  1. Trump has said worse things about Ted Cruz’s wife and father, and Ted loved him for it. 😂

  2. “Mostly true” so dude legit held a knife to this throat. Dang. Congress be wild.

    • John Boehner is a drunk.

    • @rajinbin No virtue left at all. No public service, just grifting. Is this clown going to give the proceeds from his book to charity. Heck no. Just like the Obama’s, this is all about getting rich off the taxpayers.

    So basically a large percentage of the United States government is run by unstable, greedy, geriatric psychopaths.

    Huh. Well that explains a lot.

  4. This is the best we can send to Washington? Hey folks no big deal right? They just want a piece of the pie! Wake up, we’re the pie 🤔

    • March ALL career politicians to the guillotines. (Not just DC scum…ALL the bastards…coast-to-coast.)

    • If anyone stupid enough to give Don the Con a piece of their pie 🥧 he’ll be happy to help himself to the rest of the whole pie‼️ And until you know it you’re left with 💩💩💩💩‼️😱🤮

      He said he didn’t see any election fraud but but 75 million other people said it was all a scam I watched it myself I watched my vote get thrown in the garbage can that’s why I left my town in my state what election were you watching Trump was going to take this nation to a good place where everyone would have prospered but now look at us and we’re not even halfway to the bottom yet it’ll be next year you must not care for your country much because I see my neighbors scraping by and suffering their homes falling apart haven’t had a vacation in decades while we watch these elites waste all this money in court battles one after another I’ll televise they love the cameras

      @Dixie Normis you know what’s funny they did show a clip of the white supremacist they were holding like tiki lamps but it’s just a group of people that like their own race now black lives matter they just like their own race they have black television bet remember black radio black music black churches black universities that’s racism can you imagine if the whites did that but they were just marching in the streets wasn’t a riot just March and showing their strength and numbers with the black lives matter they were coming to your cities and burning down and tearing up I’m getting in people’s faces remember the knockout punch or they run behind them unsuspected white person and knock them out that was blacks injuring white people never the other way around instead they should have been in Southern States burning their cities down because of the slavery we know the nurse didn’t have any slaves but we lost portions of some really nice cities because of black lives matter and antifa and a lot of people have died because of them I personally think they’re an ungrateful race of people I don’t see white people bothering them wanting to fight them or hurt them in any way because whites aren’t racist but I do enjoy my own race as much as the other races enjoy their own race the majority in this country is white but it’s not because we’re keeping people out we just want them to abide by the law come in the right way in the blacks need to blame the British for that the British brought the blacks here from Africa the Americans didn’t go to Africa and get them

      @Vasily Blokhin he said he saw no election fraud

      @adam m. The full quote carries much more weight and depth.

  6. Someone pulled a knife of you and you kept working with him? Dude woulda “hit” by a car next day…

  7. Lmfao I have got to get this book. This was the craziest 3 minute clip CNN has ever posted 😂😂😂😂

  8. So nobody gonna ask how dude was able to bring a 10 inch hunting knife into the Capitol?

    • @Corn Pop-Um, what? A person who has a knife pointed at their throat doesn’t care? Yeah, okay…

    • @August Blue so ur taking the word of someone who up till now u hated?
      hmmm… just like cohen huh?

    • @Cid Sapient -It’s not about taking his word for anything. It’s about the fact that you cannot publicly slander someone and expect to get away with it. Menacing someone with a knife is not something you just randomly throw in the middle of a conversation if it’s not true. Especially if you’re talking a senator doing the menacing.

    • @Corn Pop Sure it is, just like it’s your right to create Puppet Accounts to say the BS that you’d never say openly as yourself out side of your basement.

  9. I just want to know how Young got away with pulling a knife and putting it to his neck?????

    • @Richard Reese Didnt you know the deceivers switched their party names but nothing else, just like good crooked capitalist corporations..

    • @Richard Reese Google ‘ the Southern Strategy ‘ .

    • @CC Chodkowski Their secret service guys don’t hold their hands when they are in congress .

    • @Lisa Mcdonald Exactly Lisa these moronic Repub/Trumpists think that because Lincoln was considered a Republican in 1864 that they are of his party when in fact in todays politics they would label Lincoln a radical Leftist . The parties have completely flipped since the early 1900’s .

      @Richard Reese They’ve been brainwashed into thinking the parties switched. As if Republicans agreed to be the racist ones for a spell. I wonder if they all agreed to switch again in the future. 😂

      @Andre BodoI’m not talking about Chump I’m talking about Boehner he’s a POS too but unlike Tea party lead Cruz he never threw his kids under that bus

    • @Michael Morningstar woohoo! I’ve been “owned”! funny, I don’t feel owned 🤔. in fact I kind of feel like I’m dumber for having even acknowledged your comment. my mistake. it won’t happen again.

    • Leigh Weston Precisely!

    It’s shocking that a Congressman would hold a knife to Boehner’s throat. I think what’s even more stunning is that a Congressman had a ten inch knife on his person. Wow!

      @Um Mu thanks i know, i actually can’t anymore i love America because of all the knowledge, researchers and the amazing life some smart people there helped by freedom, gave us, but the US gouverment is a cancer to this world and i am sad to say this but it’s so very real, i am just afraid that this might turn on the ordinary people and that America is at the dawn of a breaking point

    I always loved his statement about Cruz, “Lucifer in the flesh”!

    “The president is the most unique person we’ve had as a president, but the fact is he’s president” I think that’s literally the least complimentary you can be of the man without actually insulting him 😂

    Got to be the first time I’ve seen a politician accurately describe Ted Cruz.

  18. I’m impressed that he kept his cool. If a coworker put a knife to my throat, at least one of us is going to be bleeding once they relax and pull it away.

  19. “Our Founders, when they wrote the Constitution, they suspected that there could be a rogue president. I don’t think they suspected that we could have a rogue president and a rogue leader in the Senate at the same time.”
    – House Speaker Nancy Pelosi talking about former president DJT and Rep Senate leader Mitch McConnell
