      I think what we struggle to accept is why is he still there? He’s clearly mad, Americans are dying in their thousands, the white house is a replay of the last days in Hitlers bunker, yet no-one actually *does* anything. America is a dictatorship, it’s eye-wateringly a total and utter failure.

    • The Ghost- MAGA#2020! We are the silent majority that the polls do not know we exist!

    • He is the one that could nuke the world to nothing in seconds

  2. we are literally a third world country compared to the rest of the world medical care, roads, infrastructure, education.. we belive our own propaganda mean while the rest of the world just laughs

  3. “The spray tanned drugged up Regeneron pitchman” is off the chain.

  4. Micro-managed president, trusts no one, lacking in education

  5. After cutting funding for education for 40 years…American now has an ocean of uneducated citizens. Ripe for manipulation.

      Just as planned.

      Very true… John Taylor gatto… Said it 15 years ago and he is a very reliable source…. Keep dumbing them down 🤣🤣🤣👌🏾

    • I don’t think all the lead in the water is helping either.

    • Education was just one of the cuts made. The GOP has cut or not fully funded many parts which have lowered our quality of life metrics compared to other OECD nations. They didn’t want to fund restocking the national stockpile. We don’t fund education. We don’t fund enough for infrastructure. Our electrical grid, strategic military bases housing our nuclear ballistic missiles, are operating under 1960s-70s setup. The only things funded are the Dept. of Defence, and the Dept. of Deep pockets, ie tax cuts. We’re like a household who keeps watch on the bank account, pays the Mercedes, all while the house is falling apart around us.

  6. Takes a crisis to illuminate the character of governance.

    • Not really. Quite a lot people were already aware of the lack of good governance with this administration. You would have needed to live under a rock or in blissfull ignorance to only now notice.

      All that is required to realize the trouble we have been in for decades is an open eye. For many people it takes a disaster to force their eyes open. Our govt has been brazenly dysfunctional since the late 80’s

    Even the castaways on Gilligan’s Island had enough sense to trust the professor – not the millionaire !

    Blames China, does nothing to protect Americans… vote him out.

    • BC stargazer . If what you write is true, it’s hard to figure out why you are mad at Trump. Should make things easier for you. You’ll need fewer dead people to vote.

    • S H again, you don’t dispute any facts, you just all people names. Do you have other facts to offer? Or only opinions?

      @Big Bubba where is the effective testing program? Why did they give up and push “herd immunity” (letting people get sick and die). Why does the US have 4% of the global population and 20-25% of deaths? Why does Trump encourage his followers to resist preventives and lockdowns? Why didnt Trump deploy dedicated assets? Why didnt the initiate rigorous testing when warned?

    • Everblue Freediving . Effective testing? Who do you know that needs a test and cannot get one? Share the stories with me. You know this was a new virus right? Tests for it had to be invented, then the equipment to make them made, and then the tests actually made. It was done in record time, but I’m sure you think Biden’s magic genie could have had them much sooner. Deaths in the US? You are aware that we over count right? Everyone that has Covid antibodies in an autopsy gets counted as Covid. Hospitals have incentives to diagnose deaths with Covid. Don’t take my word for it, do a simple search or to for reimbursement rates. Resist preventatives? Masks have been proven not to work. And who exactly was telling everyone that hydroxychloroquine was bad- even though it has 60 years of use already? Was that Trump? So who is resisting preventatives? Finally, I’ve no idea what you mean by dedicated assets. Explain that one for me.

      @Big Bubba WHO had a working test, we didn’t, and Team Trump opted to make our own from scratch and failed. So then Trump and Kushner meet on March 21and decide not to implement comprehensive testing so Trump could blame Dem leaders for their outbreaks… and Trump babbles “Testing causes cases…”, and “I told them to slow the testing down…” and now its “herd immunity” = let em get sick, let em die…

  9. Don’t say “a Congress”, say “the Republicans in Congress!”

  10. The whole world can’t believe that America fell for a used car salesmen 💀Putin loves this

    “I can’t breathe” will be 🍊trump’s last words. Poetic Justice

    Quality isn’t a word that should be in the same sentence as trump.

    • Dont say smart around him. I guess he doesnt understand words with more then five letters. The guy cant even formulate sentences.

    When the richest country in the world is the most infected and worst affected country in the world, LEADERSHIP is the only logical reason why we cannot control it, like almost EVERY other major country has! They didn’t use magic!!

    • Jim Battersbee | October 9, 2020 at 3:16 PM | Reply

      @P Mc
      Your “leadership” is non-existent, it’s a total failure, but you’re right about the failure of Americans society to be co-operative. It’s all those years of pushing the “every man for himself” philosophy. “Communal” is seen as some kind of commie plot. It’s sick.
      (Trump and congress apparently have been having Covid parties judging by the number of them beginning to fall.)

    • So….just to clarify….the Coronavirus was NOT due to Hilary’s emails?

    • We are the most infected country because we are the most unhealthy country.thats not the fault of the president

    • spug rich no. You are the most infected because your President said not to worry, it’s a hoax and masks are not needed, don’t social distance and he did not lead by example.
      Your level of sickness after infection is due to the level of unhealthiness and a poor healthcare system.
      Get the facts straight mate🧐

    • spug rich sounds like you need to be removed under the 25th…

  14. Trump doesn’t learn, it’s one of his issues.

    • It’s really not all the republicans..mitch McConnell , the ogre of power. He is totally madly insane with power. Plz Kentucky, get rid or him.

  15. Translation: America is the laughing stock of the planet.

    • Liar Most Learders in Other countries like trump . You have no clue whats going on in this country at all. Your hate will Get you. Do your own Research for the truth. Stop depending on the fake news. Someday they will Be Gone. Lies always get you. Look whats Its Done To Many DEMS who are sitting In Jail, Like Nancy that a Double you see >SHe is sitting in Prison Same as Chucky Nadler is serving Life. Many more are going. Wake up.

    • Only till November Chris,I can only see landslide

    • Stock an economics before people in February

    • Trump is too foolish to understand!

  16. The main problem is that Trump actually believes himself.

  17. This is not the China virus at all! It’s the ‘trump-virus.’ So, we all know who’s going to pay for it in just few weeks.

    Never trust a conservative Christian to do the right thing when the science disagrees with their absurd belief in The Imaginary Sky Daddy
