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

    2. 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.

    1. 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

    2. @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

    1. The only work he has done is to make the rich, richer. Divide our country,insult people,cost honest people their lively hood and incite hatred and violence. Get him out.

    1. 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!

    2. @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.

    3. @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.

    4. @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.

    5. @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.

    1. The Zombie Whisperer and don’t forget Josh Hawley, and Ted cruz and the rest of the enabling republicans

    2. BTW neither Giuliani nor Don Jr. are ‘protected’ by the DoJ letter that says “let’s not persecute a sitting president”
      IT IS NOT a LAW!!!

    3. @Nicola Coppola If Guiliani and Don Jr would be arrested now (which they should), they will be pardonned.

    1. @1harperaj Spot the Brit trying to weigh in on US politics. Why don’t you learn Ukrain, the home of the strongman leader.

    2. @1harperaj Yes. NPD/ASPD are so often co-morbid the DSM should just combine them already. They don’t call them “malignant” narcissists for nothing.

    3. @Willliam Fish So funny that as I speak Russian, Ukrainian, Spanish and Arabic as too my native tongue English. What language do you converse in?

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

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

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

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

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

    1. 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.

  2. 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.

    1. 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.??.

    2. 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.

    1. @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

    2. @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.

  3. 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.

    1. @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.

    2. ​@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.

    3. 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 what-aboutism, no false equivalence, no nonsense spewed by Newsmax, some youtube channel, or reddit forum can cover up the truth.

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

    5. ​@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.

    1. When he has functioned he is not able to carry out duties of the office. The GA phone call. The DC yesterday issue.

    2. As Anderson Cooper said, (I believe it was him) “He’s fighting to keep the job that he’s not even doing!”

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

    1. @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.

    2. 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.

  5. 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
