  1. Trump: “So in the midst of a global pandemic, I told my people to slow the testing down please!!!”

    1. @Rino Ponce, As part of our ongoing efforts to monitor the comments on this platform, we always confirm the validity of statements of facts in the associated videos by cross checking with at least three other sources. While all reputable news agencies have to issue retractions, there are very rarely any problems with the presented facts in CNN coverage.

  2. Donald and Melania Trump received Covid vaccine at the White House in January in secret so his supporters wouldn’t find out he took it.

    1. @Wendy Johansen In my actual life I’ve known of 7 suicides of friends loved this last year, more than my whole life combined, I don’t care what your computer data says. It’s a problem.
      Being coerced and shamed for not taking a vaccine is getting close to fascism, beside making no sense health wise. Why would anyone with an ounce of intelligence think an experimental vaccine for a virus with over 99.5% survival rate for most ppl is necessary? It’s pure hysteria.

    2. Raven R I fully agree with everything that you’ve stated about the jab. And you can hate me for saying this- “I hope every single demonrat takes the vaccine.” I will say nothing to discourage them from it after what they have done.

    1. 1 year ago CNN experts said “warp speed development of vaccines was impossible” and slammed Trump for baseless unscientific announcement of vaccines….

      9 months later , “impossible became possible” and those nasty hypocrites bully cut in line of frontline workers and elders to get vaccinated

      Now, praising operation warp speed vaccines and thank to Trump

      It is kinda fake and slanderous narratives of media mobs which millions CNN viewers love to be brainwashed

    2. @Luan Nguyen Trump said the vaccine would be ready by October-November 2020. It wasn’t.

      Also, it’s not necessarily a good idea to get people’s hopes up and embolden them to make reckless decisions that could get them sick, and what Trump promised WAS actually unlikely. I believe he says in this video that he’s glad operation warp speed worked out for the most part, but facts don’t exist in a vacuum.

      Also I don’t know about cutting in line for the vaccine. They’re all of similar priority, and it kinda depends on when you sign up for it. I’m sure if I take the vaccine tomorrow, there will still be thousands of elders taking it after me.

    3. @Henry He my point was Desantis did not put people infected with covid into nursing homes murdering thousands, did he? This has nothing to do with political affiliation. Facts are that mistakes were made by many, to include, CDC, Fauci, WHO, dems, republicans and Trump! Each state handled things according to CDC snd fauci in the beginning. If creepy cuomo and lying desantis are held to account, then good! Odds are they will get away with it if the past is any indication

    4. @Henry He stupidest dude on this world, go and do own search where Pfizer announced 95% effective and was approved for usage

  3. Trump speaking about Fauchi in a phone call to Fox last week: “Everything he told me, I did the opposite”

  4. “I take responsibility for nothing.”
    “Give me credit!”
    What’s wrong with that picture?

    2. @Facts First Virus? What virus? The one he had completely under control? The one that would magically disappear by last Easter? The one he pushed completely ineffective Lupus drugs to fight? The one he decided he knew more about than the CDC and the NIH? The virus his packed, maskless rallies spread far and wide? The virus he said was no worse than the flu? That virus?

    3. @Facts First Democrats should never give Trump credit for the vaccines because the vaccines were produced by private companies without govt funding. The private sector stepped up when Trump’s government was collapsing. Any man with a fraction of brain would eliminate the Red Tape so these companies can work as quick and efficiently as they possibly can to produce a vaccine. Trump spent most of his administration down playing the virus and it’s severity. He spent countless days on the golf course and the rest of his time tweeting. When he did speak his intelligence was on full display. A virus that has the mortality rate of the flu doesn’t need a vaccine according to Trump so why is he crying now and trying to take credit for something he never believed in. Trump is a fraud and will always be con man. It’s his fault so many Americans died. It’s called derieliction of duty. Trump is by far the worst president in American history.

    4. @Luan Nguyen first vaccine i heard about was developed by a turkish couple living in germany and using german money.
      you’re giving credit to trump for foreigners’ accomplishments on the other side of the atlantic?
      bit of a reach, ain’t it?

    5. @Jesse Bianchi Do you understand what is called operation warp speed by which vaccines was developed? Stupid dude cnn brainwashed?

  5. When Trump still allowed to go to Dr. Fauci to be on stage and after Dr. Fauci did his speaking Trump went up there and basically turned it totally around and Dr. Fauci actually covered his face with his hand at what Trump said

    1. Fauci is a trader he is so invested in China. He is in there pocket. Where do you think he got his money. So is Biden and the rest if the dems. They all have investments there.

  6. Me and wife got ours today. Thank you pharmacist and health care workers who sacrificed their Easter for us to get the shot!!!

    1. Today we vaccinated someone every 15 minutes at the pharmacy I work at. It’s insane how busy we are between filling over 1000 prescriptions a day, covid testing, covid vaccinations, etc. with only a max of 3 people working at once.

    2. I got my shot and, soon as I stood up, the room was blurry and my vision fuzzy. I couldnt see the walls, the nurses, the floors. I was bumping into the door on the way out when the nurse said: “Sir, you forgot your glasses.”

    1. Yep-it’s the same way with me/my fam. But God availed and granted joy this Resurrection holiday. So things ain’t suck that much.

    2. @Hankakah There should be a class action suit against him by those 450,000 families that may not have had to suffer such losses.

    3. @Jaqueline Goodspeed Fair point, but maybe now is not the time to raise this while someone is in the early stages of grief. They need the depth of their pain and loss acknowledged right now. Hence a public comment. You have had almost a lifetime of loss without your mother. You have had time to think philosophically about it. Death is something you grew up with. I can relate. Our loss seems more because we didn’t even have enough time to know what we were missing. Both person, and the role of a parent, were lost. We have grown up with the death mixed with life. We have had more time to process these things. This awareness, and this extra time (for our culture) is the gift that is born of our loss.

    4. Dear Jill Hoffman ~ I Am Very Sorry Of The Terrible Loss You Have Suffered. Your Big Brother Deserved To Live!!!

    1. What’s “insane”, and the “propaganda”, is how the media, ( and, virtually everyone else ), keeps presenting the vaccines as “desirable commodities”. Things to be coveted…. WRONG, and very misleading. Overtly dishonest. Many people don’t want the vaccines, ( for a variety of reasons ). How often are those facts discussed? When they do talk about it, they usually focus on minorities, ( Blacks most often ), and highlight that group’s entitled mistrust of the government. Oh, but Blacks are not the only ones. Not by a long shot, ( pardon the pun ).

    2. @Russell Barbee
      Why are you freaking out, no one is saying it’s mandatory. Don’t know about you, people with common sense don’t rely CNN, Fox or any MSM news source for health decisions. All the information on every vaccine is available for all to access free of media anything. If you’re going to try & make up a story that minorites are being ‘targeted’, familiarize with the states that have Republican Governors that have been caught giving vaccines to people that weren’t even qualified that are fluent & usually White. I’m Florida when they’re were complaints if the vaccine being unavailable in communities of color and lower economic communities, DeSantis threatened to take their vaccine sites away. His full meltdown is on video. I understand being concerned & even waiting if you’re willing to take other precautions until the World attains herd immunity. In the meantime the virus will mutate further, vaccines may not work as well or need additional booster. Try to remember other coronaviruses have been being studied for decades. It’s how they come up with seasonal flu shots which the majority of people have no issue with. these companies didn’t have to come up with a brand new from scratch vaccine they had bases to work off of. Hope that eases your mind a bit. If not the information is available at your fingertips to answer every question you have.

  7. Fmr DC District Atty, Glenn Kirshner, has sent letters to every AG in EVERY STATE requesting a criminal investigation into these very FACTS! Get involved and keep updated at Glenn’s daily YouTube programs. P.S. They are VERY well done.

    1. @Richard Blumenidiot I am really curious what saying something like that accomplishes. Please let me in on the goal.

    2. @Chris Brantner He has no goal. Just throwing lies out there hoping they’ll stick to something. Another whataboutism.

    3. Remember, CDC Task Force issued guidances, updates to all 50 States Governor, Mayors m Healthcare Professionals, etc….to take care of their citizens in their communities….

  8. What strikes as kinda funny even though the virus is serious is the fact that an anti-masker will intentionally cough in your face and still be allowed to walk away with all of their teeth.

    2. @Luan Nguyen Ironically, the speed at which they developed the swine flu was faster in 2009.

      https://www.cdc.gov/flu/pandemic-resources/2009-pandemic-timeline.html

      First case detected on April 15th, and Oct5th of the same year, the first doses were given in the US.

      I don’t recall Obama say give me credit. Without me this wouldn’t have happened.

      Nope. He wasn’t in it for selfish reasons and the people came first. A true american leader!

      It’s amazing how many repubs have memory loss.

    3. @dq machine Not everyone on the block is going to catch the virus dumbazz. Maybe less time in liberal arts classes and more time in a statistics class and you’d get the concept….

    4. There’s a commenter above who’s lost an aunt, and that aunt’s son-in-law used to cough in her face for a laugh. Then he lost his life to covid. Sad, but genuinely disturbing

  9. “Im sorry your family member died”

    “You called it a hoax and said we need to open back up before the vaccine”

    1. @Tanner Wow, you are so right. The response to BLM isn’t “All lives matter”, but instead, “Only my life matters.” Or “only the afterlife matters.”

    1. @Richard Blumenidiot This is the best you can do Richard? You think that blind accusation negates or justifies anything? It’s about time you start showing some backbone and deal with your problems like a big boy!

  10. I feel very fortunate to be in Australia with federal and state governments that care about the health of their citizens (as well as mostly responsible citizens). Most days now have no community transmissions.

    1. Me too, I knew we were in a good place,but this last year made me very grateful and saddened for the USA, I appreciate our politicians too, I’m so sorry for all your losses

  11. So sad that this poor excuse of a man was elected to this high office and has left irrevocable damage to our Country. Those Lives, those American Lives–precious, and can never be replaced. We are at a loss for those Lives not being able to be here, and Bless us with their presence. . Pray for our Country, and VOTE for people who actually care about people, not just themselves.
