In one of the saddest and tearful ads of the 2020 campaign season, the Biden Campaign has released “Didn’t Matter.”

In the piece, Jessica, from Greenfield Wisconsin, recounts the sudden illness and death (within a week) of her grandmother from the Coronavirus.

She then criticized Mr. Trump for “downplaying” the emergence of COVID 19 and his “lack of leadership and lack of responsibility.”

She also feels that “our elderly have not been a priority for this administration and that they don’t matter. And I feel like my grandmother didn’t matter.”

The ad ends with Jessica crying that her grandmother died alone without anyone in the room to personally say goodbye.

How many grandchildren like Jessica in Arizona and across the country no longer can see their grandmother anymore because Donald Trump and his allies at the federal, state, and local level, denied the science and did not take COVID 19 seriously?

  1. And we are yet to see the ‘powers that shouldn’t be’ hold any public ceremony or full acknowledgement of all the lives we have lost to Covid. We are yet to see a dignified recognition of those we have lost , and we have lost so many and so much including Susana Martinez. Republicans merely assign numbers to the deceased and then tinker and shuffle those numbers attempting to steamroll our collective grief under the treads of badly written conspiracy theories and the shadows of imaginary Chinese operatives. There is one thing the Republican party, the party of mass-hysteria junkies and Q’Anon wanna-be autocrats shows consistently :Their lack of respect for humanity and the depth of their retaliatory cruelty. The Maga- cult sees dignity and humanity as a weakness which their violent/ aggressive mindset can not comprehend for it directly contradicts the foundation of the autocracy they have begin to build.
