      @ra5928 when you make masks mandatory. they aren’t going to sacrifice their career over it. the vast majority still think it is useless. some things never change – *The Swine Flu Fraud of 1976 – (60 Minutes with Mike Wallace)*

    • @Crystal Giddens But masks are still not mandatory, you still haven’t shown any evidence, but 1 person talking about swine flu, and I just realized that you’re an anti-vaccination person so you’re not worth discussing

      @A D Many businesses are now requiring employees and even customers to wear a mask. OK dismissed.

    • @Crystal Giddens But these are private businesses, and have nothing to do with doctorates, the government has not ordered anything

    • Crystal Giddens | June 17, 2020 at 2:38 PM | Reply

      @A D *wrong again.* the government has by fiat ordered them, most of them (companies), to comply with “reopening” standards, especially those that borrowed money but many who did not. they have labeled it the “new normal.” next they intend to track and trace us and presumably require vaccinations in order for us to work and or travel. parents may even lose their children (calling it child neglect) if they do not vaccinate themselves and their children etc.

  2. That is just insane. Completely insane.

  3. Wear masks, it works in hospitals, why it shouldn’t works outside of hospitals!

      @Deborah Freedman they do more harm than good for the general population. your body needs to expel waste through the exhaling process. biology 101. in certain environments they are a reasonable precaution but the effectiveness of masks has never been proven.

    • Crystal Giddens | June 17, 2020 at 4:29 PM | Reply

      @Deborah Freedman I should have said they are a reasonable precaution in certain closed environments such as an operating room.

  4. Coz’ why listen to Science, when there’s money to be made, right? They can hide the true figures of the dead, anyway? And, they can tell ‘em, “God wants you to stop wearing masks,” right? That’s a popular one? . . . SMH

    • Demonstrate Ur gawd : The Bible predicts this. Which is why Jesus will remove the candles of the churches. Because most of them are overrun with false prophets.

  5. Is stupidity compulsory in the US? Puzzled foreigner.

      It’s a GOP thing.

    • @Ash Roskell The ethnic minority ministers in Boris Johnson’s cabinet don’t represent any real progress – they are among the most hard-right figures in the Tory party. Under the new immigration rules these ministers have helped introduce their own parents would never have been able to settle in the UK.

    • @MTA Denizen Sadly we know the difference however we don’t know if Americans know that, You see our textbooks have always told us that you were the United States of America and we just haven’t seen anything united about your country since the Clinton administration. It seems that since the GOP tried and failed to oust Clinton, there has been one country who believes in truth and that all share as equally as possible in the American dream and then you have Republican states and the GOP leadership. The only thing the GOP leadership want is power and all the taxpayer money they can steal and they use the Republican led states to accomplish this. Through the disgusting process of deregulation they have even opened up everyone’s hard earned pensions to wall street gamblers. And we all know what Wall Street did in 2008 because very few industrialized countries were not hit hard in some ways by that debacle. We know that with all this extra cash available it’s only a matter of time before Wall Street and the Republican donors are going to bring the financial world crashing again. We know it. We know the Democrats have the right ideas but trying to get anything useful to the entire American citizenry will never happen so long as there is a Republican President, Senate and House. The world keeps tabs on what your doing because we know that someday, it will affect us. When the GOP wins the Presidency and Senate, we also know that no good will come from it. All the world asks of you is to bring those F**kers to their knees so they cannot be revived to live on in their current form. They are a danger to the US and to the world. We can see this. Why can’t Americans.

      Most doctors say the mask don’t help. The doctors who left “disgusted” were activist doctors

    • @Crystal Giddens Initially it was thought that masks used by the general population wouldn’t help, but more information and research has changed this opinion. For example, you could be asymptomatic but have the virus and be infective. A mask would help to avoid passing the virus on to, say, an elderly parent or relative who might become seriously ill. The choice is up to you of course. Some people don’t like their parents or relatives.

    The council will regret it

    • Wade Stanton | June 17, 2020 at 9:11 AM | Reply

      I have a feeling the council will rejoice in their unity, canting USA USA as the parade of hearses pass by on monroe street

  7. Disgusting. Take care folks.

    What do you expect from alabamy. The most racist state in the union. Surpris, Surprise says gomer pyle.

  9. It was a mistake telling them it was killing 95% black people.

  10. Steve Morris | June 17, 2020 at 4:11 AM | Reply

    Perish the thought that these crooks should ever do anything in the public interest..

  11. The US is dead last in response to the outbreak. Trump still thinks it’s a hoax.

      @SouthSide Chicago Right, you’ve been more than clear that you don’t support Americans or America.

    • Jeremy Backup | June 17, 2020 at 10:35 AM | Reply

      @Eco Geek Trump currently has the lowest approval ratings of any President, at any point in their presidency, at any point in History. Trump is currently the least popular President in all of American History.

      @Crystal Giddens At least you’ve mastered copypaste. But pasting the same wrong comment a dozen times, doesn’t make it any closer to truth.

      @Gabe Dudley you can so go to church all it takes is a few thousand rubber bullets and you canstand outside holding a bible upside down

    • @Tom Price Trump has the lowest approval in the history of US Presidents you numpty. Don’t forget to mention that if your Auntie had balls, she would be your Uncle.
      Trump is filth.

  12. We don’t want to be united with such states . We accept the sick, but not the unwilling.

  13. Wise people learn by observing others’ mistakes. Foolish people ONLY learn when they are reaping the rewards of their own mistakes.

      …although it’s different for kiddy diddler communist democrats, because they never listen to other people, never do research, never learn from mistakes and yet believe they’re gods.

    • @muhammad was a pedophile caravan robber Well, your stupidity is beyond repair

    • BLM is a communist terror organization | June 17, 2020 at 5:59 AM | Reply

      @A D lol, but seriously though… What IS the difference between communists and kiddie fiddler democrats?

    • @BLM is a communist terror organization You know a simple google search can answer all your questions, research a topic, don’t just watch Fox and blindly follow their statements

  14. outrageous! ty dr maddow, we need to know this. the ignorance of some politicians, and their utter lack of concern for their own citizens, is just mind-boggling!

    Alabama welcome to the Coronavirus fan club! Your state will soon join Florida, North Carolina, Texas, and many more red states into the race for winner of Coronavirus cases!

  16. Consciously spreading a deadly contagious virus with no cure for political reasons is called bioterrorism.

  17. I’ve lived in Alabama for 3 yrs… no wonder that state is a republiKKKcon pit of despair! Broke, deserted and unable to develop for decades… even worse than it was in the 90’s…

    US is finished in fighting this virus.

    And it’s all the partisan GOP party and it’s voters fault for electing an inept, corrupt and partisan party into power.

    Telling Republicans 90% are black is like telling a kid to eat more cake!

    • What you just said is absolutely HORRIBLE!

      Because, sadly, IT’S TRUE!

      For those of us older, it’s so hard to believe that we, here in 2020, still have SOOOO MANY “people” who are SOOOOO INCREDIBLY filled with such hate as to let our brothers and sisters die. And they allow it so easily and without conscience.

      Josue, your comments are exactly right.
      Please do keep safe and healthy.

    • Re-Trumplicans

    • @apauls Perfect! LOL
      And Trumplicans are just like
      “re-purposed” furniture.
      Old and useless!

      Good thing that the illegals of 76 genders are still fighting the racist trees, milk, and math.

  20. Black folks in Alabama, wear a mask. Don’t wait for someone to tell you to, just do it.
