  1. Herd stupidity still on full display smdh
    Those of us who take the virus seriously should be offered n95s to protect ourselves and each other more efficiently and let those who dont continue to spread it amongst themselves.

      you wouldn’t think that magascum who support and believe in the grand/imperial Loser’s lies about Covid being a Democratic hoax would need a vaccine.

    • You should start a business with that. 7 masks a week 30 bucks, sent in mail. Then Americans could get herd mentality, the smart ones have a better chance of living and future generations might get some herd immunity from covid thanks to those who think it’s just hoax the world try to play on them.

      @brin Joness this would be America’s chance to experience the ultimate Darwin awards. Unfortunately the virus doesn’t discriminate and intelligent people are at risk – from these idiot’s infecting front line workers and anyone else they come in contact with – mask-less .. screaming about their ‘rights’

    • @brin Joness interesting you should say that since i dont believe that most masks prevent the virus from spreading completely but help control the viral load being absorbed from infectected people, thus allowing the immune system to mount a response and fight off the infection more successfully, hence helping to build up immunity over time.
      In the mean time, N95s would help protect the most vulnerable and hospitals from being over run with very sick patients while allowing the lunatic fringe to go at each other as much as they want.. and i very much like that idea! 😀

    In this election America defeated Vladimir putin.

    • @Agreeable Dragon You are neither of the things in your username. It is as ironically hypocritical as your opinions.

    • @Priscilla Robb And when those planes are turned into scrap, who do you think will be buying it? Trump’s and Republican pals Russia and China are likely on the short list.

    • @Agreeable Dragon He’s in American cities. They are operattives of APT29 and Unit 29155. Russian agents are in leadership positions in the NRA, Proud Boyz, Patriot Movement and other renegade militia groups all across the USA. FACT

      @DC Means I Yeah man, we’re all speaking Ruskie and drinking Stoly! Lol!

  3. America looks so stupid making a medical emergency into a political war. Now the idiots will pay for their stupidity. Unfortunately a lot of innocent people will too.

    • Exactly. Fortunately/Unfortunately trust (& faith) have been severely damaged/destroyed & maybe never be restored. If true, US is in danger of suffering a fate similar to USSR: social+political implosion followed by disintegration/segregation.

      (Readers warning: Guiltily long & “Mind Blowing” comments below)

      Nevertheless, it remains tragic to watch many nations like US, UK, China, Russia, India, New Holland, New Zealand, South Korea, North Korea, Monaco, Serboga, Somaliland, Sealand, Hutt River, Sentinel Island, Rose island, Lau lagoon, Bishop Rock, Subi reef, etc. are caught between The Devil (spies, trolls, liars, morons, brutal police, greedy fat cats, dodgy politicians, etc.) & The Deep blue sea (fear, disease, fascism, injustice, fake news, economic fallout, climate degradation, etc.).

      However this is Not very surprising since experts/gurus like Dr Kaku, Dr Dawkins, Dr Haseltine & the late Prof Hawking have already warned/projected that humanity will face greater & greater hardships+dangers (as it develops to reach Тип 1 status). Unfortunately there is also little/no chance of turning back the clock as the late Prof Sagan (& his team) has estimated-calculated that humanity has progressed pass the Тип 0.7 status. (https://astrobites.org/2016/03/15/classifying-civilisations-an-introduction-to-the-kardashev-scale/)

      In addition, Dr Gerald Crabtree & Dr Michael Woodley discovered evidence that with each passing generations, more & more humans are growing/being-born weaker, dumber, slower &/or fearter (genetically/biologically) despite improved/improving food, water, freedom, healthcare, hygiene, nutrition, telecom, internet, education, sanitation, security, infrastructure, life expectancy, IQ, GDP, GNI, PISA, STEM, etc. (https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.livescience.com/amp/37095-humans-smarter-or-dumber.html)

      *One can check one’s own (self + friends/family) Reaction Time here to see if its true that the average human Reaction Time has deteriorated to > 200 ms: https://humanbenchmark.com/tests/reactiontime/

      To make matters worse, Dr Peter Ward, Dr Donald Brownlee, Dr Michael Mann & Dr Lee Kump believe that multicellular species like crabs, frogs, dogs, apes & humans are living in a “temporary golden age” of macro-species (macrobes?) & have uncovered at least 1 more (earlier) Species of Mass Destruction (SMD i.e. a species/lifeform that had-can-will directly-indirectly cause massive-total destruction/extinction to multiple species/lifeforms). As such it is believed that there are now at least 2 active SMDs on Earth & a 3rd one maybe emerging/evolving/awakening. (https://books.google.com.au/books/about/The_Medea_Hypothesis.html?id=so9ZU88OBrEC&source=kp_book_description&redir_esc=y)

      Compounding these serious risks+dangers, the people in the Science & Security Board at the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists have agreed that the world’s vulnerability to global catastrophe from WMDs, climate degradation, and disruptive STEM/technologies (in other domains like Artificial Intelligence, Cyber Technology, Synthetic Biology, etc.) is even Higher than at the start/peak of Cold-War/Arms-race in 1953 (with the creation+detonation of the H-bomb) & in 2018 (with the threat of climate degradation & advance WMDs). As such, the “time” of the Doomsday Clock has been dropped to “100 s” before doomsday for 2020. If the Science & Security board is right, then humanity today is facing risks/threats that is far worse than Total Nuclear Annihilation during the Cold War period (https://thebulletin.org/doomsday-clock/current-time/)

      However, the situation may not be totally bleak/hopeless if Dr Caleb Scharf & Dr Lisa Randall ideas/speculations are right, i.e. dark matter/energy are possibly signs of “advance/intelligent” entities that are fixing/tinkering nature (or the universe) to make it more habitable. (https://dailygalaxy.com/2019/09/thought-provoking-advanced-life-in-the-dark-side-of-our-universe-weekend-feature/). If this is true/correct, then quarks, dreams, visions, microbes, bosons, prions, viroids, tachyons, entropy, etc. may also be signs of “adaptive/evolving” life-entities “tweaking” nature & making the environment more tolerable (or less harsh/hostile) to life.

      This may explain why some (bold/brave) people like Mr Andrew Hyde, Ms Youheum Son, Mr Rob Greenfield, Mr Julian Assange, Ms Chelsea Manning, Ms Alexandra Elbakyan, Mr Edward Snowden, Ms Greta Thunberg, Ms Naomi Seibt, Ms Agnes Chow, Mr/Ms Satoshi聡 Nakamoto中本, Dr Noam Chomsky, Dr Grigori Perelman, Dr Martin Jacques, Dr Yuan袁Lan岚Feng峰, the late Prof John Nash, the late Mr Aaron Swartz, the late Prof Yuji雄士 Ijiri井尻, the late Mother Teresa & the late Mahatma Ghandi have-tried/are-doing their personal best to make the world a better place &/or prepare for the worst (despite the gloomy odds).

      Hopefully cooler heads & saner voices will prevail over the fanatics+hardliners & allow humanity to overcome these great hardships+dangers. May the deaths+sufferings of the innocents & ignorants be merciful 🙏

      Unfortunately you’re so right. I believe the President didn’t act as soon as he should have because the pandemic was ravaging the more populated areas aka places that are more looked at as a democratic stronghold or counties. Now it’s spread to every crevasse and is especially hitting Republican majority areas as of late. It should have been taken care of as soon as we had word, but all we can do now is follow necessary guidelines and WASH THEM HANDS!! BE SAFE.

      @陳J You’ve obviously given that a lot of thought and research. To put it simply, the human beings have multiplied like a parasite on mother nature, there is too many of us and, at the rate we’re going, it’s not a bad prediction to say that only the ones who can adapt will survive. Let’s hope it doesn’t finish like in the movie “Idiocracy” which is almost a premonitory movie at this point.

  4. This is what happens when Republicans allow Confederates to take over their party and run it like American Al-Qaeda

    • @Tessmage Tessera Thankfully, history agrees with you. It’s up to Biden to set a new course. It’s not likely he can serve a second term, but he just might surprise the heck out of everyone. Personally, America is over due for a real Progressive like FDR or JFK. Biden doesn’t seem to fit that role, nor does VP Harris. Let’s hold our breath and cross our fingers.

      @Tessmage Tessera Plus, without the protection of the office of president, the truth about his, his family’s and his enablers’ shady dealings are going to come out.

    • Tessmage Tessera | November 24, 2020 at 1:48 PM | Reply

      @Chantale Massie Count on it. The SDNY is sitting on 67 sealed felony indictments against Trump. Those indictments will be unsealed on the day that Trump leaves the White House.

    So if Covid-19 is nothing but a hoax then how did Donald tRump, escort/flotus Melania, son Baron & sob son Don Jr. all catch this hoax/covid?

    • @Wisconsin Man Hey dufus. Hunter Biden was in the Ukraine working as an under cover State Department agent. His mission was diverting Ukrainian oil and gas to the EU. Trump screwed everything up by installing Rick Perry in the Ukraine. Had Hunter completed his mission Russia would not have any influence in the Ukraine or the EU. That was screwed as global news announced In November the completion of Russia’s fuel pipeline into the EU. Trump the traitor along with Moscow Mitch McConnell and their Conferate Republicans are wrecking the planet while handing global power over to Russia and Red China.

    • Chantale Massie | November 24, 2020 at 1:35 PM | Reply

      @Wisconsin Man Because trump’s kids had a father who bailed them out or cover her any misdeeds they committed. But be patient, it’s all going to come out soon.

    • @Chantale Massie Oh that’s it? They were just running a muck huh? But Daddy threw some money and it went away? OMG. But hey, I thought that was OK to do? Biden got prosecutors fired to not look into his kid. Now, with all that is out there in the interwebs, show me one story, gotta be 1 where one of the Trump kids did something. So I’ll wait.

    • @Wisconsin Man

       Trump Jr. was arrested for public drunkenness in New Orleans in 2001

    • @M Reuter Good Job. A public intoxication almost 20 years ago. Not bad. There was ONE. Now with that, Don Jr has talked about his youth as a partier and drinker but, what? Oh yeah, he quit because he wanted more of his life and didn’t wanna blow it. But Kudo’s for finding the 1.

  6. When will the politicians listen to the doctors what they’ve done so far hasn’t worked please listen to the doctors

    • They will listen when the Biden Administration is in place, not before then unfortunately, God help everyone who needs it!

    • Pharmaceuticals are big donors of $.

    • @annoyed aussie I’m a retired Public Health Nurse – and yes, Fauci may be right – he’s just being realistic, that doesn’t mean he WISHES it that way!!!!!…in a country like the US which is full of people who do not have any sense of social responsibility, there is little chance of complete elimination. Even if Biden had the power to implement a hard lockdown – which he doesn’t – it wouldn’t work, since the “red states” have ensured failure by politicising the crisis and convinced their followers that this is a matter of “patriotism” – quite quite perverse. And look what has happened to Governor Whitmer and others who have done their best to save the lives of her ungrateful Republican population. Outrageous. So give Fauci some credit – he may not envisage it going away but it’s because the public health experts in the US have been side-lined, belittled and removed from having any voice in decision making – not because he would wish it to be that way!!!

      As to France, yes, as always in these situations, it is the cities where there is the most spread and the least compliance with the restrictions. And that is unlikely to change. Here in the country, everyone follows the sensible precautions, including only going out for food and necessities. We have to fill out a form stating our business, where we travelled from and at what time, although there is little oversight by the gendarmerie this time, perhaps because lockdown was so well observed the first time. Macron made the same mistakes in the early days as all the rest of the European govts – waited too long to make the tough decisions. But he has been impressive since and I like his emphasis always on our PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY to everyone else. That is the only way to resolve this – everyone taking personal responsibility for not putting at risk the health of others.

    • @Paul Wiley thanks, Paul – it was my job for ten years! Public Health experts have been expecting this novel virus to erupt at some point. With the way the world treats animals, an outbreak of a zoonotic disease from a wet market or a slaughterhouse or a factory farm was only a matter of time. And it won’t be the last unless ‘humanity’ becomes less savage.

    • annoyed aussie | November 24, 2020 at 5:14 PM | Reply

      @Deb Bee What you say suggests that France can get rid of the virus when there is a vaccine available which is good and I agree that Fauci probably thinks much the same as me or you but doesn’t think it can be done in the US, I think it can be but really depends on Joe Biden and is he both tough and compassionate enough. These are the 2 qualities shown by Australian and New Zealand leaders. Another way to put it is he willing to be cruel to be kind. Only need a few states to follow and will have a domino effect because you don’t want to be in the state with continous problems and neighbors everything fine and open.

  7. Don’t worry Trump will take care in between golf shots.

  8. Senators still talking about Hydroxy chloroquine in November? Wtf? Is this ideology war, bad education or just pure incompetence?

    • @neil rusling David Hale lacks the brain capacity to understand the findings of such a study.

    • @Adrian Toko well my doctor disagrees with you. He’s said if you get it then he’ll perscribe it and has done with many other patients. And has had 100% success. So I’ll believe my doctor before some talking head mainstream media. Like flip flop Fauci.
      That dudes like a fish out of water. Flip flop.

    • @neil rusling well I’ll take my doctors advice. Not some online liberal nonsense. Or some talking head paid by media

    • @Adrian Toko so I believe you or any liberal study ? It’s submit or else is it ?
      Wow you liberals aren’t hiding your authoritarian facism anymore are you ?
      It’s your way or else. Hilarious

    • @David Hale FU

  9. Conspiracy Theories is all they’ve got left at this point.

  10. Ask Trump more about hydroxychloroquine, lol.

  11. Why are people flying ✈️
    with COVID at peak
    prolonging it’s spread throughout the already dark winter ❄️

  12. Trump declared a national emergency on the southern borders, but not when 12M Americans are sick from a deadly virus and 250K dead.

    • @A Writer Typical.. Some how I going to SICK my friends on you. Oh they said, Funny.

    • @bearly traincot So people recover from stuff they don’t even know they have? And Asymptomatic is a “new” thing for the wuhan now? When you have CDC and W.H.O say regardless of cause of death, if the individual test positive for the wuhan, consider it to be the cause of death. Yeah. I have seen, Motorcycle wrecks, Wuhan.. 0.55 Blood Alcohol level and died, be Wuhan. Early in this they said 1 day old baby dies from wuhan in Louisiana.They forgot to mention it was 23 weeks early, chance of living were slim to none as it was. A 17 year old in Alabama dies from wuhan. Parents stated, he had a heart condition since birth and was told he would more than likely die because of it in his teens. Yet it was Wuhan. How many has been included like that? How many had the FLU? This is the 2nd Flu season we have went into with the Wuhan but somehow, RECORD low Flu deaths. hahaha

    • @Wisconsin Man Okay. Blocking the weirdo now.

      Someday you’ll be ashamed.

    • @A Writer Blocking what?

    • bearly traincot | November 24, 2020 at 6:04 PM | Reply

      @Wisconsin Man apparently you listen to a different news source than I do. But Covid has gradually educated the medical community. My friend got some symptoms and tested positive and he’s on the mend. Some people regardless of their comorbidity just die. But just because it presents different than viruses we have known in the past doesn’t mean much of anything. If it was the Black Plague we’d know exactly how to treat it.

  13. Seriously, if the cult chooses HCQ, let’s just mind our business. If inclined to do so, they should pop those things like tic tacs.

  14. Thanksgiving is your Mega Spreader.
    Santa has decided to take a hoilday
    this year and stay at home its too
    dangerous out there for him.

    Do not expect leadership from the Republicans in the Senate. Old senile grifters.

  16. Trump is killing covid-19 viruses one-by-one with his golf ball, that’s why he is spending weekends golfing to save American lives.

  17. Not hard to understand why the Senate committee was talking about the failed Trump pushed drug. Trump and his band of traitors own shares in the company that produces it.

  18. Gee the places where Trump campaigned the most are among the hardest hit – go figure! Guess his super-spreader events were successful.

  19. And people ignorance still won’t wear a mask and social distance *Out of Control*

  20. I like the part where t’rump is so devastated by his re-election loss that he can’t face being in public, yet the 250,000 dead Americans on his watch is just another day at the golf course.
