymptomatic.

But he is also being treated with Regeneron's monoclonal antibody treatment, while more needy people go without.

Thank God at least some of the Texas House Democrats have stayed away from the Capitol. More from The Texas Tribune:

In addition to the travel outside Austin, Abbott has been a presence at the Capitol, where a second special session is underway to pass the governor's agenda, including his priority elections bill. However, legislating mostly remains at a standstill due to the continued Democratic quorum break in the House over the elections legislation.

I don’t wish harm on anyone, even a scumbag like Abbott. But that doesn’t mean we shouldn't point out the obvious, either.
