    Trump is such a coward, he can’t even do it face to face.

    Well, Esper you’ll soon get revenge because you’re already vindicated, When Don gets his wakeup call and finally realize he’s Fired !

  3. When you work for Putin, these acts aren’t hard to do.

  4. This is extremely dangerous. It screams of dictatorship

    • @Chac Schao u rather those guys be are enemies what do you want to do fight them ?

    • Clayton Gunter | November 10, 2020 at 2:29 PM | Reply

      It screamed dictatorship 2 months into his term as I said back then! He is now a clear threat to America and must be put down NOW! If we wait? America and Democracy loses! How much clearer does it have to be?

    • @Clayton Gunter he wasn’t a huge threat before the pandemic when the economy was booming now he’s the worst guy known to mankind

      @Travis Elkins The US “economy” was never “booming,” every last apparatuses of the UNITED STATES is based on banks “underwriting” debt vis-à-vis “annuities” and those very same banks being fiduciarily underwritten by the Bank of all banks: the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland. Your entire “economy” is a lie and the politicians are too cowardly and stupid to tell you that you are a slave; no one knows how “economies” work, least of all: Donald Drumpf.

    • @Hermeneutic mendicancy your right.. Although I was just saying that was the word that was going around that Donald trump had the economy booming and from that hes now a person everybody hates but don’t even know him never met him either choice they give this year is a shame, illusion of power for the people blinded its all a plan there’s many individual’s in this world that could be a better president

  5. Some body has to disabled those nuclear codes!!! “WE” Still have a not job in the white house!!!

    • They should fill the “Football” with McNuggets…

    It’s like playing chess with a pigeon. He knocks over the pieces, craps all over the board and then struts around like he won.

  7. The US military should watch Trump closely, else the US is in real danger. He will take the whole of US with him.

      @Alex MacKenzie okay kid

      @Warren Crawley i haven’t been a kid for several decades you Muppet

    • You people have lost it. Lmao

    • @William H Music 2020 military have sworn an oath to our constitution and nation. Not any one man. We are not a cult nation. As for your ignorance about political parties. They too are not a cult until now with trumpism. Just like the nation I would assume the military are divided about trump. He isn’t an honorable man, has no integrity or love of country because he’s a malignant narcissist who only cares about his ego and money.

    • Alex MacKenzie | November 10, 2020 at 8:30 PM | Reply

      @Jane Morasas we knew he wasn’t gonna go quietly but sabotaging America’s ability to defend itself nobody saw coming cos he’s an American citizen and you just don’t do that no matter how annoyed you are

  8. This is the time we need to be the most worried about trump. He’s going to actively try to destroy the country. We collectively told him NO for the first time in his life. He’s not going to go gracefully….

    • @Joe P what about someone that dosent support either of these crooks.

    • @Maharajji NKB
      Barr does not call an election. That was totally inappropriate, he just did what he’s accusing media of. He is not trumps personal attorney. That statement says plenty. Talk about dems cheating…Barr needs to be disbarred before he re-elects a commie pig.
      And BTW did you pay attention to SCOTUS today? It’s looking like yet another fail in donnys court room.

    • @Todd “then” lol!

      @Todd then you’re blind

      Speaker Pelosi might want to start drafting articles of impeachment again

  9. Trump Hope’s to put in place a goon to do Trump vile will on Americans and our National Defense.

  10. I like the part where t’rump can’t deal with being fired himself so being the baby that he is, fired someone who already resigned to cope. 😂🤣

    • 😂 😂 😂

    • He is planning a coup with the help of Barr and McConnell

    • No way, he will be sworn in, watch the fun you fool

    • Co-Pastor Cruz | November 10, 2020 at 1:47 PM | Reply

      May you be right and everything is about a tantrum, if not, we should be worry about all the changes he is doing, this can signal he is moving pieces like a chess game and replacing it with people that he can trust for a military coup.

      His game pieces; Christopher Miller (Defense Secretary), Amy Coney Barrett (Supreme Court), William Barr (States Attorney General)

      A psychopath like Trump will do anything he could to stay in power, making irreparable damage to our country in his way out.

    • oh

  11. Micheal Cohen told everyone what trump would do if he lost a year ago.

      If there is one person on earth who can tell you exactly what trump is planning its Michael Cohen. He carried out every single dirty deal trump did, and knows trump’s next move before trump himself knows it

    • Warren Shiflett | November 10, 2020 at 6:15 PM | Reply

      @Kurt Tuchscherer Everyone with a brain cell agrees with you because it makes logical sense. So naturally, that excludes tRump supporters. They believe Cohen is a liar. tRump supporters would definitely drink the kool-aid.

    • @Jamie Murray Tik Tok..

    • @Warren Shiflett What’s even better: HE DIED OF COVID-19!!! I’m not even kidding! Seriously, the guy’s name is David Andahl – died of covid-19 on Oct 5 – elected to the House of Representatives! You can’t make this $hit up! Thankfully with tRump around you don’t have to – the jokes write themselves!

  12. When the outgoing Secretary of War AKA Secretary of Defense says “God help us”

    You might have a dictator.

      @Nikolaos Konstantinou stool pigeons are the easiest to lead with a long line of “carrots” We’re in for a rough ride for the next 70 days. Come on Pelosi. Now’s the time for another impeachment and time his hands in desperate defense. Simultaneously use any legal obstacle and confront from every angle and side to divert his attn and keep him too flustered to function. He will implode. 45 and the GOP have and are still doing this very strategy on our country. We the people of the US of A and our country CAN withstand this just as easily as it just being one-sided. It’s broke so let’s strap up and fix it however this may present itself. PEOPLE stay home and off the streets…let’s keep it an elected govt politicians battle to fight on Capital Hill. Please, in Heaven’s name NO CRAP FROM EITHER SIDE IN THE STREETS. Let’s show this planet that demo-crazy can withstand the heat and pressure of time. Coal in the ground does become a beautiful Diamond. Call and write and email officials at every level of govt. Do so collectively at levels they simply cannot ignore, filibuster, back burner or……take another dang paid recess. And if they collapse, let them resign in disgrace for their frailty. Everybody can do a few things and that adds up to several hundred of millions of peaceful actions. May the election motivation give each of us our strength… Then pray like your life depended on it.

      I close saying again no violence and street action.

    • @William H Music 2020 oh no… what will we ever do… dickhead.

    • @JSP-147 If you’re looking to pop off a civil war, that would be one way to do it.

    • @Big Earl I don’t think trumpy’s going to get a pardon the way Nixon did, though, I suspect he’ll be made irrelevant by going to jail for the rest of his life.

    • @Mike B I don’t think they’ll imprison him. They may put him on type of house arrest that won’t really be house arrest.

  13. Everything he does is a destructive act, he hates this country.

  14. They seem to be attempting to overthrow the Government… not as far fetched as it sounds either.

  15. The Manchurian candidate is doing what he is supposed to be doing. Taking down the USA from within.

  16. Scorched earth big time by a total loser who can’t stand himself.

  17. Trump is like a psychotic disgruntled ex to America. “If I can’t have you nobody can.” Scary.

  18. He’s not leaving quietly. He wants to burn it all down on his way out. Be ready, America.

  19. He’s doing everything he can to put America in danger it really is treason now

  20. Trump needs to be removed for being “clear and present danger” to democracy!
