  1. Biden 2020

  2. It’s not real, neither is Climate Change or Racism, apparently.
    What a weird bubble the GOP lives in.

    • Where’s the actual proof of what they are saying? There is no video footage of these “over capacity hospitals”? How come everyone working at a hospital is saying that the hospitals are nearly empty? People who believe the hospitals are full because two people on television tell them they are; are the dumbest people in society.

    Idaho is tRump country where they love super-spreader events.

    • Not everyone in Idaho is a trumper. A lot of Idaho people are blue supporters. Personally, I think it is sickening to have so many people believing in Trump’s lies. He is absolutely despicable.
      I will be voting blue all the way, every vote possible for blue.
      BIDEN HARRIS, vote to save our country,

    • @Anne it too bad that rural Idaho has their heads up their butts, and think Boise is the portland of the state…delusional people

  6. Still President Trump is still saying that “virtually Corona virus affects no body”

    • @Roy Dullman Recent news, aside from the losing 1.17 billion over 10 years ….. he defaulted on 271 million in bank loans, yup, best businessman ever even if he was propped up by Russian mob monies. Don’t be a tool Roy. https://www.reuters.com/investigates/special-report/usa-trump-property/ A Reuters review found that at least 63 individuals with Russian passports or addresses have bought at least $98.4 million worth of property in seven Trump-branded luxury towers in southern Florida.

      MIAMI/MOSCOW – During the 2016 presidential campaign, Donald J. Trump downplayed his business ties with Russia. And since taking office as president, he has been even more emphatic.

      “I can tell you, speaking for myself, I own nothing in Russia,” President Trump said at a news conference last month. “I have no loans in Russia. I don’t have any deals in Russia.”

      But in the United States, members of the Russian elite have invested in Trump buildings. A Reuters review has found that at least 63 individuals with Russian passports or addresses have bought at least $98.4 million worth of property in seven Trump-branded luxury towers in southern Florida, according to public documents, interviews and corporate records.

      PALM BEACH, Fla. — Why did a Russian oligarch pay now-President Donald Trump $95 million for his Palm Beach mansion?

      Almost a decade later, the answer is less clear than it was at the time of the sale, the highest price paid for a Palm Beach home.

      In 2008, Dmitry Rybolovlev bought the Palm Beach mansion owned by Trump for $13 million more than the most expensive Palm Beach mansion sale up to that moment. It’s been almost a decade since the sale, but the transaction is newsworthy again as new questions surround contacts between members of Trump’s administration and Russian government officials.

    • @Roy Dullman This must be sarcasm. tRump is a moron…

    • Where’s the actual proof of what they are saying? There is no video footage of these “over capacity hospitals”? How come everyone working at a hospital is saying that the hospitals are nearly empty? People who believe the hospitals are full because two people on television tell them they are; are the dumbest people in society.

    • @ATL Braves Very soon you will ask for the spirit of 225k Americans dead as a proof to show that they are Dead.

      @ATL Braves so you tell us genius, why are all these doctors lying?

  7. Marilyn Reallon | October 28, 2020 at 3:37 PM | Reply

    The covid virus must of not seen the Trump tweet that said it has rounded the corner and magically went away!

  8. tRump “we are turning the corner”, only afterwards there is the chasm

    • You believe these liars just because they tell you? Where is the proof these hospitals are at full capacity? You must be s gullible clown.

    • @ATL Braves I don’t believe anybody, I see the facts and try to reason with my head, by the way, I am not American and I don’t live in the U.S.

    • Leonie Romanes | October 28, 2020 at 8:16 PM | Reply

      @ATL Braves so doctors are making it all up, just to make orange Moloch look bad?

  9. Rounding the turn into a ditch

  10. Hospitals full get a helicopter ride and lodge them at the White House because they are all immune from covid.

    • Deborah Freedman | October 28, 2020 at 6:13 PM | Reply

      Yeah, stop flying them to Portland. First we got their damned militias, now their Covid patients. Why didn’t they put a mask order in place?

  11. Vote Paulette Jordan to the Senate Idaho! Jim Risch does not care about you. There are 1.7 million people in this state. Covid-19 numbers should not be this high.

      @ATL Braves Their hospitals are so full, they are flying their patients to Portland, Oregon, filling up our ICU beds.

    • @Deborah Freedman – He/She is spam-posting that tripe throughout the thread…it’s best kept in ‘File 13’. 😏

    • Risch has been dirty for a long time and is not fit to be a Senator.
