  1. America will just be a larger bankruptcy than Trump is used to. We’re watching this country burn every time he tries to hide facts and mislead the public.

      When a president doesn’t heave warnings and it starts killing American citizens he does not get to keep being our President and keep lying to us and keep telling us false b******* every time he comes on TV or he tweets no president has the authority to gamble with our lives

    • Correction. Nothing until January 2021. And that is the scariest part.

    • Are only veterans patriotic?

  7. I’m mightily impressed by MAGA … only the US could have managed that by electing an imbecile orange criminal and allowing him to remain in office.

      Trump lost the Pop. Vote by almost 3mil votes
      TRUMP won the Electorial College Vote by about 70,000 votes in 3 states
      TRUMP GAMED THE SYSTEM using Weapons grade AI software
      and stolen data from 87mil AMERICAN’S Facebook accounts.

    • WANT hm to stay in office! Good grief!

    • wasn’t ELECTED by the People, but your point is noted.

  8. He’s uselessly incompetent.

  9. American bankruptcy will be tubby’s crowning achievement.

      @GX Minn how would he have doubled those numbers? Possibly by putting food on tables and keeping businesses afloat so there’s jobs to go back to?

    • @David Peterson 👄$550B bailouts for corporations; $3T bailout to stock market; $1,200 to individuals (one time); run out of $ for small businesses; people are running of $ to buy food; no $ to pay bills/rent; 36M unemployed; no medical insurance (refused to extend medicaid); no jobs to return to!! Yep…trump has done a lot!!

      @Rene Curry Well I’m glad I live in a red state. 113 deaths out of 3.3 million people. 18 months unemployment benefits in reserve. No freedoms stripped away. Best wishes to the blue States where the vast majority of The covid 19 infections are.PS, you forgot about the 600 a week added to unemployment insurance.

    • Jonah Falcon | May 28, 2020 at 4:36 PM | Reply

      David Peterson it’s not because they are blue states 💩 head it’s because they hold more people in those states. Y’all only have 113 deaths because y’all only have like 113,000 people in the whole state. Your 💩 state probably also doesn’t get many visitors or travelers from outside the country since you probably live in a over flyover state.

    • David Peterson | May 28, 2020 at 4:43 PM | Reply

      @Jonah Falcon What part of 3.3 million ppl is too difficult for you to understand. Also, my state thrives on visitors Revenue both domestic and foreign. It’s obviously managed better and the people are friendly, respectful and family-oriented.PS, Wyoming has the smallest population in the country at almost 600,000 you dumb donkey!

  10. Winning with Trump! The Messiah of the Morons! As always, Dems will be cleaning up after yet another Republican catastrophe …

  11. All this as Donnie fiddles with cold cases while cities are aflame.

    • But his golf game is improving!

    • Democrat cities….doofie….you left that out. Dems aren’t that great at maintaining race relations.

    • @R L T You mean it’s harder to maintain race relations in a diverse city than your shithole small town where you and your sister-cousins were born and (in)bred?
      Mind. Blown.

    • ronny raygunz | May 28, 2020 at 3:34 PM | Reply

      @Tim implying white people are inbred is racist. Apologize.

    • @Tyson w theoretically, but have you actually seen him hit a golf ball? Due to the size of his mid girth “they” say is morbid obesity, and the angle of sight required from5 feet 8 inches away, it would be nigh on impossible for him to see the ball. Therefore the many many girlie swings before being qued to pretend like he hit the ball. Unfortunately, the lack of any response from those around him indicates he MISSED.

  12. what a friggen mess you stable genius has caused

    All he cares about is golfing and tweeting and fighting with twitter while people lose their jobs and lives from the #TrumpVirus

    • I vomit when I see this so called presidents fans defend him which means they are just as uncaring and nasty as he is. I vomit when I see this presidents little greasy hands that his fans lick like little puppies

      Fantasies of justice for that orange cretin can bring a bit of levity: imprisonment in portapotty, or awakening abandoned in a huge foreign city , sans makeup, hairdresser, money, ID; having been gently bathed/stained completely in something like black walnut hull solution. He’d sit on ground & cry.

      He has nothing – Deutsche Bank has it all.

  16. Vote the orange clown out from the Whitehouse this coming election, the US future depends on it.

  17. 40 million Americans are unemployed, over 100K Americans have died of COVID-19 and Trumps plays golf. Trump could care less!


    • @R L T you are a cult following imbecile infidel who should be deported along with your dear leader.

    • @paul lovallo Obama’s economic policies gave this country the greatest GDP, Trump is still benefiting from that windfall, if you have no education in simple economics, then deport yourself with your dear leader, you red hat wearing snowflake.

    • @jason royale Revisionist history tactics from the red hat wearing cult maggots won’t ever become main stream. MAGA should be deported along with their dear leader.

      It is a clarification, and a fact, and a sad one at that, which so many people just don’t see. I still see people who refuse to wear masks. Is it me, or what. What is it so hard about wearing a mask.

    • @red is for freedom blue is for losers, There’s a big difference between kneeling down, and bending over. Figure it out! By the way, nobody looks look in brown lipstick, pal.
