Stupid: Central Florida’s The Villages Has 3 New COVID Deaths And 23 New Cases, But They Voted for Trump Anyway


We’re following the Villages in Central Florida because they seem to be typical of Trump voters: older and white. Trump had a rally there at the end of October. Since then, cases and deaths from coronavirus continue to rise. They voted for Trump anyway. A team of shrinks should go in there and study these people. They are really stupid. Does no one wear a mask in this place?

The indefatigable Larry Croom writes in the local website:

“Three more local residents have died of COVID-19 as more cases of the deadly virus continue to be identified across the tri-county area.

“All three of the latest fatalities were residents of Lake County. They were identified Thursday by the Florida Department of Health as:

86-year-old woman who tested positive Oct. 12;
84-year-old man who tested positive Oct. 14; and
86-year-old man who tested positive Nov. 9.

“Twenty-three new COVID-19 cases were reported Thursday in and around The Villages. Those include:

The Villages (Sumter, Lake and Marion counties) up three for a total of 896;
Leesburg up seven for a total of 1,534;
Lady Lake up four for a total of 412;
Summerfield up four for a total of 476;
Wildwood up three for a total of 481;
Fruitland Park up one for a total of 213; and
Belleview up one for a total of 413.

“Sumter County is now reporting 3,114 cases – an increase of six from Wednesday to Thursday – among 1,766 men, 1,317 women, 14 non-residents and 17 people listed as unknown. A total of 225 cases have been reported in long-term care centers and 803 in correctional facilities. There have been 89 deaths and 301 people treated in area hospitals.

“The Villages continues to pace Sumter County with 845 cases – an increase of three in a 24-hour period. Besides those mentioned above in Wildwood, others have been identified in Coleman (716), Bushnell (360, 165 of which are at the Sumter Correctional Institution among 106 inmates and 48 staff members), Oxford (152), Webster (116), Lake Panasoffkee (87), Center Hill (60), Sumterville (58) and the Lady Lake portion of the county (47). The federal prison in Coleman also is reporting 138 cases among 32 inmates and 106 staff members.”
