I am sorry to hear that and I hope your wife is doing better!
The mental gymnastic excuse the MAGAts use to not care about this is because “Trump is just being a good businessman by making all his goods overseas” which opens up a whole other excuses like “he wasn’t president when he started selling the products” etc.

Yep, and people can also use a vacation day to create a 3-day weekend, or turn a 3-day weekend into a 4-day weekend.
