  1. Trump is a great inventor. He created the legendary MAGA hats making it much easier to identify and stay away from brainless stupid folk.


    • @Mary Hera
      They aren’t their official title is “Fox ENTERTAINMENT News” that way they don’t have to act like responsible journalists, just the tabloid muck rakers that they are.

    • @Skartuga
      1. They would know the difference between “there” – locational and “their” – possessive.
      2. They would know how to spell “excuse”.
      3. If the fake votes don’t appear by November 23, the elections get certified anyways.
      4. There aren’t any fake votes, just a fake incumbent.
      5. If you remove your MAGA hat, your brain can start working properly.

    • @J B There is evidence dead people and minors voted. Whit that information take it or leave it. lol

    • Make America Golf Again and Keep America Golfing. The only time we have been safe in the past 4 years is when he was golfing. He only golfed about 1 entire year while in office, I just wish he had played more golf.

  2. First Comment from Australia , Sounds like a spoiled brat lashing out before he flies away to Russia

    • @Harry Butler Apparently history books say that Hitler committed suicide via cyanide but there was speculation that he and Eva Braun escaped Europe via submarine to the South Pole where they would have surely perished.
      Trump will no doubt be welcomed in someones lavish Floridian granny flat, house bound with an ankle collar. There he will hide until he dies penniless and senile. Then off to meet his buddy Satan and Sadam Hussain and Hitler and all the other aresholes!

    • Here in Western Australia we are pretty much back to normal. There has been no community transmissions here at all. Only covid cases have been from travellers interstate and overseas,and they had to quarantine for 2 weeks in a secure hotel. At the beginning of covid,everything was shut down,people did the right thing,and it worked. It amazes me that some Americans find it difficult to do the right thing,and then 70 MILLION voted for trump. Good luck mate,its got to get better,can’t possibly get worse…

    • Barr resembles one of your Cane toads, ugly and destructive.

    • Please don’t stop making noise over there about why this happened.. Media.. Etc.. We kind of need the international community to bring a huge chunk of our population back from an alternate reality right now.

    • I don’t think he will go to Russia I think he will go to prison

  3. Club Small Hands is getting back together for their outtro.


    • oh

    • @Pamela Mattox or a doj sting , on what day of the year do all politicians break the law?

    • @joshua traman Are you seriously asking if the original commenter on this YouTube video has something to hide?

    • @C Land yes, because Trump is shadier than a crack dealer trying to sell swatches on the side of a bus that just left nowhere heading to a man who launders Snicker bars in order to feed a pack of wild penguins. Shady, just shady Trump is

  5. It seems the lawsuits have been just distractions from what they are doing now in justice department and nsa

    • @joshua traman
      No one’s stopping them from taking the legal action. But when there’s no evidence of voter fraud found he still won’t accept defeat. His narcissistic behavior is both predictable and a danger to national security.

    • @codeSlob it is not him not accepting defeat, it is the American people will not accept a rigged election. Let the process go, let’s have the DOJ investigate irregularities, Trump really does not have to prove his case in court, anybody with the brain the size of an amoeba knows that there were no controls in place to prevent fraud with voter mail-ins in several states. Only crooks and thieves refuse to acknowledge this fact.

    Barr gave a blind eye to all things illegal and criminal!! Biden’s new AG gotta find a prison cell for this enabler!!

    • Yeah Barr hasn’t prosecuted any democrats for their crimes a blind eye for sure but wake up your selling out your own people

    • @timothy price sr You are either a Russian troll with little command of the English language or you never went to any institution of learning. Your post literally makes NO SENSE!

    • @Derek Ryan barr hasn’t prosecuted any Democrats, as there is ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to prosecute, you cannot prosecute based on the wims and demands of a dillusional POTUS based on his own projected self image. There must be charges you can actually prove!!! Go figure!!! FYI the United States of America is a Democratic Republic, not a wanna-be Dictatorship where citizens are imprisoned/murdered for simply independent thinking or expression. If that is the type of country in which you wish to be a citizen, may I suggest North Korea or Russia???

    • where are all the cells for all these crooks – I guess they will have to release al those in jail for Cannabis Crimes – that might make a few people happy and save us looking for new jail cells for all the Trump crooks – we are going to need a new name fr Trump Crooks –

    • @SherlockWho So why the SDNY is waiting on Trump the turd to be out of office to charge him ? It is because the other piece of shi.. call Barr is protecting the criminal. Can’t wait to see them in jail.

  8. Then he must be stripped of his position as Attorney General and all of his rights in continuing to pursue his career as a lawyer. Stripped of all his practices. Everything!!

      @adam therolf Really are you talking Dem proven or real proof. Could you give me a example of one so I can see. After RUSSIA and IMPEACHMENT Dems have o criticality.

    • @Debbie Sowell you must realize by now there is no attempt at stealing the election or are you just that stupid and deluded? the AP has the right to post the results as they come in and yes they can Officially announce their projected winner based on vote totals. you obviously dont know the first thing about elections. i’m sorry about how sad this country has become in the last 4.5 years so many people dont bother checking their facts or even do the most basic research before they start spouting their own deluded ramblings but what can i expect from a cult follower of trump.

    • @m s 4 years ago today, Obama already invited Trump to the white house for a visit. That’s the difference!

    • @adam therolf Really? No Attempt at STEALING THE ELECTION?? What do you call:
      Dead people voting
      People voting more than once
      People being coerced to vote against their principles
      People illegally in our country voting
      Postal workers back-dating Ballots
      Poll workers and Observers not being allowed to do their job or enter the buildings
      Votes being counted with no supervision
      And More
      You should be just as concerned as we are because it could happen to you and your candidate next time. You apparently didn’t even bother to “do the most basic research” to see what fraud has been found. Now who is the person doing the “deluded ramblings?”

    • @Lin He Obummer invited Trump to the WH because it is an American tradition to do so AFTER the election is OFFICIAL. The electoral college results hasn’t even been announced yet. You people are really jumping the gun here!

  9. And don’t forget he’s all about trying to get those last-minute donations, for re-counts, yah… that’s it… recounts.

    • @Steven Kies yes, he usually just files for bankruptcy so he gets out of paying off debts. I think he has filed for bankruptcy 3 or 4 times so far. THAT is the business man people voted for

    • @Marvin Navata to clarify… they aren’t his legal fees! They’re ours! The American people are paying for the integrity of out Republic! But hey tomato tomatoe right…? Lol!

    • Bill Barr wants to be tRumps lawyer let trump pay him not the tax payer .Congress need to Cut out Billy goat barrs money

  10. This is starting to look like the horror movie, when the monster is dead, but there are 20 minutes left to run.

    • @Grace Wright Where would I start… His criminal negligence to deal with the pandemic is in legal terms either “negligent homicide” or “involuntary manslaughter. The main responsibility of the US President is it to keep the American people safe. He chose to ignore the advice by scientists, thrown out the existing pandemic plan, and not just spread misinformation about the virus, but facilitated its spread with his packed rallies.
      What has been disclosed about his tax returns so far, points to tax evasion at best.
      I don’t want to get into his other crimes for which he is protected from prosecution by the corrupt judiciary under Barr, up until the time he leaves office.
      This “man” is a crook and a traitor who is selling out the nation.

    • @Real M So, in your demented mind, EVERYTHING Trump has done was associated with the works of fascism and ALL OF HUMANITY says so. Dude, you are clearly a SHEEPLE follower of the MSM. Or, you have a seriously deranged case of TDS.🤪

  11. He have plans to put troops in Pennsylvania as a means of threatening the community

  12. The inactivity of the senate to stop Trump, is proof enough to want the Georgia senate races to go blue!


  14. Bill Barr has always been Trump’s personal lawyer, today is not his first day on the job……

  15. What’s new there!!! Barr has NEVER been for law and order, full stop

    • @Molly Brown And you believe everything Trump says? Just asking.

    • @Molly Brown And of which have been put in place by the Trump administration! And are nothing but his bootlicking sycophants! You people have been dropped by a cheap con man!! And don’t you think that if all of these public servants thought that trump was bad for America. That their might be something to it?? Not saying they did. But that is what y’all say happened! And why just Trump? They never did it before!!!

    • @science wins “clean the swamp” only a working Theory; maybe! Trump is the “bad hombre” Democrats say he is Virginia giuffre worked at Trump Resorts after all, Trump worked with the FBI and the doj back in the 90s on that case from what I understand there was not only full cooperation but any assistance or service he could offer, to my understanding once you have become an FBI informant well, it’s kind of like feeding a dog they’ll keep coming back.
      Did high-level officials with previous positive experiences with Trump (that saw corruption and treason) in the interest of continuity of government “Shanghai” Trump into a presidency? I don’t know, it’s a Theory, a guess,, it would explain a lot, but at best a fuzzy hypothesis…. grain of salt type stuff.

    • @Molly Brown Sometimes things are exactly what they seem to be! No deep dark conspiracy theories! Just a pathological lying con man that fooled half the nation! Because he was WHITE and hated the 1st black president! It has been interesting! And I must say I respect you for not being a typical Trump supporter. Most would have called me every name in the book by now! And you did not go down that path! KUDOS!! BEST WISHES!!!

  16. I hope there’s a focus on Barr’s every move now. The same should be said of any moves in the military. It would be handy for trump not to do anything drastic in any way.

  17. No arguments from the republican reps that won seats in this “stolen” election. The senator votes are legit but only the presidential votes are bogus?? FOH

  18. We need a Nurenberg Tribunal for these cruds when Joe gets in office.

    • @G S whether Trump is a liar or not, his people believe him. And with regard of the election, go to Marco Rubio’s Twitter, 70 percent of republicans believe the election was not free and fair. Biden is not getting in the White House when so many people do not believe the results of the election, that problem is for Biden to deal with, and not Trump. If the Democrats had won without mail-in ballots we would not be here. You folks, have a big problem and the country cannot be united when half the people believe the election was stolen, a democracy is based on the losing side believing the election results. Trump will never hand over power as long as him and his people believe it was stolen, so you folks have a lot of selling to do before Biden even thinks about the White House.

    • @Brandi C Trump has the Support of the American people and pretty much every Republican controlled institution. He is not finished by any means.

    • @Callie Smith you are correct, Joe Biden’s career is marked by theft. From his illicit enrichment as a career politician to stealing the election. People like Biden belong in jail and not the White House and it would not surprise that is where he is heading next.

      We already have laws to prevent this. Laws mean nothing with corrupt, lawless lackeys in our highest government offices and roles breathlessly “interpreting” those laws in favor of a lawless fascist wanna be dictator.
      This is an attempted coup and it may well work. Hence tRump making a play for control of the military by firing Esper to install an obedient and also lawless servant in the role- like Barr, like DeJoy, like all the others.

    • When we let him in with his Russian tricks in 2016, we got invaded. We must defend America some how.

    • The government needs to make an example out of Trump so that one who’s actually competent will at least think twice next time before attempting to be a dictator.

    • Laws can only go so far when you have politics and corruption influencing it.

    • @Stef Alexandra if it’s as bad as you say to the point that 3+ states rigged it, then this will be the last election. No one will have faith in democracy and we’ll be a dictatorship.
