  1. The real suckers and losers are the people who continue to support him.

    • @Chris Corbin Your hatred of him is blinding you from the truth. You think they would let him get away with it. America had eliminated, prosecuted and killed every man in the world who have committed high crimes against the U.S.A. I have been a small part of that community to hunt for those such individuals. Spare me with your false allegations and i understand fully it’s all part of being corrupt politicians who try and destroy each others character just to gain such fame and so called power.

    • @Jesse Lowry very well said….why does Biden have to touch young children he is out and about….all you guys that vote for Biden had better lock your kids up

    • @Jaha Karto you look and sound like a biden supporter…..do you honestly believe that people listen to your childish comments….

    • @Judy Bodnar we the people are the ones that voted Trump in….and you will vote him in again

    • @Jesse Lowry I am,British, the rest of the world are looking in and laughing at America…..He is The President of the United State’s and the majority of people on this thread are the laughing stock of the world….he was voted in….its that simply….deal with it and stop crying like little lost children……I thought America was tough……mmmmmmmm

  2. Gotta love Pete! Wisdom beyond his years.

  3. I am a USMC veteran of twenty two years, seventeen days, three hours and thirty seven minutes. I served and fought in conflicts that never made the newspapers, I witnessed the loss of several of my Marines along the way, my career ended with a Fragmentation Grenade exploding more than eighteen feet away, left me with enough shrapnel in my body to build a 1955 Buick, nine fingers and eight toes! A cowardly male who dodged the Draft has no opinion that need be recognized.

  4. Abraham Lincoln once said, “Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man’s character, give him power.” Power certainly revealed Trump’s character.

      Then, stop calling him one. I only type his name in all lowercase letters. I REFUSE to even put that title anywhere near his name. THAT is how insignificant he is.

    • deborah DeborahR | September 6, 2020 at 5:40 AM | Reply

      Compared to trump….charles manson and jeffrey dahmer had integrity!!

  6. Love this guy! We need him in Biden’s administration. A smart, loyal patriot who is willing and able to contribute & serve our country in so many ways!

  7. Those supporting Trump call themselves patriots, they should be ashamed.

    • @Jim Patriot So ONE question: Why didn’t trump attend the ceremony? Other leaders like Macron, Kelly,Merkel and Trudeu were able to attend by CAR in the RAIN! Air Force One has plans for a Nuclear attack, but the Secret Service had no plans for RAIN?

    • @Jim Patriot Wake up buddy……

    • @rose andrade These POS cannot be real Americans, i wonder how many are Putin trolls and bots and how many are Russian spies, remember Maria Butina, she is not the only one, there are many of her in America that have been embedded into American society for centuries and now their offspring are wearing tshirts at trump rallies saying I would rather be a Russian than a Democrat.

    • Clayton Gunter | September 9, 2020 at 1:42 PM | Reply

      Yeah! Patriots to communism!

    • But we are not burning your businesses to the ground…and we have good jobs too….and we will vote again

  8. Republicans don’t get to claim the patriotic, flag waving, anthem standing high ground ever again until they disavow Donald.

  9. Pete represents everything that is good and decent about America.

  10. Theophilos Mantzanas | September 5, 2020 at 5:41 AM | Reply

    What Trump said about those of us who served reveals his true nature….that of a selfish being with no empathy or sympathy. Fred Trump created an image of himself.

  11. Fox news has now confirmed that Trump made all the statements attributed to him. Trump is the most unamerican President in US history.

      @IncognitoTorpedo Thanks Incognito for taking the time to read the article. However, no one is talking about this hoax any more. They are on to the next hoax of the week, which is the latest book by Bob Woodward, trying to paint President Trump in a negative light. I predict that story will last 3 or 4 days as well. Just like the Atlantic story.

      @Christopher Browne Well, there’s Trump scandal fatigue. Every time you turn around, he’s done something horrible. Woodward has him on tape, so I don’t see how you can call it a hoax. It’s now obvious that he knew how serious the virus was, which means he was lying to the American people about it for months. I mean, c’mon. The Covid body count is The Korean war + Vietnam + Gulf war + Iraq + Afghanistan + 9/11, and then some.

      @IncognitoTorpedo well there is plenty of scandal fatigue, on both sides to be sure. Dr. Fauchi has already debunked the only “controversial” part of the new book, which was that Trump purposely downplayed the virus. Fauchi has already stated that what Trump said in public was the same thing they discussed in private. But I’m not even worried about Bob Woodward. He has been trying to relive his 1972 Watergate scandal days over and over for 50 years. He wrote books on Reagan, both Bushes, and now Trump. None of his books affected the other presidents at all. This one won’t either. Consider this: you seem intelligent and fair minded. Do you believe every single hoax that comes out from the news media each week? Are you aware that the public’s trust in the media is down to 6% in the latest polls?

      @Christopher Browne No, I certainly don’t believe everything I read in the papers or hear over the air. And definitely not everything I hear on social media. However, over the years it’s become clear that some media practice real journalism with standards for their claims, and some media is just propaganda. It’s also clear that all media gets it wrong sometimes. The difference lies in how often that happens, whether or not it always favors the same political side, and if and how the record is corrected. BTW, I don’t think you can minimize Trump’s statements by trying to discredit Woodward. Trump’s on tape. The problem here wasn’t Woodward, it was Trump’s lying to us about Covid.

      @IncognitoTorpedo Well, Doctor Fauchi has already debunked that claim. But let me present you with this. Do you ever wonder why there is a new “scandal” released by the corporate media every few days? Have you seen how a story is presented as a “bombshell” and the media push that narrative really hard, and in a few days it’s either debunked (or the people lose interest), then right on queue they drop that story and release another new “bombshell”. How many times a day did the media say “the walls are closing in on the president” during the two-year Mueller investigation? Then at the end of the two years there was no collusion found–the media dropped that story like a hot potato. Now don’t get me wrong, I am NOT saying Trump is innocent. And he certainly puts his foot in his mouth a lot. So I give him a good portion of the blame for sure. But the way the media frames the narrative it is always, I mean 100% of the time, negative against him. I mean there has not even been ONE positive story about him from the media in 4 years. Despite some legitimate accomplishments he has made, such as dropping NAFTA, negotiations with both Koreas (for which he was nominated a Nobel prize), the Israeli/UAE peace accord (second nomination for the Nobel prize), and criminal justice reform, just to mention a couple. Not one positive news story or any praise from anyone. Doesn’t that strike you as odd? Do you remember when we had a “peaceful” media? Do you remember when that was?

  12. Pete you better run for president again-you’re made for it.

    • Pete is fantastic. He’s the only Democratic candidate who consistently impressed me in the primaries. Now I’d love to see him run for Governor or Senate and get experience on a higher platform before he runs for president. But, from what I’ve seen already, he would make an excellent president, and he can count on my formerly-Republican vote.

      @Pat McCann Team Pete welcomes you with open arms!

    • I would vote for Pete as President!

    I miss Mayor Pete. I’m hoping Biden has a role for him in his Administration.

    • Christopher Browne | September 12, 2020 at 7:22 PM | Reply

      You miss mayor Pete? How so? Are you a resident of South Bend Indiana?

    • GruffChick Productions | September 12, 2020 at 9:56 PM | Reply

      ​@Christopher Browne I enjoyed hearing his ideas. I don’t have to agree with everything he says. I appreciate people that speak intelligently/thoughtfully, and that take time to listen to all sides. I miss seeing interviews, etc with him.

    • Christopher Browne | September 12, 2020 at 11:18 PM | Reply

      @GruffChick Productions oh my bad I thought you meant you missed him as your mayor. Because Pete hasn’t gone anywhere, he is still around you know

  14. John McCain was willing to sacrifice his life for the common good and his country
    Donald Trump was not willing to sacrifice his hair-do to honor the dead

  15. Trump is always proving that he is unamerican through and through.

    • I think your spell checker oopsed………………..”Trump proves over and over that he is a traitor”………..that is what you really meant, right?

    • Traitor to your crime bosses. Wtf where you perverts doing in Vietnam? You commie perverts

    • trump is a fascist. Fascism is a form of far-right, authoritarian ultranationalism characterized by dictatorial power, forcible suppression of opposition, and strong regimentation of society and of the economy. Just give him a chance to prove it.

    • @Dave Stromo cryin’ baby got a poopoo in your shorts?

    • I think he proves to us daily that H E IS A S T U P I D U N I N T E L L I G E N T D O L T !

  16. No one should be surprised by this. He has been telling everyone who he is for years. The real pain for me is all my friends and family that STILL support him. I just can’t understand

    • Christopher Browne | September 8, 2020 at 1:59 AM | Reply

      Because he didn’t say it, that’s why. Yeah, a two year old story with no witnesses in a foreign country. That sure is believable to me!

  17. This Controversy is coming at a Good time, Some States have Early Voting, SURELY,
    there Will be Some Soul Searching, to see Who will Serve the Country Better and Bring so some Normalcy back.

  18. He’s angry, not surprising. When Trump salutes i wanna puke

  19. I’m sorry. It’s the White House that filled with suckers and losers.

  20. Pete Buttigieg will make a great president someday.
