    1. @Aleisa Etheridge , That’s funny, just like a typical Democrat don’t know what they’re talking about. Boohoo for the blue

    2. @Frank Reno OPPS SORRY NO. Not a Dem Baby. We r just people who r not so stupid that We would be lead around like a goat the way Trump leads U lol. Your really delusional if U think people that r descent and have any kind if brain would believe any of the bulk Trump is shoveling. I mean really ?? A Golden idle , WELL U must not know your Bible , WELL don’t feel bad , trump doesn’t either. He holds one sometimes but it burns his hand so not for long.

    1. @J Groovy Yeah, commies will do that to any country. Once this illegitimate government is thrown out US can heal.

    2. @Jakub Lizon Dumb libs sitting in discussion section of fake news CNN and accusing GOP of gas lighting…. ahahaha…

    3. @Covid Hoax I know you’re a troll. And yes, when you know the identities, histories, and politics of almost everyone who participated in the capitol riot, and Trumpists say it was invisible boogeyman “Antifa”, that’s gaslighting. Mr. “Covid Hoax”. Didnt you give Trump credit for a vaccine for a virus that doesn’t exist?

    4. @Jakub Lizon Capitol riot? When? All I saw was mostly peaceful protest. Certainly a lot more peaceful than Portland, Minneapolis, Seattle, or DC itself in the summer.
      You’re the troll, not me.

  1. “It is a airing of grievances, a festival of resentment that doesn’t help anyone.”

    He just described Twitter

    1. Roger Stone is the owner of “stop the steal” registered business started to collect money for trump’s debts. white supremacists idolizing old white men.

  2. I came to a similar conclusion about distraction. In the past, I fell for the trolls who for some odd reason just want to keep things stirred up. But then … I realized this type of attempt to defend myself or set straight the misinformation was just a way of triggering the insults. There’s no genuine debate in all this. It’s just an excuse to start throwing out the name calling and insults. It’s not even the case where the other person offers their own defense, it’s just immediate verbal attacks. trump has given these people permission to fall back on this type of attack, and whether there’s reason or not, they’ll use it. This type of high school teasing and blaming and name calling, is more about the person’s inability to do anything meaningful in their lives. It’s sad really. I can’t imagine that this helps the person feel better.

    1. I agree with you so much! When I’m “trolled” I practice ignoring them; no point in dignifying their rhetoric with a reply. And, as you noted, just starts a no win mud slinging fest. I’ve almost gotten to the point where I simply don’t read beyond the first comment as all subsequent replies are usually trolls trying to start some kind of fight. I have neither the time nor energy to accommodate them.

    2. The people constantly “Trolling” are either doing it for attention or pleasure, which may be the same thing.

    3. The point of the attack is to stop you from correcting their lies. If you let them affect you, they won. Ignore the insults, they wouldn’t bother you if they came from a 2 yrs old, would it? same thing. Just correct their misinformation, they can’t take it, that’s why they resort to insults.

  3. What’s the old saying,”Sticks and stones may break my bones but names can never hurt me.” As you say he wants an response. By ignoring him will bother him much more.

    1. @The Internet Gremlin Who cares when Biden clearly does have Dementia and can’t even ANSWER a QUESTION without a Teleprompter!

    2. @Ray Cann Ohh honey you can’t debate me but at least you showed up! Hairy legs,that,that,that,that,that

    3. @Ms Reen Biden really does have Dementia! He doesn’t even make sense most of the time! Corn Pop hairy legs and you know the thing!

  4. Coincidence that the system makes a virtue of hard work in the period of history where it takes 3 jobs to fend off eviction?

    1. 50% of Republicans love to hide behind the bible, but their lifestyle doesn’t match up with the bible.
      It’s so sad . HYPOCRITES!!!!!!!

    2. @Mimzy Jinx Your spewing complete BS from your Puppet account! No one with any common sense will ever believe you copy paste puppets! Try being real for a change!

    3. ​@Steam fish White rice And Democrats all think that they’re the tolerant party of diversity. Their diversity is only skin deep. When they talk about unity, they mean after they’ve eliminated everyone else.

    4. @Mimzy Jinx not sure what you’re talking about bud. Republicans obviously don’t want unity. From 2000 on their behavior has proved such. If they want to reach across the aisle and work to better this nation they can start. We already tried they didn’t want to

  5. Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again expecting a different result. They keep backing Their Lame Duck and they keep losing.

    1. I don’t know,
      Putin and his anon army are pretty infuriating to me.
      Link your accounts everyone, there are worse fates
      than death – becoming a soviet seems one of them.

    2. @Devon Knobel The Soviet union dissolved. Qanon may be psyops. An exercise in getting people to do nothing. If you added up the destruction and unintended deaths for Antifa, BLM and Qanon, Qanon would come in dead last. But CNN has latched onto and therefore you have become obsessed with it.

    3. @Mimzy Jinx do some research on right wing extremist attacks in the U.S and you will see who are the real terrorists. I’ll give you an easier one. How many of the school shooting have been right wing extremist?

  6. Never make an unworthy person a priority because doubtful words are just an option doubtful people speak

  7. the biggest “DISTRACTION” here is exactly how they have named this get together……… “CANCEL CULTURE” they are cancelling out ALL of reality!!!!!

    1. What ! ,Did he say “THE BIBLE “??? May his tongue sting ! And his toes curl….! Weren’t, these same ones were out to KILL THOSE OF CONGRESS !!! “KNUCKHEADS , SMH .

  8. I like that, “refuse to be confused” Don Jr is a nobody and his only claim to fame is through his daddy.

  9. One day, when he’s not high, DJT Jnr will look in a mirror and see himself for what he truly is……I’m sure each person who reads this can apply an appropriate adjective!

  10. You should have responded to him by just saying something about him being an actual liar and traitor. Never stop. He is a liar and traitor and you have an entire reservoir of proof to back up your statements while he only has opinion. Kind of like Fox News.

  11. Cancel culture, being canceled and silenced while they have several “news” propaganda outlets like Fox News, OAN, and NewsMax, got it

    1. @YouTube deleted My Account LMAO yeah and Trump supporters think it’s such a bad thing. It’s not called censorship it’s called accountability if someone spews lies and misinformation they will have their account removed.

  12. “There’s no time to talk about this” “so here is a panel of people we gathered together to talk about this.”
