The Anti-Defamation League, which was founded to combat anti-Semitism and other forms of hatred, called on Trump to “immediately rescind” the appointment. “It is absolutely outrageous that someone who has consorted with racists would even be considered for a position on a commission devoted to preserving Holocaust memorials in Europe,” said ADL CEO Jonathan Greenblatt in a statement.

I am looking forward to the loyal republicans, who became Trump puppets out of need, distancing themselves from that fat orange loser and straying from the ignorant narrative....even just a touch.

The outbreaks in pockets of certain urban areas is concerning. I hear so many tired and ignorant people spouting the 99+% survival rate among people under 70 as if that is the only thing. Remember when we locked down so that we would not wipe out our older generation? Remember when we wanted to NOT have half of every ICU, all the respirators clogged, and most healthcare workers attending to this and preventing normal healthcare from happening?

This is going to pile up because those fuckers have never even felt oppression and are clinging to the atrocity of having to wear a mask like it was anything more than a personal inconvenience.
