About 6 months ago my cholesterol was 240 and within 6 months I brought it down 51 points naturally. It is now 189. I had to since I get severe cramps from Cholesterol meds.

    As predicted...America Topped 100,000 Coronovirus cases

    Trump now says he doesn't have to abide by the oversight provided by the Investor General and Trump says he will NOT treat this as mandatory. why? Does he wants to give our money to his friends and also his dearly beloved failing Mar-A Lago and his hotels instead of helping Americans. Sure lets all die for money...insanity!!!!!

    Trump said he will not talk to the governors of Washington State and Michigan. Trump is preventing states from buying equipment and says if governors don't treat him nicely they wont get a call from him. Trump says he’s willing to help blue-state governors who are struggling to contain coronavirus outbreaks — but only if they’re willing to stop criticizing him in exchange.

    Trump also told Fox News on Tuesday, referring to Democratic governors, adding that “they shouldn’t be hitting us. That man is a nutcase.

    Trump has told people he wants Americans to see his signature on the stimulus checks that will be sent out after he signed a $2.2 trillion coronavirus relief package into law. He wants applause.

    State and local officials have ordered more than 100 million Americans nationwide to stay home, businesses to close and public events to shut down, but Florida governor DeSantis refuses to order people to stay home.

    We have "do nothings" in our government while American families and children just might be the next fatality. I honestly believe that if America was under attack Trump would retreat to the White House Bomb shelter and tell everyone to go F' themselves and say it's not so bad and it will all go away soon!

    I just don't know how anyone could support this idiot or vote for him. The man who doesn't care who dies for the Trump economy. Seems when your dead your money will not do any good.

    Trump is someone who can't handle advice, thinks he knows everything, and when he f__ks up, which is most of the time, can't handle criticism in any form. He is the worst example of a human being; a person who thinks he knows everything but knows nothing.

    His mishandling of such an important life and death situation is a reminder of how incapable and irresponsible this self centered maniac is.

    The coronavirus is as dangerous an enemy as anything we as a society have ever fought.

    But even more dangerous, is having someone in charge who has no idea what he's doing, won't take any advice, is completely incapable of managing a national health crisis, won't listen to the top medical experts and scientists, lies everyday to the public, and keeps telling us all that HE HAS A HUNCH that by Easter Sunday, he will relax the rules and allow people to go back to work to open up the economy.

    In fact he made the dumbest irresponsible remark I think I ever heard saying that on Easter, all the churches will be filled and everything will be fine. Gee I would love to see what church his wife and family will be attending on that day.

    He is living in fantasy land and comments like these only endanger the lives of every American. He's only interested in the economy and his re-election. Don't think for one minute that he cares about anything or anyone else. This guy is a prime candidate for a psychiatrist and a straight jacket. We need to also envoke the 25th Amendment and have him removed for reasons of INSANITY.

    Trump said that he wants to wind down "social distancing" and reopen the U.S. economy after his 15-day strategy to slow the spread of the virus ends next week. "I would love to have it opened up and just raring to go by Easter," he told a Fox News "virtual town hall."

    Trump's desire to get the U.S. economy up and running soon.... runs the risk of backfiring and making things even worse. A call by the president for a return to normal could lead to undermine the efforts of those municipalities to contain the coronavirus contagion.

    Resumption of activity leads to a bigger spike in virus cases -- as some health experts fear -- that would just end up making the recession deeper and longer.

    Weeks were wasted and Trump has flunked as a leader. Trump would rather save the economy than our lives.

    More people have died this week in the USA than those in the Afagan war. Science tells us this will be everyone's reality tells us we will have more infections than in Italy.

    If you have visited Mar-A-Lago know this...visitors to the club have tested positive for coronavirus, according to CNN.

    Donald Trump wouldn't know the truth if he tripped over it. For three weeks he has been telling us that the tests are there; are coming; are available. Yet, we know they are not. People are being turned away!!!!

    We know our hospitals and hospital workers have not been provided necessary equipment to fight this virus. We know he is not working with the governors of many states. We know our president is nothing but a over blown used car salesman, and not a very good one at that. He has blindly lied to us and lead this country into a healthcare and economic crisis. He is directly responsible for the government's failure to respond in a timely and reasonable manner. Trump's treatment of Coronavirus as another "unfair hoax", was self-serving, ignorant & delayed for his personal reasons far beyond blatant criminality. This country can not afford for our leaders to stall fighting this pandemic while they contemplate how to prosper off of it.

    Trump squandered weeks in which he scoffed at the coronavirus and tried to talk up the stock markets. He is the guy who said just a week ago that the “coronavirus is no worse than the flu”... He says anyone can walk in and get a test for the virus, although there is a shortage of test kits available.

    He became president by lying; he is serving as president by lying; and he is likely to be re-elected by lying. Why should he tell the truth if lying serves him so well?

    This should be a wake-up call, especially for Republicans. This is reality. The Florida Department of Health this Sunday morning confirmed 39 new coronavirus cases in the state of Florida.

    Almost 3,000 coronavirus cases have been confirmed in the U.S. Globally, more than 150,000 cases and almost 6,000 deaths have been reported.

    For our president to turn down the offer of test kits by the World Health Organization weeks ago, America is way behind the curve fighting this global pandemic. The moron does not care who dies!!!! More concern for political optics than for the health and well being of our citizens is a reprehensible travesty that will cost countless of lives and hopefully Trump his presidency. Trump is trying to downplay numbers in the USA so he can win votes.

    At this writing we have only tested 2000 people. South Korea, for example, is testing 10,000 people per day. The blame lies only one place; with the president and his sycophant, boot-licking, lying enablers, trying to avoid the wrath of one of his toxic Tweets should they do the right thing and expose his gross, self-serving incompetence!

    Stay safe and take this seriously!
