  1. To the American People….I’m Sorry

    To the American Leadership…You are all an absolute disgrace.

    • You do realize that its the American people that elect the American Leadership, right? Of course if you gonna vote for people like Mitch and Ted Cruz and Louie Gohmert your country is gonna be pretty messed up.

      On a side note, i still cant get over the fact that Louie Gohmert used to be a judge. Can you imagine being judged by that guy? Can you imagine thinking that Louie Gohmert would make a great judge and vote for him?

      Yeah, they elect judges…

    • @DAVID I am 💯 USDA Grade A American and I live in Washington d.c. I have been laughing at the weak sauce footage of the Trump tal!ban down at freedom plaza all night 🤣🤣🤣

    • @S Lordd Wuhan isn’t in America

    • @DAVID no. Wuhan is in China. Now go away, child.

    • @S Lordd I am away from you. You’re over in China.

  2. “It’s all under control”.
    – The guy who LOST the 2020 presidential election.

      @S D You learned to project for Trump well.

    • @Insignificant360 I know you hate diplomacy, after all, you voted for Biden because you hated all the peace that Trump brought to the world.
      But some of us are allergic to nuclear bombs in our backyards and like it when we all get along.

      Joe McFish fingers Biden lost. Lol


    • @Happy Vegas If you get what you want, then you will no longer have Freedom of Speech to say what you just did. Furthermore, you will not have the right to vote. When the Democrats attempted to steal the vote, they were actually stealing our right to vote. They made your vote no longer valid, no longer considered.
      Why you should want to be forced to shut up and not be heard, not even being allowed to make a valid vote is beyond me.
      Every Democrat, who loves these rights, should want every legal vote to count, and only the legal votes — and they should want everyone to have the Freedom of Speech.
      But, I guess you love slavery. This is typical of Democrats — they love slavery because they believe that they will be the Masters, not understanding that everyone will become slaves of the party.

    ” We are the wealthiest nation in the world…” No! We are the nation with SOME of the wealthiest people in the world.

    • @Generalissimo Donald Trump there are no ‘migration caravans’. People immigrate to many countries other than the US. Stop watching ‘Faux News’ and travel more…but outside of the US!

    • @Carol Rapson Carol, I know you’re being very patient with ‘Generalissimo Donald Trump’ but as far as he/she is concerned, I suggest you use the golden rule, ‘Never argue with idiots’. It’ll save your time and energy.

      @Generalissimo Donald Trump Hey GFY.

    • @geofo60 Geof Harris Yes, although I think our social safety nets in both Australia and the UK have been significantly undermined over the last 20 years.
      Interestingly the Federal government in Australia significantly increased the social security benefits when we went into lockdown. Unfortunately it is now being wound back. The awful part was a large number of non Australians, such as students and temporary visa holders, could not access the payments and suffered (and are still suffering) terribly.

    • @Generalissimo Donald Trump I don’t need to move I live in one of those countries- that’s how I know our programs are better. Where would I start with the programs to improve the living standards for the US. Hmmm let me think – oh how about introducing a national universal healthcare system that provides benefits such as free Covid testing.

      I don’t think you could understand- because clearly you don’t understand that in many countries strong communities are as important as the individual. For many countries access to good quality affordable health care for both rich and poor is a human right.

    The private sector HEALTHCARE has failed 🇺🇸

  5. You’re not the wealthiest country, you just happen to have a good tax system for wealthy people to take advantage of.

    Well it looks like the Republicans finally got those death panels they whined about so many years ago when they try to fear Monger Barack Obama’s exit from office

  7. You are not ‘the most advanced’ nation on SO many measures! When will you get over yourselves??? Get out of your own way.

  8. Randy Eckardt | January 5, 2021 at 6:09 PM | Reply

    Our health care system is not that sophisticated obviously! You can go to India or almost anywhere in Europe, and many countries in Asia for that.

  9. The PROBLEM IS: We have no National Health System…..unlike most every modern industrial state. The for-profit system won’t help us, you know…. the one that builds tall buildings in our major cities with their profits!

    Now, by force of Mitch, we finally have death panels.

  11. we dont have the best anything, we have the most PROFITABLE

    • Generalissimo Donald Trump | January 5, 2021 at 6:47 PM | Reply

      Well, we do have to subsidize the liberals across the world

    • Yes To Happiness | January 5, 2021 at 6:47 PM | Reply

      so true!

    • @Generalissimo Donald Trump because I guess there are no rich conservatives, right? Mitch McConnell represents one of the poorest states in the country. According to him he came from a humble beginning and things have changed since he got to Washington (and nothing wrong with doing better) but now he is loaded and so is his wife whose business profits from their positions in Washington. He may have made it but left behind the very people that got him there.

      Also, look at ivanka trump and husband. It is reported they made more than 8 million dollars working for free in the white house as senior advisers. How does that happen? Well one thing is for sure, you don’t have to subsidize conservatives, RIGHT?!!👍😆

  12. This is a complete failure of our healthcare system. Donald Trump is responsible

    • He helped, but the healthcare system has been failing for many years. America has simply had very good and bogus PR. It is becoming a joke of a country and many countries around the world are realizing.

    • A few facts…..33 million doses world wide so far. The countries with highest vaccine rates so far are: US, UK and Israel.

  13. This is so hard to see. We need a leader who can step up to the plate. Who has a brain and knows how to make a plan.

  14. May those who lost a loved one be comforted on today with the peace of God. Amen.

    greatest con job ever , no matter how often you repeat the we are the greatest line the reality is not true

    BTW Katie…The USA is NOT the richest nor the “most advanced…” nation in the world! CHINA IS!!!
    Why do Americans hold to these decades old beliefs they are superior? You don’t even have healthcare for every citizen FFS!!
    If it weren’t for Elon Musk you’d be failing even more than you are!
    Get over yourselves America…this ain’t the post war 1950’s🙄

  17. President elect is going to inherit a mentally and physically sick country.

    The GOP decided increasing the deficit just wasn’t enough.

    This poor doctor had to dumb down the idea of triage as much as possible. Like she was speaking to morons.

  19. Kenneth Miller | January 5, 2021 at 6:57 PM | Reply

    And trump is playing golf and crying about the election trump needs to be held accountable for this.

  20. Congress just doubled their healthcare budget for the next year.
