Trump-Loving CNBC Analyst Suggests ‘Infecting Everyone With Coronavirus And Get It Over With’

Do you want to see what this nation has become? What it values, and the impact of economic inequality? Want to see raw capitalism at its absolute fiercest? Want to see life in the real Trump-America, where the only thing that matters is money and power?

Here, have some of this and sit back, realizing this is an educated and sophisticated man, not some buck-toothed, backwoods OAN interviewee, it is Rick Santelli of CNBC and he wants his market back:

“Of course, people are getting nervous. And listen, I’m not a doctor. I’m not a doctor. All I know is, think about how the world would be if you tried to quarantine everybody because of the generic-type flu. Now I’m not saying this is the generic-type flu. But maybe we’d be just better off if we gave it to everybody, and then in a month it would be over because the mortality rate of this probably isn’t going to be any different if we did it that way than the long-term picture, but the difference is we’re wreaking havoc on global and domestic economies.”

This mother fffff, is truly indoctrinated. This is not just like the flu, the fcker is buying into Trump’s “hunch” that the 3.6% mortality rate is way too high – more like “one” percent, which is still higher than the flu. In fact, in the United States, if one believes Trump’s CDC numbers (which I don’t), the mortality rate is 7% because so “few” have been tested, the deaths stick out rather starkly.

But none of that shit matters because Rick Santelli wants his g-damned market back and he is betting he survives even if your grandma (or you) dies. He gets his market back and his money back. Actually, want to know a secret? He knows that they won’t make him get the virus. He’s the 1% and knows he’ll just “make a call.” That is just how it is in his mind.

Forget the fact that this cannot happen and will never happen. What  kind of sick fck can actually go on TV and say this shit? It isn’t some morbid joke among traders on the floor – he’s stating it on TV. He CLEARLY wants people to ignore the danger so that his market – and his money – come back.

This is unbridled capitalism. That is unpasteurized capitalism. It is vicious and unrepentant. He knows people would die, and he couldn’t give a fck. They are collateral damage. The 1% needs to gorge itself. He needs to get back that $8 million he lost. One can’t get by on $32 million. He needs his $40 million or the mountain house is in jeopardy. I am making up numbers, not the greed.

Welcome to post-truth, post-caring, post-thought, world. Get your portfolio up to 1% or good luck. Go to work or you’ll be fired. You don’t matter. He wants his money back.


Peace, y’all
