'We’ll never get back to normal': Cruise ship worker buries Ron DeSantis for barring them from requiring vaccines
A singer and pianist who makes her living performing on cruise ships is pleading with Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis to reverse his controversial policy barring cruises from requiring guests to show proof that they've been vaccinated against the novel coronavirus.
Writing in the Washington Post, Alissa Musto argues that the cruise industry will "never get back to normal" unless ships are allowed to ask for proof of vaccinations.
"I fear that this policy will drag down an industry that's already been treading water for 15 months," she writes. "Everyone who works on a cruise ship -- and, I'd bet, most passengers, too -- want to know that the people onboard with us don't pose an unnecessary risk to our health and safety. If cruise lines can't protect the safety of passengers and crew and make people feel confident about booking their vacations, we'll never get back to normal."
Musto then argues that cruise ships are already allowed to put their own employees through medical evaluations that include mandatory vaccinations as conditions of employment, which is why it seems a stretch to believe they cannot require the same of their guests.
"I just hope Florida's new policies won't stand in the way of my colleagues and me getting back to work -- and the lives we've had to put on hold for the past 15 months," she concludes.
MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell on Wednesday leaked a video of an interview with The Daily Show before it could be aired on Comedy Central.
The interview occurred over the weekend as Lindell was hosting a rally that he hoped would bring attention to his efforts to overturn the 2020 presidential election.
On Wednesday, Lindell told Real America's Voice host Steve Bannon that Daily Show producers had insisted on conducting his interview in front of portable toilets.
Bannon then aired about six minutes of cell phone video showing Daily Show personality Jordan Klepper interviewing Lindell.
In the video, Lindell appeared to be livid.
"We're supposed to be letting people like you destroy us?" Lindell exclaims before complaining that Klepper had not watched his videos about the election.
"Mike, I watched all of your pillow commercials," Klepper replies.
"You're being a jokester, you're being real funny," Lindell says. "Shame on you for what you've done to our country when you're saying stuff like that. This has nothing to do with the pillow!"
"We have cyber evidence! Don't you care?" he continues. "Don't you care your country was attacked and China, the CCP was behind this? You've got to watch the movies. You'll go, 'Wow, Mike, this is amazing!'"
"I've got to get through this Mare of Easttown," Klepper jokes, referring to the HBO drama.
"What?" Lindell responds.
"Do you not have HBO Max?" the Daily Show comedian asks.
"I don't watch trash. I spend my time trying to evangelize," Lindell insists. "We're in the greatest revival in history. Our country wants to get back to one nation under God."
"What are you doing here?" the MyPillow CEO adds. "You're trying to mock me."
"I just want one of the pillows," Klepper explains.
