Holy s*it what a take:
So at what point are the rest of us going to tire of billionaires – whose lives are completely unaffected by lockdowns, school closures, travel restrictions, and all the rest – telling us good little proles that we just have to wait a few more months? https://t.co/He9c6iwhGe

And here’s Ted Cruz challenging both of them, as well as every other person calling for these sorts of lockdowns, to give up *their* paychecks and then tell us that’s OK:
Leftists: a millionaire & a billionaire discuss how they think its “appropriate” to destroy & bankrupt small businesses across America.
Tell you what…halt ALL salaries at CNN & Microsoft, stop paying Dem politicians & then let’s see if they think TWO MORE YEARS shutdown is OK. https://t.co/OwKLXLYZxT
