Chris Hayes Podcast With John M. Barry | Why Is This Happening? - Ep 104 | MSNBC 1


What did we learn from the last great pandemic? You don’t have to dig deep into the 1918 influenza before finding eerie similarities to today – be it the White House downplaying the severity of the virus or the social distancing measures recommended by public health officials. Author John M. Barry’s meticulously researched account of the 1918 pandemic in his book “The Great Influenza” was so affecting that it inspired then President George W. Bush to develop a comprehensive pandemic plan after reading it. There’s no one better to discuss the similarities and differences to what played out a century ago – and the far reaching reverberations this moment will have – than John M. Barry.» Subscribe to MSNBC:

  1. fyi this “obamagate” thing is obviously the ‘death star’ the trump campaign was talking about. Not sure what the scam is, exactly – and of course it is against scammer policy to explain it to anyone (which is why trump dodged the question), but with the senate republicans having given trump permission to cheat as much as he can, expect all the fakery in the world poured into this thing. But always keep in mind that if there was ever any substance to it it would be in the hands of the FBI, not trump’s campaign manager..

  2. The Jimmy Dore show just ripped Obama apart. Check it out on YouTube you might learn something people

    • yes, trump troll, because when i want far right fake news, “checking out” a youtube video is the way to go 😀

    • @Norm alice dude, he’s real Progressive unlike these Neo Libs and Republican Lite. Or are you one? We all know REAL progressives won’t vote for Biden. Again, check his channel out you might learn something 👍

      @krelfurnace Hysteria is not a virtue. Neither is deranged hatred. You shouldn’t advertise your deranged hysteria.

      @Truth Matters Treason is definitely not a virtue, Republicommie vermin. Nobody is “hysterical:”. Patriots are calm, determined, and will defeat you, as they have always defeated enemies of America.

      @krelfurnace That’s why treacherous Democrats who tried to overthrow the election by weaponizing the FBI against a duly elected President should be lined up and shot.

      @Truth Matters Talk to the hand, crackpot moron.

      @krelfurnace lmfao, thank you for proving that being a leftard is a mental illness….

    Democrats all of a sudden want you to elect the old, white, rich, patriarchy. Tara Reade can not be believed because Joe Biden assaulted her.

      Stuff it, Traitor Trash. No real American patriot is interested in your America-hating propaganda garbage.

    • @krelfurnace #ObamaGate🤣😘

      @jeg5gom Do you really imagine that any patriot has the slightest interest in the crackpot yammerings of a turd like you, a pampered, spoiled, whining, snivelling coward who has betrayed his country? Buzz off, creep.

      @krelfurnace you cannot be a patriot and be a leftard its impossible when you support the destruction of America..Everything wrong with America started with a demon rat..

    • @krelfurnace keep responding… I love the attention… #ObamaGate

  8. I first heard of Spanish Flu in a science fiction novel, of all things; one of Robert Heinlein’s, possibly _Time Enough for Love_ (not one of his best). Even so, the narrator remarked on how little it was spoken of.

    Loved this interview. Listened to this while baking banana bread and can assure you that this was the only good thing going on in my kitchen.

    Reread it at the beginning of the lockdown in mid March.
