    Homeless people in UK have better healthcare system than Americans.

    Let that sink in, while you figure out why…..

      @Mark Haddox you’re! Perhaps brush up on your English or is it your second language.

    • @Beverly Antoniou . The English, Scottish, Welsh, Irish are the British. No English isn’t my second language. I went to a mostly black school that wasn’t that great until university level. So your kinda being racist. Nice try you bigot.

    • @Beverly Antoniou . Be specific what history?

    • @Beverly Antoniou . Are you a flat earther? What other crazy things do you believe?

    • @Mark Haddox See: as long as you feel the urge to differentiate between white and other, we are not getting anywhere. That,to my mind, is the First guard you’d have to take off in my mind. Until then, I don’t perceive you as a free man (or however you identify), but governed by fear.

  2. How can ANYBODY continue to support this soulless, despicable man? What does it say about the person who still follows him?

    • Charlie brown yes , can’t wait for you to re-elect Trump and see America go down. Would love to see America on its knees after another 4 years with your loser president

    • freedomisnotafreehandout freedomisnotafreehandout

    • @democrats are anti American democrats hate America Ah, an orange koolaid drinker fascist here. Must feel awkward not having a soul. You wouldn’t know freedom if it came up and coughed in your face. But then you’d at least perhaps get to know what wearing a ventilator is like.

    • @Jason Canmore Your right, sorry. I couldn’t help myself. I fed a troll.

    • It says all that needs to be said about them! Trash! Just like he is.

  3. Trump lied. Americans died! It is that simple.


    • @Taddy 4321 2nd AMENDMENT A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.


    • StormRunGaming
      Missy Hissy (Kayleighvanka) … rifles through her binder finds a quote about something Hilary is alleged to have said in the 90’s with a tenuous connection to the question at hand, spits it out like a nervous teen, (about 2 beats faster and 2 notes higher than her normal speech), then turns on her heel and bolts for the exit to avoid answering any follow-up questions.

      You could smell the desperation on her and see it in her swervey little eyes, when asked about the February tape of trump “playing down” C19.

      When you think of the dignified Whitehouse press briefings of previous administrations this pitiful sorority-show is just sad.

    • @Charlie brown I suspect you have low IQ. The fallacy in your position is that because more people die from Cancer is not RELEVANT to Covid. You may as well say 26 million Russians died in WWII and this is small by comparison. This sort of argument (and yes I talking above your head) is known in logic circles as a ‘Straw Man’. And yes it is a big deal – it is a big deal to those who contract the disease, to the families of those who have died. One word of advice acneface: keep your mouth shut. After Rump loses he will be like Nixon. All his voters will deny having supported him.

    • Trump and his Administration are all responsible for their lies to the American public.

  5. Patrick Peacock | September 10, 2020 at 1:14 AM | Reply

    It murder plain and simple

  6. Let me get this straight. Trump is on recording in February stating that covid is “deadly stuff” and “deadlier than the flu”
    And yet, he proceeds to hold campaign rallies, discourage mask wearing, and oh yeah, he called the virus a hoax.
    I bet he made sure his family was well protected though.
    The fact that people will still vote for him blows my mind to pieces.

  7. In the medical field we call this criminal negligence. Trump should be locked up for purposely knowing how dangerous Covid-19 is and lying to every single American. This is disgusting.

      @Ray vogel: Your claims that Trump has no grasp of reality is contradicted by the fact that he lies about what he’s done. It proves that he’s aware that what he’s done is wrong, which proves that he is not criminally insane. Being insane isn’t a defense, you know. You don’t get out of prison just because you’re insane.

    • @Jo-Erlend Schinstad If the judge rules that the defendant is NOT aware of the consequences of his actions (following the advice of experts)…then he or she is sent to a mental institution for the criminally insane (that is the law in every state). If and when the psychiatric team decides that the patient understands what he or she has done, then they are remitted to the court once again to face a prison sentence or be released for time served. And I totally disagree. The PP does not comprehend that his actions have resulted in 1000’s of unnecessary deaths.

    • Jo-Erlend Schinstad | September 13, 2020 at 1:36 PM | Reply

      @Ray vogel: Then why did he say that he did?

    • @Jo-Erlend Schinstad Please understand that the PP has no awareness of “others” or any comprehension of what pain, suffering and death he has caused. John Lennon was killed 40 years ago by Chapman. He has never gone to prison but is still incarcerated
      and under treatment in a mental hospital.

    • Jo-Erlend Schinstad | September 13, 2020 at 3:33 PM | Reply

      @Ray vogel Chapman was unable to form intent. It is literally impossible for a person to say what Trump said without understanding the situation. If it was true as you claim that Trump has absolutely no understanding of other people’s ability to feel fear, then how would it be possible for him to say that because this virus is so much more deadly than other diseases, it needs to be downplayed so people won’t go into panic?

      What you’re saying is completely nonsensical. What he said is completely rational. It’s wrong, but it’s rational. His intent is obvious and since a criminal defense of insanity _requires_ the inability to form intent, you are wrong.

      And I’m done talking about this. The whole thread is stupid since it was his choice that he was elected to make. Hence it would never be criminal anyway.

  8. Reporter: ” Mr. President, do you admit to downplaying the seriousness of the virus?”
    Trump: “What virus?”

    • @Tails September 1, 2020 — About 94% of people who have died from COVID-19 in the U.S. also had other contributing conditions listed on their death certificates, according to new data released by the CDC.You wanna see hypocrisy at its finest????
      The saddest thing for you, is that you actually think the Democrats aren’t corrupt. VOTE for Trump! Obama deported more immigrants than any other sitting president TO DATE. Facts homie.

    • @Charlie brown Youtube Videos are not a creditable source.

      Anyone can make a video I want official medical documents backed up by medical professionals, CDC, WHO. Stuff like that.

    • Trump: I never met the virus….I don’t think I ever talked to him…..

    • @david J


    • @Charlie brown By the annual numbers that they themselves cite (anywhere from 12k – 80k per year from flu), we’ve lost at least twice as many people (190k) in just a few months.

  9. WeTheProgressives | September 10, 2020 at 1:52 AM | Reply

    *Yeah, he ALLOWS 190,000+ People to DIE!! And the wants to be RE-ELECTED ??? He should be IN JAIL!! IF YOU VOTE FOR HIM, YOU WILL HAVE THE BLOOD OF ALL THE FUTURE DEAD ON YOUR HANDS! Remember That !!*

  10. So Trump has broken the post office to keep mail-in votes from being counted, he has called service members ‘losers’ and ‘suckers’ for serving and sacrificing, he’s damaged long-standing international relationships possibly beyond repair, he’s cuddled with Kim Jung Un and kowtowed to Vladimir Putin, and he’s purposely mislead everyone in the country on the severity of the virus.

    Short of calling in an air strike on Des Moines or Fayetteville, I can’t see how he could do much more harm to America.

    • Bobbie Zaborsky | September 10, 2020 at 2:00 PM | Reply

      He has the nuclear codes…so it can get worse

    • SmileMan64 aka BenjaMan64 | September 10, 2020 at 5:50 PM | Reply

      With Trump, it can get worse. Much worse. Get him out of the White House, Americans. Greetings from Mexico.

    • We still have (most) freedom of speech. We still have the right to vote.
      I don’t think anyone really appreciates just how much more we have yet to lose.

    • Trump is currently having invitations prepared if he loses the election to other world dictators to have a tour and demonstration of our top secret military facilities…….for a nice fat fee…..payable to the Trump Crime Family

  11. All those refrigerated trucks with hundreds of dead bodies in them because there was no place to put them.. bodies laying out for the world to see on television, it was more important to protect his own interests than protect the human race. He is a murderer. Mass murderer.

    • @Mardi Taylor I can respect your stance on the non-violent outcome, but I think eventually someone is going to end him due to his many disparagement’s to the citizens of the US.

    • @S Hamilton I agree with you.. dead man walking.

    • @S Hamilton I am very surprised no one has tried to do so yet. Seems like every president in my lifetime has had an attempt on his life.

    • LOL! you are so easily led. You’re talking about Cuomo and De Blasio’s failures. Trump had nothing to do with that bodies stacked in trailers. What else was going to happen when you order sick people into nursing homes?

    • @S Hamilton Just give him to Iran.

    Biden For President And Harris For VP. Vote Blue Wave This November Please

  13. The young lady is correct: Trump has betrayed the American people.

  14. *Trump LIES whenever he says “we’ve done a great job, it will all go away soon, in a very short period of time.” Let’s end this nightmare on November 3rd. Vote the Moronavirus out.*

  15. He gave these interviews to win Woodward over… he truly is an imbecile.

    • The fact he spilled his guts in lonely late night calls to woodward is just too weird. Especially the state secret weapons stockpile. Imbecile indeed!!

  16. He shall be prosecuted for this traitor behavior against the American People! PERIOD!

  17. We need to develop more clearly our understanding of ‘Genocide’ under trump’s leadership: “Genocide is the intentional action to destroy a people—usually defined as an ethnic, national, racial, or religious group—in whole or in part.” 195,239 Americans are dead, so far, from trump’s intentional withholding of facts, and his intentional lying about the facts. He intentionally “Played it down”. His intentional spread of disinformation and his intentional petulance are the basis for the genocide taking place in America today. This racist leader, liar, and traitor, intentionally put American lives at risk with his self-congratulatory rallies! Trump has intentionally ignored scientific advice and recommendations, leading to his catastrophic negligence! He needs to be charged with genocide!🤬🤬🤬

  18. This man believes in nothing other than himself and getting reelected VOTE AND ENSURE HE DOESN’T

    • LMAO Just Google- did Trump win the popular vote in 2016 When yer done being angry, Google- Council for National Policy

    • @Christopher No, he did not win the popular vote. He lost by almost 3 million – spin it anyway you like, but you’re just lying to yourself.

    • @Inde D What?!

    • James Dyer: He only seems to believe in himself. Take an hour, yes, an hour, and think of all the details you can remember of stuff he’s done or said since June 15, 2015. (We’ll leave out the birtherism junk and Central Park Five ignominy.) Take all his lies and try to figure out why anyone in his right mind would lie so much when so often it just isn’t necessary for any logical reason. Then untwist them, flip them and you’ll find out the truth about Donald Trump, truth that he knows better than anyone else. He’s 74, and thought he had finally turned himself into a success with his TV show, though, as he angrily pointed out, he never won an Emmy. RuPaul has six of them. Not really expecting to win the highest political office in the land on his first try, he knew he could spin a loss into a PR victory and some new TV gig. Now he knows once again that he and his whole life, except as the host of a single TV game show, is a disastrous failure, and there’s no time and no other endeavor that can rescue it. He’s in hock to Putin, which is all that is maintaining the façade of extreme wealth, and he still has two failed marriages. His children are reviled or mocked. Barron may not be, but never in the history of morose teenagers has any teenager looked more morose every time he is photographed with his father. The economy is in shambles and millions upon millions of Americans (but not close to herd immunity) have been sickened by a single malady.  

      By the time of the election, at least four times as many Americans will have been diagnosed with COVID as cancer this year. Think about that.

      He’s floundering about not even sure he has his base energized 53 days before the election, but clueless about how to expand his support. How do you think he feels deep inside? Confident? Ri-i-i-i-ght. He feels about as emotionally secure as an elephant hanging over the side of a cliff with his tail around a daisy. (Not my line. Someone’s charade stumper sent in to the old Stump the Stars TV show from the 1960’s. Trust me. At the time I thought it was hilarious.)

    • You could be describing creepy, sleepy, Joe or any democrat. Almost everything they are against now they were in favor of before Trump was elected. They just say whatever they need to now to get more votes. It doesn’t matter what they said yesterday, last week or last year. They know people like have short memories and believe whatever they are told by the democrat ‘leadership’. Hatred and political ideology can effect people in strange ways.

  19. He needs to be held accountable and charged as the murderer he is . Now is the time to stand together and get our country back. Vote him out. PLEASE HELP

  20. Trump: ” Vote for me, what do you have to lose?” Citizen: “Seems like, my country, my dignity and my life”.
