Just as the first US deaths from Covid-19 were occurring, Trump said it is no worse than the flu, it’s not about to trigger a recession, and the pandemic nonsense is a hoax. The free press and Dems are just making stuff up to make him look bad.
Fast forward to 4/4/20 when O’Reilly is on Hannity’s show and the conversation turned to Covid-19. Adept in propoganda as they are, they must have concluded the whole thing was not quite a hoax, but they couldn’t really own up to the seriousness of a pandemic. O’Reilly chose the easy way out and said the number of deaths was way overstated, and those few who died were on their last legs anyway. They yucked it up a bit, congratulated each other on how smart they were, then went home.
This might be a good opportunity for them to broadcast from one of the ICUs in the Bronx. Where the ER personnel are starting to lose their shit, where they have two people per ventilator and they have rented refrigerated tractor trailers for the bodies. No masks, no Hazmat suits, and bring your tool Trump. After all, it’s a hoax. Maybe go make fun of some of those miscreants on their last legs. Or it might be a good time to actually own the garbage that comes out of your faces. Attend funerals of some of the front line workers, maybe see what real human beings are like. But that would not change anything. There are no “It’s a Wonderful Life” moments, and that is how they will go to their graves. I can’t change that, but that is probably a good thing anyway. Despite my own defects of character, I have to believe I am nowhere near that monstrous, nor could I be around people who were. You guys got what you wanted. Choke on it, motherfuckers.
