President Trump is scheduled to leave office at noon Jan. 20. He has had an extraordinary impact on the United States and Indiana and will leave behind a deeply divided nation.

The 2020 election was basically a referendum on … him. As his presidency draws to a close, let’s take a dispassionate look at the metrics of his impacts:

Over 350,000 Americans dead from Covid while Trump host a mask less event at his place going against his own pandemic response team force..I mean farce... was it worth it? To be a super spreader event that people could die from? For what Vanilla Ice? The president has not and does not care about America. 16 days left till a fresh start and delete this abomination

Joe the parrot at it again and again.

Joe King

And there you have it...typical trump response....deny, deny, deny, then go after the messenger....instead of defending the action...because they can't....delusional just like trump to the end....where he will be removed crying and yelling....all before jail... he just attempted to commit voter fraud...on tape, for an hour....deny, deny, deny.....lock him up!

sidearm

Who will be the subject of your rage and anger when he is gone for 4 years Joe? Seek some help for your own good.

Joe King

Sidearm, probably the next public criminal if I had to guess...too many people... ahem .... support this criminal...even now after he was caught on tape trying to commit voter fraud...the silence from you and others against this speak volumes... never has one man done more damage to this country and what moral and democratic standing we had left... He actually thinks he won....he is delusional...the 25th amendment should be used to lock him up...

sidearm

Same thing different day from Joe. Please seek help.

G-lo

Dear “Sidearm”, Please take your own advice. You and other Trump disciples are the ones that truly need to seek help.

Yep Joe! Trump ain't a scientist. Just the person that started a fire under the scientific world and the drug companies to get a vaccine produced, put in trials, ok'd and distributed. The states must take it from there. Please find the quote of Trump saying 20 million would be vaccinated before years end! You keep telling us he said that! Where is the statement with the little quotation marks? Factcheck can't find it! Politifact either. And NO! Snopes either! And really joe! What IS a "looser"? I'm guessing one who loosens??

And that took 30 seconds to find. Trump loosing by 7,000,000 votes makes him a looser to biden. Science did this, not trump. He still doesn't believe in science and scientist and data... Hopefully when Biden comes in the distribution and numbers start to go down with competent people in charge...and not the "my pillow guy".....

As I said and stated before. You have a thing for the "my pillow" guy"! C'mon joe it's losing NOT loosing. Please! I can't follow you joe! Are you talking about the election or the covid campaign. Jumping back and forth shows a concentration problem. Happy New Year! Enjoy! I will !

Blame the states Joe.it is their job. We are a democratic republic, at least until we become a socialist banana republic. You jealous of Mike Lindel? You seem to be obsessed with him. Oh and you lose your voice and you loosen your tie. Does that make it easier for you?

Joe King

The federal government is responsible for the distribution. You know, the national pandemic response, faced by pence, acted by trump...even that failed...like everything he touches...20 days left!

Joe King

He says Trump is suppose to leave January 20th at noon. I disagree....Trump has already checked out. He is more interested in spreading lies and sewing contempt over is 7,000,000+ votes lost to Biden. He hasn't done anything about the Pandemic and truing to gt Americans to wear masks and practice safe distancing, and instead goes golfing in Florida...again... while millions loose their benefits and safeguards... Trump is already gone...Maybe Pence should step up for the last 24 days....ha....sorry...that was funny...

Tired and tried joe. People are "loosing" and I have no idea how much "truing" Trump can do! Untold millions and millions of tons of masks, face shields and gowns have been manufactured. He is "truing"! Remember when the New York Times said it could be years before a vaccine! As of 12/27/2020 2.1 million citizens in the US have been vaccinated! (NEW YORK TIMES)! 33,000 Hoosiers have been vaccinated before Christmas! Oh! And the New York Times printed a graph the Sunday Review provided. No distribution until November 2033. Really Joe?

Joe King

Thanks to Science and not trump we have a vaccine. What about the 20 million that could be vaccinated by the end of December 2020 according to trump? And we are only at 2.1 Million....while millions of doses of the vaccine sit in warehouses...Is that winning? This administration has failed the public with over 336,000 Americans that have died... And still they hold parties and flout basic health restrictions... He is too worries about being a "looser" of an election than whats best for America....

sidearm

Well Howie, he had 75 million people vote for him in 2020. The Washington post wouldn’t know a lie if it bit them in the you know what. it will be interesting to read your weekly tripe about Biden’s performance in the coming 4 years or however long it takes the Dems to have him removed from office.
