He also reacts to the Washington Post's reporting that more than 130 Secret Service officers have been infected with coronavirus or quarantining, calling the White House “a hotbed of infections, largely because they have thrown in the towel.” Aired on 11/13/2020.

  1. And to think republican sociopaths said it was going away November 4th

    • Mainly the fat orange one.

    • After getting a black president, the racists in this country became scared and swung the country so far right, that people don’t trust basic science anymore. Democracy is at the greatest risk it ever has been, and if you think the right is going to mellow out after Trump, think again. The alt right is growing, and they are controlling the party now.

      Didn’t it “go away in April, with the heat”??

    • sheik Yo booty | November 13, 2020 at 2:51 PM | Reply

      LOCK HIM UP 2K21

  2. Wasn’t it Trump that said it was going to magically disappear ??
    I’m so afraid that his supporters still believe his lies.

      At this rate, they all will be dead from it soon and the rest of the country can try to heal once the super-spreaders are gone. Trump is dog barking and having his suicide ‘virus bombers’ do this on purpose. No masks, no distance, no sense and fueled on pure hatred of America since their ‘God Emperor’ Trump can’t have it all to himself. He lost and they will see it dead before they would let anyone else have it.

    • Yep good old Trump said that come November 4th 2020 COVID would magically disappear! I guess he should have said that come January 20 2021 he would magically go to prison!

    • @Karen Byrd That’s the biggest issue that I have with this election I still can’t believe that 71 Million Americans voted for that orange dumpster fire! If there was any Fraud in this election I’d be looking at Trump and his GOP before anywhere else. Only a man like Trump would be able to cheat and still lose! I just refuse to believe that 71 million Americans could be so blinded and loyal to Trump who has to date done nothing to enrich our Country overall. All Trump has done since he’s been in office is spread hate and division and a racist agenda. I guess the bottom line is that there are more of us then there are of them and each time they try to rise we’ll be there to put them back down!

    • The Msm is so fn Pathetic .They can’t say Trump is Responsible for anything

    • If only Trump could magically disappear. Perhaps to jail?

  3. When the hospitals are overwhelmed & people start dropping dead in the street perhaps Trump supporters will realise that Covid-19 isn’t a Democratic hoax, as President dumb dumb implied, but l doubt it.

      @warpedjaffas1 ok. Thanks. That was a pretty good explanation which is all I wanted in the first place. I was under the assumption that once you were vaccinated you couldn’t get it. Similar to all the vaccines I had from the military as a child traveling around the world. I’ve never needed boosters and lived in areas where their population did not take vaccines making us the extreem minority. Intresting. Thanks again.

    • @Will YoujustSTFU you’re welcome. There’s a few comments here about vaccination being mandatory removes peoples rights, that’s true enough although if you don’t vaccinate your kids for current viruses they won’t be allowed in school. As you know having served in the military, vaccination is mandatory for all US service personal.

    • Will YoujustSTFU | November 13, 2020 at 5:43 PM | Reply

      @warpedjaffas1 yea, we couldn’t travel from one country to another without them. Even had to get a whole new batch before we could return to the states. This was in the late 60s and 70s. At least I didnt get that funky scar on my arm like others did with that all in one gun. I’ve been vaccinated for crap most people haven’t heard of. Oh well.

    • I can’t wait until every comment on this channel doesn’t reference Trump. You people are obsessed with Trump!

    • Margaret Irish | November 13, 2020 at 8:19 PM | Reply

      @quant turtle Yes, he did—

  4. 130 Secret Service agents infected as of today.That is reality.

  5. Trump says were rounding the curve with a quarter million COFFINS.

  6. If this was a zombie pandemic, we’d all be eating brains by now. Thanks, Trump.

  7. Moscow Mitch is the single roadblock in Congress.

  8. Thank God we don’t have a lunatic in charge for the next 2 months. Oh, wait…….

  9. Everyone who refuses to take COVID-19 seriously is giving ALL of the victims and their surviving family, friends, co-workers, neighbors, and fellow citizens the middle finger! And, I for one will never forgive them for it!

    • @sparcx86 Channel So it’s okay if all the grandparents die? What the heck are you thinking!!!

      @sparcx86 Channel no one cares what you or other high school dropouts have to opine. Go back to your meth.

      I have to put up with them at my work, many really are under a bad spell, it seems, others are just selfish and/or in a hurry. I do my best with bleach and such. Not all of these anti-maskers are Duhn heads, though – several of his supporters wear masks because they at least understand a bioweapon has been unleashed upon the globe 🌎

    • Do not forget do not forgive do not give up there are so many decent people who deserve better stay strong stay safe the world weeps for you and hopes for a better future for you. Change is coming

    • EVEN SURVIVORS have organ damage and shortened lives.

    Trump is responsible for this . He has done NOTHING to try and get it under control .

  11. fourthqtrplayer | November 13, 2020 at 2:46 PM | Reply

    trump will not do anything more on this virus!! We have to take control of the senate away from Mitch, only then will Americans see relief!!

  12. the election of trump has relegated our “shining beacon on the hill” to third world status. thank you, trump supporters

    • @Alejandro Armenta it has never proven useful for Americans to willingly support the pain of fellow Americans. in fact, your problem with magachud cultists is that they chose the pain of their fellow Americans over the benefit of America

      fact is, once you start a tit-for-tat agenda, the other side will, also. when that happens, there is nothing aside from straight up genocide that will rectify the situation; look at the middle east.

      none of this is useful. i understand that these folk will still exist once trump is gone, and i am not happy about that. however, to stoop to the level that they are willing to stoop to makes you no better than they are. if they are my “enemy,” for that reason, then you, too, would become my enemy. and there’s more of me than of you, so….

      @Eric Taylor except 1 of me is worth 10,000 Trumpanzees. After all, I got through the first grade in a year. That alone makes me an elitist.

      Trumpanzees can rot. I don’t care.

      If you want to go help them, you can pay for it. Not one penny of blue district money should be used to help any of them.

    • SGT Gardner so that won’t make sense ..I had supporting Republican Party since Ronald Reagan .i even supported Trump, past three years ..I just only turn now to Democrat because first he didn’t tell us the truth about covid 19 and how deadly it was ..than I still suppported him ..but the last straws was he didn’t do anything to get Mitch and the Republican Senate to past any of stimulus assistance to the working people like me …if tTrump had so much authority why didn’t he tell itch to give the workers those stimulus I would had voted for rim and the Republican even though I am a registered demcocrat..it is fine they give the PPE to businesses and for the rich but they also have to give assistance to the lower spectrum of the republicans base ..the one who votes from them

    • Eric Taylor oh man Eric ..you are a true Patriots American ..you conveying the statement for our Fellow Americans and the state of division among us is truly a sad state of affairs for our country..I had seen so many comment about these event and all those comment are either attacking one side or another..but your statement hit us at the heart of of beloved USA..families ..friends ..coworkers ..friends all pitting one another ..I will take your statement and pass it to all who wants to hear your words of encouragement even for the other side that one don’t agree with…..Choosing pain of fellow American to gloat over than to

    • Alejandro Armenta | November 13, 2020 at 8:46 PM | Reply

      Let’s get something straight: pretending that things will get better without doing anything about the Trumpanzees is a fantasy. It’s like telling a cancer victim to pray the disease away. It just isn’t going to happen.

      They are all in against the rest of the US. They chose their side. If they get squashed, I am not going to lose any sleep over it.

  13. Sadly a lot of people are going to pass away from Covid-19 before the end of the year because of Trump’s pathological lies…..

  14. Targeted lock downs only work when people don’t immediately go out of their own neighbourhood to find a gym, bar etc that is open then take the virus back home … people need to care for their neighbours.

  15. Republican senators are turning United States into a third world country the same as Trump said about Africa give them some money so they can live

  16. Trump’s Christmas gift to America. He should have been taken out of the white house 5 months ago, or 4 years ago.

  17. Word toTrump and enablers, “stand back and don’t stand by”.

    • 🎯💯🎯💯🎯

    • I’ve been stocking up for months and I think that I’m going to stop going to the store for the next few weeks.Everyone,stock up on pet food too.

      This is a brush fire situation where we had a shot with the garden hose. Through combination of trump,stupidity, and fatigue now the house is on fire, except your fire department isn’t getting funded because of the economy so here’s hoping you’ve got hot dogs or marshmallows because that’s it.

    “Trump deserves world class care.” I think he is the least deserving person. He caused this covid mess here in the US.

    • Alejandro Armenta | November 13, 2020 at 2:59 PM | Reply

      He deserves world class care while in his Supermax jail cell. At least until final sentencing. The same for his crime family.

    • World class mental care?

    • Trump recovers in 2 days, they give him the cure…but the masses just suffer and die…and this guy is still alive? People need to stand up to tyranny. This guy caused all of this, AND many millions who follow his lead. Make no mistake it extends to millions who still like this guy…70 million plus actually are insane for voting for him. Almost half!

  19. It’s so bad that in North Dakota, officials are telling covid-positive nurses to STAY AT WORK because they don’t have the staff to care for all the patients.
    Think about that for a second. And we call ourselves, “the greatest nation in history”? 🤔

    • We are hearing very similar news about nurses in Oregon as well. It is absolutely crazy.

    • If they are asymptomatic. Refer to the document for critical infrastructure workers on the CDC website. I am an RN. If someone is a carrier of virus they are rarely contagious. The positive *asymptomatic* people will always wear an N-95 or a PAPR at work in a healthcare setting. If they develop symptoms they must not report to work. One is most contagious in the symptomatic phase. This has to occur or there would not be enough care givers. Also, Dr Fauci has stated that pandemics are not driven by the symptomatic people… truth! It’s not stated nearly enough because it will cause confusion among the public with the mask mandates. And the highest transmission likelihood is people in the same households.

  20. Looks like the Trump Administration has just given up
