“Trying to help people understand what’s going on right now is like going back into a burning building…”

The following post about “what’s going on” was posted on X/Twitter by Manda on February 10, 2021:
 
“Trying to help people understand what’s going on right now is like going back into a burning building to pull someone out. Only to have them keep punching you in the face and demand evidence that the building is on fire. Even after they admit they can see the flames.”

The saying has been printed on many images. The saying probably refers to the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic.
 
“Amanda Inglis” was credited on Facebook by Will Markham on February 17, 2021, but usually no credit is given. The saying was popularly posted on X/Twitter by Elon Musk on March 10, 2024.
