I realize the man is between a rock and a hard place, but dear Lord. Everything he says now sounds like the ravings from the… Ah. Don’t shake hands. Ever.
“Maybe people aren’t going to be shaking hands anymore,” Trump said, adding that he had discussed the practice with Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. “He was saying the regular flu would be cut down by quite a bit if we didn’t do that, if we didn’t shake hands.”
The president has said he wasn’t much of a hand-shaker before he ran for political office.
I was watching (or listening) when he said that. And I remember reading, years ago, about his aversion to contact. He also puts ketchup on well-done steaks and does not smoke cigars. Should we all start bowing like the Chinese? The “Chinese Hand Shake?” How on Earth did humanity make it all these years, in such a hostile world, while engaging in such risky behavior as pressing palms?
I’m about ready to “call the time” as March of 2020. But again, this distancing from an insane society sounds better every minute. The ad says the satellite phone will provide an internet uplink (for stuff like this post) from just about anywhere. Now to look at solar inverters.
