  1. Avatar Anthony Doucette says:

    Why is it that our government can give so much handouts to corporations via corporate tax but they can give back the money they took from the people who need it most. 30,000! +record food bank lines? Corporations need to be better citizens.

  2. Avatar April Yates says:

    This is Thanksgiving. We should be thankful for what we have and appreciate the little things such as our family and our health. Yes we can all be grateful to have a good amount of work, money for comfort, and food for our family. These are just things that we take for granted. We are quick to judge our peers and yet we fail to see our own issues. We shame others for mistakes, all the while making sure that we are not exposing our skeletons in turn. We are too prideful to see how hurtful we can be, however we take offense, attacking those who we believe are opposing our views. We are supposed to be the United States of America. Not some horrible example for the whole world to have a laugh at our expense.

    • Avatar Wendy Shackelford says:

      Well said!

  3. Avatar Patty Nellis says:

    Not everyone in line is there because there hungry there taking it because its free

  4. Avatar Aaron Hemingway says:

    Donald Trump’s incompetence did this to us Trump had well advance knowledge of the coming pandemic that was getting ready to hit America.. predict was their name that was the name of the office that Obama put into the White House 2 Monitor and track viruses and pandemics before they hit America Donald Trump fired them because they were appointed by Barack Obama we all heard his voice on that recording saying that this virus is more deadlier than the flu five times as deadly but he continued to tell the American people something totally different and now he’s hollering four more years for more years four more years in what? In a penal Institution you are complicit in the death of 250,000 Americans

    Ronald Reagan: wealth is trickling down
    Reality: poverty is trickling up

    • Avatar painter ken says:

      I’m feeling trickled about you??

  6. Avatar pei9030 says:

    I can’t stand children are hungry. People waiting in line to get charitable food. It’s all Trump‘s fault

    • Avatar JVR says:

      This hunger problem is not an American problem. It is a worldwide problem Because of the lockdowns imposed by world leaders. It destroyed the world economy. The countries that did not lockdown are not having this issue. It’s an agenda. Wake up! It’s not a left right thing.

  7. Avatar Anthony Scimeca says:

    Keep closing everything down. This is going to get worse if you keep closing everything down.

    • Avatar Later_Daze_ says:

      When did Texas seriously close down? They’ve been against closing down since the beginning, and now they’re reaping what they sowed. Moron.

  8. Avatar Ken says:

    Capitalism and corruption is killing so many and now many are dying of hunger. So sad. Hope God end this world soon.

  9. Avatar TheDon Wins says:

    How bout go back to work, you think bldens lockdowns are going to make things better? What a broad awakening we will all see, many regrets are coming our way.

  10. Avatar 馬囯通靈人Merlin the magician says:

    The judgement on humans for all the wrong doing

  11. Avatar Allegheny Natural QHHT Hypnosis says:

    Thank Trump and Moscow Mitch for screwing over the American people. Can’t wait for Biden to take over so people will get some relief.

  12. Avatar Norm French says:

    Congress don’t care they like playing politics but among themselves they don’t care about the people they’re rich they got a lot of money they’re setting good $1,200 check that was good enough for many years to come that’s what they think any help they gave out last April that’s it you won’t see no more they got to save it it was set back and watch us suffer they’re loving it otherwise they would have done something by now but if they’re being pushed if they really have to they’ll probably be April of next year then they’ll think about it and then they’ll start over on the package again you’re going to get it you really need it you deserve it it’s a taxpayer’s money but they want to hurt it they’re doing a good job they’re not helping the people and they’re loving it they’re just pump you up make you feel good fit the package is being good all coming together good but then something comes up so they got to start all over cuz they don’t agree on anything that’s politicians

  13. Avatar Tamara Lee says:

    Ef you Trump!!!

  14. Avatar B C says:

    Sad but true. This too will pass all due to the Democrats led by nasty nancy.

  15. Avatar JESSICA SCHWARZ says:

    This is the so-called most advanced, greatest nation on Earth? A country full of hungry people with no health care?

  16. Avatar Tequila D'killa says:

    Why are so few people wearing masks at the South Florida Food Bank?
    People never listen and learn

  17. Avatar Cote Parker says:

    We shouldn’t be like this. If only trump had taken seriously the pandemic.

  18. Avatar Matt F. says:

    So truly sorry to see this. Are these the same people who voted for Trump?

  19. Avatar Matt F. says:

    On top of this Mnuchin holds back 500 billion in aid; today. McConnell sent all of his friends home on vacation as well. Beyond criminal.

  20. Avatar Phong Dao says:

    Wow, I noticed the tail lights of a newer Mercedes getting food in the truck. Driving expensive vehicles, gas guzzlers, and I’m sure with the latest iPhones. What happened with all that extra money people received during unemployment. My wife and I were able to save her extra unemployment where I know people used that to buy new cars, phones, etc….I don’t believe all of them need the food, they are just hoarding.

  21. Avatar 300 MAX says:

    You guys should have voted for BERNIE SANDERS it’s time to become a progressive!!!

    • Avatar Search Wion says:

      or Andrew Yang for UBI

      @Search Wion Thats right it’s time for people to wake up

  22. Avatar Mimi Stern says:

    Dump is preparing for a table laden with the finest of foods….while Americans are waiting in line for a box of food to feed their children.

    • Avatar Osama Bin Drinkin says:

      Yeah and what is Pelosi and Newsome preparing for while their state crumbles and they dine out in Napa?!?

  23. Avatar Melissa Denbo says:

    I just went to Walmart, the day before Thanksgiving the store is usually packed to the brim with long lines. It was surprisingly slow, I was able to get what I needed no long lines in less than 10 minutes

  24. Avatar riptorn says:

    Communism is being implemented and people don’t even notice.

  25. Avatar Sherry Jee says:

    Hmm a lot of nice, new vehicles in line..what about the ones who dont have a car??

  26. Avatar VOS says:

    Thanks Democraps for shutting down our business’s !

  27. Avatar Tes Tos says:


  28. Avatar Bryn Phillips says:

    ‘Only in America’ is a odd statement. Many if not most developed democracies have systems in place to protect the vulnerable or those in hardship. I think a lot of Americans don’t really understand what it is actually like in other countries round the world, not the good or the bad. As someone who has had even minimal exposure to other countries systems I can safely say how lucky I am but also how much for many developed nations, things like food banks for safety nets are a standard, not an exception.

  29. Avatar sar50anga says:

    amazing…..people lining up for Food in their luxury cars….just amazing

  30. Avatar Lisa Eston says:

    0:57 my entire life changed thanks to, *p a i d t o b e h o m e .c o m*

  31. Avatar KT Chong says:

    Nothing is gonna change until a French/Russian Revolution and guillotines come to America.

  32. Avatar Nancy M. Ross says:

    This is a picture created by Mitch McConnell, Trump, and the Republican party. This is a picture of getting away with murder. Hold them responsible. Recall them where possible. File suit and charge them with negligent homicide and intentional suffering because they don’t want to spend their money.

  33. Avatar sam 57 says:

    A Useless president never take care of his people during the pandemic

  34. Avatar Charles Burks says:

    Thanks for all the help but why cant people see what’s really going on. We need some real reporters in these days of no true fact reporting ???

  35. Avatar Tas Tapsas says:

    Thanksgiving in Trump’s America. Thanks for the 12 million infected. Thanks for the 260 thousand deaths. Thanks for the economic catastrophe. Thanks for the massive unemployment. Thanks for the endless food lines. Thanks for all the lies. Thanks for the suffering. Thanks for abandoning the people of the country. Thanks for trying to destroy our healthcare. Thanks for all the corruption. Thanks for the unceasing criminal activity. Thanks for the destruction of law and order. Thanks for all of the incompetence and the indifference. Thanks for the ceaseless lies and the undermining of our place in the world. Oh, yeah, a thank you from all the rich people for the tax cuts, taxes that they don’t pay, and tax cuts which did nothing for the economy even before the virus struck. Oh, and a big thanks from Trump to all those marks who voted for him, and a big thanks for allowing him and his family to grift every day while he played golf for an entire year of his four years of doing absolutely nothing to make America great. Thanks Donald for all of the conning, all the treason, all of the obstructions of justice, all of the corruption. A big thanks to Donald from all of those dying in hospitals, from all of those about to be evicted, and from those who are lining up for food. Thanks Donald, a job well done.

    • Avatar Ronald Lindeman says:

      I saved this rant for when I see my trump relatives. Thanks.

  36. Avatar C Jones says:

    Stop starving ppl blaming it a cold thisis getting old. Event 201 is covid which ishow ur doing ur great reset. Great deception. Sinners . Repent or dont its your soul not mine. Children of the lie you news people are, lackies of the centralbanks. Scum who lend to germany who started ww1 with our nations gold. The fed, world econ forum. The vatican, u r not true friends of christ nor truth. U serve u false science ….more ppl are catching on… Open the library, let the poor folk research this… With out the tv. Tell them how autoposys have been changed… To pump up the numbers. We did not forget , the longer u drag this crap out, the obvious u make it. I pray for my friends, and my enemies that ypu find morals.

  37. Avatar Betta fish says:

    The poor in American has nice cars but no food. The poor in Asia has food but no nice cars.

  38. Avatar Frans van Mook says:

    The resullt of 4 years of MAGA Trump. Make America Hungry Again. Thanks to Trump and his cult followers.And still 70 million Americans wanted Trump back!

  39. Avatar cattigereyes1 says:

    Republican government failing America! Democrats ignoring the reality of food banks running dry! This is America! It’s Trumps four years in office!

  40. Avatar melanie says:

    Just a quick fact check, Canada has had food banks for the past 30 years for the food insecure and Britain I’m sure many other European countries do the same…so NO not only in America.

  41. Avatar DW A says:

    americans who love to think that they are the best country in the world and love patronising other countries can now eat humble pie this thanksgiving. don’t inflate your ego and go interfering in other country’s internal matters. clean up your own country before trying to teach people how to live.

  42. Avatar R Russow says:

    I’ll bet the GOP , aren’t worried about the people !! They’ve turned there back to the people once again .

  43. Avatar 2011Mamamia says:

    I wonder who were the Trump voters who are benefitting from free food.? Thanks to those with the soul to give. Did Trump & his “billionaire” family help at all?

  44. Avatar Bryan Craig says:

    This food situation is all thanks to Trump and he has the balls to come and address the nation and say the Stock Market hit 30K.
    This is the type of man he, just NO EMPATHY.

    The Full TRUE Story of Trump and COVID-19
    Through the mind of a moron who says he should be given a BADGE of HONOR for managing the Covid crisis. Here, this will wake you up and it’s not by FOX, CNN. MSNBC, or any other media channel it’s by the CDC. And Trumpsters can’t believe they lost. Like Trump said the BEST is yet to come. It came and you lost. You have killed enough people. Please share. Trump ran America like many of his failed businesses.

    Trump said Obama left the cupboards bare. But then why were the stockpiles left, Trump have them moved from the CDC to Washington? What was the ulterior motive? He hated China but sent them to China. Was Trump preparing a deal with China to buy more crops from the US and doing China a favor?

  75. Avatar A A says:

    The way the world is built right now, it’s not sustainable. The people who have money and those who make the world work control the narrative. Most people have No idea what is going on and staying w/ the flow. The government is making money from nothing and it’s being stabilized by going into stocks, BTC, and other ways to make the world work. People use tech and other things that keep people distracted from issues like this. If this can remain to be rare and the strong, smartest, lucky enough to win or generate money somewhere that others have no idea about or taking money from those who bought at the top then got dumped on, they will make it. Where do we go from here from other issues of death such as dying from COVID, cancer, heart disease, and many other things that happen All the time that go unnoticed in top news? How long until people start to think living Decades on Earth is not a good idea? A lot of people just see those making it but neglect the other areas like these and the fact jobs are being replaced by AI and e-commerce forever. With the way human advancement, it would be very hard for people to die out nowadays leaving a lot of Healthy people with nowhere to go. As long as people don’t put serious things into Question where opening up doors for things (that we consider wrong) to go wrong remain wide open or opened Wider, people should be ok, for now.

  76. Avatar Youtuber479 says:

    This is why we can’t shutdown our nation.

    Either work and risk getting a virus that has a 99.8% survival rate, or stay home from work, run out of money, die of certain starvation. Logic needs to takeover.
