Officials Begin To Roll Back Reopenings As COVID-19 Cases Explode | Rachel Maddow | MSNBC


  1. Trump: Feb 26: “The 15 (cases in the US) within a couple of days is going to be down to close to zero.”

    1. MAB : Build a CAIRN, America! One stone, for each one of Covid’s Dead. Cheap & easy to build, and just like the Ancients used to do it. Place it at Trump Tower, or in Washington? A visual aid, so America GETS IT.

    2. @Ash Roskell Excellent idea. Trump will do nothing because his sole chosen chore, since entering the WH, is to get re-elected. Huge mounds of stones just might press the matter home to the masses that America is in a swamp of Covid-19.

    3. Eliza Grogan : I genuinely believe it would help. And we may get permission, in NY? It’s a tradition that’s thousands of years old, and any waverers will take one look and SEE the enormous, growing pile of the DEAD. A sense of urgency may result. Other countries have PROVED it can be brought under control, and Donny’s undermining of the Lockdown has resulted in ALL OF THE PAIN of the Lockdown (economic downturn, unemployment, food shortages, DEATHS) with NONE OF THE PAYOFF, that every other country in the developed world managed. We need a symbol that SHOWS America, just how unacceptable this is. During wartime, the coffins and body bags are enough. We need something equal to that

  2. Trump May 8: “This is going to go away without a vaccine, it’s gonna go away, and we’re not going to see it again, hopefully, after a period of time,” Trump said at the White House. “You may have some flare-ups, and I guess I would expect that.”

    1. Also Trump “it will wash through the country”. THAT has been the GOP plan all along, allow the peons to get infected, cull the herd.

    2. That’s right! Look at all those benefits that won’t have to be paid out!! More for the top! Well, those of you with blood on your hands, you will face your maker one day and just because you don’t believe it doesn’t mean it’s not so.

  3. Trump: “I said to my people ” SLOW THE TESTING DOWN PLEASE!!!!”

    Trump said this in the midst of a viral pandemic.

    Trump in 2016: “You’re going to be so proud of your country if I get in. You’re going to be so proud of me as your president when I win.  Because we’re going to start dying again. We’re going to die so much, we’re going to die at every level. We’re going to die soooo much, that you may even get tired of dying. And you’ll say “please….please, it’s too much dying. WE CAN’T TAKE IT ANY MORE.!! Mr. President, it’s too much.”  And I’ll say “no it isn’t, we have to keep dying!!! More more more!!”

    1. Cintamani Augustine : There’s definitely a ballad in there, right? If he compiled all his hard work, from over the years, Mr J would be able to give a seriously entertaining book or two? Covfefe Table books, that people can read to each other from, after dinner, when the conversation lags over the brandy and fine cigars, as we all celebrate trump’s imprisonment

    2. @Cindy Pomerleau yea he said winning but that was a lie. Its truthful when win is replaced with die.

  4. Honestly this is much to late by governors, why did they wait so long, why do citizens think they are safe, Disney world open that’s ridiculous!

    1. @Diane Hooper So glad you didn’t have to suffer a visit from “mister insufferable”! What a few raindrops won’t do. 😉

    2. @james jones our Governor Sununu wasn’t going to be there for one reason,another was he was a little paranoid about low turnout , no one was camped out. We didn’t have rain for what would have been the time for the rally. 45 looks very ill in his videos today ,almost like he’s on the verge of a breakdown of some sort.

    3. @Diane Hooper And how unhinged would he become if networks gave Biden (our next president) as much time as tRump (our alleged president)? Yeah, he knows he’s toast. I wouldn’t delight in it so much if he wasn’t so plainly evil.

  5. The GOP is a joke every Republican cant accept responsibility for this entire mess but they want ppl 2 send their children back to school. Tell ya what send all Republican Republican members children back to school for 1 week if there are no cases then send the rest back. Lmfao without the Democrats there is no Republican Party.

    1. it’s a Democrat in Florida he’s a mayor the one that was ok with Disney World open up… so far you got one crazy Democrat,

    2. If the Republican senate went back to school they’d fail miserably and then they’d get sick, but hey, we know that won’t happen,right?

    1. Kathy Weis : So right. If they can’t draw you one way, they try another and another, and come off like ADHD 12 year olds. Or, like trump

    2. @God_Laughs _At_Atheists clearly science has passed you by if you think that is due to anything other than population density ,correlation is not proof of causality the real outliers are Florida and Louisiana . Louisiana almost equalling DoC in deat rate despite having 1/10 the population density of course other factors such as medical facilities available come into play but that’s a tragic figure for the state and it’s rising .

      Good luck and health to all on both sides of the fence.

    1. what’s incredibly sad is that voter suppression and fraud in Florida is why he’s in. As with Georgia and the US in 2016, he wasn’t the people’s choice. the GOP has a lot of blood on their hands.

    2. Wendy’s Garden : It’s also physical tampering with the voting tech (on site) in Florida. The GOP even admitted that some Russian software had been loaded into their voting computers, by someone in the same room, not remotely! They refused to give out any more info, and threatened even GOP members with jail, under anti-terror laws, if they said any more about it to the press. Two weeks later, complete radio silence, and the Donny announces that he’s adopting Florida as his new home and going to launch his campaign from there; which he did. . . Dodgiest state o the map

    1. YHou mean like… when pedophile democrats claim that men can give birth?

    2. Maybe defund NASA after watching a flat earth video on YouTube, or start a war. At the moment neither would surprise me.

    3. @Pedophile Democrats deplatform spanish imigrants It’s better to keep your mouth shut and appear stupid than open it and remove all doubt.

    4. @Pedophile Democrats deplatform spanish imigrants sounds like you have some issues around your sexuality. Maybe you want to see a therapist about that.

  6. For once glad to live in CT – yes we broke bad early due to NY proximity, but it barely touched my rural region.

  7. After hearing Floridians protest against masks, I am decidedly less sympathetic to whatever happens down there. Good luck filtering virus particles with ur lungs.

    1. trouble is, while stupid people will die, they will burden the health care system and infect some health care workers. It makes me crazy to think of stupid trumpers (redundant, sorry) killing someone who spent 20 years in getting their education. Other than the human story, that’s a GD waste!

  8. Republicans are too busy blaming democrats. I’m not a democrat but We might as well not have a Republican Party, they do far more damage than good.

    1. God_Laughs You do know that we are a country with 50 states and no borders between them We elect a president to guide all of us but our loser at the top has decided to let each state, county, city do their own thing. Which leaves no coherent plan. And he encourages his cult to do the wrong thing. He has failed us bigley.

    2. @God_Laughs _At_Atheists It’s better to keep your mouth shut and appear stupid than open it and remove all doubt.

    3. God_Laughs _At_Atheists you guys love doing the damage then shifting the blame my god calling the virus a hoax refusing to wear a mask nice try

    1. how about irresponsible? That’s another word for Trump….don’t blame his administration – blame him and remember how he handled all this in November.

    2. @Joan Meijer It is his administration as well as all the state politicians who followed 45 rather than the experts, scientists and and survivors who have permanent damage (if one can call it surviving).

  9. Why isn’t DeSantis giving press release telling us how wrong we were and how right he was any more ?
    Com-on DeSantis the time for you to shine has come.

    1. @That One Dude We so need 45 out now. Please be safe as well as you can. You are essential .Thank you.

    2. @That One Dude i’m so sorry. the capitalist death machine takes no prisoners. hope you stay safe during these difficult times

  10. Aide: “Cases are trending up in 39 states, and we have only 50 of them.”
    Thrump: “We need more states, at least 50 or 100 more.”

    1. “We only have so many states showing increased numbers because we’ve got so many states. So I said to my people, Reduce the number of states, please.”

  11. All these people boo hooing now when they could have just followed the rules from the start of this mess.
