      VOTE, complete the census and then help others do the same. Dr. Bandy X. Lee, Yale School of Medicine wrote May 13th in the DC Report, “Genocide: Trump’s Final Solution To Immigrants And Minorities “Let’s Call His Purposeful Bungling of the Pandemic Response What It Is—Genocide. According to the United Nation’s Genocide Convention, the perpetration of genocide requires an “intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, racial or religious group.” Since the White House itself has acknowledged the disproportionate deadly effects of the virus on minority communities, the intent can no longer be denied.” I would include the elderly & other vulnerable populations. Trump doesn’t need gas chambers when he’s got COVID. And please keep questioning Mr. Woodward’s myopic & unethical six month delay on releasing vital information. Woodward &Trump knew “what & when”. It has been very well documented. Those tapes… without question they would have made a difference about a couple hundred thousand lifetimes ago… Thank you

    • @Nine Fools Wise thank you

    • @Paula Gandolfo You are welcome 🙂

  6. He’s leaving a trail of homicide behind him. They just don’t know they’re dead yet. Some of them are so stupid, they’re killing their families. He is committing negligent homicide every single day.

    • Brian Nave you are right. Trump and his gang of cowardly Trumpublicans have been suppressing the real numbers which are WAY higher!
      Trump just admitted such to Woodward.
      Buhleev me…

    • Michael Bray You didn’t even watch the link did you?

    • Brian Nave like a Trump voter, I just “go with my gut” and do what feeeeeels right.
      Trump has hit on real issues but offers absurd solutions that “feeeel” right but you know, deep down inside, that the solutions will be long term, involve compromise and honesty.
      For Donnie, that is three strikes.

      Wonder where the trolls are ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

  13. What is Compulsive Lying Disorder?
    Compulsive lying disorder, also known as pseudologia fantastica or mythomania, is a condition that describes the behavior of a habitual liar.

    ​While compulsive lying disorder is actually not included in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-IV), except as a symptom of factitious disorder, many psychiatrists and psychologists consider it a distinct mental disorder.

    In the past two decades countless hours of research and multiple papers have been written regarding this issue, though it remains one of the most under researched psychiatric conditions. Individuals with the disorder simply cannot stop themselves from misrepresenting the truth.

    People with the disorder are not able to control their lies and experience no guilt regardless of how the lies may affect themselves and others. The lack of guilt is frequently the result of the fact that the individual becomes so caught up in the lie that they are telling, they begin to believe it themselves. If confronted with a lie they have told in the past or one that they are presently telling, they will be insistent that they are speaking the truth.

    Over time, the individual will become so adept at lying that it will be very difficult for others to determine if they are, in fact, telling the truth. There are no exact figures regarding the number of people that suffer from this disorder, but has been found to be equally common in men and women and usually becomes very apparent in the late teens.

  14. Trump’s new plan is to convince America they didn’t see and hear him down playing coronavirus while he continues to downplay Coronavirus, as we near 205,000 expired Americans.

  15. Chaos, lies an confusion is the only trump has ever known how to do his entire life

  16. Please vote BLUE at least for THIS election!

  18. No he really did mean to say “ herd mentality “ it’s how he views his rally goers.

    — Kayleigh McEnany, Fox Business, New York City, February 25, 2020

    “I will never lie to you. You have my word on this,”
    — White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany, May 1, 2020
