Big Ten, Pac-12 postpone college football season due to coronavirus concerns

The Big Ten becomes the first Power Five conference to cancel its fall sports seasons due to the pandemic, despite calls from President Trump to allow college football to continue.

Given the $ to clean up CHOP and fake impeachment’s and riot garbage leave behind, $600k is quite a bargain yes? Happy 4th!! Worth every penny!!! 🇺🇸 Good! We deserve it! Thank you!! POTUS How much has the looting cost? Money well spent! How much will ALL of the BLM Riots Damage Cost 😉 Are you sure this wasnt MrBeast

Still cheaper than all the Libtards spending. At least this is for all of us Americans MAGA TRUMP2020 Asked for by no one Since when the left care about costs? Wait!! We tax payers just spent $600K on fireworks? How many free blackcats did we get? fuck yea. should of spent 600 million and pissed the libs off even more. GOD BLESS AMERICA

Cheaper than Obama vacation’s Chump change for the US government. The same politicians complaining are the same loading up every bill with unrelated pork barrel spending. What a bargain. I thought it would be more. Worth every penny. Glad my tax dollars are being put to good use. MAGA !! It was worth it.

Who cares Well worth it People supporting this are just so stupid. This man is destroying America! He's is allowing people to die and couldn't care less. He has alienated leaders of most other countries. The world is laughing at the once great United States because of him. Open your eyes! Corona gawn get they ass...only time I hope they do get it! Lawd 4Give me😆

And worth it! Land of Scammers!!! yall broke af and got shit to spend money on so many useless shit Classy Waste of money Not that bad! At least he didn’t have a 60k hotdog party like Obama did! “Hotdogs” Pity they didn’t tie him to one of the fireworks and set America free from this racist dictator.... Oh geez a billionaire wasting money instead of helping the need

Should have been $1M!!! Go big or go home! This is America!!! would have been nice to get more than one check... 600k? Harvey uses that much a year in toilet paper cause of the shit that comes out his mouth. Charles you crazy too. That’s literally nothing! It’s to celebrate your countries Freedom but I guess all Liberals would have prefer the Confederates have won the Civil war since apparently it’s a problem to celebrate a free country now. Ps. Obama spent more on state dinners!!

A drop in the bucket compared to the money needed to Fox what was burned, looted and destroyed by your cronies That’s all!? Wow, I was thinking over a million minimum! Well worth it!! God, I hope a bomb is sent that way Please! The rioters and looters are costing us billions. For 600k at least we get to enjoy some works.

But you’ll love them Oh so like maybe 6-10 citizens worth of school debt?!? Yea makes perfect sense! How much in damage by the looters and rioters? Not bad since he has collected his salary as president in over 3 years Less than what we pay on medical, food, and housing illegals. In Kentucky it cost $225,000 to move a statue 100 miles so talk about wasteful

That’s 5% of what the Democrats have spent trying to impeach him. Every police vehicle destroyed in the “protests” average $80k each. Guess where I would rather see money go 😏 stopthehypocrisy Obama gave $150,000,000,000 to Iran. TMZ should stick to doing rapper PR. Why don’t they use police funding for this?

So Obama blew that on funding his terrorest foundation for one day Stocks like this, hell yeah!!!!! Go Trump!!!! Greatest country in the history of the world. 🇺🇸🇺🇸 Send the tab to Sleepy Joe he will think he’s signing his grocery bill! 😝 is socialist propaganda and God bless the 🇺🇸 USA 🇺🇸 So? He better be paying for it. realDonaldTrump asshole

At least it’s spent on fireworks and not little boys It’s funny how you tweet the cost of celebrating Fourth of July, but you don’t tweet the cost of destruction from protestors and vandalism. Some cities are looking at $500 million in destruction. Where is the tweet on that That money 💰 is literally going up in smoke 🚬 instead of helping Americans in this time of need

Unlike TMZ patriots like Trump appreciate its core values Money well spent. God Bless America! That is the cost every year as long as we have been celebrating piss off Sooooo, who’s paying for that? He sure knows how to spend other people's money wastefully. Macys firework show in NY has cost 6,000,000. Shows are expensive. What is your point?

I sent in 100 dollars to help pay the cost. Can’t wait!!! Beautiful I wonder how much the riots cost🤔 I Will stay home and vote bye mail.and injoy life.God help us. *spuck* What? Sounds awesome That can't be right. It's a couple million just for the fly over alone. He is so desperate to have a positive rally he is doing at Mr. Rushmore, with fireworks, free chewing baccy, bbq, Schlitz Malt liquor and guns.

Make sure he pays upfront God Bless America. Appears based on comments that We are all down with a Huge ass party for America’s birthday!! ❤️🇺🇸🎉 About the cost of a trip Michelle Obama made to China. BEST PRESIDENT EVER!! 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸 Televise it and it makes mad cash yo! If the aliens were to come to earth and destroy it, they need to go here first and take up all the idiots who attend. Then, make their way around the UnitedStates for the rest of the idiots. And leave everyone who’s taking COVIDー19 seriously, alone!

Sounds like a bargain I like the idea of celebrating America!! But I guess the media would rather us watch protesters burning buildings & historical monuments. Money well spent Big deal how much they cost. It is a shame it’s all one sided yet again. How much you think it cost us citizens that pay taxes, to clean up after all the riots & protests across this country How much did it cost taxpayers to pay for the bullshit impeachment proceedings?

He should have spent a million! Wish I was there Well spent Good Likes to spend money that’s not his. & how much does cleaning up after the riots cost? The property damage? Considering the money he's made FOR America he could spend billions and no one would care. I figured it would be more gonna be a great show to watch on tv. usa

Good!!! I hope it is the best ever!!!! Blasting over a defaced mountain top 600k. It’s all our money. Those 13 hr Amazon drivers paid, those nurses working w/COVID patients, pd, single moms holding it dwn, pd, us retirees, pd, flt attendants flying five days straight 4 flts a day, pd. Taxpayers paying for a campaign ad... what a country.

Although I don’t like seeing my tax dollars being wasted by anyone.. did we do this for every single trip done by previous presidents? This seems tiresome 세상의 문제보다 더 중요한 자신의 구원을 돌아볼 때입니다. ✳거듭난 삶으로 메시아의 오심을 준비해야합니다. 📢 All for less than the cost of a burned down Autozone !! And more lives because of realDonaldTrump not giving a damn about anyone .. also in an area that usually bans fireworks because of fire risks. TrumpDictatorship TrumpIsUnwell

So? Better than $65,000 on Hot Dogs and Pizza like Obama did. Dang! I would love to be there! Thanks for sharing ♥️♥️♥️ Bargain ✅ 🇺🇸 USA USA USA 🇺🇸 👊👍👏🏻👏🏻 We pay our taxes so Trump can have an expensive Firework show.... smh Disney spends 50k per day on fireworks. What’s your point? It’s 4th of July.. take a break from the douchiness if you’re able.

Decent! Well worth it. Trumpstupidity of a biggot That’ll be a dope show Somewhat. We wasted more money on Congress is vacations than that. I hope it’s on TV and I’m gonna watch it and enjoy every moment of it. Celebrate stop bitching. And? And? Trump gotta sell like 30 kids for this event 🤔 Do it So? I agree, invest in riot control equipment.

It better be paid for by the RNC! America shouldn't be financing his rallies! I hope nobody shows up again!!!!🤣🤣👌 Not completely relevant but monuments and slave business owners statues have more rights than African-American (and many other ethnic minorities). America, get help. Thus proving he cares not about middle or low class America, he cares about upper class money. no one at this point (especially business owners) should be splurging $600,000.

Destroy Mount Rushmore To celebrate a failed president and a failed country We could use that for PPE And COVID19 tests And general park repair and maintenance. GOOD! Its call an INDEPENDENCE DAY CELEBRATION!! NOT FIREWORKS AT MOUNT RUSHMORE!! CLOWNS!! No big deal, its not like that money could be used in a million other places right now. FFS While citizens struggle to eat, to live, the traitor in chief blows your money on sparkley things. Sparkley things that could start a forest fire and hurt so many more. 😑 VoteTrumpOut

Completely useless uneducated responses. Don’t u people realize the amount of unnecessary spending the govt does day in & day out basis? 600k is nothing in the grand scheme of things. But hey what do I know bc when they move to spend billions on stimulus you people will be mum. Go Trump! 4 more years! Trump2020

And your point is? Good, if the democrats can waste millions on investigations, then Trump can spend 1/2 million on fireworks. Obama mansion is 20 times that Cant wait to see it So what? So fucking what? How much did the Democrats spend on the fake Russian hoax? God bless the USA 4th Of July In Vegas This even will raise the spirits of millions.

Not nearly as much as all the vandalism has cost the taxpayers Yet some people still waiting on a first check Who tha fuck cares?👀🤷🏾‍♂️🤦🏾‍♂️ I feel like this means we could be providing free PPE to our essential workers. The feds just choose not to. Ridiculous! What was the total money amount that the destructive and racist looting and rioting and protesting cost

How much did the clean-up of all the riots cost? Costs way less than clean up from all the riots. Obama gave away 1.5 billion. Again President Trump saving Americans money yet again. Is that factoring in Corona hospital costs also? That’s about the cost of a monument torn down by rioters. Most firework shows cost this much. Glad it’s still going on!!

Good! I wish it cost more! GOD BLESS AMERICA. Trump 2020 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸 No mention taxpayers probably get to pay for this show Trump is throwing to entertain himself. Trump2020 NeIkFiIms 😁 urwelcome 😁🤫 lol How about using this money for something useful like investigating who killed VanessaGuillen.

I would like this money to go to the people of SD. I hope it’s televised, I’d watch! It’s not the countries money, it’s his, he hasn’t taken a cent in salary, I think it would be a lit event Good If they don’t do a display, you would complain. 🤔No riots over Trump spending $600K on fireworks, meanwhile the country has 1/4 of all the worlds Covid-19 deaths.

Who cares!!! why dont you go back to reporting hollywood. Leave the political BS to the other fake news media . Well worth it !!!!! Its worth every penny! Looking forward to it! 🇺🇸 🇺🇸 Great optics for realDonaldTrump Who cares? We are celebrating our country & it's founding fathers! What is this president fascination with non-animated objects?

And Good let individuals celebrate their independence locked down in their homes. Who gives a shit? It’s worth it. Who cares about PPE or Homeless and Hungry in America or fires on a land that doesn't belong to you or even that maybe people need help paying bills. Nah he doesn't care, that's for sure. So what?

That’s it? To be honest, I'm surprised it's not more. So got a problem Levin you going to try to start some shit over fireworks Do you know how much that could help out a hospital rn? But y’all aren’t talking about the billions Obama sent Iran are you? 👎🏼 What have all these riots cost? But how much will it cost when he sets that area on fire from said fireworks? That area is extremely dry and they said fireworks are absolutely banned. But he’s gonna light them off anyway for a photo opp for his campaign.🤦🏽‍♂️this man is extremely dangerous to America. 🤦🏽‍♂️

Non of his supporters will wear mask because the ones they like are probably to obvious That's it? Can we donate for a bigger fireworks display? I'd donate to build a Trump 2020 fireworks display above Mt. Rushmore!!!! How much did the riots cost? That 600k could help a lot of struggling Americans right now! Must be nice...

Trump loves America!! Biden loves China. Heard through sources that there will be a confederate fireworks flag during the show as an up yours to the people trying to revise history. Nice, beacuse Nancy Pelosi's Drinking has Cost the American People Millions Fuck yeah!! Happy Birthday America!!! Losers talking about PPE

So Awesome he always goes first class! MAGA ! What does he care, it's not his money ? I wonder what the protests cost? TMZ is worried about a POTUS celebrating our nations birthday but not the Marxist BLM and pride parades... you can’t make this up. Stay in your lanes liberal deranged reporters trying who try to discredit an event because of DTS...

It’s going to be spectacular! That's like nothing with 7 trillion out the door recently. I guess you missed filming Bill Clinton’s gf being arrested by the feds yesterday. 600k on that while kids starvin 🤷🏾‍♂️ How much will the riots of Minneapolis and New York City cost only those? So, the small government and less spending conservatives are ok with this? If so, your cult-like hypocrisy is showing.

...and? All does anymore is stir the shit pot, and try to cause more racial division. Your show now SUCKS! What happened to entertainment news? You've turned into a division of BLM + MSNBC fake news. I haven't watched your show since you started reporting riots. He's sending a middle finger to the BLM movement

It’s going to be one hell of a show! Well worth it! Invest the money in the start up community businesses Discusting When it's something to do with Trump and people gather you mention the virus, yet you don't say anything about it when its protesters/rioters. I have seen a few live streams where multiple people don't have masks.

Somebody with a lil money might as well stack some boom boom pow 🧨 up there ....lil reconstructive surgery for the forefathers they gettin real old 🥱😈 make em pretty So! More tax payers money......and the rich are not paying a dime..... TMZ used to be funny and moderate. Now it’s like every other liberal news station ripping on everything Trump or the conservatives do. Why watch? Pandering to half the country. Be fair. Be funny. Go back to what brought you to this point in the first place.

Dont tell me we dont have money for a stimulus. 'Let them eat cake' is Trumps new campaign slogan. They haven’t had fireworks at Mount Rushmore in a decade or more. There is concern for the forest and the potential for fire. Trump doesn’t care about the environment and I’m sure that other presidents have avoided it, makes it that much more appealing to him.

That’s a few more stimulus checks down the drain.... Fireworks on stolen land ... those are sacred mountains to the Lakota they should be given back to the Lakota people We can’t afford to give our fellow people stimulus checks like Canada and other countries are doing but yet we can afford fucking fireworks on a bullshit holiday. Wow just wow

Better spent than on reparations Why has he not contracted the virus? He never follows the rules. America’s Mount Rushmore Fireworks Event... cmon losers get it right Worth it... luv America! ❤️🌻 Oh what a great investment. NOT. I can’t wait! Probably worth it Money well spent 🎉 Sweet! How much did bidens riots cost

Spend more! Use the money they took away from the police to pay for it that could of been a 2nd stimulus We need that kind of money to buy PPE for Hospitals and Doctor’s offices. Not another show for Trump. Why is it 'Trumps' - It's Americas Fireworks event. Now that we're talking.. why are you even posting something like this? The only purpose is to be onboard the let's rag on Trump train. C'mon people

.... Could’ve used that money for something useful but ok ig He’s in credit though, isn’t he? He’s donated his presidential salary every year since he won. Is this fireworks event going to be on tv or streamed? Yay, Trump!! Happy 4th!🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸 Has he forgotten that there is a pandemic? That’s a whole lot of PPE that could be purchased.

I wish it were $1 million. Love America!!! Worth it. ok
