Priorities. You wouldn’t want the drivers stuck for a day on I-95 to forget to wear their masks and transmit the virus through their windshield.
Traveling only 31 miles in 12 hours on Interstate 95 is an experience that Joseph Catalano never could have imagined being part of his family’s post-Christmas trip to Disney World.
Catalano, who was traveling with his wife and two children, ages 7 and 10, says he was just under six hours from his home in northern New Jersey last night when the situation quickly deteriorated.
“We stopped in hotels and there was people shoulder to shoulder laying… I was going to go in there and say, ‘Can we get a cot and go in a conference room?’ You couldn’t even walk into the hotel, the Marriott, there was people laying on the floor shoulder to shoulder,” Catalano told Fox News Digital, describing one scene he says he encountered near Quantico, Virginia.
Catalano added that at one point, he went only 31 miles in 12 hours along a stretch of I-95. He is now calling the situation a “complete failure by the entire state of Virginia.”
“We had absolutely no idea what we were going into,” Catalano added. “You had all these fancy signs on the highway [saying], ‘Mask up, mask up’, ‘Save lives, mask up.’ Turn the signs on and say, ‘Turn around,’ you know, ‘50-mile backup,’ something.”
Politicians have their priorities. And Virginia Democrats put mask virtue-signaling ahead of their basic responsibilities.
