    Trump doesn’t care

    • Crystal Giddens> 84% SMH 🤦🏾‍♂️ The Country is divided over ideological differences. I don’t know your age but In the 80s there were these commercials supported by Senior Bush’s wife’s “Say no to Drugs” In the commercial a man breaks open an egg in a hot frying pan and say, “This is your brain on drugs.” Fast forward today & the same analogy holds true. “This is American’s brain on politics.”

    • mafyind> I agree but they are desperate people.

    • 88Gibson LesPaul> Neither do I but these people are desperate. They think they’re loosing something they never had.

      @William H Music 2020 if that is a bad thing then I don’t support America. My tours in Iraq and Afghanistan were for nothing I guess. Now I am starting to see why vets commit suicide at such an alarming. It’s because of people like you.

      @88Gibson LesPaul I hope we get a chance to chit chat after the election 😆 🎶

    It’s hard to believe anyone can be so stupid.

    His main feeling about the people who die is annoyance that they’re making him look bad

      @Ken White You made the claim. the burden of proof is on you… I guess you can’t prove it because it’s not true… You lied…

      @Ken White If you democrats are so smart, why can’t you survive without food stamps and housing subsidies… At least I don’t need food stamps to feed my kids…

    • Again. You can be helped with your Dunning Kruger. Consider your options. You really shouldn’t fight with smart people. You’re unarmed

      @Ken White Smart people can debate. Stupid people abandon debate to make petty personal attacks because they can’t defend themselves intellectually. Which one are you doing?…

    • @Johnathan Martin I like how you changed your name though. That last one was hilarious. Lol!!! Mr Irony.

    Doesn’t it seem like he doesn’t know how to really “read” statistical charts so he just makes up what he wants it to be?

    • Better English | August 5, 2020 at 3:16 PM | Reply

      It looks like his staff give him very simple charts and he still struggles.

    • He just automatically believes he is always doing the best, and he cannot even see any evidence to the contrary. Any evidence to the contrary is automatically labeled as “fake news.” And this isn’t even just a label. He actually believes it is truly fake. And because of his constant confirmation bias, he never actually learns anything to refute what he already believes. Which means he stays dumb. Furthermore, dunning-kruger is at play. Because he is so mind-blowingly dumb, he is also extremely confident in his genius.

    If he wants credit for something how about being the worst president ever

    It’s like watching a child who didn’t do his homework do a presentation in front of the classroom but the teacher is not having it.

    • Keith Christie | August 6, 2020 at 4:57 AM | Reply

      Cameron Brooks Excellent post Cameron. That’s exactly how it seems! His voice rises (panic mode). Keep him away from the nuclear launch codes! Even if he didn’t mean to, his fidgeting could inadvertently trigger the end of the world…… And he would still deny he had anything to do with that😃

    Trump has won the “Homer Simpson” Award. The only president to win it.

    It’s like watching a school child justifying his bad grades to his parents…. But son your grades are still bad no matter how you look at them….. 😂😂😂

  11. Worst president ever in world history!
    “It is what it is.” Remember those words when you lose the election dodo donny.

    Trump is like a student trying to prove his facts are correct when his teacher is telling him it’s not. He gets an F

    Only in his little mind, we are at the bottom of the list. LIES, LIES, LIES REMOVE THIS CLOWN.

    • @artur wachowski So a lie is killing people?

    • artur wachowski | August 6, 2020 at 11:35 AM | Reply

      @Jimmy Lewis people are dying anyway but everyone is signed as covid 19.
      what happened to the cancer stroke and high blood pressure victims.
      Americans are obese so you got answer why so many died

    • @artur wachowski there might be a hole in your tin foil hat, fix it before it’s too late, 5G is coming!

    • artur wachowski | August 6, 2020 at 5:51 PM | Reply

      @Raoul Duke is coming you hypnotized sheep.
      stories about tin hats leave for yourself.
      the time will show who was right.
      awaiting: )

    • @artur wachowski Go check out an ICU for yourself, don’t wear a mask.

  14. Trump lacks a sense of awareness. He is going through the motions without any input from his brain. Hey Republicans, do we need a president like this?

  15. Trump: ” I don’t care how many people die, unless they owe me money, then it’s a tragedy…”

  16. What an ignorant president, US doesn’t deserve this guys, is so embarrassing and republicans want him again. Everyone vote please.. save 🇺🇸

    “Because, He’s a clown”!! Not a president. And he’s not taking these death’s serious.!!

    This guy doesn”t’ know how moronic he is.

  19. Virginia O'Flaherty | August 5, 2020 at 4:35 PM | Reply

    The President doesn’t care what anyone is going through.

  20. I don’t even think Trump realizes how much he is lying anymore
