Donald Trump has been fond of referring to the left side of the aisle as the “do nothing” Democrats, but it appears that they’ve shifted now to the “do as I say, not as I do” Democrats.
Americans today are embroiled in a widespread argument over the safety of reopening the nation during this global coronavirus pandemic. Those who believe that we shouldn’t rush back to work are calling for patience and stimulus from Congress in order to get us through this mess. Others, who believe that the COVID-19 outbreak is being overblown by the mainstream media, are demanding that local and state officials restart the economy as soon as they can.
The argument is a tricky one, and a great many domestic squabbles have erupted over the proposition…and the Obama household appears divided on the subject as well.
Former First Lady Michelle Obama and former President Barack Obama do not appear to be on the same page regarding Washington, DC’s stay-at-home orders.

“Remember, we urge you to stay home except if you need essential healthcare, essential food or supplies or to go to your essential job,” she said in a message released on Monday. “Thank you and please stay home DC.”
Someone may need to explain to her husband that golf isn’t essential.
