    Arms crossed…..negative body language…..liar..liar…pants on fire

      It’s like the sun coming towards a vampire. Being in a room where someone is telling the truth has a weird effect on him.

    • lexa harpell | May 7, 2020 at 8:43 AM | Reply

      South Aust here also….’ tremendous’ means he is lying.
      SA is doing so well!

    • Arms crossed is defensive. He did it while the nurse was telling the truth. Like a child.

    • lil_shiro🌊 | May 7, 2020 at 9:57 AM | Reply

      Actually crossing your arms isn’t negative body language, its a emote of self-love. Your doing so implies the need to secure oneself or give emotional comfort. This speaks _leagues_ to his false confidence and authoritative assertions. Trump’s body language and lying here indicates he’s misconstruing intelligence, to grant himself a semblance of control.

  2. Shame on that thing sitting down, that nurse is the hero

      You Are A JOKE

    • @Ron Wuerch I’m happy to be a joke on the other side of the world nice and safe where am I allowed to go and walk in safety knowing my government has done the right thing for the people it represents even if it I didn’t vote for them, with free healthcare when you can’t afford it. I’m happy to be a joke then

    They should all have worn their masks and kept 6′ apart regardless of what he wanted.

  4. Tracy Cooley | May 7, 2020 at 8:05 AM | Reply

    Wearing the same mask for WEEKS!!! I’d call that a lack of supply

  5. Pardeep Parmar | May 7, 2020 at 8:06 AM | Reply

    Once the virus gets completely out of control the Trump administration will blame doctors and nurses, mark my words. Trump takes zero responsibility for human life

  6. I work at a hospital and he is FULL OF BS about having enough masks, but very honest about selling the N95s to other countries POS

    • Dustin Stein | May 7, 2020 at 10:29 AM | Reply

      @Mayan Ruins which way you want to look at it? 1. We have tested more than any country in the world & it’s not even close. That is fact we’ve tested over 8 million now. Some countries haven’t even done 100k let alone 1 mil. But we’re no where near the top for tests per 1 million population

    • SUAVE VISION TV | May 7, 2020 at 10:52 AM | Reply

      I’m in the medical field as well. No PPE provided (just recently got a face shield from them but no masks). I had to and still do pay for my PPE. That’s if I can even find an N95 mask.

    • nexus solaris | May 7, 2020 at 3:52 PM | Reply

      @Dustin Stein America is almost a whole continent. To compare yourself with just… “countries”, that really does not play in your favor a lot, does it? The population of my country is not comparable, how can you use that as an argument??

      @Doreen Cloutier 😂😂😂

    • Dustin Stein | May 7, 2020 at 5:39 PM | Reply

      @nexus solaris that’s why you have to take the tests per 1million population. Then it’s fairly comparable

    Why would he contradict her she is the frontline
    She would know more about that issue better then mr trump HORRIBLE

    • Did you notice he frequently used the phrase “i heard”, so later on when he realized he was wrong he can just say “well i didn’t say it, i heard it from someone”

      @princesssadieloo That is actually so true, now that you mention it! funny lol 😀

    • nexus solaris | May 7, 2020 at 3:46 PM | Reply

      @Finn Jake He always phrases his words in such a manner that he can figure out some back up plan that he knows his stupid audience will buy. That is in fact the only secret to succes that he knows. Unfortunately, it turns out we seriously underestimated the amount of stupid people in the US, and that is why this thing is turning out of hand beyond proportion. Nobody would have ever imagined there where so many of them in the US, we actually where optimistic enough to think some of you people actually had brains…

      So horrible. 😔

  11. Bonnie Weiss | May 7, 2020 at 8:20 AM | Reply

    With his “tremendous supply”, maybe he could offer this nurse/practitioner an extra N95 so she doesn’t have to re-use hers.

  12. The excuses are so lame, the blame game is almost moot. I just can’t believe that 41% of America is still falling for that trick.

    • tom smith headstuck deeply,

      many peoples are saying, oxygen deprivation is health hazardous.
      Butt head hey! Ewe are in luck. I hear hydroxychloroquine cures just about anything. Try it. What do ewe have to lose?

      Something tells me i am to late on the deprivation warning?

      Good luck with that.

      @James Christie omg its sickening. I’m from the UK and by now there would be a vote of no confidence. How on earth did he become president.

  13. Trump says he was left with empty cupboards of PPE, but he has been in office for 3 years 🤦

    • Trump will never invite someone to speak freely. They are all lectured prior to meeting with him to not contradict him. That way he looks like the winner. It’s all part of his scam.

    • casadekarlito | May 7, 2020 at 11:01 AM | Reply

      @Fred A ….That’s how a dictator functions…not a president. Under Putin this nurse would find herself flying out a window like the 3 doctors in Russia did who complained.

    So that nurse is reusing a mask… And Mr. orange face is then saying that they were going to send PPE to other countries. Interesting

    • If he’s got masks to give to other countries why is the nurse using the same one for days. Doesn’t that say her hospital has none. That orange POS just F’in Lying as usual.. Ooooooo he Boils my Blood 😠

    • Bling 22 This situation is unraveling. Stay strong!

    • @ThisVESSEL GodsTENT
      Orangutan … From Bill Maher joke , that T-Rump sued him for , trying to prove in court that his father is not an orangutan = proves that T-Rump does not know what a joke is .
      T-Rump him self constantly claims he knows everything best , what ever the topic is … and still we have not a single records from any school that he actually completed something .
      Its republican MO starting making death threats if someone contradicts T-Rump … Dr Fauci gets them , Mueller gets them , republicans even send bombs to Obama ,Clintons and CNN … luckily republicans are not at all as competent than ISIS , other than that there is no difference , remember that republicans blocked AUMF under Obama to fight ISIS , when the 3 page application was too long for republicans to comprehend or they were working with ISIS … pick one that feels better .

      ​@Bling 22 Trump sent out thousands of mask to hospitals that even requested them, did he not? Have you looked up the reviews from these hospitals? which hospital is this lady from? Are there comments from owners of these hospitals giving Trump thanks for his speedy response concerning equipment? Have you searched or even asked around yourself? Or is your observation analysis merely based on this videos title? Also, do you truly know if this nurse is really using the same mask for days? Do you truly believe that this dolled up nurse with her contour and lipstick is using the same mask day by day?

    • ThisVESSEL GodsTENT | May 8, 2020 at 11:48 AM | Reply

      @Pete Lind If someone said that my father was a tiger, i would take them to court so that they can have a chance to prove there statement as a joke back on them.. Now that would be funny and i find Trump’s response in doing that much more hilarious and ironic considering it being a joke. I’m sure trump can take a joke. But if you were getting constant jokes and slandered thrown at you for years on national television and decide to throw something back, so your wrong in doing that?

      Also, where is the proof that Trump sent bombs to cnn, clintons and obama? Also who was responsible for isis being formed in the first place? Who left thousands of guns and other weapons in that country where isis was supposedly formed? Do you know? Do you have proof of your claims in your previous comment to me? Who all is connected? Is hilary, bill, obama connected in anyway? These are questions. That is all. God Bless you.

    • @George Brousseau I disagree I think Trump will indeed do time Pelosi has said she wants him jailed, he has done way too much for not to let him walk I think a lot of people around him will also end up in jail, the Dems need to show NO ONE IS ABOVE THE LAW he is hated for what he has done to the office

    When Trump crosses his arms you know he is lying. That is a defensive move.

      As the response to the covid19 outbreak from tRump Administration at all levels has shown the USA was completely unprepared for a slowly creeping pandemic, let alone a biological attack that would overwhelm it all at once. Since January 2020 no National organized testing and contact tracing plan. The White House and Reporters get daily testing, so they can work SAFELY! EVERYONE wants to go back to work! Everyone deserves a test! ALL USA CITIZENS MATTER!
