    The only thing Trump succeeds at is making things worse.

    • @Totally Rad Listen moron, I said that you said that I was easy to despise, I didn’t say that you had said that you despised me. Get it? I didn’t twist your words. However, I asked you if you are flip-flopping, since you make the arguement that “In fairness some of you guys make do make yourselves pretty easy to despise.” Just to tell me later that you dont despise me? And now you included the word love? WTF? Are you insecure?

      @Totally Rad I would be happier. I’m always happier knowing there’s less stupidity in the world 👍

    • @Sperup AD thats the funny thing about it…. Its all written down yet even reading it over is pointless for you because why? Because everything you believe in is a lie and you speak what you believe. If that doesn’t work to get ya to the giggly girl place you love to be, you’ll stop at nothing and say anything just to make yourself feel better.

    • @Crystal Meth you seem like a nice lady so I’ll consider it in your behalf. Thank you!

    • @Totally Rad Exactly, your flip-flopping is evident. Finally you accept that fact. I had to explain it like if you were a school boy, but, you show some signs of intelligence. Good for you. Reread your posts a couple times more. Comprehension of the English language is another skill.
      Sorry if i broke your heart, but, exposing fakes is fun.
      Just like exposing tRump’s stupidity. Lysol anyone? Or Clorox is your thing? 😁😁😁😁

  2. Trump & GOP would be nothing without the support of Americans. We did this, now we die for it.

    • @T T But how many Actually voted at all ?
      Staying home is Voting Trump/GOP ( Same as wearing a MAGA HAT )
      VOTE BIDEN !

    • @Brenda Young I feel ya !
      & Understand .
      Just be there in November ok.
      Vote Biden !
      Let’s Flip the Senate & get rid of this GOP CANCER PARTY FOR GOOD !!!
      We need all Americans out & voting !

      @T T the electoral college members were bought by putin, i will go to my grave believing that. putin has many operatives in our government. he pays well.

      @GX Minn we need to demand they do away with the electoral college. people can be bought. tight oversight of every vote cast. he lost by 2/3’s in ’16, he has lost followers since.

    • Leo , how about pray and seek wisdom on this. They all talk a good game until they get elected.

    Trump didn’t authorize its release because he didn’t understand it when presented to him. It was very detailed & there were no pictures.

    • frictionRx9 My goodness the stupidity is so glaring that I really don’t know what to say anymore. Such a shame that stupidity cannot be cured.

    • That is the stuff silly LIBERALS & SCIENCE GEEKS care about.
      Trump is concerned with making as much $$$ from the office in case he looses the election.
      See that he does .
      VOTE BIDEN !

    • Not bad for a genius

    • @frictionRx9 & you are a Fox Zombie Slave 😂
      Who fight for Billionaires & Against working AMERICANS.
      Does that make you feel good?

    The government is there to serve the public that’s why the public vote and put them there. They are not there to serve Trumps needs and wants to the detriment of American people which is exactly what is happening. This very dangerous man needs to be removed from office. Forcibly if need musts

    • Here is a real fact for u

      Consider this:  ABC News executive producer Ian Cameron is married to Susan Rice, national security adviser. CBS President David Rhodes is the brother of Ben Rhodes, Obama’s deputy national security adviser for strategic communications. CNN President Virginia Moseley is married to former Tom Nides, Hillary Clinton’s former deputy secretary. ABC President Ben Sherwood is the brother of Obama adviser Elizabeth Sherwood. ABC News correspondent Claire Shipman is married to former Whitehouse Press Secretary Jay Carney. ABC News and Univision reporter Matthew Jaffe is married to Katie Hogan, Obama’s deputy press secretary. ABC President Ben Sherwood is the brother of Obama’s Special Adviser Elizabeth

      @Kathy Franklund naw,i don’t vote, but I do follow things , I could have went on and on about things that both sides do but it doesn’t matter. I have been disabled since2000 faulty surgery 3× left me in chronic pain ,nerve pain . The cdc set guidelines to take my meds away because people were abusing them, some people, not all or me,but I suffer , cdc shouldn’t have that much power to scare doctors out of their jobs. I never talk about what I told you, the pain is no fun. Sorry my problem not yours.

    This is further evidence that our “president” cares more about reelection than protecting Americans.
    He is already responsible for tens of thousands of deaths, and should be charged with negligent homicide.

    • @Grace Bertrand 2 weeks*

    • @Grace Bertrand He never called the virus a hoax. He called the Democrat’s accusation of his response to the virus their new hoax after the impeachment. Get your facts straight.

      Trump may not be the best president we’ve had, and has a lot of faults, but if you’re going to accuse him of anything make sure it’s true.

    • @Doris Moukoutou wake up! Trump is ignorant. He has ignored top Doctors and scientists and threw away a 28 pg doc by the CDC that would have helpedprotect the U.S. people. He is a sociopath. He said he relys on his gut feeligs, really. My gut feelings tell me “fire him” throw him in jail for manslaughter. 88,000 lives, people, U.S. citizen’s DEAD, so far, wake up. He is a charletan.

    Judging by the vids of airplane passengers…I’ll drive.

    Judging by the bars and restaurants…I’ll party and dine at home with my family this summer. I’m okay with that. You do you and I’ll do me. 😁

  9. Another example why Trump should be impeached for good. I would love to see him leave the WH like Nixon did. Where are the protest from Americans???

      I remember when he was still running for President, in his debates with Jeb Bush. He said 911 happened on W. Bush’s watch, therefor it was his fault. Well, there you go, Trump. This happened on your watch and this is your fault too.

      @David Renwick –those are hoaxes as well; as is your stupid “argument” that you got from Rudy Tootie Fresh & Fruity who also thinks we should track cancer patients to see who’s giving who cancer

    • Utah-kin2me? | May 16, 2020 at 11:00 PM | Reply

      @Nameless Ghost –that’s not what happened when H1N1 presented during Obama’s presidency; likely because he knows a virus isn’t a “hoax,” but those infections aren’t comparable as nor are competent Barack Obama and imbecilic King Mangoshart

  13. Asking a Republican to consider the science is like asking the Pope to consider becoming Protestant.

    • @Doorhenge It is far more effective when insulting someone to spell correctly. I did not insist I was not debating, as you inaccurately stated, I made it clear I did not wish to debate any further, since I said all I cared to say. So your reaction shows who and what you are. Own it. We will leave it at that, and if your hostile insecurity compels you to have the last word, have at it.

      @Doorhenge couldn’t have said it better myself

    • @jones “did not insist I was not debating” – “I am not interested in a debate.”

      stop it with your drive-by “joesarapistandanyonewhodoesntagreeis brainwashedohbythewaythisisnotupfordebatecuzimnotdebating” then duck your head back down.

      Sure.. everyone lies. do you think I’m a toddler? I mourn for Bernie too. how the heck did Biden get it? whad-ya-gonna-do though. if I don’t believe in voting what can I believe in.

    • Let us not forget. Republicans need all the high-tech warfare that come out of science and technology to spend endlessly on military which is totally useless against a minute virus. no problem cutting money for pandemic defense.

      When a president sabotages his successor he should spend the rest of his life in gitmo, but hey, let’s pretend that didn’t happen, right?

    • This president pushes conspiracy theories, ignores the advice of doctors, disseminates ludicrous cures and treatments and, *_won’t even wear a mask,_* if he sets an example that influences the gullible, brainwashed and naive members of his cult, when he does all this and more, he is proving he will stop at nothing to get reelected.

    • @Thomas Gormly It’s the usual problem with having a radically different person put into a position of power than was expected of or envisioned by the framers. In the same line of reasoning that we never think, hey should we make sure to design our cars in such a way that people don’t try to make their dogs drive them to work. Nobody competent would think of doing the things he’s done, and the safe guards that should be in place to stop this are being intentionally ignored/unused.

    Yeah, with a mentally healthy individual as our president you would reasonably expect the CDC to take the lead on any pandemic… But we have Donald Trump as our president currently and if we have learned anything so far it is that every single thing absolutely MUST revolve around him at all times, regardless of whether or not it makes any goddamned sense whatsoever… narcissistic sociopaths tend to be like that.

    • RE: Everything revolving around His Holy Lardness . . . I think you touched on why we’re having such a hard time getting rid of him. He’s like a bad lightbulb, only he can’t be unscrewed . . . . maybe if we could get Pelosi on a stepladder and Schiff and Nadler would just turn the ladder around and around . . . .(I think there used to be a joke in there somewhere) . . . .

  19. Trump when things are good: “I did it!” 😁
    Trump when things are bad: “Obama’s fault” 😫

    • @casadekarlito are you referring to the Russian collusion dealio where they were not able to prove it after claiming to have such solid concrete evidence? If you’re talking about conspiracies in that manner then for sure that persisting about Russia after this long is a conspiracy. especially if you’re going to ignore the lack of evidence according to the courts just to support the old argument. Sorry the ruling wasnt for the dems but they had their day in court and the court said no collusion. So they’re right when they criticize trump but wrong if they criticize Obama. Zero logic. Argument null and void. You say there’s no such thing as one conspiracy as you point to another, SMH. My identity isn’t tied to a political party so insulting any of them or including me into their fold to support your argument does nothing for me, sorry. Real talk instead of dumb insultory posts, I know you prolly got some good taking points.

    • @Kevo Heavo Are you just trying to make everyone laugh at you on purpose? I expect you are also a covidiot?

    • @mrJwlock
      There are some names and actions, at least heres one outlet talking about it.

    • @mrJwlock no democratic leaning publication is covering anything about this otherwise I’d post it. I don’t care if I’m right or you’re right, as long as the truth is found out and that doesn’t happen by ignoring it.

    • @Kevo Heavo Here’s an idea. Since you are so certain Obama has committed whatever deranged crime Trump thought of when he mentioned it in that broadcast why don’t you name the actual crime. Or provide some sort of evidence that would be even remotely plausible in a court. Until then this is just another case of Trump blaming Obama for wiretapping him for several months, then scuttling off to the next scandal he decides to stir up.
