    Remember one thing America , when Americans needed its president the most, he bailed on us. He left it to the states. And now when we are approaching one hundred thousand American deaths, which is mostly caused by his very negligence, he is busy entertaining himself with golf.This is no leadership, this is a weak, heartless coward. Come nov 2020 ,Vote this clown out!

    You know, we’ve been hearing political historians warn of the “death of the Republican party” for years now… who knew it was going to be literal?

      You know most of those people were Democrats right? NJ is primary democrat. This is not a political sampling of who is ignoring social distancing. The media doesn’t point that out though because it hurts their narrative. Which is another reason people are bailing on the social distancing thing, For the average American the pandemic now looks like nothing more than a way to tear the country apart more via political divide. people aren’t even seeing it for what it is anymore they’re just seeing it as politics. When you have a half of a country that doesn’t even vote, they’re not going to listen when the whole thing has been politicized.

      Tosca Tattertail that’s not accurate at all. It’s not even remotely accurate it’s people who just feel that the media has done nothing but politicize this and they just are over it. I live in a very democratic state and people are done with this self isolating as they see on the media is it being polarized they’re so sick of it they don’t know if upper down left and right what’s the actual account who died with Covid who died of Covid everything changes on a daily basis people are just done.

    • Problem is you’ve been saying that every two weeks for six weeks and it doesn’t. There have been no cases of cities that have gone over their maximum hospital capacity including NYC. at its peak. No where in the country is the virus seriously spiking so much so that the media has been turning their lens on Brazil because they are going through their spike. Gotta keep up appearances.

      @Vega Nona Either the virus has already surreptitiously travelled the length and breadth of America and a high percentage of us are now immune or we are going to see ‘New York’ death rates in many densely populated areas in just a few weeks if social distancing is not rigorously adhered to by everyone. New York was not a one-off; it was an example of what will happen elsewhere if the normal interaction in a large city is not curbed – there are numerous examples from tracing data showing a single infected person can infect ten people in just 30 minutes [when in a moderately confined space such as a restaurant] and the ten without knowing they are infected can then infect 10 more people each and so on. If just one in a hundred are vulnerable and end up in hospital it can still run into thousands in just a few weeks and many hospitals are even now reporting being close to overload despite most people interacting with significantly fewer others than normal.

    I went back to work last week and nobody here is wearing masks or social distancing? Most of them say it’s a hoax even after I tell them I lost a family member to the virus? WTF is wrong with people.

    • Tsubadai Khan I’m in Australia, happy with our response, agree with everything you say, except the mask thing, in my travels still nowhere near a majority of people out and about are wearing masks.

      I’m so sorry for you Stephen, your risk of getting the virus has increased ten fold because of the pure selfishness of the mass. At least no one can say your a dumb American.

      Even smart people struggle with sacrificing for others when the enemy is both invisible and probably harmless but they bite-the-bullet, imagine what it would be like if they had caused a tragedy [and they investigate and then trust the evidence until it is properly challenged]. Stupid people don’t have that luxury and they tend to rely on the ‘wise tribal leader’ to guide them – unfortunately the tribal leader is a sociopath and a moron and that is a bad combination.

    • @Susan Sullivan You’re comment seems very narrow. Our country is in this state because of Congress; both parties; mostly Democrats. Trump is fixing it and few are aiding. In spite of his accomplishments, no man can fight an invisible pandemic virus that came out of a Wuhan bio-weapons lab; yes, that is what it is. Dem supporters are intellectually dishonest so, this a waste of time. You’re another hater.

      @Robby the mass amounts of deaths in this country and the fact that in many states the number of infected has actually risen says that this virus is dangerous. Babies and children are dying.

      They will go out, ignore all the mask and social distancing rules because they have rights.
      But when they catch the virus, which we can argue was their own decision, they will expect others to look after them.
      They should have a tattoo on their head that says “I chose my rights over safety”. Then when they go to hospital, they can just get sent home again.

      Thanks to a concerted raid on Deutche Bank executed by the American IRS and the German police in November 2018, we now know how much the 𝐟𝐚𝐤𝐞 billionaire, 𝐟𝐞𝐥𝐨𝐧𝐢𝐨𝐮𝐬 𝐭𝐚𝐱 𝐞𝐯𝐚𝐝𝐞𝐫 and self-proclaimed 𝐰𝐡𝐢𝐭𝐞 𝐧𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧𝐚𝐥𝐢𝐬𝐭 Donald John Trump took Deutche Bank for.
      Deutsche Bank’s first transaction with Donald John Trump involved a modest renovation loan for 40 Wall Street, a property he controlled back then.

      The 𝐟𝐚𝐤𝐞 billionaire, 𝐟𝐞𝐥𝐨𝐧𝐢𝐨𝐮𝐬 𝐭𝐚𝐱 𝐞𝐯𝐚𝐝𝐞𝐫 and self-proclaimed 𝐰𝐡𝐢𝐭𝐞 𝐧𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧𝐚𝐥𝐢𝐬𝐭 Donald John Trump did little to merit Deutsche Bank’s involvement after that until the early 2000s, when Deutsche Bank agreed to loan him as much as $640 million for a Chicago project, the Trump International Hotel and Tower.
      When the financial crisis landed in 2008 and imperilled that development, Donald John Trump sued Deutsche Bank to avoid paying the $40 million he personally had guaranteed.

      But Deutsche Bank and the 𝐟𝐚𝐤𝐞 billionaire, 𝐟𝐞𝐥𝐨𝐧𝐢𝐨𝐮𝐬 𝐭𝐚𝐱 𝐞𝐯𝐚𝐝𝐞𝐫 and self-proclaimed 𝐰𝐡𝐢𝐭𝐞 𝐧𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧𝐚𝐥𝐢𝐬𝐭 Donald John Trump agreed to settle, with Deutsche Bank extending a loan from its private banking division, thus making it possible for Donald John Trump to pay back Deutsche Bank’s real estate lending unit with Deutsche Bank’s own money.

      The six times bankrupted 𝐟𝐚𝐤𝐞 billionaire, shameless draft dodger, felonious tax evader, compulsive liar, creepy pervert, depraved adulterer, sleazy serial groper, 𝐑𝐮𝐬𝐬𝐢𝐚𝐧 abomination and self-proclaimed 𝐰𝐡𝐢𝐭𝐞 𝐧𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧𝐚𝐥𝐢𝐬𝐭 Donald John Trump is an enthusiastic and highly experienced globalist in all matters concerning organized crime, corruption and collaboration with foreign powers.
      The numerous ongoing investigations into Donald John Trump’s lifelong criminal career and foreign collaboration are focused globally as well as domestically for that same reason.

      The Deutsche Bank executive who initially signed off on the $640 million loan to the 𝐟𝐚𝐤𝐞 billionaire, 𝐟𝐞𝐥𝐨𝐧𝐢𝐨𝐮𝐬 𝐭𝐚𝐱 𝐞𝐯𝐚𝐝𝐞𝐫, prolific liar, creepy pervert, depraved serial groper, 𝐑𝐮𝐬𝐬𝐢𝐚𝐧 pawn and self-proclaimed 𝐰𝐡𝐢𝐭𝐞 𝐧𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧𝐚𝐥𝐢𝐬𝐭 Donald John Trump committed suicide/was “Epsteined” shortly thereafter.

      @Scott Mceathron um, ok you do you I guess. My body, My choice too B. If you think you have the right to infect others with covid-19 then you’re Unamerican by definition. Think about how twisted that is dude, just think about it for a minute. Scenario: I’m going a out my business and you’re going about yours. I’m wearing a mask and you’re not. I don’t have covid-19 but you do (asymptomaticly). We meat and talk fir a while about the weather or whatever. We say bye and it was good talkin to ya. Two weeks later I get sick, then two weeks after that my sons get sick, then my sister. We’re all sick together in a month in a half ( yes many healthy people who get covid-19 are sick or have lingering problems for this long). There is no one to care for us so we have to suffer it alone. My sister with an underlying health condition dies. You gave us US covid-19. Just think for a minute…it’s literally 6′ apart and a mask instead of 6′ under and a wreath!

    SpongeBob: Three weeks later…

    • When you look at the graph of deaths in the US, there is a very clear pattern of peaking every 7 days.
      It seems like every 7 days there is an event that makes a lot more people than usual contract the virus (and then there is an average period of time — not necessarily a week — until that percent of the population who are vulnerable eventually die).
      Hence the critical point is — what is that event that repeats every 7 days and makes many more people contract the virus? My guess is that this is weekend partying, dining out, getting together with many other people over the weekend.
