      democrats = stealing money form everyone and everything to pay for things that they cant afford = allowing cops to do choke holds to make sure that the so called criminals dont get away this way they get more fine and court fees for stupid crimes that should not exist and only exist to see to it cops are in everyones lives. why cases are going up in florida maybe something to do with all the people from NY and cali that went there to peacefully protest. Yep I voted for change in 2012 when i voted for all democrats and in 8 years the only change we got was the cops being allowed to do choke holds to ensure more monies collected by the courts. Better yet is how the courts seen to it in these democratic controlled states to fill the jails with blacks and making them work for pennies on the dollar like a real slave. better yet is how their friends own these jails and prisons and make a fortune on this slavery in the jails. yea this democrat is voting all republican in the next election because the only change the dems want to bring is communism.

    • @Al Einstein so true.

    • @Al Einstein i have a friend, USMC,did 2 tours in afghanistan, parks his car on the street legally, white lady pulls up and tells him “You look suspicious to me” and calls the police. When i was a child my mom had stories of americans as heroes, liberators, what happened Americans? What gives? Now when i see a white person I have to be weary and avoid them.

    De Santis loyalty to trump is killing his own people

    • Amanda Reiche | July 8, 2020 at 1:09 PM | Reply

      The crime is, DeSantis believes he is best served by servicing Trump — he is morally bankrupt, just like his boss.

      And BLM’s loyalty to the DNC are killing THEIR own people by encouraging protests during covid. You liberals have to stop pretending that you don’t have blood on your hands

      @Eric Echols Sr. So true. Republicans are all for Socialism when it comes to unemployment, stimulus payments and medical treatments. But love to scream that they don’t want socialism. It’s baked into the Preamble and the Constitution itself, to provide for Common Defense and the General welfare. Shouldn’t have to prove it to Kentucky.

      Christian peterson Do you believe everything and all you hear and or read? Do you think for yourself? Do you research and look at all sides and critically think?

  4. If schools open and parents can’t get back to work, who’s taking the over/under on affairs and divorces. That includes you evangelical’s too. 🙂

  5. How you gonna mandate that all schools re-open in the fall when you’re breaking Corona case records on a daily basis? 🤦🤷

    • caroline yartey | July 8, 2020 at 2:33 PM | Reply

      Only a madman can mandate schools opening in the middle of a pandemic when he knows that the disease is real and people are dying in record numbers. Parents must use their judgement whether or not to allow their children to go to school. After all, Trump is only for Trump and not the school children!

    • John Winslow | July 8, 2020 at 2:37 PM | Reply

      @caroline yartey This is all trumps plan that he promised the evangelical church goverment welfare at the cost of public schools to fiance private Bible beater schools and this is why they don’t care what Trump does or says aslong as they get goverment welfare for there Bible beater schools
      Betsy Devoss people

    • @John Winslow The fact that t’rump is going to issue its own school re-opening guidelines because the CDC ones “are too strict” is all you need to know about where his priorities are. And tying federal funding to re-opening in full with no distance learning basically tells the schools that they have to re-open even if it isn’t safe. Pathetic.

    • John Winslow | July 8, 2020 at 3:14 PM | Reply

      @Ro G well said

    • @frictionRx9 I wouldn’t call the over-65 folks living in The Villages in Florida “liberal millenials” — they were on the news having a parade with their golf carts, remember? They are mostly Republican voters. They love living in The Villages because of all of the social activities – they advertise over 2,500 clubs and groups. The Villages has 26 golf courses – these are just for The Villages residents. And there’s many bars and restaurants within the community. It’s a total lifestyle, with the emphasis on an active, social life. So, please be reasonable – it’s not just “liberal millenials” who “gather and party and spread the virus.” It’s everyone. And everyone needs to take responsibility and show kindness and respect – both for themselves and for others.

      He should 20% of Florida’s population is over 60. Without those seniors voting Republican, Florida would be a blue state. He is probably going to cost Trump Florida

    In Florida, the governor will supply schools with Covid Cookies. That will assure plenty of classroom space and empty the Elder Care homes.

      Too late! The Dem governors already killed off all the seniors in their nursing homes. 
      Didn’t take them long, either. Maybe Cuomo can give DeSantis a few pointers.

    Remember when Florida was known for Disney World and spring break instead of crazy people and covid records?

    • Remember FL before red tide, toxic algae bloom and dead dolphins? They’ve been racing to the bottom so no wonder Don the Con claims it as his residence (btw in Mar a Lago charter it clearly states no one can claim it as their residence.) DeSantis is harboring a fugitive and fraudulent voter.

  10. And Pence said we are “just beginning to flatten the curve.” What curve? The curve that shows how many uninfected people we have left? That’s the only curve I see flattening right now.

    • Yah you bet…I will get right on that, but it doesn’t matter anyway. I don’t live in your messed up country.
      Now hurry up and tell me to mind my own business, so I can respond with “It sure would b e nice if America did the same”
      Your country is an absolute disaster. The envy of nobody. The laughing stock to all. Trump got it right…but he did it all.
      I’m out…have fun.

      Flattening the curve is useless, Florida already done this, you need to bring the curve down to its knees. Your now climbing Everest.

      @Captain The USA is the greatest empire that has ever been created in Human history. More scientific advances have come out of this country than any other. We have our own problems but we’ll get over them; unlike other countries who like to envy the USA and blame us for their own internal problems instead of fixing your own country. We are the collective minds of the brave men and women who crossed the Atlantic many, many years ago. And a minimal death rate flu and the media’s exaggeration of what’s really happening is not going to bring this mighty empire down.

    • @Paul Knowsit and it will be the shortest empire in history because of decadence.

      @T. R. Campbell
      What you have to fear most in America is political corruption, ignorance, and stupidity.
      You have built a society, a culture, of racism and hypocrisy, of greed and eye-watering stupidity. A society where “my ignorance is equal to your knowledge”.
      The home of the “alternative fact”.
      What you do have is over 130,000 dead Americans, most of whom would still be alive today if it weren’t for those little details I just mentioned.
      And the bodies keep on piling up.

    • Catherine Garcia | July 8, 2020 at 6:54 PM | Reply

      @T. R. Campbell I know that no matter what there will be people who are willing to support Trump with his agenda to get re-elected and FL governor is absolutely one of them. Holding a rally in FL in the middle of a pandemic is an example. I believe that our eyes have been closed heavily on this situation and it is so alarming when I see professionals like scientists, health officials, epidemiologists, etc. quitting or being fired because our governor’s are choosing to treat them like trash or are asking them to lie. While it is great to hear that some people have recovered from the virus, a lot of people have also died. We have made American History by losing more Americans within just a couple of weeks/months than in the Vietnam war.
      Yet. You are okay with this? Glorifying the virus by saying people who survived have a more “acute” sense of taste and smell? That we need to send kids back to school and put them in the middle of this pandemic and act like nothing is wrong?
      I honestly can’t tell if you’re joking.

    • T. R. Campbell | July 8, 2020 at 7:10 PM | Reply

      Catherine Garcia Well we have to wonder what is the Trumpsters agenda? I keep hearing that Democrats have to stop his agenda but I’m wondering what it is and I have never gotten a good explanation.
      Do we want to stop supercharged economy? We had that prior to the virus. Trumpster dust it off our iconic JFK’s tax plan a supercharged economy both then and now. JFK gave us a roadmap to the future and I don’t know why Obama/Biden didn’t open up the map. Trump did it as a result we got eight supercharged economy in which lower classes fared better than upper classes according to the WSJ.
      Do we want to go back to my taxes and draconian regulations that will force corporations and jobs to leave the country?
      Do we want to stop full employment? When we look at the supercharged economy we saw amazing data on Hispanic employment, female entrepreneurship, and black unemployment was at a historic low. We want to stop that?
      Do you want to stop a fair trade deals. We now have a good trade deal with more advantages for America between Canada and Mexico we want to stop that? We are now dealing with China in order to get better trade deals with the Chinese communist. We want to go back to kowtowing to China and letting them run the show?
      Do we want to have other European countries pay their fair share for their own defense? Or do we want to shell out millions and continue to pay the defense of our European and Asian allies?
      Do we want to go back to the failed Paris accord. We all remember the German Chancellor saying it had nothing to do with climate but everything to do with globalism.
      If you leave a motion, hate, bitterness and rage aside and really take a serious look at what the Trumpster has done, he has initiated a lot of Democrat programs. Do we want to stop those? What are we trying to stop?

    • @T. R. Campbell At least they worked and continue to work on getting it down.

      A tadpole or any other animal is not the equivalent to a human. .

  14. DeSantis: He’s a real nowhere man, sitting in his nowhere land, making all his nowhere plans for nobody.

  15. DeSantis may have found a way to fix social security.

  16. How many decades has Florida had complete Republican leadership at the State level? Are people in Florida really this ignorant? You get the government you deserve, too bad for Florida!!!

    • karin backstrom | July 8, 2020 at 6:09 PM | Reply

      @John Thomas Poor Donald, more and more abandoned by earlier supporters and more and more republican senators. Pathetic Donald holding yet another hate rally during the pandemic. That means he does not care about other people, only himself.. He is desperate of fear of losing even more fans. It is sad to watch a grown up man making such a fool of himself. Donald can’t live without attention and cheering. He always do his hate rallies in red states, because he believes he can still manipulate a small number of supporters in states with very uneducated, ignorant, misinformed, racists people with hate speeches, insults and bragging. He is too stupid to try to reach out for all the Americans. That is why he is losing supporters. He is a hateful, divisive,, destructive lunatic and that will be his fall. Donald does not have an agenda other than racism and hate. It is a mystery that there are people supporting such a destructive, anti America lunatic.
      Donald has degraded the presidency, it ha lost its international prestige it used to have before this moron.. Now it is gone. left is a government with a l dangerous lunatic as a leader
