      @Anti Socialite but a law would end the possibility of another OLC GUIDELINE. Yeah it could end with an executive order and a lawful AG but we really need to make sure nothing like it comes back

    • I believe Trump ran for office in 2016 because he saw it as a way to stay out of jail. And now…4 yrs later….. he didnt get his way….we have caught on to his bs… he’s going to lose his precious immunity…hes freaking out because he has nowhere else to hide….I do hope he has to own up to his wrongdoings once WE drag his butt out of OUR White House. I believe WE, the American people, need to step up and make politicians know they work for US. Trump has cared nothing about the people of America…we are just pawns to him. It’s time we stand up….do our part…legally…and call Check Mate.

    • @Taurus Da Bull
      In office less than a full term?

      @Ronda he’s loosing everything in this country….. The only way he gets Trump tower moscow is if he can deliver a 2nd civil war in America…. There needs to be an emergency invoking of the 25th amendment

  2. It’s Treasonous!!! And what’s crazy is that people with authority and power to do something about it is sitting quiet !!!!!! Trump and is Lackeys are taking advantage of y’all trying to play fair !

  3. Soon republicans will remember what they were saying abut trump during 2016 primaries.

    mental case in the white house, he is a disgrace.

    yes it is treasonous on a large scale. since they are anti american. take away their military and federal aide and use it for real americans.

  6. The GOP is splitting into 2 groups: those that believe in objective reality and those that support Trump.

    • @Ruth Harris Just stop lol? The election was stolen and your position is we got away with it fair and square? Did you see the video released today? Thousands of extra votes being re-dumped in the counter over and over. Civil wars get started over things like this and you’re acting like it’s Xbox verse PlayStation.

    • @Mac Daddy 50 They have all of those. Have you been following news outside CNN and MSNBC?

    • @Rick James5678 try looking at facts for a change……the govenor of Texas ordered only one mail box per county in Texas…..45 spun conspiracy and lies theories about mail in ballots ….some people stood in lines for 15 hours to vote….you have to show id to vote….in California Republicans placed fake gathering boxes in districts they lost…all facts google it…the very same voting software was used in 2016….there have been over 50 lawsuits brought by45 and they all have been thrown out…because there is no proof…..reality dude and all facts

    • @Rick James5678 I’m not even going to bother looking for this stupid video. I’m sure its poll workers counting votes and nothing more.

    • @Rick James5678 Why of course. But again when faced with perjury or judges in all these cases asking lawyers “do you believe massive fraud was committed even Rudy answer was N O.” Explain that Einstein? It was said best by a judge Donald chose “voters not lawyers decide elections, and ballots not briefs is what they vote on.” Game Changer !

  7. Don’t agree with the facts — how crazy is that?

  8. All those GOP that are supporting Trump and spreading misinformation are probably as corrupted as Trump.

    • @Ruth Harris what about boris Johnson in the uk? Is he going to jail for all the covid deaths there? Or what about Justin Trudeau of Canada? He going to jail too?

    • President Trump is not brought like McConnell. That’s the difference between the Real Republican party and corrupt Republican. After the covid19 relief Bill. There’s only $600 for the American people And the rest of the $900000trillion to overseas aid???🙄😱. Yep!! The Nancy Pelosi Democratics Bill, right there folks💩

    • And the American people voted Democrats. That’s the Thanks you people got for voting Joe Biden 🙄💩

    • @Mike Mason here’s the difference…..Other leaders did not send 40,000 pounds of ppe to China in January….NPR reported it in March…..second at least 5 times 45 stated the virus was a hoax….and almost all of Fox parroted it… not believe we blame 45 for the virus…..we blame his response to it ….

      They are absolutely as corrupt!! They are complicit enablers who should be held responsible for their actions and inactions.
      Shameful, irresponsible and lacking in character. Discrace to their oath.

    Anyone who believes fiction and not facts, needs to have their head examined by a proctologist.

    Errr…. Nearly all of the GOP could be shut in a room alone, start a fight with themselves and STILL lose…

  11. Trump has progressed from narcissistic rage to narcissistic panic.

  12. Think of it like someone who doesn’t believe in gravity. If they fall out of a window, then they might change their mind.

    • @Bobby Baird we’ve already had all that for 4 years. Don’t forget Russian asset

    • Ari Melber (non gentile last name) is under investigation by police for fondling
      young boys and has disturbing pictures of young boys on his laptop

      @J.R Ward Actually they now found a case of dead people voting in Delaware. Bruce Bartman, a Republican, registered his dead mom and dead mother in law and used them to cast illegal votes for……yep, you guessed it….. Trump.

      The key word being “might.”

      Propaganda is not good. In society , be a plus and not a minus .

    The republicans must bow down before their Golden Toilet.

  14. Kelly Ann Connedherway introduced alternative facts concept long ago.

    I’m waiting for tRump’s comedy fiasco on January 20 when he has a such meltdown his Depends can’t contain it all.

  16. The GOP should do away with the elephant, and make their new mascot the *Ouroboros;* the snake that eats itself…it’s much more fitting.

  17. Agent orange 45 should be banned from every running for office

  18. Joanne Fitzpatrick | December 22, 2020 at 8:56 PM | Reply

    He lost, and now he is losing it, and taking people down along with him

    The Mad King.

    “The Lord of the Rings is a documentary…”. That’s funny. But not far from the truth.

  20. Can you imagine the horrendous mess Trump would have made if he had another 4 years?
