  2. I’m Canadian and I’m offended for the American people. A disgusting, absolutely, unforgivably disgusting government.

    • Not the government my friend.. it’s the president taking control and fighting and firing people who don’t don’t agree with him

      曼查狂人 Blatantly untrue. Definitely sounds like a IMPOTUS (Impotent President Of The United States) move, but he’s too busy doing press briefings and going on FOX news blaming hundreds of thousands of American lives on Liberals, Democrats and China to mobilize troops anywhere. Not his fault one bit the response to this deadly virus was enacted 2 – 2 1/2 months too late now is it? Oh yeah, that’s right it IS the presidents lack of response that’s to blame… We’re all going to die because of a Cheeto colored narcissist who’s ego can’t stand an ounce of responsibility. We’re doomed! HELP

      Richard Milhous Nixon I honestly think this is probably the first time in history the Queen has been called a broad lol! I’m American too so at least I get the sentiment… Italian, German or Irish? Only three I’ve ever heard use the term lol.

      Why would you be offended by the american people? What you know about the american govt is what is happening now! Weren’t you all crossing over every chance you got? Don’t bundle our history in 4 miserable years of a hugh mistake of a nightmare and dont pretend you know what we’re going through.

    I am sick to the gills. Not by coronavirus. But by seeing this incompetent Orange face spewing misinformation day-after-day.

  4. For someone that was saying this virus was a hoax is now blaming governors for not being ready lol. What a joke of a president.

      He’s not canny enough to be a saboteur … he’s a puppet – of the Neo-Cons. They know when they have a ripe, juicy sucker on the line to do their bidding … he loves the attention, the artificial applause of the propagandized, those equally as ignorant as he, of the machinations of those in power. He’s the perfect tool •

    • @Carol Oldershaw Let’s just reiterate that: TRUMP IS A PERFECT TOOL!

    • CALL FOR trump TO RESIGN!!!

    • Indeed!! He makes no effort and yet he wants all the credit. Did his Mommy not tell him that credit is due only to those who make some effort ??

    He keeps saying everyone else should’ve acted early when he himself waited until the critical hit due to the massive deaths that are happening

    • David Christophersen | April 5, 2020 at 6:58 PM | Reply


    • He needed time to play golf…just to relax from his responsibilities…

    • He is a “Genius” at maths and a very stable one!

    • No amount of denial will erase the solid fact that Trump is personally responsible for all the deaths he caused with his indecision and arrogance. He is by definition one of America’s worst killers.

    • Its just a flu, it’ll be gone by April, theres nothing to see here! That my friends, is Trumps Covid-19 legacy no matter how he tries to rewrite history. His obtuse followers may fall for that but the History books will not!

  7. Trump declared a national emergency when he wanted a Mexican border wall, but now that thousands of people are dying everyday it’s up to the states to handle and it’s their fault for not doing better 🙄

  8. *As the DIARRHEA Pumps out of his Mouth, People are DYING in the Thousands..*

    How can you be a “wartime president” when your daddy bought you a disability to avoid war ?

  10. 5:31 Did he look just a little confused there, like he’d never seen the word Covid19 before?

  11. It’s sad and astonishing to see so many people are still supporting this ruthless pathetic liar!

    • they need to lie to themselves to support him, it lies all the way down.

      Better English you’re honestly perhaps 1 of 3 people I know who can even admit that. I honestly respect your candor. Makes me think just perhaps this country might recover from this bumbling, narcissistic, sociopath after all!

      Many thanks for if nothing else, giving me an iota of hope! Stay healthy and safe my friend.

  12. Oh yes, “they should have done that while the price was low”, so why didn’t you do it?

    • Emma Willard | April 6, 2020 at 11:39 AM | Reply

      @J T I am not one of the alleged “we” who saddled the Nation with the Orange Faced Flim Flam Man.

    • Emma Willard neither am I. But we are a part of a community that has stopped communicating and understanding. We have stopped trying to help each other see there is no benefit in society that doesn’t come from others around us. We do not accomplish anything on our own. Everything we have and have yet to gain is by the will and grace of others. Sure there is the INITIAL and sustained factor of personal impetus. But we must take responsibility for the outcomes of our our democracy because it is we, not you or I, who together produced that result. I feel shame, embarrassment, guilt, and anger at the fact that a Trump is president. But I know that it came to be because of a society that started to separate and segregate based on economic class lines. It disparaged the laborer even if one has to think intelligently and cultivate skill to sustain such a life. It disparaged the basic and incipient morality of Christianity and lacked in a way to evolve such a moral code into modernity.

      In short, we are responsible, because we stopped talking to each other and including each other, all for the need to distinguish ourselves for our own vanity’s and ego’s sake.

      @Jing Chen – actually, they are needed in normal times, just not at scale. The responsible agency can send the items to states, say one year before the expiry date, after they get the replacements. Plus, the expiry period is 4 to 6 years.
      Also, Forbes did a report where there are (until they are totally sold) *lots* of PPE in the US, but they are being sold to overseas companies. The reporter personally saw *380 Million masks sold in one day* and lots of other PPE. The reasons hospitals could not buy them is the sellers needed proof of money right then, and the hospital procurement system is not setup to do that.

    • J T well said!

    • ​@mrbanditoxyz normal surgical mask expires in only 1 to 2 years. otherwise the middle layer of the mask will lose static electricity and lose the ability to adsorb the virus (over 90%). maybe the N95 or more expensive PPE can last longer, but you don’t see doctor wearing that in normal days. Technically it will cause a lot of waste to stock up these for a pandemic level, you simply don’t need such a large quantity in normal times. I also don’t see any government in the world does that, so you see a shortage of PPE everywhere in the world. I believe it wont be enough even the US ban the export of all the PPE (like what the other courtry did ). It will help but in the long run is more practical to subsidize the factory to produce more in such times.

  13. Trump should just straight out quote Homer SImpson “This is the fault of everyone in the world except me.”

    “Pass the buck” instead of “The buck stops here”. How the honour of the presidency has fallen

    We’ve got bans, beautiful bans, we had bans first, before anyone ever thought of bans. I invented bans.

    Oh totally, no one has EVER heard of a global pandemic and it’s totally reasonable to think the governors, who don’t have access to the classified briefings like the federal government does, should have been able to “see this coming”. Totally checks out and makes sense🙄

    • And it’s totally reasonable to expect states, which cannot print US dollars to “handle this”, while the federal government, which CAN print US dollars, just gives $6tn to big corporations while people die for lack of simple masks.

    • I totally agree with you on this… i made a music video call ‘Putins Toy’… i think you would apprciate. Its on my channel. It’s a satirical punk rock anti Trump song featuring some of Winnipeg’s top musician’s and female vocalists. I wrote the lyrics and do the lead vocal. KCs Funhouse I hope you find it a humorous diversion. Feel free to leave a comment I value your opinion.

  17. The Trump administration is the laughing stock of the rest of the world. Roll on November.

      yup he’s certainly a laughing stock in Australia, but also a SERIOUS threat to us & the world! Has your media reported that we have a travel ban on your country cause of the HUGE number of infected people you sent us? More than double any other country! Despite far more travelers from various other countries!

      There’s NO WAY you’re removing him in November though is there! We’re getting used to & learning to understand American incompetence now & expecting him to remain president for life

    He never accepts responsibility for anything. Such a small man. Let’s get rid of him on November 3rd.

  20. Worst president ever. He’s just nasty and disgusting.

    • Lucifer Samuel Ra, fallen angel and destroyer…half of the evil since the garden of Eden, the other half is related to the witchcraft of the moon signs in the Vatican, Lilith / Isis so what do you expect?

      They create systems for fools to worship them in religion and governments, but then the true God destroys their wicked societies they create.

      This has been happening since the times of the beginning, Sodom and Gomorrah one of the most well documented.

      The Masons that formed this country worship Lucifer, so does the Vatican among other things.

      God destroys false worship systems and the nations that follow them always has and always will.

      You want to know judgement? The day?

      The grave yards tell the tale, from Jews, Masons, Catholics, Muslims, Christian, Atheist..They all trust in a false god and sometimes the goddess of the moon with her many satanic names and they all die.

      What part that you should worship God alone was not made known to you?

      From the beginning to the end of the bible this conflict documented, the false systems of the beast systems seen as a false worship system.

      You were told not to give your power over to the beast in worship, stars are not the true God, nor are moons nor are men or women.

      God proves it every time reducing all vessels to dust from whence mankind came as a reminder.

      Always pride before the fall..fall of nations fallen cultures, fallen star religions..
