    Dr. Redfield is not offering any solutions but had lots of excuses. He needs to go. But I will credit him with not changing CDC guidelines for schools. Parents and teachers will revolt.

    • @Calvin Green if you have ever HAD to advocate for your civil rights you never would have posted such a moronic statement!

    • @Calvin Green Try to stay on topic and stop projecting your bigoted shite onto things you obviously know nothing about …

      CDC are not giving guidelines, they are giving recommendations

    • @john paul Fake! Besides, he’s sick!

      @P Hollywood stop trolling. Everybody with brains knows that your comments are bs

    • Bruce Lindstrom I’d be honored to attend a Trump rally. Unlike Biden who can barely fill up a classroom of attendees.

    • bdegrds This is very much a power grab by the left. Its always been a power grab to them. They silence anyone who doesn’t agree with them, and they want to take our guns.. Prime example of what fascist leaders have done before becoming dictators.

    • Jutta Soliman Everybody with brains is a Republican, you don’t have a clue- and you take CNN’s word as the truth. You can’t even spot the inherent bias in everything they publish. You are just a useful idiot to them.

    • trump’s feelings are more important than american lives

  3. Finally CNN and Anderson Cooper are saying something good as questioning this moron and the cdc!

    The USA’s handling of this pandemic is an absolute joke compared to the rest of the world!

      Boris Johnson says hold my beer

    • Hanny Hawkins Not trying to burst your bubble but I read the article, since you missed the part about the 5 years of testing of the vaccine before 2016 I’ll paste it here for you…
      Bottazzi said the vaccine has been tested in animals. It also has been tested successfully on a pseudovirus, a lab-made virus that closely resembles SARS-CoV-2 but is incapable of causing disease.

      Before hitting a funding wall in 2016, a consortium spent about five years and $6 million in grants from the National Institutes of Health to develop and test the vaccine. The consortium included Baylor College of Medicine, Texas Children’s Hospital Center, the New York Blood Center, Walter Reed Army Institute of Research and the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston.

      Once developed, the vaccine was manufactured by the Army.

      Then, in 2016, when researchers were ready to proceed to clinical trials, interest in the SARS vaccine vanished. Pharmaceutical companies weren’t interested. Neither werthe Army or other U.S. government agencies.

    • Allan Bennett if I could I would but there’s a pandemic. But you go ahead and go out, enjoy yourself 🤗

    • Geoff Aitken can’t agree more! After 3 million infected, Americans still argued whether wearing face masks! It is ridiculous!

      Of course you say that because fake news brainwashes you that people are not getting tested and people are dieing less than it use to

    When he said “The test is an excellent test,” that’s when I realized that Trump had totally taken control of this dude’s body and mind. He definitely seems to be inebriated or in some sort of altered state.

    • Clay Owlglass I think he’s on a sedative to keep himself from stroking out or having a heart attack from the stress.

  6. Will there be a “global town hall” when Epstein Island patrons are exposed?

  7. CDC Failed In Early Testing. Lives Were Lost.

    The look on Dr Sanjay Gupta’s face the whole time says it all lol.

    • @thowe624
      No , I doubt that. But don’t you think it’s a little strange how nobody’s dying of *Anything else* for the last few months?

    • And btw, he’s extremely handsome….there is nothing about his face that is stupid. You sound jealous.

      It’s called cringe face 😖😖😖😣

    • Jamtommy1 people are still dying of the usual. It’s just not center stage. Just because it’s not I’m the news doesn’t mean it went away

    I’m shipping that dude a case of 5 hr energy.

  10. Anderson roasted this man so hard Sanjay was speechless. It’s a true talent to get through this entire interview without answering 1 single question. Redfield needs to resign. He’s not helping. All he’s doing is destroying his legacy for Trump.

    • @fran bran Honestly, it is easy to argue ( on both sides ) and present valid points to refute both sides as we are missing a lot of data to assess accurately the whole situation, in my opinion. What i do suggest is that you talk with the front line workers in a hospital and see if it is similar to a bad flu. It is as if we are criticizing a war from the backline based on the charts and numbers brought to us by the media. I say, talk to a soldier (in this case, a medical care worker) and he/she will give you a better assessment of what is going on the battlefield than any of the media outlets( # cases, hospitalization, # PPE, etc ) I initially believed it was a bad flu as well and after talking to some of the health care workers I now firmly believe that it is worse (i never took the H1N1 vaccine but am willing to take this if it comes out one day)…. What i find sad is that it has been politicized so much ( by both sides ) that it is just causing more harm to people in general as the virus does not care about politics.

    • @tedesca89 Doctors are finding better ways to treat it but since ppl think its a game & won’t wear masks the numbers are growing out of control. Supplies & beds are running low. Pretty soon it won’t matter if we have better treatments if they doctors cant get to ppl in time. That’s why the EU banned us.

    • he pretty much threw away his medical degree to be a right-wing puppet

    • @fran bran wait 3 to 4 weeks. The EU has nothing like your case numbers, ours weren’t even as bad at the point where we had just shut down and had to wait 2 to 3 weeks for them to fall again. Our highest point was 6000 cases a day for a country of 80 million people. The US has ~ 4 x as many people – you are way above 24 000 per day. It’s 3 times that now. There will be many more deaths when the virus works its way to the older and more vulnerable people.

    • @IT3210 How do they come up with the numbers ? today 60.000 new cases wow these tests are getting faster all the time,
      There is no data at all just big numbers,
      We know 6000 elderly died in care homes ,because governors of blue states were ordering infected people back into them.
      Scientists and doctors say the death rate is falling dramatically , so testing positive is not as bad as first thought.
      Why does no one report on the hundreds of thousands of people who have recovered from covid.
      Dr. Fair appeared in a hospital bed fighting off the disease with oxygen tubes in his nose when he appeared on NBC.In one segment
      never had the virus, he revealed this week.
      For instance, did you know that the fatality rate in the U.S. is far below that of France, the United Kingdom and Germany?

    Why is the Doc rocking?? He looks Disheveled and a Shining Drunk !!

    • Jo-Erlend Schinstad | July 10, 2020 at 6:28 AM | Reply

      Looks more like benzodiazepines to me. But he really does seem quite stone.

    • He’s just trying to do the best he can with the situation of having REALLY TOXIC BOSS in DJT! If you’ve ever been in that kind of situation day in & out you’d know how stress-filled it is. You’d be rocking too. I have been and it is a heavy weight. You KNOW if he speaks up what will happen. He’s between a rock & a hard place for sure.

      @L Johnson I’ve been there as well. But he wasn’t drafted my friend. He chose to work for Trump, so excuse us if we don’t overly empathize with his struggles.

  12. He has to be careful what he says because he knows Trump is watching.

    • he seems to have an uncanny ability to find any news about himself 😆😆

      Ash Roskell – Hahahaha I was wondering why he keeps rocking back and forth. He’s sore af!

    • @Jerry Marasco just ONE question: Why did other countries respond so much better?

    • KrystalOcean | July 10, 2020 at 1:35 PM | Reply

      Victoria Biggs – before you work yourself up into a frenzy of fear – they were absolutely not telling their subjects to shoot people, in any way shape or form. They were standing in solidarity to send a message to the kkk that they won’t just sit back and be intimidated. And they were exercising their LAWFUL 2nd amendment rights, just like any armed white militia group. The group NFAC actually has a rigorous vetting process, it’s not like they just put a gun in anyone’s hands. Here is a local interview they did on The Roland Martin show yesterday —>

      Bigly Brother is watching

  13. CDC director and Ben Carson could be twins. Both lethargic in communication.

  14. He sounds like Charlie Browns teacher

    Why did they have to develop an own test, when Germany offered them a working test for free?

    • because there is money in licensing their own. It#s all about fucking money with that greedy pharma industry.

    • Made in America I guess, Mr Trump has show that they can make it themselves or he was elected to office on a base of lies, you can’t bring back jobs without making it in America

    Redfield in charge of the CDC
    I wouldn’t put him in charge of a piss up in a brewery.

    • Thomas Wilson – And I wouldn’t put Trump in charge of any greater responsibility than changing a urinal cake in a brewery. Then again, he’d probably eff that up, too.

    • Exactly What’s wrong with this guy.

    • Mimi M – It’s so pathetic how he can’t stand up for what the CDC should represent. Everyone who shouldn’t be scared of Trump (US govt employees and agencies) is scared of Trump; yet corrupt tyrants leading other countries think Trump is a joke. 🤷🏻‍♀️

    • @Blue Calla I agree i’m counting the freaking days Trump has left.

    • Mimi M – Me too. With Trump out of office, at least there would be a chance of saving additional people from unnecessary getting sick and dying, and there would also be a chance of saving our country. With Trump getting re-elected (which I can’t see happening), you might as well change USA to DSD (Divided State of Doom). Hey, not bad; just made that up, lol.

    Is Redfield being interviewed from a moving train? He seems to be constantly rocking side to side….
