    But celebrities can easily get tested…

    • @slushymatis why do you watch FoxNews?

    • Exactly! An entire NBA team got tested a month ago because they have money and their lives is so much more important than the care workers who will be taking care of them should they be sick. Our priorities are so screwed up!! I am beyond disgusted by our government who continue to prioritize money over lives.

    • celebrities are batter humans

    • We are the expandables

  2. “No, we are not testing the people who have the most exposure and have the greatest contact with vulnerable populations.” Good God. 😡

    • SE Morgan flirida republican leaders have blood on their hands as well. This is going to kill a lot of them and has been known for 6 weeks that flirida age group and holidays will be a problem

    • TJ W Wow, hadn’t thought of the “ retirement colony” factor. 🙁

    • Fake news

    • @The Angry General Your right it is not always bad. For around 85% of the population the stay home sick for a 1-3 weeks and get better. For 15% of the population the get sick enough to end up in the hospital, for about 2% of the people, they die. So out of 100 people, 85 will feel mildly ti somewhat sick. 15 will go to the hospital, between 2-4 (it is a higher percentage as the hospitals become overwhelmed) of those will die. Would I bet money on those odds? Yup I would. Would I bet my life? No fucking way. Would you?

      *Sprinkling natron salts in a salad bar or burger, or using acidic water brands while avoiding sugar, causes FLU! Burning SALT with TURPENTINE spreads corona covid-19 spores. Anybody in the US outside China can create virotoxins! It is a gas bomb used in chemical warfare. The fun Covid-19 media halloween party is also a chem-war safety drill. We are entering a new era in which anybody can create toxic weapons, due to info gleaned from the internet. The UNAIDS is in advariance to many countries who adhere to military police forensic codes which don’t allow virology in penal court. Only chemistry is legal analytics by law! **** Coronavirus and HIV is cured with Malaria quinine or oral snake antidotes. Welcome to Armageddon!*

  3. I wish they start acting like this is a war…. The nurses are the soldiers on the front lines…

    I wonder how many hospitals have this policy of not testing staff… Nurses and doctors reusing the same lousy single use equipment, staff spreading it to other staff and uninfected patients who go on to get released because they enter uninfected but leave with the virus on their clothes…

    • @Diego Fonseca You are all over the place. You are now adding in people other than Trump and Pelosi and getting off point. I will say that “those “cages” were used by Democratic presidents, too. 

      Dems were holding rallies, Trump was holding rallies. No one has been dropping like flies that attended either rally. You say that I have no proof of that, yet YOU have no proof to the contrary, yet you want to push your view as fact. 

      Yes, people are spending time outdoors in my neighborhood, young and old alike. We are fine. We are following Pelosi’s lead. At last count, there are 30 hospitalized cases in my state. Healthcare workers are being asked to stay home.

      You sound angry and prone to violence. You don’t deny it, instead, you deflect by listing other people whom you have a beef with and accuse them of all sorts of things without any proof. Have they been convicted of these crimes? It sounds like you would lynch them now if you could. 

      You want Trump to have acted differently than you wanted him to. Can’t really help you with that.

      ​@M C Illegal immigration has always been addressed by EVERY administration, so can you see that TRUMP JUST LIED TO YOU about open borders? The problem isn’t illegal immigration; the problem is the separation of CHILDREN FROM THEIR PARENTS! Only Trump went there…Bush had exceptions and Obama was a HUMAN BEING. Trump is the ONLY MONSTER here. Some of those children died, and some have lost their parents FOREVER! One of the most horrible things that Trump has done was to mess with kids…

      It was never about the safety of the kids because the policy did not include measures to reunite the families that it had separated. What a fucking monster!

      At the end of this ATROCITY 5.400 kids were separated from their parents…man KIDS, you were destroying kids’ lives..Yeezus Christ… Even 1-year-old, two 2-year-old, a 3-year-old were separated and in some cases without a way to track them in order to reunite them with their parents. Please dude, even SATAN would tell you TO STOP, you don’t mess with kids…you simply don’t. …Trump created a living hell for these families & CHILDRENS, and you sadly had the NERVE to justify it. Good grief!

      Don’t make excuses that they didn’t even use…Jeff Sessions was more than clear about it: It’s a deterrent. If you justify the separation of children from their parents then you just hit rock bottom as a human being. Deplorable!

  6. America is not a country it is corporation and they are doing exactly what a corporation does.

    • Heather Larson | April 2, 2020 at 7:20 AM | Reply

      People condemn China for CPC controlling its corporates. But in America, corporates control the government.

    • Bovine One
      Wow! It’s as though you think poor people get all kinds of free assistance. You’re delusional! And wealthy people get no assistance? Haven’t you heard about the Wall Street bailouts or the massive subsidies that corporations get? The wealthy are subsidized by taxpayer dollars far more than the crumbs that poor people get. You just assume poor folks get all kinds of assistance that’s not really available. You’re the epitome of the arrogant type who looks down at people who struggle. You’re patently evil.

    • Too bad we love our country. Just stay out and you’ll be happy right? ha ha ha

    • Facts. You get it….Hope your comment reaches far and wide..Oh and registers to those who read it. I shake your hand from a far..

    • @JEN S thank you

  7. it’s Trump’s fault ofc

  8. I thought USA was the richest and most powerful country in the world, at least it is what the president and news say, but it doesn’t have enough face masks or tests to protect its citizens? Hmmm interesting

    • Reading US citizens get comment triggered when we tell them they’re not the best is so funny. 🤣 Truth hurts.

    • @Information Warfare saying the truth is not being against anyone. Someone who tells me everything is good nothing happens, you have to go to work because your boss is losing money etc and then, I see people dying on The streets. So what is it? Maybe you like lies and don’t care if people die. I do care. You can Keep supporting the lies if you want, but It is about what is right or wrong, not about politics. It is funny because everytime someone critics the government, their supporters’ argument is, ” you say that because you hate him” really? Grow up people.

    • Stop worrying about America. Just close your borders and don’t let Americans in. And please stay out of America. Thanks, the management

    Didn’t Mike Pence say we would have millions of test kits by now? Where are they?

  13. Athletes movie stars politicians get tested but not front line workers. Bullsh#t

  14. “bEtTeR bUiLd MoRe CaRriErS” 940 Billion military budget, 0 dollars sick pay ( even for health care workers)

  15. USA has the worst/broken healthcare system in the world. America = Greed Life = $$

    • 13,000 deaths in socialist Italy.
      5,000 deaths in capitalist America.

    • Justin Case an estimated 40.000 plus deaths – China

    • @Justin Case You a dumb and ignorant american! Italy is a social democracy you moron! Social democracy = capitalism with better social security and human rights! How many times a european have to explain you that?! I’m sure you never left the US for once! Every american should go for at least a week out of America and they would see the US with different eyes!

    • No… You can forget India and Pakistan.

    • @Justin Case Don’t worry. The number of deaths from COVID-19 in the USA will overtake Italy’s total within a few days and Trump can once again state that the USA is number 1.
