    My aunt survived covid, but lost three of her fingers on her left hand. It’s a nasty disease that was criminally mis-managed by the Trump Administration. Make him pay November 3rd.

  4. brilliantly said, ty ms berrent and mr williams. we need to hear about the long term health deficits more often! that may finally wake people up!

    • Very optimistic.
      There is no cure for stupidity and ignorance. You can smack the truth in their faces with a sledgehammer and they would not see it… 🤷‍♂️

    Every republican president has given a recession but this takes the cake 🤕

    When will Americans learn ?

    • Do you know who repealed the Glass Steagall act? Well, if you did, then you would know who caused the banks collapse and why they did. But keep blaming Republicans.

      the 2008 Recession was caused by the Democrats and their Subprime Mortgage SCAM

    • @Keith Johnson – Shelby GT500 The 1992 recession was caused by Reagan, and Bush Sr was left holding the bag…The REPUBLICANS had command of the house and Senate during most of those Clinton years, and Bush Jr sat and watched for 8 years..We all know REPUBLICANS want low interest rates and an unregulated stock market… It’s good for capitalism and business..Who are you kidding?…LOL

    • @C Dub devdido a desregulaçao criada pelos neo liiberais que sao na maioria republicanos

    How much did it cost to tax-payers for 278 visits to golf course which Trump took since inauguration?

    141 millions!

  7. ??? I wonder what his final medical bill will be. Does survival/recovery depend on the level of care and therapeutics you can afford ???

    • Stella Rocquie | October 21, 2020 at 1:14 AM | Reply

      No. Safe practices and quarantine, unless you are critical, which Trump and Fatboy Christie were not.

      Chris Christy was, actually. He was in the Intensive Care Unit for over a week. Twump received steroids reserved for severe patients with lung infections.

      $30,000 USD is about right for someone in “severe” state. Includes a couple weeks to a month in Hospital. O2 and maybe intubation.

      Twump’s medical bill was around $100,000 USD including medivac and experimental monoclonal antibodies and Remdesivir and 12 of the nation’s best doctors. Of course *HE didn’t pay a penny* .

    The long term effects are just so insane and scary.

    • @Desert Pirate dude…. I’ve literally already explained in the comments how stupid it is to bring up trump. Also, i trust science. But only when it is actual science. Did you know that the oh so glorious scientist, Lord Anthony Fauci Esquire, once said masks are pointless? You realize science isn’t perfect, right? Science told us that florida would be underwater 10 years ago. If you bring up trump out of nowhere i will then know you aren’t a serious person interested in serious conversation. I’d also like you to point out what you think was incorrect instead of making baseless assumptions. Go.

    • @Roman And yet we are supposed to listen to a guy who told us to inject bleach and when he gets sick, he goes rushing to the scientists. Why go to the doctors if he knows better? And why have 10 doctors if it isn’t serious? Dr. Fauci is an honorable non partisan scientist who has served in 6 administrations and was given a medal by George Bush, a republican, and yet we are supposed to listen to Trump, who lied to us by saying it wasn’t serious when he told Woodward on tape how serious it was back in February. As far as global warming, turn on your news and watch what’s happening in Colorado, California, Australia(last year), Cambodia, India, Thailand, Houston/Louisiana, Siberia, the Amazon. You want me to keep going, or are they all not raking properly?

    • @Desert Pirate you lost me at your first sentence cause it was a lie. Trump NEVER said to inject bleach. If you fix your first error I’ll keep reading.

      People who cling to the fact that in the beginning ,when we did not have enough N95 masks, the task force said not to go and buy up all of the masks, are too drunk on the anti science bandwagon. This Roman fellow won’t get it until he gets it..

    • @Shawn Mahaffey i know you wanted to get your jab in without me noticing but i still got a notification. I get what you’re saying but Fauci didn’t just say “masks aren’t necessary” and leave it at that. He went into detail about how they don’t work outside of a healthcare setting.

  9. When Donald got infected with the coronavirus, where did he go? He went to the medical experts at Walter Reed. When you get sick, or need an operation, where do you go?  Do you go to the medical experts, or do you go to Trump? When someone is diagnosed with a disease like cancer, should they listen to Trump, or should they listen to the medical experts? If you’re having a baby, do you go to the medical experts, or do you go to Trump? When your child gets sick, do you take them to Trump, or do you take them to the medical experts?
    But now Trump is trying to convince us that we should listen to him, instead of listening to the medical experts. Why that would make sense to anyone is beyond comprehension.

  10. This lady is smart and brave. Vascular makes sense to me. The variety of issues and areas of body that are attacked seemed so random but now it is clear. Please wear a mask. It is hard to understand after months and months that people have not figured this out. I equate it with telling people not to smoke. They think they will escape the harmful effects, it won’t happen to me. Covid isn’t real until it happens to you or a loved one.

    • it’s more like drinking and driving, not only do you put yourself at risk but you put innocent others at risk too.

      Covid attacks smooth muscle. That includes heart, lungs, blood vessels. She is correct. She obviously read-up.

      CoV attaches to a sugar on the outside of cells and injects genetics into any cells that have ACE2 proteins. Those “ACE2 inhibitors” people take: yeah, imagine unregulated dosage combined with a viral attack. Blood pressure goes haywire.

      And then it hijacks the immune system and causes it to attack a persons own body in some cases.

      It infuriates me seeing people downplaying Covid just because *they* don’t know. Like anyone is born with Covid knowledge?

      Either read-up or listen to the doctors. What’s so hard about wearing a mask that doctors wear 365 days a year? People are such whiney babies.

      Anyways, point is yes it is vascular ( and she did a good job with it.

    • @One by Land, Two if by Sea Run if by Air Very well said.

  11. Crush Inverted Totalitarianism | October 21, 2020 at 1:59 AM | Reply

    My guess is she is fed up with him.

    • yeah, more than ten years ago . . . just hangs around for a somewhat stable life for her son, Barron . . . and maybe a few perks here and there. she’s no angel, you know.

    According to the orange clown president, injecting disinfectant is surely a cure for COVID. Right?

    • Keith Johnson - Shelby GT500 | October 21, 2020 at 2:54 AM | Reply

      it sure beats having a Black Socialist for a president that gave us Record Bad Economy

    • Trump suggested clinical trials, not to actually do it. Lysol put a statement to the public that injecting it will not cure COVID.

    “Long Covid” is very real.
    And very common.
    You don’t want Covid;
    It’s Russian Roulette.

  14. Key word PACKED rally in Pennsylvania.

  15. Thank you so much for speaking up.

    When it comes Melania ” I really don’t care….do you?”

  17. Wow, what a deeply caring, empathetic, society minded and humble person. I was kinda blown away by her big heart.

  18. Totally frightening….I have always believed that it can be a deadly disease but I had no idea it was a vascular disease as opposed to respiratory. Thank you so much for sharing this.

  19. I LIKE to hear facts about this, instead of politics.

  20. She is right. My sister had no underlying conditions. Covid-19 caused her to have a stroke. 44yrs old. Take care everyone 😷
