  1. Anyone with a brain is surprised?

    • @Steve Dee I agree, i see most of this as having been avoidable if the republicans had not been in complete dereliction of their constitutional duty in service of him. The system was designed with too many “gentleman’s agreements” that an authoritarian brute could ignore.

    • Cases don’t mean anything most of them are young kids and most of their are going to be fine. The cause of more cases was the protesting/rioting/looting that lasted two weeks and more testing. Why don’t they look at the most important factor the death rate we had a decrease in death rate 6 straight days and the lowest death in June 22 since March 26.

    • @Rino Ponce Oh yay “decrease in death rate”, that’s how i measure success at work too……

    • Kwarkool well let’s hope he does that’s my view on the matter

    • @muuuuuud so you measure success by people dying I hope you get some help. I was making a point that they keep saying increases in cases but not mention anything about the death rate which has decreased. Let’s compare to May 6 deaths 2701 June 22 deaths 292 that more than 9 times lesser deaths.

    Test! Test & more testing of tRumps acumen, mental facilities & capabilities is needed besides him just having a syphillitic bigly brain swell.

      Rino Ponce Oh that’s sweet, the sad specimen whose country has interfered in and damaged many other countries over the decades is butthurt that I take an interest in the circus that is currently politics in the US. Wonderful!
      But what you are too stupid to understand is, the shitshow going on in your country is causing countless deaths and misery…..OF COURSE we are going to have an opinion. What , do you think we’re heartless?!? 🙄

      Rino Ponce Globalism or not, the world’s a small place, sweetie….either get used to it or carry on with your pathetic miserable life. Either way I care not in the slightest.

    Lord of Death Causes new Super spreader events every day. Get back in the Bunker,where you belong in Orange suit to match your Orange skin.

  8. brilliantly said, ty dr maddow. at least some are starting to come out of their trances. hopefully, many more will follow, and then we can save America.

    • Trump supporters will only change their mind if they at first hand experience the pain. They have no real empathy for others. Trump has to hurt many people for him to lose.

      I don’t know how everything will be by October/November, if there is no vaccine, it’s going to be bad, really bad.

    We need to develop more clearly our understanding of ‘Genocide’ as we live under Herr trump’s leadership: “Genocide is the intentional action to destroy a people—usually defined as an ethnic, national, racial, or religious group—in whole or in part.” With over 120,000 Americans dead, Herr trump’s intentional negligence, his intentional ignorance, his intentional arrogance, his intentional disinformation, and his intentional petulance are the basis for the genocide taking place in America today. This racist leader intentionally put American lives at risk with his self-congratulatory rally! Herr trump is intentionally ignoring the scientific advice and recommendations! He needs to be charged with genocide!🤬🤬🤬

  10. In two weeks all these red states will unfortunately feel like New York a few moths ago all because of lying republicans 😳😳😳😳

  11. Sad! How on Earth did so many Americans get their heads stuck so deep in the sand like this? And as much as I’d like to blame it all on Trump, that man is a symptom, the disease itself has been spreading through the Divided States for decades. The disease? Narcissism. Vanity. Entitlement. Ignorance. But it’s not too late America! You can comeback and be the great shining beacon that you once were.

      You were completely correct, right until the bit at the end. Those qualities you rhymed off, and more, they’re hard coded into the DNA of the typical American. They just can’t see when they make errors, as they always pass the blame to someone else, just look at how many are trying to blame all this on Trump, as if all the morons out there are without blame. It at best would take generations for America to wake up to its own stupidity, that, or it will collapse, right now option two seems more likely.

    Lets be honest its ONLY Trump and his cult who says testing increases cases.

    • @Peter Pan And in florida they are faking test results, putting people’s lives in danger

    • @Bobby Smith I agree, i’m just saying that saying stupid things about stupid people just creates more stupidity.

    • His cult being the government that does the testing , his cult being told to slow or stop testing especially in republican states

    • @bill You actually believe that piece of MSNBC propaganda ? O boi….
      Don’t get me wrong, as a European I have plenty to comment on when it comes to US and their dealing of Corona.
      But from what I have been able to actually see for myself and not get told by the news, that comment was made ingest, and all data I can find shows a steady increase of tests.
      Also, tests or not, people would die of Corona non the less, you can’t hide death figures and hospitalization. So this underlying accusation you are trying to make, is one that is completely irrelevant.
      Man you Americans really are literally brainwashed to follow w/e party you favor says aren’t you ?

    Now USA govt has started hiding the coronavirus case numbers because of the election

  14. BlueLightningSky | June 24, 2020 at 3:32 AM | Reply

    The solution is simple. Just close down hospitals.

  15. Trumps logic about testing for COVID-19 is like a three year old. If the child goes under the bed sheets, the child can’t see the parent, therefore the parent is not there.

  16. People went to the rally in tulsa with fevers admitted they were sick and said that they didn’t care took Tylenol to mask the fevers said they had to see Trump so 6200 people just got sick and guess who won’t care there’s truly yup trump and guess what the odds are out of 6200 of survival ….right they gave up their life for trump. Dedication or stupidity I guess they can decide

    • voter suppression another way, if they only would infect themselves, I would say let them have their rallies infect themselves and get sick and die. Sadly COVID-19 does not work that way.
