Trump Positive Equals Trump Negative

Yeah, I know. Trump tested positive. Him and about seven million more.

In America.

Meanwhile, there are more than a couple hundred thousand dead. And counting. In America. From the disease that he joked about. Said was nothing to worry about. That he fed as his own pet monstrosity that wears his face.

Even if Trump dies? He lives. He lives on in the agonizing deaths of the 209,000 who have died (so far) and the thousands more who will die under his watch and in his name. But who will remain forever nameless in the news.

We would say their names, if only we could keep up.

There is no such thing as a Trump positive.
