    “Failures and missteps?”
    More like lies and misinformation.


    • It’s what trump does best; deflect, project, and lie.

      @Mike Cooper cheap shot, arrogant, bully and wicked in mind

    • Trump is a danger to this Country. He is a menace to society. I wonder how many kids would cop to saying they wanted to be President someday after watching Trump for four years???

    • Richard Darlington | March 14, 2020 at 1:06 PM | Reply

      @Tony Simmons
      … and only four years.
      I consider making Trump* a failed, one-term “president” to be a moral imperative.
      To this, I pledge my oath, my fortune, and my sacred honor.

  2. Trump’s response to the coronavirus (his words):

    January 22: “We have it totally under control. It’s one person coming in from China. It’s going to be just fine.”

    February 2: “We pretty much shut it down coming in from China.”

    February 24: “The Coronavirus is very much under control in the USA… Stock Market starting to look very good to me!”

    February 25: “CDC and my Administration are doing a GREAT job of handling Coronavirus.”

    February 25: “I think that’s a problem that’s going to go away… They have studied it. They know very much. In fact, we’re very close to a vaccine.”

    February 26: “The 15 (cases in the US) within a couple of days is going to be down to close to zero.”

    February 26: “We’re going very substantially down, not up.”

    February 27: “One day it’s like a miracle, it will disappear.”

    February 28: “We’re ordering a lot of supplies. We’re ordering a lot of, uh, elements that frankly we wouldn’t be ordering unless it was something like this. But we’re ordering a lot of different elements of medical.”

    March 2: “You take a solid flu vaccine, you don’t think that could have an impact, or much of an impact, on corona?”

    March 2: “A lot of things are happening, a lot of very exciting things are happening and they’re happening very rapidly.”

    March 4: “If we have thousands or hundreds of thousands of people that get better just by, you know, sitting around and even going to work — some of them go to work, but they get better.”

    March 5: “I NEVER said people that are feeling sick should go to work.”

    March 5: “The United States… has, as of now, only 129 cases… and 11 deaths. We are working very hard to keep these numbers as low as possible!”

    March 6: “I think we’re doing a really good job in this country at keeping it down… a tremendous job at keeping it down.”

    March 6: “Anybody right now, and yesterday, anybody that needs a test gets a test. They’re there. And the tests are beautiful…. the tests are all perfect like the letter was perfect. The transcription was perfect. Right? This was not as perfect as that but pretty good.”

    March 6: “I like this stuff. I really get it. People are surprised that I understand it… Every one of these doctors said, ‘How do you know so much about this?’ Maybe I have a natural ability. Maybe I should have done that instead of running for president.”

    March 6: “I don’t need to have the numbers double because of one ship that wasn’t our fault.”

    March 8: “We have a perfectly coordinated and fine tuned plan at the White House for our attack on CoronaVirus.”

    March 9: “This blindsided the world.”

    March 9: “The Fake News Media and their partner, the Democrat Party, is doing everything within its semi-considerable power (it used to be greater!) to inflame the CoronaVirus situation, far beyond what the facts would warrant.”

    March 10: “It will go away. Just stay calm. It will go away.”

    What TRUMP has said from his OWN MOUTH.

    • Hans Lotlot You have no life.

    • Cynthia Gates | March 23, 2020 at 12:00 PM | Reply

      At least he’s trying ? Are you daft he straight up lied to the American people by dismissing the virus ??! By not helping to stop the spread of the virus on American soil!

    • Tenebris Noctis | March 23, 2020 at 5:45 PM | Reply

      You do know Mike Pence’s nickname in the Senate. Fellow senators called him Mike Dense

    • Excellent

    • FFS, all his sentences are just a mess.
      Does he pulls out random words from a hat hoping it makes a sentence.

      He truly is the most useless, dumb, pathetic, self centred, small hand, fat, biggest liar, commie loving, most evil president ever.
      Pity the next president and the mess he or she has to clean up.

  3. A lot of respect for Yamiche Alcindor when she asked Trump if he took any responsibility for removing the pandemic readiness teams in 2018.

  4. I bet he’s had the test. He lies about everything and since he said he hadn’t had the test…he’s lying. Also if he hasn’t had test but has knowingly had direct contact with people who have the virus how irresponsible is that ?

    • Char Stevens | March 14, 2020 at 8:43 AM | Reply

      Duh….There are soo many reasons why we should know he had the test…Beside the fact that he is a baldfaced liar!!! His wife would never allow him around her or their child without the test!!!!!!!!!!

  5. Every death has 100 people infected. As of today, 50 deaths in US means 5,000 at minimum would be infected. Each infected infects 2-3 other people which would mean 10,000 to 15,000 are already infected and spreading the disease. It grows exponentially. Within 10 days, our hospital system will be overwhelmed. Practice social distancing, prepare for the worst and stay safe.

  6. This mistake started in 1946 when Fred Trump was too cheap to spend a nickel on a condom.

  7. Easily the most incompetent president we’ve ever had.

    We have seen the end of the USA. National Emergency. Dictator powers. Too dangerous for elections. Can’t you see this psychopaths mind working. He’s pure evil.

    • Vlavitir glutginskiya | March 14, 2020 at 5:39 PM | Reply

      end of the USA. are all people on the left this stupid?
      Trump, Obama, Bushes, Clinton have all declared national emergencies.

    • @Vlavitir glutginskiya
      It’s not the left or right. It’s the people.

      People IN both left and right believed in that.

      Seeing things only in left vs right is toxic and blinds you from the facts and the reality.

  9. This idiots selfiousness is now becoming life threatening, he really needs to go in 2020

  10. This is only 1 of many many reasons why it matters if the rest of the world don’t respect and franly hates our president because he’s so rude and so stupid.

      Little known fact, Trump once gave Einstein a lecture in quantum physics.

    • Trump’s stupidity….. He bashed Obama for not celebrating women getting the right to vote in 1919 …. Rofl …. He didn’t know a centennial was 100 years I don’t think….. Can anyone top that much stupid

    • Divad Noodeldehm | March 22, 2020 at 5:50 PM | Reply

      @Trisha Ann I feel so sorry for the delicate women. Let’s end their suffrage together.

    • @Divad Noodeldehm Obama tried to do it but just didn’t care enouph about women. He’s only been married once. Probably not many gf on the side. Trumps loves woman so much he’s been married 3 times and supported a lot of “working girls”. Women’s oldest profession. .. 😆

    • Divad Noodeldehm | March 23, 2020 at 7:43 AM | Reply

      @Trisha Ann I can definitely confirm Obama did not try to end women’s suffrage.

  11. The US is in decline as a result of voting into power people who have no idea how to run a country

    • Divad Noodeldehm | March 16, 2020 at 4:05 AM | Reply

      The US is in decline as a result of identity politics and the resulting Balkanization brought to us by the Blue Church. Visit Detroit and Baltimore and take in the results with your own eyes.

    Stand aside, Bart. Donnie’s the original “I didn’t do it” kid.

      @Individual-1 I better start practicing my snake handling worship now. I’ll stop cutting my hair and start wearing long dresses and speaking in tongues. I knew this was coming. I’ve been throwing myself up against the wall to get used to the pain & broken bones so when my husband beats me I can endure with dignity. I’ll be humiliated in church by the preacher because I burned my husband’s eggs that morning. I thank God every morning that I am not a Muslim or any other kind of heathen.

    • Everybody already knows Trump didn’t bring the Wuhan virus to the USA.

    • @st prch It’s good to know Captain BoneSpurs bled for us>. I think I may have underestimated him. NOT!

    • @Jeff Gibson And he didn’t do SHT to detect it ,cause the numbers would look bad for him.

    • You or I could be tested tomorrow and it wouldn’t change our behavior one bit. Regardless of the results, we would still take care of ourselves and follow directions. The direction is: when you feel these symptoms, call the doctor. 95% of the people tested in South Korea test negative–that means 95% of those test kits are wasted and the time is wasted testing the wrong people. The way to test the right people is to wait until they show up at the hospital and tell you they have the symptoms. You need to learn to think like an economist and not think like a woman and you’ll have a happier life.

    Not only has this hurt our respect as a world leader it’s making us weaker opening the door for loosing the Petro dollar and collapse of economy.but the communist countries will be at a advantage as they are not letting there people become sickened

    China’s testing people by the thousands, Italy is testing people by the thousands, South Korea is testing people by the thousands, you know what’s wrong with this list? America is on the bottom of the list welcome to the new Venezuela.

    • Liberty AboveAllElse wow…. Didn’t know you knew more than the leading researcher in infectious diseases. YOU are badly misinformed but way too dense to see that –

    • Liberty AboveAllElse yea, what we need are insults and big boy pants. You’re seriously too dense to get it. Only 138 deaths in Iran today but the big boy pants, they said it is projected to get better with those, only 300,000 – 1 million deaths with those

    • @Liberty AboveAllElse FYI Obama is not president anymore, and the pandemic response team was disbanded by Trump. And Trump knew about the virus in January, your occupant in the white house drop the ball, that estrogen filled narcissistic beta male needs to take responsibility and try and be a man and a leader. People need to stop making excuses for him, he’s not a child he just acts like one, I still got to hand it to Trump, he’s shooting for a two-fer killing people and the stock market at the same time. Obama couldn’t do that 😁

    • Liberty AboveAllElse | March 17, 2020 at 11:39 PM | Reply

      @Carlos Perez Thank God Obama isn’t president anymore. Trump started travel Ban in January against the advice of his cabinet and to the criticism of the democrats. Now they complaint that he waited too long to institute it.
      Let’s face it, you leftists are idiots who complain no matter what Trump does because you just want power. When you had it, you trashed the economy, ruined healthcare and responded poorly to crisis like the swine flu. Thank God you people are out in the wilderness where you belong.

      @Liberty AboveAllElse This response seems like an attempt at an excuse for the Trump Adm.’s lack of testing ability. And, you should be able to get to the point in your rambling response’s more quickly.

  16. Hillary should thank her lucky stars she ain’t the one dealing with this mess! LOL…But then again, she’s a smart woman who probably would’ve surrounded herself with capable people not the imbecile lapdogs trump has in his administration. WOW

    • Karen Contestabile | March 26, 2020 at 6:58 PM | Reply

      Hillary would have destroyed the earth through war by now! Neither was a logical choice!

    • @Karen Contestabile This is insanely idiotic. Even you should realize that.

    • What’s wrong with Trump’s “Task force”? Are you saying Hillary would have put together a better one? So you can predict the future I guess.

  17. Wanda Costin | March 14, 2020 at 9:28 AM | Reply

    He was to busy golfing rolling back Obama’s policy ‘s and eating cheese burgers.the man is dumb as rocks

  18. Trump: “I take no responsibility for this.” Trump is irresponsible so yes, he’s right about not being responsible. It’s why everything he touches falls apart.

    Press: “You disassembled the pandemic office that specializes in these type of pandemics didn’t you?”

    Trump: “That is such a nasty question and I believe Rick can tell you about that I didn’t do it.” Trump again: “Rick here you go take it.”

    Trump will dig up his dead parents and throw them under the bus to keep from taking the blame for anything.

    • @Fritz Skyrodyte yes, the 24/7 criticizing of Trump and Republicans while Democrats are praised 24/7, never slandered, never scrutinized. You must have sold your soul for the government dole, this is why the Demonrats offer free everything, they know bribed people will turn a blinds eye to their corruption and to their vindictive behavior.

      @Ron Allen That’s not evidence, that’s an opinion, just because you think the world spins on its axis around you doesn’t actually provide any factually correct statements for me to see why you feel this way

    • @Annie Lolololololol.. I am SO sorry. THIS is TOO much.. if I don’t laugh, I’ll cry. The “responses” on here.. SAY IT ALL!!!

    • Stephan Moesman | March 17, 2020 at 9:37 PM | Reply

      @Ron Allen Find a good specialist. Hope you’re damaged brain isn’t beyond repair 🙂 Man, you just created the need for a far stronger word for stupid.. Please respond, but don’t cry if I don’t anymore okay? Different mindsets can only communicate if both’s minds are working..

    • @Stephan Moesman Says the moron who votes for hateful, vindictive people who villainize white males to garner the minority vote. You must be special needs/a protected species Stephan Blowsman? You think your sympathy will make you immune to discrimination, crotch stain?

      @Anthony Rimoli Even people on your side meaning the Democrats are saying he’s doing a good job.

    • Debra Johnson you need to get your facts straight, because everything you’ve said is.lies and garbage. The things.we say about Trump is facts that came right out of his lying corrupt mouth. He has brought more corruption into the WH than any president in history. Obviously you’re too stupid to look for facts that are right in everybody’s face everyday.Also the deficit is higher now than ever in history!

    • Debra Johnson | March 22, 2020 at 8:16 AM | Reply

      @sandy frye That’s your interpretation. The fact is he has gone way past that and done everything possible to help Amerucans. Even those on the left have praised him. Get over it. It’s like the left calling him racist because he calls it the Chinese virus which it is. What he says and what he does are two separate things. You sound like the MSM asking stupid questions.

    • Debra Johnson | March 22, 2020 at 8:24 AM | Reply

      @sandy frye Delusional Trump hating socialist. You would much rather have a senile old man who isn’t fit to be president. Biden isn’t much different than Trump only Trump isn’t senile.
