  1. Completely crazy, “Mask Shaming” ? WTF ? Only in America.

      @Comrade Pickles Pay attention if you can afford it I said I wore a mask why is it so hard to follow a conversation . Yes my employees wear masks and gloves and a face shield or they can go home your work place is not a democracy

      Only in America!

      @Jason k well Jason, how are you so sure of what is “correct science”. . After all, the WHO said there was no human to human transmission, then the CDC said masks don’t help, and the virus is transmitted through touching contaminated surfaces, now the CDC says it’s not transmitted through surfaces, masks do help, and it’s only transmitted through human to human contact. The CDC said we need to quarantine ourselves, now, most of the disease is transmitted at home on family members. Be a little intellectually honest, will you?

    • @Richard Wright If you’re a global traveler you’ve got me, just having the northern islander ancestry. I live a lo-to-no budget lifestyle, with no baggage and not much luggage. I’ve never had a credit card, bank loan or cell phone. The federal government removed a law and the province made two news ones because of me, just to let you know. That was law, but it didn’t change things in Welland. I can play you, but then you would want to sing along.

    • Give me a break (Q) whose 75% mask study? (A) University of Hong Kong Microbiology Dept on hamsters! *NOT* peer reviewed or published in a credible journal. Now why should most folks feel a mask is a necessity, other than those who at risk, but to each their own..

  2. This guy is a Republican. Welcome to the state of the USA in 2020.

  3. The narcissism and apathy amongst Americans is beyond staggering.

      janeen harris Agreed; however, the miasma of Trumpism is more like a urine stain, and we all know how hard it is to get those out!

      The narcissism amongst Americans??? Do not you or anyone else NOT put all Americans in the same category as Trump.!! We are better than he,and you also! Stereotyping people is a form of discrimination..Be it known by this proud American and veteran of The United States Of America..T..

    How petty does someone have to be trying to mask-shame? What a sad people we are when protecting those we love is a political statement? Y’all are crazy making fun of others for caring…

    • Those people in North Dakota propably don’t know that, as of 5/22/2020, among the 50+ states and territories, their state ranked 7th in the number of weekly average new cases when normalized by population – at 104.2 per million. Or maybe they want to be #1.

      There are people shaming others for not wearing masks

  5. What an empathetic wonderful human. I appreciate his vulnerability

    • @J Hutch That makes you a simpering moron. You Trump deplorables never disappoint.

    • @tecums3h I’ve been in leadership rolls. You NEVER show weakness while leading. It shows everyone around you that they can give up and break down. You build them up. You NEVER teach them to give up.

    • @J Hutch He was NOT giving up, at all. The take from him is- use your head before you use your mouth. I’ve been in leadership rolls also. So what if he choked up a little.

    • @tecums3h Did you choke up and break down?

    • @J Hutch What do you think? Wait, hold that. I don’t care what you think. Do you respect the Governor being elected by and looking out for the citizens of NoDat? I won’t be surprised by you, that much is a given.

    He is emotional, that is really rare for a politician.

      ken rudge there is nothing grammatically incorrect, with my previous sentence. But by all means, please continue.

    • @Joanna Jedrzejczyk’s Forehead you yourself said simple black man…. Which to my comprehension recrgnised as digoritory….. Text can be ambiguous…… But can you see how something said can be mis construed and distructive? No it’s not terrible… Its all about perception

    • @Joanna Jedrzejczyk’s Forehead So why start a sentence without a capitol letter then put a commar after the word gramatically.

    • Anyway this isn’t about grammar.. Goodnight

      We can not judge that, who are we, we do not know his heart.

  8. Embrace wearing a ventilator tube like a badge of honor

  9. We used to have empathy as Americans, as people, but over the past 15 years or so that has changed to apathy.

    So you now get mocked for being cautious.

      johnny whatthefuck most people who get this virus are asymptomatic carriers. You really need to surrender to your rights and commit yourself to a facility for the intellectually disabled. People like you shouldn’t vote or have any influence at all. You have the critical thinking skills of a child. A fat ugly stupid child.

  11. I live in a Republican area. I always wear a mask. When I am asked why I am wearing one, I always say “How do you know if I am contagious? I don’t have symptoms, however I could be? I’m wearing it to protect others, and you should too”.

    • johnny whatthefuck : perhaps you should retake high school biology. Listen to the scientist. One cough can produce 2 million parts per million. It only takes 100,000 parts per million to expose someone else.

      Get on his level. “I didn’t ask you to wear one, WTF gives you the right to put me at risk, are you going to pay my medical bills, F off”

      @danish american the original post said that they live in a Republican area. Thats it. For some reason when you read this you read that they can tell who is a Republican in public. That’s not what they said. That’s what YOU said they said and you’re wrong. I live in a Republican area. You know how I know? Because we’ve been voting that way for decades.

      Valdo Franc Shin still less than half a percent infected rate in this country..! Phuck you commie for trying to mask shame!

    • @Steven Phillips did not say iyc was about the law. Was about being considerate. Not being political – was about people’s well being. Frankly to think that it is political matter is just being plain ignorant.

    • Steven Phillips | May 23, 2020 at 9:38 PM | Reply

      @H Q well who give a phuck i dont

    • @Steven Phillips clearly you do. By the comment you made about liberals. This is all political or self image where you are concerned.

  14. They should be wearing Melania’s jacket “I Don’t Care Do You?”

      As CDC recommend to put some face covering I came across a website with cheap price for N95.detailed information on my channel

    • will Robinson | May 23, 2020 at 7:15 PM | Reply

      Melania wore that jacket after the news critized her English speaking skills. Then portrayed that she wore it over concerns of illegal immigrants, which was false.

      Sherwood Creamer Careful because there are fake N95 being sold around. Always double check their suppliers

      She’s a permanent paid escort. She’ll say what she’s told to say, and go where she’s told to go. And wear. And eat. And say. He’ll probably sell her to a Saudi prince once he’s out of office.

      @R McElhaney sickening but it’s true. That mind control something else.

    Problem are people don’t care about other people in this country.

    • dirty17: It’s easy to be cynical. It’s a lot harder care. Cynics avoid responsibility or commitment. Life is easier that way. Do what’s necessary to survive and give up when things get tough. People that care get involved. They are the soldiers, doctors, firefighters and other individuals willing to take responsibility and commit. There are far far more people who care.

    • @Alisha Monique Keep reminding people. They just might come to their senses. Division makes us all weak and susceptible.👍

    • @M_Hoff The media plays a big part for sure. This is particularly true where opinionated hucksters pretend to be news reporters. Too bad most news is now twisted for either the left or right wingnuts.

    • @Fred A Your estimate may be low. If this is another bad flu season those numbers could climb into millions, wiping out entire families.

    • Lone Wolf Library | May 23, 2020 at 7:32 PM | Reply

      That’s how the world is. But when has humanity truly cared? Money, wars, poverty, egos, status, planetary destruction, hate, vanity, etc.

  16. What a country… and you have tried to convince us, the rest of the world, that you are the leading democracy… what a country.

  17. A shame we don’t have national leadership who can swallow their pride and put down their little fists.

    Trump worried about how he looks? That’s like a skunk worried about how it smells.
