    this is just trump being peevish with pfizer for not worshiping him enough

  2. Colin Connelly | December 18, 2020 at 2:50 AM | Reply

    This grub will keep doing everything he can to destroy the United States.

  3. Maybe if we rake our forests, Trump will let us have some more.

  4. Lazy Trump being mean spirited because he lost. Welcome to America.

  5. We have a wannbe Hitler trying to punish anyone who dose not like him just like Hitler

    • @Sri Vishnu How is choosing Joy while dying from lack of vaccine good?

    • @BJ Stewart Perhaps, one day, you’ll understand. I hope you do. You’ll be amazed beyond your most incredible dreams.

    • William Crowley | December 18, 2020 at 1:04 PM | Reply

      @Sri Vishnu I am intrigued: what is it like, having a mind that is devoid of empathy for those that are effected by a criminal con man that has spewed hate filled, and ignorant, rhetoric that is leading to the deaths of thousands of Americans? Are you just a sociopath and not able to feel for your fellow man? What is it that drives that uncaring position?

    • William Crowley | December 18, 2020 at 1:09 PM | Reply

      @Sri Vishnu interesting that you have cancer, you follow the Hindu gods, so that must mean that your karma is effecting you. Not surprising that someone that is so uncaring and indifferent of the plight of others is also diseased on the inside. Well, I guess that is evidence for karma being real 🤷‍♂️

    • @BJ Stewart Freely choose to be miserable, fearful and resentful while dying, your crossing over may then be horrific; a terrifying nightmare. I emphasize that it MIGHT be. I choose to be joyful, surrendering and at peace while dying;. the crossing is then totally blissful and sublime beyond anything one may imagine.

  6. Trump is probably going to try and sell the vaccines, that man would do anything for money.

    It´s Drumpf´s petty response for LOSING the election! the effect of, “if I didn´t win, you can all die!”.

  8. The government should now be charged with negligence and possibly treason.

  9. Not surprising at all under the current administration.

  10. Parslow Pongbert | December 18, 2020 at 3:34 AM | Reply

    When trump appointed pence, “It was Murder”.

  11. This shows how much Trump actually cared about Americans. That’s why the death toll is so high

  12. Is Kushner involved in distribution again? This sounds like his m.o. This administration is the worst excuse of competency ever! EVER!

    • @s w So they’re not shipping the vaccines as a form a payback? I’m sure that if they didn’t produce the vaccines in the contracted period they would face fines for that. Trump has been known to have a dodgy adherence to contracts. Ask the contractors who have built his properties.

    • @T.A. ACKERMAN I’m not saying it’s payback, that some assumption you made. They might not be truthful about having the vaccine available. Like I said, I’m not going to jump to judgment, I will see if more info comes out, I was merely letting you know about Pfizer…..take the info for what it is, or discard it. I trust pharmaceutical companies about as much as I trust politicians.

    • @s w I thought that was Purdue pharma?

    • @Kalt I will look again but I thought I read it was Pfizer. I could be incorrect. Thanks

    • @s w just Googled Purdue pharma is 8.3 billion.

  13. It certainly won’t go to the “swing” states.

    Rachel really looks out for the American public, calling out this pathetic and criminal government.

    • @Dee Pattison or to sell to Russia or Saudi

    • The Supreme Leader | December 18, 2020 at 3:11 PM | Reply

      @Dee Pattison I’ve felt the whole time that THIS administration is not capable of pulling off distributing this vaccine. I think it’s part of the reason Trump didn’t want Biden briefed.

    • Are we suprized that trump holds back to help the citizens of the USA 😬

    • The 'Debate Me!' Channel | December 18, 2020 at 5:51 PM | Reply

      @Dee Pattison MSM almost lost us the election. They gave us Biden when we had better candidates. Biden. A guy who almost lost. Biden one by barely 20k votes in several swing states. You probably don’t realize it, but MSM did that. Joe Biden is their corporate favorite so they convinced people it’s Biden or bust. Smeared of hid the other BETTER (for US, not them) candidates.

      The best lies are those based in truth. The MSM IS the enemy of the people, but not the way Trump means. You think Russia was messing with our elections? Russia is NOTHING compared to MSNBC & CNN. Beyond influencing, they essentially elected Joe Biden, which means in 4 years we will probably have another disgusting republican after 4 years of Biden betraying those who voted for him with 101 excuses.

      A free AND uncorrupted press is critical but what we have here in the USA are varying levels of propaganda. We are more like North Korea than people realize. I track 50+ news sources and they are all full with propaganda. The corporations are making millions, using US as characters in some sick movie that they direct for profit. The worst it is for us, the better for them. They made a KILLING in the last 4 years. BTW, CNN head guy even HELPED Trump win in 2016. Most people don’t even have ANY idea of the games being played.

  15. This is Trump saving some to sell oversea for personal profit

    • I thought the same thing.

    • No I don’t think so. Why do you want millions to die? Makes it easy for Putin to make us all Russian.
      Pfizer is not going to let trump get his grubby hands on the vaccine. They have a worldwide reputation and stakeholders, of which I am one.

    • Ontothe Nextchapter | December 18, 2020 at 3:50 PM | Reply

      right after he said on Fox news, that “the vaccines are going to Americans” … and 30% to my friends for $$

    • I don’t doubt that for a minute. If he can hide thousands of doses to sell, he’ll do it.

    • @Minda Kahn I agree. Pfizer won’t put their reputation on the line. I’m not a shareholder, but everything coming out of this administration is a lie. I’ll believe Pfizer.

  16. It’s one horror after another; America, we can’t get rid of the Trump “administration” fast enough!

    • @Lominoth Productions yes of course it’s “true”! That’s what makes good propaganda: pretend that it ISN’T propaganda. Good job.

    • Lominoth Productions | December 18, 2020 at 9:43 AM | Reply

      @Lloyd B progressive is generally a term given to democrats, republicans are often called conservatives. Reps usually try to destroy w everything and rarely conserve things

    • @Lominoth Productions Pelosi is a democrat. So is Biden. If they’re “progressive” why do they push against the #1 progressive policy: Medicare 4 All?

    • @Lloyd B It’s not that difficult to understand but since your having trouble we’ll help you out. Pfizer developed this vaccine on their own without help or financial assistance from Trumps Operation Warp Speed. Therefore Trump had nothing to do with this. He does however run the government which is currently overseeing the distribution of this vaccine and is failing miserably at that. Therefore he gets the blame for that. Not too difficult to understand I hope.

    • John's Watching | December 18, 2020 at 10:22 PM | Reply

      @Lloyd B, Burn them at the stakes? Why waste the wood?
      I’m surprised you watch a liberal pundit like Rachel Maddow! She doesn’t dress skanky, bleach her hair, or speak like a Trumpturd Republicunt. She uses words with more than 2 syllables which must drive you nuts, having to pause her broadcast while you google them.
      Trump’s success with the vaccine: Uh, uh, uh? He played NO part in its development, private industry did! And Trump didn’t secure enough to treat Americans. Indictment coming soon – Watch for it after January 20th!

  17. Glen Villanueva | December 18, 2020 at 4:15 AM | Reply

    Trump is just making sure he takes down the rest of the America with him on Jan 21.

  18. WTF is going on?
    Is this trump punishing Americans?
    This has to be intentional.

  19. She seems as though she’s almost ready to cry. Wouldn’t blame her – must be so frustrating

    Scrooge: “Decrease the surplus population.” Is this ethnic cleansing?
