You should be first in line for making such a ridiculous, irresponsible suggestion, Danny Boy.

Agreed! I’m willing to expose lt gov. Patrick, trump, McConnell, Mnuchin, and the GOP senate to the corona virus in order to protect our economy. Gear them up and send them to NYC hospitals to treat the infected!

Who in their right mind voted for this stupid person?

In a way he is right, if we are still staying at home into June we really might have another depression on our hands. This will make life very hard, but eventually we will recover. However, if we as a society are at a point where we are willing to sacrifice our Parents/ Grandparents so that we can continue to live in abundance... I don't know if there is any recovering from that. That is not a society I want my children to grow up in.

Don't you Texans think its time to vote him out of office? Surely Texas can do better than him. Also time for Mr. Abbot to go.

Why worry about non-existent Obamacare "death panels" when you have Lt Gov Dan Patrick with the Real Thing?

I don’t believe the governor is aware of the millions of immunity- compromised people who would also be endangered, nor do I think he speaks for all of us seniors.

Waiting on faithful Trumpette Tom to come spin this. Come on Tom you can do it!

Plenty of republicans support appalong BS but once they see an apalling statement like that they balk because it overwhelmingly targets them. If you are a republican know that this is how those immigrants at the border feel with your overwhelmingly dishonest arguments against their lives.

I hope Donnie takes his advice and saves his grandchildren. If you could die of ignorance he would already be dead .

A statement so dumb the sycophants haven’t mustered up ridiculous replies yet.

Wonder if anyone sees the irony that based on the demographics watching that show he told half the viewership to die for the economy.

But but but I thought Republicans were pro-life, hypocrites.

It's ok if YOU and YOUR grandparents dies. This clown will receive the best medical care money can buy. KEEP VOTING REPUBLICAN.

Dan Patrick is a true Trumper. Making millionaires richer literally matters more than human life. You can't have my senior friends because you want to buy a new car, you soulless ghoul!

Well, if LT Gov, aka "I want old people to die!", feels sooooo strongly about this, then maybe he should follow the example set by Buddist Monks. So go out to the State Capital, set yourself on, to prove how committed you are!!
