Right wing media and the dance around the trumpvirus timeline

"...On Feb. 27, two days after the first reported case of the coronavirus spreading inside a community in the United States, Candace Owens was underwhelmed. “Now we’re all going to die from Coronavirus,” she wrote sarcastically to her two million Twitter followers, blaming a “doomsday cult” of liberal paranoia for the growing anxiety over the outbreak.

One month later, on the day the United States reached the grim milestone of having more documented coronavirus cases than anywhere in the world, Ms. Owens — a conservative commentator whom President Trump has called “a real star” — was back at it, offering what she said was “a little perspective” on the 1,000 American deaths so far. “The 2009 swine flu infected 1.4 Billion people around the world, and killed 575,000 people,” she wrote. “There was no media panic, and societies did not shut down.”..."

The Cult of Stupidly runs at full throttle, non-stop.

1. People were cool back then cause a competent person was in charge ...

People are freaking out now because an incompetent, incessantly political, narcissistic, pathologically lying fucking MORON is pretending to be in charge.

Everyone knows we're in deep shit now is the difference vs. then.

2. How can one not hope that Nazi Fascist assholes like this - get slammed with the virus real hard ?

Attempt to fight it off, fail, and then meet their demise.

What a Nazi waste of human flesh.

Humanity does not get more repulsive than this. These sorts of people like this are demonic.

4. There were about 12500 swine flu deaths in the US (April 2009 to April 2010)

We've had at least 6000 COVID-19 deaths in the US so far, over 1000 of them from Wednesday morning to Thursday morning

There were about 220 deaths in a 24 hour period around 26 March

That suggests about 25%/day increase in daily fatalities or a doubling time of 3-4 days

At this rate, we could beat the swine flu totals by next week

Maybe Owens is just too proud an ideologue to be bother with facts and simple math. Or maybe maggots are eating her brain. Or maybe she's signed some rent-to-own agreement allowing Satan to possess her soul and use her mouth as a demonic megaphone. Whatever it is, I hope the poor woman can get the help she needs

5. And It Was 12,000+ Deaths...

...over the entire duration of the infection. We're essentially 2 months into this.
Even if(!) the death rate stays time linear, in 6 months it would still far exceed H1N1. And that's strictly a hypothetical "if".
