Politician getting voted for

Terrence Thompson, Staff Writer

While many may criticize and demonize politicians in the media, these assumptions can lead to extremely harmful stereotypes. Despite what the public may believe, the information that they produce is “100% truthful.” Obviously, there is no reason to question these harbingers of undebatable fact, nor their motives. Since when has there ever been a person in a political context that’s lied? In fact, their decisions have clearly only ever led to good outcomes for the country.


For example, during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, the ‘Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’ issued a recommendation for Americans across the country to start wearing “cloth face coverings” since surgical masks were in short supply in comparison. Ex-President Donald Trump instantly stated that he was not interested. In fact, not only did he insist on protecting the right to not wear a mask, possibly endangering the public, but he was encouraging others to do the same! After all, why would anybody want to hide their patriotic smile behind a piece of cloth?


Another example of this is when Marjorie Taylor Greene, a Right-winged United States Representative suggested that the country should not shut down during COVID-19 because every single year more than 600,000 people in the US die from cancer. The country has never once shut down. Not a single school has closed. That’s right folks, if something is deadlier than another thing, you can obviously ignore all the consequences of one! After all, it is what it is!


Is this not proof enough that our government and their representatives are trustworthy sources? That they are not, in fact, the embodiment of rich ignorance and assumptions? How about Ex-President Barack Obama having to renege on his repeated vow that you could keep your plan under the new health care law, to a Nevada politician promising to vote for slavery if his constituents wanted it, to President Joe Biden calling the wrong Marty Walsh not once but twice?
