Jordan Klepper didn’t learn the information at present, oh boy.
The far-left comedian clearly missed the rising wave of knowledge, AKA science, displaying states which might be reopening their economies aren’t killing their residents in mass numbers.
In truth, simply the opposite is happening.
JPMorgan has a devastating piece arguing that an infection charges have declined — not elevated — in states the place lockdowns have ended, “even after allowing for an appropriate measurement lag.” (Kolonavic)

The media narrative up so far, alas, advised us the exact opposite. Outlet after outlet predicted catastrophes for states like Florida and Georgia for permitting a modicum of “Normal” to return.
They have blood on their arms, some literally argued.
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis excoriated the media earlier this week for his or her Fake News methods.
That didn’t cease Klepper and the parents at “The Daily Show” to disregard the info on the bottom. And, in flip, mock these determined to return to their jobs — and put meals on their tables.
The lockdown protesters.
Klepper introduces two nurses who’re protesting the anti-lockdown protests in North Carolina. One nurse says she’s “excited” as a result of she will get to “be a foil to the madness about to happen.”
Klepper refers back to the lockdown protesters as “a small number of outside voices.” Did Klepper examine the crowds, going individual to individual to see the place every hailed from?
Of course not. He’s safely tucked away in his residence, accumulating his paycheck. How a lot of these protesters are getting theirs?
“What do you think their ultimate message is?” Klepper asks the nurse.
“They want a haircut,” she says in her greatest Karen voice, ignoring the oh, so apparent ache these persons are struggling.
These nurses, Klepper mentioned, are combating each the virus and the “bulls***.”
Left unsaid amidst the snark — being outdoor is a a lot safer place to be in response to science. Closed areas, like New York City subways which have been saved unsantized for weeks within the Big Apple, are way more harmful throughout a pandemic.
If you’re ready for Klepper to excoriate New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo for his disastrous policies … preserve ready.
And let’s not neglect one thing the mainstream media desperately need us to reminiscence gap. The overwhelming majority of individuals dying of the virus are the aged, many living in nursing homes.
The common age of those that have died from the coronavirus in Pennsylvania is 80, and nearly all of deaths passed off in nursing properties….
Pennsylvania Health Secretary Rachel Levine has additionally been criticized for the choice to maneuver her 95-year-old mom out of “a personal care home” but in addition advised nursing properties throughout the state they need to settle for coronavirus sufferers.
Seems just like the job for a truth-telling comedian to discover, no? Again, don’t rely on Klepper speeding in any time quickly.
Every life is treasured, however most anti-lockdown protesters are far youthful than that demographic, they usually’re marching outdoor in a state with far fewer deaths than, say, New York.
Now, nurses are actually on the entrance traces. They’re serving to sick Americans get higher and aiding others too sick to get better. That doesn’t make them resistant to criticism. Nor does it protect them from getting used as props by late night time comics, apparently.
Klepper isn’t alone right here. Both Stephen Colbert and Jimmy Kimmel, millionaires many instances over and nonetheless cashing paychecks, have mocked lockdown protesters. Other celebrities have completed the identical, from the consolation of their mansions.
