5. Dont know who he is

Reading his tweets though, he does talk about social distancing and wearing a mask. He doesnt come across
as Covid is a hoax type person.

13. He's the 2nd oldest member of the Senate, from Iowa.

and Senate Pro-Tempore, meaning he's 3rd in line to the Presidency after Pelosi. He's just as corrupt as other Republicans.

He was all over the news during the ACA fight. He used Death Panels nauseam.

15. That is simply untrue

Although the death rate goes way up with age, in his 80ís, Covid is still only deadly in less than 15% of patients, and the vast majority of those are in people with a comorbidity.

Thatís still ridiculously dangerous, but Covid is NOT an automatic death sentence.

Without know Grassleys health history, outside his age he has a much greater chance of living, and surviving this disease. Hopefully he was serious about wearing masks, and social distancing, as some of his past statements indicate, and his viral load was somewhat low.

I am not downplaying how dangerous the situation can be, but itís not all doom and gloom either.

19. He'll likely get pumped with it anyway.

So it's a moot point.

He'll live.

9. That's the first "positive" thing I've heard from Chuck Grassley in years.



Hope he gets through this okay.

21. I don't... I remember the old fucker saying younger men just wanted to chase women & watch movies..

Instead of working non-stop around the clock to make something of themselves. It's pathetic how those who have made it big and rich, disrespect all those after them for not succeeding after they changed all the rules to make it much harder to impossible on those following.

The 'I got mine, fuck you!' geezer needs to work that virus out of himself instead of wanting mercy, like he demands of and from others.
