As it turns out, those “grass roots” protests are funded by the usual suspects of hard right wing ideologues with big money.
Betsy deVos is included in those folks. She has billions in inherited money from Dad’s multi level marketing company. So why not encourage civil disobedience with armed protestors in the middle of a deadly pandemic. I guess she doesn’t have to sweat the virus by working next to infected people.
The really sad part is the regime. “I have absolute power”. “Let the governors decide”. “No, I decide.”
“What’s that? You mean I’m responsible if I decide? Damn!”
“The governors will decide, but my protestors will force them to open or there will big, huge trouble.”
“Hey, not my fault my sheep…er, fans…followers…supporters are protesting. It wasn’t my money that paid for it. NOT MY RESPONSIBILITY!!!”
And so, the president was given a sedative and reassured that it was going to be just fine. It was out of his hands…as planned.
IMHO, but my sources are impeccable.
