Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Cracks in the wall. As far as I can see and hear (on the radio), only artists and stand-up comedians dare questioning the official narrative.

He noted a stat from the CDC about how "78% of the people who died or went to the hospital were obese."

"So, the fact that America, the medical establishment, never even attempted to get people to live a healthier lifestyle as a response to this pandemic is a giant scandal to me"

Probably a bit late to launch a campaign for a healthier lifestyle "in response to this pandemic." That sort of education and disincentive programme (eg sugar taxes) is a long term project which should have been happening ever since obesity became  major problem.
