    The Mayor of Atlanta has had and demonstrated a very steady hand and has been decisive.

      @Walter Godsoe And no the FBI did NOT say that. They said that there were a couple of white nationalist who said to riot on face book and twitter. The only white agitators were ANTIFA in the crowds and they have been identified. Some were caught red handed with fire bombs.

      You clearly have trouble reading.

      @brian gardner Oh yes sources have been revealed over at Politico

      @Femmie Bot You ARE fuc*ed up in the head, twisted by hate. Everyone is innocent until proven guilty, no matter if you catch them red handed. That is the problem, that is civilized. What you spout is uncivilized. Just as uncivilized as the cop who does not respect that the person they catch is innocent, like George. He died innocent. But the looters, murderers, arsonist and rioters are all leftist/Dems. That is fact. The mayors in that city is a Democrat in charge.

    • Barr ordered tear-gas😷(smoke canisters💣💨 & rubber bullets) peaceful☮ protesters so Trump can do photo-op📸 holding a bible in front of a church.⛪

  3. How is this even a debate? IT’S A FUNDAMENTAL RIGHT

    • brian gardner | June 4, 2020 at 4:15 PM | Reply

      The big issue is in NO way a black or white thing. It is that almost all police think that the person they have caught is guilty, they are not. Even if they have them red handed. All American people are innocent until proven guilty. That means that when a officer grabs a person they should treat them as if they are an upstanding citizen no matter what.

    • @Kevin Steele
      And then take some Chloroquin, boy.

    • @anonymusum Don’t feed the troll mate, he’s obviously a mindless bot 😉

    • @____ Sorry – you´re right.

  4. Mayor Lance Bottoms: We need these voice to be heard, but in peaceful protest.
    t’rump: Dominate the battlespace!!!
    America: Are you still in your bunker?
    t’rump: **hangs up the phone**

      Absolutely, I pray she runs for President this lifetime!

    • @Kevin Steele
      Copy and paste troll …

    • It’s funny how democrats have become the party of off-the-grid lifestyles.
      It’s the most common thing I see in their playlists.

      Almost as beautiful as Melania!

      @Crimdor Yeah, they have always accepted Americans and responsibility for everyone in the country. Today, if you are a non-Trumper, you give up all your citizenship. Being so different from one another makes it a comprise to govern everyone in the nation.

  6. Yes, because the real looting is occurring over on Wallstreet.

    • Audie has playlists of literal Russians.
      Wake up democrats.

    • Why do people (not you but others) equate looting with protesting- they are two Different things– there are plenty of peaceful protests- which need to happen- yes there is looting and I hope and pray that it will be stopped soon- but NOT by guns and murder in the streets- let the punishment FIT the crime!!!!!!!- that’s what this hold George floyd movement is about- he should NOt have died for any reason- but certainly NOt for $20!!!!

      Kevin Steele What makes you think that those 2 million new gun owners are on your side? Maybe they’re tired of of your kind.

  7. time to go Andrea two many mistakes like that and detracts from a interview

    • Er……*too many mistakes i think you meant to say.
      That was your first mistake.
      Your second mistake was not writing *an interview.
      Your third mistake was lack of capitalisation and punctuation.

      Time to go, Kris.

    Atlanta Mayor!..That is my girl!
    They asked her what would she like to hear President Trump say.
    Her answer was and I quote
    “He should just stop talking”!

    DAMN!!!…I LOVE THAT!!!

    • Sophia Brown | June 4, 2020 at 4:40 PM | Reply

      So should she talking down to her people like that all colors were looting.

    • Muhammad Steinberg | June 4, 2020 at 5:01 PM | Reply

      @Sophia Brown That’s a very personal perception on your part. I didn’t comprehend it the way you did at all.

    • David Willis | June 4, 2020 at 5:04 PM | Reply

      @Sophia Brown Yeah reminding people, “You are better then that, We are better then that” is talking down to people. lol

  9. All I have to say : 8minuets 46 seconds Mama. RIP Dear Soul.

      Floyd committed a crime and was resisting arrest. He died from his own doing. You have no right to protest and loot. Send the military. Exterminate them all. Make America great and keep America great. We are the global peacekeepers foreign and domestic. Abide by the people’s laws or die.

    • Kepler Mission | June 4, 2020 at 6:00 PM | Reply

      @Paul Mallory Working-class gutter punks stay home.

    • Looter? Check Obama’s pocket after he left the WH.

  15. I like Andrea, easy going, calm. She makes Atlanta look very good. Can you imagine having a president who make USA look good.

    VP???? Looks good and is intelligent and if Joe Biden dies from old age she’ll be around for a while

    I really like her. I hope she goes on to become Governor, Congresswoman, Senator, etc.

  19. Morris Brown | June 4, 2020 at 6:33 PM | Reply

    She is a very nice pretty intelligent lady my respect for her and her city.

  20. She is incredibly strong, intelligent and competent. Her emotional intelligence is off the charts as well; she knows not to give her energy away to a malignant narcissist. She sets a great example for the rest of us. I absolutely want to see her as a presidential or vice presidential candidate in the future.
