  1. This will be a deadly summer for the red states that ignored and lied about the seriousness of Covid 19!!! God help them!!!

    1. @Sarah Shah you really gotta look up the videos from haiti its amzing how those voices were ignored

    2. @Eddie Sanchez Unfortunately, both Hilary Clinton and Donald Trump were dismal candidates. Americans have to stop electing only rich people into government! Don’t Americans realise the rich only look out for themselves? They pass laws to help the rich and keep the poor downtrodden!🤷🏻‍♀️

    3. @Eddie Sanchez Just because politicians are corrupt in the past doesn’t mean you should keep turning a blind eye to the new ones! People have to start from somewhere and the present is the best place to start. Make politicians accountable and stop voting for politicians who have already shown they are corrupt!

    1. Steven Todd China is a perfect place to be locked down good, Hong Kong will follow through! Whoever like to stay home and be told what to do should move there!

  2. Incompetent government + uncooperative citizens = DISASTER

    Don’t count on the government, citizens help each other.

    1. Divided we fall. This is not a red state blue state thing. If we all can’t get our act together, this suffering will continue and our economy will not recover.

    2. The citizens are uncooperative because the government is incompetent. It has failed to earn the trust of the electorate.

    3. @Mod MINI US Citizen were in large parts uncooperative (for instance yelling for FREEDOM!!!! when guns should have been regulated, …) before Donald J. Dumb was “elected” into office.
      It is not the cause, it is an enhancing factor only.

    4. Yet freedom is not a privilege granted by the government. It is a God given right. It’s not up to you to decide who can exercise their Constitutional rights. Tyrants do that.

      a bit older info but still a good perspective
      As of Sunday morning, more than 24,300 people across the country have tested positive for the coronavirus and at least 376 have died.

      The flu is notoriously infectious, and, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the virus has infected up to an estimated 49 million people in the U.S. between October 2019 and February 2020. It’s also estimated to have killed up to 52,000 people this current flu season, according to the CDC.

  3. It boggles the mind that, for reasons of very poor federal leadership, Americans have been led to believe that COVID-19 is just another bad case of the flu. Please get the facts straight, people, before many more of you get sick and more lives are lost!

    1. @sal been Since you cannot articulate a legitimate claim for your statement, we must assume you are a bot troll. You are late for your divisivenes meeting report. Russia is waiting on your Uganda trolls for an update.

    2. Look at all the liberal states and cities. They need the government like China not trump, China is a perfect place to be locked down good, Hong Kong will follow through! Whoever like to stay home and be told what to do should move there!

    3. @lo chi —
      If you want to get very sick and have no fear of dying, by all means get as sick as you want. But this is an extremely contagious and deadly virus, which can easily pass from one person to another. Therefore, if you follow the most basic guidelines, you not only protect yourself but countless other people. So, what’s wrong with exercising common sense and respecting your family and the community at large?

    4. @sal been, the smart ones are. They’re the ones making money off of the rest of you. But they need a flock of mindless authoritarians who will swallow whatever they’re spoon-fed…including the idea that they’re the smart ones.
      They thank you for being so cooperative.

  4. This is what happens when you listen to Trump and re-open to quick…the next question is what people will now listen and bring the numbers down

  5. Why can’t the American people file a class action lawsuit vs Trump, over his failure to protect the American people from Covid 19? it has merit and it would be the ultimate democratic outcome…

    1. @Mod MINI you dont need the military , dude
      they are non political
      the citizens need to accomplish this

    1. In the US it became the trump virus the day he said it was a hoax. Months later he still isn’t taking it seriously and makes dangerous statements and actions that will effect all of us.

      Is it a good idea for trump or any of the people that have been in known hotspots to be traveling to multiple states? How about Jim Jordan, he was in Tulsa(without a mask) and refused to wear one at the Barr hearing yesterday as well. The whole lot of them should be in quarantine.

    2. The pandemic super spreaders are out spreading the REPUBLICAN TRUMP Pandemic virus killing people .

  6. Sad, all these “I want ma freedom!” babies don’t understand that freedom comes with responsibility.

    1. “Freedom comes with responsibility”. THANK YOU! This is something I learned decades ago, but I’m afraid it’s something most in this country really never learn at all…..

    2. Look at all the liberal states and cities. They need the government like China not trump, China is a perfect place to be locked down good, Hong Kong will follow through! Whoever like to stay home and be told what to do should move there!

    1. Right? I’m so disheartened to hear/read SO many people truly believing that cov19 is a staged conspiracy, but I’m even more ashamed of my wishing the virus to enter their lives.

    2. I find it fascinating that they believe anyone could pull off a conspiracy of a global scale like this. Democrats must be secret spy geniuses (genii) in their minds.

  7. A Republican Governor running the State and supporting tRump explains it all. Your death from the Coronavirus is just collateral damage in the Republican wheel of commerce.

    1. Linda Clark Look at all the liberal states and cities. They need the government like China not trump, China is a perfect place to be locked down good, Hong Kong will follow through! Whoever like to stay home and be told what to do should move there!

    2. Linda Clark Look at the numbers of all the liberal states and cities. They need the government like China not trump, China is a perfect place to be locked down good, Hong Kong will follow through! Whoever like to stay home and be told what to do should move there!

    3. Look at all the numbers of liberal states and cities. They need the government like China not trump, China is a perfect place to be locked down good, Hong Kong will follow through! Whoever like to stay home and be told what to do should move there!

    4. So are there republican governors in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Illinois, and California? Check you brain and eyes or your math, maybe you had none!

  8. *This is exactly what happens when you disregard science and FACTS… I find it hard to have empathy for people who were told how to stay safe and refused to listen.. This is what they get…Now, unfortunately, they are going to spread the virus once again, when this could have been almost under control.. Great Job Republicants… We have 5 new cases in our county today, in a county of over 100,000.. Try wearing a mask..*

    1. I kinda’ lean towards empathy because of the state of education in USA. It is hard to imagine an adult in USA would not believe doctors or science. But they don’t.
      How did they get through school? I understand religious schools may be against science, but the majority, in USA, go to public school.

    2. China is a perfect place to be locked down good, Hong Kong will follow through! Whoever like to stay home and be told what to do should move there!

    3. Look at New York , New Jersey, Illinois, California before you say anything, Houston is also a liberal soon in Texas. China is a perfect place to be locked down good, Hong Kong will follow through! Whoever like to stay home and be told what to do should move there!

    4. It’s NOT your right to infect others , The pandemic super spreaders are out spreading the REPUBLICAN TRUMP Pandemic virus killing people .

  9. Call it the Trump Flu. Nobody has done as much to cause this contagion to spread its deathly wings. Besides, he likes naming things after himself.

    1. Gold painted ” Trump Virus” signs everywhere including on the fence around the white house. I’m sure Trump would love the branding.

    2. Positive or negative, a narcissist loves attention. It wouldn’t surprise me if after years go by, he will brag that he was president during the beginning of the most life changing event in modern history. You know what? Let him have it. Closure for leaving the WH. No need to dispute a “rigged” election to explain a loss. No need to accept that you were never qualified to lead a country. Just leave knowing you were “#first!”

  10. We are witnessing one of the greatest failures of basic governance and basic leadership in modern times.

    Trump has surrendered to Coronavirus and is doing nothing to protect American livelihoods, businesses and industries and whole communities. No policy on how to help limit the ongoing damage to the economy because of the virus. Instead he’s the only leader in the world to have held 2 indoor super spreader events in the middle of a National health emergency without the requirement to wear a mask or practice social distancing.

    1. Bono Budju you mean the liberal controlled states and city. These people need China leader ! China is a perfect place to be locked down good, Hong Kong will follow through! Whoever like to stay home and be told what to do should move there!

    2. @lo chi Disinfectant Donnie has failed America during a National emergency with still no nationwide coordinated emergency response plan to address these issues. Only Atgolf can enact the DPA. He can issue executive orders to protect statues but not the American people, their livelihoods, businesses and industries and whole communities.

    3. Yet freedom is not a privilege granted by the government. It is a God given right. It’s not up to you to decide who can exercise their Constitutional rights. Tyrants do that.

  11. When we have a criminal president and corrupt government officials who are incompetent and incapable of rational thought you get this mess!

    1. It wasn’t just that, it was all the sheer stupidity too. The internet was full of people calling it a hoax.

  12. It’s saddening because I know Lina Hidalgo tried to implement policies that would of helped us stopped the spread of Covid-19. Only to have Govenor Greg Abbot overrule her with executive order. And the people praised him for it. Now people are realizing maybe she was actually right in trying to implement those orders.

    1. Exactly. Now even our moron governor is starting to backpedal and is warning us that another lockdown is possible.
      I wasn’t too sure about Judge Hidalgo. I was used to Judge Emmet I guess. But she seems to be the voice of reason. Now if more people would just listen.

    2. Good for her. Now Abbott is seeing the error of his GOP ways?? Rick Scott? Marco Rubio? Kemp? You states voted these idiots in. NOW you have the power to VOTE THEM OUT.

    3. Aa a Houstonian, I believe that Mayor Turner and Judge Hidalgo have done an excellent job in their efforts to keep us residents safe during this pandemic. In contrast, Governor Abbott is cut from the same cloth as Trump, so I dont need to write anything more about his way of thinking and decision making. I knew this was going to happen, and im sure Abbott was warned before he started ALL this agressive opening up, but he doesnt care, and gave into the Republican agenda of putting the economy before people’s lives. To be honest, he needs to go!

    4. @natalie harless I totally agree, but Kemp STOLE the election in Georgia! He was the secretary of state and quietly purged close to 800,000 voters in counties with a history of voting democratic during his campaign. Many republicans disapproved of him also, but just weren’t ready to cross party lines for a black female!

  13. Fires are starting. Where is Trump? He said they would be put out. The states next to the state on fire is catching on fire.

  14. Covid19 is Trump’s pistol. America is his Park Avenue. And nobody can stop him as he shoots the people down.

    1. J Skoog China is a perfect place to be locked down good, Hong Kong will follow through! Whoever like to stay home and be told what to do should move there!

  15. This is still the first wave, why on earth did anyone think that a pandemic can be controlled by ‘miracles’ or prayers or magically go away? New Zealand will gladly give advice if asked.

    1. Why? Because we have defunded and denigrated education, science, and critical thinking for DECADES. (Actually, as Asimov pointed out, this has been a major thread in this country since its beginning. It is just that that train was put on hyperdrive around the time Reagan and his thugs began to take control.) You do that, you can easily hoodwink people by saying what they want to hear, what reinforces their prejudices and ignorance. In other words, we have a national Dunning-Kruger effect at work here…..

    2. Thank you. Your success in this disaster has been a source of joy and admiration worldwide. So happy you are doing so well. Anyone with brains is imitating you anyway – your example is as good as advice.

  16. Fox News is the real pandemic. The mosquitoes of ignorance. Everything wrong with America in a Nutjob.

    1. Nitrobuz Ae China is a perfect place to be locked down good, Hong Kong will follow through! Whoever like to stay home and be told what to do should move there!

    2. Nitrobuz Ae Look at all the liberal states and cities. They need the government like China not trump, China is a perfect place to be locked down good, Hong Kong will follow through! Whoever like to stay home and be told what to do should move there!
