    The fake president has never been helpful.

    The news becomes a lot more fun when you replace the word ‘tRump’ with ‘stupid’. Try it. Enjoy! 😘

  3. “A declaration of liberty” brings new meaning to ‘give me liberty, or give me death.

  4. Time to start holding Trump rallies!

  5. Not wearing a mask, is the new, Indecent Exposure.

    If we put a bowl of Tide pods next to a group of people who trust the President, I wonder how long it would take for someone to eat some if he told them it was a great idea.

  7. Trump’s cult has bought into his commitment to willful ignorance. Trump feeds them lies and misinformation on a daily basis, and they accept it without questioning the validity of anything he says. And at the same time, they will say that they are protesting for their “freedom.” What they don’t realize is that no man or woman can ever truly be free without factual information….without the truth. Without the facts and the truth, they are nothing more than slavish little tools for the person feeding them lies.

    McConnell acknowledged Thursday that he was “WRONG” when he falsely claimed that President Obama didn’t leave behind a plan for tackling a pandemic. The Obama administration had in FACT prepared a 69-page playbook for pandemic response — which Trump clearly did not read or follow. I understand that Trump is semi-literate, but that’s no excuse for him not tasking someone to read the playbook to him. I’m sure Baron would have been happy to read the playbook to his absent and wayward father.

    Moscow Mitch blamed the Obama administration for not taking steps to be ready for a potential pandemic.

    “We want to be early, ready for the next one, because clearly the Obama administration did not leave this administration any kind of game plan for something like this,” McConnell told Lara Trump, Trump’s daughter-in-law. ”

    “I was wrong,” Moscow Mitch said in an interview with Fox News’ Bret Baier. “They did leave behind a plan. So, I clearly made a mistake in that regard.” 😂😁

    And ye shall know the TRUTH, and the TRUTH shall set you free.

      Barron appears to have been afflicted with the same disability as his father.

      @All lies Wake up Go back to sleep. McCornhole lied, you dunce.

      And Susan Rice said she spent several hours with Michael Flynn going over that 69 page playbook. She said that in an interview about 2 weeks ago. McConnell didn’t make a mistake. He lied. And, in my opinion by saying he was mistaken, he admitted there was a playbook, and trump administration didn’t act on it. The Strategic National Stockpile is supposed to inventoried annually. So if as trump said, the cupboards were bare,they had 3 years to restock and didn’t. And despite what Trump and Jerald kushner said. The S.N.S. is not a Backup for the states; one of the primary purposes is to respond to state requests. Clearly stated. I googled the information.

    • @All lies Wake up Why are you watching it then?

  8. Well, the health “experts” only have degrees in medical science… pfft. Trump has degrees in Trumpenomics, 3rd grade math, Advanced Ignorance and a Phd in Limited Vocabulary.

  9. Bqoy, as a nation, you insist on validating this statement, every time I say it. “May God have mercy on the Divided States of Embarrassment.”

  10. “Ignorance is Strength.” This is the creed of the cult known as Trumpism.  We know this because of Trump sycophants like Kellyanne, who promotes the idea of “alternative facts.” And Rudy Giuliani, who famously declared that ” truth isn’t truth.”

    “Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party (Trump) is always right.”
    — George Orwell, 1984

    In George Orwell’s novel 1984, a Thoughtcrime is the criminal act of holding beliefs that opposes or questions the Party. A Thoughtcrime is thinking of anything that the Thought Police and the Party deems is illegal, or doubting the party line, or thinking anything contrary to the Party’s message..

    Within Trump’s cult, he has a name for those who commit “Thoughtcrimes” against him, like questioning his actions, and exposing his lies by fact checking him. Trump refers to these people as “Never Trumpers.”

    It’s not even a political divide. It’s smart people vs stupid/selfish people. All healthcare workers are wearing masks, and if you look at places like Spain, Italy, and Korea, literally everyone wears a mask.

      Across the globe masks are becoming more mandatory.

      @Kiss Kiss in the beginning, nobody knows anything about the disease – that’s why it was called novel coronavirus. NOVEL. And Trump blamed Obama for not having the tests for this disease.

    • Wendy's Garden | May 16, 2020 at 6:24 AM | Reply

      it entirely is the stupid vs the intelligent. And the stupid think they’re more intelligent than the intelligent and know more than those with 12 years of post-high-school education. And they don’t know how embarrassing they are to themselves when they open their mouths. Sad, really.

    Some positive covid person., please sneeze or caugh on tryimp

    • trump is a coward, while he says that testes aren’t needed, he actually tests everyone who comes in contact with him. coward bone spurs cadet is craping in his diapers from fear of corona but he struts without a mask because he knows all those around him are negative, it’s a show for his low IQ supporters.

    Give them liberty and/or give them Covid, is that their new catch phrase?

  18. sylvia yang | May 16, 2020 at 2:28 AM | Reply

    I noticed dr Fauci is wearing a mask, that’s more important.

  19. So the president hopes to win his reelection by promising a vaccine for the virus that his followers don’t believe exists. Will they call this the hoax vaccine?

  20. If they don’t want to wear masks then let them.. covid will do us a favor and get rid of the 45 cult…
