Trump Supporters Blamed for COVID-19 Deaths

( – A Rutgers University professor with a history of making inflammatory remarks about Trump supporters sounded off again. Associate Professor of Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Brittney Cooper tweeted that Trump supporters are responsible for the deaths of black Americans due to COVID-19. On Wednesday, she tweeted, “F— each and every Trump supporter.”

In a separate tweet, Cooper doubled down, saying she disdains every person who believes Trump is a good leader.

The problem for Cooper is the increased death rate of African-Americans from COVID-19 has nothing to do with Trump supporters.

According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), approximately 30% of all COVID-19 cases are among the black population. One reason the African-American community is more susceptible to the virus is due to prevalent underlying conditions. Health issues such as obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and asthma exist at higher rates in the black community.

In the past, Cooper said conservative Christians “invented a white supremacist Jesus.” On Thursday morning, Rutgers University declined to comment. In a brief statement, it said Cooper’s Twitter statements and beliefs do not represent the university and are her own.

She’s simply looking for any reason, no matter how far-fetched, to demonize Trump supporters.
