Indignity Vol. 2, No. 70: I'm a kid. I think Leana Wen is a bad mother.
YOUNGER READERS DEP'T.
Professional Covid apologist Leana Wen was back in the Washington Post this week, delivering her latest explanation of why the only thing left to do about Covid is to do nothing at all: "I’m a doctor. Here’s why my kids won’t wear masks this school year."
Wen has been doing this shtick for so long now, with so little interest in being persuasive, there's not much left for an adult to say. So to address Wen's reasoning skills—and her parenting skills—Indignity turned to an actual child.
Dominic Scocca-Ho is 10 years old and is preparing to enter sixth grade. He recently recovered from his first case of Covid, which he acquired when, after a solid month of universal masking and twice-weekly testing, his summer dance camp chose to let participants opt out of wearing masks onstage for their two days of final performances.
