    1. No but if it were the past administration he would just lie and call out “fake news” and claim he never said it and soon FOX and the other enablers would start repeating that claim and his supporters would swear he never said it.

    2. America is 64% vaccinated with at least one dose. That’s as good as it’s gonna get. Most who’ve had one dose will get the second. Most of the other 36% won’t even get the first.

      It’s no coincidence that 36% is also the steady MAGA percentage. COVID was so politicized, I’d bet a dime to a bottle of worm spit that most who refuse the vaccine are MAGA folk.

      I predict COVID won’t go away entirely. The MAGA crowd will keep it around enough to mutate into more stubborn strains. It won’t be as bad, but bad enough to cause a large number of cases, still much worse than the flu, into the winter. Data will show most of those infected will be MAGA morons. There may be surges in some areas where the CDC will recommend wearing masks again.

      I’m vaccinated, but I wouldn’t mind wearing one again, only to hide my laughter at the fools.

      We can’t segregate into blue and red states or create Magastan, wall it off, (unlike Mexico, I’d gladly help pay for it), and let their fantasy utopia fail without them being able to blame liberals. But COVID is one area where we’ll be separate. It won’t affect us as long as they don’t raise health insurance premiums on those who got vaccinated.

      (Hey MAGAtards, you have us who wore masks and got shots to thank for there not being 2.2 million deaths and the economy and health care systems not completely crashing, you selfish, anti-social, paranoid freaks).

  1. For some reason, in the US, a leader trying to do something to get people to save their own lives is like herding cats.

    1. @HobbsO Well, nobody is buying your fairytale “statistics” I wonder why…
      “If someone dies WITH covid-19, we are counting that.” – Direct quote from Dr. Birx at the Coronavirus Task Force press conference. You could literally make a stuffy nose the leading cause of death using this rule.

    2. @HobbsO And we have actual evidence of this being a PLANdemic

      “There is no question that there will be a challenge the coming administration in the arena of infectious diseases both chronic infectious diseases in the sense of already ongoing disease and we have certainly a large burden of that, but also there will be a surprise outbreak.” – Anthony Fauci, 2017 at Georgetown University

      The Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security in partnership with the World Economic Forum and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation hosted Event 201, a high-level pandemic exercise on October 18, 2019, in New York, NY.

      Event 201… 2 months before the first “outbreak” in China? Hmm Just a silly coinkidink

      PLANdemic

      “Well, nobody is buying your fairytale “statistics” I wonder why”
      They’re just called statistics, and everyone with half a brain in their heads believes them.

      “You could literally make a stuffy nose the leading cause of death using this rule.”
      If that’s true then surely we see decreasing deaths from other causes right? Oh no, that’s not what we see at all. In fact deaths from heart disease are up, not down.

    4. @Alfarojv
      “2 months before the first “outbreak” in China?”
      Yes, because they have been predicting an outbreak like this for years. Obama predicted an outbreak like this after we saw several other similar outbreaks during his presidency. The fact that world renowned virologists were able to predict this isn’t even impressive. It was expected.

  2. That’s ok Joe, the only places still having covid problems are Trump states. Maybe would should build a wall around them instead. Or send them to the border and cage them till we can deport them to Russia. According to Gallup Republicans favor Putin over Biden 2 to 1.

    1. @Realpeopleneverpost Love to see you try. I think the entire world favors Putin over Joey Bribes.

  3. ВЫ ИСПУГАЛИСЬ ЧТО Я ТРАМПА СОБИРАЛСЯ СЕБЕ НА ШЕЮ ПОСАДИТЬ…ДАЖЕ И НЕ ДУМАЛ…)

    1. @Monica Williams
      Try slapping two rocks between the legs, either side of the dangly bits. Sharp intake,

  4. And here come all the brilliant “wrong” wing conspiracy theorists. Let’s hear it all you science denying Einsteins…

    1. maybe one of the benefits of this pandemic is the herd will be culled into a higher average IQ. Can’t escape natural selection.

  5. NBC.
    DONT leave home without it, use your Mask… the guy ur passing at the grocery storestore doesn’t care bout you…

    1. @Wigit there were more than a million a day being given before Biden was sworn in and he said he wanted to reach 100 million in 100 days. Really tough, he just had to keep up the pace that Trump set. Try watching something other than msnbc and PBS and CNN.

    2. @Wigit Trump got a vaccine developed in record time and Biden wants credit for getting it trucked to clinics. Great job!

    3. LLM – You act like Trump was in a lab workinf with scientists and asking relevant questions.

      If you want to compare the two, it was a lot more complicated to coordinate distribution than what Trump did, which was basically to say, “Get it done and make ME look good or else!”

  6. I love the talking head’s apologist babblings. A classic spindoctor backpedaling song and dance. Hopefully his liberal druid followers will buy it and continue to blindly support their Alzheimer’s victim.

  7. There’s only so much that you can do to help people who won’t help themselves. The rest of the world could use those vaccines if you don’t want them.

    1. America is 64% vaccinated with at least one dose. That’s as good as it’s gonna get. Most who’ve had one dose will get the second. Most of the other 36% won’t even get the first.

    2. @J Groovy yeah we’re not Guinea pigs, we’ll let Biden voters be that , since they voted for a old man, to bring youth to the office of the presidential office.

    3. @Waldemar Marchesi – Who said we were trying to bring youth to the office? That’s just a dumb statement. Not to mention, the last guy was an old man who had the maturity of a 14 year old.

    4. @J Groovy What’s apparent to me is I don’t think you’d actually utter any of this diatribe to a conservative, you know—-in real life.

      If you’re an open-minded and decent person, I think you’d probably prefer having a rational discussion rather than spew these wild characteristics of what you suppose a conservative is.

      The blame game and pitting against each other is (in my experience) not only counterproductive—but a false representation of our true selves. If we truly believe the “other side” are the enemies, then the news has done its job and our capacity for critical thinking is really shoddy.

    1. @HobbsO Spare me the propaganda news. Everyone knows those lies by now but what most folks don’t know is the truth. It won’t matter now, if you took the shot, you don’t want to know so stop trying to convince other people to make that choice.

    2. America is 64% vaccinated with at least one dose. That’s as good as it’s gonna get. Most who’ve had one dose will get the second. Most of the other 36% won’t even get the first.

  8. Okay, I didn’t watch the video. Just tell me how it’s Trump’s or Republican’s fault.

    1. Donald Trump…

      – Inherited a plan to contain a pandemic, but chose not to use it because it was commissioned by the Obama Administration.

      – Accused a doctor of faking a makeshift COVID ward set up in a parking garage.

      – Neglected to refill medical stockpiles for 3 years.

      – Mistakenly predicted that, “like a miracle,” COVID would go away.

      – Repeatedly falsely claimed we were “rounding the corner” on COVID.

      – Pushed snake oil cures and touted an endorsement by a “doctor” who said COVID was a result of “demon sperm”.

      – Left states to fend for themselves, forcing them into a bidding war against each other.

      – Pushed hydroxychloroquin as a cure despite virtually all experts saying it had not been proven, even as a treatment. When one of his claims was rebuked by a scientist, Trump responded, “I don’t think science knows.”

      – Echoed the demands of domestic terrorists who planned to kidnap and hold a mock trial for the Governor of Michigan because of her COVID restrictions.

      – Re-routed CDC data through the White House, where it was censored and re-worded.

      – Removed the WHO’s pandemic team from China months before it hit the US.

      – Shamelessly politicized the disease, calling it a Democrat hoax.

      – Repeatedly flouted local safety restrictions, the advice of the CDC, and his own COVID task force.

      – Consistently blamed China for failing to contain COVID, but failed to contain it in the US, and failed to keep his family and White House staff from contracting it.

      – Filled the COVID task force with people with more expertise in PR than medicine.

      – Tried to take millions of Americans’ health care away during the worst pandemic in over a hundred years.

      – Made multiple false claims about how it would just go away by certain dates, and was wrong every time.

      – Held many large rallies and celebrations with little to no social distancing instead of setting a good example. He removed social distance stickers from seats at at least one rally.

      – Repeatedly suggested that we should slow down testing so the numbers would decrease and make him look better.

      – Spread false propaganda about COVID being no worse than the flu after telling Bob Woodward that it was a vicious disease, and that “If you’re the wrong person, you don’t stand a chance.”

      – Claimed that 99% of cases were “totally harmless”.

      – Discouraged his supporters from listening to the medical experts.

      – Repeatedly discouraged mask-wearing and ridiculed those who wore them.

      – Constantly lied about the US fatality rate.

      – Repeatedly lied about testing rates and how the US compared to other countries.

      – Baselessly blamed Mexico for COVID spikes in the US.

      – Threatened to defund public education to try and force children to go back to school before the full impact of the disease was known.

      – Baselessly accused hospital staff in New York of selling Personal Protective Equipment “out the back door”.

      – Handled the pandemic so poorly that it crippled the economy and put 9 million people out of work, into a housing crisis, creating massive food insecurity.

      – Claimed that COVID-19 was being overblown because of the US general election despite it being a world pandemic.

      – Lied about Google engineers building a website to help Americans determine whether they need testing for COVID-19 and to direct them to their nearest testing site.

      – Claimed to have saved 2.2 million lives by restricting travel from China, but allowed nearly 40,000 people to enter the US from China. 2.2 million was the projected death toll if we did nothing at all.

      – Claimed this was something nobody thought could happen, when experts both inside and outside of the federal government sounded the alarm many times in the past decade about the potential for a severe global pandemic.

      – Wondered aloud if injecting bleach or somehow shining UV light inside of the body could cure COVID.
