Kemp should resign over this.
“Those individuals could have been infecting people before they ever felt bad, but we didn’t know that until the last 24 hours,” he said.
He added that the state’s top doctor told him that “this is a game-changer.”
He should resign too.
Game-changer? I knew that asymptomatic people could spread the disease after Dr. Fauci explained that in a press conference in late January. It was being openly discussed on television and in the news reports in early February. When I did my last live ethics seminar on March 5—in Atlanta!—the lawyers were all discussing the fact that they couldn’t be sure if they were infected, or if I was.
And this idiot goes to a podium and says; ‘Stop the presses! I just found out that people who feel fine might still spread the virus!’
This is an unacceptable level of inattention and incompetence, even for politics. An official like this not only cannot be trusted, but must not. His staff and advisors are similarly not qualified to have involved in public policy, not just during a health emergency, but ever, not even if everyone could safely frolic in the sun.
Even ignoring the fact that he somehow managed to not pick up on crucial information that was available everywhere, he really proved his stupidity by announcing his “game-changer” as if it really was news. How many Georgians were blinded because they rolled their eyes so hard they fell out of their sockets? What else do you want to tell us. Governor? That we finally put a man on the moon? That Paul isn’t really dead? That Truman beat Dewey? That Lindbergh landed in Paris?
He’s not even smart enough to know how stupid he sounds.
Tell Stacy Abrams the job is open. Heck, tell anyone. It’s impossible to be less fit for office than this.
Now, one might argue that it is honest and admirable for Kemp to admit his failing. No. He was, whether he realized it or not admitting that he is incompetente and an idiot.
He should have realized that long ago too.
