This farking guy.

It just hasn't killed anyone important enough yet.

Though who, other than himself, is important to Half Scoop is something I wouldn't want to venture a guess at

While its true the mortality rate has fallen thanks to doctors and younger, less affected patients, that is about to change.

Quite a few states are now at maximum hospital capacity and will begin rationing care.

You know... death panels.

So as cases continue to skyrocket, expect mortality rates to tick back upwards.

/it also ignores that death isnt the only negative outcome.  Younger, "healthy" patients still get, in significant percentages, insomnia, anxiety; reduced cognitive ability ('like your brain aged 10 years in two weeks'); and heart abnormalities.
//and we still dont know long term affects, whether it lies dormant for a while and comes back, or how common re-infection is.

"It's just little people dying. I mean, who cares about schlubbs?"

The sad thing is that Frau Ingraham totes agrees.

That only happens on days ending in "y".

Hey, Herman Cain was expendable to them. Let the morons talk, just make sure you highlight and repeat the extra stupid parts so people are reminded.

Not nearly as many dead as in Benghazi or Bowling Green.

He's still correct in the context of the Trump family.  Those thousand deaths mean nothing to them.

If anybody knows exactly what "almost nothing" look like, it's the guy that sees DJT Jr looking out from the mirror every morning.
 
2020-10-30 9:39:22 AM  
365,000 deaths in a calendar year would be more deaths than any single cause with two exceptions: heart disease and cancer. I wonder if DHS thinks heart disease and cancer deaths are "almost nothing" as well.

Anyone who focuses only on the mortality rates and not what kind of long term effects this is going to have on a generation of young people who 'recover' is an idiot.

Being hospitalized with Covid will now be a preexisting condition that will not let you join the military.
That is just one example of what will be a lot of firsts where recovery will still hurt the lives of those who have had this disease all their life.

He must not go anywhere where he might meet an actual good person.. otherwise, he'd have permanent red slap marks on his face.
 
2020-10-30 9:40:28 AM  
look, Don Jr can only count to 20 if he takes off his socks and shoes. He may even be able to get as high as 22 when he does that.

any numbers higher than that simply aren't real to him.
 
2020-10-30 9:40:41 AM  
1,000 Americans dead is nothing to the Trumps and their cult followers. It's weird though, we went to war, and have been at war, for 20 years over 3,000 dead Americans.
 
2020-10-30 9:40:56 AM  
The Trump administration is clearly failing us, but the media should be broadcasting pictures of caskets and graveyards and bodies stacked like cord wood every single day.

That's what turned people against the Vietnam war.  The piles of bodies being broadcast day in and day out reminded people what the administration was doing to Americans.  Instead, we've sanitized it, people just hear numbers and statistics and have removed the humanity of every mother, grandparent, sibling from it. They're not faces anymore, they're just numbers.

And numbers are easy to ignore. People need a steady constant diet of just how nauseating and inhuman we're treating this pandemic.

Yeah, yeah, it's "FAKE NEWSSSS!!!!" and 30% will scream that, until it hits home, which it's starting to for most.

The US has more COVID-19 deaths every two months than it had combat deaths in Vietnam. Of course the offspring of bonespurs wouldn't possibly understand why that would be meaningful to a large portion of the population of this country.
 
2020-10-30 9:42:50 AM  
They really do think of us as peasants who should be happy to die for their portfolio. The only people worse are the pathetic cowards who support them anyway.

Well, thanks for admitting you're over Benghazi, at least.

There have been half a million unborn babbies killed in the same time period.

How many "nothings" is that then, eh Half Scoop?

Hardly anyone died from Polio either.

Nothing he cares about, anyway.

Pure sociopaths.

Understandable.  When you are a multi-millionaire, 1,000 is almost nothing.  Apparently whether it's money or lives.

Well luckily the Republican health plan protects pre-existing conditions.
 
2020-10-30 10:01:43 AM  
It's "nobody" to them. Because most of the fatalities are black.

Republicans' attitude toward COVID changed on April 17. That was the day a big study came out showing that most fatalities were African-American, while whites were largely unaffected. That's the very day Republicans all switched to "let's open up and get everybody back to work."
