Warning that “schools can turn into an Amazon fulfillment center for coronavirus,” the comedian concluded that the only way to prevent household infection “is if parents and kids have no contact. I mean no communication, no affection whatsoever. No touching. Basically, Trump’s relationship with Eric.”
