Just in case anyone has forgotten, a year ago, in April of 2020, former President Donald Trump suggested during a White House daily briefing on the coronavirus that an “injection” of disinfectant into the human body could help stop the deadly disease, remarking:
Yet despite this, a new poll shows that fully two-thirds of Republicans who still support the failed, one-term loser former POTUS would gladly take medical advice from Dr. Donald, even though the medical condition he likely has the most personal experience with is some form of a sexually transmitted disease.
According to Mediaite:
“After nearly three months out of office, former President Donald Trump still holds significant influence over Republican voters’ medical decisions — the same voters who are most likely to say they will not be vaccinated against the coronavirus.
“Trump was by far the least trusted among all respondents, at just 29 percent, including 6 percent of Democrats and 29 percent of Independents. But among Republicans, a whopping 66 percent said they trust Trump ‘a lot’ or ‘somewhat’ for medical advice.”
That same poll also shows that many Republicans don’t plan to ever receive a vaccine for COVID-19, which would seem to suggest there will soon be many fewer GOP voters. No wonder states like Georgia and Texas are busy trying to keep likely Democratic voters from casting a ballot. They know they’re outnumbered and can only win by cheating.
So where does this new poll leave us? Pretty much right back where we began when Trump first ran for the White House. Millions of Americans are willfully ignoring facts and the truth and choosing to take the advice of a man who lies more often than he breathes.
Thankfully, Donald Trump is no longer president. But his moronic influence on those who are easily deluded remains strong. That’s why we have to remain vigilant. And it’s also the perfect reason everyone that opposes Trump should get a COVID vaccine.
