North Carolina caps outdoor gatherings at 50 people to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus, but don't tell that to President Donald Trump. He basked in a largely maskless crowd of several thousand supporters during a Tuesday rally 

Yeah, people are getting fed up with being told not to gather unless you're going to protest and riot.

As Biden gave a speech last week focused on the Trump administration’s response to the coronavirus at a university building in Pittsburgh, a crowd of more than 100 gathered 

Wow, more than 100! Hey, isn't that against no gatherings of more than 50 people? C'mon, man!

Don't be fooled by Trump's huge crowds and Biden's very small crowds, Biden is ahead in the polls!

“I really miss being able to, you know, grab hands and shake hands," Biden recently told supporters. "You can’t do that now.”

I bet that's not all he misses.

Interesting comment by Allan Lichtman:

Speaking about the pandemic: “This is the greatest dereliction of duty in the history of the U.S. presidency,” Allan Lichtman, a professor of history at American University for nearly 50 years, told CTV News Channel on Thursday.

Actually Professor Lichtman predicted that then candidate Trump would win the 2016 election. He has been teaching at American University and has been accurate 100%. All hits, no misses

CTV News is Canadian.

Trump won't be satisfied until he's Herman Cained all his supporters.

Low blow, but typical from the left. Let's remember that Caine was already diagnosed with stage 4 cancer and either way he was going to expire, but yeah, blaming it on Trump would seem the easier thing to do.

Either way we are all going to expire. Are there any other groups of people who you would like to give a push towards the grave? Who else can we sacrifice for political gain? Old people seem to of this right wing list, as do diabetics. You probably have a few more though.

By not acting earlier, Trump contributed to about 100,000 extra deaths so far.

Lock him up.

He's wrong. Trump gets an A + for his coronavirus response.

Trump shut down travel fro China Jan. 31. Biden disapproved. Oops.

Cuomo killed thousands by moving corona positive patients into nursing homes. Lock him up.

Incompetence versus competence. Enough said.

Wow, look at the people in that photo. That says it all.

Wow, look at the people in that photo. That says it all.

Yep. Positive, patriotic people. Ain't it great!

Incompetence versus competence

Getting more done for the American people in 3 years despite all the opposition than Biden did in nearly 50 years is incompetence?

Biden is competent? Letting his handlers choose Kamala Harris to be his VP, which means the first female U.S. president would be unelected? Plus she's awful.

Comical to see bone spurs selling patriotism like a pimp. His virtue-signaling flag hugging was a real low.

A total fraud.

By not acting earlier, Trump contributed to about 100,000 extra deaths so far.

Lock him up.

More deaths than the wars in Vietnam, Lebanon, Grenada, 2 with Libya, Panama, 3 with Iraq, Somalia, 2 (more?) in Haiti, and elsewhere - put together.

The dictator Saddam Hussein murdered about that many Iraqis during his time in power. The genocidal Bosnia War took nearly that many Muslim lives in the Serb concentration camps.

Trump is guilty of murder as well as every other crime you can think of. He has blood on his hands and in his eyes. he doesn't care. He's evil. He's an Antichrist.

LOCK HIM UP IN PRISON NOW!!!!

"I love the poorly educated." -- Donald Trump, 2016

“We hold these truths to be self-evident. All men and women created … by the — you know — you know the thing.” - Joe Biden, 2020

"Well, one of the things that will be really great, you know, the word experience is still good. I always say talent is more important than experience. I've always said that. But the word experience is a very important word. It’s a very important meaning. I never did this before—I never slept over in Washington. I was in Washington I think 17 times, all of the sudden, I'm the president of the United States. You know the story, I'm riding down Pennsylvania Avenue with our First Lady and I say, 'This is great.' But I didn't know very many people in Washington, it wasn't my thing. I was from Manhattan, from New York. Now I know everybody. And I have great people in the administration. You make some mistakes, like you know an idiot like Bolton, all he wanted to do is drop bombs on everybody. You don't have to drop bombs on everybody. You don't have to kill people." - Trump 2020

I hope you're not looking to get into a tit-for-tat on incoherence between Trump and Biden. I'll still be posting Trump's incoherent statements for months after you run out of Biden's.
