      1. I don’t watch Fox news. I do my own research and I make my conclusions based on FACTS from multiple sources. I’m not a sheep like most liberals who don’t even know what they are protesting or rioting against. They just take their Soros cash and start throwing bricks.

    1. Your idea of holding China accountable is soooooo unattainable that it would be difficult to explain to you. Trump says everything his low IQ base wants to hear and does nothing.

  1. How is *holding China accountable* going to rid the world of the Virus? Oh, yeah Tariff the hell out of the China economy so we can pay more for Chinese imports. How about breaking off Diplomatic relations. Invade China? Get real! No matter what the US, or any other country does it will not help wipe out the virus. AND stop listening to Fauci? After all he is the foremost scientific expert in the field of Infectious Disease. Instead listen to the Covid deniers who after they get sick blame the masks for getting sick. Please use your common sense instead of your political affiliation for a ineffective political novice.

    1. It has nothing to do with my political affiliation. Just saying to put blame where it belongs. China knows more about this virus than anyone. They released it. Getting rid of Trump won’t solve the problem. Biden’s Brain is already Jell-o. He certainly can’t solve it. He can hardly tie his own shoes these days. Fauci hasn’t treated patients in decades. He’s more of a political figure now that a doctor. He’s not listening to the doctors in the field who are successfully treating patients every day. He’s worst than these University Ph’D’s who have lived in Academia for decades and only know THEORY but know nothing about the actual practices in the field. If masks work, why aren’t they working? Why did 15 days to stop the spread become 200 days? Both Fauci “theories”.

      1. I’ll take Biden’s jello brain over trump. Nothing will change my mind. I’ll vote for anyone but trump. When he goes I hope all his followers go too.

        1. You’re the only one. Even the Democrats are concerned about his steep mental decline over the past months. He won’t be the nominee come November.

        2. Gaffy Biden will be in an Alzheimers nursing home well before the election. President Trump will win. You can move to Venezuela moron. “President Trump’s Rasmussen approval rating hit 51% on Monday”.

          1. Fero2a don’t forget no one likes you anymore. To be specific, white people with your rhetoric are outcasts. So YOU can move out of our country! Otherwise assimilate and stfu! Shhhhhhhh!!!!

          1. And you have none. Reason for repeating same things every day. Mouth just moving on Instincts.

      2. Maga’s brainwashing is worse than anybody ever thought. What theories are you ever talking about? You catch the damn virus and you die! Anybody’s uncle can tell you that, no theory, no experiment to back the theory, just plain medical facts. Why is it hard to understand that you need to slap a damn mask on your face and keep you distance? It is not Rocket Science! Just like all other Red Mad Hatters you will rather die of the virus than admit your faulty thinking. Remind you of anyone? Hint–he is at the White House trying to figure out how badly he went wrong.

        1. Wrong. El Paso 15,000 cases. 270 deaths. 98% plus DO NOT DIE. Some of them who died wore masks all day, everyday yet still died. Hmmmmm. How can that happen?

          1. And social distanced and used hand sanitizer. Must have got it through the ears. Ear muffs anyone? LMAO.

          2. 2% here and 2% there and you have almost 160k dead! Trying to convince the Maga Hatters to wear a mask is like trying to break the Speed Of Light. No matter how hard we try, it is not going to happen. The problem is that you are putting other people at risk with your infected breath. Just let me know when you are going out to the store without a mask so I can upload your Tantrum on YouTube.

          3. Original maga you knew those who died and followed them around all day to make sure they wore their masks? Lol. Wow.

  2. Maga Mad Hatters just keep getting Curiouser and Curiouser living with Trump in Wonderland. Take your Reality pills and come back to Earth. You have been away far too long.
