  2. The irony of the ad before this video plays where members of Congress are asking us to donate $5 but today they couldn’t come up with a negotiated deal for millions to receive unemployment!
    The hypocrisy! 😡

      Congress is not the one holding the Hero bill up – its the Senate. The bill was made by Congress two months ago. The Senate wants to amend it with a “no suing clause for anything covid related until 2024” and next to no money to families, the US Post Office, election procedures, or any States. Even the school part of the funding request has been slashed and its specifically designed to allow schools to make it safer for all children to attend.

    I live in Southern California and people are going to the beach and not wearing masks…it makes me ill to see such ignorance!!!

    • California reopened! Anyone remember everyone screaming to reopen

    • Covid-19 Facts in United States:
      Confirmed Cases: .014
      Deaths: .00045
      And of those “deaths”, many people have died from cancer, heart attacks,
      car wrecks…but if those folks tested positive for the virus, it’s
      being said they died from the virus. So, the .00045 isn’t really true,
      it’s actually less that that.

      Quit listening to the Liberal media and start thinking for yourselves.

    • @ruth depew you mean Biden has no clue vote blue 😂🤡

    • By the way cointel pro bot account, what are you doing at these same EVIL locations that make you ill to see? Ever been down to skid row? That’s something that makes a person ill to see. Every been to harbor in Anaheim? Those homeless pilled up near the on ramps make one ill to see.
      Tell me how seeing well dressed, happy, clean, car owning, financial fit people, not causing a scene makes you ill? What makes a pinko commie ill is to see others not worship the tv news overlords as you pinko commies worship.

    • @Ricardo Sanchez when a nation has no leader, they don’t care?!?!!?!?! 😲😲😲🤔🤔🤔

  4. The Chinese virus soon changed to the Trump virus. It may have started in China but made a hundred times worse by the incompetent Trump.

      Pretty sure Covid entered because you wanted America to look like a UN meeting… Pretty sure no country is doing any better or were prepared for this.. pretty sure Covid exposed how unprepared all countries are for an intended bio disaster let that roll around your head a bit

    • @T. R. Campbell Sir, You are utterly deluded. withing days of the first human to human case of the virus, it shut down the country, stopping all travel at a time when there are upwards of 500 million journeys taking place.

      Calling the virus FAKE and a mild flu is nowhere near putting the people in the correct fame of mind

    • @T. R. Campbell The people did the work not trump – before the states ( not trump ) stated the distancing and lock down the people were starting to take their own precautions. While Trump PLAYED GOLF

    • T. R. Campbell | August 4, 2020 at 8:54 AM | Reply

      Dean Smith Really? I don’t think so. This all came to a head once the USA knew about the lies China was telling us about the ease the virus could transmit between animal to human and human to human. Remember, the Taiwan government asked the World Health Organization about the intelligence their agents picked up about strange virus in China very early. The WHO ignored the Taiwan government. Trump can be faulted for believing the Chinese. A core principal of a communist state is the lie.
      You also failed to watch the Congressional hearings last Friday when medical and scientific experts said Trump’s actions saved lives and the USA has done everything possible to mitigate COVID-19. This was in a congressional hearing. You are failing to trust science.
      You failed to listen to the daily briefing to Americans from the White House (not the golf course) about reducing the curve and locking down. Reducing the curve so hospitals were not overwhelmed. Nevertheless, Trump sent two hospital ships to key ‘hotspots’ had the military erect field hospitals, ramp up industry to manufacture needed medical supplies and equipment.
      I can disprove your theory that the people, not Trump, ‘did the work’. New York City was thriving and open for business as late as March 12. Open for business, and it was only when on March 14 that the Mayor and governor issues their lock down did NY close,
      On rare occasions he will play golf on weekdays. I’m sure you were upset when Obama played golf on weekdays on our dime and on weekends. He lost his lazar focus on jobs but we gave him a pass and said it was ok. Remember that?
      Clearly your hate and bitterness is clouding rational judgement. I also guess you hate Joe Biden because Joe has said the things he would have done are the same as what Trump did except he would have not stopped travel from China.

      Dean Smith Trump did not call the virus ‘fake’. Our speaker said something stupid about the virus and the economy and he called her ‘fake’. Remember, Nancy encourage California residents to visit China Town and participate in the Chinese New Year,
      Trump closed travel to and from China on 31, Jan when we became aware China with the help of the WHO lied about the ease of transmitting.
      Your hate and bitterness is clouding your rational judgement, Trust what science has said in the congressional hearings. The three doctors were under oath. They said Trumps actions have saved lives and the USA has done all it could do to mitigate the virus. Science has spoken.

    It also has to deal with people from Arizona and Nevada coming into out state and not respecting our rules!

    • KneeBenderservant | August 1, 2020 at 7:26 AM | Reply

      Your rules, lol.

    • @KneeBenderservant Yes. “lol”

      Failure trump’s total mishandling of the pandemic response means that some states and state officials are ignoring even basic measures….whereas others are implimenting them.

      So even if your area gets the spread numbers down, there is nothing to stop self-entitled folk from the next state over just popping over.

    • a1983 – Here we go, blaming others!

    • Kenny Michael Alanya | August 1, 2020 at 3:27 PM | Reply

      Californians went to Arizona and Nevada to opt out of stay at home orders

    • No one who visits Nevada follows the rules.. That’s why we visit..

  6. California is losing bigly but you never reported on it?!

  7. What you need in November is independent election observation by the UN. Otherwise Trump will betray you. Take care of yourselves.

    • e153 – Too late! Trump has already started with obstruction of the election by appointing his hand picked goon a Postmaster General. He will slow things down to a molasses crawl on the coldest day of the year. The hand writing on the wall is there people, just read it.

    We never really shut down either just small businesses shut down, that was for Trump’s rich base too

    • You can’t blame local state issues on Trump lol. I’m in a full red state and we shut down so any fault there can only be put on your corrupt local government.

    • Constituent A | August 2, 2020 at 6:36 AM | Reply

      @J True. Florida’s trumplicker governor does whatever his ‘daddy’ asks him to.

  9. California’s good weather lulls you into thinking all’s over with COVID 19. Well, it ain’t.

    TRUMP is making us paying the price for not liking him…

  11. Timothy Price | August 1, 2020 at 11:29 AM | Reply

    We refuse to listen to the experts. We listen to Trump then act surprised when more people get sick.

    • Just because Trump doesn’t wear a mask doesn’t mean you shouldn’t. Stop blaming your own bad choices on Trump.

    If California did not closed its borders to infected people coming from others states like Texas, Arizona, etc., will never have control

    • with schools going back, minimal protection …. what will become of the children – up to now they have been shielded from infection and soon to be exposed to it.

    • Perry Perrie | August 4, 2020 at 2:55 AM | Reply

      Which is important.. children’s lives or the economy he needs to boost his re-election?

  16. Laziest administration to ever set foot in THE PEOPLES HOUSE!!!

  17. You are seeing the effects because of the push on faulty testing. Shame on America.

  18. keep in mind this only known confirmed, tested cases…the real number is higher.

  19. Florida will be part of the 500-K club by the end of this week. 20% of USA cases in two states
