REVEALED: Trump Wasted $.5 Billion On Ventilators We Won’t Even Get Until After COVID-19...

Much of the cruelty and corruption, not to mention sheer ineptitude, of the current administration flies under the radar. This next story would have gone that way too, but for the fact that plague, like pestilence, war and famine, rears its ugly head with regularity and COVID-19 is the 100-year-cycle deadly virus. It was anticipated that something like it would come along in the fullness of time. Much was learned from the last pandemic in 1918 and from other, more recent outbreaks of lethal viruses, notably SARS and Ebola. Therefore, the United States, under Barack Obama, had prudently planned for just such an event as we are experiencing now — and Donald Trump’s administration shortstopped and botched those plans, resulting in costly and deadly results. New Civil Rights Movement: A new report from the U.S. House Committee on Oversight and Reform found that the Trump Administration repeatedly delayed an Obama-era order from the health-technology company Philips for 10,000 ventilators, wasting half-a-billion dollars for machines that won’t even arrive until September 2022. According to the report, in 2014, the Obama Administration signed a contract with Philips to add 10,000 ventilators to the nation’s stockpile by June 2019. Though Philips delayed the fulfillment until November 2019, had they been held to that deadline, the nation would have had plenty of ventilators for when the coronavirus epidemic started in March 2020. [emphasis added] However, the Trump Administration granted Philips three extensions. “On January 21, 2020, when the first coronavirus case was reported in the United States,” the report states, “Philips approached the Trump Administration about accelerating the delivery of ventilators under its existing contract.  The Trump Administration ignored this opportunity, and for six weeks, it did not respond to Philips’ offer.” When  Peter Navarro — Assistant to the President, Director of Trade and Manufacturing Policy — and other senior officials in the White House negotiated a new contract with Philips, they ended up scrapping the Obama-era terms and agreed to pay almost five-times the price set under those terms. Now that is not only the synopsis of yet another example of how coronavirus has been frightfully bungled under Trump, it is the template for the gross incompetence that is the norm in this administration. Peter Navarro is no kind of an economist or administrator. The man does not belong in government. He is the punch line of jokes that real economists and financial people make. If you have not yet hit the link to the press release issued by the House Committee on Oversight and Reform do so now. It is subtitled, “Staff Report Details Inept Negotiations Led by White House Official Peter Navarro” and dated July 31. Read how, “While the Trump Administration paid $15,000 per ventilator, some small purchasers, buying as few as one unit, were able to negotiate prices as low as $9,327 per unit.” Now read between the lines here. In January, Philips approached the administration about accelerating delivery of ventilators — and they were ignored. This was most probably due to the fact that in January, Trump’s “policy” with respect to COVID-19 was to characterize it as a hoax. Or, alternatively, hoax or no hoax, it was believed that it would only affect blue states, and that was just fine, as we learned from the Vanity Fair bombshell yesterday. In all events, nothing was done until March, when, incredibly, the Trump administration screwed things […]

Elizabeth Warren Calls Jared Kushner Complicit, Others Accuse Him Of Genocide and Murder Over...

Isn’t it lucky for Jared Kushner that he has wife Ivanka to instruct him how to “find something new?” Because if anybody needs to make a career change, it’s Jared. Calls for the “de facto president” to resign have been coming fast and furious since the Vanity Fair bombshell, describing how Kushner nixed a national coronavirus testing program because to do so was politically advantageous for his father-in-law. The blow back has been leviathan. Jared Kushner is more than incompetent – he’s complicit. He was willing to let Americans die in Democratic-led states because it might help his father-in-law’s politics. In any other administration, Jared Kushner would be investigated and fired.https://t.co/Umv34NQYsY — Elizabeth Warren (@SenWarren) July 31, 2020 Absolutely, But in an administration headed by Donald Trump and with Bill Barr running the Justice Department, don’t hold your breath. And Warren’s not. Although bear this in mind: remember when Kushner told Trump that Google was “working day and night” to put together a website to facilitate testing — and Google didn’t know anything about it? It was later reported that Trump viciously lit into Kushner and Kushner didn’t recover for several days. It is a remote possibility that Trump would dump “my star” Kushner. Don’t expect it, but never count anything out in Trump world, which is a political video game on acid, always has been. The Trump Administration made a decision not to fight the pandemic because it was an "effective political strategy" against Democrats. Let's call it what it is and stop playing around. Genocide. This is genocide. 1/https://t.co/W5NTysgv62 — Jared Yates Sexton (@JYSexton) July 31, 2020 Wait, they planned to let Democrats in blue states die? That was the Trump administration's calculation? Do Republicans have a reaction to this? Is this the thing that's enough to stop Agent Orange? https://t.co/jwniUSL5Fo — Michael J. Stern (@MichaelJStern1) July 31, 2020 Trump encouraged and accelerated covid deaths in blue states as political retribution. He literally murdered democrats and minorities to cull his opposition ahead of the election. This is public record now. https://t.co/03MIImqgXN — Patrick S. Tomlinson (@stealthygeek) July 31, 2020 This is not hyperbole. 155,000 Americans are dead and this statistic changes daily. There are 4.62 million confirmed cases in the United States. And who knows how many of us are running around asymptomatic and we can’t get tested — because of Kushner and Trump deciding to play a long shot and watch the virus, “disappear…like magic?” People are calling for this to go before the World Court at the Hague. This is not a joke. Governments that willingly enable the killing of their own citizens for political purposes is a gross human rights violation. Jared Kushner’s decision to politicize the Coronavirus response has cost tens of thousands of lives. The Hague should investigate. https://t.co/CBzNIgZ5e7 — Joel Rubin (@JoelMartinRubin) July 31, 2020 Why is Jared Kushner not being investigated for tens of thousands of cases of negligent homicide? Then again, as this was a political attack, that proves malice and intent to create death. That sounds like enabling mass murder to me.https://t.co/xwK27NxVfX — Dr. DaShanne Stokes (@DaShanneStokes) July 31, 2020 Trump has touted himself as a “wartime” president. Unfortunately, the people he’s at war against is us. And no, losing the election doesn’t qualify as accountability. Over 100,000 Americans are dead […]

Trump Rages At Jim Clyburn About COVID-19 the Same Day It’s Revealed WH Scrapped...

Like a 50’s rock station, the hits just keep on coming to Donald Trump, and it’s not even noon. James Clyburn chairs the House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Crisis. He displayed a chart comparing European countries, where the virus is contained, to the United States, where the virus is surging and called out Trump’s administration for its ineptitude. That, of course, incensed Trump, who then picked up his tweet box so he could show this uppity congressman a thing or two. …..Our massive testing capability, rather than being praised, is used by the Lamestream Media and their partner, the Do Nothing Radical Left Democrats, as a point of scorn. This testing, and what we have so quickly done, is used as a Fake News weapon. Sad! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 31, 2020 Now, about that praiseworthy testing effort: Vanity Fair is reporting that in March, three weeks after the WHO declared COVID-19 a global pandemic, a purchase of 3.5 million tests for an amount owed of $52 million was made to a client noted as “WH” and one million were delivered. The delivery, curiously, was not made to the White House, but rather to the embassy of the United Arab Emirates. But that becomes not so curious a fact when you find out that Jared Kushner was behind it. The secret, and legally dubious, acquisition of those test kits was the work of a task force at the White House, where Jared Kushner, President Donald Trump’s son-in-law and special adviser, has assumed a sprawling role in the pandemic response. That explains the “WH” on the invoice. While it’s unclear whether Kushner himself played a role in the acquisition, improper procurement of supplies “is a serious deal,” said a former White House staffer. “That is appropriations 101. That would be not good.” Though Kushner’s outsized role has been widely reported, the procurement of Chinese-made test kits is being disclosed here for the first time. So is an even more extraordinary effort that Kushner oversaw: a secret project to devise a comprehensive plan that would have massively ramped up and coordinated testing for COVID-19 at the federal level. Yes, Virginia, there was a time when there was “an aggressive and ambitious national testing plan.” It’s not just a myth. And Jared Kushner, and his pals from college, compromised a vaunted “impact team” described as a “frat party descended from a UFO.” Kushner believes that he is some kind of bureaucratic Jedi knight, imbued with remarkable powers of leadership coupled with philosophical insight. “I learned very early on that when you try to work around an existing government structure, it rarely works. You have to take the machinery that exists and empower it rather than recreate it.” And here’s another one, “The president also instructed me to make sure that I break down every barrier needed to make sure that teams can succeed,” Jared is our life coach, empowering us in our hour of need — in his head. So Jared and the other Hardy Boys set about coordinating a national oversight system for supplies like masks, test kits, and the establishment of a widespread virus surveillance  system. It’s been described as “not rocket science” and likened to a system such as Fedex or UPS, which only work as well as they do because all the dots are […]

Louie Gohmert Tests Positive For COVID-19, Worries Abound That He Infected Bill Barr

Irony has been dead for quite some time and we miss her, but Lady Karma has stepped up in her place. Texas Congressman and anti-masker Louie Gohmert has tested positive for COVID-19 and so that throws the kabash on his plans to accompany Donald Trump on his trip to Texas. Plus, as an extra added bonus, Bill Barr will now be tested for coronavirus, because he was paling around with Gohmert in the hall before they went into the congressional hearing. ACTUALLY… here is a video of AG Barr and Gohmert. While Barr arrived with a mask, it was off when he walked into the hearing room, so both men were not wearing masks at this time. pic.twitter.com/xm6wuq6QvW — Olivia Beavers (@Olivia_Beavers) July 29, 2020 My criminal law professor described the difference between negligence, gross negligence and criminal negligence thusly: “It’s the difference between being a fool, a damn fool and a goddamn fool.” Gohmert is the third category of fool, flying blindly in the face of catastrophe, somehow believing himself to be omnipotent. The virus can never touch him, the voices in his head tell him. And he’s not the only GOPer in the House that is flagrantly irresponsible. Jerry Nadler had to correct a few others at Tuesday’s hearing. Politico: “I would remind Mr. Jordan, Mr. Biggs and Mr. Johnson to stop violating the rules of the committee,” Nadler said, referring to Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), Arizona Rep. Andy Biggs and Louisiana Rep. Mike Johnson, three GOP lawmakers. “To stop violating the safety of the members of the committee. To stop holding themselves out as not caring by refusing to wear their masks.” “Is it permissible to drink a sip of coffee?” one of the members asked. “It is not permissible,” replied Nadler. In a tweet, Nadler wrote, “I want to wish ⁦@replouiegohmert⁩ a full & speedy recovery. When individuals refuse to take the necessary precautions it puts everyone at risk. I’ve regularly instructed all Members to wear their masks and hope this is a lesson by all my colleagues.” This will only exacerbate Trump’s arrival in Texas. The Editorial Board of the Houston Chronicle has a few choice words for him, as he wings his way to Texas. “When you visited Dallas back on June 11, Texas was leading the stampede to reopen for business, spurred on by Gov. Greg Abbott’s aggressive plans and your administration’s false assurances that the outbreaks were ‘under control/ At the time, the United States had reported a little more than 2 million confirmed cases and almost 114,000 deaths. Texas was reporting about 85,000 cases and 2,000 deaths. Seven weeks later, as Air Force One descends on the Lone Star State, the United States has more than 4 million cases. America is closing in on 150,000 dead — nearly the population of Midland.” “One important thing you could do on your visit, Mr. President, is to make an unequivocal commitment to improved testing, social-distancing and getting your followers in the Republican Party to give up their rebellion to Gov. Abbott’s face-mask order,” the Board writes. “We are almost certain you won’t, but that would be a good start to something resembling leadership.” Once again in the Trump administration, the bar has been lowered. Texans aren’t asking for leadership, they’ll settle for “something resembling” it. Well, at […]

Reporter Questioned Trump On His ‘Expert’ Doctor Who Believes In Alien DNA and Sex...

Donald Trump has a sadz because he had a very bad day. This female woman reporter person, who doesn’t know her job — her real job, which is to be ornamental and please men — kept bugging him about this swell doctor he found, who is a “big fan” of  hydroxychloroquine. And she doesn’t believe in wearing masks or any of that stuff. Donald though he might now have a chance to move those 68 million doses of the useless drug that he ordered up. Plus — can’t this dumb broad get it? It’s time to announce a cure for COVID-19, so Donald can take a victory lap and get reelected. And this doctor was going to help him. Now he’s screwed — again. If you didn’t see it, Trump retweeted a video by “Dr.” Stella Immanuel, who is a pediatrician who believes “children need to be whipped,” and religious minister, who operates both her medical clinic and her church,”Firepower Ministries” out of a strip mall in Texas. She posted a video on Facebook, which went viral in a matter of hours and which was declared a must-see by Donald Trump, Jr. and then retweeted by Trump senior. The video touted hydroxychloroquine as a cure and dismissed the use of face masks. It was eventually taken down by Facebook for “sharing false information” about the virus, after racking up millions of views in a matter of hours. And Dr. Immanuel was not pleased. She threatened hellfire, while meanwhile Donald Trump was digging his own grave deeper. Daily Beast: “Hello Facebook put back my profile page and videos up or your computers with start crashing till you do,” she tweeted late Monday night. “You are not bigger that God. I promise you. If my page is not back up face book will be down in Jesus name.” The president also shared tweets attacking Fauci on Monday night, despite insisting recently that he had a “very good relationship” with the doctor after White House officials publicly blasted him. At least one of the accounts the president retweeted on Monday night was from a follower of QAnon, the conspiracy theory that alleges a “deep state” cabal of pedophiles is plotting against Trump. At last perusal, Immanuel’s page was still down and Mark Zuckerburg hadn’t turned into a frog or been struck by lightning and the same was true of his platform. Not questioning the power of the Almighty here, merely Immanuel’s ability to invoke same. Twitter followed suit deleting Immanuel’s video. But not without the media taking a hard look into Immanuel’s other, pre-coronavirus medical claims, notably that the most common causes of medical problems in this country are sexual visitation by demons and alien DNA — and that was before the “White Coat Summit” where her speech went viral, even though she was being dragged from the podium, but Breitbart got it uploaded so Trump could retweet it anyway. (Just keep reading, even if you think you’re losing your mind. You’re not.) Daily Beast: Immanuel, a pediatrician and a religious minister, has a history of making bizarre claims about medical topics and other issues. She has often claimed that gynecological problems like cysts and endometriosis are in fact caused by people having sex in their dreams with demons and witches. She alleges alien DNA is currently used in medical treatments, and that scientists are cooking up […]

Lincoln Project Ad “Memories” Depicts America’s Loss From COVID-19 ‘It Didn’t Have To Happen...

This is a different mood than the other Lincoln Project ads. It shows America at its best and most joyful, when our lives are calm and fruitful. We’ve been robbed of many of these moments by the Trump Virus. It’s not the “Chy-nuh” virus, as the racist in chief calls it, it’s the Trump virus. And that’s how it will be remembered in history, I suspect. Donald Trump is a fool and a failure. And his folly and ineptitude will spread coronavirus to at least a million Americans. We’ll probably hit that mark, if not by the end of the year, then by early Spring, is my unhappy prediction. What I have found out with predicting the next Trump disaster, is that, if anything, it usually ends up worse than whatever the projection of the moment is. Trump’s virus has negatively impacted millions of Americans. And he couldn’t care less.

Beyond Parody, Larry Kudlow Can’t Even Wear A Mask Right

Larry Kudlow knows as much about the respiratory system as he does about the economic system, which is to say jak schitt. Kudlow stood in the driveway of the White House this morning and, we guess, wanted to make a statement about the importance of mask wearing since Donald Trump said it was patriotic. Or something. 🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️ over your nose, Larry, over your nose. https://t.co/1XaVbNyTAa — Bradley P. Moss (@BradMossEsq) July 27, 2020 The vengeance of Twitter was swift and sure. The mask is under his nose. Like wearing a speedo with your penis hanging out. He is a moron. https://t.co/BDlAeGM8ub — Spiro Agnew’s Ghost (@SpiroAgnewGhost) July 27, 2020 Now this article is tagged to Larry Kudlow on Twitter. As a public service, we are providing Kudlow this tutorial, free of charge, just in case the image given in the tweet above didn’t sink in. Kudlow clearly has problems with the simplest of concepts. Seriously. pic.twitter.com/dY7hjUAzG0 — Alex Heidarian 🇺🇸 (@Akheheh) July 27, 2020 There, Larry, do you have it now? Or do you need Max or Murf to come over to the house and show you? This is epic stupidity, but it is routine Kudlow. Just yesterday a couple of economists were on CNN saying that Kudlow has been dead wrong about everything the past six months. Raw Story: In an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper on Sunday, Larry Kudlow claimed that Americans are doing great and the country is in a “V-shaped recovery.” The economists called it absurd. “Kudlow is a clown,” said the University of Michigan economics and public policy professor, Justin Wolfers. “He hasn’t gotten a single thing right in at least six months. He told us this wouldn’t hurt. It has. He told us we would bounce back to work. We’re not. He just said — and patently misrepresented economists in saying that economists think we’re on a path of a self-sustaining economy.’ There’s a shutdown, you lift the shutdown, and automatically part of that reverses. The big economic question is, at the end of that, how much damage have you done? The longer it draws out, the more damage we do. With the resurgence of the bug, it’s drawing out how long the the economy is remaining in hibernation. And as a result, we’re seeing an increasing number of firms not survive that hibernation. So, we are going to bounce back somewhat, but not back to where we were. And the longer it takes, the more pain it will exact and the worse the longer-run recession is going to be.” I have tried to decide which is the bigger idiot, Kudlow or Peter Navarro and I can’t decide. I mean, that is some choice, between those two mental amoebas. I doubt if they can do arithmetic, how did they end up in economics? One of them would be remarkable in any administration, but both? And they’ve got plenty of company, starting with the poster children of incompetence, Jared and Ivanka. But beyond that, what I cannot figure out, is HOW do these people get these kinds of jobs? I am beginning to think that American universities should give degrees in nepotism and cronyism, because those are the fields one needs to be successful in, to be successful in modern America. That much is crystal clear. pic.twitter.com/1Am6weNJkD — ScottG […]

Stop Trying to Convert Trump Supporters

Here’s something we didn’t know about ourselves, bedwetting libtards that we are. Ready for some hard-won self-knowledge? We are pedophiles. All of us. Even if we don’t realize it, we are. And, most of us are cannibals. Really. Yum, yum. When a band of illegal aliens raped and bludgeoned a white high school girl to death, and dismembered her with machetes, we helped cover it up. Every one of us. But that’s okay. Donald Trump knows all of our names and what we did. We will all be properly punished. Christ on a skateboard, Max, where did you get this loopy shit? Apparently it’s what millions of Trump supporters believe. Not dozens. Millions. Noted author, documentarian and essayist Jeff Sharlet recently published a lengthy, powerful and disturbing piece in Vanity Fair titled “Inside the Cult of Trump, His Rallies Are Church and He Is the Gospel.” Eek. One of the recurring bits in Sharlet’s essay — which, if you haven’t already read it, you should take a break from my piece and read — is him being dumbfounded at some individual Trumper’s insane pronouncements on this or that issue, such as “most socialists are cannibals,” only to find out that dozens of the Trump cultists he interviews believe the same thing. Like most cults, they have their own vocabulary and tropes. One enthusiastic Trump cult follower took a break from posing in front of a mirror in a Trump mask (proclaiming “I’m him!” and giggling in glee) to raise the mask, drop to his knees, and start sniffing the ground. “Creepy Joe!” another one immediately proclaimed. They knew immediately what the guy was doing. Many, many grandfathers like to bury their faces in the hair of their grandchildren and make snorting sounds. It makes the children giggle. Joe Biden has been known to take it a step further and nuzzle the hair of grown women — not a great choice to make. But in the hate- and Trump-maddened minds of the Trump cultists, Biden telegraphs his actual intentions every time he does, well, anything — he is, they claim, a “child sniffer” who likes to…you know, I don’t even want to complete that sentence. You and I know that Biden is a doting old grandpa who took too long to realize that his hugging and nuzzling behaviors were sometimes inappropriate, and that’s it (regardless of what lies a former staffer tried to spin about him). He isn’t the child-mauling savage the Trumpers paint him as being. But that’s only one tiny aspect of the barking mad construct of lies and bullshit the cultists occupy. According to them, the entire purpose of the Democratic Party is to cover for a massive child-trafficking operation that operates on a worldwide basis. Think “Pizzagate” with as many exponential numbers behind it as you care to throw. Doesn’t matter how stupid the theory is, or how thoroughly it’s been debunked. The act of debunking it actually proves its viability, because in their minds, 2 + 2 = HA HA I HAVE YOU NOW, STUPID LIBTARDS. But there’s more. This is where the religious context of the Trump cult becomes apparent. Trump is The Chosen One, choses either in spite of his worldly flaws or because of them, whichever narrative works. In contrast, Democrats and liberals are either […]

The Daily Briefings Don’t Matter. Trump’s ‘Tone’ Doesn’t Matter. None Of It Matters, Because...

How low can we go? How low is the bar that if Donald Trump stumbles out behind the podium, and slobbers his way through a purely political, self serving coronavirus briefing without uttering a profanity, or starting a race war, the media falls all over itself about Trump’s presidential tone. Trump has never been presidential, isn’t presidential now, and never will be presidential. And never was there a worse time for the media to start normalizing him than now. Trump is holding these briefings for one reason and one reason only. His polling numbers are in the toilet. Apparently, somebody either in the west wing or the campaign took their split pea sized balls out of the glass by the bed, put them back in their pouch, and read Trump the riot act. Basically, he has about a month to convince the people of this country that he takes the coronavirus seriously, and come up with a comprehensive plan for dealing with it by the time of his convention acceptance speech, or he may as well just go back to Mar-A-Lago after Labor Day and play golf full time. It is far too little, and far too late, simply because the Trump administration has made their disregard and contempt for the coronavirus all too obvious by now for anything to change that. Trump blew his coronavirus response from day one. Because Trump has no regard for science, or the people who practice it. From day one Trump treated the virus as nothing more than another strain of the flu. When experts like Fauci, Birx, and Hotez warned that this virus would be incredibly difficult to deal with, Trump regarded it as nothing more than a supercharged flu bug. When cities like Seattle, San Francisco, New York, Philadelphia and Trenton were ravaged, Trump didn’t care, it was a coastal elite virus, centered in blue states, nothing that would give his red supporters pause. And when the virus took a bite out of deep red states like Arizona, Texas, Georgia, Florida, Oklahoma and South Carolina, Trump blindly trusted his GOP Governors to handle the virus in their states better than the Democratic Governors did. But then Trump made the mother of all miscalculations. And he made it because of his mental outlook. No matter  what advice Trump has been given by experts like Fauci, Birx, and Hotez, he is mentally incapable of seeing the coronavirus as anything more than an especially virulent case of the flu! And what happens when the weather gets warm? Why, the flu dies off of course! That was Trump’s fatal miscalculation. Trump was willing to give the virus free rein through the spring, on the assumption that by the second or third week of June, the heat would kill it off, as the heat does to almost any flu virus. This would allow Trump to reopen the economy, which he did in red states with the June timeline in mind, jump start the economy, hold mass rallies to his hearts content, make a triumphal acceptance speech at a packed arena in North Carolina, and rife his leadership wave to a crushing election win. If in fact the virus did resurface in the fall, it wouldn’t do so until October, and would start slow, as scattered outbreaks until after he was reelected and able to ignore it for four […]

Stephen Miller Vehemently Denies Grandmother Died of COVID-19. His Uncle Shows Death Certificate

Stephen Miller is not a well liked guy, including by members of his own family, and it stands to reason. He started selling out their values before he got into government and started selling out ours. Miller’s grandmother recently passed away from COVID-19 and his uncle shared the story on Facebook. Miller found out about it and became incensed, apparently. The White House issued this statement, per Mother Jones: “This is categorically false, and a disgusting use of so-called journalism when the family deserves privacy to mourn the loss of a loved one. His grandmother did not pass away from COVID. She was diagnosed with COVID in March and passed away in July so that timeline does not add up at all. His grandmother died peacefully in her sleep from old age. I would hope that you would choose not to go down this road.” Miller’s uncle is David Glosser, the brother of Miller’s mother. He’s a retired neuropsychologist who blames Donald Trump’s “lack of a response” to coronavirus early on for the deaths of tens of thousands of Americans who might otherwise have been spared. Who knows how high the death toll will go before all is said and done? Estimates are already at 800,000 dead by the end of the year. Glosser, a former health professional, posted his mother’s death announcement on a public Facebook page. Responding to the White House statement, he writes in an email, “Keeping the tragic facts about COVID deaths of our countrymen and women, young and old, from the American public serves no purpose other than to obscure the need for a coherent national, scientifically based, public health response to save others from this disease. My mother led a long, satisfying, productive life of family and community service. She had nothing to be ashamed of, and concealing her cause of death to offer ‘privacy’ to me, our family, her hundreds of relatives and friends, does nothing to assuage our regret at her loss.” Moreover, Ruth Glosser’s death certificate—which her son shared with Mother Jones—lists her cause of death as “respiratory arrest” resulting from “COVID-19.” Informed that Ruth Glosser’s death certificate cited COVID-19, the White House spokesperson replied, “Again, this is categorically false. She had a mile [sic] case of COVID-19 in March. She was never hospitalized and made a full and quick recovery.” Denying that the cause of Mrs. Glosser’s death was COVID-19 and insisting she only had a “mild” case of the virus and “made a quick and full recovery” is not only insulting to the attending physicians and to David Glossier, who should know what the woman died of, since they were there; it is consistent with the conspiracy theory among MAGAts that COVID-19 is just the flu. And that it’s being blown up into something larger by the forces of evil. That would seem to be the official White House stance, as it was once the official Fox News stance, that COVID-19 is a “hoax” promulgated solely to derail the efforts of Donald Trump, who was doing a simply splendid job of everything before the Chinese decided to persecute him by “letting it escape,” and then the Democrats got hold of “it.” Meanwhile, in Texas, triage efforts are being made in the parking lot, deciding who to try to save from the […]
