  • It looks like this Coronavirus is the end of the world. Every day more people become infected. Never remembered anything this serious. Can't find sanitizer anywhere. People are charging $50.00 dollars & up for it which is crazy. People are trying to make a profit off of the Coronavirus. They look to profit off of any kind of tragedy...Kobe Bryant...The World Trade Center, etc.

  • Breaking news - Trump's moving his Vice Poodle Mike Pence from Virus control to head up The Department of Forest Raking starting tomorrow. Here is a copy of his leaked speech - I'm making Jared Kushner the head of the Contras virus, seeing he's brought peace to the Middle Yeast. My special advisor Ivanka, who's doing an amazing job by the way, told me Jared is super qualified as he's already watched the movie Contagion twice this week. He also fixed Ivanka's dishwasher, which by the way many experts on cleaning dishes, our best people, have told me the dishwasher had a very bad virus, and like the Middle Yeast the dishwasher runs like a charm now. I've instructed Jared to bring in the heads of Norton, and McAFee and many other heads to the White House to find a high tech solution to the problem. Many people, a lot of people, very special people, some people almost as smart and stable as me but without the great hair. These people have told me 'April comes after March', so we won't have to worry about the current Contras virus in China soon. I know more about this virus than the World Heath Organization. Which not very many people or a lot of people know was started by Doctor WHO from the BBC which stands for British Bacterial Care. See this is not a new virus, that's fake news, the Contras Virus first appeared and infected many of the socialist Bernie Sandersnista in Nicaraguan, and also there was a small outbreak in the Italian or Iranian city of Marla Naples back in the Eighties.
