  1. Trump is selling his cult _Trump Brand Imitation Kool-Aid_ – Nine out of ten cultists can’t taste the difference.

    1. Bloody red country C is in the background. Democrats and Republicans (RINO!) In the United States have received huge bribes from Dominion and Smart Matec to plan the biggest fraudulent elections of the century. It is a crisis of democracy and a blasphemy to God. Country C has Taiwan / Japan (Senkaku Islands / Okinawa) as its territory and is ready to justify the invasion of Hong Kong / Tibet / Wiggle / South Mongolia / to overthrow the anti-C country Trump administration. I learned of the fact that I planned and implemented it. US election system fraudulent voting The number one cause of fraudulent elections is that they cannot be strict. Whether illegal immigrants or dead humans, you can vote as many times as you like, and even observers are fooled by bribes and intimidation. This is the collapse of the Democratic Parliament. A unified system is essential in all states. Electoral fraud cannot be prevented without building a strict US resident registration system!!!!

    1. @Fact checker actually, the whole, “if people don’t agree with me, then…”, Is very much a Trump supporter thing, not to mention a Trump thing. It’s pretty easy to say, at this point, if folks still support Trump after all the chronic lying and Everything Else, which is a substantial amount of horror, then yeah, there is something wrong with therm. Not the same thing across the boards, but something, for certain. For example, some are immeasurably gullible, some are devastatingly stupid, some prefer corruption and getting their way whatever the cost, and others don’t really care the quality of the man in office and what happens, as long as there’s an “R” in front of their name. There’s smaller subsets and categories, but the forementioned covers the vast majority. No one’s happy about saying that, or it being the case. But how else do you rationalize such wreckless wretchedness? This is beyond political opinion, this is about character and quality, or lack there of. Politics be danmed, the guy is and will go down in history as one of the U.S.’s most atrocious and destructive people to ever exist. The world knows it. The world.

    2. @adam therolf NOPE GOOGLE CENSORED ME FOR A POST EARLIER, I think they wanted me down for the day, or to shut up for the hearings, that’s all. They know I will obey if I realize what it is, and don’t do it on my other account all day they will give my main account back. At the end of the day, a handful of times, and both hearings.

      It’s the only thing they know they can leash me with. Otherwise, I disappear and pop up incognito.

  2. That trump has put giuliani as the face of his legal campaign shows this isn’t about overturning the election results but squeezing more money from his base for his so-called legal defense fund

    1. How much goes into the defense team? I believe 60% of the money his base sends,is for campaign funds. Idk.

    1. If he tries to abscond it’ll be Brazil. It won’t be easy with Secret Service until he gets to jail. I’m really hoping they don’t let him out of DC. He’s going to sell national security secrets. I think that’s part of the defense Dept and Pentagon shake ups. That the attempt to attack Iran and bringing troops home against all the military recommendations.

    1. @ultonian63 no that not true he divorce his cousin and married his sister because his cousin cheated on him with his brother

    2. @Trump 2024 could be the nicest words a trumpanze has ever said to me, but I am not a cultist unless being a realist is cultish!

  3. Now that Trump is using Rudy it’s over, Rudy makes noise he doesn’t practice law anymore. IDK why anyone other than OANN that covers him, he’s a joke.

    1. @Sergeant Preston OAN is a network, not just, ‘to the right of Fox,’ but completely off the loony scale…………

    2. Last night, as reported by CNN, there was quite the to-do in the oval office. tRumps lawyers told him that there was no proof and the system that counted the vote, that supposedly changed them to democratic, was a conspiracy theory that had no basis in fact. TRudy blew up at them, told them thete was proof and that it wasn’t a conspiracy theory. So tRump dismissed his lawyers and gave the cases to tRudy. And he’s such an imbecil that we might as well say it’s over.

    1. Trump’s lawyers are also taking the risk of being disbarred. It’s one thing to lie on TV all day… but lying to a judge in court is an entirely different matter.

    2. I AIN GOT NOOO MONEY HONEY , HIT THE ROAD DONALD AND DONT CHA COME BACK NO MORE, NO MORE NO MORE NO MORE EVEN RAY CAN SEE THAT.

    1. @Trump 2024 Even when someone names his crimes, you wouldn’t believe it anyway…if DT did a horrendous act to your family right in front of you…you’d still make an excuse for him, so why bother.

    1. @Faith Hope Research so far:
      Fact 1, 11,695,711 Americans have contracted the LoserTrump Virus!
      Fact 2, 254,255 Americans have died from the Loser Trump Virus!
      You are a Handmaid of Loser Trump, I presume!

    2. @e m thomson Fact 1, 11,695,711 Americans have contracted the LoserTrump Virus!
      Fact 2, 254,255 Americans have died from the Loser Trump Virus!

  4. Rudi, tRump’s court jester is running his legal circus. The last gasps of stupidity and desperation for this administration.

    1. @Jarry Sciligo Research for yourself dont just believe what the media is saying. You’ll be astonished how media censors the truth… Open your eyes a d you’ll see the truth. Check the blaze and Right side broadcast and ntd. What they are broadcasting is not just the tip of the iceberg. Research about socialism as well. And new world order. Find out for yourself

    2. FOUR YEARS OF THE CLOWN ANTHEM PLAYING IN THE BACKGROUND. I FEEL LIKE WE’VE BEEN LIVING WITH A MENTALLY UNSTABLE PARENT FOR 4 YEARS. WE’VE BEEN NEGLECTED ABUSED CHEATED THREATENED LIED TO DISRESPECTED FRIGHTENED AND IGNORED; BUT SO HAS EVERYONE WHO WORKED FOR THAT LUNATIC. YIKES WHAT A NIGHTMARE!!

  5. It’s astonishing that Trump’s supporters are still allowing themselves to be strung along by these clowns.

  6. The really jarring thing is that, over here in England, even falsely backdating a letter into court can get you disbarred….

  7. This is how an imploding ex “president” looks like. And those who support his delusions still believe they can expect financial gain from him?

    1. He is begging for money! Interesting to know that people have money to throw away on a losing cause….. there are staving children in America!

  8. Trump wanted a second term. Trump didn’t get a second term. So! Trump is burning down the house for the next administration. ÷[

    1. @Kittle Dittles It’s all over but the cryin’. Oh wait. Trumps tears are running like the 3 year old he is. Time for a grown-up in the White House. Lawyers know it and that’s why they’re leaving.

    2. @Kittle Dittles since you’re handing out educational tips thanks, but stop forgetting about yourself. ÷)

    1. we used to have a law colloquially called “the fairness doctrine” that used to regulate political reporting
      ronald reagan did away with it knowing that it would allow right-leaning media companies to lie with impunity, and so that republicans could cry “fake news” at any accurate reporting they don’t like

    1. @andrew mueller treason, but I guess if you commit it too then it’s not a crime. You need to get over it and accept being a looser.

    2. @Free Thinker Perfect name for you, now I know you are a good person. Treason is used as a term of war, last I checked Trump ended the wars, that was why he got nominated 4 times for the Nobel peace prize… and he was the only candidate in history that met all the rules, Obama got one didn’t do anything and two weeks later he carpet bombed the Middle East. Not nice! So you say free thinking and free Speech is an act of Treason have the rules changed?

    3. IT WOULD GIVE ME GREAT PLEASURE TO WATCH THE ENTIRE CLOWN SHOW PILING OUT OF A D.O.C. VAN MARCHING INTO A FEDERAL PEN FOR SOME LONG DAYS OF RECKONING. AFTER THAT GOD WILL JUDGE EACH ONE ACCORDING TO WHAT THEY DID OR DIDN’T DO TO PROTECT THIS COUNTRY.

    4. @andrew mueller WHERE DO WE BEGIN?! TAX EVASION
      KIDNAPPING
      INCITING VIOLENCE
      PERJURY
      BRIBERY
      EXTORTION
      NEGLECT OF DUTY
      MANSLAUGHTER…I COULD GO ON AND ON. HE MAY NOT HAVE LEFT HIS PRINTS ON ALL OF THESE VIOLATIONS HE DEFINITELY SET THE TONE FOR A NATIONAL DECLINE. WE ALL LOOK BAD AND FEEL BAD. TIME FOR A CHANGE.

    5. @loudboy317 OMGOODNESS! MY LIST DIDN’T HAVE ANY OF THESE. IT WAS GETTING TOO LONG SO I JUST…MAN THIS DUDE SHOULD BE LOCKED UP FOREVER.
