      Thomas Headley Listen to 30 seconds past “no responsibility” or not. You sound like you believe the propaganda of the MSM. I don’t really care what you want or don’t want to believe. President Trump will be re-elected in Nov..

    • Eagle Eyes Yes—and now we will reap the whirlwind.

      Jim Battersbee I whole heartedly agree. The myth of the American Dream is that everyone has equal OPPORTUNITY. That is not true and you more see the effects of white supremacy and Christian Nationalism masquerading as populism. The brown slides and dark skinned people, the economically poor, the disenfranchised (like the formerly incarcerated) and the least able to rise up are kept in their place. Do not be fooled, this is about power and money, nothing else.

  4. Trump actually tried to con the coronavirus into thinking that it wasn’t real, so that maybe it would just magically disappear. I think he’s finally realizing that he can’t gaslight a virus the same way he gaslights his cultists.

      Dominique Roydor liberals didn’t reference Bush during Obama. Get out of here with that whataboutism stuff.

      Charles L Jones he never said Douglas was still alive. “Frederick Douglass is an example of somebody who’s done an amazing job.” That’s what he said. Just like one could say George Washington is someone whose done amazing job crafting our path to independence. Biden thinks he’s running for Senate and his wife is his sister. Oh he said instead of did oh nooooo. Biden thinks half the US population died from gun violence. Need I go on?

      T J Biden likes to touch young girls. Smelling them and rubbing their shoulder. A massage or two. He’s a weirdo.

      Samurai Jack no just not voting for someone with dementia. At least Trump believes his lies. Biden probably believes it’s 1985 and the soviets are on the March.

      @Sub Optimal , Exactly. They never report news about Russia or its economy. They only mention them when they “try” to link Trump.

    • @Dave Schultz
      Re: “They never report news about Russia or its economy. They only mention them when they “try” to link Trump.”
      No-one linked Trump to Russia, that is apart from Trump and Russia and the evidence. Russia was of course, keen on Trump because Trump wasn’t patriotic, was eager to be corrupted and doesn’t care about the US, only money and power. True US patriots are not bribable, which is why the Russians didn’t want a Democrat President. The GOP is currently an anti-American, pro-Russia political party. I cite: Moscow Mitch & Trumpski.
      That’s almost certainly why In 2008, Donald Trump sold a $40 Million Palm Beach mansion to Russian oligarch Dmitry Rybolovlev for the record price of $95 million, $13 million more than the most expensive Palm Beach mansion sale up to that moment.
      The transaction is newsworthy again as new questions surround contacts between members of Trump’s administration and Russian government officials.

      Everblue Freediving well said!

  8. Don’t cult leaders do that too? Make you think they are the only one that can be believed?

    • Usually while cutting your dietary intake which makes you more succeptable to brainwashing. Hey look Trump made school food unhealthy again, and cut inspectors from the FDA who provided oversight of food companies to make sure their products were safe…

    • The FDA and food inspectors (and drug inspectors and, face it, competent architecture inspectors) were outnumbered by the demands of the system as it was! And now today!…. We’re being poisoned with everything from hormones to fatten the animals up…to actual poison! (usually residue from cleaning the blades)…they’re overworked!

    • Divine Feminine Rising | March 15, 2020 at 2:10 PM | Reply

      Yep. Exactly. What we have witnessed (and FOX is complicit) is the systematic brainwashing of a good number of American people. That Evangelicals believe he is a moral and religious person in spite of clear facts to the contrary, tells you all you need to know about how effective the brainwashing has been. Now people will die for it, no so much unlike Jim Jones, et al.

  9. Trump’s GOP is unfit for public office. For the American’s who survive this pandemic, vote out every single Republican.

  10. Jon Meacham is right. I don’t like Biden but as an alternative to the orange clown I’ll take him.

    • @janewright315 – “tRump is barely any better than Putin. Combine it with the fact that tRump’s cult is asleep and think that their problems are solved, tRump will continue Putin’s work with no republiKKKlans noticing or protesting. No, tRump is no better than Putin.”

    • Raydensheraj | March 16, 2020 at 2:48 PM | Reply

      @J Z Biden can’t even finish a sentence without mumbling. The debate clearly showed that Biden will never be President.

    • Raydensheraj I’ll take a mumble over a liar any day!

    • @Raydensheraj – “Biden is articulate and presidential. The debate clearly showed that Biden will be our next President.”

    • I’d prefer a moldy english muffin for President above the orange menace tRump any day!

  11. “We have met the enemy and he is us!” The Trump-Recession is entirely due to his ineptitude, ignorance and corruption. Trump is the Covid-19 of the market.

  12. Trump and his minions have the audacity blaming China for the outbreak to deflect the fact of their own incompetence is really troubling me …seriously, anyone who still believes in Trump is diseased.

      @Lawrence DeHarde : I’ve tried to wake people up, but Trump is a powerful drug.

    • @Joe Della Selva
      Re: “I think the administration is doing the best with the hand they were dealt.”
      Nope. The facts speak unequivocally and they do not support your view.
      a) The Trump administration disbanded the U.S. pandemic response team in 2018. That same year, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) was forced to slash its efforts to prevent global disease outbreak by 80% as its funding for the program began to run out. The agency, at the time, opted to focus on 10 priority countries and scale back in others, including China.
      b) The Trump Administration refused Coronavirus tests from WHO and waited weeks for the CDC to produce a faulty test. Availability of tests was and remains very limited. During this time the virus was spreading silently in the community, for weeks, perhaps as long as six-weeks. This was determined retrospectively by sequencing the virus in two apparently unlinked patients infected with the virus possessing the same rare mutation.

    • ​@Joe Della Selva
      Re: “Trumps a dope” Agreed, wholeheartedly.
      Re: “but there are good competent persons in the administration.” – But fewer competent persons remain virtually every day. Trump clearly does not value science or experts. Dunning-Kruger effect poster-child Trump thinks that he’s a world expert, except he’s a world-class dunderhead (because his ignorance is very extensive). It’s fairly obvious that Trump prefers yes-men loyal to him over genuine competence with world-class expertise. Being competent and disagreeing with Trump (especially in public) can and has get one fired. Making a donation to Trump’s re-election campaign is a fast-track for an incompetent to reach a position that they cannot possibly fill competently.

    The trump cultists still only believe in trump’s alternate facts and realities.

    • @Hildebeast Clinton The media has not called him Hitler; at most they’ve shown the many, many legitimate ways that he is following Hitler’s footsteps. If you still can’t see what he is, try this: just imagine if you can that Trump is exactly the corrupt, ignorant, narcissistic, petty tyrant that everyone else sees. Just for pretend. What, if anything, would he say or do differently from what he’s already done?

    • Hildebeast Clinton Fake is all the nasty divisive Trump. He is attacked because he attacks. Wake up to the truth please
