Doubling down on insults, slung far and wide.  Do you still not know What Happened?

I don’t see that in the numbers.  They all tend to converge in their per capita case load.

Doubling down on using death to promote your political views?  Do you still not know What Happened.

I made it clear: the virus doesn’t know or care who is in charge or not in charge.  It crosses borders, all of them.  No form of government has been able to stop it.

You have expressed contempt for the constitution openly.  Now it feels like you are hoping the virus can help overthrow it.   I am betting on the constitution.  Human rights are not set aside for a virus.


I recommend you start a political party, the anti-constitutionalists.
