Pennsylvania Politics

Tom Wolf Struggles with Well Wishes for President Trump, First Lady Melania

Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf just can’t separate himself from politics and his power as Lord of the Pandemic right now.

Over the weekend, Wolf couldn’t even wish President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump a speedy recovery from their COVID-19 infections without mentioning face masks. It kinda sounds like Wolf’s actually blaming Trump for getting infected.

“Frances and I wish President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump a speedy recovery,” Wolf tweeted.

But he just couldn’t resist leaving it at that. It’s almost too human of a response.

In that same tweet, Wolf said, “We’re all in this together. Let’s all mask up and do our part to stop the spread of COVID-19.”

Again with the masks. The man has no scruples.

While the first half of Wolf’s tweet is somewhat genuine, the second half reads like he’s blaming Trump, himself, for catching COVID. Why not just leave it at that first sentence? Save the mask lecture for another tweet, perhaps another day.

At the very least, the timing of that part of the message is poor. When the tweet was sent, at 1:44 p.m. Friday, Oct. 2, Trump was on his way to Walter Reed hospital to undergo treatments for the COVID infection.

Wolf’s tweet was akin to calling an ambulance for someone who’s sick or injured and then lecturing them on how they could have avoided the whole situation if they’d just listened to you.

Every chance Wolf’s had to push his mask policy in Pennsylvania – once he settled on one – he’s done so.

But remember, it took a while for Wolf to even settle on a mask policy in Pennsylvania.

What was once a mandate then became merely a suggestion.

As this policy was evolving, we tracked all the statements Wolf and his administration made on mandatory masks.

    Lord of the pandemic. What a ridiculous comment. Wolf’s restrictions have saved lives and our healthcare system.

      PA’s hospitals lost $billions over just a few months due to Tom freaking out. And guess who is going to pay for it?

      Isn’t Wolf responsible for over 8 thousand supposed Covid deaths in PA or is only Trump responsible?

        Just think what would have happened in this state without the governor’s restrictions. Covid would have spread like wildfire and there would be plenty more deaths and the healthcare system would be pushed to the brink. We simply couldn’t afford it.

          “Spread like wildfire” … dude, you’re still calling stuff out of the old playbook.

    Sure I am. Just look at the states that opened back up too quickly like Florida and Texas. The virus spread like “wildfire.”

      Look at the supposed Covid deaths per/100,000 in Florida, Texas and PA. It is pretty much the same. So the results from Florida and Texas opening up are the same as PA’s draconian lockdown when you look at deaths-to-population.

      Looks like PA’s governor handled it much much worse. Made hospitals lose $billons, untold number of small business devastated or gone for good. Kids made to stay at home, and now you got all these mental health issues. Drug/alcohol abuse out the roof.

      And you want to say Wolf did a great job?

      Who is responsible for the 8,000 plus supposed Covid deaths in PA? Wolf or Trump?

    Get real Frank. Some of you people need to get your head examined. You act as if the only bad thing that can happen to you because of covid-19 is death. Respiratory problems and neurological disorders can also happen as a result of covid-19. Also, a 30,000 medical bill.

      Florida, Texas, PA, essentially the same Covid death results, except PA is much worse off.

        Youre right Frank, data is data…
        Florida population = 21.5 million
        Florida covid deaths = 15 thousand
        PA population = 12.5 million
        PA covid deaths = 8+ thousand
        …death rate is about the same, give or take…
        …policies and approach to lockdowns, etc. are VERY different.
        …PA has been crushed by this Bolshevik dictator Schmendrick Wulf.
        …a full year of precious life and freedoms were stolen from us, by China, and Blue state government overreach…so sad.

    Frank, you have no idea what you’re talking about. We’re through. It’s pointless to respond to a person as clueless as you.
