    It is what it isn’t. And, what it isn’t is a comprehensive, competent, and caring COVID-19 response.

      Will Be Jamming …as soon as you wrote โ€œcaringโ€ that eliminated Trump.

      @I HACKED YOUTUBE_. Saw you copy paste the same thing in the same post under two different fake accounts. How goes it in Ghana?

    • @Earnest T Bass no detailed attack necessary. I live in the EU, just enjoyed my summer vacation, school started today, my corona test was free, results came back in 19h, the doc came to my place, the results were put online ( via an anonymous code I was given), the economy came back on smoothly, we lost hardly any jobs, the federal government took over the payments of workers for a while, little pick up for the food banks and most importantly HARDLY ANY UNNECESSARY LOSS OF LIVE. The stats show which countries did the right thing, so ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™‚๏ธ…
      My only question: why is defending Trump (or criticism of him) more important to Americans than keeping ur fellow citizens as safe as possible in this horrible times?
      Take care ya’ll ๐Ÿ€….

    tRump lies are costing lives…reckless endangerment, negligent homicide?

  3. Its devastating that these debates over the obvious only happen in the US, Brazil, Russia and other assorted autocracies. At least there is still free press in the US. For now.

  4. We need to focus on our safety for the children and the Adults Trump clearly doesnโ€™t care.

      imagine: one day a young child comes home from school and learns, perhaps from his aunt or uncle, that his parents have been taken to hospital this morning after a corona test. Now the child is also being tested. Corona too.
      The child thinks: Maybe he infected his own parents? Will the parents die because of him?
      What does that do to this child?

      I’ve posted this a few times!
      Please share. I want EVERYONE with cognitive skills better than Trump’s to remember those 5 words in that order.
      Easy enough right?

  6. Eastern Woods | August 6, 2020 at 8:52 AM | Reply

    It’s because Trump was convinced that it’s about Blue states

  7. Donald, go away !!

  8. Trump: “I am immune, and I am a child.”

      If he thought that he would stop all testing of the people around him in or outside the White House to bring the the number of new cases down.

  9. Trump is immune to intelligence.

      @Larry Scary …
      Yes, they marched. But they didn’t take over a government building to intimidate lawmakers and get away with it. I’m sure had they tried the response from “the authorities” would been much more different.
      Nice try Skippy, but, there is no comparison.

    • @Valentin Caballero are you joking? They took over a government building in Seattle and tried to burn down the government building in Portland several times

    • Valentin Caballero | August 6, 2020 at 5:12 PM | Reply

      @Larry Scary …
      …and then you saw the difference in response from the authorities. And they didn’t even carry M4’s. And I imagine you saw the response to the marchers in DC just for a photo ok. And they neither carried M16, nor M4, nor took over the capital building.
      I’ll assume then, as you implied, that the ‘rightwing liberate the states’ crowd should had been dealt in the same violent manner the ‘other’ marchers/protesters are being dealt with.
      But do not lose sight of their differences:
      One group of marchers were doing to bring attention to the abuses they suffer from police.
      The other group did it at the behest of Trump to further a political agenda he believed would be advantageous to him even if meant killing thousands from a disease we have not yet figured out the cure for it.
      Yes, one marched out of ignorance.
      The other marched out of desperation for justice.

    • @Bono Budju Personally, I don’t think that the way that coronavirus has crystalized Trump’s incompetence was an accident. In this life, I’ve found that there’s a reason for everything. Trump earned what’s happening to him now. Every time that he hurt someone in order to benefit himself. Every time that he scammed someone, another brick was laid. Trump crafted his own retribution and he won’t escape it.

    • @Cynna1065 ๐Ÿ’ฏthere’s no ridiculing or deriding Coronavirus with a tweet. Good luck to you and your family and stay safe and vote ๐ŸŒŠacross the board and in numbers never seen before, your life, America and the economy literally depends on it.

  10. Conservatives are not politicians you want in leadership during a healthcare crisis.

    • Otto Mulberry | August 6, 2020 at 12:01 PM | Reply

      No one can predict a health crisis. If what you say is true, they shouldn’t be politicians ever, cause who knows when another crisis will happen?

    • @Otto Mulberry Well not saying or doing anything to STOP the asshat in office from getting rid of every anti-pandemic team that was already in place didn’t help. Here we are now…..Would have been a good start,right?

    • @Otto Mulberry The next crisis in November 3, 2020

    • JC Andrijeski | August 8, 2020 at 1:34 PM | Reply

      Try ANY crisis. They’ll just use it as a distraction to steal anything they can get their corrupt, traitorous hands on.

    • JC Andrijeski | August 8, 2020 at 1:36 PM | Reply

      @Otto Mulberry Or maybe, just maybe, we’ve had other near-crises that never turned into full-blown crises because we had competent leadership in the WH? (H1N1, SARS, ebola…)

    “89 days left until selection”! The “go away” will be in January. [cheers]

  12. Be vigilant and stay safe ppl. Protect your family and friends by using mask,wash hand and distancing. Ignore Trump and listen to Scientist only !

    • Ignore Republicans

    • But I can’t riot anymore?

    • @Larry Scary If you are suicidal,pls go ahead and invite Trump too!

      Amen, amen, amen!! I pray for this situation on a daily basis. Hoping that they have a vaccine very soon! So we can get back to some sense of normalcy as soon as possible!!! I want my kids back in school too, but I’m not going to compromise their health or possibly even their lives! No way! I’m wishing everyone well and safety to all of you!!

    Twitter Facebook and all other media should not allow Trump to be posting misinformation full stop. Nothing he says is true it is either a barefaced lie or misleading.

    • Media shouldn’t have to fact check trump. Why not tell bomb in a airport no one is holding his criminally responsible, your personality responsible for your actions, Nuremberg trial

    And thatโ€™s the truth they are not immune to Covd 19 my little twin cousins have it and they are 10 months old and gave it to their grandmother who is 64 because she was helping to are for them now sheโ€™s fighting and gasping for life so there you have donโ€™t be fooled.

    • I’m so sorry. Families are having to deal with sickness, economic distress, and potential loss of a roof over their heads, all at once. It’s a disgrace that while all of that is happening, the government is still gridlocked and undecided about how to deal with the root cause of it all — the coronavirus.

      I hope that the babies get better soon and that their grandma pulls through.

    It is time that people in most states, from the governor down, become selectively Deaf to the wants and demands of the president. He is not concerned with the average citizen or their children so we have to be.

  16. KesselRunner606 | August 6, 2020 at 9:28 AM | Reply

    Anther matter that concerns me is that, as this is the *novel* corona virus, we still don’t know the potential long term effects contracting this virus may have on young children as they grow older. It could very well be that in 10-20 years we will have to deal with Covid Kid Syndrome, where those who contracted the virus as children (what Trump condescendingly calls “get the sniffles”) grow up more vulnerable to severe respiratory illnesses and disease.

    This virus is not going to just “Go Away.” Viruses simply do *not* do that. FFS we’re still dealing with the Black Death in some parts of the world.

    I wouldn’t mind Trump being evil or simply indifferent. It’s F##king infuriating that Western Democracy is under threat from someone who is thick as *SH**#T**!*

    • Preach!!!!

    • Edison Moore | August 6, 2020 at 2:55 PM | Reply

      We haven’t seen the hospitalization of kids yet, but it has happened in every country that failed to contain the virus. UK, Spain. France and Italy all reported increase in kids in the hospital about 2–3 months in. NY started to report these findings also. I wish we could just learn from our mistakes. We will not see the consequences of opening schools for another 2-3 weeks.. There’s going to be victory laps and praise after this first week, but we will not know yet.

  17. I never listen to my politician for medical advice.

  18. Southvalleyfox | August 6, 2020 at 10:11 AM | Reply

    They keep warning us, but everybody who needs to see this is watching FOX

  19. So while Trump is putting out flames and embers he wants children to go to school in a burning building.

    Don, you may desire to “risk” your political “fate” using this “logic,” however, we don’t want to risk our children’s lives on it. Go away, Don!
