  1. Got the Gestapo SS to replace real Patriots with liars!

  2. This is EXACTLY what we fought against in the rhe Revolutionary war and Cold War. This is fascism and autocracy rolled into one. This is completely UNAMERICAN and disgusts me to see this happening in our country. I never realized being a trump supporter meant being UNAmerican but here we are….

    • @Scott Brooks I agree with you. Are you are trying to tell me Trump is absolved of his failures to be the president I voted for because the Democratic canidate is socialist? Bernie is pie in the sky insane but at least I could leave my money and wife with him if I got deployed, and they would both be untouched when I got back. I am not a Democrat, nor a Bernie supporter, oh God. I think that wearing a donkey or an elephant is fucking stupid. I believe you should vote for the person, regardless if party, who, if we are lucky, will put America First. Not make it First, not make themselfs the top American, but put the whole of America first. And…that means if the majority doesn’t like what Bernie or Trump or who ever is doing, then the Congress will reflect that and shut it down. That’s why mid terms almost always swing the other way. It’s just a back and forth. But this all started because I truly wanted to know what Chris Cole was talking about. I don’t take it too serious.

    • @Scott Brooks
      Releasing Iran’s own frozen $, after they complied with the non nuclear proliferation treaty?
      Is that what you are referring to?
      Or are you just pulling a nugget out of your sphincter, claiming Obama gave Iran US tax $ ?

    • @Patrick Romo easy being Democrat, you don’t have to us your brain.
      You have TDS!

    • @LoboKhan1 bullshit, and you Know it!
      Obama is a traitor!

    • @get lost
      Sure, only because you are connected to Donald’s backside, like a good little centipede segment.
      Let Obama make that type of list, or a Clinton, and you’d be screaming bloody murder to the rooftops.
      Drumpf’s centipede segments still scream about Benghazi, or Hilary’s
      Emails, no matter that Gowdy and other GOP members investigated and found nothing they could prosecute her for.

      And then Donald’s sycophants want to cry about Dems rightfully investigating Don the Con.

      If I were a Dem, I’d give you hypocrites the finger all day, every day, and twice on Sundays.

  3. All fascist regimes start with purges.

  4. The SDNY have a list and top of it is the fat orange tumour himself! I dare say he’s on the top of a Iranian list as well when’s he out of office!!!

  5. Just another proof that history repeats itself and no one can do anything about it. Exactly the same story on how dictatorships start.

    • @Carol Price Where does he go from there? He only has 4 and a half more years. Then the next guy steps in and undoes what Trump did if he so chooses.

    • @Jeff J I have a question for you. What do tyrants usually do. Do they peacefully leave office?

    • @Jeff J Why should he only have 4 more years? He is above the law.
      He knows that if he leaves office he’ll likely face criminal charges. Why would he recognize the two term rule? If you don’t see where this is going, you’re the gullible one.
      Dictatorships don’t need elections.

    • Khalid The Democrats tried with the impeachment but the corrupt Republicans lied for him and wouldn’t impeach him knowing he did a whole lot more than the two things they impeached him for. He’s been so corrupt and then the Republicans won’t do anything. I hope the ones up for election don’t get voted in again. They don’t deserve too after the corruption they let Trump get away with. It makes them just as guilty.

    • @sandy frye yes it does.

  6. I would say to all: READ ‘1984’ AND ‘ANIMAL FARM’ of George Orwell!
    You will recognize so much!
    And he wrote of the regime of Joseph Stalin in communist Russia!

    • Dave Waldon Read Machiavelli’s The Prince & The 48 Laws of Power and you will see that their goals have been used by tyrants for centuries.

    • @Paul Schramm Hitler doomed Germany when he started to direct the war himself and ignore his generals.
      But the analogy does break down when you consider Hitler did serve in the army and was wounded in WWI and Trump …

    • You idiots screaming at trump… He is your Goldstein.

    • The people who think this is all great and could do with reading those books, don’t read

  7. ; ;

    Orange man bad!

  8. I’m old enough to Remember when omarosa went on TV talking about that list. How are we still stuck on he has an enemies list 3 yrs later?

  9. “…and the rats started turning on each other …”

  10. Whenever someone says loyal, what they should say is obedient

      @Ricky Coleman republicans say it you don’t have good insurance for your wife it’s tough luck . They said it many times when Obama was trying to do Obama care. Karma .

    • Ricky Coleman He has to learn that the U.S. or any other country does not govern by trying to make personal friends of despots like Kim Jong Un, or Putin, or the leader of Turkey Erdogan, is it? That is a childishly simplistic notion. He also was ridiculous when he ignored our European allies. The guy is a one man demolition team trying to isolate us from our governmental process.

    • seek and destroy Not a kind thing to say.

    • @Ricky Coleman Do you ever do any independent research? Any fact finding? Did you watch the hearings in Congress or the Senate?

      It sure doesn’t look like it. You just open your little MAGA beak and swallow it all whole… hook, line, sinker. Wake up, Bud.Trump is not your friend. He has done NOTHING for you. It’s all been for his rich buddies. After he got that atrocious “tax break” passed. He went down to Mira Lago and boasted to all his rich friends, “I just made you all a whole lot richer…”. They applauded.

    • @ryvr madduck Federal employees pledge loyalty to We The People and the perennial Constitution of the United states, not to some elected public servant. Wake up, you pathetic, clueless, sycophant.

  11. Never Trumper: Any person with a conscience.

  12. If he’s going to act like King George, then let’s hope he follows through all the way.

  13. Pure DICTATOR move!!

    73 yr business man who failed at keeping a casino open , along with many other failed business , 3 prenups , cheated on all 3 wives , hires and fires people , calls people names , shows how he is a stable genius . When you read and study about George Washington or Lincoln , Trump is so far at the bottom with regards to intelligence, integrity , empathy , kindness , honesty , he would make a great used car salesman . The kind that have 250,000 miles on them . 🤪😜🚙

  15. This is how Hitler started, the enemy list, them vs us, purging perceived threats. Blame!

  16. This is the Manchurian Candidate in reality. Dark money, Stalinesque purging, an easily manipulated figurehead, hidden power. It’s all there and it may be too late.

      Oh but bpedo-bernie WILL be the democrat candidate, believe me.
      So, the question for voters is:
      Do you think America is ready for communism?

    • Says Barack Obama is the “first president to appoint 34 czars to replace elected officials in his office.” It’s like democrats don’t remember how you were hypocrites…

    • The Russia thing left the building when Mueller went to go check into the old folks’ home.

  17. I’m going to start incorporating this logic in my life. Don’t feel up hanging out tonight? Never-friend-er. Don’t feel like eating dessert? Never dessert-er. Don’t want to go to the gym today? Never gym-er.

    “We’ve all read and seen about the current desire of the president to purge his government. . .” It’s not HIS government. The government belongs to all of the citizens of the United States.

    Their JOB is NOT to be “loyal” to him. They are NOT there to be loyal to him. Their JOB is to be loyal to their JOB and their JOB is to help run this country and honor their oath. Period point blank. They owe Trump ZERO loyalty.

      Billy Pardew I don’t care about your views on Obama and whistleblowers and what not. The point is their loyalty is to the job they were sworn into and defending the constitution. NOT to the president. Their job is to fulfill their duties. Not to defend, protect and cover up and lie for the president. That’s not apart of their job description.

      Ed Dursky Um I’m sorry do you know me?? I don’t believe you do. So please have several seats.

      Fake News CNN Lost to Nick Sandmann that’s funny you mention dictatorships because Trump adores dictators. He’s besties with couple. Also it’s not “Democrats” it’s intelligence that’s briefing them on the Russian matter.

      get lost says the nobody with the username “get lost” haha. It’s very simple. This goes for literally any job ever. Your job is to fulfill your role and responsibilities in said role. Period. And government officials are not there to protect and defend the president. The only ones who’s job that is, is the secret service.
