Chicago Cubs co-owner Todd Ricketts is President Trump’s baseball whisperer
Chicago Cubs: Other Ricketts siblings may be better suited for this task
There’s no right or wrong answer here because people need to work or will starve and will eventually lose everything they have and become homeless if they cannot work. The other side of the coin is a harsh argument that says if we don’t stay closed until we have mass-testing or a cure or a halt to the spread could mean death in large scales.
So I’m not sure what camp each of the Ricketts children are in at this point. Tom Ricketts has said the virus is bigger than the Cubs and so he is in the ‘careful camp’. I’m not sure about Todd but considering he joined the Trump’s counsel as an advisor on bringing back the country, that might be telling in itself – he’s in the economic camp.
And Laura Ricketts?
Laura Ricketts, who heads Cubs Charities, recently gave a tour to Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot of the transformed Wrigley Field which has been turned into a massive extended Lakeview Pantry for people who need food during this pandemic.
Maybe Laura Ricketts should be advising Trump.
