PA factory to trump: "You have cooties. Please don't visit."

*SNIP*

President Trump was pushing to get out in the public eye in recent weeks and tout his leadership during the pandemic, and White House staff thought they had hit on the ideal event: a presidential visit to thank the Pennsylvania factory workers who had recently taken herculean steps to ramp up U.S. supplies of protective equipment.

Workers had received national attention after dozens of them lived for 28 days inside their factory so they could ensure they were virus-free and their production was not contaminated or disrupted by illness.

White House officials pressed to hold an event at the Braskem factory, initially scheduled for last Friday. But after extensive back and forth, factory officials ultimately asked to postpone, worried that a visit from Trump could jeopardize both the safety of the workers and the plantís ability to produce special material for masks and other medical gear, according to two people familiar with the decision and documents reviewed by The Post.

7. Wish Biden could somehow get in on the action, considering he's a native Pennsylvanian.

That would really stick in Fat Nixon's craw.
