  1. Can we believe anything that comes from this WH. I can’t .
    Trump couldn’t afford another debate like the last one so who really knows.

  2. If tRump would call it quite and relocate peacefully, it will be great for America

    • relocate to jail…don,t even think about letting him off the hook for his crimes!!!!!!!!! no pardons no mercy!

  3. Donald J Trump is killing this country

      Rosalie smit YOU, girlie, are as DELUSIONAL as TRUMP is! Well, ALL of his uneducated followers are just as delusional, too!

    • @Julie James Not surprising. FB is a gigantic, sticking pile of dog crap. And Zuckerberg is the dog.

    • @Rosalie smit Please tell us how Trump is the best President ever? What has he done?

    • @Night Hawks wholeheartedly agree, proud to say I’ve been Free from FB for over 3 years, what a waste of time

    • @swagedelic I only joined to keep an eye on my son, and the minute he moved out on his own I cancelled. It still astounds me that people literally place great importance on how many FB “friends” they collect, as though that defines their worth.

  4. If you always lie about little things, dont expect people to believe you in big things.

  5. Wear a Mask

    That isn’t a Hard Message to Pass
    Unless your Base is Uneducated
    And Ignorant…..😏

      @David Hale there were shortages of masks and PPE, nurses wearing garbage bags

    • Malcolm Pierce | October 2, 2020 at 1:29 PM | Reply

      Trump had a submissive low self esteem base of morons. They will believe anything he says. Despite him lying his whole life(trump university/cheating on his wife). They don’t care. Submissive to the core.

    • Kathy Jacobsen | October 2, 2020 at 1:37 PM | Reply

      @David Hale you are an ignorant fool. They are in very close contact with those patients for many hours a day. I know this cause I am a front line worker in a hospital. Nothing is 100%, but masks are our best hope.

    • @David Hale The proud infant boys didn’t seem to think it was a “framing of the question” issue. Have you seen their new logo and flags? 😂

    • & the 1%ters

    As Trump said to all the innocent 200,000 dead people – IT IS WHAT IT IS ❗

  7. Pence is claiming he tested negative for Covid but can we really trust him?? Everything coming out of this administration is a fricken LIE!!!!!!!!!!!

    • John Mcsorley | October 2, 2020 at 2:03 PM | Reply

      Very convenient for trump to catch a mild case of covid now after doing so badly in the debate he will have to isolate, so no more debates.

    • Carol Mackowiak | October 2, 2020 at 2:16 PM | Reply

      Lana Kahl 🤔 Wonder if TRUMP has a “special” ventilator in ‘his’ stockpile of 10,000…..that will allow him to TALK while being intubated? 🤔

    • Carol Mackowiak | October 2, 2020 at 2:18 PM | Reply

      tommy One is only ‘negative’ until one is tested ‘positive’! Meaning, a person CAN get infected mere seconds after the test has been performed!

    • Everything Except Shoes | October 2, 2020 at 3:47 PM | Reply

      Yeah, they will tell us if he is positive. They told us about Trump, eventually, so they would tell us about Pence.

    • Trump 🤔 tweeted that “we are All in THIS together” and now it’s a “we” thang and not an “I” thang no more …

  8. Hey donny .. you lost the debate, your taxes were leaked, a new audio tape of Melania came out and you can’t say anything bad about white supremacists … ☝️🤔 Is Donny hissing in his bunker again

    • 🧐Trump catching covid19 is a lie to cover up The encouragement of white supremacists to “stand by” and Trump refused to step down when he loses the election which puts our democracy in peril , don’t forget the facts for the lies

    • Carol Mackowiak | October 2, 2020 at 11:55 AM | Reply

      Bill , We get it! You know how to cut’n’ paste!

  9. eugene Greenbaum | October 2, 2020 at 10:42 AM | Reply

    Trump has the virus? . I feel like I won lotto.

  10. With Trump being a sociopathic liar, he has caused the country and the world to take this “information” of a positive test result with a deer lick sized block of salt.

    • Thank you for that metaphor! SPOT ON!! 🤣

      Thank you. As soon as I heard the news last night, my thought was, who believes him? Or his aides or press secretary or associated sycophants? This is how tRump has poisoned our democratic republic–distrust, mistrust everyone. Just like in authoritarian regimes. Look for major voter suppression, it’s started in Texas, will happen in other stares with Republican governors. They know they are losing…

    He’s deflecting after his crappy debate and numbers

  12. Anything to move the narrative off white supremacy. Why would I believe this is 45 truth. Remember Covid-19 is a democratic hoax. #byeboy

  13. Don’t believe it folks, be very careful here, there is something very fishy here, change news cycle ? delaying elections ? There’s something up.
    -concerned friend from the mid east

  14. Who’s surprised if Trump made this up entirely just so he can miraculously recover with no symptoms and “prove” it’s a hoax voters don’t need to worry about.

  15. It is hard to believe if this is real, a hoax or fake news.

  16. Trump Playbook is all too simple – “Repeat a lie often enough and it becomes the truth” – Joseph Goebbels

    He’s lying time to fake my death and disappear in Russia.

  18. Trump is a pathological liar… I don’t believe he even has the coronavirus, but if he does he’s somewhere cowering and crying like a little girl…..

  19. I hope Don the Con doesn’t survive his covid illness.

  20. Wonder if trump read “the boy who cried wolf”. Probably not, he can’t read.
