Hollywood celebrities’ hatred for Donald Trump and Republicans knows no bounds.
Over the past four years, members of the entertainment industry have seemingly used all of their creative energy in slandering Trump.
Now one Trump-deranged Hollywood director made a disgusting accusation.
Writer-director Judd Apatow has been one of the most vocal critics of Donald Trump and Republicans more broadly.
He has spearheaded numerous boycott campaigns against Fox News’s Tucker Carlson, and he’s fundraised for various Democrat politicians.
Now Apatow is blaming Trump for the death of Louisiana Congressman-elect Luke Letlow who died of a heart attack while undergoing heart surgery due to complications from COVID-19.
If Trump had made wearing a mask essential to Republicans he would be alive. So would hundreds of thousands of others. https://t.co/qjPDUzA7TT

Apatow’s comments are disgusting.
First, America is one of the most mask-compliant countries in the world, and the efficacy of masks remains in dispute.
Progressive journalist Glenn Greenwald pointed out the glee that members of the left exhibited at Letlow’s death because he was a Republican.
The smug football-spiking glee over Luke Letlow’s death at 41 is one of the most repulsive things I’ve seen on this site.
Celebrating death is repugnant in all cases but he wasn’t a COVID denier. Urging that the costs of isolation & economic ruin be considered isn’t denialism: https://t.co/mHKUZh7DjU

Erin Gaetz, younger sister of Congressman Matt Gaetz, also pointed out that Letlow wore masks and took precautions.
It’s completely disingenuous to imply he didn’t take COVID seriously.
He routinely wore a mask. He made an effort to hold events outside and distance.

Apatow and members of the left are constantly looking for a cudgel with which to beat Republicans.
They believe it’s a moral crime to have any dissenting opinion from the establishment narrative regarding the coronavirus.
But many physicians and healthcare experts have warned about the negative outcomes related to the current course of action regarding the virus.
For example, illnesses like cancer and tuberculosis are going unscreened because of navelgazing about COVID.
Blaming Trump and Republicans for a virus that has spread across the globe is preposterous, but that’s par for the course among leftists.
