Apart from the amusement of seeing Kellyanne “Don’t you think it’s contained” Conway in there with Dutton the other thing that is of note is Dutton and Barr together full stop. If you want to see two truly malicious minds together you could not do better than that pair. Dutton frankly makes Stephen Miller seem kind and compassionate and I am not even remotely joking about that comment.

It took this to make them concerned? Talk about a late response!

I don’t see how the Trump admin doesn’t get sick. Multiple officials in close contact with different COVID-19 positive people in the last week.

Lack of testing finally catching up to them.

The jokes about Dutton getting the virus today included: “This is almost a case where I’d be tempted to say OMG coronavirus has Peter Dutton.” and “Coronavirus will be seeking political asylum from Peter Dutton before the night is out.”

Well she did say to a reporter last week who asked her if she thought that the virus was contained “Don’t you think it’s contained?” First thing I thought of when I saw her in the photo when the news broke here about 7 hours ago.

For obvious reasons, I struck my initial post, but I’m trying to remember if she was near a previous patient.

It’s just weird that no one from his inner circle (Meadows technically doesn’t count) hasn’t been effected.

That we know of. Mulvaney might have been, others might have been lightly impacted and we are just not aware of it. I’d hardly put it past them to lie and keep someone actively spreading it to keep their argument about ‘nothing to see here’ going.

It would be wild if the Trump administration is actually the source of all of these infections of foreign leaders, rather than the other way around.

It is true that a not insignificant number of Australian cases come from America. We were joking yesterday that if Trump blocks Europeans entering the US we should block Americans (and people returning from the US) from entering Australia.

Liar, Trickster, Grifter…

If Coronavirus has a moral compass
Then, please, please, please…you know what to do!

P.S. Just a reminder to Coronavirus…there is another grifter that needs your attention…the one in the pocket of the murderous MBS…
