If everyone in the U.S. had Covid-19, over ten million people would likely be killed (my estimate is more like 2 million, using conservative numbers). CNBC Editor joins Ed Conway of the Sunday Times with a case of idiocy, which apparently is a global pandemic among journalists, and spreading rapidly:

CNBC’s Rick Santelli lamented the impact that the COVID-19 coronavirus was having on global financial markets Thursday, suggesting that “maybe we’d be better off if we just gave it to everybody” to help markets.

Full quote:

“Maybe we’d be better off if we just gave it to everybody, and then in a month it would be over because the mortality rate of this probably isn’t going to be any different if we did it that way. But the difference is we’re wreaking havoc on global and domestic markets.”

He’s back tracking now and apologizing for being a total idiot. Why is he employed by CNBC then?

Meanwhile, Trump has lost the Washington Examiner, the conservative “paper of record” in Washington, DC as their editor blasts Trump’s insanity this past weekend.
