JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Missouri Gov. Mike Parson is clarifying comments he made in a radio interview in which he said children returning to school will come down with the coronavirus but will “get over it,” remarks that drew criticism from several Democrats as well as the head of a state teachers union.

The Republican governor made the comments Friday during an interview on “The Marc Cox Morning Show” on 97.1 FM in St. Louis. Democratic State Auditor Nicole Galloway, Parson's likely opponent in the November general election, said on Twitter that the governor showed “stunning ignorance” about how COVID-19 affects children.

. . .

“What I was trying to say is that there is a very real possibility that there could be COVID in our schools, and we want to be prepared for that,” Parson said.

He said anyone who uses his comments politically to say he doesn't care about children “is one sick individual.”

1. Is there some university somewhere that teaches Republicans how to be awful people?

They are all so awfully good at it.

2. We don't need to use those comments, governor.

Opening the schools with little regard for the children demonstrates the whole "not caring about children" part.

4. Another great Missouri Republican, you will remember for these deep thoughts:

Rep. Todd Akin Says It's Rare Women Get Pregnant from 'Legitimate Rape'


Rep. Todd Akin is facing a huge amount of criticism for remarks he made on Sunday while clarifying his opposition to abortion. Akin said pregnancy doesn't often occur in "a legitimate rape," because "the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down."

13. Pretty obvious who the genuinely "sick individual" is.

Just another brain-dead Repube fuckhole.

Bonus points for posting the Santorum action picture.
