  1. Isn’t it odd, that this virus effects people so differently? Some healthy people in their 20’s get it and die where as some in their 60’s or older get it and barely knew they had it.

  2. Remember this, Joe Biden?
    Remember how you and your administration screwed up the swine flu pandemic? It went about as well as those shovel ready jobs you were in charge of creating but didn’t. And now, you have all the answers, as President Trump and his administration, working with our pharmaceutical companies, are rolling out tens of millions of doses of vaccines within 10-months of the China virus hitting our shores. Nobody believed it could be done, including Fauci. But Trump said it would be done, and it was done. It’s damn near a miracle. And an untold number of lives are being saved. So, why don’t you go back to your basement, with your mask on of course, and shut up.
