      @Ash Roskell Barring any unforseen changes, the current data indicates that the Republicans (including Trump) will be seriously, horribly slaughtered in November.

      HCQ is being used in America and it is working. It’s time to stop wearing masks, come back together as a nation and reopen our world for us and our kids. Get informed for yourself and those you care about. The meeting happened yesterday from a group called America’s Frontline Doctors holding The Second Opinion Project. They have come together to get the truth out about the HCQ treatment. Youtube already pulled the video I linked before, but if you go here https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=666&v=aX_Q1FaY9pI&feature=emb_logoS you can see the full lecture. Dr. Richard Urso, Simone Gold MD, Dr. Stella Immanuel, Dr. Geoff Mitchell, Scott Barbour MD, James Todaro MD, CL Gray MD, Martha Leatheman MD, Jeffrey Kornitzer MD, Joel Singer MD, Mark McDonald MD, Olga Swanson MD, and others break down the fake science about the virus, the problems with the vaccine, etc.

      I thought that democracy would be a miracle that solves everything. I was wrong. China’s model is increasingly appealing. China has been resillient before, during and after the pandemic.

  4. very well said, ty dr melendez and mr velshi, and just plain heartbreaking.

    • What’s sad is there’s no help. The community is hit by the pandemic, hit by the hurricane, and no one is helping. If you know otherwise send me the link, cause I ain’t seeing anything. Nothing from the governor, no federal response, no FEMA, nobody.

  5. Me: America, please self Isolate, take this virus seriously..
    Hurricane Hanna: (Puts a cloud on my shoulder.) I got this.

    • @Bill Robbins Just hope the hospitals are okay with well stocked gennie’s and back ups for the back ups.. Hopefully they can get to people who need help and do it safely. National Guard in Hazmat all around, CDC for the sick…

      AMERICA REPENT!! GOD is mad at you!, you were hardest hit by the virus, now a hurricane and most of all you have Trump as president. Act Now!! REPENT !!! Or GOD will have Trump reelected.

    • You think this is a Joke????

    • @long nose Really? Try acting Indignant months ago before you had people packing beaches and protesting mask. Now Covid’s soon to run amok among the US. Nothing like a serious emergency for you all to realize your in deep S#%( already..

    This must be further evidence of Climate Change with Hurricane Season being upon us so early in the summer! Brazil had its 1st recorded hurricane.

    • Bunker Baby dRumph so you’re for gun control to help save lives yet you support women’s rights to murder children?

    • Bunker Baby dRumph : Don’t forget, NEVER Click a trump troll’s name. They get paid, each time someone Clicks on them to reply. And they get paid for Clicks on their Click Bait. The professional ones do, anyway. Still keep stomping them, but don’t get them paid? ✌️👍

    • Forrest Trump : Always a pleasure, sir 👍

    • Tyeler Nowell : I hope you realise that the GOP KNOWS that half of them are going to JAIL? So does the whole Trump family. Do you imagine they’re just waiting for that? Or, have you figured out what these Un-Constitutional, Secret Police units are FOR? Trump announced he’s expanding them, taking up 2/3rds of Federal Law Enforcement officers (if they’re willing?) to form these goons squad SS units. Why are you not ALL having illegal, “cops,” BANNED? They need to get OFF AMERICA’S STREETS! RIGHT NOW! You are ALL involved, whether you like it, or not. But, they should be every American’s single focus, RIGHT NOW! Get them GONE, or lose your elections

      Patrick Kingfisher Kennedy I’ve been able to vote since fall 2000 and never missed even a schooboard election. I’m voting early absentee mail in ballot since the WI primary this spring. Just turned in my August primary ballot and am anxiously waiting voting early in the fall.

    We don’t ask papers,,we,treat all patients,,,may this doctor be blessed

      @Wigg Licker The future holds no place for you… as you will soon discover.

    • Doctors(MDs) take the Hippocratic oath( depends on the country where they trained) regarding medical ethics. So no surprise about treating all patients.

    • I wish he didn’t say that over the airwaves. Trumper won’t like it and who knows what he will do…Blessings from my direction too

    The USA is a grotesque parody of a modern developed democratic country.
    It is sick, greedy, barbaric and corrupt. A truly failed society.

    • In the name of cheap patriotism ,a lot of people are destroying America by following blind a mad demagogue,but they will be the last to realize that.

      @snoop alert
      “professors??” they’re all busy coming up with a vaccine against Covid. I imagine you’ll refuse to have it because it will breach your “rights?”
      I know your mantra: “my ignorance is the equal of your knowledge”.

      No, but Americans have been indoctrinated that they are “indispensable” and “exceptional”.
      Trump’s not unusual in his boasting and puffery, he’s yet another American who believes the hype and many do, even many intelligent, rational Americans have a belief that they’re better than anyone else.

  13. Studies are looking at the role of vitamin d, immunity, and respiratory function and the higher prevalence of covid deaths among black, latino, and hispanic people in the US who also have higher rates of vitamin d deficiency.

  14. There are still decent people who care about other humans despite all the problems.

    • Max claire : Those, “decent people,” are under siege on the streets of Portland, facing down Unconstitutional Secret Police units. Any decent American would be DEMANDING they’re disbanded and outlawed! BEFORE they expanded, as Trump announced, to three quarters of ALL FEDERAL LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS! They are NOT going to ALLOW, “Elections.” They KNOW they are going to JAIL, and the Trump’s enablers are SO COMPROMISED, they’ll fight WITH TRUMP rather than join him in JAIL! The instrument of your suppression is staring you in the face. Your Republic has ALREADY FALLEN! They will fight tooth and nail to stay out of jail, and the ONLY way that happens, is if they REMOVE DEMOCRACY! That decision is already made. The only question remaining is, are YOU a decent American? Are YOU willing to protest, donate, inundate your representatives, and make it your business to OUTLAW the Secret Police units, BEFORE they are expanded? They need to be OFF AMERICA’S STREETS! Right now!

  15. This Dr. and his colleagues have shown more courage and compassion in this 3.48 minute interview than trump has show his entire life.

      And a proud Hispanic doctor, the same people Trump wants to keep out of the U.S., giving his all to save his patients.

    • @Rosanna Rivero Absolutely, his patients and America are lucky to have him/them.

  16. Meanwhile, #OrangeMoron enjoys another weekend of golfing.

  17. Those poor people. All of them. And what a special man. Love and blessings to you all. <3

    America is such a third world country, somebody has just painted over the rotten bits and put a ribbon on the holes so that you don’t see it until you look. The whole world is looking now. This doctor is one of the heroes.

  19. First step to recovery: Shun and shame all *evangelicals,* sworn *enemies* of fact, personal integrity, good faith, and honest testimony before men or gods. They are *the darkest evil of our times.*
