Please, listen to them. They have been right and you have been wrong. Oh so wrong. You couldn’t have done more damage with this virus if you tried. Go back to playing golf and let the real leaders and experts handle this. We all want the country to reopen. But, we need to do it in a manner that isn’t going to cause a resurgence and set us backwards. May 11, 2020 at 2:19 pm craig cornell says: Hot debate. What do you think? 7 14Free tip: when you say untrue things about some subjects, no one is convinced by anything you say. The UV light idea is being tested at Cedars Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles. When he mentioned disinfectants as a concept, it was following a 5 minute presentation by a scientist who mentioned the effectiveness of . . . disinfectants (something the media doesn’t tell goofballs who hate Trump). When he mentioned getting rid of the task force, he gave a reason. Do you mention it? Of course not. You are a partisan clown. The IHME model that you Lefty’s love has been modified about 5 times and radically so. Do you mention that? No, you blame Trump. I could go on, but GOLF!

Like or Dislike: 29 12No kidding. Despicable human being who only cares about himself. Now he said he doesn’t want too many tests because he doesn’t want us to look bad? WTF? Hey Tramp, we already look bad. Other countries are laughing at us. People want to be tested. I try every week and keep getting denied. Give us the tests and that will actually facilitate the country reopening faster. We know you take one every day while millions are wondering when is their opportunity. You said anyone who needs a test gets a test. And the tests are beautiful and perfect. C’mon man! May 8, 2020 at 1:25 pm reality bites says: Hot debate. What do you think? 17 9I suppose there is no profit margin in reality. Maybe the rapidly-opening states should declare moral “bankruptcy”. But at least we will have millions of ventilators ready for the next wave, with huge testing capabilities, while manufacturers of literally everything start using all their capital to build new plants here in ‘Merrikuh so we don’t have to rely upon forriners for our medicines etc. May 8, 2020 at 1:28 pm Interested says: Hot debate. What do you think? 14 23I still prefer freedom over fear. We are all going to die, of something or some way, some time. Protect those most vulnerable, stay home when sick, wash your hands, live your life. It is short and we are all going to die some day. May 8, 2020 at 1:33 pm Captain Planet says: Well-loved.

The majority of American society does not care to spread deadly disease. It’s not about fear, it’s about being responsible and a good steward to our American brothers and sisters. You okay with giving this to someone who will eventually die from it? You basically killed them and you’re okay with that? May 8, 2020 at 2:57 pm Common Sense says: Hot debate. What do you think? 12 1566% of all cases in NY were after the orders to stay home. That Progressive model didn’t work out so well. Cuomo was sending sick elderly back to Nursing home to infect and kill more elderly. He should be brought up on charges and prosecuted. May 8, 2020 at 3:26 pm Will says: Well-loved. Like or Dislike: 14 3A lot of people in NY city live in apartments. Common entrances and elevators along with an easily transmittable virus virtually guarantee spread even with stay at home orders. So just going out for a walk or groceries was enough to spread the virus. And then of course, did people in NY listen, probably not based on the news that I saw. So how do you blame Cuomo. China issued orders that forbade people from crossing the threshold of their own apartments. An approach not acceptable in the US.

That’s what real leadership looks like!

What do you think? 10 10I love the Faux Newz Cuomo talking points. They are so fantastic. Okay, so if Cuomo should be prosecuted then Tramp should be executed? Because, Tramp has way more blood on his hands than Cuomo. He told people to go to work if they felt ill, that it will pass. He told us he had it under control. He has lied about this virus all along. And you are going to talk about Cuomo. You just can’t accept the fact that Cuomo actually responded while Tramp groaned and moaned at his Mad Hatters conventions. May 8, 2020 at 8:47 pm Captain Planet says: Like or Dislike: 11 8Agent wrote, “66% of all cases in NY were after the orders to stay home.” The health experts have said had Tramp responded 2 weeks earlier, you know, during that time he was shrugging it off and playing golf, 90% of deaths could have been avoided. Had he responded just 1 week earlier, 60% of deaths could have been avoided. How ’bout them percentages, huh Agent? May 8, 2020 at 11:12 pm Captain Planet says: Hot debate. What do you think? 17 8“Trump, who is seeking a second term in a November election, has staked his re-election bid on the strength of a U.S. economy…” The key statement in all of this. He cares more about covering his arse to win the re-election than he does the health of the people he swore an oath to.

Do you think Obama will go to jail now? May 11, 2020 at 3:13 pm Jon says: Like or Dislike: 10 5LOL literally all you do is quote opinions of clowns except you do it as if they’re fact, Craig. Keep whining about Obama and Cuomo, the country sees exactly what Trump and the idiots (like you) that follow him have done to the country. See you in November! Number one in COVID deaths and infections! May 13, 2020 at 6:21 pm Jon says: Like or Dislike: 5 0Prove any of it. Is your president responsible for the deaths of 80,000 americans?
