  1. Trump: “I wanted to always play it down. I still like playing it down.”

    Trump gave up on trying to fight the coronavirus the same way he gave up on trying to close that umbrella. This is what happens when you have a surrender mon.key posing as a tough guy.

    1. Taking it seriously would have involved stopping or reducing custom into Trump’s accommodation and leisure businesses.
      Seriously, that’s the simple reason why USA is in such a sorry COVID-ridden state.

    1. Please! If you love dictator then Immigrate to the other countries where they don’t have their constitution such as Russia.
      Otherwise your whole life is hectic seriously. Please go away! Bye Bye
      USA has own constitution and we the people respect us constitution.

  2. I wonder how many more people would be alive today if the Commander in Bleach just said from the start that we should all wear masks to slow down the spread?
    But nope, his fragile ego just couldn’t take it. Wah wah.

  3. This aint news. More than half of Americans knew that Trump admin did not care about Covid. He was not even trying to hide the fact.

    1. Don’s Hospitality Empire was gutted by Covid in 2020… Trump’s firings of the 4 top Pentagon officials AFTER Nov. 4th and replacing them with his boys points to strong  evidence of a conspiracy for a criminal trial. We have the D.C. Police Chief held back for 4 HOURS by one of these appointees before the National Guard was allowed to intervene.  We have video of Trump watching the rioting doing nothing. It was planned. Including firing the head of the F.B.I. and replacing him with Mike Flynn, and also installing Flynn as chief of staff, who, as you may recall, asked for martial law after the election. Planned. The problem is how dark you have to think to really get Trump.  He never used or uses the truth as a tool or weapon. Only optics. “It’s a demo hoax” then, “It will all just go away.” This, along with staging rallies with little or no protection, helped caused the deaths of thousands. He used his own supporters as props to keep himself looking “winner”.  Covid was Trump’s gigantic bedbug infestation at Trump Doral. Just pull a clean white sheet over it. Like was done for over 400,000 people.  Now that’s hospitality.  Planned.

  4. If the people of Chicago don’t do anything about BEETLEGUESE, then it’s their fault at how the city turns out…. The governor & mayors run how their state & cities works….

  5. I’m glad you said this Mayor, because I can’t help thinking about this same thing, every day when I see the death toll.
    It didn’t have to be this bad …

  6. Mass negligent homicide. Make leadership ignorance a crime! Punish Republican party for science denial!

  7. What did you expect? taking it seriously would have involved stopping or reducing custom into Trump’s accommodation and leisure businesses.
    Seriously, that’s the simple reason why USA is in such a sorry COVID ridden state.

  8. you wanna talk about the greatest political irony? if trumpy had for even a moment, put the people ahead of himself, been a leader, handled the pandemic well, he might very well have sailed to reelection. but he just couldn’t do it. did not have the capacity to think of others before himself. sad.
