"480 Minutes" - Incompetence Has Consequences


Today is the first anniversary of the day a sitting U.S. President speaking on national television beseeched the only medical advisor near the podium to look into whether injecting disinfectant might be a cure for the raging COVID-19 pandemic. Up to that day the objectively pro-COVID "very stable genius" had presided over 46k U.S. COVID deaths. Thanks to his criminally negligent messaging and overall handling of the crisis,  one year later the U.S. death toll has ballooned to 584k. Incompetence has consequences.

This week #MAGA sucker Ted Nugent announced to his tribe that he'd contracted COVID-19, referring to it as "the Chinese shit" because that's just the kind of guy he is. After repeatedly parroting the his hero the Orange Russian Asset by claiming the virus was hoax, The Nuge became infected with COVID-19 and the "hoax" made him barely able to crawl out of bed. "I thought I was going to die," he admitted.

This could be treated as schadenfreude, but it rarely is with the reality-denying community anymore because of the intentional damage done. During the announcement he insisted that he won't get the vaccine because "no one knows what's in it."

Mr. Darwin, are you listening?
