He's not a conspiracy theorist, he's a manchild having a tantrum. He's annoyed by the measures people are taking to, you know, not die. So now he's got to come up with a way to cope. There's nothing really good to blame on the current state of affairs. Sure it's China's fault it started, but now it's become a natural disaster. We can blame China all we want but there's still a pandemic happening. So, just blame "the man" for doing, uh, *spins random conspiracy wheel* intentionally ruining the economy. For reasons.I forget his actual age, but I think he's in the same age bracket as Chris (nearing 40), similar lifestyle still living at home with Mom. Never had him down as a tin foil hat type, in summary he thinks the virus is down to world governments trying to crash the economy. "Government agents posing as people who are sick from it".
He's the type of vapid idiot who doesn't care about anything until it directly affects him. He's probably mad at everyone else for panic hoarding just because he can't easily panic hoard himself.
