But wait, according to Donald Trump, we're 'rounding the corner' on Covid.

He couldn't be lying, could he?

The United States is approaching a record for the number of new daily coronavirus cases

While Trump says the country's 'rounding the corner'.

The most dishonest politician in US history holding rallies, i.e. more superspreader events where his faithful followers risk getting Covid45.

And many won't even have any health insurance.

Unlike Trump and his fellow 'elite'.

David Vanes and PTownsend said it already!

D.T. said it was going away (wonder where to).

He said there's a turning point (wonder which direction)

Said "we're rounding the corner" (how can that be done?)

Said, said, said ... too much talking and little to no action.

That's all what this man stands for!

Hospitals in crisis? Just call Don! He'll tell you not to get tired of winning because "we're rounding the turn" (just don't tell Covid!).

trump’s round the bend.

Even as the health-care situation worsened in northern Idaho, a regional health board voted to repeal a local mask mandate. It acted moments after hearing how the Kootenai Health hospital in Couer d’Alene had reached 99% capacity.

You've just heard that one of your major hospitals is reaching capacity because of the spread of the virus, so you repeal one of the few measures available to you to slow down that spread. An almost literally unbelievable decision. Along with many of its authorities and its legislators, the US is just coming unglued.

The state is experiencing its largest coronavirus spike since the pandemic began, with new cases increasing statewide by 46.5% percent over the past two weeks. Gov. Brad Little, a Republican, has declined to take steps such as requiring masks statewide to slow the virus’ spread.

Sad and all too predictable.

Can't recall his me right now, but a medical professor from Princeton did make the remark that more people have died from influenza this year than COVID. Influenza data, which could give much needed perspective to these continuous alarmist articles, has certainly been suppressed during this time.

My factual comment will probably be deleted anyway...

There are always "some hospitals" in crisis for one reason or another ...

Our hospital is not built for a pandemic

But it was built for making a profit. Thoughts and prayers.

Making Americans wear a mask is a lost cause all we can do is watch them crash and burn. They believe in lies and delusions.

The most dishonest politician in US history

No, that would be the Democrats not allowing people to work, the lockdowns have been more destructive than almost the pandemic and the implications will be long lasting unless you want to riot, then it’s ok to flood the streets.

holding rallies, i.e. more superspreader events where his faithful followers risk getting Covid45.

And mostly recovering now thanks to the science and therapeutics.

And many won't even have any health insurance.

Even with the ACA a lot of people couldn’t afford the high cost premiums

Unlike Trump and his fellow 'elite'.

As well as every single congressman...including Democrats.

@agentX

Go to the CDC website and learn that in the 2019-20 flu season there were between 39-56,000 deaths in the US. So far Corona has killed 220,000.

He couldn't be lying, could he?

No way Trump never lies. What happened to the bike, did you sell it?

Making Americans wear a mask is a lost cause all we can do is watch them crash and burn. 

COVID-19 was supposed to be China’s Chernobyl. It’s ended up looking like the US’s Waterloo.

According to the Johns Hopkins coronavirus tracker, America has suffered 65.74 COVID deaths per 100,000 people, or about 216,000 total. China has lost 0.34 per 100,000, or about 4,750 people. All we can do is console ourselves and say don’t trust China’s numbers

Your comment would have much more credibility if you could remember his "me".

Best to present facts rather than half-remembered remarks from an unnamed source before complaining your ‘factual comment’ will be deleted.

So much for the CDC. In Japan, we don't a CDC and oh boy how people screamed. You right we don't have a CDC. We have the best health care and the best political leadership in the world.

I thought Trump said everything was getting better? Did he lie?

“Rounding the corner.”

Yeah, sure Donald. Sure.

Most of us do bring opposing viewpoints and facts and then they still some get deleted because when liberals bring forth or their facts they can stand. Best is for both sides to bring their facts and people can decide, that would be a debate and a healthy one at that, if not, then you just want a one sided opinionated viewpoint, goes across ever topic, take your pick.

I was commenting on a post which presented a half-remembered remark from an unnamed source as a ‘fact’.

It’s like when I ask you for the names of the non-partisan historians who you claim regard Bush 2 as a success. I’d like to read them as I’d like to read the unnamed professor who said that flu is more deadly at the moment.

I also asked you for your sources which inform your views on Covid. You replied with an opinion piece from a tabloid.

I’m all for reading an opposing view - I make a point of reading more against my views than for them. It’s just that unnamed professors, unnamed historians and opinion pieces from tabloids don’t really cut it for me.

He says that the vaccine will be ready in a few weeks. This is not the first time, of course. He's previously said the vaccine will be ready by the elections.

And the light at the end of the tunnel, is the light of the oncoming train...

The seven-day rolling average for new daily COVID-19 cases in the U.S. surpassed 61,140 Thursday, compared with 44,647 two weeks ago. The record was reached July 22 when the rolling average was 67,293 in the midst of a summer outbreak driven largely by surges of the virus in Florida, Texas, Arizona and California.

The U.S. recorded 71,671 new cases Thursday, with several states setting records across the Midwest and West.

And our President either had the gall or the stupidity to go on live television last night and say we were "rounding the corner" and the virus would "disappear"....

The only thing that has disappeared is Donald's brain - what little he had - and those of his cultish supporters who believe every lie that emanates from his mouth...

Jim Jones ver 2.0...

More children have died this year, in the United States, than COVID 19

Stop the virtue signalling and panic for 30 mins and listen to 3 scholars tall sensibly about the subject...
