    It’s almost like trump skated through life on daddy’s checkbook and when faced with a crisis of any kind, he shows his ignorance.

    • When his father was alive, he would bail Donald out. Dad’s gone now and we’re stuck with his mess.

    • He skated through the last 3 years economically riding Obama’s coattails, just like he rode his daddy’s coattails economically his entire life. But now he’s ruined the Obama economy in record time, and we will all pay for it. Exceot the rich of course, Their socialist bailouts have already begun.

    • His mistake is thinking his blustering of “having the best people” will calm us…just the opposite. It may be better for all of us, Republicans and Democrats and the rest if he just shuts up and for once in his life let the experts (the real experts) do their jobs. We may just get out of this with less deaths. Yeah, that will never happen. To our country’s misfortune.

    • @Margaret Nicol Sadly, he won’t.

    Wonder how many TSA screeners have tested positive and passed it on to these hapless travelers.

    Without a doubt, the most incompetent, corrupt administration in US history

  4. This prez and his Administration will go down in history as one of the all-time biggest cluster F’s ever.

    • Well said.

    • Oh Aaaaannd that it didn’t occur to them that the Dr. Was the acting president of the United States Well, once the white house briefing started😁.
      Hail to the mighty Dr. Fauci.
      Don’t think its hit ’em yet 😂

  5. They were better off staying in Europe in their hotel rooms.

    • Nancy Jay the ban was never on permanent residents or citizens.

    • @Alison People in another country can get the virus. I am an American living in the UK as a permanent resident. I have family in the States, but I get conflicting information from the Embassy about my ability to travel. I have a brother who is in long term care, and should he die (compromised immune system and he is 62), nobody is sure if I would be allowed in the US.

    • Nancy I’m so sorry to hear that. My initial reference is in response to the congestion at the airport. I’m pretty sure, if you were able to fly, that the airport wouldn’t be as packed as it was last week. Nonetheless let’s keep each other in prayer and hunker down to try to ride out this storm in faith. Stay strong.

    • 72 hours was short of appropriate notice, with no clarity on details. U.S. citizens should have no problem regardless returning home. I returned from Vietnam (5 years) Tuesday, the 17th through OHare, and it was my quickest clearing of U.S. customs in my life. Never took my temperature, nor ask for my health declaration form I filled out transiting in Qatar. I came from 2 low risk areas, but Qatar to OHare, I have no idea who I was traveling with. They went through customs similar to me.

    • @Alison Correct, and they should have made that very clear to the public and media to relay information.

  6. I’m sure he’s gonna say “Obama restrictions prohibited me from allowing this to happen.” This man is evil.

    • Poor snowflakes have got TDS and it’s much worse than the Bat Flu… poor things!

    • @Naima Alicassim Wow. And I was being sarcastic. This man really is crazy. And there’s a lot of idiots who rally behind him. Just sickening.

      @Phill Davis name calling is the what you say when you’ve got nothing left to argue with.

      @glkmee22 It’s true my friend. Brain washed unfortunately.

    • glkmee22 2 white guys at the top of the ticket. Rich “super” delegates suppressing your vote. Yeah how long pelosi Biden and Sanders in Congress for? You guys are kind of a joke to be honest

  7. That’s donny, shooting from his enormous hips. Misfiring with his tiny hands

    I wonder what fox news is saying about this? oh yeah – a hoax trying to hurt the president! Yes – let’s hurt him by just showing his total inadequacy.

    • @Deborah Hoffman Of course they did. When Obama and Hillary were starting the Korean war and creating new recipies for tasty dishes where you eat live kittens, the virus was merely a byproduct of their condiment research. Meanwhile, Pelosi and Schiff worked their puppy farm to sell the little pupsters to Montgomery Burns for his puppy pelt vest. Then they invented tornados.

    • @YTC Management That right, you tell ’em. Christmas cards for Putin, a lovely fruit basket for Kim Jong un, and let us fondly remember Jack the Ripper, Hitler and Mussolini. How unfair to hate your orange balloon animal when all he is doing is promoting hatred, bigotry, robbing the taxpayers blind, lying to the American public, etc. Even traitorous lunatics need love.

    • You should read the comments under the FOX news clips, the Trump zombies are praising him and saying how wonderful he is doing controlling the situation. It’s honestly scary to know people like that exist.

    • @Angela Siegfried he did a 180

    • @YTC Management why? He hasn’t

  9. “Do something now?!?!?!?” THIS STUPID ANMINSTRATION KNEW ABOUT THIS 4 MONTHS AGO!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • @Keith Mcmorrow well Ben Rhodes said he did, publically!
      And he was one of their bosses as Natioan Security Advisor Secretary (the head bunch)

    • Keith Mcmorrow | March 24, 2020 at 5:57 AM | Reply

      @jas113607 first of all , nothing morning blow and mika say are true . I dont believe anything on these leftist news sites.

    • Keith Mcmorrow | March 24, 2020 at 8:30 AM | Reply

      @jas113607 yea, nsc leakers who cant be trusted .lol ive researched it over and over , its lies, actually its been funded more than ever b4. Just leftist smears that all come out as lies in the end. How many ” bombshells” do you need b4 you realize that they are nothing . Every single one has been a lie. Hillary didnt buy the dossier , complete lie.
      Avenati had the evidence to take trump out, lie. Boltons book,lie, mueller report was the end , lie. Impeachment , lies. People keep believing these millionaires who are paid to say what their boss tells them and thousands of lies later you still bank on every word. They cried wolf for so long, nobody believes anything they say.

    • @Keith Mcmorrow fair enough. You made an observation.

    • @Keith Mcmorrow okay, so please do expound some more Keith.
      It reads like what You’re saying is don’t believe nothing That’s happened these last few years-with either administration?
      Also, ars You saying don’t believe Ben Rhodes either, even though je came out stating he was the last NSA secretary overseeing the pandemic team that Obama’s administration created?

  10. Remember he said it at the rose garden, ” no, no, I don’t take responsibility.” He simply cannot think beyond himself, his needs, his worries, etc. He cannot lead, receive information, or act in a rational mature manner. He cannot plan beyond the time it takes to tweet. You cannot manage a pandemic by tweet and that is precisely how he has run the country for the past three years. We are in deep and the president refuses to believe it.

    • @Genevieve Words That could be closer to the truth than anyone wants it to be.
      When he married Ivana (Soviet Czech) in 1977, the Soviets started to actively seek to enlist him as an American asset.
      At one point they dangled a carrot of a building a hotel across from the Kremlin. He pursued that goal for years. Apparently he failed to perform to KGB expectations so he never got the ok to build.

    • JoeyFiveandDimes | March 17, 2020 at 5:57 PM | Reply

      Tammy A   …………….   THAT was definitive, Freudian, self-own: “I don’t take responsibility AT ALL !” . It should be the Democrats mantra – Put on T-shirts and EVERY ad until election time ( IF he’s still around ….. I think it still possible that Republicans GET RID of their Typhoid Mary for hopes of self-preservation ) . trump = Take credit, spread Blame, NO Responsibility EVER . That’s his whole life story .

    • JoeyFiveandDimes | March 17, 2020 at 6:07 PM | Reply

      Vote him Out   ……………….   Ivana’s family connections in the then Czechoslovakian Secret Service ( KGB satellite ) got their hooks in him . Their Ops in Bratva eliminated older brother and 1st heir Freddie trump Jr. … and made it appear to be a suicide . Whether Donnie knew ahead of time or not is speculative . But from then on, he was a sleeper agent .  Ever think how these numbnuts never pause to wonder how ANYONE could go bankrupt SIX TIMES and still come out smelling so sweet – –  a ‘successful’ businessman ? Anyone else would have been in the slammer or fled the country as a fugitive .

      @JoeyFiveandDimes Ahh, learned one. Sounds like you’ve been around the block a few times.

    • Vote him Out | March 17, 2020 at 8:57 PM | Reply

      @JoeyFiveandDimes They did dangle that hotel in red square across from the Kremlin in his face bc he bragged (no surprise) about it at a fund raising dinner in NYC. He & Ivana were newlyweds at the time. He attended charity dinners but never donated. (no surprise there either).

    ” There’s no bank of talent” BECAUSE HE DOESN’T HAVE A BANK OF TALENT. He has ” yes people” who tell him what he wants to hear.

      First rule of business: Select & surround yourself with the best professionals you can afford to hire.
      Second rule of business: Listen to the advice of your hired professionals!!
      Problem is, Trump ran his business as a DICTATORSHIP.
      Why is it that ppl fail to understand that 6 bankruptcies is not “the norm”.
      He did that to cheat his creditors, mortgage holders & sub contractors. Its called fraud. Guess who paid for all 6……

      @Butch Mitch The corrupt Republican Senate gave him a free pass.

      @Butch Mitch He is the freaking president and has the entire government at his fingertips. If not him than who?

    • Danell Williams | March 16, 2020 at 8:08 PM | Reply

      @Dusty Rains I like putin

    • @Dusty Rains tantrump claimed Article Two gave him the power to do whatever he wanted. It should and will hold true for the Democrat President elect after election day 2020 when the shoe will be on the other foot and the gop won’t have a leg to stand on. Expect the antiquated, corrupt electoral college to be disbanded, as easily as tantrump did to the pandemic response team, by a flourish of the new Potus’ pen, as the first order of business immediately after inauguration.

  12. Washington: “I can’t tell a lie”
    Nixon: “I can’t tell the truth”
    Trump: “I can’t tell the difference”

    • theguyisinthailand you are delusional and unintelligible

    • Johnathan Brown 2 white guys at the top of the ticket. Rich “super” delegates suppressing your vote. Yeah how long pelosi Biden and Sanders in Congress for? You guys are kind of the joke to be honest. How long pelosi, shumer, Biden and Sanders been in Congress again?

      I can’t understand why anybody with any sort of iq could vote red ever again, clowns

    • Above All, United Yeah how long were dem leaders in Congress? 40+ years? What a joke you people are. You can never criticize a democrat for anything. Some are so corrupt and so disgusting. It’s really creepy. But I would stack my education, drive and devotion up to yours any day. You and your cult of leftists are small and pathetic. Trump owns you. Always has. Your party owns you. You just sit back and take the fact that rich people in your party are the people that select the old white candidate😂. Hahahaha. Two old white men. Go battle some more ghosts: I’ve never seen a collective group of people more brainwashed than leftists😂🤣

    • @Above All, United I think you answered your own question. Low IQs.

    Tell the truth. “Caught in bad judgment” is the quote. Caught in “incompetence”, would be more accurate. Tell it like it is, eh?

  15. He’s so concerned about the market. And every time he speaks the market tanks.

    • He thinks lowering interest rates can solve everything. If he wasn’t so keen on juicing every single drop from the market by bullying the Fed into keeping the interest rate near zero to begin with, the Fed may have a little more ammunition to ease the market.

    • After today’s massive plunge, almost all the gains made since January 2017 are GONE.

  16. If you think one person in that crowd doesnt have the virus, you’re a fool. All those people pretty much got the virus

    • I passed through OHare Tuesday afternoon, arriving from Vietnam, via Qatar. My fastest custom experience ever re entering U.S.. They never took my temperature, and never ask for health form I filled out in Qatar to enter U.S.. Crazy. 4 days earlier, OHare was chaotic. What a turn around!!!. I did come from 2 low risk areas, but I was flying with people of unknown risk areas.

    I want him to keep on holding those rallies and keep on having all those people at his back when he takes the podium. Keep on gathering them all together, oh wise one.
