  1. Donald J Trump is killing this country

  2. Trump IS the HOAX | October 2, 2020 at 2:32 PM | Reply

    Trump is killing the GOP figuratively and literally.

    • Vote Blue for healthcare

    • The gop is. They allow and enable all this. Vote Blue!!

    • Literally yes. But let’s be honest, the gop allowed t’rump to be their leader because after years of pushing white grievance, demonizing of minorities, and government ineffectiveness….they knew he was the only way to win. By finally tapping the slice of voters who were scared about white people losing their majority status. He’s not the cause, he’s the result.

    • Could they actually have a Death Wish? This is not sarcasm or trolling. Is this deliberate?

    • @Ro G Yes, and it did not start with Trump. Trump is just another legacy from the Reagan administration:
      Our present problems started after Ronald Reagan’s FCC abolished the Fairness Doctrine in 1987, a policy that required the holders of broadcast licenses to both present controversial issues of public importance and to do so in a manner that was honest, equitable, and balanced. It has been this singular act that has really served to create these self-serving loudmouth talk radio personalities and their echo chambers that have divided the country and continue to disseminate lies and promote chaos with the goal of causing the people of America to lose faith in our democracy and our institutions, including the media, that prop up that democracy.

  3. NOW….we can call it the Trump virus………….we know he likes to put his name on things

  4. Lol no it doesn’t. Our President plays golf and watches tv all day . We will be just fine without him. He really doesn’t work much.

    • Vote Blue for healthcare

    • Do not forget Junk Food also

      And our country is less safe because of that.

      Jay B: Shame on you. Trump is busy and he is working. It takes alot of energy reaching into the pockets of every American….

    • Yes, it does. As I’ve wrote in my comment: the somber fact is that the less alert and healthy your incumbent is, the more your health and fate, individually and as a nation, is better. He has an actual opposite effect on the health of your country when he’s all fully alert and functioning, whatever that means.

      So now, a temporal (at least) prognosis for you: less democracy destruction, less white supremacy “subtle” cheering-on from the very top. For about 14 days. Feel better, everyone.

    They don’t have on a mask because HE’S NOT SICK. It’s a sympathy ploy.

  6. Michael Blick | October 2, 2020 at 2:39 PM | Reply

    The president has never been alert and attentive to the needs of the American people

  7. Who’s going to step up and perform t’rump’s daily 5 hours of Executive Time? 🤔
    Who’s going to skip the Corona task force meetings if he’s not around?? 🤔🤔
    And who’s going to play golf this weekend while another 1,000 Americans die??? 🤔🤔🤔

    Trump just saved American’s Millions from 2 weeks of not playing golf!!!

  9. It’s the new hoax! Trump pretends to be infected to manipulate the voters.

  10. So. Whatshisname got infected with the Democrat Hoax.
    Now *this* is interesting.

    • Yes, what was he thinking, getting himself tested? If he hadn’t been tested he wouldn’t have COVID-19; – – – at least that what he has told America!

  11. “No, I’m not concerned at all.”—Donald Trump speaking about the pandemic on March 7

    Is Trump really sick? Or is it yet another of his stories?

  13. This is a Hoax to get sympathy and excuse to back off from debates. They must have gotten STD not Covid.

    • LibHunk: When I see White House photos, I see his fashion model wife and a lot of wannabe blondes.
      They’re not only transmitters, they’re broadcasting it.

  14. Remember folks that trump lies constantly. I would believe it more if someone secretly told a member of the press than it coming from the white house press.

    Vote, vote, vote! Don’t get side-tracked from this!

    Fake News! Right after Melania’s tapes come out and Donnies refusal, again, to tell America he is not a racist, they both magically are infected with Covid19. Convenient way to try and get sympathy votes.

  17. They are lying 🤥..Trump doesn’t have covid, that’s why they are not wearing a mask.

    • You don’t know that………you THINK that, it’s your opinion. You cannot state your opinion as fact, without any proof.

  18. We haven’t had a mentaly healthy president for almost 4 years now!

  19. Trump is in the process of buying the farm as a tax-deductible expense.

  20. Show us the proof, Trump’s GOP words not good enough.. This could be just Fake news

    • Proof of WHAT ???

    • EXACTLY! We need to see the proof he even has COVID. It’s just too coincidental and with everything else he’s been throwing into the mix of this election, this could be another way to get sympathy votes. I’m not buying it. Too many lies has ruined the GOP as being truthful or transparent. If he DOES have it, I don’t wish ill will. We already voted Biden. 💙
