Trump says a lot of things, few of which are correct or accurate. Until we see a negative test result, it has to be assumed he’s still contagious.

Not a single thing Trump nor anyone in his admin says can be believed. Trump's the most dishonest politician in US history.

Glad to see Mr Trump is not spreading fear like the left wing media.

Excellent. It's great to have President Trump out and about. It's good to have that positive energy. The people respond to him because we know he's got our backs. It's a good relationahip. We feed off of each other.

President Trump has energized tens of millions of voters as the minority grouos are really listening to his message and observing ad thinking for themselves instead of goung off the media lies and they like what they see and hear because they know they can make a better life for themselves with President Trump.

Some are just too negative for society's good. Here is a positive comment from President Trump's doctor.

In a statement posted at 8:50pm on Saturday night, Trump’s personal physician Sean Conley said that President Trump meets “CDC criteria for the safe discontinuation of isolation”, “is no longer considered a transmission risk to others” and and that advanced diagnostic tests show “there is no longer evidence of actively replicating virus.

Show us a negative test. Until then, you’re asking us to trust you. Since you’re a pathological liar, I’ll pass.

12 ( +23 / -11 )

Dr. Conley is a member of the military, of which Trump is Commander-in-Chief. This means Trump can give orders to Dr. Conley, and Dr. Conley must follow those orders. We also know that Trump isn’t shy about giving orders to people that result in those people coughing up their integrity.

P. Smith, don’t forget about the NDAs.... What’s he hiding?

He is immune, in a sense- from the consequences of his own actions. Thanks to taxpayer dollars, and the latest in medical science (neither of which he’s contributed much to) he was able to get the best possible treatment. The rest of us won’t be so lucky.

Related to this article is VP Pence campaignig ahead of President Trump in Florida.

“President Donald Trump and I believe that every parent should be able to choose where their children go to school, regardless of their income and their area code,” he stated. “We’re going to fight for more school choice for four more years.”

Boggles the mind that the political left is against this. It's almost as if they are trying to keep people on the plantation or something.

They need to come clean, he recovered too quickly, seems like they were not regularly testing Trump and he was infected way before tweeting about it. I think he infected everyone personally as he is the king of no masks.

10 ( +17 / -7 )

Trump has absolutely zero credibility. And he continues to display a pattern of using the people around and under him to spread his false information. At this point all he's doing is creating further cases and setting the country up for a near civil war following the election. Trump is the biggest threat the United States has ever faced. The armed wackjobs are "standing by".

Surely the ‘threat’ to the US are the mobs committing arson and looting under the guise of ‘equality’

?

-4 ( +7 / -11 )

Trump surrounds himself with Yes men, and this includes his physicians. Until we see the evidence of a negative test, I don't believe him.

He even dictated his own health report attesting to his own "astonishingly excellent" health status in 2018

Surely the ‘threat’ to the US are the

Far right militias planning to kidnap governors in their attempts to overthrow the republic and replace it with a system of national socialism similar to Russia's.

Trump is only "immune" to the truth. He can hide in his "beautiful" self-created mental bunker, but he can't bs reality which will soon return to bite him on the b*tt, because truth will out.

Trump said in a television interview broadcast Friday night that he had been retested for the coronavirus but offered only a vague summary of the result.

You know damn well that if Trump had tested negative that he'd be yelling all about it to anyone who'd listen. So he didn't test negative.

Typhoid Mary contaminated 53 people.

The Covid Don is at 34....and counting.

I am 99% sure that he will win the election.

"It looks like I'm immune for, I don't know, maybe a long time, or maybe a short time. It could be a lifetime. Nobody really knows," 

He’s half right. He doesn’t know anything.

Hide the tax returns, hide the education transcripts, hide the negative test results, ad nauseam. Trumpoids believe only what Il Duce says, damn the evidence.

Far right militias planning to kidnap governors in their attempts to overthrow the republic and replace it with a system of national socialism similar to Russia's.

It helps to read other sources of media instead of just following the intentional lies of the political left 'media' and the intentional lies of politically left 'politicians'.

Not to mention the fact that the alt left being antifa and blm and the like actually say, along with their radical left 'politicians' that they want to fundamentally change the US which means turning it into a marxist state. Incredibly odd that the political left don't understand themselves.

At least two of the six people indicted on Thursday were not right-wing militia members, Trump supporters, or Proud Boys, as Whitmer irresponsibly represented. According to information coming out on Thursday evening, one of the ring-leaders of the plot is a leftist insurrectionist anarchist who hates President Trump. Another, Pete Musico, shares the same philosophy.

When Trump recover from mental illness ,let the world know

Hide the tax returns.

Boy, it sure would be nice if the political left would read other news sources.

The New York Times this week reported that Trump paid tens of millions of dollars, amounting to at least $66 milllion, in taxes since 2000.In taxes in seven of the years of tax returns the paper looked at Trump had tax billions in the millions thanks to the alternative minimum tax. “Mr. Trump paid alternative minimum tax in seven years between 2000 and 2017 — a total of $24.3 million, excluding refunds he received after filing. For 2015, he paid $641,931, his first payment of any federal income tax since 2010,” the New York Times reported. In Trump’s first two years in office, he filed for extensions for taxes on the prior years tax filing and paid estimated taxes on those. For 2016, he paid $1 million, according to the New York Times. The following year, Trump paid $4.2 million when he filed for an extension. When Trump eventually filed his tax returns for those years, he said his tax liability should have been $750. In other words, Trump was saying he overpaid his taxes. The Times said that Trump was able to reduce his liability by using up tax credits he had earned in connection with the renovation of the Old Post Office in Washington, D.C. The Times story also says that Trump did not get a refund for the overpayment. He just asked for credits that could be used to reduce future tax bills. In some earlier years, Trump paid even more in taxes. According to the New York Times, Trump paid $13.3 million in 2008. In 2005 and 2006, he paid a total of $56.9 million.

Have to laugh at the ABC News poll that Biden up 17 points on the coronavirus issue. 

Trump supporters here were linking to polls when his rating on handling Covid was good.

Claiming he's recovered, while swaying and unsteady like someone that's taken a dozen knocks to the head in a boxing match. Did anyone read about his Hannity interview, where he couldn't stop coughing?

Trump says a lot of things, few of which are correct or accurate. Until we see a negative test result, it has to be assumed he’s still contagious.

Why do you think that? He has had the best Doctors in the world taking care of him. I would assume his health would be better than before. It is very easy to come up with a document that says his test results are negative. Try flying all over the country and resuming campaigning with 2 hour speeches and 20 hour days. If he can do that he is definetly feeling better. This is the guideline from the CDC "The CDC is now saying that if you have mild-to-moderate Covid-19, keep yourself isolated from other people for at least 10 days after you first noticed symptoms. You can discontinue this isolation after the 10-day mark if you haven’t had a fever for at least 24 hours and your other symptoms have improved."

That must have been when the vast majority approved of his handling of corona. :D

If the widely reported stories about Trump's long-term use of Adderall are true, could it be that amphetamine residue in his body ko'd the corona virus? Steroids and speed could be the real miracle cure, not sunshine and bleach.

I vote Republican. I voted for Trump. He has a hard time telling the truth.

I have yet to be convinced that he even had COVID-19 and not just a cold. This could have been so easily manipulated to lead to a miraculous recovery and his "Superman" status.

Any news of Melania and others with their COVID-19? Surely they are all being given the same treatment that Trump allegedly had?

Randy Johnson:. The people respond to Trump because we know he's got our backs

Unless you are female. Or a minority.

Trump repeated on Sunday his past calls for states to reopen their economies even as the pandemic shows little sign of abating. New cases of COVID-19 in the United States hit a two-month high on Friday.

Trump actually said yesterday the virus was "disappearing" - which is patently false regarding the virus but does accurately sum up his reelection chances...

Nationally, the United States is reporting on average 48,000 new cases a day and coronavirus hospitalizations in the Midwest hit a record for a sixth day in a row on Saturday, according to a Reuters analysis.

Kind'a sounds similar to what he said to Woodward; "It's a killer, deadly, rips you apart, it's the plague" - and what he told the rest of America; "it's just the flu"...

Excellent. It's great to have President Trump out and about. It's good to have that positive energy. The people respond to him because we know he's got our backs

Just ask his best bud Herman Cain...

Surely the ‘threat’ to the US are the mobs committing arson and looting under the guise of ‘equality’

As a group of 16 pro-Trump far-right domestic terrorists are arrested for a plot to kidnap and kill the Governor and "Liberate Michigan", just as Trump directed...

And Captain COVID is back to his rallies, helping his supporters get to the cemetery, and beyond...

I swear the political left don't realize there are other media sources other than political left biased media.

A large percentage of the good folks at the White House rally yestetday are ethnic minorities and women who also adore President Trump. It was led by a nice young lady (can't say her name cuz jt censors it). And you can find comments and quotes from these people from conservate news websites.

It was a positive and upbeat rally consisting of all peoples of all backgrounds who all represent America who enjoy being American.

About that “miracle cure,” seems the CEO of Regeneron isn’t signing on.

For someone that is 74, obese, eats McDonalds constantly there is no way that he's "astonishingly healthy" more like he never had covid and this is just another one of his stunts.

And yeah, Team Trumps adamant refusal to answer when his last negative test was, regardless of who asked. Hannity couldn’t get anywhere on this...

he may well be ok now. Pretty sure a residual cough isn’t out of the ordinary.

But this miracle recovery complete with totally staged Mussolini style return, this is a crock of sh...stuff. Suspect they won’t answer no matter how they are pinned down by the question because if they did we would all know he was debating Biden with Covid.

Everybody at the whitehouse rally was a minority. A minority of very deluded people who for some reason still love trump.

Thankfully, as I said, it’s a minority group.

I wish that were the case. Anti-fascists come from all walks of life, some are moderate, some are conservative, some are religious, some are not. Same goes for BLM.

Of course, there are those of us who want America to be restructured into a fair society, where the people are treated equal and not under the jackboot of capitalism and fragile white egos. And of course, if threatened - it's not surprising that protesters will defend themselves.

Nope. He really is the president of the United States of America.

-6 ( +1 / -7 )

Nope. He really is the president of the United States of America.

He certainly doesn't act like one.

He's killed over 210 thousand innocents with his lies and playing down the threat of covid 19. He's personally infected dozens in his smaller gatherings, and how many thousands in his rallies.

He's told over 20 thousand lies and counting. He's almost destroyed the international standing of the US, reneged on deals that affect us all, appointed corrupt cronies and his family to positions of power.

He is a tax avoiding, draft dodging, bunker hiding, bs spewing tyrant with a fragile ego who appeals to cultists, bigots and rampant cronyism.

Readers, we ask all of you to please tone down your rhetoric, whatever your political beliefs are. Posting offensive comments like the above lowers the level of discussion. It's not even up to the level of a high school debate. We ask you all to please do better.

Well, Trump is back and and I for one am stoked about, looks good

-5 ( +2 / -7 )

Trump on the other hand has none of these, so let’s get this rally started. He’s back!

Back to infect thousands, maybe millions with his unforgiveable rhetoric and irresponsible covid commentary.

Hm, this is some interesting analysis. It's from a neutral source, so people from both sides of the aisle can learn something.
