(Jezebel)   Meghan McCain says she's lost trust in Dr. Anthony Fauci because he isn't blaming BLM protesters for the Rona surge. He also isn't blaming dolphin farts or the lack of a Season 2 of Watchmen so what's her point?   (theslot.jezebel.com) divider line

Meghan McCain

God, SHUT UP.   Stop pretending you're one of us.
 
2020-07-02 11:47:12 AM  
With no empirical data whatsoever , I'm gonna guess that all the people in bars in Houston two weekends ago exceeded the total protestors nationwide.

Jesus save us from teevee "celebrities" - maybe he's not "blaming" them because they aren't responsible? The only time the Meghans of the world insist on equal treatment is when they are credibly blamed for something.
 
2020-07-02 11:49:27 AM  
I know then when I seek out the most reliable medical or health advice, Meghan's endorsement is the first thing I look for.
 
2020-07-02 11:51:10 AM  
Why does anyone care what she says?

Wait til she runs for Senator of Arizona in 2024.

There's no evidence the protests caused an uptick in infections.

FFS. BLM making room to protect white kid lives. LGBTQ community making room for black gay and trans pride. 

On a level beautiful but OMG whyTF do we need this. I wish we didn't need this.

A good portion of the protesters were wearing masks as much as possible, plus they were outside, which helps (except for the tear gas which didn't help)

The people packing into bars, restaurants and Trump rallies are not wearing masks at all, and they're inside.

Gee, I wonder where the virus is coming from...

I don't trust Meghan McCain because she's the human equivalent of a blancmange.

Daily reminder: Protesting against being systemically murdered is an essential function.
 
2020-07-02 12:14:10 PM  
There are two points to take away from this article. First off, Jezebel sucks. In every possible way that you could imagine, this site is absolutely awful. From layout and pop over ads to the awful writing that skews hyperbolic at a drop of a hat.

Second, Meghan McCain is bought and paid for GOP. Every once in a while she tries to play a Centrist role in order to keep yourself relevant but in the end will always follow the cult.

Ignore both, the world will be better if more of us do.

I'll get slammed for this but let's not bury our heads and also pretend that it helped curtail the spread.  The protests are great but covid is going to be transmitted at them.

The blame of the initial outbreak still lies squarely with failed leadership.
 
2020-07-02 12:16:16 PM  
Has anyone pointed it out to her that virus cases are rising fastest in places where BLM protests are not happening?

Her point is the infectious disease "experts" can't possibly know more about infectious disease transmission than a woman with an art history degree who only has any kind of public presence because her dad was famous.

Take a minute to look at the location of the high infection rates. They are mostly in the South and mostly close to beaches. Except for Los Angeles there is almost no corelation of locations with major protest and Covid outbreaks.  Cities/States also started opening 3 weeks ago around Memorial Day.

I would think contact tracing would clear this right up. Maybe if we had a competent government we could tell exactly were the new cases are coming from.

edmo: With no empirical data whatsoever , I'm gonna guess that all the people in bars in Houston two weekends ago exceeded the total protestors nationwide.


The empirical evidence seems to strongly support that it is harder to catch COVID in outdoor settings too. It's obviously not impossible but measurably lower than catching it from being in an enclosed room with one or more infected people. I've also noticed most protesters wearing masks. Kinda hard to drink with your mask on. So bar patrons are in a closed setting, not wearing masks, spraying more when they speak because it is loud and they are raising their voices, and forgetting to distance as their inhibitions are lowered by alcohol.

Megan,

There's outside and inside. They're different. How different? If you keep a cucumber outside of your body, it remains a cucumber. If you happen to store a cucumber inside of your body, without eating it, for a few weeks, it will turn into a pickle.

I wanted to like Watchmen, but something was just missing.  either too slow or not enough explanation of things.

Also add in that the biggest infection rates are happening in the red parts of that population density map turmp likes to show off so much.

PS. There's also some pretty solid empirical data about binge drinking a susceptibility to influenza and pneumonia and other respiratory illness.

Wait, wait, this is like "Where's Waldo", right? In the first picture we're supposed to find the person not wearing a mask, and in the second picture find the person wearing a mask?

Sadly, I've utterly failed in both cases.

It's almost like the early examples of, say, Japanese transit not spreading the virus (where people are packed in tightly, but all wearing masks, and have very strong cultural practices around NOT TALKING ON THE TRAIN) were significant somehow...

It's Arizona, i.e. Dry Alabama. She's white. She's rich. Do you know who her father is?

She'll wind up being the reason term limits are finally agreed to.

You'll get slammed for this because it's wrong. NYC which has had large, daily protests since the end of May has not seen an uptick.

As a trend their daily cases are going down. If the general population was wearing masks at the rate that the protesters are we'd be more inline with the EU on the number of daily cases and we'd be getting this under control.

Not just outside with masks but constantly intermingling, helping to prevent spread as it appears a critical viral load is needed for COVID to spread.
