“I’m trying to be the professional, they want me to be and I kept my mouth closed, but it’s at some point in time where you got to draw the line and say enough is enough. I feel violated; I feel violated for the folks that were on the bus when this happened. There was about eight or nine people on the bus that stood there as she coughed and never covered up her mouth,” Hargrove saidin his video.
At the moment where we need national leadership the most, we don't have it. People will die because we don't have masks, gowns & ventilators where we need them the most, when we need them. https://t.co/1viE1ZKb7w
