  1. Donald Trump has 15 days of Presidential immunity left.

  2. This coming from the guy who made a fake Time Magazine Man of the Year cover and put it on display. 😅😂🤣

    • Ro G : And the guy who posted fake inaguration photos. And the guy who posted a pic of himself as a superhero after Putin posted one of himself as a shirtless gladiator 😂

    During trump´s ugly phone call to Georgia, claiming them to “find” near 12.000
    more votes for him, 120 Americans died from COVID-19 but trump did not care at all…

    • Very true.
      BTW: 11,780…. he was very specific in his fraud attempt.

    • Exactly

      As long as it doesn’t affect trump personally, it doesn’t really exist.

      If I’m recalling what I heard Trump say in that phone call correctly, he stated at least once, if not more, that the 11,780 votes he’s demanding be found equals one more vote then he needs to win in Georgia. It makes me wonder how many more phone calls Trump has made to demand that one more vote then necessary be “found” for him. To hear Trump tell it, he is trying to claim he won all the states, including states like California where we would NEVER vote to hand the likes of Trump rule over us. Yes, I know that some parts of California lean very Republican. But they are not a substantial part of the state’s voting population.

    • But were any of those 120 Donnie Johnny Trump? No? No probs then…bring on the next grift!

    He took the Science Quiz the Teacher handed back with a “D” on it, and changed it to “B+”. Her making book still says D, history will always say D. The CDC Death Total Graph = The Weather Service Storm Track Map of The Southeast US/Atlantic Region last Hurricane Season. This is Trump Rewiting Reality with his infamous Sharpie Pen.

    Did the Trump administration not take over collating the death figures some time ago, so who is manipulating them?

    • Yes exactly. If the numbers are off, its trumps fault

    • You answered your own question.

    • @nosuchthing8 Yeah, I heard he put two of his goons in the CDC to collect & check the data first before released, so if anything its higher I thought, but lower? also it did go through Trumps goons, so they got it wrong. Although if it is lower its good news, but it still doesn’t change the fact its a Pandemic, so Im not sure why there talking about this bs for?

    • @Cole08 excellent points, yes. You forget how a right wingers mind works. If you repeat something often enough, they simply dont CARE about the truth or facts anymore.

      You can point out the CDC is collating all this data, but they cant get the accusation out if their heads.

      The best way to describe it is to imagine layers and layers of paint and much in a home. Scraping off the first layer of pain wont work.

      They need some serious deprogramming.

    • @Laughing Dog it was sarcasm. You too?

  6. I am so sick of Donald Trump making accusations without providing a shred of proof the s*** getting annoying guys

      @Screwygirl You think some of them are finally starting to wake up?

    • @The Insane Shecklador I have to believe some of them are. I think that some of those 74 million are just hard-core Republicans at heart and just didn’t want to vote for a Democrat. Now, some of them are regretting their decision.

      I really really hope that is what it was… There can’t be 74 million brain-dead cultists in our country… please?

      @Screwygirl I hope you’re right. I’m not entirely convinced but I am hopeful.

    • @The Insane Shecklador I believe some of those 74 million, only voted for him because they thought it was good for them to pay less taxes. What they don’t understand is when the people making billions pay no taxes, there is a budget deficit.
      Deficit + pandemic = BONED

      @Screwygirl I’d love to believe this

  7. Dr. Celine Gounder makes some strong arguments — comprehensive, reasonable and well thought out. I am glad that she was brought on to President-elect Joe Biden’s COVID-19 task force. Good interview.

  8. This is the FINAL COUNT DOWN! 16 more days until trump, the tyrant, is out of office! Yay!

  9. Thank you for showing the truth and facts. Everyone realize it’s going to get Worse. We are going to hit close to 5,50,000 deaths..this is trump’s Plan. Half a million LIVES! He is liable

  10. GEORGIA VOTE WARNOCK x OSSOFF . God bless America and Democracy!

  11. Trump can take a Diamond like the Economy he was given by Obama and turn it into a pollution increasing lump of coal.To some people that is an accomplishment I think.

  12. why is January 20 taking too long?

  13. Sarah Palin’s version of “Death Panel” GOP style.

    Ok…you don’t wear a mask and social distance…you don’t get vaccinated, you get no bed in a hospital…

    For claiming the CDC is lying about the covid body count, we award him not the Medal of Freedom, but the Golden Masculine Toilet.

  16. Trump is a very dangerous man. Congress should have had this “loose cannon” removed, from his position, long ago.

      They tried. The Senate refused to convict him.

  17. Finally, we will get a sane national response to COVID, a year too late, 400,000 dead Americans too late.

    • Thanks to Diaper Don who told his base it was a hoax the Democrats cooked up to make him look bad!! 352,000 deaths later..yeah right, a hoax! :-/

  18. *** One Coup over the Cuckoo’s nest ***

    In this final chapter we see Nurse Ratched order Diaper Don’s lobotomy that he’s been in desperate need of for the past 4 years, then there was peace in the valley Amen

  19. Just how far will ordinary Americans let agent orange go in destroying them?

    Delaying AstraZeneca approval equals more deaths and illness. This is an emergency situation , the cost benefit of early approval is a no brainer.
