Mayor of New Orleans Blames Trump for HER Decision to Have Mardi Gras
 
The Mayor of New Orleans is now blaming President Donald Trump and the federal government for her decision to hold the city's iconic Mardi Gras festival.

According to The Daily Caller:

The mayor of New Orleans on Thursday blamed the federal government and President Donald Trump for  her decision not to cancel this year’s Mardi Gras, which health experts believe might have helped spread coronavirus in the Big Easy.

“The federal government did not issue any red flags, and therefore we moved forward,” LaToya Cantrell said in an interview with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer.

 

...

Other federal officials were sounding the alarm in the weeks before the celebration.

Blitzer, the CNN host, noted to Cantrell that Dr. Nancy Messonier, the director of the CDC’s National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases, said on Feb. 12 that coronavirus was likely to “gain a foothold in the U.S.”

Democrats famously attacked the President for his "racist" decision to restrict travel to China earlier this year so it is unknown if the mayor of New Orleans would have heeded the President's warnings or not. But complaining now about it is convenient.
