Not a joke.
Do we at least give him points for self-belief? Nah.

Somebody, I forget who, had this image in their heads of the American far-right surfacing to take one desperate last gulp of air before plunging into the depths. I know I said the GOP might drop Trump to try to salvage their careers, but of course it's also possible they will do everything they can to gain four more years (in which they can sabotage democracy further), because they know that the GOP as it is might not win too many more elections if they lose 2020.

We already have Republicans stating, in so many words, that the only way they can win elections today is by cheating.

One Trump supporter: "So uh, why aren't the media listening to *these* scientists?", where *these* scientists propose to resume life as normal.

Fun fact: the Trump supporter is Herman Cain, who probably won't resume life as normal anytime soon.

What three Trump supporters said at the FL rally yesterday:
Quote:
A mask can do more harm than good to an individual. People are vulnerable and they can faint because carbon dioxide is going back into the system.
Pure stupidity. Does he think doctors and nurses faint from wearing masks? They must be dropping like flies all day long at hospitals. This man obviously just doesn't think. No wonder he supports Trump.

Quote:
All the numbers I have read are down and I've seen that the flu has taken more people.
It's pretty clear where this man is getting his (mis)information.

When asked if the president would put on a mask, if she would, the Trump supporter responded:
Quote:
I would put it on.
This is why Trump is responsible for the excessive number of Covid deaths we've seen in the US. It didn't need to happen. True leadership would have prevented thousands of deaths. The wrong person at the wrong time.

"What Are Trump Supporters Saying about Covid-19?"

After his rallies between now and a couple of weeks from now, they'll be saying:

*cough*
*cough cough*
*cough*
*cough cough cough*
*gasp*
*cough*
