COVID 19 has caused me to think about doctors…

Sure, but not the way you’re thinking I’m thinking.

Right after the 2016 election, I spoke to two MDs about the horrible shock this had been to the system.

Both told me that a lot of doctors they knew had voted for Trump. I was incredulous. Why would anyone with an education or common sense or…anything, really, vote for Trump? I could not understand it.

Their wallets, I was told.

Yeah, yeah, I know that whole myth, I’d heard it before: you vote Republican to protect the integrity of your fat wallet.

How many decades of GOP governmental mal-management, incompetence and soothing dopey “philosophies” must pass into the dark dens of history before a moderately informed person stops for a second and says, “Uh, wait a minute here. The financial catastrophes we’ve suffered have all occurred under Republican administrations. Ergo, if I’m concerned first and foremost with the thickness of my wallet, maybe my vote should go to Democratic competence.”

But doctors? Aside from the fat wallet excuse, am I to believe that doctors are more concerned with making $$$ than with caring for the health of patients?

I don’t. Still, I do want right here, right now to ask those medical professionals who were selfish and stupid enough to vote for Trump, what’s your professional opinion now?

Oh, and how’s your wallet doing?
