I get that blaming Obama is the cool thing to do, but what about blaming the people who are actually doing dumb stuff? I mean, that nurse got a plane knowing she had a fever and had been in contact with an Ebola patient. That’s stupid, and she knowingly endangered hundreds of people. Now some clinical worker is on a damn cruise ship, and even though it’s a low risk person, COME ON YOU WENT ON A CRUISE.
And finally, US patient zero. A foreign national who concealed his disease and brought an incredibly dangerous disease to this country for the first time.
The selfishness all these people have displayed is absolutely mind boggling. Some things are more important than your friend’s wedding, your cruise vacation, or yes even seeing your family one last time before you die. A part of individual responsibility is sometimes giving up what you want to do because it’s in the best interests of the people around you. But thanks to people’s selfishness, hundreds of people have potentially been exposed to a deadly virus.
That’s what really bugs me about this. We know that it takes about 3 weeks for the virus to manifest its symptoms, and a healthcare worker of all people should know that. So you put your life on pause for three weeks, and then if you don’t have any symptoms you move on. But that was two much to ask. Three weeks would have meant missing a friend’s wedding or a Caribbean cruise! It’s insanity.
Good work, jerks.bOkay now you can all resume blaming Obama.
