Satire containing two truths

The best satire is that which delivers a dose of truth to a situation.

This latest from the Babylon Bee does that easily, with two truths.

The first is that most Democrats and Lefties would laugh themselves silly if Trump died of Chinese Sinus Rot disease. Despite their best efforts, Twitter and Facebook could not control the “natural” outpouring of hate after struggling with what already happened.

The second is that New York Governor Andrew Quomo got a lot of old people killed when he panicked early in the face of the disease and cleared them out of hospitals in preparation for the great surge of cases to come – sending them into nursing homes, retirement homes and RTC’s where what was already known to be the most vulnerable populations lived. It’s no wonder his state has 35,000 COVID deaths and a death rate of some 1790 per million population.

And so….

  1. Good thing you are not attributing this crazy decision to “lefties”. The Johnson govt in the UK (righties) did exactly the same thing on a nationwide basis but with more far reaching consequences. In strange times irrational and strange decisions cannot be claimed to be red or blue. However the refusal of the Trump administration to acknowledge the seriousness of the pandemic is nothing short of criminal.

    • I’m struggling to reconcile Trump’s (much criticized) decision to impose border restrictions in January 2020 (long before NZ) as a refusal to acknowledge the seriousness of the pandemic.

      It makes Jacinda’s delay seem nothing short of criminal.
