The call for body bags came late Saturday.

By Monday, the police in a small New Jersey town had gotten an anonymous tip about a body being stored in a shed outside one of the state’s largest nursing homes.

When the police arrived, the corpse had been removed from the shed, but they discovered 17 bodies piled inside the nursing home in a small morgue intended to hold no more than four people.

“They were just overwhelmed by the amount of people who were expiring,” said Eric C. Danielson, the police chief in Andover, a small township in Sussex County, the state’s northernmost count

A Trumphead I work with constantly screeches about how the flu killed more people last year than Covid. I asked her to get back to me when we’ve had a full year of Covid and we’d go over the numbers then.

The number of COVID-19 deaths is dependent upon how Trump feels that day. There is no such thing as science, logic or “maths” anymore.

By decree.

He’s a despicable creature. Sad that so many people will believe him.

Trump views everything through the prism of how it makes him look. Which is why he can never feel or express empathy for anyone else, regardless of the profoundness of the tragedy. So, no surprise here.

Told y’all about a week ago that this would result in “bodycount truthing”. Predictable as the sunrise.

Plus, just because you test positive for covid, doesn’t mean that covid actually killed you… Could have been Pneumonia… So really should subtract all cases where there was a co-morbidity to be fair to Dear Leader.

Trump has expressed publicly that he views COVID-19 data, like the stock market, as a ticker of his own success.

This is why Trump is so anxious to “open the economy.” He needs to see higher COVID mortality figures so he can feel good about being the “BEST” at something.

President Skanky Manslut’s had two childhood dreams that got him all hot and excited. He wanted to become President Putin’s bitch and to kill some one in the middle of 5th Avenue in broad daylight and get away. He got them both in abundant measure.

And without anyone in the WH, or outside the WH to tell him when to shut up.

Probably should also point out to her that deaths that happened because the hospitals were overwhelmed or people who too afraid to go the the hospital are also COVID related deaths.
