  1. The CDC needs to go back to meat packing plants and other virus incubation industries and issue orders for safe operation

    • Viruses don’t incubate easily. Bacteria incubates quite easily, but not viruses. Viruses are not living things, they need living things to survive. A meat packing plant would simply be like any other surface. No more dangerous than getting packages through Amazon.

      @Chris Flados as i understood their comment, I thought they were just being tongue and cheek. Not necessarily talking about scientific facts. But that the meat packing places are just hotbeds for spreading the virus. My perception could be off though

    • Katherine Jones | March 16, 2021 at 3:28 PM | Reply

      And the Department of agriculture ought to look at those plants and inspect dairy operations for welfare and safety of all the dairy cattle in the country!

      Regulations are necessary because too many humans, especially capitalists, are unscrupulous in their greed!

  2. If this lead to deaths then those that died have a case against TRUMP

    When everything becomes a ‘political loyalty test,’ you’re definitely dealing with anarchistic narcissist.

    • @Pashak de Scilly In the TV series “The Walking Dead”, Rick and his associates symbolize anarchism while Negan and the Saviors symbolize government.

      “We survive. We provide security to others. We bring civilization back to this world. We are the Saviors.”

      —Negan to his gang of “Saviors”

      This sort of statist propaganda shouldn’t sound all too unfamiliar for anyone who really thinks about all of the verbal excrement spewed by the state and its unscrupulous agents.

      @Chris Canzanese I came to the conclusion that Total Anarchy = Law of The Jungle = Purest form of Capitalism

    Trump spewed so much crap on this country I’m surprised we haven’t had to nuke ourselves clean.

    • @TheMedia FullOfCrap Number 45 had a big heart 💖! The most nonsensical thing I ever heard. He hasn’t got a heart, just a pump to push the fat around the veins. Only just managing that! Dumb as a rock.

      @keepit kawaii How many voted because they share his values and how many voted because they were desperate and he promised a check?

      @oltedders Trump ideas came from a lunatic mindset under cutting the cdc using their name and putting his nuisance in was the cause for many deaths every thing he is involved in turns into it minus the s and h remember when he wanted to be the weather man during one hurricane 🌀season predicted the hurricane was going to hit some where in Alabama with his false narrative what about him telling a foreign country how to put out a fire 🔥 and oh how 🤔about hydroxychloroquine cure for covic on national TV 📺 alone with injection 💉bleach thank God he didn’t injected us with another 4yrs with his brilliant brain of disasters and look what he did to the pandemic house spreading covic Trump said it was a hoax then said it was like the flu and what he did to the Philippines after the hurricane was racist and sent out his hand picked so called company to fix the electrical grids and what he did to the capital building is unforgiving you wonder how anyone would vote for him if Obama did one third of this he would be kicked out of office because the repugs and Trump followers would be looking at this totally different this shows how corrupt and racist this country is look how they defend and protect there own
      Non Americans insurrection its not the foreign terrorists who will destroy America its domestic terrorist and we know what they look 😉like the hole world no they can’t lie out of this one

    • @TheMedia FullOfCrap big hearted guys don’t. STEAL. from. Charity

    • Now, now, there are some smears and things that could happily survive “Scorched Earth” policies… Like cockroaches. Y’know, like the “Cult of the Orange-Man”.

  5. Cleaning house after a rich kids party.

    • Bidens doing such a bad job. Trump will be back.

    • @lex samuel
      Had his personal attorney paying off women who knew he was of bad character to keep them quiet so he could win the election.
      Had Roger Stone receive hacked e-mails from Guccifer (a Russian hacker) via WikiLeaks to help him win election.
      Governed via Tweet.
      Was golfing, doing laps at Nascar, and taking selfies at the Taj Mahal 2-3 months after he was briefed a deadly pandemic was bearing down.
      Used Three Amigos o withhold $391 million in Congressionally appropriated funding from Ukraine — to steal the election.
      Said everything was fine with COVID — so he could get re-elected because that mattered more than a few deaths.
      Threatened Goergia — to overturn the election.
      Ginned up a mob that laid siege to U.S. Capitol and injured 140+ police officers — to overturn the election.

      Now who were you calling the disaster?

    • @Conservative Prodigy Fortunately, the majority of us saw how much of a disaster Trump was and voted him out

    • A rich kid’s party in which some of us paid the ultimate price

    • @Conservative Prodigy I see you have not responded to my overwhelming documentation.

      Democrats pretending that teachers needed to be vaccinated was a blatant display of them pandering to unions and not following science at all after the cdc specifically said schools could reopen and are still saying it.

      Biden is confused..He is cognitively challenged…
      The people needs to stop listening to him….This is absurd

  7. Sounds like criminally negligent homicide or voluntary manslaughter.

    • @Mike Morgan “what other vectors of transmission we were warned about?”
      those are the primary vectors of transmission. they were worried about surfaces too, and did warn about them, which led to trump asking to have doctors inject disinfectants into ppl.

    • @V for Wombat , Those are the primary vectors you were told about and were happy to accept. You won’t know all the issues with asepsis, or transmission thru pets until you dutifully watch The public broadcasting documentary in a year or so. Then you will accept the facts.

    • V for Wombat | March 19, 2021 at 2:36 AM | Reply

      @Mike Morgan i know about transmission thru pets.
      in any case, i seriously doubt those low event secondary infections are responsible for high numbers of infections, which is what we were speaking of.

    • @V for Wombat , You call it secondary because that’s what the media releases. What if there are a half dozen secondary vector of transmission. Urine and other bodily fluids are infected. Not covering your eyes leave you vulnerable, door knobs, money , countertops , ATM machines, common area keypads/ elevators etc.. when did the public get warned about cross contamination?

    • V for Wombat | March 19, 2021 at 5:13 AM | Reply

      @Mike Morgan “What if there are a half dozen secondary vector of transmission.”
      then there are a half dozen of them. primary vs secondary isn’t what the press decides, it’s what the scientists decide, based on the properties of the virus.

      “when did the public get warned about cross contamination:
      within a few weeks. which is why they held a press conference where the scientists showed a paper that said disinfectant kills the virus on doorknobs etc quick, and why trump then asked doctors to look into injecting that disinfectant into ppl,
      which is when the press mocked him so much for being so stupid he stopped the briefings for months- a sure sign of someone competent handling the crisis.

      oh, wait….

      @Stephen S Psychopathic, homicidal greedy little parasites who think they have the right to decide who lives and who dies. The proper solution to these maniacs is to hunt them down and hang them from every lamp post for everyone to see.

      @Stephen S Why do they want to replace white people?

    • @Yolanda Denny Trump’s yelling fake news while the entertainment “news” programs kept repeating his and his subordinates lies fueled the insurrection. Ironic how a capitalistic company is helping take down so many of the lies. Once these people are cornered the are using the Tucker Carlson Defense (I lie so much a rational person should not believe me, I’m just entertainment).

      @Mary Halverson BS
      She speaks what needs to be heard, unlike the insane propagandists of the right wing media. Are you aware that in defense of a lawsuit, Fox ‘News’ contended that they are an entertainment channel, and have no obligation to tell the truth? The judge found in Fox’ favor, on the grounds that no-one with any sense would believe anything said by that fool Tucker Carlson. That he has no credibility whatsoever. Same goes for all of that disgusting disinformation channel – and they are less bad that the others like OANN….

      🐎💩 ALERT!!!


  12. Wasn’t Redfield the guy in all the covid “briefings” who stood gazing up at T***p adoringly, as if he was the Second Coming?
    Yep! Thought so.

    • do believe that was Mike Pence he was always standing by looking adoring

    • Yolanda Denny | March 16, 2021 at 12:17 PM | Reply

      No that was Pence. Redfield just stood there looking stoic nodding his head in agreement to all Trump said.

    • @Yolanda Denny – look again, remember the time the Former Guy was telling us about his uncle, and how he, T***p, “understood this stuff” so well? Redfield was giving cow-eyes at his hero all through that BS. But also in the “briefings”. Pence was another worshipper, but Redfield was the one in the CDC.

    • @merrily beck – look again, yes, Pence, but also Redfield.

  13. Redfield looked at Trump the way a rescue dog looks at its new owner. “I’m a good boy right? Im a good boy. Please let me stay”.

  14. Trump actually once said at one of his Fuhrer rallies “they’re” meaning the Dem, “are listening to the scientists”. Well it’s only science that will get people all over the world out of this tragedy.

  15. The families of those who died of Covid because they were misinformed and lied to about the virus should sue the Former Guy and his administration.

    • I agree all 570 thousand that died.their families should sue.could u imagine. Trump would be dragged under for the rest of his life

    This “stuff” Trump put in the CDC , wasn’t inappropriate “stuff” it’s blatant dictatorship!!

    • lets still blame trump … r u people serious. maybe you should question the bill just passed with only dems supporting. only 9% of it goes to covid.

    • @lex samuel Your contention that only 9% of the bill supports Covid is an incorrect assertion that is being made by the Republicans. Covid related businesses, healthcare and others affected bythe pandemic are addressed. Small minds see only small things, or object just because they are not ofthe same party. Controlling the pandemic enough to begin opening the economy and restart schools has been a Republican talking point. However, now that it is being addressed by the Democratic president, they are against it. I think it is time to think of us Americans first and party second.

    • Disgraceful.

      He so admired Kim and Putin. He groveled for them. Don’t think he ever got his military parade.

  20. Just lock him up already I’m tired of hearing about that clown.
