  1. Trump: Why would I lie?

    Thanos: I imagine it’s like breathing for you.

    • @Jock Young, “This video is about one of them”
      you mean rachel’s lying?

    • @Jock Young, “Obviously we are not”
      Obviously from what… msLSD?

    • @DJ PON3 69,
      I’ve been asking these braindead fake news junkies for years to tell me just one Presidential untruth that Trump has told us Americans and they’ve NEVER been able to come up with anything yet.
      – Or they’ll say something completely stupid like, duh… he said his inauguration was the biggest and rachel told it wasn’t!
      – On several occasions knowing it’s not true obama said “If you like your doctor you can keep your doctor!” And that was the last time a President has lied to us!

    • @Rand Kocher Tariffs are easy! Obama wire tapped me! Mexico will pay for the wall. Nice infrastructure plan! Cheap healthcare for everyone! Show those taxes like you said you would! When will Hillary and Obama be going to prison? Comey?

    • Biggus Dickus
      Trump must be a Democrat then

  2. Well, this is about as sick as it gets.

    That is a very sick man.

    • @J M M awesome, OUTSTANDING, AND RIGHT ON THE MARK….. TYSOOOOVM…🇺🇸🗽🙏🕊️💙💜❤️😇🗳️🗳️🗽🇺🇸🕊️🇺🇸

    • @randi hopper so you saying that nobody dies of covid-19.
      Because they of underlying disease or because their immune system went wild.
      Thing is the people with underlying disease would have lived probably for decades depending on their age if they did not got covid-19. Peoples immune system would not have reacted like it did causing double pneumonia and killed them if they did not got covid-19.
      The way you think than nobody does of cancer as well Because at the end it is your heart or rather your brain that gives up.
      You also than don’t die from an accident because again it is your heart or brain.
      Covid-19 is the direct cause people died because without the virus they would be still alive and relatively healthy.

    • @randi hopper Well prove it then doc

    • ​@randi hopper I’m just going off the words you said.from YOUR POST. It’s not debating when I express my opinion about your character based on the words YOU originally wrote ..If you were playing devil’s advocate , YOU SHOULD HAVE SAID SO IN YOUR ORIGINAL POST …THE Same post you have Copied and pasted in other comment threads..

    • Christina Shelton | October 31, 2020 at 8:20 PM | Reply

      @randi hopper well if they didn’t have covid then they wudnt have died from those same ailments that they had long b4 covid & didn’t die from. U make no sense. Ppl have been living w/all sorts of different things & didn’t die but catch covid & they die. Crazy right, strange how they were living w/those things fine b4 covid but as soon as they contract covid they can’t survive the same things they were dealing w/b4! Regardless of if it’s heart disease or diabetes or even asthma it’s manageable but add covid 2 it & it’s a death sentence. Soo all those deaths r due 2 covid because it exacerbates-any underlying illness an causes death. So ppl r dying from covid.

  3. So now supporters are going to “boo” the most essential patriots in this country, now? Cult!

    • @Diarrhea Latte … lol, proud to be stupid? holy cow, Chump loves the poorly educated.

    • @Diarrhea Latte No real values so you resort to name calling.

    • @Ruby Franklin I’m sure Mr. Diarrhea is just a troll.

    • Christopher Oliver | October 31, 2020 at 11:17 AM | Reply

      @JimJim Hong I suspect for some of these folk, the only thing Trump could do to change their vote is actually shoot them so they couldn’t vote at all. Disclaimer: I am by no means suggesting shooting potential voters no matter their stripe; to advocate that would be un-American.

    • @Diarrhea Latte There are so many weird and repulsive things in your comment that I feel sad for you. He is a vile, evil, lying , misogynistic racist moron. His denying the virus does not make it go away. This is shown by all the extra deaths, over 200,000 more than usual. Just a Democratic hoax? You think he is a God, you poor Q. Good luck with your health

    Trump’s closing argument is an insult to the families of victims that have lost loved ones to Covid.

    • @psycobleach46 tullis and your post is about classification of different viruses, not about proving if something is a virus.

    • @psycobleach46 tullis your source is trash😂🤣

    • @psycobleach46 tullis it’s not even a medical journal😂🤣

    • Christina Shelton | October 31, 2020 at 7:38 PM | Reply

      @Sebastian Addict that’s strange my cuz is a very healthy 35 year old man w/no underlying health issues yet he had covid & was in icu 4 over a month explain that since covid isn’t that bad. Several of my fam members actually works in the medical field & they c covid 1st hand & they r scared 2 death, I wonder why? Um maybe cause they actually have 2 deal w/it an have seen how bad it is! Ur makin stupid comments based on pure lies & maybe ignorance. Since u don’t think it’s nothing 2 worry bout how bout u go in2 any hospitals icu an make sure not 2 wear a mask & get up really really close 2 any patient an tell them it’s like the flu or it’s a hoax as they r laying there fighting 4 their lives. Maybe u will catch covid & have 2 fight 4 ur life an then c jus how serious it is. Sum ppl get lucky & only have mild symptoms but def not everybody, so I wonder how u wud feel havin 2 fight 4 ur life like so many others & then have sum1 tell u it’s not that bad. Those of u who think covid is no big deal maybe should 1st go & c actually covid patients b4 u go around like trump & spreading such ridiculous nonsense. Y’all r absolutely freaking unbelievable!!

    • You must realize that Cuomo is directly responsible for 15 percent of the total deaths. Try growing a brain and do some research.

  5. Trump assumes that his voters are as stupid as he is. He may be right.

    Trump’s closing message is every bit as awful as the person delivering it.

    • @Dave Theseller my hospital is rather empty, but yours may be full… ask yourself how many people does your hospital care for versus the population of people it serves. It would only take a very small fraction of a percent to fill them. I am not saying this is not serious, I think you should keep things in perspective. on average the usa has around 47,000 deaths a week, we dont stop the world for them or have constant media coverage of their tragedies. you are brain washed to fear what the media stream is telling you to.

    • @gio So they “slowed the virus”, even if you separated every person in the world for weeks( more would die for lack of water, power, food ect… I mean who would be providing them?) it would not guarantee the virus was gone. We can not stop a virus and the media is controlling you through fear, pretending that we can. People will die from this and it sucks, but more people will die if we give up and hide in our houses

    • @TheRiggz666 uhm… the therapies have worked some 100Percent. the trials take time and have to be tested to be sure…. you are the type of person that denied the world was round when someone measured the shadow of an object in different places on the globe at the same time of year and calculated that the earth was about 8000 miles in diameter. It will take you about 1700 years to figure this out. You probably did not know that is what a guy did back in the greek empire, nobody believed him, but the world was still round

    • Dave Theseller | October 31, 2020 at 3:15 PM | Reply

      @randi hopper Leading Experts on the virus are being shut down by this administration…media is only reporting what they see and some people only listen to the false spewing of lies and twisting of the truths

    • Probably because you are too stupid to understand it.

  7. Choose life…NOT Trump and the Republicans.

    • Marina Moskaleva | October 31, 2020 at 3:47 PM | Reply

      America Matters OK and how’s Trump’s method of starving everyone out of their homes to go potentially die from covid19 while overwhelming hospitals is choosing life? His inability to provide national testing strategy, holding packed rallies after which covid19 cases spike and leaving supporters to die either from hypothermia or heat exhaustion aren’t exactly good for preserving life either

    • COVID 19 CASES
      As of 10/30/2020

      United States (8 946 154) EUROPE 9 560 346 cases
      (American confined w / covid no election here no one to DEMONIZE)

      For the Olympics of Covid Bean Counters of the DNC’s weaponized “political virus” and their corrupt media allies
      engaged in censorship with technology companies, a protection racket with the goal of not letting people
      know that candidate Joe Biden and his son Hunter and other Biden family members are under an active criminal investigation by the FBI for money laundering involving the CEFC China energy with links to the CCP.You would think the American people voting this up coming week should know and be able to ask if a president Biden is compromised by the Biden family business with potentially hostile governments.

      The media and Tech companies are a disgrace, all of them should register as PAC’s and stop the pretense of being “journalists” they even give propagandists an air of nobility compared to the gutter moralizing and the slander they engage in. CNN once was relatively decent, critical of all partisans. I am an American confined because of Corvid in Europe we are not doing better than the US, never have because there are NO experts, rather lots of experts giving it their best guess and quarreling with one another. Europe has had so far ABOUT 9.5 million cases, and the USA ABOUT 8.9 million about the same. There are outliers like Sweden that did not confine or shut down. They made no demands to mask, use them if you want, while last Spring they lost more in their nursing homes and admit they should have protected the elderly better, the rest of the population carried on with only small adjustments to a normal life and they did not wreck their economy or engage in partisan nonsense, weaponizing this virus from China. Poland is another outlier, they decided to give everyone testing positive the only drug they had, the controversial hydroxychloroquine and followed the recommendations of an expert in Marseille to give the drug to people before they are gravely ill (unlike the rest of Europe and the USA that approved limited use did clinical studies and declared it no use, they tested for the most part those gravely ill in hospital where it was least likely and now proven not to be of benefit. Chemo for terminal lung cancer patients does not work either. US media cherry picked the narrative to fit their political agenda. CNN and MSNBC, and BLOOMBERG seen in Europe, seen everywhere in Europe are blackening the reputation of the USA. Most people here do not sort Americans by party loyalty, they do not understand American politics and, in this election, neither do I, only one word applies give me POWER. I say left or right, at the extremes the ends meet. Reprehensibly partisan and bound to cause recriminations and division (the currency of their trade these days) Judge people on promises made and what was delivered within their control. Those that promise the impossible claim to have a crystal ball and repeated their mantra “SCIENCE” (but never took a course) they wound me the most. I did science and to do science be a GD skeptic, as that is critical to the process. Their expertise is weaponizing calamity as reported on CNN “an orange meteor is streaking towards the planet earth” so let the cognitive impaired super hero save the day with his race and gender baiting partner extolling any shade of gray except white (and male) that gives her the reins. Joe if elected should hire a food taster with a lot of life insurance.

      @Jay Hildebran cut the bull I’m NOT paying for these rich people TAXES anymore I’m low wages. And PAYING taxes THAT THEY should BE paying i don’t know where you TRUMP SUPPORTERS get YA’LL advice from! AIN’T YA’LL TIRED OF SPREADING LIES. BIDEN HAS THE RIGHT PEOPLE ON HIS SIDE.

      @Jay Hildebran Hire = “Higher” and you are wrong. Gettin???
      Have you ever thought of using English?

    • Are you saying a virus with a 99.7% survival rate is death?💀

  8. So if it’s all about money why did Trump accept

    1 taxpayer-funded helicopter
    10 dedicated hospital doctors
    3 doses remdesivir
    2 rounds of oxygen
    multiple steroid doses
    experimental antibody cocktail
    chest X-rays
    24/7 monitoring

    • If indeed Trump tested positive for the virus, which we have yet to see documentation of verification, and now that Trump has “miraculously” recovered, WHY isn’t everyone who has tested positive for the virus been given the same treatment? That is the $64,000 ➕ question!

    • Why did the political and social left block the research on Remdesivir, antiretrovirals, and steroid therapy until late July when Europe was successful. Out of petty ego and spite for Trump. That’s why.

      I recommend we stay home, its just the flu. Nothing more! But in todays political climate you need to be passed around like everybody’s hottest piece

    • @freakk out a big shot of Morphine would had done the job…

  9. I still don’t really believe Trump caught Covid. I mean he lies so much what can you believe?!

    • @Smudge Smudge In comparison to the truckload of lies Trump spews anytime he speaks, the MSM, not including Fox “news” that provides most of his BS, are pillars of hope & truth.

    • Just believe whatever fits your narrative. Like you always do.

    • @James Ram to feel sorry for him and take the focus off that first debate he flopped at.. after reading all the bad publicity trump said… ” yeah I will tell them that I have covid19 ” and it worked for you many fools. If this was true why aren’t his supporters demanding the treatment that alleged cure him???!!!

      I thought that too at first, but if you look at those video’s when he was in the hospital still, he did look refreshed, so he must have really received his healing cocktail. Now he’s back to looking like he usually does, so something happened.

      @Smudge Smudge if you think they are lying just use fact check. That’s what I do after watching fox news clips and they are usually false.

  10. That’s so insulting to every medical worker… Smh.

      I hope that when Biden loses he is charged with endangering the lives of citizens . He’s committing genocide on the American people with his uncaring and evil misinformation .

    • @Alex Hamilton lol cant come up with anything intelligent but repetition lol Trump ignored the virus, Trump is the President that somehow thinks he has no responsibility as president. Trump falsely ignored science and common sense telling people to ignore his own CDC guidelines. 230000 dead worst care scenario in the world. Trump was given a. Playbook non partisan to handle a crisis like this but because hes so narcissistic and jealous he’d rather see citizens die because as a Sociopath he doesn’t care about us or the country just himself. He’s commiting genocide and his ignorant followers are helping him with super spreader events and thinking masks evade their rights.
      Joe Biden believes in science, common sense, and is intelligent, and cares about our lives.

    • Not gonna lose

    • @Alicia Taylor republicans believe in survival of the fittest. Trump is leading his supporters to the virus so that we will have less of them in the future. The rallies are human sacrifices for Trump. Please respect the cult members as they die for the leader. In the name of free speech , our thoughts and prayers are with them.

    • @Megadog When your boy loses accept it. Be an American, and wait for the next election. We are still one nation under god.

    There’s something seriously wrong with these people. To believe this proven liar that’s calling Dr’s and nurses liar’s is astounding and sad.

    • He said hospitals get paid more for corona cases. Is that not the truth?

    • @C P
      Say hello to Putin.

    • @C P No, Trump claimed that Doctors get paid more for COVID-19 deaths so they are fudging the numbers for extra cash. Why would a doctor get paid more for a patient who dies of one disease and who would put such a silly system into place? It’s just another BS lie from our unfit and inanely ignorant POTUS.

    • And yes hospital s have to get pay for their service . Thats a fact that any body with 1 oz of brain can understand. BUT WHO IN THEIR RIGHT MIND WOULD BELIEVE HOSPITALS ARE MANUFACTURING PATIENTS IN ORDER TO MAKE MORE MONEY ??????????
      What is more FRIGHTENING you have IDIOTS who would believe it because its coming from his mouth

  16. trump isn’t just running for president, he’s also running from prison

  17. while nero fiddled, rome burned/while trump plays his air accordion, America is burning down to the ground. vote him out!!!
