  1. where's McConnell protesting about refusing help for the people of Kentucky because helping people is Socialism? Does he now accept that caring for the people who live in our communities is a moral necessity especially after such devastating events? Democratic socialism helps people rebuild especially when mother nature is harsh.

  2. So, the anti-Biden crowd turned up to tell President Biden how unpopular he is?
    Hey! While I'm absolutely no fan of our current PoTUS, I somehow don't think trying to politicize this tragedy is a very bright idea…. But then again, this IS Kentucky, so no one should be surprised! Never mind that their beloves Senator Turtle voted against providing federal aid to other states who were hit by natural disasters.

  3. Mandate overweight (78% hospitalization/deaths CDC) twice weekly exercise/diet program or be terminated for non compliance with the mandate. We have known for 2 yrs that obesity increases the risk of hospitalization/deaths over 300% CDC! Yet obesity (along with number of deaths per year) as increased during the pandemic. Overweight need to take some accountability for being the number 1 risk factor currently overwhelming the healthcare community.

  4. More deaths and hospitalizations with omicron coming in for winter

    But reports say omicron was reportedly mild cases and kinda like a mild cold 🤔🤔🤔

    Whos lying…?

  5. What percentage of cases/hospitalization/deaths are overweight per CDC? What number of cases/hospitalization/deaths would be eliminated by eliminating the majority risk factor?

  6. The morning top news should be, how the republiklan GOP traitors and their unpatriotic supporters are traitors to the United States of America.
    The top news stories should be how the republiklan GOP traitors in Congress have been exposed by the texts and the phone calls made Jan 6 to overthrow the government of the united states of America.
    TREASON, TREASON, TREASON, GUARANTEED.
    These are the traitors of America who sit in Congress and make laws, and vote on bills that they have money invested in.

  7. Let's get this straight. You got a college campus that everyone suppose to be vaccinated. But you have over 400 covid cases and rising. Sorry the science doesn't add up.

  8. ###HELP THE Homeless # what is the president and mayors doing to help the homeless doing the pandemic shelters are overloaded and some people have viruses## outbreak a covid 19 help is needed in Detroit people are sleeping in vacant houses and it's getting cold swatting in hallways of apartments president help the homeless

  9. KENTUCKY – Time to reconfigure the property allotments and zoning laws in the County struck by the tornado.
    The community of people would be wise to build new structures out of the path of destruction and the structures themselves have to serve a double use and purpose, 1., for living and 2., for emergency shelter. Climate catastrophes is the impetus for these changes .

  10. President Biden is pledging to do all he can to bring assistance to the affected region and thats a good thing. But lets all find a way to help out even if in a small way. Together we can do a lot. Also all homes and buildings must have a safe and secure tornado shelter! We can find a way to get this accomplished.So many lives could have been saved if only they had a tornado shelter.
