A transphobic war veteran supporting Trump ripped apart those who took the coronavirus seriously. He later died of the new disease.
The U.S. military veteran, who spent nine years in the U.S. military touring Iraq and Afghanistan, wrote on Facebook on July 1 that he had been tested for COVID-19, saying that he had been “very sick in the past few days.
“This morning I was finally buffered,” he writes, “I should have known what the results were. I just want to feel good. ”
Rose died three days later.
A staunch supporter of the President – who has often downplayed the threat of the virus – Rose has regularly shared messages from Trump. In a post, he amplified the president’s tweets which decried the Black Lives Matter protesters who described American cities as “thugs”.
“I support my president and his words,” Rose wrote on Facebook. “It is finally time to have a president who supports us. I am happy to call him MY PRESIDENT! ”
A few days after Rose’s death, the president left Americans stunned after months of mocking those who wore masks and rejecting calls by health officials to wear one, finally wearing a blanket during a visit the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center this month.
The masks appeared as a shortcut for the pandemic itself. A reminder of how the world has changed as a result of the coronavirus rampage and the ways in which normality has been disrupted.
As a result, many right-wing community leaders have mocked the masks, often seeking to erode or suppress the calls of legislators to wear them. Trump had refused to wear a mask at press conferences, coronavirus task force updates, rallies, and other public events for months.
