President Donald Trump is heading to Capitol Hill for a luncheon with Republican Senators. While it’s not listed on his official calendar, reporters found one element of the unscheduled get together even more surprising: lunch will feature a buffet.
The notice that went out to Senate Republican offices about the lunch with Trump notes that the “buffet will open early at noon.”

Many noted in a pandemic a buffet is a sure way to spread the deadly coronavirus.
It’s unclear if the President is feeling especially invulnerable after revealing Monday he is taking hydroxychloroquine, an anti-malaria drug he suggests he believes protects against COVID-19 despite zero evidence.
OMG buffet? Have they not seen that germy black light video. 🤢

Come for the lack of social distancing, stay for the exposure to asymptomatic carriers of covid-19.
