    The GOP policy of ignoring science and common sense is killing thousands.

      @Crystal Giddens You should know I can tell when toes has been step on the typical white supremacists always tell on themselves

      GOP ain’t killing no one. If Americans, as individuals don’t use their own brain, then that is their fault as individuals. No one is repsonsible for yoruself but you….your life is no one else’s responsibility.

      Snoop alert, you really are world-class stupid, first, Obama saved the American auto industry, brought the unemployment rate from 10.1% to 4.1%. Republicans have been anti union supporting “right to work laws, and fighting passage of increasing minimum wage. Obama care insured 31 million more people, and would have done more had he not attempted to garner bipartisan support. All of this is irrelevant now. The only point is Trump is more concerned with” recovering” Wall Street. The question for all Americans is, are Wall Street profits for multinational corporations and the wealthiest individuals worth sacrificing another 100,000 American lives before the election?

    DeSantis should resign immediately. He ignores science and listens to Trump’s “Gut.”

    • Rebubs ignore few ‘scientists’ and ‘doctors’ that wsere placed in their positions by people like Soros and Rothschild, whose only agenda it to be your overlord.

  3. This is why Trump wants to have his own people managing the numbers. They plan to lie about the number of infected, and the number of deaths. They know very well that it’s mostly poor black and brown people that are dying, and so for them, this is like a purge. I hope that we’ll see more and more doctors, nurses and scientists speak out and tell us the truth. Now, they want us to put our children at risk!

      I hope the hospitals choose to send their information to both the CDC AND HHS.

    • Stfu

    • @Eliza Grogan most of us are just fine and will remain fine.
      It’s our leaders that are losing their minds.
      They lie about cases in a huge way!
      Most hospital Ers are empty or are as per usual. Don’t believe all the devastating reports! Just like China. There weren’t floods . They opened the flood gates and so has the USA via case tallies

      Free Couch ER numbers are not relevant.

    • @Free Couch you are in an alternative world that’s why you don’t believe the statics ! Don’t be another Chuck Wollery , one day Covid19 is a hoax , three days later his son has the virus ! Don’t speak too soon !I hope your behind is not as big as a couch 🤮🤮🤮

  4. Crazy how they still want to host the RNC in Florida! smh They should do the RNC in Gov. Ron DeSATAN’s back yard! This way they can super spread all they want & bring them confederate blankets & have a sleep over!

  5. Every other countries have no problem with months of lockdown, staying at home and wearing masks. In the end, we managed to flatten the curve and open our countries safely.

    Test. Trace. Isolate. The strategy works. Staying at home helps. Wearing mask helps.

    Why is it so difficult for Americans to just do the same? What is so great about your individual freedom that you are wiling to sacrifice everybody elses’ lives?

    If suppressing data that kills more people isn’t terrorism then what is? WTF is GOP tryin to accomplish? It ain’t political anymore..

    • I say it how it is.

    • Lynn paulovich | July 17, 2020 at 1:53 PM | Reply

      Suppressing data is exactly what the Chinese are accused of. That’s Trumps direction. That’s his goal, dictator Trump.

      Its all about the markets and national flex, capitalism, National empiricalism… Currencie’s, investment’s, free market, global power.

    • The GOP’s actions start making a lot more sense when you assume their top priorities are draining America of its wealth and consolidating power, resulting in a dictatorship.

      Republican “patriotism” is nothing more than a thin disguise for authoritarianism. Bend the knee, don’t question us, and don’t listen to anyone but your leader and his approved news sources. The most frustrating part is how easy it is to look at other authoritarian regimes and see the similarities.

      People need to stop looking for imaginary conspiracies and start looking at the blatantly obvious one happening in full view right in front of us.

  7. But Trump said he fixed it. So where is the problem? lol… President Stump.

  8. The Spanish Flu killed 600+k Americans in years not months. We’re at 139k in months not years. We’re phucked! #25thAmmendmentNow!!!

    • @Ralas Mom and talk to the electoral college and Putin.

    • @Ralas Mom we as in every American who didn’t push our friends to vote when they sat at home. We as in every American who allowed Fox and Republicans to lie to the citizens for decades. We as in every American who didn’t push back on Trumps fascism from when he announced his run. We as in every American who loves thus country and instead blames others because we wouldn’t stand up to a bully like Trump. We’re all guilty here because we allowed this to happen.

    • @s b exactly!

    • @Some PersonI got 4 of my family members to flip. But you can’t make everyone flip. My 60 yo husband registered to vote for the first time. It took me 34 years & Trump to convince him it mattered but he did it! Let’s just agree & be united huh? Trump’s divided us enough. Hope you & your are well. I lost my nephew to covid. Ironically a Trump supporter I couldn’t flip..💔

    • @Jim Hibbits correct Spanish flu was a lot more deadly. If you had Spanish flu at 8 in morning by 9 that evening you was dead.

  9. Trump has his round table “praise me” meetings with big business. It’s time he have a round table with these doctors from around the nation…time to “face the music” Donny.

  10. Dr. Melendez and Dr. Bernard are great Americans. Rational, humble professionals like them should be in charge of our country, not the self-aggrandizing clowns who are currently in power.

    • I’m a Canadian watching your situation in horror and hoping for all Americans that Trump just walks out of the white house in Nov. in a tantrum like disgruntled employees do. And the reason I wanted to comment on yours was that I watched the whole video too and my respect for them as people grew as the video went on 🙂

    Trump and the whole of the GOP leadership have turned America into a genocidal killing field. They’ve had SIX MONTHS to avoid this. Shame on every single one of them for their wilful incompetence.

    Medical personnel are having their lives played with by politicians!

  14. I live in a European country. We start taking the situation serious when it became clear that hospitals and medical personel couldn’t handle it anymore. We did social distancing and stayed home to ease the pressure of medical personel. At facebook we posted pics and stories of doctors and other medical personel who were visually exhausted. That is how our mindset started to change. Now our curve has flattened.

    Lump fans only believe what Lump says. His fans are like children in the way that you tell a child blue is red, children will believe blue is red.

  17. Why there is no consequences or action taken if someone of power lies all the time and spread fear and misinformation this an American thing?

      I don’t get it either. I lost faith in the republican party.

    • orange moon glows | July 17, 2020 at 5:24 PM | Reply

      the consequences are supposed to be the checks and balances system in balance. executive, judicial and legislative branches of govt are supposed to be checks on one another. but, republicans, who control the executive, judicial and senate (not congress), are not stopping the president. they are putting party and ideology and power before country. the only way this can be stopped is by voting them out of office and possibly looking into ways to draft laws to prevent this in the future.

    I have never seen so many Republicans get in line behind any man like they have for 45. In order to remain in 45’s good graces, they are willing to let hundreds of thousands of Americans die from COVID-19. It doesn’t matter if they are white, black, brown, young, middle aged, or old. The ” death panels” that the Republicans were talking about years ago have now become a reality. What’s next, the Hunger Games?

    • Don’t be surprised if Republicans jump off the Trump ship in September. The Blue Wave is mainly the ripple from him jumping into the political pool, and it is going to sink the GOP in November.

  20. Why is it that Pro-Life conservatives are the ones who refuse to wear a mask? They will go to the ends of the earth to tell a woman she must carry, birth, and raise a child for the next 20 or so years, but claim their civil liberties were violated because they were asked to wear a mask for 20 minutes while grocery shopping. It is just hypocrisy at the highest level.

    • Grenadier 11 | July 17, 2020 at 5:04 PM | Reply

      As a pro-life conservative Christian, I fully agree. Both the left and right wing media narratives, seemingly in opposition, are coordinating this train-wreck together.

    • Because they are lying hypocrites.

      @Jimmy Lewis How does your reflection look these days?

      Socially Conservative, that is. The Republican party’s (edit – and the Pharisee factions’) indifference to the poor and needy disgusts me.
