"OK, we get it! COVID is the precious, and you love it. You love COVID so much you want it to spread into schools, at the office, in the Walmart, on the cruise ships, and in the club," Reid said. "That great spongy ball with the red spikes, you want it pumping through your veins with an Ivermectin chaser. Why do you love it so dadgum much? We have absolutely no bloody idea."
Reid stated how troubled she was by the notion that some conservatives love COVID-19 while "everyone else hates COVID."
The former 2008 campaign staffer for President Barack Obama took the time to list the myriad places the virus is ravaging, including Southern Illinois, where Reid claims zero ICU beds are available.
The liberal host then recounted the story of a man and wife who both reportedly died of the disease and left behind five children.

"If misinformation could kill. It all helps to explain why Gov. Gavin Newsom beat the recall effort and by a lot," Reid said. "Republicans, your thirst for COVID is why you lost. Nobody likes your policies that threaten our safety and our kids."
Reid's monologue was met with categorical objections from conservatives on Twitter.
Partisan generalizations like these only contribute to the politicization of the pandemic, ultimately doing significantly more harm than good. https://t.co/X5G83pTJOR

One journalist called Reid a "poisonous human being" who "doesn't care about the lives of conservatives and Republicans."
Nicole Saphier, a bestselling author and physician, posted that voices such as Reid only hurt efforts to beat the virus.
"Partisan generalizations like these only contribute to the politicization of the pandemic, ultimately doing significantly more harm than good," she wrote.
