Postitive COVID-19 tests have been skyrocketing at an unprecedented rate. While the death rate is, thankfully down, ICU’s in a number of different cities are being overwhelmed.
Donald Trump and Republicans have attempted to spin the rising cases as an inevitable part of increased testing. Still, the lack of control over the illness is a devastating blow to Trump’s 2020 chances. Ohio State Representative Nino Vitale (R) has come up with a solution. He took to his Facebook page to demand that citizens stop being tested for the illness.
The Ohio lawmaker asked his Facebook followers, “Are you tired of living in a dictatorship yet?”
Natale made the argument that expanded testing for the illness is a gift to Democrats. “(COVID-19 testing) gave the government an excuse to claim something is happening that is not happening at the magnitude they say it is happening.”
The Republican also stated that there is some kind of conspiracy where the media has stopped talking about death rates. “Have you noticed they never talk about deaths anymore, just cases? And they never talk about recoveries. They just keep adding to numbers they have been feeding us from over 3 months ago!”
