  1. Hard to have sympathy for a man with no empathy or spewing lies over and over.. now on his watch there’re two hundred thousand American people who are death and some of them who could have been breathing today are gone.. Thank You Fox News..☹️

    • Yep, Trump brought this upon himself and his followers by calling the virus a hoax, not using masks or social distancing. If he has gone to the hospital, it’s serious. If you have mild symptoms you stay home. The same thing happened to other crazy leaders like Bolsonaro in Brazil and Boris Johnson in the UK.

    • If it’s possible, I have sub-zero sympathy for that orange pig and his filth. I hope they all get it, especially his corrupt spawn.

    • I thought Trump was in such good shape why is he going to the hospital?🤔🤔He thinks he so healthy when he’s overweight and 74 years old but calls Biden an old man when he’s only 3 years older than him

    • You mess with the bull you get the horns.

      @Scott Allen I haven’t heard that since 1965. Of course, it was in its original form then. I agree, though. No one deserves the horns more than Trump.

  2. The Republican Party is the zombie apocalypse. If you know a Republican avoid them at all cost they will infect you.


    • youtube watcher I know huh? Republicans should have to wear a Big Red C on their clothes, so normal people of science and fact can avoid them…

    • I was infected by a group of republicans this morning at a store. My IQ dropped 25 points listening to them. I was able to safely get a to a book and treat the symptoms by reading 2 quick chapters.

    • Downright Dutch Should have been the bigger one the Dems wanted. Republicans dropped the bollock on it.

    • @John Jordan Rumps followers already have their stupid red Maga hats! (maggots)😂😂Another identifer works too.Have a nice night John.

  3. Kellyanne Conway gets COVID-19, too. Hummm, is it still a democratic hoax?

  4. He who laughs masked laughs last.

      Speaking of the treasonous lardarse, here’s the recipe for a Trump-sandwich:
      Two thick slices of lumpy white bread.
      One tremendously bigly truckload of baloney.
      One barrelful of Russian dressing.
      One tiny little squishy toadstool.

      Ingesting a Trump-sandwich will will cause excruciating butt-hurt, insane delusions, abysmal ignorance, ridiculously foul language and debilitating sophophobia.

      Speaking of extraordinarily gross and unhealthy food, what is Donald John Trump’s favorite seafood?

      Donald John Trump’s favorite seafood is of course the fishy Ukrainian national dish Squid pro Quo 🦑 🥣 🎃

      Ross Harper In March, Trump signed the $2.2 trillion‼️CARES Act, (HidenBunkerBiden LIED!) which included the Paycheck Protection Program that issued forgivable loans to millions of businesses with under 500 employees‼️Trump also signed another round of funding for PPP‼️
      “They have done nothing to help small businesses, nothing, they’re closing — one in six is now gone,” Biden said. “He ought to get on the job and take care of the needs of the American people.”
      Trump tried to respond, and arrogant, godless, prepossessed never-Trumper ‘moderator’ Chris Wallace said, “Well, you both had two minutes, sir.” Trump said that most people want to see the economy reopen safely.
      “I look at New York, it’s so sad what’s happening in New York,” the president said. “It’s almost like a ghost town, and I’m not sure it can ever recover, what they’ve done in New York. People want their places open. They want to get back to their lives. They’ll be careful, but they want the schools open.”
      So far, the Paycheck Protection Program has issued roughly $670 billion worth of loans to almost 5 million businesses, according to the Small Business Administration.

    The Rose Garden super spreader workshop was an outstanding success. Thanks to all attendees for their active participation.

    The best treatment for all these wasters is a large dose of bleach as suggested by that super Doctor D Trump

  8. Do you really think that silly judge, who chose not to take precautions against taking the virus home to her family, can be considered wise?

      @Cecil Brisley ICU Nurse here. I CALL BS. Children get worse. A neurologic semi-paralyzing syndrome, similar to KawaSakis. Tell that to parents of children who have died.

    • Cecil Brisley | October 3, 2020 at 7:52 PM | Reply

      @Danielle Adair Of the 210 000 deaths in the us, only about 100 have been teens or younger. Simple facts. 100 kids from a population of 330 000 000. It is BS to think it is a great danger to children in light of this statistic. Pulling the whole “icu nurse or doctor” thing is meaningless in the face of facts. Also people can lie or be wrong regardless of career. The “demon sperm” doctor was actually a doctor after all.

    • @Cecil Brisley Please go to the next Trump rally, and don’t wear a mask.

      That’s a really good point !

    • Kimberly Winters | October 3, 2020 at 10:12 PM | Reply

      There’s another epidemic happening among children, it paralyzes them and there is no cure, some kids regain some feeling but most do not, so on top of that you think it’s ok for kids to go without masks ?
      I mean what is your deal why are you saying that children are at very low risk who cares if they were I would want to protect every child the same as if they were an adult human being u weirdo.

  9. It’s a hoax. Fake news. Trump is going to fake his death and go into hiding for the rest of his life!

  10. Kellyanne has a farewell gift of COVID from trump.

  13. Trump is the largest driver of misinformation Period, coronavirus is just one of many.

    • It isn’t to surprising that trump is the largest driver. He does have a large platform.

    • Pointless Matter | October 3, 2020 at 1:33 PM | Reply

      @George Layton He’s also the largest liar.

    • For people who don’t have to be exposed because of their jobs forced interaction with the public, the people who get sick fall into 3 buckets. Out of 100, 1 had bad luck and they wore a mask, 9 know where they got it and are responsible, 90 it’s a pattern of irresponsible behavior that has caught up with them. Trump, his staff, Republicans, and millions of Trump supporters fall into the last group and I don’t really care what their outcome is good or bad because they are taking the medicine they served up to themselves. Republicans are big on personal responsibility, and they alone are responsible for getting sick, getting other people sick, and the outcome of all the sickness, the serial drunk driver is an apt analogy.


  14. “Because nobody was wearing a mask, everybody was at risk”. Scary words. Are they scared, the people who were there?

      Isn’t that rather cruel?

    • @Wim Philipsen It has been indicated that the attitude of Trump and his cronies may have caused thousands of deaths and infections. Feel for their victims who may have trusted them in their naievity.

      @king zulu 13 Because they killed 209,000 people with their covid-19 disinformation. The fact devil’s apostle, slimy, vile entity trump tossed his hat out to his supporters, knowing full well he is infected with covid-19 makes it glaringly clear, he is intentionally and purposefully murdering Americans with his covid-19. Biden/Harris 2020!.

    • Thank you. I’ve lost family and friends to covid since the Spring. A number of them faithfully believed him when he and Fox news proclaimed covid to be a hoax on top of all his ongoing misinformation and politicizing masks and the lockdowns. He has the blood of so many on his tiny hands. I want my loved ones back. I feel not an ounce of compassion for him. I don’t know what to say anymore to those who support him. I hope they know how lucky they are to still have their health and their loved ones. Thank you for your comment. Stay safe😷

  16. I like presidents that don’t contract a lethal virus.

    If all Trump’s cronies got infected no tears shed for them… it’s their own idiotic behavior the country is better without them

      Asymptomatics could also be reporters I mean how we meant to know til catching the virus happens. A really risky job with having to take risky chances with fellow reporters camera crew etc VIP’s, the wider public, many not wearing masks, ignoring social distance rules, News team crowd herds are just so wrong during covid. Not a necessary wrong either. God grant wisdom where needed, after all your returning home after work to vulnerable loved ones. . 🙏🌈

    • Unbelievable my whole life is changed with Crypto trading. I was a debtor and almost kicked out of my house but Mr Daniel Changed that from happening with his strategies. I invested $3,200 and got back $13,700 just after seven days of investing with him. Thank you so Mr Daniel, you can contact him on Instagram @Danielwrightfx

    • social Darwinism in action—- soon to be extinct dodo bird gets taken out of the gene pool.

  18. This is Karma. Trump and his administration have been playing politics with people’s lives, businesses and industries and whole communities.

    • When the president told us that it was nothing I didn’t think they would lie to us so I didn’t take it seriously. I have began watching Al Jazeera english, w i o n news, and DW news so I knew that other countries were becoming alarmingly infected but still the president said we didn’t have anything to worry about.
      But on March 29th, Joe Diffie died, we are the same age, and I realized then that the president was lying to us.
      Now over 200K dead including people he knew! He lied to his own people ie Senator Herman Cain and friends ie Stanley Chera both who died a slow death a month after being infected with covid-19.
      Now he has become infected along with others from the Rose Garden, in his own space! I wonder if they will find Justice Coney as the super spreader?

    • Pernell13489 bite your tongue, she is not Justice Conley yet she is JUST Judge Conley! 😂 JK, Of course.
      Although she isn’t Justice Conley yet, I just wanted you to know it was just busting your chops.

      To all of Donny Death’s evangelical supporters, the Bloated Buffoon catching COVID-19 is GOD’S WILL and GOD’S WRAITH!


  19. The new Trumpshenko campaign slogan sweeping the nation: “He can’t protect the country. He couldn’t even protect himself.”

  20. After 4+ years of making this political, now that Trump tests positive, its not about politics? No. Sorry. You made your bed, now lie in it.
