CDC Director's Office Ordered Softening Of Coronavirus Safety Protocols For Meat Plant | MSNBC


  1. Corruption has never been worse than under donnie boy. Over 200,000 dead ! Hold the entire GOP accountable this November! Karma corona take him down…waiting…waiting…waiting, if there is a god, time to step up , haha, right.

  2. Look at all the Covid that was spread and how these people health was at risk with no guidence really just like the rest of the u.s. These people need to go.

  3. Nothing involving Washington shocks me anymore. I don’t know if that is good or bad. I just can’t stress out anymore. November will be here soon and maybe… just maybe… come January, we will have a country again. If Trump wins in November, we’re all royally screwed over.

    1. That is part of Donald & the GOP’s plan…. assault your capacity to be shocked… until it all becomes white noise, and you no longer care. You have lasted this long, do not give up when there is the chance in November to put an end to this. Get motivated – fire up your neighbours, encourage your family, cajole your friends…. and vote! Democratic apathy is what Donald wants – meanwhile he feeds red meat to the 40% or so of America that have fallen for the con. The world misses the honourable, trustworthy, compassionate America that lead by example…… please help restore this image. VOTE!

    2. Totally agree…we’ve seen it all…4 more years and bunkie boy turns into a dictator. He’s ever bit as evil as adolf, if given the opportunity! Seriously, if he wins, moving to Portugal. Democracy, Health Insurance, similar economy, and although Spanish is the main language, most everyone also speaks English…better English than the stupid trumpsters!

    1. And trumps goonies who made these changes. I don’t trust anything that comes from white house suppressed organizations or people. This is completely out of control. They need to be stopped.

    1. @Mary Elizabeth I got news for you, Canada is going along with this Trump agenda also!
      Why do you think the new director of the post offices wife was given the ambassador job there.

    2. @CherBear I would not count on that since there are a couple of things she has to do to take that position for Trump & his minions. Why do you think it took so long for just a few to come forward in the republican senate?!

    3. Linda Lauer. I doubt that the Canadian government requested her as an ambassador. That would have been a trump choice. About the only way to have stopped it would have been if she had a long criminal record. At this time I think the only thing she will be to show up and look pretty, if possible. No one will be taking a trump appointee seriously. They only get these jobs because they either gave trump money or they ‘good’ things about orange hitler.

    4. Bill. The risk is that they will spread it to others, family, friends and strangers. If the work force gets too low, normal work practices ( safety) will be affected.

  4. Were they trying to avoid any liability when their employees caught Covid-19 at work? We know everything Trump touches dies, but Shame on Dr. Redfield he took an oath to do no harm. He should be held responsible.

  5. This whole republican administration is a giant cover-up all at the expense of the very people that ALL took a oath to protect the American people…they are all responsible for the deaths of 200,000+ human beings……including the Doctor…you are all a disgrace…

    1. @John Nordby That’s exactly why Trump is keeping him as far away from the WH as possible. Its difficult to not see this as potential homicide

  6. Manslaughter. Negligent Homicide potentially. Conspiracy. This is s slam dunk, since there are deaths attributed to this plant. We need all documents and communications from the Administration, CDC, Perdue’s office, and HHS on April 22. All roads lead back to Redfield, then to ALEX AZAR, and then…..likely Jared behind all of it. JARED.

    1. Paraphrase: “ they’re not directly telling us what to do and giving us guidance on what to do in the second version”

  7. There’s only one thing any patriotic American needs to do this election to save Americans and science, #VoteBidenHarris
    CDC is become such a disgrace. It hurts so much because how do I, in good conscience, tell patients to get evidence-based information at the CDC.

    1. …. *I hope EVERY WORKER & person whose life & health has been damaged* By these EVIL DANGEROUS *Trump WH lies & manipulations* -Which caused the CDC to RE-WRITE it’s documents: Please look up the videos, below. Then contact the ACLU / or Glenn Kirschner *# JUSTICE MATTERS # TEAM JUSTICE* / other Constitutional Lawyers like Neal Katyal / Laurence Tribe/ – To find out how to SUE TRUMP PERSONALLY, along with every individual whose negligence & lies harmed your life . *Bless you & good luck* ♡

      I highly recommend  finding & studying YouTube videos by *Former Fed Prosecutor Glenn Kirschner* see excellent examples, below…

      |Watch “Woodward’s Tapes, Trump’s Covid Admissions & a Homicide Prosecutor’s Take on Criminal Liability” on YouTube

      Important! To better understand *Trump’s nazi supremacy & genocidal agenda* Pls look up & watch this video for yourselves:- |Watch “The Rise of the *Nazis* | History” on YouTube.

      Watch “Trump & Barr cry: “Antifa/Antifa/Antifa, China/China/China”. FBI Dir Wray Smacks them Down w/Truth” on YouTube

  8. I believe the entire purpose of these actions is to completely erode public confidence in our CDC. And it is working. After all, why should the WH worry about “little working people” in places like meatpacking plants with no real worth to our country. Please vote these monsters out of office.

    1. Well, here’s the why of it…
      “… report studying the impact of the coronavirus on workers at meat processing plants has found that 87% of people infected were racial or ethnic minorities ”

      great again again

    1. Smithfield Foods, Inc., is a pork producer and food-processing company based in Smithfield, Virginia, in the United States, and a wholly owned subsidiary of WH Group of China.

    1. @Abram Carroll no..he didnt..thats the liability bs that McConnell wants in his covid bill..dems refused it and he wont play without it..currently? I believe you CAN still sue..hope they do..

    2. monster J we had many Covid break outs in Australia in meat plants – our government cut number of employers and production to ensure safety along with strict social distancing/PPE requirements. Gosh I hope you see dramatic change in November for the US
