  1. Daily Reminder: Trump called Corona Virus a Democrat Hoax that will “magically” disappear.

  2. When Trump leaves office next year, January 20th will be declared a national holiday.

    • eat me don’t ruin your sobriety for that freak he ain’t worth it

    • The Democrats blind vision is as follows.
      They see Trumps arrogance, I see Trumps confidence
      They see Trumps nationalism, I see Trumps patriotism
      They see Trumps racism; I see Trumps words being misconstrued and twisted to fit the bias medias narrative.
      They see Trump causing division in the country, I see Trump a straight talker calling a spade a spade.
      They see Trump as a Dictator, I see Trump a Leader
      They see Trump as an Authoritarian; I see Trump as the only one willing to fight for freedom
      They see Trump putting a stop to migrants, I see Trump encouraging Legal migration
      They see Trump with a struggling economy, I see Trump with an amazing economy before the corona virus took effect
      They see “Trumps America” with violence on the street, I see violence only on the streets by Democrats run states refusing to accept Trumps help.
      They want someone more Presidential and talks well, I see Trump actions which speaks louder than words.
      My vote is for Trump 2020.

    • @Doug Lowe I’ll pour a shot for you but since I don’t know you, I’ll have to drink it for you. Happy Birthday!

    • @bill t Thank you. Stay safe. VOTE.

    • @Shirley Allen Backatcha. Happy birthday. Virtual cheers

  3. Donald Trump is actively spreading the virus, much worse than doing nothing.

    • @Michael Wuj and you need a big dose of common sense and rationality.

      I love you pro lifers, you go around protecting the unborn but then taking away any welfare or health care for the living. Then you also are pro death penalty.

      Why don’t you treat the living as well as you want unborn fetuses to be treated?

      I’m not pro abortion but I notice these extreme double standards and there not right!

    • @Richard Cranium going to the store now

    • Richard Cranium | October 26, 2020 at 11:07 PM | Reply

      @M CC you could be right but he’s still the greatest President ever. I didn’t vote for him because he was a nice guy. I didn’t want a nice president, I wanted someone who was not a politician and there he is. Keeping one campaign promise after another. MAGA!

    Trump knows his base believes everything he says so he plays to their stupidity, not the best interest of the Country.

    • Martin Villalpando | October 26, 2020 at 7:40 PM | Reply

      @bill t the Pied Piper led the rent to their death Trump is the Pied Piper for his followers like Jim Jones like David koresh his followers follow him blindly

    • But because they are so stupid they will vote for him whether trump holds his superspreader rallies or not. The rallies are for one purpose only: to stroke trump’s narcissistic ego.

    • Librarian-at-Large | October 26, 2020 at 7:50 PM | Reply

      all his base who abused children can be sued later. there is no statute of limitations on child abuse in federal cases.

    • @Country Girl Yeah and he’s running out of time, he’s a narcissist who’s about to lose his supply.

    • Evangelicults and Republicults love Trump.

  5. I’ve never understood how they could say the virus is a Democratic Hoax when it is in every country in the world. More Republican stupidity!!!!

  6. Is very pathetic that our own president won’t protect the American people

    • @Blue Eagles 1977 Thanks for the reassurance. But It’s not my common sense I worry about.

    • @Richard Cranium Awesome Idea. My sister died from it. Me and other family members and church members survived it. I guess according to tRump we are herd immunity. Well! I won’t give my blood. I have an immune deficiency person. I wouldn’t give my blood or platelets to support him nor his family even if I could.Lord forgive me

      @lowmardiep d sorry for your loss

    • Patrick Cioffi | October 26, 2020 at 10:10 PM | Reply

      Especially if you’re a Democrat

    • @Patrick Cioffi correct not republiCONS idiots. I wonder how many democrats has died of Covid than republiCONS under tRump? We see he holds his republiCONS rallies and the coronavirus spikes everywhere he goes. Lol. Not democrats.?

  7. Trump plans to “let the virus wash over the country.”
    Let’s send a message and let our VOTES wash him right out of the White House!!

    • @Blue Dawg Dems did nothing to effectively control covid .. they did not even want to shut down air traffic from China. Dems allowed rioting of thousands of leftists to continue for months.. mostly all they have done is use draconian control tactics against small businesses and their political opponents .. Dems going out and marching with thousands of BLM protestors.. while banning church services.

    • @#j G
      80,000 per year do not die of flu. At worst, that many might die in an extremely severe year; but not on average. Hyperbolic much?!

    • @MAC
      If the mainstream media were leftist in any way, the US would never have gone to war in Iraq, we would already have M4All, the GND, and Bernie Sanders would be the Democratic nominee. 80% of the media in the US is owned by just six large corporations. If you think those corporations would support any kind of a leftist agenda, then you have 0 idea what leftists believe in.

    • @Bintu DeenOnce Trump is defeated, the White House will have to be sanitized, disinfected, dusted, prayed for to exorcised it of evil spirits, baptized, sprinkled with holy water and mainly to drain the swamp of corrupt nasty slime, vermin, snakes, rats crocodiles, alligators, etc. that present in human form

    • @MAC
      The people who protested were individuals making individual decisions to put their lives on the line for something they believed in. Those protests would have been much larger had covid not been an issue. I know my elderly parents would have protested if they could have. But at least those protestors did wear masks and attempt to limit the spread of the virus some. Right wingers aren’t even trying. They’re being spiteful brats.

  8. Trump has redefined what it means to fail. His total and complete abject failure as president will be read and talked about by historians for generations.

    • Make America Sane Again | October 26, 2020 at 9:24 PM | Reply

      @Michael Wuj If Biden’s campaign has been an absolute train wreck, why is Trump losing so badly across the board? Because even a train wreck is better than 4 more years of Trump. That’s why.

    • @Michael Wuj forget Biden, challenge your man and stop making excuses for his failings… look at the latest bs about COVID… We are turning the corner he says as the country continues to almost break new infection records daily!

    • @Make America Sane Again Because America is on the way down and out ? Because GOD is not happy with our sins? Because its true, once again, that there is much fake news out there? Perhaps all 3. Have you been paying attention to anything for the last 4 years, other than the Commie news sites?

    • Make America Sane Again | October 26, 2020 at 10:30 PM | Reply

      @Michael Wuj There are no gods. The idea that grown adults can believe in such fairy tales is astonishing. It explains so much about the world, though.

    • @Make America Sane Again it’s * Barron 👍 however, a good comment

  9. Vote for America back together as one healing our nation ,bless you all and your loved once . 🌊🌊🌊

  10. Pence puts his trust in Trump. I mean God . Honestly, I don’t think he sees a difference.

  11. In my 70 years I have never seen such a catastrophic failure in leadership from a western leader

    • Let’s vote him out

    • Excellent comment! Stay safe and healthy!

    • Pretty sure Carter failed miserably with the energy crisis. LBJ screwed the pouch with Vietnam. And if Biden is elected you can clearly say you’ve never seen such a senile, child sniffing, corrupt politician in your life.

    • @Zombobo Smith – they said WESTERN leader..🤦‍♀️. That doesnt include Africa!

    • Elaine Burnett | October 26, 2020 at 11:07 PM | Reply

      @Zombobo Smith I did read your response to my comments. I am still not sure about your statement. I think I now understand why. I am not aware that Zimbabwe or the Congo are considered part of the concept of “western” countries. As far as I know for many Americans there is a confusion about Africa in that most of us would be hard pressed to name, 10 African countries. In fact many Americans are not aware that Africa is the name of a Continent-not a country! Although some African countries aspire to incorporate their governments along “Western” political ideas of democracy, some are dictatorships while others are Socialist and I think a few are considering Autocracy and even Theocracy. At any rate, I am aware that because of the colonial period that disrupted the various African countries- there is much caution and some deep resistance for many African countries to identify themselves as “Western” in their thinking or political aspirations. So with this in mind, I will stand by my earlier comments. I will be a little flexible and retract my comment about why you should not have added two African countries to your analysis of poorly run countries. They may well be poorly run, I don’t know enough to depute that. Also, I really do not know what connection two African countries have to the idea that the Trump Administration is possibly the worst run governing body in American history. Thank you for helping me exercise my “little grey cells” As you can imagine, being stuck at home there are few chances to have to think about another adult point of view. Even if we did not agree, this was fun!

  12. So campaigning is considered “essential work” the cdc and pence basically just spat on every doctor and nurse in america.. that’s sickening.

    • Not the CDC. They’ve been sucked into this unfairly.

    • Brux you said that so perfectly it should never be said by a president that it is what it is and then to get covid and say I’m stronger and never felt better when so many not only loving America but have died so very sorry for all the people who have lost their loving family members to this devastating illness

    • Not the CDC

    • Hes spitting on all americans

    • Christine King | October 26, 2020 at 10:07 PM | Reply

      @Librarian-at-Large Glad you pointed that out. And, the use of the Secret Service, military personnel and aircraft, White House staff, how much of those expenses will be picked up by the campaign or Republican party?

  13. Bernie Rustermier | October 26, 2020 at 7:27 PM | Reply

    You can’t fix stupidity. PERIOD

  14. The White House admitted what the general population has known all along. There never was nor will there ever be any kind of coherent plan from this administration to fight this pandemic.

    • Name anything that could be done not already done. Trump cant help that 65% of democrats pay no income tax and roughly same number deal with chronic diseases caused by lifestyle choices.

    • Diana Robertson | October 26, 2020 at 7:43 PM | Reply

      …OR, TO DO ANYTHING FOR THE PEOPLE, ONLY FOR THEMSELVES!!!!!!!!!!!! Vote all republicans out of office when they come up for re-election, or this devastation will continue!!!!!!!!

    • Barbara Carpenter | October 26, 2020 at 8:12 PM | Reply

      Just like his imaginary plans for medical care.

    • Barbara Carpenter | October 26, 2020 at 8:15 PM | Reply

      @Blair White FOOL,I’m a democrat and I paid more taxes at 18 than trump did in America in 2016 and 2017 and I am now 80. I’m pretty sure I have paid more taxes in my lifetime than the swamp creature

    • Or anything else for that matter. They’re too busy bankrupting the entire country like his “business dealings.”

  15. Donald Trump……Not only the worst President of all time…..possibly the worst American of all time!

    • @Dianna Monks dayyyymmm I didn’t know that the entire country of China grew arms, legs and a mouth, then got on a plane and started spitting on every single surface, and wiping its hands and butt all over our country. I’m very impressed!!! Which scientific journal did you get this incredible information from??? I MUST KNOW!!!

    • @poopsock if you don’t think China knowingly spread this virus to the world, you better start reading. Bring the world to their knees and move in

    • Charlene Brash-Sorensen | October 26, 2020 at 10:46 PM | Reply

      Did you forget this is about the “Christian” Vice President? Yeah…trump has been horrible but here is this “messenger of Jesus” who is risking peoples lives for his own ego.

    • @Dianna Monks I bounced on my boy’s love pole to this comment FOR HOURS!!!

    • @poopsock you are disgusting. Not even relevant.

    He couldn’t even protect himself….. WORST PRESIDENT EVER

  17. Thomas Guercio | October 26, 2020 at 7:39 PM | Reply

    He cares about nothing but feeding his own ego.

  18. If Pence was doing ‘essential work’ he’d be doing his JOB as COVID Taskforce leader! They’re a JOKE!

  19. Marife Santiago | October 26, 2020 at 7:52 PM | Reply

    All he cares is himself, he doesn’t care about us, we need to vote him out and send him to where he should go, Prison cell.

      @Chris Barker I’ve been saying that for a while – he’s a PRIME candidate for defecting.

    • ,,,and most likely he will not attend the inauguration ,,,!

    • Make America Sane Again | October 26, 2020 at 9:59 PM | Reply

      @Chris Barker Thing is, once he’s out of office, Putin will have no use for him. He’s probably safer here facing the US Justice System than he’d be there.

    • I’m in New Zealand, I’ve been watching all this play out because I know it will affect my country. I was saying back in 2018 “This dude doesn’t give a sh*t about his own people” and also in that year I remember talking to buddies and I said “Either trump will be impeached and removed, or the republicans will show their corruption”

      My mates laughed and said “Nah that won’t happen”

      Lo and behold….

  20. “Do they not feel any shame?” … This was answered by our leader – “No, I don’t take any responsibility”

    • Please remember he also said of those that voted for him he likes ” uneducated people”.
