    He’s a selfish orange man he isn’t going to wear a mask

    • and he’s right ! if you re sick,, stay at home or go to hospital (and I wish you a good luck) !

  2. It’s incredible how Trump is so unwilling to wear a mask and allowing the virus to spread like wildfire in the US.

    I’m surprised governors don’t make an effort to wearing masks a law, even temporarily. Make these idiots put on masks and stop killing people.

    • Lilac Lizard | July 1, 2020 at 5:02 PM | Reply

      There’s not enough masks for safe wearing though, so theyr’e probably worried about being sued for being responsible for the inevitable increase in cases from bad mask wearing

  6. I bet if David Duke asked him to wear his KKK headgear he wouldn’t hesitate

    • Tony Brady you must take a good care and your family to my friend I will vote for my wonderful president Donald Trump 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️👍👍👍👍👍👍☝️☝️☝️☝️☝️☝️

      I bet you David Duke wears his mask in public.

      @david tr you lost your house because of the last Republican president we had think about it because I did too and now I’m back on top as well but no thanks to Donald Trump

      @David Price Did you loose it because the housing bubble crisis?

    • Without a doubt.

    It puzzles me why so many Americans reject the science behind wearing a mask. It’s mind boggling.

    • Lilac Lizard | July 1, 2020 at 4:45 PM | Reply

      You don’t even know the science of it though do you!
      “Results:The rates of all infection outcomes were highest in the cloth mask arm, with the rate of influenza-like illness (ILI) statistically significantly higher in the cloth mask arm(relative risk (RR)=13.00, 95% CI 1.69 to 100.07)compared with the medical mask arm (Disposable medical/surgical masks)Cloth masks also had significantly higher rates of ILI compared with the control arm. . … Penetration of clothmasks by particles was almost 97% and medicalmasks 44%.

      Conclusions:This study is the first RCT of clothmasks, and the results caution against the use of clothmasks. This is an important finding to inform occupational health and safety. Moisture retention,reuse of cloth masks and poor filtration may result inincreased risk of infection. Further research is neededto inform the widespread use of cloth masks globally.However, as a precautionary measure, cloth masksshould not be recommended for HCWs, particularly inhigh-risk situations, and guidelines need to be updated.Trial registration number:Australian New Zealand Clinical Trials Registry:ACTRN12610000887077.”

      I suggest you look at the policies & virus case numbers & deaths in the countries behind that trial – the only peer reviewed, published trial of re-usable face masks on infection rates. Australia & New Zealand do NOT wear masks They accept the science

    • @Lilac Lizard The “facts” about mask wearing are soooooo all over the place!

      Melinda, Not too hard to figure out, just look at evangelicals and the whacky world they live in.

      We don’t like being told what to do. Even if it’s beneficial to our existence. I’m sure you’ve seen those nerds in their militia gear with their replica military single shot assault rifles. With their radios and sportsmans warehouse military replica camo gear. They didn’t like having their access to fast food and hair cut rights taken away from them.

    • @Big Ern Mahkracken Yeah. We know best.

    There must be something in the US system that allows for a completely incompetent president to be removed when the welfare of the population is in danger.

    • Chris Adkins | July 1, 2020 at 2:11 PM | Reply

      Yes, it’s called the 25th Amendment to the Constitution, and some of Trump’s cabinet members were talking about it among themselves just weeks into Trump’s presidency.

    • Lilac Lizard | July 1, 2020 at 4:47 PM | Reply

      @Chris Adkins and if the cabinet won’t do it, as long as the VP will, any part of the congress also has the option to do it

    President kills own people. This isn’t a debate or discussion. Put him in jail and move on.

      @Dennis Barnes Does the word naive even have a place in a language if we are “All naive”?

    • Ivan Walker | July 1, 2020 at 4:22 PM | Reply

      Sorry Dennis. I screwed up my response to you. I meant to write ….. Does the word puppet even have a place in a language if we are “All puppets”? I suppose it still works with both words. Cheers Bro!

    • @Dennis Barnes I never implied weed out the weak. If we want to maximize survival for a virus outbreak we should cooperate and share ideas. We have the technology but not the balls to speak up.

      Ivan Walker dude listen to me and do your research. All of what I said is truth. Look up the numbers please ! I am trying to open your eyes !!! God bless brother

      Ivan Walker watch the video I sent through that link in my previous comment

  10. Sadly, too many Americans didn’t heed the warnings and now we see the result. Reckless behavior has consequences … 😉

  11. “Our war-time president has surrendered” …. 🤣🤣 that was a goodern!!

    • @Grim Reaper Trump is going to be an one term loser.

    • samuel gainey | July 1, 2020 at 9:10 PM | Reply

      Trump has no ides what he’s doing. Failed business man and failed president

    • Big Ern Mahkracken | July 1, 2020 at 9:31 PM | Reply

      I don’t feel evil Mr reaper and I have zero happy feelings for trump. That is a nice way to say I despise that man. In a nice way

    • Grim Reaper – REVELATION 13:4 – “ And they worshipped the dragon (satan) because it gave authority to the wild beast (world governments) and they worshipped the wild beast with the words: Who is like the wild beast, and who can do battle with it?”

      REVELATION 14:9,10 – “If anyone worships the wild beast and it’s image and receives a mark on his forehead or his hand 10) he will also drink of the wine of the anger of God that is poured out undiluted into the cup of His wrath, and he will be tormented with fire and sulfur in the sight of the holy angels and in the sight of the Lamb (Jesus Christ).” ✌🏼

    And there are still Americans who will vote for him.🤷🏽‍♀️🤦🏽‍♀️🙅🏽‍♀️

  13. “It makes no sense for Trump to do this.” Unless he is working for Putin. Then it makes all the sense in the world.

    • Lilac Lizard | July 1, 2020 at 4:26 PM | Reply

      trump’s just lazy & incompetent, always has been. What doesn’t make sense is the failure of every one of your state governors except in Hawaii

    • considering all the incriminating material Russia has on Trump, both on a personal and political level, everything he does makes perfect sense.

      Duh. Right?

  14. Georgie sama | July 1, 2020 at 1:57 AM | Reply

    Trump calls himself a “Wartime President” well he surrendered like a true draft dodger hahahaha 😂

  15. Allan Gregory | July 1, 2020 at 2:04 AM | Reply

    You all know he is not fit for office, stop messing around and remove him! You need to turn your country around before November and that won’t happen until you put a leader in place

    • Lilac Lizard | July 1, 2020 at 4:48 PM | Reply

      they won’t though, so the alternative option is the state leaders just close the state borders & take control – the way Hawaii has successfully done

    The country is like a distressed ship in a high tide and we have clueless Captain who doesn’t know how to steer the boat to safety. SAD!!! But cruel reality.

    Not one person in this country who’s been paying attention cannot say Dr.Fauci didn’t warn us that this could happen.

    • @slactweak another thing is Trump repeatedly said the previous administration left them with nothing. Its true, but not to the extreme they put out. There were “guidelines” with the obama administration, but mainly yes or no questions and the department that would oversee the situation. Their weak guidelines is why crimson contagion exercise was such a failure.

    • samuel gainey | July 1, 2020 at 9:14 PM | Reply

      @science wins All these Trumpees do is blame deflect. They blame everyone else for Trump’s stupidity. What excuse will they come up with when Biden destroys him in November. A hoax, Biden cheated, the Dems cheated. Excuses excuses excuses. That’s all we’ve heard since 2016 are excuses.

    • samuel gainey | July 1, 2020 at 9:19 PM | Reply

      @pankaj sharma Pray for us non delusional Americans who won’t be voting for Donald Trump. And plan on Russia interfering in our election for Trump becuase that’s Putin’s greatest ally. Divider and cheat Donald Trump.

    • samuel gainey | July 1, 2020 at 9:21 PM | Reply

      @Lucky Fisher 72 Your life is a hype. Wake up before you splat from the fall of the cliff Trump led you to

    • @Peewee0413 trump is full of $h*t. Obama left him with a Pandemic Response team with ties to the governments of, and boots on the ground in, 49 countries, one of which just happens to be the country where this outbreak originated. Obama left trump with a scenario which paralleled this EXACT Pandemic scenario. He was UNINTERESTED in the scenario and DISBANDED the team because he didn’t want to pay them to continue. NOTHING that trump “says” about the former administration has any validity. We won’t even get IN to the fact that the guidelines were ignored in favor of not acknowledging the seriousness of this outbreak because, in HIS WORDS, “…I don’t want our numbers to go up…”

      Don’t talk to me about trump. Were it not for his WEAK @$$ed response and abject STUPIDITY in firing the people who could, and WOULD, have given us a head’s up BEFORE this thing got out of hand in China, there would be tens of thousands of people who would still be alive in this country and the rest of us could be FINALLY getting back to a semblance of normalcy.

    if Donald Trump gets voted in for another 4 years at the end of that for years this country is going to be completely different from what it is nowi t’ll be half the amount of population businesses will be closed down unable to open up again this will essentially be a third world country in another four years if Donald Trump gets re-elected.

    • Lilac Lizard | July 1, 2020 at 4:51 PM | Reply

      even without another 4 years, by November that will be the case. Australia has just announced a massive defence spending boost, to get long range missiles & basically everything needed to protect the country without any US support. They’re awake, even if the American people aren’t. Your closest ally is now considering it a foregone conclusion that you are going down

    • Val Syaranamual | July 1, 2020 at 8:50 PM | Reply

      @Lilac Lizard US Support!Admittedly helped in WW1(Lusitiania (US ship) Sunk.Hello America-WW2 Pearl Harbour attacked-welcome America. Korea (need allies and they helpwithout their countries being attacked) Vietnam ditto, Iraq (WMD supposedly-which America originally supplied) ditto, Afghanistan ditto and all were complete stuff ups.

    • If Donald trump won’t be a president you will be living in communist country . Is that what you want ?

  19. Once again…Trump in over his head as a leader.

  20. Ooh I bet that “wartime president surrendered” comment burned bunker boys biscuits!!! 😂🤣😂
