      “Five Americans who flew by private jet to the Mediterranean island of Sardinia were refused entry to Italy on Wednesday due to new EU travel restrictions on countries with high coronavirus infection rates, police told CNN….

      After around 14 hours on the ground, the whole group decided to leave Cagliari on their jet the same day and headed towards Birmingham, England, the police said.
      It was unclear if the travelers planned to disembark in the United Kingdom. The UK requires US travelers to self-quarantine for 14 days.”
      So, even filthy rich Americans can’t get into Europe. Maybe they will stop supporting and enabling Trump……nah.

      Surely they knew there was a ban on U. S. travelers to the EU. As usual, they didn’t think it applied to them.

      That could be interesting for private planes and yachts needing fuel.

      @fasttense They could just as easily have been wealthy Democrats. There are a lot of them, you know. Plus, they were from Colorado, which means they were probably either fanatical Republicans or the worst kind of hypocritical liberals. I lived in Colorado for 20 years; rich folks there are usually one extreme or the other.

        In my experience rich fake liberals and Republicans are both assholes.

      The rich are a separate breed.

      They are called 'human' rights not "if politicians do not feel threatened" rights. Many politicians see national sovereignty/security as more important because they protect their power and wealth. Human rights often do just the opposite.

      National issues (slavery/racism, income inequality, pandemics and pathetic health care, weak unions) are not solved with more states' rights. Global problems (climate change, migration, trade, war, pandemics) are not resolved with more national sovereignty.

      Good on the Italians for denying them entry. Wonder if they would have turned away a well known A-list actor or a billionaire like Bill Gates. Seems to me there are always exceptions to every rule.
