    What, Typhoid Donnie doesn’t get to infect more Americans with Covid?

    • @Cleon P. Fair enough. Problem is what’s done is done. Half of your country is health and safety guy the other half is right and freedoms guy. Both sides dont agree at all. Safety guy says live in a bubble, freedom guy says wide open herd immunity. So in the end you have a stalemate?

    • @Mr. Kelowna No,there is no “stalemate” here….One guy is just a candidate with no control–yet…while the other is actually the president who hasn’t and won’t take responsiblity for not doing things right…BIG difference.

    • @Cleon P.So if this Biden guy or whatever his name is gets into office what do you think he will or should or even can do to salvage the situation?

    • @Mr. Kelowna Don’t project to “what will happen”..Look at WTF is happening to America–….NOW!….Today….You used the word salvage,so I expect you know(?) that America has fallen apart and getting worse every day. And that Biden guy would have kept the anti pandemic teams at-the-ready…..Not get rid of them.

    • @Cleon P. My take is in the end only the strong will survive. I would say its too far gone now to get it back on track so you might as well go wide open, get that vaccine rocking, herd immunity, black coffee, apple cider, shot of whiskey. Best case at this point.

  3. Your Covid President now personally infected 34 people and counting.

    MAGA? 🤔

  4. Trump’s lies and incompetence have turned America into the world’s covid epicentre and wrecked the thriving economy he inherited. Vote him out!

    • @fred-john Rijnaard and……your point especially since you know Jerrod has financial connections with Soros but said nothing.

    • @Jay M From April 12, 2009 to April 10, 2010, CDC estimated there were 60.8 million cases (range: 43.3-89.3 million), 274,304 hospitalizations (range: 195,086-402,719), and 12,469 deaths (range: 8868-18,306) in the United States due to the (H1N1)pdm09 virus. If the H1N1 was as deadly as covid-19 you wouldn’t be saying that. But keep on your idea that Biden would actually work harder and smarter than Trump. Your senile.

    • @Sam Spade yea, okay sammie. Bidens response to covid 19 is basically the same as what the current administration is already doing or has done in record time. <--that is a fact and you can look it up. You tell me, what is different in their plans for tackling this virus? All Biden does is say trump has mishandled the virus but doesn't give a single difference on how he would handle it.

    • @E Newm Can you imagine if it was in the asshat in office’s hands?….Oh wait.

      @zeppelin craft you joined on April 23rd you donut 🍩

  5. A second term for Trump is toast, marmalade toast.

    • Southern Railfanning | October 8, 2020 at 11:50 AM | Reply

      yup, I think trump administration is over with. Lots of people are turning around and walking away. The timing is in Bidens favor hands down. Just as america is tuning in as we countdown to less than a month to go, Trump catches the virus, epic! that literally exposed him and he continues to make it worse as everyone is starting to pay attention to whats truly happening. Trump is out of time for making up BS excuses. Almost the entire WH staff is sick, all of his key advisors are sick, the whole world knows this and Trump is looking more and more stupid as each minute passes. its over and I hope it really is, his credibility is completely gone at this point and there is no turning back.

    • Bernadette Smith | October 8, 2020 at 12:45 PM | Reply

      @Southern Railfanning 💯 he won’t even do contract tracking for the people at the Rose Garden. He only cares about himself and Ivanka

    • Southern Railfanning | October 8, 2020 at 12:55 PM | Reply

      Bernadette Smith exactly, that’s the foundation that brought this entire country to where we are at today, he only cares about himself and he has sentenced this country to die on many levels

  6. Seems like this will provide Trump a great excuse to avoid embarrassing himself and the USA again. – – – I bet he will refuse to participate!

  7. Trumpty debate site: Leavenworth
    Biden debate site: Capital .🤣😷

  8. Pilar Silverman | October 8, 2020 at 9:22 AM | Reply

    Smart decission. He will not be able to bully . Without bullying he has nothing to say. Thus a coward running away

  9. I can see it now, in virtual . Biden getting his two minutes whilst Trump waving about, gnashing his teeth and playing his invisible accordion in complete silence.

    • Jeebus Hypocristos | October 8, 2020 at 11:02 AM | Reply

      I want to see him have a stroke on live television, it would get the “highest ratings ever”…Just a friendly reminder that I am FIRST inline to pp on #BunkerBoy’s grave when RONA takes him out #ANTIFA4LIFE #semperfi

    • It’ll drive him insane.

    • 😁😁😁😁 That’s exactly what will happen..pls let him make the debate!

    • Southern Railfanning | October 8, 2020 at 11:23 AM | Reply

      yup, trump is afraid of being muted. he’s such a control freak and thats definitely not ideal as a president.

  10. Evil Never Dies | October 8, 2020 at 9:23 AM | Reply

    They need to cut the microphone off of the president when it’s not his turn.

    • @Bambi Rebel Appropriate behaviour is required – Civilization .
      This ain’t Russia, you know .

    • Raven Rodriguez | October 8, 2020 at 11:52 AM | Reply

      @Bambi Rebel Freedom of Speech misunderstandings – The Right.
      So I’ll give you the skinny, in debates “Freedom of Speech” rules don’t really apply.
      Heck many instances of “Freedom of Speech” rules don’t apply where you think it does.

    • @Raven Rodriguez you have the freedom to speak your opinions openly.

      Not the freedom to speak openly when you want to. its someone else’s turn to express their right to freedom of speech, you listen and counter it with integrity and intelligence.

      That fact you even have to be told this is astonishing.

    • @Bambi Rebel FUG YOU!….No it’s not–…..See?

    • @Frank Shoniker PENCE is robot what do you expect.

  11. Toxic Trump: “Since Ivanka takes a pregnancy test daily, don’t wear a condom!”

    • hahahahaha

    • @TednKev 239 Why? Jesus! lighten up, are you on Ivanka payroll? lol

    • Haeuptling Aberja | October 8, 2020 at 10:41 AM | Reply

      @TednKev 239
      Dude, why are you so offended? That comment was brilliant, both factual & hilarious. How many times has your president talked about wanting to bone his own daughter? And isn’t the pregnancy test logic exactly like his views on Covid testing? Or is that the problem–that it’s just too spot on? Snowflake Trumpets.

    • Hehehehe …

    • @Haeuptling Aberja ~ Republican cult is offended by the truth, don’t you know! Also, they’re flaming hypocrites, because they never object to any of the really nasty untrue things fabricated about their political opponents.

  12. I like the game show isolation boxes. They could turn off sound and we could still watch Trump yelling his lies.

  13. Hank Terreros | October 8, 2020 at 9:27 AM | Reply

    “D.M.Z. Donald” now is “toxic trump”. [sigh]

  14. Trump will not show up for a virtual debate. He can not try and push his weight around. Hard to move his fat belly around.

  15. Trump is very disappointed because the Virtual Debate would reduce his chances of infecting more people..!!!!

    Trump is backing out like the coward that he is.

    • Christian D. Dunca | October 8, 2020 at 11:59 AM | Reply

      @Tim Vala True, both statements!

    • Of course corward bunker baby wussed out. Now cadet Bone spurs can grab himself by the p 🐱

    • Chimchim Wafflemouth | October 8, 2020 at 12:52 PM | Reply

      Christian D. Dunca I agree, you should try common sense sometime instead of making excuses for this cacophony of an admin that has none.

    • I wonder if it was the ‘not in the same room’ part or the townhall part that put him off.

    • @Christian D. Dunca The Tennesee Titans (football) were bringing that Covid gun to the Steelers last weekend,but the NFL found it wasn’t safe….You calling the NFL cowards for wanting to stop a covid spread and saving lives…Cancelling this weekend too…Cowards lie to people for the sake of not looking “weak”….The asshat i office is as weak as they come!

  17. So your President wants to infect his rival, isn’t that attempted murder? Bloodlust kkkountry.

  18. He couldn’t follow the rules of the first debate. His only strategy was to interrupt Biden as much as possible in hopes of defusing his responses. Now he predictably wants to back out of the second debate. Trump is a transparent coward who doesn’t want to play the game if he’s not allowed to cheat.

  19. The illegitimate president doesn’t want to do it because all he likes to do is disrupt and distract and this format will not allow it.

  20. The orange baby is afraid that they won’t give him the chance to cry like a toddler and lie to the american people.
