Ever since the Democratic Party nominated its ticket of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris for the 2020 U.S. Presidential Election, together, with their media operatives, have made it central to their campaign message to brazenly lay at the feet of incumbent President Donald Trump the ‘over 200,000 COVID deaths’ – a spurious claim, by any reasonable standard, that has gone virtually unchallenged by mainstream media and even many Republicans seeking to ‘distance’ themselves from the President.

As early as May of this year, Jeff Bezo’s Washington Post had already rendered its verdict in a ‘death counter’ report with a matter-of-fact headline that read, “Trump’s covid-19 inaction killed Americans. Here’s a counter that shows how many.”
