  1. Trump: I ask the media not to politicize the virus. Trump at his Rallies: The Corona Virus Is a Hoax!!

      Probably Corona beer.

    • @Joshua Calvert are you drinking that Faux News milk by the gallon or just getting it from the Orange haired asshat himself. Oh let me guess when he bends over and says “here’s a tootsie roll from the backside you actually eat it. ” He called it a hoax before he realized it was and IS going to sink his clown car of a “presidency” 1 word of advice for you Josh since you seem to be long gone……..KEEP ON EATIN AND SLURPIN” While those of us who don’t believe his swill try to get this thing contained. MORON

    • And he wears his MAGA HAT TO VISIT THE CDC. THEN HAS THE NERVE JUST SAY WE NEED TO STOP POLITICIZING THIS. HE HAS POLITICAL RALLIES AND GOES GOLFING WELL THE AMERICAN PEOPLE GO UNTESTED FOR THE VIRUS.
      THIS IS SHAMEFUL WE HAVE TESTED FOUR PER MILLION WELL SOUTH KOREA HAS TESTED FOUR THOUSAND. PATHETIC.
      THE ILLUSION THAT WE HAVE THE BEST HEALTHCARE SYSTEM IN THE WORLD HAS BEEN SHATTERED, BY ONE VIRUS

      Trump’s followers are brain dead

  2. Here in the US, it is going to be far worse than China and Italy because Trump and Fox have been saying that COVID-19 is all a “hoax” created by the Democrats.

    Those sneaky Democrats got the entire world to go along with the “hoax”. Fox viewers are truly brainwashed.

    • @Kevin McNeil You just gave an excellent demonstration of the hatred and belligerent ignorance that Trump engenders in his fans.

      You are being used.

      @mrcooldeadly85 by all means of you think u can do better and are aware of all presidential procedures. Wht are u not running for President?

    • That is very SAD….but most likely very prophetic. I am glad I live in Canada, where everyone has healthcare and the government is working hard to flatline the curve. The infections in the US are about to go ballistic and the government lost the ability to control it weeks ago. The economy is going to tank, many people are going to die, and all because you elected a liar in chief. Nice move!

      @MrDopug well thank god u don’t live here… judge from afar.

    • Anthony Joseph | March 12, 2020 at 2:14 PM | Reply

      I’m not sure you understand Martine Mikita. He IS thanking God he doesn’t live there. Also, he has as much right to his judgments as any one else. Isn’t freedom of speech supposed to be a big deal in the U.S.?
      It is in Canada 🇨🇦. Don’t get me wrong, I wish you Americans all the best & I don’t want any of us to get sick. It’s not helpful though that your leader was pretending like there wasn’t a problem when there clearly was. Had Obama done this Trump himself and the entire GOP would have been out for blood. If you’re a Trump fan then you probably know his history well enough to know this is true whether you admit it online or not.

    The Incompetence Of Trump is Staggering! After a 13 minute Very Important Address to the Nation, The White House then had to put out not One but Two Major Clarifications a few minutes later. He read a 13 minute Teleprompter Statement and made Two Glaring Mistakes! The Man is a Baffoon!
    I never knew a man could tell so many lies.
    He has a different story for every set of eyes.
    How can he remember who he talking to?
    I know it isn’t me, and I hope it isn’t you.
    This is the Man you want in Charge of Our Health and Safety?
    God Help us!
    He looks like a man that is in so far over his head,,,, The Incompetence just oozes from him.
    Trump looks like he’s been embalmed. He’s got all the morality, emotions and empathy of somone who is Dead. The man is a Vile, Repugnant excuse for a Human being. The world won’t be Safe till Malania finally flushes the mad man’s Ashes down the toilet where the belong. So I hope he keeps eating those Big macs, the heart attack can’t come quick enough for rest of us on planet earth.

  4. Wow they are really trying hard to appear serious when they have been irresponsible hacks the whole time.

    • Correct. Actions speak louder than words. Donald will continue to hold rallies and undermine the message of the professionals.

    • @The Blade lol and the daft morons will go to the rallies. omergerd. im loling hard

      Seth Abramson’s Tweet:

      NPR source says trump blocked coronavirus testing in january to aid his reelection chances by keeping US infection figures low.

  5. 6 weeks too late and your giving them a pass. Its to late Joe your on the same curve as Wuhan and Italy.

    • @Frank Winkhorst Always a Spelling Punctuation Troll online now days ,! What other purls of wisdom do you have up your Arss, ?

  7. The irresponsible rhetoric is coming from the Head.

  8. People should know trump has no higher priority other than staying out of prison.

    • @Crystal Giddens Nahhh, but after listening to the chosen one I would imagine you couldn’t tell the difference anymore.

    • @Fuzzy H Yep. lol

    • Better English | March 12, 2020 at 11:11 AM | Reply

      @Crystal Giddens So why ban flights from Europe ? Why is the whole of Italy on lock down ? Why not quote some other sources ?

    • Crystal Giddens | March 12, 2020 at 11:18 AM | Reply

      @Better English because too many believe the MSM lies. banning flights is not the same as putting entire cities on lock down! one day you people claim he is a would be dictator, the next you want him to put the entire country on lock down! *MORONS!~*

  9. Irresponsible rhetoric by Trump. Say it Pence, say it!

  10. Don’t believe you Pence.

  11. Trump was inept last night. He seemed like a 🤖 running out of battery power.

  12. Skabetti Spaghetti | March 12, 2020 at 9:39 AM | Reply

    Pence, sticking to the party line while intimating truth.

    • @Skabetti Spaghetti wrong only thing I’m freighted off is if the marxist dictators on the left get in power and I’m not for political right BS the best qualified ffg for the position no mater what religion race or gender and if it talks and acts like a marxist it’s a marxist

    • Skabetti Spaghetti | March 14, 2020 at 12:47 PM | Reply

      @KZ Ha ha. Ok. I’m outa here.

    • @Skabetti Spaghetti Nothing is free in this world but you soul and to be a slave to government control and the LOSS of FREEDOM for power to Marxism

    • @Skabetti Spaghetti look at Catholic Nancy Pelosi for not to work like it was in Obama administration a stimulus bill to promote not to work free extended unemployment benefits than welfare and trillions wasted and when it should of went to job training as Obama doubled the deficit from 10 trillion in 240 years to 20 with a collapsed economy and if Bernie Sanders the Communist it go from 23 trillion to 50 trillion for dont have to work and free this and that to make middle class Americans stuck to poor and poor stay poor

    • @Skabetti Spaghetti Hahahahaha can’t wait to November as the marxist dictators on the left are finished and the house and Senate will be Conservativism marjory and Trump reelected and keeping America great and democratic socialism to Marxism will end and illegals won’t be living free in our country and millions sent back to there country of origin

  13. VOTE FOR A CLOWN EXPECT A CIRCUS

      Looks like both of you are correct.

    • terry walker | March 13, 2020 at 3:26 AM | Reply

      Yeah so you put a candidate that clearly has signs of dementia! Dummies 🙄

    • @terry walker, Bidens ‘dementia’ has been addressed numerous times in the past and it’s clear that it’s the result of his life long stutter as his speeches are really no different now to how they have always been.

      Dementia sufferers don’t pause and choose alternate words in seconds and then continue on with their long speech as Biden does. They stop and have trouble continuing on at all, because they have dementia and can’t think of alternative words to use in place of the blocked words, because that’s what dementia does to the human brain…

      Think for yourself instead of blindly toeing the party line and repeating the rhetoric.

    • catsandrubber | March 13, 2020 at 7:05 AM | Reply

      terry walker another case of whataboutism, the president of the USA is mishandling a world wide health pandemic and lying to your face about the facts but look over there.

    • @terry walker I’d take Biden with (falsely reported) dementia over Trump’s idiocy any day of the week.

  14. The US clown show continues.

    • @V “Bone Spurs” — what an amazing name, you are just so cleaver and a hypocrite by the way. You know Biden and Bloomberg also avoided the draft by the same method? Bloomberg Flat Feet, Biden claimed asthma yet played football and was a lifeguard. Sanders was an conscience objector (great Commnader in Chief material).

    • @John Smith- “Perhaps you should just keep your mouth shut.”

    • @A P – You got any proof to back your claims?

      Steve H …the clowns. Are American gullible naive dupes capable of believing something black …is white, if the TV says so…media is a weapon of control…The TV watchers, that believe anything and everything thru fear indoctrination are the tards holding back the uprising revolution which will change everything by ousting the Zionist infiltrators and israeli foreign govt ruining our country…

    • @John Smith You’re right. Everything is just fine. ;|

    Too bad the same people who think trump’s right and it’s a Democratic lie have no earthly idea what “irresponsible rhetoric” means.

  16. The bar couldn’t be any lower for this administration, and they still are incapable of meeting this moment with truth and action.

    • Do you think Biden could have done differently? That man doesn’t know what planet he is on, or what state he is in!

    • addicted2youtub | March 12, 2020 at 12:10 PM | Reply

      Someone said that he has good friends named Xi and Abe. Check what China and Japan are doing. Covering up in one country and sluggish testing and lying in another country. That’s what his friends are doing now. The situation could be a combination of two, the worst case.

    “… irresponsible rhetoric …”. So, a couple of big words when one will do: “LYING”.

  18. Patrick Rogers | March 12, 2020 at 10:46 AM | Reply

    Notice Pence didn’t say who the “irresponsible rhetoric” was coming from? He’s letting people fill in the blanks with whatever they’re comfortable thinking.

  19. “it’s a hoax”…that is way beyond “Irresponsible Rhetoric.

    “The GOP is the worlds most dangerous entity” does anyone need any more proof!
