  1. That noise from his base, didn’t necessarily sound like their normal cries of support. It almost sounded like dissent…

    • i think they’re losing heart

    • MANY AT RALLY DID SAY THEY WERE NOT HAPPY WITH DUMP NON-POLICY AGENDA…AS ALWAYS IT WAS ABOUT JUDICIAL SYSTEM…THE CV-19..TESTING….HE DID SAY VET’S WERE RECEIVING BETTER MEDICAL? IF THAT IS TRUE, IT IS AGOOD THING…..ALL ELSE GARBAGE….ONLY A LITTLE OVER ONE HOUR….PEOPLE TRAVELED FROM NEW ENGLAND STATES TO CALIFORNIA FOR RALLY..A DISAPPOINTMENT….NOW PAY FOR THE RALLY DUMP AND ALL WILL BE HAPPY….

    • Most of them were probably paid to be there

      Grievance in the sense of shared VICTIM-HOOD! A cult like following, who apparently believe that he is the “chosen one” which in turn makes them somehow immune from this virus. LOL!

      @may wilson It is not true that Trump helped the vets. Obama put that in motion and Trump claimed it in “error.”

  2. Trump just admitted on live TV his negligence contributing to the deaths of 120,000 + Americans. He is the stupidest elected leader ever to hold office.

    Even if he was joking, this was sick….in more ways than one.

      @The Ropes of Renovation I understood what he meant.

      I’m guessing you support the death penalty. I hope your not one of those GODLESS EVANGELICALS.

      *Brazil’s Parliament Breaks Into Hospital Claiming 5k Coronavirus Patients, 200 Dead and It’s Empty!*

    • @9000ck “pregnancies aren’t a deadly infectious disease” This is completely FALSE. The world is overpopulated and needs to be cullled. Your opinion is irrellevant. The herd MUST be thined. Abortions are not enough.

    • Connan all the way! I heard this and thought why would he say that??? Well he lies and claims he defeated the covid19 of course he would want the testing to stop,, his presidency comes first built upon champion of covid-19…

  5. Trump tricks his kool-aid guzzling cult into believing that he’s going to be tough on China, he then turns around and drops to his knees at President Xi’s feet, sobbing, blubbering, groveling, and pleading with him to do whatever he can to help him get reelected. 😂

    This is the same so called tuff guy that used brute force on peaceful protesting American citizens just so he could have a 5 minute photo op. Utterly disgusting

      @Ralph and Theo Are you referring to the rioters or the peaceful protesters? Because they’re two drastically different groups.

      These are the same people who would jump out of a plane with no parachute if he told them it was a covid cure

  6. It is obvious that Donald has never been tested for the syphilis he has.

      @Peter Bills The best thing about Biden is he is not Trump. The next most important thing is that he knows first hand about suffering loss and he CARES!

    • There are many causes of madness, syphilis is one of them.

    • @Peter Bills Sweetie,Hillary ran in 2016,this is 2020…speaking of dementia,have you seen a doctor?

    • Your name says it all. Go back in mommys’ basement and take another toke before your shift at Burger Kng(if you even work).

    • @dawn J Except that the “collective” intelligence of Americans is no greater or lesser than any other country.

  9. Coming up: Trump orders fire crews to stay in their stations because whenever they go out, they tend to find fires, and homes and businesses are seriously damaged. Clearly, blame must be fairly apportioned to the fire crews – if you don’t have fire crews, fires will dramatically decrease. Makes perfect, bigly sense.

    Spanky is just mad he couldn’t even fill a small arena for his first pity party in months. So he’s going to take it out on everyone.

      I’m honestly glad enough people had the common sense to not go to that Petri dish. I think most stayed away when they realized they’d have to sign away their right to not sue when they get sick in the Petri dish. 🤷💵

      @MzARavenLunatic These are Spanky humpers we’re talking about….Common sense isn’t even a slight part of their DNA.
      It most likely came down to 2 things. 1: They see the rising spikes and are starting to at least acknowledge the virus Spanky would have them believe is gone. These creatures only really acknowledge things when they directly affect them, as they are starting to now.
      2: They need money to travel and eat and stay for the rally…They most likely simply don’t have the disposable income available right now
      Signing away their right to sue most likely never even entered the equation. That would mean they would have actually read and understood the fine print and we all know that simply isn’t the case with these folks.

  11. Trump speaks, his followers and supporters listen and BELIEVE.

      Jibbzer Nation I don’t think that you are a peon. I think that you have been lied to by right wing media outlets like Fox.

    • Why don’t you ask your slave master’s propaganda media to show the full video of what the President said? Then that way you don’t look so stupid making false claims off false information.

    • Jibbzer Nation | June 21, 2020 at 10:49 PM | Reply

      ​@Toronto Citizen I saw the rally live this is not something I heard from Fox news. I am starting to think your just trolling me anyways.. Then again after reading everyone here claiming Trump meant it seriously I can only wonder who is being lied to by media…

    Cadet Bonespurs has always been against testing of all types. That is why he has fought tooth and nail to keep his school records hidden from public view. Testing is very bad in Trump world….just like the truth is his enemy….testing is his enemy.

      Well said. I never thought that we’d see a day when the Trained Dedicated Public Servants; and the Expert Doctors at CDC on the front lines become ENEMY #1
      Absolutely Ridiculous!

    • Every president conceals his college records. Barack Obama concealed his attendance at Occidental and nobody there even knew him or what he was studying there.

    Trump shows yet again he dont care who dies of Covid cause he is ok, and he thinks the American People are mugs who will give him another 4 years in the White house.

    Trump has his new reality show, it’s called The Biggest Loser!

  15. We need to test as many people as possible so we know who has the virus.
    Trump’s idiotic statement proves he’s unfit to run the country.

    No matter what test you gave to Trump, he’d fail it.

    No testing, no cases.
    No doctor, no sickness.
    -WH daily testing ! Why?
    Trump: I love stupid people.

  18. Bone spurs whines about testing while he gets tested every day. Can’t fix stupid.

    Trump logic: Stop counting and there will be no deaths.

  20. Trump show that there is no limit to his stupidity.

    • @Sou Say Upset? I think it is very funny seeing so many stupid people falling for the propaganda media tactics again. I think it is funny when people are so lazy they do not take the time to go watch the full video, or do any research. But I do think it is sad that the left only has hatred, racism, and terrorism going for it.

    • I heard this and thought why would he say that??? Well he lies and claims he defeated the covid19 of course he would want the testing to stop,, his presidency comes first built upon champion of covid-19…

    • Conman all the way

    • Yahto TV your mad

    • @MVP #1 Just like I keep saying. Go watch the full video. Go see everything Trump about the subject. Go see Trump trolling and people having a laugh. Better yet why are people too stupid to get what Trump is saying? So the left keep talking about the US numbers vs. other countries. But when Trump talks about testing and the numbers the propaganda media goes to spinning and the slaves fall for it.
