Remember when a Republican couldn’t have a few family members over to visit without Democrats and the media making a massive scene? Apparently, the same rules don’t apply for Obama — even when he gathered hundreds of people in Martha’s Vineyard for a wild, where there has been a massive COVID spike after Obama’s maskless 60th birthday bash.
Last Saturday, the press went gaga over Obama’s birthday party, where everyone decided that mask rules Democrats push on everyone else just weren’t that important. While health officials are cautioning against drawing a connection between the two things, there has been a huge COVID-19 spike on the island since Obama’s party. The Daily Mail reports that 74 people on Martha’s Vineyard have tested positive as of Friday — the largest number since April. The New York Times‘ COVID dashboard reports that cases are “extremely high” for the area:
Cases have increased recently and are extremely high. The number of hospitalized Covid patients has also risen in the Dukes County area. Deaths have remained at about the same level. The test positivity rate in Dukes County is relatively low, suggesting that testing capacity is adequate for evaluating Covid-19 spread in the area.
There has been a 1,350 percent increase in new cases per day as well as a 157 percent increase in hospitalizations.
Health officials say “it’s too early to tell” whether Obama’s party caused the spike. That story, they say, will be told next week after more data is available. But the fact is that he brought in a bunch of celebrities and guests from all around the country. They all skipped masks just like the Democrats state lawmakers who recently boarded private jets and ran away to D.C. to stifle a vote on election integrity. It’s not exactly unreasonable that they, too, would infect each other and the surrounding community unfortunate enough to encounter them.
