Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, July 10, 2020

At least 26 members of the Mississippi state legislature have contracted coronavirus, the largest outbreak in any state among lawmakers. House Speaker Philip Gunn and Lt. Gov Delbert Hosemann are among the members of the majority Republican body to have tested positive. Many lawmakers didn't wear masks at the Capitol or had them pushed below the chin, AP reports. "When you get in a fishbowl of people, you're at risk," said Democratic Rep. Tom Miles, who tested negative but lost his 60-year-old mother to coronavirus in May.

They got nothing to worry about because legislators are so youthful and healthy.

The more Rs that get this virus, the better. Maybe the survivors will start believing in science.

Too many blowhards putting out hot air.

Pro tip: those masks don't help control COVID when they're worn over the eyes...

Too bad our whole country is governed by the same kind of morons that govern Mississippi.

Pres Trump's ~it makes me look like the Lone Ranger~ comment notwithstanding.

Mock God long enough by not using common sense like Jesus said we all should and eventually you reap the Whirlwind.

I won't mock these guys because they might have got the virus when they met to do the right thing and change their state flag.

It is becoming a Republican plague. Who needs science when you have these self-serving chimps?

If it only affected science deniers I'd have no problem with it. Unfortunately those morons can kill others with it.

Right winger science deniers getting slammed with the Corona Virus. LOL. Darwin at work.

Halabaluyah!!!! The Orange Antichrist is working hard to spread COVID-19 among his minions. Those racist deserve every bit of it.

RepubliKKKunts rather catch COVID-19 and die rather than lose in the November election when the Mango Mussolini goes down too. Gotta love that movie as it plays right before our very eyes.

Gotta wonder, with so many of those fine people in that relatively small population contracting COVID-19, if they're also swapping bodily fluids.

They'll go down like Richard Rose the Army vet who talked a lot of poop that wearing masks was a hoax and hype. Well he contracted it and died. Now his friends who laughed about it like he did want compassion for him because the virus is real. Google the story. A veteran who served in Iraq and Afghanistan dies on Covid-19 not a combat wound. Why isn't trump and his henchmen speaking of that?! Wake the f$(k up people you're killing yourselves and others around you. Maybe if you cared about your life you MIGHT care about the next person.

So what you're saying is the god walks around with a clipboard and whistle keeping a tally?! Then blows the whistle on you when your time is up?! Lol

That, my friend, is the problem in a nutshell.

I would gladly let them kill themselves off and thereby decrease the surplus population of morons.

Unfortunately, they are trying to take me with them and I am not ready to go into that "dark night" just yet.

And if I get Trumpy's virus I am not going quietly.
