Wow. It’s a good thing election season doesn’t make people lose it or anything. Otherwise we might thing that author and American Economics Liberties Project research director Matt Stoller was, you know, losing it:
This is likely the last primary before we start reckoning with mass death. What is coming will change politics in ways that are hard to imagine.

What’s hard to imagine is that there are actually people out there who will continue to take Matt seriously after that white-hot take.

Don’t you think you’re exaggerating a bit.

I think “mass death” is hyperbolic. There could well be significant clusters of elderly people dying in skilled nursing facilities, as in Seattle, but it’s not going to be like the Black Plague.

It's really irresponsible to tweet such hysterical hyperbole with no discernible medical expertise.

This kind of irresponsible fear mongering is as disgusting as it gets. https://t.co/8XTZ8FxPZS
