  1. Trump wants to be around people that like him before he loses the election either or both dies.

    • @brian gardner
      Omg I strongly suggest you get help to prepare for the freight train of reality barreling straight for you lol. He has even lost some of his base ffs 🙄 Mute Sick of stupid!

      Daniel Kinney…sounds like time to re-watch the Hitler bunker scene.

    • @elc it is absolutely a freight train. Should Trump do this Rally Saturday, pumped up on VERY strong steroids, I hope and pray not too many of his followers become deathly ill. Ask Herman Cain how it went! Trumps actions are pathetic.

    • @brian gardner Yes, you are correct… As most doctors would suggest… wait a week or two… his handlers are killing him and his followers. Should Trump do this Rally Saturday, pumped up on VERY strong steroids, I hope and pray not too many of his followers become deathly ill. Ask Herman Cain how it went! Trumps actions are pathetic.

    • @Mark S It’s not his handlers… it’s HIM! He believes he knows it all & listens to nobody! I worry for most… but think of the lives that could be saved if he ensures the virus runs rampant through the entire gop party.

  2. Trump is in withdrawal from the cheering crowds worshipping at his feet. His ego needs a booster shot from a rally.

    • @Junie Bugg I would prefer to see him jailed.

    • @Deplorably_Deranged Dispicable_Bidon_Supporter So you can copy and paste! Very impressive.

    • Deplorably_Deranged Dispicable_Bidon_Supporter | October 9, 2020 at 9:19 PM | Reply

      yes, and everything is true; who should be jailed? and why? what law did he break? or do you just not like him?
      But honestly Hatred for a single person and those who support him is not healthy at all, not healthy for the soul, not healthy for the mind and certainly not healthy for our Great Nation … if anyone can site three nice or kind or benevolent thing that CNN NYT USAToday, MSDNC, ABC or even AP has said about the greatest greatest healthiest President since the fall of Eve and Adam, and we will vote for your fav candidate.

      many ppl are waking up; hashtag # walkaway

      He needs his narcissistic supply.

  3. Just let the public culling continue. So there can be a landslide blue win.

    Trump is going the way of his buddy, Alphonse Capone, why else would he insist on a non-disclosure agreement to see a doctor.

  5. Regina Santos | October 9, 2020 at 1:08 PM | Reply

    TRUMP does not care about American’s or America..
    Stay safe everyone 😷😷😷😷😷😷😷

  6. It is not a mystery, they either comply to what trump wants or they are ruined. This is also an ongoing theme that hasn’t had an action or consequence to stop him so he’s been given the power. The enablers have created a monster. The American citizens are paying for it.

  7. Trump and Hitler….same person!

    • Trump is Satan’s Son. 211,000 Americans DEAD because TRUMP LIED!! VOTE HIM OUT!! VOTE TRUMP OUT November 3, 2020!!

  8. Godfrey Daniel | October 9, 2020 at 1:13 PM | Reply

    The president of the USA is fully insane – there can be no further denial…

    • @Godfrey Daniel agreed…also when I have to stop at a few places close to each other, I just leave it on. You are not risking others by wearing a mask too much! In addition, its about being a role model, would much rather they error on the side of caution.

    • A True Nut job.

      Godfrey Daniel
      Agreed. Daniel, are you from the US or another country? I’d like to hear what other country’s citizens really think of Trump.

    • Corrections:
      The president of the USA is now fully immuned against COVID-19.

    • You crazy not Trump!LGBT for Trump! We tired of the Democrat hate!! Joe received funding from KKK to support segregation. U people ok with that? Really?? Better check the facts. I did and no way I’m voting for bigot Joe!!!

    The man who accused Biden of being on drugs is actually himself now on drugs and it’s amazing he says!!!

  10. Jennifer Williams | October 9, 2020 at 1:16 PM | Reply

    If they don’t say he’s negative he’s not…pretty simple

  11. By CDC guidelines he should be quarantined for at least 14 days, he hasn’t. Not following his own Administration’s Guidelines. Says it all for Don the Con.

  12. Never underestimate the stupity of his base. They will go to the hate rally, without masks or any distancing.

  13. I want a president who is not a super spreader of Covid 19.
    Vote for Joe Biden, I already did by mail.

    • 100th Like! (and not for Mike 😂)

    • Biden lied on everything!

      He is the spreader!
      The man who said to a black man that he is not black because he voted Trump!
      The man who said during the debate : Send you vote as strong as your Fear!

      He is the dividor!

      @Sly Shadows Facts don’t lie and opinions arent Facts. DemoRats just cant understand that

    • @Mike Hernandez They are brainwashed.. :C

      @Sly Shadows I agree the “Tolerant” left has shown their true colors for 4 years and NOW wants to pretend to care about “Americans”

    He isn’t going to help a country he knows he isn’t going to be president of. He’s going to try to screw over the country if anything.

    • Where in the world has socialism ever worked?

    • @Telly Vin-a sorry for ya. Try going back and researching videos on Biden and Harris and see the lies they have been telling. While your at it look at other videos of Trump rallies where he is greatly supported. Read the ones who have awoken and #walkaway from the democratic party because they realize how mean and hateful the de.democrats are. Read the comments from trump supporters who became US citizens from other socialist counties or the blacks who are waking up or people around the world who are rooting for Trump to win. Maybe if you researched instead of only listening to lies and hoping for those “free” handouts Biden promises, you too will come to understand that nothing is free, voting democrat will cost you your rights, your freedoms, your liberty and your country, but then no worries….Trump2020 4 more years to drain the swamp and get rid of the DemonRats!!!

    • He’s already SCREWED It.

    • If he can’t have it, no one can.

  15. If Trump wants sympathy from me, he can look in the dictionary between 💩 and syphilis, that’s where he’ll find my sympathy.

    • LOL!!

      David J
      big ego LOL I seriously doubt he knows you exist or cares

    • @Alex Hamilton
      Well Trump is narcissistic sociopath, so that doesn’t surprise me. He feels the same way about everyone, especially his own followers.
      Trump: “Maybe this Covid thing is a good thing. I don’t have to shake hands with these disgusting people.” 😂😆

    • @Alex Hamilton Doesn’t matter does it since millions of people think and feel the same as David J. dump will definitely notice them. Like the booing he copped at the RBG memorial. The walking skid mark is done.

      @Truth Hurts relax, boris.

    • Christena Walker | October 9, 2020 at 3:22 PM | Reply

      To Truth hurts what exactly have these DR’S said. They have mostly avoided saying anything let alone something truthful so once again how are they being truthful!

    • @chameleon habitat lmao typical response from someone with no argument to the logic presented, stay sharp guy

    • @Christena Walker What are you talking about? They’ve answered every reasonable question without divulging too much because of existing HIPPA laws, he’s fine you all just refuse to except it

    • @chameleon habitat Truth hurts and that is normal!

  17. *_Only trump’s cultists are his supporters._*

  18. Dr. Conley is compromised. I don’t trust his words either. He is tainting the profession. Shame on him!



    • @Mike Hefley Osteopaths are true doctors who chose to specialize in soft tissue and bone manipulation. Unlike chiropractors they can prescribe medications, diagnose your issues and refer you to specialists.Chiropractors are good but osteopaths are even better but harder to find.

    • @Patty Carey No. He is “only” an Osteopath.

    • @Diane Hooper small potatoes. So a glorified chiropractor

    • I don’t see people addressing this all that much but… we’re seeing all the earmarks of a fascist regime here, up to and including completely undermining the reliability of the scientific and medical community. Once you erode THAT trust… you really have nothing left save to turn to “dear leader” and what he proclaims the truth. We are living Orwell’s “1984”… and people just don’t seem to realize that it’s not coming… it’s HERE.

    He thinks he’s heroic but in reality He is demented and utterly ludricous!

  20. People have lost confidence in anything Dr Sean Conely says for all timee

    • Problem is, it’s not just him. This whole thing has been calculated to undermine any confidence in ANY scientific or medical professional, so that all people have to rely on is this administration. This isn’t going to end with Trump. This is the new normal for America, until we manage to make it right. And THAT, children, is going to take DECADES, if not more than a century. It’s easy to destroy; we’ve seen over the past several years just HOW easy. But rebuilding… now, THAT’s the problem….
