No matter what your politics, if you cheered, mocked, or posted some lame “gotcha” quip on social media following the news that President Donald Trump had tested positive for coronavirus, we’re pretty sure you are officially a bad person. We hate to be the ones to make that call, but it’s just an objective fact. If you’ve allowed your animus towards the BAD ORANGE MAN to grow so deranged that you can’t even feel sympathy for him as a human being, you’ve lost your way. Step away from the computer, turn off your phone, and go outside for a while, because you need to reconnect with your humanity.
We’re talking specifically to former staffers for President Obama, Hillary Clinton, and Elizabeth Warren, all of whom made time in their busy schedules to go on social media and throw stones at Trump after his coronavirus test was confirmed.
“It’s been against my moral identity to tweet this for the past four years, but I hope he dies,” wrote former Obama/Clinton staffer Zara Rahim.
Hope that made you feel better, Zara.
“I’m totally blown away by the almost instant conspiracy theories coming from the LEFT,” Rahim continued in another tweet. “I don’t get the upside of faking a positive result 33 days before the election *if* he’s interested in a 2nd term. Announcing quarantine to a base who think COVID is fake, WHY? *Let me be clear* I put absolutely nothing out of the realm of possibility with this f***er, but as a strategist maybe I am blind to the f***ery.”
Yeah, we’ve seen some of those theories as well, and we agree with Zara that they are absurd. However, it’s equally ridiculous to say that Trump voters think that the coronavirus is “fake.” Sure, there are some of those kooks out there, but they are a minority of a minority. Unless you want us to start calling Antifa and science-denying anti-vaxxers Joe Biden’s base, you should probably slow your roll.
Anyway, here’s former Obama official Andy Slavitt with his hot take on the news: “He must be quarantining because he doesn’t want to pass the hoax on to anyone else.”
Guess we see why he’s in politics and not comedy.
“Praying Our President doesn’t die of the preventable illness that he inflicted upon millions of Americans,” said smarmy former Warren campaign staffer Max Berger. “I can’t think of anything more distasteful than wishing death upon another human, except maybe causing preventable mass death because you don’t want to damage the stock market or your reelection chances. All jokes aside, I hope the President injects himself with bleach.”
Another idiot who actually thinks that a Democrat in the White House could have done anything to prevent this pandemic.
These people are sicker than Trump is right now, let us assure you.
