You did it! A 78 year old, white guy millionaire is finally President! The progress you fought so hard for on Facebook and Twitter is reality.

After the last few weeks, I’m glad of the peaceful transition of power.

Hoorah, a sensible POTUS after the Trumptoad disaster. Wonderful to see Kamala Harris dressed like Lisa from The Simpsons and being sworn in as Vice President. Hallelujah Pilgrims rejoice in serving under POTUS Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris.
Now of Duetsche Bank & others call.in their loans Trumptoad & family are into insolvency/ bankruptcy territory.
Trumptoad's negligence has killed more US citizens than the Nazis and Japanese did in WW2, that's a standout achievement​ for any POTUS, be responsible for more US citizens killed than Hitler. No wonder Trump appeals to fascists.

But most of the US deaths were Democrats. persons of color, and poor so they don't count in Republican minds.

Can that be true? A real failure if so. My understanding is that the elderly vote Republican and die from Covid. So managing to kill more young Democrats means they have been put at risk, forced to work, commute, and study in unsafe environments, to prop up the profits of a few billionaires.

I would be surprised, though not too surprised (also, however many deaths in prisons I'm pretty sure neither Democrats nor Republicans count convicts as people, or let them vote).

Why is the pot not decriminalized? I demand that more important matters be put on hold immediately.

Those former wall builders and Keystone XL Pipeline employees are gonna need a little pick-me-up after losing their jerbs. HE TOOK THEIR JERBS!

Flash, that doesn't include anywhere near enough data to answer my question.

According to this https://www.cdc.gov/nchs/nvss/vsrr/covi ... #AgeAndSex
The US has had 279k deaths in over 65s.

that is ~70% of all deaths.

Of course it's not true. The idea that Democrats, ethnic minorities, and the less well off not counting to Republicans is pure political bigotry with no basis in reality. As for whether most deaths are from Democrats, it's impossible to say. Although I share your suspicion that the age demographic makes it more likely that Republican leaning populations have fared somewhat worse.

I'd be astounded if neither Democrats nor Republicans saw prisoners as people. But obviously they shouldn't be allowed to vote.

Black and Hispanic people are disproportionately affected https://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/volumes/69/wr/mm6942e1.htm

“ Disparities in COVID-19 incidence and deaths among Hispanic persons and other underrepresented racial and ethnic groups are well documented”

Yes, we know both sides are full of bigots. A well established fact. What does that have to do with who died of COVID-19?

Did PM BJ block NPR and CNBC ?
Republican elected officials objected to counting the votes in Pennslyvania before mail in (disproportionately urban, black) votes were counted.

Also in Georgia and Arizona

This was in conjuction with the attempted coup on Jan 6
