  1. Rupert Murdoch is more responsible than anyone for the number of deaths in our country. Trumps approval would be lower than 10 percent if it were not for Fox News.

    • @Norman Heslington I remember, I read about how in Australia he would call in the head of whichever party he was going
      to back and give them his blessing and how they both grovelled to him. He has lost most of his power in Australia now. Because his papers couldn’t compete with the internet. But with Roger Ailes started fox entertainment on his cable network and now his flagship has brought him back to power but this time over America. Ailes and Murdoch personally picked Trump or so the story goes.

      @ZQAN spot on He still owns most of the media and both of the major political parties here in Australia.
      Fortunately for us our constitution limits the power of a prime minister
      No such things as pardons and executive orders

    • S500 Triumph There are problems with far leftist media outlets, granted. However, the far right is more persuasive toward middle America. I live in small town Southern Ohio and I see a lot more people influenced by Fox News and other sources like social media and their politicized churches than I do with Vice or Huffington Post. That’s important because the electoral college is set up so small towns won’t feel disadvantaged when compared to urban voters.

    • @Norman Heslington Thank you and well put, I didn’t realize he still had so much power in Australia. The point you
      made about executive orders and pardons are especially valid as it causes a disconnect and allows rule by decree.

    Are you going to believe tRump, Putin or perhaps QAnon over science? Science doesn’t care about your politics & cultish bull.

    • @Tyeler Nowell
      *President Trump’s platform:* Defeated Isis, lowering big pharma prices, energy independence, criminal justice reform, peace in the Middle East accords (2 Nobel Prize nominations), crushing much of Radical Islam, zero wars, First Step act, action against opioids bringing death rate down, excellent COVID response enacted the Defense Production Act 78 times, action to stop anti-American critical race theory, border security, 50+ hostage release negotiations, cracked down on North Korea, housing, bank and labor deregulation, lower taxes, strongest economy ever, 50-year record low unemployment of 3.5% in September 2019, lowest unemployment rate ever of 4.1% for blacks and Hispanics, 7 million jobs created pre-COVID, 10+ million post COVID. *Democrat’s platform:* Must defeat Trump… or you’ll all die, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump… *We Love You.*

    • ​@thom wessels The major thing ‘liberals’ hate are lies. I am a student of religious philosophy, and I believe that God is Truth. Or another way to say it is, Truth is an aspect of God. Some have kept count of Trumps antics this way. You can call the lies, distortion, and other synonyms. But I have come to settle on the words “misleading statements”. Anyway, those keep count have put the number those statements as now over 20,000, since he has been in office, I believe. Who could even imagine, an American leader, making 20k ‘misleading public statements!

      But to make things worse, Trump’s support system, turns around the principle of Truth, into something that it is not. Anyone who points out that a Trump statement is misleading, it is said to be about Hate, rather than about Truth. So thus, there is an implied message, that Trump cannot be questioned. That belief, if you believe that makes him your god/God. So no, this is not about hate, for liberals, this is about what it says in Bible: “Choose which god you will serve” I choose to serve the God, as spoken of in the Bible, the Quran, the Torah, and other world wide, religious disciplines.

      I will vote for US President. There is only one person running for president, and that is Joe Biden. The candidate Donald Trump is running for god/God. The position for God, is already taken in my life.

      They are predicting rain today, in St Petersburg. I suggest you take, an umbrella when you get off work. Be you thus blessed!

    • @Mox Avenger “The Republican National Committee’s Executive Committee voted on June 10, 2020, to adopt the same platform the party used in 2016. ”

    • Mox Avenger having the highest number isn’t always the best. Like when you are talking about the death toll from a pandemic. Ours is certainly the biggest, but no one who has a brain in their head thinks that is a good thing.

    • yurei8 including the part where they condemn the current administration. They couldn’t even be bothered to edit out the Obama hate.

  3. Let’s be real here. t’rump hates science because it makes him feel all kinds of stupid. And his fragile ego just can’t deal with the fact that he is and always will be the dumbest person in the room.

    • *COVID Timeline:*
      Jan 14th:) China announces that 59 Wuhan cases of COVID are scaled back to 41 cases. This is the first misinformation from China.
      Jan 21st:) First US case of Cornavirus.
      Jan 31st:) Trump bans travel from China. Biden calls China ban “hysterical xenophobia”. *(US had 6 cases)*
      Feb 7th:) Woodward, Trump audio is recorded. Woodward holds onto this info till his book is released in Sept. *(US had 13 cases)*
      Feb 25:) Pelosi talks in Chinatown in a very close crowd says “Come to Chinatown”. Deblasio has doctors say subway travel still safe. *(US had 53 cases)*
      Feb 29:) Trump uses the word “hoax” for Coronavirus, but his full comments, and subsequent explanation, make clear he was talking about Democratic attacks on his administration’s handling of the outbreak, not the virus itself. See Factcheck: https://www.factcheck.org/2020/04/democratic-ad-twists-trumps-hoax-comment/ *(1st confirmed COVID death & 70 cases at this time.)*
      Feb 29:) CDC says risk is low, we need to go on with our normal lives. Dr. Fauci said: “You’ve gotta watch out, although the risk is low now, you don’t need to change anything you’re doing. When you start to see community spread this could change and force you to become much more attentive to doing things to protect you from spread.”
      March 9th:) Governor Cumo says: “This is not Ebola, this is not SARS, this is not some science fiction movie come to life. You know the hysteria here is way out of line with the actuality and the facts.” *(Date of Grand Princess cruise ship infections)*
      March 12th:) Trump bans travel from Europe. Biden implies that Trump’s European travel ban is xenophobia and won’t stop the virus, says “he’ll lead with science.” *(WHO announces COVID-19 a global pandemic)*
      March 12th:) Trump proposes economic stimulus action around coronavirus and asks congress to pass a relief payroll tax cut. *(US passes 1300 COVID cases & 38 associated deaths)*
      Apr 23rd:) President Trump suggests using UV light on COVID, all news agencies call him irresponsible. This technology is now in place in many buildings.
      September:) MSNBC, CNN do regular Woodward interviews about Trump not releasing all COVID info. Trump responds that he wanted to prevent public panic.

    • Yes, but let’s also keep in mind that destroying the public school system and dumbing down Americans has been a long time goal of the far right extremists, aka Christian Nationalism aka Dominionism aka the American Taliban. They have been building this base since before Reagan (remember Phyllis Schlafly?). And that is why they will never turn on him or “come to their senses”. It’s on us to defeat them all.

    • @Elizabeth White Wow, are you misinformed. The vast majority of public schools are liberal left, not right. https://www.google.com/search?q=are+public+schools+moctly+left+or+right&as_occt=any&btnG=Search

      @Elizabeth White

      Look up award-winning public school teacher John Taylor Gatto.
      He had some very relevant comments rega regarding education!

  4. At this point I don’t trust any COVID vaccine developed in the United States. I will not be taking it. I don’t trust anything coming out of this current administration. Too many lies.

  5. Brain drain 2020!

  6. Raquel Theofanis | September 15, 2020 at 10:04 PM | Reply

    Utterly. Not even sure why I should leave the house. Everything is a lie. Everything is corrupt.

  7. No trust in Trump all lies. Biden in the WH in November

  8. Trump has put on a soap opera show to long it’s time to really get serious in a serious time we need a real President not a soap opera anymore. We need to vote Biden. I’m not taking that vaccine they will have to call the armed guards on me because Trump doesn’t care if you die from the Vaccine he just cares about bragging that he got one.

  9. I believe if he stays in office the next epidemic will be aside from death will be mass starvation and homelessness and he won’t acknowledge it at all.

    • Yep, but the trumpsters just don’t get it

    • Mass homeless is on its way already. Look what Moscow Mitch has done so it’s already in effect folks. Starvation we may have enough Charity to avoid total starvation of the homeless but not by much if Trump is re elected.

    • Isn’t that already happening? He’s exclusively pandering to his base (the red states which are often on federal welfare) while neglecting blue states which are the top donor states to the federal pot. Once the blue states collapse, the federal pot comes crashing down. And what follows will be apocalyptic.

    • Under trump America will enter a new dark age and all will suffer and crumble to dust

    • Under trump America will enter a new dark age and all will suffer and crumble to dust

  10. Stormy said Trump lies a lot about a little thing he’s attached to.🎃

  11. Trumps attitude is to win at all costs.. Even when defeated.. Claim victory…he’s a Roy Cohen and Roger Stone mix of put it in the courts and threaten people and dirty tricks.. Disinformation..

  12. President Anarchy, Trump, is a super spreader himself and is personally responsible for many deaths from COVID.
    How anyone can support this man after 200 000 DEAD and counting is crazy.

    • onEtopbbloveyou.link

    • Glenn Kirschner is very experienced, smart, and grounded. I completely trust him on these issues.

      Mox Avenger Thank god we’re not America! The difference is that we in Australia followed the science and the rules! You’re so right there is no comparison between America and Australia- we have responsible leaders who care about the people and have made sure they are well looked after! So yeah Thank God we’re not in America! Perth Australia- 9 deaths 4 cases no community spread! How you doing! Melbourne dropped the ball after the BLM protests and were immediately locked down and still are until they are clear and are not allowed into any other state! Again – how you doing!

    • Mox Avenger are you suggesting Australians aren’t human? I don’t see how comparing two very similar populations isn’t valid. I mean, if you don’t know how science works…

    • Jew Dy, thank you, the more people that point out the stark differences in how 2 countries with similar people handled this Pandemic and the 2 different results. The more people will wake up and understand America has handled this pandemic horribly and we have
      a lot of people who have died that shouldn’t have. Thanks.

  13. I believe in my science but I know they will not have nothing ready this soon I wouldn’t take the chance to take it jmw

  14. As far as trust goes if Trump told me the time of day I’d get a second opinion

  15. The grim reaper is passing over our ancestors and laying his hand on us. trump can’t stand for anyone other than himself to prosper.

  16. If you see them filling the syringe from a Clorox bottle, don’t take it.

  17. That’s why Evangelicals, Plumbers, low information supporters like him. He is their hero in a world they can’t compete in; a world of science and technology that they hate.

    • @Christophe L. a-fucking-men.

    • @Jake Spur most of them are Evangenitals. They exist to pardon and absolve all sins committed by Trump’s genitals

    • @Lex K There are good reasons we have the electoral college. First, we are not a direct democracy. This is fortunate because we have too many usefully marxist idiots inside our fine country. The electoral college also makes it difficult for the corrupt politicians, like you see in many of America’s crime ridden large cities, to hold control of their syndicate for long. This idea that everybody should have the right to vote is not historically accurate. If we could limit voting to anyone of any group that is a constructive citizen we could fix most of the problems that we are putting up with today. As far as the right hating science… which party likes to pick and choose which science it allowed to be pursued while filtering it through the day’s PC separator.

    • @Lex K so technically he didn’t lose the election. You have been misled. The hate that you have allowed them to manipulate you with has warped your sense of truth. Truth will out

    • @S. Whitaker 😂😂”So technically he didn’t lose the election”. Are you drunk or something? Did you read what I wrote, or is your mind made of stone? In most Democratic republics, the popular vote is enough to elect the victor. Trump lost the 2016 popular vote election by 3 million. The only thing which saved him was the electoral college (an outdated system predominantly abused by Republicans to elect their candidate). If you can’t understand the political system in America, it’s not surprising, most Trumpers don’t.

  18. Me, to my friends, in January 2017:
    “Don’t put false hope in Trump’s economy.”

  19. Won’t be surprised if Trump claims he’s gonna send the first woman on the moon in a limo.
