So she adds,  “If the Republicans, starting with President Trump on down, want [to make] a comparison, then they should welcome such an investigation themselves.”

 

Oh snap.

He petitioned against school mask mandates and turned refusal to get shots into a political statement, negatively linking them to President Joe Biden. Bledsoe died of COVID at age 41, leaving a wife and four children.
