They Have It Under Control?

First some information about the White House. The Navy treats the White House as a flag ship and the President like an Admiral. That’s why there are Marine guards, a Marine band, and a special Marine helicopter serving as an “Admiral’s barge”. There is also a Navy galley (kitchen to the rest of us) with Navy cooks and stewards. One of the stewards is designated as the President’s steward and is responsible for serving the President’s meals and drinks. Should the President get sick to his stomach, the Secret Service know who to talk to about the food and the possibility of contamination.

In the last week the White House has shown it isn’t even capable of protecting itself from COVID-19. Trump doesn’t like masks, so no one at the White House wears one. Despite being a self-confessed “germophobe”, Trump has not been very effective at “social distancing”.

It started with Trump’s steward testing positive for the virus. Then Pence’s press secretary, Katie Miller, tested positive. Mrs. Miller is the wife of Trump advisor Stephen Miller.

Now Dr. Stephen Hahn director of the Food & Drug Administration, Dr. Robert Redfield, director of the Center for Disease Control, and Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, major players on the White House’s COVID-19 task force, are all in self-quarantine as a precaution.

Now others, like Kevin Hassett, a senior economic adviser at the White House is concerned about going to work.

Walls, fences, armed guards, surveillance systems, alarm systems, access control points, and COVID-19 still found a way in.

Trump picked a terrible week to try re-open the economy 😈 [with apologies to National Lampoon’s Airplane]

Yep, That’s why I have all of the Tropical Weather up early and the 1995 hurricane map header in the rotation. It is projected to be a Subtropical or Tropical in the Bahamas late Friday or early Saturday. It’s that time of year.
