  1. A narcissistic sociopath like Trump will sacrifice another 100k American lives if he has to in order to get reelected. He will simply say that they died for a good cause.

    • Nah, he will say they were “all Democrats with one foot in the grave already. No big loss.”

    • Would he even care if his own family were part of the next 100,000 dead from this horrible virus.

    • He has already said his rebuttal. “It could have been 2-3 million, but for his excellent leadership”. He will repeat the lie until his base repeat it too.

    • nah he’ll blame Obama for their deaths.

  2. I can’t wait for Alabama’s officials to proclaim, “If only we could’ve known!!”

    • @13Gladius 2 Why should I be afraid of catching Covid-19? I don’t live in Brazil, excuse me, I meant America.

    • @13Gladius 2 Since you live in Good Ol’ Alabamie I guess you could be right. Since a hospital there is probably someone’s bathroom and the doctor also pulls teeth for a dollar a yank.
      Hey, I personally don’t care how you act. In fact I want you to go on just the way you are. I’m happy in the knowledge there will be less of you and your tribe tomorrow.

    • @Inde nmc well you don’t needn’t worry about who is or not social distancing. You do it for them by hiding under your bed in a bubble suit crying “Call me when it’s over”

    • @i minabrons Less of me? HaHaHa. I already have immunity. Where’s yours?

    • @i minabrons Dr Berg does an excellent analysis of the virus in this latest 6 min vid.

      Try n make use of his brain to enlighten yours

  3. I live in Alabama.
    I saw this coming with all the Trump supporters here.
    I’m not going out in public till November 3rd…

      John, I have an honest question for you: Why do people assume that anyone out and about, not taking this seriously, are all Trump supporters? What about those 12,000 free rent protesters in NYC? What about all the people flooding California’s and Florida’s beaches? What about big cities, that are overwhelmingly liberal, with huge swaths of people out? They’re all Trump supporters, or you’re jut hateful?

      Trump haters prove you don’t need a brain to vote Democrat. Just push the “D” lever and everything will be done for them, including the thinking

    • @ApplachiaMarv I can tell you why. It’s called “Cult of Personality”. And literally billions of people are infected with it.

    There was just a report for Memorial Day in Alabama. No one was wearing masks in public and they all didn’t think they had to.

    • Brian James lmao you’re completely lost

    • They don’t. This is a mild flu with multiple cures. The tests are 50% wrong (CDC). This lockdown is political and most deaths are natural with this flu thrown in for fear and control.

    • Q WWG1WGA why didnt the Great Awakening happen in 2017, tho?


    • @Mr. Mr. probably so, but I’m not sick. Unless you’re implying there are no hotspots in the country, that the US has done well compared to other countries, or that many other countries are not proven examples of how to behave in a pandemic, then I only see excuses and justification to avoid doing what our arrogance has prevented us to properly prepare for. The warnings of inevitable pandemic have been around for many years. Are you implying proper preparations would have been more costly than this?????

    Here comes those ” Hot spots ” Trump talked about, GL putting out these fires.

    • R. Renovatus that was weeeeaaakkk try, Comrade Beta.

      Eli Dicken – the only comrade in all these threads is you Eli …. one thing I’ve seen in the media is what you call someone – nazi, racists, xenophobia, comrade is just you deflecting who you really are on others … the Russian thing was a hoax, they have proven that, now under oath, all the FBI leadership said “it didn’t exist” and still you stupidly persist …. you need help, you need to read and socialize more with people from different perspectives because you have proven yourself to be an unintelligent bigot in nearly everyone of your posts … your smiley face with the flag with the middle finger pretty much sums you up- phoney patriot, thinking you’re smart while sheepishly flipping everyone off because you lack the intelligence to have a real exchange of ideas. Good luck getting well

      @R. Renovatus Prove it

    • @R. Renovatus even if that were true..they still wouldn’t be half as fake or facetious as Roger aisles and 99% of the liars over at faux..if you don’t know what facetious means..look it up

  6. Richard Alexander | May 28, 2020 at 2:35 AM | Reply

    15 cases, going to zero. In April it goes away, like a miracle. We have it totally under control…

  7. There should be more faith. Given that Trump, God and the Evangelicals are on to this and have it all under control, why worry?

  8. Rioters Are So Angry About Police Killing That They . . . Stole Baby Clothes and Air Fryers From Nearby Target

    • Lisa Edwards | May 28, 2020 at 3:36 AM | Reply

      they’re just degenerates using a murder to excuse their criminal behavior. they think it suddenly becomes legal and acceptable to loot under these circumstances. they’re behavior looks especially bad when there was such quick response and action taken with the case immediately going to FBI investigation and the cops involved getting booted without that paid vacation bullcrap that usually happens. just makes the community look bad when they “protest” (riot and loot)

      Upward Look TV May 19 2020 youtube ( Someone needs to let us use super computers for politicians what do you think? And hire people in public service who aren’t idiots )

    • The Trump administration just cracked down on Chinese again so Democrats need to make sure people are looking at them. Whenever Republicans have good news, Dems run “BLACK MAN VICTIM OF RACISM” headlines for like a week. In reality, Dems have no platform to run on that is as relevant as Trump’s focus on China.🤷

  9. Let’s face it, the US has stuffed up. No, no, forget that. Trump has completely stuffed up.

  10. This stupid lady lol

  11. Stay out of the moist air zone !!(seriously that expression alone keeps me distant🤢🤧🤮)

    • Cheaper by the thousand | May 28, 2020 at 6:11 AM | Reply

      moist air….kinda like the inside of a mask.

    • Kim Stephen | May 28, 2020 at 9:55 AM | Reply

      @Cheaper by the thousand Yeah but that is YOUR moist air. The virus spread in moist droplets. Stay away from moist air coming from someone else…

    • Cheaper by the thousand | May 28, 2020 at 10:05 AM | Reply

      @Kim Stephen bacteria and viruses are attracted to moist environments. By creating one you’re basically inviting it in. Especially that a cloth mask wont stop a virus lol

    • @Cheaper by the thousand ….hence social distancing as well. If you pee on yourself you won’t get it on anyone else as long as you have your pants on….lol

    • @Cheaper by the thousand completely false..and if your mask is getting wet..its either the wrong are wearing it wrong..or you are lying..ive worn masks for 20+ years as a Nurse and 10 more as a CNA..never had a wet mask in all those years..

  12. We know of coronavirus cryo-resistance… don’t care Donnie working with Vlad knows the virus is in the meat… sic

    What a coincidence that when states start opening up again
    COVID case suddenly rise. It’s a mystery as to why this happened 😔

    • robert gilleland | May 28, 2020 at 5:18 PM | Reply

      @incog cheeto You believe whatever it is you believe and I’ll believe whatever it is I believe. 100,000 deaths in the USA IS a big deal as far as I and many others are concerned and that’s not counting the 100s of thousands dead and dying elsewhere in the world.
      You claim some media “makes it out to be a big deal” and I claim some media and readers comments make out it’s a nothing burger, which it certainly isn’t.
      By my count with 3+ million hospitalized around the globe and it is far from being controlled yet, so anyone underselling its dangers, as you and Trump are doing, need to be put straight.

    • incog cheeto | May 28, 2020 at 5:25 PM | Reply

      @robert gilleland hospitalized….are they dead? Are those 3,000,000 dead? A percentage might…but not all 3 million. And 100k out of 7.7 BILLION PEOPLE in the world is a small percentage. And you do realise that people die right? None of us get out of this alive. I’m sorry if you lost someone but were you this adamant about the seasonal flu, what about heart disease?

    • robert gilleland | May 28, 2020 at 5:42 PM | Reply

      @incog cheeto It’s funny that you accused me earlier of “putting words” in your mouth” yet are doing the same here. Did I say there was 3 Million dead?, use what’s left of your brain to read my words.
      And I suggest you stop altering the facts. 100K IS THE TOTAL DEAD IN THE USA, THE WORLD’S DEAD IS OVER 1 MILLION AND STILL COUNTING..
      And that is the problem, it is not yet June and the figures relate to the count since February which is just 4 months. Let’s see what they are in a year’s time or better still when the pandemic is under full control in every nation on earth. Then and only then will I listen to your argument. Cheers.

      @robert gilleland you’re acting like it’s a death sentence.

    • @fishbone3333 …. Cambodia and Vietnam combined = ZERO deaths…… They are right next to the so-called epicenter and have no reason to lie. They also don’t have dozens of sensationalized media scaring the public with ridiculous, scare-tactic reporting filled with implausible statistics….. Again, ZERO deaths!

  15. only they could remove the cops from the streets so I can run around nude in the city, this is outrages.

    Florida: Hold my Mickey ears!

    • Yeah..Florida..where they are experiencing an increase of children with inflammatory symptoms..also..where desantos is refusing testing to keep the numbers down..per trumps order/request/demand? Whatever..its murder to allow this

    • @CherBear all the southeastern states are increasing, funny how there all have Republican governors

    That’s because ppl dont care apparently smh

  18. I thought a stable genius told me that all this goes away with the warmer weather, and then waved his hands.

    They know that and they still want to reopen only cuz the rich are loosing money.

  20. Seriously, Is any one of you surprised?
    Everyone who is, read a book!

    • No America is doing the worse job of controlling the COVID-19 virus, that is not a reflection on the American people who know what’s going on, it’s Trump’s base and the protestors who are the problem, Are the people worried about what’s going on?

    • George Snody | May 28, 2020 at 4:12 PM | Reply

      @Nero no I guess not

    • The ignorant individual is doing a horrible job! Ignoring all the warnings and suggestions posted everywhere. I guess all your problems are caused by others (Gov’t). No personal responsibility or accountability in daily living. Belief that “It’s everyone else’s fault why things happen”!

      Ps. Not a Trump fan or either political parties so don’t go there please. I just believe in personal accountability and responsibility for my life and don’t blame others for my circumstances. Kinda like an Adult man or women lives!

    • @Nero I know. 78% pro mask speaks for itself
