    – Lack of emotional depth
    – Lack of foresight
    – Lack of impulse control

      So forming a test force in January, which CNN said lacked diversity. Or stopping people from coming here from the infected areas in China, which the Democrats, said was racist and xenophobic, lacked foresight? And what were the Democrats, doing at that time? Impeaching the President.

    • Majority of the world is run by sociopaths

  2. When you have a president and a vice president who have done everything in their first 4 years to combat science and pure scientific facts, and now suddenly want to believe in it, that’s when innocent lives are lost

  3. Trump wants to be king, so maybe he should have a corona on his head.

    It’s sad to say but this “potential” disaster may be necessary to wake his followers from the dream. Though for the rest of us it’s been a nightmare.

      Are you kidding me?! Trump cannot win considering his completely idiotic response to this virus. He’s entirely clueless! You’re still going to try to talk him up when he’s doing everything possible in the wrong way for a serious public health crisis?! You’re just as delusional as Trump is. OMFG! 🤦🏻‍♂️

      @keir farnum nah you are just a special kind of stupid. Trump will win in 2020 and you will cry like a biatch. Mere fact that you are blaming trump for the cornovirus shows how stupid you are. Imagine if this country was on Medicare for all and how this would have been dealt. Trump 2020 and Ivanka 2024

    REMEMBER When Trump was in India he said openly that he hadn’t heard anything about Corona for 2 days, the 2 days before the market started falling.

    • If not for the stock market he still would be calling it fake news. I have been watching it since January and he could have gotten and copied the Chinese test they were using throughout February and probably have 10000 kit available by March 1st, the purpose of the executive branch is to cut through red tape in an emergency and do something like that. He may be able to save a little face if the Chinese start vaccinating people this summer with something they whipped up (that might not be feasible but I would not put it past them), that should be good enough to get and copy that vaccine and send CDC people over to monitor the results from their vaccine and deploy their vaccine with the flu shots in the fall if there are no red flags.

  8. Trump the HunchBacker President of the USA.

    • Kenneth Morris | March 6, 2020 at 6:31 AM | Reply

      And then he drove multiple casinos which are virtually money machines into the ground and in the process stiff numerous suppliers and contractors.

    • @Kenneth Morris That’s the point. Like the casinos Trump will drive America into the ground and like his casinos he’ll tell everybody that he came out of the deal as a winner. Shame about the casinos and shame about America.

      But isn’t Kevin right? It was 8 years of corporate Dems that led inexorably to Trump. That plus the preceding 30 years of either GOP or DNC corruption. The USA, alone in the developed world has no decent healthcare system for all its people. It is ranked only 26th in world democracy rankings and 46th in life expectancy. It has the worst gun violence in the developed world and the highest prison population. It has waged endless, losing wars on the 3rd world for 70 years. In just the last 20 years the USA has squandered $6 trillion of taxpayers money on failed middle east wars.
      Americans watch as their children are mown down in constant mass shootings and in the 6 years since Jan 1 2014, Americans have shot to death over 80,000 fellow Americans. That’s not “freedom”, that’s a mental illness.
      The US continues to decline, worsening inequality, division and corruption from a corrupt two party oligarchy are all it has to offer and in 8, 12 years the next Trump will appear and gut you permanently.

      @Jim Battersbee Do you even remember the 2008 meltdown? Do you read? Are you capable of thinking in more than slogans and Fox news bites? Man, Rupert Murdoch owns you. Sad.

    • Jim Battersbee | March 6, 2020 at 9:02 PM | Reply

      Great reply, a perfect example of what you were trying to convey, little clichés, MSM bites, all questions, zero answers.
      I don’t listen to Fox, it’s appalling American crap.
      The US under its two party oligarchy has financial meltdowns all the time, you’re heading for another one now.
      Between 2006 and 2014 some nine million Americans lost their homes.
      Wall St criminals were bailed out and no-one went to jail.
      Lower-income families aren’t just not doing better; they are actually doing worse: The average household income of the bottom 20 percent of Americans fell $571 between 2006 and 2016, (US Census Bureau 2016)

    The people following Trump are *FINALLY* waking up to the reality that the Emperor has no clothes on.

  12. Stop talking about ‘His own set of facts’ …. they’re not facts, they’re delusions

    I’m confused why anyone is confused.
    Trump is human filth.
    He cares about nothing but himself.

    • ​@Crystal Giddens It’s Trump’s fault when he lies about the numbers. It’s his fault when he is not preparing the public about the virus. It’s his fault for not act to prepare to contain the virus. First order of leadership, everything is your fault when you’re not acting in the interest of the American people as the president of the United States. So Trump takes credit when the market goes up, and blames others and avoid the reality when the market plunges? The market goes up on liquidity and certainty and vice versa, not Trump. When the virus is properly contained and people are educated, the stock market will eventually back go up. The 401k won’t matter when dead.

    • What bothers me more than Trump is how so many people can stay loyal to him no matter what he does or what absurd and obvious lies spew from his mouth.

    “He uses his own set of facts” – Why do imbecilic reporters make statements like this? He’s not using facts, he’s literally spouting lies, y’know, the opposite of facts!

    • SO RIGHT!!!
      I get so sick of the media using the phrases his facts,her facts or your facts.
      There is only one set of facts ,everything else is a lie!!!!

    • Absolutely yes. Example:

      My facts are that potatos told me I can fly if I eat my hat.

      Your facts are that potatos don’t talk, and I can’t fly, and will die if I eat my hat.

      Which one is a set of facts, and which one is lies?

      Did ANYone with microphone and platform in this country go to elementary school? Is this an education issue too? It’s so EXHAUSTING

    “Trump often uses his own facts” : facts are true. Just call it like it is, Trump often lies.

  17. Trump is a dangerous menace a threat to global security and the health and well being of the whole planet.

  18. The only kind of person that would be confused about this virus, is a half witted,peabrain, that can’t see beyond them selves!!!

    • Jeremy Backup | March 6, 2020 at 9:07 AM | Reply

      Trump did a quick interview on Hannity last night, and Hannity had to remind Trump 3 times the name of the virus, Trump kept struggling to say the name of the virus. That doesn’t fill me with confidence. Trump is by far the most corrupt and incompetent POTUS in American History.

    Stock market loses billions, Trump starts to take the virus seriously, still thinks he has it under control. CO-VID19 doesn’t care about the stock market or about politics.

      Last Friday at one of his Nuremburg-style rallies in North Charleston, SC, he actually said that Coronavirus is “The Dems new hoax.” Unbelievable!

    • John Patrick | March 7, 2020 at 4:14 PM | Reply

      @Lyle Beaugard Not the virus itself, but the fear mongering surrounding it.
      There is a distinction.

    • Y’all know that “the flu” has killed thousands of Americans since September, right?

    • The only thing rich people don’t want to end up with is poverty.

    Trump’s greatest gift to America is his complete destruction of the GOP.
