There are many white male boomers who'll die. Donald J. Trump has offered to be America's BIGGUS DICKUS for as long as God and his left-leaning son don't mind.

This might be the last you will hear from Pastor Spradlin. But did he mean well?

From Newsweek's story: Landon Spradlin, 66, a pastor and traveling musician, died on Wednesday, March 25, at a hospital in North Carolina after testing positive for COVID-19.

As first reported by Patch, nearly two weeks before his death Spradlin shared a meme on his Facebook page suggesting the media "can manipulate your life."

The post compared the "mass hysteria" surrounding the number of deaths from the coronavirus in the U.S. while Donald Trump has been president compared to the deaths from H1N1 under Barack Obama's administration.

Spradlin wrote that while he knows COVID-19 is real, the "real issue" is "the media is pumping out fear and doing more harm than good.

"It will come and it will go," he added.

Facebook has since flagged the post as displaying "partly false information" after being reviewed by independent fact-checkers.

Following reports of his death, Spradlin's Facebook page has been littered with people mocking and criticizing him for his views on the virus.
