Barstool Sports’ Dave Portnoy lets loose with profane monologue against coronavirus lockdowns

Barstool founder Dave Portnoy, known by fans as “El Presidente,” went viral Wednesday on Twitter with a profane rant fighting back against coronavirus lockdowns.

Entitled “Emergency Press Conference – When Did Flattening The Curve Turn Into Finding The Cure,” Portnoy emotionally warned about the plight of Americans confused over whether to stay home or go back out in the world to make a living.

“I would rather die of corona… or take my chances… I don’t want to start over,” he yelled. “There are no great options but you can’t just decimate the entire economy.”

In the U.S., as in many countries, the lockdowns have helped trigger catastrophic levels of job losses. The U.S. unemployment rate soared to 14.7 percent in April, the highest rate since the Great Depression. Roughly 30 million Americans have been out of work.

“Are we just done as humans? … You have to take risks! We’re Americans!” Portney stressed.

Watch the video below. Strong language warning:

People responded strongly to this.

It’s easy to see why Portnoy struck a nerve here.

People know we can’t go like this for much longer.
