    It’s time for term limits in both the house and senate. Some have been in for 30-40 years. This is not a career it’s a job to serve your country and then leave and let others serve.

      @capoislamort100 maybe not as a whole, but there are a select few who will persevere, there always is.

    • @Bridgett Weaver here we going again…”but, but Obama/Hillary” “but, but Benghazi” but, but the emails”. Buts, buts and more buts 😂

    • @DK crate You’re right. Absolutely no way we should let the “young people” take over. That being said you agree that the “young people” who will be taking these lifetime court sits and backed by the federalists, tRump and McConnell, should be stricken.

      Before term limits we need to overturn citizens untied. The career politicians won’t change anything until the The Supreme Court takes the power away from the 1%.

  2. New York has only itself to blame for its situation. From friends in the Bronx and Brooklyn, they estimated that 75% of people there arrogantly didn’t take it seriously until early April.

      @waltermh111 I really feel sorry for most ppl in these big citys just not sanitary.

      @DubCmusicTV LOL, I’m wondering what planet she’s on! First case in the country was diagnosed January 21st in Seattle Washington. First death was February 29th, again Seattle Washington. De Blasio and Cuomo had all of February to see what this virus was doing in Italy and what was going on in China… SMH

    • @Jan Roach Maybe you should have listened when Trump gave the State of the Union speech and mentioned the coronavirus – you remember, the speech that Pelosi ripped up because it was “all lies, nothing but lies”. That was Feb 4th and you didn’t “hear about it” until late March?

    • And trumps idgits are running amuck calling it fake after all their bugged out leader has.

    • @Jan Roach its been here in US at least a year ago probably more the infectious disease Dr in Cleveland just didnt know what it was people were dying then and probably before like China they hid it.

  3. What’s this big whale worried about? When this whole crisis started he was the one that was telling everybody it was no big deal.

  4. Ask your governor, he’s in charge!

  5. Bill, was it just a month ago that you were telling New Yorkers to go to shows, restaurants etc?

  6. Yes Bill DROP DEAD!!

  7. How was Chinatown Mr. DeBlasio? It’s just like the flu right? Thats what you said right?

      Sounds like he believed what trump was spouting, that’s exactly what he said. Look it up its all out there. If there is lying from the president and people follow what he says this is the result.

      @Carol Irvine
      The President banned traveling to and from china January 30th..
      There wer no deaths, as yet, he was called,insulting names, racist, xenophobic, etc,.The President said for the public to be calm, and he placed the VP Pence, in charge for the coronavirus, and Dr Birx with Dr Fouchi, also, he called for REQUIREMENTS for nursing homes,
      other than giving updates in his briefings, the rest was left up to the drs,what did he lied about?? And how didn’t he applied himself, ???
      When Coumo in New York was on national TV calling for ventilators,
      the President had professionals, build a hospital,ventilators, masks, and protective equipment, in a matter of 3 days..also, and this is
      what I’m looking at, someone,found 1000 ventilators in a storage, in New York, wer Coumo was screaming about needing them, and had only so many, and what was he supposed to do, choose who lives or dies?? That exactly what he said..When coumo asked about the ventilators that wer found, he said ,this…
      ” well, they don’t need them now, but they will need them later””
      Thank you for sharing
      Be safe

      @Carol Irvine
      And your stupidity has no boundaries..
      Another words, your above and beyond stupid,
      What’s the kool Aid about?? Do you know??? I don’t want to carry on a conversation with you,believe me, but your answer, drinking a whole bottle of kool Aid,” it raises a question if you know what you talking about,..eghhh!!!!!

  8. No I think that was you when you told people to go out to Chinatown in mid March

    • Now that hes got America in the crapper bet hes celebrating. ..see the trumpies plan on getting off welfare and killing anyone who doesnt think deranged like they do, then i bet hes promised them what you have worked hard for.

    • Wasn’t that Piglosi?

    • No that was Pelosi on Feb 24th, she said everything is safe and to come out and enjoy Chinatown. She did this according to her on the news to combat racism because of the China travel ban. The next day SF went into lock down.
      de Blasio on March 2nd or 5th told people to go out and enjoy themselves if they feel well. Backed it up by going to a public gym.

  9. Isn’t he the guy that told New York City to live their lives and not listen to Trump?

    • Kathy Nickele | April 20, 2020 at 11:21 AM | Reply

      I’m sorry, did you think you were making a point? How do you think that one relates to the other?

    • Lord of the Fly' | April 20, 2020 at 11:32 AM | Reply

      @Kathy Nickele 👈🏻 voted for Hillary 😂😂

    • @Kathy Nickele Point is no one takes this clown seriously anymore. His own police force doesn’t respect him, his attempt at a presidential run was below embarrassing if not cringeworthy. You can’t deflect blame when you are on record giving horrible advice a month ago.

  10. Didn’t bill legit promote mass gatherings during the initial stages of COVID

  11. New York is the dirtiest City that I’ve ever been to

    • @You Tube If God is Punishing the United States Of America he is not doing a good Job.
      What has happened to the usual “Bolt” of lightning and Ten Plagues?
      I can’t get the Coronavirus and God is a stupid mythical character.

    • @Omega1st I could tell you why God is 100% real, but coincidence is a strong argument. The problem is the belief of Jesus. Many people have been dead, and even woke up in the morgue, even in prehistoric times. But something much more crazy happened when Jesus woke from his postmortem death. It’s why they protected his word so strongly.

    • @You Tube The Jesus story is not real.
      The Christian Cult is Egyptian oriented. The ancient Egyptians mummified their dead because they believed that the physical body would be important in the next life. Thus, preserving the body in as life like a way as possible was the goal of mummification.
      This is the foundation of Christianity.

    • @Omega1st you would have to definitely come up with a better story than that to convince many people who are much smarter than you….

      It has always Been Filthy ! What you mean it’ s More Filthy !

  12. Bill take some responsibility please…YOU weren’t prepared!

    • Nobody was prepared. People with their faces stuck to their gadgets and wrapped up in their own self absorbed world are to blame.

    • Bob Smith Obama was prepared in 2014 I wonder what happened since then? Oh thts right Donald chump happened

    • Bob Smith Obama was prepared in 2014 I wonder what happened since then? Oh thts right Donald chump happened

    • We were prepared until trump dismantled the Pandemic Task Force put in place by the Obama Administration back in 2018.
      Now here we are..

    • Eric Andersen | April 20, 2020 at 11:55 AM | Reply

      I dont give the administration a free pass here. A US epidemiologist was embedded with the Chinese CDC and that position was removed in July. Pandemic modeling was conducted and the results ignored

    Just like the ventilators and hospital beds, they say they don’t have enough, then they have too much and end up giving it away. Obvious sabotage going on.

    • @subliminal You should do a little research before spewing garbage, it would make you appear less stupid

    • bassmanbobbasscovers You left out the demand for more beds, so Trump had hospitals built and parked The Mercy in the Harbor. The hospitals are empty, and the medical staff on the ship got board and they went to work in the normal hospitals.

    • Alfred Basurto | April 20, 2020 at 8:38 AM | Reply

      Obvious murder is going on. Just because they are a Democrat state.

    • @Corona Pyrrhus I think he meant in the long run.

    • Honky Tonkinson | April 20, 2020 at 12:19 PM | Reply

      Alfred Basurto California is doing pretty well. I seem to recall that they are even more democrat than NY. Their governor is respectful to the president while asking for help, and was doing stuff to protect his state before anyone else. Maybe, just maybe, NY politicians mismanaged the situation, and consistent with their character are blaming others for their mistakes because they don’t care about anyone or anything but their career.

    Stop relying on China for manufacturing our medical supplies and pharmaceuticals. This should be a huge wake up call

  15. The sign language translator looks fake to me😂

  16. Patrick Fulmer | April 20, 2020 at 11:16 AM | Reply

    No. But de Blasio did when he told New Yorkers to go on out when the virus was spreading.

    • David Benjamin | April 20, 2020 at 3:50 PM | Reply

      Yeah Mr. deBlasio or deBlase, is a full-time bureaucrat, he did not want to keep the city open because he thought it was safe, he did it because he was not wanting to do anything. His pathetic argument about kids not getting food really shows the unwillingness to change the status quo

    • David Benjamin | April 20, 2020 at 4:00 PM | Reply

      Also if you want to look at the DOE statistics on students you will see that it is very possible that deBlasio had some impact on the racial disparity.

      SpectroMan how has trump worsened it?

    • Jereme Weatherbee | April 20, 2020 at 9:49 PM | Reply

      @SpectroMan Really? In the case of Mayor De Blasio, he literally told people to go on with their normal lives, and not worry about COVID-19, up until Mar 13th, His tune changed on Mar 29th when he was cornered on CNN by Jake Tapper about downplaying COVID-19, he had the audacity to say- We shouldn’t be focusing in my view, on looking back on any level of government, right now. aka- Don’t blame me. Fast forward to Apr 19, and 13,869 deaths later… IT’S TRUMPS FAULT!

      This video from the Washington Post says it all:

  17. Bill told everyone to go about their lives in md March. He down played this whole thing

  18. Rafael Núñez | April 20, 2020 at 11:20 AM | Reply

    Ask de Blasio why he didn’t close the schools for weeks when everyone was calling for it? Now teachers are dead because of the delay. Ask him why he does nothing about the crowded, dirty subways that are still getting people sick?

    • Show us the DEAD U SPK OF? Ill wait but try to find 1 b4 i get old..thanks. And 52 states W MANY CORRUPT GOVNURDS vs 1 MANLY GOD LUVIN presidents work ethic..ID go with the PRES & GOD.

    • Dadson worldwide | April 20, 2020 at 11:52 AM | Reply

      Or why he waited on his residents to spread it to neighbouring regions and states? It is a origin site and they did nothing to protect the country yet beg for it in return.
      A city richer than some countries so vulnerable. They were apparently more prepared than local leaders like him thought or there wouldn’t have been 4k ventaltors sitting in a new hersy warehouse or 5 k empty unused beds.
      Even though they admitted every mild symptom they still could be run the #s high as they wanted them to be.
      His nursing homes that are supposed to be quarantine tight sites from common viruses showed there poor leadership.

    • @EunSung Lee go bk to china AGENT!

    • El Gumbo hahaha your stupidity speaks for yourself hahahaha just laughing at you cuz you ain’t know s**t

  19. Why not keep taking money from Bloomberg and Soros? Oh yeah, that money is for Shifty Bill.

  20. Funny how when Trump does his “straight talk” the MAGA ragers love it, but when anyone else does it they’re told to shut up. Shoe’s on the other foot, ain’t it.
