"You said Covid would go away after the election, my mom died 16 days after your election"

Just watched this family's story on CNN. Heart wrenching. The daughter was fighting tears as she said " You said Covid would go away after the election, my mom died 16 days after your election". She said her mom would ask if she was going to die. She tried to reassure her she wouldn't, she was wrong. Life long Republicans, they voted for Biden.

A grieving family in Trump country is fighting to prevent more Covid-19 deaths

The two-week Covid-19 test positivity rate in the county was more than 15% on December 8, according to county data. Of the county's 324,492 residents, at least 16,745 have been confirmed infected with the virus.
The Weld County Commission said it would not enforce any of the state's mandates.

SNIP ----
Mask initiative
The family has started an initiative called "Mask up for May," trying to get people to wear masks in the hope it will help save lives and prevent others from experiencing the pain of losing a loved one.
The family members have been lifelong Republicans in a conservative area, and feel let down by the lack of leadership during the pandemic.
President Donald Trump carried Weld County with almost 58% of the vote, according to the county's election website, and the Bunjes family feels that the county's disregard for masks and other measures is a reflection of the President's lack of leadership on the issue.
Trump said many times during the campaign that the virus would disappear after November 3, suggesting it was a ploy by Democrats.
"Oh, our own president saying, the day after the election that the coronavirus would disappear. Well, guess what, Mr. President, my mom died 15 days after your election and it didn't disappear," Strumpf said.
"It didn't go away. It's not going away. It's not a joke. My mom died 16 days after your flippant remarks, and I am devastated."

1. My heart goes out to this young woman.

She lost her mom and her political innocence at the hands of this tyrant and fool.

Her message needs to be spread far and wide!
