    As per usual he turned it into a MAGA rally. Some practice for Saturday for the BYOV (bring your own virus) rally!!

    • @clg632012
      everybody is well aware that ALL kinds of rallies can spread the virus. Obviously many people feel it is worth the risk anyway.

    • @Adam Abele
      I realize you are just trying to be clever, but causing harm is ALWAYS wrong

    • @Jock Young Yes you would think. However, the “health experts” released a report saying otherwise.

    • @Jock Young You are right. So infected Republicans will not hesitate to take over. I think the situation in the US is now messed up to such a massive degree by the administration. Disinformation and ignorance have completely taken over control on so many levels. All experts are now on the run. This happens when a malignant narcissist has taken control of the plane and all the pilots are gone and now he is playing with all the knobs, buttons and levers. There is no coming back until vaccination is available. But then the anti-vaxxers will take over to prevent the eradication of Covid 19. I predict many millions of cases and a million deaths in the US until the end of the year.

    • when they leave loads of trailer parks will be on lock down…..hahahahaha

  2. Notice how t’rump didn’t mention systemic racism or police brutality once. GW Bush had his “I hear you” moment. t’rump is still sticking to his “I’m not even listening” administration. 🤦‍♂️

    • @poolplayer poolplayer What has he done??? Please give a few examples. This little “photo op” is nothing. Absolutely nothing.

    • @poolplayer poolplayer Sure, sure. Let’s just Photoshop a few fake pictures to change the narrative on a major news story. Sound like truth to you?

    • @Saynoto Socialists pure BS made up by Fox. Trump attacked peaceful demonstrators to hold up a f’n bible, a book he never read and knows nothing about.

      James Ryan , what does that have to do with democrat mayors letting their cities burn ? Answer nothing

      @JJ Strumr prison reforms,police reforms,jobs,made the rest of the world pay their way, hes pro life, anti illegal immigration.

    This is as close to nothing as he could do without literally doing nothing.

  4. CapAnson12345 | June 16, 2020 at 3:36 PM | Reply

    I don’t know that’s actually enforceable.

  5. Even a broken clock is right twice in the day.

  6. Nothing but a photo op, what a joke !!!

    • @jorge flores
      He banned chokeholds unless deadly force is warranted. Many states already have stringer laws. MAYBE that will help a little, but it ignores the real problems.

    • jorge flores | June 16, 2020 at 5:31 PM | Reply

      Jock Young the executive order also creates a database of cops who like using excessive force. This puts pressure on this type of individuals knowing it’s more difficult to get away with it. Really good start for this problem. Trump is going the right way

    • @jorge flores
      It’s something, but it’s not much. Trump want to pretend that it’s just a few bad cops, and no underlying problems. that’s not enough

    • jorge flores | June 16, 2020 at 7:15 PM | Reply

      Jock Young nothing is enough for Democrats that’s just the plain truth.

    • @jorge flores
      yeah caught covid with all those unmasked millionaires.

  7. He’s only doing this to try to get reelected. Don’t think for a moment he actually cares.

    • @The Ropes of Renovation nope.

    • The Ropes of Renovation | June 16, 2020 at 6:57 PM | Reply

      @salmonline Yep

    • @The Ropes of Renovation
      Donald Trump has never cared about anything but himself. That was common knowledge long before 2016

    • The Ropes of Renovation | June 16, 2020 at 8:34 PM | Reply

      @Jock Young Think what you want. We aren’t listening to you. We are watching what he does and has done. At least we aren’t trapping people in a welfare system which is nearly impossible to leave. So bite your tongue.

    • he’ll try and still fail.
      lots of sobbing down in the bunker while the family get packing.

    Trump’s MAGA Mosh Pit in Tulsa will have ‘special attendees’ that will go home with many…

  9. Haha no mask, no social distancing and a lot of touching … *lol

  10. Just watched an old clip of Trump saying Covid19 was under control when only 1000 people had died.
    How can America still give Trump a 40% approval rating? It is disgusting

  11. Chris Trevino | June 16, 2020 at 3:56 PM | Reply

    Yay an executive order that accomplishes nothing cause it doesn’t actually do anything.

    • Saynoto Socialists | June 16, 2020 at 6:26 PM | Reply

      salmonline 🖕🏻 that clear enough for you ?

    • Saynoto Socialists | June 16, 2020 at 6:28 PM | Reply

      John Swo , how stupid are you ? Democrats have been in charge of those police departments for decades , it is absolutely the fault of democrats their police departments are racist

    • Here is a riddle: what political party never does anything except talk, likes drama, movies and pedophilia

    • Saynoto Socialists Liberals. The party of inaction and sexual perversion😂😂🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼🤣

    • @John Galt
      Partisan hatred is pathetic

  12. oh cool, so when ever the officer wants to use a choke hold then.

    • @Steve steve According to some of these thugs that will be every time they are called to do their job. We have to get rid of the cowards and get some REAL police officers…

    • Shawna Weesner | June 16, 2020 at 6:35 PM | Reply

      Kris M There are lots of great Police Officers doing their jobs! U are just ungrateful!

    • @Shawna Weesner
      Yes, there are. And yet the system still needs reform.

    • @Shawna Weesner There are a lot of fake police officers committing acts of terrorism and treason. You are just ignorant!

    • Ironic there’s such an uproar about one of the safest ways to subdue someone there is.

  13. Cops always say their life’s at risk. That’s how they get away with murder every time.This is just another paper tiger.

  14. francis weir | June 16, 2020 at 4:00 PM | Reply

    Cop: My life is at risk
    Also cop: better move in closer, disarm the suspect and place in choke hold.

  15. Would someone please demonstrate a chokehold on trump so he can feel what it is like for eight minutes and 46 seconds.

    • howdareyou41 | June 16, 2020 at 5:40 PM | Reply

      well a chokehold isn’t someone kneeling on your neck, so I’m not even sure this EO would prevent that

  16. SilverSpoon01 | June 16, 2020 at 4:10 PM | Reply

    “Not allot of social distancing or masking going on” You know, I don’t really care if Jim Jordan or Jared Cushner or ANY OF THEM get sick or even if they die! Why should I f***ing care about them when I hate them and they don’t even care to protect themselves or others? Let Darwinism take its course!
    If Republicans want to say masks and social distancing is a partisan issue I say BRING IT ON! Don’t wear a mask, and this now LIFE LONG Democrat will be laughing at you from behind my mask as you get sick and or die.

    If all Trump Republicans go without masks and all Democrats and ‘Real Conservatives’ and independents go with masks that would be the perfect scenario. Because only 1/25 of the country would get the virus and die. Only the stupidest among us would suffer, as it should be.

    Black Lives Matter but Republican lives do not even matter to themselves.


  17. And of course no one is wearing a mask.

    • The Ropes of Renovation | June 16, 2020 at 5:49 PM | Reply

      That’s an odd, hypocritical thing to say. Didn’t the MSM say the protesters were outside and didn’t really need a mask? What’s the difference. Hmmm. NONE. Shut your pie hole

    • The Ropes of Renovation | June 16, 2020 at 5:49 PM | Reply

      @liberty Ann Hope the protesters do too.

    • @The Ropes of Renovation NO, the legitimate media NEVER said no one needed to wear a mask. They just kept reporting that fortunately most people were wearing masks, and expressing concern for the probable increase in infections among the protesters. If you heard something else, you probably need a mental health professional.

    • The Ropes of Renovation | June 16, 2020 at 5:57 PM | Reply

      @ruth depew The very first thing they said was ‘But they are outside where you are less likely to catch it’

    • @The Ropes of Renovation
      The risk IS less outside, but certainly not zero. I saw lots of people wearing masks

  18. Katrina Reiter | June 16, 2020 at 4:13 PM | Reply

    Did you see kushner touch his nose and then pat 2 people on the back and then shake someone’s hand

  19. So they will all just claim they feared for their life. This isn’t real change.

    Everything that comes out of his mouth is a lie to benefit himself, Especially now.
