  1. Thank you for putting them on the spot.
    He already knew that’s why I’ll never vote for a republican ever again

  2. What goes around comes around; the Republicans will incur consequences for their present abhorrent behavior. Be patient.

    • @Brian Holmes ‘those other examples drew the line at destroying our constitution,’ HUAC was able to function only because it routinely and systematically negated the Fifth Amendment (Marilyn Monroe was one of the few subpoenaed who stood up against this). I have no time for Donald Trump:- he is a traitor, and needs to face trial as such. But what he is doing isn’t new; most of his tricks have been seen before (and were as popular when they were fresh as he is now).

    • @Sir Garwy I agree, that’s why it’s imperative that Biden creates an independent non-partisan legal counsel to investigate and hold accountable all those who committed crimes during, with, and for Trump, including Trump. If we let them get away with their crimes our country of laws is finished. #JusticeMatters.

    • @Brian Holmes That sounds great, but the hands of justice are busy lifting the blindfold and tipping the scale in favor of these people. The Senate chose to acquit Trump, and in doing so, abdicated their constitutional responsibilities. Moreover, they have aided in the chaos of this government and their silence has enabled this president. History reveals that these people do not experience adverse consequences, but rather, they go on living within the exclusive and secretive power groups that wield influence. I can only hope that NYC and NYS can have some success in bringing Trump and his family to some semblance of accountability.

    • @Brian Holmes Politics are rooted in perception (which is defined with confirmation biases). The mere notion that Biden would authorize a nonpartisan, independent anything is failed at inception. Most presidents follow history and decorum, thus not pursuing legal criminal actions against their predecessor. My guess is that Biden will follow suit.

    • @Brian Holmes Unfortunately, we are a country of laws which are not informally applied.

  3. This guy is part of the problem

  4. And, there it is the ‘Right to life’, ‘Born to rule’ mentality that kills anybody who disagrees with you

  5. Senator Cassidy, you condemn the violence, but you refuse to condemn YOUR leader for inciting THAT VERY SAME VIOLENCE!! You, sir, are a sad excuse for a public servant.

    It’s called sedition. Arrest the miscreants.

    • sadly that won’t happen, in the spirit of “unity” the Biden administration won’t hold them accountable. The same thing happened with the transition from Dubya to Obama. Dubya’s administration was guilty of numerous war crimes and they all got away with it. When an actual competent fascist takes over, then it’s game over for the country…

    • It’s fomenting, sedition and making death threats.

  7. Trump, his creepy kids and his delusional supporters opted out of giving each other holiday desserts this year as they realize they are fruitcake already!

  8. Suddenly these Republicans feel Trump and his cronies are crazy as if they don’t know him since last four years. They are the enablers of Trump’s behavior. Hypocrites.

    • Yeah, they knew trump is nuts.
      They’re just simply whores.
      They got a few things they wanted so they looked the other way everytime trump said or did something crazy.
      Remember how all these guys talked about trump BEFORE the 2016 election?
      Only weak minded people without morals or scruples vote repub.

    • The Republicans and democrats are on the exact team. Part of the swamp. They had to ride on Trump’s coattails.

    • These republicans are rolling out videos and ballet tampering.now this is getting scary.

  9. It is illegal to make those statements. This must be STOPPED NOW. Or be arrested before somerhing bad takes place

      @Bulldog Mom X2 They never did. Barr can and will be fired but people keep voting in Mitch. Unbelievable! He really does have his miserable boot kicking the life out of Kentuckians.

      It isn’t criminal, though perhaps it should be. As long as he says “should be” without saying something way more specific, it falls under his free expression of opinion, and not a call to action. He can and likely will be sued, however.

    • Wendy Shackelford | December 3, 2020 at 9:02 PM | Reply

      Trumps lawyer actually said on air Chris Krebs should be “shot”! That is terrible!!

    • Bulldog Mom X2 | December 3, 2020 at 9:17 PM | Reply

      @Margaret Nicol You are totally right! 🇺🇸 I believe it’s time we start demanding action from all areas of our government.

    • @DynaCatlovesme so inciting murderous act to any potential mentally hyped up person how a person should be shot and potentially killed is ok?
      Some deranged law with this kind of freedom of speech, seems like freedom to parade with guns intimidating others is none the less different. Grazy laws.

  10. Digenova should be disbarred for encouraging murder. That was a stupid statement for a lawyer to make in public. .

    • Trump claims to get only the best. I see some real bottom feeders around him; I would never consider them intelligent either.

  11. Lady, give it up. You’re trying to pry reason out of political pimple.

  12. Bill pulled the old Sargent Schultz, “I know nothing, I don’t know the man, I didn’t hear anything…”

  13. What are we teaching our children? This republican administration is doing so much damage to our country that our children will be dealing with the negative fallout for years to come. God help them 🙏 🙏 🙏

    Bernie Sanders does not encourage violence like trump does, so bringing his name up to avoid condemning trump is ridiculous!!!!!! Any real reporter would’ve called him out on that BS spin!!!!

  15. Krebs should sue. If nothing else, he should be disbarred for unethical behavior. That kind of behavior should not be tolerated in public.

  16. Georgia. Dump is supposed to go there to campaign for the senators. He’s really going there to whine to Georgians.

  17. New dictionary definition of “dim witted” now known as “Trump witted”.

  18. Parslow Pongbert | December 3, 2020 at 6:06 PM | Reply

    Trump was elected after many times publicly condoning torture, so why only now are people criticising him, expecting him to condemn violence?

  19. Trump has radicalised more terrorists than Osama Bin Laden.

    • Suzanne Bryson | December 3, 2020 at 6:54 PM | Reply

      Absolutely!

    • THE ANGRY QUAD | December 3, 2020 at 7:03 PM | Reply

      Yeah like BLM and ANTIFA! Wait they were already there…….

    • @THE ANGRY QUAD
      Neither are classed as terrorist organisations. Now The Proud Boys and all the other right wing racist, loons – they _are_ classified as dangerous Radical Yeehawdists.

    • Anything that had to do with Black America STANDING UP saying stop killing us, WE ARE LABLED, we’re looked at as criminal. I support BLM! Stop degrading BLM! But it alright for whites to race rhetoric saying Jews will not replace us!

    • @THE ANGRY QUAD OHH R U CRYING LITTLE SNOWY. TAKE UR BS BACK TO FOX

  20. Trump encourages violence amongst his flock. It’s nothing new
