200,000 “nobodies” dead?
…is just the beginning. By hiring Scott Atlas to run the COVID response team, a RADIOLOGIST (knows how to do an MRI) with ZERO experience in epidemiology who promotes “herd immunity” (or what Trump calls “herd mentality,” which actually refers more to the blind obedience of Trump’s cult worshippers). Actual epidemiological experts are horrified by Trump’s embrace of “herd immunity” and warn that it would enable Trump to offer up THREE to FIVE MILLION real people as human sacrifices on the germ-infested altar of greedy corporate stock market gains. But hey, no one else matters to Trump but HIMSELF.
How inconvenient for the stock market Trump hoped to use as a phony indicator of economic success, since he had already undermined all the other indicators, such as slowing job gains, new record budget-busting deficits (yeah, Republicans never cared about that any more than they cared about standing up to Russia or not confirming judges in an election year or their fake “Christianity” or any of their other fake principles) or destroying the REAL economy that affects real people, the Gross Domestic Product (GDP), which is now plummeting at a rate of decline the greatest ever recorded, even dwarfing the worst numbers of the Great Depression.
How inconvenient to the re-election Trump needs in order to stay out of both state and federal prisons — unless, upon losing an election and unable to steal it, he makes a Nixon-Ford style deal to trade a pardon for the “honor” of going down in history as the 46th president, however briefly, to at least make the federal part go away.
And Trump has so much in common with Nixon, not the least of which is the prospect of being taken down by a combination of recorded audiotapes that they knowingly allowed and spoke into, and the hard-nosed investigative journalism of Bob Woodward.
