Personally, I thought it would be James Woods that would be the first Hollywood MAGA domino to fall at the merciless hands of Covid-19. I am not rooting for that. It just seemed to all line up, age, ignorance, and a sheer unrepentant MAGAtude. Although at this writing, I could not find any specific opinions from Woods on the vaccine.
Swanson, 51 is not young or old, but definitely edging towards a higher risk age. And now she is now asking for prayers. First some background. She is known for being vocally against the vaccine and shall we say, eyebrow raising opinions on what might strengthen an immune system in the face of a global pandemic.
Swanson apparently truly loves candy corn. Some do. And we embrace our differences because love plus variety makes the world go ‘round. To each their own. I personally think candy corn is more useful as a tire plug but hey, there is no right or wrong here, except, well in this case there is-
She also has no idea, after all this time, after all of the available information, just how Covid works.
Kristy Swanson, best known for playing the titular character in the 1992 Buffy the Vampire Slayer movie, has been hospitalized after contracting COVID-19. Swanson, who has been a vocal Trump supporter and Fauci critic, tweeted that she’s battling COVID-related pneumonia and is now being treated with oxygen. She gave a few more details in later tweets: “Just [a] little more clarification & update, I was just at the tail end of my Covid diagnosis when it jumped into my lungs. So they are treating me with Baricitinib & blood thinners so I don’t clot.” In tweets, the actress has criticized vaccine and mask mandates.
By mentioning “the tail end of my Covid diagnosis” apparently she thinks Covid is an hourly worker that punches the clock, works a set amount of hours, then if it hasn’t killed you by then you are good. No, no, no Mrs. Swanson. This is not how it works at all. Covid enters your body, does whatever it wants for as long as it wants versus how well your body can protect itself, viral load, any number of things. There is so much ignorance to unwrap here my head hurts. Partly because long Covid is miserable, partly because MAGA has permanently raised my blood pressure.
So Kristy Swanson, is sick. She might die. That is a real possibility. And I am 100 percent certain if she does die, there will be no epiphany, no self-awareness of her foolhardiness, just a wave of affirming self-pity that will somehow convince her it was President Biden’s fault. I hope that doesn’t occur. I hope she does survive, and learns the error of her ways, and lead people down a sane medical path.
But you chose to roll the dice on Covid, Mrs. Swanson. And it has been known from the beginning, to be loaded.
