  1. You wish he understood – anything.
    Perhaps this must turn out to become Darwin’s revenge on the deplorables?
    At this point it doesnt seem like a stretch that he does not want tests to be widely available to keep “the number low” and somehow hopes the inevitable deaths will not be attributed to this virus and his mishandling of it? It sure sounds like a crazy conspiracy theory, but this is not beyond this guy… its just not.

  2. And HE’S a senior citizen!

  3. What the President has done to fight the coronavirus:
    Praised himself
    Called it a hoax
    Blamed Obama
    Worn a silly hat
    Muzzled the experts
    Announced it contained
    Told the sick to go to work
    Downplayed its seriousness
    Shown concern for the stock market
    Blamed the Democrats..
    Played a few rounds of golf

    “If he wasn’t President, he’d be blaming whoever was President.”

    • That’s all he’s done for the last 3 years! Examples….
      Where is your heath care? Where is your tax cut? Where has ANY infrastructure improvements been made? Where is that wall, and why hasn’t Mexico paid for it? Where are the thousands of coal and steel jobs that were coming back? He’s nothing more than a carnival barker, and not even good at that

      I don’t see where his quickness in cutting off all physical contact with China was an error, (especially since this is costing a world of money). He is not downplaying anything : he is simply trying to avoid panic. He has just severed any trips from Europe which is far worse than we are, and having lived in France for more thank 30 years and up on what’s going on there, I can assure you that you’d rather be here than over there !!!

    • @Jesus is KING perhaps you can edit your comment when you sober up?

      @Kaizaro123 lol sorry to say it Twitter and what people say on it doesn’t mean a thing and definitely shouldn’t be where your getting your news and info ha

    • Very tru

    I’m pretty certain he doesn’t understand what’s going on with this. Still, even if he does understand, I don’t think he cares unless it impacts him.

    • Alan Brookes | March 10, 2020 at 6:21 PM | Reply

      Sandra Whitlock , if your citizens who can’t afford healthcare gets this virus, the spread will accelerate in the US!

    • Exactly. Trumps malignant narcissism prevents any empathy unless it is for public perception. I dont think he can even fake it well without it looking like gaslighting.

    • Ronald Triumph | March 10, 2020 at 7:43 PM | Reply

      ok so what would be your solution???

    • Sandra Whitlock | March 10, 2020 at 8:10 PM | Reply

      @Alan Brookes hi. Yeah I know. I am one of those citizens. I’m elderly and with with underlying conditions thant make one more likely to have a bad outcome from this. He just doesn’t care. That is an absolutely foreign concept to him. The only thing that motivates him is money.

    • Ronald Triumph To deal with the outbreak with clarity as promptly and efficiently as other countries.
      America has no idea of the extent of this epidemic because Trump has not rolled out tests for those who should get them.

  5. Trumpists should try telling the families of folks who died from the coronavirus in Washington and Florida the coronavirus is a hoax.

  6. My grandkids are afraid to come see me(I’m sick)because they even know how serious this virus is. And they are afraid that I could catch it an die.
    Anyone out there that is a grandparent knows how much it hurts not to be able to hold and be around your grandkids!!!
    This may sound silly but…
    They are the wind beneath my wings, they keep me going!!!

    • INTEL I wouldn’t say that quite yet this virus is spreading like wildfire. I’m in Seattle and it’s spreading like crazy. I’m thinking it’s airborne how quickly it’s spreading🤦‍♀️

    • Dave Ponsford | March 11, 2020 at 5:51 AM | Reply

      INTEL can you give your qualifications in making such a statement. How many unconfirmed cases have you interacted with? The number of confirmed cases is rising quickly, so people should ignore your nonsense.

    • Those of us who don’t have any have to keep going too. And with the world situation and future being what it is, I sleep better not having any. Climate change will and cannot be stopped.

    • Dave Ponsford 🖕

    • Me too. I’m so sad inside. I miss my grandson. They are my second reason for getting up. In the morning. God’s Love is the First.

  7. please god let trump and pence catch this “hoax” and succumb to it so nancy can be president.

    • Today, 3/11/20 – he announced that he’s holding a rally in WI next week.


    • Don’t forget to include everyone else in their disgusting families. I can’t wait for Don Jr. In a casket.

    • Andrew Sousa | March 12, 2020 at 3:47 AM | Reply

      @Joel Schmidt Nope. There are two sides. Republican and Democrat. You can be whatever you want in between. Point is, you will HAVE to lean at least slightly toward one side or the other. That one guy that gets 1 vote won’t win. So we have to choose a side. This time its Trump for the republicans, and Bernie/Biden for the Democrats. Who will you choose?

      You are not only Foof y crazy, but a sick puppy !

    Drive through test centers is by far the most efficient way of testing the general working population.

    • Donald tDUMP refused to do more testing because HE WANTS THE NUMBERS TO STAY LOW.The freaking moron is more concerned with the stock market than the wellbeing of Americans.

    • David Cadman | March 12, 2020 at 2:48 PM | Reply

      Buttt… But, But freedom, What About Our FREEDOMS.

      Not to mention, those that don’t drive. What will it cost the consumer. How will the Insurance Executives get their bonus’s in December. Come on, get real. No ONE will want to support this, as it is giving FREE HEALTH CARE that the Tax payer will pick up the tab for. Stealin’ Money From My Pocket. NO WAY!! Let them lazy sick people die. I’ll be fine, cough, cough. /snark

  9. do be fair… Rafael “Ted” Cruz has been quarantined by people for a long time… no one likes you, Rafael!

  10. Trump is holding back tests because the TRUE numbers will affect his reelection………..HE COULD CARE LESS ABOUT THE PEOPLE ONLY HIMSELF……

  11. “What’s science dad?”
    “I don’t know son. we’re republicans”

  12. it is a pandemic !!

    “A pandemic is the term used to describe the spread of a human disease across countries and “”continents””, in the narrower sense the spread of an infectious disease.”

  13. You lost me at “Donald Trump Understands.”
    Donald Trump doesn’t understand how an umbrella works… COME ON!

    • Harold Moore Vote for whom ever you want I already have my mind made up no debate here

      @rose james – Trump has an STD (he’s patient ZERO), aka #TDS, and is passing it to his supporters via ‘grabbing them by the p***sy’ because they LET him do it, as he stated.
      He is their “chosen one” and can do no wrong.
      He can defraud veterans (paid $2M and his children were required to take MANDATORY charity training) – FAKE NEWS!
      He can defraud students (Trump University – Paid $25M) – FAKE NEWS!
      He can lie pathologically (Largest EC win since Reagan/Didn’t rain on his inauguration, etc, etc, etc) – FAKE NEWS!
      This is the new reality of #TrumpFukistan!

  14. Matt “funny guy” Gas-mask Gaetz, put in quarantine on Air-Force 1, too funny Matthew.

    • Matteo Watteo | March 11, 2020 at 1:14 PM | Reply

      Trump should name Matt Gaetz ambassador to Wuhan.

    • MAGGIE LEONARD | March 11, 2020 at 10:35 PM | Reply

      Anyone poking fun of this DEADLY VIRUS???
      IS not funny at all!!!
      Tell all those who died how Funny it is???

    • Matteo Watteo | March 11, 2020 at 10:53 PM | Reply

      @MAGGIE LEONARD I cant if they’re dead. Seriously Maggie, you’re right. It’s an extremely important matter. I’m almost 60, have heart disease. COPD, diabetes and hyper tension. I’m very concerned.

    • Cosimo Kramarawicz | March 12, 2020 at 8:17 AM | Reply

      Spoiled child Matt Gaetz should die from the flu.

    • You think he sat and had a chat with the fat one? Shook hands with him? Both of them having a great big laugh about the big virus hoax and gaetz spitting and coughing all over trump? I think that’s exactly what happened, and that’s why trump froze at the press gathering when they asked him if he’d been tested because he’s been exposed – his brain short-wired and fused and he ran away.

  15. When SWITZERLAND took action on this, that’s when I realized how serious it was.

    • Remimi2017 della Torre-Torriani | March 11, 2020 at 9:05 AM | Reply

      I am Swiss born American, but the Swiss so far have still not allowed Ticino Canton to shut borders to Italy. 70,000 workers that commute from Italy to Switzerland daily, are still allowed in and out. If you look at the cases vs. the low Population of Switzerland compared to Thailand with 53 cases ( 32 healed and home) with 70 Millions, then the Swiss did not do their great job yet. But I am confident it will happen. In fact we are efficient people.

    • David Cadman | March 12, 2020 at 2:43 PM | Reply

      You are late to the party HP sauce. I’ve been on this from late December. I knew it was serious in January when China went into quarantine a whole province / state.

    Trump: The only president in the history of the United States that put his poll numbers and reelection above the health of the nation.

    • He legit said this is like the flu….. how can you not see we need to focus on the flu every year not just when it gets bad. And by the way the flu kills 250,000 to 650,000 a year every year. Coronavirus be like I’m big and bad…. flu be like hold my beer

    • Pip Byrne probably supporting him because he’s bringing most of them home lol

    • Martin Craig you do realize that if the economy fails during a flu season or virus outbreak it’s not good right? If all kids stay home less nurses and hospital workers can be at work….. forget that people are saying don’t go to work in general so doctors???????? Also what about poor people less food less healthy things does not make your immune system better. I’m sad that I’m a dummy and I can see the obvious more than university kids

    • Martin Craig you sir after this goes away in a few months need to evaluate your life and probably try not to be on social media commenting spreading stupidity

    • Sad but tru

  17. Gee, appears that dummy, Donald, is doubling down on his dumb-down! Just when you thought it really couldn’t get any dumber!

  18. monkeymanxxl | March 10, 2020 at 2:01 PM | Reply

    Wouldn’t it be something if the coronavirus killed Satan‘s number one man on earth. It would be like the devil himself hates Trump

  19. “The greatest country on the face of the earth.” Joe Scarborough
    Sometimes I can’t believe you people actually talk like this. It’s ridiculous. American self importance is cringy.

    • Anyone who thinks America is the greatest country on earth has clearly never been to Denmark.

    • The pld pussie grabbin. S. O. Bb is goin down. 2020 dump fat ars trump.

    • Sandy Pomerleau | March 11, 2020 at 7:13 PM | Reply

      evilcatlady ,
      Please, all Americans don’t talk like that. It would be as stupid as thinking all Russian were as corrupt and silly as Putin. Trump is just a really nasty speed bump. Our Constitution is still a good idea but obviously has some kinks to work out.
      Trump has revealed the worst parts of our society and that sickness seems to be rearing it’s ugly head everywhere in this world. I pray it can be contained.

  20. Sadly, Joe, the people that need to hear this, aren’t listening to you. They are busy with Faux news.

    • @toney ingram Their loss.

    • toney ingram | March 12, 2020 at 3:13 AM | Reply

      @Pete fl I know

    • @toney ingram I’ve seen a couple of clips of seniors, probably Trump supporters, saying they don’t believe there’s a pandemic and saying the virus is bogus. Their loss may be their last one, but what can you do.

    • They should all absolutely believe fox – fake news! All of them ought to go to a great big rally, lots and lots of huge rallies. trump and his adult kids should all be there at every single one. All of them should shake hands with everyone – go one better – all of them ought to spit on their hands and then shake hands. Show those dems.

    • +Paper ST. Like these 2 twits aren’t slanted paid for presstitutes , you need to grow at least one brain cell pinhead .
