  1. Should I believe Ambassador Bill Taylor, a West Point grad, and Vietnam veteran who has served this country honorably his entire adult life, or should I believe a draft dodging pathological liar who brags about falling in love with dictators and tyrants? Hmmmm😞

  2. I would love for Obama to mock Trump right now

    • *Republicans and Trump’s Pro Life, Christian 35% base are showing the world* THEY would definitely feel OK IF Mr Trump actually shot & killed an innocent stranger on 5th Avenue New York/ OR in the WH Rose Garden. Mick *CrimesR-Us* Mulvaney would say, “It happens all the time… Get Over It” !!! (♡♡♡$$$ 😍 Let’s do T-shirts!!!)

    • @Diana, I agree!

    • Relax, we know that’s not what he really meant. He’s probably being sarcastic because he does own property on 5th ave and he knows nobody really wants to dig up any info on how he acquired it. Interestingly enough, everybody else keeps shooting themselves in the foot, instead. I’ll bet he’s been working undercover for decades!

    • Obama wouldn’t wanna waste any kind of clout. And besides, who like the smell of 💩💩??@RealDonaldPutinTrump.
      Cell block swamp, is waiting for you (right next to all 23 ppl that all worked for him are there)=Cohen/Manafort/Papadopoulos to name a few.

  3. Ah, the classic old racist white dude parade. It’s so embarrassing to know that this many white people are this corrupt. If I didn’t know better I’d say they were just delusional, but they clearly know what they’re doing.

    • @kordulus I’m white myself, hence why it is so embarrassing. …sensitive much?

    • @kordulus Well…you certainly don’t see any Black and Brown people. Look at all the pics and videos of any trump gathering.. There are few, if any, POC included. All this graft, collusion, corruption, witness tampering, obstruction, and outright lying are being committed by white men in suits. If Obama had done 1/100000000th of what trump has done, he’d been gone the first 6 months. The same people marching and storming secure facilities would be screaming bloody murder and impeachment. They are hypocritical white racists in suits… no jack boots or Brown shirts. . .

    • They’re brain washed to the point of Zombies/Puppetism. Feel ashamed of how low have the American dream has become.

      this group of peope is a small group of people , please remember that there are a whole of white males that are also victimized by morons like this ? Remove Trump.

  4. They need to stop drinking the orange koolaid.
    Matt Gaetz needs to take a Midol and stf up. He is a traitor as is Devin Nunes.

    • Actually, according to what I read, Pelosi has so much dirt of Pence, that Pence will resign at the same time as Trump. Pelosi will offer them both immunity to criminal fraudulent charges.
      Trump would not be able to resist when Pelosi offers Trump to keep all of his assets…

    • I’m only repeating what Scaramuchi said on Cuomo’s show. Scaramuchi makes a good point that if Trump feels threaten that he is going to lose all his money, he’ll take the fastest exit out. And Pelosi knows this. So she’ll have a bargain for Trump when that happens.

      We know what people did to traitors a long time ago. Line them up against a wall in front of a firing squad.

    • Actually, anyone who supports this behind the closed door racket of an investigation is the actual traitor. Those men you mentioned are American Heroes, they’re the ones standing up against the corrupt media and the Crooked politicians who have been running our country from one president to the next in exactly the same way.

      Trump, love them or hate them is the first decent president we’ve had in my generation. He’s his own man, and does what’s best for our country.

      Case and point, Donald Trump is the only one that had the balls to try to stop illegal immigration. Donald Trump is the only one who’s had the balls to stand against Communist China. And, Donald Trump is the only one that had the balls to fight fight back against the left’s attempts to turn our country into a socialist s*******.

  5. when you cant argue the facts create a distraction

  6. Normally when they marsh they are wearing white pointed hoods and burning crosses.

  7. Wow, I’ve never seen the WALK OF SHAME on stairs before. 🤣

  8. Those Republicans that went over to interfere with the process. Are are part of Trumps conspiracy. Y would they brake the rules . Trump ordered them

    They should have been arrested for obstructing justice.

    Call or write your Congress men and women let them know how you feel about this I have . Donald Trump is a clear and present danger

  11. Of course it’s an act of desperation. Its pathetic.

  12. Your GOP criminals!!!

  13. He threatened the Ukrainian leader with his bone spurs.

  14. Yeah. Embarrassing and juvenile

  15. Gaetz and his mob should have been arrested

  16. It’s not just Trump who is a traitor to this country; every Republican who enables him deserves to be called a traitor. Let’s finally call them for what they are.

    • The truth is coming, and it’s not what you think it is.

    • Hugh MacDonald | October 24, 2019 at 9:59 AM | Reply

      @JG I think you may be right. Trump didn’t hold up the financial assistance to Ukraine in order get information on Biden. That is a smokescreen. He did it on the orders of his Russian controllers.

    • Yes, Hugh. Putin and Trump attended the same private school together when they were in their teens. The connection is there. I’m betting that the property deals that Trump got from Putin in the 80’s can be traced back to this connection. They had numerous meetings over the years long before he was president. It’s no wonder Melania was actually a gift from Russia, so to speak, if you know what I mean!

  17. Trump uses the name calling as a way to intimidate and bully others.

  18. Everyone of those gop puppets that took part in that “protest” are culpable to obstruction of justice just as much as #TammanyTrump , Giulliani, Pompeo and every other lever of power who facilitated this miscarriage of diplomatic blackmail in Ukraine.

  19. 😂 “What a boring looking group by the way” 😂
