  1. His double speak of “Doing things like never before” was true. We were mocked and called crazy. This man is the death of America.

    1. @James F Im 87 and have to wear a diaper due to bladder problems, thats what happens when you get old.

    1. @Stephanie S We used to recognize this as Authoritarianism before Russia and China started funding extremist right wing groups

    2. And that was asked about Nixon, post-Watergate break in. Then a couple years passed before he left office. This all takes time. There is currently a committee investigating Jan 6, the events of the days. Then we shall see – but likely a grand jury. Meanwhile, in NY, their AG is reviewing Trump’s business dealings. This all takes time… He has no respect for it, but the Constitution does protect Trump as a citizen with legal rights – the main one: Due Process. Due Process is currently ongoing.

    3. There are STILL morons out there that think he’s the best president in history. It’s hard to fathom.

  2. My dad was alive during the Nixon years, he was a teenager at the time, by the time Nixon resigned, he was in his 20’s, he said compared to Trump, Nixon was bad, but Trump is way worse, how is Trump not arrested yet? Lock him up already. Also now my dad is in his 60’s.

    1. @MARTHA SHARTZER well.Such language says it all. The fascist left always wants to destroy the others. I live in Niagara Falls it’s a close target for you.

    2. @Tesfay Kiros Come on down unless you are worried about your own eulogy. Whether you are Tesfay Kiros or Kiros Tesfay with multiple ids recorded in 4 different states, it is not that difficult to tell when trash talk is cheap. Keep building your rap sheet if you wish. My state thinks better of a 73 yr old female who still works a FT job than the fool who thought he could intimidate her. Make my day, I don’t expect to be rewarded in Heaven after putting notches on my belt. You picked the wrong game to play, one you can not win.

    1. @crxess Don’t worry about someone putting more lies in your mouth crxess, I’ve read your posts, you really learn easily.

    2. @JC Demp75 Twisting of Known information to fit an unknown narrative through Speculation, Assumption and straight up Opinion(Lying)
      Odd that – Corporate Cable Networks have Tall Tails not covered in Mainstream Network News regulated by the FCC.

    3. @crxess you can’t prove one thing that trump has actually done Google it there all lies he is the only president in history to actually do nothing

    1. Until the radical left is held accountable for its false propaganda, stolen elections, broken borders, riots, looting, vandalism, exploitation of a pandemic, slaughtering of untold millions of unborn children, human trafficking, critical race theory shoved down the throats of young children, America remains a joke.

    1. @Roger Jamespaul Is that serious question? The human genome, the genetic code in each human cell, contains 23 DNA molecules each containing from 500 thousand to 2.5 million nucleotide pairs. DNA molecules of this size are 1.7 to 8.5 cm long when uncoiled, or about 5 cm on average.

      You have about 10 trillion cells in your body, so if you stretched the DNA in all the cells out, end to end, they’d stretch over 744 million miles. The moon is only about 250,000 miles away, so all your DNA would stretch to the moon and back almost 1500 times. The sun is 93,000,000 miles away, so your DNA would reach there and back about 4 times!

      The complex DNA code was a product of intelligent design, just like the binary code. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure it out, but do you want proof? Here’s proof: Fifty two leading evolutionary biologists and mathematicians came together in Philadelphia to answer the following question: Given 3.5 billion years, in absolute perfect conditions, what is the chance of even a single DNA molecule evolving?

      The answer they came up with: one chance out of ten to the 80th power. That’s quite a large number to comprehend. To put it in perspective, that’s the estimated number of atoms that compose the universe. So the probability of a DNA molecule evolving, are as good as locating one singly marked atom out there in the universe somewhere.

    2. @Ron Williams
      Take it down a notch to 0.1%
      They wanted to impeach Obama over a Tan suit!
      And clutched pearls over Michelle wearing sleeveless top..

  3. Sherlock Holmes could have had Stevie Wonder as his only witness and figured out with all the “Personal” shifting from the post office to the dept. of defense that he had an eye witness.

    1. Fun fact: Cognitive Dissonance is also what the German population suffered from in the 1940’s…….

      “Those who don’t study history are doomed to repeat it, those that do are doomed to watch others repeat it.”

    2. @HGChaosNL why are you so obsessed with nazis lol. Did you watch a documentary on it or something recently?

    3. ​ @Florida Man Because I majored in history and fascism is on the rise in America. It’s relevant again thanks to Trump and the GOP.

  4. Putin’$$$$ biggie mistake ! Underestimating his enemy ; True American’s.
    R.I.P. brave American heroes , Capital police officers.

  5. This really reflects poorly on the GOP members of Congress who voted against conviction on impeachment twice and still support him and his actions.

    1. @deathbytheblade trolls call people trolls honey. Thanks for demonstrating that you have no clue what is going on again

    2. @Squashed8Ball it’s ok for you to be confused and promote pychobabble….. It’s also ok for you to lack comprehension skills…… Better work on that….

    3. @evan doe You’re just like Trump. Lose BIGLY and yet pretend to win. Lies and projection til the cows come. The only difference between you is Trump knows he is lying but you’re crazy enough to actually believe your own nonsense.

    1. @Christoph Rydzewski There was a rogue group last summer. It wasn’t good but under that kind if chaos otherwise upstanding citizens would go and steal something in hopes of having it for a while ( this isn’t good obviously) Attacking our Capitol is an entirely different situation it’s the seat of power for the NATION. Look at how dictators of the past came along and tell me something weird isn’t happening.

  6. Imagine how much better you’d feel if every politician who’s taken help from Russia were removed from office, if they’re still in office, and sent to prison once they’re out of office.

  7. The future of the USA does not look too bright if he and all this craziness is not dealt with accordingly as soon as possible. Please DOJ don’t let the USA became another Hungary.

  8. Interestingly, we commemorate today the signature of the Voting Rights Act, August 6th 1965

  9. “100 Times Worse Than Nixon”, yet there is no official DOJ investigation to hold him accountable for his conduct..don’t figure!!!
