Shouldn’t this be common sense?
Louisiana’s leaders, who generated massive profits from Mardi Gras, are now pointing the finger at President Trump and the federal government for not telling them to shut it down beforehand.
According to the Washington Examiner, “There was never any hint from anyone, to me or to the mayor of New Orleans, that there should be any consideration to downsizing or — or canceling Mardi Gras. I think if you look back, there were about 15 cases in the country, all of which were tied directly to travel or indirectly to travel,” Democratic Gov. John Bel Edwards said.
Edwards then added, “There was never any hint of this, and if you’ll go back, you will see that the federal government was saying things were well under control. And so this is some Monday morning quarterbacking going on, and quite frankly, I believe it’s likely that Mardi Gras contributed to the seeding of the virus in and around New Orleans.” You can read the full details of this story here.
