    My wife who is Thai just told me and showed me that the “World Health Organization” just asked Thailand how to achieve
    what they have with the coronavirus issues. I would like to applaud them. America has lost 650 people per million.
    Thailand has lost .8 per million. or America has lost 215,506 as of now and Thailand has lost 59. Who is taking care
    of who? America has 4 percent of the world’s population and 22 percent of the world’s confirmed Covid-19 deaths.
    IF YOU ARE WONDERING, See how we are doing compared to the rest of the world, it’s sickening if you are from the U.S.
    The rest of the world is serious! https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/

      @Michael, another reason we are packing it up and moving to Thailand, it’s not a 3rd world country like here, although I’m at the beach in a tiny town in Ca. 🙂

    • RadiantPunk. FYI, it’s the other way round. The analyses some experts have given – the Covid cases are probably 10X more or higher than what are being reported.

    • @Sea Phlox In which case that proves the fact that Covid is not deadlier than the common flu if that were the case. The have been people that have received positive results when they never got tested and there have been deaths that have not been because of Covid, that physicians were pressured to mark as Covid deaths. The cases might be higher like you say, but the confirm cases have numbers in them that are inflated and the Covid deaths are inflated as well

      you are probably right since Rump has been downplaying it all along!

    • Aidan Margarson | October 6, 2020 at 5:53 PM | Reply

      @RadiantPunk Im sorry, people who received positive results when they never got tested? which medical journal did this information come from?

    If you really look at him standing on the balcony last night. It was evident that he was trying very hard to hide that he was experiencing difficulties breathing.

  4. ‘The White House is now a nursing home’! Bravo, what a profound statement. Direct and to the point.

  5. As long as there are no more whistleblowers, as long as all the adults in the room let Trump have his way, as long as they don’t stand up to him and restrict him; thus we must make all those adults personally responsible for the misconducts they permit, which are pernicious, dangerous, deadly, unwanted and indecent. Make them responsible! It just has to stop, NOW! Because he does NOT learn someting. PROVEN.

    The biggest threat to America’s democracy and security is a corrupt and incompetent manchild taking up space in the WH.

    Trump should tell that to the 211,000 who have lost their lives,what a selfish ignorant person.SAD

  8. tRump: I downplayed my corona infection cause I didn’t want to panic me.

  9. The world is watching in horror!

  10. I seem to recall some powerful leaders throughout history that thought they were Godlike..
    Don’t recall it working out to well for the majority of them…

      Let us pray. I’m agnostic and I’m praying for karmic Justice or Yahweh, Jesus, Muhammad but I’m really hoping for Shiva to visit and fix his Bonespurs

  11. If you’re taking any of this seriously then you are a fool. Donald Trump is and always will be just a showman. He couldn’t care less about this country. He’d sell his mother for a dollar. This man was elected President of the United States. It’s a big middle finger from the elites to humanity. They laugh at us. Calamity coming

    • The elites hare him. Here’s the plan they had for us. Look familiar?

    • So true. Proverbs 18:6-7 Fools’ words get them into constant quarrels; they are asking for a beating. The mouths of fools are their ruin; they trap themselves with their lips.

    • If you don’t think MSNBC and CNN is not biased to Donald Trump either your’e blind and deaf or stupid.
      1. Fauci: downplays the important wearing mask
      Media: silence
      Trump: downplayed the coronavirus
      Media: Trump is a liar
      2. Scientist recommends to shutdown the economy
      Media: Trump is the reason why the economy is shutdown.
      3. Trump saves millions of lives from the coronavirus.
      Media: Trump is responsible for over 200,00 deaths when only 6% of them weren’t already sick.

  12. I’m afraid of anyone who tells us to not be afraid of Covid-19

    I don’t want to hear this report anymore, I want to hear how we as Americans can stop this clown. Seriously.

    Test him RIGHT NOW, show the world he does have, or doesn’t have, the virus.

      What

    • yeah idk if you heard the news but trump got covid im suprised you didnt know that as your watching the video

      “What do your results mean?If you test positiveA positive test result shows you may have antibodies from an infection with the virus that causes COVID-19. However, there is a chance a positive result means that you have antibodies from an infection with a virus from the same family of viruses (called coronaviruses), such as the one that causes the common cold.”

  15. Covid? More like panic attack after seeing the last poll numbers after the debate. #VoteBlue

  16. Taking drugs that only mask the symptoms will most likely lead to his being rolled out on a stretcher to return to the hospital. Studies show after appearing better there’s a likely extreme crash 10+ days in.

    Not proud of having to say this but…. Think of the lives that could be saved if the virus runs rampant through his ignorant gop enablers & he is rendered incapacitated… which it now appears is a distinct possibility as a result of blatent ignorance & potus know it all 🙄

    • Barbara Quick | October 6, 2020 at 5:30 PM | Reply

      I have thought that for the last 6 months, then thought he would be a martyr, then he would have better care then anyone else can get. Totally agree about crash after several days on steroids. Time will tell

      Herman Cain passed 28 days after getting the virus. My husband and I both had the virus in April and we felt great, for 5 days and we crashed!! We felt 5x’s worse than the flu!!

    • @ღSwnsasyღ _
      I am still pulling for that Caine -Trump me and my shadow song and dance skit .

    The president even admitted that COVID-19 is Airborne He don’t care🤦🏾‍♀️😷

    • Which is exactly why wearing a mask doesn’t work at all, unless its a respirator or N95, people who think their sick should wear the stylish fake ones or just don’t leave the house

  18. I don’t believe he ever had the virus, it is just a hoax to downplay the entire thing for his campaign.

    • Megane Sergerie | October 6, 2020 at 7:10 PM | Reply

      He has the virus for sure. But he is trying to downplay it again.
      Trump cannot face reality. Facts are his enemies.

  19. OMG Trump will go nuts knowing it’s being compared to a “nursing home!”

  20. *TRUMP USING STIMULUS TO HOLD AMERICA HOSTAGE! PAY ATTENTION AMERICA!*

      Why worry about that? When has Trump ever done anything he says he will??? Like that beautiful healthcare, like those beautiful new bridges and interstate, and railways(infrastructure), with millions of new jobs to build them back in 2016 BEFORE he was elected(gag). Or the wall??? LOL That wall got him loads of bucks-some of it stolen from other agencies, peoples property, destroyed sacred burial grounds, wildlife sanctuaries…but where is that wall??? LOL Its either falling down or being cut open with basic tools! He may be promising this AFTER the election,, but even if he is elected, do you really think he would send those checks out?? We DO pay attention, and do not believe a word he says!

      @safe space post it here as proof. Or is it just yet another conspiracy theory you believe in again?

      I HOPE PEOPLE WAKE UP BEFORE IT IS TO LATE!
