    Asking Trump to be the leader that’s needed right now is like asking an apple to become a bowling ball.

      *Why isn’t anyone mentioning the fact they worked together as bouncers?* That is just a very odd coincidence in my opinion! *Believe nothing you hear, and only one half that you see.* And what is up with the bricks?

    • I sincerely hope so. He has been there far too long

    • No they didn’t.This was a peaceful protest that had been there for several hours without incident. They were given very little notice, just minutes, that they needed to clear the park before they were effectively charged,most by Police in riot gear along with National Guard. Personally I think the only “Terrorist” involved was the inhabitant of the White House.

    • If you can’t see the obvious racism then I pity you, and sincerely hope for your sake that you don’t really support this ignorant P.O.S.

    • Eddy Hanson If you don’t know Trump is racist by now then not much will get through to you, obviously people have tried to explain it to you, but they probably used big words

  2. Right a wolf would turn vegan before Trump could play a leader on TV.

  3. By the way, not just black people, all human with ❤️ are mad, sad, and so terrified by the brutal killing in the daylight in public

  4. A leader without empathy is like a bird without feathers. It is grotesque and will never soar.

    Too busy in his bunker or doing photo ops with a bible to actually care and act like a leader.

      TrickOr Trump 👈🏼😂 the peaceful protestors were told by the tyrannical blue state leftist governors (who want to crash the economy) that we must shelter in place until the viral curve is flattened so as to not overwhelm hospitals … one tyrant even laughably said they must shelter until a vaccine is found …when it’s obvious that hospitals aren’t overwhelmed and the viral curve is flattened – the tyrants move the goal posts repeatedly … the same peaceful non looting non business burning protestors also decried the banning of lawn mowing, fishing, and attending church outdoors even while in their own automobiles ..

      In any event – liberal dolts and their fake news media apparatchiks mocked these protestors for DEFYING lawful executive orders … but now it’s totally cool to defy lawful executive orders … ‘orders for thee, but not for me,’ huh pudding?

      @Liberal Beta Male NPC Yeah I already explained why it’s different.

    • Liberal Beta Male NPC | June 2, 2020 at 5:30 PM | Reply

      TrickOr Trump 👈🏼😂 ‘contradiction’ = liberals lecturing America about ‘systemic racism’ and ‘white privilege’ after a Hillary & Mayor Pete donating female liberal in Central Park called the police on an African American man under false pretenses … ‘contradiction’ = bug eyed white privileged liberals lecturing everyone about racism while poised to nominate an old white guy for president who once said as a senator that he favors a ‘separate but equal’ approach to segregation, the same liberals who shilled for white woman in 2016, who referred to a former klansman as being a ‘mentor’ to her. Oops!

    • Liberal Beta Male NPC | June 2, 2020 at 5:34 PM | Reply

      TrickOr Trump 👈🏼😂 But it’s not different, dippy … you don’t get to criticize peaceful ‘lawless’ protestors for defying an executive order and then defend violent ‘lawless’ protestors defying an executive order … but you’re right … there’s a difference … the peaceful protestors didn’t loot or burn down a single minority owned business .. your team burned down many minority owned businesses. Good job dummy … bravo! Well done! You whine about racism while displacing minority owned business owners. Such stable geniuses you are. 👏👏👏👏

    Just like the Mayor said. In my words he needs to shut his mouth and let somebody with a heart to do the talk!!!

      Very few of these people have empathy much less know how to spell or feel it. Ya’ll are STUPID.

      The orange one has spent seventy four years on this earth.
      He has failed to learn the most important lessons in life.
      It’s time to stop asking why. He’s not going to stop.
      We must stop him.
      Show up and vote in every election.
      Vote against each and every individual who made it possible for this mistake to occupy the white house.

    • The Mayor and Governor are failing the people and are not protecting the citizens.

    • Nobody in that White House has a heart, that’s why the U.S. is in the position it is in. Grinches

    • The Governors And Mayors are not doing the job they were voted in to do instead they sit there and let their city burn time the ground and dont protect the people who v ok Ted them in.

    • Marcus Guzman | June 2, 2020 at 2:01 PM | Reply

      @J Bellamy: I didn’t vote for trump, so I have a Clear Conscience; I told a great friend of mine whom actually worked for trump on the apprentice she asked if we would be voting for Trump I told her in November of 2015, that no I wouldn’t be voting for him I told her he was an outstanding business man I was just being respectful of her because she admired him but I thought he was a poor business man and a sick individual… That was a bad decision… To put him in office.

    • @J Bellamy – Actually … and this is fact … 12% of Bernie supporters voted for tRump. I thought they were just naive. Not so. A new poll now states that 15% of Bernie supporters will vote for tRump in 2020. On top of that, another fairly large percentage of Bernie supporters just did not vote. I don’t think they are really Bernie supporters. I think they want chaos. Bernie being President would be chaos for the right and tRump being President would be chaos for the left.

    • Galileosays | June 2, 2020 at 2:33 PM | Reply

      @J Bellamy Never. I didn’t vote for him.

    • Marcus Guzman this isn’t all about you. That’s the problem with liberalism. You have no problem telling blacks to crap all over MLK just for your own political ideals. And so you know, it seems important to you, I didn’t vote for trump either in 2016. I stupidly fell for the fake polling. This problem is bigger than trump. It’s bigger than George Floyd. It’s certainly bigger than you!

    When are people going to stop expecting Trump to behave presidential? He can’t do it.

      @Motch DeNotch that’s called projection motch, liberals are notorious for blaming and accusing everyone else. Do you know what a hypocrite is?

    • Motch DeNotch | June 3, 2020 at 11:57 AM | Reply

      @Mr Deplorable2020 A hypocrite is someone who thought Obama was lawless but supports Trump. A hypocrite is someone who thought the Benghazi investigation, which continued for nearly 4 years without a single indictment, was real but the Mueller investigation, which produced numerous indictments pointing to a cover-up and was shut down prematurely after only 2 years, was a hoax. A hypocrite is someone who thought Bill Clinton deserved to be impeached for a petty personal indiscretion but not Trump for a flagrant ongoing crime spree done in public view. A hypocrite is someone who believed Hillary Clinton was untrustworthy for using private email on the job as Secretary of State but doesn’t see anything wrong with Trump using unsecured devices and private texting on the job as President. I could go on like this all day if need be, but you get the picture. Such people are not called “liberals,” though; they’re called “conservatives” (or Republicans), and their blaming and accusing everyone else of the very crimes they commit daily, and out in the open, is literally destroying the US.

    • @Booker T. Dooley oh they have ways, unfortunately…

      Easier to just write it for him and show him where to mark his “X” with one of the crayons you keep telling him not to push up his nostrils.

      Trump is a Narcissistic sociopath, he will do the opposite of what we want he will only do what he wants and as long as we keep responding to his negativity which fuels his narcissism he will continue to do the opposite on purpose because that is his narcissistic sociopath tendencies

    • TBKSTUDIOZ840 All we are saying, is give Pence a chance. He’s not a good guy, but he’s not Trump-level evil. He could play president until November, then fade away onto Fox “News”.

      Why do the Trump zombies always seem to think caps-lock constitutes an argument? It just makes the drivel you type look even dumber.

    • Well, Trump doesn’t. He’s infinitely narcissistic.

      Your statement has no basis in fact. The vast majority of protests are peaceful.
      YOUR LISTENING TO PROPAGRAMPA AGAIN! Were going to have to cut off your supply of tinfoil.

      Obama was there for 8 years and couldn’t do any reform for black lives to matter. Obama couldn’t even do prison reform. Yet many of us couldn’t call him out; we loved him still. Let’s unite the nation by talking to the White House on the Reforms needed for these things to stop. Trump did it once with respect to prison reforms. Let’s task him one more time. God bless America.

      @fatoba dimeji Oprah Winfrey matters. OJ Simpson mattered until … he thought his white wife’s life didn’t matter. Stepin Fetchit, Tiger Woods, they just don’t have the best values.

    I’ve lived in Atlanta for 32 years. In my opinion, she’s the best mayor we’ve had during that time.
