      Declaring 200,000 American deaths “a great job trump could care less about the body count. It’s all about November.

      David Guelette ” could care less” — making that statement tells me all I need to know about your stupidity. Trump is not responsible for the virus here anymore than you or I are. China lied and covered things up. Trump stopped stopped travel from China on Jan 29 much to the criticism of the radical left. Your buddies

      @Mainely …I like that Caligulazy, I realized he will not want someone to come in & outshine his pathetic self…anyone got a horse costume for rent? He could make that “horse” senator, maybe some things will get done.

      @Golden Eagle 22 He also banned travel from Europe with the exception of the two countries he owns Golf Properties in…What a Statesman!

      MeanGeneSanDiego You pathetic, deranged nit wits are as clueless as the candidates you elect to public office. Comment on the statesmanship of Nancy Pelosi as she roamed around a crowded San Francisco Chinatown on 2/24 and proclaimed everything to be safe snd to come join us. Then there is the corrupt Diane Feinstein who dumped millions in stocks when she received inside information about matters going south. Then there is Senator Kamala Harris who spread her legs in order to advance her career. Not to go unmentioned is 82 year old Maxine Waters who frequently is on the list of the country’s most corrupt politicians. Maxine, a former telephone operator, is in Congress based solely on merit, right? Go soak your head in a bucket of ice water, you Bozo

    Dictatorship plain and simple.

    • the only thing plain and simple is Democrites minds!!

    • Logical Psycho | April 2, 2020 at 1:17 PM | Reply

      I agree. Anyone talking about putting the military in charge of civil affairs, especially one as far reaching as this, is an absolutely insane dictator wannabe. Schumer has got to go, now.

    • Bollocks.

    • @Mainely you are really gullible. your demonRAT party is all about bribery and manipulation. for a democrat to even pretend their party is honest is incredibly hypocritical and laughable in the extreme. vote for your nazi communist socialist bernie!

    • trump’s reichstag fire.

    STAND UP TO HIM at the press conferences. America needs a Senator Welch moment from the McCarthy hearings. “Have you finally no sense of decency? Haven’t you done enough damage”

    • Yes, yes, yes. this should be the mantra of all Americans who are decent. Our silence gives them a louder voice. “At long last, have you left no sense of decency?” McCarthy was already losing support, plus the hearing began to be televised to the American people. When the nation heard Senator Welch posed this question to McCarthy it was the final nail in the coffin for McCarthyism.

      We should start shouting this. Thumbs up!! I am not certain but I believe the term “at long last” was used to emphasize that enough was enough.

    • Seán Ó Máille agree, but why do you think no one has done that yet?

    • lima leaf frog | April 4, 2020 at 5:24 AM | Reply

      @Scott McKone … he loves to say ” take him out of here…it makes him feel so “mansy wansy”

    • that these dead shall not have died in vain—that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom—and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.

      @Jules S “You can fool enough of the people, enough of the time.” (Trump and the Republicans.) God save America. X

    AUSTRALIA: has few cases – we ALREADY have national policy. ALREADY state borders closed. Child care now free. Can’t evict a tenant (but they’re helping landlords). Army is already working. How can you get well in a TENT in a muddy Central Park? #MedicareForAll isn’t just “kind”…it’s to save the entire country going bankrupt. A soldier’s kit cost $17,500…you can afford that.. but can’t afford masks.

  6. The president is trying to twist New York up , I think because it seems that he is trying to get at NY for being in position to send him to prison when his presidency is done . We all know how vendictive he is. He seems to be doing enough to wipe out NY so he doesn’t serve his consequence he has hanging over him .

    The buck should stop with Trump because he said, “I alone can fix it.”

    • if you’re a Clintonite you believe that and hope for that…. We The People see it differently and we will KAG 2020

    • @Little Nat you ain’t the people puppet, you are a small percentage of psyop victims – you neveer know what you never know. When the old folks start dropping like flies (after drowning on their own fluids for 3 days) the heartland will reject him – all but the solid 18.37% of deplorables who would let hm shoot a man on 5th ave and never stop supporting him. You are deranged, he is trump, you have the true TDS

    • The only problem with your statement is it is not Trumps fault the virus is here….  Whats your thoughts on the Clintons…  I bet you supported them.

    • Wonder Wonderful | April 9, 2020 at 4:42 AM | Reply

      Trump disbanded what former president Obama setup to watch for viruses. That was not a wise move. Why does Trump hate what Obama did to help the Country so bad? Trump must realize the same thing he does to Obama could be done to him. Trump won’t listen to the experts. Nobody knows everything!!

    • The CDC is to blame and should have had more control starting in 2009 during the swine flu…..Obama’s reign… Trump doesn’t trust organizations that are in the Dems pockets just like most loyal Americans and will not bow to pressure..

  8. Blessings to Chuck and Nancy Thank you for your service.

      That aid to the Kennedy Center was crucial. Thanks Nancy and Chuck. You’re all about helping people in need.

    The tRump admin is looking for ways to profit, also tRump thinks the more confusion the less blame he’ll get

    • do you have the power ball winning numbers also??

    • @Little Nat Here’s one for ya: Trump will be tried for treason #GuillotineTrump

      @Aramis3737 Here’s one for you. You hit your head on the bedpost when you went to sleep last night, have a concussion and the prognosis is that you will be delusional for about the next 76 years.

    Shut down Fox News. It’s a national disgrace that costs lives.

      Isn’t shutting down news agencies what Dictators do? Faux makes me puke, but aren’t we supposed to be a free country?

      How much is left to these outfits that IS actually “news,” these are purely commercial ventures with a smattering of earnest reporting to remain qualified, that’s not the protection the Constitution argued for ~ sound like a broken record, on this point comma y’know, because of how badly you’ve mostly all lost sight of the difference✌🏽💥

      Shut down NBC who is owned by Comcast. Comcast has a myriad of business ventures with China and will not allow NBC to say anything negative about China.

    Again! Logistics. Specifically ask for, the assigning of the military, to bring and distribute items needed. For GOd’s sake, that is what they do, in times of war! Wake up, this is “a viral war”, worse than powder war. Come on! Citizens, are dying, internally, faster, and worse than the war!

    • Dog-Faced Pony Soldier | April 4, 2020 at 3:17 AM | Reply

      Margaret Alexander they already have. Rear Admiral John Polowczyk has been in charge or logistical issues and supply for weeks now. His official title is head of the Supply Chain Stabilisation Task Force.

    Use Trump hotel for a hospital, free if charge 😆

  13. The whole effort is so uncoordinated its mindboggling. What a disaster. ( Fixed the spelling as to not offend the children out here)

  14. Thank you to all the men and women that are in the front lines battling this virus. God Help Us All!

    This is a complete insult. This is what happens when you fire all the heads of the departments and don’t replace them. Everybody is waiting for someone to tell them what to do. What an utter and complete failure of our government agencies. They call this a war. Well I guess this is our modern day pearl harbor. I watched a press conference with Donald and all he did was talk about how great his doing and his ratings. We also get to see all the sick little lap dogs praising him too. The military came out and started talking about (DRUG ENFORCEMENT)? No one got a straight answer on what we our doing to handle the situation?

    I agree, send out the Military to do the job….. Amen……Trump never worked in a hospital, he has no concept ? This man is correct! Period…

    Trump and pence are guilty of mass murder.

    • @Steven Hoskins Lol steven falling on your sword to make the point Washington is full of Catastrophic incompetence (I agree especially with Pelosi playing games holding up Bills so she can pocket cash in orgs she likes) but of course you never meant that.

      Your next point was Fox news is sugarcoating news in favor of Trump. At the end of the day you are just another dopey democrat moaning online. I don’t buy your butter in your mouth wouldn’t melt post.

      BTW the word Catastrophic was ridiculous. Remove Catastrophic to date democratic brick walls to Trump and we may get somewhere. Go moan to them instead of soaking up THEIR nonsense.

    • @Daryl Leaf – apparently you havent learned…you democrats lie thru your teeth about everything. and blame trump for obamas destroying the economy by more than doubling the national debt in only 8 years…obamas record is worse than any president who ever took office.

      They aren’t the only ones there’s more….

    • @Meryk Sindrak Yep just Hillary, Pelosi, Schiff, Schummer and all the other dumb muppets playing pretends as politicians.
