The Fourth Wall

Published:

Is an imaginary wall used by actors to separate their story from the real World; the actors behind this "wall" are simply roll playing. Most actors stick to the script, but some do go off script and say some strange things. I'm pretty sure most readers understand where I'm going with this and it should be obvious to everyone. Maybe not exactly that obvious because the story here is about Covid-19; the election results is another story.

February 7, 2020: “when we get into April, in the warmer weather—that has a very negative effect on that, and that type of a virus.” The spring and summer have passed, and the pandemic is still raging.


February 27, 2020: “It’s going to disappear. One day, it’s like a miracle—it will disappear.” No comment necessary!


May, 2020: “Coronavirus numbers are looking MUCH better, going down almost everywhere,” and cases are “coming way down.” On May 31, 2020 there were 1,716,078 confirmed cases with 101,567 deaths attributed to virus.


June 17, 2020: The pandemic is “fading away. It’s going to fade away.” See the pattern, it wasn't fading away in the real World it was getting worse.


July 4, 2020: “99%” of COVID-19 cases are “totally harmless.” Ever had an operation where they put a breathing tube down your throat? They say a ventilator is 100 times worse.


July 6, 2020: “We now have the lowest Fatality (Mortality) Rate in the World.” Maybe in Trump's imaginary world! At that time the U.S. was somewhere in the middle, but now has 80,000 more virus death than the next highest country in the World.


And finally, this was made many times at campaign rallies: “rounding the corner” and “rounding the final turn” of the pandemic. This was said both before and after over 200,000 Americans died after contacting the virus.

There are virtually hundreds of other false and/or misleading virus claims made by Trump since February and are nothing more than stories concocted behind the fourth wall. Maybe to help his supporters feel better or "tougher" because they didn't wear masks at his rallies. I really hope none of his "story world" supporters catch the "real world" virus and risk death, but it might take that for some of them to finally see the difference between Trump's "story world" and real World reality.

We are currently on another lockdown here in NM.   Its real bad this time and the hospitals are full. We can be thankful that Biden is taking this serious.

There are several other hot spots like in NM and while some have enough beds, they don't have enough staff to care for many more patients. The Heroes Act would help the situation, but the Senate won't even discuss it. But than again some Senators are against even wearing masks so I guess they don't see the virus as a real threat. Let's hope that 87 year old Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley isn't put on a ventilator.

There was an interview on Fox with Chris interviewing Lawrence Tribe & The one and only Kenneth Starr. The voice of reason was Tribe.

He said " If the repubs thinks Trump was robbed & the system was rigged, then all the repubs who ran and won should admit that their races were rigged as well, after all they were all on the ballot as well."
Makes perfect sense to me.
Even if by a miracle Trump prevailed & was sworn in for a 2nd term, he would not be taken serious by the majority of this country & The WORLD.
