No, I am going to go full Trumpie here. Kneejerk initial responses to the


Announcement of the China travel ban early in the pandemic were met with dem complaints that it was racist, xenophobic, anti-Asian, all that. I think repubs have a legit whaddabout with that.

I do think later on it changed to a complaint about only banning travel with China, but initially, it was more about how the Trump admin loved to erect walls.

It’s why I find it interesting that the Trump cult spin machine is so focused on pounding a square peg into a round hole by comparing Covid travel bans with a pre-Covid ban - seems to me to drive home the differences between the two, and not in ways positive to Trump among believers in the 1st Amendment, equal protection, all that good stuff.
