    If covid19 could talk this is what it would be saying .

    COVID-19: “Perhaps I didn’t make myself clear the first time, so let me
    try again. I am immune to Trump’s lies and gaslighting. Ignorance and
    misinformation from Trump and Fox only makes me stronger. I can’t be
    defeated with phony patriotism, guns, flag waving, or denial. I can’t be
    defeated with magic, because I am real, and magic is not. I can only be
    defeated with science, facts, maturity, unselfishness, and common
    sense. I am nothing like the flu, but the flu is a fan of mine, and it
    wants to be like me when it grows up. Trying to ignore me won’t save
    you. I can’t be defeated with thoughts and prayers, so going to places
    of worship won’t save you. You may not be interested in me, but I am
    obsessed with you. Currently there is no vaccine for me, and that’s the
    problem. I recognize no one’s authority. Selfish ignorant people like
    Trump and his cult are the wind beneath my wings, they give me life. I
    may have lost some strength in other countries, but thanks to Trump,
    America is making me great again.”

    DjT** has never been faithful to anyone or country but instead has been  ‘always corrupt’ and ‘always a traitor’ for his benefit at the expense of many including friends, family, supporters and political enablers.

    Vote and evict!

    Only about 330 million people left to get it. Maybe somebody should tell the clown this will not happen while he is president.

  4. That is what you get for ignoring WHO advice. American blaming culture of politics have cause Americans to lose lives.

      If Trump had taken Covid, seriously instead of calling it a Hoax, we’d be in a much better position, Europe has banned American travellers and aren’t allowing travel to the US, because they’ve almost beaten it & don’t want people bringing it into their countries again. Trump’s Base just assumed it was all over because he & the Republican Senators & Governors said that everything was back to normal & it’s not, that’s what we get from a Fake President and the Hoax Senators #Traitor45ForPrison2020 #WhinyBitch #BunkerBitchMustgo

    • Sandra MOORE | July 2, 2020 at 7:28 PM | Reply

      It certainly astounds me how the Trump administration or anyone for that matter politizises a pandemic which is a serious health threat. One would have to be alive to vote wouldn’t they???

    • Sandra MOORE | July 2, 2020 at 7:31 PM | Reply

      @Kev Warriner I don’t want Americans in my country!!

    • Elizabeth notthe queen | July 2, 2020 at 7:55 PM | Reply

      @Sandra MOORE They’re all crazy. It’s also a fascist of a plan for trump to be a dictator. The lies, deflection,projection, chaos ,division, breaking the down the country from within,demonizing the media, alienating allies, isolation of our country from others. It’s all about power and control. Hitler was his idol and putin bought his presidency. We are going to win nonetheless because we are stronger. Just vote blue straight through !

    • Who ignored WHO advice? Don’t believe MSNBS (sic)

  5. Schools can’t even manage head lice let alone a pandemic super germ 🤦

      Sad but true

    • Most schools are decades old. They lack the technology and structure to permit distancing.

    • It would take all sorts of cooperation, creativity, and investment. Alternating half kids in the morning, the other half in the afternoon. Child-size masks. Plexiglass barriers between each desk. Enough materials so no sharing is required. Extra staff to guide or take aside kids who cannot understand/follow the new expectations. Extra staff to clean between shifts. But ONLY after infection rates have levelled off and there is a major stockpile of tests ready to go at each location.

    • Elizabeth notthe queen | July 2, 2020 at 8:26 PM | Reply

      @mg82 Okay , what do you propose as a plan so it can be done. How do you keep masks on kids or have them social distance . Oh, maybe cages 6 ft apart. You people don’t go for critical thinking do you since you throw out words with no action behind them .

    • Elizabeth notthe queen I’m not an architect, engineer or virologist. Hopefully people in charge can get educated opinions and plans of action from experts.

  6. I Don’t want Any Children, my Children, your Children out there getting this Virus, it’s the Adults Responsibility, to Make sure they are safe.

    • Elizabeth notthe queen | July 2, 2020 at 3:38 PM | Reply

      @Jock Young I agree but try getting kids to keep masks on is swimming against the current , especially primary grade students

    • Elizabeth notthe queen | July 2, 2020 at 3:41 PM | Reply

      @bzdtemp It has to be at a time the are no new cases .

    • @Jock Young In a Healthy Environment yes, but in this Environment, Not Even the Experts are sure.

    • Unfortunately many have abdicated or never achieved their adult status.The original idea of liberal democracy was that people were educated to think critically.

    • Cyrene the Cat | July 2, 2020 at 9:09 PM | Reply

      @bzdtemp Good luck getting Americans to take advice from other countries who know what they are doing. They think this is only about them.

  7. Trump’s mental and moral decline will accelerate and get worse. He won’t get better.

    • I’m wondering if he should be tested for syphilis, he is acting like someone who is stage 3.

    • Marlene Sollgruber | July 2, 2020 at 6:04 PM | Reply

      MVVpro it’s not only teachers that are in danger! Children don’t on a whole experience dangerous symptoms! There are children who have died of the virus! And I actually would like to know where you get the facts that children or younger people can’t spread the virus?

      Stage 3, IE: Neural Syphilis and Alzheimer’s are pretty much identical symptoms with totally different causes, his father passed away in 1999 after a 6 year battle with Alzheimer’s.

  8. There’s a lag time from infection to death. Plus, as soon as the hospitals are full deaths will explode, just like in NY.

    • Lead Gen Magic | July 2, 2020 at 1:45 PM | Reply

      But, Cuomo showed True Leadership and how it is done to DOMINATE and Control the pandemic. The other Governors should be following his example.

    • When the hospitals are full that is the idea of a pandemic. Cuomo did do a good job. we did have a superspreader here in Ny. I have no problem wearing a mask. My friend got oneoof those shields so you don’t touch your face. It helps.

    • @Lead Gen Magic See how he go the others govs together and work in unison that is what impeached trumpee should have done.

  9. We desperately need a national policy to deal with this virus. It is insane to go out in pubic without a mask never mind go to restaurants and bars. Trump and his congressional supporters literally have American citizens deaths on their hands. Vote them out and stop this madness.

    • SheilaghmBrosky Brosky | July 2, 2020 at 11:08 AM | Reply

      Time for that has passed.

    • Masks do nothing to stop a virus.. nothing can stop it unless you wanna be bubble boy.. The best course of action is for everyone to get this “flu” and move on with our lives.. There’s an agenda being played out and it has nothing to do with saving lives…

    • Barbara Mulvaney | July 2, 2020 at 7:27 PM | Reply

      @No Way Without people FAITHFULLY wearing masks when in public places with others, the virus will NEVER go away. It is not chicken pox. People will get sick over and over again. Even one infection usually leaves serious permanent damage and suffering. They found that with SARS, and are finding it with CV 19. The 2 are so closely related that Covid 19 is considered a version of the SARS group, and has SARS in its full name. Just google post SARS syndrome, and you will see what it’s like to have had it. Permanent lung and heart disease is no picnic, and on a huge scale it could cripple the economy. I mean just the post Covid stuff. But a permanent state of active disease circling around, over and over, would be worse than catastrophic!

      While the American population does need culling, the ones who will die from an ongoingly diseased country will be heavily weighted towards the idiots who can’t be bothered to be safe, Trumpanzees, which is a good thing. But how do you think the rest of the world will treat a country like that? Especially seeing the US was already heartily disliked by many to begin with, and Trump is literally hated worldwide. Americans are already excluded from travel to Europe, while Canada is not. Though the US and Canada have wisely chosen to exclude each other, for now.

      Hospitals are already at capacity in places, so those that can’t be treated will die. Bodies that can’t can’t be dealt with fast enough will pile up. The health care situation will become an even worse crisis by far. There will be so many welfare claimants that the system won’t be able to cope. Unemployment insurance, Obamacare, even employer based health insurance, which is already failing spectacularly, will be stressed past its limit.

      I know it’s not in rightists’ natures to think things through, and although there are many other ways in which it would be catastrophic, I haven’t got all day to sit here telling them to you. It should suffice to say that your ideas would be disastrous to everyone, the country, and to you personally. It’s a shame that you are too stupid to see the obvious. Either that or you are a Russian troll being paid to write absurd garbage on social media.

      The economy would suffer so much that it can’t even be described. It would take all day for a whole team of economists.

      But you probably don’t believe in them either. Or science, or vaccines, or that the world is round. I supposed you think that you are protected because “Ahm covered in Jesus’s bluud. It cain’t get me.”

      The US is the ONLY developed country in the whole world that has failed to get Covid under control. One more reason why it is a laughing stock to everyone else.

      It’s always been that right wingers lived in a fairy tale where complicated problems could be solved, they think, by the simplest solutions. This mentality is being proven, more conclusively than ever, to be false. You people need to wake up to reality for once in your lives.

    • @Barbara Mulvaney Watching Fauci spout lies doesn’t make you an expert… Why would you believe anything you are being told..?Especially from MSNBC … First we were told from the CDC that masks weren’t necessary because they wanted healthcare workers to have enough.. Now we’re being told that a cloth covering like a bandana is fine.. Why wasn’t it fine 5 months ago? ?… ..Masks are only a symbol of compliance and a precursor to forced vaccinations and the end of humanity as we know it.. There are many health institutions that say healthy individuals SHOULD NOT BE wearing masks.. Countries all over the world including Canada are allowing their kids to resume normal studies without covering their faces.. Again.. there is an agenda and it has nothing to do with saving your life…

  10. Trump: “The virus will just go away, I hope so”. Time for the military to exert LAW AND ORDER and ARREST Trump for 2nd degree murder.

  11. Why are kids being used as Guinea pigs, why is this a conceivable thought without a vaccine?

    • @Doina Campean we’re talking about masks.. and their inefficiency at stopping a VIRUS.. If I did catch this “virus” and I felt my life was in danger I’d take my chances with HCQ.. Ya know that proven drug that surgeons and doctors are taking… I’m not covering my face And f*** your vaccines…


    • Elizabeth notthe queen | July 2, 2020 at 8:38 PM | Reply

      @No Way I don’t know where you live but everyone needs to be wearing masks. Any face covering protects you from me if I’m not aware I’m sick ,it’s called respecting other people’s health as well as your own. Well it comes down to this, either you’re a trumper /troll or vile proud boy . Face coverings impede the drops from your nose or mouth from spreading . Do the world a favor and don’t go for help if you get it.

      It’s deplorable to even think about.

    • @Elizabeth notthe queen I don’t know you but you sound like a very small petty shrew that believes everything you’re told just because it sounds official.. It’s very simple if you’re afraid wear a mask until you get hypoxia.. Or just stay 6 feet away from others ..BUT DO NOT project your fears or your inability to think for yourself onto others…
      NO MASKS

    • It’s a sacrifice to the Great God Mammon.

  12. When talking about opening schools, all that gets said is “kids are less susceptible.” Why does everyone seem to forget that they have TEACHERS? I read that some 30% of teachers are over 60 years old, too. Kids can’t stay in school if all their teachers get sick.

    • Cyrene the Cat | July 2, 2020 at 8:45 PM | Reply

      @BrOwN AnGeL There are far less stupid people in the world than you think there are. Most parents will want their children to get the vaccine. Although this is America you are talking about…

    • Cyrene the Cat | July 2, 2020 at 8:54 PM | Reply

      @Lilac Lizard Successful countries have worn masks. That’s why it is being contained. Asymptomatic people DO spread the virus. There’s a report just today of a man who died after catching from an asymptomatic individual. I sure hope you’re not putting anyone at risk with your misinformation.

    • Cyrene the Cat | July 2, 2020 at 8:55 PM | Reply

      @We are all connected How do kids homeschool with working parents?

    • All NZ and Australian schools are open.

    • Lilac Lizard

      Is the USA not doing virtual classrooms? Why not? We have been doing that in Canada since March when we closed down and you are not correct about children not transmitting it. They will share it and bring it home to mom, dad and gramma. Also there are deaths in children, especially those with other conditions AND we now know that some children will get toxic shock syndrome or Kawasaki disease. It’s not a free ride for kids and their families. In countries where the virus is under control, playgrounds and schools can be slowly reopened. But it’s not looking good in the USA.

    Where are the so-called Christians not calling for self control? Why are th airlines packing planes going all over spreading the virus again? Why is Bigly educated Trump telling his base to be warriors without hazard pay? Why? Bc they actually don’t care about people and their silence is an act of violence, non pro life, and selfish.

  14. A lot of children have compromised immune systems. Those kids and the obese kids and children living in poverty are going to be huge problems. Also, these kids will be bringing the virus home to the parents.

      I wouldn’t take the risk because this virus has already mutated resulting in being better to infect the cells that it attacks. What will the next mutations going to be able to do ?

  17. “No Mr President, I couldn’t hear the full conversation, but Ghislaine certainly mentioned your name” 🤣

  18. Forget about this school year . That’s what we did in Canada, starting up in Sept. To a totally different system. Yet to be announced.
