Couple a million more and it will be bad enough to interrupt MB's gym schedule..... maybe.

I guess we will never know what would have happened if Trump had ordered the military to get involved. I remember hearing somewhere that the military WILL NOT obey an illegal order. Furthermore, if the president insisted, they (the military), have the authority to arrest/detail him.

True/False?

Capitalism is why we have so many dead. Trump is just the embodiment of it.

And after all this time, people are STILL not listening to the CDC experts. Don't or can't learn? Then blame Trump. At least you will feel smug and satisfied.

Look dork, we know who made people think the CDC was lying to them. Turns out he was lying to everyone.

Now that most normal intelligent people know that we are still learning about this virus after a year and a half later, we know that noone knew much about it back then.
As the months went by, we learned (well the wise and normal ones) to listen to the experts, NOT any politicians.
Because the normal people know how politicized this disease has become.

It was politicized by Trump and the Republicans not by the Democrats who wanted us to listen to the scientists. Don't even now try to rewrite the history of this disease because that would be politicizing the disease just as your side has done all along. You're still Phester, we all know who you are. Don't even try to deny who you are now that 900,000 people are dead because your President, Donald Trump, actively tried to discourage people from following the directions of the CDC.

Danni, Trump wanted flights out of China shut down. Dems called him a racist. Joe Biden said on his front page on joepiden.com that his first priority in fighting the COVID was to combat racism.

So shut the hell up. I was there, I saw that. I remember it.

Like I wasn't there? He also ridiculed the idea of masks, ridiculed Dr. Fauci. Remember when he said "it will just go away?" If you were there why don't you remember that? I sort of think you have a selective memory, you only remember that which will support your belief system which is very distorted and anti-sceince. You are a constant embarrassment to your parents.

Of course we would be just like we still do about the Vietnam WAr and the Iraq invasion. Republicans do, generally, like to diminish the body count because they don't want to take responsibility for anything. Donald Trump totally denied any responsibility for the death tool from COVID19 and his idiot supporters let him get away with that because they are a cult. Jim Jones only difference from Trump....popularity.

No you don't. You remember the false narrative that was fed to you.

Trump didn't shut down FLIGHTS from China, he shut down CHINESE NATIONALS from coming to the US from only China. No restrictions through other countries. No restrictions on anybody other than Chinese nationals.

Meanwhile US citizens were returning from China and were greeted by under-equipped, untrained personnel and, later on, were rushing home through several major international airports before travel was shut overall. Without warning to local agencies. Without proper crowd control and screening.

So take your own advice. Shut the hell up. You were there but you didn't see ----.

What about the loons with their "Medical Exemption from wearing a mask" card that's complete --------? Or the loons claiming masks are taking away their rights? Or the governor stomping all over private property rights by forbidding businesses in their state from requiring vaccination as a condition for entry?

Talk about LOL dam fool. SMDH.

There's been a mysterious rise in 'pneumonia' deaths in red states, like Florida, who didn't want their COVID deaths reported accurately so they'd look better and could 'open it up!' (the economy)

And what did you learn about listening to politicians who muzzled experts and hid their findings from the public?

What did you learn about politicians who hid getting vaccinated from the public?

YOu mean when he "shut down flights" then allowed 50,000 more poeple to fly here from china, or they could fly to another country and then to here?

Shutting down flights doesn't work in a pandemic, but dumb people love it because it sounds like a simple solution that doesn't require more work or thought. Just like "build the wall"

If they would've been healthier and drank bleach like I told them to, they wouldn't have died.

When tens of thousands of people arrived in America via airports after the ban was announced, they didn't even have temperature checks at the airports! Not like it wasn't known COVID causes fever.

Trump mismanagement = millions of sick & dead people

The Party of Trump has officially lost all sense of reality and responsibility.

Trumpy is responsible and still needs to be held accountable.

Nothing will change until he is.

Specifically... Nothing will change in the GOP.

However, Biden is making great strides in restoring balance and equity and the pride of being American.

In spite of Trumpy and his hateful minions.

We are still learning the extent of your denial.

Over a year ago, AmericanUnity posted the Imperial College Report which estimated 1.1 - 2.2 million deaths in USA by the time the pandemic is over.

For those that don't, I'm sure we could find someone willing to pay whatever it would take to get them into a non-capitalist country.

Which at this juncture in history is Cuba or North Korea.
