That is awful that your sister got it that way!  Gross old lady.  My grandma at least wears a mask.  People like your mom are exactly why we need to continue to follow the guidelines.  The virus is more likely to spread through droplets in the air than touching solid surfaces, which is why masks and social distancing help.  I wish more people understood that.

Yes they are.  Just got back from the grocery store and felt like I was the only one following the arrows the right way down the aisles.  Come on, people, it's really not that difficult to follow directions!

Ugh! So gross. Glad your sister is okay.

Honestly I've offended people by keeping a distance but I don't care. Like I've been working this whole time and I'm going to keep being careful so I don't catch it.

Glad your sister is okay Steph. That is gross when people don't wear a mask and just show no regard for others.

So apparently 6 people on Trumpís team have tested positive for COVID ahead of his klandemic rally tonight. Should we start a pool on how many people will be infected as a result of this stupid rally?

Yes!  Super proud of the TikTok kids for trolling Trump.  Well done!  Let's hope all the ones who are eligible go vote in November.

Do you really think he would be elected again?  Has he got that much of a following?  I don't know anything about American politics, so not sure how it works there, but he seems such a bad leader that I'm shocked he's still in power and people would even consider voting him in again.  As for people on his team with Covid, I bet he's got them injecting disinfectant lol

No one believed he could be elected in the first place so I think itís definitely possible! And Iím sure republican states will do whatever they can to make it as difficult as possible for liberals to vote.

I can vouch for the fact that no one thought he would actually get elected in the first place.  I sure didn't.  I have lost so much faith in my country and humanity in general over the last four years.

That being said, only about half the country actually voted in 2016, so if there is better voter turnout this time, especially among young people and minorities, that should give Biden an advantage over Trump.  But like Julilly said, the Republicans will do everything in their power to prevent them from voting.

Trump does still have quite the following, and they're a frighteningly devoted bunch!  I don't understand it at all.  I wish they would all follow his advice and inject disinfectant!

I asked my dad yesterday who he's going to vote for in November.  He's always been a Republican, but he didn't vote in the last presidential election because he didn't want to vote for Trump... but also couldn't bring himself to vote for Hillary.  He said this time he's going to vote for Biden.  My grandparents, who were also longtime Republicans, became Democrats during the Obama era and find Trump despicable.  So there is hope!

I get asked this question a lot from my non American friends. We actually tried to get him out of office. He was impeached but at this point the Republican Party is so corrupt that they voted to keep him in office. I am positive he has Manila envelopes full of nasty, dark things heís holding against a lot of these people.

Trump and his cronies will do anything they can to win this election in November. Heís already claiming that the election is rigged and how mail in ballots are bad, setting the stage for some kind of uprise when he does actually lose in November. One thingís for sure, the orange hitler is not going to go quietly.

I do feel like heís going to lose. It seems like people who voted for Trump last tine, thinking that Hillary was the worst of two evils have figured out that perhaps they were wrong. Biden isnít as off putting as she was.

Trump does have a big base but thankfully theyíre also really ignorant and Iím hoping this virus will help bring their numbers down. That may seem horrible to say, but Iíve had it lol
