After multiple recounts, with a slew of even Republican officials confirming that the election was fair and that Joe Biden emerged as the winner, Donald Trump continues to say he was cheated and that even Republicans have conspired against him. What is his answer to this “problem”? Trump wants to just call off the election. The election, however, is already over.
Trump continues to point to anything that makes him look bad as a “fraud” and “fake,” including both the election results, which make him look like a loser, and COVID-19 efforts, which make him look like a failure. However, neither of those are fake. They’re very real, as millions of voters and at least 268,000 families who have lost loved ones can attest.
The governor of Nevada did not fake photos of a hospital parking lot set up to treat an overflow of COVID patients unless a massive number of hospital workers as well as every local newspaper in town colluded to do so.
Hospitals in Reno, Sparks and Carson City said that they were seeing the highest rate of hospitalizations to date for COVID-19, raising concerns about hospital capacity being overwhelmed. About 85% of staffed hospital beds in Washoe County were filled as of Sunday. Active cases in Washoe County also surged past 4,000 then 5,000 in just the last few days.
According to the Reno Gazette Journal:
‘With the state’s 14-day moving average hitting more than 1,200 cases per day, Nevada could resort to drastic measures should the situation fail to improve in the next week or so, said Caleb Cage, Nevada’s COVID-19 response director, at a virtual press conference held on Monday.
‘“The governor is incredibly concerned about the severity of COVID-19 in the state,” Cage said. “We are currently exploring all mitigation options available in order to stop the concerning spread that we’re seeing in the state.”’
Just as there would need to be a universal conspiracy among hospital workers in Nevada’s new, makeshift hospital to keep such a ruse quiet, it would take a far higher and more universal effort to undermine a democratic election, and that conspiracy would need to include Republicans, most of whom agree that the election is over and Trump lost.
Twitter was quick to let Trump know that’s what happened. Read some of their comments below:
