Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubin – screen grab via MSNBC.
When last we left you with Jennifer Rubin, she was accusing well-respected George Washington University law school professor Jonathan Turley of being “crackpottish”, apparently completely lacking in self-awareness of her own storied history of “crackpottish” behavior.
In recent weeks, the Washington Post’s “conservative” columnist has ghoulishly advised 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden “to accuse Trump of [a] willingness to kill people” over the Wuhan coronavirus outbreak. Yes, she actually tweeted that.
Before that, Rubin oddly declared that the GOP was a “death cult” for allegedly “resisting science” on the Wuhan coronavirus.
Her latest trip into crackpottery was, again, by way of her Twitter feed. The unprincipled Never Trumper, who believes the best way to “conserve conservatism” is to elect as many pro-abortion Democrats to higher office as possible, shared a New York Times opinion piece that talked about “the huge cost of waiting to contain the pandemic.” Here’s what Rubin tweeted along with the link:
Here is how many people Trump killed https://t.co/CALtnXviZd

You know, back in 2009 when I was one of the 60 million American people diagnosed with the H1N1 virus (swine flu), I did not – not even one time – blame President Obama for my getting sick. In retrospect there have been criticisms of his administration’s response but even now, over 10 years later, I still don’t blame him.
But obsessed politicos like Rubin just live in this self-important bubble where they are so irrationally consumed with hate and Trump Derangement Syndrome because they can’t get their way politically, and it completely clouds their judgment.
After reading Rubin’s tweet about “how many people Trump killed”, several folks weighed in, with some suggesting friends stage an intervention:
Do you have any kind of editors? Or friends who can check in? This is all just bizarre.

There was also this inconvenient fact, which Rubin to date has not talked about:
Wait. You missed something. The WH issued social distancing guidance on 3/16 but NY did not issue stay at home until a week later.

There is also the issue of China, who covered up the disease and how it was transmitted until after it hit our country. To date, Jen has had no comment on that, either.
Judging everything from the premise of Orange Man Bad is a seriously bad look, but that’s Jen’s method of operation. It is who she is. Sad. Next thing you know she’ll be suggesting Trump be charged with murder.
