    Trump will continue to push opening states, and then when he has to shut everything down again, he’ll say he didn’t see this report.

    • @Absynthe The Artist That sounds “sweet,” lol. 😁😁

    • @john doe Only New Zealand and a few otheres are doing ok. European countries reopening will have to go through a second wave almost necessarily. And, no, they are not doing OK, people are dying like if we were in a terrible war.
      We have got to reopen, but, in phases, and with all kinds of prevention measures.

    • @Brent Anderson The Orange pee-sident AKA Pussygrabber in chief authorizes you rant. He knows best.

    • @Sperup AD Biden stuck his fingers up Tara Reade because he liked her legs. He also likes kids jumping in his lap and coming out of the pool to rub his hairy legs.

      @Robert Westerman You don’t need amedical degree to know what a delay is, an engineering degree is sufficient for basic math. The average delay from onset of the virus to death is 31 days and sometimes over 40. I realize for someone as backwards and mathematically inept as you, you may think a medical degree is necessary to do 7th grade algebra., but you don’t.

    If trump WINS the election in Nov…
    The chance of your loved ones dying…
    The choice is yours…

  3. 3000 a day is about 90,000 a month, wich is 450,000 in 5 months. So, half a million American citizens could be dead by November. Think about that.
    It is a tragedy in slow motion.

    • @Brent Anderson Coronavirus doesn’t care about fake numbers, the numbers are what the CDC and other institutions are gathering as data form the field. So, it is what it is, and it is real dummy.

    • @Rich Greene You wish I was on your side, but, Vaddy Poo can’t afford a guy like me. He doesn’t have what I want, he doesn’t appreciate democracy. So, I am not joining your ranks komrade. Thanks for the offer though. lol 😁😁😁😁😁

      @Sperup AD Yeah. Remember 5 weeks ago when theWHO and CDC said not to mask!? REMEMBER?? or when the CDC a, CNN, NYT and WHO said America would have 2.4 million deaths…I do remember Cuomo FORCING NURSING HOMES to take critically ill COVID patients,,, remember?? OH YEAH..65% of all the DEAD in NY were from NURSING HOMES! Thanks Andrew! killer

    • @Brent Anderson I remember in early January that I started making jokes and telling people that the pandemic was coming and that it was time to run for their lives. When the Chinese doctor who blew the whistle unintendedly died, I knew that it was super-contagious. So save your b.s., If I knew it, how come the government didn’t see what was happening?

      Deadly Donald’s negligence is astounding.

    • LOL you all are legit brain dead.

  4. Social distancing is for losers. Let’s see some maga rallies packed into an auditorium, no masks, lots of yelling into each other’s faces, and high-fiving. Hug your fellow patriot! Swap hand-held signs!!
    The Corona definitely ain’t gonna get you if you believe! 😂🤣

    If we still “only” have 2000 deaths a day in June, Trump will call it a success.

    • Fugly’s Follies | May 5, 2020 at 9:36 PM | Reply

      Terry Bryant – Silly trash! Misdirection is for kids!
      Racist Trump’s ban was explicitly racist, and the racist implementation by the racist Dotard was not what Fauci recommended.
      Try a fourth time, dear. Maybe reality will change!😅😂🤣

    • Terry Bryant | May 5, 2020 at 9:47 PM | Reply

      @Fugly’s Follies…… did you know 40 other countries placed the same travel ban where their people came back but wouldn’t allow Chinese nationals to enter? No In fact you clearly didn’t… let me guess trump done what 40 other leaders done yet trumps was the only one that implied racism…. ok🥴 did you know Fauci praised trump for taking the advice? Nope

    • Fugly’s Follies | May 5, 2020 at 9:50 PM | Reply

      Terry Bryant – Child, you keep ignoring my point that Tramp had NO testing or quarantine for the 400,000+ who DID fly into our country from China after that racist ban.
      Sad. And Stupid. Like Trump.

    • Terry Bryant | May 5, 2020 at 9:59 PM | Reply

      @Fugly’s Follies let me put this clear.. again….. I’m gonna do by series of questions is that ok? I just want to make sure you understand the perspective and how you talk out of both sides of your mouth. Let me know when you’re ready and I’ll ask my first question. I’ve already done this to a few people and they never comment again after it’s done lol

    • more children than that were murdered yesterday by the left.

    That’s a 9/11 EVERY day!!!

    Stunning success
    Incredible achievement
    Best ever

    And does anybody in the WH think that folks are going to be going out like normal with that number of deaths….
    Or if they have to, just to get some cash, who are they going to blame and vote for I wonder….Mr tax-cut or Mr old reliable dozy Joe seen two virus outbreaks, managed them, no Biggie…..

    My money’s on a complete rout and humiliation of the Republicans in Nov….

      3000+ deaths a day from cars on the highway. You gave up driving yet? Ready for a suspension of transportation? You feel instead of think.

      Craig Gibson LoL take your own advice. Auto fatalites nowhere near 1,000,000 per year. But please do go out and congregate, preferably with your like minded friends and family

    4 more years of Trump means 4 more years of the coronavirus being mishandled.
    Which means 4 more years of lockdowns, job loss, food shortages, sickness, and death.
    Thanks. But no thanks.

      meanwhile you leftists are sitting there thinking Mexico has less death than Germany, and India has less death than Connecticut. this is the world you see—a false reality.

      you probably think 130,000 deaths in Europe is “good work” by the Europeans

      hieithegreat The rate of obesity would effect the death rates, but have little effect of the rate of infection. South Korea was able to control both, death rate and rate of infection. This is due to effective leadership, organization, and a civilized society.

    Unnecessary deaths due to lack of leadership 😞 I pray that God removes the corruption from our gov’t and that they personally pay for their sociopathic mindframes.

    • This was secretly and sneakily carried out during the World Military Games held in Wuhan from 18 to 27 in October, 2019. It was a good smoke screen for the North agents to approach somebody. The judo competitions were held in the gymnasium at Wuhan Uni of Tech where the Harvard professor had been working for years with a 50,000-dollar monthly salary and research benefits. Probably somebody who was related to the university or the virology Institute was visited by an attractive male or female athlete during the event to which NK had sent its delegate of 156 soldier-researcher-agent participants. This has successfully and cunningly made China and the U.S. to put blame on each other. China created the novel virus and somebody handed it to the athlete. Now who spread it in Wuhan?

      @David Gray what crap, you complained about it as you always do by firstly crying racism like on every other occasion, secondly you did the predictable complaining because you oppose everything your President says just because you are still whinging about losing in 2016. It was too late to be effective? So you must disagree with this shutdown as whats the point if its too late already?

    The only way to frame this as trump continues to lie is that he simply does not care. He’s only concerned about the effect on the election.

    • Ash B I think it’s something like that-it’s a taunt, a flaunt-a hippie white boy with hair down his back bringing his black girlfriend to Thanksgiving dinner in 1968. That’s the socially difficult part.

      The incendiary parts would be that h reeks of marijuana smoke, his girlfriend is noticeably pregnant, has an Afro.

      Then he talks about the Capitalist pigs running the country, and touts the bravery of the Viet Cong and the Wisdom of Ho Chi Minh. As he does, he and his girlfriend exchange the raised fist Black Power salute.

      Then he says they are going to Canada so he can dodge the draft.

      Then they both talk about the wonders of LSD and the sexual freedom to try bi-sexuality, but decided it wasn’t their bag, even though the sec was awesome.

      And not really meaning that much of it.

      It’s the politics of outrage. The negotiation that is not negotiation. The politics of 🖕You. The politics of threat.

      The folks that went to Lansing and stormed the Capitol included a lot of crazies, and a lot for were there for fun and profit. It pure 1968 counterculture theater mean to cause shock and fear.

      It is the new Know-Nothing Party. It was, as Dr, Hunter S. Thompson said: “ Bad craziness.” It is not meant to make you want to join. It’s a movement that doesn’t want to expand the base. It’s a movement that says to vulnerable politicians: “Trump supports us. We’re crazy. You better give us what we want.”
      What do they want? Power. In tremendous excess to their resources and capacities. Why? It’s fun. And I’m sure the Sinclairs are throwing a little money their way.

      It’s a political stick-up. The rallies are stick-ups. Trump press conferences are stick-ups. Trump bizarre statements-well he thinks because he gets away with it at rallies, it works to the nation. And when it doesn’t he gets humiliated and furious. Someone must pay.

      Whenever he concedes, someone must do his dirty work so he can “renegotiate”. Which means “reneg.”

      So, agreement with the states on reopening schedules, and the next day, the “Liberate Michigan”. They got the message. Someone must pay.

      It’s “Let the Wookiee Win”

      Han: Let him have it. It’s not wise to upset a Wookiee.
      C-3PO: But sir. Nobody worries about upsetting a droid.
      Han: That’s cause a droid don’t pull people’s arms out of their sockets when they lose. Wookiees are known to do that.
      C-3PO: I see your point, sir. I suggest a new strategy, R2. Let the Wookiee win.

    • @Ty Soro I agree.

    • @Ty Soro trump 2020

    • No! The second way is this is deliberate. Ta-daah!

    • Ty Soro That had to do with his hatred of the Chinese and his over NO about the Southern border. He could stop someone, and he did so. After that, pure disaster. After that, you got bubkus from Trump.

  20. Remember when trump said it would soon be zero? I think his stroke is revealing his insanity.

    • Don’t worry, sniffy, touchy, rapey dementia Joe will fix things. Just as soon as he can remember what state he is in. That is the best you have to offer?
