    A vote for either Trump or Biden is essentially a vote against Kanye.

    The PCR test can't even differentiate between the Normal Coronavirus that people usually get and Covid-19. PCR testing is useless. Epidemiologists from around the world have been saying for months that it's a useless test. What are we going to do, test people for the rest of our lives? No, because you are always going to get positive cases which are 95% false positive. We know people who tested positive a week ago and all they have is no sense of smell. I'm still praying that's all they experience. As time goes on and the virus spreads it becomes weaker and weaker just like the normal Human-Coronavirus.

    Why Americans don't want to get the experience from China for fighting the covid virus? China can test 9 million people in few days. It is Shame to be Americans, American politicians are all liers….

    Just scare tactics. The 2019 flu season was more deadly then Covid in 2020. Numbers are cooked – no cause of deaths all year except Covid. Just lies
