    45 accusing others of profiting is ironic and disturbing.

  2. Please get everyone you know registered to vote.

  3. The Republican Party is no longer a political party/movement. It’s a criminal organization

      If i tried to tell you what the democrat party was they would remove the post. Now what does that say. Maybe republicans arent as bad and powerful as you think. You are allowed to criticize them online. Tread carefully when talking about democrats they will remove it.

    • Talking about ur self dumb Democrat

    • With a Don at the top.

    • @Factsthat Hurtfeelings How come then I have read comments on which terrible things are said about democrats? Like demonrats, traitors, lefties, communists, looters, rioters. None of these critics were removed. Proof? I read comments slandering the democrats. Means you are like your fuhrer: A liar

    • it always has been a criminal organization

  4. Let’s not forget trump having Col Vindman escorted out of the Whitehouse for telling the truth.

    • * McChrystal wrote in a November column for CNN that “America is facing a leadership crisis,” calling Trump “just the most bombastic example of this phenomenon, which has been playing out for decades.”
      McRaven responded to Trump’s attack on McChrystal with a statement to CNN on Tuesday.
      “Stan McChrystal is one of the great generals of this generation and the finest officer I ever served with,” McRaven said. “He is a deep strategic thinker, tactically brilliant, with unparalleled personal courage. His leadership of special operations forces in Iraq and Afghanistan unquestionably saved the lives of thousands of American and allied troops, as well as countless civilians. No general I know has given more in the service of this country.”
      In his Sunday interview, McChrystal also reacted to James Mattis’ resignation from the Trump administration as secretary of defense earlier this month. Mattis wrote in his resignation letter that Trump had the right to have a defense secretary whose views “better aligned” with the President’s.
      “If we have someone who is as selfless and as committed as Jim Mattis, resigns his position walking away from all the responsibility he feels for every service member in our forces, and he does so in a public way like that, we ought to stop and say, okay, why did he do it?” McChrystal said. “We ought to ask what kind of commander in chief he had that Jim Mattis, that the good Marine, felt he had to walk away.”

    • Trump is a criminal and fascist. Trump and his supporters gives Jim Jones and the People’s Temple a run for their money!

    • It wasn’t just Lt Col Vindman, it was his brother as well.

    • And his twin brother for no other sin than being …. his brother.

    • You people are rediculous…. Wow.

  5. Those service members saw June first, they saw Alexander Vindman, they saw what happened with our Kurdish allies, they became aware of bounties on their heads through the media, they see how Trump placates our foreign adversaries, they see how he has weakened our NATO alliances, what we did in Germany, how their Children’s school went to an ineffective wall….
    Actions, not words. The Military and our Veterans are people of conviction and action. They value honor and strength of character. It is why Trumps has fallen with Active duty and Veterans alike in such a short period.

  6. Is this a joke? Getting out of war? There is a bigger war that he has been cooking ever since 2017, and especially 2020

  7. Dr Fauci and his family got deaths threats because of trump. Trump’s revenge knows no limits.

  8. I’m still trying to figure out why anyone in their right mind would even work for this man, much less continue to support him.

  9. Alaine Van Ness | September 8, 2020 at 12:02 AM | Reply

    We all heard him call John McCain a loser. What a horrible human being. Lier!

  10. I can believe now that he’s fully in cahoots and synchronized with Russia/Putin.

  11. When HE ordered the military to desert the Kurds on the battlefield is when he lost the soldiers.

    • He’s still losing them.

      Any soldiers that love Trump are few and far between, unless they’ve had traumatic brain injuries, like those he doesn’t think are severe or real. Trump cut the health benefits for active soldiers and for vets. They have to be aware of that. They are aware of the Kurd disavowal and his order to not back them up. They know that he is loyal to Putin over any ally or U.S. soldier. It is a game to him. Please troops, don’t throw your lot in with this disloyal and dishonest miscreant. We all deserve better. Vote BLUE. Vote Biden & Harris this Nov.3rd.

      So, before that he lost an entire carrier fleet he thought was on its way to threaten North Korea but was in fact 5000 miles away on maneuvers with the Australian navy.

    • Victoria Van Laanen | September 9, 2020 at 4:04 PM | Reply

      @Sterling Pound I remember that. Made a splash in the news of Trump’s lameness as a leader for the military, Traitor-in-Chief. 🏴‍☠️

    • An open ended commitment of troops is unrealistic . At some point you have to go .

    Dr Fauci got death threats for telling scientific facts and trying to save people’s lives, so i don’t blame the anonymous people for staying anonymous.

    • We didn’t even know who Watergate s Deep Throat was until shortly before he died. There were numerous unnamed sources in “All the Presidents Men”.

    Trump anti-war?? He sent the military to peaceful American protesters in American soil!!

  15. He’s worried about who’s side the military will be on when he starts his civil war…

    • Walt Schmidt
      They don’t have to try to sway the military.. The Military is not supporting him when he is unconstitutionally spouting his BS and lies.. They are sworn to uphold the constitution NOT a president..

    • @Walt Schmidt You’re nothing but a bully, just like trump.
      Go home.

    • @nancy wutzke You are a weak minded coward. Leave the country. You are ruining it.

    • @Walt Schmidt only bullies talk the way you do, just like your Putin loving president. What muppets!

    • @Gelly Martin And only children complain about bullies. GROW UP! If you are too childish, immature and unintelligent to handle adult conversations the way ADULTS conduct themselves then join a children’s chat room. Too bad if you don’t agree with the things other people say. Too bad if you don’t agree with the way they say them. It is called life. And too bad if your parents didn’t raise an adult that is capable of handling adversity without resorting to name calling, and trying to convince others you are somehow a victim. Romper room is OVER. GROW UP.

  16. November 3 can’t get here fast enough! VOTE BLUE!

      Monroe You just said the truth. I often could care less what the press says or thinks.. I’m just happy it exists and has the freedom to. For anyone, especially the President, to want the press silenced whenever it criticizes policy they do not belong in the highest office. We moved beyond that decades ago. People who support his threats to the press do not know how or why leaders should have a backbone…..kinda like the GENERALS AND SOLDIERS.

    • Great post! I just really wonder how people would think of the “fake news” media, if the ONLY thing you were allowed to watch would be state( government) sponsored media, such as in Russia?? They are all doing a job they are getting paid to do, & @ the end of the day, ratings is what they value the most because then they can charge more for ads, so of course most of them spin things one way or another! Take it @ face value & do your own research on a subject if you dont believe what is being reported!!

    • @BlackberrySage thanx.. And yes, the press must be free.., bad, good, fake, true, whatever it is, it can’t be up to him, then it’s no longer a Presidency, then it’s something else.. ✌️

    • @Esther Smith Thnx! Well.. Like you said, Russia.. He already expressed admiration for Putin and Kim for having such control over a nation, I guess he discovered by now, that it’s possible even for America. The first thing Hitler did when climbing to power was calling the press “Lügen press” (Lying press) when they wrote about his politics. Like this slime is doing.. Same same but different ✌️

  18. Americans bought a lemon with no warranty. It’s trade-in time.

  19. He sold billions to the saudi’s in weapons….did he “forget”?

    • Ricardo ALEJANDRE | September 9, 2020 at 7:31 AM | Reply

      I was amazed there is video of him with with poster and saying they didn’t pay enough and saudi in front of him. Who told him that would be a good idea. These things aren’t cars.any other president would have been shamed for months but him good job.

    “Why won’t these cowards reveal themselves to say what happened?”
    *Lt. Col Alexander Vindman* told the truth about Trump. It ended his decades long career. Not content just to ruin Alexander’s career, Trump also had his identical twin brother, *Lt. Col Yevgeny Vindman* fired. *Jeff Sessions* no longer has a political career. He accused himself from the Mueller Investigation, which he was legally obliged to do. Trump has tortured him for years, turned GOP voters against him and totally finished him. politically. I’ve been concerned that Trump could motivate one of his *Kyle Rittenhouse* type psycho gun-nut fans to shoot *Dr Anthony S Fauci.* Trump now tries to blame Dr Fauci for his governments terrible response to the Trump-virus, so that’s the loved ones of 194,000 dead people who could want revenge. PLUS everyone knows that Trump has turned on Dr Fauci. Trumps supporters have a bad habit of trying to go vigilante on anyone perceived to be an enemy of *Orange Hitler.*
    Here’s a link to an article listing everyone, every place and every thing that Trump has attacked on twitter.
