The following article, Flashback: New Yorkers Prefer ‘More Severe’ Pandemic If It Means Trump Loses 2020 Election, was first published on Flag And Cross.
Ami Horowitz went to New York City to ask people a simple question: “Would you go for this deal: that the coronavirus lasts longer and is more severe, but the president guarantees to lose the election?”
No brainer, right?
Well, not to a lot of people.
From Daily Wire:
In his latest digital short, filmmaker Ami Horowitz took to the unusually empty streets of New York City, the epicenter of the coronavirus pandemic, to ask residents if they would be willing to “make a deal”: have the country suffer a longer, more severe crisis if it means that Donald Trump will definitely lose the election. A majority of the people Horowitz talked with said it was a “hard” decision, but opted for a more damaging, deadly pandemic just so long as Trump is defeated in November.
After a man with a shaved head responds, “I want him gone,” Horowitz presses, “Okay, no matter what?” “No matter what, yeah,” the man says.
