  1. He means that he will force the coverage to disappear. He also wants to send the message to his supporters that members of the Cult of Trump cannot be hurt by COVID.

    There has to be two Donald trumps , cause no one man can be that stupid.

    • You say no one man can be that stupid, but remember he has a large staff to help him.

    • @Jules Nagbunga It is unreasonable to expect reason from the unreasonable.  One thing ethical people forget, is that when they know the indisputable truth, they believe they will win the debate.  But logic and reason only have power when they are recognized as such.  Trump is the best possible illustration of this.  He continues to claim his handling of the virus is better than any other country, when the opposite is true, the facts are in plain sight, but that does not deter him in the slightest.  The truth will not set you free or buy you a cup of coffee when dealing with one who absolutely refuses to recognize it.

    • WAKE UP EVERYONE!

      When people find out the virus is not real, they are going to lose thier minds. For some it will take FEMA pulling out the gilloutines before they chose to wake up to the truth. People love lies as there is no truth in them. End of this world… nothing new.

      @Montalbano PS: Have you been over on Beau’s channel?

    • @Margaret Nicol We got a big green environmental movement in the 1980 after fish died in rivers and pollination went to far.
      And we also where the battleground for a possible nuclear war so we where sceptical with nuclear energy because it’s difficult to find a storage for the dangerous nuclear waste.
      This was the origin of the green movement here and after Tschernobyl we massively tried to get nuclear security very high here and thought we would be safe.
      After Fukushima happend even the conservative party switched there position so that the parties of over 85% of the voters at this time wanted out of nuclear.
      And support green environmental friendly power production with wind , solar, biomass etc.
      That’s why we have a very high know how in this area to because we wanted to turn greener as a whole country.
      So the politicans hear more what people want here and they may be less currupt because the political parties get their money according to the votes in elections from the system
      So the parties are only dependent of about 10-15% by donation far less than in the US.
      Because with big money there is big corruption.
      But corruption is also here because individuals are weak but it is far less systematic here.
      The 10-15% is an estimate I can’t look it up that fast right now.
      But the most of the money comes from the state after elections.
      Having a multi party system makes voting also less tribal. I voted for all 5 democratic parties in several elections over the years. Because of different issues.
      But I never voted for the far right or the far left because they destroy democracy in he long run. I understood the US problem far better after seeing this one.

    • @Margaret Nicol I ment the Citizens United decision and Olbermans comment on this.
      His analysis at the day of the decision is just frightening.

      No I don’t know this channel please give a link.

      @Montalbano Sorry. There were no subtitles and I don’t speak German so could only comment on what he was doing.
      Here’s a couple of examples of Beau. He seldom talks politics as such but even he is getting frustrated to the extent that he’ll mention ‘his’ name now. Don’t be fooled by his looks! 🙂 It’s a very civilized channel.
      An old one that I loved: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1BMl6phxWpU&t=3s

      @Montalbano Sorry for delay. I’m back again. Just had a chance to look at the video. That was horrifying. 1984 had nothing on that video. He must have had a crystal ball indeed. Would you mind if I shared it.
      Did you get a chance to listen to Beau?

      Ken Price – so you’re suggesting that the virus is non existent.. and therefore all those doctors worldwide are in on a “grand” conspiracy? And all those dead have been fooled into dying somehow.. right.. I guess you fall into the 35%.

    • Well, yes, it does it take it out of you, doesn’t it? Puts a new perspective on his stumbling trip down that ramp, he’s just getting so terribly tired….

  7. trump is unraveling.
    He’s been more or less unraveling for most of his life, but the notion even he must have now about having totally lost the control he didn’t really have over the situation with the covid 19, while also seeing Biden surpassing him in the polls, has him unraveling at top notch speed.
    He never was friendly with reality, but now he has cut off the relationship completely.
    Holding grotesque rallies in the middle of a pandemic, retweeting ‘white power’ and tweeting that black lives matter is a symbol of hate, shows how desperate he is and how dangerous he is becoming.
    Can someone responsible please pluck him out of there! Before he starts war, with or without red buttons…

    • LITERALLY THIS

    • Lol. You get your news from an establishment corporate news channel, and believe that you are well informed? Almost 100% of America’s establishment corporate media is owned by a small cabal of 15 elite globalist billionaires. You need a red pill, sheeple.

    • ​@Richard Marsh Don’t misunderestimate the influence of the flat earthers. They have representatitives all around the globe. And they have nothing to fear but sphere itself.

  9. …….and you wonder why the EU has shut its borders to Americans? There is no leadership in tackling this pandemic in the US and the rest of the world can clearly see that. 🙄

      @Ken Price

      The virus isn’t real? Medical science is a hoax? Virologists are NWO operatives? Doctors are just in it for the money? The Earth is flat? You are not a foreign agent spreading misinformation to cause even more problems for the USA? We can trust you? Because you know the difference between DNA and RNA and have cured thousands of sick people during your long and illustrious career in medicine?

      Who are you trying to fool? Yanks ain’t stupid mate. Well not all of them anyway. 🤣 🤣 🤣

    • @Tanner Wilson
      Even though you hate Trump, but because of your government’s failure to contain the pandemic that has gone out of control now causing 130000+ deaths and the infection rates keeps on rising it is our best decision to ban all US citizens simply because you don’t obey the health protocols being imposed like wearing facemasks when outside, the fear of spreading the virus on our local population by overwhelming our healthcare system and dangerously overstretching the healthcare workers, because of the reckless behavior you shown across the world it’s just right not allowing you in different parts of the world. Sorry about this, you need to change your character not just your leadership.

      Dennis I’m doing everything possible to stay safe and it’s incredible maddening to see. It’s not just our President but the Governor Greg Abbott (Texas) hasn’t been that great. He opened up way to fast and way to soon and our state is paying the price. Living in Dallas we haven’t had as it bad (yet) as say Houston. But it could get that way very quickly.

    He gets tested multiple times a week, if not daily. No one now, without a proven test is gonna get close to him. But the rest of America it’s O.K, it’s will disappear like your family members

      Covid will dissapear when kiddie fiddler communist democrats start Burning, Looting and Murdering. We know this from Communist News Network and the CCP controlled DNC.

    • You may ask about the coronavirus, which is very well under control in our country. We have very few people with it, and the people that have it are … getting better. They’re all getting better. … As far as what we’re doing with the new virus, I think that we’re doing a great job.

    • Trump will disappear when voting time appears …
