The lieutenant governor of Texas thinks “lots of grandparents” may be willing to die of the coronavirus to stop a possible economic recession that could affect their grandchildren’s lives.

While appearing on Monday’s Tucker Carlson Tonight, Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick said at-risk patients, specifically older grandparents, are willing to risk dying of COVID-19 if it means businesses and employees could resume their normal economic routine. Fox News host Tucker Carlson opened the interview by reading a message he received from Patrick earlier.

The article goes on to state the following:

“So I say, let’s give this a few more days or weeks, but after that, let’s go back to work and go back to living. Those who want to shelter in place can still do so. But we can’t live with this uncertainty,” Carlson read before asking Patrick to expound on his message.

“I just think there are lots of grandparents out there in this country like me (I have six grandchildren), that what we all care about and what we love more than anything are those children, and I want to live smart and see through this, but I don’t want the whole country to be sacrificed. And that’s what I see,โ€ he told Tucker.
