    1. But reverse the reopening and shut it all down. Fire Governor Abbott. So face masks and social distancing not working. You can only cry wolf for so long.

  1. Masks and social distancing is proven to NOT be working day after day. The good news is immunity keeps increasing which is the way it’s suppose to work.

    1. Though this pandemic is serious, it is not as deadly as the propaganda networks portray it. It is being politicized by NBC/CNN. Come November 4th, it will suddenly not be as bad, mark my words.

      1. After President Trump’s reelection on November 3 the leftist media will be too busy trying to abolish the electoral college and convince the electors to go rogue again. Same process when crooked Hillary lost. Wash, rinse and repeat.

  2. Trump re elected? Turn on the laugh track. And let it run for a full hour. Trump will be lucky to get his old job back on The Apprentice. But probably not. The TV networks won’t want to touch him with a Republican ten foot pole. Feel sorry for you boys who still think Trump will be fit to be president a second time around. Come on man, get real!

  3. After Biden beats your Trump like a red-headed child, Trump will go back to New York where the Feds will be wanting some explanation for all tax irregularities that they find. And there will be plenty. Tax cheater, pussy grabbing, lying ass moron has a chance in hell of holding on to the presidency. But keep dreaming boys. You only have 4 months before your dream and Americas nightmare is over. Welcome President Biden! Bye bye Johnny.
