Well I think we found the most ridiculous tweet of anti-Trump nuttery from a semi-prominent journalist, and it is a doozy.
The ultimate voter suppression — Gather asymptomatic carriers in tight groups, shame them into come sans masks, send them home to expose others. Wait two weeks and kill https://t.co/hxUzwBjFSw

Yeah that puppy got ratio’d pretty bad. About 425 comments to 25 retweets, which is one of the worst I’ve seen in a while.
I mean, this is just nonsensical, right? How could anyone believe that infecting your own supporters could be an act of voter suppression? It’s just bizarre. But I guess that’s how bad Trump Derangement Syndrome can get. This is like the q-anon of the left, it’s so nuts.
Twitter was not kind:
Wow, @ron_fournier once used to be a respected and reasonable media figure and political analyst. Somehow, @realDonaldTrump has totally broken Fournier, displayed by this insane drivel of a paranoid apocalyptic-death-to-a-Republic tweet.
Ron, what happened? Do you need help? https://t.co/QPaiHf98GD

Yes, the greatest of electoral strategies: kill voters.
This guy was once a respected journalist… https://t.co/dpBMnsDr1c

Another reputation bites the dust.
