  1. ❤️love it Let’s all work together for a better future America 🇺🇸 protect your family wear a mask 😷 🇺🇸😷🇺🇸😷🇺🇸😷🇺🇸😷🇺🇸

    • Top Pathologist Dr. Roger Hodkinson told government officials in Alberta during a zoom conference call that the current c0rohna crisis is “the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on an unsuspecting public.”

      Hodkinson’s comments were made during a discussion involving the Community and Public Services Committee and the clip was subsequently uploaded to YouTube.

      Noting that he was also an expert in virology, Hodkinson pointed out that his role as CEO of a biotech company that manufactures c0fid tests means, “I might know a little bit about all this.”

      “There is utterly unfounded public hysteria driven by the media and politicians, it’s outrageous, this is the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on an unsuspecting public,” said Hodkinson.

      The doctor said that nothing could be done to stop the spread of the virus besides protecting older more vulnerable people and that the whole situation represented “politics playing medicine, and that’s a very dangerous game.

      Hodkinson remarked that “social distancing is useless because c0fid is spread by aerosols which travel 30 meters or so before landing,” as he called for society to be re-opened immediately to prevent the debilitating damage being caused by lockdowns.

      Hodkinson also slammed mandatory mask mandates as completely pointless.

      “Masks are utterly useless. There is no evidence base for their effectiveness whatsoever,” he said.

      “Paper masks and fabric masks are simply virtue signalling. They’re not even worn effectively most of the time. It’s utterly ridiculous. Seeing these unfortunate, uneducated people – I’m not saying that in a pejorative sense – seeing these people walking around like lemmings obeying without any knowledge base to put the mask on their face.”

      The doctor also slammed the unreliability of PCR tests, noting that “positive test results do not, underlined in neon, mean a clinical infection,” and that all testing should stop because the false numbers are “driving public hysteria.”

      Hodkinson said that the risk of death in the province of Alberta for people under the age of 65 was “one in three hundred thousand,” and that it was simply “outrageous” to shut down society for what the doctor said “was just another bad flu.”

      “I’m absolutely outraged that this has reached this level, it should all stop tomorrow,” concluded Dr. Hodkinson.

      Hodkinson’s credentials are beyond question, with the MedMalDoctors website affirming his credibility.

      “He received his general medical degrees from Cambridge University in the UK (M.A., M.B., B. Chir.) where he was a scholar at Corpus Christi College. Following a residency at the University of British Columbia he became a Royal College certified general pathologist (FRCPC) and also a Fellow of the College of American Pathologists (FCAP).”

      “He is in good Standing with the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Alberta, and has been recognized by the Court of Queen’s Bench in Alberta as an expert in pathology.”

    • @Chris McRae so you have crack pots in Canada too. Not surprising. I live in Vietnam right now, and have since just before the pandemic break out. Through a 100% border closure, testing, contact tracing, social distancing and basically 100% mask usage, in a country of 100 million (that actually shares a 700 mile long land border with China), the cases have been kept under 1,300, and deaths under 40. Thailand is the same. So is New Zealand and a few other in SE Asia. Your guy actually makes *more money* the more people get it, so it’s pretty clear what *HIS* game is- inflame the spread for profits.

    • Mask up and listen to the doctor! Wear a mask, social distance and wash your hands often. “Six Feet Over or Six Feet Under” Share if you care!

    • Yes Jesus cannot protect us only Rachel Maddow and the people who we’ve elected no best we are just a little people we are not smart like they are wear the mask you must wear the mask Jesus would tell you to wear the mask wears a mask in the name of God wear the mask

    • @Ozzz ozz Jesus would never enforce masks. God didn’t create the Heavens, the Earth, and everything in them just for us to put a mask over our faces.

      When did the world turn into a bunch of wussies? Everyone acting so scared of an invisible boogeyman. So what if covid kills people. So does cancer. So does driving a car. So does home repair. So does skydiving. Literally anything a person does in a day could result in death. THE FLU kills people. We don’t shut down society for that. H1N1 killed people. We didn’t shut down society for that. Ebola killed people. Mad cow disease killed people. The bubonic plague killed people. Guess what? Humanity is still kicking.

      I’m not living my life in fear of a virus with a low mortality rate. And I’m not conforming to these sick rules that are being enforced upon the world. Haven’t worn a mask yet, and I never will.

  2. We love you Rachel. Hope Susan continues to get better everyday. Stay safe. Stay Healthy.

    • @Jorge Mario Bergoglio I honestly find you far more perverse. And miles farther than Rachael and her partner from what the Bible teaches about… everything- Love, forgiveness, acceptance, judgement, community, fellowship…. and Christianity.

    • K..ohyes

    • Jorge Mario Bergoglio | November 21, 2020 at 5:15 AM | Reply

      @neal thailand you are a big fool to interpret the bible like Satan. God sent fire and brimstone to destroy Sodom and Gonorrhea. So will he destroy these wild animals in CNN and MSNBC newsrooms.

    • @Jorge Mario Bergoglio Thank you for taking the time to explain you do not understand the difference between the old and new testaments of the Bible, or the impact and import of the message that Jesus Christ came to us and died for. I’m sorry for you.

    • @neal thailand… and yet here you are.!! 😜😭🤣❤️ Hypocrisy runs deep in Christianity.

  3. 😷 Wear a mask.
    🧼 Wash your hands.
    👣👣👣 Keep 6 feet socially distance.
    Skype or Zoom Thanksgiving.
    It’s not that difficult, it’s a lot easier than using a ventilator.

    • @Sheila Boston I am so glad to hear that Sheila. Hopefully good things to come. My daughter lives in USA and i should be there right now visiting her, but of course i cant be. Hopefully this time next year i will be there. By then hope things are back to something more normal. All the best Sheila.

    • @Sheila Boston yeah we don’t want people not wearing a mask because if I have a mask on and they don’t they could make me sick because I know the mass doesn’t protect me it only protect other people

    • I have done all that, tested negative… but it does nothing against the real flu! It got by and is the worst case I have had in 13 years! LOL. Like the Honeybadger, this flu doesn’t give a ****! Cheers and be safe all.

    • Exactly. Be sensible. Be careful. We are in a pandemic, for goodness sakes. Happy Thanksgiving!

    Anyone with the slightest bit of empathy or compassion would try their best not to get sick, in order to protect the nurses and doctors, their immediate family, and so on. I’m a veteran. I’ve risked my life willingly. I’ve experienced rockets flying over my head, along with fellow Soldiers who were there at the time. Some never returned home. But to come back to this, a nation divided, half of which refuse to wear a mask? It makes me question the nation I put my life at risk for, when half of a nation doesn’t seem to care about anything aside from themselves. If freedom isn’t free, then why do they insist that freedom requires no sacrifices? One half of America doesn’t deserve the freedoms they have, because they don’t understand what it took to give them that luxury. It took sacrifices.

    • For the males in this thread, concerned
      about the secret loss of that other part
      of your anatomy, there IS “hope”….👈😏

      Modern science will soon be producing
      “Replacement 👈😁👉 testicles”….

    • 💞💞💞 *hugs* from a grateful Canadian, be well and stay safe !

    • Ron_the_Skeptic | November 21, 2020 at 7:11 PM | Reply

      @Mary Cunningham, yeah, they’re not. The fourth largest city in North America was just put under lock-down because of rising cases. Since masks are required to be worn, by law, and since compliance appears to be quite high, we can conclude the 40 years worth of scientific reports that say masks are not helpful against a virus are correct.
      If you are going to try your best to not get sick, as Brandon Tyler Poole implores you, a better path is to eliminate as much sugar, carbohydrate, and fructose from your diet as you can. The object is to clean up your insulin resistance. Eliminate seed oils and other lab manufactured “food”, Crisco, margarine, sunflower oil, safflower oil, rapeseed oil, soy products, etc. Then, supplement vitamin D at somewhere between 3,000 and 6,000 IU per day depending upon how much vitamin D you are getting from other sources and how far north or south from the equator you live and how white your skin is.
      Sadly, the government knows, or should know, this is the correct path, but they are silent about this because of the money they get from food companies that put profit in front of your health. This has made roughly 88% of Americans suffer from metabolic problems, mostly related to insulin resistance and heart disease.

    • @Donnie Baker to you and anyone worried that wearing a mask might “compromise your masculinity”… don’t worry. You didn’t have any to start with. Not if anything as minor as mask usage can compromise it. You’re in that same tiny dicked life boat as the guys that used to say that wearing a seat belt wasn’t “manly”…

  5. I live across the pond in the UK so don’t do Thanksgiving but found Rachel’s story very moving. Her love for her partner really shone through. I admit that I did shed a tear. She is amazing 😢

  6. Prayers and hugs for Susan hang in there loves,

  7. Rachel’s comment about the “macho man” not caring if he gets himself or his wife infected.. Also not caring if he gets sick and dies, thus breaking the hearts of all those close to him.. I have thought about this aspect heavily for several weeks.. As I am SUPER careful . ALL the time.. I just keep thinking of my 15 sweet grandchildren.. my 5 children their spouses.. my sister .. .. how “their” sadness would be what I would NEVER want to cause.. It’s for them.. It’s for everyone. This is not a difficult concept … Again, thank you Rachel and Lawrence .. Such an important .. critical message.. so perfectly presented…

    • Hey, your loved ones are in their 70’s and 80’s, I know it’s hard you have to let them take those risks. You have to look at it the basically everyone who isn’t in their ’70s and ’80s, So everyone 60 and under we are the secret service agents for America’s old people. They’re 70 and 80 they don’t care if they’re going to die because they’re going to die. Our job is to be responsible so they don’t spend their golden years, limited. Look I know it sucks. But I’m not going to tell my nana she can’t go meet her friends, because I can’t stay home.

    • H..ohyes

      Not even to ashes they’ll ever believe! Ye should cudgel ’em black and blue, those moronic MAGA, the cretinous rogues of Orange Braggadocio.

    • @Messer Forestiero I’m in total agreement

    • @Messer Forestiero I don’t understand what you’re saying? Can you say that in a different way?

  8. Larry is such a class act.

  9. I literally love these two people, who I don’t know from Adam, because they are REAL. And I love how much Lawrence loves Rachel. It makes me love him more. Happy Thanksgiving to you all.

    • I saw Santa Claus on the screen
      a lot !….👈😳….

      I wonder why MSLSD 👈
      hasn’t “interviewed” the
      the dude yet ?….👈🤔…..

    • ….and I would REALLY like to know
      how the “Easter Bunny” does his thing
      without being seen….👈🤔….

      But “the screen” has been
      no help in finding out
      the “REAL” process…👈😳…

    • However I remain skeptical of
      this “Tooth Fairy” thing….👈😒….

      Won’t believe it, until I see
      him/her on “THE SCREEN”….👈😉..

    • “The SCREEN” kinda blew that
      whole “CNN/NICK SANDMANN”
      RRRRRRRRRRREAL thing, though…👈😒

    • Someone just showed me
      (on “the SCREEN”), a dude
      jackhammering his “johnson”
      into another dude’s “pooper”….👈😳…

      That’s “REAL”……👈😳….


  10. I just have to say how much I enjoy Rachel and Lawrence no matter what they are talking about. They are just so special! After hearing Rachel earlier talking about Susan I called my son and asked him not to go to his friends house for TG. I was fearful of what may happen with this Virus. We talked and he agreed it isn’t the time to see anyone right now. He promised for me that he would not go. Thank you for talking about this, it helped. 🙂

    • INORITE! Each of them is the smartest person they know…and if you don’t believe me, just ask them.😏

    • I have family in FL and they drank the Koolaid despite my appeals to them. I’m so sad and worried.

    • The pilgrims 👈😏👉 had to endure
      many plagues of disease….

      They remained “thankful”, that
      they also did not have to endure
      “spazzed out libturds with masks”…

      “Happy Thanksgiving” to you, from our
      family (29) gathering (one foot apart,
      like gavin newsome) around
      our tables…..👈😁…

    • No doubt that Rachel’s video will have saved lives this Thanksgiving. I’m one of those “5th wheels” floating around alone this year, and even if I were to get a last-minute Thanksgiving invitation from a friend this year, I would politely decline — for all our sakes.

    • @Magic Unicorn
      Soooo, ya got no friends…..👈😏…

      Sucks to be you…👈😉…

  11. Rachel, you are loved sooooo much. Nobody cares about the background of your home which is private and everyone has their own style. Plus Rachel, you are blessed with naturally good looks without make up. Just stay just and honest in your news n THAT IS IT!!

    • We all loved Rachel Maddow she sends a Vibe out that makes us want her

    • Beauty is very important it’s not superficial. When you get old Rachel Maddow you won’t be pretty then we can’t tell you this. But right now you’re okay so you better get do you have any fun now

    I watched Rachel last night and it was so heartwarming!!!

  16. I second Lawrence’s kind words to Rachel, she’s always been really private so it must have been hard to share. I hope Susan is continuing to feel more herself every day.

  17. New chant: “Don’t violate the bubble!”

  18. I love the friendship and mutual respect these two show each other.

  19. The best thing about Rachel and Lawrence is that the viewer has a strong sense, if they have any ability to judge character, that these are two decent human beings. Full respect to the both of you. You’re doing your best to help people by being straight up, at a time when many are just confusing and frightening people with either paranoid conspiracy theories or straight out lies. Good health to you & yours.

    • Yes these two people are the cream of the crop. They can teach us so much. But we must be willing to listen!!! Don’t believe in Jesus Christ because that is all a lie. Rachel Maddow is better than Jesus Christ she is the best!! Rachel Maddow. Loves us!!! Never believe the lies that people say about Rachel Maddow!! Rachel Maddow is the second coming of Christ!! Rachel Maddow has the ultimate Authority you must listen to her if you don’t you will regret it because you will get covid-19!! Rachel Maddow we love you we worship you keep up the good fight!!!

    • Now that’s funny thank you

  20. Thank God for Rachel Maddow, the most “real” journalist and empathetic human being. Sharing her story was from a place of love, both for her partner Susan and for her audience. I feel blessed that I am in a position to be informed by her 5 days a week.
