    Didn’t he declare a national emergency in January when he closed the borders to China over the Coronavirus?! And he was called a xenophobe, racist, etc?

    • Nicholas Ervin | March 13, 2020 at 5:26 PM | Reply

      @Ava Hisaki Because he declared a public health emergency on Jan 31st 2020.

    • Nicholas Ervin And today, he declared a national emergency. Do you even know what a national emergency is and what it means in the US? All the people here crying about MSNBC being fake news while spreading blatant fake news is hilarious. All because of ignorance.

      Not only did he not declare a National Emergency back then but he’s withheld tons of help and refused to enact it until today… even though his own advisers, the entire federal medical system, and the global health and national communities have been telling him to for weeks.

      However back in January nobody at all was saying any of this and we didn’t have any information about how dangerous and infectious it was. Outbreaks happen all the time and nobody closes stuff down, usually because it’s mild, temporary, easily cured, and blocking travel heavily damages many lives and the economy. Back then it was clearly a politically motivated move.

      @AegisEgalitarianAnarchism • trump is sick just look the way he changed his demeanor about the virus. Ted Cruz was confirmed to have it. All this while Ted was around trump.

  5. @MSNBC gettin ratio’d up in here!

  6. BSNBC hard at work.

  7. This panel is a national emergency.

  8. One of the same networks that waited until Trump said something to form their narrative. A month ago, these turds were downplaying the virus and calling travel resrictions “racist”.I
    They just want to inspire fear and hatred.

      Well, the press did a great job. I hate them even more now, than I did in 2019.

    • Grey The Odd | March 12, 2020 at 9:00 AM | Reply

      What network, this one? Buzzfeed? Sounds like you are the one trying to fit this into a narrative.

    • scotthebruce2 no one is blaming trump for the virus. They’re pointing out his ineffective response to the emergency, his lying about the numbers, his not letting experts tell the truth. The fact he got rid of the pandemic response agencies that Obama had in place.

    • dethtrk Jones | March 12, 2020 at 10:56 AM | Reply

      January 31 they aired the declaration of the state of public health emergency. Now they say he never called one. Straight lies.

    • dethtrk Jones | March 12, 2020 at 11:02 AM | Reply

      @Chloe Key do your own research. the trump admin actually expanded Obama’s pandemic response doubling it. Its actually much larger now. And dont forget that your hero Obama waited 6 months and untill there were 1000 deaths in the US from ebola before he even opened his mouth about it. So why don’t you check out of la la land and come back to reality.

  9. Yes media let’s try to freak out the people of this country even more because that’ll help

      @Opaque Rayne Yes, the stock market thinks he was crystal clear. Down another 2,000+ points today. Think Friday the 13th will be any better if he jacks he Halitosis hole again before the weekend? You might want to check the status of your “409K.” Not doing so well today thanks to Donny “Baghdad Bob” Trump.

    • @RedondoBeach2 It isn’t thanks to Trump. It’s thanks to a pandemic you moron.

    • Opaque Rayne but trump is not taking effective action to deal with the pandemic

    • RedondoBeach2 | March 13, 2020 at 12:44 PM | Reply

      @Opaque Rayne Skippy, it’s thanks to his handling of the virus. A week ago he was telling the nation that soon we would be down maybe one case in the US or perhaps none. How’s that working out? Yeah, the market is taking note of Baghdad Bobby burying his head in the sand in hopes of it going away. Meanwhile, he continued to have rallies while all of professional sports is shuttering the doors. Really smart.

    • Grey The Odd | March 14, 2020 at 1:59 AM | Reply

      Considering the lack of care or interest, and how people are refusing to take this seriously and prepare… yes. Sometimes it’s better to scare people if the alternative is letting them walk off a cliff and die.

      The virus can stay hidden or remain on surfaces for upwards of a week. People need to realize they are quite possibly already infected and spreading it. People need to cancel big events or thousands could be infected overnight.

      We don’t have the resources to treat even hundreds of thousands and MILLIONS are going to get it… we need to slow down the spread as much as possible.


  11. I understand being careful, but the media needs everyone to get extra excited to boost their ratings. Take everything they say with a grain of salt.

    Loving that like to dislike ratio. For such an intelligent group of people (😂😂😂) you would think they would know when to give it up. 🤷‍♂️ Not so smart after all…smh.

    • The dumbest thing I see is you and other “geniuses” know for a fact this “fake news” and propaganda, yet you’re still here. And why? To troll? Not so smart yourself.

    • @Brian What kind of logic is this? Someone clicks a video, sees that its clickbait/fake news, then comments. Maybe you liberal nutjobs should take your own advice. Dont like what someone is saying? Dont listen to it. Oh wait, you prefer to physically assault them or try and assassinate their character. Ironic.

    • @Brian the coronavirus is trending most of us can’t even log on YouTube without these videos being recommend to us of course where gonna click when its being shoved down our mouths every time we log on your point is invalid just because of that alone if anything this shows how very little people believe the media now vs anything else

      @Leeonardo di Enfield they never respond when you give them proof of their own ignorance. They can argue with news reports but not with federal guidelines and government documentation. People like that rely on the fact that most others don’t do their own research. He should have known when I posted links to the conflicting news article by nbc that I was not one of those people. 😂

      @Leeonardo di Enfield Don’t assume and put people to your and Jones standards. People like him rely on the fact that most others don’t do their own research.

      @UC4TI3DdVa8MM-Tx8yfM2EqQ I didn’t link you to “articles” your deception starts there. I linked you to the US department of health and human services and to Congressional service reports on general national security topics. Actual government websites. So I suggest you quit looking at articles (which implies news) and go to the sources. Thats what I did.

    • dethtrk Jones | March 14, 2020 at 2:15 AM | Reply

      @Leeonardo di Enfield I didn’t send him articles. I sent him to government websites. The fact that he called them articles tells me that he doesn’t even know where the links go. When I tried to call him on that.. Well you can see the result in the thread. Best thing you could do for yourself thow is read them for yourself and not listen to me or anyone else. That’s what I do. People in general are either misinformed or uninformed. I’m just trying to get the links out there and easily accessible for others. Its not about gotcha moments its about spreading access to unfiltered facts.

  19. Worthless clickbait to drive views, don’t humor the MSM

      I love it when you win an argument against republicans, it just gets all quiet and the atmosphere is suddenly palpable with bitterness

  20. Remember when it took Obama 6 months to declare a national emergency over H1N1 after hundreds of Americans had already died?

    Never heard the leftists complain about that.

    • I remember, 61 million Americans were infected & 12,467 died because of Obeezy’s slow reaction time.

    • Beginning in March of 2009 59 million Americans contracted the H1N1 virus, 265,000 were hospitalized as a result, and 12,000 died. President Barack Obama didn’t declare Swine Flu a national emergency until October 24, 2009, 8 months after it began and 22 million Americans had been infected with H1N1 and 4,000 Americans had died.

    • Grey The Odd | March 12, 2020 at 9:17 AM | Reply

      That’s because you don’t listen to leftists apparently. Though not many people wound up dying over that in comparison to the amount of people the Corona Virus has ALREADY killed. Entire nations have shut down literally their entire economy and industries except super markets and pharmacies, and they are only days ahead of us in severity. Just food and medicine. Process that. Trump has STILL not declared a national emergency, just made a statement calling it a health emergency and did nothing about it. Obama however did implement a policy and series of protocols to deal with pandemics but Trump removed all that… I wonder why.

    • Zachariah Gray | March 12, 2020 at 9:39 AM | Reply

      Grey The Odd He declared I an emergency in January. What are you talking about? And it’s not about “declaring” something, it’s about action. He restricted China and now European travel and has put 50b dollars into fighting it. It’ll never be enough. Liberals want this virus. They want the economy to tank. They want people dead and they want to blame it all on trump when the Chinese did this. You are mental.

    • @Grey The Odd
      When the President halted travel from China, Chuck Shumer & the leftists gang called it xenophobic. Bernie said on Monday at his town hall that he wouldn’t close the American borders if he were the President. That’s inactivity…
