Jordan Klepper didn’t learn the information as we speak, oh boy.
The far-left comedian clearly missed the rising wave of knowledge, AKA science, displaying states which are reopening their economies aren’t killing their residents in mass numbers.
In reality, simply the alternative is going on.

The media narrative up so far, alas, informed us the exact opposite. Outlet after outlet predicted catastrophes for states like Florida and Georgia for permitting a modicum of “Normal” to return.
They have blood on their palms, some actually argued.
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis excoriated the media earlier this week for his or her Fake News methods.
That didn’t cease Klepper and the oldsters at “The Daily Show” to disregard the details on the bottom. And, in flip, mock these determined to return to their jobs — and put meals on their tables.
The lockdown protesters.
Klepper introduces two nurses who’re protesting the anti-lockdown protests in North Carolina. One nurse says she’s “excited” as a result of she will get to “be a foil to the insanity about to occur.”
Klepper refers back to the lockdown protesters as “a small variety of outdoors voices.” Did Klepper examine the crowds, going individual to individual to see the place every hailed from?
Of course not. He’s safely tucked away in his house, amassing his paycheck. How a lot of these protesters are getting theirs?
“What do you assume their final message is?” Klepper asks the nurse.

And let’s not neglect one thing the mainstream media desperately need us to reminiscence gap. The overwhelming majority of individuals dying of the virus are the aged, many residing in nursing properties.

Seems just like the job for a truth-telling comedian to discover, no? Again, don’t depend on Klepper speeding in any time quickly.
Every life is treasured, however most anti-lockdown protesters are far youthful than that demographic, and so they’re marching outdoor in a state with far fewer deaths than, say, New York.
Now, nurses are actually on the entrance strains. They’re serving to sick Americans get higher and aiding others too sick to get better. That doesn’t make them resistant to criticism. Nor does it protect them from getting used as props by late night time comics, apparently.
Klepper isn’t alone right here. Both Stephen Colbert and Jimmy Kimmel, millionaires many instances over and nonetheless cashing paychecks, have mocked lockdown protesters. Other celebrities have completed the identical, from the consolation of their mansions.
