    How many times can you round the corner before your back where your started

    • @Ragnaroq Lol

    • @Charles Sure. Go ahead and flush.

    • Quickster Twister | October 23, 2020 at 6:17 PM | Reply

      @Charles Trump lies at least 10x more than the amount Biden does and Trump’s more racist than Biden is, but you do you

    • @Bill Wilson I’m DAM Sure Glad You Think He Did a Good Job Responding to the PANDEMIC 225,000 DEATH AND COUNTING AND YOU THINK HE DID A GOOD JOB, and as REGARDS the PERCENTAGES, IF ONLY 1 PERSON DIED FROM IT, IS ONE TO MANY FOR ME, IF IT WHERE I ARE MY LOVED ONES AND YOU FOR THAT MATTER, THINK ABOUT IT.

    • They rounded the corner…from a level “curve” to shooting straight up!

  2. He’s desperate to deliver a vaccine before the election so he can put on his cape and play hero over a plague he has done nothing to stop.

    • The King Of Waffles | October 23, 2020 at 5:51 PM | Reply

      Yeah, But it’d be extremely *horrific* if *Trump* decided to put on *cheer leaders* uniform instead of a cape…. 😒

    • @Raging Monk Exactly!! Bravo! Bravo! Someone needed to shut that troll up. I hope it worked! 👍👍

    • @Charles Oh come on with that! You were going to vote for Trump all along. This late in the game after everything Trump has done after everything that has been exposed about him IF you still needed this much time to decide then you were always going to vote Trump. Now you are saying this to make yourself feel better about your decision but you aren’t fooling anybody. As for what Biden said, he said that he had nothing against fracking as long as it wasn’t done on federally owned property. Does the video show differently?

    • Random Traveler | October 23, 2020 at 9:41 PM | Reply

      I’m not a doctor but I’d be skeptical of any vaccine available this year. A vaccine has never been successfully created in a year and they can go horribly wrong.

    There is NO reason to fact check a habitual liar. C’mon, guys, he was being sarcastic, or he didn’t mean what he said, or we misunderstood him, per his cult.

    • @Dean Soings Trump SHOULDN’T have to pay for negative ads but he does. Trump SHOULDN’T have to tweet negative things every day, all day long but he does, Trump SHOULDN’T have to give negative interviews but he does. Trump SHOULDN’T have to do ANY of these things because he has all of you his loyal supporters in his pocket and you aren’t going anywhere. So this is to say, that Trump isn’t trying to cater to the rest of us because those are the things that made us turn away from him. He is obviously catering to people like you who likes his meanness, his crassness, his rudeness, his disrespect and crudeness. The rest of us don’t care for that nor the lack of policies other than anything structured against race and healthcare. So keep supporting the Liar in Chief, the Dissenter in Chief because he needs all of his 40% of votes. IF Trump DOES win again, I hope you will be happy with the fact that he cheated again and that you will no longer be able to think you are a party of people with any morals values. You will never have the right to call us on ANYTHING we may do IF and when we get back into the WH. Whether it is now, or four years from now, we will be back and I hope that dish our every dirty underhanded thing your party has done or ever thought to do. 🙂

    • @Dean Soings Crowds don’t mean anything during this pandemic. All his crowd size shows is that WE have far more sense than any of those Trump supporters at his super spreader rallies. The votes will tell the true story come November 3rd. 😁

    • @Tiger Army Everything Biden said was understandable by competent people. She asked that question because she was shocked that he said he would get rid of oil. So he went on to explain what he meant. As simple as that. No rocket science.

    • @Terry LewisActually many of these complaints are from people I have spoken to that have before voted democrat that feel like the radical left have hijacked their party. And you will soon see that spending the last 4 years primarily promoting “orange man bad” is not enough to entrust a party with the white house. As to where I get my info, I am skeptical of all info until I begin to decipher the truth. For example, if Don Jr’s laptop emails said 10% goes to the “big guy” from a foreign deal and Fox refused to cover it, and write it off to Russian disinformation I would question the legitimacy of their organization. I have watched hours of CNN, MSNBC, and other MSM tell me for 3 years Trump was going down for Russian collusion. Did they just get hundreds of stories wrong just by accident, or was an agenda being portrayed. Trump has been the most scrutinized person in the world, surely one of these “orange man bad” stories would stick. In case you haven’t noticed Murdoch is a large democrat donor and is slowly steering Fox more center or left depending on your POV. I keep an open mind and don’t give my allegiance to any man.

    • @Terry Lewis Ha!!! You must have been watching a modified version thru CNN. He said many things that people didn’t understand. It’s typical of him due to his age and condition. He is way past his capability thus he’s is just a puppet for the Democratic Party. It’s sad they can’t get someone to stand front and center. Then again, the Republican Party too didn’t have anyone to to stand forward thus is why we have Trump.

  4. Like I’ve said. Covid is a problem Republicans are incapable of solving. Fixing it requires a plan, effective governance, and listening to experts.

    Things Republicans have built their platform on not doing.

  5. Every time he lies about the situation he is spitting on the graves of the 220,000+ Americans who have died.

    • marty meat hood law | October 23, 2020 at 3:49 PM | Reply

      @nevermore from past what the death rate ..scholar…

    • My family has been in the energy industry for 40 years just outside of Pittsburgh. Joe asked Trump to put the video about banning/phasing out fracking on his web site. So I checked it today. I can’t believe it! How could Joe (and Kamala too in her debate) lie like that? And then fail to correct himself? Whether you like fracking or not, how could Joe lie..and then double-down on his lie? We need someone more with it.
      Then I checked some of Joe’s record on race. I’m shocked again. I don’t like Trump’s personality, but he sure got a lot done for blacks. Joe has hurt the blacks.
      I’m changing my vote to Trump. No way I’ll vote for such a person.

    • @Charles Are you going to repost this comment under every statement?! 🤦‍♂️

  6. We’re going in the wrong direction and it going to get worse

  7. How many of those states with surging cases were ones trump had rallies in?

  8. TRUMP IS THE GREATEST LEADER OF LIES OF ALL TIME!!!!! NO MORE LIAR IN CHEIF STARTING NOV 3RD

    “It will disappear, one day it’s like a miracle, it will disappear.” Words of a very stable genius who doesn’t like tough questions.

  10. Trump is such a liar. You can’t believe anything that comes out of his mouth.

  11. Miguel Sanchez | October 23, 2020 at 2:46 PM | Reply

    1:34 you got it all wrong. He meant *ARIZONA IS GONE – TEXAS IS GONE- THE OTHERS – ARE GONE!!!* … they are all DEAD… that’s what he meant<.<

  12. Mission Blonde | October 23, 2020 at 2:47 PM | Reply

    What Florida is he looking at 🧐😷💙. Vote 🗳

  13. Trump is a liar, actually there’s increasing in coronavirus cases in Trump states
    It really sad that Trump supporters believe that the coronavirus cases are decreasing in red states.

    • Zach Addington | October 23, 2020 at 4:22 PM | Reply

      Let the red states increase itll teach them.

    • @Zach Addington I’d agree but we all have to pay HIGHER healthcare premiums because these ding dongs will got out there and get sick.

    • Republican states are the ones that are the problem now! Texas is leading in every category–most cases total, most daily cases, most daily deaths. So much winning! (I bet that a large chunk of this current spike in Covid cases will trace directly back to Trump rallies!)

    VOTE BIDEN/ HARRIS 2020 💙🙏🏾💙🇺🇸

    How many tRUMP supporters have been killed as a result of his rally

  16. SheSharpShoots | October 23, 2020 at 2:51 PM | Reply

    Isn’t it quite interesting that the covid spikes that we are now seeing our States that Donald Trump has held super-spreader events. He is the one who is making covid cases rise

    • It is quite interesting that they would not show the spikes when 1000’s of VIOLENT BLM mostly peaceful RIOTERS were yelling and spitting all over everybody! It is also interesting that 85% of people who wear masks faithfully still got COVID & DID NOT DIE! DOOM & GLOOM Infection cases? How about you FACT CHECK how many people are in the hospitals and how LOW the death rate is. The survival rate is 99.97 % for people under 60 years old NOW! How many of these somewhat accurate tests for CV19 people actually get sick, what is the % of the sick or the recovered? According to you 8 Million still have it, LOL! TRUMP & his administration did a reasonable FEDERAL job responding to a brand NEW Virus and We have not really heard of anything different that JOE BIDEN would have done (other than not lock down travel as fast as Trump did). In fact it was the Local leaders (especially Blue States) that made some poor decisions (NY’s CUOMO killed the most people. Sweden did it right: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JKBk_Se-I8E&t=78s Joe is still out to lunch want to keep things closed! I WILL VOTE TRUMP 2020 and Republicans across the board!

      @Bill Wilson 🤡🖕😆🖕

    • @Velociraptor 1961 Boy your responses are intelligent.

    • @Bill Wilson The BLM, unlike Trump and his supporters, actually masked up for the most part so I doubt there was much spitting going on which means they had to intentionally take off their masks to spit on people and maybe those people deserved it. Btw, this is about TRUMP and HIS response and HIS lies. How did BLM anx blue states get in this. Oh, yeah! YOU brought it up as a deflection to protect your precious president.

    I wish Trump would turn the corner and keep walking…Bye-bye 🙌

  18. His beauuutiful health plan…How can one describe something like healthcare plan beautiful? I guess so beautiful that it never exist🤔

  19. certainly every time trumputin opens his mouth he lies.

    • I bet that many Russian people would love to have an open discussion about Putin like we can but they don’t care. Putin also tells lies but he does it more carefully and skilfully.

  20. OKAY, THE SPIKES ARE NOT GONE BUT YOU WILL BE! 
    VOTE BIDEN!
