  1. Donald J Trump is killing this country

  2. Biden 2020

  3. Sorry it’s not over. Donald J Trump is getting better, America is not. He has no plan, he is a failure. Please vote him out, so America can get help.

  4. brilliantly said, ty dr moch and dr maddow. we must pay attention, follow the nih guidelines! and we must vote out the party that has refused over and over to protect our health, our very lives! vote blue from top to bottom of the ballot!

    • richard maddow is not a medical doctor

    • @Paul Wilson get some new material little one.

    • I had Covid you cannot scare me. Data collection is garbage, because few are getting tested because we don’t trust the government with our health no matter who thinks they are in charge. Wisconsin has over 1,000,000 hunters with guns, the government is PERMITTED by the people to rule only as long as they behave themselves per the people’s wishes.

  5. Hopefully none of these ppl re waiting on Kin Jong Donny to help. He has too much herd mentality to & lying worry about. Hopefully Biden will be ready to go as soon as taking office.

  6. What is Trump doing…holding super spreader events!

    Another lockdown is going to be necessary. The hospitals can only handle so much

    • @CynAnne1 For what? Disagreeing with you? Well, I guess people should just start flagging all of your comments. What a baby!!!! 😆

      The hospitals were empty during the 1st lockdown. Wake up moron.

    • @Dave Deflection.

    • The Trump trolls are getting desperate. I’m in lockdown in Australia. We had only 10 new cases in the last 24 hours in a city of 5 million people. It’s taken 2 months to get the second wave down to that level. I don’t know how you would fare with the case levels there. It’s unimaginable to us. I can only wish the people in the USA luck. That country is a petri dish.

    • @janeen harris – And they think we’re going to click on their delusional ‘infowarzez’ videos… 😂

    Trump has deliberately flouted science, social distancing and made a mockery of masks, refusing to wear a mask in situations where it was deemed necessary by hospital authorities and medical consultants.
    During the onset of COVID-19 Trump repeatedly lied to the American people about the severity of the virus, repeatedly thumbing his nose in the face of science with ridiculous pseudoscience claims that could potentially endanger others, over 200,000 American citizens are now dead with the numbers climbing due to his inaction.
    Statistics were not on Trumps side as he openly encouraged people to attend rallies without social distancing and other protective measures in place. He’s now tested positive with the all too real possibility that prior to diagnosis, of having spread the virus to countless others through his selfishness and willful ignorance of scientific evidence.
    Trump has brought this upon himself and he only has himself to blame due to his own arrogance and hubris. It’s not the past lies that is the issue, but the fact is; in the future everything Trump states will be suspect and questioned just like the words of Conley, his supposed “Doctor”, there is nothing transparent about that administration, the trust has long been destroyed and Pence helped drive the nail in the coffin of his Vice Presidential term. We need Biden and Harris to repair the damage done to our global reputation!
    Is another four years of chaos, lies and deception what we deserve as American Citizens?

    • Mj light. You are one sick kitty if you truly believe that complete nonsense you just spouted. Go back to playing with your QAnon crybaby, flat earth looneys who believe Trump defecates rainbows and fluffy unicorns. We in the real world have to navigate the sh*tty reality bequeathed to us by your Almighty (Over)Lord and Master.

    • so if Trump killed 200k+ Americans, who is responsible for the 800k+ deaths world wide?

    • @Nick Harvey February 24, 2020. Nancy Pelosi visits Chinatown in San Francisco. Tells the people to come on down, there’s nothing to be afraid of. Video available right here on YouTube.

    • @Nick Harvey I don’t just believe it, I know it to be fact. Did you go visit Chinatown when Nancy Pelosi told you how safe it was on February 24, 2020? Some of just don’t believe EVERYTHING is Trump’s fault. Hit your YouTube search button. Search defining a Covid death. The first video that pops up is Dr. Ngozi Ezike, Illinois Department of Public Health, telling you, from her own mouth, any death regardless of how it occurred is a Covid death if they test positive.

    • YouTube search button, enter “defining a Covid death” click on the first video from Dr. Ngozi Ezike, any death, regardless of cause, is a Covid death if they tested positive at the time of death. Find out for yourself.

  9. How many COVID rallies did Trump hold in ND, SD, MN, WI…?

    • Every state, I saw you there Maga!

    • @Harold Moore so. Dunbass. are saying you dont follow the science?

    • Rolf Xristos first learn how to spellcheck. Second, the only person you believe in is Trump. He is all you have.

    • @Harold Moore good one ! 👍

    • @Rolf Xristos now I can completely understand why your saying this one. Although, Nabarro came out today saying that he was taken out of Context and that the entirety of his quote was never relayed. That IMPOTUS seized opportunity to twist his words to fit his narrative. Lock downs are necessary in areas that are experiencing “hot outbreaks” where rate of communal transmission is so high that other mitigation techniques are no longer effective. Lock downs alone will fix this epidemic but combined with other techniques they can be used to keep community impacts minimal. His point on lock downs being harmful is in the context of people that may already be struggling financially will be impacted ten fold without aid from their governments if a temporary lock down is required.

      These are not my opinions but actual quotes and summaries from article below.

      And with a 3 hour drive to the nearest hospital like this woman talked about the cost will be even higher.

    Let’s give a big shout out to all the 65,000 folks who showed up maskless for the biker rally in Sturgis in the second week of August, who picked up a little coronavirus and took it home to spread .
    Now that the midwest is just blooming with virus, y’all know who you can thank.

    • Denial of a virus is not a river in Egypt!

    • I had Covid you cannot scare me. Data collection is garbage, because few are getting tested because we don’t trust the government with our health no matter who thinks they are in charge. Wisconsin has over 1,000,000 hunters with guns, the government is PERMITTED by the people to rule only as long as they behave themselves per the people’s wishes.

    Ignore the polls and trolls!
    Vote too big to rig!
    Vote country over party!
    Vote too save democracy in America!
    💙🇺🇸Biden/Harris 2020🇺🇸💙

  13. √ According to new reporting by Vanity Fair, senior adviser Jared Kushner headed up a special task force that was focused on putting together a comprehensive national testing plan —  But the plan never saw the light of day, reportedly because members of the task force thought it wouldn’t help Trump with his reelection and believed the pandemic would affect Democratic areas worse. The source also suggested that some close to Kushner thought it was best to hold back and blame governors.

    Hey America, the scum you elect seem to get well looked after when they get Covid infection.

      You are not posting from within the USA.. What country is it?

      @She’s – bet you’re not worried about the Russian bots trolling on behalf of your Madman in Chief, tho, are ya?!?!?! Unfortunately for you, YouTube is still a free speech democracy, unlike Amerikkka – deal with it, sweetie. 😘

  15. Here in the Southern Hemisphere we have just come through our winter with a non-existent Flu season. That is because we were social distancing, hand washing etc. There has been literally a handful of flu cases in NZ. As a result, our hospitals have been empty and have been able to catch up all the elective surgery that was postponed during our lockdown and also do more surgery.

    After seeing all of the evidence and heard all the experts the people of North Dakota proudly chose to take their cues from Donald Trump. Living in a neighboring state I don’t want their ignorance and arrogance to overburden the health care system in our state. North Dakota needs to deal with their own failures.

    To see the suffering that the healthcare workers have gone through for the last nine months is heartbreaking. Donald Trump does not care about these people at all. Incomprehensible. To you people out there who feel it’s beneath you to wear a mask, think about those folks in the hospital that day in and day out save our lives. Don’t be selfish put on a mask. Thank you from the bottom of my heart to all the healthcare workers. Today. Right now. Donald Trump is the most selfish human being on this planet. He’s first in line and his children are lined up right behind him. We can make these monsters disappear. VOTE

  18. Trump tests negative, now the tests cant be trusted. I love it.

  19. The numbers are higher than what’s being reported in Florida.
