    “Joe Biden is going to be your president because some people don’t love me.”

    – Helsinki Don

    • @Desperado5501 quiet parakeet

    • “- Helsinki Don”
      I know what you mean, but please, don’t associate Donald Trump with the capital city of my home country (Finland) in any special way. Finland is a well functioning democracy, one of the least corrupted countries in the world, and Trump is not popular here.

      @Sperup AD The American People will vote again! Only this time, we will win by more than 77 electoral votes!
      God Bless America. God Bless our police. God Bless our President Donald J. Trump

      @SouthSide Chicago I love that in your mind, trump has grown his base somehow. It’s fun to think about how many successive failures in cognition you’d have to have made to reach that point. Win by more than 77 electoral votes………yea for that to happen you’d need more support not less. Trumpers never have been good at simple tasks like counting though.

      @SouthSide Chicago BAHAHA. So in your mind, orangie has grown his base somehow? Thats a fun thing to think about. Seems, like your iq might just match your shoe size.

      @lord of the Sith liberal slayer Oh, well don’t let me stop you from making a fool of yourself in the name of being “flippant”, get that tinfoil hat on! Lol, all we know for sure is that you believe everyone who points out how stupid you sound believes all those things, because i sure haven’t made those claims. Have fun with the whole iq matching your shoe size thing. I imagine its a struggle for you to figure out which hole the food goes in.

      @theron gentille also I dont need Coronavirus lecturing from some dim beta-citizen that supports a political party that puts covid patients into nursing homes with the most susceptible and who have the highest mortality rate of all demographics in our society.

      @theron gentille you dont strike any nerves. Your best insults are about as team-lame as a trevor Noah commercial . You should invest in a laugh track or a applause sign like he has so we can know that you attempted a awkward pass at humor.

  5. “Trump Is Failing As Commander In Chief”….. no Ma’am, that ship sailed soon after Inauguration Day. Trump has failed as CIC. Trump has constantly disrespected serving and retired military personnel, and their families. Part of his defence for his draft-dodging cowardice.

    • @ss he may have coined the name, but the reality of subversives worldwide attempting to destroy this country from within is substantial…so whatever name you wanna give it doesn’t matter…What we do to stop it does matter

      This is the kind of repulsive character that the USA produces and ends up in the White House:
      “On 29 August 2012, McEnany tweeted: “How I Met Your Brother — Never mind, forgot he’s still in that hut in Kenya. #ObamaTVShows”. (The Guardian, April 2020)
      Along with the spurious dig at Obama, who was born in Hawaii, the tweet also traded on stereotypes of Africans living in huts.
      Highlighting the tweet on Tuesday, Richard Painter, a former White House chief ethics lawyer, (ethics?? for GW Bush?? haha) wrote: “What is this? A KKK rally in the White House?”
      McEnany is a disgusting racist. The little cross she wears around her neck is pure American hypocrisy.
      Meanwhile, the bodies keep piling up in the greatest shithole country on the planet.

    • Earl of Mar what you’re doing is called a rationalization. You’re mind can’t change so you have to convince yourself that our president isn’t a trader. It’s time to wake up you trumpers have been sleeping for far too long.

      So somehow those so called hardcore Trump Supporters… must be coward deep down. and the one in branson yelling I will teach my grand childeren to hate you all (the people of colors) apologised after losing her job and home.
      It is always after consequences they start to think … never before.

  12. the tRUMP “so called” presidency IS A “HOAX!”

    • I take no responsibility

      I didn’t know anything as President

      Because the excuse is so stupid, it makes it only more believable that he knew.
      And that his lack of response to the Threat to our Troops was Wrong

      Melbourne Australia is to start using fast track saliva testing for COVID-19.

      Why is America not using faster and better testing?

      Why still so far behind on testing?

      Below Information on USA Deaths from CDC site on 6/29:

      For Week Ending 6/20/2020

      906 COVID-19

      2,232 Additionally Deaths
      involving pneumonia, influenza or COVID-19

      For summertime, it would certainly seem likely that most pneumonia deaths are COVID-19, since flu season is over in USA

      Making COVID-19 deaths for 1 week over 3,000 for USA

      Narcissist is trumps middle name. He has no choice but to fail. Until he seeks professional help in his psychological and emotional disorders he’s doomed, then he can work on his racist and bullying, also a world map might be a good learning tool.

      @Keith Johnson – Shelby GT500 As a conservative you need look no further than the deficit to see the Trump scam. Even before covid he was on pace to out spend Obama. Obama put millions on healthcare and still spent less than this clown. Obama got handed an economy on the edge of the abyss. Trump came in with unemployment low and the stock market up and in 3 years has highest unemployment in my 40 years and a stock market propped up by trillions in tax payer money.

      The day Trump took office was a day of Infamy – Worse than Pearl Harbor & 9/11 combined.

    • @YQ10 Galaxy Hidden & Cloaked please explain why? and dont count the lies u have been listening too..what has been proven?

    • @deb polocz No one is going to list the many hundreds of examples where Trump failed as President. You’re not interested in facts; you’re like all Trumpers who just keep denying what is obvious to every rational human being on this planet. You are part of the problem, and no one is going to waste their time trying to educate you.
