Jansing could have asked Jones if it was fair to describe those who are promoting various reopening plans as selfish while she has a job that is great for telework, but instead she agreed. Returning to weddings and helpfully reading from Jones’s article, she declared:
Yeah, and you point out, I’m going to read part of your article, “Call the weddings stupid or selfish if you want, I can’t argue with either characterization. But they aren’t aberrant. There’s nothing more American than a gaudy, expensive party that kills people. The very stories America tells about itself encourages all of us to be selfish, to shift the cost of our actions onto others.” So, I mean, is this in many ways, do you think, Sarah, just sort of a commentary on America in general and not necessarily just this pandemic?
