Rev. Jesse Jackson in Dallas to help Ebola patient

DALLAS – The Rev. Jesse Jackson is in Dallas Tuesday to make sure Ebola patient Thomas Eric Duncan is getting the best medical care possible.

Rev. Jackson said Duncan’s family asked for his help. He recently tweeted that “he should not be shunned” and to “kill the disease and not the person.”

“Thomas deserves the love and the best medical treatment American can afford as has happened for all the other Americans who have contracted this terrible disease,” he told FOX 4. “He must be treated as a patient with all the human rights deserved, not as a criminal.”

Duncan moved to Dallas from Liberia about a week before he got sick. Although Liberian officials said he lied on his travel forms when leaving the country, Jackson believes he did not know he was exposed.

The reverend said Duncan simply tried to help a dying woman and then came to Dallas to get married…

Not surprised this twit would get involved.
