  1. I know Trump wants to make America whiter, but telling people to inject themselves with bleach is beyond the pale.

    • ILL Skillz Yeah, no. Don’t need a mask. This whole virus has been blown out of proportion. Someone dies of a gunshot, has the anti- bodies he’s written up as Covid 19. Why? More money from the feds. Inflates the deadcount!

      Jim Skarw I actually felt your stupidity through your post. Never thought that was possible. 🤣🤣🤣🤣

    • CaptainBlackass | May 4, 2020 at 1:11 PM | Reply

      @Jim Skarw no he didnt say drink bleach. but seriously is this really a time for spoofing a reporter? PEOPLE ARE DYING in very high numbers and the POTUS has time to troll reporters?

    • CaptainBlackass I’m not sure how many are dying… from covid -19. I keep hearing how some people dying of other causes, that also have the virus and are listing them as death by virus, without determining the actual cause of death. It’s not to belittle anyone, just have to wonder. If greater federal funds can be had, due to the virus, well, you get the idea.

    He says he was joking or was being sarcastic, despite spreading misinformation during an official briefing… then calls reporters fake news.
    The irony is completely lost to him.

    • @Bovine One
      Republicans will because trump said it will cure them.
      I hope when all is said and done that you Americans have a Democratic government and standardize and pour money into public education all across your nation.

    • CE Baker – Oh sure, Republicans are gonna start injecting disinfectant. #eyeroll

    • @Bovine One one could hope just curious if he came out and was like yea I meant to inject yourself with disinfectant i was serious what would you think. Where he missed the mark was he didn’t understand how dumb amerika is and that information could be dangerous

    • Ash K – I’m sure he wasn’t serious. He’s a moron, but nobody is that stupid. Even him.

      @Bovine One A couple drank pool cleaner because of the suggestion of hydroxychloroquine. Yes, people are that dumb, as I’ve leaned in the past couple of weeks.

    I really wish Dr.Birx just stood up and said this is complete BS and walked out..

    Back in the real world though…

    • You can see Dr Birx dying on the inside having to sit and listen to the Moronvirus

    • I feel bad for Birx. Not only is she forced to work with a man who prides himself on his sexual assault prowess, but she is watching 40 years of building a strong reputation as a medical researcher go down the drain by associating herself with an increasingly unhinged autocratic madman. And, by the look on her face yesterday, she is is aware of this fact.

      Rakesh Sukumar ,Sorry no pity for me because she sold her soul! She could’ve stayed in the private sector and done more good then she did by being with Trump

      Brian C ,Sorry she did it to her self

    • Rakesh Sukumar | April 25, 2020 at 2:34 AM | Reply

      @Kathy Franklund absolutely true. But for her education to insulted like this in front of the world, she should have some fight in her against these atrocities

    Infact calling him a clown would be disrespectful to the clown community.

    This nonsense Reminds me when he said that he wanted to try and stop hurricanes by dropping nukes on them.

      @Adriana Flowers We already have one, and he’s a sociopath as well.

      Kat loves dogs No he’s not. I bet you wanted crooked Hilary to win.

    • Kesnel Odenier | May 5, 2020 at 4:00 AM | Reply

      Lol please do we are in trouble..

    • @Adriana Flowers what is your opinion on the disinfectant situation in this video

    • Adriana Flowers | May 6, 2020 at 9:50 PM | Reply

      Ryan W He never said that people should inject themselves with Lysol, that is plain ridiculous and a flat out lie from the media that many people chose to believe. If you watch the video, you will see that trump simply asked health professionals if it was possible to inject some sort of disinfectant as a way of treatment and the health professional said that it is possible. In fact, that sort of treatment already exists if you look into it.

  9. He has had too much ultraviolet hit his brain after so much tanning. He is a joke!

  10. God was being sarcastic when Trump emerged from the womb.

    • @Grace Taylor The Earth would be empty then

    • @Benjamin Kelley Wow, that must have really hurt your brain, coming up with that gem. I’m surprised you even spelled the word “bible” correctly. Trumpsters love to pretend they’re christian, but just like their tribal leader, haven’t a clue about any of the tenets of their faith. Go play somewhere else, Little Cletus.

    • I laughed so much at this comment that there is tears running down my cheeks LOL

    • hes rich has a beautifull wife and is way more sucesfull then you

    • @push pull He pretends to be rich; has a wife with silicone implants; and he’s conned you.

    Even if he was being sarcastic. How in the world is he making a joke out of this!? People are dying ffs !

    • Tbone Goldy | May 7, 2020 at 11:47 AM | Reply

      Your right, we should just ban all jokes and anything that makes people happy, because you obviously don’t understand humor

    • Tbone Goldy | May 7, 2020 at 11:48 AM | Reply

      @Kevin Prima Joe is literally losing his mind. Wouldn’t be surprised if he is not mentally fit to be president

    • James Gusman | May 7, 2020 at 1:38 PM | Reply

      @Tbone Goldy there are certain things we can joke about,other are taken seriously. In this case ,him being head of state the most powerful person in the world, leave very small space on making a mistake such as the one he made. Pres has to get his act together goes with the territory.

    • Kevin Prima | May 7, 2020 at 3:34 PM | Reply

      @Tbone Goldy — Joe is doing wonderful and keeps increasing his lead in all the battleground polls — meanwhile ALL the late night comics are shredding Lysol Donnie and he’s tossing Twit Tantrums because he’s so hurt by their jokes😂😂

    • The president shouldn’t joke around. People WILL ALWAYS take it seriously and it’s incredibly unprofessional to use sarcasm as a president

  12. plzz do not cut his daily Briefing..we laugh daily on his Briefings and memes were awesome on social media.. 🤣😂🤣😂🤣😂🤣😀 laugh in depressive Quarantäne

  13. Smart people know not to inject disinfectant

  14. Yes trump Yes we need to make sarcasm in this time……

      No I don’t; if you don’t beleive me let me show you watch the death toll rise, “said corona”

    i thought it was impossible for someone to be this stupid, I guess not

    Let’s inject the disinfectant into him first and see how that goes…

    • Jaime Martinez | May 7, 2020 at 2:20 AM | Reply

      Just to be safe, let’s also shove a uv light bulb up his rectum

    • @Jaime Martinez 😆👍

    • James Gusman | May 7, 2020 at 1:41 PM | Reply

      Best yet he should have injected drink a little disinfecting solution, then joke about it. Let see who would take it as a laughing matters

      I will hold him down

      @Battlefield Addict your “leader” just told an entire country to inject disinfectant, which is deadly and fatal, in a global pandemic. Someone, as a joke, said he should do it first and now you’re somehow accusing the left of being sick.

  17. I just LOVE every time Brian says “In the real world” 🙂

  18. How can you tell president Rump is lieing??
    His lips are moving!!😂😂😂

    He gets it from his own brain front blame it on others unless all his aides are stupid.

    He is like the weird kid that does things to the animals in the neighborhood. The kid that you are scared to invite to your birthday party.
