  1. Not gonna lie KungFlu is a good one

  2. So “spanish flu” isn’t racist but “China flu” is?

    • @Peace Lover First,Uyghur,Chinese ,they are all the same coz we don’t differentiate each other. second,you haven’t lived in China,only saw some videos online and you think that represents China without thinking with your own brain. Shame on YOU for making such horrible accusations. This is really a waste of time. Say whatever you want, I won’t read or reply to them. Coz there are things more worthy of my time.

    • @Zhao Guan hahahah really? You are also stupid like you government. Shame on chinese. You ignorant

      Stop eating wild animals, stop torturing innocent People.

    • Ahmad Fadzil | March 29, 2020 at 7:03 AM | Reply comes from China…very true

    • @April Vigh with 3000 deaths 8n our country how do you feel about our death numbers. Are we still better than other countries? A single death is unacceptable. Now we’re up to 3k and counting. This number will continue to rise.

    Millions of Americans fearing for their lives, and this is what MSNBC has to offer.

    • @John Yue Are you serious? If you are strong enough, how can China threaten you?

      @concernedcitizen Exactly. There job is to report the news not give us there interpretation. All these news outlets have there own agendas. When it becomes easy to tell which one leans left and which one leans right then you know something’s wrong.

    • Millions of Americans are fearing for their lives because trump mishandled the response to this virus.
      SARA, MERS, Ebola, Bird Flu never made it to America like this because he was real leadership back then.

    • @James McClynn the real point is that the trump administration bungled the virus response from the beginning. THATS why thousands of Americans have died. trump’s just trying to deflect blame for the catastrophe he caused.

    The media gets more pathetic by the day.

  5. “why are you calling it the Chinese virus?”
    “because it comes from China”

    good point

  6. ” It DID come from China and China DID cover it up… BUT” how dare him call it the china virus lolololo

    • @jdennis867 I guess natives getting European diseases or whatever symptom is by accident in past history as they didn’t know travel carried it

    • CLYDE THE TEENAGE BOY your link said the bats were not sold at the market and thus deeming the first source somewhere other than the market. It also states that bats might have infected the chickens and fish there. But how? Bats can’t fly there themselves. People had to carry it. People who ate bats came to the market to buy things and carried the corona virus, then they talked to sellers of the goods and spread the disease. Why no then? What evidence supports it as it started in market? It may have started spreading in the market but what I said was that it’s not the first place people got infected

  8. Plot twist: “Chinese” is not a Race – it’s an Ethnicity

    I guess we have to find another name for Chinese Food then…

    • Think we all know its from china. Its just that caling it that way will increase discrimination to korean vitames, chinise,japanese, thalian americans,etc.Because if ur asian ppl will htink ur from china

    • @slifer 4195 just as any other race by that logic either Caucasian, black, etc but some think others are more important to defend

    • @Alex m its different. For exampl lets say this was spanish flu. If ur white no ones assuming ur from spain. If u asian ppl think ur from china cuz most ppl think china = asia. I am korean and racism has gone rly bad for me

    • @slifer 4195 people from different nationalities got discriminated in history becuase people could pick out how people are despite being of sake race.

    • @slifer 4195 even something as simple as hair color as red heads or gingers throughout history were falsely assumed to be evil or association with the devil and were killed out of fear. Modern times have changed but discrimination and bullying have they been a target for mockery

  10. Keep saying “Chinese virus” and you can got immunity. Good luck.

  11. there are thousands of people dying.


    • Kenchiro Kenchiro why don’t you GO LOOK AT another news channel BECAUSE THIS ONE cuts out the parts where he TRYS to explain him self ! This is how fake rumors of trump being racist come out because of FAKE NEWS channels like this one

    • Have you seen chef? | March 25, 2020 at 1:18 AM | Reply

      @Luiza Mendoza the only people ive seen attack asians have been minorities, why is that?

    • David C. The news are just pathetic and liberals are still crying because trump destroyed Hilary. They just wanna do anything they can to make him look bad. Like it or not he’s president. You gotta stand by our president whether you wanted him or not. Our country shouldn’t be as divided as we are. Next time choose a better candidate to go against him. They are just making us look bad. If only our government cared more about all the people that got them elected. They are supposed to be making our lives better and doing everything they can to help us. Too bad they only care about helping themselves and fighting over the same stupid topics they have been arguing about for years. Use your power to help the lower class have a better chance to make more money to improve their lives. We are supposed to be the greatest country in the world, but we still have horrible poverty. We have a ridiculous number of homeless people and number of people who struggle to make enough to feed their family’s. Screw the main issues you people fight over and convince people are the greatest problems facing America. How about you start fixing real peoples lives right here in our country??? Oh yeah because it doesn’t help you, and spending money on the people who elected you doesn’t make money for the people who have the real power in our country. Some day soon people are going to wake up and realize the BS you are shoving in front of them to distract them from real problems you should be solving.

  17. Bruh why tf are they arguing about this. Those journalist are wasting everyone’s time.

    • @slifer 4195 What about Lymes disease, Ebola, Rocky mountain fever?

    • Because they aren’t real “journalists”. They are on a specific payroll.

    • @slifer 4195 Who exactly are the “Thalian Americans”? Can you narrow that misspelling down a bit for us? Lol

    • @DMan sry bro i am from korea. Only been in us for few months. My english isnt perfect. Am getting better tho
