You might have noticed that Republicans have a LOT of dumb things to say about COVID…
Congress person Marjorie Taylor Greene took to Twitter and suggested cancer is airborne, writing,
“Every single year more than 600,000 people in the US die from cancer.
The country has never once shut down. Not a single school has closed And every year, over 600,000 people, of all ages and all races will continue to die from cancer. Since #COVID19 tracking has started, 780,000+ people have died in 22 mo [months] in the US, but more than 1 million still died of cancer. More have died in 2021 from covid than 2020 in spite of Gov [government] mandated widespread vaccines, mass public masking, & trillions spent. It’s time to take a different approach based on the facts. Covid predominately targets obese & older people.
Shutdowns, masking, and vaccines are not stopping covid, that is just government control. Ivermectin, monoclonal antibodies, & other treatments are saving lives.”
The virus exists in droplets. Masking is a proven way to protect oneself. Ivermectin, a livestock dewormer, really is NOT. MTG has refused wear a mask on the job, racking up $60,000+ in fines.
She has compared requiring her to wear a mask to the Holocaust.
“You know, we can look back at a time in history where people were told to wear a gold star.
And they were definitely treated like second-class citizens, so much so that they were put on trains and taken to gas chambers in Nazi Germany, and this is exactly the type of abuse that Nancy Pelosi is talking about.”
And Rep. Matt Gaetz went on TV to flat out say that people would be better off contracting the virus ASAP. He told CNN,
“The best vaccine we’ve found is Mother Nature’s vaccine. It’s contracting the virus…”
And Senator Ron Johnson is worried that COVID has been “overhyped”. Fauci shot back,
“How do you respond to something as preposterous as that? …
Overhyping Covid? It’s already killed 780,000 Americans and over 5 million people worldwide.
So, I don’t have any clue of what he’s talking about.”
And there’s your stupid news update!
MTG says Speaker Pelosi wanting Members of Congress to get vaccinated and if not to wear masks is “exactly the type of abuse” as murdering Jews in gas chambers during the Holocaust and David Brody nods along. No follow up. pic.twitter.com/inXfD8UBiG— Jake Tapper (@jaketapper) May 22, 2021
