    This pandemic should show all Doctors, nurses and all emergency workers that Trump is not a President that has them in a best interest. Americans needs a President who cares for ALL AMERICANS AND JUST THE RICH 1%.

    • Trump will definitely be re-elected. 👈

      THE WORLD needs an American president that’s competent and capable. Amazing how we litterally went from one of the best Presidents ever to the absolute worst

      @William H Don’t be so pessimistic

    • @ron Poirier Every time trickledown economics has been tried, the money always trickles up. Republicans have called it trickledown economics, to fool the average person into believing their hoax. Then they go home and laugh at the gullible people, that believe their lies.

      Except many doctors and nurses have been laid off.

    At 13:40 as of 7/5/20 British time, US deaths stand at 74,810.
    Trump and his GOP supporters do not care.
    And yet 40% plus support them.

  3. Things are only getting worse, and yet we’re talking about re-opening. Just goes to show you that we’re nothing more than disposable labor to this administration. They would rather risk our lives than see the Dow sink 3%. It’s all about the money when it comes to Republicans, and the “personal responsibility” mantra is a sham, since they never want to be responsible for anything when things go wrong.

    Doctors should ask patients their political affiliation and administer Clorox accordingly.

      ​@Mark bodman another win,win .. Trump was right again.!!! The solution is a technique known as lung lavage, or lung washing, to flush the surfactant build-up from the lungs. Clinicians insert twin endotracheal tubes into the lungs while the patient is under anesthesia. They stream saline into one while the other receives oxygen to keep the patient breathing…

      @David Hale Hey dopey. Define “fascist”. I’m sure you can’t. If you could you’d realize how stupid you sound.

    • @Ron Wuerch lol, the Irony.
      I’d agree with you but then we’d both be wrong, but to be fair if you try hard enough on what they’ve done you can say that both are faulty.

  5. You don’t have an economy when most of your workers are ill or dying from an extremely contagious disease. We know really nothing about Covid 19.

      IT is not rocket science, the slope of the curves are POSITIVE.
      APRIL 30, 2020 COVID-19
      60,000 dead
      30 million no job
      SO EXPECT 125,000 end of May
      SO EXPECT 185,000 end of June
      ALL thanks to the sociopath in the white house & GOP.

    • james morton why don’t you try and get updated info.
      Cuomo press conference yesterday his charts showed that the numbers are going down.
      Plus those charts showed that 66% of cases came from people who stayed home. Another 39% came from people who were unemployed and stayed home.
      So with that data staying home and being unemployed at home infected and caused more deaths.

  10. Notice all the countries battling this virus successfully ALL have a free National Health Service. Americans have been bought a lie about universal healthcare, by rich Pharmaceutical companies.

    • @myko freder I’m very suspicious of the Florida numbers, given our number of elderly, as well as foreign tourists prior to the outbreak. The GOP governor is a dedicated Trump soldier.

      Mark bodman exactly, that’s the saddest part; americans not even understanding that their biggest issue is the absence of a universal healthcare system..

    To All: Do NOT cross state lines this summer to visit friends and extended family members. This virus is NOT over.

    • Jesus7es7Dios7 | May 9, 2020 at 3:28 AM | Reply

      so would it be over by September? by saying “over” does it mean that from the 1 plus million infected (even the ones that are recovering) could not infect others?… where’s the line drawn… what date is that line drawn? September 30?… October 30?… November 30?… so like by november NO ONE WILL BE INFECTED?…. Im beginning to think that this virus will not die…. the fact that people are getting infected in such a fast and alarming rate tells me alot… what do you think?

    • Jesus7es7Dios7 | May 9, 2020 at 3:30 AM | Reply

      @Mark bodman but mark, at what degree fahrenheit does this virus dies?…. 100 degrees? 120 degrees? 150 degrees? does the virus die at 110 degrees… OR CAN IT SURVIVE…

    • Mark bodman | May 9, 2020 at 8:01 AM | Reply

      @Jesus7es7Dios7 simple answer. When is flu season?? It always comes around once a year. Need a hint?

    • Mark bodman | May 9, 2020 at 8:05 AM | Reply

      @Jesus7es7Dios7 will it come back next flu season. Odds are yes, but as we build natural immuntity less die, more research into treatment.
      When influenza flu virus was introduced we lost 100 million people. Now average 60k a year.

    • Jesus7es7Dios7 | May 9, 2020 at 11:24 AM | Reply

      @Mark bodman So like… like.. like… to build natural immunity you have to get infected in the first place.. RIGHT? ….and the only way for you to DEVELOP the immunity is if YOU DON’T DIE WHEN YOU CONTRACT THE INFECTION… RIGHT? So, in other words, and I beg that you correct me, FIRST WHOLE BUNCH OF PEOPLE HAVE TO DIE BEFORE THE STRONGEST WOULD SURVIVE..

  12. Jens Rasmussen | May 7, 2020 at 8:59 AM | Reply

    Solution: Give Trump 5% at the order off tests. Then he’ll accepting that all be tested twice 🙈

    • The orange dodo will just buy up the tests and store them so they can’t be used. He’s finding killing people thrilling.

  14. After seeing the protests and the gunnuts that were toting guns around in a threatening manner as they wore their costumes and camo, I say let those people go out and do whatever they want to do. If people like that die, then they die. Those clowns do more to hurt law abiding citizens who are gun owners, than anything. It was pretty sickening to see those clowns at these protests.

    • I would agree with you if a state can close border to other states.

  15. Americans are experts in voting against their own needs. America needs universal healthcare and real leadership… Badly.

    • Tidbit really? So Feinstein dumping 9 million in stock (which how does a senator accumulate without stealing in the first place?) A couple days the virus hit doesn’t raise an eyebrow huh?

    • @Rob Ceriani Look moron, when a single visit to the Hospital can set you back 10’s of thousands of dollars, people just don’t go in, they die at home. And in Colorado people are refused healthcare all the time because they cannot pay. In the US a hospital must only give care if the person would die without it, and then they bill the person anyway and hound them unless they declare bankruptcy. It completely destroys families on the regular, and is a pathetic system. Why not pay for universal healthcare, it covers everyone and is 1/3 of the price!

      @Tidbit 1st- have I been disrespectful towards you? No. Why not extend that same respect? 2nd- I asked you to site 1 story on someone being denied healthcare. Surely something like that would make the news! You can do it. I have faith in you

      Social engineering here we come plus extermination.

  19. Locking up everyone in their homes; keeping people from their jobs while they quickly go broke; and keeping children and college students out of school is no kind of great solution. Perhaps it was needed to ‘flatten the curve” and that is debatable (see Sweden). Here IS a great solution! Get busy confirming the safety and efficacy of the French study (properly dosed hydroxychloroquine + a properly dosed zinc supplement daily + Z-Pak), administered under a physician’s care, as AN EARLY-STAGE treatment protocol. A fairly done clinical trial with, shall we say, 4,000 +- patients, administered to a high scientific and academic standard, peer reviewed by a panel of respected doctors not biased to the vaccine industry, is required. We have had time to complete this study already. But this study has not been done.Weakly supported, junk studies have been done and heavily pushed by MSM. The French did a study of this type, over a month ago. Why can’t WE produce a study?
