    • @Patriot Spring
      Did anyone ever tell you
      that a Patriot is a LOVER of his Country.
      And that His Country is His people.
      and that without His people he has no country..
      no nation
      and no reason to exist.

      @8alot4t I agree 100%. I’m not sure how what I said contradicts that sentiment.

    • The Ropes of Renovation | April 25, 2020 at 2:35 AM | Reply

      @8alot4t So. Get a job in a nursing home and see what YOU can do. I’m rootin’ for ya.

    • @The Ropes of Renovation I spent years working in nursing (specialising in geriatrics). I found it very rewarding.
      But in the late seventies most of these services were privatised under our then PM.Margaret Thatcher.
      Care under these (for profit) companies rapidly came under scrutiny and many were criticised even closed down due to poor care standards.
      What we have seen these past few months is that, despite the high cost of such care, many many people have died, globally.
      There is clearly something very seriously wrong with the levels of care (and I am not directing any criticism at the nurses or nursing assistants).

    • The Ropes of Renovation | April 27, 2020 at 12:25 PM | Reply

      @8alot4t I know you aren’t criticizing nurses and aides. I worked in homes in from the 80’s – present in USA. Here’s what I saw and I am being very truthful here. I worked in both privately owned and state-run homes. These are the changes I’ve witnessed, good and bad.

      #1 Smaller homes, 60-80 beds receive much better care than bigger ones. I believe this is due to continuity of care. That makes THE biggest difference. As you know, when you ‘know someone like a book’ you recognize small changes in health that may otherwise be missed. Also, the CNA/nurse knows the residents’ routines and this make the resident feel happier and safer.

      #2 The amount of medications per resident has increased approx 3-4 times maybe more. I remember when our medication nurse could pass meds for 60 residents in an hour. Now it takes 2-3 or more hours to pass meds to 30 residents. And I am NOT exaggerating at all. I promise I am not! Also, my last job as a hospice nurse confirmed the fact the elderly are overmedicated. When we took the patient off all meds except blood pressure meds, insulin and other necessary meds not directly needed to maintain life, I noticed the patient became clearer in mind, more mobile and a great improvement in gross and fine motor skills. It was unmistakable.

      #3 The amount of unnecessary lab work increased at least by 4x

      #4 The number of bed sores still remains the same DEPENDING ON THE FACILITY. Good homes, even in the 80’s had very few. Other homes were infested with wounds. Seems I had more problems with venous stasis ulcers , then banged up shins and then came skin tears.

      # 5 Staffing has remained the same though paperwork has increased 100 fold and when CMS got an attitude and threw down all these regulations the amount of time actually spent with a patient fell dramatically. Now staffing has become the number one problem. Plain and simple.

      #6 State run homes are a much, much worse place to be in or work in. Also not-for-profit are as much about the profit as for-profit homes.

      #7 The amount of medication waste has become out of control and enormously costly. More on that if you are interested.

      I could go on and on but I’ll stop now. The nurses are poorly paid and CNA wages are even worse. People who work in homes genuinely like the elderly. Yes, there are a few bad apples as with any career, but overall they are there because they genuinely care.

    Maybe electing a reality TV host who dodged the draft,
    is a compulsive liar,
    and cheats at golf
    was a bad idea.

    • Ann van de Kew The CIA would have NEVER stood for competition 😂

    • Ann van de Kew You understand that Trump Airlines was a domestic not international . The other fact it did not go bankrupt , it was eventually sold to USair and is now part of American Airlines .😀

    • Ann van de Kew saying “and cheats at golf” simply shows pettiness and devalues what could have been a valid point.

    • Ann van de Kew | April 19, 2020 at 9:42 PM | Reply

      @Nismo Life More than 41,000 people have died in the US. Why is there talk of easing restrictions?

    • Ann van de Kew I have no idea. Why would you ask a random person on YouTube that? There are certainly more qualified people than myself.

    Trump’s psychiatrist told him: “You’re going crazy”. Trump told him: “I’d like a second opinion”. The doctor said, “Alright, you’re ugly too”.

  9. Madeleine Albright is awesome and she is still on top of what’s happening in the world and has answers for a lot of really tough questions, man wish she was still Secretary of State!

    • Mount Kailash | April 17, 2020 at 2:48 AM | Reply

      Exactly what I thought too. She’s super sharp. Goodness me. Imagine you have a grandma like that..😢

    • She made the infamous claim that the death of 500 000 Iraqi children due to sanctions was “worth the price”. Only a psychopath would make such a statement. In my book that makes her worse than Trump.

    • @Gray Shus Wow, had never heard that and if so that is just awful and not even ok.

  10. Coronavirus denuded America from its ” fake sophistication ” now the whole world see the degree of immorality of the US system

    • @Tony Wilson just search on “who” in search bar youncan get the answer.

      oh the other media that share your view is CGN… that’s right china’s state media. go figures

    • Patriot Spring | April 17, 2020 at 9:33 AM | Reply

      @Tony Wilson I don’t agree. Your disdain for Trump is not based on objective evidence.

    • @izzah Yeah we are all aware of the Chinese issue and have been for weeks. We know the first doctor to diagnose the virus was silenced and then sadly died form it. So you are weeks late to those arguments.
      And maybe that is the biggest problem of our age, nobody listens until the problem is so big that it can’t be ignored.
      Do you know the first scientific paper published about CO2 and warning about its effect on climate was in 1896 (yeah 124 years ago).
      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_climate_change_science#First_calculations_of_greenhouse_effect,_1896
      And yet we have people claiming its a conspiracy from the 50s or 60s or 70s or 80s. *We are supposed to be living in the “information age” when the reality is we are living in the “dis-information age”.*

      R A I was thinking the same thing. Sophisticated country? What a joke! Judge other countries for how they live but China did all they had to do to save their people’s lives! What is America doing?

    • Patriot Spring | April 17, 2020 at 10:51 AM | Reply

      @ᔕɧყ レųиą China started this and then lied about it…they saved nobody’s lives.

  11. I’m I the only one listening to her and wishing we could trade her out with Trump?

  12. Maybe it would be a good idea to manufacture critical medicine and equipment in the USA. You know just in case we get a pandemic or something.

  13. Trump thinks everyone is his friend , he dsnt have any friends they laugh at him !!! Even the UN laughed at him ,all our Foreign leaders laugh at him n they say he’s a joke !!! We all saw the tapes they say he’s a nut case !!! He’s not respected at all !!! He’s a liar he can’t handle anything right he’s failed at everything n now this Virus !! He didn’t listen to all the experts he ignored them n still does !!! He want to open up the States now !!! He has blood on his hands already n there’s going to be more n more deaths !!!

    • you are right the whole world is laughing at Trump and all the ugly side of US that is being revealed by the pandemic

    • Even Melania most likely laughs at him. How sad

    • Trump’s typical, successful MO has always been incentive. Surely you’ve known him long enough to get that. If you do what he likes you are rewarded and if you do not you are excluded. It’s been successful so far. It got talks going with Kim Jung Il and now the WHO has to learn. You have got to be completely prejudiced against Trump to say he was knowledgeable about the virus at the beginning of the pandemic because that is not true. This story by MSNBC begins to cast at least a little blame on the WHO as he says “early in the pandemic, in mid January”.. But their timing is way off. The fact is that was a month and a half after the pandemic was known to the Chinese. The first human to human spread was documented on December 8th. This was the time when it could have been contained. At least they think so, but now they’re discovering it can take up to six weeks, or even NEVER for a carrier human host of the virus to have the disease and be spreading it – long before- or without EVER having symptoms. By mid December this story was still being covered up, punishing doctors for even talking about it. You remember at least one, Dr. Li Wenliang, who is now DEAD, and by then it was already on its way around the globe, before Trump- no, not just Trump, before the world knew about it. The blame does lay with China and the WHO which was obliging the cover up, that is against their purpose. They have been politicized. Whether you want to laugh at Trump that’s up to you but certainly we have to look at the origin, the first sign of the pandemic in December. Some say now they might have seen it in November. This is a world wide tragedy perpetrated by the Communist regime of China and the WHO which is only there to warn the world of this kind of thing. I don’t see anything or anyone to laugh at here.

    Albright: “…and I don’t think the administration is thinking about those consequences.”
    Me: I don’t think the administration is thinking.

  15. So what she keeps saying is that we need a leader that is an adult. Smooth.

    Where the Chinese come with prosperity, the USA put dictators in place, who facilitated the robbing of their country. Please before criticizing, look at yourselves. If China starts to cruise with warships all over the Caribbean sea and the Atlantic, it would be seen as a very measured answer, if the USA would build forts in those waters. The US has done worse in the past.
    Get real. The Chinese have given the alarm back in December 2019. But what this was and how contagious they didn’t know yet. That takes some time. Then when they knew they took strong action. Closing off an entire province. Oh my god that totalitarian system. How bad. But in doing that they limited the damage in the world.
    Good governments followed suit. Very bad governments did not. Spain, Italy, UK and yes champion of all the USA. Now where even the UK says it will not open up too soon, your WH clown (with still about half of the country’s support says we have to open. Your clown was warned by Chinese government by January 3rd. Also his own intelligence. Where China squandered December, because they did not yet understand what and where, your clown squandered 3 full months. With no excuse that he did not know what was happening. Now to state that he would have listened to the WHO if they told him sooner is again such a devious lie. He did not listen to anybody. That’s your leader. That should be the worlds example of true leadership? Give me a break. He would like to be America’s Mussolini. Only he has not half the brains of that man.

      Eric Ruijten correct. Two separate issues. The US disaster, and then the China/WHO situation. First things first, the US.

      Honestly, everyone really needs to stop comparing Trump to Mussolini. Mussolini at least had the trains in Italy running on time. Trump can’t even be bothered to stumble into the Oval Office before noon. Now, if being shot and strung up in a gas station is an option for a comparison, I am all in.

      @Richard Pentelow probably, but there are gas pumps visible in some of the pictures. Obviously, gas pumps would be too short to string someone up on, so whatever works. Why? Are you scouting out locations for a good old fashioned Mussolini redo?

    Being developed didn’t help Italy, Spain or the U.S. There is alot of talk about developing nations. It’s interesting because the developing nations seem to be doing better.

  20. She talks well. She is articulate, insightful and coherent. He is NONE of that.
