WAPO: Trump Aide Calls Coronavirus Response 'Complete Chaos' | The 11th Hour | MSNBC


  1. Wait…..a virus thar has no political agenda is running wild across the globe????……. What?

  2. Georgia Governor’s response to coronavirus cases in his state: “Can I suppress their votes?”

    1. @Super Sonic Until you learn to tell the truth you will never earn the respect of your fellow Americans.

    2. @Jeff Gibson losing like 2018?
      Meanwhile, drumpffuhrer has worse stock market and less bench marks then Obama

    1. @Erroneous Monk
      Is this unstable genius the same Impeached Trumpet who thought it was a good idea to bully a 16 year old Greta Thunberg on Tweeter because she got the TIME Magazine cover he craved because Spanky had plans?
      This Traitorous Disgusting Immoral Coward surrendered to Vladimir Putin in Helsinki. Check FOX news.
      You could see Spanky was oozing FEAR from every pore. Afraid of the KGB boss he’d met privately a few minutes B4 press conference.
      Our country was not ready to deal with this Virus because Spanky, in his infinite wisdom, cut the CDC budget, closed many of their offices, and wanted to cut their Budget again.
      Surprising to see him walk upright when you realize the Virulent Cowardice Trumpet feels makes him a Spineless Worm during any 24 hour period.
      Bless his heart.

    2. @Edmond Dantes I want Greta to get a Nobel prize. Imagine the orange implosion. I’d nominate her if I was qualified, sadly I am not.

  3. Trump: “The corona virus is a hoax, nothing to be frightened of”
    Coronavirus: “Mmmm, we’ll see about that”

    1. @thewanderandhiscomp …the US Economy is ridden with Debt and can no longer afford to help anyone outside the USA. The American People need to listen to this President and stop living decadent LIFE STYLES.

    2. @B.J Cameron how can we be so in debt, per your lord and master we are doing great,
      oh wait the drumpffuhrer tax cuts, when taxes should have been raised?
      And his stupid tariffs,

    3. @B.J Cameron the only decadent life style are by rich rethuglicants and rich ministers

    4. @B.J Cameron Are you freaking kidding? Trump lives in decadence day in day out. Think before you speak, otherwise you look the fool.

    1. Well said, if your champion is a hopless notorious bs artist grifter, your opinion is worthless.

    2. Duh Da🙌
      Now You Know What Living in a Fairy Tale World 🙏🏻
      Preying With the Wizard of Oz in the White House is Like …

  4. When trump lies then his health official contradicts him, the health official is never shown on fox just the red meat trump lies for Faux and the freedom medal holder.

    1. Over half of trump voters were over 60 in 2016. That number has probably increased. This virus could do serious damage to his base.

      Especially as it becomes apparent to them the testing is going to cost them three to four thousand dollars and if they get a serious case they could be wiped out financially. The government even charged that guy they put in force quarantine $3,200 for medical care they made him accept during his quarantine.

  5. That thumbnail: Who has a solution or a plan of action for handling this epidemic?

    Mike Pence: Not me!!!

    1. Maybe if he heard from listened to specialist and read a few utube comments. Did any one ask Google’s new quantum computer? I would love to hear the answer.

    2. E Johnson … hey, watch how you talk about our Surgeon General MikePence. He’s doing the best he can with no knowledge of anything whatsoever.

    3. Mike Pence aka Trumps Surgeon General has the entire situation under complete control. Wait, what year is this again?

  6. At Trumps last rally he bragged that corona was a democrstic hoax, as the CDC was warning of a pandemic.

  7. “The accumulation of all powers, legislative, executive, and judiciary, in the same hands, whether of one, a few, or many, and whether hereditary, self appointed, or elective, may justly be pronounced the very definition of tyranny.” — 🇺🇸Founding Father & 4th President of the United States of America, James Madison.

    “Timid men prefer the calm of despotism to the tempestuous sea of Liberty.”

    ―Thomas Jefferson…If only people could remember the lessons of the past, history wouldn’t have to keep repeating itself.

    “If you can get people to believe in absurdities, then you can get them to commit atrocities.”

    — Voltaire

    “The surest way to corrupt a youth is to instruct him to hold in higher esteem those who think alike than those who think differently.―Friedrich Nietzsche

    “Above all, we should bear in mind that our liberty is not an end in itself; it is a means to win respect for human dignity for all classes of our society.” ―Admiral H.G. Rickover, Father of the US Nuclear Navy

    “Love is not affectionate feeling, but a steady wish for the loved person’s ultimate good as far as it can be obtained.”

    ―C.S. Lewis

    “Society grows great when old men plant trees whose shade they know they shall never sit in.”

    ―Anonymous Greek Proverb

    “In every deliberation, we must consider the impact on the seventh generation… even if it requires having skin as thick as the bark of a pine.”

    ―Saying derived from The Great Binding Law -Daniel Duvalle “Totalitarianism in power invariably replaces all first-rate talents, regardless of their sympathies, with those crackpots and fools whose lack of intelligence and creativity is still the best guarantee of their loyalty.” ―Hannah Arendt, The Origins of Totalitarianism

    “Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have the exact measure of the injustice and wrong which will be imposed on them.”— Frederick Douglass

    “A man’s character is most evident by how he treats those who are not in a position either to retaliate or reciprocate.” ―Paul Eldridge

    “Above all, we should bear in mind that our liberty is not an end in itself; it is a means to win respect for human dignity for all classes of our society.” ―Admiral H.G. Rickover, Father of the US Nuclear Navy

    “When a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government” ― Thomas Jefferson, Declaration of Independence

    “Sociopaths have no regard whatsoever for the social contract, but they do know how to use it to their advantage. And all in all, I am sure that if the devil existed, he would want us to feel very sorry for him.”― Martha Stout, The Sociopath Next Door”…In order for nonviolence to work, your opponent must have a conscience…” ―Kwame Ture

    Institutions alone are not enough to rein in elected autocrats. Constitutions must be defended, by political parties and organized citizens but also by democratic norms. Without robust norms, constitutional checks and balances do not serve as the bulwarks of democracy we imagine them to be. Institutions become political weapons, wielded forcefully by those who control them against those who do not. This is how elected autocrats subvert democracy – packing and “weaponizing” the courts and other neutral agencies, buying off the media and the private sector (or bullying them into silence) and rewriting the rules of politics to tilt the playing field against opponents. The tragic paradox of the electoral route to authoritarianism is that democracy’s assassins use the very institutions of democracy, gradually, subtly, and even legally, eliminate it.

    Trump’s presidency has raised a question that many of us never thought we’d be asking: Is our democracy in danger? Harvard professors Steven Levitsky and Daniel Ziblatt have spent more than twenty years studying the breakdown of democracies in Europe and Latin America, and they believe the answer is yes. Democracy no longer ends with a bang—in a revolution or military coup—but with a whimper: the slow, steady weakening of critical institutions, such as the judiciary and the press, and the gradual erosion of long-standing political norms. The good news is that there are several exit ramps on the road to authoritarianism. The bad news is that, by electing Trump, we have already passed the first one.”How Democracies Die –by Steven Levitsky and Daniel Ziblatt

  8. All the Administration’s efforts are focused on minimizing the political damage, not minimizing the impact of the virus. They don’t care about people’s health.

    1. @Esther Perez …..exaggeration can induce people to panic. The Media has used Coronavirus for this very purpose. If you are in good health the Coronavirus is a mild case if flu.

    2. @Edmond Dantes Yep, you’re right…he is a coward. He’s happy to Pay people to do the ‘dirty work’ Long as he doesn’t have to get his tiny hands dirty!

  9. This entire administration cannot handle simple issues over the last three years. Why would anyone think they can handle this?

    1. I remember serious discussion and concern that this Administration would not be able to handle a real crisis after 90 days had passed and everyone realized that they were not Staffing the positions needed to run the government. These same positions have always been staffed in under 90 days by prior Republican and Democratic Administrations.

  10. Why isn’t the U.S. Surgeon General addressing the American people??

    This position is literally designed to serve as the nation’s doctor🩺

    1. @bluecappy, it may feel that way, but according to Wikipedia…

      “Jerome Michael Adams is an American anesthesiologist and a vice admiral in the U.S. Public Health Service Commissioned Corps who currently serves as the 20th Surgeon General of the United States. Prior to becoming surgeon general, he served as the Indiana State Health Commissioner from 2014–2017. On June 29, 2017, President Donald Trump nominated Adams to become Surgeon General of the United States. Adams was confirmed by the United States Senate on August 3, 2017. He assumed office on September 5, 2017.”

      Of note…during his time serving as Indiana State Health Commissioner…Mike Pence was Governor🤔

    2. Every news on this virus is controlled by the White House, Trump has to approve or invent the information that comes out!

    3. Scott H… wait, I thought that Mike Pence was the Surgeon General. Wait, what year is this again? This current administration has me very confused.
