Bill Gates apparently has a better team of medical experts than the President of the United States or, perhaps, he is just pushing a liberal agenda.
Gates, earlier this week, stated that America needs to have an “extreme shutdown” of six to 10 weeks to beat the coronavirus.
Everyone Is an Expert
The danger during these health crises’ is that every big name thinks they are suddenly an expert on pandemics.
When Trump shut down travel from China, every liberal outlet had medical experts on to say this was not going to be any worse than the flu.
Of course, none of them are saying that now and you would be hard-pressed to find those clips, although Sean Hannity recently managed to put together a montage of them.
We have basketball team owners on talk shows telling us what they think we should be doing.
And, now, Bill Gates, a financial and tech genius, is chiming in.
Bill Gates Apparently Knows All
Let’s be realistic about this… the shutdown of the economy has no impact on Gates. In fact, it will probably help him.
Sure, some of his stocks are taking a hit, but he doesn’t need to pull the money out to pay his bills like most Americans.
His money will sit there until it recovers and he is probably buying up gobs of stocks now while they are at discounted prices.
Gates does not have the greatest medical minds in the world advising him on this, whereas Trump does.
Gates, however, is still sticking his nose in it, stating, “It’s very irresponsible for somebody to suggest we can have the best of both worlds.
“What we need is an extreme shutdown so that in six to 10 weeks, if things go well, then you can start opening back up.”
What is he basing that on? Where is his medical data to back it up?
This is more fearmongering and simply making a statement to try to be one of the “I told you so” crowd.
So, here’s a novel idea… how about we let the best medical minds in the world make that decision and not a man who would benefit from a lengthy shutdown because he gets to buy stocks at $.25 on the dollar.
