  1. yeah, but the person doing the injecting is immune to the danger because gets everyone around himself tested every hour..

      That doesn’t necessarily mean he is in an immune bubble. He doesn’t know if these people are going to test + or – until he tests them. Plus, no matter the result of the test, the symptoms in most people don’t show right away. As it stands now, the CDC is saying symptoms can be expressed from 2-14 days. But the average person generally takes a longer rather than shorter time.

    Religion & Politics should never mix & Politics into tRumps CovFeFe-45 Morona Virus is a recipe ripe for disaster!

  4. A continuous booster jab of dumb ignorance.from the reigning non-doctor…

  5. Stay home as much as possible. Wear a mask when you go out. Try to find some hand sanitizer. Wash your hands more than once. Keep social distancing. It worked here. No one has died of covid, that we know of, in 3 weeks.

  6. Trumps whole plan while in office has been to inject politics into anything he could, he thought it would help him but independent voters see through his lies and bigotry…

    did you know that 2000 to 2008 was rigged by sanctuary supporters to destroy 7 countries in 5 years westley clark leaked memo ? so many hate bush spare libya, they hate trump wanting to withdraw from Syria/Afghanistan

  8. The is a tropical rain storm 200 miles west of Donald Trump. MSNBC can’t even report the weather without using the name Donald Trump. Look at all the videos here at MSNBC’s youtube site. Every single one is political. There is no news here that isn’t political. I have to go to a foreign news agency to find out what is going on in the real world.

  9. Trump and his administration are guilty of having no idea, no action or solutions for how to solve a National health and economic disaster and how to keep kids safe in schools.

    We are witnessing one of the greatest failures of basic governance and basic leadership. Hang in there people Trumps going to do what he always does when his ineptitude and incompetence are found out, distract from the issue, deflect blame and responsibility on to others and try to divide.

  10. So simple so straightforward so reasonable advice , yet those Agolf’s followers with empty heads just refuse to listen.

    We have a president that believes he is the chosen one.
    what can a tiny virus do against that?. does it sound CRAZY?. MAGA,MAGA….

  12. Everyone stay home and watch how quick the store shelves go empty. Sure. Send everyone another check, but there won’t be anything on the shelves to buy if everyone actually stayed home. China really needs to pay for what they did to the whole world.

  13. We need a Medical Lincoln Project!

  14. The coup19 virus

    And Golfing……😉

  16. If we could only just trust the economists, sociologists, constitutional experts, child psychologists, and business leaders at the CDC to provide a comprehensive pandemic response. Sorry, I forgot, that’s not what they do. They solve for only one variable of the equation. Leaders like Governors and the President actually have to find the optimal (or least painful) solution to a multi-variable problem. Doesn’t mean the President isn’t listening, he just isn’t listening to the CDC exclusively.

    Democrats , Vote Trump 2020 ,

  18. Yes -but the Dems, the Left, and the mainstream media don’t care about that as long as it fits their narrative!!! Its too late now -there is so much misinformation out now – no one knows the truth!!

    May be an extension a bit, but wearing masks with social distancing go a long way until vaccine gets developed. Living examples; Asian countries with heavy population density don’t have the surge we have here in the states because they all wear masks and keep distances. It’s not the open economy to blame. Whether economy is open or not, nobody will stay home all day. They all go out and socialize. It’s people with resistance against wearing the masks with social distancing, not the open economy.

    I was hoping for some real & current updates on Covid19, but when the 1st sentence out of Besser’s mouth was starting down the road to Trump bashing I could see that wasn’t going to happen. So much for the CDC. Besser began by criticizing bringing politics into health concerns, but that was exactly what he started off with. He should try leading by example.
