I’ve heard enough comments from friends who have turned their TV’s off at the sickening events of the Republican National Convention, a.k.a. the #TrumpCircus. But a gaggle of California staffers have actually become sick with the dreaded norovirus.
Norovirus is the bane of large gatherings and cruise ships.
The virus causes extreme vomiting and diarrhea and has been known to spread explosively through people in closed places, such as cruise ships, schools and nursing homes, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.[California GOP Chairman Jim] Brulte said that, so far, no delegates or alternates have shown symptoms. He said his delegation will continuing to attend the convention at Quicken Loans Arena, where the Californians sit next to the Maryland delegation.
Hand sanitizer, please!
But it could be fortunate for those who have to put up with 48 hours of living hell, in that they don’t have to endure the living hell at Quicken Loans Arena.
I’m not sure which is worse: Watching the Trump circus unfold, or puking your guts out. It’s really a close call.
