    CNN and the Democratic party would love nothing more that to keep our entire economy permanently shut down and for us to stay in our houses forever so they can finally set in motion a permanent welfare state where nobody works, nobody goes to school, nobody does anything that involves even the most basic form of human contact. NEWSFLASH: CNN! The Coronavirus is here to stay on this planet possibly forever. We're just going to have to learn to live with it just as we've to live and normalize thousands of other viruses throughout the centuries. We can't fear going outside in perpetuity. People are going to die regardless from something. I'm sorry to say but that's life. Wasn't it FDR who was a very liberal president who said and I quote; "the only thing we need to fear is fear itself"?

    Every one of you out there who is praying for a speedy recovery for Trump are actually praying for the slaughter of 10’s of thousands more Americans. If this selfish, self-centered bastard (Trump) recovers – and thinks he has Covid immunity – he’ll be much worse than ever before. Instead of just working to stop efforts to slow the spread – he will begin working to hasten the spread. He’ll point to his own recovery and say “See! It was nothing!” and he’ll encourage people to host and attend Covid parties. We know the only thing he cares about is himself – and once he figures he’s got “immunity”, he wont give a shit about how the virus ravages the rest of the country.
    So you guys who are praying for his recovery are praying for the deaths of friends and family members and hundreds of thousands of more innocent Americans.
    Me? I’m praying for the outcome that will save the most American lives…. sorry Donald – but you’ve only got yourself to blame for your current predicament. Just like the 200,000+ families that have lost a loved one to Covid – they’ve only got you to blame also!!!

    The Trump team's snafu with the virus/exposure/incompetence this week is a perfect analogy for what he did to the whole country; ignore science, ignore professionals, let the disease spread like wildfire, then beg for sympathy and deflect blame.

    Indifference and callousness for all the workers in the world. We deserve the truth.

    Please stop using that "leader of the free world" rhetoric. It's not even true for the US itself, so using it for Trump is even worse. Most powerful, sure. But leader of the free world, it couldn't be further from the truth. Sincerely, the rest of the free world.
