  1. Wow , would you look at that . Information on the push back and trying to silence the lab leak theory in the early days comes out , they all of a sudden find the animal that they think Covid started from ………. funny how they could not find anything for three years . HOW STUPID DO YOU THINK WE ARE ?

  2. I love how the article's title and thumbnail suggest that 'you know what' came from a raccoon… but the end of the video paints an entirely different picture.

  3. Tell me your in bed with the ccp without telling me your in bed with the ccp

  4. How stupid do you think we are? Thanks for misinformation.

  5. 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂 Also 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂

  6. Was this the mascot for the wuhan Lab ?

  7. Well, that puts to rest the theory that it was transmitted by the Spotted Kangarooster.

  8. No wonder I started washing my food after COVID 😂😂…It wasn't Raccoons, it was that cartoon Fauci! Fauci you M*****F*****!

  9. After the last three years of lunacy, I don't believe anything that "experts" and "scientists" try to tell us. They insult our intelligence. I'm surprised or not surprised that they haven't linked the origin of the COVID virus to climate change or naughty unicorns! "Trust the science!" Please excuse me while I laugh.

  10. Bs stop blaming COVID 19 on animals china created it who did the study china

  11. Covid was man made in China. Believe in science remember

  12. This sounds like (and IS) a crazy conspiracy theory. It was a lab leak you insane propagandists!

  13. Wtf? NBC thinks we’re this gullible lmao 🤡🤣

  14. The 🤡🌎 continues

  15. The virus literally came out of a lab in Wuhanin 2019

  16. China has deep pockets and NBC is on the payroll.

  17. Who collected the data? Why has this old data been unreleased for so long if it could dismiss the lab leak theory? Smells like🐂💩

  18. This literally looks like an animal from avatar the last airbender

  19. You have to be freaking kidding me. This is a joke. NBC news is a joke for pushing this bs.

  20. Hold on. The Raccoon dogs weren’t sampled, but we think it comes from the Raccoon dogs. Got it

  21. Breaking News… There was a chocolate outbreak in Hershey, Pennsylvania… Hurry, let’s get those “really smart” libs to put their heads together and figure out where it originated from. 🤦🏻

  22. Chinese propaganda from NBC !!

  23. Bats, labs, and now Raccoon dogs? Jeez, I know it takes a while to find out where the virus came from but could they not keep bringing up new theories every 5 minutes?

  24. Media: "we strongly believe we have evidence the infection came from a raccoon dog"
    Public: "oh sweet so you have a positive test result from a raccoon dog?"
    Media: "ummmm no but this is what we have chosen to believe based on no evidence"

  25. We’ll there you have it, case closed 🤔

  26. NBC with this BS! It came from the lab . Fauci lied under oath to congress that’s a fact . Gain of function research

  27. I really hope the brain washed people who actually believe this garbage is true wake up and realize how disgusting the media and the democratic regime really is.

  28. Lies. They think an odd animal will take our attention from the truth. Shuddup!

  29. How do we know for sure that the samples came straight from the market and weren't tampered with? How do we know the animal(s) wasn't a lab test subject? And the best question yet: Why in the world are there raccoon dogs at a market? Are there any animals that those people in China won't eat?

  30. Use your brain people……three years later they come up with some "new analysis " that a racoon dog passed covid to a human? Wake up ,this is propaganda

  31. Yeah the lab is called the meat lab lol

  32. This is absolute garbage and what you get when "news" is a for profit business. It's really a shame.

  33. Lmao, oh we had all these raccoon dogs we forgot to sample while looking for an intermittent host. They for sure had it, not the lab that was working on coronaviruss from bats and doing gain of function research.

    OMFG do you even fact check your news at all? How dumb are people really?

  34. If my grandma had wheels she could of been a bike 😂

  35. Joe Rogan spoke on it being a lab leak good podcast no kizzy
