  1. Whether Trump takes hydroxycloroquine or Viagra … it simply doesn’t work.

    Um because he retaliates on them? Going on a long shot here…

  3. Folks all over the USA pray daily that Trump must be removed from office.

    • @OBRon Konobe Cuomo killed the baby boomers. the # your looking for is .0003%

    • Or dies.

    • @David Eby
      The US accounts for 4.4% of the world’s population, and if the number of deaths in the US was proportional to population, we should have only 14,300 fatalities. Clearly, the difference (75,700) is attributed to the negligence/incompetence of this wacko administration.

      @David Eby Where did you get that Fact? you should be ashamed that .0003% and growing is a number you like. We are Americans. It’s sad to know you are sharing you’re Cornucopia of useless knowledge, maybe
      One night in Bangkok”, might be what the doctor ordered, I’m glad I was born there. Spicy American blood.

    • @G.W. Rick Trump imposed travel restrictions WEEKS before prominent Liberals like Pelosi and DeBlasio stopped encouraging people to defy social distancing. As usual Trump had to fight two enemies of America,the virus and the Democrats.

  4. Cus he’ll fire em on the spot and then sue them

  5. They are too afraid to contradict him. They will lose their jobs if they do so.

      Lose their jobs? They are unemployable after the demise of this BS administration. Who the hell would want them? Damn right they are afraid.

      @M T crime is going on now as we speak, that’s why we’re are in this situation. So are you saying crime is ok just as long as it’s not on your street. Keep it at the corporate level. we are 24 trillion dollars in debt. Do you think America is actually going to pay that. It’s just a matter of time before this house of cards comes crashing down.

      John 3:16- “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”

      Jesus Christ is the way, the truth, and the life. Ask him to forgive you for all your sins. If you believe he died on the cross to pay for your sins, he was buried, and he was resurrected on the third day then you will be saved. Repent from your sins before it is too late. He is coming back very soon! Our lord and savior Jesus Christ can fix the broken, and make the weak strong again. Only he can fill your heart with everlasting love, acceptance, peace, and wholeness. Seek the Lord before he returns for his true believers. God bless you brothers and sisters

    Trump folding his arm and no eye contact when talking with reporters is lack of transparency and strength so weak

      @Mark Green Yup! Also, speaking of which, my dad was always a democrat, so we often saw things very differently…but we had one mantra, “agreement not necessary…but keeping an open mind is vitally important!” We ended many of our debates with a simple, “I don’t agree with you, but I see where you’re coming from”

      As for criticizing, I’m so sick and tired of hearing my fellow Americans saying that if you criticize the President, that you’re being un-American. I wish they would read our Constitution ’cause speaking up and being critical of our President is EXTREMELY AMERICAN. Our President is NOT a demigod, our President is NOT a celebrity, our President is NOT above the law, our President does NOT have absolute power, and our President is NOT an autocrat or dictator…he holds 1/3 of the power in the Executive branch, and it is co-equal with the Legislative branch (aka Congress, which is made up of the House of Representatives and the Senate), with the final 1/3 power belonging to the Judicial branch (aka the Supreme Court). Problems arise when any of the 3 yield their power to another branch…they’re all supposed to be protecting their power from the other two. That’s why it sickened me when I saw Mitch McConnell FREELY YIELD his power to Donald Trump!!! McConnell is NOT supposed to be saying, “I won’t bring a bill up for a vote if President Trump doesn’t like the bill ’cause even if we pass it in the Senate, he’ll just veto it.” In that statement, what he’s telling the American people is, “YOU GUYS ARE STUPID!!!” Why? Because Mitch McConnell KNOWS that even if Trump vetoes a bill…the House and the Senate can both OVERTURN his veto with a 2/3 majority vote in both bodies of Congress.

      Anyway, I’m done ranting. LOL. I’m just so tired of the Trump supporters blindly following that narcissist ’cause Trump doesn’t care about them…AT ALL. If he did, why did he give a $1,300,000,000,000 (yeah, that’s TRILLION…you can also look at it as $1.3 million TIMES 100,000!!!) tax cut to HIMSELF AND HIS ULTRA-RICH FRIENDS?!?

      Mark, I hope that you and your ohana are staying safe and healthy during this pandemic. Much love and aloha to your ohana…heaven knows we need more of both during the Trump Administration’s pseudo-regime. Take care. 😁🤙🏽

    • @Marcia Bradley But you are ok with all the disgusting ways people on the left behave?

      @King of America i didn’t know that the king of america is a hillbillies punk.

    The Lyin’ King is easily irritated by talking heads.

  11. Trump criticizes everyone, yet
    he cannot handle ANY criticism. Even when he says or does something completely insane.

  12. There’s no question that Trump dropped the ball on this one and is personally responsible for the resultant needless deaths of tens of thousands of Americans after not paying attention to the multiple warnings he received that the virus was on its way.

      This president will sacrifice as many lives as it takes to get re-elected. Republicans democrats doesn’t matter.

    • jude galligan | May 19, 2020 at 10:45 PM | Reply

      Yes Trump dropped the ball
      but the American people are responsible for not removing him from office
      before now

  13. Nobody ever asks him about his sources which he criticizes the press of

      @TripleAstyle1 A CNN isn’t fake news, but it does have a centrist bent. Fox News is so far right that it’s laughable and the closest thing to true fake news in the MSM. It truly is a joke to anyone outside America. There is no true left wing news in America, apart from independent sources like Democracy Now.

      No, journalists ask him; he just never answers.

    No wonder the US is such a mess. Dumbo, his daughter who he is boinking, and con man slumlord son in law are running the country.

    He’s somehow got a financial interest in the drug [or one of his big funders] it’s obvious because he doesn’t do things for other reasons unless he’s just throwing up sand so we won’t see something else
