Donald Trump's $200 bribe to seniors won't make it for Election Day, and may be illegal
On Friday, Donald Trump brought his Super Spreader Tour to The Villages in Florida. While sojourning at the nation’s largest retirement community, where a dozen people died of COVID-19 on the day of Trump’s arrival, Trump greeted the mostly mask free crowd with reminders that he’s all about letting them die. While a maskless Trump fan constantly tossed off white power signs in the background, Trump did his cover version of “don’t fear the reaper” for the gathered seniors.
"All they talk about is COVID, COVID, COVID,'' said Trump, “because they want to scare people.” Trump them went on to explain how he would always “love and protect” the elderly … skipping over the part of his COVID-19 response that is basically calls on them to lay down their lives to protect Wall Street. So long as they make it to November 3.
It was a wonderful message for the day in which the United States hit its highest number of new cases since the beginning of the pandemic. To reinforce that message, Ron DeSantis (yes, maskless) warmed up the crowd with warnings that if Biden won, the nation would not follow the wonderful model he had established in Florida, where the high number of cases is being reduced through the most effective means available: Stop reporting new cases.
But there was one topic that didn’t get a lot of attention. Trump did not tell the gathered retirees that the $200 bribe he promised them in September—a card offering refunds on prescription drugs—isn’t going to arrive before Election Day. If it arrives at all.
Why not support a candidate with a REAL healthcare plan?
