📍NEW: Chilling video of El Paso jail inmates hired to move bodies of #COVID19 deceased patients into mobile overflow morgues. Inmates wear full PPEs & paid $2/hour. They’ve been doing this tough work since Monday, before El Paso increased to 10 mobile morgues. I cry for El Paso.

⚠️MOTHER OF GOD—El Paso nurse’s horrifying story of hospital situation. There is a COVID room nicknamed “the pit” where no doctors enter, patients only get 3 CPR cycles—patients are sent there to just wait, code & die. None has survived “the pit”.

These three tweets, K, from a South Dakota ER nurse yesterday:

Jodi Doering @JodiDoering

I have a night off from the hospital. As I’m on my couch with my dog I can’t help but think of the Covid patients the last few days. The ones that stick out are those who still don’t believe the virus is real. The ones who scream at you for a magic medicine and that Joe Biden is

Going to ruin the USA. All while gasping for breath on 100% Vapotherm. They tell you there must be another reason they are sick. They call you names and ask why you have to wear all that “stuff” because they don’t have COViD because it’s not real. Yes. This really happens. And

I can’t stop thinking about it. These people really think this isn’t going to happen to them. And then they stop yelling at you when they get intubated. It’s like a fucking horror movie that never ends. There’s no credits that roll. You just go back and do it all over again.

South Dakota is a grim place to be, when you're a Biden supporter.
Move to New York.

"South Dakota is a grim place to be, when you're a Biden supporter.

why are you assuming she's a Biden supporter?

second, if you're a Trump supporter in New York, should you move to South Dakota?

third, why are there two Dakotas? Bad enough you have a Wyoming and a Montana, but two Dakotas?

Rumors of a massive motorcycle rally, just like the one this past summer which drew 100,000s, in support for the orange clown in South Dakota.

Why are you assuming that wasn't a troll tweet?

Republican support in New York is growing, so maybe stay put if you're a deplorable.

Public health is a state responsibility. The role of the Feds is to play a supporting role. Blame for what's happening in South Dakota, rests with the state government of South Dakota.

After controversy over the location of a capital, the Dakota Territory was split in two and divided into North and South in 1889. Later that year, on November 2, North Dakota and South Dakota were admitted to the Union as the 39th and 40th states. This vast territory was one of the last American regions to be settled.

Huh? Doesn't sound like anything a good Quaker would say.

Nor is it supported by the Bible.

Then what is your source, kv?
