  1. The GOP keeps either changing history or taking about fake future promises. What else can they do when they are completely incompetent.

    Larry Kudlow pretending to care about others. Kushner doesn’t even pretend. Lol

      @B Ruane Kudlow is a psychotic drunk. For real.

    • @Tessmage Tessera In late 2007 he said economy was strong invest in stockmarket in 2008. He said tax cuts would pay for themselves balance budget and drive GDP to 4 pct plus growth. In Feb he said Covid was contained. Can anyone be that wrong on such important matters without being a corrupt liar ?

    • @B Ruane
      And he’s still working!!!

      Pretty boy Kushner was bred by a felon then married into a criminal enterprise.

    • @David Guelette & they have made a crap load of dough sitting in that White House! Smh

  4. Republican strategy: let events unfold on their own. Take credit for everything that looks good and blame the Democrats for everything that is bad all while doing nothing but spinning trump’s failures into successes.

    • ​@jake barnes 20 posts and you have yet to detail the long and impressive list of accomplishments. Instead, you’ve wasted all of your ink on empty promises from Trump, deflections for the blame he rightly bears, and insults directed at everyone else.

      Oh, and since you’re not scared, please take lots of HCQ. Please. And you stay tuned, b/c later next year we’ll know about how many deaths were caused by COVID, b/c we’ll be able to compare deaths this year to deaths in previous years. Hint, they tend not to fluctuate a lot unless there is some intervening factor such as a major pandemic or a war.

    • 💡 It’s time All Minorities recognize the Bamboozlement of the Democrat Socialist Plantation and #WALKAWAY ! 💋Sweet Latinas for Trump

      @Warm Violet ? Forgot: trump called Mexicans rapists and criminals and Latino countries sh*tholes! Or do you also want him to throw paper towels at you when you try to survive a devastating hurricane?!

    • @Vera von Weltin << your information is incorrect 💡 U vote for Sleepy Joe = our family is ReElecting President Trump 🇺🇸👍 ... a man that always puts Americans first

    • Vera von Weltin | August 10, 2020 at 7:13 PM | Reply

      @Warm Violet trump has just signed an Executive Order to defer the payroll tax for incomes below U$ 104,000. For your information, this tax funds Social Security and Medicaid. trump said that he wants the payroll tax cut permanent despite the fact that he promised not to touch SS! Who is loosing: the American people, and who is winning: the 1% richest including him and his cronies! THAT IS A FACT! You are either a millionaire or incredibly stupid!

  5. Republicans trying to convince everyone that after the election things will be so much better. I don’t believe any Republicans.

  6. If Trump can say it is what it is for 1000 deaths per day the voters would have to adjust the election messages with what is actually happening on the ground.

      sam watt every 70 seconds an American dies from covid. Let that sink in. Wade Davis has an excellent article in Rolling Stone.

  7. Let’s be clear. What the Republicans and the president are telling Americans who cannot work from home is this: “you are worth less than minimum wage.”

      @Polly Ticks I get it. You can explain away anything.
      *FLA Man Dies in Motorcycle Fatality but Listed as BS-19 Death*
      You, Poly, believe. You believe.

    • Crystal Giddens | August 10, 2020 at 9:25 PM | Reply

      @Polly Ticks You believe, you believe you believe you…Military insurer Tricare *admitted that it wrongly told more than 600,000 U.S. military members that they had the virus.* Hospitals in Florida are showing massive problems with testing accuracy, with Orlando Health admitting that its 98 percent positive rate was actually 9.4 percent. The CDC admitted that it is mixing antibody and viral test results to derive its case numbers and you can test positive on an antibody test if you have antibodies from a family of viruses that cause the common cold.

    • Crystal Giddens | August 10, 2020 at 9:26 PM | Reply

      I understand. You believe, you believe you believe.. *When you mix politics with science, you get politics.*
      *Test for Past Infection (Antibody Test) | CDC*
      Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)
      A positive test result shows you may have antibodies from an infection with the virus that causes COVID-19.
      If you test positive
      *However, there is a chance a positive result means that you have antibodies from an infection with a virus from the same family of viruses (called coronaviruses), such as the one that causes the common cold.*

      @Polly Ticks Seriously. Polly. I know you believe. I know too that believing is the extent of your so called “understanding.” Simply, put, you believe. I know that Polly. *Dismissed.*

    • @Crystal Giddens Show me where the CDC admitted they were mixing antibody and viral tests. The way I see it is you are falling for Trump rhetoric downplaying the virus. Listen two weeks ago my best friend, Stevie died from COVID 19. You may know him as Steve Holland founding member of Molly Hatchet and the last of the original members to be alive.

      A month and a half ago my nephew, his wife and 4 month old baby son flew from Chicago to Arizona. When they got back they were showing signs of COVID. They tested positive for it and were quarantined for 2 weeks. Luckily after the 2 weeks the doctors said they didn’t have a strong case and could be treated for other effects like breathing problems at home. The hospital in Chicago is running out of room for patients.

      2 months ago my ex-bassists father died of CORONA. He was 68 and a huge Trump supporter. He said the virus was a hoax and refused treatment until he had to go on a respirator. They started him on 2 liters of oxygen per minute, then increased it to 4, 6, 10. The next day they had the ventilator on 12 liters per minute and when he died that evening they were giving him 14 liters of oxygen per minute.

      Anyone downplaying this virus deserves to catch it themselves. Like Herman Cain ex-presidential candidate who died from COVID after attending Trump’s Tulsa rally,

      or Louie Gohmert, last congressmen to wear a mask. Read what his daughter said about CORONA infecting him next to people that wore masks that didn’t become infected.

    They’re not creating jobs, it’s people going back to their old jobs. Wait a few months when the virus will have gotten even worse.

  9. How about this: the economy will not be back to “normal.” What jobs? The ones nobody wants?

    Vote Biden for President this November. Trump and his Administration is distorying America

  11. TruckerExile E | August 10, 2020 at 8:32 AM | Reply

    Once again the stock market does not represent the American economy, it only represents the top 5% that they’re still staying rich and we’re getting more poor

  12. Trump is the most incompetent president in US history.

    • Crystal Giddens Trump is fake!

    • @Ravi Actually FDR was the worst pres. A F***ing incipient commie. We should have kept going into the USSR in 1945, and put an end to their BS. However FDR and Stalin were buds. Churchill should have boxed both their ears. Patton was right, we were fighting the wrong people.

    • @Stephanie Adams Who? You? You forgot Fat and Ugly

    • @jake barnes That “communism” saved your ancestors from starving to death. If it hadn’t been for him, you wouldn’t be alive right now since your grandparents would’ve died homeless of starvation. Also, if you wanna bash Russia and the USSR, why not go at it with Trump for a bit who sabotaged our election’s integrity by leaking our intel to Russia in order to get dirt on Biden?

    • Basil McDonnell | August 10, 2020 at 10:42 PM | Reply

      @Ravi James Buchanan arranged for arms to fall into rebel hands before the Civil War. So he’s neck and neck with Trump, though Trump is pulling ahead on total deaths.

  13. So this administration believes in helping businesses but NOT the American people how SAD they are!!!!

    • Helping businesses has a name: Corporate Socialism!

    • This is what happens when the Supreme Court grants corporations citizenship. Citizen’s United is the worst Supreme Court decision since Dredd Scott.

    • @Polly TicksYes, How can Republicans defend Trump?

    • @Denise Hall Pure blind ignorance, confirmation bias and prone to be conned by mega liars. Their minds must contain flaws not to see through his dangerous reelect ME lies. Using the pandemic and downplaying the pandemic is repeated ad nauseum by dupes who listen to Chump but none of the experts. They are contributing to the death count.

    • I’m sad too !

  14. The Republican party they lie they didn’t want to make a deal they want to give you all $200 you get mad but the Democrats are trying to fight for the American people they are trying to give you more and I believe if the Republican party would have set down in at least gave y’all $400 on unemployment and a stimulus check for the American people this would not have happened but they want to put the blame on the Democratic and just like the Democratic said you have to get these schools together for these kids to go to school they have to have distance they have to wear masks these buildings got to be sterilized look what happened in Georgia 12 students and nine teachers all of them tested positive for the Coronavirus you just cannot have that going on then you got kids got to get on buses my kids are grown and plus I am retired but look at it they trying to go into your Social Security and your Medicaid people you got to wake up you got to make it better for your family don’t think about yourself think about your children your grandchildren you got so much to lose this President is playing us for joke jmw

    Trump and Kushner: Tax cuts for the Rich. Crimes Against Humanity for the rest!

  16. If people can’t pay their bills, they don’t need a message

  17. Can’t be a war time president when him and half of his party act like the war is fake.

    • He’s a war time president, he’s just at war with “OUR” country.

    • He is a TV president. Vote this pos out !!

    • It’s a war on poor people, nothing to do with colour or origin🔥I notice many people striving for success, or just to survive,as middle class ,spending money 💰they don’t have,to impress people the don’t know, just so they won’t suffer the same fate of the poor …

    • Johnny Pena politics is played out on media outlets now. If you don’t have look your voters in the eye…it is easier to lie👎

  18. Trump’s criminal incompetence got us here.
    All Decent and Patriotic Americans need to ,

    The LIES keep flowing from tRump and his corrupt comrades.

  20. The entire party is infected with lying disease. They are fake news.

    • Yet they have the audacity to try and portray everybody else as fake news. This country is pathetic

    • That is every bully, criminal, abuser way of counter attack. They know what they are doing so they accuse others before anyone sees their lies. Accusing everyone that disagrees of fake news to try to obscure their actions in the smoke bomb of lies.
