  1. Daily Reminder: Trump called Covid-19 a democrat hoax that will miraculously disappear.

    • He sure did say that! All the people who died 😪

    • Positive Patriot | September 10, 2020 at 12:36 AM | Reply

      Apparently it has disappeared, the media sure don’t seem very worried about tens of thousands of protesters filling the streets for months on end

    • He wanted to try shooting up disinfectant and then pushed a drug the FDA has now banned for use in hospitals etc on COVID.
      The President is supposed to have a brain and not tweet 90 times before breakfast to show he can’t spell.

    • “And we’re prepared, and we’re doing a great job with it. And it will go away. Just stay calm. It will go away.” -Donald Trump 03-10-2020

    Republicans are trying to cover up their criminal activities of 2016 by endangering the lives of Americans to get votes for 2020

    • Thats the dumbest comment ive read so far

    • @Gabe Dudley yes Gabe, your comment was the dumbest!

    • @Gabe Dudley they knew in early January how deadly covid-19 200,000 dead Americans because of their inaction Republicans are killing American citizens with their inaction

    • @Gabe Dudley remember Republican senators were selling their stock while telling you it wasn’t as deadly as the flu and they knew better

      I also found out one of Trump’s biggest cover-ups of all. This was on CNN. Michael Cohen who worked with Trump said if he won the election for 2nd term, he’s gonna be a dictator for the United States of America. When he ‘jokingly’ says he wants 12 more years, he isn’t kidding. But I knew he was acting like Hitler before I found out. Vote him out! #LockHimUp!

  5. “I am a firm believer in the people. If given the truth, they can be depended upon to meet any national crisis. The great point is to bring them the real facts.”
    –Abraham Lincoln

      Unfortunately, we must amend Lincoln’s assertion to take into account the Internet. “the people” can no longer be counted on to mean “the American citizenry.” International influences, particularly Russia, on social media have dispelled this notion. I have no answer or solution for this. As the orange one would say (and in this one case, I’d agree) “it is what it is.” But anyone who holds the ideals of little-d democracy dear has to grapple with our current reality.

    • And this is your pouts lier and chief

    • The last farewell I personally think that websites should get rid of comment sections. Let the professional journalists do their jobs and if some foreign entity makes a youtube channel just shut it down when it gains enough traction to be noticed. But facebook should only allow advertising from national entities, we should already have internet identification and all websites, all of them, without internet ID should get rid of the comment section.

    Trump Tower should be siezed and converted into a memorial museum of adminstrative murder.

  7. He knew the virus was lethal in Feb. And he wants to send children (except his) to school. Vote BLUE in nov to dump trump and the GOP

  8. U.S. intelligence officials with the National Center for Medical Intelligence issued a report in late November warning that a virus was taking root in China. Analysts concluded it could be a “cataclysmic event,” and the report was shared with the White House, the Pentagon’s Joint Staff and the Defense Intelligence Agency. There were multiple briefings about the report throughout Dec, Jan, and Feb for the National Security Council, and the White House..

    On Dec. 31, China publicly confirmed that dozens of people in Wuhan were being treated for pneumonia-like symptoms. Three days later, on Jan. 3, Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar said he first learned of the spread of the virus in China at a White House briefing attended by CDC and Prevention director Robert Redfield. Trump fired Alex Azar shortly there after because he knew too much.

    Public-health experts have stated that Trump’s early efforts to downplay the threat of the virus robbed the US of valuable time needed to prepare for what is now a pandemic — potentially costing thousands of lives…

    Trump spent “two months of completely ignoring every bit of scientific advice,” Dr. Ashish Jha, the director of the Harvard Global Health Institute stated in mid-March. “We’ve wasted two months. And this is not a disease where you’re allowed to waste two months.”

    Jha criticized Trump for telling Americans that everything was “under control” when it was very clear to anybody paying attention that it was not under control.”

    “I don’t use these words lightly, and it’s incredibly painful for me to say it,” he said, adding: “The cost of all of this is that tens of thousands of Americans are going to die unnecessarily. It was wholly preventable, and not just preventable in hindsight — it was preventable in foresight. Everybody said this is how it was going to play out if they didn’t act.”

    Trump said that COVID-19  “came out of nowhere” and “blindsided the world.”  His comments left scientists, doctors, and national security experts in a state of disbelief. Experts had been warning about the next pandemic for years and criticized Trump’s decision in 2018 to dismantle a National Security Council directorate at the White House, that was created by President Obama, and was charged with preparing for WHEN, NOT if, another pandemic would hit the nation..

    Trump’s elimination of the office suggested, along with his proposed budget cuts for the CDC, that he did not see or comprehend the threat of pandemics. Trump has defended his record, arguing, “I’m a “businessperson.” I don’t like having thousands of people around when you don’t need them. When we need them, we can get them back very quickly.”

    But experts argue that’s not how pandemic preparedness works, and that’s definitely not how a virus works. “You build a fire department ahead of time,” Tom Inglesby, director of the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security stated. “You don’t wait for a fire.”

    “One year later I was mystified when the White House dissolved the office, leaving the country less prepared for pandemics like COVID-19,” Beth Cameron, the first director of the unit, wrote in an op-ed. She said the directorate was set up to be the “smoke alarm” and get ahead of emergencies and sound a warning at the earliest sign of fire — “all with the goal of avoiding a six-alarm fire.”

    tRump always treated this like a PR problem and not a public health crisis

  10. The last farewell | September 9, 2020 at 9:54 PM | Reply

    Trump: This
    Tape: That

    Summation of Trump’s tenure.

    • That’s why Trump said we can’t believe our eyes and ears.

    • Your all retarted… he saved our country from an economic crisis. Everything else aside. He ran this country better than any president from an economic standpoint.
      wtf do you think countries are?

  11. He’s stupid, he’s a coward and he panicked because he didn’t know what to do

    • I don’t know what’s worse: stupidity or callousness. To my great surprise, he understood the situation much better than I thought, judging by his public statements.

    • The pandemic is kind of like a golf putt – he choked.

    • @Helene Flamand, that’s what scares me the most. He knew exactly what it could do to people and yet he still couldn’t be straight with us. That’s so cold, calculating and cruel. He knew it was transmitted through the air and yet he made fun of people who wore masks. Honestly, it’s down right scary.

    • Trump wasn’t worried about “other people” panicking.

      HE was panicking, because he was faced with a situation HE could not understand and could not avoid.

      No wonder he asked people around him and himself to be tested regularly multiple times. He knew!

  12. The Trump virus on trumps watch had failed the USA

    We will fire him nov 3

    Biden 46

      And his followers will say this is a hoax. No one has even died. Remember Herman Cain an Republican, his own security had virus plus DJTJ girlfriend. Just sad. Sorry for your loss America. Praying 🙏 for u ❤️ please vote. Until America takes precautions, no one wants you coming to our Countries. Isolate and protect the World and we don’t need a wall.

    • @FWSC female white senior citizen Sadly, the majority of us, who despise Trump are holding on by a thread. He just keeps lying with no consequence other than more spite from us, while his cult doubles down. Imagine doing that in any other job…you’d be FIRED. We are so tired and miss using our passports.

    • @FWSC female white senior citizen his supporters are literally his guinea pigs..just use them for his own gain and throw them 6 foot below the earth. also “it is what it is”

    He couldn’t resist bragging or trying to impress Woodward.

  17. This is a good demonstration of how dangerous it can be when you combine stupidity and incompetence.

  18. Please stay focused
    Vote early

  19. His whole presidency is deliberate deceit.

    • The cult of Donald Trump a quintessential theorist of conspiracy with his more than
      85 million of followers on tweeter and the Qanon follower who are seeing him
      like the chosen one who will save the world no matter the bad thing he does
      could represent now a bigger treat for the whole world than the Corona

    • Ask Putin!!!!
