Donald Trump’s Latest Coronavirus Comment Slammed As ‘So Cruel And Cynical’

Donald Trump ’s latest reported insensitive comment about COVID-19 sparked anger on Twitter Thursday, with accusations the president again has shown his contempt for Americans.


In   a video released   by the Republican Voters Against Trump group, former White House official Olivia Troye claimed the president ( a notorious germaphobe ) once said an upside of the coronavirus pandemic was that he’d no longer “have to shake hands with these disgusting people.”

“Those disgusting people are the same people that he claims to care about,” Troye said. “These are the same people still going to his rallies today who have complete faith in who he is.”


The recollection of Troye, a longtime Republican who during her time as an aide to Vice President Mike Pence  sat on the White House  coronavirus  task force, drew widespread condemnation on social media. In the same video, Troye slammed Trump’s response to the pandemic and endorsed Democratic nominee Joe Biden in the 2020 election.


Trump last month   callously dismissed   the soaring death toll from the crisis, telling Jonathan Swan of Axios that “ it is what it is .”

“When a former top Pence staffer goes on the record to say that Trump described *his own supporters* as ‘disgusting people’ ― it becomes even more credible than it already was that he referred to America’s war dead as ‘losers’ and ‘suckers,’” tweeted David Frum, a speechwriter for former President   George W. Bush .

Carol Giacomo , a member of The New York Times’ editorial board, described Trump’s comment as “so cruel and cynical.”

trump doesn't give a shit about his supporters.  Just like his comments that he was not in danger of getting Co-Vid because the stage was so far away at his most recent 'rally'.  Not a word about the supporters being in danger of getting Co-Vid.

 upside of the corona virus pandemic was that he’d no longer “have to shake hands with these disgusting people.

To all the Trump supporters here and we know who you are, do you still think he is the greatest thing since sliced bread?  If you do after this, then HRC was more than justified to coin the term deplorables.

Trumps' followers at his rallies are nothing but props for him. 

Does anyone remember ''old what's his name'' oh yeah, Herman Cain.
