Truest statement of the week II

The coronavirus-stricken crew of the USS Roosevelt would be more useful making N-95 masks, building housing for people living on the streets, and tilling community gardens to prepare for supply chain collapse.
Go fuck yourself with your atom bomb.”
Pentagon brass say they’re anxious that US adversaries Russia, China, North Korea, and Iran may take advantage of our pandemic-crippled armed forces in their hemisphere, but they can kiss my ass. I still don’t have an N-95 mask, a coronavirus test, or a stimulus check, so how’m I supposed to worry that a Chinese aircraft carrier steamed through a strait in the East China Sea? That a Russian fighter jet flew within 25 feet of a US Navy surveillance plane over the Mediterranean? Or that Iranian Navy vessels are “harassing” the US Navy and Coast Guard in the Persian Gulf?
Why don’t we just bring them all home? What the hell is our Coast Guard doing off the coast of Iran anyway? Who’s protecting New Jersey?

I’m more frightened of empty grocery shelves, unemployment, and gun-toting militias egged on by the Orange Tweeter-in-Chief.
