  1. Thanks Michael Phelps for your leadership by example with success at facing your struggles with depression! “I tried to focus on things that I could not control.” -MP

    • “There are ways through it.” -MP “We can get through these things together.” He also said that all are struggling now in this pandemic, no one is having a “grand old time.”

    • It’s a good thing he’s white.
      Olympian Jim Thorpe didn’t have the same privilege. 😡

    • CORRECTION: “I tried to focus on the things that I COULD control…”. (Wouldn’t make any sense the other way around.)

  2. Why don’t Americans have affordable healthcare, education and housing like they did in 1950s ?
    ..

  3. America is

    23 in education.
    25 in democracy index.
    34 in raising family index.
    37 in healthcare.
    No high-speed train.
    Highest number of homeless people.
    Highest number of incarcerated people.
    78% of people live paycheck to paycheck.

    Stock market is not economy of Americans! Where 90% of money belongs to top 10% of the population, it’s wallet for the rich.

    Let’s talk like adults, instead of name calling.

    I have left the proof on my playlist, if you would like to check!

    Let’s make our country better together. .. ..

    • SAD THING IS TOO MANY MONEY RICH PEOPLE THINK THEY ARE THE ONLY ONES WHO MADE THEIR MONEY THEY FORGET THAT OTHER PEOPLE HELPED THEM TO GET WHERE THEY ARE TODAY

  4. Jan 6 should not be a factor. The election is completed and decided. The only thing left is the formality for Congress to ratify the decision of the people and the “electoral college”. If anything disrupts that, it is an attempt to overthrow the government and the democratic republic of America. We will see and will have to keep a record of those who try.

  5. Michael Phelps is the most decorated Olympian, and became suicidal after he retired.

    Is this the price paid for Olympic gold medals?

    I thought the most decorated man in Olympic history would be the most SATISFIED man ever.

    Obviously, sport and winning aren’t all they’re cracked up to be.

    • It should be obvious; you thought wrong.

    • All cabs are yellow. All Chinese are yellow… therefore all Chinese are cabs…. right…? The shallowness and linearity of your reasoning are depressing…

      @Júlio Borja so this is the legacy of sport? A bunch of ruined bodies, and suicidal thoughts is the greatest champion?

      Something is wrong with that.

  6. Msnbc is a left wing TV talk show. ..there’s no anchors at all. ..every one is a talk show guy or girl😂That’s why I like you msnbc😀especially the women talk show host.

    TRUMP AND REPUBLICANS WORK FOR DICTATORSHIP COUNTRIES THAT OWN AND OPERATE COMPANIES HERE IN AMERICA AND BUY OUR REPUBLICAN POLITICIANS TO UNDERMINE OUR DEMOCRACY . WAKE UP AMERICA .

  8. I also applaud Phelps’ being an advocate for therapy and mental health awareness.
    If you break your arm, you don’t skip the doctor’s office because of “stigma.”

  9. An optimism project ? That sounds very desperate.

    palm oil is made by kids in Asia

    I wonder if Hunter got that new laptop that he wanted for Christmas 😂

  13. In the 1950s, Detroit had 3 outdoor Olympic-sized swimming pools that were open free to the public every morning and afternoon. We walked 5 miles a day to get there with a paperbag lunch. Thousands of us waited in line to get in. The swimmers and divers practicing for the Olympic Team got the use of the pools at mid-day after the authorities shooed the public out. We would sit on the grass, eat our lunch, and developed our own sense of what constituted a perfectly executed dive. We would walk the 5 miles back home, regardless of hot it was, so that we could be home in time for dinner. Compared to those early days, the isolation during this pandemic has sometimes seemed overwhelming. To maintain some sort of connection with other humans, I listen to the extraordinary talented people on the Voice or watch the “flash mobs” from a few years ago. Language is not a barrier for some things.
