      @Beverly Johnson religious racists

    • @Dondatta Ford That’s not how our democracy works. He is a minority President who won on a technicality.

    Well one thing for sure. He’s the reason we’re in this mess. So sure won’t take his word on anything.

    • Should’ve gotten WHO test like the rest of the world! He must be prosecuted for crimes against humanity for this. But who will police the world’s policeman?

    If you can’t see what is wrong with him there is no hope for you as a human being!

    • @George Layton I have actually been calling him President L. Ron Hubbard for a few months now. It seems to get the point across, although they just get defensive.

    • @Matthew Sigurdson Do I take it that LITERALLY EVERY single government and public health apparatus on the planet is over-reacting? With the possible exceptions of the US, and maybe Brazil, that is…

      I’d love to see your data backing this up. I’ve noticed that even Limbaugh has given up the “it’s just the flu” narrative, for the most part. You must have access to some really hard-to-get information.

      When can we expect a press briefing laying out all your findings, from Dr. Matthew Sigurdson, M.D.?

    • Matthew Sigurdson | March 29, 2020 at 7:16 PM | Reply

      @Mad Phyn well literally nkt every health professional because I know a doctor ehom has been dealing with cases of it and he says that very few have bad symptoms and the ones that died had compromised immune systems that would have most likely died from the flu/cold.

    • @Matthew Sigurdson In large part, that is in line with what the entire medical community has been saying. We knew all of that already.

      However, this virus is far more dangerous than the flu, for several reasons. A mortality rate of 1-3% is quite alarming. It is also more transmissible than the flu, has a longer incubation which makes it easier to spread and harder to track, we have no immunity and are not experienced at making vaccines for this kind of virus, and it may even cause permanent lung damage.

      There are actually two strains floating around, one of which is less deadly and virulent. Maybe your doctor friend has only been dealing with that strain in your area. It still has at least a .5-1% mortality though, which is several times deadlier than the flu.

    • @Americano They need help now, why are you backtracking back to 2015? They need help and the president should support him instead of crying that Cuomo is not being nice to him. PEOPLE ARE DYING

  6. I almost get the feeling that in his mind, if 3 million blue state city folks are dead he could win the popular vote.

  8. If bombs were ventilators everyone in America would have one available.

    He is a narcissistic amoral person. No clue to reality based reasoning.

  10. When you elected a 6 time bankrupt guy to solve your problem ,well you got what you wished for

  11. People are expecting Trump to suddenly be something he has never shown himself to be: an intelligent, informed leader. He can’t sue COVID 19 so he’s all out of moves

  12. Trump is using the supply of ventilators as a “currency” for people to worship him.
    He has done this ALL HIS LIFE one way or another….
    Sad pathetic soul

    • Quid pro donny makes the bigliest deals; praise me and you get what you want/need.

    • @Mike Cooper Sounds exactly like a dictator. He must be learning from his dictator friends like Kim and Putin. Demonize the media: check. Demand praise: check. Deflect blame onto others: check.

    • PU – sad yes, pathetic agreed, soul hmmmm i shall have to respectfully disagree with you. I think he has sold his soul some time ago.

    • What he wants is those governors to beg him non- stop and sing praises like you said. Trump has obviously missed out on love, affection, hugs and attention as a child from his evil momma.

    • A very good description. I watched the “documentary “ on his plane. He came across as a angry lonely old man

    I feel for you Americans. Just so you know Delusional Donnie does NOT know what a ventilator is. I think he is thinking of power generator

  14. It’s terrible that these doctors AND governors are actually having to beg this incompetent moron! 🤬

    • forrest stump | March 28, 2020 at 11:44 PM | Reply

      cuomo should have purchased those 15,000 ventilators as warned by previous admin in 2015. But instead he opted to spend money on NY lottery. stop blaming trump when you dont have any facts.

    • Notta Libhead…I’m tired of people like you. Stop playing the stupid blame game like trump…facts are facts.

  15. Trump’s habitual, vicious ignorance is truly chilling.

    “Profit before lives”…He should be charged with crimes against humanity by the United Nations. As should Mitch McConnell.

  17. I’m so proud and happy of this comment section. I see many that are actually smart enough to know how big of a loser Trump is

  18. Ophelia Gottlieb | March 27, 2020 at 3:42 PM | Reply

    Well…America wanted a reality show host for a president….we got it. And now all of us are participating contestants in Survivor.

  19. Collect the data: how many people had to die due to lack of necessary equipment ; then use that data to indict and prosecute that imbecile-in-chief 😣
