This Was So Obviously Self-Parody That I Feared He Was Misquoted

But no.  4/18/20 New York Times.  Thomas Friedman rejecting the idea of reopening anywhere:
And as individuals, every person will be playing Russian roulette every minute of every day: Do I get on this crowded bus to go to work or not? What if I get on the subway and the person next to me is not wearing gloves and a mask? What if they sneeze? Do I get in the elevator at the office if there is another person on it?
Most of America does not have subways or c rowded buses.  Many of us never use elevators, much less crowded ones.  He needs to get out (of New York) more often.  Really, the goal is to destroy the economy: the Left's only way top Trump from getting re-elected.  Amusingly enough, no comment over there realized that he is describing an America that does not exist.  Flawless quote over at Instapundit:
Easy for those with no financial issues to tell everybody else they must cower in their homes.

  1. He needs to get out of New York City more often, but he's afraid the Indians will scalp him if he goes past Yonkers.
