      @quan Brooklyn kid study from the Korean Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has found that patients who test positive for COVID-19 after recovering from the illness appear to be shedding dead copies of the virus.

    • Does our present situation qualify for trump’s MAGA ? This should give all you dummies wearing the hats headaches while standing in line for unemployment or food to feed your families.

      @Vera von Weltin I agree 100%…The reason trump supporters don’t wear a mask is because they already have one on!!!

      I agree..Trump 2020

  3. Dr trumpet hates New York and wants to hurt it bad, forgetting, NY is the vibrating creative inspiring heart of America, the statute of liberty testifying

      Show the lack of geography Trump has. Where is the stock market and Wall Street located?

    • @Dorientje Woller there’s a stock market in every country, the first ever being in Brugge, Belgium called ‘de beurse’ centuries ago

    • Dorientje Woller | May 19, 2020 at 1:08 PM | Reply

      @Jaak Savat Yep, but you do forget the most influencial stock market of the world is located in NY. Imaging how quick Texas or Kentucky will jump if the State Of NY makes it hard for companies out of those states to be on the stock market.

  4. Wow he’s right that is exactly what happened.

    Hey! I thought everyone knows by now, “trickledown economics” DOES NOT WORK!‼not for the lower 90% of Americans! The Repulses are at it again!
    People, you CAN vote them out! 🗳📬 All GOPs‼

    • Hope so but not holding my breath. After all the Electoral College shoved through the present egregious incumbent with just under a 3,000,000 minority. US calls the good, democratic, majority vote “the Popular Vote” and 45fake did NOT win it.

    • Martha Martha | May 19, 2020 at 9:00 PM | Reply

      These are the REPUBLICANS. And now it’s worst. Trump has big businesses he’s getting a chunk of it too. Why you think trump has fired watchdogs put in by DEMOCRATS to see how the money is being distributed.

    US spend billions to get to the mars but can´t afford to feed their people on earth???

    • “billions” is (not being glib, it’s just true) basically a rounding error.
      “a billion here and a billion there … pretty soon you’re talking about ‘real’ money”

    • Fight wars for corporations, oil and weapon manufacturers. That way keep the economy up and people poor, unfed and untreated. The world has moved on after the second world war. But, there was not a year when America was not on war with a country or group so far. That tells the story

    • @iDroid for people, you forgot “desperate” and “perpetually on knife’s edge.”
      but (sigh) excellent post.

      it’s like gop read about 18th and 19th century history of working class and mistook it for a “how-to” manual.

    It is refreshing how he does NOT go on and on about rankings, ratings, polls, and basically all that crap that the Trump Cult is obsessed with.

    Laying off workers and giving big bonuses to ceo’s is exactly what has been going on since bone spurs implememted trickle down economics. The economy has been running on Obama’s coattails and now into the 4th year of his “presidency” the country is falling apart and his padded numbers cant hide the facts anymore.

    • @David Shaw guessing you’ve read about trump’s emphasis about China trade deal that China no longer IP. did you ever actually think about that premise/obsession?

    • Jack Spencer | May 19, 2020 at 6:50 PM | Reply

      @David Shaw what far right rock did you crawl from under? bush jr ran this country into the ground with trickle down economics and Obama fixed it. trump came in and started bush jr all over again with tax cuts for the rich and trickle down economics. He made it to where anyone who makes over 100k doesnt have to pay taxes and anyone who makes under 100k has to pay more taxes. THAT DOESNT WORK!!!!

    • This is all bad but my worst fear is what 45 can do between November and January after he loses. We all know he is a spiteful brat.

    • Jack Spencer | May 19, 2020 at 9:23 PM | Reply

      @David Shaw then you talk about china china china when your bone spur praised china many times and still does. He panders so its all about what the news has been saying along with how hes feeling and feels he needs to respond to answers. So his china answers vary from “i dont know them” to “they are doing a great job” to “its chinas fault”. You are also ignorant to any of his policies that are on paper you just listen to what him, fox and brietbart say. As soon as walmart and amazon got their tax cuts they shut down jobs in the USA and outsourced them and they gave CEO and other board members raises. You are so blinded by hate, racism and propaganda you cant see reality and what damage he has done to our country. Obama was a time of peace and they were a great 8 years and now thats all over.

    • Jack Spencer Ok not sure what you are trying to say because most doesn’t make sense. What did Biden say all the way up to February 24? O that Trump,was being racist and we had nothing to worry about! Ok what’s wrong with any policies Trump has made? As far as Amazon didn’t they look for a location for another headquarters and NY voted it down? Who employees people? O those that start companies! Why did the US charge the highest corporate tax in the world? Why when Clinton and Obama said we have a problem at our borders it’s ok but when Trump says we are going to fix the border it seams to be a problem? Look anyone with a brain knows there is more behind this virus than we are being told, first it was from bats and magically jumped to humans, how about it came from a lab in China. Now this strain has been around for a long time. What are you think the end game will be? We all have to take a vaccine? We will be locked down every year do to the flue that kills 50 thousand on average a year? What happens to those numbers this year? Why did the CDC count people that never got tested? How did Trump wave his magic wand and bring companies back to the us? Why did we have such low unemployment and everyplace you looked companies are hiring? Also if your one that thinks this virus is so bad why didn’t more,companies close? Don’t say because they are essential businesses! Yes some are but most are not and I even work for one that handles FEMA response. What Trump have done in 2 months as a response to the virus is amazing and now we are shipping PPE and respirators to other countries!

    Who can really deny what he’s saying about corporations? Literally happening..get rid of everyone..then hand out little crumbs..the masses will be happy while suffering.. dude is right on. Small business should be scared.

    • Samantha Sun | May 19, 2020 at 10:52 PM | Reply

      Why isn’t Cuomo doing anything to help the small businesses in NY? They are in his state, and he IS the Governor.
      He calls the shots… Not the Federal govt, like he’s reminded us many times.

    He is so right!!!! That’s what my job is doing. They got a lot of money and still laid off employees.

    This is the reason we need to vote Democratic Party.

    • Jeff Osborne | May 19, 2020 at 3:29 PM | Reply

      Gwendolyn Williams Freedom , liberty, The 2nd Amendment, The Democrat party has been in charge of the areas hardest hit by the virus for over fifty years, all those blue states , from governor all the way down to city council and Mayor , all Democrats . Do you actually think keeping the same people in power and repeating the same mistakes over and over is somehow going to produce a different outcome this time?

    • Shadat Rahman keep taking the blue pill and you will never see the truth.

    • @Jeff Osborne “freedom” to do what? also, do facts matter to you at all?
      “hardest hit”: NO. not unless you have reading comprehension of _literally_ a goldfish. maybe (stay in school, kids) you _just really_ need to learn how “per capita” works.
      if only bc Indiana has _THREE TIMES_ the death rate of California.
      California has less than *_HALF_* death rate of Georgia, Mississippi, Ohio.
      Alabama, Iowa, and Missouri are 50% higher *_PER CAPITA_* than California.
      and less then a third of Indiana’s death count

    • Jeff Osborne | May 19, 2020 at 6:12 PM | Reply

      efs 1066 I’m gonna say maybe talk to your obgyn and figure out what’s knocked out of kilter, good luck with that

    • @Jeff Osborne bold take that only women say things that are true – but I don’t doubt that’s your bubble

  15. Welcome to the Un-united States of America. Trump has created this, in fighting

    • MrSparklespring | May 19, 2020 at 8:11 PM | Reply

      Yep the divided states of America. Sad : by the way, your two party system sucks. In Europe we have more real democracy with up to five parties that can form a government, with coalitions. This two party thing seems to be typical for english speaking countries US/UK.

    • Samantha Sun | May 19, 2020 at 10:25 PM | Reply

      Nah, Obama divided us..

    This shows government don’t give a sh*t about American Children getting their education. Seems the only Children that could learn are the rich kids. The poorer children are losing there ability to learn. How many parents care about that? Care enough to go to the polls and make a difference.

  19. The trying to shade this man but he moves like Ali.

  20. Cuomo is the only adult in the room. Everyone else making a buck while they can. Democrats, what the heck are you waiting for? Fight…stand up for people.

    • Samantha Sun | May 19, 2020 at 10:50 PM | Reply

      Everyone else making a buck? You mean like Cuomos raise?
      Or how about the people getting $600 every week, that never made that much while working, but yet essential workers are still making normal pay, and don’t get the luxury of staying home?

      Fight? For what?
      The only people standing up fighting are the families of the people that Cuomo murdered in the nursing homes.
