      @Virgo 69 I stated to make sure your D levels are in check. I frequently have mine checked as I was deficient as I stated as well. My body is not as effective in absorption/conversion. More than 40% of the population is deficient in America. It’s high time healthcare starts acknowledging it especially now. Studies started coming out in Spain in the hospitals to back my statements up as well.

      @Virgo 69 I will also tell you it was a crapshow getting that testing accomplished as well. In the end an Endocrinologist had a doctors butt.

    • @Theresa Wagner Vitamin D testing is very common in Wisconsin. We don’t get a lot of sun up here. Studies have shown low levels of vitamin D in patients with MS. I have MS and that’s how I know that info, along with high levels of vitamin D causing hypercalcemia.

      @Virgo 69 that’s where I had issues…..Manitowoc and Two Rivers both let my son and I suffer for quite some time. Where I live now its automatically done.

      @Virgo 69 in fact threw every pill at me they could while I was accused of beating my son from the bruises he got for simply pushing on his arm. Same doctor blew off the longer intestine he has as well. Poor kid lived through that while she told him to eat more fiber. Because she failed to find that long intestine as well not finding it at birth he almost bleed to death. What I’m saying is be aware there.

  3. He is doing it out of spite

    Trump will go down as the single greatest punchline in American history. We will be telling the younger generations about him when we’re 90 and they won’t believe it until we show them video clips of his insanity.

    • I keep wishing he would get the same strain of Covid that killed his brother . . . Is that wrong of me?

    • Jake : Let’s hope we’re only telling them about how they, “tried to,” do that, huh? I, for one, will be casting my vote and I’m prepared to defend and enforce that vote, if needs be, right up to Biden’s Inauguration

      @Ash Roskell good man thats what America needs more thinkers like you

    • @Ash Roskell Wait, his brother died of Covid? I thought he was just old.

    • @JamieLan2011 Well you know they would never admit if his brother died of covid. He was younger than Trump was. As Trump said about all the people dead from covid “It is what it is.” And I say about his brother’s death, It is what it is. The sad thing is, I’m sure you and I or any other normal human being, cares more about Trump’s brothers death than Trump does (as well as the 200,000+ dead). I don’t know if it’s true or not but I heard Trump was golfing while his brother was dying. Sounds exactly like what the sociopath would be doing as his brother died.

    Lots of trump supporters in Wisconsin they think this is a joke

    • Well you know what they say, nothing kills a laughter faster than the sudden loss of breath.

    • Brainwashed morons. It’s that way in Waterloo too, to some extent. Stores don’t enforce the make mandate

    • Let me get my tiny violin ready for any who get Covid. But you know what — we’ll never get truthful numbers on that because the white house hijacked that info from the CDC so that they could alter the data to look good for the big fat liar.

    • msmonicacollins collins ….when they start dropping like flies, they won’t think it’s a joke. Jerk or Joke, that’s Trumps middle name

    • Breaking news, Hope Hicks got Covid. Since all staffers are usually tested and protected, she may have gotten it while rally-hopping with Donnie boy. This is serious because she’s very close to Fatboy Orange and are often in the same room.

  6. The don should go and shake everyone’s hand and thank them for their support and tell them it will all disappear and make them smile

  7. Relative who is diabetic, kidney recipient turned away from hospital ….no beds….has Covid.

  8. Awesome..a couple of superspreaders..Lucifer could not have planned it better Himself.

  9. Thank you Rachel Maddow (and crew) for your hard work, journalistic integrity and exposing with factual evidence for all to see that the Republican Party is no longer a political party/movement. It’s a criminal organization

  10. I hope and pray that many covid-19 positive people will attend his rallies. Since it’s a hoax, those deplorables will be fine.

      SUCH A NASTY COMMENT😡…what about all the younger children that are brought to those rallies…then get infected and bring it home to grandparents or other even younger siblings or school teachers and school adjunct staff?
      Maybe a “No children a under the age of 16-17 yrs old allowed” rule in the rally should be enforced?👍

  11. Guys. Stay away from crowds, wear a mask if you have to go out and wash your hands. I wish that was enough. With 40% of the people not wanting to participate out of some form of defiance, the spread will continue.

      @Truth is Freedom Florida there is no more words for you. You seem to be butting in to a conversation where your not welcome.

    • @Jake Tom Hanks is fine, he’s in Australia. He was required to quarantine for 14 days in case he’d been infected again, but now he’s filming a movie in a country that doesn’t even have the virus.

      It was 3 months after he had the virus too btw not 3 weeks! 3 weeks after getting it he was still really sick

      @Lilac Lizard it’s a really good thing that he recovered and was able to move on. It’s not like the normal flu where you get over it in a week. He was very lucky to not have long term damage. I think the reason why so many died in New York was the time of year covid hit and I can imagine there isnt a whole lot of sun going on. Hopefully people start to be more considerate of others and stop attacking others over this virus.

    • ​@Theresa Wagner yeh, there’s been a number of stories on “long covid” in the last few days. They’re saying that 3/4 of people who have been hospitalised have shown no real sign of recovery 3 months later. Scary stuff! Australia’s had very good recovery rates for non-nursing home people from the start, so Tom & Rita had the best chance (very low case numbers & staff using every case as a learning & testing situation to figure out what could be done for future patients, so absolute best possible care. Numerous over 100 year olds have recovered & been taken off ventilators & left hospital in good condition in Australia!). Nursing homes were badly hit in NY, as they were in Melbourne & in both cases, fatality rates have been 25-40% for that subgroup of people. Staff working in multiple facilities due to it being a low paying industry with irregular shifts has caused a LOT of cases!

  12. Looks like there will need to be a lot more dying before people wake up.

    • Theresa Wagner | October 1, 2020 at 1:56 AM | Reply

      People wont until they see it’s not just elderly effected. Its serious and I can tell you that for a fact. I had covid.

    • Theresa Wagner : My dad died of it, a couple of months ago. What a lot of the young survivors don’t realise is that it does lasting harm. A firefighter buddy of mine just lost her job. She thought she’d fully recovered from Covid, but the scar tissue on her lungs is up to 30%, disqualifying her from her profession. She was unreasonably glib about the whole experience, only ever toning down her remarks when I was around, out of sensitivity to the loss of my dad (wasn’t necessary), but she’s sure changed her tune now. Now she volunteers to spread info and masks with some none profit charity, or something. Trump is a Clear And Present Danger, on that topic alone. He’s also a Nazi sympathiser, but that’s by the by . . . ✌️

    • Theresa Wagner : P.S. Glad you made it, btw. It’s no joke. Hope you’ve gotten yourself fully checked out? And that you’re all clear and everything 👍

    • Pay attention | October 1, 2020 at 9:21 AM | Reply

      @Ash Roskell wow so sorry to hear that 😢 that’s a good point which has not been reported on and it’s not just the lungs it can affect most organs, I had TB when I was young I have a lot of scaring on my lungs and it affected me my whole life. They’re also not picking up the COVID virus is mutating so far it got more contagious and another strain is affecting children which is worrying as there been dying but its what a virus does

    • theyre maga tho

    Why can’t the governor of the state ban Trump rallies on the basis of being a health threat to the general public?

    • @S. H. Thank you. I’m trying. As an immunosuppressed essential worker, it’s dangerous out there. I where KN-95 masks everywhere. Doc thought I had it in June, but multiple tests were negative and I have no antibodies. The test used at University of Wisconsin has a 15% false negative rate, so we may never know. I had a fever for a day or two, dry cough for a month. Maybe it was alergies. Chest x-ray was negative for pneumonia. I do home Appliance repair services

    • @Jo S. You certainly can sue the school district and individual members.I’d call State HHS (whom Evers gave law enforcement powers) and have them arrested for reckless endangerment. Might want to check with US Attorney’s office too regarding civil rights violations. It’s against the law to ban masks. You have Constitutional right to protect yourself. OSHA and ISHA laws demand that work places protect employees (and students) from known infectious diseases and any other dangerous substances.

    • cattus lavandula | October 1, 2020 at 4:27 PM | Reply

      @Jo S. That is insane. Absolutely insane.

    • We went beyond that in Australia & would suggest you do the same, we closed state borders for full containment & then elimination state by state. Only one state left to eliminate it now, rest of the country returning to normal. There’s no reason the US couldn’t do the same – IF the leaders actually cared about their people!

    • @Jo S. Banning masks?? This can’t be true! And the two cities specifically cited as being severe virus hot spots are hosting rallies?
      Oh, well, the fewer Trump voters the better.

    Donald Trump wants to hold a rally in Green Bay, Wisconsin while at the same time warning the state about the community spread of Covid-19. How ridiculous can you get? 😤


    • @Vicki D Evers should have state troopers arrest TRUMP and staff for reckless endangerment. President has no immunity from being charged under state law. Green Bay cops or Health Dept and Brown County Sheriff and HHS has authority to make arrests also.

  15. Unlike his unwanted children, t’rump can’t just ignore the corona to make his problems go away.

    • So far he is keeping supporters by doing just that. To many, making money to pay the bills surpasses everything else – can’t blame them when state had no safety net. I’m already seeing evicted families living in cars in parks in otherwise affluent communities. Landlords, conservative judges are not enforcing Trump’s eviction ban.

    If y’all too selfish or stubborn for not wearing mask… Y’all gonna face a deadly consequences that’ll hit you.

    • Deadly consequences may not be limited to those morons; they’ll spread it to family and those of us who are wearing masks. Masks work but aren’t 100% effective unfortunately.

    “I think he’s a kook. I think he’s crazy. I think he’s unfit for office.”
    – Sen. Lindsey Graham said regarding Trump, Feb 2016

    “What concerns me about the American press is this endless, endless attempt to label the guy some kind of kook not fit to be president.”
    – Sen. Lindsey Graham said regarding Trump, Nov 2017

    What happened from February 2016 to November 2017?
    One thing that happened was Spanky McBoneSpurs had a secret unscheduled meeting with his boss, Putin.

    What did Putin tell his puppet to make all the Republicans fall in line? 🤔

    What dirty little secrets does Putin have on all these Republican traitors? 🤔

  18. trumpy is like ‘The Masque of the Red Death’, wherever he goes death follows……….just sayin’

  19. Trump is literally killing off his fanbase lmao oh well!

    • Ian McGarrett | October 1, 2020 at 5:08 AM | Reply

      I suspect the strategy behind Trump’s assault on mail in balloting is to get his supporters to vote in person on election day with the idea that he can thereby claim victory on election night before the mail in ballots have been counted. Of course that may seem to be a losing strategy when your base is too sick (or too dead) to vote on election day but, hey… this is Donald Trump… the man who managed to lose money running casinos.

  20. When confronted with this fact, trump responded: “A couple hundred more wont move the needle”
