On October 24th a victim of Trump and Fox News, posted this on Facebook:



On October 30th he posted:

"I have covid, so I'll be off Facebook. Prayers would be greatly appreciated."

On November 3rd he shared:

"Back in the emergency room pneumonia in both lungs."

On November 17th, he died.

In the interest of protecting privacy I will not share his name. He was a colleague of a friend. Very sad, in spite of him being misled and disregarding common sense.
