He doesn't get it. Facebook and Twitter both announced that they have very recently taken down false and misleading comments about the pandemic from Mr. Trump.

The hardest way to learn is by making your own mistakes. Smart people learn from other's mistakes. And some people never learn, no matter what.

He doesn't get it.

Precisely. Trump says "he gets it" then proceeds to show the world in every other thing he says that in fact he doesn't "get it".

Look as he prods the mask into the pocket. Hardy face. Laurel grimace. Sophistication of a toad.

He doesn't 'get it' and he's utterly pretty vacant. And he don't care! Ignore this phony.

March 2020.

TRUMP: I like this stuff. I really get it… every one of these doctors said, ‘how do you know so much about this?’ Maybe I have a natural ability.

Judging from the theatrics at the WH, he gets NOTHING. Wheezing and gasping for breath, with his neck bursting out of his collar. He even suggested he was now immune. Christ almighty.

Nice goose-stepping in that fourth photo.

COVID 209,000 Trump One. For Trump that is winning.

Of course he got it. He understands well what is going on, especially when even he and his wife are affected by COVID. That’s why he is making that show and plays it down. Do you have the slightest imagination how societies and economies in the U.S and everywhere else would look like if he would tell the full truth and even relevant staff at hospitals, logistics, military, police, firefighting etc. all would stay at home, fearfully shivering in isolation? It is dangerous, it even endangers some famous people , actors, riches, presidents, but he can’t tell the truth as it is his job to keep the country or if you like the whole world continue running.

The world is running fine, thank you, without Trump, or should I say, in spite of Trump.

Other world leaders seem to be able to explain the truth about the virus to their citizens, so why can't Americans be trusted with the truth?

Trump's inability to tell the truth has been the hallmark of not just his term in office, but his entire life.

'Christ almighty' indeed. You know he says he's the 'Chosen One', the Messish don'cha? He's just an egotistic poser, a pretender, a peacock strutting his tail openly.

Pathetic and disgusting to the max. Notice he's goose stepping with a mask on now, after denying CoVid-19 was ever a problem or that it even existed at all. Jerk!

209.000 innocents have now die because of the "trump" virus.

I think that any capable critical thinker can assess that something is very very wrong with President Trump. I am a Republican and I am baffled why my party continues to go to extreme efforts to cover for and support an individual that clearly is, at least, not up to the job and, at worst, is criminally compromised by entanglements with one or more of our adversaries.

My only hope is that Donald Trump, his appointees, Congressional boot-lickers and the policies they advocate do to the Republican Party on a national scale what Pete Wilson and Proposition 187 did to the Republican Party in California. If that happens then something good will have come out of the last almost 4 years.

200,000 in U.S. have died from virus. Now Trump says he 'gets it'

Hundreds of thousands more would be dead if Trump hadn't shut down travel from China Jan. 31, which Biden would not have done which is obvious if you read his tweets.

In six months, more Americans have died than in all the wars since 1945 - 209K American is half the total of fours years of fighting during WW II....

And what does this administration do? Ignores and violates their own CDC guidelines and holds a super-spreader event that just potentially adds to that total...

Face it Trump supporters - this race is OVER. Trump couldn't even protect himself and his wife...

He's done - prepare yourself now for the upcoming indictments on bank/tax fraud and the illegal payoff...

Obviously he doesn't because the image he is portraying is that it's ok to go about your daily business if you're infected. What a tool.

He said he now “understands” the virus. 

So back in Feb and Mar, when he told Woodward on tape that the virus was "a killer", "deadly", "rips you apart", "like the plague" - you were lying and didn't understand it?

We all "understand" Mr President - we understand you deliberately lied and mislead the pubic on how dangerous the virus was, then violated your own CDC's safety recommendations and held an event that infected as of now at least 35 people, to include your wife...

We understand you are utterly and completely incompetent, and a true danger to our country...
