    Fact: 150 international health experts recently issued an open letter to the World Health Agency calling for the Olympic Games to be delayed or moved in the name of public health. They warned that having hundreds of thousands of people travel to the Olympics in Brazil, would inevitably lead to the births of more brain-damaged babies and speed up the global spread of the virus.

    However, the World Health Organization says not to worry and the holding the Olympics in fetid swampland crawling with Zika is nothing to worry about.

    Meanwhile, Obama is
    permitting Zika-infected women to enter the United States. But since the U.N. says don't worry...don't worry.

    Is this the same Obama who is fighting to get Congress to increase funding to fight the disease?

    Yes. Obama is suffering from Migrant Aura syndrome.

    However, since the U.N. says there is nothing to worry about there is no reason to waste money fighting Zika.

    There's criminals at the Centers for Disease Control. Inviting a diseased Honduran woman, flying her in, yet, to drop anchor?

    Jeebus, you even bollocks up the thread title of something this basic. They did NOT say "Zika Virus Is Not a Threat." They said holding and attending the Rio Olympics shouldn't cause or worsen Zika related problems.

    "...It's a wonder that you still know how to breathe."

    Zika is the new Ebola is the new SARS is the new West Nile Virus.

    Wait, I thought the UN was a bad thing? Wasting taxpayer money and getting free room here in NYC and being all libbie and such?

    And our current sitting president isn't doing anything about it! Leave it to those <insert political party here> to not care!

    Until we start getting into Captain Tripps level stuff, I ain't worryin'.

    By all means, explain how Obama had ANYTHING to do with that? Also explain how this lady entering the US means anything, specially given that Zika is non-communicable.

    Good thing the UN has no say on our policy.
