Beshear is doing nothing in Kentucky to help the people that have lost everything in the floods!!!

How many more innocent people have to die while Beshear does nothing!!!

Poor Kentucky. First the tornado that wiped out towns in western Kentucky where my great grandparents were from now the poor folks of Appalachia. They have so little especially after their and W.Va.'s energy industry has been destroyed.

Ain't nothing like a mothers instinct when child is in danger.

Kentucky, where is Mitch McConnell???

Also, build a DAM at rivers, duh. Science.

On a good note, less cars driving pollution in Kentucky.

Now, do Kentucky believe Climate CHANGE is real?

This mom saving her kids, kudos! Sorry it happened because your State didn't protect you by building dam and emergency management services.

FEMA will cover your housing, but it will take years for you to recover.

We had one of those 1 in a million storms here during Winter. Sure could have used some of that Global Warming then.

Jeremy A August 2, 2022 - 2:33 AM

You know what CNN.. I'm going to stop hating on Joe Biden. I've realized he's just a useful IDIOT, doing what he's told to do. The man can't form a complete sentence for crying out loud.

Cheezy Krafts August 2, 2022 - 2:33 AM

Where are McConnell and Paul for these people? Even Cruz got backlash for ditching the Texas freeze storm. This is the second time in less than a year that Kentucky has been devastated by climate change. Why are their representatives allowed to ignore this?

Max Mustermann August 2, 2022 - 2:33 AM

Did CNN describe the flood as "watery but mostly peaceful"?

Moses Timothy August 2, 2022 - 2:34 AM

I give 75 marks out of 100 to liz Truss🇬🇧🇬🇧🇬🇧
I give only 50 marks out of hundred to Rusi Sunak as a successful party leader ,,we need a a person who needs to unite the party members first ,,but the prime minister job is very easy ,,
Because less tax is conservative party ..
Both are crying like babies adamant to sit in the seat of Prime minister,,
But I bless Liz Truss to next ten years plan of improvements in all sectors ,,
She should make Rishi Sunak a foreign secretary ,, cabinet ,,
God bless both of you ,,
I have watched the full question hours .
Regarding tax ,,
I want to ask a question to liz Truss,,,,
Will you allow any business man with grievances with high tax meet you personally and explain their depraved situation ?
Will you cut by your authority not fearing anybody in uk ,and do a favor to him who met you ,,?
Because business is the backbone of a economically strong stable county,
Tax shouldn't be like freebies.
I agree .
But it mustn't be too high .
By making more tax you can save the economy of a country but you can't save a poor citizen..
So liz Truss place is save the people save the economy..
We will grow our business..
No need of high tax ,
To a question about united kingdom scotland or Ireland or wales ,,I am a child of them ,,
She said ,
I exported their whiskey to USA and win their confidence as a trade minister ,,
Cutting tax or increasing are not going to do any magic ,,but infact cutting tax will do a magic ,,
Business will grow ,, automatically people would pay tax ,🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏

Dang, maybe climate change is real and won't just affect coastal states…who knew??

dandave13 August 2, 2022 - 2:37 AM

Im willing to wager a lot of those people in Kentucky are climate change deniers and vote for politicians who deny climate change as well. If so no sympathy here.

Jon Erlandson August 2, 2022 - 2:37 AM

some people believe man cannot control the weather… be that as it may… he should at least hold it in respect….

Yeah So What August 2, 2022 - 2:37 AM

So this is the beginning of the climate push.. I liked it better in the 70s as we were more fearful!!

Shparkel one August 2, 2022 - 2:38 AM

You hear all the repubs bitching about the oil pipeline canceled, the jobs lost and on and on. We need a water pipeline from the east that is constantly flooding to help the
4O + millions of people in the West who are running out of Water.
Is anybody even talking about this. Instead ofa wall right now, We need water.
Once We run out of it the Wall will be obsolete anyway. The
greatest country in the world ? The one that won't take care of its ownpeople? The one who has managed to divide so horribly the people. The Millions of people in this "Great" country who have literally and figuratively
sold their souls to the devil when they chose to worship the orange
maniac to reduce our daily lives to sadness and frustration? Thatgreat country?

Dave Mulka August 2, 2022 - 2:43 AM

CNN this is real news, so why are you reporting on this sad incident?
You are not worthy of reporting real news. You are and have always been a pathetic one sided proaganda tool. Tne entire country is well aware of what you are. Your ratings clearly show this.

Bill Argueta August 2, 2022 - 2:43 AM

Bidem will be down there right after he visits the southern border and d.c where they are overwhelmed by migrants.
