Republican Representative Trey Hollingsworth has revealed what Republicans think of American citizens, and apparently it isn’t great. Hollingsworth is in hot water for saying that letting people die from Coronavirus would be the “lesser of two evils” when compared to letting the economy continue to flounder. Hollingsworth and plenty of other Republicans will gladly sacrifice American lives at the altar of the market, as Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins explains.
