    The Boot-Legg President in the WH is NOT Interested in Covid. He’s took Busy on a Witch Hunt, Chasing Lies & Deceit about the Election that he LOST.

    • @Harald Fuchs you mean unborn white life….get it right

Trump has plenty azz kissers but he no longer has the seat in the WH and that is all that matters, pathetic loser, go join the other pathetic losers and celebrate but the victory in the WH… will go to BIDEN!

    😷Mask-it so you don’t end up in a casket!😷

    • @Angelo Gomez You’re just name-calling, and you believe that a human, Jesus, is also a God. Didn’t the earth exist before Jesus did? Isn’t a God a powerful being that created everything? How could Jesus ever be a God if he didn’t create the earth, create life, or create anything in the universe. Jesus is a human, not a God.

    • please stop pretending that’s enough to protect you! Social distance & stay home as much as possible! & if you haven’t had a flu vaccine, get it now! that’s the most effective thing you can do to help save lives right now!

    • @Mark Campbell Actually, it’s the wrong message. Masks barely protect you. That’s not what they are for. They are to protect other people FROM you. Not so catchy, but “Mask-it so someone’s grandma doesn’t end up in a casket”.

    • @David M So, are you a psychopath? Are you the reason for the exponential spread of COVID-19? Don’t say no, because you cannot know that. You may be spewing virus without any symptoms. You may have already caused many deaths. Unless you have been tested and given results almost immediately you cannot know you are virus free. And tomorrow you will not know again.

    • Sixpint, did the world run out of Hydroxychloroquine and/or Ivermectin???

  4. Trumps legacy… the largest death toll in history.

  5. And the cultists think it disappeared!🤦‍♀️😥

    • And Trump was truthful when saying a vaccine will be ready by election day. Covidiots

      @V so typical of Leftists strumming off to morbid fantasies

    • @Marcus Aurelius so my friend in the states who lost his 50 year old mom to it was *old age*

      Its only “old ppl” and they don’t count!
      Your country is s disgrace to the world, even if it _was_ just elderly…do you not have respect for your elders?
      Are you an entitled zoomer baby?
      Need your rattle?

    • @Marcus Aurelius
      Unlike Right-wing lunatics, with us it only remains a fantasy.

    • @Marcus Aurelius also, please continue to like your own coments, bc nobody else is gonna.
      you pathetic, sad little waste of oxygen

  6. And most of these were preventable? Unbelievable Trump should face genocide charges

    • @richard boone to be fair, a lot of those 70 million that voted for him probably believed the virus was a hoax and ‘would disappear after the election’.
      You guys in the USA are pretty much locked in for a very grim next few months, at the very least. I wish it wasn’t that way.

      By International Law.., President Donald J. Trump could be brought up on charges of.., “Crimes Against Humanity”. President Donald J. Trump has done (NOTHING) to ‘protect’ the American people, from the deadly COVID-19 coronavirus.. With over 230K thousand Americans’ have (died) of the deadly COVID-19 coronavirus in the United States and should be brought up on.., “Crimes Against Humanity” ! ! Chant in front of the ‘White House’: “Move Him Out ! !” “Lock Him Up ! !” “Move Him Out ! !” “Lock Him Up ! !” ..

    • He will at the Hauge for crimes against humanity.

  7. Just the tip of the iceberg 😔

  8. Not to worry, after all the head of the Covid task force canceled his vaccation in Florida.
    Oh, he’s still not doing his job but lobbying for his boss? Nevermind.

  9. Trump letting covid out of control so that he can throw it to Biden and accuse Biden not doing a good job, using it as an leverage to run for 2nd term in 2024, im calling it right now

    • @Crebb 2184 shut the f up

    • Fauci was in charge and they love him and the states were in charge but they don’t hate the states! Weird how the West burning and the South hurricanes are Trumps fault also! Will the radical Left ever grow up?

    • @Ron Alaska Trump is the so called president the buck stops with him. So you are either a Russian or just duh!!!!

    • @Fernando you are a Chinese or socialist ! I am a university honors grad from before socialist indoctrination! Don’t try to act like you are intelligent when you don’t even know who the President is! Try thinking on your own I know it’s hard but try it!

    • @Ron Alaska First of all that is racist, second of all university degree does not give you a moral high ground and finally, nothing you wrote so far suggest that you are more intelligent than others. Keep telling people to grow up because they dont share your views. Keep throwing personal attacks and racist remarks, because you dont know how to make a constructive argument. I know it’s hard but try it!

  10. At least give the vaccine to health care workers. They continue to use PPE also as a secondary precaution.

    • 👏👏👏👏👏👏👏

    • They are first on the list in New Zealand.

    • At this point in time, I think give it to everyone in nursing homes. As soon as it’s proven safe, give it to health care workers. Optionally, give health care workers the option of having it before being proven safe if that’s what they choose to do, particularly for the older ones who are at high risk of covid & not so high risk of 50 years of side effects if there’s a problem with it

    • @Lilac Lizard So you’re saying make everyone in nursing homes be Guinea pigs before we know if it’s safe. Got it. Just FYI, not everyone in nursing homes is in their 90’s. I’ve been in nursing homes numerous times when I was in my 40’s and 50’s, when I was recovering from major surgery or critical illnesses. Here’s what I think of your idea. 🖕

    He so busy trying to stay in power covid 19 isn’t on his Radar.😬

  12. And the great narcissist, refusing to get out of the way of competent doctors and technicians, leaves the people in danger ever longer demanding unreasonably the glorification of his ego

  13. He’s given up on Covid.. he’s too busy trying to get out of jail.

  14. MAGA zombies:” If I haven’t seen it, it doesn’t exist…” It is starting to make sense if you think about this:” None of them have ever seen their own brain.” Greetings from Germany

    Sure, the government should put measures into place to reduce the spread, but given that they are refusing, that does not prevent individuals from doing their part. It doesn’t have to be mandated to be effective. Social distance, wear masks, wash hands frequently, use sanitiser, only go out when absolutely essential. Every drop of personal responsibility helps.

  16. What I don’t understand is why a lot of Americans feel that wearing a mask and social distancing goes against their constitutional rights. I had assumed that being considerate and compassionate was humane and decent, by not wearing a mask and social distancing you are potentially putting more and more lives at risk. I am not directing this at the conspiracy whack jobs that think the whole COVID-19 issue is fake and that it doesn’t really exist. What are Americans going to do when the death toll overtakes the million mark?

    • 330,000,000 people in America… 235,000 Deaths… That’s less than 1/10 of 1% death rate. 1 million deaths would be 3/10 of 1%. In all the years past when you went to the Dr with the flu did the Dr ever wear a mask? Did you? You could go to the pharmacy hacking your brains out and no mask required.. why do they care now? Do you know what makes our immune systems weak? Its sugar and fast food, why are they still selling that stuff? 99% survival rate with Covid… This panic doesn’t make sense to me.

    • @Sagittarius75 it may not make sense to you, it could be that you are one of the lucky ones who won’t be affected by Covid. I’ve never had the flu, so can’t comment about hacking your brains out, but normally when I cough I do it into a handkerchief and not over other people. And comparing Covid with the Flu doesn’t really work, because it has taken 6 years of Flu deaths to match 7 months of Covid deaths in the US. The UK now has guidelines compelling people to wear a mask when on public transport, going into shops or gas stations, and can get fined if they don’t comply. Many other countries have implemented similar guidelines, why is so difficult for some Americans to ignore the truth and protect others. Now that doesn’t make sense to me.

      Deejay, America is the most selfish, self-centered, childish country in the world today. When the 1M Covid-19 death number is annouced will most Americans care about it? NO! All that matters here in this country is the stock market and how much your investment account increased that day. Bottom line=KING DOLLAR IS ALL THAT MATTERS in America.

    • Putin and beijing say ” democraxy is over rated..see.”

    • @Sagittarius75 That’s not how you calculate the death rate of anything. Take the number of deaths and divide by the NUMBER OF INFECTIONS to get the death rate. We’ve had 10 million infections. A 1% death rate would be 100,000. A CDC estimate back a month or so ago was that the US had actually exceeded 300,000 deaths by that point. An independent research study found that the US had 300,000 deaths by sometime in August. The actual US death rate has been over 3%. Beyond that, something like a third of everyone infected has long term effects. A recent study using brain scans of people who gave had Covid-19 controlled to those who haven’t, found that recovered Covid-19 patients’ brains had damage equivalent to aging 10 years. How would you like to wake up tomorrow and find out that you are 10 years more forgetful, you reaction time is 10 years slower, and it was 10 years harder to formulate arguments?

  18. Hey wow, an American who actually “gets it”! Living in Australia, we’ve had a winter with covid, we’ve known since then, that what this lady is saying is where you are going. Please take it seriously America! This IS a winter virus! It’s season IS the same as the flu! For months it’s been tracking at the same ratio of cases as the flu, but at a rate of 19,000 covid cases to every 1 flu case. So think about what that means for covid cases in a country that gets 60,000 flu deaths each winter!

    Governors need to take control of this virus & manage it!

    • Try telling this to a pathetic loser, who rips off his mask and walks into a room full of people at the White House. I blame him for the excessive death total. We are trapped here with a lunatic. Please pray for us.

    • ​@Linda OBrien yeh, this is why I say governors need to take control, cause I think it’s blatantly obvious the Whitehouse won’t be until January 20th. (fun fact, my spellcheck thinks whitehouse is spelt wrong & suggests I correct it to whorehouse lol)

      The Melbourne Victoria outbreak was handled entirely by the state’s leader. The Aussie PM was there to support him on almost everything he did, but he handed control over to the state leader because the virus was confined to the state, so that was what worked best. The key was that state borders were closed, so no-one could move in or out with the virus, which meant the state leader had all the power he needed to control the entire outbreak in the state.

      That is the easiest option for the US to go down right now & that seems to be the direction Biden is going, if he can guarantee states the replacement funds for whatever they spend on covid now, including paying people to stay home if they conduct a lockdown & offer them support if they lockdown the state borders & require 14 days quarantine for any non-essential movement into the state, then it should be possible to contain & even eliminate it in all the states with competent governors

      @Linda OBrien Linda, I hear you 100%! Jan 20, 2021 this lunatic will be gone.

    • @Lilac Lizard I live in Michigan, and I’m sure you heard about the threat against our governor, Gretchen Whitmer. donnie boy hates her because she’s a strong woman. She took control and became a very strong voice in the fight against Covid-19. he encouraged the militia groups and white supremicists. But when the Michigan AG and local FBI caught on and stopped it, he took credit. He said his Federal people took care of it. Funny I thought they were OUR federal people.
      And I love your spell check story. If you capitalize the W and continue typing it converts it to White House. Yours is funnier.

  19. We should now call this the Trump- Pence virus!!!!!
