    DjT** and his** ‘rupublican’ henchmen and flunkies have become the ‘party of death’.

  2. that venue would be wise to ask for up-front payment

  3. GOP logic; “If we don’t test, then there’s no covid19.”

      Brian ….that’s Trumpy Logic!

    • Trump wants to solve the over population. He’s going to outlaw pregnancy test.

    • Simon Frederiksen | July 10, 2020 at 12:15 PM | Reply

      @Trisha Ann to improve public health he’ll ask doctors to quit doing rectal exams and mammograms. There’ll be fever cancer cases during the Trump presidency and more deaths when Biden takes over. Republicans have done that stunt over and over. Spend the money and run, get the Democrats to clean up and tighten the belt, rinse and repeat.

    • Test Mika for syphilis.

    • What about $50 billion that Trump administration received for testing only??
      Just published my report on how Trump spent $3 trillion stimulus packages that his administration received to combat coronavirus. Perhaps a new investigation is required!

  4. Hypocrites! After telling the American people that COVID is merely like the flu, now the Republicans are concerned for their own safety.

      ​@Maharajji NKByour ignorance is showing.The Constitution doesn’t allow for elections to be postponed. The Constitution states “The President shall hold his office during the term of four years. The term of the President shall end at noon on the 20th day of January”.
      According to the Supreme Court , who ruled against Lincoln in 1866 “the Constitution was intended for a state of war, as well as a state of peace and is equally binding upon rulers and people of all times and under all circumstances”. Even the election date is written in stone and only an act of Congress can amend it.
      To make a long story short, even if Trump finds a way to cancel the Election, his term is over on Jan. 4th at noon because he failed to be duly re-elected. The Vice President is bound by the same rules. Do you know the order of succession??? Who do you think our President will be??? Enough to make me pee my pants laughing.

    • I’m very interested to see what is going to happen in states like TX, AZ and FL as cases rise and more Americans die. How many people have to die before Republicans realize that the politicians lied to them? What do the people think who have family members in the hospital that believed this was a hoax?
      *State Example* *9689 hospitalized in Texas*

    • @Maharajji NKB Screw that! Have the election next week if you’re so confident. Everyone has already made up there mind anyway. Rallies, conventions and debates wont make any difference.

    • They scarred!!!

  5. They see the writing on the wall. They are not going to put their own lives at risks for the liar-in-chief.

      In 2019, sanctioned Russian oligarch and Putin bestie Oleg Deripeska mysteriously announced that his firm, Rusal, would build a new aluminum plant in the US, in Mitch McConnell’s home state. It was also a remarkable coincidence that McConnell blocked bipartisan efforts to stymie Russian election interference in the 2016 election shortly thereafter.

      @B A Blumenthal
      It’s called manufactured serendipity. Otherwise known as modern republicanism.

    • Actually, I think McConnell actually Answers to the Real Demons Behind the Scenes. Koch Brothers, Key Oligarchs and McConnell is some kind of Handler/ Guider for the Agenda, not so much Trump, but to Control and Continue the AGENDA.

    • @Todd Toure I think that is more likely than not.McConnell has been the real power behind the throne for sure.Without him,trump wouldn’t have survived impeachment.

    Deaths yesterday:

    France – 14
    Italy – 12
    Germany – 10
    Canada – 9
    Spain – 5
    South Korea – 2
    Japan – 1
    Australia – 0
    New Zealand – 0

    The USA – 960

    Donald Trump yesterday: “For the 1/100th time, numbers are only high because testing is high”

    How exactly is the US seeing so many deaths because of testing?

    • If we stop counting deaths then the numbers would be zero. This might be Trump’s next big plan.

    • @Edwin Slee For the asshat in office to even TRY to compare to what’s happening in other countries to the way the US is handling the virus to justify kids going back to school…..Bizarro world. #staysafe

    • @Lost & Found Travel I mean, what a complete moron!
      GET HIM OUT!

    • @BigBoogookie If you lower the poverty line, No poverty!
      If you take people off benefits and unemployment, less unemployment!
      This is how this farce of an administration thinks and this is what they’ve done.

    They are tethered to Trump regardless of what they say and do now, they have spent too much time publicly supporting Trump, we all saw it too.

    • @Don Hardcastle All reports of actual election fraud meaning actual ballot fraud have been shown to be so tiny as to be insignificant. The broader issues are gerrymandering, voter suppression, foreign interference in elections including financial help. The truth is that mail-in and absentee balloting is by far the most efficient, effective, and practical way to handle most voting. And every study of such has shown that to be true. Those are just facts. The broader issue of making elections more efficient, less manipulated, generally fairer, etc. has a simple solution. And that solution is evident in other countries such as Canada for example. Which basically has an independent nonpartisan election commission that handles elections. Somewhat similar to our Congressional Budget Office which is a nonpartisan agency that has a professional staff that independently reports on government finances and the :often absurd financial claims of all politicians”.

      With regard to your statements about sedition, treason, and fair trials. So much of that would be dependent upon what the process is and how it was handled in practice. You mention Hillary, and attempts were made on numerous occasions to “convict” Hillary over the years and politically “try” her and as far as I am aware of she was never convicted of anything. And she spent countless hours defending herself successfully. No doubt you will assert that Chump, who was impeached, got a fair trial in Senate. Which obviously is patently absurd for many reasons. first of all, no trail can remotely be considered to be fair and impartial when the jurors (senators) clearly have a personal vested interest in the outcome. Secondly, the Senate basically pre-announced that they would not impeach, no matter what the facts or evidence showed. Thirdly, it was a sham trial in the fact that evidence and witnesses were excluded, which is untrue of any real trial. Thus the whole process of impeachment, as it exists now, is not really a trail, but rather essentially a partisan political process. Now, if you had impeachment or even other serious political crimes tried as a real trial before say the Supreme Count, then that would be a different matter.

    • @Corey Ham Let me guess… didnt attend Trump University did you? You’re way to smart for youtube.

    But kids need to be in school this fall, right? Too dangerous for his buddies to stay in jail but not too dangerous for the schools to open, I got it.

      His buddies aren’t bound for private for-profit prisons. Our undereducated public school children are. They are even not reestablishing debtors prisons and a whole generation is going to start life with massive debts. Let’s see how the job creators create jobs when there aren’t any middle-class consumers.

    If it’s not safe for them to convene, it’s obviously not safe to reopen schools.

      fifty years why would you say that ? Keep comments like that to yourself! You wouldn’t want anybody talking about YOUR kids like that .

    • @howdareyou41 The economic crises cant be fixed until the public health crises is fixed.

    • Republicans are desperate to get kids back in school before the Nov3 election.

    But they say nothing about trump claiming its a hoax and holding rallies himself

  15. So they don’t want to gather together, but they want kids to go back to school, 🤔

    • @Viganch0 I suppose you haven’t been paying attention to the facts and stats that this virus is airborne, otherwise there’s no possible way that it has spread so much like it is

    • Marya Laya Espaldon | July 10, 2020 at 4:33 PM | Reply

      @Viganch0 no offense, the difference in population of Sweden and US is 370 million. The schools are heavily populated as well. I don’t think you want to be a public policy which can potentially expose that many people.

    • Trump just needs more funds!
      My recent report on how Trump spent $3 trillion stimulus packages that his administration received to combat coronavirus. Perhaps a new investigation is required!

    • @Viganch0 That is not the same as the rest of Europe and I am sure it is not quite factually true for Sweden – which has seen an increase in cases. Yes Covid19 has killed more people over 60 but young adults, children and babies have also died. Trump does not care about American deaths – he only cares about being re-elected

    • Exactly!

      NEVER send the kids to school..
      This is a chance to re-educate the liberal brainwashing..
      TRUMP is genius…
      You liberal scum will do whatever opposite General Trump wants..

      @Pat Braden OH absolutely not. I hate to say this because it breaks my heart 💔 but if you are not in the 1% than yup go to school get the virus. Bring it home to people like grandma and Grandpa…And we’ll get the bonus of getting rid of grandma and grandpa…
      I mean what would that do to a kid. If not now, when they are old enough to understand everything. To find that out. Would break me.

    • @1tonson2 I am in favor of public education. But not in the middle of a pandemic. Children learn socialization I school

    • I WOULD NOT send my kids to school unless I were convinced it is safe. In Bavaria were I am presently staying there were no new infections for about 6 weeks. Then overnight, bingo, at a family festival those people couldn’t not resist doing without there were 9 with infections. It only takes a few idiots who DO NOT ABIDE BY THE LAW and think it is all a hoax to screw all of us.

    Democrats wear their mask over their nose and mouth’s,

    • Trump’s followers who feel a mask is not needed should tell their doctor performing their next surgery that they don’t need to wear a mask for the procedure. Maybe a bad nosocomial infection would help them learn a little something.

      I agree completely, it’s just heartbreaking to think about the suffering, and countless lives lost, because someone chose to be “selfish,” rather than “selfless.”
