On December 10, the state of California recorded 32,988 Covid-19 cases. Actor Kirk Acevedo, who’s also a self-confessed political junkie, had tweeted, “California has 32,988 Covid-19 cases today. That’s more cases than every single country in the world except for Brazil which has 54,203 cases. Let me say that again. ONE F*****G STATE IN THE U.S. HAS MORE CASES THAN EVERY SINGLE F*****G COUNTRY IN THE WORLD…. EXCEPT FOR ONE!” Debra tweeted the same saying, “Trump will go down in the history books as being responsible for the most catastrophic FAILURE in US History. Call the HAGUE.”
Debra then quote tweeted Director General of the World Health Organization, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, where he’d shared a video of German chancellor Angela Merkel urging, rather begging citizens in an emotional appeal to follow coronavirus restrictions as cases surge in the European country. Debra lashed out at Trump in harsh words, writing, “AMERICA. THIS is a LEADER. @realDonaldTrump you are a weak, scared, stupid, inept, negligent, vindictive, narcissistic, criminal. I hope you live a long life in prison where you become the most popular boyfriend to the all inmates.”
“I really am sorry, from the bottom of my heart. But if the price we pay is 590 deaths a day then this in unacceptable.”

This week, Merkel pleaded with lawmakers and citizens alike to accept stringent coronavirus restrictions over the Christmas and New Year period. The country has been under a partial lockdown and social distancing rules have been imposed since November 2. Health Minister Jens Spahn and the country’s National Academy of Science have been calling for an extension to the Christmas school break and for all businesses, except essentials, to be shut between Christmas eve to January 10. Merkel has backed these recommendations and also opposed hotels from opening over the holiday period.
On a day when a record daily death toll of 590 people was reported, Merkel recognized the urgency of the situation and took it up with the German parliament, the Bundestag, that restrictions over the holiday period were crucial. “As hard as it is and I know much love has gone into setting up the mulled wine stands and waffle stalls, this is not compatible with the agreement we made to only take food away to eat at home,” she said on Wednesday, according to a Newsweek report.
“I’m sorry, I really am sorry from the bottom of my heart, but if the price we pay is 590 deaths a day then that is unacceptable in my view,” she said drawing thunderous applause. She also said that school holidays should start earlier, asking, “What will we say when we look back on this once-in-a-century event if we weren’t able to find a solution for these three days?”
“I only want to say: If we have too many contacts now in the run-up to Christmas and it ends up being the last Christmas with our grandparents then we will have done something wrong, we should not let this happen,” she said to further applause. All this while her government has faced criticism over its handling of the pandemic, especially from the right-wing Alternative for Germany (AfD) whose co-leader in parliament, Alice Weidel, called for an end to “counterproductive lockdowns” on Wednesday. Christian Lindner, leader of the pro-business Free Democrats (FDP) said lockdown restrictions were ineffective and “disproportionately undermine personal freedom”.
