      @Ro G stimulus pays all covid hospital bills. You lied again. I have no respect for you. You are a disgusting human being. Keep lying

    • @Stephen Slattery It is an easily proven fact. So please go ahead and name them.

    • @daft wod But also, over 90% of people at outdoor protests are wearing masks. And transmission goes from 70% if the healthy person is wearing a mask to 1.7% if BOTH people are wearing a mask.

    Those children still aren’t with the parents? Like they just shut off info out of there.
    Trump reminds me of Mussolini. Maybe he will go out the same way.

    You sure have to fight hard for transparency these days. The Trump administration has Soo much to hide.

      Even covid is racist? The virus has a conscious? Hilarious. The thing this story proves, is liberal democrats are filled with hate .24/7

    What is Trump gonna do about it? NOTHING! What he will do is stoke racial tensions making US vs THEM a campaign issue! Trump says we need to support Confederate statues. FORGET AMERICAN LIVES! INCLUDING OUR MILITARY PERSONNEL BEING TARGETED BY RUSSIANS, ITS A HOAX.

    America today is a living tragedy of systemic inequality and institutionalized racism. And it is epitomized by the deranged speeches of a raving lunatic- a man who cannot even read or write properly, a man who knows almost nothing about history, politics, philosophy, sociology, economics………….

  12. This is just one more reason why Trump truly wants to do as little as possible to mitigate or control the virus. Allowing to virus to continue unabated fulfills his white supremacy objective of killing off minority people.

  13. Is this the real reason for the Trump Pandemic Tour?????

  14. make it make sense | July 7, 2020 at 7:29 AM | Reply

    Also people were all out protesting spreading it around.

  15. chump knows this well, that is why he’s not bothered.

  16. Doug Schaufele | July 7, 2020 at 9:35 AM | Reply

    The WH knew these stats that’s why they’ve stopped fighting the virus and Trump wants to “whiten” the US!

  17. “A day of absence”…

  18. The inequality is caused by behaviour.
    Most inequality in the west is.

    Marching for lives during a pandemic was the most ironic action taken by human beings in modern history.
