    This shows once again, the people that can do something about it don’t care about the people with it. No one cares about the 99%ers, how many rich people have contracted covid? They want us to die.

    • The Tweatles … no one should die of capitalism. All these big companies getting bail outs and it will come out eventually how Trump and his family profited off this pandemic. DumpTrump 2020!

      @Susan C I Hope Trump benefits in some way… obviously her would deserve every penny.

    • Renas Dupont .. there will be a second wave because you patriots aren’t protecting yourselves at these protest. Not because of Covid itself, but because you think all of this is one fantastic hoax. I wish you and your family well.

    • The Tweatles ….Trump brings multiple deficiencies to the job that prevent him from having the self-reflection that makes good leadership.

      He only prioritizes himself and in the process fools enough people into thinking he cares about the whole country. His supporters won’t admit it because to do so would mean admitting their mistake of trusting him in the first place.

      At this point, there isn’t much that can be done aside from increasing ICU capacity and airlifting patients to Albuquerque.
      The logistics of the first option are difficult. Even if the equipment is available, you aren’t going to be able to staff the temporary ICUs with the right nurses and doctors for the job, who are in really high demand everywhere.

    • Trump recently announced they would get $600 million through Cares Act.

    • Moe Snert if you run for president on the anarchy party ticket I’ll vote for you.

    • Lordess So you’re claiming they would fare better under a Democratic administration? 🤣🤣🤣🤣. GTFOH

      Do you know the definition of the word Native?

    • Dae Dotfan19 | May 18, 2020 at 10:51 PM | Reply

      @LAST CALL I hope that’s a rhetorical question. Because I do know what native mean.

    • Dae Dotfan19 | May 18, 2020 at 10:52 PM | Reply

      @LAST CALL I’m a descendant of Native American. But I still stand with them because that’s my heritage and my ancestry. Because my great-grandmother was Native American. And her tribe was Cherokee.

  7. Made in America, we ranked 37th in health care system amongst developed nations, those SOB’S in Congress crying we are the wealthiest nation in the world.

    • @MrSparklespring go completely broke? Lol…. never me. Too easy to make $ here in the US to do that!

    • @Julie Ring Da fuk what?

    • MrSparklespring | May 18, 2020 at 9:24 PM | Reply

      @D Ross Good for you then, I don’t envy you!

    • @D-BO 842 How do you think civilised countries around the world that have universal health care manage to provide free health care for everyone? You could have it too if you didn’t pay taxes to fund ongoing US wars. Almost one trillion dollars a year spent on killing and destruction overseas instead of providing good health care and education for the US population. The US health care system is ranked #37 in the world. Proud of that, are you? $3 trillion is the estimated amount needed to repair and or replace crumbling infrastructure (bridges, dams, roads, drinking water and sewage treatment, etc.) in the US, but it doesn’t get done. Why spend it at home when you can have fun murdering people, blowing up their cities, and destroying the economy of their countries?

    • @MrSparklespring Yes sir. All it takes is action and dedication. Most people just dont have it. Their choice.

      @C.A.T. Wrong you liberal brainwashed fool. It was unstoppable especially when you have Democrat governor’s trying to get it out of hand. My poor red hick state never shut down never slowed down and we have less than 70 people in hospitals right now with the virus. We have more hospitals than individuals with covid.

      @C.A.T. The last thing we want is for the Navajo to have uranium. Next thing you know they have a bomb trying to blow up pale face.

      @Ocasio-Cortez4prez2022 The only reason affirmative action exists is because those like YOU, used to and would deny any non white equality. Now get back to your Trump rally.

    • Ocasio-Cortez4prez2022 | May 18, 2020 at 10:19 PM | Reply

      @NOEL CORDERO why do you assume I’m white? And why do you think people need different regulations based on race? You don’t think non whites can succeed, without given an extra advantage? That sounds pretty racist to me.

    • @7X HARDER

      Without white people they wouldn’t have civilization.

    • @Trumpism is fascism

      Libturds don’t go up.

    Just one of the many forgotten groups in this crisis. Horrid leadership from the fed govt. A further insult to all of our treaties with the Navajo, and another example of the need for affirmative action.

    Oh my god what have we done to these poor people – we took away their land and now they are totally dependent on the broken system – the US is responsible for the horrible treatment of Native Americans.

    Environmental injustice + political indifference = shameful tragedy.

  18. There is a story about a First Nations reserve asking for PPE and they received body bags instead.

  19. The way the feds are acting with the Navajo is true genocide. First they asked for help they were sent bodybags. Now we know why.

    Keep this in mind: Less Indians to claim land means more land for the government
