Collin County Republicans Totally Unafraid of Coronavirus

At an event last night co-hosted by the county's GOP, nary a mask was seen.

Last night at the Eldorado Country Club in McKinney was a great place to get sick. The Golden Corridor Republican Women and the Collin County Republican Party hosted an event called “Thinning the Blue Line.” It was billed this way: “Moderated by Texas State Senator Angela Paxton, local law enforcement answer everything you want to know about public safety and/or policing but are afraid to ask.” Judging from social media, no one at the event seemed concerned about one aspect of public safety over which they have direct control: their own respiration and its ability to spread a deadly virus. I don’t see a single mask.

Yesterday, Collin County reported 187 new coronavirus cases and two deaths. The county is approaching the infection level it saw back in July. Also, the president of the United States early this morning revealed that he and the first lady have it.

UPDATE (10/5/20) The event planner who posted the pics to Twitter has deleted her tweet. Here’s a screen shot:
