Dear fake dr. Rex, evidence also proves that allowing the riots to go unchecked by mayor mckneely and you turning a blind eye to everything has given us over 5000 new cases since the riots. It’s too late now to come out and start harping on the people who have been doing the right things all along. Why weren’t you down there making people wear masks? Why didn’t you come out and condemn them for not wearing masks? Why hasn’t the covid express toy train and the busses been shut down?

Put the blame squarely on you, the mayor, the clowncil who by the way stood by and did nothing to calm the situation, you all failed to protect and serve the taxpayers you swore to protect.

Japan had a signed pact with Hitler. Its too bad we didnt have the chance to nuke the Germans, in Berlin. But at least we showed the Japanese the error of starting a war, as its always possible to lose a war and get nuked!

Mexico also signed a pact with Hitler, that when Hitler invaded the USA, Mexico would push up from Mexico border across the Texas border and be "rewarded with lands". The Mexicans actually would have ended up in Hitler's new extermination camps in Texas. Mexico lost a grand total of 14 to 60 people in WWII. Thats for the whole war!

@ 8:24 - I believe that you have a very good grasp of the situation. Joe and the rest of the geriatric democrats used Social Security as their personal slush fund to cover up running the government at a deficit for decades. Now he is worried that Trump is going to destroy it? I call bullshit on that lie. If you vote for Joe you aren't American!
