And just like that, President Trump is back in the saddle. Boohoo cries the left as the president’s short stay (could have been shorter) at Walter Reed comes to an end. Who has more fun than him? The down in the mouth left never met a crisis it loved so much. “Don’t go home!” they cry.
Because when a 74-year-old man shows he can kick COVID-19 over a long-weekend, their greatest fears come true: They’re laughed at and called out for being WRONG from the very beginning. President Trump is living proof that the fear of getting sick far outweighs the risk of keeping the healthy locked up.
Lockdowns and social distancing are doing harm beyond repair. Consider the damage: You don’t get to redo being a seven-year-old, riding your bike through town experiencing freedom for the very first time in your life. You don’t get to go on adventures that make you late for dinner.
Dinner tables across the country, if anyone puts their phones down or gets away from Netflix, are a steam-cooker of tension. How can anyone smile with so much on their mind? Imagine how your seven-year-old self would feel when mom and dad can’t get along. Sick to your stomach. It’s not your fault.
When you talk with your grandfather—if you are even allowed to anymore—you see the concern on his face. He’s holding the Saturday paper, pressing it with ink-stained thumbs and forefingers. He sees CDs pay a pittance, houses going for prices he could never afford, and a headline that makes him laugh like a comic strip: “Federal Reserve Says No Inflation.” He reads that the wealthy flee the city to places like Aspen, paying premiums for modern flat roof manses—while he’s just trying to keep his own roof over his head.
You see the lockdown mess from the communist governor in Michigan, the school closings, the union leaders’ puppet de Blasio in New York City, Disneyland “the unhappiest place on earth” as 20,000 are laid off, the $600 check you never got. Then you wonder how many Purple states will Trump turn Red, because he unmasked COVID-19.
