Donald Trump continued his campaign of death on Saturday, holding multiple super-spreader events in New Jersey and Pennsylvania despite CDC warnings about spikes in COVID-19 cases in more than 40 states. Meanwhile, as if being on television and in front of crowds all day wasn’t enough, Trump took multiple breaks from his campaigning to tweet promotional videos and insults at his competitor.

The theme of most of his tweets was the same as usual: everyone is corrupt but him, he’s here to save a country he’s already the president of, and everything will shut down if he’s not reelected, including cars, electricity, and Christmas. It was his tweet about President Obama and Vice President Joe Biden visiting Flint, Michigan, however, that really stood out.

It is true that Flint, Michigan had a serious water crisis under Obama’s presidency and that the response to that crisis wasn’t nearly good enough. It is true that the governor of Michigan was responsible for creating the crisis and that he has since endorsed Joe Biden for president. It’s the sheer irony of the tweet, though, that makes it so galling.

Stanford University released a study on Friday entitled “The Effects of Large Group Meetings on the Spread of COVID-19: The Case of Trump Rallies.” Using contact tracing and numbers from the CDC and multiple other agencies, the study determined that:

‘Our estimate of the average treatment effect across the eighteen events implies that they increased subsequent confirmed cases of COVID-19 by more than 250 per 100,000 residents. Extrapolating this figure to the entire sample, we conclude that these eighteen rallies ultimately resulted in more than 30,000 incremental confirmed cases of COVID-19. Applying county- specific post-event death rates, we conclude that the rallies likely led to more than 700 deaths.’

While in Pennsylvania, one of the states seeing a sharp spike in the deadly coronavirus, Trump stood in front of a packed crowd whose lives he’s risked for political gain and rally fun, and then tweeted criticism of Obama and Biden for the Flint water crisis.

While he proudly spreads disease and death across the United States, the fact that he has no shame at all in criticizing others for a failed response to anything is outrageous.

Twitter didn’t take the criticism well, either. Read some of their comments below:
