Matt Schlapp, chairman of the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), assured viewers of Fox News that President Donald Trump repeatedly “scrubbed” his hands while at the event
During an appearance on Fox & Friends, Schlapp spoke about the coronavirus patient who attended CPAC.
“We had Purell and hand sanitizer stations — I think over 30 of then all over the conference,” Schlapp insisted. “I think everybody was scrubbing down all the time because they realized they were at a very big public event.”
Schlapp confirmed that he had incidental contact with the infected person. But he did not say whether it was before or after he shook President Donald Trump’s hand.
“I can tell you, when the president was on site at CPAC, he lives by what he tells us,” Schlapp explained. “Because I saw him scrubbing down his hands and clean his hands more than once while he was on the premises.”
“And I did the same,” he added. “My wife was squirting Purell in my hands at every moment.”

Make cops pay for their crimes and end ‘qualified immunity’: conservative columnist
Writing for the conservative Bulwark, the vice president for criminal justice at the Cato Institute explained that the time has come for police officers who have been accused of crimes be treated like any other Americans and not be handed the shield of "qualified immunity" that protects them from paying the price for breaking the law.
As Cato's Clark Neily wrote, in light of the death of George Floyd at the hands of four Minneapolis police officers -- now all fired -- it is time for a reappraisal of legal protections provided to law enforcement personnel.
Big hints lie in the official complaint against Derek Chauvin — and surprising details are left out: ex-prosecutor
In a column for CNN, former federal prosecutor Elie Honig reviewed the criminal complaint filed against ex-Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin and said it gives clues as to the direction prosecutors are likely to follow to convict the alleged killer of Georg Floyd -- but it also leaves out key elements of the case that should be brought before a jury.
As Honig wrote, the case against Chauvin is strong but may not go far enough.
