Arizona GOP Chair Tells Lockdown Protesters To Wear Scrubs Since Counter-Protesters Aren’t Really Nurses

In today’s chapter of Republican assholery:

Kelli Ward, the head of the Republican Party in Arizona, told those planning to protest stay-at-home orders aimed at limiting the spread of COVID-19 to dress in scrubs and masks on Twitter.

Ward also seemed to suggest that some health workers engaging in counterprotests across the country were not really health workers.

The tweet came days after Ward took to Twitter to cast doubt on reports about health care workers who had blocked protesters demonstrating against stay-at-home orders in Denver earlier this month.

Perhaps needless to say, there have been no reports of people impersonating nurses at counter-protests. In fact, a number of these nurses have been named and interviewed after their silent stands against idiocy.

RELATED: Ward last appeared on JMG when she sent an email blast vowing to stop Senate candidate Mark Kelly “dead in the tracks.” Prior to that, she appeared on JMG when her husband was accused of literally spitting on a former campaign staffer. In 2018, she claimed John McCain planned his cancer announcement to thwart her run for the Senate. Seriously.
