    • @SouthSide Chicago same can be said for your side, same old crap, none of you are orginal. Maybe that’s because you all sit so close together in the troll boiler room, right cozy bear?

    • @SouthSide Chicago “Literally”. Gosh.

      @Kathy Weis I just gave you facts, what I get in return? Troll. orangeman. and everything else LMAOCovid deaths are the lowest they’ve been since this started yet your fake media outlets are saying that it is surging LMAO. Children are dying in our streets and these democratic mayors refuse help. Keep burning American flags and watch Trump’s support grow! god Bless America and death to antifa and anyone else who hates this country.

    • @SouthSide Chicago i gave you facts as well, you are a troll, you have no content. Now run along to your maga rally, have fun and don’t forget to sign the release form.

    Let’s put American money where WE are.

    It’s time to pay back our Americans with the Social Security Funds absconded for the budget by Republican Politicians over decades.

  8. I like that the MJ show discussed COVID, but then stepped aside to give room enough to let the black folks discuss the black issues with/ about the book. Something that small and insignificant speaks volumes.

    Good question Mika!!! Why was he doing comedy shows during COVID???? That was STUPID and SELFISH!!

    • Anthony C Brown | July 6, 2020 at 2:13 PM | Reply

      @Anita Bracy If he was sick enough to collapse / pass out on a stage, he should not have been performing – full stop. Are you condoning this sort of behavior during a pandemic? How many people had DL been in close proximity during that event where he was wearing no mask and did not indicate his condition? I’m pretty sure you would not want a worker at a restaurant serving you food to do as DL and come to work ill and not disclose his condition.

    • I am VERY glad she asked that question. Clearly, the club was still too crowded even though he stated they cleared out 1/3 of the room. Additionally, most of the attendees were NOT masked, and they really should have been. DL could have made that request, and they would have cooperated. Having said all of this, he is exactly correct with the problem of not having a central message from the country’s leadership. Just pathetic. The numbers of cases are increasing rapidly, deaths are still occurring, affected age groups are NOT just seniors, etc., It is just out of control. Do we have to hold on and hopefully get Biden in office before REAL change takes place? That’s January 2021!

      @Anthony C Brown He didnt have any symptoms. He didn’t actually pass out from covid. It was pure exhaustion from working. Maybe Dallas and Nashville covid regulations shouldn’t be so lax then as well.

    • I was at that show! Now I got the covid and I’m suing dl. I want 150 million…

    • Get your head out of your a**. He said he was tired. Probably from working hard. That is not the same thing as feeling sick.

  10. All Trump & co. heard is that he ran 5 miles, soooo, .Covid 19 isn’t so bad cause he was able to run 5 miles.

    • He’s obviously healthy to begin with. Those obese fools don’t stand a chance.

    • #reallygraceful #setrosvlog #rissflex #amazingpolly

      SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – As coronavirus cases continue to increase across the United States, health officials and Democrat politicians seem to be using that statistic to fear monger and justify closure. Furthermore, Dr. Atlas emphasized the fact that the death rates are not going up, despite the increase in cases. “And that’s what really counts, are we getting people who are really sick and dying, and we’re not, and when we look at the hospitalizations, yes, hospitals are more crowded, but that’s mainly due to the re-installation of medical care for non COVID-19 patients.”

    November 3!

  12. He’s so right it seems like every man for himself. There has never been so much caos because of our orange president.

    Trump has become drunken with power. But using it to spread hate, that will destroy him. Trump do not take this Covid-19 seriously. He’s more concern about his rallies to spread hate.

    Exactly, get rid of “qualified immunity”. That makes cops “the judge and the jury”, now how is that? Shame on the people who put such a thing in place!

    • @Dave Schultz “qualified immunity” is almost unique to USA. Why do you think that it is appropriate for policemen to have no civil responsibility? It is a weird anomaly in the civilized world. In my country (Czechia), the president has this kind of immunity and it is also considered relict of times long past.

    • @Avenue Rd
      Yeah it protects black cops too, but make everything racially motivated…

    • KC JONES Doesn’t matter what color a cop is they shouldn’t have qualified immunity. Why do people think bc one black persons says or does something all black people follow . That’s ridiculous and insulting .

    • @KC JONES its still a white male supremacy lynch law regardless of whom administrates it.

    • That policy was ingrained into the very fabric of America’s beginnings. Its the same policy which gave slave masters, immunity from crimes against humanity, and now, they just call it “qualified immunity”

  15. D.L. Hughley, how true, humor does reveal truth, doesn’t it!

  16. The ad hoc public health response mirrors our hc non-sytem: corporate, for-profit, ad hoc, consumers are left to navigate and suffer poor, untimely care.

  17. One of the unsung hero countries is Jamaica: 721 cases, 10 deaths. They’re following the WHO guidelines in detail.

    Why was he travelling and performing so widely? He could have endangered so many lives. The very fact that he tried to fly on a commercial airliner beggars belief. This, folks, is why we don’t want Americans travelling outside the US.

  19. i love D.L. Hughley. he is a great man, a hiarious comedian, and a honest man. I look forward to reading and learing more from your book.Thankyou for being you, and , Yes, We All Are One !

  20. ✊🏻 ✌🏻 I surrender.

    Stay safe and get better soon, D.L.
