  1. Your as Bias as the rest of Dumocrats. So you think that it’s Trumps fought the virus is here or that the cases has risen. Trump Rules for 5 more years so get used to the orange god. We MAGA people are more everyday.

    • LOL, as they say.

      Again, total numbers are meaningless; percentages are a fairer comparison. The Death Rate in Spain is truly shocking; we are nowhere near that.

      If President Trump is not re-elected, I’m not much comforted know that each morning I’ll wake up and wonder if Uncle Joe has stuck his oatmeal in his eye socket instead of his mouth.

  2. Sadly, this nation tends to stick with Presidents during tough times.; hell, we re-elected Bush.

    So, we think that the DIC will be re-elected much to our chagrin. But as you so eloquently point out, the apparent contender is a dolt, we agree.

    Where there is hope, in our eyes, is to eradicate the oldsters in the legislature and open the doors t o visionaries with ethical viewpoints and integrity.

    Then again, with the same executive leadership for four more years, that may be all it takes to have the entire American experiment in governance disappear completely.

  3. NY governor Andrew Cuomo would be a far better choice for the Democrats to run against DIC.

    I hope all MAGA’s are able to write comments in proper English. If one is to Rave On, it would be helpful to understand what is written. rather than having to spend extra minutes trying to interpret what was written. Let’s Make America’s English Great Again!

  4. The headline tells us that we are now the leaders in people with the novel coronavirus. Funny, I don’t hear anybody chanting the familiar “USA! USA! USA!
