  1. He’s the most ignorant person to ever be president!!!!!

  2. If you ever want to see how NOT to put out a fire on an aircraft carrier deck, watch the USS Forestal footage. Or the last 4 years.

  3. *”If only one man dies of hunger, that is a tragedy. If millions die, that’s only statistics” — Stalin*

    That’s where we’re at with this pandemic & the trump “administration” …

    • @Kristi Helton – since this went over your head, the relevance of the quote is not about hunger, but about the *indifference to mass pandemic deaths.*

    • It didn’t “go over my head” it is a completely stupid comparison! Just like my response… The reality of what is actually happening has gone over the heads of many of the American people…it’s tragic. But, it’s been obvious that given the best opportunity the American people can’t even get it together enough to fix it. That’s not the president’s fault…it the fault of ALL Americans…both democratic and republican! Arguing over bits when there’s a whole pie on the table!

    • @Richard Barber he’s sending food and correspondence every week here. Our entire town receive food. I honestly don’t know anyone who is not receiving it….I wasn’t trolling, I was just stating fact…are you saying you are not receiving anything?? We all get them here….


    • @Kristi Helton NO! A PRESIDENT IS THE LEADER OF THE NATION. HE GETS THE BEST ADVICE FROM THE BEST SOURCES AND L E A D S the nation to the BEST outcome Possible. That requires commitment to something other than a golf score. Integrity, compassion, teamwork with EXPERTS, A MF PLAN and hard work. 5 things (of 500) responsible adult traits NOBODY EVER SAID IN THE SAME SENTENCE WITH the name of the Loooooser. Ever. Never.

  4. The worst it is that he doesn’t care. Just cares about himself

  5. And throwing out the pandemic handbook didn’t help either.

    “It will disappear, one day it’s like a miracle, it will disappear.” Words from an EPIC FAILURE who SURRENDERED to a pandemic and LOST the popular vote TWICE.

  7. Well, there’s being unable to drive and then there’s just deciding to drive the car into a wall to see what happens…

      @Kristi Helton your president???….what did he do?????

    • Also you can drive drunk and not have a plan on where to go!

    • @Margaret Jackson he’s personally provided food for me and my family… everyone in our town received full food boxes every single week! It is full of the best meats, cheeses, fruits, vegetables and milk and other milk products like sour cream and yogurt….no one has had to sign up for it. It has been being delivered here since March…..we have all been provided with free covid-19 health care and have had cleaners and sanitizer provided. I don’t know where you live but we in our community have been completely provided for.

    • Problem is Trump is driving right over the American people.

    Is the study debunking his Obama left me unprepared talking point? 😳😳

  10. Don’t You see that He’s fighting For a Job that He doesn’t want..🤣🤣🤣🤣

    “USA, we are rated no. 1 ..for NOT being prepared…”

      @Trish Brown Right on, Trish!

    • We were prepared by President Obama, he even tried to brief Trump on what to do before Trump took office. Trump simply ignored the whole thing and lied.

    • @JB 🇦🇺🇦🇺🇦🇺
      Pretty sure a lot of Americans would rather be in oz right now

    • @adrian lee I began to have a very superficial interest in US politics back in 2016. I recall saying to my colleagues at work that I hoped trump wouldn’t become president because frankly, I didn’t like him. They reassured me that he would be unlikely to even win the republican primary. I watched in horror as the 2016 votes were counted. Since then I have watched from a distance. like being in the comfort of a movie theatre as the worst horror shows play before you. The period waiting to be sure Biden had won the election seemed to be months. Now, I am like 80 million American citizens, just hanging out until January 20, seeing Biden inaugurated and hopefully trump being forcibly removed, from the WH, just to give him more shame. I hope that soon the virus no longer dominates the country. Stay safe and best wishes for what should be a healthier and happier year.

  12. “Johns Hopkins is I guess a highly respected place”
    That right there says all you need to know. Mothertrucker doesn’t even know what Johns Hopkins is. smdh

  13. What’s worse than failure, is blatant indifference.

  14. Watch what Trump said. He didn’t know who John Hopkins is.
