The Troops Are Just Fine
Can you believe that the Weekly WhiteHouse.Gov newsletter actually distributed this photo? Why does the President need to sport aseptic protective gear to shake hands with a recuperating soldier? If U.S. soldier aren’t being exposed to anything POTENTIALLY CONTAGIOUS, why the prophylactic garb there, Chief? And since I worked in the operating room of a major research hospital in Texas for FIVE YEARS, make-believe stories about hospital protocol won’t cut it. Doctors DO NOT wear this stuff when making their rounds; this type of gear is reserved for asceptic environments like the O.R. At best, it’s utter incompetence that such a photo would be circulated by the P.R. monkeys, at all.
