Trump knew back in January how bad covid19 was and lied. He called it a hoax, he said the flu was worse, he said it would magically disappear....He lied, almost 200,000 Amercians have died and yet, they still support him....I now feel sorry for the supporters and pity them.

I think he wanted to do what sweeden did & let it roll through ..

Sweedens daily.deatg rate is to 0

Your comments don't match the facts. Sweden’s per capita death rate was 35 per 100,000 as of May 15. Meanwhile, Denmark’s death rate was 9.3 per 100,000, Finland’s 5.2 and Norway’s 4.7. All three neighboring countries enacted stricter policies. For comparison, the United States had 24 COVID-19 deaths per 100,000 as of May 15.


You want a ride on my boat Joe? You pity us, how comical. We are doing our best to live our lives while you hide (like your hero Biden) and fear monger every day. Must be a real boring life, hope you enjoy the parade.

I doubt the parade will happen....I think it will be spectacular watching the covidiots running their boat.... but I doubt it will happen... I mean, Trump is all about law and order right? I am sure this will be a legal event...if and when it ever happens...


Why are you using May 15 figures Joe. Almost 4 months old. I don’t know the current death rates but I am sure you do. Why don’t you use them? They don’t fit your agenda?

Joe King

The point wasn't the date, but the fact their death rates were much,much higher than other Scandinavian countries. And, Sweden did admit they screwed up and started practicing covid restrictions later on. Numbers don't mater to think it is a hoax right? Or are you trying to lie like Trump and hide the truth? Like he knew at the end of January, and didn't want the markets to panic? pathetic...
