    Why have the dr there if Trump won’t let him answer any questions. Unbelievable

    • Because he wants to promote an untested drug that he has personal investments in. He does’t want the dr telling the truth and hurting his financial gain.

    • Trump is the stable genius remember no matter how many doctors are present…

    • I think Trump had the Virus was treated with it by perhaps by people who know, Dr. FAUCI…now big #45 mouth wont shut up about it!

      @RFI-Crypto Lab what flavor was the cool side?

    • @Russian Bot Why of course I don’t get my news only from Fox News, as some of you are. The point being, is that if Trump took it more seriously from the beginning, none of this insanity would have happened.

      @Tyler You can’t spell or construct a coherent sentence(FACT). Dumphs “wife” wouldn’t touch him with a ten-foot pole.(FACT).

    • @Tyler oh yeah and his beautiful wife won’t even hold his hand in public and does not sleep in his bed or even stay with him in the Whitehouse. So it seems like he just pays her for the image she brings. She is waiting for him to die so she will be free and rich and will have her whole life ahead of her. I don’t blame her one bit. She gives dumb Donald a taste of his own bitter medicine 😅

    • Tyler 🙄 melania “be best” trump is just another blind fool on trump’s payroll

    • Those imbeciles promoting an anti-malarial for a novel virus is as about as smart as thinking vinegar will cure your piles…

    Please don’t listen to Trump!

    • Tara J. Fitzgerald Don’t be such a mindless hater

    • @FatherLucid says the Trump supporter. Trump appealed to the hate and xenophobia of the uneducated. Dont be such a hypocrite.

    • Tara J. Fitzgerald I do, you do not have any idea on how our country gets run! I like to how long you can live without a job to keep a roof over you and your families head, and food on your table, pay the bills that keep you lights on any the gas company to heat your house and cook your food and the village to serve your town and keeps the water pumped to your house!

    • Don’t worry, I don’t.

    Already almost 1000 new deaths today in america, and its mid day.

    • nosuchthing8 | April 7, 2020 at 3:19 AM | Reply

      @s bright it’s an exponential growth that has just started.

    • Mike McGarrity | April 7, 2020 at 8:26 AM | Reply

      nosuchthing8 Good Luck to You. Once shorter Term (3 Days) Projections have an accuracy within 10% of Estimates, we may have 1 Week Projections with an accuracy rate of 50% to actuals. “A big Deal” is the most accurate way to describe it now. Once an Antibody Test is given to a large enough group of People we will know much more of the Death Rate which I believe will go down greatly. People with multiple other Conditions such as Heart Failure and advanced Age are taking the brunt of it. Northern Italy had one of the highest Median Ages on Earth is an example. Deaths are dropping quickly as the Vulnerable Host population has declined.

      s bright Thunderstorm here this morning. No reports of Mass Electrocutions. Duck and Cover must be working.

    • 😭🤒

    • Mike McGarrity You are correct about all the projections being way off! The “hoax” is the media scaring gullible people into a frenzy and blaming it on Trump at the same time.

      As inaccurate as the global warming, now conveniently known as climate change, projections are and have been, the projections on this china virus are even worse! And it’s the same 1world govt dreamers behind it all.

      But the point in all of this has nothing to do with getting projections right. It’s about the 2020 election and the depths Trumps opposition will go to if they think it will hurt his chances of winning again.

      Crazy to think how many people forgot the dems were busy trying to impeach Trump over nothing when this started. They forgot about Pelosi encouraging people to go out into crowds and not freak out. They forgot about Trump saving lives with the travel ban that all dems screamed xenophobic at! They forgot about all the democrats wanting open boarders right before all this started.

      He may be using it, some reports suggest it works best early on when the virtual load is low. It facilitates zinc entering cells to inhibit viral reproduction. Giving the innate immune system time to mount a defence. Soldiers taking it for prolonged periods have reported negative side effects.

      He has been pushing this drug right from the beginning which is suspicious in itself. Why!! His family company and coherts either have massive amounts he wants to sell to FEMA or bought shares. All because he heard good things about it from someone.

    • Katie Hettinger | April 6, 2020 at 6:58 PM | Reply

      @Elvena Mattson Trump likes to make up made-for-tv scenarios and a magic bullet drug fits his story line; now he has given up the divine intervention line.

    Trump is just helping out his friends in the Pharmaceutical industry. He’s promoting it like any other product.. Like Kellyanne promoted Ivanka’s handbags.

      Never Again a cure? Do you understand diseases at all? They are working on treatments and vaccines. You can’t cure this, you can only treat it. The best thing to do is prevent contracting the virus in the first place by developing a vaccination.

    • SweJ should have ZERO influence in Western nations. RetliH, the Romans, the Arabs, the various other Europeans, etc were right all along about these people. They are dangerous, these sweJ and they are the enemy.

      Obama let 17000 AMERICANS die with the Swine flu. If he would have been president the 500,000 deaths originally predicted would already be in the books. Had it not been for poor leadership in New York the death toll would be lower. Terrible governor and mayor they are till NYer to go out to dinner and see a show as late as March 11 that’s why so many people are dead in New York

  10. Trump is overbearing and extremely dangerous. And he appears loathe those better than him.

    He is also very insecure and desperately unpredictable.

      @Farmer Bob His base is old, stupid and the most vulnerable to dying from the disease. If that was his plan he should have waited until after the election.

    • Olivia Love Worthy, while it wouldn’t surprise me, do you have a reference you can cite? It should be insider trading at least, IMO. I didn’t find anything specific on the web. Thank you and stay safe.

  14. Get out of the way, captain Bonespurs, and let the people who can actually save lives speak!

    • @Mark Herbert o I forgot. I stand corrected. He’s so smart I wonder why he couldn’t cure his own bonespurs.

    • @ms 3533 ha ha ha! He’s currently getting the highest ratings ever in his entire term and he’s barely breaking 50%. His personal best. Lol

    • Yes, get out of the way and let the Dr. Fauci who wants to wait for half a year or 2 before he finally understands what the 1000s of recovered covid patients already know about HCQ.

    Every health official: “Wear a mask in public to protect yourself and others.”

    Trump: “This is voluntary. I don’t think I’m going to be doing it.”

    • Jim Battersbee | April 6, 2020 at 8:30 PM | Reply

      I saw that, “sitting at the beautiful resolute desk, talking to Queens and Dictators……….”
      Jeezus H Christ, the incompetence is mind blowing. The USA is finished, there’s no way back from this level.

    • Trump is right in a sense – mostly all a mask is going to do is to help protect others from you… Those face masks are disposable so they only last a day at best (and a health professional would normally change a disposable mask after seeing a single patient…) – a contaminated mask is not much good and, anyway, even a quality mask is no good if you are not following all the other Infection Control guidelines…

      Asian people all seem to think that they are some sort of a magic talisman that will protect you from all pollution and disease but the Science says that they are not very good at either – what they will do is contain your coughing and sneezing, and the viral particles you spread when talking, to a certain extent… Of course, as soon as you touch your nose/mouth you hands are going to be contaminated…

    • @Ant B
      It was proven in HK and Japanese labs that masks do help in containing the proliferation of the virus, it’s science.

    I’d rather hear bad news from a scientist than another empty promise from Trump.

    Trump has lied about Covid-19 so much he has zero credibility.

    • @Rafal Krukowski must be nice to be so ignorant rigth now, keep watching Faux News.

    • lol really? like the alarmist projection curves which were off by a 5X in less than 10 days from when they were made aha.

    • HeisenbergCertainty | April 12, 2020 at 1:59 AM | Reply

      @Marko S. cite the specific projection curve you’re referencing as being “off by a 5x in less than 10 days” from when it was made.

    • @HeisenbergCertainty Look up the University of Washington models and what projections they had on April 1st versus now. They are plenty of articles written about it.

    • HeisenbergCertainty | April 20, 2020 at 6:12 PM | Reply

      @Marko S.Thanks for your reply. I could not find projections which were off by 5X, as you claimed. However, I was aware of the change in projections cited by Drs Fauci and Birx of about a 37% downward revision over the first ten days of April — from 100,000 dead Americans to 63,000 dead Americans. These projections are the best-case scenario for the entire duration of the disease which means anyone who dies of Covid-19 one year from now will be added to the total.

      About 11 days ago there were 20,000 dead from Covid-19. Today, April 21, it is over 40,000 dead.

      My original statement stands. I would rather hear bad news from a scientist than more empty promises from Trump.

      I will give Trump a little credit. In April, he has been listening to and quoting the scientists more than he used to. Too bad for all of us he didn’t start doing that in January when he started getting warnings from his own advisers.

  19. Remember when Trump and FOX “news” were saying that COVID 19 was no worse than the flu and it was just “the Dems” trying to re-impeach Trump with a hoax?

    • @Benny They will not as red states have a lower concentration of people. But mortality will be higher with republicans, that I am sure of.

    • SkyP1e…..AS IF the Dems wanted all the decades of his corruption..as if it’s Dems fault they enforced U.S. Constitution..as if everybody isn’t sick of his nonstop nonsense
