    All of this is fake news. God has sent this pandemic so that Saint Donald can prove that he is indeed The Chosen One by healing the sick and raising the dead, all while injecting himself with disinfectant and eating U.V light-bulbs… How dare you doubt the word of Saint Donald according to the Divine Teleprompter of Truth

    He has so many problems but I think the biggest mistake is his insistence of surrounding himself with “Yes Men” and not listening to his experts. Exactly the same things that got Hitler

    No more airtime or thought of this horrifying “leader”. Lets focus ONLY on the Good and community oriented projects from here forward.
    You find humor in everything so let’s forget this guy and ignore him now. Done with his tactics. Ignore the bad behavior of a child, it gets worse for a minute then disappears!

    Trump can’t legally deploy the US military inside the US. Albert Einstein said “The difference between stupidity and genius is that genius has his limits.” Trump’s stupidity has no bounds.
