Wapo Writer Who Claimed More Republicans Will Die of Coronavirus Challenged

Jennifer Rubin, an opinion writer for the Washington Post, told Joy Reid on MSNBC that it is a “particular cruel irony” that “there will be less Democratic deaths.”

Rubin’s argument for her unproven claim was “Which party immediately started having their political figures really portray and use their lives as an example? It was the Democrats.”

Jennifer Rubin:

There is a particular cruelty, irony that it is their core viewers, the Republican older viewers, who are the most at risk. And when you think about it, which party immediately canceled all of their rallies?

Which party immediately started having their political figures really portray and use their lives as an example? It was the Democrats.

So typically, there will be less Democrat deaths because there will be less mass gatherings. There will be less opportunities for people to congregate and share this horrible disease. So it is really a very short-sided strategy. But I think now the name of the game is how do they get back on planet earth.

Rubin’s thesis was mocked and challenged by Ryan Saavedera of DailyWire:

Another brilliant analysis from the Jennifer Rubin (sarcasm)

Maybe the reason that Republicans are not as worried about the virus as Democrats is because Republicans do not live in big cities

People *should* take the virus seriously and no one should cheer opponents dying
