Biden is the best man at this moment and at this time

The GOP Wants Death from COVID.

Remove Trump if we wish to live.

“He told us to learn to live with it, but what he really was asking is for us to learn to die from it” is a solid line.

Good for him. My little community is just now starting to realize the seriousness of this. Our school district is one percent away from going to a hybrid type of education. Our Republican Governor and Republican Senator has set up this ridiculousness and the numbers are overwhelming.

Trump and his enablers need to go away forever.

Keep it up Joe! Trump etal are betting that denying the virus is on the rise, cutting your health care and insisting (all stats to the contrary) that they CAN’T do anything to control it and they NEVER COULD…all the while superspreaders are out infecting you with both the virus and misinformation!

For 8 years the Republicans declared Obama was trying to be an emperor, and now they don’t recognize the one in their midst.

Just like the old saying: “if at first you don’t succeed (or don’t even bother trying), quit.”
It’s just too hard and there’s no easy way for Trump to earn money off it.

I think it’s just terrible that Sleepy Joe is using the Trump administration’s own words against Our Favorite President. I mean, what kind of a monster does something like that?!

The moral decay of the Trump administration is stunning.

Maybe it’s time to throw some metrics out there, with the WH throwing up their hands and claiming that COVID just cannot be controlled. Well then, how is it that some countries are doing such a great job controlling it?

Deaths per 1,000,000 population:
USA - 696 (10th worst worldwide)
Germany - 121 (USA is 5.75 times worse)
Japan - 14 (USA is 49.7 times worse)

Sorry Trump Admin, it’s pretty obvious that your claim is bullshit. It’s not that COVID can’t be controlled, it’s just that you’ve done a tragically horrible job controlling it.

Oh, and if you thought Meadows is a major fuckhead concerning the virus, you’ve apparently forgotten that Rand Paul always has to get into the act, too!

I think it’s about time for that Socialist Ceramic Garden Gnome to crush Rand Paul’s balls again.

Our Republican governor is campaigning on how he’s dedicated to protecting and serving the people of MO, like he has done his whole life. His actions have included allowing 6 rural hospitals to close, throwing 100,000 off Medicaid, and asking people to be careful, then he and his wife contracted COVID because he wouldn’t institute a mask mandate. And outstate MO is now filling up St. Louis and KC hospitals with their sick.

The Trump administration had morals?

The early voting is heartening. We need to step it up even more. The GOP expect to dominate the Election Day Vote.

We must match them, and then some.

Then Joe can assume the reins. There is a big difference between an incumbent and a challenger. Trump is the worst human being ever in the Oval Office, but he knows incumbency and his Bluster uses that when he can.

One thing that will scare him will be the mountains of Americans voting for this aforesaid challenger and against him in Early Voting…Keeps him and his babysitters scared.

We have a failure in defining morals. Just think if every person in the US adopted Trump’s morals?
