Does the President ever miss a chance to state, or restate, the obvious?
After the obligatory statement that prosperity is just around the corner, thanks to him, he dispensed this gem:
Stay home if you're sick. Wash your hands frequently. Cover your sneezes with your sleeve, not your hands. And take all the necessary precautions to stay healthy. I know it sounds simple, but it's important and it works.
Are we at the point in our history when the President of the United States has to tell us to wash our hands? Or else, you know, maybe we wouldn't?
