  1. We should trash the republican party. America has out grown their mentality ….

    • Jorge of Albion Couldn’t have said it better myself.

    • trump isn’t a Republican. He is one lonely, miserable child looking for attention & wants to be the important king. I respect real republicans, trumtard is all for himself. No one respects him!

    • @Trixie P For whatever reason liberals love supporting lifelong corrupt politicians… Democrats support abortion BLM LGBTQ and defunding the police Trixie 😳 🌊

    • I would never ask people to trash, burn down, loot, or harass, but there is a list of democrats who have. I don’t understand why they have not been arrested for crimes, inciting violence.

      @David Primeau Your Lord Emperor incited the right wing domestic terrorists to try to kidnap and kill at least 2 governors and there have been 2 attempts so far on Biden’s life. The divider in chief is to blame for the hatered, division, discord and inability of families and friends to even have civil conversations anymore. We are near civil war due to the orange clown that has made us a worldwide laughingstock. He needs to be held accountable for destroying America.

  2. His gross ineptitude and carelessness is the single cause of this extended pandemic. It’s on him. Only him.

  3. I think fruit flies live a bit longer …

  4. Donald Trump’s rallies directly caused many of the outbreaks we are having.

      It’s interesting with all this evidence from emails, texts and now testimony from an actual business partner, they’re trying to determine if there was any wrongdoing. But if you’re the President, all you have to do is ask about it in a phone call, to get impeached.

      @Ash Gray He’s under audit. No one would do that.

    • I wonder if it’s possible for a local government such as New York or California to arrest Donald Trump for murder when he travels there for rallies. I know it’s unprecedented but a president is not above the laws.

      @JuICyBLiiiiiiinGeR You’re a disgusting human being. You still believe cnn so you can’t be very bright. The biggest death numbers are in democrat run cities and states…not the red states.

    • Where’s your proof? Facts?

  5. And that fruit fly landed on Mike Pence.

    Imagine your life without Trump anywhere to be seen or heard. _Now, let’s ALL VOTE to make that dream happen!_

  7. “It’s fifteen cases going down to zero soon.” What an IDIOT. Vote Blue to save your own lives!

  8. Yesterday the US recorded its highest daily number of new cases.
    Rounding the corner Donald?

  9. When you are oblivious to the obvious the facts don’t matter. Masks save lives. Wear one please 😷👍

  11. He doesn’t take responsibility, only undeserved credit.

    • Can’t take credit without first taking responsibility.

    • I have NEVER BEEN FOOLED when I judged a politician on the RESULTS of their actions. But I’m almost always been MADE A FOOL OF when I trusted a politician on what they promised they would do. . . . . . . . Your President Trump is the first president ever to fulfill his campaign promises despite the Democrats/MSM lying, cheating, swindling, ObamaGate spying and flat-out absolute propaganda.

      @unlisted junk wow, is that what Q told you to believe?🤔

  12. We are rounding the corner – he must be in the center of a circle…continous cornerssss 🤦‍♀️

  13. Lets all hope that by ’rounding the corner, rounding the turn’ he means that he’s going down the drain.

  14. At a time when America most needed a Franklin Roosevelt, GOP gave us a Hoover that really sucks!

    • Marshall Bowen | October 23, 2020 at 10:12 PM | Reply

      wily wascal Please do not compare Trump to Hoover. Hoover was an honourable man who had saved many after WWI but was in over his head as president. There is no Trump comparator. Perhaps, it could read that “ the GOP gave us the sludge at the bottom of a septic tank” but even that has some value as fertilizer: Trump has none.

      Hoover sucks 😀😀😀

    • ​@Marshall Bowen ~ The comparison is not intended to be one of character, but of blind adherence to dubious, bankrupt, or failed ideology, leading to catastrophic failure highly damaging to America and lethal to Americans. The following should aid in understanding why our comparison is not only valid, but an astute, appropriate one:

      _Hoover saw the presidency as a vehicle for improving the conditions of all Americans by encouraging public-private cooperation—what he termed “volunteerism”. He tended to oppose governmental coercion or intervention, as he thought they infringed on American ideals of individualism and self-reliance._ ~Wikipedia

      _Hoover’s reputation as a humanitarian—earned during and after World War I as he rescued millions of Europeans from starvation—faded from public consciousness when his administration proved unable to alleviate widespread joblessness, homelessness, and hunger in his own country during the early years of the Great Depression._ ~Brittanica

      Why Trump Ended the Task Force and Put a Kook in Charge of the Coronavirus

      Jonathan Chait — October 20, 2020

      _The implosion of the last Republican administration was in large part the story of conservative ideology defeating empiricism. George W. Bush dismissed intelligence and foreign-policy professionals who questioned the Iraq weapons claims and pressed the need to plan for an occupation as small-minded bureaucrats disloyal to his grand vision._

      Historian explains why Donald Trump’s COVID-19 response is remarkably similar to Herbert Hoover’s failed crisis leadership
      April 14, 2020 — History News Network
      Robert Rupp is a professor of history and political science at West Virginia Wesleyan College.

      On April 9, the New York Times reported more than 6 million new unemployment claims for the previous week, and nearly 17 million over the previous three weeks. As this massive unemployment has followed the coronavirus crisis, a comparison between Presidents Donald Trump and Herbert Hoover becomes more apt than ever. For both presidents failed to project candor or show leadership during an unprecedented national crisis.

      President Hoover during his first year in office confronted an economic collapse. Unemployment soared to a record 25% at time when most Americans did not have access to unemployment benefits let alone health care. But as the nation sank into the Great Depression of the 1930s, Hoover radiated confidence. He was fond of saying that prosperity was just around the corner.
      Hoover allegedly explained his optimistic proclamations by saying that “A doctor does not tell his patient how sick he is.” His lack of openness prompted a pushback as opponents during his administration labelled the slums built outside major cities as “Hoovervilles,” and encouraged people to call an empty pocket turned inside out as a “Hoover Flag.”

      Like Hoover, Trump leans toward overconfidence rather than openness. According to the Washington Post, he had sought to downplay the coronavirus threat 33 times in February and March. At the start of the pandemic Trump appeared to dismiss the threat by highlighting low numbers (only 5 deaths and 15 cases). In the following months he repeatedly ignored Winston Churchill’s observation that “ There is no worse mistake in public leadership than to hold out false hope soon to be swept away.” On April 3, President Trump did warn Americans that this week “there’s going to be a lot of death.” But then he talked about “the light at the end of the tunnel.”

      Another characteristic shared by the two presidents is an avoidance of strong presidential action; each proved reluctant to use the full power of the federal government.

      Any discussion of presidential leadership must first recognize that Hoover was not a laissez-faire bystander as the depression worsened.

      _However, Hoover’s initiatives were constrained by his conservative political philosophy. He had strong ideological resistance to excessive federal intervention—a profound belief that such action would undermine initiative and responsibility. He expressed his strong views in his 1922 book American Individualism, which highlighted the danger of collectivism and a reliance too much on the federal government. In this regard he believed that assistance should be handled on a local, voluntary basis rather than on the federal level._

      The American public would have to wait until President Franklin Roosevelt initiation of the New Deal and mobilization efforts during the World War II to witness dramatic model of full government intervention.
      Like his overconfident pronouncements, Hoover’s principled resistance to extensive federal intervention did not serve him well as president and may have undermined his political future. Hoover was elected with 444 electoral votes winning all but 8 states in 1928. Four years later he received 59 electoral votes and carried just 6 states. Today no politician mentions him, except to compare their political opponent to him.

      If history shows Hoover followed the wrong path for principled reasons, what will it say about Donald Trump, who has several tools that were not available to Hoover? Unlike Hoover, Trump could use such tools as War Production act and Defense Production act that date to World War II and the Korean War era, plus he has the precedent of the New Deal. All of these things happened after Hoover was president, and although available to Trump, he nonetheless is choosing not to use them as part of his action plan.

    • wily wascal…. I disagree. Trump is in a league of his own. America has never seen a worse president than Trump.

  15. Trump’s tweet attacking Obama a few years ago: “Leadership: Whatever happens, you’re responsible. If it doesn’t happen, you’re responsible.” But now that the tough Twitler is indeed responsible for the botched response…he blames China.

    America has failed bigly by electing this sociopathic narcissistic pathological liar.

    “I take FULL responsibility… it’s not my fault it came from China”🙄

    He just doesn’t get it! America, get this man out!

  17. We are “rounding the turn.” We keep rounding the turn. We are just going in circles in a downward spiral.

  19. Speaking as a retail worker; someone needs to explain to people what “wearing a mask” means. It doesn’t mean wearing it under your nose. It doesn’t mean wearing it halfway down your face so that it’s barely covering your mouth. These people may as well not be wearing one. I am terrified daily when these people stand only a couple of feet away from me all day long.

      I am sorry there are so many selfish people who just don’t care about others. You deserve better.

    • I am sorry you are dealing with this. People are crappy. Your mask protects them, them not wearing is blatant. Not protecting you.

    • I went to Lowe’s yesterday and had to point out to the cashier who was sagging her mask under her nose that when they test for coronavirus they test up in the nose, that’s because that’s where it’s most concentrated upon infection. After that she gave me attitude. You’re right, she shouldn’t even be wearing one at all. I heard a great saying about people who wear their masks under their nose. It’s like wearing underwear with your junk hanging out of the top 😄.

    • @tuffstuff So true! I can’t get rid of the image when I see the nose peak over. Lolol!

    • Yeah. It’s crazy their examples are on tv, replacing common sense.
      I can’t stop being mad and scared that my life is in some stupid person’s hands.
      Besides the Occupant’s.

  20. Mr President “your fired!”
