Trump Administration Fails The First Test Of Covid Vaccine Distribution | Rachel Maddow | MSNBC 1

Ali Velshi points out that even as HHS Secretary Alex Azar continues to offer excuses and explanations for why the amount of coronavirus vaccine many states were expecting to be delivered was suddenly slashed, the fact that so many states raised this issue, misunderstanding or not, shows a failure by the administration to adequately communicate crucial details of a literally life or death matter. Aired on 12/19/2020.

  1. This is NOT a surprise! This administration is a complete failure.

      @Alex Courvoisier Gratz Alex, you managed to get me to read a Yahoo news LA Times retread article from April. The Federal Govt did indeed seize scarce, high demand medical supplies until they could find the bottlenecks in order to keep anyone from hoarding while assessment of actual need could be shown. No one ran out of supplies and once the supply chain was secured for each item the policy of creating a quick turn around Govt stockpile was no longer needed.
      btw, did you read the article you linked?

    • @Ash Roskell The vaccine was produced in a record time, much faster than H1N1 by Obama administration, was Obama (GUILTY) of children being MURDERED, from lack of a cure? Answer yes, he should be in prison…for life!

  2. Americans don’t need economic stimulus. They need disaster relief.

      @Real M “Pfizer received close to $2 billion for manufacturing and distribution, but unlike the other companies, it took no money for research or development.” salarshani@businessinsider.com (Sarah Al-Arshani)
      2 billion dollars for manufacturing and distribution is NOTHING?

    • @WilliamWallace
      Yes, we see your kind showing up now and then but it’s not like you get educated even a tiny bit. Once in a cult, you are deaf and blind to the real world.

      Once again, it’s NOT just every single American that sees you as Deplorable cult members but ALL of humanity. It’s NOT left or right or Dems vs Republicans. Travel to ANY country and try your red maggot hat on and see how people look at you with disgust.

      People around the world used to call your kind “ignorant American hillbilly” but now your kind is just disgusting to humanity. Your cult committed many crimes against America and humanity during these past 4 years and there will be a heavy price for you to pay.

      And remember, extreme ignorance is NOT a viable defense against charges of treason and crimes against humanity. SOON!!!

    • @WilliamWallace
      Yes, once the company ITSELF created the vaccine, the orange administration BOUGHT vaccines from them for $2 billion. It’s just like any other product the US government buys from any other company.

      Of course, you have to pay for manufacturing or the company will not manufacture anything if you are not going to buy it. And you have to pay for transport, as you do with any other product.

      It’s like saying “I paid for a pair of shoes”. The shoe company manufactured them and transported them to the place you bought them. You had NOTHING to do with creating the shoe. You pay for manufacturing and transport. Is that hard for you to grasp?

      Should we be over the moon for our government buying vaccines in a pandemic? That is their JOB. And they f**ked up that too by rejecting an early offer to buy more in advance.

    • @Real M Why do you just make stuff up from your imagination? or are you repeating MSLSD trash reporting? The contract was made in July, and $2 billion is a strong incentive to speed up the R & D. Besides you said there’s was “ZERO connection to the BS “warp speed” program” ” *In July,* President Trump’s administration ordered 100 million doses of Pfizer’s vaccine for $1.95 billion but did not pay the money upfront. The contract rested on whether the vaccine would get authorized.”
      “In comparison, *Moderna received $955 million to advance clinical trials* and another $1.5 billion to manufacture and deliver 100 million vaccine doses.
      *The operation has also funded clinical-trial research* and bought 100 million vaccine doses from three other companies: AstraZeneca, Johnson & Johnson, and Sanofi-GlaxoSmithKline. “Additionally, Warp Speed also bought 100 million doses from Novavax.”
      all of these were contracted BEFORE FDA approval.

    The whole White House needs a scrubadubub after this error of stupidity so new admin don’t get infected with there crap…

    • @Ash Roskell how is he connected to putin. I’ve heard several people say there is evidence without showing it.

    • @Dr Dennis MD although I didnt want him to win I’m glad he will follow the constitution

    • Peterpeter Peter | December 19, 2020 at 11:55 AM | Reply

      @Dudley Burleson see your mistake is thinking this is a “Trump vaccine”. it isnt, its a vaccine from a german based company, and its being distributed globally. the us actually is getting a smaller amount than they could have, because the admin messed it up. they get one smaller batch, than have to wait until other orders are done before they get a new.

    The only thing moving at Warp speed is Drumpf filling his diapers after eating six cheeseburgers.

  6. Remember when Trump promised that as soon as the vaccines were available that our military was ready to distribute it? Why are they shipping by UPS and Fedex?

    • Liam Andreassen | December 19, 2020 at 7:38 AM | Reply

      It is so easy to see why England, France, Spain and Africa either sold or just shipped their simple minded, criminals and insane to the colonies when we watch MSNBC (aka MSNBS)! England, France, Spain and Africa were right to do so!

    • @Dean Smith and the clusterfuqs name is Mike Fence Post…

    • @Nic Moreno wow after reading that article i commend Phifer and trust them sooooo much more. They knew they were dealing w an incompetent and corrupt administration and A) didnt trust them not to screw it w and B) didn’t trust that this administration would honestly deliver it to where it should go. Thx for sharing. Ill sent it out too. Really spotlights how awful of an administration we have when a company refuses to let someone else cover the shipping and delivery hassle bc they know they will screw it up.

    • Very good question ! Someone says Trump has interests in these 2 …?

    • Remember when trump said covid, covid, covid and after November 3rd you wouldn’t hear about it again. Hmm, seems like record numbers are dying daily, record numbers are infected daily, and hospitals are at capacity! trump CHOKED like a DOG! He’s a STONE COLD LYING LOSER!

    Bye bye old hhs secretary nothing to fix. New appointee coming all questions will be answered.

  8. Did anyone expect anything better from an administration that turned the white house into a COVID-19 hot zone, with Trump and most of his family becoming infected?

  9. And Trump is praising Fed and UPS for delivering. His PO AG owns stock in both.

    • @YouTube Moderator Actually, they are owned by the stockholders.

      @Michael Oddo Fed Ex and UPS are both publicly traded companies. And more misinformation or triggered hysteria you want to gush?

    • WilliamWallace | December 19, 2020 at 3:11 PM | Reply

      @Kit Otterstrom Uh, no, no one *owns* FedEx, it’s a publicly owned company,. You could own a little of it if you want to. And for each share you will get one vote towards it’s corporate governance.

  11. He is doing it to spite the states he feels wronged him in the election.

  12. This just shows the incompetence at best or obstruction at worst. – Take your pick

  13. waiting for jared kushner to come out and idiotsplain how these doses are “federal” doses, belonging to the federal government and don’t actually need to be distributed to states. that states should seek their own doses.

    • @Tsubadai Khan sorry there is nothing about him that gives off “tough”…I see spoiled little wimp

    • @yado slice Come on, Jarad could walk straight into WWE. He & his father in law have put down more people than the Undertaker!

    • Idiotsplain 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

    • And I’m waiting for Kayleigh Mac-a-Doodle to tell us it was a “One in a quadrillion SQUARED” chance that 14 different governors all somehow misunderstood their invoices.

      These people are soulless, fascist liars.

    • Jared is still trying to figure out what to do with those warehouses full of Hydrochloroquine that he stockpiled for those big bux to be made.

  14. This is ON PURPOSE.
    Trump is behind ALL THIS EVIL PETTY BEHAVIOR.

    • @Looking for Wyatte Earp exactly !!😷

    • @Alain Michel exactly ! And now they’re first in line !!!😷😡

    • @grin chi when you donated I hope you read the fine print. If each donation made doesn’t exceed several thousand dollars it doesn’t go toward legal defense or team. Anything under goes to … well I’m sure you read the fine print like I did. If those who donated can’t afford to stay a night at his hotel I just hope they know their donation wasn’t enough to actually go towards what the site claims … until they scroll all the way down to the bottom smaller print to see where it actually goes that is.

      @Bedroomkandiby_ Gigi Sky News Australia hosts were worse than Fox, still Murdoch media, they have a large US following and this should be regarded as foreign interference.

    • He’s extremely petty and vindictive, and evil.

  15. The most incompetent administration ever. Only lies cheating and distortion is what they know.

    • @Jude Chima Would you like a basic biology lesson, on how I exist? I promise I’ll use small words, as to not confuse you!

    • @Charles Cruz Would you like to enlighten me on what you consider wrong. Or, is one word all that you can muster?

      So true. No wonder Trump had to pay $2 million to New York for misusing his foundation funds!! And his foundation was shut down completely! Incredibly corrupt!

      @firestream93 hey you don’t have to wear a mask. You probably won’t get into most businesses or stores. That is your choice. Since Covid is Airborne and you can catch it more than once. I will be following the CDC guidelines. My friends daughter is 30. She is just getting over Covid 19 and she is healthy. She said she felt like she was going to die. She is still having body aches, but she is out of the woods. The CDC is putting down these guidelines and the Governors are following the CDC.

      The vaccine is two years early and 15 minutes late, is that the new scandal?

    Probably took his cut to sell to the rich people and their families who don’t qualify to get the vaccine in the first round

    For weeks and weeks Trump started every press briefing with his ubiquitous self congratulating on how incredible a job he had done and how ready they were for distribution of the vaccine. This will go out sooo fast it will make your head spin Trump said. All lies … AGAIN!

    This administration has failed at every task, on all levels, just a lot of lip service from the trump administration.

  19. The misunderstanding of the governors is their failure to realize they are dealing with liars and criminals. Funny though, they ought to know by now.

  20. Once again the Drumpf Administration has failed in administrating. “Only the best people” eh?
