A good example of how our media are uniquely unsuited for this moment. Their panicky inability to think things through at all combined with their desire to harm Trump over all other considerations, including public health. https://t.co/Z4lQRTGyss

How are those viruses carried into the country, Chris?

Human carriers do, though. But you knew that.

You’re a moron. How do you think viruses cross borders?
