Corona Joyride


cjones10102020

Everything Donald Trump and his goons have said about the coronavirus has been wrong.

Last February, probably as part of her audition for the job of White House Spokesgoon, Kayleigh McEnany said, “We will not see diseases like the coronavirus come here, we will not see terrorism come here, and isn’t that refreshing when contrasting it with the awful presidency of President Obama?”

SpokesBarbie has excelled at her job of lying to the American public, but it’s really hard to gaslight that the virus hasn’t “come here” when you have the fucking virus. Also, the coronavirus did NOT come here during President Obama’s two terms and the majority of terrorists in the United States make up a part of Donald Trump’s base. Fact.

Last week, after Hope Hicks tested positive, Kayleigh went ahead and gave a press briefing. She claims she wasn’t aware of Hicks’ positive test for the virus, but we know Kayleigh lies. Now, three journalists who cover the White House tested positive for the virus in addition to two of Kayleigh’s staffers.

Just like Donald Trump, who went ahead and attended a New Jersey fundraiser after knowing Hope Hicks had tested positive and after being in her presence, Kayleigh has disregarded the safety of others in favor of selfishness, arrogance, and stupidity.

Donald Trump and his White House have no regard for anyone’s safety. They and Trump’s doctors refuse to tell us when Donald Trump last tested negative. For all we know, he went to that fundraiser after testing positive. For all we know, he went to last week’s debate after testing positive or at least knowing he should be in quarantine.

In fact, everyone in the White House and all who attended the super spreader event that was the Rose Garden ceremony for Amy Coney Barrett should be locked up in a bubble. They should all be in quarantine. Jared, Ivanka, and even the vice president, that ass-kissing sycophant who sleeps with a woman he calls “Mother,” should be in quarantine.

At the debate, Melania Trump, who now has the virus, and the Trump offsprings, Ivanka, Don Jr, Eric, and Tiffany, all arrogantly refused to wear masks. They arrived to the debate conveniently too late to be tested. They were offered face masks, which they refused. They should not have been offered face masks. They should have been kicked out promptly on their spoiled trust-fund baby asses.

McEnany continued to talk to the press after Trump’s positive diagnosis. She claimed it was safe because she had tested negative and not wearing a mask was her personal choice. I’m not saying she deserved to catch the virus, but let’s say catching it was her “personal choice.”

And if Mark Meadows, who also spoke to the press catches it, it’ll be the chief-of-staff’s personal choice. If the Trump kids catch it, it’ll be their personal choice too.

It was Chris Christie’s personal choice. Christie once said there is an acceptable number of deaths for the pandemic. Now, not wanting to be one of those “acceptable deaths,” has checked himself into a hospital after testing positive.

The Trump administration is still disregarding the safety of others. There has been no contact tracing from the Rose Garden super spreader event. They did not contact the Biden Campaign about the positive tests beforehand. They didn’t contact reporters after Wednesday’s press briefing. The New Jersey governor’s office is frustrated in that for their contact tracing for the Trump fundraiser at Donald Trump’s shitty golf resort (where previously, the biggest worry was acquiring bedbugs), the Republicans and Trump Campaign have only given them a list of names of the over 200 who attended the potential super spreader event. They’re not providing contact information.

And Donald Trump hasn’t just disregarded his own safety (out of stupidity) but also that of those who protect and serve him. He put the lives of Secret Service agents in jeopardy for his Sunday joyride so his supporters could see him cruising around outside Walter Reed hospital for a minute. He put their lives in danger again by going back to the White House last night. He’s putting the lives of everyone who works in the White House in danger. A lot of those workers are non-political and serve the president of the United States, no matter who he is or from which party.

Donald Trump has put appearance ahead of safety. Donald Trump’s first job is to protect the American people. With the infected including himself, Hope Hicks, Kayleigh McEnany, Chris Christie, Trump campaign manager Bill Stepien, Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel, Kellyanne Conway, three Republican senators, Mike Lee of Utah, Thom Tillis of North Carolina, and Wisconsin’s Ron Johnson, Trump’s personal assistant Nick Luna, and University of Notre Dame President John Jenkins, Donald Trump can’t protect those closest to him. Donald Trump failed to protect himself.

And Kayleigh McEnany, who has spent the past eight months lying and spreading misinformation about the virus, who promised on her first day that she’d never lie to us, and who said Donald Trump would never allow the virus to enter this country, has now had the virus enter her. Her Dear Leader, who she professed so much bullshit faith in, failed to protect her.

Donald Trump refused to protect the nation from the virus. Instead, he spread false information and waged a war against face masks and those who were fighting the virus. He touted fake remedies like Hydroxychlorquine and told us time and time again it’s what was needed to fight the virus…while not using it himself after he caught the virus.

Did Donald Trump deserve to catch the virus? Kinda. He did ask for it. He challenged it. One thing he deserves is being behind Joe Biden 16 points in the latest poll.

And Donald Trump, for failing to protect this nation leading to over 210,000 deaths, deserves to be thrown out in November. Afterward, Donald Trump deserves to continue to receive the best medical care our government can offer him…in prison.

Covid Darwin Winners


cjones04212020

Do you know when the Confederate flag definitely isn’t about heritage? When it’s in Michigan. I stole that from somewhere I can’t remember.

A bunch of Michigan yokels gathered tightly together to protest Governor Grethen Whitmer’s coronavirus restrictions. Call me a cynic, but I think it’s less to do with public safety and personal liberty and has more to do with partisan fucknut politics. You’re not using science or even economic indicators when you’re flying Confederate flags and MAGA signs. Or in a lot of cases, when they’re carrying semi-automatic rifles.

In case you’re a Republican, Michigan is in the northern United States and fought FOR the United States AGAINST the Confederacy. These Covidiots have more in common with Jefferson Davis than Abraham Lincoln.

There were also protests in North Carolina. While a lot of these people are wearing masks, they’re not social distancing. Forget whether they’re breaking laws. They’re endangering, not just themselves, but all of society. There were several children present at these protests. While people are arguing over whether or not to open schools, taking your kid to a MAGA rally is definitely a bad idea. To be fair, that’s a bad idea even when there’s not a pandemic.

The protests in Michigan started in cars but participants soon got out and began chants of  “lock her up” and “we will not comply.” In the process, they blocked traffic, including an ambulance. They proudly named their ambulance-blocking protest “Operation Gridlock.” Here’s a free tip: Good guys don’t block ambulances or expose their children to a virus that’s killed over 33,000 people.

Michigan has been hit hard by the coronavirus. They’ve had over 28,000 cases, third-worst in the nation.

These protests are being encouraged by Fox News and other right-wing outlets that cater to shitweasels and MAGAts. While protesters are waving Trump signs and downplaying the seriousness of the pandemic, they’re ignoring that Donald Trump has acknowledged the pandemic is serious and real…after initially calling it a hoax himself. Maybe they think Donald Trump is winking at them as he keeps arguing about opening the country. I think he is too.

These protesters and other conservatives don’t care about lives lost. They are willing to kill you for their dogma and political agenda. Hell, they’re risking their children’s lives for their bullshit. Will Donald Trump attend their child’s funeral?

Take Knutt Wittkowski, a doctor who has argued against stay-at-home orders or any intervention with the coronavirus. He’s the fucknut brigade’s newest champion. He argues that we should have just ignored the virus and let it kill people. That way we’d develop what’s called “herd immunity” and the virus wouldn’t have had a prolonged duration. He said only the elderly should have been isolated as the virus doesn’t affect children or young adults that bad.

Remember, his name is “nut.” We have prolonged the duration of the virus. We did that because cycling it through our system quickly would have overwhelmed our medical community and it would have killed a lot more people. That right there tells you conservatives will kill you for their agenda. Knutt originally predicted only 10,000 people would die in the United States from the virus. He and other conservatives believe 10,000 deaths is an acceptable price to pay for the economy and oh yeah…he was wrong.

Knutt said WITHOUT stay-at-home orders or any intervention there would only be 10,000 deaths. So far with the stay-at-home orders, we’ve had over 33,000. Remember, back in February and even early March, these idiots were comparing it to the flu and arguing that H1N1 was worse as that virus killed over 12,000 people. You don’t hear them making that argument anymore. H1N1 killed 12,000 people in the United States in the span of a year. In three months, coronavirus has killed over 33,000. And, we’re still in the first wave.

Here’s a free tip: Don’t take medical advice from Republicans. Don’t listen to people who have been wrong this entire time. People like Sean Hannity or anyone else on Fox News. People like the president (sic) of the United States who called it a hoax and is now hawking medicine most doctors say will kill you.

Since Donald Trump calls this a war and likes to sign shit, he should be required to hand-write a letter for each family who has lost someone to this virus. I’d accept that the letters wouldn’t be legible and written in crayon, but at least it’d be some effort from him.

Nobody likes these stay-at-home orders. We all agree they suck. We all want to go outside and frolic. But conservatives are making it worse. Governor Whitmer said, “The sad irony here is that the protest was that they don’t like being in this stay-at-home order, and they may have just created a need to lengthen it, which is something we’re trying to avoid at all costs.”

Exactly. They’ll keep spinning around in circles and breathing on each other until they each win a Darwin Award. I’d be fine if they only took each other out. Unfortunately, we’re sharing a planet and environment with them. They shop at the same grocery stores we do (OK, we all don’t go to Walmart). Their kids go to school with your kids. They’re not good at logic or at putting two and two together. If you want these stay-at-home orders to end, then stay at home.

Not only are they endangering our nation but so are the people and right-wing conspiracy outlets egging them on. Will Donald Trump issue a public statement telling his followers to stop? If he was responsible, he would have already done it.

It just comes down to the ugly truth that Republicans will kill you for their agenda. Stay home and do what most Trump supporters do. Bitch and spread bullshit and conspiracy theories on the internet.

Watch: Did you know chemtrails created the coronavirus?
