There are really only two kinds of people in this world: Those of us who wear masks, practice social distancing and stay inside as much as possible, and assholes.
Or Republicans. Same thing, really.
As such, Republican states and Republican operatives are basically breeding grounds for COVID-19. So it is with a heavy heart that I say that Rudy Giuliani’s son, Andrew Giuliani, a special assistant to President Donald Trump, and second in line to inherit his father’s Dutch Christmas shoes, has tested positive for the coronavirus, according to Politico.

Me: My mind.
Whatever. Everyone is fine.
Scott said he’s feeling fine or whatever.
“I am feeling good and experiencing very mild symptoms,” Scott told Politico “I will be working from home in Naples until it is safe for me to return to Washington, D.C. I want to remind everyone to be careful and do the right things to protect yourselves and others.“
Tell that the zombie apocalypse crew on your side of the aisle. The folks who are just out here raw dogging air, without a face condom, in a fucking pandemic!
Lil Giuliani is experiencing mild symptoms, but he’s doing just fine, too.
Giuliani received his results Friday morning, he wrote on Twitter, and reported “experiencing mild symptoms.” He also wrote that he was “following all appropriate protocols,
