  1. Daily Reminder: Trump called Corona Virus a Democrat Hoax that will “magically” disappear.
    I pay more federal taxes than Donald Trump

    • On your 2nd issue: Yeah – but you are not clever (according to trump). Meaning : you are too honest.

    • Trump overpaid in his federal taxe. That happens if you know a thing about Businees and taxes. He paid in 4.1 million . so the 2 years he did not have to pay as much. Vet all the facts instead of just a line or two, Plandemic was a HOAX it will go away. Dems are going down many are in jail now

    • @marlene meadTrump is the only Presidential candidate since Nixon who has NOT shown his taxes to the American people. The rest of your rant is straight Projection.

    • @marlene mead Pandemic is not a HOAX and you are a moron(sorry im giving morons a bad name)
      know let see you name 8 dems this term that went to jail i can name 8 reps that did go to jail
      and the Pandemic will at some point but you are the type of people that go by IM ALL RIGHT SCREW YOU and so long as it dos not bother me im content to let 112,000 plus people die

    • @marlene mead and stop making this into political point it is to god dam series i have had friends die from covid-19
      this just make you look like a pathetic in insensitive B*****D

  2. Most people who go through an illness and say they fully understand it, usually come back with empathetic and compassionate view life and want to help people get through this pandemic with a stimulus payment which would benefit the economy and help people pay for bills, buy food, etc, etc.

    Trump can’t lead when he’s “well,” let alone the steroid mood swings. I can’t stand the man, but without MCConnell I think he would sign/ support a relief bill, especially if he understood it would help him politically but he has crazy hateful McConnell in his ear.

    • Jennifer McGoldrick | October 7, 2020 at 12:46 AM | Reply

      @JOSEPH BALLY it’s not his taxes that will foot the bill afterall 😂 and he’s the type of person who thinks milk might cost $15 so he’d actually support relief.

    • Jennifer McGoldrick I think once the meds wore off earlier he realized how stupid and idiotic it was for him politically to send out that “end of stimulus negotiations” Tweet

    • Constituent A | October 7, 2020 at 1:06 AM | Reply

      I don’t even think McConnell had anything to do with it. It’s just trump deliberately being “anti” anything Biden is “for”. He thinks that alone works in his favor. Someone clearly had to tell him how stupid his earlier proclamation was.

    • He’s put out a number of threatening/punishing statements lately (ie telling his attendees at a rally, “If I lose, I’ll never forgive you” or “If I lose, You’ll never see me again” etc). Perhaps this is more of the same, a kind of withholding as punishment (for the election loss that he is anticipating). His behavior is very reminiscent of how abusers act out when their victims attempt to leave. It’s like America is trying to divorce him and he’s cutting off financial resources and screaming “No one else is going to want you anyway! You’ll never do better than me! If you leave you’ll never see me or the kids again!”

      It’s incredible how difficult it is to tell if his erratic mania is a product of illness/treatment, campaign desperation, and/or narcissistic injury.


  4. What about the rest of americans

  5. Trump is receiving world class publicly funded health care while his lawyers are in court trying to take our health care away.

    • He is not trying to take away your healthcare. The part you are concerned about is coverage of preexisting conditions and he has said repeatedly he does not want to stop that. What he wants to stop all the other bad aspects of Obamacare like it granting an insurer a monopoly in a state.

    • don’t take Trump out of the woods. Let him stay there . He needs to be in the woods .with the. Volgers .

    • E Theory Lies lies lies lies lies just like the typical Chinese Democrat you are

    • @Boo Garcia Yoda?

    • Excuse me Sir/Madam
      Are you saved?
      If you died tonight are you going to heaven? Jesus loves you.

  6. Warning children: This is your brain on steroids.

      Bahahahaha cheerioooo

    • Mike Galbraith | October 7, 2020 at 2:35 AM | Reply

      Don’t blame it on the steroids, Trump’s brain rot is a preexisting condition.

    • Amy Elizabeth | October 7, 2020 at 2:44 AM | Reply

      @Mike Galbraith Hahaha Ikr. When it was announced that the steroids & meds could potentially cause mind altering affects & mood swings, I thought, “Like we would notice a difference?” If there would be a marked improvement in Trump’s clarity, rationale, decency & empathy, then we’d know. Not holding my breath… 😒

  7. Looks the steroid psychosis is kicking in with irrational actions!!!

  8. Trump will defeat himself, biden doesnt have to do anything…

  9. Anyone want to claim he isn’t insane? What? No one? Alright, so, we all admit, he’s insane. And the GOP supports him. An insane man.

  10. Talking both sides out of his mouth. He’s still holding it hostage. He’s inconsistent –amd high on steroids. Watch for temperamental changes.

  11. Trump: “Yes I lied to the American people about the seriousness of the virus, but as your leader, I had to do it. I stood out front–I led. I knew that there was a risk, I know that more than 200k Americans have died from the virus, but that’s okay. Because now I’m better, and maybe I’m insane, I don’t know.”

      Perfect summary, he might as well say it

    • personal foul… using the global pandemic as a political move……….. your guilty of that

    • Andrew McFadden | October 7, 2020 at 1:40 AM | Reply

      @Roderick12 what is this, football?

    • Jackyc1234 Clark | October 7, 2020 at 3:03 AM | Reply

      I’m probably the most insane . Some people say I’m the insanest ever . Huge huge insanity . Really terrific stuff , these steroids . Way better than my usual adderall/ perc. compound . Really , I’d say , wait , what was I say – ingg . What time is the shooww on?

    • only 6% die fromn virus which would be about 10,00- not his fault Didnt lie anymore then the DEMACRATS> dems going down some in jail now

  12. Rosemary Walters | October 7, 2020 at 12:58 AM | Reply

    Should Trump be allowed to influence government decision-making when he’s on steroids?

  13. He wanted to tank the stocks, buy low, then make money. Easy.

  14. SUPERAFRASIABI89 | October 7, 2020 at 1:08 AM | Reply

    “I don’t think science knows”-person who claimed there were airports in 1776.

  15. Mr. Trump has always been a crazy man. Now he is a crazy man on steroids (literally).

  16. The stock market took a dump and he freaked. Reminder he only wants to hurt us average Joe’s. He wants to take care of his corporate buddies. I am on disability and I pay more federal taxes than Trump. Trump is the devil.

  17. Trump is on drugs and should hand power on over to Biden. He is going to lose anyway. Biden/Harris 2020 Ohio

  18. All he cares about is money and the stock market, not human lives.

    • Lies will come back at you ITS THE DEMACRATS THAT DONT CARE ABOUT THE PEOPLE OR COUNTRY> Lies will get you.

    Trump’s brain is clearly pancake batter at this point.

    His presidency is flailing like a halibut on a dock.

    Trump is not only the enemy within, he’s also his own worst enemy.
