  1. Strikingly similar leaders

      You’re right. They both love their countries. True patriots. God bless them.

    • I agree one is Stalin and the other one is Hitler

    • very different leaders

      24 States have Democratic Governors
      26 States have Republican Governors
      Out of 132,568 Covid related deaths:
      •94,700 deaths occurred in states with Democratic governors
      •If you add Mass. (GOP Gov but major city where deaths occurred has a Dem mayor) — that total jumps to 102,883 Covid deaths.
      If you do the math, thats almost 80% of all Covid-19 related deaths are responsible under Democratic ran states! That is a fact.

      @Mike Moment Trump now fancies himself a “wartime president.” How is his war going? By the end of March, the coronavirus had killed more Americans than the 9/11 attacks. By the first weekend in April, the virus had killed more Americans than any single battle of the Civil War. By Easter, it may have killed more Americans than the Korean War. On the present trajectory, it will kill, by late April, more Americans than Vietnam. Having earlier promised that casualties could be held near zero, Trump now claims he will have done a “very good job” if the toll is held below 200,000 dead.

  2. Looks like Donnie has a new lover……

  3. If Trump could read he would probably see the beginning of this headline as a compliment.

      If you could read you would see that the GLOBAL death count is the population of Wyoming. I don’t understand how you can say that 500K is a big number compared to the 7.6 BILLION people that live on the planet.

      @Lipstick Capone humanity is approaching a herd immunity to COVID-19 due to rising recoveries from the virus. However, mainstream media has been ignoring the recovery numbers. Montage of officials and dr say precisely that they say someone died of “covid” when they DID NOT. Alot of the cases are due to more testing. Most of the new cases are young people showing none or very little symptoms. The media will not report the death rate. The increase in hospitalizations are people who couldn’t get treatments and surgeries for other ailments. I’m not going to listen to the lame stream media’s B. S. Still voting for Trump.

    • There are some really stupid people in this world.

      Libs hate facts. Lets try this

      So far 150 people have died in the US from covid under the age of 24

      Over July 4th week 150 people were shot….all in LIBERAL CITIES

    Trump showed the whole world that how ignorant and disgraced America can be.

    • Logic B4Religion yeah and Obama showed the world what pussies we can be

    • The goal was never “fewest number of cases”, it was “flatten the curve”, which we’ve achieved. Fatality rate hasn’t changed despite the increase in positive tests. We’ll be closer to herd immunity by winter and have a smaller spike.

    • David Wilson it’s true. There’s little rats running around in black masks with no lives. I’m willing to bet a large chunk of those who voted for trump but may not agree with everything he does, is more intelligent and more productive than you

    Both are liars and criminals.

  8. COVID-19: “Perhaps I didn’t make myself clear the first time, so let me try again. I am an equal opportunity virus. To me, all of your lives are equally worthless. I am immune to Trump’s lies and gaslighting. Ignorance and misinformation from Trump and Fox only makes me stronger. I can’t be defeated with phony patriotism, guns, flag waving, or denial. I can’t be defeated with magic, because I am real, and magic is not. I can only be defeated with science, facts, maturity, unselfishness, and common sense. I am nothing like the flu, but the flu is a fan of mine, and it wants to be like me when it grows up. Trying to ignore me won’t save you. I can’t be defeated with thoughts and prayers, so going to places of worship won’t save you. You may not be interested in me, but I am obsessed with you. Currently there is no vaccine for me, and that’s the problem. I recognize no one’s authority. Selfish ignorant people like Trump and his cult are the wind beneath my wings, they give me life. I may have lost some strength in other countries, but thanks to Trump, America is making me great again.” 💪😆

      Daniel Martin i day something along those lines to my mom everyday. It’s quite frustrating to say the least. Here’s some disturbing insights into the cult( I’ve thought of it that ways since she sent me prophecies for trump before the election) There are quite a few videos and self proclaimed prophets who have it in their heads that trump is somehow the precursor to Jesus coming back and rapturing everybody. There’s a separate conspiracy theory for each and every transgression the man has committed. There are TONS of videos on this and dear god, those comment sections are sad. My mom is very religious but from what I see her love for trump trumps her love for Jesus and I would urge anyone else in this mindset to take a long hard look at the lengths you go to make excuses for this man. If he isn’t a golden calf I don’t what is. Idolatry is still a sin people. I know not everyone is the same as my mom but she has become what I have come to know as trumps base to a T.

    • U r an IDIOT

      Try this. Covid has killed 150 people under the age of 24 in the US so far

      Maybe people were listening to Democrats in March telling everyone to continue shopping and take in a show? By the way for you programmed leftists. A new study in Texas shows only 15% of hospital beds are used for covid-19 patients. Most new cases are of young people associated with protests. Also hospitals are listing deaths as covid-19 no matter what people died of. We know that for a fact. This is why uniformed leftists come off as such misinformed dumbasses.

      @Raw Bacon It is extremely stupid to measure it by million. Depends on how the population is spread (high density or low density). Compared to China then you do even worse! Absolute figures are absolute figures! If your president would have had any brain the disease could have been contained to New York, with strict measures, internal plane fights cancelled etc. Now it will be over 200.000 deaths, also because of a partly stupid and undisciplined population aka ‘Trump believers’.

    • MrSparklespring | July 7, 2020 at 5:30 PM | Reply

      @Ben Correct : we were the only country in Europe who didn’t downplay the figures, (like Spain and the UK did). When you compare the mortality rate of that period (stats of undertakers) it confirms our figures. In the UK the mortality rate was double as high! What does that tell you? Right!

  12. Two far right wannabe dictators who share a disdain of science and anyone more educated than they are. Truly dangerous men to have in charge.

    • cj p but but but he blocked travel from China, so he did the right thing didnt he? Not like he could have done anything about banning people from entering the country. Like he tried to do with Muslims from certain countries. How quickly you idiots forget what the racist in chief does. Feel free to explain science to us then. Should be fun to watch you struggle with that one

    • @monokhem count by airport moron that means distribution. Europe has 44 small countries packed into the same size has the usa. What if state to state travel was considered “international”
      Also idiots would believe china’s numbers. You morons want to blame culture and political slant has the reason for the spread.

    • @jdnb86 so you believe this virus exist?do you believe in wearing masks?

  13. The dynamic duo together can’t open a paper bag!😂 It’s AMAZING how people listen to these jeopardy champions🤣🤣🤣

  14. Imagine having our lives back to normal…it’s gonna take at least 2-3 years at this rate. Goodluck everyone

  16. If the US is this bad during the summer. Just imagine if we continue like this into the fall and winter. This upcoming flu season is gonna be a big wave…

    • coronavirus isn’t a flu! also, it’ll coincide with flu season! i can’t understand this logic

    • @bingo_fuel I’ve always taken the “flue season” happening because as it gets colder and/or rainy, people tend to gather more.
      More people use public transportation. More people gather in malls, cinemas and the like.
      That’s why the flu (and now Covid) will spread easier and faster.
      As you say, correctly, covid is NOT a flu virus.
      It spreads a lot easier than flu and it’s much more deadly than flu.

      Some idiots try to say that covid is a flu by saying that the flu kills 70,000 people PER YEAR.
      They suck at math, because we are only 6 months into this and already there’s 132,993 deaths…. and we have 5 .5 more months to do just for this year.
      AND add to that, people… STUPID PEOPLE are acting in such a selfish, moronic and foolish way that they are now SUPER SPREADERS!
      It’s going to get one hell of a lot worse before this is over.

      Covid-19 just might be the illusive cure for STUPID.

    • @Blondie SL stupid people keep quoting the death number like it hasn’t been discredited over and over again. People who died to car accidents and gunshots are included in that number. People who were never tested or diagnosed are included in that number. It’s not accurate. It’s inflated.
      If someone is infected and tests positive, they continue to test that person. Every time that person tests positive, it counts as a new case even though it’s the same person.
      The deaths are inflated and the total number of cases are inflated. Only morons are following along with the numbers the news continues to give after they have been discredited over and over.

    • @Blondie SL also, it’s really clear that the overall number of deaths is down this year. Less people died this year so far than last year at this point. It’s simple math to see that less people are dying during covid than when it wasn’t around.

    • @FE Gamingmaybe because of lockdown- less travel -less car accidents? psychopath serial killers are afraid they might get the virus when stabbing their victim(body fuild exposure)so maybe their not into killing someone right now?viral respiratory diseases may decrease because of social distancing masks etc.people with comorbidities like people dying of covid 19 now instead of dying with heart attack next month?I dont know man can you send me the link of this stats?

  17. This allmost looks like genocide

    • So you blame the Chinese then. The goal was never “fewest number of cases”, it was “flatten the curve”, which we’ve achieved. Fatality rate hasn’t changed despite the increase in positive tests. We’ll be closer to herd immunity by winter and have a smaller spike.

    • @blurglide duh….china was like an early warninig system to the world where china was the first country identified and reported the NEW virus.
      many countries already found coronavirus in its waste water
      samples dated way before china had an outbreak…

    Like no one downplay before

    this melody sticks in my brain all the time.🤣

  19. Didn’t know they were making another sequel to “ Dumb & Dumber”!

    • With you playing dumber? Our highest daily death rate was on April 21st. Since then the national daily death rate has fallen 92% So now all that fake news is talking about is the rising number of infections. But that rising number has 2 causes. One is increase in testing. Two is that they are finding that there are between 10 and 20 times the number of people that have anti-bodies for Covid-19 and they are counting those as infections. And while they concentrate on the infection numbers now – they have stopped talking about the death rate.

    • @vsaluki R over 1000 people are dying a day and this idiot is saying the US is doing great.
