    Paid or not paid, I don't understand why we need to do contact tracing at this stage?

    Plus, given that some americans can tell you to fuck off by a simple request to put on a mask, can you imagine contact tracers telling them to quarantine? They'll probably shoot them.

    It'd suck if you get shot on the job as an unpaid intern. Even with pay, not sure the job would be worth it. Just focus on making more vaccines please!

    It's such a class driven scheme.

    But, then again, our society is rigged to favour the wealthy and connected. It explains why we have so many awful journalists in prime positions. The poor and marginalised are not in the class of people who are able to take unpaid internships. And a lot of employers won't even look at your application if you haven't done one.

    I donít understand what was so wrong with his tweet about illegal street vendors. We couldnít give people living wages so we have to turn a blind eye on illegal street vendors?

    I thought the bigger blunder yang made was sharing the story of giving away his dog on national pet day because one of his son developed allergic reactions to the dog...

    My wife would definitely not vote for a guy like that! He definitely picked a wrong day to share that story... actually my wife would be pissed to hear such story any day. One does not abandon pets! Abandon annoying kids maybe, but definitely not pets!

    One thing I can agree with you (or maybe just your wife?) on. That's a lifetime commitment.

    I agree with my wife too, Andrew Yang definitely screwed up on that one. For sure I wonít tell my wife about that story if Andrew were to run for the WH again... for sure she would black list him for that!

    Iím just glad my daughter isnít allergic to anything. Itíd definitely be torturous too see your kid and pet becoming incompatible like that...
