    Monumental failure is as close as Trump will ever get to MT. Rushmore

  2. Closed it down? He left everything to the governors and gave them support if they begged

    • @Miller Joseph wrong….New York, California….for example. They pushed the infected elderly into already crowded nursing homes, knowing they were the most susceptible population for covid infection…all this and there were hospitals and hospital ships mostly empty,,,, they murdered them for their deep state agenda….i’ll bet the elderly were Trump supporters

      @Cindy Morris trump cut taxes,eliminated 40,000 regulations. Booming economy. Spending money is freedom…. you want to take that away from us good hardworking people by voting democrat. Democrats want higher taxes,more regulations, less freedom, more poverty for all. Look at the inner cities. Do you want that for all Americans? You’re sick

    • absolutely right 👍

    • @Mark Mac it was DJT misinformation campaign that hurried the outbreak. Have you been researching and listening??? He even bullied the virus team to say we didnt need mask the same way he bullied and threatened to fire ppl at the NWS for disagreeing with him on the hurricane path ie sharpie gate. Im happy you choose to vote your choice. All i ask is you open your mind to the facts

  3. This fall and winter promise to be an absolute nightmare for the average american people.

    • @William H Music 2020 Alternative propaganda but keep drinking the disinfectant..

    • If you keep.a” mask/gloves ” on going out and at work .Wash hands all the time .Do not touch face .Carry sanitizer all the time wipe car down shower as soon as home .Always have I mine set about Virus..should be good..I worked threw this 40 hours a week in medical tool & implant company as Toolmaker/ Machinist..so far all good..please be safe….not easy….

      @eric hansen shut up

    • @Crystal Giddens : LOL……you’re probably the only one here, anyone wants to shut up…..you’re just one of Richie from Boston’s minions without their own functioning brain.

    • Never ending

  4. If Trump’s neighbors were asleep, and their house was on fire,
    Trump wouldn’t warn them.
    He wouldn’t want to create a panic.

    • No! He’ll just spring into action. He’ll ask the Fire Chief, “… I see where the Oxygen … knocks out the fire in a minute. Can we try that … almost like a blowing it out? Because you see, the fire’s got into the living room and is doing a number on the drapes…”
      And then, “We have just the one fire! Soon enough it’ll be close to zero. I think that’s a pretty good job we’re doing!”

    • That analogy represents an entirely different dynamic.

    • He’ll probably say why are the family sleeping when there’s a fire. He’s always blaming someone else.

    • Especially if he wanted their real estate.

    • And also wants the fire going so trumpsters can see him and Stormy Daniels…. so they can’t see


    • Mark Messick: Country boys had farms and livestock. Most people don’t, these days. But you are right, we will survive because most of us still know right from wrong. Trump is a skilled and gifted con artist who wants to be dictator for life like his heroes Putin and Kim Jung Un and even China’s XI.

    “I didnt wat to create a panic”
    ..in the stock market

    • Richard Batchelder | September 16, 2020 at 10:32 AM | Reply

      Voting Democrat would be a total disaster.!!! Hiden’ Biden and Heels-up Harris… Oh My Gawd.!!!!

    • @Ricardo Cabeza So, trump’s stock market was going down? That can’t be. What color is the sky in your world?

    • The thing is. Someone needed to ask when he knew what he told Bob Woodward. Did trump hold rallys tamping down the pandemic to hold his rallys full of unaware constituents?

      At his rallys back in January and February? If he knew. That’s just murder to get elected?

    • @Ricardo Cabeza Wrong, get your dates straight. The market was i free fall while trumpty dumpty was in full denial it didn’t start to turn around until he started making noises as if he was going to take it seriously. Of course, he never did actually take it seriously which is probably why it’s never come fully back.

    • @Richard Batchelder Voting Bone Spurs Bunker Baby already IS a disaster!!! Look around you, fool, how much worse can it get?

    still skipping whenever they show clips of trump running his mouth.. i just cant handle the bs

  8. “I didn’t down play it I up played it.” “I didn’t say what I said.” “I’m a cheerleader, not a real leader.”

      J Rivel So you want this man to be President of the United States:


    • Spot On!

    • @Ricardo Cabeza; No fool, you are mixed up.

    • Phinneas Bluster | September 16, 2020 at 1:02 PM | Reply

      J Rivel So I send you a real video of Joe Biden at a rare news conference, and you send me a highly edited left-wing propaganda hit job. Is that the best you got or can you find a video of Donald Trump doing what Joe Biden does in the video below. Let’s face it poopy pants you’re doomed. Joe Biden is in no position to debate a kindergartner let alone Donald Trump. It’s not going to be pretty especially if he gets under Donald’s skin. Well we’ll see you in 2024.
      Joe Biden today:

    • @Cynthia Neighbors no one is playing games. Why then did the democrats call trump a xenophobe for making a move in late jan? why then did nancy pelosi go to china town and say come party in china town there is nothing wrong, if they would have followed the science why did trump take action in late jan and the dems attacked him for it? you’re the one playing games not me

  9. Robert O’Brien wasn’t exactly right.
    The biggest threat to national security is Donald Trump himself.
    The coronavirus is a very close second, though.

    • Both seem to be viruses though

    • Hard Boiled Mahoney | September 16, 2020 at 9:15 AM | Reply

      ​@Ricardo Cabeza , he shut down ‘some’ travel from China. The virus came into NYC from Europe, not China. He did not shut down travel from any other countries. He did not shut down the country. What he did do what say its a Dem hoax, it will be gone like a miracle in April, its no worse than the flu. He lied, that’s all he has.

    • Religious extremists are at the top of the list; religious extremists bent on revenge for the decline of their church.

    • Stephen Slattery | September 16, 2020 at 10:43 AM | Reply

      Repeal the 22nd amendment . TRUMP ’24.. MAGA

    • @Stephen Slattery Restore E Pluribus Unum as our national motto. Put the usurpers in their place.

  10. He thinks we’re a herd of cattle ready to be slaughtered

    • @R L T also… it’s cute that your Dear Leader attacks your fellow Americans every day, but when we clap back you get on a self-righteous high horse. Hypocrite much?

    • @Alan Wood Oh Woody…why are you so sour? So sour my friend….and with a detectable inferiority complex too I might add. Hey …it will be alright.

    • @Alan Wood OMG not you again. Did you just wake up from a coma Woody? Do you have a woody? Eh?

    • @R L T Why do all you MAGAts revert to 5th grade insults when confronted with the truth?

    • @R L T I’m sour because you traitors are betraying the republic and supporting a Russian attack on our nation so that you can validate your ignorant, fearful hate of your neighbors. Below pathetic.

  11. His concern was for the economy that’s why he downplayed covid-19

    • You meam stock market

    • @HOME TEAM A country ravaged by a pandemic wont have an economic recovery until there is an health recovery

    • @HOME TEAM The stock market has been artificially inflated with public dept. That was the case before covid and is the case now.

    • Exactly Follow the money trail with Trumpster the Dumpster. He makes fun at Biden. He needs to hear his own Moronic 5 year old logic to things. Big, Beautiful, Fabulous Tremendous…those are his intelligent sophisticated vocabulary he uses. He can’t even read. He makes things up continuously. A Moron….so sad.

    • @HOME TEAM Your Orange Sphincter got help from Obama who already had the economy coming back. BTW the little people like most of us have IRA’s that still get pitiful interest rates. The banks are a joke….25¢ a month interest. It’s the Billionaires that don’t pay their share of taxes. Why do you think Trumpy is fighting tooth and nail not to show his illegal taxes from the IRS? There’s a blue print that will follow him to Putin and his dealings overseas. He needs to go to JAIL along with his ranced family. The Trumpets we’re all taught how to cheat from Grandpa Trump. New Yorkers all know about this back room thug of a family. That’s why he ran off the Florida. Good ridance

  12. The biggest scaremonger in US history doesn’t want to “panic” anyone.

  13. “Cheerleader”, we need a strong leader that protects citizens. He doesn’t know how to lead. He wants to dictate.

    • @Ricardo Cabeza yes, I’m not a fan but his performance in this pandemic when New York was hit so hard was excellent.
      He was calm, he did not need to say “we are all gonna die” as trump implies. He treated the citizens of NY with respect, told them the truth and explained them they all have a responsibility and all can contribute to bring down the infection rate and they did a really good job. In my country we had a total lockdown and I know it is not easy and it really is important that all the citizens do their best, stay at home, wear a mask and keep distance.
      New York was hit so badly! It takes a big effort in such a densely populated area to slow down the spread of an airborne virus.
      In contrast, Mr Cheeto: !I don’t take any responsibility.” “It’s the sniffles” .. “Slow the testing down please, these numbers make me look bad” and so on..
      This is a difference like day and night.
      Trumpists blame Cuomo for things that were completely out of his control and not his fault, for example that old people’s homes were badly affected. Sadly, this happened all over the globe, in my country , too, and it is very hard to avoid, but this is the nature of the virus and not the fault of a single person.

    • @Billithekat Ricardo is a tRump troll.

      Repeal the 22nd amendment. TRUMP ’24… MAGA

    • Stephen Slattery we don’t want to become n Korea; though to seem to love the idea. Let me ask a question, do you think trump swallows after blowing Kim jung un?

    • Up-Syndrome?

  14. Trump: I down play the virus on purpose
    Also Trump: I never played it down.
    Me: ever heard of a tape recording?

  15. When did he “Upplayed” AFTER he down played it?? Lord. We are SCREWED

    • Mochap 70 vote Biden Harris ! That’s our only chance to get out of this muck !

    • @M M Trump is the only choice. Socialism is the stepping stone to Communism. Biden is mentally in God’s waiting room and Heels Up Harris will be in line to destroy the country.

  16. Nero & Caligula on Trump: “Man, he’s Terrible”.

  17. Putin’s Puppet and Dence, leaders in the downfall of America.

  18. Herd mentality…thats a trump rally. Indiscriminat death.

  19. I agree 100%
    This administration is a catastrophic failure.

    Imagine how Trump would have reacted on Pearl Harbor. Imagine how he will react on any threat in the future.
