  1. Donald is in Debt up to his eyeballs. He won’t concede defeat because this is a money making scheme. He is asking for donations to help contest the outcome, but all those donations will go directly into his China bank account in order to pay off his debts when he’s out of office. Those dumb enough to donate to him right now are wasting their money. He will ride this contesting of the vote thing until the money runs dry.

    • Milking his clueless base will be his new job until he goes to jail, loose his properties and file bankruptcy.

    • He takes their money and runs out of the country. Sounds like a win-win

    • @Hey Duggee You should take a look at the declassified notes from the FBI. These are hand written notes from James Comey, Andrew McCabe and Peter Strock to name a few. They range from July 2016 to August 2017, and these notes are handwritten summer typed up and then there are some text messages and emails as well. But these messages say very early on it all the way through they know Trump has no relationship with anybody in Russia. Furthermore they clearly say, and if you watched the hearing yesterday with Andrew McCabe he admitted this so you can watch Andrew McCabe discuss this, that the Clintons actually had relationships with the Russians, and the sub source of the dossier who the Clintons paid was a Russian agent. And then if you see the report that just came out last month on Biden, it details the Biden family getting millions from Russia. Now I’m not telling you to look at a different news source for believe me, I’m telling you to look at the FBI’s declassified notes. And homeland security report. In addition these notes also say that the Russia collusion with Trump began with the Clinton campaign in an attempt to discredit him. I’m just telling you this because when you talk about Trump having his money in rubles you sound really ignorant

    • @Prickly Pear Or maybe that the election has been certified yet and states are doing a complete and full audit because of widespread voter fraud. Kind a hard to say you have a president elect when no secretary of state has certified the votes and there’s a demand by the legislature to do a complete audit because of all of the fraud. That might be one of the reasons why they’re not calling Biden president elect, because he is not president elect. How are system works is the election have to be certified that the electors are chosen and then the electors vote and that’s when he becomes president elect, step one hasn’t even been completed yet because no secretary of state is going to certify votes which are so fraudulent.

  2. Trump on America: If I can’t have her, no one can.

    • Yes! I have made comparisons with the jilted, or soon to be jilted boyfriend.

      When Trump claimed to have Covid it was like the desperate girlfriend who pretends she’s pregnant to stop the guy from leaving.

    • Exactly what I was thinking. The guy that kills the whole family because his wife try’s to leave him.

    • @Laura L
      Bill Maher: Trump is the ex husband who kills his family on Christmas Eve. He’s O.J., and he doesn’t like seeing America driving around with Ron Goldman.

    It’s no wonder Trump doesn’t like sharks, he has been jumping them for years.

    Trump has been the worst president ever.

      He’s also been the worst person and worst president ever

    • you dont need to know my name | November 11, 2020 at 9:17 PM | Reply

      They say Buchanan’s the worst for setting the stage for the civil war but you gotta admit international alienation, expansion of racial inequality, an out of hand laissez-faire capitalist economy, a neglected pandemic, and the installment of loyalists to the Pentagon 2 months before inauguration under Trump is overkill compared to that

    • Breaking Now !!! Trump has contacted ” Two Men & Truck” a moving company in Tulsa to help him pack his bags back to Florida. 👍

    tRump will have his own show on FauxNoise, guaranteed.

    • He can not be allowed to have a political future, and if he has a public future at all that would be a serious stain on the nation. He’s in the middle of a coup and has recklessly endangered all of you and you’re shucking and jiving.

      @Traitor Trump Until tRump runs again in 2024. He’ll Monster the Elections. God Help Us.

      @Erick Borling Huh? This is a reasonable speculation, Erick. And whom do you suppose is going to “dis-allow” tRump to do what he wants? It’s still a free country (for now.)

      Until they get bored of him trying to steal the network out from under them and he gets yet another one of his endless pink slips. He Has No More Relevancy. After January, he’s Yesterday’s news. In Twenty years he’ll be that fake reality fool who believed he was king of the world for a moment when he broke into the White House and was aiming to squat there forever with help from his Russian boss until he finally got thrown out for trespassing by the American People.

      @Tomorrow will be deleted blocked or silenced You’re seriously deluded, Pal. Half the country is CRAZY about tRump! You did see the rallies and street and boat parades, didn’t you? No one made showings like that for Joe. tRumps not going away, he will have his own media presence, and it will be huuuge. Be afraid. Be very afraid. “He’ll be baaaack…”

  7. A reality TV star who can’t face reality. Sad.

    • Sad, but fitting.

    • Ironic too

    • Not to play the “reality tv bad” card, but…reality tv bad.
      Not to say it isn’t entertaining, I watched a bit myself, but that could be part of the problem.
      It is scripted television, like all other television, but the cinema vérité presentation has warped some folks perception of reality.
      That that “everything turned up to eleven” style is real life.
      That the crude, over the top personalities truly reflect those of reality, which they don’t.
      Rather, they didn’t.
      Reality television has been around almost twenty years now. A lifetime for some. People identify with those characters, and so they elected one as president.
      Of course Trump, the reality television star cannot face reality, because he isn’t real.
      He exists, yes, but this person he presents himself as is just a character.
      From “reality,” not reality.
      If that makes sense.

      (Just the way I see things though.)

    • Well spoken.

  8. Let his base feed him $$. He’ll love them for that (only).

  9. Body Bag Donnie is attempting to remain revelant! LOL!

  10. Trump is dragging this out to fundraise off it. Look at his campaign website. He’s begging for donations for his “legal defense fund.” He will drag this out as long as he can. He’s a grifter. This is what a grifter does. It’s always all about the money for Trump the schlump. He doesn’t care about the American people or our Democracy. He’s an insane clown. The Electoral College will meet on December 14 and it will elect Biden president.

    • Did you see that 60% of the money goes to his debt. People give money for ‘legal defense’ and he puts in the very fine print this message. Grifters to the end.

  12. Drump and his followers are drama queens and crisis junkies.

    I think trumps should go to prison. Not tv

  14. Looking forward to the inaugural celebration 🎉🎉🎊🎊🎊🎊🎈🎈🎈🎈🎈💖💖💖💖💖

  15. When Boris Johnson calls trump EX PRESIDENT! 😘🤣

  16. “Trump! You’re Fired!” Cry all you want you, Investigate all you want, sue all you want! Nothing will change the fact that you lost and you lost big time!!! What a sad little loser!!


  17. This is a brilliant analysis of Trump and society in general. Unfortunately, this is not reality tv. It’s actual REALITY, and Trump’s refusal to admit his defeat and agree to a peaceful transfer of power is becoming a national security issue, increasing with every day that passes.

  18. That usually kills any show, the more outrages the more people loose interest and it seems to happen in the last 1or 2 seasons

  19. That Housewives crap is so congruent with Trump and his supporters

  20. Donald Trump lost bigly in a free and fair election.
