Hanoi Jane Stands Upon 200,000 Dead People to Declare Why COVID Is ‘God’s Gift to the Left’

Jane Fonda is a sick puppy. Is COVID bad or good? She gives a rather odd answer. No, that’s not the right word. She gives a ghoulish answer, noting that she feels the virus has been “God’s gift to the Left” because it’s exposed Trump for who he is or something. Yeah, forget the 200,000+ people who died. Forget about how half of that total is due to Democratic governors forcing nursing homes to admit COVID-positive patients. COVID is great because it could boot Trump from office. She really is no different that her younger self who palled around with communist insurgents in Vietnam back in the day. She sat on an anti-aircraft gun, joked around with America’s enemies, and trashed the country. Hanoi Jane is a traitor, a ghoul, and totally in keeping with someone who is Trump deranged (via Free Beacon):

Fear TWD Stars Game For Avengers-Style Crossover With The Walking Dead

The stars of Fear the Walking Dead say they’re game for an Avengers: Endgame-style crossover with The Walking Dead that would bring together the casts of both shows. In Fear‘s sixth season, Morgan (Lennie James) and his group of zombie apocalypse survivors, including Luciana (Danay Garcia) and June (Jenna Elfman), find themselves dispersed across different western settlements controlled by Virginia (Colby Minifie). But Garcia, who compares the characters to “Marvel superheroes,” is ready to assemble survivors from the two shows for the most exciting crossover in the history of the Walking Dead Universe.

“I would love for it to happen and I, honestly, don’t have any preference [who to crossover with],” Garcia told TooFab. “I would love to work with Carol. I love [actress Melissa McBride], I got to meet her in person many times and I love her as a person. I just love our universe

The Grateful Dead will mark the 50th anniversary of their American Beauty by releasing another “Angel’s Share,” a companion collection of never-before-heard demos, alternate mixes and outtakes from the LP, Number 215 on Rolling Stone‘s new list of the 500 Greatest Albums.

The October 15th arrival of American Beauty: The Angel’s Share follows the July 2020 release of Workingman’s Dead: The Angel’s Share which similarly excavated the band’s vaults from that 1970 album’s recording sessions. Both were released as a gift to fans separate from each album’s respective 50th-anniversary edition.

Ahead of the full 56-song digital release from American Beauty: The Angel’s Share, the Grateful Dead have shared 10 demos featuring the entirety of American Beauty — sans “Box of Rain” — in its early studio form, as well as a demo for “To Lay Me Down,” later included on Jerry Garcia’s first solo album Garcia.
