Right-wing pundit Chris McDonald, last seen saying he would vote for Donald Trump over Jesus, has some advice for anyone concerned about the coronavirus outbreak:
Be grateful. Because far more people would die if they testified against Hillary Clinton.
… testifying against Hillary Clinton has got a better chance of killing you than corona. Goodness.
I might as well say it. Might as well say it… That’ll get me on Right Wing Watch tomorrow.
McDonald’s Death-by-Hillary theory has no basis in reality… but somehow makes sense if you live in a conservative echo chamber.
Credit where it’s due, though: McDonald is right that more people will be killed by the flu than the coronavirus. But, unlike the flu, there is no vaccine available (yet) for COVID-19. Even if there were, chances are that many Americans couldn’t afford it.
All the more reason to support politicians calling for universal healthcare.
