Former President Bill Clinton’s lowest moment is back in the news.
As usual, it involves a woman and a sex scandal.
And now this witness who exposed Bill Clinton’s biggest sex scandal just died.
Linda Tripp passed away after being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.
Most Americans know Tripp because Tripp recorded Monica Lewinsky gossiping to Tripp about her sexual relationship with then-President Bill Clinton.
Tripp’s audio tapes proved to be key evidence in what became the impeachment of Bill Clinton.
Clinton lied under oath about having sexual relations with Lewinsky and Congress impeached Clinton for perjuring himself.
Lewinsky expressed her sympathy to Tripp’s family on social media.
“No matter the past, upon hearing that Linda Tripp is very seriously ill, i hope for her recovery. i can’t imagine how difficult this is for her family,” Lewinsky tweeted.
Tripp’s family and friends could not properly mourn their loss because of the lockdown orders put in place by the government.
Government lockdowns ban mass gatherings and funerals, weddings, parties, and any other activity that would attract a large group of people is banned because of so-called “social distancing” measures designed to limit contact between people.
Many Americans are beginning to lose patience with the lockdowns.
The models that projected 240,000 Americans dying in the next several weeks all proved to be wrong.
Dr. Anthony Fauci now claims the death toll may reach 60,000.
Hospitals outside of New York City sit empty and are now firing staff because state governments ordered them to cancel all elective surgeries to maximize hospital capacity in anticipation of a surge in coronavirus patients that never arrived.
The downside is these elective surgeries provided the financial backbone of the United States hospital system.
Families like Tripp’s cannot mourn the loss of their loved ones during this pandemic because of these orders.
In addition to the personal tragedy, the virus and ensuing shutdowns are inflicting massive economic devastation on the country.
Over the course of the last three weeks, over 16 million Americans – ten percent of the workforce – lost their jobs and were forced to file for unemployment benefits.
There is no question the coronavirus is a dangerous virus.
Coronavirus is more contagious and deadly than the regular flu.
But the apocalyptic predictions failed to come to fruition.
That is leading many Americans to question the models that led health experts to recommend state lockdowns that choked off the economy.
During the second quarter, the U.S. unemployment rate is expected to sky rocket to 30 percent while economic growth contracts by 30 points.
These numbers are appalling, but not unexpected because the government turned off the economy.
Americans – like Linda Tripp’s family – are wondering when governments will lift these lockdowns and allow life to return back to normal.
Because of these measures, Tripp’s family – and other families – cannot mourn the loss of their loved ones.
