  1. At this point I think the only thing left to try with the moron in chief is reverse psychology. Start demanding he do the opposite of what you want.

    • Shin you sound uneducated. Trump has turned the Republican Party into flat Earther anti vaxxer conspiracy theorist. So sad. 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

    • @Elizabeth Burton Why are you answering then? Seems like you got plenty of time. Just not the smarts to understand my comment though 🙁

      @Shin hey smartass , I’m a mum…. 5 times over…grandmum 9 times over… No tolerance for trolls . Here to watch the Rethuglicon shellacking of a lifetime by JOE BIDEN and all Democrat social media has to cover it. 2016 was a desperate appointment by right wing extremist to attain an agenda which is now coming to its end. They got their 4 year extension of a defunct political party. It’s over ….. November looms

    • @Matt Thompson first of all you need a doctor
      Yes. We seen the letters and followed the hearing’s First hand and not the twisted and biased right wing news version .
      Clearly you never been in Seattle.
      The headquarters of major companies are in that city full of people very well off. Who told you the fairytale about heroin addicts taken over the city.
      You and all the members of the cult live in la la land.
      Look up Trump or watch a documentary. Trump is not the man you think he is. He is a con man all his life. From the sort that would be in jail in my country and not even allowed in politics. Let alone in the government.
      Turns out the man does not have an agenda as well other than keeping power.

    • @zobbukit The things you list are unremarkable. I could say the same about Obama wearing mom jeans when throwing out the first pitch at the White Sox home opener, saying the US had 57 States, or calling his wife Mike.

      What is your opinion of Trump’s record on Immigration? That would be a more significant achievement. Wouldn’t you agree?

    Trump think he’s a president. That’s so sad. What a dork of a man. Came down an escalator. Down down down he falls fast.

  3. Sorry Gov. He has failed the American people when it comes to the virus. Miserably. This administration has put its narrow-minded personal views before the needs of the citizens. The war powers act should have been mobilized in February. Tell it to the folks in NY. Shameful.

      January. He should have been gearing up since January, getting tests, more PPE and ventilators, other countries were.

    • Yup, totally Trumps fault there are major spikes in the big cities that seen large protests, totally was Trump and republicans.

    • Carol, don’t know if you heard, but China is reporting a new highly infectious Swine Flu is on the way. The Republicans can’t handle one disease. Now a second pandemic. Stock up for a long winter.

  4. I wonder if it bothers Joe to interview such stupid people. The so-called p word didn’t do one thing right with this fatal disease. His reaction to the protests were just as bad. Nice economy? Could have been if he had done anything right.

    • @untseac “republican bills” hahahaha what a joke. They had both the House and the Senate for 10 years.and produced nothing no heath care plan or infrastructure. Face it the Republicans are now reactionary, no forward thinking. Are they say is NO. no solutions to anything.

    • @vsedai you have a point, they’re really slow, but universal health care is not a solution. Bad example. That’s not the kind of “forward thinking” you want. That’s what we have here in EU and it’s crap. You end up forced paying for a service that is very slow and you’re lucky if it actually works.

    Pitiful Issa Hutchinson, another lapdog.

  6. I’m sure the President of the Confederacy Donald J Trump will act now.

  7. Just at the start of Gov Asa ‘s words “I don’t know where you are coming from” & “you should be in these calls” – Another Republican Governor that sees Trump doing nothing wrong, saying nothing wrong

      @Benjamin Navarro well said Ben i agree 100%

    • Then why invoke the defense production act? Everything is fine in Arkansas apparently

    • Once you sell your soul to Satan, you also burn up the tiny bit of morality that you may have had. Therefore, you will never speak out against your idol, no matter what he does or says.
      Now it comes out that Russia was paying a bounty for American soldiers’ deaths.
      Since Trump works for Putin, of course he’s not going to do anything!
      Amd the administration claims he wasn’t told.
      come on! how stupid do you think we are? and if that’s true then 1) that means he is so incompetent and such a loose cannon that the staff decided to keep it from him and 2) who will be fired for not telling him? both explanations equals America is screwed!

      @Joyce Duncan your so right, and we know trump is married to a RUSSIAN

  8. There needs to be a term limit on Governors Arkansas needs new people and Tom Cotton needs to go as well.

  9. Shocking to hear a southern governor worried about their residents

  10. Ok, so this guy has been brainwashed, pushing the party line, he needs to visit his local hospital ICU, he is clueless

  11. Sorry, Governor. You’re on your own.
    Now, if you need a photo op for the President.
    Invite him to your state to pitch a batch of paper towels at people in the crowd.

      *I just Love when Trump is Pitching Paper TowLs & Whining & Dinning Putin, whiLe*
      *Putin Pays Bounty Money to TaLiban for KiLLings America Troops in BaTTLE!!!!*

    • Sarah McCoy 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

  12. Obviously it doesn’t take much to be Governor of Arkansas, considering Mike Huckabee once had the job.

    They STILL can’t say anything against the monstrous incompetence. Tom Cotton’s state, folks

  14. He doesnt have a bipartisan bone in his body..

  15. The first words out of his mouth were a lie.

  16. When the first words out of his mouth are “The president has been very effective…” Governor Hutchinson loses all credibility. Other governors were calling on the president to invoke the Defense Production Act for testing and personal protective supplies months ago!

  17. He doesn’t know where she is coming from. Trump stated he’s telling his people to slow down testing so that there are less cases. His people said he did not tell them that, it was a joke, over 125,000 people dead and he’s making jokes? But then next day Trump says he is not joking he wants to slow down testing. Is anyone else getting dizzy?

    • @hankakahEverything you just said is Democrats….proof or stfu

    • He is being sarcastic silly!… Oh no, he is just joking around!… Trump: “Let me tell you something… I don’t kid around”… -.-

    • Wrong, Biden said 120 million dead Americans…

    • @Walt Schmidt Trump :’I will show my taxes when they find those 33k emails.” “I am the Chosen One” “I fired Comey over that Russian thing” “Russia if you are listening” “maybe China can investigate the Bidens” “it was the perfect phone call”
      “if you want a test you can get a test” “it’s a Democratic hoax, we will soon be down to zero” “how about if we inject disinfectant”
      “I’ll have the best people” “they were the worst people” “I only like military that don’t get captured”
      15k lies and counting….Biden one misquoted number…Trump we had 10k, 20, 30k people.

    • @hankakah You are a moron. Go away…

  18. By starting his story with praising Trump his entire follow-up movie becomes unbelievable

  19. Trump just cares about lining his pockets.

  20. So he’s just going to put the chap stick on before showing Trump much love.
