  1. People need to wake up cause Trump don't care about your lives….he wants us to get sick so we can't work….he's the antichrist….look at the people who lick his shoes? Republicans!!! The people who lost love ones ,Republicans better hope they ain't Republicans cause you know they will go against trump and look at him crazy….they will finally see what we see "evil "

  2. What is your definition of "EQUALITY under the law"?
    This is when and where the obvious becomes impossible to continue to gaslight Democracy to all.

    Most people see this pandemic as a threat to mankind as a whole while "others" CHOOSE to use it as an OPPORTUNITY to assert their personal agenda in a pursuit of POWER and CONTROL – to "thin out" the herd by removing the unworthy.
    What is the value of a human being?

    Also: OK so Trump and his "people" keep saying to focus on their "winning" by having performed the "most testing in the world" but they are counting EVERY TEST and MOST HAVE BEEN FALSE POSITIVE AND PROVEN TO BE UNUSABLE FOR CORONA VIRUS. Until every country ACCURATELY tests every citizen, they DO NOT KNOW WHAT THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT which is why "things" keep changing. Looks good on paper and they are already "padding the file" with their "version" of the "truth". Who really knows WHAT for sure anymore and everything is possible, right?
    Apparently not COMMON SENSE or even BLIND FAITH…all things being "equal".

    (Thank you)
    Hope all ios well with you and yours. Be well
    We are our brother's keeper. Pay It Forward
    May peace be with you and yours always.

  3. Fk Thrump-uto…..for reals …my dad is hospital with virus they kick him out for what for him to come back again…… This time he's not coming out until we know he's good ….. … I HATE THIS FAKE PRESIDENT……

  4. If you are a low income person and you can`t afford to get the vaccine, then they will end up going to the hospital and unable to pay for the services. I think the hospital would end up closing.

  5. It's a tradeoff between sustaining one's livelihood and risking infection & death to oneself & those in contact with one

  6. I thought, from the thumbnail, that Dr. Fauci was referring to the moral stakes the President faces. But he takes no responsibility whatsoever. Does that let him off the hook — again?

  7. Easy for him to say he is in his mansion.people want to get back to work no money no food no apartment .just be smart wear a mask keep 6ft apart and stop listening to this station. SCIENTISTS DON'T KNOW EVERYTHING JUST LIKE WEATHERMAN CANNOT FORCAST THE WEATHER.

  8. I called my ex coworkers in South Dakota. They never shut down and their hospitals are very slow still. This was a PLANdemic

  9. Read my lips and read all the bills the democratic party has put out "NO BILL HAS ANY LEGISLATION TO HELP THE PEOPLE EXCEPT FOR TRUMP'S $1200." prove me wrong.

  10. Hassle here hassle there.IIn malaysia the control is balanced. 6 weeks on partial lockdown
    Now under phased opening of the economy. Sops is strictly enforced. So total cases 6776. Recovered 75 %. Only 1200+ in hospital including 20 in icu. Death 112. The whole country designated yellow green and red. All clusters in each zone under total lockdown. Testing to all inside the cluster. Contact tracing is militarily applied. Quarantine in designated places. And the best thing here testing hospitalisation medcine and food for the hospitalised and quarantine are all FOC

  11. President Dump is a ugly psychopathic crook with no heart and is a well known racist! Why is one of his henchmen,Paul Manafort released from prison because of Covid19? Why are others prisoners being released to home?

  12. So blacks, immigrants and women knit this country together? Oh yeah, screw those white men, am I right? Jesus……

  13. What??? Yes we know that we all have to work this means we know the risk.oh however politicians don't work and still get paid.

  14. Nine tenths of the population which is over 298 million don't have it because of prevention and approximately one tenth survive due to a strong immune system.

  15. what do Fauci know about health, he never talks about how to build up a good immune system, only the health practitioners, what does he know of natural foods he says nothing about good health.

  16. Dr. Fauci must involve himself in educating people on measures to prevent severe viral illness. This includes what Ms. Heather mentioned plus those Americans who do get ill with fever must take vitamins and minerals (Capsule Zevit) and oral rehydration solution. Ms. Heather should not bring in racial issues. And, yes, employers must provide protection for their workers. Thank you.

  17. Are those journalists working or volunteering??? I am confused! Why is that you’re not helping the president get the country back to work??? Something is fishy.

  18. I am on board with the Dr. When children begin to die, that is heartbreaking. Does anyone see that? When the educational staff report to work asymptomatic, but are carrying the virus to the children and the children die or take it home to everyone else and they die and so on and so forth
    " this is criminal ", I hope these
    A- holes can sleep at night. These
    infected children are " foot soldiers to the pandemic. No different than China allowing international travel.

  19. FACTS: Until 2014, Fauci's NIAID experimented in NCarolina on bat coronaviruses; altering them to infect humans. When 200 scientists signed a letter expressing great concern about the risks involved, Obama had the NIH shut the program down. Fauci then moved the whole operation to a lab in WUHAN, CHINA. YOU do the math. https://www.newsweek.com/dr-fauci-backed-controversial-wuhan-lab-millions-us-dollars-risky-coronavirus-research-1500741

  20. This will ALL become an absolute chaos this coming November moving forward people. The weather will become colder again and that is what COVID responds to. 😩😢😰

  21. With all that said about construction workers….
    I'm kind of tired about hearing how cities are going to give healthcare worker bonuses, hazardous pay, vacations Etc. When We the construction workers are out there risking not only our heath but our families lives as well.
    Other than just dealing with the virus, we are risking our lives by dealing with many other hazards, like falling to our deaths, being crushed by equipment, or being electrocuted….. How will we be compensated!!??

  22. Trump has been a sissy when it comes to his own health but he never cared for this workers or today for the citizens in the US. He is unable to relate to pain or risk of others. He rather enjoys it. People in the republican party knew this and ignored it for personal profits.

  23. You are a reporter, I thought you are suppose to be objective, but you slant the news in a "political bent"
    Trump knows the numbers are false. This is the vaccination "PUSH" and, incidentally I am African American.
    Your words are the words of a network of Individuals who have an agenda. Why isn't Dr. Fauci promoting to the public how to strengthen your own immune system. We cant live the rest of our lives behind closed doors. If you suggest a national VACCINATION MANDATE you will be in for the fight of your life. Do you think Americans trust what is being sent by a regime, that has pushed daily propaganda?

  24. Disinfectant Donald Trump is playing a skillful game. Trump wants all the states to open up, so his numbers improve for November. On the other hand, Trump says that opening up is all up to the Governors.
    When it comes to taking personal responsibility, Trump has no shame.
    Had Trump stopped people from bringing the coronavirus into this country, we would not be here now.
    Had Trump ramped our country up to handle the virus, we would not be here now.
    Had Trump gotten on top of the coronavirus in January, our economy would not be in the dumpster.
    This is ALL on Donald Trump.
    Now Trump’s delusional 40 percent will vote for his re-election in November.
    The question is, will the other 60 percent of this country get out and vote against him.

  25. Right on target. Low income, working people, under payed underemployed are the one whom go back to work. Therefore, we are the one who will be sick and possible die. The people who own those big business are the one who make money and give orders from their homes.

  26. OK.. You have children in cages, dying from Covid-19. You have poverty in the streets who congregate in homes. You have prisons and hospitals handling death upon death. You have people in this country who have lost their jobs, and have no money. And you have a President who was a CRIMINAL before he was elected, who is encouraging people to die for him by going back to work. It's a lack of love, and inequality that is killing us along with a virus.

  27. It’s crazy that after working for five administrations both Republicans and Democrats, your now deemed incompetent and partial. Dr.Fauci continue speaking your truth

  28. Fouchi knows because he helped invent it was paid millions by dems works with gates we have to be smart now

  29. Our nation needs to shutdown or will printing more money from WH. We have to look back from the beginning of covid19 compare to the death toll now.

  30. Hey! Why aren't you reporting FAUCIs DARK PAST! The biochemist he destroyed, covered up! Cannot trust this man! Don't use him for ur agenda! He's crooked, & wants fame.

  31. Who is believing this man ?Why is so many people believing that him and the msm ,this station among others are telling them the truth ?why do so many people want to believe proven liars rather than find the truth themselves.Would you rather the country once again be run by satanist crooked and pedophile people who sold you out and they pocketd the money and left you with no jobs and if you bought anything it was from china and cheap quality.at that but it was getting to the point you couldn't even afford that .Its all facts and out there for all to see.Just have to wanna know .

  32. Coumo the NY governor said that 66% of new admissions were from people who had largely been sheltering at home. Please people it is time to wake up! This 66% of people you think have Caronavirus in their home? No, it was injected Influenza vaccine to million of people around the world as Dr. Judy Mikobitis said. She said if you got shot for influenza most likely you will activated the virus if you are stressed out, and lack of vitamins D and C. Please said no Vaccine to your love ones and the world just be fine without it!

  33. Eat the rich. We now see how much American greed impacts the lives of millions. The only good thing about this virus is it has lifted the curtain over our eyes and now the unspoken truth about the inequities is shouted on rooftops.

  34. You people are disgusting. You are NOT news. This is like watching TYT. Please go away. MSNBC is just gross.

  35. Dr. Fauci can take his opinions and stick them up his…….. You sheep on MSDNC may be hanging on the pearls falling from this asshat's mouth. The smart people are ignoring him.

  36. https://www.statista.com/statistics/1103688/coronavirus-covid19-deaths-us-by-state/ check your state daily

  37. If a person doesn't care about women and any race then how can care about US citizen. This is impractical

  38. I agree with Dr.Fauci! 👍 you can see it’s approved of the coronavirus in Asian area and China. They are all did great jobs! Especially China. The U.S. business in China it’s reopened for a while. like Starbucks … Apple Store and Tesla , and Disney in Shanghai and KFC . They’re all opening up now.

  39. Trump is not a doctor n has no EMPATHY for none of us. They have done nothing good enough to keep ur live or ur families lives safe. 8 weeks n our spoiled, selfish, nation of ppl not all, but one is too many to act like they needed us reopen. My mind is blown over it. They made commercials, shut down the entire world, almost, would not let ppl dock on cruise ships, sent in troops, build multiple hospitals in days, etc. n u think that we are ready to reopen? This is insane, we take drastic, but safe measures to do nothing after 8 weeks, to reopen n act like this NVR happend?! Like the 80,000 ppl did not die? or kids are now being infected?!. It's madness not safe n with the heat, the lines, n natural disasters getting ready too with hurricane season, we open in a middle of a pandemic?!. Trump needs to Trump this virus act like a president, cus this is going to backfire n wat I fear the most is, going too be the end of humanity. It was all talk the world ending, All the time n now I have a feeling we are on the track to wipe us out over ignorance n selfishness. China may have did this trump, but its how u handled it that matters, cus everyone's life matters! God bless. One death was too many. Speaking my true feelings, cus I am scared out of my mind n winning a political game, over winning ur ppl over, has mattered more to Trump then humanity!

  40. Fauci and Bill Gates are scam. I do not know Fauci and I do not understand what he said. Bill can try on his own familys wife and daughter then it's working Ok then he can tell all the poeples get a shot. It will be nice.

  41. Anyone associated with Trump's administration is in danger.
    A smart person will have nothing to do with him, his gang of criminals or his crazed Cult.

  42. Coffee take a drink, prevention is the cure at this time, we are lucky flu season is over, so the numbers are down, but rest and sure the CDC better be ready this late fall when flu season returns.

  43. Just like putting out a fire, and letting people in that space without completely setting a reflash watch to keep the fire contained. The death toll will continue, til more testing and vaccinations made available. Or when this admin even takes the death toll from the virus just as dire and as serious as life and death;

  44. To Coffee and All, you do realize that if we were prepared, the death toll would only be approximately 15 Thousand.

  45. Media are turning what a doctor and President say into a bout of some sort. Thrump fired everyone around him for less. But like any good Christian they know they really need the Scientest at the end of the day not G

  46. Forget political parties. This is about the diseased consciousness that runs rampant among those with power over others, and I'm not just talking about the Jeff Bezos types and politicians who serve at the feet of Jeff Bezos types. This is about Dark Ages, locked-in-cement minds that refuse to evolve. What this crisis is illuminating all over the place, in every way, shape and form, is a failure of consciousness; this is the real bottom line.

  47. why not do what Fauci suggests and stay in Lock down forever and take Bill Gates depopulating vaccines and wad Fauci's his pockets so he can push his drugs on you

  48. There are way WAY to many ignorant people in the country… this is exactly why we have a moron in chief and another bunch of morons in the senate!!

  50. 6:25 —> this is exactly what is wrong with nowadays media and the perpetual racism in this country! Interrupting her while she is speaking on black lives on the everyday racism and how people are getting killed directly. And he switches to her “final word” about the same thing she had already said. I think she handled it perfectly gracefully. And I get he had his time constraints and his job to do and people yelling at him from the wings, but cmon man… that’s the issue right there!

  51. Wow, late breaking news, employers have a moral obligation to protect their workers. News flash, it is the law for employers to take care of their employees. As a general contractor in California there is OSHA, at worse I could go to jail if I fail in my obligations and workers get badly hurt. No need to be a drama queen like the fool in this video all scared about people doing what people want to do get back to work. Bankrupting companies because of this ill advise shutdown of businesses is some what immoral. We give a consent to be governed by our officials. We don't give them power over us. We consented to the shutdowns, we did not obey the order. At no time have we the people decided to allow the fate of our pursuit of happiness to be taken from us. Get all the wimpy people out of the way as we get back to work and take care of our selves.

  52. Yes well done faucci! You destroyed amercan dream,all good and imocent in this country but Good will destroy you as it is written in the bible!

  53. Fauci and Bill Gates needs stay home with all poisson vaccines made, but American will go out to work and be free.

  54. Systematic genocide by the GOP and Trump!!!!!! Genocide for the middle class and the poor and the old.

  55. LOVE Bernie Sanders AND Elizabeth Warren. She/He does not hesitate to call a spade a spade. This country needs to take a GOOD LOOK at itself. It is NOT at all A GREAT COUNTRY, as becomes now EVIDENT TO THE WHOLE WORLD. No country can lay claim to "greatness" when you consider the horrible healthcare mess, which is incredibly discriminatory. There are numerous other issues that are much better in what ignorant Americans call "socialist" countries, which are in reality capitalist countries in which the brutal capitalism that exists in the US is REGULATED and in which SOCIAL PROGRAMS such as the SOCIAL Security in the US are forming a safety net in which illness does not bankrupt its citizens. BTW, the QUALITY OF LIFE for the average citizens in Europe is much, much, much better than in the US. I am not speaking in ignorance, I spent half of my life in either continent and countries, the US and Europe.
