    Nicole Wallace is a life-long Republican who pretends she has nothing to do with the rise of Trump. Took her 9 months to acknowledge anything but rich peoples problems.

  2. …take a moment to imagine animals in factory farms confined in small spaces for years: newborn calves separated from their mothers, pigs constrained in cages with no room to turn around…..this is their reality: one of loneliness and isolation….pandemic or not. Yet we humans “complain” of being isolated during this pandemic when isolation is what humans inflict on animals by the millions each day……….

    • I took a minute. I got nothing except I need to hook the propane tank up for these burgers and Omaha steaks. Meats meat and a man’s gotta eat.

      It is sad, they should be treated better no doubt. Not that Im against eating meat. Just against the mistreatment of these animals while they are alive. Maybe the less they suffer, the less we suffer, you never know what transfers.

    • Go veggie! Animals have rights. Animals have feelings.

      @Lois Cassels They do, but some could argue the science says so do plants. For now the best one can hope for is that the animals used for food are treated better as they should be. And perhaps later when the science can simulate the meat eaters taste artificially then animals may not be used as food anymore. Thats the best case scenario, you cant say to meat eaters dont eat meat if they have no other options to replace the experience and taste, its kind of a waste of time sadly. Not counting meat is cheap and most people in America are not rich so meat is on the menu. Its just how it is until things can be made better. But again the goal for now should at the least be that the animals used as food are treated better.

  3. Lucky for t’rump supporters, mental illness requires you to have a mind first. 😉

  4. 1/3 million dead is no where near the factual define of of “containment” no, not the facts.

    A really important thing to keep in mind. They are experiencing light deprivation.

  6. Not true. That many people voting for Trump shows how rampant mental issues are throughout America. The gop is the litmus test of American stupidity.

    • you are half right… if you trust either political party then you are delusional at best.

    • @My Dude agreed, we need a third party, more conservative and more progressive but for the people.

    • @halfon005 close, but I think we need 4 major parties… the best case scenario in my opinion would be for the current democrat and republican parties to split. 4 major parties total would force some of the parties to reach out and come to some middle ground on issues. Currently with only the Major 2 not ever agreeing on anything and fighting all the time causes a lot of deadlock.

  7. We have a mental health crisis across the board and yes I realize Our Children come first. My questions are what about Doctors & Nurses who now have PTSD. Also what are we going to do with the people who have been Gaslighted by trump? We have such a mess going on very sad. js

    • So glad I changed careers to mental health. I will graduate w/ a clinical MSW in April, and will apply for a license right away. I will never be w/out clients…

    • you know what really get’s me is this 900 billion stimulus relief bill we will have to paid for , 900 billion and we get 600.00 one time while the democrats want to give 2/3 of this 900 billion to other countries for social programs I Hope Trump doesn’t sing this peace of crap 900 billion would help america out or months

  8. The orange blight just handed out more pardons, _how long before he pardons his buddy Epstein’s mistress ghoulaine maxwell, we know that he “wished the child trafficker well”_

    And with all respect, I suspect that every person working in the White House has, to some extent, PTSD, due to the shenanigans of 45.

  10. Mental health is (and has been) the last consideration in many areas of American life.

  11. They just noticed?

    This “tsunami” of mental illness has been around _long_ before the COVID-19 pandemic, and nothing had been done. In fact, others — online, school, workplace etc. — outright mocked, harrassed and used mentally ill people as scapegoats.

    It’s pathetic that it takes a global pandemic to sound the alarm, and worse, just spout worthless platitudes like in this video.

    • This has been around forever and was being systemically used on poor people and people of color in the school system in public housing.It was all deliberately designed and then people were left to suffer by the government.

    All of the covid issues lay at the feet of DO-NOTHING-TRUMP!!!!herd immunity gave trump a reason to not care about the people he swore to serve!

    Bottom line most of us are depressed have anxiety attacks the cause I believe is the trump presidency and the isolation of covid

    • lol….speak for yourself and the circles you mix is.
      the forced shut downs are causing problems
      you’ve got 99 problems but i can assure you that trump aint one

  14. I’m more concerned about the Tsunami of mental illness that trump has infected his cult with.

  15. I lost my partner in July. Without her I’ve certainly been in a bad place, mentally. I doubt I’m alone.

    Nicole, trump has stopped stimulus to distract from his 15 criminal pardons😷

  19. Yes because my anxiety is high levels lately. I’m in the bottles more everyday, wine, vodka martinis, bourbon, beer, whatever I get a taste for, right now I’m flushing with water.

  20. These people will mentally ill before covid.
