  1. It’s not the US fault it’s Donald Trump fault! He downplayed how serious this was and now all of us are paying for it!

  2. Stay safe and wear your masks guys.
    Also, just a daily reminder: 9 months ago, Trump called covid “the Democrats new hoax” and that it would “magically disappear” within a few days.

  3. Let’s see. You had a president who downplayed it every last chance he got, and encouraged people to inject bleach – which one couple did, killing both of them – and a whole range of other inept, dangerous shenanigans. Even now, Trump is golfing, not leading.

  4. I can name 1 reason for America’s failure in tacking COVID … DONALD J. TRUMP!

    America did not miss chances, it just never had a chance at all under the selfishness, greed, incompetence and stupidity of “President” Trump.

    We could have lessened the impact of the virus by having a real president in charge,
    instead of some clown who just plays one on TV.

      And what’s Joes big plan ?
      Besides wearing a mask for 100 days.
      Because Trump has already gotten the vaccines. And has already done what Fauci the head of the task force directed.
      So what’s Biden’s your so called real president plans

    • @Wally Censorship if biden dose nothing at all it will be better than holding rallys to try and spread it.

  7. Let’s start with the President, who seemed to be getting his pandemic advice from Sean “Democrat hoax” Hannity, Rush “common cold” Limbaugh, and his son in law, rather than from doctors and scientists.

    • @Bel- 6863 most everything you posted is took out of context and you, I and everyone reading your bull knows. And ev ery thing he said was said before much was known about this. Someone said it would just go away and China was very transparent and after Biden wins the election no one will talk about this any more. Well that part about Biden might be a stretch but it was the election.

    • @Steve Nadort Him not remembering which arm he got a shot in. Saying the vax won’t stop the spread of the 1984 flu and convincing black ppl to take the vax first. All in the last 10 days or so.

      Didn’t Dr Brix just resign, because she was caught lying and breaking her own rules. Yes another person that said 2 million would die. And she is the one who said we should lock down. Not Trump.

      Funny thing is. More pol are dieing of suicides and ods from lockdowns. Than the 1984 flu. The solution should not be worse than the problem. In nov. In japan more ppl committed suicide than have died all year from the 1984 flu. Facts.

      But believe what you like. TDS is a powerful drug.

    • @Steve Nadort ill bet if Obama or Biden or Hillary or any other Dem was president this year. You ppl would be praising them to the high heavens, because 2 million ppl are not dead. But since its not, you ppl are in attack mode, 24/7.

    • @Bel- 6863 hopefully Biden will keep us from hitting that two million if dumpy stayed it would have be more than two million and I find it very hard to believe that 333,000 have died from suicide this year from lock downs.

    • @Steve Nadort suicides ods and other things are called 1984 flu deaths. So the numbers are wrong anyways. Several drs and ppl have said this. Look at up.

      Your right its not 300k suicides. That’s not my point. But in Japan more ppl killed them selves in one month, than have died in 11 months of the 1984 flu. Due to lockdowns.

      See i was right. If any dem was president, you would not be questioning any of this. That’s the best part.

  8. Where did the USA go wrong on COVID …….. one word…….TRUMP!

  9. No matter how bad 2020 could have been due to the pandemic, SCROOGE (trump) has made it much worst.

  10. One big reason is Trump. That’s how we missed big time.

    • Biden’s going to be humiliated ⛄

    • *bigly

      Trump was only elected cause americans kept telling themselves how great they are despite mountains of evidence pointing to the contrary. Quit trying to make yourself look better by calling out your own reflection. Trump is a literal replica of every american. Your entire culture is based around inventing delusional alternative realities to brag about yourselves. Do you know why trump doesn’t care if he lies? Cause he learned that from america.

    • @Janet Crawford dang it Janet lol you may be right or at least mostly

  12. US missed their chance when they voted for Trump back in 2016. The second chance to save themselves was to kick Trump out during his Impeachment.

    • @Hard Rocker care to explain?

    • @Hard Rocker what a low minded person you are.

    • Maureen Peterson | December 28, 2020 at 5:11 PM | Reply

      Absolutely correct- when he was impeached and the republicans refused to accept it then it was open slather – he was empowered to do as he pleased! Disgraceful! He told people what and who he was before he was elected and clearly people didn’t mind! I guess you get the government you deserve!

    • If Trump was removed by impeachment, we would have President Pence… an improvement, but not much of one.

    • @Reed Cockrell I agree that Pence isnt much of an improvement but I think Pence would have listened to the experts around him out of fear of getting any backlash. Pence prefers to be in the shadows while Trump wants to be “the One”, which is why Trump picked Pence as his VP.

  13. Trump had his chance to do his job and he refused and when Republicans didn’t step in and stop Trump’s failure they became part of the problem.

  14. Don’t blame it on China. BLAME TRUMP! He knew it all along and kept if from Americans by calling it a hoax!

    • It was China, why do the Dems still defend China? It’s like they are in their pockets or something.

    • Blaming China is completely legitimate. This virus is the Wuhan China Virus. They could have contained it within their own borders, but the ChiComs failed to do so.

  15. No, you had no chance.not with that LUMP in office…EVER!

  16. Having a psychopath as a president didn’t help either.

  17. The american government failed the american people. Plain and simple

  18. Trump should be charged with obstruction of justice.

  19. “Leadership: Whatever happens, you’re responsible. If it doesn’t happen, you’re responsible.”
    ― The Donald @ Twitter, November 2013

  20. “I think if this country gets any kinder or gentler, it’s literally going to cease to exist.”
    ― The Donald @ Playboy, March 1990
