This right here is why America won’t lose to the coronavirus. These numbers are proof that America refuses to surrender to anything.

You can’t have a frown when you’re day drinking away the pandemic!

I’m happy to report we made it back, but we did lose a man (his girlfriend demanded he isolate with her). I will drink these to honor this country and the sacrifices we’re making. pic.twitter.com/ShVVnlHNgf
