    Let those who think this virus is a hoax work in the meat factories and why hasn’t trump visited one to show his support?

    • Peter Bills | May 17, 2020 at 7:34 PM | Reply

      @TheKyubiisaan ” I really hope he does go for a visit and shake some hands” Likewise. He’s fearless and most likely will.

    • @Peter Bills and immediately after visiting the meat plants he should resume his huge rallies nationwide.

      @Dekan Elad “huge rallies nationwide.” They’re large right? Why can’t the left do the same?

    • @Peter Bills trump needs pep rallies to keep his ego overinflated
      Plus, it’s corona time! All those brave souls who know it’s a hoax need to get out there, gather large and sing praises to the great pumpkin! 😃

  2. The interesting thing about covid is how it exposes the truth of the american system. Master serf… work risk death. so we can eat pork chops…

      Thomas Armsworthy Jr And that’s because it is due to something they call “African swine fever” that has led to the death of half of their total heard. I got this information from Reuters. If you want the real news, you have to go to multiple sources, unfortunately.

      It also shows how much of an impact Man has on nature. Only 2 months of lock-down has cleared the air to record levels, had wildlife coming into cities that hadn’t been seen in decades, the Canals in Venice were clear for the first time in modern History, etc. It’s impossible for Republicans to deny climate change now that we have direct evidence of the impact Man plays………

      NO, the old people and the medically compromised people should be our first priority…. Secondly, our healthy people need to go back to work yesterday…. NONE of this has changed since day one.

      @Freedom & Liberty Bot why ask a bot questions? You give out false information anyway.

      @omi god Not if the old an immunocompromised stay home….. in which 70+% don’t work to begin with… This isn’t rocket science, this is common sense… what don’t you ignorant and/or uninformed people not get?

      @omi god OF course, the folks in nursing homes need total lockdown…. No one without the antibody allowed in or out

    • Now MSM is letting US know that America is not a their interest…

    When meat producers/packers use healthier safer work conditions- all of us become much safer!

    Trump needs to protect these people. The government needs to ensure safe working conditions for these people. This is by far one of the most dangerous and demanding jobs. These people have to deal with all sorts of guidelines, machinery that can literally cut limbs off and exposure to animals which can infect them. So please be thankful next time your chowing down on that steak or eating a burger.

    • I’m sure RUMP is very thankful every time he slobbers down a McDonald’s hamburger !!l! He has arranged for testing for ALL which makes the Meat Packers completely and totally safe…. if you believe my statements you should join RUMP’S LYING cultist party immediately… POWER FOR THE TRUTH!!!!

  10. they don’t care about the working poor

  11. Trump only regrets that the workers have but one life to lose for Trump’s reelection.

  12. Solution: stop eating meat 😉

  13. You can bet coward bone spurs is only concerned about his stomach when it comes to this subject.

    • I’m sure he is injecting his McDonald covid-19 Hamburger with chlorine bleach before he eats it… His intellect tells US this is so…!

    They put the food in our mouths and we allow these conditions exist, if they are not healthy, we can not be. Crush Republicans Profiteers 2020!

    Next time you hear a cop say they have a dangerous job, tell him he’s a wimp compared to a meatpacker.

    Everything Trump does he benefits from. Corrupt Mad Man. He doesn’t care .
