Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

America is on track to lose 180,000 lives to coronavirus by the start of October, according to new data from experts modeling the pandemic at the University of Washington in Seattle, though an embrace of masks could decrease the damage.

Remember when is was supposed to be 60,000? I think 180,000 is a low estimate.

America has become too stupid to save itself.

Nah,too low, brah, I'm thinking more like 220,000-250,000. Americans WINNING. Trump must be SO PROUD.

Too low.

This could all be alleviated if the moron in chief had the balls to do what is right rather than what is convenient.

Trump drowns himself in a world of fantasy, an alternate reality. It may have Orcs and Fairies but it doesn't have COVID-19.

Trump is empty. Appetite is all he has. No empathy,no creativity,no imagination.

He is the ultimate republican. Self absorbed and venial.

He spent 20 minutes talking about walking down a ramp that took maybe 30 seconds to do, because he had to reassure his folks about his less than obvious perfection.

Moloch would be proud.

We are currently at 120,000

There are 98 days until Oct 1.

There are ~900 deaths a day from covid.

98 x 900 =88,200

88,200 + 120,000 = 208,200.

And that is considered a low estimate.

It's simple math. Not fuzzy math. Not even exponential math.

Multiplication and Addition will do.

With the GOP governors showing no indication of returning to sound public health policy there is zero reason to expect the death rate to remain flat.

#6 Except the vulnerable will start to thin out which will tend to lower the death rate. Unfortunately I think we are heading halfway to worst case scenario. I don't know how many dead it will take for cult45 to realize the truth.

"I don't know how many dead it will take for cult45 to realize the truth."

If it hasn't sunk in by now, it never will. In fact, I think we should stop wasting our time. We can't "fix" everybody. We can only fix our self.

Republican strategist, Rick Wilson, wrote a book called "Everything Trump Touches Dies."

Little did Mr. Wilson know how prophetic those words would be.

It's not a problem though, because Biden said the 120 million people have already died from Covid. Go back to the basement Joe. No actually come out into the light and keep talking

Funny how you'll deride Joe for a gaffe but give Trump a pass for 15,000 lies.

Yes you do. You just don't want to admit it to yourself. I don't blame you for that.

There is no number of dead Americans that will get Trumpy to realize or admit to the truth.

Currently *960 Americans die everyday because of Trumpy's denial.

It's simply Criminal Negligence. Adding more dead won't change that.

So to update our figures 98 x *960 = 94,080

94,080 + 127,000 = 221,080

But remember to multiply 221,080 by 10. Because experts think we are underestimating our numbers by 10%.

And the daily death toll could go to 3000 if the surge continues out of control.

Texas governor is so worried about offending Trump that he can barely get the words out of his mouth. So he very carefull says "pause" the opening of businesses.

What a freekin' coward. Covid-19 is spiking out of control in Texas and he's worried about offending Trump.
