Las Vegas Mayor Carolyn Goodman (I) got into a heated exchange with CNN’s Anderson Cooper on Wednesday over her push to reopen the city’s economy amid the coronavirus pandemic.
“You’re encouraging, I mean, hundreds of thousands of people coming there, in casinos smoking, drinking, and touching slot machines, breathing circulated air, and then returning home to states around America and countries around the world,” Cooper said. “Doesn’t that sound like a virus petri dish? I mean, how is that safe?
“No. What it sounds like you’re being an alarmist,” Goodman fired back. “I’m not. I’ve lived a long life. I grew up in the heart of Manhattan, and I know what it’s like to be with subways and on buses and crammed into elevators.”
