    Around Feb. 7th, Trump sent 17.8 TONS of PPE, personal protective gear, which was the stockpile left by Obama’s Pandemic Response Team that Trump disbanded and defunded. As expected, Trump now blames Obama for the shortage of supplies for American hospitals, doctors, and nurses that the Trump himself gave away. He’s blaming yet another one of his screwups on Obama.

    I see the liar in chief has fired another guy for doing his job honestly. He only wants “yes men” and ass kissers around him. The only reason he hasn’t fired Fauci is that the repugs in congress have told he can’t, until this pandemic is over.

    You know who this f*** is talking about don’t you? By ‘we’ he means the greedy corrupt rich Republicrooks, who, having created another huge disaster, are now running to their yachts, Swiss chalets, and yachts, and leaving it for the rest of to clean up, and sacrificing us to the altar of their f***ing greed. Time to march, everybody.

    Mexico is to provide for its citizens and we r to provide for ours. Its up to the individual to decide what country they want to hold their citizenship. Cant have one foot in one country and one in another and get benefits from both. That needs to stop.

    Pelosi is dangerous to this country. She hates Trump and she would do anything against this country to ruin him. Vote Trump 2020 and she will be GONE!

    Nancy and Chuck are the dangerous ones during this crisis and adding non virus demands to the bills. They don’t care about the American People, just their pork item’s. They need to be voted out of Congress.

      Move to their districts and vote against them if you want them out. There’s no other way, and apparently the voters in their districts like them.
