President 45 and his enablers have infected America with hate, lies and distortions.

Bus Drivers Hardest Hit by Deaths as COVID-19 Devastates MTA
"... Ernesto Hernandez became one of the MTA’s first COVID-19 fatalities during the pandemic — and one of seven bus operators, so far, to die from coronavirus...
...Among the at least 33 subway and bus workers who have died from COVID-19,  the MTA’s bus drivers have taken the biggest hit in an agency with more than 74,000 employees..."

At a time like this, scorching irony, 
not convincing argument, is needed. 
O! had I the ability, 
and could I reach the nation’s ear, 
I would, to-day, 
pour out a fiery stream of biting ridicule, 
blasting reproach, 
withering sarcasm, 
and stern rebuke. 
For it is not light that is needed, but fire; 
it is not the gentle shower, but thunder. 
We need the storm, 
the whirlwind, 
and the earthquake. 
The feeling of the nation must be quickened; 
the conscience of the nation must be roused; 
the propriety of the nation must be startled; 
the hypocrisy of the nation must be exposed; 
and its crimes against God and man 
must be proclaimed and denounced.
