Dying From Stupidity

Trump's alternative reality propaganda is killing people:

South Dakota ER nurse Jodi Doering has seen some disturbing examples of COVID-19 denial as she works through the pandemic.

After a Twitter thread of her experiences started circulating, Doering appeared on CNN's New Day on Monday to describe how South Dakota hospitals are overwhelmed with coronavirus patients — and yet some of them don't believe the virus they have is real. While many patients are "grateful for the care they receive" from nurses, some COVID-19 patients spend their last moments refusing to call family and friends because they're convinced they're going to be fine, Doering said. "Their last dying words are, 'This can't be happening. It's not real,'" Doering recalled. In some cases, patients even insist they have the flu or lung cancer to avoid acknowledging the coronavirus.

People are being aggressively stupid in much of the country. It's akin to some guy who has a BAC of .25 and then gets killed in an accident; It's hard to muster much sympathy for him, but he killed other people on his way off this mortal coil. So it is with the Covidiots; they're infecting other people because they are living in an alternative reality where the virus isn't real (and Trump won in a landslide).

This pandemic is functioning like a global SAT test, and America is scoring about 450.

You are aware by now that Jodi Doering is lying, right?

0_0, citation, please. Show me where she said that what she wrote was a lie.

(No, I'm not going to look for myself. You made the assertion, it's on you.)
