  1. But the President said it was a hoax? A Democratic hoax. Could it be that he was also wrong/lying about ALL of the “hoaxes”?



    • @Troy Stocker : You don’t even really understand what globalism is. You have your Q anon wupty-doo version and you think that’s it. You’re so far behind, you think you’re in the lead.

    • @Troy Stocker : Oh thank you. You have just put in writing that you think the Chinese developed the coronavirus as a weapon against the West.

      Pleas explain why tf they would release it in their own country, on their own people?

      No wonder, Trump pretends he loves the poorly educated.

      @mrhicks73 I’m an international lawyer, speak and write in many languages. Who are you? You can check me out on FB. You can make fun today until someone in your family gets the virus and dies. I have an excellent health insurance, so I’m not afraid, how about you? You can continue believing Mr. Trump’s lies, it’s your choice.

    • String him up

  2. You should pray the virus away, I’m sure Pence would prefer that

    If you take a moment to read about the response from the Sth Korean Government who have managed to contain the spread most effectively, you’ll understand just how incompetent and down right dangerous Trumps handling of this crisis is!

      Trump supporters will go down with the virus. They dont think for themselves. Stay home, when you come out again maybe the sun will be shining and 20% of Repubs will be gone.

      Pub Comrad , well I want to sue Trump for not getting a better tax break like he promised. He promised that Mexico would pay for the world. He didn’t say they would pay for it through tariffs he said they would just pay for it. So I want to sue him too. Do you think there’s a fly in court?

  4. We don’t have healthcare, we have Profitcare. And there’s no profit in sick people! They will just close their doors. And we’re doing nothing now.

    • I am in Canada.

    • Cool slogans, Man.

      @Pearl Barkley that would result in 12 million projected deaths in America. Within 6 months. That would be roughly the state of Colorado and Wisconsin, I believe.

      @johnny walker well that’s what Santelli thinks about the value of human life… what a turd!!!

    • @Cast Boldly why give everyone medical care. Let people spread disease. I think it’s a GREAT idea that the under insured are putting the toilet tissue and paper towels in the dispensers at work and public places. Please wipe your butt, hands and face with that tissue. Fun fact- you can as easily contract a virus through your rectum as your mouth or eyes because the tissue is so thin. Go eat at a restaurant and use the bathroom. LOL.

  5. The Governor’s have already done more then the federal government. I trust my Governor more than the Mad King to deal with COVID-19 because Trump might already have and not know about it.

    Only in America do folks think that speaking objectively of the reality others have faced and we soon will, is characterized as panicking or alarming

    #maatwca (make America a third world country again). And The Dotard successfully completed the job in less than three years…

    • Mamy Fatou Touray | March 12, 2020 at 5:25 AM | Reply

      You are right, America is just acting like a third world country, you can’t interfere in other nations affairs and you can’t simply handle your own

  10. Wow, this is really sobering. It’s good to get facts. Thank you for giving us the truths.

    Finally someone who knows the number of beds, of ventilators and the number of hospitals. Must be someone who is not in the Trump government.

    • All irrelevant. Everyone’s going to get it if the vaccine takes 6 months-1 year to develop. Take your vitamins, wash your hands, and if you’re old get your affairs in order.

    • S. Lee Mccauley | March 12, 2020 at 5:40 AM | Reply

      @Ryan B those that live that long May get the vaccine. By then it will make little difference. Most will have contracted it.

    • @S. Lee Mccauley What I’m saying is, because the vaccine is going to take so long to develop and because how highly contagious COVID is, everyone will contract it.

    • Kevin McCarthy just stated the repubs will not support the Dems corona virus bill. Unreal!

      The true enemies are those in power here in commiefornia. Examples include but not limited to. Nancy Pelosi, diane Feinstein, Gavin Newsome, Kampala harris, ( i know its spelled wrong but i dont have enough respect for her to chang it). The list does keep going but I don’t have the time

    • Democrats are the real enemy…..

      They want anarchy and chaos so they can implement their Communist agenda…

  13. Come to Finland: godless vegan socialists are the happiest and best educated – TOP of the world index.
    We feel very sorry for the poor American people and the USA with its eleven carrier groups, and, your health service that no-one can afford to use.

    • @Ian Sinclair Question: If a man is so mentally incompetent that he cannot go out and buy his own health insurance policy, then how can he attract an Australian woman who will respect him?

    • @Jeff Gibson You just made my argument…FYI anti trust is a spurious reference in this case. In a FOR profit system it might be a lame argument but in a single payer it means nothing as it is by nature a monopoly based on providing a service not making a profit. Rich whiners can always TOP UP with extra coverage for better rooms and the option to pay for quicker service even in a single pay system.

    • @Jeff Gibson go inform yourself and quit parroting FOX BS

    • @Graham Drew Have fun driving your socialist car to your socialist hospital. What do you want to drive? An East German Trabant? A Yugoslavian Yugo?

  14. States with zero case because they haven’t been tested

    Why not include casinos on the list of “places people may become infected” ? Lots of people, from all over the planet frequent casinos. Touching slots, touching each other accidentally, money changing hands.
    I’m just saying…

      Loweta Carroll exactly what I was thinking this morning

      I was at Mohegan spa 3 weeks ago… ended up with inner ear pain and then sick a week later with type A flu. You are correct that it was probably the literal “hot bed,” that made me sick. There maybe a correlation because people do come from all over.

      @Pink Lady that’s one good idea

    • If you are that stupid to go into gatherings at this point in time, you deserve to get it!

      Hotels at Casinos could be used as quarantine facilities

  16. This virus is the reason why everyone needs healthcare.

    • Really? So we didn’t need it before?

    • David Miller | March 13, 2020 at 9:53 AM | Reply

      @MR intel We did, but this sort of thing is the reason we need socialized healthcare. I don’t care how rich or poor you are, and the virus doesn’t either. Bill Gates could catch the virus from the homeless wino down the street.

    Now you know why the Chinese created all those massive ‘patient warehouses’ they called hospitals.
