  1. Please take steps to bring tRump and his criminal crew to justice for failing to respond to the pandemic responsibly and allowing over 250,000 Americans to die unnecessarily, while fraudulently claiming voter fraud without evidence.

      @A Writer They would not know the difference between communism, socialism, liberalism, progressive thinking… even! Someone told me that Hitler was a socialist. 🤯

  2. Solving this problem is going to require a lot of teamwork and discipline so of course here in the United States, we are pretty much screwed.

      You can blame the president no doubt about it but the American citizens gotta share the blame as well. Look at how they going crazy traveling during thanks giving even after being told not to do so even after being witness to the rise of cases throughout the country. Airports are full the highways are full… Are the people in America just tone deff? You can only blame the people in power so much. This virus is testing each individual separately. You and you alone are responsible for your actions. Donald Trump can only be blamed so much. Yes he and his administration failed to do their part but you had other people warning you all to do the right thing, your citizens did not listen to anybody even after loosing more people than any war your’ll were Inn your citizens are tone deff. Soon majority of them are gonna end up tone dead… It’s shocking…

      @Lloyd B why did you guys vote him Inn for president if your’ll aren’t gonna listen to what he says and not travel and stay safe? I’m confused. CDC says don’t travel, all health officials say the same the President Elect says don’t travel but the US citizens are out and about filling planes and busses and the works… You guys are gonna not have anything left on the map and Trump’s gonna get that huge Red wave after all… It’s already everywhere soon there’s gonna be not a spot that isn’t red… 💔

    • @Muhammed Shah Mia I agree. It’s in our nature to live too much today, regardless of the consequences tomorrow. A nation of dedicated teenagers, it seems.

      @Joe Zamecki no vaccine can cure ignorance… Unfortunately the cost of that ignorance are the many lives that have been lost. Do you think people are ignorant because of the vaccine news? Do they not realize that by the time the vaccines do get approved and manufactured then packaged and shipped out and then administered it isn’t going to be done by the end of 2021 I seriously doubt it… Nothing so far has worked without a glitch especially in the USA 😔 by people not hunkering down to minimize the infection rate, loss of life and hospital strain they actually making it worse. If the hospital staff are already burned out now while cases are going through the roof before thanks giving leave alone christmas and all the other get together holidays what is going to happen? Do citizens not realize the same hospital staff are going to be needed to administer the vaccines??? 😔😔😔 You guys seriously need Biden to bring these things up publicly at least try and get some sense into peoples heads…

    • The first thing that needs to happen is the misinformation problem needs to be fixed. Until that happens we can’t fix anything else.

  3. The frontline workers are truly the best of us.

    South Korea got their first case same day as US. They have required everyone to wear a mask since that first case. South Korea has lost 500 people. We have lost 260,000. Just sayin….

      @1Faith1Fate We could learn a lot. Thankfully, I never trusted trump’s lies and did my own research.

    • Reba Henderson | November 26, 2020 at 1:22 PM | Reply

      @Cookie Cutter I thought trump would at least keep his supporters safe but it appears he did not care for them either doing rallies in all the states suffering now.

      @ParArdua Well, more than half of America returned us to sanity by removing trump. We care about our country and refuse to allow the insanity to continue. Those that still support trump better move out of the way.

    • @Reba Henderson The phones are smarter than they are.

      @Emsley Wyatt Obviously, its smarter than some. If, you have a computer in your hand how could you not use it to learn more.

  5. “After the election it will just disappear” – Trump
    To you 70 million people that voted for this fool. Do not vote ever again, because an uninformed vote is worse than none at all.

  6. As all these foolish greedy people , causing more stress and pain , due to not listening to the doctor’s !!

  7. Makes me just want to hug those kind nurses.
    Sadly though, that’s exactly what we shouldn’t be doing.
    And that’s what makes this so tough.
    Be safe out there! 🙌🙏

    • Great way to ramp up the spread, go hug nurses..

      @Erik Raudr learn to read! He knows, he can’t. But would be nice if it would not be dangerous. Exactly that what he said…

      No hugs, but you could send a bunch of flowers or chocolates to your local hospital with a note for the staff (don’t forget the cleaners, cooks, orderlies, etc are doing it tough too). That would brighten their day.

    Practice the 3 Ws:
    WASH your hands frequently
    WEAR your face mask properly
    WATCH your distance

  9. It’s like saying we have a surplus of weapons manufactured, but not enough trained soldiers to wield it.

  10. The president was responsible for the protection of the people he failed that’s why the covid spread so fast , there are steps to take to avoid the spread he failed all the warnings

    • Those non-maskers!

    When McConnell unilaterally decided to stop the movement of the second relief bill in May, he was also blocking these funds for training and paying nursing staff and providing PPE. His arrogance and indifference to ‘we the people’ should not go unpunished.

  12. This was administered by the Trump Administration….

  13. You can’t replicate doctors and nurses the same way you make PPE and ventilators but anyone can make a President, it takes no skill at all.

  14. Imagine being a nurse and then hearing morons tell you it’s a hoax? Medical workers are risking their lives and idiots blindly follow trump

  15. The nurse asking for people to be considerate and wear a mask in order to protect others….good luck with that.

    The “MuH FrEeDuMB” egotistical crowd will have none of it.

  16. Define irony:
    The people who went to med school and got an education have to treat uneducated conspiracy folks who think masks are a joke.

    The “but it’s just a flu” kind of people are garbage humans.

    • and are ending up in bags in semi freezer trucks.
      please everyone shelter in place- wear masks when out if you have to go out,
      stay home and help these Nurses & Doctors who are risking THEIR LIVES.
      to all those who don’t care or don’t believe why don’t you volunteer and help then.
      get a close look before you add to the problem esp. for someone else.

    • Who cares about garbage leftists like you, and all liberals.

    • @KaunasKid Wow, aren’t you getting political? She never said anything about conservatives, republicans, liberals, democrats but you took it there. You just showed her, garbage person.

  18. This morning, I woke up thinking of all the nurses and doctors who don’t get a holiday.

  19. The nurses have to be there in place of the family. Must be emotionally draining.

  20. It must be heartbreaking for the medical professionals to know that in this battle, their leader is their worst enemy
