  3. Vietnam War and Afghanistan war combined together had less deaths than Coronavirus as of today of 138000.

    • America is the third largest population in the world . Only China and India have larger populations. We are going to have a significant amount of deaths due to CoV-2. The US has 52.6 million elderly over age 65. Its a cruel disease that takes the infirm. Have some perspective about numbers.

      @The new normal isn’t normal Watching this is like watching a Baghdad Bob rerun. What’s different this time is we have SO MUCH evidence of the Fauci HOAX going back decades. And it includes the people behind the Vietnam war perpetrators. Wonder who runs @MSNBC?

      @Sean M
      Why is that funny to you?
      Approaching 140,000 dead, 3.5 million cases, hospitals overwhelmed in five months
      I see nothing funny about that.

    • Korean War – U.S Military Deaths = 36,000 +, Vietnam U.S. Military Deaths = 58,000 +, All other U.S. Military Deaths in conflict zones since Vietnam = 7,800 + . This is a lot of our boys and girls killed, more than 100,000 in 2 generations. In less than 5 months, 137,000 more Americans have died from the preventable/controllable COVID-19 inside our borders. Wrap your head around the numbers. I understand that tRolls must tRoll, but you can’t change reality any more than you can project a gas-lighting TUPoS into anything other than rejection, dismissal, and disgrace in the coming months.

    Country needs Transparency

  7. The DNC is what responsible leadership looks like. Putting the people first. Meanwhile, Trump and republicans are gearing up to place people into a coronavirus pressure cooker in Jacksonville Florida.

  8. The only reason republicans are having a convention is because Trump NEEDS the ego fix. It’s the only reason he ran for President in the first place.

    Trump’s pandemic response

    January 22: “We have it totally under control. It’s one person coming in from China. It’s going to be just fine.”

    February 2: “We pretty much shut it down coming in from China.”

    February 24: “The Coronavirus is very much under control in the USA… Stock Market starting to look very good to me!”

    February 25: “CDC and my Administration are doing a GREAT job of handling Coronavirus.”

    February 25: “I think that’s a problem that’s going to go away… They have studied it. They know very much. In fact, we’re very close to a vaccine.”

    February 26: “The 15 (cases in the US) within a couple of days is going to be down to close to zero.”

    February 26: “We’re going very substantially down, not up.”

    February 27: “One day it’s like a miracle, it will disappear.”

    February 28: “We’re ordering a lot of supplies. We’re ordering a lot of, uh, elements that frankly we wouldn’t be ordering unless it was something like this. But we’re ordering a lot of different elements of medical.”

    Feb 29 :” It’s a democratic hoax. ”

    March 2: “You take a solid flu vaccine, you don’t think that could have an impact, or much of an impact, on corona?”

    March 2: “A lot of things are happening, a lot of very exciting things are happening and they’re happening very rapidly.”

    March 4: “If we have thousands or hundreds of thousands of people that get better just by, you know, sitting around and even going to work — some of them go to work, but they get better.”

    March 5: “I NEVER said people that are feeling sick should go to work.”

    March 5: “The United States… has, as of now, only 129 cases… and 11 deaths. We are working very hard to keep these numbers as low as possible!”

    March 6: “I think we’re doing a really good job in this country at keeping it down… a tremendous job at keeping it down.”

    March 6: “Anybody right now, and yesterday, anybody that needs a test gets a test. They’re there. And the tests are beautiful…. the tests are all perfect like the letter was perfect. The transcription was perfect. Right? This was not as perfect as that but pretty good.”

    March 6: “I like this stuff. I really get it. People are surprised that I understand it… Every one of these doctors said, ‘How do you know so much about this?’ Maybe I have a natural ability. Maybe I should have done that instead of running for president.”

    March 6: “I don’t need to have the numbers double because of one ship that wasn’t our fault.”

    March 8: “We have a perfectly coordinated and fine tuned plan at the White House for our attack on CoronaVirus.”

    March 9: “This blindsided the world.”

    March 13: State of emergency

    ) The utter unpreparedness of the United States for a pandemic

    ) Disbanding the pandemic response office in 2018

    ) The loss of stockpiled respirators because the federal government let maintenance contracts lapse in 2018

    ) The failure to store sufficient protective medical gear in the national arsenal

    ) That states are bidding against each other for equipment, paying many times the retail price for things like masks and ventilators

    ) Travelers abroad being summoned home and forced to stand for hours in densely packed crowded airports alongside infected people

    ) TEN WEEKS of insistence to the entire country that the coronavirus is a harmless flu that would miraculously go away on its own

    ) The refusal of red-state governors to act promptly

    ) The failure to close Florida and Gulf Coast beaches until late March

    ) Holding daily “briefings” where he lies about the virus, boasts about how “great” he’s handled it, and baselessly attacks journalists

    ) Being incapable of valuing American lives over the revenue of his own properties or his own chances of winning reelection

    ) Pushing untested non-FDA approved drugs as potential “cures” already resulting in at least one American’s DEATH who didn’t even have COVID-19

    ) Refusing tests when they were offered to us in FEBRUARY so he could have companies he has ties to manufacture tests that he could profit off of

    ) Being incapable of accepting responsibility; showing empathy; or offering ANY condolences to those who lost loved ones

    ) Repeatedly blaming others for his own failures. Saying “impeachment distracted him” when he spent all of January, February and early March golfing and holding rallies with thousands of people in attendance (each event its own PUBLIC HEALTH HAZARD).

    ) Continuing to call the virus “a Democratic hoax” until LATE FEBRUARY

    ) Showing no awareness of or regard for his responsibility as President to PROTECT AMERICAN LIVES

    ) Continuing to sell millions of tons of PPE to other countries until EARLY MARCH

    ) Putting uniquely UNQUALIFIED people in charge of our federal response to this crisis like Mike Pence and Jared Kushner—who have NO RELEVANT KNOWLEDGE, EDUCATION, OR EXPERIENCE—and can’t even grasp that the federal stockpile of medical equipment is for THE UNITED STATES

    ) Lying about “taking early action in restricting travel to and from China,” which was never done and all experts agree would have made little to no difference at that point because the virus was already present and spreading in the U.S.

    ) Repeatedly lying about the availability and frequency of testing. Saying “everyone who needs a test gets a test” while we are still short MILLIONS OF TESTS, which Pence promised would be available almost a month ago and still haven’t been produced.

    ) Telling the American people we must “reopen the economy” because “the cure can’t be worse than the disease,” which not only puts economic success above American lives, it ignores the fact that the death toll of reopening everything prematurely would be WORSE for the economy.

    ) Ignoring EVERY SINGLE PAGE of the pandemic response playbook that the Obama administration left for Trump’s team, which stressed:
    —Pandemics can start ANYWHERE/don’t respect borders
    —Science MUST GUIDE decisions
    —Federal/State collaboration is KEY

    ) The playbook also stressed the CRITICAL IMPORTANCE of enacting social distancing measures AS EARLY AS POSSIBLE. “When it comes to pandemics, days—and even hours—can be the difference between saving thousands of lives.” Trump did NOTHING for 75 DAYS

    • You are exposing tRolls to a non-FAUXian news feed of reality. There ought to be laws against such cruelty.

    Trumps Klan rallies are being derailed by the universal karma for all the corruption by him, his administration and GOP enablers.

  12. 25 Republican State Governors REFUSE to mandate MASKS. They will try their best to STOP MAIL IN BALLOTS. Everyone Must order them NOW!

  13. Let the RNC have their Zombie Convention. “Brains, we need brains.”
    No press should sacrifice their lives to report about it.

  14. I have a vision of a political cartoon where there will be a literal pile of a quarter of a million dead bodies. At first I thought this pile should be on the White House lawn, but I do not think there is enough surface area to contain the pile without burying the White House completely. Perhaps the pile ought to be on the National Mall with the Washington Monument and the Lincoln Memorial only half covered by the bodies of the COVID-19 victims.

  15. Let the RNC go ahead, it will clean out a lot of old white guys who control the GOP before the election. I couldn’t wish it upon a Finer Group of Upstanding Citizens.

  16. It’s important because she’s black

  17. NEVER FORGET! Trump has foreign countries willing to help him get re elected

    No covid 19 precautions taken and lockdown relaxed too early, in the first place.

  19. Remember and don’t forget with every adversity that comes a seed with a greater equivalent!!

    If YouTube can hold a graduation celebration with the Obamas and BTS, I think the DNC can hold an American convention.
