Farmers whine all the time, they even whine when they have a good year. Shows what having too much idle time does for you.

He may have said that he was "hopeful the pandemic would end soon", but what he meant was that he was hopeful the Trump Administration's activities to damage this Country would end soon.

Nobody guessed in 2016 how much damage Trump would actually do to rural America. He has been an absolute disaster.

Lost markets, cratering crop prices, bankruptcies, suicides - just unreal.

Even Trump's Ag Secretary joked about two farmers talking in a basement being a whine cellar.

Trump's people are laughing at the hard times thinking they can't lose the rural vote. It's one thing to take those voters for granted, but it's another to openly mock them and think they can get away with it.

I suppose you morons still want all our goods including 100% of penicillin imported from....CHINA. Trump was trying to stop that to get America a better deal when the Kenyan simply didn't care.

The Kenyan? Wow.

Trump failures are so epic, the MAGA people are only left with going back to the birth certificate hoax. Sad. Actually, pathetic.
