Sharon Stone called Donald Trump a “killer” in a new Instagram post that revealed her sister’s husband is hospitalized with COVID-19 along with her sister following the deaths of two other family members.
“My sister and her husband are fighting for their lives, and my sister is not doing well,” she said in the emotional video posted late Sunday.
She said her adopted grandmother and godmother already died of the disease.
The “Casino” star said her sister, Kelly Stone, has the autoimmune disease lupus but wasn’t able to get tested for the coronavirus in Montana until she showed symptoms.
“When they say there are tests for everyone, they’re lying,” Stone, 62, said in her video, claiming the nurses in the hospital treating her sister and brother-in-law also lack tests for themselves.
“People are dying and fighting for their lives because there’s nothing but lies and because the people at the governors’ houses, the people at the health departments are simply so overwhelmed, that they’re not answering the phones. They’re hanging up and they’re not returning calls,” she said.
“The only thing that’s gonna change this is if you vote, and if you vote for (Joe) Biden, and if you vote for Kamala Harris,” she said, referring to the presumptive Democratic nominee and his running mate, the senator from California.
“With women in power, we will fight for our families. We will fight for people to live, and we will fight for people to get tested,” Stone said.
She argued that countries with women in leadership have done better during the pandemic, an apparent nod to leaders including New Zealand’s Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern and Germany’s Chancellor Angela Merkel.
“And please whatever you do, don’t vote for a killer,” Stone said, referencing Trump. “Thank you.”
Kelly Stone posted a video from her hospital bed Monday, describing her symptoms while receiving oxygen.
“Today is not a good day. I’m very weak,” she said, struggling to speak. “This is so hard. My husband’s fever has gone up, and it just seems crazy at day 14 to feel so bad, but I know people have been much worse.”
Kelly said she was on her third day of treatment with the antiviral drug remdesivir.
“I’m just trying to keep the hope,” she said in the short video.
