A lot more Republicans than Democrats are going to die of Covid.

With this election win, more than ever, Democrats are going to listen to the words of Joe Biden who says wear a facemask, keep your distance, Covid is a real threat.

On the other side, Trump is stoking up more anger at what he is portraying as a stolen election. He will still be holding his rallies and stirring up more hatred, based on his grievances and lies. Effectively, Trump is still going to be their idol. He's still going to be their cult leader. Republican lawmakers are doing nothing to stop that.

Is his base going to take a blind bit of notice of what Joe Biden has to say about mask-wearing? Of course not. They are being told he cheated to win the election. Their base is being brainwashed into being anti-Joe, no matter what the actual facts and no matter how good Joe is as president-elect and as president, just as they are brainwashed into being anti-science.

So, battle lines have been drawn between the Democrats who have a leader who says wear masks and listen to the experts, and the Republicans who are told it is okay to mock mask-wearers and Covid is really no big deal - Trump got over it and "we've turned the corner."

The result will be a disproportionate number of Republican deaths. And one day a study will be done that will show that is so, and show Trump's actions helped to kill tens of thousands of Republicans. And what will his followers say? They will say the study is a Democratic hoax, conducted by Democratic scientists who are aren't as smart as Donald Trump.

1. Wearing a mask for the past 10 months would have made a difference.

We never leave home without a spare.

13. I suggest a Mask Mandate for everyone.

Perhaps for many years.

Trump repellent is anything suggesting you are a Democrat.

2. The people that attend or attended those rallies

Are free to choose to do so or not. They are free to choose to wear a mask or not. That there are potential consequences from their choices is just too bad. I offer them

7. My daughter is a nurse

School teachers, police officers, postal service workers, and all those other who have to be in close proximity to others do not all agree with the risks a nutcase minority of the population is taking. That doesn't even include the family and friends of the nutcases.

15. "I could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot somebody,

and I wouldn't lose any voters, OK? It's, like, incredible."

Trump in 2016 at Dordt College in Sioux Center, Iowa.

More than just "incredible."

Strictly speaking, he did lose some voters, including over a third of the white male Democrats he drew in 2020, but he energized others into coming out for him. In this case, their cover story is that Covid is a natural event he shouldn't be blamed for.
