    Easy to tell he’s reading. Embarrasing.

  2. Trump : There were million people in my rallies but they were Invisible. Believe me.

    • @Joy Phillips Really? More like dudes and dudettes wanting to party like there is no virus. Have you listened to the interviews of those infected? They have no idea where they live let alone are they socially aware.

      @Joy Phillips in case you didn’t know there were people of every ethnicity and political influence participating in the protests. And most of them wore make. Don’t forget trumps Coronafest rallies with thousands of maskless supporters.

    He’s a wartime president but don’t feel compelled to encourage Americans to contribute to the war effort (wear masks, etc.)

    • @Joy Phillips And who does all the hating? FOX has a subliminal message you are too stupid to pick up on. Since you are a FOX viewer you are smarter than the average bear now go to MSM and enlighten the sheep. And here you are! We love and trust MSM. You and Tucker with an F have no credibility.

      @Warm Violet We’re OK with you not voting for Joe You wouldn’t vote for Jesus if the Daughter Dater told you not to,

      @88Gibson LesPaul << U know NOTHING about what I would do and also NOTHING about who is a "daughter dater" 😃😜 >>> perhaps U should learn more about the people U think U know , before U ASSume what people think that U do NOT know at all 💡 [ We recognize the Leftist Manipulation and will say ” NO to JOE” ] don’t worry about how others Vote ; we don’t worry about how U vote

      @Warm Violet After reading some of Mary Trump’s book, we all actually DO know who is a daughter-dater: Ivanka’s father. She’ll be coming out with her own MeToo book as soon as daddy is out of the picture.

    It’s very sad that our president and our government doesn’t care about
    AMERICANS HEALTH ,VERY SAD

    • Charles L Jones | July 7, 2020 at 2:37 PM | Reply

      @Clean king nobody wants to shut the country down for eighteen months moron. Only the top one percent doesn’t care one way or another because they can survive through it. Wtf makes you think poor democrats doesn’t need to work. But they do have common sense which is a missing element for most trump supporters. Numbers are increasing in virus infections as well as deaths because some people are ignoring protocols and opening up too soon. It would be a shame if we have to shut down again because stupid governor’s like brian kemp of georgia and Ron desantis of Florida opened up too soon and still refuses to shut down beaches and clubs despite numbers going through the roof.

      @The Tweatles and I’m willing to bet neither of these two groups supports bounties on our soldiers.

    • @Charles L Jones Some examples of Kaleigh’s lies?

    • Joy Phillips, what do the Democrats have to do with anything? The comment was about Trump.

    • Charles L Jones Sir death are not increasing!! #facts. The virus is in the air! #facts. The Democrat party was trying to pass a bill that would let everyone one vote from home and wanted everyone and doesn’t want the economy open now! The bars are closed in Jacksonville Florida..#facts. 18 months was the original timeline of the vaccine creation. #facts. Democrats didn’t want the economy to open until we had a vaccine#facts…. I’ll wait

  5. Trump truly believes that human decency is a radical ideology.

    Trump has ushered in a culture of corruption, indecency, indifference, pathological ignorance, selfishness, chaos, and self-destruction. So much so that nothing good emanates from him. Trump constitutes a highly toxic and malevolent affliction on this country.

  6. Forrest Gump could have been better President than Donald Trump.

      Ceez o you just described the laws of the animal kingdom- survival of the fittest. Only the strongest survive. And yes, last time I checked humans still belong to that kingdom. And before you continue w/ ur fake news agenda point. All skin colored people throughout human history have been both slaves and slave masters. It’s getting really old and really dumb. Try something new, like getting a new idea from a Cracker Jack box.

    • @Isaiah Gauthier look at Trump s speech at Grand Canyon he slurred his speech a lot

    The logic of a three year old President Donald Trump.
    If we test less, there will be fewer victims. Little Donald this is awesome.
    If we don’t test cancer patients there will be no cancer,
    if we don’t do an AIDS test there will soon be no more AIDS.
    Awesome this three year old Donald Trump.

      @Bill N well I think a lot of people here and abroad would accuse of him of racism. I don’t think he is at all. He only makes these remarks in a jokey sense. Our humour is not really very PC generally. Mostly because anyone with an ounce of common sense knows it’s not meant maliciously. He’s been bloody brilliant during the pandemic. They’ve helped us out financially during lockdown. Paid 80 % of pay for the majority of the workforce, helped the self employed and business owners by giving government loans in order for them to be in a position to re open. We’ve had a lot deaths from Covid which is awful.

    • Charles L Jones | July 7, 2020 at 3:21 PM | Reply

      @Michael Brinkers I totally disagree. What will Trump run on . One hundred thirty thousand deaths. Forty million deaths. Hatred and divisiveness motivated by racism and police brutality . Ignoring relevant issues and deflecting to mask his iieffectiveness as a leader. Abolishing insurance with no alternative during a pandemic. Lowering testing and diminishing funds for venue testing. Misinformation and undermining health experts who tries to keep Americans safe . And now ignoring the fact our soldiers had bounties on their heads claiming he wasn’t informed and refusing to address the issue. Trump will lose and mail in ballots which will negate a lot of the gerrymandering republicans always do will be his kryptonite. Excuse my error . I meant to say forty million unemployed.

      @Dale Thomas with Trump it isn’t. We are not what we used to be or stand for. Trump has diminished our standing as well as our diplomacy with our allies.

      LMFGDAO…🤣

      🤘🏼🤣🤘🏼📿🦅❤️💯

  15. Why does trump bother to be tested every day if 99% of coronavirus cases are harmless, and why does he have everyone around him tested, and why did he have the people at his rally sign the waiver, and for what reason does he call himself a wartime president, if 99% of coronavirus cases are effectively harmless ?
    The war trump is waging is on his landsmen, many of which are dying and suffering due to his negligence, irresponsibility, immaturity, incompetence, ignorance, greed, narcissism, vileness, lack of empathy, lack of interest, immorality and stupidity.
    And because of his lies, lies, lies, lies and more lies.

      Yes. But calm down. Dont need to argue. Trump cannot even do 3rd grade math. We all know trump is a moron. He is the dumbest guy I have ever seen. SO..stop trying to correct him. Instead, we all should focus on how to get rid of him, sooner the better.

      trump has sniffles, like a drug addict snorting drugs everyday. Because he gets a swab up his nose everyday. NEWS FLASH! that does not protect you from anything. He will test positive if he keeps tempting fate. Then the narrative will change.

    • he doesnt test..he’s lying..thats why his staff is getting sick. he’s an asymptomatic spreader.

  16. It’s depressing that there is so many stupid people in America 🤦🏽‍♂️

      @Christopher Sim did I go over your head? Or maybe under the pedestal on which you’ve put yourself. Either way, you’re boring. Exactly what I expected from you. To your point, if I were stupid I’d share your opinion and be counted among the media’s herd of blissfully ignorant sheep.

      @Mike Romigh Lol. You supporting an incompetent president just proves how stupid and ignorant you are. Like you said “you’re too ignorant to even notice how stupid you are”. Trump sure loves his sheeps uneducated alright. Easiest to brainwash and control while letting them think they’re actually thinking for themselves. LOL.

      @Christopher Sim I didn’t support Obama. I see you’re about as original as him. But hey, A for effort my man. Trust me, it gets easier when you grow up, leave moms basement and learn to think and do things for yourself. Don’t hurt yourself on the stairs.

  17. At this point, I don’t know who was more under-prepared for their job: Trump at being president, or McEnany at defending all of Trump’s racism

  18. His moronic test less = less cases is priceless.. one statistic he can’t play with is 130,000. No ideas just imbecilic ranting

    “99% are totally harmless.” What an absolutely ignorant and dishonest thing to say. Simple math shows around 3% of people DIE from it, and many people will have effects that could last the rest of their lives. VOTE HIM OUT ON NOV 3rd!!
