  1. It’s mutations make it spread better. Be careful until we know the vaccine is working.

      @Maureen Peterson Amen Maureen. At this rate it will take ten yrs to vaccinate the country. Why hasn’t dumb Donald used the Defence production act to get the vaccine in peoples arms???

      @Constituent A Either way the airports are crowded and people are asked not to travel!

    • @Maureen Peterson In other words, you don’t think that the half of the population that couldn’t afford to travel even if they wanted to are actually Americans.

    • Maureen Peterson | December 29, 2020 at 10:11 PM | Reply

      @Constituent A Doesn’t matter the nationality – people were told not to travel – touchy hey! It’s spreading through the country like wildfire! How can they not see that! I don’t care if it offends your sensibilities- people are dying and being asked to stay home and they are running around the country like nothing is happening! I don’t care what the nationality is! They need to stop spreading it!

    • @Maureen Peterson No, dumfuk, you are saying it is ALL of them, and it ISN’T.

    Trump has two parts of a brain: ‘left’ and ‘right’.

    In the left side there’s nothing right.
    And in the right side there’s nothing left.

  4. Mike Pence in charge of the coronavirus task force.
    Sitting in his hands.

  5. ‘There’s Nothing Stopping The Spread Of This Virus’
    For this trump and his minions MUST PAY!

  6. Gosh … if only Mitch in senate did not block witnesses to impeach Trump things would be different today. trump is playing Golf this entire lame duck session which is criminal.

      Well he did find time to Pardon 41 Felons. I’m white but can you imagine the outrage if Obama had pardoned 41 Black people? 75 mil Americans support the worst president ever that blows my mind.

    • @patrick oneill I’m stunned by his supporters. it’s like World War Z.

  7. Let em all fecking get sick. WHAT YOU DO IS YOUR BUSINESS, UNTIL!!!! YOU FECK WITH MY WELL-BEING!!!!

    • I’m feeling ok with that.. as long as they don’t expect medical treatment. If they want the virus and get it, congratulations to them.

  8. The real number is not 19 million. More like 100 million in my pespective. I know trump supporters dont go out to get tested if they are not sick. They dont take it serious.

  9. Meanwhile, Trump wants to have a massive hate rally in d.c. on Jan 6. None of the trump mouth breather tourists will wear a mask, as usual, and they break all public health laws in d.c.

  10. Trump said after Nov 4 2020 no one would be talking about the Coronavirus. What Trump meant to say is Republicans and himself would not be taking about the pandemic.

    • Well since election isn’t over they gotta still campaign for potato head 30 days after it will be miracle in the media Biden saved us from the virus numbers are going down it’s a Biden miracle lol

  11. brilliantly said, ty dr kass and mr o’donnell.

    If any of us were the president right now, I don’t think we would be enjoying ourselves at a golf course.

  13. Trump supporters having a party on the sinking Titanic.

    Why can’t we just _ban_ unnecessary flight travel?
    Oh, yeah, Profits for Corporations. (And that pesky little thing called freedom.)

  15. I hear people talking about endless lockdowns, but it doesn’t seem like a full on lockdown has occurred in your country with everyone doing it for at least three months. That would be the only thing that could actually slow this spread.

    • I know you’re right.

    • @Constituent A Melbourne Australia had a second wave that threatened to get out of control, went into full on lockdown for 112 days, now months later 58 days without a single case. Yes lockdowns, if done properly, work. Of course difference here is unemployed and people whose jobs had been furloughed were getting continued and reasonable financial support from the govt. that prevents some of the desperation in having to go out and work.

  16. The world back in the day of Spanish flu did a better job than in 2020😷🙄

      Agreed, Just goes to show what a waste of oxygen Trump is.

    • @patrick oneill no money in virus for trump🤯😷⌛👶🍼

    • patrick oneill | December 29, 2020 at 9:49 AM | Reply

      @carl cullen What’s really funny to me is Trump probably would have been re-elected if he just told the truth. He knew virus was on its way, if he said to America lets all pull together and mask up we can control this Trump Virus. When he finally did the shut down if he would have actually kept it shut down until we flattened the curve we would be in a better place. Bye Felicia.

    • Money as allways with trump before lives,an cost him his presidency 100%

  17. How disrespectful to the front line medical workers trying to keep people alive.

  18. Trump knew it where a pandemic before it where a pandemic in interview with John swan🙄😷👶🍼⌛

    “…possible January surge of Covid-19…” motivate us, the people of America, to redouble our efforts to rapidly find out at any given moment, including even while On-Line, who among us are unwittingly contagious (i.e. pre-symptomatic or asymptomatic) in order to #ConvinceItForward for them to call their doctor and to self-quarantine per CDC guidelines in hopes of stopping this pandemic instead of having more #MourningInAmerica even for the worse-case scenario of the #UKvariant strain(s) mutations and others like the #Cluster5Mink mutations rendering current vaccines no longer effective.

    The mask wearing alone won’t do it.
    You need a full country Lockdown to delay the virus and make space in the hospitals.
