    YES FOLKS WE ARE ROUNDING THAT BEND, IT’S ALL A HOAX, TESTING CAUSES COVID AND DOCTORS & NURSES JUST MAKE IT UP SO THEY CAN MAKE MORE MONEY AND THAT IS HOW TRUMP FLIES. IF COVID IS A HOAX HE MUST HAVE BEEN LYING THAT HE HAD IT…SO HE COULD MAKE MORE MONEY.

    MY MOTHER IS A NURSE, SHE GETS PAID BY THE HOUR NOT BY THE PATIENT COUNT. WITH THE HOSPITAL FULL OR NEARLY EMPTY SHE MAKES THE SAME MONEY. TRUMP IS A LIAR.
