Rebecca Solnit: Trump's team reportedly believed that coronavirus would hurt Democratic states -- and Democratic governors - worse. But the virus does not discriminate

How Jared Kushner's Secret Testing Plan "Went Poof Into Thin Air" (July 2020)
www.vanityfair.com

...Most troubling of all, perhaps, was a sentiment the expert said a member of Kushner's team expressed: that because the virus had hit blue states hardest, a national plan was unnecessary and would not make sense politically. "The political folks believed that because it was going to be relegated to Democratic states, that they could blame those governors, and that would be an effective political strategy," said the expert....

Kushner and team should be put on trial for the deaths of all the people who died from COVID.

So should Trump.

The child-raping orange jizzfart and his slumlord son-in-law killed 600,000 Americans. The GQP is a death cult.

lol

The cl0wns forget that the better educated you are the more likely you are to be a liberal. It's true.

Most of us on the blue side of the aisle have a basic understanding of how viruses spread, understand how science has lengthened our lifespan, and are willing to exercise caution because we understand enacting common-sense measures isn't an affront to our freedom.

You know... freedom ain't always free.

Remember when the pandemic first hit us and the images of corpses stored in refrigerator trucks and backhoes digging mass graves... right here in the USA?

Here we go again because you cl0wns prefer life as a petulant pissant to wearing a mask or taking a needle in your arm. We know it's not the vaccine that worries you... it's the needle that might make you owie.

Negligent homicide on a massive scale.

I can't wait for a lawsuit to produce transcripts of conversations in which they decided blue state lives don't matter.

#8 probably one of the most dishonest and idiotic posts ever posted here. There should be a virtual shrine built to honor the ultimate stupidity that it took to post that. And no, I won't plonk, at least right now. The comedy gold some of these fools provide encourages me to keep my plonk numbers low.

"If he cancels in person school before the midterms, the Dems will face a voter backlash never seen before in US history. "

Worse than Jan 6th?

Yeah. I don't think so. Good luck with the revolution Comrade.

Gonna be tough to overturn the next elect from a sickbed in the hospital.

Odds are will see you in an ICU soon.

I don't know if the President has the authority to do that, and I really doubt he has the desire.

You're right. Cancelling "in person school" would be up to a state governor. Someone like DeSantis, for example, wouldn't do such a thing. His number of dead children would sink like a rock and that wouldn't look good on his application for a job in Trump's 2024 re-election.

We need to start treating Republicans like the traitors they are.

It is the exact opposite. The Dems hyped up covid to shut down the economy and hurt Trump in the last election.

Hardly. Only an ignorant stooge would push this conspiracy theory garbage.

The measures taken last year were standard public health mitigation tactics. That they aren't being followed and COVID is running rampant is a pretty clear indicator of why they're important.

They bet, wrongly, that they could get covid under control with the vaccine and people would be happy to be allowed to go back to work. Instead, covid has disrupted their plans and now Biden looks incompetent on the virus and the border.

He only looks incompetent to those who would think he was incompetent no matter what.

And what they underestimated is the abysmal stupidity of Americans. If 40% of the population wants to be petulant children there's not really much Biden can do about it, is there?

His popularity is sinking quickly and it will only get worse as virus case count grows (among both vaxxed and unvaxxed) and he pushes new shutdowns and eternal mask mandates.

Eternal mask mandates. What a moron.

If he cancels in person school before the midterms, the Dems will face a voter backlash never seen before in US history.

Reiterating just how abysmally stupid Americans are.

Well, at least that 40% that are making this as painful as possible.

I can see the GOP ads now - Dems said it was fine to ignore social distancing / shutdowns for BLM riots but not so you can go to work to feed your family or educate your kid.

A narrative pushed by ignorant ------- for a large portion of the last year.

Do you have anything to say that isn't ignorant, uninformed garbage?

They also killed 600,000+ Americans and blamed it on covid in order to hurt Trump.

Thanks for the laughs, Archer.

Sterling,

"The Dems hyped up covid to shut down the economy and hurt Trump in the last election."

They also saw this as an opportunity to implement their political agenda.

All Trump had to do was pretend he gave a shht about Americans and he could have won the election through the EC again.

Instead.

The fat fkkk distracted the nation while hundreds of thousands of Americans died.

I get it.

Trump is your type of Daddy, and you're thirsty.

Keep drinking that TrumpCream.

Maybe you have your tinfoil hats on a little bit too tight.

Take a few rubber bands off.

Also cut out the ---------- asphyxiation stuff, that causes brain damage.

Regardless how you talk about this situation, all the things that happened about masks and mandates and vaccines...and Trump and bleach...blah blah.

At the end of the day Democrats are milking this for all it's worth.

That's the world of politics.

Right or wrong...that's just how politicians think.

Do we see Democrat's screaming to force people to stay home and shut down the economy with spreading on the rise again?

No one is even considering it.

Biden is beginning to sound like Trump and Democrats now applaud him.

And at the end of the day, what's it worth?
What's more vaccinated Americans worth to you?
You really think the GOP has "just another point of view" on this?
