President Trumps pro actively bans travel from Communist China and Europe. Trump saves thousands of American lives. Democrats say travel ban is racist, xenophobic.

Byron Funkhouser said...

^^He claimed that is saved thousands of lives before (3:30PM Friday) it took effect (Midnight Friday).

"It's cold symptoms, y'all."

No it isn't. People don't die of the cold.

Der Fuhrer is the reason news is now considered opinion. There are facts, & there are alternative facts. "Science based" & "evidence based" must be stricken from the record. He systematically attacks the first amendment claiming "their opinions are wrong".

His network has sown confusion with wild conspiracy theories. He is not acting, he is reacting, rather late & lame, without stopping with his inane stories about how wonderful he is.

Oh looky there, der fuhrer funkyshit has spoken and you know what that means, lies, all lies. Just like a politician, whenever he opens his mouth lies come spewing out.

Give. It. Up. bLIEron.

Holding that 1st basketball game was a rally bad idea. Officials knew that statistically at least 1 person had the virus. All the fans screaming, spiting while yelling and breathing alot faster puts more virus in the air. In 12 days, there will be 200 people reporting sick. They in the meantime gave it to 400. They gave it to 1600. They gave it to 5000. They are spreading it now to 10,000. The city is finished. Cemataries will be full.
