  1. Not slow for Republican Covid deniers in perfect health like Marco Rubio.

  2. t’rump promise: “We’ll have 20 million vaccines administered by the end of December!”
    t’rump promise in reality: “We’re at 2 million to far, but good enough right? I’m going to play golf now.”

      Little baby Ro, Biden was against travel bans and said that preventing the coronavirus is xenophobic,while Trump made travel bans! Its estimated that over 2 million Americans would have died from Cuomo-19 under Dementia Joe Kid Touch! #bidentouchingkids

    • Are you kidding me. Catch 22 damed if he does damed if he don’t. He brought the cure to life it’s your personal responsibility after that.

    • Do you ever take personal responsibility?

    • The only balls you play with are those of your boyfriends.

    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.

    Trump and the GOP have failed the American populace from day 1 of this pandemic.

    It is sad that our government response has been so bad. In the past we have been on top of things like this. We had the wrong man in power when this virus hit. All 50 states have differing responses, it’s a mess!

  8. Captain warp speed is down there’s a problem with the Dilithium Crystals.

  9. 80 million cases is current infection count WORLDWIDE.

  10. Hey, Mrs. Alan Greenspan, why don’t you point out that 80,000 Benghazi’s of people have died due to Trump’s incompetence. One Benghazi was worth 8 congressional investigations and 16 months of headlines. What is 80,000 Benghazi’s worth? Crickets.

    “Dr. Peter Hotez On Slow Vaccine Distribution” motivates 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.

  12. Will Marco Rubio (who has already received his first vaccine and again calling Dr. Fauci a liar and an elitist) be calling out that Americans were promised 20 million vaccines by years end? Probably not if it makes his lord and master trump look bad.

      Oh, boy Mario’s looking to run for POTUS again, though in his case, more like POS. Covering all the bases, jumps the line so he can get a photo op being vaccinated, then disparages Dr. Fauci. Mini-tRump?

    “Private” doctors in he UK have been bombarded by the affluent offering large sums for BioNTech vaccine. But they find that all vaccines are currently administered by the NHS and it is done on a priority basis. Money is not involved. There are logistical problems with this particular vaccine which prevents its distribution to remote villages and small establishments. Medical staff (including cleaners and porters) are in the top group, as are people (like myself) over the age of 80. Ironically this has meant that Rupert Murdoch, Chairman of Fox News, was vaccinated in the first week. About 700,000 ffirst doses have been given so far. We expect the Oxford vaccine will start distribution in the next week or two and that is a much less challenging exercise

  16. Oh what a surprise, operation warp speed, has slowed to half speed, trump kept banging on about how it was going to be amazing. Such a ignorant fool.

    TRUMP is Gangster! He’ll never give up give in or bow down!

  18. 1:29 Wait.. Trump’s admin over-selling something? Dare you jest!

  19. Earlier today, I tweeted that the logistics of this vaccine “rollout” is ridiculous. I knew, a few weeks ago, when the General over this “rollout” said that he had failed. Not to mention the fact that individuals must get both doses of vaccine from the same manufacturer. The “rollout” was a little over two weeks ago. They have vaccinated fewer than two million Americans in that time. There are over three-hundred and thirty million Americans. And that’s just the first dose. I’m just sayin’. They are saying there is a more contagious strain. And it’s probably (surely) in the United States. They aren’t even attributing a lot of the infections and deaths to Donald J. Trump and his band of Republican buffoons canvassing the entire country and holding mask-less Covid-Festivals. I tried to warn the American people that Trump and his administration and the Republican party were attempting to intentionally infect as many Americans as possible, in order to achieve “herd immunity.” To achieve that with our humoral immunity system would cause hospital overload and countless deaths. My assumption was recently proven to be correct. Emails were discovered which prove that was Trump and his administrations plan. That was an extremely deadly plan for many Americans. I’m a 64 year-old, Black, male. I’m a U.S.Navy Veteran. I wrote a couple of election raps. The titles are Trump Crap! by SmoothK and Trump Crap 2 by SmoothK. They are on you tube. It was all I could do to help in these elections. If you check them out and like them, and have friends or relatives who are potential voters in Georgia, please share the videos with them. We really need both those Senate seats a lot. It’s the only way the Biden/Harris administration will get anything done. May you and yours Have a Very Safe and Happy Holiday Season Peace Out! SmoothK ; )
