THREAD: I just spent 3 days with frontline workers at hospitals in a part of Appalachia where hospitalizations have more than doubled in the last month. But hospital staff say many in their hard-hit communities still don’t believe COVID is real. Misinformation is rampant.

How generous of Trump supporters to donate $3,000,000 to find extra votes for Joe Biden! With a net gain of 132 votes, they paid more than $22,000.00 for each Biden vote. So much winning.

Bored enough to engage with the dude who created a Facebook account that looks like an organisation that's currently running a competition to win a PS5. I wonder how long I can carry on before he realises that I know he's a scammer.

You can tell when rich people write movies about being poor, cuz there’s always a scene where a poor person’s credit card gets declined. When you’re poor, you know EXACTLY how much money is in your bank account. All poor people aren’t dumb idiots who can’t keep track of money.

If the Government did a little less of lecturing us to do the right thing and a little more of supporting, then less people would be wandering around spreading the infection and we might not have some of the worst death rates and economic figures in the world.

Nearly a third of the nurses who've died of coronavirus in the US are Filipino, even though Filipino nurses make up just 4% of the nursing population nationwide, according to a recent report from the largest nurses' union in the country.

Being royal means not having privacy. You can’t opt out: if you’re born royal, you’re in from birth. By the time you can, to some extent, walk away from it, much of the damage has already been done. Do we still think that’s an acceptable thing to do to people in the 21st century?

This inevitably means a high level of public intrusion into the most personal moments of their lives. Royal legitimacy is all about births, marriages and deaths. It always has been. Think of queens giving birth before large audiences.

I wonder if what people are really discussing when they’re discussing whether we should have The Crown is whether we should have a Royal Family. Not from a political point of view but from a personal one. Royalty demands of one family that they be major characters in our story.
