Donald Trump held an Arizona rally and immediately began handing out lies as if they were ice-cream cones. The first was, in essence, that white people had to sit in the back of the bus. Then, he plopped another lie onto to the first one, that left-leaners can decide “who lives and who dies,” according to The Business Insider. Oh wait, there is more.
The ex-president held a campaign rally in Florence, Arizona over the weekend. And he threw out his last lie. He claimed that being White means that you received less medical treatment for COVID-19:
‘The left is now rationing life-saving therapeutics based on race, discriminating against and denigrating, just denigrating white people to determine who lives and who dies. You get it based on race. In fact, in New York state, if you’re white, you have to go to the back of the line to get medical help. If you’re white, you go right to the back of the line.’
Trump was speaking about The Wall Street Journal’s opinion piece entitled New York’s Race-Based Preferential Covid Treatments. It read that New York was running low on various remedies for the COVID virus. Given how many people still refused vaccines for it, the state’s hospitals were overflowing, and staff was beyond exhausted.
The article’s underlying claim was that due to “longstanding systemic health and social inequities,” people of color were at greater risk of becoming sick and dying in the pandemic.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention statistics did show that people of color do die more frequently from the virus than White people. Based upon that, Trump twisted the facts:
‘If you’re white, you don’t get the vaccine, or if you’re white, you don’t get therapeutics. It’s unbelievable to think this. And nobody wants this, Black people don’t want it, white people don’t want it, nobody wants it.’
Standing pretty before his Arizona rally, Trump continued to spew out vaccine lies:
‘BREAKING: President Trump BLASTS left’s race-based distribution of vaccines and therapeutics, urges Supreme Court to intervene.’

The Bloomberg News released a report that showed in almost 50 percent of the states, Black and Hispanic vaccination rates were way behind White ones by 10 percent. Only to prove that statistics can be bent any way a person wants them to go.
Interestingly enough, there have been Blacks for Trump, identified by t-shirts. They have been placed behind Trump so the cameras will highlight them.
The right-extremist Right Side Broadcasting Network aired the rally and showed this group cheering for Trump.
