    1. “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

      “A friend of mine was in Scotland recently. He got very, very sick. They took him by ambulance and he was there for four days. He was really in trouble, and they released him and he said, ‘Where do I pay?’ And they said, ‘There’s no charge.’ Not only that, he said it was like great doctors, great care. I mean we could have a great system in this country.”
      ― The Donald @ The David Letterman Show, January 2015

      “We’re going to have insurance for everybody. We’re going to have a healthcare that is far less expensive and far better.”
      ― The Donald @ interview with The Washington Post, January 2017

      “I don’t want to pivot… If you start pivoting, you’re not being honest with people.”
      ― The Donald @ interview with Wisconsin television station WKBT, August 2016

      “You can’t con people, at least not for long. You can create excitement, you can do wonderful promotion and get all kinds of press, and you can throw in a little hyperbole. But if you don’t deliver the goods, people will eventually catch on.”

    1. @Maggie Hubbard Bruh, they signed affidavits. If they lie at any point they go to prison for perjury. You calling them non credible and they just started coming forth. The affidavits they submitted tell very similar stories as what was on the video in Georgia. But of course, even video evidence to a democrat is not real evidence and “non-credible”.

    2. @Bob Charlie for one I’m not a democrat and for 2 they have already lied and been caught in lies I know for a fact 3 of them was. Yes it does make a difference once in court and someone cross examines them watch how there stories will fall apart. If there is fraud I want them in trouble otherwise we need to move on

    3. @Mark Hartseil yes I know it’s all a hot mess the one girl said she had to delete her social media accounts well that was one lie she told because you can look her up and her profile picture is of her and Rudy so that was a lie she told just imagine all the other lies she told. Also they didn’t want sworn in under oath either I guarantee trump gives them a pardon

    4. @Charles House I never implied any different… I believe Mr. Krebs that the election was fine.
      But he is the man I am referring to. He was specifically asked how many actual paper ballots can be used as a receipt… as physical proof of the voter’s intent. Or words to that effect… He answered “90%”, on camera. He said he was working on getting that to 100%. Doesn’t mean any of the other 10% are in any way compromised, but they do not leave an unbroken paper trail , I guess. That’s what I remember, to be honest, I wasn’t thinking I’d be quizzed about it, so I wasn’t paying attention to every nuance… But, hey, you can look it up if you like. You will find that the words were coming out of his own face. So, in my place, who would you believe? The specialist on TV, or the complete stranger on the internet?! Cheers, Buddy! ;-]

    1. yep GOP has suppressed votes for decades, now they are whining FALSELY about having their votes blocked.

    1. You are so right. I have Trump supporters in my family, and we just have to either tiptoe around politics out about the subject completely. With all that’s going on, that’s hard!!

  1. Very best of luck Mayor Lance Bottoms. You have a huge job on your hands. Hope everyone will wear a mask in Georgia.

    1. It took Kemp half a year to realize that wearing a mask could mitigate COVID-19. Mayor Bottoms talks about it every time she speaks.

  2. Everyone: why haven’t we seen this great healthcare plan ?

    Donald *:Because it’s broken up into eight horcruxes* .

    2. @Kris Keene Do you remember Dr. Fauci, the Director of National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and member of the White House Coronavirus Task Force? Maybe? He’s barely been seen in months. Fauci was the de facto spokesperson during the pandemic…early on. That was until Trump thought that fighting the pandemic would hurt his chances for re-election. Fauci and other leading doctors were muzzled for the most part and their efforts to fight the pandemic were directly undermined by Trump.
      In August, Dr. Scott Atlas…a neuroradiologist, who is not a specialist in infectious diseases, was hired to be Trump’s “advisor” on COVID-19. Trump hired him because Atlas was skeptical of measures to control the virus outbreak and that fit Trump’s re-election path.

    1. @Woody Norris Getting a President in America who is prepared to acknowledge and act on Climate Change, with senate and congressional majorities to enable his program IS crucial in this struggle to save the planet, so yes, strangely perhaps, this election in Georgia is indeed of world importance. Sometimes big things hinge on little changes.

    2. @Squarey Square The election in Georgia isn’t of world importance. Being a little dramatic aren’t you?

  3. It’s a mask, not a medieval torture device. If even 75% of deniers wear a mask, hundreds or maybe thousands of lives could be saved.
    Good luck, Madam Mayor.

    1. @orange70383 yeah, sure. Neither do I. But I don’t live in your country. By now, it’s so widespread in your country, not wearing a mask at this point is just plain stupid if you can’t keep social distance. otherwise those masks are pretty useless. People die in your hospitals of Covid, denying it with their last breath 100.000 hospitalised. 3000 deaths this day and 210.000 infected and no hint of slowing down. Oh wait: did anyone tell you, you could die because there is no room in the ICU when you get a car accident because it’s full of covid patients? Or you spread it to someone who has a lower survival rate? But who cares.

    2. They claim it is a matter of freedom. But what good is your freedom when they are riding you around in the back of a hearse?

    4. @orange70383 tell that to everyone who has lost there loved ones and people are still dying. Have some compassion just because trump doesn’t show it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t

    1. @Sheep #5491 Georgia Secretary of State investigators went over the video today minute-by-minute no irregularities. Do your research before posting

    2. @Stephen Farmer : You’re lying outright. And everyone knows it. I have no problem saying so because I know you can’t back it up. State election law requires that observers be present when ballots are counted. You should familiarize yourself with the state election laws before posting further.

    1. @Joe Deus Dr Fauci has been completely consistent in his recommendations…while Trump was championing a doctor who said it came from aliens

    2. @Larry Clem so, now it’s my fault? I’m asinine?

      Dr. Fauci, while educated and experienced is 1 of many Drs with an opinion on the matter. To claim that he is the only expert who is all knowing falls short. There are other expert virologists who have opposed Dr. Fauci’s opinions on response and effectivity. I find it highly unlikely that Dr. Fauci is correct 100% of the time and that he and only he somehow has the answer to the virus.

      Your attack on me is simply childish at best. To claim that no one else should be held accountability is tantamount to repeating this pandemic in the future because we stopped looking for where the weak spots in our response, policies, and readiness truly are in effectivity. Shouldn’t we take a fearless inventory of our response and readiness? Or…..is blaming 1 man going to prevent another pandemic in the future?

      Your hatred of the rotund tangerine has led you to believe that if anyone doesn’t agree with you in precise measure then they are the enemy. Us vs. Them. You are either with us or against us. Congratulations, you have become the reflection in Trumps mirror.

    3. @Joe Deus it is your fault for being misinformed. The virus and ignorance are the enemies. Hatred is not how I feel about Trump…appalled at his incompetence. And you are the reflection of Trump’s witch doctor.

    1. Right off Wikipedia – Peaceful, calm and gentle, blue has tremendous power to manage stress. It’s a very soothing color that helps calm your mind, slow down your heart rate, lower your blood pressure and reduce anxiety. Blue is believed to have a cooling and astringent effect.

  4. This Georgia girl is voting blue!!!!!!! C’mon Georgia…help ditch Mitch… let’s do what Kentucky failed to do for America.

    1. @Bill I have not heard an individual named in this fraud conspiracy besides Hugo Chavez and he has been dead for 7 years. My conspiracy theory is that they won’t accuse any individuals because they are afraid of being sued for slander.

  5. Spite and ignorance is the only thing that’s on the GOP platform. Not solutions or reasonable ideas. Spite and ignorance.

    1. Georgian white , people of color vote vote vote vote for the two
      To make change in the Senate vote Democrat that will move the GRIM REAPER Mitch McConnell if not no change in Washington.

    2. Ain’t that the blessed, unadulterated, unvarnished truth. They had the temerity not to present a party platform. And said their platform was anything that came out of Donald Trump’s mouth like it was Holy Writ.

    3. @Edward Palmore
      The so called pro lifers, Republican politicians, has blood on their hands and use religion as a prop to do evil.
      T**** certainly has done so but his followers behave as if he’s the “chosen one” while he believes he actually is that and the RNC just twiddled their thumbs.
      I can’t stop SMH.

    1. She’s better looking than me, but we still could be sisters. LOL (I even used to wear my hair short just like hers).

  6. The Toddler’s goin’ down to Georgia, lookin’ for an election to steal
    He’ll bully and whine, and keep up his lyin’, ’cause he thinks that’s the art of the deal

  7. Getting Moscow Mitch out of his Leader’s position would be a positive step toward getting relief out to hurting Americans.

    1. @Dawn Bolton I have been told by family and friends who live in Kentucky that Mitch wins because his pockets run extremely deep it’s definitely not because he gets the most votes Kentucky is where fraud occurred

    2. For sure, 100%. The only way Dems take the power from Mitch is if we vote or take the two senate seats in Georgia. Let’s vote for Ossoff and Warnock.

  8. The fact that maga membership die from covid and their dying words are. “It’s not covid it’s lung cancer or some other weird lung related disease!” Is quite simply INSANE.
