  1. 500 billion that we have to pay back. And the trillions and trillions to the big corporations free of charge. That’s a smart move.

      @Bob upity Don’t both of us have something better to do than nitpick each other about “socialism” or whatever when some of our loved ones, or even we ourselves may be living our last year on this Earth?

      @CRAZY HORSE Yes, you’ll be working for years to come.

      Getting MORE loans will put the business in line for bankruptcy. So what we gunna do, it will be 5 years before all this starts to repair. Crashing the stock market is money lost on paper by riiich people who have plenty of money and no taxes paid.

      @grubalaboo creosote You are very misleading about the relief from the fed. They temporarily gave cash for bonds because people were afraid those assets were not safe. They also took other measures such as dropping interest rates to ensure banks won’t stop loaning, and they will loan money as needed. None of it is them giving money away permanently, and it’s especially not them giving it to wallstreet fat cats or corporations. Also, bailouts are paid back in time. People just ignore the facts and blame the rich and corporations since it feels great.

      @MarredCheese You are talking about the 2nd relief package. The first one went straight into the pockets of large volume traders to convince them to stop selling their shares. Don’t try and defend corruption.

  2. I literally loathe McConnell. His voice brings me to unkind thoughts

  3. Ok now send in that check!

  4. “Finally” lmao that’s a lot of of money to just decide on real fast lol

  5. If youre reading this may you live a long and happy life.

  6. Loans to small business but bailouts to profitable corporations (who didn’t save their huge permanent tax cuts for a rainy day) why aren’t they getting loans???

      @david so people are supposed to build a business just so you can can put your 2 cents in. Who made you god. You would just talk them right into bankruptcy anyways. You just keep dreaming because no one with any business sense is going to care what you think.

    • Walt Schmidt | March 19, 2020 at 9:47 AM | Reply

      Most are getting loans

    • @shaochia vang keep in mind that small business make income due to contracts they get from corporations, big business and Government. Small business employ staff less than 30, depending on their industry, so the money they make is proportional to their capacity. For example, you cant expect them to perform 50million dollar work/service, while a large corporation has the infrastructure, network and resources to execute 50 million value work. This is how economy works.

    • @Tyler Clark of course it did. Read about Reagonomics. Based on the same concept. We need to consider other strategies in growing the economy. Trickle down is a bottleneck. All the best and thanks for the fantastic lunch idea. -jk

  7. The Resident Evil 1 on Playstation music doesnt make this seem like fear mongering at all.

  8. Too late. People already went to work and infected others. Be prepared to see an explosion in numbers.

  9. Literally everything down to he music of this video seems like propaganda


    • This virus has been 1 five hundredth as dangerous as the flu so far.

    • Samantha Speaks | March 19, 2020 at 3:13 PM | Reply

      Yes its all bs to try and push martial law.. for what .. i dont want to find out!

    • @Samantha Speaks Nobody wants Marshall Law. Nobody, just knock it off. It’s getting tiresome.

    • ​@TheMoonShark squirrel Sure, but they’re not really lying, only reporting the facts that will support their scare campaign. Like they’ll tell everyone that there’s 13000 cases now, 100 time a day, but they wont report that it’s minuscule compared to other viruses we’ve encountered in the past. So it’s not a lie, they’re using selective reporting.

      They completely left out the stimulus checks American adults will be able to get in the next week or two. But whatever. About 750 per American adult

      The real powers that run the west worked with China to create this. The Chinese agreed to look like the fall guy because it helps them crack down on their people and the Hong Kong protests. As for the west it’s a distraction away from the fast collapsing economy. It’s no more deadly than the yearly flu but was engineered to have a long incubation period allowing it to spread the distracting hysteria. It’s worse than 1929. They will let the pain go on until we beg for their digital credit system waiting in the wings. I suggest investing your Weimar-bucks in precious metals, food, toiletries, tools, guns, seeds, animals, a bicycle, and anything perennially in demand.

  13. so, the good news that the Aid Bill was passed and signed, turns into a disaster according to MSNBC. Foreboding music included.

    You guys are good. Able to spin how the administration is trying to help, in such a way that it seems not helpful.

      Right?!!! Their bias is so obvious. One of his first comments said it all. “Free Coronavirus tests, if you can find it”. Smh
      These fake journalists make me sick.

    Bailout the airlines bs they got huge tax breaks let them bail themselves out, help the working class and small business owners period

    • you’ll do the same thing if you’re up there/ same thing

      enough crap

    • @Planet Express Airlines should not have been spending all their cash on buybacks the past 10 years. They can have the cash but the buybacks will stop.

    • Planet Express | March 20, 2020 at 4:54 AM | Reply

      @Tony A I don’t disagree with you there.

    • Planet Express | March 20, 2020 at 4:59 AM | Reply

      @Dat Hoang because the private sector allows for competition and innovation. A government ran airline would be a nightmare compared to what we have now.

    • I agree. Airline executives make up to $14,000,000 annually. Before the airlines get bailed out, the executives need to take a pay cut and use some of their 8 figure salaries to bail themselves out.

  16. Man MSNBC does not let up.. “free testing….. iF yOU cAn fIND It!!!”

    • Can you explain why the United states, the riches most powerful and boisterous country in the world, has a lower amount KD tests available per capita then EVERY other 1st world country dealing with this?

      Raise your standards. You’re American for Christ sake.

    • @NatarisX Check in with the FDA a problem that has been around way, way, way before Trump.

    • @NatarisX
      There are plenty tests available but they are made in Europe or Asia but Trump did not want that. He wanted American test kits so CDC developed a test kit quickly that turned out not to be reliable so they had to go back and develop a new test kit. That production is first now beginning to spin up so USA is basically behind the curb now because the cases start to increase in USA and the number you see now probably don’t give a very good picture of how many are really infected with Covid-19.
      Trump also tried to bribe a German company to move to USA to develop their vaccine for Covid-19 and only make it available for Americans. That move did not exactly make USA any friends in Germany.
      After this move, nobody trusts USA and definitely not Trump. This may come back and bite USA at a later stage.

    • TheChiefEng The tests that were coming from the W.H.O should have never of been turned away! Trump turned his head when it came to those tests because he didn’t want numbers of infected people to sky rocket and go public, how’d that go over,he made it worse.

    Stop it with the “Panic Marketing.”
    Give us FACTS and nothing more.

    This is why you all are getting a bad reputation.

      @Kunga Dorje because Trump hasn’t made big joke about this whole thing, right? he called it a hoax.

      @Shem Rafael Sasil Andong We don’t need a montage, with emotional triggering music, to understand what is happening.

      We also don’t need to hear a recap of all terrible things that could and might happen.

      That’s all.

    • JamesScottGuitar | March 19, 2020 at 11:13 AM | Reply

      @Stephanie Drake I’m pointing a bigger problem here. Trust me, I’m not looking to the White House for facts.

    • @Stephanie Drake He is doing what he can. Stop following your media overlords. China has failed and now Trump has to fix it. Look how he is proactively making an effort to stop an economic crisis and a health crisis. Democrats wouldn’t do any better.

    • @Stephanie Drake No matter where Trump stands on a position you will always disagree. The media told you everything he does is bad and you believe it.

  19. ominous music in the background, trying to spread panic are we?

      Hang in there my sister. Get you some lavender oil and put it on the inside of your wrists and on the back of your neck. The lavender on these pulse points will take your stress down a notch or two. Eat a clove of raw garlic 🧄 every day and it will supercharge your immune system against germs 🦠 etc. I take it every day! We will all get through this…..Patience is key. 👌🏻☺️
