The COVID-19 pandemic has celebrities, world leaders, and everyday people on indefinite lockdown. For the uber-wealthy, it’s an extended staycation in a mansion, luxury bunker or superyacht. But, what’s a chateau got to do with the rest of us? For those in domiciles with fewer than 17 bathrooms, it’s been a somewhat more trying apocalypse. Fears of the disease, global economic depression, and food shortages haunt many nightmares.
Many celebs are handling the crisis about as well as a 2-year-old throwing a temper tantrum after missing a nap. Others exposed how little compassion they have for the less-well-off. A few tried their best to share uplifting messages in the form of tweets, but only exposed how out of touch they are. For every lovable John Krasinski, there is a heel like Elon Musk. While the rich and powerful may be relatively safe from the coronavirus, even 20-foot walls can’t save them from their own worst enemies: themselves. From stupid politicians to misguided celebrities, this list is all Twitter don’ts and no do’s.

Not a joke, folks, we just launched our new podcast. It’s called “Here’s the Deal.” For our first episode, I sat down with Ron Klain, former White House Ebola Response Coordinator, for a discussion on COVID-19.

Cardi B calls out celebrities & the government:
“If [Trump] is saying ‘if you don’t have any symptoms of the Coronavirus do not get tested because we don’t have enough tests’ but a celebrity is saying ‘I don’t have symptoms but I got tested & I’m positive’ that causes confusion” pic.twitter.com/VgKFqIBH8h

Breaking news: Congressman Massie has tested positive for being an asshole. He must be quarantined to prevent the spread of his massive stupidity. He’s given new meaning to the term #Masshole. (Finally, something the president and I can agree on!) https://t.co/N1CNLPsZjc

This is really great news! I am so happy I can barely speak. He may have been a terrible presidential candidate and an even worse U.S. Senator, but he is a RINO, and I like him a lot! https://t.co/42zpWW9vzy
