      Biden is part of the problem. Look at the H1N1 results under his leadership. 60 million cases. If Joe was in charge today we are looking at more than 250k dead. He didn’t even think shutting the boarder to China was a good idea. He is on the wrong side of good judgement every time. Its sad when Bernie was an option.

    Donald Trump said doctors were falsely overstating COVID-19 deaths in order to profit. He doesn’t understand the reason for sacrifice.

  3. A psychopath willing to let his most adamant followers die for a rally; will have no qualms letting random strangers die for lack of healthcare

    • Republicans aren’t as scared of covid as you guys are.

    • @Logan McLean its almost as if people like you are overcompensating always claiming to not be scared of a virus and how tough you guys are even when its not about being scared and more about protecting your fellow neighbor

    • @juicebox
      I’ll put what’s best for myself and family before I think about others. No more shutdowns. You can’t keep doing that to people. Democrats are killing small business

    • @Logan McLean do you ever get tired of parroting idiotic propaganda?… its been 5 years i watch you parrot the trump campaign talking points word for word with zero actual reality attached to them….

      CadetBonespurs tRump is a weak man’s pathetic idea of a strongman!

  4. Bless this beautiful doctor and all who are showing compassion and risking their lives to keep all people safe.

  5. We need a White House and a Congress! We need a few million more votes. Let’s collect them today and November 3. Come and vote for the Democrats. Don’t ignore the major choices in your life.

    Wow, an awesome doctor, a great project, and an excellent interview. Inspiring to see them making it happen.

  7. May God bless the work these doctors are doing. God hears the cry of the vulnerable and needy. I praise God that our existence is not TOTALLY dependent on the powerful.

    As an oldBritish person I welcome the shutdown. Personally we have been in isolation getting groceries delivered from a supermarket . People need to get a grip on this and bite the bullet, the only way to contain this plague is to distance,test, and mask up come on you guys you can do this.

    • Some countries have it controlled. Ours is fine and we’re all back to work but testing is FREE in my country.

      I have a job where I can work from home and avoid all the danger so, easy for me to say shut it all down. If I owned a business and had a mortage and I was not able to look after my kids and their future because I was going to lose it all…you better believe I’m fighting to reopen and so would you!

      @Think about it give everyone $2000.00 a month and lock it down for 2 months. No problem.

      Honestly, we shouldn’t have to go there if theses morons could understand why they should wear a mask.

      A true Patriot asks “what can I do to help my country”. A true loser asks “what can I do to help me”.

    • @randal gibbons 100% True Fact.

    • In Canada that is what has been done.2000.00 a month..and always free health care which makes people less stressed out..We never worry about money when paying a health bill. There isn’t one.. I paid for crutches once, cause I never took them back..only time.I,m 52 had three root canals paid nothing.

  12. On Election Day,vote for BIDEN-HARRIS. Don’t trust the polls. Last chance. We need to get our country back from the madness that is tRump. Stay safe

      Trump Landslide2020. Someone find Velshi a soundproof mask. These IDIOTS have been lying to the American people for decades. Criminal. Treason.

    • Income disparity is the leading argument for radical change by liberal democrats. They blame the social structure of our hard fought Republic to account for both the very wealthy and very poor. This is erroneous. The income disparity is more of effect of the moral values within a free society. Freedom allows both extreme greed, and extreme laziness and apathy. What has exasperated these extremes are fiat money which allows the most greedy to siphon off the middle class through inflation. Inflation is a result of increasing the money supply. These problems can be directly linked to individual moral decay and lack of sound money. END THE FED and it’s private loans to our republic. END THE MOST MORALLY DECREPIT PRACTICE OF ABORTION. Restore our great Republic under God.

    • Hope the electoral college agrees with your vote.

    👏🏼Dr Ala!
    Dr Ala is exactly the type of person we need to listen to and support – caring, hardworking, and a community builder!

    • Messrs Anderson & Co | November 2, 2020 at 1:08 AM | Reply

      Yes, it’s opposite to the “me, me, me” – indulgent, self centred and entitled Americans. America could do worse than take a leaf out of this doctor’s book!

    • Diane O'Donovan | November 2, 2020 at 4:10 AM | Reply

      Hope she’s given a position in the Biden administration.


  15. a kinda inclusive America 💙Biden Harris

    • Black people , Hispanic and other minorities are beginning to see the many years of pure exploitation by the Democrat party. President Trump is enlightening and truly freeing these groups from left wing oppression. Abraham Lincoln freed the Black people from slavery and Donald Trump is liberating them from Left wing, Democrat exploitation and years of oppression.

    • God Bless America the freedom is worth fighting for indeed.

  17. It sad to see that your leader doesnt know how to treat American people well. US need changes and changes are always good. Hope you can heal America.

  18. This Doctor is a real hero. Blessed is those who give from their heart and freely.

  19. The fact that people in a “developed” wealthy country have to pay for their own test is inexcusable and unacceptable.

    • @w s Instead of defending Trumps lie you change the subject. Typical.

      @Hazel Em Hazel, you are obviously not a functioning American adult. Exposing corrupt pedophile rings is the right thing to do. Are you an enslaved victim?

    • @Hazel Em The only fool here is the blood sucking Liberal and their EVERYTHING IS FREE mentality. On someone else’s dime of course.

    • @Hazel Em I see you’re a player in the party who defends killers, rioters and looters. Is that why you haven’t commented back? Are you out on the streets right now? Looting? Rioting? Killing? Beating? Keep up the threats, it ONLY emboldens us MORE!! 🤣
      Get off the street. Buy your crayons, Prepare your safe space!! Time is Running Out for your rein of terror on American’s.

    • @Sarah Pengelly Open Up Your Borders and tell us AGAIN how Socialized healthcare works out for you. 🤦‍♀️ Fool.
