  1. Trump is trying to believe his own lies. How insane is that. This is the new America.

    • Mango Mussolini will do anything to make himself look good in front of his idiotic worshippers, even if it means becoming an enemy of the very party he is supposedly allied with. Yet his supporters still refuse to see he is an egocentric megalomaniac who only cares for the top 1%, not the average citizen.

    • New? I dunno… it’s got a few dents and scratches, and it’s not even off the assembly line yet.

      I wanted a more sporty model like the other kids parents have, but nooo… you all wanted to “buy American”.

      No, you can’t take it back… it came, “as is”.

      No, you didn’t forgot to get a receipt, it was a cash deal.

      Well… next time do your research, gosh!

      @Nano _”Yet his supporters still refuse to see he is an egocentric megalomaniac who only cares for the top 1%, not the average citizen.”_
      You’re so right! He wouldn’t deign to spit on anyone of them to put the fire out, unless he could pick their pockets and then stomp on them first.

    Smart Americans do not believe Trump,Smart Americans believe Fauci.

    • This happened because people voted a snake oil salesman who can only speak in HYPERBOLE…

      @Crimson Spirit Did you not wear a mask because Fauci said they didn’t work? Because I wore one anyway. The science hasn’t changed. The availability of them has. Trust them if you want to. I read and think for myself.

      @Kingmobmor God gives us the spirit of discernment so we’re not fooled. At least, not easily. I can’t tell you how to listen to God. That’s personal and something that develops between the two of you as you develop a relationship with Him.

    • @Franchesca ONeal Good answer.

      @Franchesca ONeal fauci never said masks don’t work… fauci said “you don’t have to wear a mask now” and he later came up to say that he had to say this because there was very little supply for masks at the time and he didn’t want people to horde them because first responders needed them desperetly

      I would lie to protect the first line of defense too if I had to, don’t blame him, blame whoever put him in this position, trump

      Trump didn’t produce enough PPE at the early levels of the pandemic and was too busy calling it a hoax

    “Pollo Grande” has everyone around him tested…but discourages testing for everyone else.

  5. Dont believe your honest eyes.
    But believe your close ears says this president. Full of lies.
    VOTE BIDEN 2020

  6. Poor Donnie, he’s always getting in trouble and he never does anything wrong.

  7. Anyone who does not recognize Trump’s lunacy has sanity issues as well.

  8. “This is an administration that is very eager to be in control of the message but is not in control of the virus…”
    Robert Costa is quite bold to call the President of the U.S.A. a virus on national TV.

    He’s trying to lower his poll numbers again. Every time he speaks of covid he sinks deeper into his swamp.

    Spinning a message is not leadership. Its desperation to avoid consequences.

    There is no truth but Trump. America doesn’t have a President, it has a wanna be god.

  12. BEVERLY Jones | August 3, 2020 at 7:17 PM | Reply

    Trump is abusive … WHAT IS WRONG WITH THE GOP…… can they allow him to call ladies pathetic simply because she disagrees with him…..terrible role model

  13. When Trump looks you in the eye and speaks he’s either lying or spouting utter bs.

    It’s NOT an administration, it’s just a horribly pathetic joke!

    Trump is a fruit loop.
    Americans are paying for his stupidity.

  16. Trump Talk Translated:
    “Many People have told me” = Voices inside my head
    “A lot of people don’t know” = I just learned
    “Believe me” = I just lied
    “In Fact” = I’m about to lie
    “He’s a great guy” = I will deny ever knowing this person after they begin to tell the truth about me
    “MAGA” = Making my pockets fatter off the American tax payers
    “Nobody knew” = Everyone knew except me
    “Huge” = moderate to below average in size
    “Loser” = someone who makes me feel inferior due to their talent or accomplishments
    “Policy Briefing” = Watching Fox News
    “Liar” = Someone who tells the truth about me
    “Fake News” = Real news

    He is acting like Hitler in his bunker.

  20. When Trump says “everyone” he means himself. Everyone can get tested, if their name is Donald Trump or if they come within a mile of him.
