257 new deaths. Hey Floridians, you may want to impeach your governor for, you know, murder.
The Florida Department of Health reported 257 new COVID-19 deaths in Florida on Friday, marking the fourth consecutive day the state has surpassed its own daily death record.
The state’s total amount of lives lost to the virus since the beginning of the pandemic in March now nears 7,000, with 6,843 Florida resident deaths and 123 non-resident deaths. July alone saw 3,409 COVID-19 related deaths recorded – nearly 50 percent of the state’s total COVID-19 deaths.
So Congressman Covid has really done everything possible to be a superspreader. Not only did he refuse to wear a mask, insist that his staff did not wear a mask, then gave his staff the news that he was positive in person, but after finding out his results, one of his first stops was to go to the gym.
According to @RepSpeier, Gohmert knew he had the virus and continued to put others in danger by going to the member’s gym and even sleeping in his Washington D.C. office. https://t.co/jlcmS5QbIx
A public health expert in contact with Trump’s COVID task force said that, early on, a member of Jared Kushner’s team felt that because the virus had hit blue states hardest, a national testing plan was unnecessary and would not make sense politically. https://t.co/nnhK1clWTo
What happens when Trump refuses to accept an electoral loss? Professor Lawrence Douglass from Amherst College has written a book about this looming constitutional crisis. It’s a lot more complex than having a Marine guard kicking Trump’s ass out onto Pennsylvania Avenue.
In case you have forgotten what a presidential speech sounds like:
And of course, Congressman Covid will be taking advice from the alien dna/demon semen doctor. What a time to be alive.
Man in Texas believes covid is a Democratic host. Throws party for family. 14 members end up sick and another one dies from covid. As somebody who has avoided all unnecessary human contact since early March, fuck these idiots. Make stupid choices, win stupid consequences. What pisses me off about these idiots is how many people they are infecting who may have no choice about interacting with them. From the grocery clerks to the medical staff where a good deal of these party revelers ended up, or any other people who are just doing their job and have to risk their health dealing with these idiots who are not taking this pandemic seriously.
1,444 more dead Americans from covid today. We’ll be over 154,000 total sometime today. I don’t know how much the daily death toll would need to rise before the GOP decided to take a pause on their current course, or when Democrats would do more than just let the GOP keep fucking up. 3,000 a day? 5K?
The US Economy contracted by 33% in the 2nd Quarter. This is the worst plunge ever recorded which goes back to 1947. So, another thing to add to Trump’s resume.
Trump is now tweeting that the election should be delayed because it’s not safe to vote. Weird how he thinks it’s perfectly fine to open up schools but let’s delay the election, which already has safeguards in place (mail-in voting), when he is getting crushed in the polls.
With Universal Mail-In Voting (not Absentee Voting, which is good), 2020 will be the most INACCURATE & FRAUDULENT Election in history. It will be a great embarrassment to the USA. Delay the Election until people can properly, securely and safely vote???
