    • @William H Music 2020 So what are you, a Russian bot?

    • @William H Music 2020 Your support for corrupt politicians is evil. That makes you a bad person. May you always get what you deserve.

      M John, What do you call it when Cuomo Ordered elderly care facilities to take COVID-19 positive patients? Particularly when empty facilities were available for them, an accident?

      @Shelia Harvel How wonderful would it be if the next time we saw him swing a golf club on camera he threw his back out and had to stay at home and do some actual work? The image of Donald Trump on a stretcher still holding on to a 9 iron would be priceless wouldn’t it.Donald Trump, Conqueror of the Fairway!!

      @Rico Toffen What a friggin clueless hoot! Republicans have been trying to drown social security in a bath tub since the day it was passed into law by a Democratic congress and signed by a Democratic president.Republicans fought that legislation tooth and nail just like they’ve done with every social safety net program in American history.ANYONE who votes Republican because they think that party will protect social security is certifiably around the bend.

    • I hope so

    • Rico Toffen | May 26, 2020 at 4:02 PM | Reply

      @paul herring they will vote for.whoever will take care of them. No one is trying to take away social security…

    • @paul herring lay off the CNN buddy.

      Ellen Peba you right who care about the over 65’ I am laughing 😂they vote TRUMP anyway. The quick virus kills them all the better.

    • paul herring | May 26, 2020 at 2:36 PM | Reply

      @Quirk Something like 36 million Americans are now out of work on Trumps watch.I guess that means when (and if) they all return to work Trump will claim he’s just created 36 million new jobs right?

      @Ellen Peba The day a man can get pregnant and carry a child for 9 months while the woman is free to slip out the back door and fail to back up her sexual play is the day I’ll come out in opposition to abortion.You let me know when that day gets here OK.

    Some are worried? The whole fkg world is worried….He detrimental to our health and well-being. With this Traitor …Trump , we fear for our lives!

    • Absolutely, US is becoming the weakest link in the global fight against Corona .. true Brazil and Russia may have an even higher infection rate than the US, these countries don’t affect the rest of the world as much as the USA.

    • @R L Russian trolls (putin) are effecting the US elections, therefore the world.

    • I don’t fear for my life, at all…but then, I’m not a Communist, suzi. If you’re REALLY afraid, are you getting yourself ready for your own death???

    • @Godmirra you just gave me a vox link LMAO. Listen. You can play semantics all you want. Mexico is the wall and the Mexican people are paying for it no matter how you put it.

  7. Well according to Fox News voters over 65 would gladly die for the stock market so I guess Trump doesn’t need them, but I for one I need my 85-year-old father as long as I can to get him to stay here

    Why would we want to elect someone who wants to take our Social Security away from us?? WE may be old but we aren’t STUPID!!!😡

      @Bruner Chan and hasn’t Trump himself told over 20,000 lies and his republiCONS agree with him?

      @Bruner Chan and most are white. His comment was a racist remark.

    • @Chris Yeh what conspiracy? They actually pay slot of families paid by vaccines you can look that up. And they do aluminium its part of the vaccine and they have a maximum dose allowed before it can become extremely toxic to the body. When you do multiple vaccines you go over the limit. I have all my vaccines buddy im not stupid. Im careful with what goes in my body.

    • @Llewellyn Kereiff food stamps or EBT or snap or whatever you wanna call it wasn’t terminated. So what exactly are you saying?

    • Marlowe Dugger | May 26, 2020 at 10:56 PM | Reply

      @Laura Lee and he is trying to cut services to social security. Trump calls for social security cuts. Trumps proposal calls for 4.8 trillion in federal spending. Trump has called for cuts every year.

  9. Read these comments joe this is a very concerning report

    All trump had to do was test, South Korea had the same numbers we did! They tested, they now have it under control! trump says no tests and he went golfing yesterday to prove he doesn’t give a dam! But I bet he got a test!

    • @Anon ymous When it comes to trump*** EVERYTHING HE DOES is surrounded by the concept of power. EMOTION has nothing to do with that. You are blind if you don’t see that.

    • I can’t stand to look at him or hear him! He makes me sick!

    • @Rudolf russian troll

    • @Tom Rhodes Anti-Christ? You are a Communist-Democrat who supports killing the unborn, Tom. How is THAT Pro-Christ?? Trump is the most PROLIFE president, ever, since Roe passed in ’73.

    • @Scotty Rob Democrats ARE hoax-creators. Many of us are trying to get your Communist bloodlines out there for everyone to see (I’ve been trying to educate Democrats for the past 30 years). Learn your ugly history!

      The Russians are trumps good friends…doesn’t that automatically make them yours also!?
      Be nice to them, you’re going to need them in November!

    • @Chris Yeh Agreed. I think the Trump followers deep down understand this but their mission is to protect Trump at all costs, even if it makes them look programmed. I just cannot believe that Trump completely cleared their capacity for critical thinking. But perhaps he did, I read comments from a Trump follower saying Dr. Fauci lost credibility because his forecast was off. I asked about Trump’s credibility after predicting zero cases by April and we are nearing 100,000 US deaths. The Trump follower still trusted Trump and did not see his own hypocrisy.

      @Redridge07 I’m afraid you’re wasting your breath on Trumps children of the corn.According to them when a cancer patient gets treated for cancer and then recovers that means the cancer wasn’t serious at all and could just as easily have been ignored.

    • @paul herring too funny or is it too sad 🙂

    • Seth let’s see we won the senate, we won the biggest upset for President, then we won the Russian hoax, then we won the Impeachment hoax, then we won the economy and employment records, then we stopped the corona virus from becoming widespread, then we have won Supreme Court rulings against tyrannical stay at home orders, then we flipped two blue seats, then our Press Secretary started spanking fake news journalists, bout to win the economy back and then landslide second term. Any questions loser?

    • @Bob Loblaw you got 4.5 more years of big daddy Trump! I wish you luck in the upcoming November Triggering

    • @G Svenny Yeah, right! LOL…I have a bridge to sell you. Fuk’n clueless cult clowns.

    • @jlowrey68 Looking forward to stopping in here at msnbc on Nov 4th. How many of these people will be here, licking their wounds & eating humble pie? When the country opens, the economy is going to ROCKET, just like it did after Trump was elected in ’16. Can’t wait ♪

  14. “You don’t matter” is not a good way to appeal to seniors.

    • @Ken Rimmer Hope your grandmother will be fine!

    • @IWashMyOwnBrain And how many senior citizens should die so that you can go to a Donald rally?

    • @Andrew Gao Thank you! Doctors said first week is the worst so she may actually be recovering already.. 🙂

    • paul herring | May 26, 2020 at 3:06 PM | Reply

      @IWashMyOwnBrain No need to wait for a Trump rally.They’re happening in many large cities in Trump country.Many people refer to them as protesting lockdown events.But virtually everyone there is proudly wearing a MAGA hat while breathing all over each other. You should go join them as they are your fellow Trump children of the corn.Sorry your dear leader isn’t willing to lead these Trump street rallies since he can’t be seen cavorting with armed rabble rousers but at least you’ll find plenty of kindred ignorant souls to commune with.Don’t forget they have free Clorox injection booths and plenty of black lights to treat your lungs with.

      I would love to see the tide turn and him completely lose Arizona, Michigan and Florida. If that happened, then it would definitely be all over for Mr. Tangerine Man.

      Possibly Trump is hoping that there won’t be any senior citizens left alive come November.

    Trump is doomed. He is going to lose by a landslide. He’s already killing off most of his voters who are too dumb to follow public health recommendations and the rest of America is too smart to vote for him.

    • @Gregg Hernandez When the Bundestag refused to fall in line and pass everything that the Führer wanted them to, the German National Socialist party called for Hitler to be given more power. Exactly what democrats did during the Obama administration when the Republican Congress slowed Obama’s agenda. Hence all the executive orders during Obama’s regime. Ironically, even the Nazis thought that the American democrats were too racist.

      President Trump has done an excellent job. There’s nothing that democrats can point to and say exactly what he should have done different. Your post is an example of Trump Derangement Syndrome. President Trump deported a literal Nazi and you still think he’s one of them. Pathetic.

      @Quirk Hitler memorized wrong crowd and their sentiments against Jews for his Nazism (Jews were successful businessmen , were in respectable places etc). Compare that to the crowd that shows up in the armed protests and flags.
