    Chicago, Portland, New York are not in the top 10 most violent crime ridden cities in the country. 8 of the top 10 are in republican held cities and states. Loke that matters. Number 1 being Anchorage Alaska, you said nothing about Tucson Arizona 3 times the national average in crime. Albuquerque New Mexicon one of the most violent cities in the nation. All red states. You shouldn’t appear as obviously unbalanced as you seem to be. Also in all 50 states, 23 of which are white and drug infested, only the democratic states had shootings and only black people were shooting or got shot. We know that in summer crime rises, unfortunate but true. This administration had 4 years to solve this problem, this ain’t new, he didn’t solve it even after he said he was the only one that could. What happened, all of a sudden the thing he promised to solve is now the fault of mayors and governors struggling under the weight of coronavirus and his administration’s ineptitude . So even with the full force of the American government behind him it’s still, according to him, someone else’s fault. I’m sure your channel and him will find a way to blame the crime in the white populated cities on someone, anything or everybody else. Because it couldn’t be that America is just a violent society. No, no. It has to be black people bad, white people better. Really nbc. In 2020 you are still apart of this message that we know is untrue. Do better.

    I had a “mild” case in February here in Sioux Falls. Then I got it again in mid June. It doesn’t really go away. I suspect 50 percent of the general public have been exposed and are asymptomatic. I never go out without a mask, and wash my hands all the time, and use antibacterial wipes when I go to the bathroom. It’s a terrible experience. I probably should have gone to hospital, but thought I was safer at home.

    The Feds going into Portland is NOT A constitutional crises,
    It’s an insurgence, riots that the democrate leaders refuse to shutdown! BLM and ANTIFA are financed by the Dems.
    This will be stopped, no matter what it takes!

  16. Steven Williams Reply

    If the testing alone costs anywhere from $100-$200, one can only guess how much the vaccine is going to cost. America!

  17. Lynne Allan Reply

    School would only work if it would be boarding schools. And our schools are not like that. We would have to isolate small groups with a teacher and do an education in a completely different style. Since that can’t sit well or even be understood by many it will not happen. ~ that’s educational priority first. It may not be emotional priority of children first. Just a different angle of thought.

    I like how y’all word things. “Could have a vaccine by the end of the year or beginning of next year.” Could have vaccine tomorrow, could never find a vaccine. The world could end tomorrow. Any thing could happen.

    Welcome to America: we prefer the past problems
    We don’t want to change the system
    We don’t want blacks
    We don’t want trans
    We prefer to stay in the past
    We prefer to suffer
    We prefer to ignore people who need help
    We want the middle class to suffer
    We want nothing to what people are saying
    We want power
    We want anarchy

    After all these years we still didn’t change instead we still want the past to be here we wanted equality but still we have the same old corrupt system and yet they aren’t bothering to change and make things better they just ignore us who have these words but now

    This Is America.

    The mayor of Portland is a moron. It’s not OK to send unmarked police to do illegal arrests, but at the same time, the mayor has absolutely no control over the city. He is delusional, something has to be done differently. It cannot continue as is.

  28. Jay Bee Reply

    Republicans are leaving the Trump train because he mocked masks and downplayed the virus and his ratings got LOW too due to that. He’ll put on any SHOW to get the vote. He just goes by principle of ‘what do people want to hear’.

    poverty, drugs (flown in and introduced in poor neighborhoods),unlawful incarceration, low wage essential workers, police brutality and gangs and being left behind in every aspect of life have plagued these communities for decades… everything was designed to lead to this. Release these fathers from these profit prisons so they can raise their sons to be men and stop the stigmatic racism to keep one group down while uplifting the other… it’s not just a black and brown problem, its a American problem.

    Wow! Trump wishes Ghislaine Maxwell! Why did he not say: “I understand she is in custody, and hope she can help authorities get to the bottom of the Epstein case and get justice for the young girls! Sounds like a dark cloud hanging over his head to me, and I don’t have the Trump derangement syndrome. His statement is very odd…Second WOW in this story! “FDA will approve vaccine if it’s 50% effective” Say what? LOL Are you kidding me??? That’s like taking your car to a garage to get it repaired and the shop has a 50% outcome repair is any good…!!!!! LOL I cannot believe this…50% effective? Give me a break.

    Why Amerca refused to follow these countries to wear mask in order to save thousand people’s life’s……….stop being selfish and think of others first…to wear mask and stay at home…..like the Asian countries above

  76. Prove its a fact Reply

    Even though NEW covid 19 death toll has reached ONE THOUSAND deaths in just one day. While at the same time, the NEW covid 19 infections one day total has reached *77 THOUSAND*

    * After the re-opening covid 19 is now infecting 1 in 3 children*
    *Before the re-opening 1 in 200-/+ children were becoming infected*

    With that information in mind. What would any logicality thinking parents conclude???
    1) *it IS safe to send your children back to school*

    2) *It IS safe to send your children into an enclosed environment*
    (an environment in which your children will be *FOR AT LEAST 4 HOURS every day*

    3) *if your children happens to become infected with covid 19 and dies* …
    you can find comfort in the following…
    At the time Covid 19 is infecting and killing more people than it ever did…

    *It was you that sent your children back to school*

    *You are the one that played Russian Roulette with the lives of your own children*

    The really ironic part is;…
    *Nobody forced to play Russian roulette with your children’s lives*

    *You did it WILLINGLY*

    You will always know
    *Sending your children back to school (while covid is infecting and killing more people than ever before) was the logical, smart, well thought-out thing to do*

    This news-anchor continues to ignore the annual occurrence of corona viruses: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p_AyuhbnPOI Let’s formulate the following common political goal: Bosses have to be legally responsible towards the grassroots, especially in groups with delegated powers (police ), Parties, governments, media, banks, infrastructure … even the military). We know the good, the bad and the ugly guys best in a direct (professional) environment. To support socially committed people and downgrade charlatans, we need to have regular triple reviews by superiors, colleagues and subordinates.
