Involuntary manslaughter occurs when a person dies due to the recklessness or irresponsibility of the defendant (Trump)
Trump is signaling that after 15 days he wants to ‘isolate the high-risk groups’ and tell everyone else to go back to work—based on a recommendation from a Twitter rando and in direct contravention to public health experts. Just 10 minutes before midnight on Sunday, Tyrant Trump fired off a cryptic all-caps tweet that was interpreted as an alarming signal that—despite warnings from health experts—he could soon lift the federal social distancing guidelines issued by the White House last week to help slow the spread of coronavirus.
“WE CANNOT LET THE CURE BE WORSE THAN THE PROBLEM ITSELF,” idiot Trump tweeted, suggesting the economic impacts of preventative measures could be more harmful than the further spread of coronavirus. “AT THE END OF THE 15 DAY PERIOD, WE WILL MAKE A DECISION AS TO WHICH WAY WE WANT TO GO!”
Then Trump the fool proceeded to retweet a number of approving responses from his supporters, including one Twitter user who said the U.S. should “isolate the high-risk groups and let the rest of us get back to work before it’s all over for everyone.”
Tyrant Trump has repeatedly been chastised by experts for making uninformed statements that either misleads the public or undermine public health warnings in regards to the coronavirus pandemic.
During a press briefing earlier Sunday, Vice President Mike Pence said the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention would release new guidelines Monday that would allow people who were exposed to the coronavirus to return to work if they wear masks.
Greedy Trump is signaling that after 15 days he wants to “isolate the high-risk groups” and tell everyone else to go back to work — based on a recommendation from a Twitter rando and in direct contravention to public health experts.
The 15-day period to which idiot Trump referred to began last Monday when Trump issued guidelines urging people to listen to state and local authorities, avoid unnecessary travel, and stay at home as much as possible. A number of states, including California and New York, have issued “stay at home” orders and temporarily shuttered non-essential businesses.
Critics warned in response to Trump’s tweet that rolling back efforts to stem the spread of COVID-19, which has officially infected more than 33,000 people nationwide, could have catastrophic consequences.
“This is going to get millions of people killed, and a disproportionately large number of them will be his base,” tweeted David Klion, news editor at Jewish Currents.
In a Monday morning appearance on NBC‘s “TODAY,” Trump’s own U.S. Surgeon General Dr. Jerome Adams said “not enough people are taking the virus seriously and warned that “this week it’s going to get bad.” “We really need to come together as a nation,” said Adams. “We really, really need everyone to stay at home.”
Osita Nwanevu, staff writer at The New Republic, pointed to an Imperial College of London study warning that an insufficient coronavirus mitigation strategy could result in over a million deaths from the disease in the United States alone. Nwanevu noted that Trump is not the only one suggesting coronavirus containment measures should soon be lifted for the sake of the economy.
Let’s be clear about this: These Trump cultists, based on reputable estimates, are proposing having a million killed.
