      Not a huge fan of the Democrats but anything is better than this idiot that we have now. Anyone who is on here saying anything about fake news either you have a short attention span like the president or you haven’t been paying attention to what has been going on. Will never understand it are we even listening to the same person talk.

    • I don’t understand how this epidemic is a partisan issue to you people. Downplaying a pandemic is killing people. Stop.

    • Jim Smith I don’t think anyone’s saying he NEVER heard it was a problem and if they are they probably just being stupid to get a rise out of people. What they’re saying is he’s heard it everyday. He never stopped hearing it’s a problem and I know that because I’ve heard that its a problem everyday from professionals, not the media, and I’m not as informed as the president. He then proceeded to lie and say that he hasn’t heard about it “in weeks” when he heard it the day before, the day before that, the day before that, and so on. He just needs to stop lying then this conversation wouldn’t exist.

      @Jina Ringhofer Sure jackass..CNN VIEWERS ARE DUMB..ALMOST AS DUMB AS A FAT SLOPPY MAN THAT SAID THIS VIRUS IS UNDER CONTROL
      .AND IT WILL BE GOING AWAY IN APRIL 🤣

    • In most cases it appears that these people are unable to articulate any intelligent comments to refute what is being discussed. Therefore, they are reduced to either insulting presenters, spouting dumb slogans or, as in this case, staying silent and hitting the dislike button, That way they feel empowered.
      When they do spout nonsensical garbage, (such as Fred Burns), and are hit with facts, they stay silent and move onto the next article that they feel conflicts with their delusional support of this POS President.

    • As long as the likes vote in November, they will crawl back to their holes.

    Everyone: Mr. President we have a testing problem.

    Trump: i havnt heard of a testing problem.

    Everyone: we are litrally telling you we have a testing problem.

    Trump: yeah but i havnt heard that we have a testing problem.

    Literally trying to explain stuff to a 5 year old.

    • Robert Jones Thanks there is some hope and im sure you’ve heard by now a treatment using Hydro chloroquine with zinc has been effective and i beleive its the way it will come under control . Be safe my friend and good luck.

    • @Robert Jones Misleading? It was the ACTUAL voice of the govener of montana!!Just cause you dont like the fact that trumps lying to the american people once again doesnt mean you can just mAKE THINGS UP.

    • @James green Its more for the people who test positive so they wont spread it to other people. jreez,use your head before you go of complaing. Wait,are you a milenial? lol

    • james mack Every where ya go….

    • @Damon Coleman my fault im wrong. I thought this clip was from when they had a conference with all the governors a couple weeks ago.

    The tests, they’re great! I haven’t heard about any problem with tests, but we’re coming out with Trump brand tests, and they’re great! The best tests in the world! They’re going to be huge! Tremendous!

  6. This is quickly turning into a surreal nightmare

    • @matteo gottie what?? He was saying it was a political hoax by the Democrats you damn fool ! And not to worry it would go away by spring! Way back then! Well I hate to burst that damn bubble but that is NOT happening! Maybe if he would of taken it seriously like everyone else told him to it wouldn’t be killing thousands! And destroying businesses and families!

    Just mention the word test and he turns to jelly- what test has he ever passed??

    • He has repeatedly complained that the test was awful and it HURT & so forth. Consider that that his personal fearful experience of the test may be influencing this. Not unreasonable.

  8. The “average american” knows we don’t have enough test kits and why we started testing way too late and the President doesn’t know ?
    If that is true, we are in real trouble, Mr. President.

      Anything you “know” you know from CNN. And CNN is lying and decieving you. Now they want to shut down broadcasting from the press briefings and then _”alert you when something happens of interest.”_ QUESTION: Are you ready to lay all your knowledge about your future in the hands of CNN? Even if it affects your life?

      Average + insurance = Can’t afford the test, you have to cough in a rich persons face to get quicker results .

    • Everyone knows there is a testing problem; excepting the President. He is either stupid crazy ill informed or all of the above.

  9. Everyone should be wearing masks. It’s irresponsible for the government to tell people not to wear masks. People without symptoms are most likely to spread the disease!

    • @Grim Reefer A sick population is far less able to rise up against him.

    • Very irresponsible

    • There is no martial law against people wearing masks. And Americans often don’t like being told what to do so you should go ahead wearing them. You don’t have to rely on Trump’s recommendations.

      Kent Andrews I don’t blame the President because I’ve seen a lot of people disregarding the guidelines completely , No social distancing either I’ve observed this in two hard hit areas with multiple infections and deaths.

    • At this point, medical professionals have priority when it comes to masks.

  10. “I haven’t heard about testing being a problem” – Is the response to literally the other side of a phone call verbally stating ‘testing is a problem’.
    A fact could literally not be communicated any more directly to someone’s brain.

    • Jim Smith Of course Trump heard testing was a problem, if you paid attention, it’s literally what this whole video is about. Also, if you’ve paid attention for the last 2 months you’ll know he’s been well informed, but do you believe the response of this country has been well managed?

      COVID-19 has a mortality rate of about 2% so 98% will survive. Thanks though.

      Democrats are praying otherwise…

    • @RFI-Crypto Lab 2% of 320 million people is six million, 400 thousand people. You seem rather flippant about that. Stay well.

    • @RFI-Crypto Lab
      Thanks for correcting that. I notice that survival rates in Europe tend to range down to 96 or 95%. Any insight into why this disparity? Is it due to variation in testing levels?

    What’s extraordinary is that Trump thinks he can say “i didn’t know” “haven’t heard any testing problems in weeks” and thinks anyone in the country believes him. Now that’s extraordinary.

    Don’t even think they’re testing widespread in California. They are only testing those hospitalized in the hot spots.

    We have tested more than any Nation in the world. Damn. His lies continuously increase.

    Imagine, he could’ve spent 4-8 years just tweeting and having rallies while doing absolutely nothing. This crisis was the first real test of his presidency and exposed him for what he is, a self-serving conman and a narcissistic imbecile. I bet he can’t even keep track of all his lies now.
