    Let’s see how he does when he needs a ventilator.

    sorry. Absolutely no sympathy for this nasty man.
    Exactly the same as trump showed John Lewis…

  3. 37% of the population prefer to live and die in ignorant bliss.

    • No, there’s more – they want to take as many ppl as they can with them. Don’t forget that. That’s what all this refusal to wear masks is about. They are willing to suffer minor casualties as long as “the others” get the major brunt. They’ve always been this way. Ppl need to stop underestimating them.

  4. *Mommy & Daddy Issues:* Covid-19 mask refusal, illustrates how Republicans hate their Parents and Grandparents.

    • Stephen Harris wow what a whopper you have there. I mean your linked source says this about their study:

      “Most studies were underpowered because of limited sample size, and some studies also reported suboptimal adherence in the face mask group.”

      @Stephen Harris He is a genius compared to you, dimwit. From here on in, I will remove your dangerous content, and report it. Are you trying to get people killed???

      Mr. Smitty did us all a service by taking the time to carefully explain the science, so although you’re purposely ignorant, others will benefit. Ignorance kills!! Just ask Trump.

      Andy Smitty It doesn’t take the left very long to fall apart

      Andy Smitty We will see how the Democratic national convention does next month with no police

      Deborah Hennessey So all of a sudden the CDC is incompetent interesting

  5. To demonstrate their conviction, Trump supporters should tattoo themselves with *”Do Not Resuscitate”.*

    I hope he gets the deadly kind. These idiots need to know this is real, he didn’t care why should we care. He probably infected someone with it.

  7. Could not have happened to bigger loud mouth. And now he’s missed out on his ride back home. Bummer dude.

      @Andy Smitty Thank you for taking the time, both to research facts, and to lay them out. It saves me for another post. I really enjoy reading your comments, because it verifies that my years of consistent and deep research are working. Let’s just hope that a proper election is held. Our nerves can’t take another moment. 🤔

      @David Hale Are you crushing on Andy? I don’t think he’s interested.

    • Deborah Hennessey | July 29, 2020 at 7:12 PM | Reply

      @David Hale No. Only defend Covid parties, anti-masking, and killing strangers and friends along the way.

      @David Hale Facts don’t care about your feelings. Facts are facts.

    This is what you get when you chase little blue men around all day.

    • This is what you get when you listen to the creator of TRUMP UNIVERSITY

    • Republican senators, all except Romney, failed in the following:

      call a witness
      seek the truth
      remove Trump out of office
      uphold the oath they took to defend the constitution

      Vote blue America! Republicans are bought and paid for by Donald Trump and paid for with American taxpayer dollars.

    • Or orange men

  9. Lia Thompson | July 29, 2020 at 2:26 PM | Reply

    So dumb it’s literally life threatening.

    • Gomhert is now claiming he was infected because he wore a mask. The ignorance just keeps coming from the tea baggerz still in the House.

      ……everybody will eventually test covid-19 positive, stupid.Fauci is on record accepting money to run the Wuhan Lab. He was the Director for 3 years. Obama OKd the 3.7 million dollars to fund the Chinese Corona virus. Patent# us10130701b2 Google it stupid! …….if it is misinformation why would they be so worried about it. I think we should audit Fauci the Fraud” and find out about the money Bill Gates gave him to run the Wuhan Lab and how many vaccine stocks Fauci and Gates own?? and why does Dr Birx(scarf lady) her daughter work for Bill Gates De-Population Committee??? ……facts are facts. facts is proof. I am the King of Facts. I already know who the veep is, who won the election on nov 3rd, and how the left and the UN is going to react to it. Facts are Facts.

    Congressman Who Refused To Wear A Mask Tests Positive For COVID-TRUMP!

  12. I SAW THIS VILE MAN PRAISING BARR FOR ATTACKING INNOCENT PROTESTERS AND NOW I THINK “KARMA” HEARD HIM AS WELL…GREAT!!

    • Vile indeed. 97 days till election! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4lUO9s9t4Vw

    • I wonder if he shook hands with Barr yesterday. We already know they spoke to one another without wearing masks…
      As a nurse, I would never wish harm, illness, suffering, loss, or death, on ANYONE! But as a human, let’s just say I’m not all broken up over him getting COVID-19, but I do feel sorry for the people he infected, due to his inconsiderate and selfish actions. 🤷🏼‍♀️ Wear a freakin’ mask, y’all! PLEASE! You do not want this virus…trust me.

    • It couldn’t have happen to a more deserving person.

    • @Suzy Q I wish it on People that are Crooked in this Administration of Enablers! Don’t care what People think of me. And I’m not Jealous that Someone has a Better Ratings then I have!🤯😨😎💪🇺🇸

    • Amanda Brooks | July 29, 2020 at 4:54 PM | Reply

      Hope he, Barr and Trump had a three-way yesterday.

  13. My only regret is that I only have ONE “Like” to give. . . Gomhert is reprehensible.

  14. Granny Gooch | July 29, 2020 at 2:32 PM | Reply

    How many did he infected . Sad truth how many will die and or survive. Such a selfish act.

    • Garry Graves | July 29, 2020 at 4:11 PM | Reply

      Too bad that he didn’t get to board airforce one !

    • No one has to die, you haven’t heard from dr. Stella Immanuel?

    • As Nelson Muntz “HAW HAW”..Gohmert is mos def a Pyle.

    • Jesus saw that | July 29, 2020 at 4:47 PM | Reply

      @Wake up Sheep Stop spreading harmful misinformation you lunatic

    • Jesus truth,light,way Jesus said I am the light I’ll never understand the notion that science somehow undermines religion. We can see the light from the edge of the universe but we don’t know more than that – God is the point past where we can’t conceive anymore. Yes? Doesn’t mean people who believe in science don’t believe in God. However, science is real. There are actual ways we can fight this. The pills you refer to can’t be clearly shown to work on Covid patients. That one lady’s insistence that she used them is anecdotal. That’s not the same as “they definitely work”. No actual study has been able to show effectiveness. I’m afraid you can’t take one person’s anecdotal insistence as proof of anything. Just, if you’re thinking of taking hydroxychloroquin please consult a doctor and be careful. Do what you like, just be careful. That’s all.

  15. I hate to say this, but this makes me happy.
    Karma at its finest.

  16. How is that “democratic hoax” working out? It’s what you get..

    • Albert Belle | July 29, 2020 at 3:09 PM | Reply

      Yeah. What is with them telling us thy have it? Don’t bother us with the virus hoax. Don’t go to doctors or hospitals or anything. Sacrifice yourselves for the economy and for your grand kids.

    • BigBoogookie | July 29, 2020 at 3:16 PM | Reply

      @Albert Belle “There are more important things than living,” they said! They should get on with their beliefs.

    • DEMON RAT HOAX = Communism!!!!

      There’s logic in there somewhere, you just have to find it !

      @Doomhound Communism? with all the right winger waving the Communism flag right.

    If he doesn’t like mask,he loves virus.

    • I’ve heard people saying, “If you don’t like the mask, you’re gonna hate the ventilator!”, and as a nurse, I couldn’t agree more! I wouldn’t typically call someone I don’t know, selfish or inconsiderate, but in this case I’ll make an exception. Not wearing a mask, unless there’s some medical condition preventing it, is a selfish move. 🤷🏼‍♀️
      My mask protects you; yours protects me.

      @Walter White I just love removing every comment in every thread for spam, misinformation, and harassment. Keep it up troll. It’s my good deed for the day!!!

    • Deborah Hennessey | July 29, 2020 at 6:45 PM | Reply

      @Strange Wayfaring Stranger 😂😂😂😂 I shouldn’t laugh, because it’s such a tragedy, but once in awhile it helps. Good one!!!

  19. The most stupid mistake in the history of the country is Trump’s 45th appointment as President of America.

  20. It is so satisfying when science prevails over stupidity
