  4. Logical & Trump *DON’T* & should *NEVER* be placed in the same sentence… unless it’s a punchline

    1. @Alice Nyte Has it occured to you that maybe I am not always a women?

      If so many people say you are wrong and are openly offending a large amount of people, then maybe what you’re saying is wrong.

      The reason it was taken down is because your comment was offensive. It is not that hard to understand.

    2. @Ordinary Mo it’s fictional because you have no idea what it’s like. Where I live it’s not uncommon, but as a red state piece of trash, I’m sure you wouldn’t know.

    3. @Ordinary Mo too bad my passport tells a different story. Marriott’s Ritz Carlton Aruba in Noord on Palm beach. Not an imaginary place bro. Give me your email and I will send you a pic of my passport stamps. Not a problem.

    1. @Ernest Vocell According to the article most are African Americans. Please tell me how Trump influenced them not to get the vaccine, ill wait.

    2. @Adriel Outspoken If you have proof, you should have given it to Trump and Giuliani, because they didn’t have any.

    3. @Adriel Outspoken Is this the only way you get people to talk to you? You have become alarmingly desperate.

      Because I know you are not that insanely ignorant.

      As you also know, if cheating was so easy at the highest national level, and if Democrats didn’t care about voter Constitutional ethics & laws, they would have made sure there were like 20 GOP US Senators who also lost.

      I’m sure even you can name five, that are as corrupt as Donald.

    1. My state has 70% vax rate and 100% of people 55+. Zero chance we’re locking down ever again unless people start dropping dead in the streets from some new deadlier variant. No one even talks about Covid here anymore because it’s not a thing. If the rest of the country is too stupid to get with the program, then oh well, not much we can do about it. Maybe offer a free gun with every Covid shot or something.

    2. @Squishy Mamma there was no significant election fraud. The former president lost because most people no longer wanted him to be president.

    3. @Alex Rodriguez there is a video out that shows a direct correlation between who voted for Biden and who voted for Trump and the vaccination numbers for those areas. It is amazing how accurately they correspond. What I don’t understand is why the people who follow the former president and Fox News will not get vaccinated when the former president and Fox News have all been vaccinated. Makes no sense.

  5. Stupidity level of some boggles the mind. Real leadership is centered around what is the highest good for people not how do I maintain a base, get votes and pander to a guy like The Don. If he had taken the highest good approach starting in late Jan/Feb ’20, could have prevented thousands of sicknesses and deaths. More concerned about votes and the economy.

    1. @Matty ice I am guessing now – just a very wild guess – that you do not believe everything CNN says. I love a good sarcastic comment like that. Wish I had wrote it.

    2. The reason why Fat Donny isn’t out promoting people to get vaccinated is because his political advisors have told him that most of his supporters are conspiracy theorist antivaxxers and it would reduce his popularity if he promoted getting vaccinated.

  6. Just remember we are talking about a people who is willingly sacrificing its youth to keep its weapons at home.
    Nothing is chocking me anymore…..

    1. According to the article most are African Americans. Please tell me how Trump influenced them not to get the vaccine, ill wait.

    1. @evan doe If you don’t know I would be wasting my time telling you. Now piss off, are you seriously this thirsty for attention.

    2. @Facts Matter in other words you can’t tell us why the mainstream media says that Republicans have lost all credibility after January 6th, you just regurgitate it….

  7. The problem is that the average American no longer has the character, integrity, or critical thinking skills to determine what the truth is … as evidenced by the number of those who still support Trump.

    1. @Andrew Pinson
      Not sure if you are aware or not but it seems the majority of Americans agree that your failed god-emperor had to go. He lost. He is a loser and by extension you are a loser. The walls are closing in on him: SDNY, NYAG, other state and federal investigations ongoing. Keep getting your info from OAN, Newsmax, facebook, there’s lots more disappointment headed your way.

  8. Trump got vaccinated while still in the WH so why tell people not to get vaccinated rather stupid isn’t it

    1. No it is not stupid, it is selfish and heartless and unpatriotic.
      It is typical Trump. He was never a leader, he always just strived to be a celebritiy, rich, famos, loved. The male boomer version of Paris Hilton or the Kardashians.

      A leader has the guts and the spine, to tell unpopular truths, in the interest of securing the wellbeing of the nation. Trump´s actions were never guided by what good for America, he was always only concerned with serving his own interest. It´s a pity.

    2. @James Eagle Yeah, can you imagine how this recommandation could have been any more half-hearted, defensive, weaker?? What a joke. Especially, if you compare it with his passionate endorsement and extensive PR influencer campaign for hydroxicloroquine and the antibody cocktail got. Geez you wonder why don´t ya.

    3. To be fair, I’ve never heard Trump encourage people to forego the vaccine. He just got it in a sneaky way while Biden and Harris did it on national TV.

    4. Even though Trvmp had ACTUALLY gone on tv and said that people should get the vaccine, the media and social media platforms that avidly support him has thrown up such a massive cloud of doubt and fear regarding the vaccines that even his most ardent supporters are not taking even his “endorsement” and encouragement seriously, and now he is unwilling to buck the trend his supporters have embarked upon by reiterating that they should get vaccinated.

  9. Give them a disease they aren’t vaccinated for and let’s see if they change their tune.

    And take away their health insurance. That should be in health insurance agreements. No vaccines, no insurance.

    1. @Silv3rwulf73 Because the unvaccinated are Petri dishes for new variants, thus a threat to everybody.

    2. Now HERE is a “real” democrat voter.
      ” no vaccination, no insurance “.

      This is why the party of corruption, slavery and treason must be destroyed. The only political party that’s had 19 of its members expelled from Congress, 3 for corruption and 16 for treason. The party of the Klan. The party of Jim Crow laws. The party that unanimously voted against the 15th Amendment. The party of raging racists like Wallace, Johnson, Duke and Byrd. The party that now embraces communism but hides behind the socialist veil while attempting to change the laws that prevent them from coming out of the closet. (California Assembly Bill AB22 – 2017)

      While you’re explaining yourself, perhaps you can find the missing evidence of a flip.
      Your party started a war that killed over 630,000 Americans, just to preserve their right to own other human beings.
      You have to be feeble-minded or morally corrupt to vote democrat.

    3. @worthey1969 The virus called SARS-COV2 causes the disease called Covid19. Either you have lived in a cave for the past year or your intelligence is severely limited. Either way, we welcome you.

    1. “I would recommend it and I would recommend it to a lot of people that don’t want to get it and a lot of those people voted for me, frankly. It is a great vaccine. It is a safe vaccine and it is something that works. It works incredibly well. 95%, maybe even more than that…and it is really saving our country and it is saving frankly the world.” – DJT on Maria Bartiromo

    2. @James Eagle “It’s going to go away in March.” DJT, in the White House Briefing Room.
      Wanna try again, fool?

    3. As much as I hate trump, he has promoted the vaccine. It is the one thing he got right, and his idiot supporters are ignoring him on this one

    1. @Thomas Armsworthy Jr Darwin is knocking at your door, and he’s got a a special award just for you

    2. True.. Starting with Joe Biden and his nurse maid DR Jill who doesn’t know what day it is, or where he is at.. But biden does know what flavor ice cream he has..

    3. Here at the trailer park where I live with my sexy sister and hundreds of republicans who support Trump, we don’t care about being vaccinated because meth cures every illness. I lay around my double wide all day staring at my sister, thinking about how sexy hot she is when cooking my favorite meal of spam and spaghettiO’s. My sister rocks pigtails, chews tobacco, lifts weights and her gaped tooth smile melts men’s hearts. I’m sure you can see why I’m infatuated and in love. Four years ago we both attended a Trump rally and met thousands of his supporters. They explained that in order to fit in and truly become a republican we must date a family member. My extremely sexy sister and I looked at one another, began to kiss each other like the other siblings at his rally and immediately we fell in love. When Trump reclaims the White House in August my sister and I plan on procreating.MAGA

    1. @Robert Hunt Easy BOB, The truth may get me to buy you a beer……. FACTS Always give leftist a headache! FACT!

    2. @THE ANGRY QUAD Well Pfizer were already working away with German Govt money in early February.
      Astra-Zeneca was funded by the UK Govt.
      Moderna received a contract from DARPA in 2017 to develop a means to fast track vaccine design.

    3. @kokokyoushi This 05/20/20 story from NBC News is just one of hundreds:

      “President Donald Trump has suggested multiple times that a coronavirus vaccine could come within months, an accelerated timeline that prominent health experts and veteran vaccine developers say is unlikely absent a miracle.
      “We’re looking to get it by the end of the year if we can, maybe before,” Trump said Friday during in a Rose Garden event centered on his administration’s efforts to fast-track a vaccine.
      “Vaccine work is looking VERY promising, before end of year,” Trump tweeted on Thursday.
      “I think we’re going to have a vaccine by the end of the year,” he told reporters later in the day.

      “But experts say that the development, testing and production of a vaccine for the public is still at least 12 to 18 months off, and that anything less would be a medical miracle.

      “I think it’s possible you could see a vaccine in people’s arms next year — by the middle or end of next year. But this is unprecedented, so it’s hard to predict,” said Dr. Paul Offit, a professor at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania and the director of the Vaccine Education Center at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.”

    4. Trump was playing golf, giving it no thought,while the scientists were working day and night.
      when the vaccine was produced, he shouted in typical Trump manner. “ I have made a vaccine´´

  10. That fact that FB has such astonishing numbers of “authoritative information”
    disseminated by their platform, in no way alleviates the fact that they still allow the platform to be used to propagate false and predatory narratives.

  11. Mom used to say: “Don’t cut your nose off to spite your face.” Hey GOP, you don’t get the point do you?

  12. I feel badly for the children of the Trumplicans. I would never wish this disease on innocent children.
