    I am coming to believe that Mitch McConnell makes up reality as he goes along.

  2. McConnell is looking at the polls and is starting to distance himself from Trump. Too late man, too late.

      @Dirty Rotten So you’ve READ this plan?? Or are you just taking pResident Lysol’s and his new Apprentice’s “word” for it?? Yeah, neither one of them have ever lied to you…compulsively.

    • Doubt it

      @Dirty Rotten (looks at name) Hey president trump is in this chat on his other profile 😂🤣😂

      it will be McConnell who loses because trump supporters main issue is the corrupt deep state..say what you want about trump himself, but to the voters that is the main issue..we all see McConnell is one of them.

    • Yep, rage built up against him and Cotton.

  3. But he’ll vote against the new bill. His apology means nothing.

      @Zero Comments! your insights are actually true in many ways. takes an outsider to see the reality. my hubby is a refugee from iran..we see…but i will stand by my other comment that most younger people see the problem and have been divided by the media as to how to solve it.. fox is best..they have obvious bias but at least share the facts. if you can seperate from the bias you are able to come to some logical conclusions as to what is going on..keep telling Americans what they need to see IMO

    • @Ashley Fieramosca if you are not American then you have no dog in this fight. Propagandist.

      @Ernest Ele i am american. born and raised. just noting that americans cannot be trusted to decipher truth from fiction. maybe because the CIA has us all brainwashed ( that last part ahould make for some more interesting attacks. lol)

    • @Ashley Fieramosca you are still a propagandist. China owns us and you are going along with it. They are communist if you don’t know and ” democratic socialism” is communism’s ugly cousin.

      @Ernest Ele you must be insanely blind with some kind of resentment. i am the most anti china person there could be. fully supoort trumos effort over there, same with irsn and everybody. globalism is the biggest problem facing america today..besides the media liars, globalism is the bigfest threat IMO. you should consider if the outrage we all feel is clouding yoir judgement and undermining your argument..i know i had to do some reflaction myself

    then why are you saying Obama this Obama that?

      @Adventure54 I’ve voted in every Presidential election. This will be the third time I’m voting independent. So it is your opinion that people must conform only to one way of thought? That explains America today…

    • @Elmer Beltshire Are you aware that a US epidemiologist was embedded within the Chinese CDC and the Trump administration discontinued the position as part of his trade war with the Chinese? If not, read up on Dr. Linda Quick. She left the position in July 2019 and had she been on the ground in China and there had been competent leadership in Washington, some of this disaster could have been avoided. As a retired military officer, to me leadership is everything. The current US president is not a competent leader. He blames everyone else for anything that goes wrong in his administration, takes credit for things he had no involvement in if they turn out well and doesn’t trust facts and professional advisors. The majority of the COVID-19 disaster in the US can be directly traced back to decisions he made or failed to make. While you can point to things that everyone else could have done differently, the buck should stop with him, it doesn’t and Americans are dying as a result.

      @Elmer Beltshire During Mardi Gras, Trump was calling it a HOAX starting back in January. He was blaming the democrats for attempting to crash the stock market by hyping the virus to make him look bad. Your memory might be that of a pigeon but most Americans remember & we won’t forget in November 2020. are you really that gullible?….”trust but verify”. China is a geopolitical adversary, do you really expect them to do the right thing especially involved in a trade war created by Trump? Grow up! Look at Russia….the same predicament. lying about their death count & not being forthcoming with what’s going on over there. Trump was warned & did NOTHING! That should be the new campaign ad.

      @Mr. ‘Phet I’ll have to read up on that, and if that is the case, then yes, her removal would be another big blunder on Trumps part I completely agree. Back to my other point, when Trump called for a travel ban he was immediately labeled Xenophobic and chastised by all Democrats. Meanwhile China hid what they knew about the virus and allowed for thousands of flights to go out internationally, creating a viral based wildfire. During that time, if Pelosi (D), Burr (R), Feinstein (D), and Loeffler (R) all sold stocks based on inside information they had on the virus, then why did the Democrats keep decrying Trumps calls to shut down international flights? You see the problem here? Trump ignored the virus for political gain in an election year which enabled the virus to spread. Democrats withheld that same information which enabled the virus to spread in an election year. We the people are fodder for politician’s desire for more power and control. If people stopped taking their news from Fox, MSNBC, and CNN they would realize that neither side is their friend at this time.

      @Adventure54 I’m sure I’ve missed some here, but in this thread you have called me: stupid & misinformed, a whiny Snowflake without a clue, claimed I have a memory of a pigeon told me I’m gullible and to grow up. You’ve called others ‘duped and misinformed’ while telling telling them to read books by ‘non-partisan individuals’ while giving a take that is 100% partisan. Meanwhile, I’ve stated and acknowledged where both sides share horrific blame and get insulted that I don’t know what independent means. This is comedic gold. Me: Trump, Bush, Obama, Pelosi, Feinstein, China, The WHO and others are to blame. You: TRUMP! (puts fingers in ears and refuses to look at the facts).

    The Obama Administration did have a documented “game plan” for a pandemic response. I reviewed the nearly 70 page Pandemic Playbook from the Obama Administration. It is based on science, well-written, and plays out a sound strategy for a response, given a variety of scenarios. The Trump Administration’s response was inept, incompetent, mismanaged, and not based on science.

      Really, eventually it will go away isn’t a game plan? Hmmmm 🤨 shocker. Bumbling, stumbling old coots.

      you and your fake news just want to talk bad about glorious infallable leader Trump!
      Obviously he has a plan. Here is the tremendous bigly plan:
      1) Denial
      2) Nepotism
      3) Political appointments to task force
      4) No containment measures
      5) Gag order
      6) Paid treatment
      7) Open everything up by Easter
      8) Incite armed rebellion
      9) Incite race war
      10) Blame China

    Why doesn’t his top lip move when he talks? He looks like a puppet.

  9. “I don’t know enough…” He didn’t say “and I’m doing my best to keep it that way.” Ignorance kills people.

  10. Imagine a member of Congress not knowing that there is a Emergency Preparedness Plan in every Administration…HELD BY FEMA!

      Doctor Ferdinand I see readings isn’t your strong point. When did I say “he can’t admit “? Looks more like you are getting saltier and saltier because poor little mitch doesn’t get a pat on the back for his back page retraction. I’ve noticed your hero was not on TV today saying he was wrong.

      Well he did admit it, the problem is he said Obama was at fault, now that it’s our that a plan was left he won’t blame trump, that’s a problem

      Lol… How exactly is Obama responsible for the estimated global death toll for a virus that started on a pig farm in Mexico? Btw… only around 12k Americans died from h1n1 in 2009. This is not the same at all.

      I just prefer a smaller government. When the government does something, it always a circus no matter what party is in control. Trump is a liberal, but not the modern day progressive liberal that hates any opposing view. The party has shifted to far left.

    “I don’t know enough”. Finally an honest statement from Mitch McConell.

  19. “I just do what ever pads my pockets with green. I can pretend to have a backbone with a child (45*) in charge!”

  20. “Trump’s 70 DEADLY Days of Delay” is STILL killing Americans and destroying our economy.
