  1. He needs to be removed immediately. We must show the world who we are. He must go.

      @CONSTANTLY WATCHING Ah yeah, Canada, Greece, that sounds nice! I wish you’ll make it one day! Happier 2021 to you.

    • @Greg M I was about to cite that. Thank you for your expedient knowledge of jurisprudence.

    • More than this needs to be done. After we impeach & convict (which we should do NOW), the media need to point by point, lie by lie, refute with video evidence, official documentation, and sworn testimony all 10,000 + lies Donald Trump has sold his cult so that his cultists can see this fool for what he is, for what every other sane person sees and hears when this evil man lies. All the social media companies should then target his cult members with this refutation. All of the ads on all of the feeds for every one of his cultists will be this video refutation with facts, film, official documents, and sworn testimony so that maybe the cultists can be deprogrammed and finally see this liar for what he is, and so that no Newsmax, no youtube channel, no reddit forum can cover up the truth.

    GOP acting like they didn’t contribute to all this…

    • John Ross Cowan | January 7, 2021 at 1:28 PM | Reply

      Investigate the GOP

    • They catered to Trump and encouraged this Behavior they didn’t speak the truth they kept quiet they were complacent they’re just as guilty

    • If Freedom is not worth fighting for, then nothing is🇺🇸

    • @Jason Wahengbam He was an orange clown before 2016 as well and see what happened … There must be consequences for Donald, otherwise the people will rebel against the whole system when trust is exhausted. Come on now USA and do it right from now on🙏🏼 //Sweden

    • Lady Lindsay was wrongly blaming GA Gov, Secy, Election Officials…

  3. He was fired and must vanish from media to save our nation’s soul

  4. Well, he can’t! He is mentally unstable and unfit for office. He hasn’t worked for weeks.

  5. Stimulus Dragon | January 7, 2021 at 10:33 AM | Reply

    They’ll never do it, they don’t care about anything but themselves and their money.

    • Exactly! Even after election 2016 (which he didn’t mind stealing) there were SO many times/reasons he shoulda been FIRED! They are not gonna do a thing. If they did I would be shocked & amazed at THIS point! Maybe its because a white person got shot? What’s really different now? We had to come to this level of violence? Now, with 2 weeks left yall wanna “consider” impeachment? Do it already! Hypocrites one and all!

    • @yosserc so many people who care? But the same laws that are directed towards minorities and underprivileged communities are still around.. wonder how that makes sense🤔 I don’t doubt that there may be a couple good people, but as long as everyone is in each others pockets and the majority are corrupt; nothing will change. But if you wanna look to the minority in the house to make the situation look better that’s understandable, just saying most of them aren’t for you, me, or anyone else if it doesn’t include money in their pockets.

    • Victoria Taylor | January 7, 2021 at 12:04 PM | Reply

      @yosserc if they really DO care, they will resign because, they know what’s going on now, and they are trying to show Trump they want NO part of this. I’m DONE with this.

    • Victoria Taylor | January 7, 2021 at 12:06 PM | Reply

      @yosserc Resigning is a much STRONGER statement than just sticking around because the ones that stick around, they don’t really care, they’re just trying to stop something they have let get out of control, and are NOW trying to stop it.

    • Victoria Taylor | January 7, 2021 at 12:22 PM | Reply

      @Ronnie J exactly. That’s why I said, there is a STRONGER statement when a person resigns from a position which their in. It’s about INTEGRITY, not money. Money is important, sure enough, we need it to live for the time being, but INTEGRITY, is what’s MOST important when you’re in THAT field of office. Being willing to LEAVE when something is not right, that’s what makes the strongest statement.

  6. The Zombie Whisperer | January 7, 2021 at 10:35 AM | Reply

    Please arrest Trump, Giuliani and Don Jr for this 🙏

  7. He’s a psychopath. That makes him unfit and a threat to our national security.

  8. Trump should be barred from holding any office ever again

      @Carolyn Talbot: Not particularly difficult and it’s completely legal for prison inmates to run for president.

    • jerry bangwaller | January 7, 2021 at 12:17 PM | Reply

      tie him up in court for the rest of his miserable failed life and hand down gag orders un til the trials are finished

    • I think the only way to do that is impeach him for a second time. That’s why doing this is so important.

    • Nadia Silvershine | January 7, 2021 at 3:48 PM | Reply

      @seaskiguy Impeachment takes too long, and Orange Mussolini can still do a lot of damage in 2 weeks.

    • Jo-Erlend Schinstad | January 7, 2021 at 6:35 PM | Reply

      @Nadia Silvershine: Impeachment can be done very quickly when the facts are obvious.

  9. all the sane people already resigned.. you’re left with cowards in the admin. that are too afraid of the bully….

    • Those “sane people” who resigned are not much better than their former boss. Why they stayed silent for so long? This is an example of rats jumping out of the sinking ship.

  10. Why isn’t it realistic to punish trumo in every way??

    If it were Obama…may God help him!!

  11. Pence had to call in the National Guard. That means capitulation of duty by the infant president. That, to me, is a resignation.
    HE. JUST. QUIT. THE. JOB.

    • Precisely!!!

    • Pence needs to be investigated as well because the NG were told to stand down from duties a few hours before all of this kicked in and someone gave that order.??.

    • @Doug Britton absolutely !

    • Alpha Centauri | January 7, 2021 at 12:34 PM | Reply

      @Doug Britton I don’t think it’s very likely that that was pence

    • Wonder Wonderful | January 7, 2021 at 1:21 PM | Reply

      It wasn’t Pence, it was Pelosi that called in the National Guard, and it took awhile to get them employed. Another thing they only arrest 50 people. It was more then 50 people that needed to be arrested. On the BLM peaceful protesters they arrested 400 people, who did nothing compared to what these rioters did. We have a problem in this Country of unequal equality. Trump & family is the corpral of it all.

  12. We need to make an example out of him this is not tolerable in the United States.

    • Jason Wahengbam | January 7, 2021 at 12:02 PM | Reply

      You are right… If we don’t make an example of him… It’s bound to repeat again.

    • timandsue legere | January 7, 2021 at 12:22 PM | Reply

      @Jason Wahengbam I think that some new laws need to be passed and there needs to be something done to the senators like Josh Hawley as well people like this Josh Hawley are waiting in the wings to take up the reigns from trump and people need to be educated and made aware of these power hungry up and commers

    • Jason Wahengbam | January 7, 2021 at 12:25 PM | Reply

      @timandsue legere You are right.. 👌

    • Victoria Taylor | January 7, 2021 at 12:48 PM | Reply

      @Alex Alex but MORE of the power goes to the government. We, the people, only have a MEASURE of power. We are not as powerful as the powers that be, don’t forget that.

    • Victoria Taylor | January 7, 2021 at 12:48 PM | Reply

      @Alex Alex God, allowed them to rule for a time.

  13. It has to be done, the world was watching, the people have lost confidence in our police and security networks, they must remove him right now.

    • @Jamsie and that is what makes me laugh all this rhetoric of communism when their left wing party is not that left compared to other countries and we are doing just fine. Not perfect cause nothing is perfect but at least we care for all our citizens and all have equal chances, not just the rich.

    • ​@PK do you not know what extremists are?? obviously not all center right wingers or center left wingers are the extreme side. but if you compare extremist from both side the most extreme group that the left wing ideology has are communists and the most extreme group that right wing ideology has are literal Nazis. if you think that a communist is just as bad as a literal Nazi is i don’t know what to tell you. also there is a difference between having founders of a movement and having leaders.

    • More than this needs to be done. After we impeach & convict (which we should do NOW), the media need to point by point, lie by lie, refute with video evidence, official documentation, and sworn testimony all 10,000 + lies Donald Trump has sold his cult so that his cultists can see this fool for what he is, for what every other sane person sees and hears when this evil man lies.

      @PK well at least they got met with violence they didn’t have cops taking selfies with them now did they

    • ​@BSinNYC more importantly there has to be some sort of cultural penalty for trump supporters who are still supporting this sociopath. at this point trump supporters and republicans are committing a morale hazard by supporting and spreading misinformation of widespread voter fraud. people like Dave Rubin and Candace Owens who are grifters who spread lies and misinformation on the daily bases. now he is praising and inciting literal riots. people who uses the trump derangement argument are as complicit in the riots as much as the rioters themselves. Republicans like Ted Cruz and Mitch McConnell deserve to have any sort of political credibility that they had revoked from the other senators.

    But he isn’t functioning. He’s golfing, hiding, raging but that’s not functioning in his job.

  15. How can you carry out the duties of the office when you declared war on the United States.

  16. Trump needs to be arrested and charged with inviting that riot in the capital!!! Among other charges!!!

  17. So as long as he is President he can do anything he wants and you won’t do anything. That’s ridiculous

    • Not true, Tina. Checks and balances exists for a reason, look into it.

    • @NEO3 They exist? For everything that has happened up till now? What have I missed?

    • @Live Long And Prosper Worse: On occasion he was dressed too informal while working in the oval office and he was wearing an helmet while biking.

    • fatoba dimeji | January 7, 2021 at 6:12 PM | Reply

      What exactly did he do? We were all here when Hillary Clinton told Biden not to concede under any circumstance. People can protest what they don’t agree with but just that violence is not permitted. And did you condemn the BLM mobs who incited violence the other day? They called them largely peaceful protest and later called to defund the police.

    • @fatoba dimeji Are you serious?

  18. Sharon Bodimeade | January 7, 2021 at 10:42 AM | Reply

    He’s never been able to carry out the duties of his office, he’s just gone along doing as he wanted when he wanted as he has done all of his life

  19. In some way? Not removing him would be the crime .
    A clear and present danger to self and others .

  20. Valerie Bickford | January 7, 2021 at 11:02 AM | Reply

    Stop calling him “a president”. By definition, he is not.
