  1. So, it’s unsafe to hold elections, but it’s perfectly safe to send your children to school? WTF? 🤪

      Remember – CDC issued warning for Doctors to beware of *Multi System Inflammatory Syndrome in Children* a COVID19-related illness, like toxic shock!

      Pls *YouTube Search* this video for info on symptoms. | Watch “Trump: Ousted Vaccine Chief A ‘Disgruntled Employee’ | NBC Nightly News”

    • He voted by mail himself, what’s good for the goose is good for the gander .

    • @Diana Strong are you talking about Kawasaki disease??

    • MY CHILDREN WILL NOT BE POLITICAL SACRIFICES FOR TRASH LIKE trump!!
      NOR ANYTHING ELSE!!

      You and me both Annie Warbux! Always felt comfortable w/his
      decisions, his manner, their class as a couple! This buffoon now is illogical, embarrassing, criminal,
      etc., etc., etc.!

    • I too miss when Obama was in office while he was dropping bombs on Middle Eastern children.

    Actually, it’s out of Trump’s hands. He cannot change election day.

    • Candula Girl | July 31, 2020 at 6:52 AM | Reply

      Seems to be the case Karen Lee-Benjamin! It will be a pleasure
      to see him gone forever!

    • I don’t think his actual intention was to try to delay the election, but rather to get his supporters riled up about how “fraudulent” mail-in voting is. That way, when November comes around and Biden (most likely) wins, he can argue that the election was rigged with a “I told you so” sort of approach. To put a cherry on top of it all, he specifically adds question mark to the end of the tweet so he can argue that it was a joke or something along those lines. Of course, there’s still a chance that he genuinely wants to delay the election, which of course is a corrupt and un-American move.

    • You’re probably right. He and his groupies can contest and hold results up until the Supreme Court once again jumps in….that’s what it looks like to me, a replay of Florida and the Bush Jr. election.

  6. America needs to Reset….Starting with getting rid of Trump.

  7. No other American President knew he had multiple felony charges waiting for him on the day he left the White House.

      When is Michael Cohen’s tell-all book coming out. I hope by September so we can see what type of crimes did Trump commit.

    • Sanders himself took heat for saying that even the Boston Marathon bomber should be able to vote

      Democrats, soft on crime
      Let felons in jail vote
      Let people destroy property and burn businesses to the ground

      The Mainstream Media is just a political tool.
      We won’t get 2 sides of Any story.
      And we won’t get a story not filled with Propaganda

      The Media was so upset on Memorial Day weekend at all the beach goers, pool parties, etc
      That it would spread COVID-19

      A few days later the Riots started,
      Looting, vandalism,
      And burning businesses just trying to get on their feet
      Most Democrats and Media approved and encouraged the Riots

      No need to worry about COVID-19 any more
      No problem with large gatherings any more

      America decided COVID-19 must be over.

      2 weeks after riots started, COVID-19 cases started to increase.
      We are paying for the media and Democrats disregard for COVID-19 and disregard for our businesses and neighborhoods and cities.

      I won’t forget nor forgive the Democrats for the Riots nor COVID-19

      Our area only had 4 deaths and about 300 cases before the Riots

      Now we are having over 200 cases Daily and we have hit 50 Deaths today.

      And so now most businesses are Closed again and many in our rural area aren’t likely to recover.

      I was 100% Democrats before the Riots

      Now I would rather have ANYONE as long as they are Not a Democrat

      I’m not about politics
      I’m about COMMUNITY and People
      About what is Good for America

      Democrats are Not good for America

      Children have been Killed by these riots.
      8 yr old in Georgia,
      A child in a fire because Rioters wouldn’t let a FIRE TRUCK,
      People shot,
      Buildings and Businesses looted and burned

      And COVID-19 allowed to run rampant because of all the riots

      George Floyd’s brother called for Peace not violence
      But the Media and the Democrats didn’t join him
      Instead they Helped Escalate

      I will not forget what the Democrats have done to America And in the midst of a pandemic

      I love America

  8. No American President has ever had an intelligence of a 5 year old.

      @Indi Pillai But you’re happy with CCP and by implication Russian asset Biden instead.
      You know the same Biden who wanted USN forces out of SCS.
      So Russia acts true to form as a CCP ally.
      I don’t hear those like you calling for reinstatement of the Cold War and tearing up SALT.
      More like the opposite.
      Who are you trying to fool Commy 50C army POS.
      Trump said he would drain the swamp mission accomplished.

    Trump is talking like he’s expecting to lose the election.

    No surprise there. He’s probably been the worst President that any democracy has ever had. His incompetence, idleness and general dimwittedness has cost 150,000 American lives. That makes him 50 times more dangerous to American people than Al-Qa’ida ever were. He has destroyed the American economy by starting lockdown far too late and finishing it far too early. He knows he’s going to lose so he’s whining and making excuses which is par for the course because he’s always been a snowflake. Just a few more months now…..

    • Thirty-seven states, plus the District of Columbia, allow early voting by mail or in-person. The drum roll will start much sooner that 11/3. I cannot recall an election I was nearly as worried about. But, Trump and the radical right will lose. I know that because the alternative is unthinkable.

    “No American President Has Ever Suggested Delaying A General Election” until now just as “No American President Has Ever Been Impeached During Their First Term” and just as “No American President Has Ever Been Proven Incompetent By A Tiny Virus.” May fellow American voters accordingly tell #ImPOTUS45 “You’re fired” on Nov 3rd by voting, either by mail or in person, for the exact opposite instead of more “Mourning in America.”

    All trump voters can wait until November 17 if they like, but all real Americans will be voting November 3.

    • Donald Trump is the number one cause of fake news and ridiculous conspiracy theories. When he attacks others, it’s usually an obvious attempt to draw attention away from himself and those working for him, by claiming others are doing that of which he himself is guilty.

    • Andrew Whitfield | August 1, 2020 at 4:06 AM | Reply

      @s Because I value my humanity and believe that when I see a person, like yourself, that is in pain, ignorantly incorrect, and in need of a helping hand I try to do my best by paying it forward and helping that person. If you’ll accept then I will be there for you regardless of misguided ideals, disagreements, and seeing you make a bad choice that harms your well being and quality of life. You did have one good thing in your comment. “Don’t care who is president”, and I insert, “as long as it’s not Trump.” Now if you decline help from me then seek it out. You need help, nothings wrong with that, and you deserve better. Please hang in there. Trump has all but fired his self. I mean you can’t deny he’s self destructing. I do not want to see you or anyone meltdown with Trump. Remember, “Jesus is King”.

    • Andrew Whitfield | August 1, 2020 at 4:12 AM | Reply

      @Gail Hitson Your right. I know he’s becoming terrified of losing in November. I mean Trump is self destructing in front of the world. You know if you dig into Trump you’ll find that his dad made bank and Trump screwed up time and time again. All the losing and loss of his daddy’s money has made Trump a bitter orange hull of what might have been a man at one time.

    In one tweet, Trump confirms yet again, his cowardly character and helpless ignorance.

  14. So because he doesn’t want to fight the virus he thinks he can delay an election? If you stand with Trump you stand with tyranny and ignorance and are not a patriotic American…

  15. He knows he is going down so just another escape goat for himself. REMOVE HIM ASAP.

    President Trump is absolutely correct when he tweets, “It will be a great embarrassment to the USA.” Except he made a small typo. He mistakenly added a “t” to the first word of that sentence.
