Far-left commentator Sally Kohn somehow thinks state governments ordering nonessential businesses to close means they aren’t forcing businesses to lay off their workforces.
Sinclair’s Eric Bolling wrecked her on Twitter for it.
Kohn bleated on Twitter that “I'm really tired of reading how business owners are ‘forced’ to layoff [sic] workers. No one made them do that. They *chose* to do that.” [Emphasis added.] She continued down that ridiculous line of illogic: “Not saying it isn't a hard choice, during a hard time, but to say they were *forced* obscures their agency AND casts owners/CEOs as the victims.”
Enter Eric Bolling:
ABC News had just recently reported that “At least 46 states and Washington, D.C., have enacted policies to close nonessential businesses in an effort to slow the spread of novel coronavirus in the United States.” [Emphasis added.]
Kohn lamely tried to defend herself in a rambling Twitter thread as other Twitter users called her comments into question. Most of her succeeding tweets got laughably ratioed.
Kohn began by begging:
She then tried reiterating:
Like a bad joke, Kohn continued on and further embarrassed herself.
She then tried to attack her critics:
She then shifted to attacking America: “And this is the damn problem with our country — that we systematically care more about the rich than the poor, that we care more about the economy than people, that we care more about owners than workers. It's not just in this moment. It's always. THAT is also a pandemic.”
Take the “L” and move on, Sally.
