When I was a kid, I always loved it when Marvel and DC did crossover events.
Batman fighting the Hulk.
Superman fighting Spider-Man.
Dark Phoenix teaming up with Darkseid.
Bringing Greta Thunberg, the face of the global warming hoax, on to talk about the coronavirus is a bit like that. A true hoax crossover event.

Except I’m definitely not excited.
I am the opposite of excited. I am filled with a sense of dread and loathing.
Greta has not been getting the attention she so desperately needs lately. I’m sure she was calling CNN every day and crying, and eventually Jeff Zucker was like, “give the poor little titless mutant shiksa a spot on some crap with this virus crap.”
Some people say that if you don’t think this sickening little twerp is a really important person who knows a lot about everything, including infectious disease – you’re a sexist.
Let me see if I understand this: Dr. Oz and countless other men have been running in these cable news circuits for years spouting dangerous nonsense with few consequences, but a lot of y'all decided 17 year-old Greta Thunberg is a step too far. And that's not sexism? Do tell.

Others are simply confused as to what exactly is even implied by making Greta a coronavirus commentator.
Greta Thunberg is appearing on a CNN Townhall on Climate Ch…
No, it’s on Coronavirus.
Okay, now I’m confused.

What place does Greta Thunberg have in this town hall? pic.twitter.com/qIKOCV8QcP

I’m not confused, however.
In fact, I predicted a cross-marketing scheme involving global warming and the coronavirus all the way back in February.
It just makes good business sense for both hoaxes.
