  1. If we over prepare? Surely you forgot who our greatest president is.

    • Printagic Online I could explain sarcasm to you but I cannot understand it for you.

    • @Printagic Online He did something else early on… refused the testing kits offered to all countries ..

      @Don Anderson to be fair Don…
      Text is monotone.
      And in this day and age it is hard for people to see if you are either an ignorant Trump supporter, or a sarcastic critic of this administration.
      Just saying, keep an open mind and roll your eyes if they didnt get the comment was tongue and cheek.
      We can both say this impeached president did drop the ball pretty hard though.

      Raven Rodriguez the senate dropped the ball,or theirs whichever.

  2. These are the only ones you can trust. The Dr.’s that go on TV and tell the truth, good or bad. I’ve given up on believing anything that comes out of Washington.

      @Troy Stocker Being anti liberal is very un-American of you, what don’t you like about freedom and liberalism? Considering Liberalism is a political and moral philosophy based on liberty, consent of the governed and equality before the law. are you some kind of a fascist or Russian troll? You must be a russian troll is my guess.

    • @Troy Stocker where ya at? I’m constructing a brick house out of my own quarry, where I made my own bricks, and I have time to reply, as a liberal, so what’s going on here? You talk trash and then dissappear? Do hard working liberals scare u or something? Are you scared to discuss government with hard working liberals? Get some coffee, have a steak, snap to, seems like you’re slow on the draw here. Can’t talk smack then leave. I’ll just assume you threw your phone in a creek then ran off into the woods to hide from the liberals.

    • Witness how they are now trying to cover their arses for spreading fake panic and fear as millions of americans now have even more financial burdens. All thanks to leftest media and their control group supporters. Wtg

    • @MadLink 🤣🤣🤣🤣

    • Because doctors aren’t politically motivated or worried about pleasing their financial donors or obsessed with re-election.

  3. The preparation should have been done months ago…too late.

      Remember his genius gut told us that we had 15 cases and we would go down to 0 soon. His gut is not working; he needs to listen to the experts and follow their recommendations.

      @Tanner Shortnacy It’s also in Australia and it’s summer there.

    • @David Hale No worries. Things will naturally flow away….SMH. Btw, our leaders are supposed to be critiqued. If we don’t, we’re not doing our job.

      Melissa Smith trying to talk sense into the senseless. It ain’t working.

      @Tanner Shortnacy Actually the first results indicate, that this corona virus may react to weather conditions (fine!), but only on a very low scale (bad!). It’s much less seasonal than the flu.

    Did this man really just say that “the time to prepare is today”?

    Bruh we should have started preparing 2 months ago. President Cheeto instead chose to call it a democratic hoax.

    History is not repeating itself today, it’s writing itself. Strange time to be alive.

      Giving that is the 3rd disease break out coming from Asia in the 21st century I would say yes it is repeting itself only we don’t learn about it and this time it came harder…Remember SARS?

    • I know, first time a large part of the world has gone into lock-down. Never seen that in lifetime, I keep remindingy students to write down what they are going through in this (i hope) unique experience, it’ll be a historic document.

    But Impeached Trump is more worried about how he looks than the lives of Americans.

  9. Is Donald making America great again like it was in 1918 or 1929 I can’t be sure

  10. Really worried that this Govt will start treating #coronavirus as an image problem, like every other problem it encounters.

    Because when preventing spread of a disease becomes a national ego issue, numbers get suppressed, deaths are under-reported and mass media is manipulated.

    Are you tired of winning MAGA folks?

      @Debbie Charron Anyone who can’t even master basic spelling (Dudley) doesn’t have the sense to parade his sloppy writing and thinking so publicly. The great thing about YouTube comments is that this type of ignorance is publicly displayed for all to see. The more he writes the more easily anyone can see how critical aspects of clear thinking are plainly absent.

      @Gabe Dudley True. Along with the pandemic response team which DJT fired.

    • @Noe Berengena hey grammer nazi!😅😅😅 hows your narcissism? your all so predictable

    • @Gabe Dudley WE voted for Hilary, by 3 million votes more than Trump

    • @Brad Gies yes. Many souls were sold 2016. self rightiousness is a powerful tool of satan

  12. This is the third show I heard coughing in the background, things are not good.

  13. I think the world should have worried not only when he pushed his way to a photo shoot at the G-7 but when he started talking to bushes and saying he was the chosen one. I think right there was a sign that this person lives and only hears what is in that world in his mind. Any other person would have been taken away. Now USA is paying for allowing this disturb person to call the shots.

  14. The country hasn’t over prepared. The reason this is happening is we didn’t over prepare.

    • And now it is coming out that the White House was having meetings about COVID-19 in mid-January, which they classified.

  15. The biggest problem is Trump. He sabotaged our response to the virus and can’t stop lying…about the virus, the Democrats, the media, his great leadership, etc.

  16. Breaking news – Trump’s moving his Vice Poodle, Mike Pence, from Virus control to head up The Department of Forest Raking starting tomorrow. Here is a copy of his leaked speech – I’m making Jared Kushner the head of the Contras virus, seeing he’s brought peace to the Middle Yeast. My special advisor Ivanka, who’s doing an amazing job by the way and has hair as nice as mine, told me Jared is super qualified as he’s already watched the movie Contagion twice this week, including once with subtitles. He also fixed Ivanka’s dishwasher, which by the way many experts on cleaning dishes, our best people, have told me the dishwasher had a very bad virus, and like the Middle Yeast the dishwasher runs like a charm now. I’ve instructed Jared to bring in the heads of virus companies like Norton, and McAFee and many other heads to the White House to find a high tech solution to the problem.

    Many people, a lot of people, very special people, some people almost as smart and stable as me but without the great hair. These people have told me ‘April comes after March’, so we won’t have to worry about the current Contras virus in China soon. Bing, come April it’s gone . . . then comes June . . . Bing no more Contras. See I know more about this virus than the World Heath Organization. Which not very many people or a lot of people know was started by Doctor WHO from the BBC which stands for British Bacterial Care. See this is not a new virus, that’s fake news, the Contras Virus first appeared and infected many of the socialist Bernie Sandersnista in Nicaraguan, and also there was a small outbreak in the Italian or Iranian city of Marla Naples back in the Eighties.

    The great other really, really great thing about April is that I will save the American tax payers even more money because I’ll be golfing in New Jersey. Not like Obama who would spend billions of dollars golfing in his hometown of Kenya hitting golf balls into the Red Indian Sea which was not only polluting the water but was very, very disrespectful to the North American Indian.

  17. Hotels should be converted into hospitals!

    that is al good but i would’nt worried about hospitals that much of course they would do all they can to be prepare,is the people on the streets we should be worrie,there are so many unhealthy elder homeless americans right now,these people are vulnerable 100% to any disease! to the poor that have to means to help themselves,these people need all the help we can give them right now!!!

  19. Canada is now shutting its border to all but Canadian citizens.

  20. there isnt any way you can over-react to this. these are unusaual times and that requires unusual action
