New COVID-19 cases in past week:
Vietnam – 5
Taiwan – 9
Yemen – 10
New Zealand – 25
White House – 34
This says it all. Doesn’t it?
Not to mention that Trump tried to cover up the viral outbreak in the White House by asking members of his staff to keep their diagnosis a secret.
Yesterday, 11 states – all in the midwest – set new all-time daily records for COVID-19 cases.
The United States is averaging 50,000 new COVID-19 cases per day, and close to 1,000 Americans are dying every day. Thousands of others are currently hospitalized, and those who survive will battle the after-effects of this disease for months and years.
America has 4% of the world’s population and 20% of COVID-19 deaths. Pence was asked in Wednesday night’s debate why Americans per-capita death rate is the highest in the world, and he dodged the question.
He dodged it because the answer is inconvenient:
An administration that is incapable of containing a viral outbreak in their own White House is incapable of managing this crisis on behalf of the American people. Americans are dead because in lieu of mandating masks and nationwide contact tracing, Trump lied to the American people. He knew that this virus was airborne in January, but he said nothing. He promised the American people that the virus was under control. He assured us that it would be gone by April. He spent months touting the effectiveness of hydroxychoroquine, which proved to be useless against COVID-19. He proposed bleach and UV light as possible therapeutics. He repeatedly and continues to make fun of journalists and political opponents who wore masks.
Now he infected. Contagious. Likely spreading the virus to those around him.
Killing people. Again.
