it will be counted as death by the wuhan virus
The long arm of the Trump Curse grabs yet another.
I am, quite honestly, not sure what to think about this.
He had “resigned” the rotating mayorship but still remained on the city council, IIRC. This resolves that problem.
The Trump Curse is a heck of a thing...
See my prior post above. He didn’t fully resign - looks like the Trump Curse got him.
Hmmmm. Another anti Trump physician. How weird is that? Suicide? Guess he didn’t finish at the top of his class? But, still ‘doctor’.
Arrogant pricks and airplanes are frequently a bad mix.
Uh-oh....To the Left, this will be death #1 on the Trump death list (they gotta have something to counter the Clinton death list)
I hope he didnt say something stupid before he got into his plane, like I bet my life Trump wont get reelected.
NTSB said pilot reported engine failure after take off. Water in fuel froze? Frequent failure.

Many small towns operate this way so his stepping down was meaningless. I used to watch when cable access showed a few of towns counsel meetings it was the same people but they just took turns being mayor it was like very slow motion musical chairs.
From the ‘mail’ piece:
“He told the Auburn Journal a week ago that his Facebook posts were made on a personal page and that ‘this has nothing to do with my job. I reposted it.’
He added that he ‘absolutely’ believes Trump is a racist.”
Based on? Main stream lies? Pure speculation? Saw it on the interweb?
Itll be recorded as a Covid death.
Flying when your mind is elsewhere has claimed a lot of lives. This dude thought he was in control, but he was in the middle of a national controversy and made an ass of himself, had to resign as mayor and issued an apology.
That is precisely when NOT to climb into the cockpit. The day you got divorced, big trouble at work, that day after a funeral, etc.
Another Wuhan Flu related death. When will this pandemic end?!
KKK - Karma Killed Kirby
