  1. Start holding people accountable who ignore House subpoenas, jail them and put them in general population.

      @Miles North WRONG, it has to start in the House of Representatives, The Senate is the Jury, not the Prosecuter.

    • @Cornelius Vath – Drumpf has admitted to colluding with Ukraine to influence an election. His campaign also colluded with Russia (“If it’s what you say I love it” – Don Jr.). The Mueller Report also lists nearly a dozen instances of Obstruction. There is also now bank and tax records that indicate He committed fraud. Drumpf’s repeated denials (and your parroting them) doesn’t change the facts. And they are not holding a vote to impeach. they are voting on what the process of the next phase of the investigations will be. And, of course, republicans, who have been constantly crying for that vote, now say they don’t want one. Just like all their cries to “make it public” will change to “it should be classified” when the facts start coming out.

    • @Dwayne Shaw If there were a crime, Dems would have happily impeached by now. But they have nothing but the BS they keep feeding you gullible tards. It’s not going to get them in power, Trump will still be president in 2024 and will never be charged with any crimes. Watch and learn children.

    • Tattersall: Impeachment origination source has nothing to do with this! The point, simpleton, is that the GOP Senate possesses the same subpoena power that they can use at any time for any reason (it doesn’t have to be regarding impeachment). You don’t the rules, sugar plum.

    • @Miles North All irrelevant anyway. Trump will still be president, and you will still be screaming at each other in here, come 2024.

  2. Trump is the BIGGEST leaker and his own worst enemy.

    • @William Bailey Correct and accurate parody. Required to show Republicans, that We are not Morons, and can actually break Donny bone spurs ” Secret Moronice Code” ( what an absolute insult to the American people).

    • comic ndn and he is OUR worst enemy

    • If you have any evidence of that, you should tell the Do-Nothing Democrats. They claim to be trying to impeach him, they just don’t have anything they can use for justification.

  3. That’s hilarious coming from a Traitor like Trump, who praises our adversaries like Putin and Kim Jung Un, and attacks our Generals and intelligence agencies who have sworn an oath to protect this country.

  4. It is him America should’nt trust!

    Leaks … nothing has leaked more than the White House. Trust? No one has lied more than the President himself. He has no business criticizing anyone for leaks or dishonesty. Not informing Congress is so much more a reflection on him than the Democrats. Mark my words …. he’s going to eat this.

    I know he’s trying to make it look like he’s tough and brave, but the only way he can do this is to get someone else to do his fighting while he sits thousands of miles away. Such a phoney!!


    • You’re obviously no gullible fool

    • Cornelius Vath, for a person who claims to be intelligent, you’re not using any of it. The mainstream media isn’t that good, but when Trump or his regime, make the statements they do, on camera, intelligent people don’t need any mainstream media pundit to tell them. Its funny how quoting Trump or his crony’s is somehow mainstream media BS.

    • Cornelius Vath Trump is arguing in court, to become a dictator. So you support a dictatorship.

      Ford LTD we are a constitutional republic NOT a democracy the democrat party is no more it’s been overthrown by socialists Marxists communists and now Islamic jihads!

  7. The Trump talks like that, because his base like hefty statements.
    Trump doesn’t care about the political consequences

  8. lock him up was momentous

  9. Traitor Trump projecting his own disloyal behavior onto others, as usual.

  10. A “Normal’ president should be a “Normal’ person.

    • @Ken Fields like bill Clinton in the Epstein mansion on Lolita island

    • @Genghis Smith We have plenty because we go straight to the source for our News then compare to MSM. Trump rally Friday watch it you’ll be glad you did

    • @sharon olsen Trump took a million dollars and turned it to several billions, built the most beautiful Buildings in the world, wrote 12 high selling books, adored by Millions of people. He isn’t normal, but highly successful.

    • Normando Binkier | October 29, 2019 at 10:38 AM | Reply

      What is a normal president? What is a normal person?

  11. He leaks orange vile 24/7. And anything he accuses others of doing is exactly what he does.

  12. No, it’s going fine, remember they have the redacted papers from Mueller’s probe ordered to be given to them by the judge. 😊💙

    • @scott chadwick Scott this is exhausting and I want to retire for the night so this will be my last text. The generals did not elect Trump. Once he was elected they had to serve him and do their best to advise him and keep him in check but that doesn’t mean he is a good person who never did an immoral thing in his life. John Kelly said he had to constantly tell him that what he wanted to do was illegal and that is why they didn’t get along, He wasn’t wiretapped. That was a debunked conspiracy theory that existed only his own deluded mind. He came into office with a personal phone and was warned by his intelligence service that it wasn’t secure. He ignored them because he wasn’t comfortable with change. He also ignored their warning about Flynn being under investigation.

      Comey broke FBI protocol when he publicly announced two weeks before the election that he was reopening an investigation into Hilary’s emails. You aren’t supposed to do that during an election. It turned out to be a nothing burger because he was looking into someone else who had sent her emails but it cost her the election. So I think that given that he helped Trump get elected that is ironic.

      According to the fact checkers at the Washington Post Trump has now passed the 14,000 mark for the number of lies he has told since taking office. He is the worst president the U.S. has ever had.

    • @DDKaraokeOutlaw would you go before a congressional hearing with out a lawyer? What would you call that? Besides a perjury trap. And now mullers caught in perjury himself

    • @Cathy Allen no dear it’s called your civil rights take a civic class so your not so stupid

  13. Test to determine Unable Genius Status

    1. Undermine institutions, judiciary, & checks on power
    2. Discredit/besmirch the media by spinning it as “fake”, biased, etc
    3. Label opposition as traitors, “deep state”
    4. Create labels for processes which attempt to check your power or hold you accountable: witch hunt, hoax, etc
    5. Spread & feed nonsensical conspiracy theories.
    6. Deflection & liberal use of “whataboutism”
    7. Lie, lie, lie. And lie some more
    8. Deny, deny, deny And deny some more
    9. Obstruct & refuse to cooperate with any attempts at holding you accountable
    10. Divide the electorate. Sow division, create an “us vs them” narrative
    11. Scapegoating: blame others for everything: other parties, other people, other countries. As long as you can assign blame, you can be the hero
    12. Provide an alternate reality.

  14. Most leaks come from his White House 🤦🏽‍♂️

  15. Funny how the leaks started when he drained the swamp.

  16. I just can’t get over how this imbecile got put in the White House.

    • @buddhastaxi666 when a company buys back shares they usually go up in price. Which helps out peoples 401 retirement plans. You folks just don’t want things to be better than they have been in fifty years.

    • Because imbeciles like you were outvoted by smart people. And it will happen again in 2020.

    • We the people voted for Trump, and will do it again…

    He’s the one that leaks like a sieve.

    • How does he leak? He is the only one that can declass information.

    • simple.There is a process. Trump is on record leaking detramental information lol.

    • Really…your proof?…pmsnbc is not actually proof of anything FYI

    • It’s called transparency, dimwit. Imagine being as stupid as you and wanting to remain in the dark. This President gives constant status updates, on numerous topics, via Twitter and lawn press conferences…imagine that! Ovomit would mention 1 topic and take a couple of questions before scurrying off.

    • It has been reported that he actually notified Putin first. “All roads…”

  18. Putin’s puppet, DJT = clear and present national security threat.

  19. He has a history of blurting secrets out when he is bragging.

    • Like what and when exactly?

    • How about telling the press that it was Israel secret service that gave the US information. Then telling the Russians in the Oval Office that he has fired his own FBI official to ease the pressure from the Russian stuff. How about trying to get a military specialist to explain to the press how his “ wall “ is going to be a “ smart” wall ie (technology that would be useful to our enemies) the specialist has to say “ I don’t think that would be a good idea “ how’s that for a start ?

  20. “Leaks like he’s never seen before”
    Hold up…what other Government job has Trump had before that he would know that to be fact??
