    Don’t let these stockholmed Trump supporters flip this around. Hold everyone around you accountable for supporting his nonsense. Pence is out lying about it as well. Don’t let them do this.

    If we hit 6 figure deaths Trump needs to be executed on the WH lawn. Bet he’d get some great ratings for that! There is no way hitting those numbers couldn’t have been prevented if Trump hadn’t spent months of inactivity and downplaying this..

    Trump stood in front of the chart because he didn’t want it getting more attention than him.

    The brain of a 5-year old can project better than Trump’s. Dwindling education standards, high gun crime – America is truly turning into a gatorade nation. I am (thankfully) not American, and watch with sadness as they go down the slippery slope. A pity.

    Depending on the age of the virus and who was the latest infected host (person) will define the virus strength and new infected host possibility of survival. Without identifying the initial host you will not be able to stop the outbreak; vulnerable to the virus to runs it course. The infected hostesses (people) must be treated in closed areas and away from the general public or face higher national inflection and higher fatalities.

    A brilliant satirical monologue on the “world renowned idiot”, dopey trump. And Seth, what is up with the display of the 1977 ‘The Thorn Birds’? I dare you to put on display the holy bible – I am sure the hannity and the trump would have a lot to say about that! 😀😀😀
