Re: Corona Virus Whackadoodles, Whackjobs and Conspiracy Theories (other than from the White House)

I have a FB "friend", an MD, who has been "outraged" that AOC hasn't called out the meme for being sexist and racist. I said the term was really about people not getting the irony of context. Nope. COrtez should be removed from office for allowing this racist and sexist meme without comment. The nos...
