  1. Side effect: nightmares of Trump being president again

      @MB Trump don’t forget the replublicans

    • @R.J. Holt You never heard of DOMINION because when you watch the Commie news networks they keep you in the dark and only tell you what they want you to know. Just like China and Russia and N Korea.

    • @joboygbp lol what. I don’t watch news period. Why do I have know about Dominion or any other news outlet. You watch your type of news and I watch whatever I need to watch ok. Thats the thing people get caught up with this social media crap. I seen a election and only one person got 270 just like when Obama won election my first vote and Trump won 2016 and now Biden. So stay off what I watch. Ya getting to caught up in ya feelings over this election crap. You win some and you lose some. Get over it!!! Ya just sore looser at this point.

    • @R.J. Holt Who do you think has more influence in an election? Those voting or those counting votes? If you can’t trust the voting process you might as well not have a vote or a country. And right now 71 million people are watching the cheating that’s going on. But you would have no clue if you do not watch news or if you just watch The 2 major Fake News Networks. The left controls almost all news sources. Facebook, Twitter, Google, YouTube, CNN, and MSNBC. They sensor conservatives. I don’t believe you don’t watch any news, Sorry. There was/is MASSIVE DEMOCRAT VOTER FRAUD going on. There is no way Dementia Joe pulled more votes than any candidate of all time especially when he couldn’t even get 30 people to show up for his rallies. The voter irregularities are showing up all over. 90% turnout in Wisconsin. More people registered to vote than there are people of voting age. It will all come out and it is coming out.

    • @B woodward 💀

    How much of this spread stems from Trump’s rallys? Or the President dismissing masks? How many deaths rest on his shoulders? Trump has blood on his hands.

    • @B woodward We are talking about SARS2. The voting is over.

    • @B woodward Really? Check out McConnell and his Chinese wife who is the secretary of transportation. First off because of her, KY gets more than they put into the government coffers. KY is known as the “bailout state”. For the last 4 years, his state has gotten $148 billion more than it gave to Washington in revenue. Meanwhile New Jersey got $71.7 billion less than it sent, New York $116.2 billion less. And trump did his Saudi Arabia properties with Chinese construction companies, not US companies. Why? Well Ivanka got her trademarks rushed thru PDQ. And not to mention the Chinese now hold the majority of US debt. Since trump took office, they have been buying up treasury bills in substantial increase from previous and used them to invest in properties in the US. Gee could those properties be linked to trump and his family? Oops, looks like it.🤔Trump has ballooned the deficit from $500 billion when he took office to well over 3 trillion at this writing, expected to hit close to 4 trillion by year’s end. So the Chinese r getting richer. And Russia? The indictments prove undue influence. So trump is guilty of fraternizing with the enemy while in office. Biden is not. Because even if the hunter Biden conspiracy theories were true (yet unproven), as a private citizen, joe Biden is entitled to talk to who he wants, invest with who he wants. It’s not an issue 😉

    • @Em Andem Newsmax, Lt. General Thomas McInerey. We got you.

    • @Bad Fairy Newsmax, Lt. General Thomas McInerney.We got you.

    • @B woodward thanks.


    • @skaybaltimore i know but look at it like this his refusal to conceed puts him in a where people will say he isnt mentally stable

    • @Nic Moreno He ISN’T mentally stable. LOL. But unless Pence initiates a 25th Amendment removal, sadly, he is still POTUS. What a mess.

    • @skaybaltimore yea it is hopefully this situation dont get worse

    • @Nic Moreno Most of us have been saying that for the past 4 years. And yet…like clockwork…Trump always seems to manage to dredge up yet another new low level of chaos and insanity. Let’s just hope for the best, but prepare our minds for the worst. I’m no Joe Biden fan, but just listening to him talk CIVILLY and diplomatically was so refreshing after the daily bombardments from Trump — it’s sad that the bar has been set so low, but it is what it is. Peace.

    • My cat accomplished much the same feat, B…and she did it *all at once.*
      #TopThatAmy 🤣

  4. Good job North Dakota. Maybe another motorcycle ralley.

    The virus is mutating as we speak. The notion of herd immunity could turn out to be a non-starter.

    • riloh58 Have you ever heard of the polio virus? By medical standards it is considered to be eradicated.

    • Jason Kelly – Yes. I have heard of polio but, It’s not a coronavirus. Nor is influenza. Or coronaviruses and rhinoviruses that cause the common cold. Certain viruses/parasites and bacterial diseases do lend themselves to eradication but to date we have never eradicated a coronavirus (I am open to correction on this if I’m mistaken).

    • riloh58 no I completely agree. And it could take decades to do so. Polio has been around for how long? (And I just got that freakin shot again 2 wks ago!). We have a long road ahead for sure! No quick answers either.

    • riloh58 but I also dont believe any shut down will make any significant difference. Maybe only keeping the numbers at a certain level across the span – but decreasing the rates of infection or overall mortality rate? No I dont think so. Cant close the world forever.

    • Positive signs from Pfizer but you are right it is a long road ahead. Lockdowns generally help to halt exponential growth and avoid overwhelming health services and funeral services. And slowing spread down can buy some time for development of treatments. But if no vaccine or effective therapy is forth coming then the end result will probably be similar in the end in terms of stats yes.

  6. The real pandemic is the ill health of most people. In fact, given this fact, mass vaccination may end up being a catastrophe

    side effect: I think I’ve been injected with something that can track me, know all my movements, my interests, views, friends, finances…no wait, that’s my phone

  8. As a nurse I would wait to take a vaccine until side effects are known. But that’s just me.

    • As a nurse I will wait until the CDC authorizes use of the vaccine.
      I work with covid-19 patients on a regular basis.
      And too many die unless death is a side effect of the vaccine I’m all for it.

    • I’ll be taking the second Shingles vaccine in a few weeks. I’ve heard that the side effects of that one are pretty rough, too. Apparently this is quite common with two-dose vaccines. Personally, having a sore arm and feeling lousy for a day or two are a price worth paying for getting my life back, for not being worried about getting infected every time I come within ten feet of another human being, for not having to get slugged in the gut every morning by those horrific numbers of cases, hospitalizations, and deaths — and being able to smile at people and having them smile back at me!!!
      Meanwhile, here’ s a great article on why we should be more ready than ever to do what we need to do to stay safe, now that a vaccine is on the horizon. There’s a light at the end of the tunnel — let’s hunker down until we get there! https://www.nytimes.com/2020/11/10/opinion/coronavirus-vaccine.html

    • @Bill Braaten stay safe Bill. I worry about all front liners in this pandemic.

    • @Bill Braaten 💙🐾💙🙏💙Thank You Mr. Bill Braaten for your service to our country and her people. Blessings and Blessed Be💙🦅💙🙏💙🗽💙😷

  9. So long as a side effect isn’t death, I’m good with it… Right after the Trump administration has taken a dose.

  10. All of this news without Trump’s bloated face stuck on it is nice.

  11. How are you going to study the long-term effects of a vaccine without waiting 6-12 months to see what happens? 🤔

  12. I feel like I already saw zombies created with a bad vaccine in a Will Smith movie. ,

    That’s A Long Wait…
    Americans Need $Financial$upport…

  14. Egalitarian Vegan | November 12, 2020 at 5:28 PM | Reply

    Long term side effects are an unknown because there have been no long term studies. A lot of guess work going on here. I am not against vaccines, but I do think rushing the science has the potential to be a big mistake. I don’t think any reputable medical scientist would disagree with that.

    • Some that have had it say it feels like a bad hangover. But not one study on patients with underline conditions. No data that I’ve seen out yet

  15. What is wrong with US Folks? Why can’t you learn from other countries like Singapore, Australia, S.Korea,
    Taiwan, Laos and Vietnam? A short lock down and wearing of mask will control the spread!!!!

    • It interferes with the trump crowds “civil liberties” and companies ability to make money off their slave workers. What about my civil liberties not to catch it from one of these delusional “people”!

    • Cristian Armaselu | November 12, 2020 at 8:45 PM | Reply

      Too many stupid people. When you hear them the mask are only 90% efficient and they will not ware one… If they were sick of cancer they will accept anything if gives them a 30% or more chance of survival. Can’t fix stupid in large quantities

    Most of these people brought it on themselves. They listen to Trump instead of the Medical experts. Now they pay the price.

  17. Le Cirque Macabre : Hosted by ringmaster Donald J. Trumpet.

  18. All those who think masks don’t work, wait until the insurance companies start requiring them to get coverage

  19. “It’s going to take a lot of education.” Not our strong suit.

  20. Meanwhile…Trump still does nothing. Covid will be part of his legacy.

    I won’t be interested in any vaccine until I see how others do with it.
