Trump, Fox News QAnon, Scott Atlas, an assortment of GOP pols and web purveyors of disinformation are responsible for turning a significant part of the US population into fools who can't deal with the truth about COVID even while they're dying from it.

Which is what I will do for the next three nights. But tonight. It’s me and Cliff and Oreo ice cream. And how ironic I have on my “home”— Jodi Doering (@JodiDoering) November 15, 2020
