A horrifying new poll reveals that 57 percent of Republicans think that 176,000 coronavirus deaths are an “acceptable” loss.
As you may recall, Republicans across the country lost their sh*t over four Americans being killed in Benghazi during the Obama presidency. They held years of hearings investigating the tragedy, more than after the 9/11 attacks in 2001.
Donald Trump and Republicans have also tried to smear Joe Biden by feigning outrage over 12,000 Americans dying from the H1N1 virus in 2009 even though Obama’s quick reaction and more than adequate response kept the toll from rising any further.
The death toll from coronavirus has now topped 176,000 Americans. So, how do Republicans feel about that? Are they outraged?

Aren’t these also the “All Lives Matter” people? There is no way to reconcile this.

How very Christian and “pro-life” of them.

I wish the follow question was – “if one of those deaths was a family member or friend, would it be acceptable or unacceptable?” Are they hypocrites or heartless?

I wonder how those percentages would change if the question asked was about Benghazi…

These people are unacceptable.

Yet, they condemned Obama’s handling of the #H1N1 virus when only 12,000 Americans died?

This is what Trump has turned the Republican Party into. They are nothing more than a bunch of heartless evil hypocrites who care more about holding power than they do about saving lives. This is a holocaust, and they should all be held responsible for it.
