    Trump will demonstrate competent leadership in a matter of weeks, says science fiction writer.

      Just let R.L. Stine finish the writing for Trump please.

      What? To himself? What’s the plot? Or as trump says “Whattsa plot?” I have typed the phrase “stranger than fiction” so many times in the last 3 weeks! It deserves a new genre….”FICTION fiction”. Very Trumponian, as it doubles down.

    • Democrats haven’t been competent for years…for proof just look at Maxine Waters, AO Cortez, Chucky Schumer,Cory Booker and (Oh it’s 1965 again)Bernie Sanders.

      Good thing I wasn’t drinking my coffee just then, or I would have laughed and inhaled some.

    Why believe a scientist when we have a self anointed stable genius in the White House!

      @Kim Kolb so true! It’s a roller coaster ride.

  6. I just canโ€™t imagine how *_profoundly stupid_* you have to be to believe that Traitor Trump is actually smart.

    • if, the corona is going to linger around forever. open up the country so ppl can go back to work, start living, pay ppl more than 1.2k each. pay ppl at least one month worth of salary. force ppl to wear masks. distribute masks to everyone equally and distribute toilet paper equally while at it.

      S. Korea never blocked Chinese from coming into their country. they had crazy religious group (more than 300,000 members) spreading the corona. SK never closed any of their businesses. all the stores were open during the whole time.
      Government quickly took over all the mask companies and distributed to everyone equally by using the system that they use to get prescription drugs. and even though their country is so closed to china. less than 300 ppl died. most of them were ppl who were in the hospital for a long time before corona came.

      so you can expect a lot of previous sick ppl dying getting corona while in the hospital in the US.They also quickly produced test kits.
      America is more than capable of doing all these things. Government is just not doing any work saying things like it’s a flu. dont wear masks. don’t go to work(sooo many ppl lost their jobs.), it’s Chinese fault(yes, it is but what are we doing about it?). it’s WHO fault. my score of responding to corona is 11 out of 10,
      and i just can’t believe how many nursing homes are effected by this. so sad.

      @JuandisimoI’m saying to you respectfully, it’s wasn’t about excuses for President #45. I pointed out that COVID 19 is now the new normal to the world. We are still learning more about this stranger infection. However, you’re right about # 45, Trump. He needs to step aside to face reality and let the experts continue providing facts to us. Then we can and will proceed living. God bless!๐Ÿ˜Š Later………..

    The clown-in-the-house is so incompetent and deeply corrupt, that instead of packed churches, he might get packed morgues for Easter Sunday. Letโ€™s pray it wonโ€™t happen, but he has only dealt chaos by the carload from the beginning, why should something be different now?

  10. This is why a single 1200 check will be meaningless in the end.

    I rather listen to scientists over politicians when it comes to a pandemic.

  13. People of America kick that clown out of office ,and have the doctors guide you

    • yeah phony doctors that will lead us into an economic collapse and loss of freedom? no thanks…you can keep your tyranny

      @J T are you serious?? Some of the oldest most open and stable democracies in the world are taking measures of. Confinement, that does not have nothing to do with tyranny, those are just profilactic meassures!! Our freedoms are intact!!!

    • I can’t look at him without wanting to slit his throat.

  14. The virus in this country started when Trump was inaugurated, and it has been a terrible thing to watch.

    • Dulcie Parker | April 7, 2020 at 5:02 PM | Reply

      True,some devastatingly affected, others mildly, but still carrying on & not stopping the infection simply by their silence & not speaking out. Huzzah to all the nurses & doctors who spoke out,some losing jobs. With out them, change would’ve been slower. What’s the diff between a med pro speaking out against their boss & the criminality of telling them to not wear masks & a gov. employee speaking out against the criminality of his boss breaking the law?

  16. *politician* โ€œitโ€™ll be gone soonโ€

    • Chase Jordan Trump is sick. He is a pathological liar, racist, sociopath and just plain ignorant…but his con artist abilities are on point. They enabled him to slither into the white house and portray himself as the president of the USA

      @Gwen Lusane

    Ed Yongs article in The Atlantic was excellent. He covers all scenarios past, present, and future about Coronavirus if you get a chance you should read it.

    This is all happening because of poor jealous narcissistic leadership
