Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Sunday, May 10, 2020

A recent Morning Consult poll found that [Donald] Trump's approval rating on the handling of the coronavirus was lower with seniors than with any other group other than young voters. And Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr., the presumptive Democratic nominee, in recent polls held a 10-point advantage over Trump among voters who are 65 and older. A poll commissioned by the campaign showed a similar double-digit gap. The demographic shift is fairly new, and officials said they attributed it at least in part to Trump's coronavirus briefings, at which he often dispensed conflicting, misleading and sometimes dangerous information that caused alarm among a vulnerable population.

Since Trump has decided to kill these people in pursuit of personal fortunes, I can see why they don't like him that much.

I am a senior. I won't vote for a gangster who wants me to sacrifice my life for their economy just to improve Trump's chances in the election. No senior citizen should vote for a man that will happily let them die to improve his economy and that is exactly what this evil vulture wants to do.

This individual has done incredible damage to this country-he can't be gone soon enough. I find it revolting that we also have to subsidize his retirement and protection.

Maybe they don't want to sacrifice themselves on Trumpy's alter to the Gawds of the economy.

How on earth could Trump possibly be putting you at risk.

I don't like the guy either...but don't be an idiot.

By encouraging followers to violate Trump's own Administration's guidelines.

It's like you flunked macro, and decided to skip the science class on "asymptomatic contagion".

The same way Merkel didn't put old people in Germany at risk.

Why are you unable to understand other people's point of view? Do you have a diagnosis for this?

Trump Goes Without Mask Around WWII Vets drudge.com

Are you really unable to comprehend that Trump put those seniors at risk?

Or do you agree with Trump, there was no risk because he was "very far away from them" and "they're so pure, it will never happen."

And if everyone followed Trump's leadership, and did not wear a mask around seniors, would that put seniors at risk or not, MadBomber?
???

Many who are dying of Covid complications did not need to die.

When this is over I bet we will be able to actually calculate how many Americans Trump will have killed with his ignorance, incompetence and corruption.

Speaking of calculations,

That "Flu kills 50,000 people a year" or whatever number is also calculated.

It's not the actual number of people who died and had a positive flu test. That number is like half of the annual estimate.

Which is why it's very reasonable and almost certainly true to say our COVID-19 deaths are already being dramatically undercounted.

Probably why he's in such a hurry to kill them all off.

That's an answer I suppose...even if it is ab intellectually lazy answer.

I don't know how many times I have to say this. You can literally be an obese 90 year old with diabetes and high blood pressure, but if you're using your nugget and being safe, you can reduce your odds of exposure to near zero. And if you do that, it really doesn't matter what everyone else is doing.

So it's kind of like with COVID, there is a monetary incentive for hospitals to report that someone died of COVID, even if it may not have actually been COVID that killed them?

Senior citizens vote how they want, but must've loved Cuomo arbitrarily sending thousands of them already infected with CIVID-19 to nursing homes to kill thousands more! Such a great event!
