ICU nurse's take on 'How It Started ... How It's Going' meme goes viral - CNN Video
Kathryn, a 28-year-old ICU nurse whose take on the 'How It Started ... How It's Going' meme went viral, talks to CNN's Brooke Baldwin about the toll the coronavirus pandemic has taken on health care workers.
When he's having his dead turkey think about all the dead he's eaten gobble gobble Just like the first thanksgiving. Selfish boneheads spreading disease. We’ve come full circle. Let him get infected and learn a lesson! Millions of dead babies each year by “PPFA” Well, instead of serving dinner to needy, Señor Cruz can work on the night shift settling the dead Texans into their eternal resting grounds...
darwin chuckles quietly to himself Turd Cruz isn't exactly a good person. Remind me: When did you report on GavinNewsom's flouting restaurant rules? Something is seriously wrong with this guy . oh when he contracts the virus....... Respectfully, TX is a putz. Guaranteed, he's serving green eggs and ham...Sam I am.
Well this is just awkward. Good for him. Big government doesn't decide on what rights we have as humans. These Repubs are basically a death cult. That ain't no suggestion, that is a call to arms, borderline 1st Amendment violation.
