Something very strange is happening with the Covid pandemic. I mentioned it yesterday and published a chart that graphically illustrates it, and today more concrete data has arrived that confirms my observation. The Covid pandemic has entered a phase where it is defined by political affiliation, a situation of which I cannot find any previous examples in history. MAGAts are not vaccinated, and now those who contract the disease and die from it are almost entirely from this unvaccinated demographic.

Who do you think they’re going to blame? Themselves? Triumph? The Republican Party?
