  1. Ofcourse he hasn’t heard of testing being a problem. He thinks that “anyone who needs a test can get a test”. He’s been repeating it for weeks. And IT’S NOT TRUE! I know because I have coronavirus symptoms. I called my Doctor. She gave me a hotline number to call in my state. I called it, and I was told I probably have COVID-19, but I can’t get a test, because I don’t qualify. They are only testing people who are hospitalized in my state, or healthcare workers who are showing symptoms. How are we supposed to know who has coronavirus, when people AREN’T BEING TESTED?!

      ​@Love Real So if you are medical do you have advance practice disease? Did you study the spread of disease and what a vector zone, and the best practice about stopping it. Testing is help locate the source and who is infected. Yes you could be neg one day and positive the next. This is vital information needed for tracking the disease. Some hospital will not treat unless you have been tested. I think maybe your next CE should be on treatment of pandemic crisis

    • @Helen Pomerleau No I have not. I have been in healthcare 27 yrs. This is not rocket science. Stay away from people and u most likely will not get sick, for a healthy person. What do u do for work?

      @Love Real So you do not hold a lic. Well I ‘m retired RN and have been in Health Care for 35 yrs 5 years Cardiovascular, 15 Neuro Trauma, 10 CQI for state Ca 5 years as Hospice RN. Obivious you have no skills in how to treat and isolate in a pandemic, so stay away from hospital and pt. care

      @Love Real sorry if you misunderstood my comment.

      The longer you delay going to hospital the more severe the complications seem to be.

      Intubated cases have a mortality rate of up to 80% overall.

      @Gavin Coleman Dr. Deborah Birx on Tuesday said that medical experts failed to understand the seriousness of the coronavirus because of incomplete data coming out of China.

      “I think the medical community interpreted the Chinese data as that this was serious but smaller than anyone expected,” she said. “Because I think probably we were missing a significant amount of the data.”

      Birx spoke about the experts’ relationship with the data during a White House press briefing on Tuesday evening.

      She acknowledged frankly that when she saw early data from China reporting only 50,000 cases of the virus among the 20 million people in Wuhan, China, and the 80 million in Hubei province, she felt that the threat was similar to that of SARS, which had 8,098 cases globally and 774 deaths.

      The devastation hitting countries like Italy and Spain and South Korea gave the experts much more complete data, helping them draw models that were far more alarming.

      “Let’s see if we can do much better than that,” President Donald Trump said during the briefing, pointing to the models predicting 100,000 to 240,000 deaths in the United States.

      Trump noted that the virus was also more contagious than expected.

      “I think the one thing that nobody really knew about this virus was how contagious it was,” he said. “It’s so incredibly contagious, and nobody knew that.”

  2. Trump: “I take credit for everything. and responsibility for nothing. It’s the con-man’s creed.”

    • @Mego Stop not Trump’s fault. China deliberately tried to cover up the virus and refused US assistance as early as Jan 3rd. You see that right?

    • @ako tairiHey there, I share many of your thoughts on here. Yeah, I was making the point that the doctor conveniently disappeared. People in China that knew about this and wanted to help either ended up dead for mysteriously disappeared.

    • @ako tairi Yes, and I too do not believe this is Trump’s fault. I do have reservations about opening up America too soon. Of course, we need a plan for when that begins to happen but I sense Trump feels pressure from Americans to get things back to normal because as I said previously, Americans don’t like being inconvenienced and they have little patience. Also, there is probably an element of Trump wanting to salvage the economy before we end up in another great depression.

    • @Mego Stop oh I see, point taken. Yes, Americans don’t like being inconvenienced at all especially Democrats for the last 4 years. However as far as the economy goes Americans also won’t forget its ceiling breaking records prior to the Coronavirus, come election time.

    • Maddow the Hospital ship wont arrive

  3. How is it, that I, a civilian, have known that testing, test supplies, PPE, etc is *_ALL_* a problem/inadequate supply for demand, etc…for weeks now! Yet POS POTUS hasn’t heard it’s a problem? *I* am more informed than potus, thats scary!

  4. 25th ammendment PLEASE! When this is over every enabler needs to go down for manslaughter.

    The unintelligible part was “those are the positives”…

    • @connie baldwin – it amazes me how often things are written as unintelligible when they are often not too difficult to understand at all. More annoying when a second person talking isn’t in the captions as well. Eg. the NBC reporter he said asked a nasty question when he pointed at the camera and said he could give the country that hope at that moment.

    Governor: Testing is a problem.
    Trump: I haven’t heard about testing being a problem.

    Even in private he sounds like he’s just trying to dodge every question thrown at him.

      @j j It’s in exactly the context Rachel Maddow wants. She’s the one that said that we shouldn’t have access to the raw sources and that we should only information after her “editing and context”. But you are right, the very next word out of his mouth before she cut the audio was “but”.


    • Jed Clampett | March 31, 2020 at 5:15 PM | Reply

      The question is – when did Montana start to get low on Testing Kits, did they tell the CDC they needed more and if so, when? Did anyone tell Gov. Bullock the State was getting low on Testing Kits so he could ask for more? Was the conference call above the first anyone knew that Montana needed Testing Kits? My guess would be the answer is somewhere on the part of the call that was not aired – for obvious reasons – since Ms. Rachel is the one airing it.

  7. True, it is fatal leadership at the very top-spot on.

    • vanguardau – Trump is the best president in history. On Friday March 20, Fake News MSNBC’s Lying 🤥 Rachel Maddow said President Trump was lying when he said the U.S. Navy hospital ships would arrive in Los Angeles and New York City in the near future. Exactly a week later, the USNS Mercy arrived in the Port of Los Angeles.” Yesterday, the USNS Comfort arrived in New York, Chrissy Clark writes in The Federalist. Shame on lying Rachel and fake news MSNBC 👎

      Yes. The DNC is crap.

    • History will judge who was your best president, not some enamored Trump supporters David.

    • @vanguardau Shaaad up.

    • Somehow Lola, I think that’s how Trump would say it-a bit like The servant follows the master, uncanny.

    Rachel’s reaction after ‘I have not heard about testing being a problem’, ‘You’ve just heard about testing being a problem!!!’ … I have felt like that ever since he got elected. The vacuum inside his head is just seismic.

      @Wayne T were you born an imbecile or did you have to work at it throughout your life?

    • @The420Destroyer hey 1981 called. It wants it’s insults back. Your age is truly showing since your insults are almost as dated as the kind of opinions that’s needed to actually support that immoral, embarrasment for a world leader. You should watch yourself, grandpa. You fit the profile of those most vulnerable to the virus.

      @Wayne T did I hurt your feelings? I intended to. If you think I’m old you must be about 12 years old. While you’re home from school, go clean your room. I’ll give you a cookie.

    • @The420Destroyer yeah you hurt my feelings. I am soooo sad all i can do is weep in my bed about how a stranger with a single lame message has ruined my entire life… boo hoo.. oh will this nightmare ever end?? Oh no what has happened that all i have in my life is the sadness caused by people who destroy marijuana!!!
      Funny. Seriously though, it is quite telling when a person reads through and feel compelled to respond to 4 day old comments youtube. You should get a hobby. Maybe learn a language. Like Chinese since they are clearly overtaking.

      Nope, if anything actually, Trump has moved in and he’s going to lose his deposit because he’s trashing the place

    Hey puke 🤮 Wait what’s this!! The hospital ship arrives in New York

      francis blodgett you know what’s funny they took down the video of her saying that but citizen journalists didn’t. Lol Rachel you are a pathetic example of a journalist and I can’t wait until they yank you off the air! Btw still winning!

    • Im adding a comment to also note what a clown the Russian Hoax artist Madcow Maddow is. What a complete failure

    • OrangeManBad1776 , impeach, Russia, orange man bad, disastrous leadership, Maddow is expert on world, she expert on everything, she half man, half woman.

  11. “I haven’t heard about testing being a problem” – It’s like when someone has an issue with their Windows 10 installation and someone ‘helpfully’ tells you that their Windows 10 installation is working fine for them.

  12. I heard that if you can’t get tested to cough on a wealthy person and wait for their results to come through.

  13. lol Maddow reported the number of coronavirus deaths in China as if it were legitimate. I guess left wing propaganda machines gotta flock together.

      @Pamela Damaris no you !

    • @Matthew Huszarik But she has lied many times and has made many mistakes all because she hates Trump. THAT IS NOT NEWS OR REPORTING ITS AUTHORITARIAN.

    • Matthew Huszarik | April 8, 2020 at 11:58 PM | Reply

      Haaa aakk You need to learn what a lie is before you start accusing someone of lying. If you are given erroneous information and report it that isn’t lying that is reporting erroneous information. Also not reporting Republican’s alternative truth isn’t lying either, that is telling the truths Republicans don’t like to hear. Finally Republicans of all people on earth have no place to accuse anyone of lying. Trump is the King of Lies and all those that support him are just as bad.

    • @Devilz DandruFF there is no difference

    • @Matthew Huszarik Muh fascist!!!!!

    Mad Cow was dead wrong about the ship arriving in NY Harbor…TDS is worse than coronavirus

      You clearly are suffering from TDS yourself. I wish you a speedy recovery before COVID-19 impacts your life directly.

    • David Harrow | April 4, 2020 at 8:25 AM | Reply

      @Robert Syrett rachel lied. That is why they deleted the video after getting called out. She lies often.

  16. FYI Maddow those ships arrived in NY and L.A. So you’re completely full of it.

  17. “Ships wont be there for weeks”. Ships show up later that week. And nothing…

    • @a. barker You’re right. Maddow was being factious about a very serious problem. That is why i would not take her seriously.

    • @joe cole your comment before did not state that. So you don’t feel your comment was misleading?

    • @joe cole Trump won’t go on program that ask hard questions with immediate follow up and fact checking.

      Demonrats went nuts everywhere they go

    • @Viktor ScruelberG that’s because we can’t believe what trump is getting away with. And the republicans have no spine to stop him.

  18. “Attorney General Bill Barr has asked Congress for new sweeping emergency powers, that include holding people “indefinitely without trial” during times of emergencies” THIS REQUEST NEEDS TO BE STOPPED, ASK YOUR REPRESENTATIVES TO STOP THIS

  19. Hahahahahaha THE SHIP IS HERE YOU LIED

  20. Every day, for weeks, at these press conferences reporters ask him about the shortage of testing! And he says he has heard nothing of a shortage?

      The US is testing the most people of any country in the world and has therefore the highest numbers of cases. You people are nuts and probably even evil. As a foreigner I am shocked how a silly brainwashed you people by blatant propaganda like this.
