  1. I wish pants really did catch on fire when a person lies.

  2. Sure Trump stated back it May that the virus would be under control “in weeks”
    His much mooted health plan has been “weeks away” for over a year now.

  3. Listen to the Doctors and Scientists. Not Trump and his Mob Administration. They listen to Putin.

    • @Stephen Slattery Democrats*. Honestly if you’re going to try and prove someone wrong even though you didn’t. At least make sure your words are spelled right so you don’t look like someone who failed elementary School

      Stephen Slattery no we are hoping he gets really sick not just sick. If he wants to join the more than 210,000 Americans who have already died then that more than ok also. Bring on the covid 19 for him only.

    • @Gary McDermott well I don’t support the man.and I think he hasn’t really handled the pandemic well I don’t think we should wish death on him. I think we should let him heal. And all in all we don’t want pence our president.and hopefully he can change his tactic in the future on how he can handle this pandemic

    • Gary McDermott | October 2, 2020 at 9:55 PM | Reply

      music MUSIC pence if he did have to take over would be president for less than 30 days. He would get slaughtered in the poles. Bring it on.

    • @Gary McDermott yeah but the damage he could do in less than 30 days. Could be horrendous. The Senate will definitely fast track anything he wants to pass. And he’s president until January if he takes over

  4. Wonder how many people whether Democrat, Republican, Independent or Indifferent really believe anything Pence is saying here? Or anything that comes out of the Trump Administration and GOP these days, period?

    Pence has as much credence as he has moral turpitude, …

  6. Even with a vaccine approved, there’s no way the US will reach a 50% or higher degree of vaccination before the end of 2021. The logistics alone makes that extremely unlikely. We’ll be fighting this for several years still. Adapt and prepare for a long haul.

    • Right. I still can’t find Lysol in stores. Look how long it took to get masks readily available

    • The virus has mutated , like the flu.They don’t know if a vaccine will protect against other strains of the virus yet . It may be around for years. Follow the science..

  7. The announcement about testing positive comes just 13 days ahead of the second presidential debate. I bet a round of drinks he’s trying to skip-out on it

    Pence is just a Mini-Trump; but just as big a liar.

    Trump is scared to debate Biden again after he humiliated himself Tuesday, so he’s trying to call in sick for the other 2.

    • @Stephen Slattery What comes around goes around,..with over 208,000 dead American citizen’s from this virus. If Donnie dies that number will go up by one.

    • Stephen Slattery Hey I could be like Trump and tell the doctors at Walter Reed “when you see him asking for pain killers, you don’t have to be nice. Rough him up. Make him wait. Not like he paid taxes to get this SOCIALIZED MEDICINE anyway, right?” And he DID do this to himself. And like, 7,000,000 other Americans.

      @Ben Frank are you on drugs? Or just naturally incoherent?

    • Ernest Brown Covid-19 Spurs!

    • @Rock&Roll Rebel
      “We choose truth over facts.”—Joe Biden

  10. He really is the Trumpkin:
    -Orange on the outside 
    -Empty inside 
    -Has to be thrown out in November

      @TEE-nah muh-REE you puffers have no idea how fast your lives are going to change. I welcome next year. and your screams for it to stop

    • Constituent A | October 2, 2020 at 9:12 PM | Reply

      Unlike the Halloween pumpkin, however, you wouldn’t want to eat the seeds.

    • mike boultinghouse | October 2, 2020 at 9:32 PM | Reply

      @Constituent A im fairly certain your family members will be fighting over pumpkin seeds by this time next year; the stores will be shuttered..and it wont be safe to leave your house

    • @Constituent A Hmm, your right about not eating the seeds, though the idea of baking them seems not so bad.

    • @mike boultinghouse i looked at several of your posts, and I was just wondering if you were able to find professional help?

  11. Thomas DeCarlo | October 2, 2020 at 1:46 PM | Reply

    Trump & Pence doing what they do best ….lying to the American people for their own self interest vs the interest of the American people.

  12. Trump is a world embarrassment, his tax returns will turn up before a vaccine, so no time soon!

  13. If Trump’s mouth moves, he’s LYING! The man lies in his sleep, nothing he’s says is believable. Time for Change! VOTE BLUE AMERICA!

  14. Nancy Douglas | October 2, 2020 at 2:50 PM | Reply

    Cant trust anything this Administration says.

  15. Next year will be the greatest year in history because tRump (Agent Orange) will be gone!

  16. It’ll be great alright, when you’re not President.

  17. It’s surreal to have such a stupid man as the president of the country. SURREAL

      @Earl Meyer what “millions” are you talking about? I mean trump is the one with million of supporters,all i see of biden are hate videos,or explaining every lie in order that he has said,ive seen of trump but biden fills my recommendation list on youtube,look at him now,more hated then trump,47 years,and never moved a muscle,and now look at trump,people love him lots and lots,even more now,people realized america is a shitshow and fake,trump pretty much spilled the truth about it,and people werent happy

    • mike boultinghouse | October 2, 2020 at 7:22 PM | Reply

      @Earl Meyer nd you will realize after Nov 3 that there will be thousands of new Anders Breiviks and Tim McVeighs. got kids?

    • Michael Parrott-MacLeod | October 2, 2020 at 7:41 PM | Reply

      Rodrigo Cisneros yep ++++++++++

    • I agree. How did this happen? What is most striking for me is that there is no ‘Presidential’ voice. None of anything Trump has ever said has moved me in any way except to make me drop my head in shame and embarrassment. He is such a playground bully! Nothing more. Americans, vote someone with some morals in this time, for all our sakes!

    • Rodrigo Cisneros | October 2, 2020 at 10:54 PM | Reply

      @Mark Chapman trump isnt an angel,but he has done many things to make america great,biden on the other hand,in 47 years he has done nothing whatsoever,he is far worse of a liar then trump is,he cant make up a speech without a teleprompter,always denies simple questions,like there is so many things i could point out on joe biden being awful,with trump the onlu problem i would say is his character,he has like a villian type attitudd it makes him seem like a 100% bad person

  18. So, there’s a tape that was released where Melania said some pretty raunchy things. Turns out…she’s not a Christian! Who’d a thunk!?

    That’s what this whole “I got COVID-19” BS is about. Trump is just trying to deflect attention away….AGAIN!

    • Mr. McGringus | October 2, 2020 at 3:02 PM | Reply

      Possible. Everyone has a theory but no matter how it’s spun this is damaging to his re-election. And evidence is still the requirement to advance a theory.

    • @Mr. McGringus I agree, but I’m still going to spread my own thoughts until proven wrong…which I’ll never concede to.

      See, conspiracy theories are easy!

    • Mr. McGringus | October 2, 2020 at 5:26 PM | Reply

      @Fred A Lol. Yup. Sounds about right these days.

  19. Edward Mullendore | October 2, 2020 at 3:26 PM | Reply

    He is such a lier. An he’s supposed to be a Christian. Hu… Nope

  20. Junior Campbell | October 2, 2020 at 3:33 PM | Reply

    Pence calls himself a Christian. Does he remember the commandment about not bearing false witness.
