    The latest great news about NYC is that Trump has moved out, the mayor doing a great job

  3. The problem is Trump the cure is voting Trump out.

    • “The problem is tRump. The cure is to vote him – tRump – out.”

    • tRump and his lack of policies has to go. tRump for prison 2021

    • Trump not being president doesn’t make Covid go away. If your pushing that ridiculous premise, your out of your mind.

    • @Michael Kahr Republicans failed NY where I live or was it Democrat run elected governors/mayors that made matters worse? Those thousands of nursing home deaths didn’t happen without Cuomo signing off on it. Unfortunately he’s too busy writing a book on how great he did to take responsibility to this day for that horrendous decision. Thanks for adding to the death count. Smh

  4. I wish trump would stop playing that invisible accordian!

  5. NYC is not a Ghost town! I live here never left, stop stop lying TRUMP!

    My wife who is Thai just told me and showed me that the “World Health Organization” just asked Thailand how to achieve
    what they have with the coronavirus issues. I would like to applaud them. America has lost 689 people per million.
    Thailand has lost .8 per million. or America has lost 228,473 as of now and Thailand has lost 59. Who is taking care
    of who? America has 4 percent of the world’s population and 22 percent of the world’s confirmed Covid-19 deaths.
    IF YOU ARE WONDERING, See how we are doing compared to the rest of the world, it’s sickening if you are from the U.S.
    The rest of the world is serious!

    • also check out Taiwan; my brother lives there … unbelieveable low numbers. If there are the smallest risk you get quarantined at home for 14 days. An app is installed on your phone; you get calls and police comes by and check once in a while.
      Back in april some australian went out on a run and got caught… fined 30.000$

      In asia the mask comes on when there are the slightest thing… SARS is not that long ago

    • I check that site daily!
      I have one BIG question. This info is out there (updated several times a day)!
      Trump, puts out the ‘outrageous lies’ (“it’s, gong away, we’re rounding the corner”, etc.)
      Can his MAGA followers not read?
      They don’t care?
      Too lazy or stupid to want to know? WHAT? WELL?

      @Robert SteeleI post this daily hoping a Rumpster can read and think, maybe he or she will change their mind πŸ™‚

      @Lisa Zabriskie, that’s the reason I post it daily with updated figures so people will see that their prez sucks! thank you so so much πŸ™‚

  7. He talks like he’s just a bystander as opposed to being the President. 😳 😳

    LOL. He makes it seem like Biden is already president and he let down the country. LMAO. His only defense is saying ‘You can’t do that to people Joe.’

      @Lisa Zabriskie Ever stumbled about the word “sarcasm” in any dictionaire?
      Cambridge Dictionary :
      “the use of remarks that clearly mean the opposite of what they say, made in order to hurt someone’s feelings or to criticize something in a humorous way”
      No offense – Pat Doyle is very anti-Trump, IΒ΄ve seen other comments by him.

      @wolfgang simons apologies. Not enough sleep, my chemotherapy taking mom had just informed us, her son, an essential worker, has Covid. Again, apologies. Stay well.

      @Christina Jefferies yes apologies. See below if inclined. Stay well.

      @Lisa Zabriskie It’s fine, no apology needed. A very worrying time for you and your family, I wish you all well.

  9. If trump really had thevirus he was lucky, but I dont really think he did. Maybe if he did, all the meds really did help but we shall see more side effects other than his mental effect

  10. It’s a Ghost Town because Trump Prioritized Playing Golf in February than Working to Contain the Spread of Virus. Priorities……😏

  11. It’s not because of young people getting over the virus quickly it’s because of federal paid health care that you get but don’t want anybody else to have I have never heard you say your son it’s always Barron Trump another sociopath in the making

  12. Would you rather a business die or loose 224,280 lives ? …..clearly Trump puts Money before human life….

      @Raging Monk Because you have no rebuttals, no I get it. I’m fairly confident that anyone with a brain will see who’s telling the truth. 😊

    • @Brendan Letourneau There are no facts, just a bunch of FAUX , Glenn Beck BS.

    • Brendan Letourneau | October 23, 2020 at 3:15 PM | Reply

      @Raging Monk Again. No rebuttal.

      And I don’t listen to Glenn Beck πŸ˜‚

    • @Brendan Letourneau So it is just FAUX BS that they repeated from Beck. Got it.
      Ford dropped 6 cents to $8.15 today and that stock should bounce to $11 a share within 3 months. lol Thought I would help ya out as I multi task.

    • @Brendan Letourneau That which is offered without evidence can be rejected without evidence. Hitchens.

  13. Can he really believe this stuff he is spouting? Really

  14. Trump is the one that created this situation then acting like he had nothing to do with it. If he followed CDC’s safety protocol and not do everything opposite of that, we would’ve been in better situation and the economy wouldn’t have crashed as hard. This is solely on Trump’s bloody hands.

    • Brendan Letourneau | October 23, 2020 at 1:12 PM | Reply

      @Richard Courtney Fauci also knew in January what this was, and you want the president to listen to experts. Don’t play both sides of the coin. Trump listened to what he was told, they set him up. The people who came back from China were Americans…. they were quarantined and tested…lol. New York has a massive city inside of it, where people from all over the world visit. To suggest that Trump should’ve totally shut down all flow of people in and out of the country is a bit naΓ―ve. Things still have to run if you want to have a country at all. If he issued a nationally mandated response, you would’ve called him a tyrant and “literally hitler”. Yes, a federal government should allow states to address how they handle it, and if they need assistance, they can reach out (like how the military built hospitals and had ships ready to house those who were infected, but nope, into the nursing homes they go, what an intelligent idea. That accounts for a massive percentage of the deaths. Trump did several things as you listed, among others. You don’t care about the dead, if you did you’d be attacking China, as they are responsible for many more than 200,000. You are simply a parrot, projecting your insecurities. Either that or you’re one of the 50 cent army, or something akin to that.

    • Richard Courtney | October 23, 2020 at 1:59 PM | Reply

      @Brendan Letourneau What your saying is why even bother with a travel ban. Well here’s the thing if you don’t shut it all down why bother because Trump didn’t ban all of china just part. Yes fauci did say masks weren’t necessary in the beginning but as he later stated this virus was different than baby they had ever seen. Yes we would have criticized Trump because he lied about the severity of the virus from the beginning. If he said hey I just got information that this virus is very dangerous and we will have to temporarily close the borders to all countries until they get a handle on it. We won’t have had to close down our businesses, schools and so on. So yes it is Trump’s fault it got so out of hand. He panicked and only thought about the stock market not the people of this country. Do who exactly is being naive. We have almost a 3% mortality rate with this, the flu is .1% and it’s not getting better. Now Donnie is wanting to go with an unproven herd immunity theory which would require roughly 70% of the US to be infected. That’s around 221 million, now if we stay at the 2.7% rate we would lose roughly 6 million americans. You up for those numbers, I’m not. Also remember the virus doesn’t care if your from a red or blue states.

    • @Brendan Letourneau China isn’t the leader of the USA.

    • Brendan Letourneau | October 23, 2020 at 2:18 PM | Reply

      @jrch 55 That wouldn’t be the case if Trump wasn’t president.

      But that wasn’t even remotely my point and you know it. China is where the virus originated from.

    • @Brendan Letourneau Travel ban should have been broader?

  15. In Canada We have businesses and restaurants with plexiglass protecting us. It has not been an issue financially because life matters!

    • @Kevin Meiz Blah, blah, blah.

    • @Enuph Sayd Typical reply. Nothing unexpected about that. WAAAAAAAAAAa

    • @SMS A great sign of intelligence you got there. Lol πŸ˜‚
      Do better πŸ˜‰πŸ‘Œ

    • @Wisconsin Man The glass is a protected area that helps you stay with in your bubble. Each guest leaves then the person comes and cleans before next customer. It helps eliminate contamination. It is better than doing nothing. If it saves one or two it’s a win the spread is about 40 ish people then they pass it on and on.

    • @Kevin Meiz I heard that. But they had an explanation. They order shopping, food. But the people delivering the orders stayed and visited a time. That is how they became contaminated. Plexiglass is preventive and smart.

    I love this “bewildered child” voice Chumpy puts on when he’s trying to convince people of one of his multiple lies. Waves his hands from his hips, like a seal clapping for attention. PATHETIC.!!!

    Donald Duck is such a massive liar about everything he believes these lies

  18. The virus wasn’t the problem, is the leader that work for the virus is….esp being a superspeader.

  19. Its a wonderful life | October 23, 2020 at 11:40 AM | Reply

    Trump having the Covid 19 was most likely a hoax. He got a false positive test, and panicked. So he could keep downplaying Coronavirus and watch people die.

  20. The Trumpvirus has now killed 223,000 people and counting. Trump is responsible 100 %

    • It’s a global pandemic Joe. You blame Trump for all of those deaths as well?

    • @esj8341 The US has been a disgrace to the world by NOT handling Covid well AT ALL…. You tell me who should accept responsibility

    • @Joe Strummer Not sure what you mean by handle well. Biden proposed policy almost identical to Trump’s with the exception of the national mask mandate which more likely than would be unconstitutional.

    • Patience Isaac | October 23, 2020 at 8:56 PM | Reply

      @esj8341 Joe Biden isn’t the president, yet! All this covid failure is on Trump and his incompetence and his lies!

    • @Patience Isaac Biden’s covid plan is a copy of Trump’s with the exception of the national mask mandate, Issac.
