Jennifer Rubin, a self-proclaimed ‘conservative’ columnist at the Washington Post, predicted more Republicans will die from coronavirus than Democrats.
She made the ghoulish prediction during an appearance on MSNBC’s Sunday morning “AM Joy.”
Rubin suggested Republicans will be more susceptible to succumbing to the virus because they refuse to give in to pack mentality and panic as the media would like.Could not load the poll.
Republicans Are Older
Rubin began by suggesting Fox News would be to blame because they misinform their ‘older’ viewers.
“There is a particular cruelty – irony – that it is their core viewers, the Republican older viewers, who are the most at risk,” she began.
Rubin then claimed that because Democrats had halted their political rallies, Republican supporters would be spreading the disease.
“I hate to put it this way, but there will be less Democrat deaths because there will be less mass gatherings, there will be less opportunities for people to congregate and share this horrible disease,” she claimed without evidence. “So it is really a very short-sighted strategy.”
Jennifer Rubin wishes more Republicans die of coronavirus than Democrats.
This isn’t surprising once you consider that in August 2019 she also wished that the Republican Party should be “burned down” and that there were no “survivors”

“I think now the name of the game is how do they [Fox] get back on Planet Earth. And part of the way that I think that they are doing it is down the memory hole,” she claimed.
“‘He jumped right on this right away because of all this planning that we’re doing so well,’ which is head-spinning for the rest of us who watched him for weeks say this was a hoax,” Rubin falsely stated. “But this is how they do it at Fox News.”
There is a certain cruelty – irony – to the fact that Rubin, someone who has experienced symptoms of Trump Derangement Syndrome for years now, would accuse anybody of not being on Planet Earth.
This is ghoulish and craven, even by Jennifer Rubin standards. Why does anyone feel the agency to politicize pain and possible death? It is GODLESS. https://t.co/q9cp7oQn5V

‘Conservative’ jennifer rubin coronavirus
She has a years-long resume to the contrary, but it should be noted that Jennifer Rubin still lists herself as a “conservative opinion writer” in her bio.

This is, after all, the same woman who said the Republican party needs to be “burned down” until there are no “survivors.”
Anyone with three functioning brain cells – two more than is required to work at the Washington Post – can see Rubin is not a conservative. And she’d barely a writer – a talented one anyway – at that.
If borderline cheering for more Republicans to die from the coronavirus outbreak to prove a point that Fox News is supposedly misinforming their viewers isn’t proof enough, we don’t know what is.
