Anti-Vaxxers Coronavirus Social Media WTF?!

MT Greene Gets Slapped Down For Posting Blatant Lie That Anti-Vaxxers Are Being Denied Medical Treatment

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) went on fact-free, extended Twitter rant (19 tweets!) on Saturday, spewing conspiracy theories, vitriol, and plenty of whining as she compared what she called “Before COVID” and “After COVID,” even going to far as to suggest (incorrectly) that some people who aren’t vaccinated are being denied medical treatment.

Greene asserted in her tweetstorm that the only reason the government is urging Americans to get vaccinated is to enrich pharmaceutical companies, which is more than a bit hypocritical when you consider that she owns stock in companies that are producing the vaccine:

Greene holds stock in AstraZeneca, Pfizer, and Johnson & Johnson, each worth between $1,000 and $15,000, according to an August 13, 2020, filing from Greene with the clerk of the House of Representatives.

Here are some of the lowlights from Greene’s social media meltdown:

Is any of what Greene alleges true? Of course not! The woman hasn’t said anything accurate or factual since she announced she was running for Congress. And she’s only accelerated her bullshit since getting elected.

Reaction to Greene’s stupidity was immediate and harsh:

 

UPDATE: Greene’s Twitter account has been permanently suspended for spreading lies and misinformation about COVID.

Alyssa Milano Laid Some Major Truth On The MAGA Faithful – And They Lost Their Angry Minds

The daily totals in the War on COVID-19 are staggering, with 214,000 cases being reported in the United States every day, an increase of 83% over the past two weeks alone. Hospitalizations are up 8% and deaths have increased 3% over that same two-week period.

That’s the bad news.

The good news is that the fully vaccinated who contract COVID are experiencing only mild flu-like symptoms which quickly abate, especially if the person has contracted the Omicron variant, which is more transmissible than Delta but far less lethal.

Clearly, as every study across the world has shown, the key to battling COVID is to get vaccinated and boosted, a three-shot regimen that is virtually painless and has almost no side effects.

And yet, a closer look at the data shows that those who voted for Donald Trump are less likely to get vaccinated and more likely to die from the virus, according to NPR:

NPR looked at deaths per 100,000 people in roughly 3,000 counties across the U.S. from May 2021, the point at which vaccinations widely became available. People living in counties that went 60% or higher for Trump in November 2020 had 2.73 times the death rates of those that went for Biden. Counties with an even higher share of the vote for Trump saw higher COVID-19 mortality rates.

In October, the reddest tenth of the country saw death rates that were six times higher than the bluest tenth, according to Charles Gaba, an independent health care analyst who’s been tracking partisanship trends during the pandemic and helped to review NPR’s methodology. Those numbers have dropped slightly in recent weeks, Gaba says: “It’s back down to around 5.5 times higher.”

All of this led actress and progressive activist Alyssa Milano to post a tweet which spelled out the need for everyone to get vaccinated:

Fully vaccinated means no hospitalization, no ventilator, and no long-term health impact from COVID. It’s really that simple.

But to the MAGA faithful, Milano might just as well have been telling them they should stop breathing altogether as a precaution. So they vented their enraged, stunted minds on Twitter as if doing so would place a magic veil of immunity around them and their loved ones:

Alex Jones: Donald Trump Is Either Ignorant Or ‘One Of The Most Evil Men Who Has Ever Lived’

Alex Jones is only good at one thing: Spinning bullshit conspiracy theories about everything that takes place in the United States.

Remember how Jones said the Sandy Hook shooting was a “false flag” staged by the U.S. government as a way to implement gun control? He’s still paying for that lie, and is on the hook for a cool fortune after he was sued by families of the 20 children who were gunned down on that horrific day back in 2012. Courts have said Jones has to pay damages for his lies about the massacre.

And now Jones is claiming that when former President Donald Trump defended taking the COVID-19 vaccine during an interview with right-wing activist Candace Owens, he was either too stupid to know what he was saying or is one of the most “evil” people in world history.

Specifically, Trump told Owens:

“Oh no, the vaccines work. But some people are the ones — the ones who get very sick and go to the hospital are the ones that don’t take the vaccine. But it’s still their choice. And if you take the vaccine, you’re protected.”

That declaration of support for the vaccine, Jones believes, means something horrible is going on, and he wants to make sure his moronic followers know what’s happening, telling them in what he dubbed “an emergency” Christmas message:

“This is an emergency Christmas Day warning to President Trump. You are either completely ignorant about the so-called vaccine gene therapy that you helped ram through with Operation Warp Speed or you are one of the most evil men who has ever lived to push this toxic poison on the public and to attack your constituents who they simply try to save their lives and the lives of others.”

Of course, Jones is right on both points when it comes to Donald Trump: He’s ignorant and also one of the most evil men who has ever lived. Millions of us have known that for years. The fact that it took this long for Alex Jones to figure that out suggests he’s dumber and at least as vile as the failed, one-term ex-president.

Trump Fanatic Trashes Donald For Saying He Supports Booster Shots: ‘F*ck Donald Trump!’

On Sunday in Dallas, failed, one-term former President Donald Trump admitted that he was fully vaccinated for COVID and had even received the booster shot to protect himself from the deadly respiratory illness.

CNN reports:

According to video tweeted by O’Reilly’s “No Spin News,” the former Fox News host says, “Both the President and I are vaxxed” and then asks Trump, “Did you get the booster?”

“Yes,” Trump says to a smattering of boos in the audience. “Don’t, don’t, don’t, don’t, don’t,” Trump says in the video, seemingly trying to quiet the boos. “That’s all right, it’s a very tiny group over there.”

Trump went on to tell those who were refusing to get vaccinated that they were playing a silly game:

“Take credit for it. Take credit for it. It’s great. What we’ve done is historic. Don’t let them take it away. Don’t take it away from ourselves. You are playing right into their hands when you sort of like, ‘oh, the vaccine.’ If you don’t want to take it, you shouldn’t be forced to take it. No mandates. But take credit, because we saved tens of millions of lives. Take credit. Don’t let them take that away from you.”

For once, Trump is right. Everyone should get vaccinated. It’s the wise and considerate thing to do and the best way to finally get us beyond this pandemic.

But don’t tell that to a mega-MAGA Trump fanatic named Allison Wonderland, who posted a profane video on Instagram in which she denounced the ex-president:

“I know this is going to be an unpopular opinion and it truly does pain me to say it, but f*ck Donald Trump! He is now trying to say that by us doubting the jab, that we’re playing right into their hands. What?!”

Wonderland also suggested (incorrectly) that the COVID vaccine is causing deaths:

“Do you guys not see the problem with this?! I mean, if he truly cared about saving whatever’s left of this country, and he truly cared about you, he should be more concerned about exposing the overwhelming number of adverse reactions and deaths from the jab. But no!

“Why is he still touting this product that’s killing people?”

Probably because it isn’t killing people. However, COVID is taking the lives of at least 1,000 Americans every single day.

Here’s the unhinged Ms. Wonderland, who is clearly in need of a brain:

Obese Trump Demanded McDonald’s Be Brought To Him While He Was In Hospital With COVID: Report

While he was at the Walter Reed National Medical Center in October of 2020 for treatment for COVID, failed, one-term, twice-impeached former President Donald Trump demanded that a staffer bring him McDonald’s so he could fill his fat face despite the fact that he had nearly died as a result of the deadly respiratory virus.

How do we know this about Donnie needing his Big Mac fix? It’s one of the details from a new book by former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows, according to Maggie Haberman of the New York Times, who has read the tome:

“Trump had McDonald’s brought to Walter Reed after the Regeneron started kicking in, per Meadows.

“They had to eat with face shields on at the doctor’s orders, which didn’t thrill any of them.”

It has long been reported that Trump has a penchant for the most unhealthy food of all: Fast food. That includes McDonald’s, KFC and pizza, all of which are known to contain plenty of empty calories and are also loaded with sodium, both of which are known to cause heart disease, high blood pressure, and diabetes.

Of course, none of this should surprise anyone, as others in the former president’s orbit have also reported that is a fast food fanatic.

Corey Lewandowski, who worked as campaign manager for Donnie, wrote that aboard Air Force One “there were four major food groups: McDonald’s, Kentucky Fried Chicken, pizza, and Diet Coke.”

Lewandowski also reported what Trump’s usual McDonald’s order consisted of, and just reading it’s enough to put you in need of an angioplasty:

“Two Big Macs, two Filet-O-Fish, and a chocolate malted.”

How many calories would that be in one sitting? Each Big Mac contains 563 calories. The fish sandwiches have 379 calories each. The chocolate shake rings in at 520 calories for a small. Does anyone think Trump got a small? No way.

The total of those calories is over 2.400. And the average American is only supposed to consume 2,000 calories per day. At least now we know why Donnie has long appeared to be morbidly obese. A steady diet of McDonald’s and KFC will do that to you.
