    The whole reason nobody believes Covid is real is because the media lies 24/7 about everything. They lied about Mike brown having his hands up, lied about Trayvon just eating Skittles, lied about Jussie Smallet getting attacked by the Klan, lied about the Covington kids harassing an Indian, lied about Bubba Wallace finding a noose, lied about George Floyd not resisting, lied about Russia getting Trump elected, lied about Kavanah, lied about Global Warming flooding the earth by 2020, lied about not being able to afford a $10B border wall, lied about Hillary having a 90% chance of winning.. all left leaning political lies. Plus you had all the doctors come out and say its fine if you gather in large groups as long as you're protesting on behalf of the Black Lives Matter organization.

    all news now are about trump. this is the best shit that could had happened to trump’s campaign. I think it is all a hoax.

    1. It's not a surprise at all given his idiotic behavior.
    2. There is no evidence for gods so 'god speed' is useless.
    3. I'm happy that Trump got this and is feeling sick. Hopefully he will wake up and become a better person. On the other hand, if he were not on the world stage, many problems could be solved.

    Hebrews 4:13– And there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are open and laid bare to the eyes of Him with whom we have to do.

    Luke 12:2- “But there is nothing covered up that will not be revealed, and hidden that will not be known.

    Psalm 139:7- Where can I go from Your Spirit? Or where can I flee from Your presence?

    Proverbs 15:3- The eyes of the Lord are in every place, Watching the evil and the good.

    Proverbs 20:27– The spirit of man is the lamp of the Lord, Searching all the innermost parts of his being.

    You cannot hide from the Spirit of God


    Satan cannot hide if he is inside of you

    Enough,, I’m sick of hearing all these reporters on CNN 😤😠🙄and it’s Kaitlyn Collins right now and she’s just so against Donald Trump, she’s just dying to say that he needs oxygen and he’s not as well as he says he feels . she’s just trying to say that he is suffering very bad and lying . give me a break he’s strong and he’s gonna feel better fast
    Sure if you need an oxygen , oh well it doesn’t mean that he’s dying he’s doing good he’s strong and he’s going to come out of this stronger than ever ! I know I work in Health Care in a Hospital.

    Round them all up, infected and not infected that had any sort of contact, from far and near with the orange man. Send them all to an internment camp someplace n the desert and let them breathe on each other. It can be a survival of the fittest Covid fest.
