      The sad thing is a lot of the idiots in the food lines voted for trump, decrying socialism and communism.

      Biden looters are coming near you


      Yes, because trump destroyed the economy, not the lockdowns over a virus with a 99% survival rate. Useful idiots like you won’t wake up until it’s too late.

    Trump and the Republicans have turned our country into Venezuela.

  5. Howdositfeel Vfusion Reply

    This is Trump’s America. Make America great again I think that did not work

    • KT Chong Reply

      America’s decline started long before Trump was elected. Trump is merely a symptom of the problem.

    • Howdositfeel Vfusion Reply

      @KT Chong I agree, but it’s still his America.

  6. keith parsons Reply

    The greatest country in the world, what a joke


      Yes, you are a joke. Stand in line.

  7. Howdositfeel Vfusion Reply

    This is the America of a one-term failed president.

  8. Thomas Spencer Reply

    After having control of all 3 branches of government for 3 years they brought us to a second depression… Good job Republicans.

  9. AngelaTiffany Rogers Reply

    This is so nice. Sad wish we had this in my city. Me and my children are facing homelessness no celebration of thanksgiving for us. If anyone may help my C app is my name. Thank you and God bless.



    • So Ni Reply

      I’m so sorry 😔

  10. Susan Bashynski Reply

    But Mitch McConnell and friends are on break, each at home with their millions (much of it funded by taxpayers who won’t eat this Thanksgiving), waiting for their servants to cook their meals and clean their kitchens after they feasts. Sick.


      Yes we are

  11. Jon Tucker Reply

    I haven’t eaten in three days,this is not fake news

    Longest lines in Texas and Florida! Guess what colour those two states are?!

    • Nadeline Daniel Reply


    • Jazz Li Reply

      Akwaaba Kitchen These two red state vote for trump so they should go to ask trump for food not a food bank

    • Crystal Vinz Reply

      Texas and Florida have way more people, and way more jobs, which have since fired those people…

  16. Matt F. Reply

    Are these the same people who voted for Trump? Why not ask them while you inquire if they can put food on their own table.


    Perfect. The beginning of the next 4 years. You voted for it America. Hope you enjoy it. No home and no food. Yeah, baby.

  18. Eavy Eavy Reply

    Didnt he left food bank empty for 4 years? And he dare complain he want 4 more years

  19. bagondreamer Reply

    the fact that one disfunctional presidency was able to cause this much pandemonium really says something about the prevailing underlying problems in the US

    • AY Evans Reply

      This is Trump’s legacy. This will linger in people’s memory longer than the injustice protests and even Stormy Daniels.

    • Abraham Lincoln Reply

      @AY Evans He started with many jobs for his citizens and ended with no jobs.

    Hope American people learned don’t waste food in the future

    • 2old4dispoop Reply

      How compassionate.
      Thanks. I’m so sure everyone in each of the cars weeping deserves that. You should volunteer so you can stand just before they get the box of food and say that. Hey bring your mom, or gram.

  28. Mr Jones Reply

    So many people in needs and most of these people taking food for free while driving 2 thousand dollars cars and more..smdfh

    • Mr Jones Reply

      @Th B perhaps… Is like asking or begging for money..if you have 5 dollars to spend or give away..will you give it to someone thats wearing 100 dollars shoes with a 150 dollars suit..clean shave nice haircut and has a cellphone on hand and wearing gold chain..or will you give those 5 dollares to a junkie person..dirty..smelly and old clothes that is hungry

    • Sierra Bleu Reply

      U mean 20,000$

    • Mr Jones Reply

      @Sierra Bleu 😂😂😂 wanted it to be conservative on the price level.. Thats why i said 2 g’s and/or more..to be inclusive enough

    • Th B Reply

      @Mr Jones u talking nonsense …
      Junkies food appetite is too thin.
      They love drugs more dan they love food…
      These people at the food banks got more to lose dan junkies..Dont put em in the same basket.

    • Mr Jones Reply

      @Th B Nevermind..

  29. Dann Marceau Reply

  30. beavis corholio Reply

    nice to see the most capitalist country paranoid about communism, going to get food from the government and begging for stimulus check, not communist check, USA currently living the communism their worst fear became it´s salvation.

  31. Jane Seamore Reply

    1 in 4 children? That’s beyond devastating. How incredibly unfair

  32. God’s Spiritual Poet Reply

    Psalm 86:12- I will give thanks to You, O Lord my God, with all my heart, And will glorify Your name forever.

    Psalm 118:21- I shall give thanks to You, for You have answered me, And You have become my salvation.

    1 Thessalonians 5:18- in everything give thanks; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.

    Colossians 3:17- Whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through Him to God the Father.

    Ephesians 5:20- always giving thanks for all things in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ to God, even the Father;

    Ephesians 1:3- Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ,

    Count all of your blessings one by one

    Always give thanks to God

    Open up and give and you will receive from God

    Thank you my Heavenly Father

    Are you willing to become a blessing to others?

    I hope once this pandemic is over these people remember those impoverished people that will be left behind and will return the favour.

  36. timething Reply

    Yet the GOP sent 1.5 Trillion to America’s richest people (who just socked it away) instead of where it was needed.

    • bass reemer Reply

      @Th B OK…just for you and I observe yahoos online…

    • X Ortiz Reply

      @bass reemer Now blame on the immigrants. ” The OWNERS.They spend billions of dollars every year lobbying to get what they want. Well, we know what they want. They want more for themselves and less for everybody else. But I’ll tell you what they don’t want. They don’t want a population of citizens capable of critical thinking. They don’t want well informed, well educated people capable of critical thinking. They’re not interested in that. That doesn’t help them.” George Carlin

    • bass reemer Reply

      @X Ortiz Well…if someone entered your home unannounced and uninvited, opened your fridge and ‘kindly’ removed your child’s milk stash you’d probably be a little ticked off. Now if someone you knew humbly begged you beforehand to borrow the milk, your wrath most likely would be lessened…

    • X Ortiz Reply

      @bass reemer Just like the Native Americans, but in their case it wasn’t just the fridge but their Home too.

  37. cindy clarke Reply

    Trump’s America is now a third world country, the only difference is people wait in cars for food

  38. Brian Reply

    I wonder how they’ll blame Obama for this?

    • tom11zz884 Reply

      They’ll find a way..lol

    • M F Reply

      No this is a pandemic, not Obama. Obama just doubled health insurance costs after promising to cut them by $2,500 per year per average family. He even more than doubled my daughter’s health insurance cost while she was going to college and making 30k waitressing at the same one. But hey he lied smoothly and articulately so it’s all good.

  39. D D Reply

    BREAD LINES. This is capitalism. We have food banks all over the place and we claim to not have “bread lines”. Now we actually have bread lines in the literal since. It didn’t take very long for so many people to be in such especially dire need. You’re all being stolen from every day by the bourgeoisie.

    • mrblackalchemist Reply

      @D D yep but I bet you many of those people voted TRUMP BABY. I swear the rich in the USA are just laughing at how stupid the masses are. No country as rich as the US would have such breadlines, if people were not so ignorant.

    And Trump is trying to con his supporters out of money to help pay for the legal battles regarding the election. Absolutely despicable and disgusting.

  41. Dale Kundtz Reply

    Thank God for the workers at the food banks and the people who are behind the scenes filling the boxes and bags to be handed out. These folks have helped keep many families alive. It stinks that in this great country so many people have to go to food lines to put food on our table. Too bad the politicians in Washington don’t know what that is like.

    If they’re really broke why don’t they get food stamp cards?! If their income is too high then they should not qualify for food bank aid either.

    Never heard the term “food-insecure” before. So is it time to take the word hungry out of the dictionary?

    • Uniqwia B Reply

      Really, it’s a term used a lot in public health.

    • Crystal Vinz Reply

      The term food-insecure doesn’t necessarily mean you have zero to eat. It’s a bit broader than that, meaning you might have some food, but you don’t know how long you can make it stretch, or you just plain don’t know where your next meal is coming from.

    Unemployment agencies are manipulating the system with the help of Trumps administration. The numbers are lies! Unemployment has not gone down but instead vice versa. It was a way for Mitch McConnell and the Republican party to reduce the American people out of unemployment. Thier planned failed and now more Americans are in dire need. Where is our help? this is what our leaders are capable of abandoning us during the worst pandemic ever.


    Wow, the so called ” greatest country in the world” so they keep telling us….What with this and they’re election debacle, health system….Ughhhhhh, somehow I think they may not be the greatest.I personally wouldn’t even put them in the top 100.
