Imagine if the dumb ass energy Fox News and GOP politicians were putting into mask hysteria was put into talking their followers into getting the vaccine. But that would be admitting Covid is real, which could damage Trump's 2024 run, I guess.
I think the GOP and Fox aren’t exactly clear on what it means when a writer says you have to, “kill your darlings.”
I'd like someone to explain to me how what Fox is doing is any different than if at the height of the AIDS crisis CBS news did stories night after night glorifying unprotected sex.
I still can't quite believe how much Covid showed the lethal lengths this GOP will go to just be the opposite of whatever Democrats believe.
Reagan's response to AIDS was shameful, but he didn't encourage the exact behavior that transmitted it.

Standing up for the Constitution and liberty, unless we think we can get someone fired.
Of course Ben Shapiro.
The giddiness in their feed at going after Wilder, followed by the joy at getting her fired is really something to see.

Guess the party.
This always turns out well.
Kind of amazing that she didn't end up White House reporter for OANN.

Now if you ask Ron to trust the Russian government, different story.
Has anyone ever checked the company Johnson brother-in-lawed his way into running for any, shall we say, suppliers from the world of transnational crime ? Maybe there's a Trumpy explanation for his odd loyalties.

It's going to be delightful to see Trump and his children all deny they had any idea how the business with their name on it was being run.
And we creep one step closer to disheveled Trump showing up to a court date gripping tightly to a walker.
Gee, I wonder if the MAGA base will swallow it when Trump claims he’s an innocent victim of that greedy Weisselberg?

Imagine seeing this through your office door.
A lot of people responding to the harassment video don’t seem to realize this was before she was elected. This was her pitch to voters to put a lunatic in the house.

Time to re-examine that “Newsom killed his economy and DeSantis saved his with the same Covid results” thing.
Florida 167 deaths per 100k. California 158 as of today. Which when you multiply out by these big state populations is a lot of people alive in CA that wouldn’t be if Newsom followed the DeSantis example.
And I know there’s so many rumors of Florida cooking numbers that have been vehemently denied, but I would like to know if it’s true that visitors from out of state who were infected thanks to a wide open tourist industry weren’t counted.
