I consider that is AP White Home correspondent Zeke Miller, however he’s carrying a masks, so I don’t know for positive. For all I do know that is what Carrot Prime appears to be like like when he’s not on stage.
REPORTER: “Why is the president going to Delaware this weekend?”
PRESS SECRETARY JEN PSAKI: “He’s from Delaware and has a house there and is going to spend the weekend along with his spouse and household there.”
REPORTER: “However steering from the Facilities for Illness Management and Prevention, as you already know, within the final briefing simply a few hours in the past … individuals ought to keep away from journey. Is there an exception to that coverage?”
PSAKI: “Effectively, the important thing, Zeke, is making certain that folks don’t take steps to make others susceptible, in our effort to get the pandemic below management. As you already know, any president of the USA, Democrat or Republican, clearly takes Air Drive One, a non-public airplane, once they journey. Delaware is his dwelling, and so he appears to be like ahead to spending the weekend there and a while along with his household.”
Frankly, you couldn’t pay me to fly industrial proper now. Not inside the airplane, anyway. I’d fairly cling to the touchdown gear whereas balancing my unhappy bag of almost serviceable peanuts and complimentary half-can of Coke on my scurfy knee than sit inside a airplane today. However would I take a trip on Air Drive One? In fact! It’s a giant jet with a lot of well-spaced seats, and it’s occupied and crewed by well-trained, accountable individuals. At the very least now it’s. Two months in the past the CDC may have categorized it as a significant illness vector, but it surely’s not flying to Trump superspreader rallies anymore. It’s flying to Delaware.
I’m positive finally Joe Biden will do one thing that at the least seems marginally scandal-ish. I doubt he’ll salute anybody with a espresso cup in his hand, however he nonetheless has at the least 1,444 days to interrupt out the tan go well with, after which it’ll all be over. Possibly the press can wait to pounce till one thing like that occurs.
However till that point, possibly Zeke Miller, if that’s his actual identify, ought to give attention to different issues. Like, I don’t know, selling mask-wearing, social distancing, and vaccinations.
As a result of that’s what’s going to get us out of this pandemic—not nitpicking Joe Biden’s use of the most secure airplane on the planet.
