  1. And we’re surprised at this point??? Honestly I expected something like this. Trump has handled everything else in his presidency poorly and immaturely; why would this be any different?

  2. The Fed failed to act because they had no direction from the top.

    • @Low IQ Leftist still trying to get the last word loser? Geez you don’t have to lie to make friends closet boy.

      And that comment you just criticized Trump for taking too long on the travel ban while Democrats actually screamed that he was racist and overreacting and causing racism and discrimination against the Chinese for his overreaction… Even Nancy pelosi and Alexandria ocasio-cortez invited people to gather in Chinatown while the social distancing order was already set!
      That’s just great material

      I bet you don’t even know that on January 17 even the W.H.O said that the coronavirus is not transmittable between humans..

      You’re TDS doesn’t even allow you to think! It just blames Trump no matter what! And I love it!

      So if you don’t mind be predictable and insult me again it’s more material.

      That’s perfect!
      Why would you care what the speaker of the house and a congressman are doing? They’re just part of your government but I guess CNN isn’t telling you to care, so why would you?
      There is a Republican Senate and presidency, but you haven’t successfully proved anything you said about them.
      And thanks for that immature insult at the end on top of you not knowing what you’re talking about.
      Normally once I admit I’m going to use someone’s comments to make them look stupid, they stop.
      But I like that you just keep going

    • @Low IQ Leftist shouldn’t you be down working as a mouth down at the local GOP gloryhole? They got plenty of poles for you to smoke. 🤣

    tRump says that he is doing a great job, but why has the US got the highest infection rates in the world?

      @Vortec 262 oh bull! Other countries are testing way more than us…Chump doesn’t want the real numbers coming out. Everyone who wants a test can get a test….biggest lie yet! Sad! Bigly sad! The reality show host who refuses to live in reality!

      @Vortec 262 NY times has an article on Fort Detrick and YT George Webb on Faucis patents, I have other reports and articles on my PC however I’m using my phone and can’t be bothered switching my PC on to copy and paste the reports to you, because I never booked marked all the reports it will take time and effort to do so. Also the virus that you have in the US according to the experts came from Europe not from China, Democracy Now on YT aired this today.

    • @dryhumor foe I know it caught u off guard and your upset. but I have prepared myself my whole life for a shutdown. Trump administration is powerless. Most of what they do or don’t do makes very little difference either way.

      @Beatsboxdre Beats no not now it’s the US

    • We don’t, per cap infection rate is doing good. You are at least smart enough not to compare total infections without considering population size right? That’s like elementary school stuff.

    Iowa needs P.PE. and test kits . I think they’re short on test kits ,cause when I called my clinic few weeks ago .they ask me have I been out country

  5. It’s OK….Jared got this……….

      hunt down a clip of the mayor of Chicago, at a Pritzker presser abt 3 days ago, ripping Jared a new one. I fell in love with her in that 2 minutes. She’s maybe 5 foot tall and you got the sense she could have knocked Jared down with one punch.

    • “Ly’in King” pulled some big strings to get him his gravy job….

    • You forgot ” deer caught in the headlights ” Pence. We’re in the excellent hands.

    as I sit here and begin to feel sick…
    an eye for an eye comes to mind.

  9. trump did not inherit a broken system. He purposefully dismantled and destroyed it. All because of his utterly blind visceral hatred and jealously of Obama. Trump is the greatest failure in Presidential history.

      @vman armand Private citizens??? How stupid are you?

    • @vman armand Killary is under investigation again and has a lot to answer for.

  11. The delay in implantation of a concise national plan is costing human lives negligently from our government.

    I have a sick family member tested almost 2 weeks ago. Still waiting for result. This is all a giant lie from the federal government.
