(This is why Republican politicians refuse to take the virus seriously. They see dead minorities as a feature, not a bug.)
Y'all think Lt. Dan Forest would be running around maskless having his super-spreader campaign rallies if it were *his* voters dying from it? #cmonson
Trump / Forest / et al saw an opportunity to lynch people without a rope

That's why you had the "ReOpen NC" astroturf campaign, the Yapping Yam's "LIBERATE MICHIGAN!" tweets, and all the other plum damn foolishness
Trumpists will get you sick

Then stick you with the bill

Then laugh all the way to the ballot box
Exactly right. That's a big reason why you see a disconnect between politicians and their voters

For example, 88% of Republicans say they wear masks Always or Sometimes when leaving home; only 12% say Rarely or Never (nationalgeographic.com/history/2020/1…)
This is a photo from the Brett Kavanaugh hearing. Two years ago.

Try again. Be less wrong next time.
If it actually "came from a place of hurt and people needing to provide for their families," they'd have been advocates for wearing masks – a necessary precursor to reopening

But they weren't. They were opposed to both closures *and* health precautions.

Anyone know why someone back in the late 1800s / early 1900s would have gotten the Roman numerals 4 through 11 engraved on a ring? 🤔

Google has not helped
That was my first thought. Then I looked up the verse and I hope not 😂

FutureSpouse to me, at 11:33am: "Can you get me a bandage? I cut my leg while shaving"

Me to FutureSpouse, at 12:02pm: "Can you get me a bandage? I cut my finger... cutting an apple" 🤦‍♂️

Perfectly normal Sunday
We already have 3, one in each bathroom 😂

Along with an assortment of gauze, tapes, disinfectants, etc etc
I've had an apple almost every day for 2-3 years now

0 cuts until October 2020, and have managed to slice myself 2x in 2 weeks 🤦‍♂️

I didn't think you could tweet something dumber than your takes on libel and slander
