  1. Trump: “When I said we were doing a good job containing the virus I was joking. Doesn’t sarcasm work anymore?”

      Alex Robinson Most countries are doing the same….America could hardly do otherwise. Shame the Dear Leader as usual made it all about him by insisting his name was on the cheques though….

    Fake News

  4. …lack of empathy is the red-flag of a psychopath.
    It is impossible for them to think of others, only themselves and their image.

    The strange case of the disappearance of Dr FAUCI

    • Andrew Smith | April 28, 2020 at 8:01 PM | Reply

      Another whistleblower doctor of conscience silenced by a corrupt regime. Just like how Dr Ming Lin of Washington State was fired for whistleblowing about the lack of PPE in US hospitals

    • Dr fraudchi

    • @Willie Dokes first the Chinese, then the WHO, now Dr Fauci. When will we Americans finally awaken to the fact that Trump and his party of hate are trying anything to shift the blame from themselves!

    • Andrew Smith what does communist China, the WHO and dr fauci all have in common??? If u don’t know u just watch tv and don’t really study politics r follow the money

      @Willie Dokes Yes – Trump’s money!

  6. Why did they never count the “me”, “my”, “myself”, “I’, “mine” etc that littered EVERY Obama speech EVER?
    Why did they stay silent when Obama stood in front of 4 bodies he was responsible for allowing to be tortured and murdered and lie about their deaths? He was looking the families and the world in the eyes and lying! That’s ALL he was ever good at and those of us with sense knew it from the start!

  7. 13 hours of talking.. and no real information.

    He acted the same way during 9/11, saying that now a different building was now the tallest in NYC

  9. “Utterly?” This is why commenting is off for articles on your website.

      @Kris”MSNBC a trusted source?” Best joke I’ve heard all year. To fit their narrative. Large MSM corporations, echo, Parrott, and recycle misleading headlines and talking points from dishonest sources all-day, every day. If you believe MSNBC is creditable? I honestly doubt your gathering information from other creditable and or honest sources. An example of MSNBC’s creditability, they have a lier reporting their supposed trusted news by “Brain RPG Williams”. And we all know what the rebuttal will be. Orange man lies too, you Racist Nazi fill in the blanks, Russian Troll.

    • @NOBEL BIRTH PRODUCTIONS I said they are saying the same things as other credible sources which lends credibility on the topic. Are you going to try and argue Fox News is any more credible than a garbage tabloid? Or do you subsist on conspiracy YouTube videos?

    • Omg! Watch THIS 😔😔😔😔

      Well, no comments! Saves me from visiting that site. No coments, no watch.

      @Life You don’t have to love Biden to hate Trump. He is a disgusting human being and Europe hates him and his ill-educated cronies.

    Just think how much better it would be if we just worked together? IMPOSIBLE!! NO BODY IS WILLING.

    • The Democrat party would vanish if the American people ever joined together as one. Democrats only hold on to power by pitting one group against another, which is why they spend 24-7-365 trying to divide the American people. It’s all they know, they have no policy no plans, just personal attacks and hateful rhetoric.

  11. He has no empathy so can offer none.

  13. I was being sarcastic when I took the oath of office.

      !00% You did not see Trump hesitate at the announcement he won,. Trump visibly changed upon taking the next step
      as the realization hit him, that he was President Of The United States. If you are radical left? The stench of that field
      sent millions (x makes your mark) voting in Donald Trump.

  14. Trump doesn’t know Empathy, Apathy now that’s a different story.

    • Peter Brazukas | April 29, 2020 at 12:57 AM | Reply

      And he knows a par three even better.

    • Trump is incapable of feeling empathy, admitting fault, or taking a joke due to his emotional underdevelopment. That’s also why he acts like a baby all the time.

      Right about now. I know it won’t happen. But right about now, I would dearly love to see you sitting straight across from Trump. Because . I was born to a genius parent. I did not get the full endowment of having a genius parent. But, I am aware that greater people than me exists. And I am aware of the human struggles a genius goes through in fitting in.
      It may seem to you, that Trump does not have Empathy. Trump has Empathy 100%.
      Trump is existing on a level that is science fiction to us. Not that Trump is outer limits.
      But we we are space cadets, wondering where the coffee bar is.

  15. I’m still mine blown that he became president

      @Support your Troops & Atheletes anyone other than trump.

      @Leonie Romanes … I fully agree with you 100% as it is needed to save lives. All GOP Senators & Governors who supported Trump fully needs to go as well. Lives are more important than any Political career that was involved with misleading and lies with Trump during this deadly medical crises must go.

    • Omg! Watch THIS 😔😔😔

    • We hace to remain shocked.

    • I'm wondering | April 30, 2020 at 6:00 AM | Reply

      @Support your Troops & Atheletes What freaking Impeachment y’all? If you have a majority owned organization.
      And you bring as vote on the floor. Being majority owned?…your going to win. The only way to show disfavor, is for the less owned to ban 100% and so it was. ‘cepting. Who side stepped? Would that be you? Senator Romney?
      Who ran for president x2.

      Support your troops & Athletes,… Boy! You seem to be in the habit of running blind sighted. I appreciate your heart for wanting your country right.

  16. When he is reading something out loud it’s not his thoughts. Fake empathy!

    • E – That wasn’t empathy, it was sarcasm. Trust me!

    • Narcissists don’t feel empathy; They have to fake it. They had to give him a script. He is damaged; he cannot give love and he is not loved. His children try to earn his love by doing his bidding, but he cannot love them. For all his power and wealth, he is utterly empty. His life is meaningless.

    • Jane Wright
      I think it’s more his favor they seek at this point. It will be interesting to see how much they inherit, if anything.

  18. He was reading the words no heart felt emotion, he was just giving lip service, all this is so sad

  19. Vicki Messner | April 29, 2020 at 7:37 AM | Reply

    He’s reading someone else’s words.

  20. DragonFae16 | May 2, 2020 at 12:35 PM | Reply

    And when he offered his “sympathy” it couldn’t come from the heart – no, Tramp had to read it off the paper in front of him! WTF??????
