  1. Donald Trump is killing this country

      @Dave Schultz Trump is not out of woods with the Corona virus. He is in denial.

      Kerrie T As long as the decease are DNC leftist ANTIFA, no one cares 👍
      Not law enforcement, not military, not suburbanites, not blacks, not Latinos,
      not the 1%. Only folks that care are dementia Biden supporters.
      Oh BTW, the DNC has refused to pay for old Joe’s leased Campaign Jet 🛩
      They feel it’s throwing good money after bad 👍 Love that Tom Perez

      Democrat Mayors encouraged hundreds of thousands of protesters for 5 months allowing the twenty-year-olds to bring home this disease to their 50 year old parents and 70 year old grandparents. Not a single Republican held Mayor position allowed that death to spread.

    • Grainne Harte | October 5, 2020 at 9:35 PM | Reply

      Justin Wright Hopefully Trump will join the list soon Then humanity can feel safe again

    • @Barrys-Take-Two There are many Republican mayor’s because when different cultures mix, they stop fighting each over petty issues and they realize there are crazy people of all races.
      When you live in rural areas, it’s like living in solitary confinement and you only know what people around you tell you because that’s how you’re raised but when you grow up around many people and cultures, you are able to see who the real enemy is: corrupt politicians who get so greedy that they start to harm themselves. They destroy the very society that allowed them to gain power and wealth in the first place.

  2. Mocking 210K dead Americans with this obvious PR Stunt; Trump, cult members and Fox state tv will say he is stronger than any virus and is eager to get back to work to protect and serve the people.😠😠 😁😂

    • EXACTLY!! HE’s The Biggest HOAX Of All.

      @Dave Schultz Your personal attacks, rather than trying to refute their arguments, shows a) you probably think that they are correct, and, b)says a lot more about you than you think.

    • Andorra Burton | October 5, 2020 at 7:43 PM | Reply

      I agree with you the way showed off himself is disturbing and demonizing the 210, 000 people died in this horrible disease

    • Dittzx I’m eager to know, when he will actually begin to serve the people? Up to now, he’s only served himself and some of his family (Ivanka) and a few of his crooked friends. I don’t feel sorry for him. He’s got to go!

    • Andorra Burton | October 5, 2020 at 9:51 PM | Reply

      Jean Harper well “ Never” per his niece grow up selfish and never care for his on brother when he got sick and never went to hospital to say goodbye his dying brother. As you pointed out get himself and cronies make rich as much as hold this position. I think we are leaving per third word and countries lead by dictatorships sad to see but we accepted it as a society his stupidity because he used British divided rule laws to run this country and we accepted it

    Covid is not 1/10 as dangerous as Trump.

  4. He just landed on the WH south lawn, walked up the stairs, and stood there. He TOOK OFF HIS MASK and walked into the WH. Is he sick or not?

    • Angel M. Bouchard I was going to comment this exact thing! So now I will just like your comment instead👍🏻

    • Oh, he is most definitely SICK, but whether he has Covid-19 is still in doubt. 🤨

    • @Lionel Smith I agree. I also noticed right away that he was having a hard time breathing. He is in terrible health, but I have never noticed that before.

    • Judging from the way he was breathing through his mouth, yes he is sick. Stop with the stupid conspiracy nonsense. The only lie is that Trump had mild symptoms when he was actually in trouble. He could still get worse.

    • Veronica Manley | October 5, 2020 at 10:50 PM | Reply

      Not sick, just a devious evil beast. He would take down America for the sake of his ego. He unfit to hold such a position, should be taken out of the WH in a straitjacket, and spit guard, and he and his family taken to court for all their corruption and criminal activities before and since he took office, locked in prison for many years never to return to society.

  5. The only thing Trump has ever been good at is lying, cheating, scams, and committing fraud. Trump’s failure as a president was inevitable.

    Trump was never equipped to do his job. He doesn’t have the necessary tools or the wherewithal to do his job. Trump is grossly incapacitated intellectually, mentally, emotionally, temperamentally, socially, and psychologically. He couldn’t properly do his job as president even if he wanted to. (Which he doesn’t) 

    Trump was always going to fail, and he was always going to blame his failures on someone or something. Lying, cheating, scams, fraud and bullying are his only tools for survival. They are the tools of his trade, which is being an agent of chaos, misery, and destruction. It’s all he knows. He is a sad and pathetic excuse for a human being. In fact, he is less of a human being, and more of a collection of every human flaw known to mankind, all rolled into one man.

    • @Il Was They just released the emails…if you can read, you can see them for yourself. Careful, your MSNBC degree is showing.

    • Your comment is FLAWLESS !!!👍💙

    • ​@Steve F, I can NOT believed one word come from WH. What make you think I will believe trumper’s word? You can spin and find pathetic poor excuse for dump. Remember this, you can put lipstick on a pig, but it’s still a pig. BYE DON 2020.

      All my life, he’s been referred to as Don the con.

      Well said David! Biden/Harris 2020! Country over party. I’m exhausted from feeling so divided from people I may otherwise like of they weren’t tRumpers. I want is to come back together. Divider n chief!

  6. Easy for him say when he got 10 doctors 20 nurses stand by just for him . Don’t be afraid of COVID he is a joke to the bones.

    • It’s great to see tax returns of $750 can get you this type of assistance . Everyone should be happy about that.

      Mr. Green Professor Green, google “DNC refuses to pay for Biden campaign Jet ✈️ “
      Or “Biden takes millions from Russia” Or ⚠️”Obama not supportive of Biden” 👈my favorite

    • Justin Wright | October 5, 2020 at 8:33 PM | Reply

      Angel M. Bouchard Speaking of “Bills” the DNC has refused to pay for Biden’s leased campaign plane 🛩. Something to do with throwing good money after bad. It’s over, Tom Perez is focusing on 2024 and AOC 👍

    • @Justin Wright Pfff, response to me in a 200 page format so it would be more fruitful in ignoring you. 🤣🤣🤣 Troll

      Mortality rate is 99.5%.
      What better odds are there Vin?
      If you drive – you have better odds of dying in your car.

  7. This so dam fake. After pumping him with unapproved medicine that could have side effects, they are releasing him. What a croĉk, like one person said all the military answer to Potus so everything is a script. Fake Fake Fake

    • It does not matter what party you are in, Trump is in a party of his own he is not Republican or Democrat, he just wants American to be one of his businesses, Trump Inc. He is just a very Evil creature and so are all his Cronies in the WH. Country before Parties. Trump, there is a Karma so even if you are not faking it, I hope Covid19 will have a very big surprise for you soon cause OCT is not over yet.

    • They pumped him with HGH that why he said “ I feel better than I did 20 years ago”.

    • @Tassie he’s on a steroid high

  8. Larry Archibald | October 5, 2020 at 7:16 PM | Reply

    Trump sees everyone around him with covid-19 as just a side effect to his! There are no real people around him in his reality.

  9. How does Trump DISTRACT America from his TAX EVASION? PRETEND to be sick with COVID-19 .. then come out and say, “It was NOTHING. It’s JUST LIKE THE FLU.” The joke is on the AMERICANS.

    • Vanessa Morrison | October 5, 2020 at 9:08 PM | Reply

      And he owns stock in the drug they gave .

    • The same way he had a tummy ache on the date of his spelling test, a cold when it was time to test in math. And according to Trump’s Sister, PAID to have someone take his SATs. A born Cheat, Liar and Grifter. VOTE Trump/McConnell OUT Of OFFICE On November 03rd. Include the 22 McConnell Controlled GOP Senators Up For Re-election.

    • @Michael Phillips “… Agree With Trump media is Fake…” No. I Agree TRUMP Is Fake.

    • @Live Life Nah, I don’t think Trump is lying about having covid. I think he is lying about doing fine. I can see it in his face and body language. He still feels like crap. Also, your vocal chords feel all gunky and it can make your voice sound different. I watched one of the videos he put out from the hospital and I could hear it in his voice. He’s just pretending to feel better than he actually feels to try to look tough, I think.

      I don’t wish bad stuff on him, but I honestly have no sympathy for him feeling like crap. He was being irresponsible (and he was encouraging others to be irresponsible too). He made his own bed, so now he can sleep in it. The reason I got it was because my roommate was listening to all that stupid stuff and started saying things like, “Masks are just a control thing!” and calling the virus a hoax and stuff. Then he went out and hung out with a bunch of people and immediately caught it and unknowingly brought it back home. So, I have very little sympathy for Trump. He not only brought it on himself, but he has indirectly caused countless other people to get infected (and sometimes die) as well.

      William H Music 2020 you lost your mind to say such thing, you-do not have feeling for 210 0000 dead people because of his misinformation and mishandling Covd-19

  10. Yeah, those poor thousands of cv19 sufferers didn’t get to go to Walter Reed and get every single treatment possible 😢

    Herman Cain wasn’t afraid of Covid-19 and he is DEAD.

    • Beverly Wilson | October 5, 2020 at 10:21 PM | Reply

      @Roger Pile I’m not a fan of 45 but I don’t wish him death! That’s just too much

    • THAT PART !!!! 💯💯💯💅😒💅😒.

    • Patricia Manzi he wasn’t afraid of death either, and he was NEVER Fearful , what you probably don’t know is that he had underlying conditions, his risk factor was higher in the event he would contract, he obviously chose to live, life, he had already battled Stage 4 Colin Cancer, he lived life. You left wing radicals will never get out of the basement, but your choice, sad, but your choice

    • Roger Pile wow, sad, sad, sad but not surprising, that comment someday I would think you’ll have to answer to.

    Nearly 190,000 seniors who are no longer ‘afraid’ of Covid … cuz they’re dead.

  13. Joe Biden Slaughter him so bad in the first debate that he gave himself a coronavirus and put himself in the hospital so he won’t have to debate Joe Biden again that is what the truth is

  14. Trump is an angry old one man freak show. I’m voting for Biden / Harris

  15. Folks remember he’s not a doctor he’s not even a real businessman he’s a con man don’t be kind wear your mask

  16. I highly doubt that Trump EVER actually had Covid, since he’s a proven liar. It’s probably a desperate attempt at getting a sympathy vote.

    And what about Melania? Is she having a miraculous recovery too?

    He went back to the WHITE HOUSE, took his mask off in the balcony, stood there giving a bonespurs solute to some civilians below for a photo op!
    The worst president ever in the history of the United States!

  18. Let us get out and VOTE for BIDEN/HARRIS in GREAT NUMBERS so there is NO
    QUESTION who is the clear WINNER! Let us save our DEMOCRACY!

    • I am with you hundred percent

    • We will save our great nation . When the patriots prevail against the communist left . Child toucher joe , and gun grabbing Harris will never defeat our constitutional rights . We will not walk In There hammer and sickle paradise . We will never be a flower in there communist garden of deceit . Commie joe has good handlers .

      Biden voters are a cult of Trump haters. Nothing more. Nobody in their right mind would vote for Biden if they cared about their fellow citizens.

  19. Taking his mask off while actively toxic says everything about this man.

  20. Seeing Trump’s “joy ride” motorcade…makes me sick to the stomach!
    Even after Biden respectfully pulled off all the negative ads about Trump and sending him “get well” message, and Obama, too, sending him the same “get well” message….what was he doing?
    He wanted to say that the COVID 19 was nothing to be afraid of, which is fine, as long as he is concerned, but he is the President right now, and what is he doing, except for repeating the downplay of the pandemic? The West Coast wildfire still continues spreading, destroying millions of lands and homes, and the cases of the COVID 19 still riding, especially around the places wherever he went. The person who is supposed to take the federal actions is nowhere roght now.
    We need to replace this selfish guy with someone who can step up to take the leadership with compassion and humanity to help the people.

    • @Eric Phelps *_You know that sniffing bicycle seats only leads to more voices in your head. Now relax, the restraints are for your own protection. Help is on the way. And the Dufus Parade called, they miss you ever so much, and they are lost without their leader. Maybe you can rejoin them after a few more shock treatments. Now put your pants back on, come in the house and drink your Clorox & Coke like a good girl._*

    • Biden better toughen up you can’t be civil and have morals when dealing with trump and his crime bosses you better come to slaughter you can be nice later…Kamala won’t be nice she’s coming for war and that’s the mentality you need when dealing with devils don’t be the sheep .. dont be weak.. be the lion

    • @Toni Ortiz I think Kamala has the qualities that Biden lacks and it helps to balance them as a team. She can be his attack dog, while he presents stability. We need someone to pull this country back from the edge of the abyss where we are standing.

    • @Toni Ortiz Amen. Joe was born to be the good cop. Thankfully Kamala is a pit bull. If you haven’t seen the pilot Captain Sully’s anti-Trump ad, seek it out and you’ll feel much better. Sully is an actual American hero and veteran.

    • @Toni Ortiz I agree with you. But also keeping the stable demeanor is important, when dealing with inconsistent aggressive personality. “Do not react. Listen and Observe first, and think” is what my mentor insisted. Trump is easily and quickly reacting, that’s why, without any prescribed narrative, his brain can’t function. Pence is different, though. At the same time, he is not good at lying, as we have seen him offering poor excuses and explanations when asked about his stay at the Trump hotel in a place far from the Meeting place Pence was s upposed to visit. His brain may be slower.
