Didn’t The Who just admit yesterday that they learned about the Chinese red death virus from the internet and not China?

Trump did the right thing by dumping the Who until they actually start doing what they’re supposed to do.

“Siegel is not a medical expert, but a researcher and engineer for the University of Missouri—Kansas City.”

There it is people, another expert from umkc school of stupidity, he claims after working out in the heat with a mask on that his blood levels dropped from 95 to 94 so there’s no reason to not wear a mask. I’m no rocket scientist but did he mean his oxygen levels?

And if you’re already fit it really shouldn’t be a big problem but for people with weaker lungs doing manual labor it sure could be. They make people do lung testing when required to wear a mask or respirator for work purposes so they don’t drop dead from wearing one.

Did any of the local Megachurches receive Covid-19 "Small Business Loans" the way the ones closely tied to Trump did?
Those "small businesses" reportedly took in hundreds of million$ of your tax dollars!

Yah, botskis, I know "fake news" - except it isn't!

Does Sen. Duckworth believe that being a veteran or having prosthetic legs shields her from political criticism? She ought to be tougher than that considering what she has gone through. Get used to it sugar, if you are going to entertain attacks against the father of this country.

Good for Trump. Another smart move!

Whats a Duckworth? Not much in my opinion. She did say negative things so she opened the door to be criticize. But good ole CNN is flaunting that load of crap.

Both Duckworth and Carlson are nothing more than entertainers.
And not really very good ones at that.
But they can both make some noise and put on a show and these days that more than good enough to get hours and even days of media coverage over pretty much nothing.
Bread and circuses.
Now let's get more opinions about public policy, history, and sociology from those scholars in professional sports.

Duckworth loved her county so much, she sacrificed her legs in service.

Cadet Bonespurs couldn't be bothered to service anything other than his small dick during his personal Vietnam of fighting VD.

After allowing Russia to put bounties on American soldiers in Afghanistan, then inviting the Taliban to Camp David to discuss our surrender; Trump and the GOP prove they love the military. Just not ours. Fucking traitors. They can all STFU.

^^^^^Duckworth is a coward who will not go back on Tucker's show to defend her views. She is a political partisan hack who lies about Trump almost as much as you do.

While you are busy cataloging your lies why don't sit down and try to figure out while we still have troops in harm's way in Afghanistan, a whole generation after our initial invasion and occupation. Trump would like to get our troops home. You want to leave them there fighting until dooms day.
