oh boy… cnn’s not going to like this

Gasp!

CNN criticizes people who went against the White House’s advice!!

How can this be?

About 70 people in their 20s chartered a plane from Austin, Texas, to Mexico for spring break two weeks ago. They went against the advice of White House officials who asked that people avoid gathering in groups of more than 10 and nonessential air travel.

Italy peaked 12 days ago.

You would have been hard pressed to find news of that.

Spain has now surpassed them by 2,000 cases.

US is now at 245,658 confirmed cases and 6,069 dead. 2.4%

I was at UPMC HQ twice in January.

3 months later, vaccine.

I’ll send my Venmo to anyone who wants to thank me.
