For everyone wondering how the ignorance around COVID and vaccines got so bad, look no further than Republicans like ex-President Donald Trump, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, and Texas Gov. Ron DeSantis. As long as the people who voted for them continue to see their ignorance validated, the vaccine hesitancy will never end neither will the deadly virus.

In Texas alone, 3.9 million cases of COVID have been reported and nearly 62,000 people have died. Right now, an average of more than 200 people in Texas are dying every day. The daily deaths from COVID-19 were at around 24 on July 1, which changed quickly as the Delta variant has since taken hold. But even going from 24 deaths per day on average to 200 deaths hasn’t convinced that it’s a bad to relax regulations to control the spread of COVID in his state. His voters were convinced by Trump that the disease isn’t that bad and will “disappear…like magic” someday.
The Lincoln Project released a new ad about Texas, Greg Abbott, and that wall across the southern border that the governor promised was coming. There hasn’t been much of a wall built (about 15 miles is all Trump managed to get done in four years), but the former Republican strategists at The Lincoln Project is reminding their Twitter followers that the caskets piling up in Texas contains more than enough materials to build a very, very long wall.
Twitter had a big reaction to the new video by The Lincoln Project. See how of their responses below:
