GOP Lawmaker Sparks Outrage After Mocking Record COVID ‘Cases’ As US Death Toll Nears 290,000




Florida State Representative Anthony Sabatini sparked angry backlash online this weekend after he appeared to mock news coverage of the raging coronavirus pandemic which has claimed nearly 290,000 American lives.

The Republican legislator, who represents the state’s 32nd House district in Lake County west of Orlando, tweeted: “CASES!!!!! OMG CASES!!!!! THERE ARE CASES!!! MORE CASES!!!! CASES ARE GOING UP!!!!!!!! CASESESESESESES!!!! CASES WENT UP!!!!! OMG!!!!!! THERES MORE CASES!!!!!!!! CASES!!!!!!!!!!! CASES INCREASED!!! THERE ARE CASES!!!! CASES CASES CASES—WOW CASES WENT UP!!!!!SCARY CASES! WOW.”



Sabatini’s callus tweet drew stinging rebukes from journalists who noted that his tweet came on the very same day that the daily death toll from the coronavirus reached the highest reported so far during the pandemic. More than 2,800 deaths were reported on Wednesday, according to Johns Hopkins University. The previous highest death toll was recorded in mid-April.
