    Honestly. Stuff like universal healthcare and housing and the like should be expected of a 1ST WORLD COUNTRY that anyone with a Shred of empathy would want and be okay with. We just live in such an awful country that’s so skewed and devoid of compassion that basic human rights/freedoms seem like a radical left conspiracy.

  39. tainopr777 Reply

    Oh pls any president would have done the same in front of the public! Do u think that any other president knowing that some impending danger is coming they going to make it worse by scaring the public! He didn’t handle it well but at the same time I don’t think anyone else would have. This is something that hasn’t happened in a hundred years! Also he admitted that there’s racism here and no prop for that! They will twist it to make it bad!

  40. April Jones-Foston Reply

    “I put the ban on China” .. No, there was a RESTRICTION which allowed 40,000 persons to still travel to U.S.A. Meanwhile, the U.K. was surging and there was no travel restrictions, no bans. The China travel “restrictions” were NOT enough in itself.

  41. IG ENG Reply

    Nightly News casting it’s lot with CNN and other untrustworthy news outlets. They’re being incredibly dishonest acting like they don’t understand what Trump was saying about downplaying COVID. They know full well that he was trying to keep people from panicking, just as they know he took the precaution of closing our borders to danger zones while Biden and the rest called him racist and xenophobic for doing it. I hope they aren’t fooling people with this narrative. That’s all it is, a story to try to take Trump down, because they know their catastrophic failures just keep piling up on them. Every day for the Dems is a Hail Mary, just tossing up lobs and hoping the people catch it. It’s only going to get worse after the debates start.

  42. Philip Lazlo Attorney at Large Reply

    Help me out with American Law. If someone’s actions, or lack of action cause a death… or 200,000 deaths, is that person not guilty of Murder to some degree? Maybe “Felony Murder” as hundreds of thousands of people died during the commission of other crimes. Trumps crimes. Lying to the American people while holding a position of trust. Placing the wellbeing of Americans behind his self serving personal interests.

  48. Charlie Brown Reply

    So downplaying something isn’t lying. We know he can’t read or pronounce words now we know he doesn’t understand when 2 words mean the same thing. This caused many deaths. Instead of down playing, Trump , why not work together with the rest of the country and Congress to really set up a plan to knock out the Coronavirus. Then we can all get on with our lives.

  49. Peter Bruno Reply

    So Trump is on tape saying the virus is very deadly and spreads through the air. He said his comments that the virus wasn’t that bad were meant to prevent panic. Shouldn’t his supporters now be taking it seriously? They are still saying the virus is fake, isn’t that the same as calling Trump a liar?

  50. Charlie Brown Reply

    If Trump stays in office, America cannot move forward. There will be another shut down. A great depression and homeless camps. Trump doesn’t consider a thousand people a day dying is too bad. Why, because he knew it was going to happen. It is what it is, Trumps favorite quote.

    Making foreign countries interferes in American elections big news is a joke. I would be more worried if they weren’t. They always interfere in American politics. And always will.
    Fake news NBC will spin it like Iran is working with China and Russia to attack bidens campaign because these 3 countries love Donald Trump. Lol and some of you seniors will believe their spin on things. I had A 86 year old man tell me straight to my face that Donald Trump was born in Russia. That crazy old 😳 man lost his mind i also thought he was wearing an adult diaper. Perhaps the same type as Joe Biden. Sleepy joe was at kamala’s house with a pair of knee pads he is collecting from her for hiring her as v.p. I would collect now to since when trump wins again kamala seems like the type to not pay her debts.

    Sheep will follow one Sheppard, they will listen, believe, and obey without question. You believe Trump is the enemy? Yet not once have you questioned the news, your new god tells you anything it wants and you believe it. Look at our world. One man doesn’t have the power to do that, the people do. Your hate for Trump has directed you in foolish acts. We are our own worst enemy these days. We are no longer men and women, for we act like hopeless children

    You believe Biden is not capable of lying? Everyone lies given the right curcumstance. The news has become your God, it tells you all you want to know and you never question it. Mankind is doomed and has been for some time. We leave the responsibility of this country into one man’s hands, doesn’t matter if it’s Trump or Biden, yet “we the people” do nothing while our world burns. We deserved to be lied to, we act like sheep, helpless and emotional. These days were predicted long ago, a time when men and women would lose themselves.

    I hope that this time cities have learned how dangerous these wildfires are. I hope that people will come up with personal/family plans that if there is a fire coming that families have evacuation plans and practice these plans on a monthly basis.

    Oh my gosh! The wildfire’s in the Western area make’s one want to run into a wall. It’s so devastating! Very scary and sad! This fall’s into one of the categories of the “Return Of Jesus”, Earthquakes and other natural disaster’s! It is stated that the disciple’s were made aware of the many sign’s of “the end time’s” by Jesus! Something or some entity created us and can end matter’s as it see’s fit! In the meantime, it’s best to get our affairs in order!

    People burning masks? Is that what they do in their free time? If I was a parent, you better wear every last one of those masks thoroughly before setting them alight.

    Or, just don’t burn them and give the masks to those that deserve them more. Who would be that wasteful and malicious, they’re basically watching their money burn for a shallow feeling of accomplishment. No one’s impressed.

    So now we have millions of young asymptomatic college students who are going to be spreading the virus to each other and then leaving schools and spreading it back to their parents and their communities because we just had to go ahead and send kids back to school in person.
    So I can’t eat at a restaurant, but I can sit in a lecture hall or in a classroom and somehow, that’s safe?
