    I wish the Governor well.

  2. I saw this fools bravado countless times in the military. The ones who get away with it serve only as an encouragement to the other fools be even more foolish.
    Unfortunately their “bravado” means they are also spreading it to a lot of sensible people who might die because of it.

    The fact that Trump hasn’t gotten sick is clear proof that.. there is no God..🙄

    • They still have not explained that midnight run to the hospital back in January, have they?

    • God exists he gave us free will because he isn’t selfish we have to pay for the consequences trump is to blame as well as some politicians in both parties but the people truly responsible are the voters who voted for this man and the one’s who stayed home

      Because Donald’s a child. Didn’t you hear? They can’t get sick.

    • Or…it is simply proof that God has a very sick sense of humour.

    If they stopped testing people who have to meet Trump, there wouldn’t be so many Republicans with it.

  5. Even though he split from trump, he’s still a ignorant conservative running around with no mask on, this virus gets its strength from ignorance ,and the ppls who believe they have a American choice

      Actually, he has enforced wearing masks in Ohio and has preached to ohioans (like myself) many, many times on the importance of wearing a mask…So either he doesn’t practice what he preaches (which from what I have seen is NOT the case) or the masks do not work to stop the spread.

    • @Mandi Williams thanks for your information, peace be on to you.

  6. We arr in the middle of a Moronavirus

  7. If it’s such a hoax then why are these GOP’ers getting tested….Didn’t Herman Cain prove you guys right about masks 👉💀😷👈…you know they don’t do any good and there is no virus

  8. Pity. I liked DeWine as a governor even though he’s a republican. He is one of the guys you can disagree with politically but still respect. Not many people left like him in your country…

    Trump: “” I say to my people, stop the testing ” too bad, they disobeyed him in getting the Governor tested, he should have been allowed to have trump infested.
    It’s selfish, having everyone around trump tested, while he advocates for Americans to stop testing themselves.

      @Christine King my vulnerable group is NHS administration. Sorry you dont like my opinion but i have to tell you what i see. Lockdowns just delay the inevitable. Btw.. All holidays are cancelled. Tells me the inevitable is happening soon.

      @felix leiter If you were really what you say, you wouldn’t be here. So, go eat sh*t, troll.

      @Christine King well its 0735 BST where i am and im not a troll. Perhaps a bit of self reflection is in order.

      @felix leiter Right. Troll.

    • @ihave35cents The “uptown” 25 yr olds or the “downtown” 25yr olds?

    *Professor Allan Lichtman, a historian who has correctly predicted every single election since 1984, has just predicted that Trump is going to LOSE in November.*

    It is what it is. The president said that, so what’s the problem.? I would expect that he agrees.

  13. “Hospitals say feds are seizing masks and other coronavirus supplies without a word”

    Shouldn’t have tested. And why are republicans quarantining anyway? Pop some hydroxychloroquin and the sniffles will magically go away. If it’s even there since it’s just a hoax.

  15. Close! SOOOO CLOSE!

    It’s like COVID-19 is playing cat and mouse with trump.

    COVID sees no race, gender, political affiliation

    Funny how these corrupt scum can get tests and results while the rest of us can’t.

  18. When Repugs start dropping like flies, maybe Drumpf will start taking it seriously. (Herman Cain doesnt count to Dolt 45, for obvious reasons) .

  19. Why is Trump testing people that are gonna be around him? You test and you get cases! No test no cases, right? SMH I really hope Trump gets COVID.
