“Totally Under Control”: New documentary explores Trump administration's COVID-19 failure

As the situation in the United States spirals in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic and the country plunges headlong towards a critical election, it’s apt timing for a documentary-like “Totally Under Control,” that is a behind-the-scenes look at the Trump administration’s failure to handle COVID-19.

Shot in secret over the last five months, co-directors Alex Gibney, Suzanne Hillinger and Ophelia Harutyunyan interviewed scientists, medical professionals, volunteers and U.S. government officials — some who put their careers on the line to speak their minds — about the dire state of the country as it faces more than 210,000 deaths of its citizens and an infected president.

In an interview with Global News, Gibney, Hillinger and Harutyunyan talk about their documentary, one that looks at the Trump administration’s handling of the COVID-19 pandemic.

    Hey global!
    Stop reporting on American problems that Canadians don't give a f*** about.

    And start reporting on the fact that the finance committee is not getting the documents that they require in order to do their job.

    Start focussing on Canadian issues leave the Americans to burn they made their bed now they can lay in it, its not our problem.

    Why were you not reporting on the violent radicals that showed up in Red Deer.

    Seriously Global focus on Canadian issues,
    or we can start acting like the Americans and burn your building down first.

    Even with heavily padded numbers, the death count is nowhere near the two million deaths all the 'experts' claimed there would be at this time.

    ? The individual states are responsible for responses to outbreaks, why not a documentary on how each state responded to the epidemic? What worked, what did not?

    02:07 If you had any faith in the US Government under the Bushes, Obama et al you were uninformed and programmed to accept murderous global war for oil company profits. The only motivation of Americans is selfish profit and exploitation of others. From FDR to Trump.

    ‘Totally Under Control 2020’ has just released today (Oct.13) a must watch documentary at the Republican Party and Donald Trump’s undermining of how deadly COVID-19 is. It is an in-depth look to how the United States government put its citizens at risk which now has killed over 215 thousand citizens due to the incompetent handling and the inadequate response to the pandemic outbreak during the early months of the spreading of the virus with-in the US. 👍🙏

    The Globalist cabal will do everything to stay in power to misinform the world population.
    Canadians should ask why Global News believes it is so important that they bring an anti-Trump documentary on tv.
    Trump says it loud: No socialism and No communism !
    Global News will NOT tell Canadians that when Bill Gates left Microsoft and started his foundation it was all about population control. He invested 10 billion dollar in this Covid19 vaccination program and said in public: I will twentyfold my 10 billion investment in one decennium. Clearly it is all about money. He said also in public that he wants the whole world population to be vaccinated. These people are mentally ill, and should be locked up.
    Global News is a public owned network and is controlled by the New Communist Party of Canada: The Liberal Party.

    Health Experts have recommended a new pandemic approach to one of
    “Focused Protection." It calls for lifting restrictions on the general
    population to develop herd immunity while implementing measures to
    protect the vulnerable. They say we need an approach that balances the
    risks and benefits of reaching herd immunity, allow those who are at
    minimal risk of death to live their lives normally to build up immunity
    to the virus through natural infection, while better protecting those
    who are at highest risk.” Protect the at-risk community by tighter
    restrictions surrounding nursing homes and essential item deliveries to
    vulnerable people.“Current lock down policies are producing devastating
    effects on short and long-term public health … leading to greater excess
    mortality NOW & in years to come.”

    New Jersey: the highest per capita rate of COVID deaths of any jurisdiction in the world.
    New York: the second-highest per capita rate of COVID deaths of any jurisdiction in the world.

    So, when can I expect the documentary on Governor Phil Murphy and Governor Andrew Cuomo and their disastrous handling of the outbreaks in their respective states?
