Trump supporter regrets not taking COVID seriously: ‘I feel like a drunk driver that killed his family’

A supporter of President Donald Trump told CNN’s Alisyn Camerota on Tuesday that he regrets following the president’s example by blowing off warnings about the novel coronavirus.

While appearing on CNN, Texas resident Tony Green admitted that he used to think the pandemic was a hoax until 14 members of his family came down with the novel coronavirus after attending a gathering at his home.

Green himself wound up getting hospitalized after contracting the virus, and two members of his family died as a result.

“I feel like a drunk driver that killed his family,” he said. “I know logically that, you know, we all came here on our own accord. We knew that there was a possible risk. But, you know, it’s my home. I’m the one that hosted. And, you know, somebody got sick.”

Green ended the interview by issuing a heartfelt mea culpa and urged supporters of the president to take the virus seriously.

“I’m falling on my sword,” he said. “It’s humiliating, embarrassing and hurtful and it’s just reminding me constantly, you know, what our family’s been through. So I’m doing that basically for awareness. I want to stop the spread.”

WATCH: Trump shamed Thanksgiving turkey for refusing to concede White House pardon contest

Published

It was just two years ago that President Donald Trump mocked a Thanksgiving turkey for refusing to concede the election for a White House pardon. As Thanksgiving 2020 approaches, Trump has officially become that turkey.

"This was a fair election... unfortunately, Carrots refused to concede and demanded a recount," Trump announced about the battle between Carrots and Peas.

"We're still fighting with Carrots," he joked in a speech. "And I will tell you, we've come to a conclusion: Carrots, I'm sorry to tell you, the results did not change. Too bad for Carrots."

It's unclear if Carrots still maintains the election was rigged, as President Trump does about the 2020 election. He joined Peas at Virginia Tech’s “Gobblers Rest” exhibit in Blacksburg, Virginia. There students and veterinarians within Virginia Tech’s Department of Animal and Poultry Sciences in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences care for all turkeys given a pardon.

“I feel like Sophie Scholl, since I've been active in the resistance, giving speeches, going to protests, distributing flyers," the woman says to the audience, referring to the famous "White Rose" resistance fighter who opposed the Nazis during World War II.
