    How sweet it is to have a team of doctors and free medication (the latest drugs) and care when you catch Covid 19. 99.9% of Americans don’t get that! Trump is shameful, and is responsible for a poor response to the pandemic!

  4. Your leader can’t even protect his people and he does not care about you. They’ll get the best healthcare but charge you thousands for the same – while trying to remove the ACA.

  5. Just better tell all Americans ” If the president got Covid-19, you all can get it!”. It is a common sense.

    ..this isn’t the first time he has had doctors lie for him. Bone-spurs excuse. Candyman doctor telling us he was extraordinarily healthy in 2016. Also the press-conference doc said he was “mildly obese”. That was all the proof I needed to see through their farce.

    • Jim Battersbee | October 5, 2020 at 3:58 PM | Reply

      There’s something particularly repugnant about doctors who lie for political gain.
      No wonder the rest of the world looks at America with disgust.

    • This is all just a big distraction. Trump isn’t sick and never was. Not one doctor has owned his positive test result. It was Trump who said he was sick. This is BS.

    • @Dave M This Russian Mole in the Oval Office is conning Americans 24/7!. Even the people of a third world country would have had a traitor President/Prime Minister in jail by now for being a foreign agent!.

    • @R OK then – go make a citizen’s arrest.

    • @Dave M Well awesome that he’s wasting yet more resources at Walter Reed instead of the WH and screwing around instead of governing. Great job America!

  7. Sounds like the Trump cultists do not care about stopping a beating heart unless it’s abortion, ultimate hypocrisy.

      we still have the dead and all of those suffering. You really think politicians decisions stops viruses and disease?

    • @Alex Hamilton Yes leaders are responsible for MITIGATING risks that help stop the spread of viruses and diseases. Otherwise you would have had more than 2 dead from Ebola under Obama. But I guess that’s something for smart NON Americans.

      Exactly. Trump is a product of American TV culture. He only cares about how he appears, not who he actually is. The Trump family is shallow, shallow, shallow.

    • “If you can’t take care of your sick in the country, forget it, it’s all over. I mean, it’s no good. So I’m very liberal when it comes to health care. I believe in universal health care. I believe in whatever it takes to make people well and better.”
      ― The Donald @ Larry King Live, October 1999

      “A friend of mine was in Scotland recently. He got very, very sick. They took him by ambulance and he was there for four days. He was really in trouble, and they released him and he said, ‘Where do I pay?’ And they said, ‘There’s no charge.’ Not only that, he said it was like great doctors, great care. I mean we could have a great system in this country.”

I like her.”

      “I know [Hillary Clinton] very well, and I know her husband very well, and I like them both. They are just really terrific people. I like them both very much.

      Q: You mean firm hand as in China?
      A: When the students poured into Tiananmen Square [in 1989], the Chinese government almost blew it. Then they were vicious, they were horrible, but they put it down with strength.

      Obama was incompetent

  12. For the last four straight years, Trump, along with his surrogates, have adopted and used the most fiendish propaganda tactics on his followers. They have told so many lies, that Trump’s followers can no longer distinguish truth from fiction.
    Goebbels in 1941 said, “There are so many lies that truth and swindle can scarcely be distinguished.”

    “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”
    — Joseph Goebbels

    It would not be impossible to prove with sufficient repetition and a psychological understanding of the people concerned that a square is in fact a circle. They are mere words, and words can be molded until they clothe ideas and disguise.”
    — Joseph Goebbels

  13. A psychopath willing to let his most adamant followers die for a rally; will have no qualms letting random strangers die for lack of healthcare

      you may regret tomorrow.

  14. It’s a hoax folks none of them have it they don’t want to answer questions and they don’t want to talk about the virus let alone talk about the death count and what to do about it so use the covid-19 as an excuse to hide what a sham this Administration is and that’s end this Sham and it’s just another diversion to take away from his taxes and why he didn’t pay anything

    • @Paulo Democracy only works if those in power follow democratic policies. Too bad America. You had such promise.

    • @Paulo Canada, Norway, Denmark, Swedeb, UK, Australia are not working? Interesting. Is America an example of working? Where people have to claim bankruptcy if they get cancer? No thanks

    • @Paulo You are not providing an UK viewpoint at all 🤣, more like a Farage EDL viewpoint.

    • @Paulo I’m sorry for you being criticized, as people can be cruel. Keep expressing your thoughts. I find myself correcting errors too. I have had 5 college writing courses. YouTube has Grammer and writing skill classes that I watch to refamirlize myself with those techniques. The main reason I comment is to buttress writing these skills. At 72 years old and retired I try to keep my mind active and I can see where this country is presently going. There is a mountainous problem with the Republican Party that has sold its soul to extreme greed. God bless and keep your chin up.

  18. tRUMP just announced he’s leaving hospital today. Also states there is no reason to fear covid. Despicable.

    Trump tweeted today: “Don’t be afraid of Covid. Don’t let it dominate your life.”

    He has learned NOTHING. He has the best healthcare in the world, so he survived so far. Many Americans don’t even have insurance, let alone access to world-class healthcare. If they were in Trump’s situation they would die, so they better be afraid.

      @Flummoxed Marmoset no but you file bankruptcy to protect what you have, so if you own a home or business buy insurance .

    • I will just let Trump and all of the MAGAs get it first. Then after they reach herd immunity, I will come back out.

    • Kittykitty Katt it is sure that he didn’t infected.

    • Do you believe he had covid,it is all drama to advertise the new medicine that trump has a share.He was acting as a salesman.allegidely.
