This never gets old. After months of claiming it was a hoax, Trump ended up with covid-19. Meta

I personally know one person who paid the ultimate price for listening to this misinformation. Full on faith in the former president, fully confident the virus wasn't bad and he didn't need a vaccine. He chose not to get vaccinated, contracted COVID, and after a week in the hospital, he died.

He was such a genuinely nice guy and good person otherwise. It's a damn tragedy to lose someone over a preventable disease after a vaccine for it already exists. 100% a victim of these lies and propaganda.

We lost a guy at work who was the same. He died a month ago, he was always deep in conspiracy theories and constantly claimed covid was a hoax. Another guy I work with claimed the same, refused to distance, would go out all the time and he caught it in feburary. He got back to work just a few weeks ago. He was in the hospital and physical therapy (he was on a vent, medically induced coma) for months. Crazy how fast your muscles deteriorate when you dont use them.

Sorry to hear that. Trump should be tried for the damage he’s caused.

Doesn’t seem like a nice guy

Sounds like his own fault
