Mark Meadows Breaks the Internet with Sunday Morning COVID Comment

Meadows really could have phrased this better.

There are but nine measly days left between now and the 2020 election.  For some folks, this is a Godsend, as they will finally be able to step away from the political black hole that our culture has fallen into over the course of the last several years.

For others, however, there is a real sense of dread about what’s to come.  President Trump has intimated that there could be a question about the validity of the results and, thanks to 2020 being one of the strangest years on record, there are very real fears that his reticence to leave office could lead the nation to a dark and terrible place.

There are also fears that fringe right wing groups, who often operate under the guise of militia groups, could resent a loss by the President and commit violent acts of retribution.

But there is another notable distinction about these nine remaining days in that the campaigns of Joe Biden and Donald Trump see this as a deadline.  After the election ends, the way in which they and their surrogates speak to the American people can be a little more frank and honest.  They won’t need to be so extremely careful with their verbiage.

White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, for instance, wouldn’t have gotten raked over the coals as he did today for his comments on COVID-19, made during an interview with Jake Tapper of CNN.

White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows said Sunday that the country is “not going to control the pandemic” — noting it is contagious like the flu and must be managed with therapeutics and vaccines.

“We’re not going to control the pandemic. We are going to control the fact that we get vaccines, therapeutics and other mitigation efforts,” Meadows said during a contentious interview with Jake Tapper on CNN’s “State of the Union.”

“Why aren’t we going to get to control the pandemic?” Tapper asked.

“Because it is a contagious virus just like the flu,” Meadows responded, as the two went back and forth about President Trump and Vice President Mike Pence continuing to campaign after five members of Pence’s staff testing positive.

Meadows would go on to say that the nation could control things like vaccines, treatments, and other mitigation factors, but not before the Twitterverse lost their ever-loving minds.

And while Mark Meadows may have been trying to say that the most powerful path to health and stability lies within innovation, his blunt approach to the subject would have been better taken 10 or 11 days from now.
