Fox News host Gretchen Carlson managed to wrap Ebola, the Secret Service scandal, the Veterans Affairs scandal, Obamacare, the IRS and Benghazi into one long string of questions on competence and safety on her Monday show:
Time now for my take. So, should we trust the government to keep us all safe from Ebola? With the government’s recent track record not being so hot, well, we learned we couldn’t trust the IRS, after the targeting of conservative groups. The Secret Service, after an armed man made his way into the White House. The VA, after reports men and women who served this country died waiting to get health care. We couldn’t trust the promise that Obamacare that we could keep our doctors that we wanted. And do we trust that we know all the answers yet about Benghazi? What more and more people seem to be asking about Ebola now isn’t that they’re necessarily scared about actually getting the disease, but that they’re scared the government agencies responsible with helping us if we do get sick might not be up to the task. So if Ebola becomes a bigger issue the question still remains, will we be safe?
But my favorite freak-outs are the ones where they claim that the CDC is lying and that Ebola has somehow mutated into a virus which is easily transmittable from person to person.
Really? The GOP believes in mutations which serve to benefit the survival of a particular species? How interesting.
