Seriously, they do.
Last night Governor Lee took to the lectern to, well... lecture.
Covid-19 is raging, he says. True.
But notice what's not "raging" -- the flu. In fact, Covid-19 has apparently vanquished the flu, consuming it. Indeed, since September only 666 cases of the flu have been recorded anywhere in the United States and just slightly more than one instance per state last week.
If you believe that's anything close to reality you need a lobotomy.
There are only two reasonable hypothesis on that: Covid-19 wasn't really -19 at all; in 2018, I remind you, hospitals were full to the top with flu patients yet we were not locking down and wagging our fingers, nor was anyone wearing a mask. Wait -- they were treating people in tents in 2018? Why yes, yes they were - in January of 2018..
This of course implies that either Covid "19" was actually around for the last several years and simply called flu or we're ignoring the flu.
