    This man has been under a rock…..WHAT A LIAR!!!!!

  2. My small children understand that asymptomatic people are contagious. He is either a liar or stupid. He is in a very pathetic position of actually being less competent than Trump. Holy crap!

      And people will continue to vote for him!!!!!!!! Now that’s beyond belief.

    • He knew it but didn’t actually believe it. It’s hard to seperate reality from fantasy when you have high level government officials blurring the lines with false information. Be skeptical of everything is fine, but that doesn’t mean it’s fine to deny all the facts that are inconvenient for your narrative.

    • @Elaine Tublin my point was that knowing in February & responding accordingly would have been enough to avert the worst of what’s now coming for GA.

      Trump being a genius at anything is a hoax. Corona Virus is a yet another part of reality that Trump tried to deny. He finally figured out this virus don’t care about him or his numbers. Corona Virus don’t give a f about anybody.

      On top of that, he cut the CDC budget to give tax cuts to his wealthy friends.

      @Leo Well said…very sad but in a way funny that multiple groups of people (republicans) who think they are smarter than most…are actually, in fact, “dumb as rocks.”

    • Thats very TRUE.

      Even I knew two weeks ago that the president has to give the order to shut down interstate travel, non-essential businesses and issue stay at home and social distancing practices.
      He ain’t done this yet, which means we’re going to be pushing back self quarantine practices 4 months beyond April 30th

      Especially when he and everyone knows hes outright lying.

    Seriously if you didn’t know that then there’s, absolutely no way you should be governor.

  8. Some of those hillbillies don’t know what asymptomatic means. Just sayin

      They think “The Asymptomatic” ia a Ronco food chopper…

    • @Justin Jehoshaphat why are you taking everything so personally? Such a snowflake 🙄

      @Maip video You queers might wanna think about the name calling, because it’s getting old. I’d rather be a hillbilly, than an immoral kiddy fiddler.

    • @Justin Jehoshaphat what are the queers brainwashed about I don’t live there just want to know what it is so when I pass thru I know what your talking about.

      @Al J If you don’t know what I’m talking about, then you just need to mind your own buisness.

    The man is lying, that has been public knowledge for weeks, ever hear of involuntary manslaughter?

  10. The CDC is headquartered in Atlanta. Gimme a break.

    • Heavenly Trial | April 2, 2020 at 9:26 PM | Reply

      Holy moly, he said he just learns about it 24 hours ago. He is a criminal. Peoples in GA will die due to his unforgivable ignorance.

    • Let’s break that down real quick-like. CDC is full of knowledgeable folks. The rest of Georgia is full of quite possibly the least knowledgeable folks. I don’t see them attending the same dinner parties.

    • Man this is so funny, CDC HQs is in GA and he didn’t know XD

    • Ginger Nightmare | April 7, 2020 at 4:28 AM | Reply

      This fish rots from the head. Trump tells his supportive Governors to do what he bids. Protect My economy and deny corona virus.

  11. Breaking news in Georgia: The earth is round, who would have thought?

  12. Lost & Found Travel | April 2, 2020 at 2:12 PM | Reply

    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Headquarters is IN HIS STATE.

    • Even if you didn’t know where it was at some point, anybody who watches the Walking Dead—and pretty much every other movie, documentary and tv show dealing with outbreaks, should be aware of that.
      He’s lying in your face. Just like President Orange Pandemic does on a daily.

      CDC is in Atlanta, Kemp gets his votes outside the city

    • Ginger Nightmare | April 7, 2020 at 4:25 AM | Reply

      True, they closed Fulton County poll station down at noon and no one got to vote.

  13. kemp is a freakin joke. I’m ashamed to say he is the governor in the state I live in. Stacy Abrams would’ve had this state quarantined months ago and the number of cases would’ve been a lot lower.

    • @Vince I’m not quite sure what you’re saying. I’m saying that Abrams wanted to urbanize a significant chunk of Georgia (something I’m not necessarily for). What do you mean “why keep rural georgia urbanized?”

    • John Greek
      i get your point now.

    • Ginger Nightmare | April 7, 2020 at 4:33 AM | Reply

      We don’t get to vote in Georgia. In 2018 almost 100k were taken off the voter registration and Kemp as Secretary of State in charge of his OWN gubernatorial election threw out 40k mail in votes and closed Fulton County at noon. No one got to vote. Stacey would have had more votes. Kemp won by 5k.

    • Ginger Nightmare

      you do get to vote in georgia. go through the simple task of applying for a voter registration card and get accepted. Those were removed due to people moving; those who died; and etc.

    • @Ginger Nightmare Kemp did not win by 5,000 votes do some research. He won by about 50k, you can look up the numbers. Also you don’t even have the numbers right for your own accusations, the number was 300,000. The majority of that populus though was not going to vote to begin with because they didn’t even know they had been flagged because they werent adequately notified and they didn’t even go to the ballot to begin with, i.e. they were not going to vote to begin with. But those flagged for voting irregularities could still vote in a regular ballet by providing their ID. You’re welcome to lookup the exact match law if you want more info.

    Stupid is as stupid does… this guy clearly attended Trump University.

    • @James Does it matter? At the end of the day it’s the people refusing to social distance that are causing all of the deaths. Trump getting serious wouldn’t have changed the defiance of the America people. This is why we see so many deaths in Italy and Spain. Trump isn’t their leader but we have the same result.

    • James Does it matter? | April 6, 2020 at 10:21 PM | Reply

      Everyone wouldn’t have taken it seriously no but it wouldn’t have been anywhere near this bad. Everyone was quoting flu statistics and 2 states didn’t do anything just because their governor stayed loyal. The one guy never even looked into it because he believed him.
      Whether you can admit it or not his actions led to more people dying. We have 25% of the total cases that we even know about so no it’s not the same

    • @James Does it matter? You mean his inaction

    • James Does it matter? | April 7, 2020 at 1:07 AM | Reply

      The actions he chose,downplay,compare it to ridiculous things(flucar accidents?). He even braged about his ratings at one point. You don’t have to agree with the reality but that changes nothing. You want to vote for him again that’s your god given right, just be honest with yourself

      No, he’s been on long swaggering vacation, or Stupid as you reflect.

    This corrupt Georgia governor who stole the election from Stacey Abrams? Blaming the doctor for his stupidity and ignorance.

    This stupid MF’er is an embarrassment to my beautiful state of Georgia.

    • The Jeneral J.U.-ICE now if you can just smarten up your fellow communities !

    • Covid 19 could be a blessing in disguise. It’s really killing more of the older voters which tend republican. Hopefully it’ll off set the voter suppression in Georgia. And before you cry me a river, remember, it was the government whom Georgia voted in that had no clue what Covid 19 is and essentially putting its own citizen at risk possibly killing thousands. Just stating facts. I’m only saying it could be a good thing, while the government inactions actually KILLED thousands.

    • Who did you vote for… for governor

      @M 4D Abrams of course.

    Dishonesty or stupidity, either way, he should go. His actions, or lack of, will cost lives.
