Earlier today I watched as the Washington Post released an article attacking Texas Senator John Cornyn because he had nothing good to say about China and their ability to produce viruses and disease.
The article attempted to corner Cornyn on a few things. For one, his claim that various viruses that don’t have Chinese origin are actually from China. They also hit him on his words about the kind of foods that China consumes, including snakes. WaPo’s response to that was to remind Cornyn that in Texas we have something called the rattlesnake roundup where we milk snakes for their venom and then fry them up and eat them.
