    Tomorrows headline “Trumps blames bats for the coronavirus”

    • I think tomorrow’s headline will read. Trump blames Obama or Democrats for the Coronavirus.

    • That would show intelligence. Try “Trump blames Baseball Bats for the coronavirus” is more his speed.

    • Don’t be ridiculous Football Nerd. There’s no f’n way bats could have done this. Don’t be silly. Obviously the person responsible is Batman, duh 🦇

      There’s only one headline I want to see, “trump steps down from the presidency”.

    He self-containing himself from the world stage for fear of being laughed at.

  5. WHO had a reliable test, but Trump vetoed that in favor of developing our own at the CDC. Except that they’ve been so defunded over the years by Republicans that a major failure on their part was just a matter of time.

      And Trump appointed a crony with a baaaad reputation to head the CDC. Redfield is a raving evangelical who was castigated for his management of AIDS in the 80s. He left an earlier job under a cloud. In other words, another idea Logue without the skills or the record to run the highly respected CDC.

      The REPUBLICANS are always saying that Government is the problem and when elected go about proving it

    • Hanny Hawkins | May 18, 2020 at 10:44 PM | Reply

      Richard Hunt Yes and no. Government isn’t the problem. The Republicans who don’t believe in good government are the problem.

    “Iceberg right ahead!!” Trump: “It’s all a hoax.” CRASH!!!! Trump: “I take no responsibility for this!” (Ship is sinking) Trump: “The previous Captain was totally incompetent!!”

    He’s like the evil villain in a James Bond movie trying to destroy the world.

    • Or Pinky and the Brain trying to take over the world.

    Eric is a whinny little rich boy who couldn’t get a job flipping burgers if it wasn’t for his daddy……

  12. it’s like the employee whose answer was it was always someone else’s fault, eventually the employer (we the people) realized that if the employee never made a mistake he certainly was not making any effort at working, so the employee was rightfully so fired. YES this employee of we the People will be fired! VOTE BLUE!

    45 is a failure. Always has been and still is.

    You all remember how Mr. “Wartime President “ claimed he would run toward the shooting after Parkland. Now he’s too scared to go to a global meeting after being laughed at by the mean kids. He’s a waste of space, air, and video!

    Dodging his presidential responsibilities like he dodged the draft. Guess those bone spurs came back.

    • G G it started but because of how little the govt cared or payed attention to it it spiked to the peak it is at right now and if this ignorance continues there will be a second spike that’ll most likely be bigger than the first

    • G G and I say ignorance because instead of fixing any of the issues and problems that are going on right now he insteads choosing to blame everything on others and ignoring the questions that actually involve anything more than 50% of thinking and processing.

    • @John Villalovos That’s more like it…

    • Hanny Hawkins | May 18, 2020 at 10:38 PM | Reply

      This is true. Australia’s infections mainly came from the USA and Italy. That’s why our borders are closed to non-residents. And at this rate, although we may soon open our borders to New Zealanders, it will be a looonnnnng time before Americans are allowed into Australia.

    • Gilbert Woodward | May 18, 2020 at 10:49 PM | Reply

      @John Villalovos your GOD Trump is at fault. Not the Democrats. Learn to read and research.

  17. He blames the CDC? – An agency he stripped and then headed with one of his incompetent shills? Azar is another one of his puppets. Don’t fall for it folks.

  18. I am waiting to hear Trump call the Coronavirus the “ObamaVirus”

  19. It’s the same thing as the caravans …. trump blames people for the things he does himself.

  20. Ok, folks, enough of this tragedy of 90,000 dead Americans. Come November, remember to vote Trump out.
