You are aware that Trump's implications about Covid in Democratic areas is a logical fallacy, right?

Itís called Fallacy of the Undivided Middle and relates to Correlation is not Causation.

Hereís the structure:

All cows are brown.
My dog is brown.
Therefore my dog is a cow.

Letís say one of the main reasons for a cluster of Covid cases is crowding such as in urban areas. Urban areas tend to vote Democratic. See where Iím going?

1. Plus If You Look at Many States the Highest Covid Per Capita Are Not in Metropolitan Areas

see for example Texas where I don't think any of the Top 5 largest cities (lead by Democrats) are in the top 40 of highest covid per capita.

95% of metropolitan areas led by Democrats are wearing masks and social distancing
