      Nobody ever accused him of being “like a smart person” except himself. 😂

    • I’m from Ireland and every morning I wake up and the first person I see in the news every morning is Trump because he’s done something even dumber than the day before

    • abaka parasatuwaya | May 20, 2020 at 3:59 AM | Reply

      maybe, look if you have 91000 death and 1.5 million case you have about 6% mortality rate, but if you have 4 million case and 91000 death you only have about 2% mortality rate, you cannot manipulate the death because of death certificate but you can manipulate the case depending on how you make the test. BTW 2% mortality rate is better score than 6% mortality rate.

    • Yolanda Denny | May 20, 2020 at 7:49 AM | Reply

      What he is failing to mention is we have the highest death rate too. This is happening in the supposedly greatest health system in the world. Not mentioning the deaths does not make them go away. The virus is out of control in U.S. –that’s what the numbers are telling us. He should be alarmed by the result. What is his plan to curb it? More bragging..

    • well then trump-oh, i guess you ARE doing a good job. 330 million people minus 1, have been wrong.

  4. Colleen Kelly | May 20, 2020 at 1:02 AM | Reply

    Sorry Trump – your logic doesn’t work.
    China is a larger country than USA = 4,634 deaths
    India is a larger country than USA = 3,303 deaths
    United States = 92,258 deaths

      @Tranxhead I really don’t think they are any less transparent than the average country. They’re likely to have undercounted, but the real numbers shouldn’t be too far. If you compare their death ratios to other Asian countries like Vietnam, south Korea, China’s numbers aren’t that unusual

    • What she said, makes no sense

    • Dan Delgado | May 20, 2020 at 9:46 AM | Reply

      @Tranxhead Everybody knows by now, there is no reason to trust anything said by China or Russia or North Korea or WHO or the CDC of Trump & certainly never believe a word out of Trump. In fairness, do you think any country has been “transparent” with the details. They know now, that COvid-19 was in France before December 27th & when WHO heard from China of a mysterious pneumonia patient cluster was December 31. The virus would not be identified as novel for even one more week later, on January 7th. The first death due to, or clearly connected to the novel virus was on January the 11th, five days later. It was in France already & who knows where else.
      It wasn’t considered deadly until they can be sure it is clearly on its own, actually deadly (Jan 11) & even this we still see people try to dispute.

      Ray Sue we really don’t, from Korea.

    • You are right

  5. I’ll believe Trump is taking hydroxychloroquine whenever he voluntarily releases his taxes.

    • If he was taking it you know he would have said he was taking it first. It was only after he started talking about it that it seemed to pop into his head. It fits his m.o. tho. The truthful hyperbole approach, what ever he thinks sounds good Is what hes gonna say and if he doesnt like the response he just switches it over entirely

    • @rob I Changing the narrative on him selling weapons to the saudi’s without congressional approval/over site using the war time act.

    • Carlos Leon | May 20, 2020 at 4:09 AM | Reply


    • I believe his taxes are still being “audited” 🤣

    • You know he has lied when he opens his mouth.

  6. Greg Wilcox | May 20, 2020 at 1:07 AM | Reply

    It was a false study that was paid for by the govt . This guy puts his foot in his mouth everyday everything he does is corrupt unethical and a lie .

    • Even when he puts his foot in his mouth he’s still able to lie his keister off!

      That can be attributed to one of two possibilities. Either his feet are as small as his hands leaving him the opportunity and space of yapper to lie with impunity, or as Ralph Kramden of “The Honeymooners” use to confess “HE HAS A BIG MOUTH!”

    • greg …get off drugs…please!!

      Tony unlike trump I don’t take drugs or maybe u didn’t know trumps an amphetamine junkie

  7. 😆😅🤣😆 what a rude so-president

    Trump is not taking Hydroxycloroquine. He is taking viagra. Some WH staffers have noticed in and have been laughing about it. So he is trying to pass them as something other than viagra.

    U.S., a declining empire in an accelerated mode.

    Almost dead? Man this guy is seriously sick.

  12. Yeah, and imagine how many fewer cases we would have if we didn’t test. we might even have zero if we didn’t test….Trump logic

    “The more a society drifts from the truth, the more it will hate the people who speak it.” George Orwell

  14. This president of yours is pathetic, America.

    • Tony 1)I never trust China is still totalitarian country. 2) I do believe the numbers are incorrect are much higher as for 2 month your prezident still rally coronavirus as democrats hoax . 3) my friend just recovered from coronavirus for the first 10 days was just like flu she wonder why the people make such a big deal then in 3 hours she cannot breed without ventilator the treatment is so aggressive that if you are not healthy you die. So dear Tony take it seriously see the around the world what happens see other leaders and see yours and with “injecting disinfectant “ was the candy of the cake. Look around you and see what America become a joke world leaders are laughing about the ignorance of your president. By the way the slogan “Make America great again” is wrong America is a great country now Make America respected again because nobody trust America leadership. God bless as all stay safe

    • @steven clark …we are doing great!! …CNN…the HATERS …hate it…but we are VERY HAPPY!!

      We are not doing great because of morons like Tony here.

    • @Yolanda Denny…gloating?
      NO…I tell the TRUTH without EMOTION…facts…numbers DON T LIE..
      Trump HAS DONE A GREAT JOB..he worships america..China can not buy him.. they bought most leaders..etc..I am a liberal ..disagree with Trump on many issues…but I TELL THE TRUTH!!

  15. Humpty trumpy sat on the wall, humpty trumpy had a great fall, all the evangelicals and GOP men could not fix the scum of the earth back again. Vote this a-hold out of office and let there be peace on earth.

  16. “Pro Trump doctors” sounds ominous. Like Pro Satan priests.

    • Daren Halfpenny | May 20, 2020 at 8:33 AM | Reply

      I guess one thing you can be sure of is that whoever that doctor is has been very well paid off and guaranteed anonymity over this, or has a gun to his head. Actually, it’s the gun to the head thing. 100%.

      Isn’t pro trump and pro satan the same thing tho?

    • Sounds kind of like Satan worshippers. Only the FBI spent years investigating the allegations and when they were finished they concluded zero concrete evidence of any such practices and that it was largely a creation of christian zealotry distorting what they were seeing( they saw what they believed they would see- exactly like Trump cult members- ignoring any evidence that would conflict with what they’ve already decided is the truth.
      No proof will persuade them they’re wrong- even RECORDINGS OF TRUMP SAYING SOMETHING ON CAMERA AND THEN THE NEXT DAY WHEN THE “FAKE” NEWS ASKS HIM ABOUT IT HE FLATLY CONTRADICTS WHAT WE HAVE ON FILM AND INSISTS THAT THE MEDIA IS MAKING IT UP. How do you communicate or even try to deal with such a person. You can’t. And unfortunately the people that still support him and believe what he says is true- they rationalize everything away out of terror of learning that they’ve been fooled by the Big Orange Hustler with his tiny little hands and his integrity made out of spoiled jell-o.
      One thing that’s sadly funny is how easily Trump manipulates his sycophants into doing his bidding, undoubtedly killing some when he coerced them to liberate themselves from this mortal coil under the pretense that covid-19 was a hoax. Fox news better dial their lies back a bit if they want to have any viewers left after this is all over and the donald is wasting away in his padded cell after all the crimes he’s committed- those being the ones he’s bragged about so far, -who knows how many more criminal activities he’s clandestinely been engaged in. It boggles the mind.
      Postscript-if somehow Trump is not charged with any crimes after he leaves office at the end of the year. If Republican voter suppression and right wing shenanigans work, and the Russian’s succeed in fooling enough voters once again, and Bill Burr purges the Justice Department of its last honest prosecuters.
      4 more years of that may completely turn the JD into the prosecutional arm of the WH. In which case if I was Barak Obama or Hillarly Clinton I would get out of the country immediately.
      His ENDGAME is obvious. Thanos was a paragon of honesty and decency compared to our morally bankrupt electorial college appointed pseudo-leader.

    • @Daren Halfpenny it’s doubtful any doctor gave him such bad advice, remember what happened to Michael Jacksons pharmacist physician?
      He made it up like he’s probably lying about taking the hydroxy.? .. chloraquine? Close enough? The only thing we can know for certain is that if the Orange One says it- it probably isn’t true.

    He needs to stop talking he is murdering people he is not a doctor. That’s rediculous the way he made that statement.

      When you’ve got ties to Big Pharma and can make money on a crisis like this, who cares about truth?

  18. He call them RUDE and never ever answer a question! Taken as he has No FN ANSWER, no plans in place

    Trump calls someone rude? Now I think I’ve seen everything! 🙆🏻‍♂️

  20. The doctors who gave hydroxychoroquine to very sick patients “were obviously not freinds of the administration”? Did he really SAY that?
