  1. He was bragging about shaking people’s hand in the hospital before. he’s not the sharpest knife in the tool box

    • @Hazel McCloy Trump smart? What a joke, he constantly spews misinformation about the virus and shakes hands too? SMH

      @Best Tongkat Ali…
      Remember all those suckers who were brainwashed by the devils legion to believe in evolution… The serpent legion of death came around at a later date and took their soul, all of them morphed into the demonic, instant eternal death.
      The corporate beast system and all of lucifers kids prove Christ is real instantly.
      Youre a tragic embarrassment.

    My tip is, don’t shake hands, especially with people who have Covid-19

    • @LB2007 He is being sarcastic because Boris told everyone it was fine to shake hands with people that had covid-19.

    • I lick my hands everyday to build up my immune system.

    • William Denny | April 6, 2020 at 3:39 PM | Reply

      It’s so contagious if you go near someone with the virus, whether you shake hands or not, you’ll get it. Stop pedalling irrelevant rubbish.

    • @Chris E. 😁😂

    • @William Denny Wow, you really missed the point there! He was telling people to ignore the scientific advice which was to stay 2m away from people. Also there is no “if” about it, it is that contagious, you’re not certain to get it from being that close, but there is a good chance you’ll get it. That is why we have all the current restrictions, brought in by him too late for the population and too late for him. However, he will get a ventilator whilst many of the population that need them will not.

    Well, it’s a good thing that Covid-19 is just a hoax created by The Left, or he’d actually be in trouble. /sarcasm

    • I know right 😜

      I can’t wait to tell that to right-wingers to their facse after they’ve lost friend, family and children.

      You don’t need to write sarcasm. Sort of kills it

    • Sarang Saranghae | April 6, 2020 at 3:12 AM | Reply

      @Joe Sanderson

      Kills what? Humor? It’s not exactly meant to be humorous. I do indeed need to indicate that my statement is supposed to be sarcastic because on the internet, there is a huge increase of what people are calling Poe’s Law when you write politically charged comments.

  5. I’m not saying he denied the virus, but he was reckless. There’s even footage of him shaking hands with dozens of people at a hospital where there were a lot of confirmed covid19 cases already. He also took a lot of time to implement the quarantine, whick ultimately will have cost thousands of lives across England.

      @Cut A Way Worse, he’s making sure his people make the most money possible during this time… Take a look a Kushner’s investments!

    • God help him
      Happy Palm Sunday
      And May God help us

    • I think most of his cabinet have not read into the subject matter. Viruses mutate very aggressively in hospitals during epidemics. That’s why we should have focussed every financial resource on PPE and quarantine facilities, rather than shut down the economy thereby depleting the public finances, and also putting everyone at risk of short lived but lethal strains of the virus escaping the hospitals.

    • @R2 D2 Don’t forget that testing is the only way to let people go out freely. We don’t need asymptomatic people to spread it out. Only tested people should go back to work. And, as soon as there are enough test kits, test everybody every week. And still wear PPE at all times for a long while, months perhaps.

    • His initial plan was herd immunity. It was Eugenics base and murderous. I think that is an intelligent man but he was not a rational man. Is it something Republicans and America share with him. Many are intelligent but they are not rational. If you don’t value objective data, the scientific method, and rationality then reality will not yield to your irrational, feeling formed, Wishful desires.

    Dropped the ball so hard, it bounced and nearly killed him.

  7. week one: it’s gonna be fine!
    week two: let’s all get the virus n build herd immunity 🙂
    week three: i’ve been shaking hands with all the corona patients!!!
    week four: hm i think i have the corona meself
    now: hospitalized
    the joke writes itself

    EDIT: HMMM… ICU? nvm

    The highest death rate in the world for the virus. If he’s in the hospital, it’s serious. This is what happens a when you don’t believe in science, but think your ego makes you immune to the virus. He’s like Trump.

    • @D There is a stupid way to achieve herd immunity and a smart way. The stupid way is to keep everything open. The smart way is to close everything, but take groups of healthy persons, inoculating them, isolating them for 4 weeks until they test negative.

  12. Diagnosed ten days ago, but just now he needs to be checked out. Yeah, he’s sicker than they’re letting on.

      @strtngfrsh The man is a perfect picture of a FOOL for shaking barehand with covid 19 patients in hospital!

      @SEA DOGS I’m sure anything positive President Trump says about “Boris the Boob” is simply out of political politeness.

    • Kay Mitchell | April 16, 2020 at 8:18 PM | Reply

      @stavros333 God help the Brits with “Boris the Boob” as their PM! Here’s hoping they don’t follow his example and that they demand he be thrown out of office with a Vote of NO Confidence after he encouraged Brits not to wear protective gear and to shake hands with sick patients in hospital!!

      @Rory REALLY? RESPECT?? For what….demonstrating to the world on World news that shaking barehandedly with Covid 19 patients in hospitals was a great idea????
      I hope he got sick enough to learn his lesson!
      Now he needs to APOLOGIZE to everyone he came in contact with, who got sick and those who might have died after following his example.
      Including his health care workers whose time could have been better spent caring for patients who didn’t infect themselves by IGNORING scientific ADVICE!
      He should be thrown out of office for such STUPIDITY! If he is not ousted then Brits deserve him!

      @Kitt Dunne You’re right. He was just reminding everyone that that comment is used by the Right Wing all the time. So congratulations for pointing it out further.

    • @Name And Address Supplied Always remember Poe’s Law. The right’s statements are so often hard to distinguish from self parody, that I suspect they want it that way.

      DarkKnightTrinity wrong. There’s 1 overblown news story. Most people young don’t get symptoms, because their immune system has some antibodies older fold don’t have. It may well be small amount get complications. We are all better off. Consider a stronger version next year…

      swanpride why so you can have a higher risk of learning problem, and shingles’s? There is a downfall to that. And I seen the downfall to “distancing” take place when my older brother got it. I wouldn’t change a thing.

    • @Drone sighting Smith Have you considered the possibility of you being senile?

    Boris wanted herd immunity…at least he’s leading the way in that…
    Edit: whoops…too many drinks lol

  18. Now his whole family become part of the excellent herd immunity plan!

  19. Boris: I shake hands with everyone….nothing happens

    Corona Virus: Hahahaha……

      One time I hugged a girl who was scared that she had TB. I was trying to be supportive. Thankfully she didn’t have TB. She was being tested. It was a scary moment, but I felt she needed the comfort. I wouldn’t judge people for having compassion.

      @Blue Line Pony Sorry, but Boris was trying to make a political statement with that stunt. Apparently, you are super easy to grift.

      @Deadbeat Donny well. I’m American and don’t pay attention. I have no idea what he said so ima just back off. Its none of my concern.

      Edit: Also, no. Anyone can pull that stunt. I was just criticizing how people were referring to it as a dumb move. I don’t even know the guy so politics aside. And it was a dumb move depending.

      3rd edit: Yeah. I’m dumb for saying anything at all.

      @Blue Line Pony You’re not dumb per se; just ignorant.
