      Robbie if you were as smart as you think you are you your intelligence your critical thinking would not allow you to be in denial about this president.

  2. The Nation learned a lot! We learned that Donald is an inept legislator, just like he is a bad businessman..if he was so concerned about the economy (as a business man would) he would have stepped up on day 1…..But just like his failed businesses and lack of intelligence, he drove our once Great Country into the abyss…..

      IF I get covid19 and end up with a huge hospital bill ( no insurance because it’s too expensive and no value based on what I feel is unfair ) if safety protocol is not guaranteed in workplace anywhere I go, THEN the state will be paying my bill! My state can charge CCP China for bill reimbursement for spreading this virus! I repeat; I will rip up paperwork if anyone sends me any corrupt crony capitalist bills of gouging!!! I will NEVER honor a corrupt system that screws over poor struggling Americans!!!

      @Jerry Haase you guys aren’t getting the point mxnfx is making! don’t be close-minded!

    • Athena Kebano trump is awesome…don’t be so closed minded….he had created the environment for the strongest American economy in decades before covid ….

    • Trump is not a legislator. He is the chief executive.
      Legislative is a branch.
      Judicial is a branch.
      Executive is a branch.
      His MANY bankruptcies have proven that he is a failure as a CEO.

    • @Alex Hamilton the lock down hurt the economy… but the virus kills people. Dead people can’t help the economy.

    Governor Cuomo should be secretary of homeland security in The Biden administration..

    • @Kaizaro123>>>The nation learned nothing from NY… which is why we now have 157K deaths.<<< Of the 157k deaths, 111k are in 9 democrat ran states. Facts are facts. The remaining 46k deaths occurred in 41 states. Fact are facts. The nation learned Cuoma killed 15,000 elderly people in nursing homes; with the stroke of a pen he signed an executive order that doomed the elderly. Then the psychotic nut bag keep the sub ways open killing another 17,000. The nation learned a lot from NY. Be a statistical illiterate fool all you want, facts are facts.

      Cuomo oath of office

      I do soullessly swear, I will menacingly support and defund the Institution of Public Safety of the United States, against all humanity, American and Patriotic; and that I will induce true evil and alliance to the same; and that I take this psychological manipulation freely, without any mental awareness or of common sense; and that I will, well and faithfully discharge the duties of the swamp in which I am about to enter.

      Patricia Queen @ thanks today for answering on Gov. Cuomo. Lotsa questions here about his leadership capabilities. I live in southern Colorado. I don’t know where you live. (I got interested during the pandemic.. when Colorado nurses were going to help out in New York City in the spring. Several did that. ) But since then, I have listened to his many press conferences and Mayor. Bill DeBlasio’s speeches as well about the Black Lives Matters issues, which were interesting as well. ⭐️I recently lost a wonderful friend at age 80 ..in June from Kingston, New York, a former cancer and aids , who worked at almost any job here and loved training cow dogs in my hometown. 🧑🏻‍🍳I was so fortunate to volunteer with her for several years and we always talked about New York’s politics and that she lived in NYC for ten years, working for Capitol Records and the Metropolitan Art Museum ..while going to college. Her parents were German immigrants during ww2. She told me so much about her happy childhood about knowing a lot about President Trump. Okay. That’s enough. Be safe and sound.⭐️👩‍🌾🧑🏻‍🍳

      @Kary Herndon Thank you, your very sweet. I’m from Michigan but left at the age of twenty. I’ve moved many times, from state to state just trying to find something better in life. I’m a 46 year old woman, raised by an alcoholic step father and my mom being depressed. Mental abuse was the norm.
      PTSD medication for me is a life saver.
      My point is, is that when you start feeling sorry for yourself, just remember that someone out there has had it alot worse than you. I try to bring laughter into people’s lives on a daily basis and that is what heals my heart. Take care of yourself and your family ❤️

      Patricia Queen @ you are most welcome. We all learn how imperfect life is. Takes a while. You’re right about laughter. We need more of it these days. Gosh. 💤💨Finding humor in some of this lately, though has been pretty difficult. We are in Fire season here and all around southern Colorado are fires. And in Southern California as well. Thanks so much for your story. Be safe and sound. Have a good evening. Alrighty? ⭐️🧑🏻‍🍳

    • dean mushtuk | August 4, 2020 at 9:57 PM | Reply

      There is a spike in the infection cases because they are doing mass testing of hundreds of thousands of random asymptomatic people!! Something that has never in history ever been done. I want to shout this into the ears of every person in the world that cannot make the mental correlational. Test more people, more people will be found with the virus, that’s the most blatantly obvious statement ever made. Test hundreds of thousands randomly and wow there will be an influenza pandemic and common cold outbreak going on right now as well. The death rate is note increasing in relation but actually decreasing, which was completely predictable as that always happens with every pandemic. It clearly shows the virulence has weakened from antigenic shift and natural antibody T-Cell immunization from infectious spread through the population numbers. The spread cannot be stopped , and will continue until the virulence is snuffed to the extent nobody will even know it exists. This is empirical immunological fact that is well documented and understood in the epidemiological world for over a century and has been going on since pathogens and humans have co-existed. At least that’s how commonsensical and logical it was until the political world recently over ran the scientific world…its crazy times!!

  5. Twice the deads as in the Vietnam war.And was is Donnie doing?
    Playing golf.

    • and 80% of those deaths are elderly in assisted living facilities
      in which governors like cuomo forced recovering covid patients

    • Trump ✔️

    • @Cid Sapient Sources for those claims would be appreciated.

    • @John Dobbs John, best not to give known tRolls any click/replies. Just downvote or ban. Clicking gives tRolls income.

    • 58k died in Vietnam btw atomic bombs onJapanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki more than 230,000 people died in the two cities as a result of immediate and long-term injuries.
      We will end up with that’s number also with this moron in office.
      And GOP’s just sitting still in their seats and don’t complain about tRump action against it

      Refresh2b Yes, this is the guy who MADE nursing homes accept Covid-positive patients. For this, NY had an outrageous nursing home/assisted living death rate compared to the rest of the country! TRUMP DID NOT DO IT!! Cuomo did!! That is why they are running this ‘deflection’! Open your eyes!!

    • how could he have not known that putting covid patients with non covid patients would get them infected????????????

    • @deb polocz NY has got it down to less than 10 deaths per day. Guess what? Florida Guy is leading the charge with over 941 deaths over the past 2 weeks. Trust the people who listen to professionals and scientists and people who study this for a lifetime.

    • @Refresh2b florida guy is just trying to catch up to cuomo

  8. The same day the White House ordered all coronavirus testing data to be sent to them instead of the CDC, the numbers have been declining. Imagine that?

    • Thank you for your compliance | August 4, 2020 at 5:30 PM | Reply

      @Trailin’ AnnieFlorida and Texas is a deflection? Are you mad?

    • Andrew, you and the OP are low IQ or willfully ignorant. The data doesn’t go through the WH. The CDC website was streamlined to make the C19 data more easy to find and understand. Also, reporting to the CDC was voluntary so the data presented wasn’t accurate. The NIH mandates reporting and that’s now the agency where the data goes through to be presented on the CDC website. Also, you can check the data against independent reporting sites like Johns Hopkins and/or worldometer or even foreign reporting agencies.

      As for any declines you suggest exist, in light of the recent surges, are a reflection of the fact the mortality rate for the virus is low— even compared to other countries.

      So, keep spreading misinformation and showing how pathetically ignorant you are just because you begrudge Trump. Also, for someone who doesn’t like the taste of Trump you sure keep him in you mouths a lot.

    • @Trailin’ Annie You must be a Trump supporter. What hospital would release a patient with a highly contagious disease? Those patients had already recovered to the point that they were not contagious. It appears that the coronavirus was introduced into the nursing home environment by staff members who were asymptomatic carriers. I am not totally letting Cuomo off the hook because the nursing homes have been getting away with murder for years by short staffing and not providing their residents with proper care and the state government is responsible for that.

      @Trailin’ Annie the difference is NY was the FIRST state to get slammed after Trump denied this sht for months. Cuomo was learning in real time with absolutely no help from anyone. We know now not to send patients to nursing homes. We had to learn from NY mistakes. Everyone was learning at that time. What’s sad is the fact that we are still having the same exact problems from 6 months ago. Pitiful and devastating. All the lives lost are for nothing because we just keep going around in circles.

    Can’t teach an anti-intellectual, anti-science masses anything conducive to controlling the spread of virus, esp. when the so-called president is one of them. The sheer basics of wearing masks are questioned, which signals their inability to understand the simple mechanics behind wearing them.

    This is the time when the true, naked face of the U.S. is revealed under all the glitz and glam. Sure, we have some brilliant people, but we can also be derailed by the stubborn, ignorant few (33% of the populace, to be exact)

    • @zurdo z Yes I said your free here to make stupid comments about the government and I defend your right to. I’m proud to see you make stupid comments without having repercussions.

    • @Period Period China didn’t spread the virus. They actually tried to contain it. It’s not like China showed up here and then went spraying the place down with Covid. The virus was spread when the fool in the whitehouse called it a hoax and did nothing. The virus was spread when the GOP ignored it. The virus was spread when the bootlickers at Faux News called it a hoax. The virus was spread when red state governors refused to do anything and/or opened up too early. The virus was spread when idiots don’t wear a mask. It’s easy to blame China because they are the source, but it’s a pandemic because of the failures of our government.

  16. When 38 percent of America are idiots that only believe in conspiracy theories the rest of America is going to suffer.

      @renz u Eight months on from the initial devastating outbreaks of Corona virus, where tragic loss of life among our senior citizens was happening on a global scale, Trump is still in wilful and shameful denial and fails at every level to protect Americans of all age group’s.
      Eight months on we should all be a lot wiser and actively follow the guidelines, Masks, Hand washing, Social distancing. If other Countries can do it, Why not America?
      Getting the virus under control should come first. Laying blame at initial failings will need to be investigated to find out who knew what and when and how things could have been avoided. Eight months on 155,000 deaths later Trump is still wilfully ignorant of the facts and lying his head off. The numbers don’t lie. Just Donnie Chaotica.

  20. There are women and men of honor, integrity and decency, and then, there’s the terrible, the liars and the inhumane.
    Trump is the latter and his dislusional and deceived voters rather be a fool for him.
    Blind love, his voters.
