  1. VOTE. This race is NOT over. The only way to get rid of Trump is to vote. Do not let the media lull you into thinking this race is over. If we don’t want ANOTHER 4 years of this absolute disastrous performance by Trump, people have to go vote for Biden.

  2. Donald Trump is killing our country

      @mike313 Joe Biden is just a shell and even when he wasn’t senile he was a pathological liar…. but in the dementia state that he’s in he won’t last long as president and will be controlled the entire time….

    • @Richard G Barry yeah I really don’t care who wins, as long as they do a great job!

    • Dan Dan
      is this post 1000 yet of “Donald Trump is killing our country
      ?” You are sad LOL

      @COJO Here is one you did not even think up, but is happening right in front of your eyes. We have given up our right to not be assassinated in our own country. Trump, offers no protection from foreign hit teams. Russia is now offering bounties on our Military soldiers. That is the new reality. It was always Trump, plan, to silence the population. Do you remember Jamal Khashoggi, a Washington Post News Correspondent, who was killed while visiting Saudi consulate. A crew of 15, use a bone saw to chop him into pieces, just like the crew of 15 that brought the Twin Towers down on 9/11. All came out of Saudi Arabia. The Trump, administration did nothing.

    • @dave rodkey not fact, opinion, And you are free to have that opinion. I disagree, but that is still your right until you re-elect the fascist into office.
      Trump is a fascist-fact not fiction by definition, look it up he fits it to a T
      The economy was Balloning not growing, which means the bubble would bust soon. Sure he continued Obama’s rising gains in the market, and might have pumped a bit extra out with the tax breaks for companies that NEVER used it to invest in the market, more industry, or more workers 😉 just like they said quite clearly that they would not.
      Sure the job market continued the downward stretch that Obama had started and went down at the same rate Obama had it going.
      What else did Trump do for the economy…well he opened his mouth and fingers on twitter and scared wall street two different years and lost all gains for that year in the final month of the year 😉 Yea that is a winner isnt it. Just wipe out the gains for a full year by saying stupid crap because he is not smart enough to stop and think before tweeting. Then he did it again during this pandemic and made it worse, helping the US lose 7 TRILLION dollars in GDP while he was at the helm because A: he never took charge B: he Never committed to helping the states so it was Chaos ( trumps admitted preferred way of responding to anything) C: he doesn’t have a clue HOW to lead D: he couldn’t keep his fingers off twitter with lies and upset the markets again 😉
      SO No, perhaps in your opinion everything was fine, but I remember him trying to get into war with Kim, then loving him, the stupid trade embargo with China that is costing US the US taxpayer BILLIONS ( he has already given the US farmers their welfare checks this year to the tune of 35 billion and is thinking about another 12 billion more…that is why they still love him and this does not count last year which was in the multiple billions also)….Tell me Trump is not a socialist!!! all he does is give money away but it is to his buddies and the rich people that dont need it. So No in MY opinion, which counts as much as yours everything was Not alright. Far from it, Caging children, attacking that general in an Unlawful attack against UN, Geneva, and general World regulations on those types of things, supporting putin, befriending despots, encouraging our enemies, discouraging and abandoning our allies, encouraging chaos in our streets and violence, complete lack of diplomacy, complete lack of understanding negotiations or deals, and repeatedly showing a complete lack of humanity.
      Go Dance the bear Rus, right now you are not dancing, you are riding the bear head first into a wall over and over. It is sad, and the performance is just getting worse. No, wit, no juggle, no panache

  3. Trump is spreading disease throughout the United States. This information is being kept from the public.

    If you think about it, we’ve seen so many republicans that have turn over thier votes to Biden, so if someone asks which party they belong to, of course, they will answer republican, because they are fighting to get thier party back, by voting for Joe.

      I really hope your not including Powell and generals who lied to all of us about getting into the Iraq war to make war mongers on BOTH sides of the isle filthy rich. Please tell me you aren’t falling for that bs.

      @Sam Clegg
      Biden had 1 house & no real money when he started in politics 47 years ago
      A basic salary & the best health care as a senator. He now has 5 luxury homes & cars & big bucks how did that happen on a teacher’s salary & basic senators salary. ??????

    Steve Bannon himself has said, Trump need only lose 1% of Republican voters and will *lose.*

  13. Florida cannot afford Trump…too many seniors will die.

    • @Hyperpandas that is an absolute lie..at a certain age and under certain conditions it will not be up to the individual but, up to the government who will control it to say whether or not the procedure will be worth it..The older one gets the less of a chance they will have and at a certain point, cut off..
      Not so, under private health care..

    • @Truth Hurts How did Democrats undermine the effectiveness of Trump’s partial closing of travel and trade (I don’t think that actually occurred, btw), and why do you think those were especially effective policies with respect to Covid 19? Moreover, if Trump can just make recommendations to states, why would he get credit for the difference between the 2 million deaths projection and the actual 220,000 deaths?

    • @Jeff Woods And if you don’t have the money to pay for the care in a purely private system?

    • @Truth Hurts, why is it that Trump supporters seem to have exactly no original thoughts? Seriously, I could write a computer program that could perfectly mimic the typical Trump supporter.

      “Cuomo.”

      “Bzzt! Nursing homes! He killed the elderly!”

      “Federal pandemic response.”

      “Bzzt! Not Trump’s fault! He shut down flights from China! It’s up to the governors!”

      “Covid death count.”

      “Bzzt! Only nine thousand deaths! WITH Covid, not OF Covid! People run over by cars count! Follow the money!”

  14. Who will bail out DeSantis when he runs for reelection? He is toast.

    • Think About it | October 26, 2020 at 2:01 PM | Reply

      He most Definately is…

    • @Think About it He is probably betting that Trump wins and he can get a gig in the WH. I think all the governors you see doing his bidding are looking for that. Another example of the governor of S. Dakota. It is shameful and criminal in my opinion. These politicians do not care about the people at all. They care about enriching themselves. I have never seen such a betrayal by so many.

      @Papillon 2010 …I agree with you 100%…we never had a lock down only a crewfew for like 3 weeks….
      These ppl here don’t like wearing mask…I refuse to go into a business that does not require mask…infact I’ve invested bear spray…
      it has a nice affect for those who don’t want to keep their distance…which is 70% of the population here

  15. DeSantis, Scott,Rubio and Trump can be credited for the Graveyard Theme Park, that is now Florida

  16. The only Justice in America is in the streets and in our hands right now. Vote!

    • Walter Godsoe
      well, I have seen Democrats Justice in the streets of Portland, Seattle , Chicago, New York and many other cites. No thank you.
      You can keep it.

  17. If ex-felons were allowed to vote, like Floridians voted in 2019, Trump, DeSantis, Scott and Rubio would not stand a chance. It was only the Republican led legislature that threw a monkey wrench into the will of the voters. Throw the rascals out!

    • @Johnston Corey both presidents did a bit to fix the system, unfortunately neither Obama nor Trump did enough!

      Prison is big business in the USA. The stockholders are not going to let it

      Isn’t that Pelosi wants criminals to vote not Republicans.

      @Alex Hamilton excellent comment

    • Johnston Corey | October 26, 2020 at 10:01 PM | Reply

      @Papillon 2010 So the crime bill that was made by Biden that put a lot of black people in prison, that have learned higher education, which by the way in case you missed it, that bill also cut funding to prisoners to get higher education, but we can skip that part if you want. I also didn’t say they wouldn’t vote I was asking if they would vote Biden.

  18. This is what Trump has sown; All Democrats will vote Biden; not all Republicans will vote Trump. That’s his divisive self

  19. She’s right on the $$. I still have faith that at least 50% of Republicans aren’t complete morons.

    • I have only a smidgeon of faith in republican women. It seems like the men just double down and deny deny deny that Trump is incompetent.

  20. Governors like De Santis need to be indicted for negligent homicide.
