If I die from Covid-19 I’ve instructed my family to make my obituary exactly the same: pic.twitter.com/CnrxCzOkH5

I think we are going to see a whole lot of these pretty soon.

Much of David W. Nagy’s obituary, which ran in his local paper in Jefferson, Tex., on July 30, recounted his painful death from the novel coronavirus at age 79 and named his surviving family members. But midway down, the tone shifted to offer a pointed message for President Trump and Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R).
“Family members believe David’s death was needless,” his wife, Stacey Nagy, wrote. “They blame his death and the deaths of all the other innocent people, on Trump, Abbott and all the politicians who did not take this pandemic seriously and were more concerned with their popularity and votes than lives.”
Stacey also scolded people who don’t wear masks, describing them in the obituary as “ignorant, self centered and selfish people” who ignore medical professionals and instead believe that “their ‘right’ not to wear a mask was more important than killing innocent people.”
As coronavirus cases keep climbing and some states have been slow to implement mask orders, Nagy said she felt compelled to use her husband’s final message to push for change.
Then it went viral. Pictures of the obituary, which isn’t online, have been shared tens of thousands of times on Twitter and Facebook.
“I was angry at the situation and the way people are talking and treating the pandemic, the way people act like this is nothing,” Stacey, 72, said in an interview with The Washington Post. “It’s because of their carelessness, and because of our politicians not getting control of this thing is why so many people are dying. I was just very, very angry. That’s why I wrote it and I meant everything I said in it.”
By the way if this seems familiar to you it is likely because an Arizona family did this very same thing just last month. (Link)
I really hope that this is the beginning of a trend and that in a month or two papers are filled with obituaries blaming Trump for the deaths that result from his criminal negligence in fighting the Coronavirus.
P.S. That is not to say that I want a lot of people to die from the virus, I just want Trump to be blamed when they do.
I mean, after all, it is his fault.
