Within hours and even minutes of hearing the news that President Trump and the First Lady tested positive for Coronavirus, literally hundreds of left-leaning people with verified Twitter accounts began tweeting their wish that Trump suffer and die.
let's test this: hope he fucking dies— Corey Atad (@CoreyAtad) October 2, 2020
We can agree to disagree but when he dies I’ll be popping bottles and shooting off fireworks in celebration.— Vivicca A. Whitsett (@2tall4u2) October 2, 2020
"The Wire" star Dominic West even told "Good Morning Britain" that he "did in the air with joy" with joy when he heard the news and even when the host tried to get him to back off and say that he felt badly for the president personally, West said instead that he was feeling a lot of "schadenfreude."
"I think the phrase is 'What goes around comes around,'" he said with a smile.
Meanwhile, "The Wire" creator David Simon took to Twitter to share his theory that Trump is faking his positive test.
Honestly, when a man lies so damn much, am I wrong to imagine another cry of wolf for an October surprise? That Trump is claiming a positive test, will present as asymptomatic, or claim himself cured with bleach, then dismiss COVID again as a Democratic hoax? I'm wrong, right?— David Simon (@AoDespair) October 2, 2020
Journalist Kurt Eichenwald said he hoped Trump suffered a bad reaction to the virus...you know, for the sake of others.
This is why I won’t be wishing him well. If he is recovers easily, I have no doubt t10s of 1000s more will die because he & Fox will send out this irresponsible message, fueling more recklessness While I hope he survives, the health of many depend on Trump experiencing bad Covid. https://t.co/AjSq9KUMiP— Kurt "Mask Up, Vote Early" Eichenwald (@kurteichenwald) October 2, 2020
A number of these ghouls aren't just mindless writers or entertainers, either. Several are involved in politics and even worked for Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, and Elizabeth Warren.
Praying Our President doesn’t die of the preventable illness that he inflicted upon millions of Americans. 🥰🥰🥰🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸— Popular Front 2020 (@maxberger) October 2, 2020
Trump did this to himself. He inflicted this same misfortune upon millions of others.— Popular Front 2020 (@maxberger) October 2, 2020
He’s a corrupt, white supremacist criminal who’s responsible for more American deaths than 9/11 and the wars in Vietnam, Korea, Iraq and WWI combined.
No one should feel bad for him.
If someone tries to scold you for thinking this is funny, simply tell them that you hope the president dies from the virus.— Cody Johnston (@drmistercody) October 2, 2020
Just a quick note of support for Hope Hicks and President Trump I hope they both die— Alex Blagg (@alexblagg) October 2, 2020
He killed 200,000 people. Hope he dies a horrible death!— rob hoffman (@Rob_Hoffman) October 2, 2020
Even if they weren't wishing he died, prominent liberals and journalists were celebrating the karma of President Trump testing positive.
I hope every single one of those racist, sexist, homophobic, awful human beings in his orbit gets it and suffers. I hope they go through what they’ve put millions of people through with their own recklessness. I don’t hope they die. I hope they live in pain and infamy.— Jesse Spector (@jessespector) October 2, 2020
I know karma is not exactly a scientific concept, but Trump's infection is the inevitable result of his disregard of science, his arrogant/ignorant dismissal of wearing a mask, his disdain for the warnings of public health officials.— Richard Stengel (@stengel) October 2, 2020
Trump ass got rona! There is a god and karma is real!!— Black Joe Lewis (@blackjoelewis) October 2, 2020
Wishing President #Trump gets well from what he initially called a #Hoax. I sincerely hope that he does NOT inject the ‘disinfectant’ into his body which he was suggesting others to do!! Also hoping that #Karma spares him thereof...🙏#COVID19 #TrumpTestsPositive #TrumpHasCovid— Adnan Sami (@AdnanSamiLive) October 2, 2020
