  1. Everytime an anti-masker comes into a store, they should play that interview over the loud speaker. Lol

    • @All0Mighty0Power you created your own conspiracy theory, based on nothing, about an online personality that calls themselves “unpaid troll”. let that sink in for just a moment.

    • All0Mighty0Power | September 10, 2020 at 2:08 PM | Reply

      @unpaid troll Your create lies one after another on an account named unpaid Troll let that sink in for just a moment maybe than you’ll realize why no one believes your obvious BS.

    • @All0Mighty0Power you have yet to show one provable lie, is it because i have yet to lie perhaps? at least have an argument lady

    • @o o well don’t ask for our wool when the fever chills start. It’s amazing after all of this people are still crying hoax. Think of a mask like a baby with a diaper. If you don’t have on pants baby has no diaper and pees, well you both get wet. You with pants baby no diaper you still get some on you but as much if you were pantsless. You with pants baby with diaper. Baby is wet but you are dry. Lol And if the baby has a good diaper on properly, no leaks! Granted you have a good pair of pants (mask). lol 😂😜

    • unpaid troll why everyone else will be wearing one lmao

  2. Correction. Trump admits to lying not downplaying. Small but important semantic detail.

    • I knew this hard kernel of truth would bring out the tongue flickers. Enjoy your time in the sun terrible lizards, there’s a meteor coming with your name on it.

    • Roy Bean OMG!! Bombshell!! Breaking News!! BS!!!! MSNBC is NOT showing Fauci speech because he actually KNOWS and is stating the TRUTH that Trump did NOTHING wrong or against the medical professionals and they surely DO NOT WANT YOU TO KNOW THE TRUTH!!!

      And Fauci himself was live stating the FACTS that NOTHING Trump said was not accurate or misleading!! He is on record saying that NOTHING Trump said varied much from what he or the other scientists/healthcare experts shared with him!! The ONLY thing Trump tried to do “was to not get the people all down about it”, meaning he did HIS JOB by not causing panic!! That is what they call ‘being Presidential’!! These are the ACTUAL FACTS that, once again, MSNBC refuses to tell you. Instead, they give you an interpretation of an excerpt from a work of fiction presented by someone who ABSOLUTELY HATES Trump!! Think For Yourselves!

    • @S boy you lizards are funny with all the capital letters and blah blah blah. Facts trigger you much?

      @Atheism Kills I entered US on april 1st through NYC. Idk where u get your news from dude coz there aint no ban.

    • @Atheism Kills Trump only partially put a travel ban in place 30k people came in from China after the travel ban and loads more came in from Europe and especially Italy. Trump ignored advice in early Feb to recommend strict social distancing which would have saved lives. In early March there were only around 1500 cases and less than 45 deaths in the U.S. Governors probably did not know what was about to happen, but Trump did. Trump did not listen to his task force because they went against what he wanted, he knew what the virus could do and he lied about it, he has said so in his own words. That is a fact.

  3. The con man in the WH couldn’t care less about anyone but himself, Wake up !

  4. Trump said on tape the virus spreads to children and by air in march BUT OPEN OUR SCHOOLS ITS SAFE PRAPAGANDA

  5. Biggest traitor and criminal in US history

  6. And refused to wear a mask, STOP LYING!!!

  7. And he continues to push kids back to school. Inexcusable.

    • @William Bailey not to worry AstraZeneca will be rolling up your sleeve very soon for your DNA RNA vaccinations chock-full of Health

    • Don’t worry KVM my little ignorant sheep. AstraZeneca will be rolling up your sleeve very soon now take your RNA DNA vaccinations and don’t resist

    • @William Bailey I have gravel in my driveway smarter than you, shitwad

    • Now the cat is out of the bag n he cannot hide any longer, he was forced to admit it with another lie that he didn’t want to cause panic.Then why blame China government for covering up. China authority is trying to play down the Covid virus like Trump so as not to cause any panic to the world.

    Thats one really pathetic dirtbag. Always plotting to take advantage even if costs people their lives.

    • What exactly did he gain from that?

    • MechanicalValve TimeTraveler | September 10, 2020 at 1:05 PM | Reply

      @InstinctSome self adulation he just likes to talk and get through conversations. He goes wherever he’s lead. Im sure he was proud of himself and probably unaware of how revealing this would be. He gives himself away every time.He was proud of himself im sure

  9. Loser and chief 45

    Will
    Be voted out nov 3

    Biden 46

  10. Daily Reminder: Trump said that Covid-19 is a Democrat hoax that will “miraculously” disappear.

    • @S I do BIDEN 2020

    • Proof,Chavez? Oh yeah, it’s your feelings that count.

    • @Richard MacLean NO MORE YEARS! NO MORE YEARS!

    • jesusgonzalez99 Even if Trump brings back jobs from some companies China can still make more jobs for their ppl they won’t interfere with a presidency just because of that. Covid was tested and it was proven not to be manufactured btw

    • Now the cat is out of the bag n he cannot hide any longer, he was forced to admit it with another lie that he didn’t want to cause panic.Then why blame China government for covering up.

  11. Where I come from we call that premeditated murder.

    People have lost their mother’s, father’s, son’s and daughter’s because he lied……..the moron has to go!

    • Imagine if Biden was President, how many more would be dead instead because of his ties to China. Trump called for the China ban on January 31st and Joe Biden called him xenophobic. Joe would never have closed the China border.

      Lots of sheep here

    • @Jose Castorena I agree, Biden and Horizontal Harris are awful.

    • You need to look a little deeper. The FDA refuses to let those dying mothers, fathers, sons and daughters use the hydroxychloroquine that can save their lives. That drug has been around for decades because it WORKS, and two reputable French doctors (Perrone and Raoult, check them out) are using it and SAVING LIVES with it. The FDA has let more people die than Trump ever did. And you can thank the mainstream media for following the FDA’s (Fauci) false narrative.

    • @Amour Vérité HYDROXYCHLOROQUINE

      EXTENSIVE CLINICAL RESEARCH SHOWS THAT HYDROXYCHLOROQUINE IS INEFFECTIVE AGAINST COVID -19.
      THE DRUG HAS SERIOUS OR LIFE THREATENING SIDE EFFECTS AND SHOULD NOT BE USED OUTSIDE OF CLINICAL TRIALS!

    Omg. Who would vote for him? All those people who lost their lives to his negligence.

      @Hampar Turfanda he didn’t
      “turn out” to be. He always was that way. Psychopathic narcissists never experience personal growth.

    • NEGLIGENCE you say, well you need to look a little deeper. The FDA refuses to let those dying mothers, fathers, sons and daughters use the hydroxychloroquine that can save their lives. Hospitals are asking to use it and are REFUSED. That drug has been around for decades because it WORKS, and two reputable French doctors (Perrone and Raoult, check them out) are using it and SAVING LIVES with it. The FDA has let more people die than Trump ever did. And you can thank the mainstream media for following the FDA’s (Fauci) false narrative.

      @Amour Vérité YES, I say negligence, He ignored the science on covid, downplayed the disease,lies constantly,won’t promote mask wearing,that’s just a few things. So yes, he was negligent.

    • @Jeanette Huamilton I didn’t say he wasn’t negligent, and yes, he was, and I wish he was more respectful of all of us, BUT he isn’t the most negligent. The FDA is FAR MORE negligent to REFUSE A HELPFUL DRUG to prevent thousands of deaths. So who let more people die? Not Trump and you know it. Those French doctors are saving lives by correctly using that drug. At least no one can say that those doctors were negligent.

    • Jeanette Huamilton | September 16, 2020 at 9:14 PM | Reply

      @Amour Vérité The fact remains that he was told by his own people in January, about this virus,he waited 70 days before taking it seriously. He called it a democratic hoax. The Fda is working on a safe vaccine, but trump wants to rush it. Had he listened to his people,and the science,we probably wouldn’t be in this mess.

  14. Trump said THE DEMOCRATES HAVE A NEW HOAX THE CORONAVIRUS . MEANWHILE HE KNEW IT WAS REAL . . REMOVE TRUMP NOW . HE HAS CAUSED TOO MUCH PAIN

    • @S HELLO IF I WANT NEWS IT WILL CERTAINLY NOT BE FROM YOU . GO SPREAD YOUR PROPAGANDA ON FOX GOSSIP OUTLET .

  15. There we have it – the confession of our genocidal president.
    Vote blue.

    • At least he confessed, but Hilary never did.

  16. Anyone with a functioning brain already knew this was the case, but to actually hear him outright admit to it is incredible.

  17. Woodward: “Nixon was a crook”
    “Trump is a crook and literally a danger to the country”

  18. He’s just going to claim that he’s never heard of himself and “he only worked for himself for a short time”.

    • @S Jesus Christ! What’s it gonna take?! You’re willing to watch America burn to the ground just in defense of this lunatic?! What is wrong with you? More than 190k of your fellow Americans died, some of them because they believed the president that the virus was just like the flu. WHAT IS IT GOING TO TAKE TO WAKE UP? 🤔

    • @Ice 247 😂😂

    • S are you CRAZY !!! If a building is on fire but yet trump does nothing. Because he didn’t want to cause panic. He rather watch the people DIE. That’s you logic

    • Now the cat is out of the bag n he cannot hide any longer, he was forced to admit it with another lie that he didn’t want to cause panic.Then why blame China government for covering up.

    • @Doranne Renga I think S deleted their comment. But yours was great. I agree with all of it.

    It doesn’t matter. Nothing matters. Trump could make love to a squirrel on the White House lawn. His supporters don’t care.

    • @brain plumber and in another tape, he told Woodward all the new weapons we had. And he was fact checked. We do have some new type of weapons we don’t want our enemies knowing about. OOPS. Trump told. Now they will be hacking our military to find out what it is. He is such a moron.

    • @L Diamondz nobody,, nobody in this world is more idiotic than him other than those supporters who out him there . Now he is playing the ‘peace making card’. Why wait until 2 months before the next election n then announced pulling the troop out of Afghanistan n Iraq. Obviously he is trying to fool.his cult members again n get their vote. Once he got elected, he will come up some bullsheet excuse n lies and have them back in countries to create war again. Terrible immoral moron.

    • Trump’s Russia and white nationalist will still back him no matter what. They want a white America only. ):

    • @brain plumber Like Americans can’t see through that? It’s so transparent. I agree. He’ll pull the troops, maybe. Then if he wins on Nov, he’ll either say they need to be sent back, or send them somewhere else. Anything he does from now to election day will be no more than a political stunt. It would have been done his first year or 2 in office, if he really wanted to do something.

    • @dumptrump You’re right and you’re right again. He can do no wrong to his loyalists.

  20. I can see the minions now dying to defend this antichrist. Enough is enough, we deserve better as a nation. Thank God for video and audio recordings, facts speak volumes.
