    Now more then ever the saying “WE WILL NOT FORGET” again should be used, especially during this election year. C’mon! Of course he wants us to forget it. Let’s Not!

    One does not simply forget a failure as big as this and expect a different result all you can do is forgive and keep moving forward.

    How come none of the media is talking about one of the most important things mentioned here; having health tied to your job. I think this pandemic has exposed the danger of this.
    It too bad that Bernie wasn’t the candidate. He’s the candidate we need but not the one the country deserves. He’s the only one that spoke truth regardless of how it might impact polls, which is perhaps the rarest trait of a politician. But the DNC influence was too large an obstacle but one that could’ve been overcome if enough people demanded it.

    So many promises he made to America, you are nowhere near the end of your battle.

    I’m sorry, but Trump should NOT be allowed to bully the press like that. It doesn’t matter how tough their questions get — those are *people*, same as him (though perhaps more quality people, given that none of them are even half as mean-spirited, selfish, rude, arrogant, and small-minded as he is). Those reporters should not have to just sit there and silently take that s*** so that they don’t lose their seat in the room — I work in customer service, and even *I* would feel secure enough in my job to tell someone to please not talk to me like that. Those reporters should be allowed to demand basic human decency and respect as much as anyone else.

    Why is only Maddow talking about the fact that when you declare a national emergency it is literally the job of the federal govt to take control and run the show.
    Also, he sold supplies to other countries whilst being warned how many americans could die.
    He didnt continue with pandemic measures put in place by Obama admin.
    Trump has no idea what he is doing, he is in over his head.
