“’What Is It Worth?’ is a critical take on the political stance around the Coronavirus Pandemic in the United States. It features a parodied eBay listing of President Trump merchandise, and a Covid-19 hotspot map. The Coronavirus is costing the United States Thousands of lives, an estimated One Trillion Dollars, and has been turned into a political statement of Left vs. Right. This sentiment is so deeply engrained that political allegiance is more important than a human life; it’s not blue vs. red, it’s instead science vs. fiction and life vs. death.”
