    Good, they down played it for months. Walking around without protection and should suffer greatly from this. 206,000 dead people they need to taste the sufferance.

    • Paula Dixon Insurance Broker, maybe now he MIGHT listen to the experts! Can’t fix stupid, so probably not.


    America: What is?

    trump: my life, my wealth, my marriage… all of it’s a hoax 😢

    America: Oh, I thought you were talking about something important 😶

  3. Trump plan “B” , fake it!

    • He’s about to pull the sympathy card. Old grumpy azz. He done put all his rally supporters in danger.

    • That’s what I’m thinking too. That his advisers saw this as a convenient excuse to get out of the last two debates, and possibly get sympathy votes. No way someone his age and in his physical condition, would just have “mild symptoms.”

    • Viviana Medina | October 2, 2020 at 3:06 PM | Reply

      My God, my biggest concern is that people will vote for him because they feel sorry for him 😒.
      Let’s NOT forget his total disregard for the health of American people. The President indifference towards the loss of life in America.

      Do not believe it. The ONLY way id believe it is if he died. I think its nothing more than his political stunt from his team to stop trump from talking. TRUMP will not agree to new rules from the debate so his team came up with another alternative. DO NOT BELIEVE IT!

      I thought that was Plan “A”. LOL

    If Stephen Miller got it, it would be a lot easier than opening his coffin during the daytime.

  5. My mother used to say: “God will punish you, if your are lying”.

    • Your mom sounds ignorant. My mom said SHE would punish me for lying. More effective.

      @Phoebe Anderson It is all Trump’s fault he personally killed 205,000 people? You do know less than 10,000 actually died from just having this virus. Whatever the case it doesn’t really matter. But you better be accurate on your raping 20 women stat, you don’t want to bear false witness.

      @Bipolar Mind Droppings God is real my friend and Jesus is the only path to heaven, sorry to break the news to you and we are watching bible prophecy unfold with detail laser pinpoint accuracy.

    • well here it is

    • The Facts matter | October 2, 2020 at 9:30 PM | Reply

      If that were the case all the people from CNN MSNBC ABC CBS and the whole DEMOCRATIC party would be dead! And probably half of the REPUBLICAN establishment….

  6. So is Trump a premeditated MURDERER if others around him die? (Remember what he told Bob Woodward in March? He knew alright.)

  7. Brotha in Beijing | October 2, 2020 at 10:58 AM | Reply

    The irony of contracting a potentially lethal infection from someone named “Hope”.

  8. Fauci, “Time for your BLEACH Mr President”.

  9. Complete and utter disregard for the safety and well-being of others.

    • Marcella Norfleet | October 2, 2020 at 12:19 PM | Reply

      That’s well said!

    • “If you can’t take care of your sick in the country, forget it, it’s all over. I mean, it’s no good. So I’m very liberal when it comes to health care. I believe in universal health care. I believe in whatever it takes to make people well and better.”
      ― The Donald @ Larry King Live, October 1999

    • yes

    • The arrogance and hubris of the Chump family, Rudy, and Chump’s cronies is sickening. There they all sit pretending to be the “cat’s meow”, after being asked to wear masks …. and obviously they refused and ignored the safety of others. Yet we see others behind them with masks on and complying with the rules. They need to refuse these Chump family and idiots entrance to anything until they comply with mask wearing just like everyone else.

      @Corey Ham the “law and order” president who refuses to abide by the most basic rule. 1. Do no harm.

  10. A State of Mind | October 2, 2020 at 11:11 AM | Reply

    Joe’s wife wisely wore her mask throughout this event I noticed, as did the young woman with her. I think Joe would have worn his as well had wearing one not made it a little more difficult for him to be heard.

  11. These anti-maskers are just so freakin’ ignorant, man!

  12. “… So I said to my people, ‘Slow the testing down, please.’”
    ― Dennis the Menace

    • “But SIR…”

    • Said the man who gets tested daily .WTF ?

    • The Facts matter | October 2, 2020 at 3:30 PM | Reply

      Said the Obama administration with h1 n1 but they said stop all testing!! Sleepy Joe is just an American icon! He’s done great things in his 47 years in public service! Can any one name one??

    • The “billionaire” who hides his tax returns.
      The “genius” who hides his college grades.
      The “self-made man” who tax dodged a $413M “gift” from daddy’s real estate empire.
      The “businessman” who bankrupted 3 casinos and lost over $1B in 10 yrs.
      The “playboy” who pays for $ех.
      The “Christian”, twice-divorced philanderer, who never asks God for forgiveness.
      The “man of the Bible” who declined to name even one of his favorite Bible verses.
      The “gentleman and champion for all women” who ordered his golf club managers to fire every woman who was not young enough and attractive enough.
      The “philanthropist” who defrauds charity.
      The “patriot” who dodged the draft; family tradition: grandfather was kicked out of Bavaria for draft-dodging, father bribed a doctor tenant to exempt Donald from military service.
      The “paragon of honesty” whose new immigration rules would have kept his and his senior anti-immigration adviser Stephen Miller’s grandparents out.
      The “steadfast defender of our nation’s borders” who married an alleged undocumented immigrant and illegal worker who sponsored her parents into the country by “chain migration”.
      The “staunch Republican” who donated to Democrats at all gov’t levels: Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden, John Kerry, Anthony Weiner, Harry Reid, Andrew Cuomo, Terry McAuliffe, Eliot Spitzer.
      The “innocent man” who refuses to testify.
      The “President” who takes no responsibility.
      The “tough, strong man“ who wears makeup and hairspray but never a mask.
      The “deal maker” who has yet to close a deal.

      If America reelects this guy, it deserves the dystopian future that follows.

    • @The Facts matter Well he hasn’t told people to inject bleach for one

  13. Biden should challenge Trump to debate remotely. Trump will never agree to it.

    • Virginia O'Flaherty | October 2, 2020 at 8:26 PM | Reply

      He should have. Too late now. I wouldn’t bother engaging in another “debate”. Lincoln /Douglas are rolling in their graves.

    • @Virginia O’Flaherty Lol! Or they may decide to rise from their graves and do a little “Christmas Carol” visit to the White House.

    • @aboctok Lol! It will take weeks but at least there won’t be any Covid.

    • The GOP is already getting a Yellow Dyed Hair Weave, and GIANT RED TIE for Chris Christie and have him stand in for Bunker Boy at the debates….They are both the SAME SIZE, so you won’t know the difference…

    • @James Irving The golf game………can Christie putt?

  14. Trump acting like that in Cleveland is unforgiveable.🤬 His supporters are the same way. They’re toxic every way imaginable.

  15. Hoisted on his own petard ….. but is Trump capable of learning from this? my guess NO!!

  16. I hope to god he didn’t give it to Biden.

  17. I’m not sure even Covid could survive entering a body with that level of toxicity.

    At this point he can be cured quickly the doctors around him need to start an IV of bleach and Lysol.

      Don’t forget the sunshine and hydroxychloroquine or it won’t work!

    • stat

    • @Bra-Ball Legend absolutely! & you know the irony, sunlight does help to some extent, in particular due to it’s vitamin d effect, but despite him being orange, he likely has no vitamin d, I mean the orange is either fake tan or it’s tanning lamps, that are of a uv wavelenght that has no vitamin d at all :))

    • @Lilac Lizard well, according to Trump, the sunshine needs to be on the inside. So a powerful UV light suppository is in order.

    Trump: Weve turned the corner on coronavirus.

    Coronavirus: Really? Ive got something for you.

    • Luis Arredondo | October 2, 2020 at 1:57 PM | Reply

      Haha 😂

    • well it kinda is turning a corner really isn’t it. To suddenly have a situation where half the government’s infected, that’s a pretty big corner turn! I mean the opposite direction to where he was probably implying with his corner turning, but still a pretty big corner turn!

    • Mine and my family’s thoughts and prayers go out to COVID-19 during this time.
