Today seemed to be the day when every governor and mayor asked families not to celebrate Thanksgiving together. Never mind the thousands who hit the streets of D.C. to party after the race was called for Joe Biden; New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s new order restricts gatherings of more than 10 people in a private residence.
As we count the days until Joe Biden tries to implement a national mask mandate, check out this “emotional moment” at a COVID-19 “hugging station.” We think The Sun expected it to warm our hearts, not make us sick to our stomachs.

Apparently this isn’t a “thing” — yet — a Nebraska family came up with the idea and built it and posted the video.
This is pathetic and cowardly

Forcing people into this behavior is sick.

If I ever use one of these, please look around for the person pointing a gun at my head.

That is just sad and wrong.

Inhumane, unnecessary, and ineffective to the overblown danger being that it's only like 6 feet wide and the air can go right around

This is the most pathetic thing I’ve seen this month. And that’s saying something.

My son has been hugging his grandparents for a while now. They’re fine.

If they were looting/rioting they wouldn't have had to use that plastic.

I would hate to be part of a family that is so brainwashed they hug their relatives through a sheet.

This is the most bizarre bit of staged propaganda I have seen in a while
— Tweetophon (@Tweetophon) November 12, 2020
I can't understand how on earth so many people have been so easily hoodwinked into believing the plague is upon us.
It's like the whole world has been turned into North Korea.

— Kill23Joy (@JoyKill23) November 12, 2020
This is really sad, and scary that even with all we know and have seen, people are still this scared. I’m grateful my family has agreed to spend time together as normal and hug.
— Millwright Dad (@DaOnlyChef) November 12, 2020
this is psychotic.
— Poliscikosis – Gulag Inmate 88432 (@Poliscikosis) November 12, 2020
This is beyond creepy. Obviously I don’t know the details, perhaps the grandparents are extremely vulnerable. But the image of families having to show affection to each other through plastic wrap is something we shouldn’t forget.
Let’s not allow this stuff to become “normal”.
— Kieren Alden (@kierenalden) November 12, 2020
In the old days (pre 2020) people used to believe that natural normal human contact was good for ones health and immune system.
Now in the age of 2020 science we know that all we need is plastic and vaccines.

This is so sad…we gotta stop living in fear

Emotional? I find it deeply disturbing that this is how we have been conditioned to live our lives.
— TinyDancer (@geary_boy) November 12, 2020
The only emotion I feel is disgust at the entire concept of this nonsense, I would pull out the scissors and cut the nonsense up and hug my relative as a human

Pretty soon they'll be able to sell this
— Pasta Salad (@C_uckMangione) November 12, 2020
We were surprised to learn this wasn’t set up in a hospital somewhere — but they’ll patent it and sell it and it will be in a few months.
