I'm Sorry, but this hurts; THESE ARE PEOPLE, NOT PETS OR "PRODUCT"

Ran into friend at store--he and his wife retired from long career in livestock--their kids have taken over--His comment, (Always a pragmatic; moderate--voted for candidates from both parties--gov. Robert D Ray for example,) "I've seen more leadership from Washington Dept of Ag secretaries during disease outbreaks in livestock than have come directly from Trump Admin. We do a better job of stopping the spread of disease in our livestock than Trump seems to want to do with our PEOPLE. His complacency early, combined with his bullshit stupidity, "lies and fake news", along with no protocols or procedural practices in place would cause him to lose his CAFO permit, if this dipshit even COULD qualify intelligently for one." (CAFO---Confined animal feeding permit) His wife was almost in tears--she a long time nurse and volunteers at school. When I left the store, I thought of all the work and procedures those of us in the livestock industry regularly practice. This is not to be cold--but please understand--livestock are not pets, they are PRODUCT. And in my gut, I know he is right; and you could see the hurt in his eyes. I've long respected these two--and upon hearing this--with not one word of concern for themselves---they know the risks--their kids and grandkids are more important----I wonder how many others like them are beginning to feel the same way. If they voted for TRUMP--(they didn't)--I wonder how they live with it now!
