  1. Even when the doubters see this they will still be doubters. Sad!

  2. Trump is a ‘trump’ as in the U.K. usage of the word to mean a fart. And a ‘follow through’ fart at that.

  3. Imagine being a medical worker in NYC when 911 happened.
    Now imagine being a medical worker in any major hospital in the US, dealing with a 911 every week for 20 weeks straight.

      Too bad Trump was their president.

      Your image is off. Imagine having a 911 size event taking place in the US every 20± hours. And that’s just in the number of deaths. Then add to that those who survive, but are left with missing body parts (that had to be amputated due to COVID caused blood clots), brain damage (again, COVID caused blood clots), needing bilateral lung transplants, & a wide range of other complications related to COVID & which are, more likely than not, going to leave them with a lifelong disability that will impair them from ever being able to rejoin this nation’s work force.
      Imagine all that & you are beginning to approach the reality of the nightmare toll Trump’s choice to “downplay” the seriousness of this virus, his decision to completely politicize something as consequential as a newly emerged virus, is having on our lives & our futures.
      I wish that these people who are still crying over being told that they have to wear a mask were capable of seeing this virus through my eyes & understand it as I do. I wish they could pull their heads out of this me first, America first delusion they have subscribed to long enough to realize that much of this didn’t have to happen & that they can still save lives by agreeing to endure a tiny bit of discomfort & following the same guidelines that have proved so successful in countries that have effectively dropped their viral load down to the single digits.

    • @Cheetah Dolcini I hear ya, Cheetah. Appreciate what you do. Be safe, be well. 🙏

    • @Cheetah Dolcini 👏🏼👏🏼👍🏼💔 TY, BE SAFE! 🕊

    CA better hunker down at home and use ALL personal precautions Every Time they leave their homes. Completely STOP visiting at other homes. Limit socializing to phone or online contact only. Minimize as much as possible only trips to stores for essential items.
    Pull together on this, it’s not going to get any better and only get worse unless EVERYONE takes responsibility to stop the spread.
    All other States had better heed the precautions as well, or Nationwide we will be suffering thousands of needless deaths. You’re part of the solution or part of the problem…
    The end is in sight. Please don’t risk lives, yours and every contact you have. Just a few months to vaccination immunity. Don’t give up now on vigilance to preserving your health just to die so horribly, when we are so close to the end of this nightmare Pandemic!

  13. I explain the role of Vitamin D against COVID-19, have a look! 😀

  14. In another news: Trump keeps playing golf and keeps yelling I WON, I WON!!!

  15. meanwhile, trump is having great fun at his golf.court. american democracy huh?

    Abu al-Baqa ar-Rundi
    From “An Elegy to al-Andalus” Poem (1267)
    Everything declines after reaching perfection, therefore let no man be beguiled by the sweetness of a pleasant life.
    As you have observed, these are the decrees that are inconstant: he whom a single moment has made happy, has been harmed by many other moments.

    Why not have the Navy’s Mercy ship go up to LA? We did that at the start of this. Why not request it again? Then you won’t have people in a gift shop.

    • They did that for non Covid patients while the hospitals had created surge capacity. Who is going to staff the hospital ship at a totally separate site Genius. The entire country is experiencing a surge so you can’t “borrow” ICU doctors to leave the hospitals.

      @nsumlar if they did it before they can do it again. Thats why you have military doctors genius

    • @Anthony Scimeca So I assume you mean having a ship for non- Covid patients again? Interesting idea. What is your medical specialty? Or maybe you’re a hospital administrator. Even the Navy thought having a non Covid ship was a dangerous idea. And that was before we knew the degree of presymptomatic spread of SARS-Co-V2. Keeping an entire ship Covid free is nearly impossible. What are your thoughts?

  18. Trump secret agent man is spreading it to dem. states

  19. Might have to use giant warehouses

    If the surge continues OMG January will be worse! Sad
    Trump and federal government have failed the American people!
