  1. Death toll at 159 over a period of 4 months in a county with over 750,000 population. I still don’t know anyone personally that has/had the COVID-19 or died from it.

    1. Fero the reports are bogus. The hospitals are reporting erroneous coding. 100% COVID19 to get more money. Hospitals get more money the more COVIDs are reported.

      1. I heard that. If a patient gets admitted for a heart attack and then dies of the heart attack but found to have the virus even post-mortem then it is chalked up as a COVID-19 death. Fraud.

        1. Worse than that. The consultations with doctor/patient over Skype or other non-face communications, the doctor immediately diagnoses the patient as COVID-19 even WITHOUT tests. And the fools ridiculing us are supposed to be the smart demoKKKcrats.

  2. Hey El Paso, elfeo doesn’t know anybody who has Covid19 or has died from it. So, don’t pay attention to this pesky little Pandemic. Just carry on like nothing is happening. What you don’t see can’t harm you.

      1. Moron? Nah, just another Right Wing agitator. He’s more of a source of amusement. He’s more fun than doing the El Paso Times Crossword puzzle in the morning.

          1. No joke! You are always posting dumb shit. How can we not have you on our mind. Quit posting if you don’t want to be on anyone’s head, son.

        1. Notice how many mental deficient personalities alberto muerto has?
          turner and uxcrement went for their daily mental visit with a psychiatrist and were coded COVID-19. And alberto muerto thought IT was getting better.

      2. Nah. You’re the virtual moron. Just a figment of Alberto’s psycho imagination. Alberto always wanted to a play a white trailer park trash libtard.

        1. pinche xcrement, ven limpia me el culo tu si es que tienes huevos para hacerlo baboso racista. El que huele a mierda es tu pinche madre que te pario pinche demoKKKrata. Si you huel oa Rupublicano huel of flores de rosa. Tu acambio hueles al la mierda de alberto muerto. Ya caite muerto y no tes chingando a tu madre.

          1. Chupame. Pinchi Joto. Eres peor que mierda si votas por el carbon racista de Trump. Pinchi Coconut. Quitate el Nopal de la frente antes que votes Republicano. Eres una verguenza para la Raza Mexicana, sabes?

  3. Put a little mask on your imaginary little friend Alberto who is always on your mind. If he gets Covid you get it too. Tell him to vote for Trump. If he says no, make him disappear for ever.

    1. If Alberto get the virus you get it moron. You all live in his big fat mentally diseased head together. Speaking of disappear where is High420Lonesome? He must have overdosed on that nasty schwag weed he smokes.

    2. Vete much ala chingada pinchi hijo bastardo de tu pinchi madre guey. Tu eres el mas pendejo de todas personalidades del pinche puerco alberto muerto.

  4. Listen to mark, unruly children! You don’t want to grow up and become a full blown Right Wing Republican White Nationalist Racist. Do you? Well, do you?

    1. xcrement, i’m trying to decide which odious character is worse, gov cuomo, epstien or you. All three deserve the death penalty, one for putting infected people with the virus into rest homes to kill over 30,000 elderly people, epstien that molested thousands of young girls with the help of others like bill clinton or you, a dispicable xcrement belonging to the species of alberto muerto. It’s always been the demoKKKrats that are the racist. But being in denial is not going to help you with the gas chamber once the BLMers get ahold of you.

      1. You don’t deserve a death penalty, goofy. You deserve to live your useless life full of bitterness until it eats you up from inside. Un Mexicano Republicano? No te daria el sudor de mis huevos si te estuvieras muriendo se sed. Traitor inutil.

  5. Foul mouth Mexican who thinks he’s white just because he votes Republican. You can vote Republican all you want, but they’ll never accept you. To Republicans you’ll always be just a Token Mexican voter from the barrio. Andale Coconut! Te anda buscando la Migra guey!
