    ‘It’s A Lot Easier To Wear A Mask Than A Ventilator’
    He ain’t lying though.

    • @Soren Ingram But its not happening though. They have previous data to compare things to. The deaths are not coming for the exact reason i already stated. Its crazy to me how people are so twisted they don’t even realize im stating good news.

      @No Name You have the right to believe what you will.
      Time will Tell..

      @No Name I didn’t hear this on the news. I’ve had both the chicken pox and shingles. Once upon a time, humans believed that once you had the pox, you were immune. Turns out that is not the case, you _can_ get it more than once, and since it doesn’t ‘leave’ you, can get shingles from it as well. COVID-19 is new. We have no idea what the end results from getting it will be. None whatsoever.

    • @No Name – ‘If I did get Covid, I would quarantine’.
      Um, yeah, except that by the time you know you have it, you may well have passed it on to plenty of other people.

    • @No Name not true. People have had covid, gotten cleared and got it again and was just as painful.

      Know – it-all people like you is the reason this thing keeps morphing. Just because a person has underlying conditions does not mean they deserve to die. The underlying condition is not what’s killing them because some have lived with that condition for years, it’s the virus that’s killing them.

      I pray that no one you know or care about gets infected because of your careless, selfish, arrogant attitude. Let us know when you graduate from “doctoring school” and maybe what you think can be heard. Let’s all pray for no sense – I mean no name.

  2. All because Mascara Mussolini is afraid to smear his foundation…smh

    The title is one thousand % correct I’ve been there I’ve been in a chair since I was 4 months old now in 40 please for people like me were your masks if you out an about.

  5. “Winston Churchill once famously observed that Americans will always do the right thing,
    only after they have tried everything else.”

    • Here is what the data says is “the right “thing” If you are young and healthy GET covid 19, become immune. Then you don’t need a mask and you don’t need to social distance. If you are young and healthy you have and almost non existent chance of dying from covid and a small chance you will actually get sick

      More than ‘COVID toes’: Numerous reports of skin rashes tied to COVID-19./ By Rachael Rettner – Senior Writer May 04, 2020

      It’s well known that some viral illnesses, such as chickenpox, measles and hand, foot, and mouth disease, can cause rashes. But virus-related rashes are more typically seen in children, Shinkai said. “That’s why it’s much more striking” to see numerous reports of rashes in adult patients with COVID-19, she said.

      The rashes can take many forms — some appear as tiny red spots, while others appear as larger flat or raised lesions. Some have a hive-like appearance, while others look like frostbitten toes.

      Patients with COVID-19 who developed acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) could have a greater risk of long-term health issues.

      Additionally, people requiring intensive care are at increased risk for mental health issues like post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), anxiety, and depression.

      Impaired lung function from SARS-CoV-2 infection can negatively affect other organs like the heart, kidneys, and brain, with significant health impacts that may last after getting over the infection.

    And people in Oklahoma, Texas, etc. are STILL stupid! None of them wear a mask! I mean, WTF??!

    funny how the KKK dont have problems wearing masks when they’re burning crosses!

  8. Trump made the mask a political statement.

    • @Eli Dicken do you want me to show you a video of aoc and a bunch of others doing the same or do you care? do you even know the who and cdc guidelines on when they recomend to where one. It’s when you’re indoors in a public building or in a packed area. Not all the time.

    • @buddy guy troll. Stop impersonating a great musician. Your talking points and whataboutism are transparent. Dismissed.

    • @buddy guy why would you wear a mask for a democratic hoax? 😆

    • Constituent A | June 29, 2020 at 9:02 PM | Reply

      I met him half way on the ‘masks as political statement’ thing. I write things like ‘trump sucks’ on my paper masks with black Sharpie before I go out.

    • @Doug Lowe why do so many dismiss my opinions by referencing my name being some old jazz players? What are you a boomer? Anyway it wasn’t whataboutism it was her own standards used against what I assumed to be her Idol

  9. Just think, how many lives could have been saved if t’rump cared most about people than getting make-up smudges on his mask and getting laughed at. Oh well.🤷 Great pick there, republicans! 😅😂

    • It goes much deeper. To the religious right, not wearing a mask is some kind of proof of faith that Jesus will keep them safe.

      To the insurance companies, the spread of Covid is a bonanza.

      To the Koch brothers and fellow billionaire libertarians, the death of seniors goes a long way towards their goal of cutting Social Security.

      To racists and the KKK the disproportionate deaths of people of color is a plus.

      And don’t forget that shocks like this enable the worst of criminals to make out like bandits. While the average citizen got $1200, over $3 trillion was transferred to banks and corporations. Naomi Klein calls this “The Shock Doctrine” and the result has been phenomenal sums of wealth transferred to the top 1% over the course of recent decades. Lately, it’s been a bonanza for them.

      So you can joke about Trump’s alleged make-up, but that level of analysis works as a diversion… shades of the comic who gets the crowd’s attention while the professional thieves pick as many pockets as possible.

      @Sioux Rose you’re not lying, its absolutely brutal when you see the grand scope of mechanizations. It’s always been a shell game.

    The virus doesn’t care if you vote orange. Nice one, Doc.

    Donald Trump is so divisive that we can’t even come together for the sake of saving our own lives.

    Mr .President..
    It’s easier to put on a mask than your make up.

    Get DT out. Save yourselves. Your making Canada scared. We are doing a bit better, but not by much.

  14. *Not for POTUS it isn’t. The only time Trump got near to wearing a Face Mask during the 5 months of COVID-19 Pandemic was at a Mask Factory . . and Trump’s refusal to wear a Mask THERE resulted in contaminated production-line Face Masks. It is Covid-idiocy.*

  15. If you don’t wear a mask you automatically forgo medical attention.

  16. I’m immuno-compromised and I’m terrified someone will take my mask off of me. I WILL press charges for assault if that happens.

  17. Texas: We can’t mandate everyone to wear masks in public, we have our rights!

    Random Florida woman: Mandatory mask wearing is following “Devil’s law”!
    COVID19: 👌 ♥️

    The state of Affairs in America is the result of electing Donald Trump. Just learn the lessons from here on out.
