      House Majority why were you putting ears on meat originally?

      @Orion Waight FO putin puppet.

      wildgoosedreaming1 dude it’s a joke because he misspelled eating. I voted for Clinton and I’m voting Biden this year. So please try to get to know me before accusing me of being a puppet.

  2. I stopped eating animals 5 years ago, it’s the best thing I’ve ever done. For me it’s morally and ethically wrong. Animals should only be friends not food

      @Colin You don’t understand the concept of a nervous system? Slamming a door on a cat’s tail vs. cutting the lawn?

      @Yaria Samavan Carlan Is your angry post a product of you’re eating meat and all the chemicals and hormones that are put in the meat? Yikes.

    • Yaria Samavan Carlan | May 26, 2020 at 5:12 PM | Reply

      @Shavauna Ronan i raise the meat I eat, and grow the produce I eat as well.

      Homestead life baby🤘😝

    • @wildgoosedreaming1 I don’t want to be food.

    • @Allan Burns Why does having a nervous system mean that eating plants is okay but not eating animals? Why does having a nervous system mean i ought to eat plants and ought not eat animals?

  3. All essential workers, if not everyone, should be able to receive rapid COVID-19 tests.
    Anyone meeting President Trump or Vice President Pence is subjected to rapid COVID-19 tests to prevent the leaders from becoming infected with the virus, the White House said Friday.
    New York Post, Ebony Bowden, April 3, 2020

      You are correct except that it should read “impeached squatter trump and squatter pence”.

  4. Anyone working as an essential employee should at least get the $600 pandemic relief on top of their pay.

    • @Rune – Thorne oh, I was SOOO hoping that was the case – I was going to accuse you of sarcasm, initially, of which I approve of wholeheartedly. No, I had not heard that, and I’m going to look now. It’s so disheartening to know that people value human life so little. 🙁
      Let’s vote, my friend.

      @Ben Lutz Oh you know I am, and I am so writing to the Lincoln project and all the people I know about that line…I was like what? no…what? lmao

      $600 won’t cover medical bills should they get covid19, especially considering most grocery/food service employees don’t have health insurance. The grocery store my 23yo works for made everyone, except managers, part time so they didn’t have to pay for insurance. $600 also won’t cover a funeral anywhere in the US.

    • @Meri Lizzie Please try to keep your family safe. Rich people are not worth dying for.

      Thank you Ben. Thankfully we live in a small town. We’ve also been taking extra precautions since early March due to my being immune compromised.

    Its main employees illegal but that’s ok illegal infact they gotta keep working says trump

  6. Best way is to not eat meat.

    • Allan Burns | May 26, 2020 at 4:47 PM | Reply

      Exactly. Eating meat is the worst thing humans do when you really look at it. Abuses and slaughters billions of animals, wrecks the environment, compromises human health, spawns pathogens, and creates the worst jobs in the world. Going plant-based is a win-win-win-win-win.

  7. White house serving more Salads? O do they get all the meat they want?

  8. Bert And Ernie | May 26, 2020 at 1:00 PM | Reply

    They can’t be safe in a pandemic. Its all about the shrinking cash flow. You don’t need animal products to live.

    Trump needs Burger King to keep going for visitors to the WH.

  10. “No, I don’t think we need to have meat companies disclose the number of cases.” – republican Gov.
    “But, it’s not like this is affecting the regular people.” – republican judge
    “It’s time for us to sacrifice ourselves for the economy.” – republican state tv
    It’s almost as if republicans don’t actually care about how many people die in service of their corporate overlords.

      @orphan 200 Something to think about No one is above the law right JOE lol let’s find out the truth.The opening of a Cold Case against Psycho Joe Scarborough was not a Donald Trump original thought, this has been going on for years, long before I joined the chorus. In 2016 when Joe & his wacky future ex-wife, Mika, would endlessly interview me, I would always be thinking about whether or not Joe could have done such a horrible thing? Maybe or maybe not, but I find Joe to be a total Nut Job, and I knew him well, far better than most. So many unanswered & obvious questions, but I won’t bring them up now! Law enforcement eventually will?

      we have an abundance of human capital stock ready to step in and do the work needed. “Human capital stock” that is what the Trump economic team refers to unemployed Americans…stock, like pieces of paper owned by companies, like cattle bought sold and traded. That is our value to the president and his people. Get the stock back to work.

    • Rune - Thorne | May 26, 2020 at 5:02 PM | Reply

      @Tom Dower you are a fine example of Trumpian human capital stock.

    • Rune - Thorne | May 26, 2020 at 5:03 PM | Reply

      @Christopher Colon You are an excellent example of Trumpian human capital stock.

    • Shavauna Ronan | May 26, 2020 at 5:14 PM | Reply

      @Christopher Colon Putin or trump ask you to troll? Go peddle your propaganda B.S. elsewhere.

  11. 4:35 so it’s way worse than a normal environment…. great.

    They are under orders! Trump forced this compulsion using the DPA.

    The great one, standing stupidly rocking back and forth, caressing his Big Belly at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. Thinking, I can’t wait til this is over need me some KFC..

    There should be enough masks and gloves for evey store, churches, schools. Start a factory to make them!

    • Do we really need church services? Does the bible say anything is wrong with worshiping at home? Church services are social events. God doesn’t care if people worship in truckstop restrooms if that’s what the have to do.

    I’m in no way vegan, or vegetarian. But if we run outta meat, we’ll be fine. We can just eat all the grain we’ve been using to fatten cattle, and it’ll go WAY fukin further in our bellies than any amount of meat will.

    It’s not the nations ‘food’ supply, it’s the nations ‘meat’ supply.

    I’m not sure why Beyond Meat isn’t advertising constantly to show people they really don’t need meat after all.

  19. Hamberder King | May 26, 2020 at 5:20 PM | Reply

    As a lifelong butcher i can tell you that the employers in the meat business are the worst.

  20. Fyi: My dear Americans, veggies are food too. So is bread. Oh, and fruit.
