    Resign trumpet and take your family with you!

  3. This POS didn’t give these innocent American victims a ‘Choice’ He held information just to make sure it wouldn’t effect the stock market and his billionaires!!!

    • Yeah because we know the stock market doesn’t affect regular Americans. It’s only billionaires in the stock market. Dude the stock market affects all of us who have pensions and retirements. Seriously???

    • I think the losers are everyone who believes this BS CNN is selling to you. Do you know that more people watch the cartoon Network than CNN because everyone has realized they give us nothing but lies. 2 anonymous sources said Trump defamed the military 25 on the record sources said what these two people said is a lie. If you still believe those two anonymous sources it’s only because you want to believe a lie. What is matter with you people

    • MrpastorC
      Nobody’s selling us anything that we can hear it with our own ears, maybe you should pull trumps unit out of yours, you might be able to hear

    • A separation of civil and military rank is useless; create the world you want, General, and diversify your own chain of command!

    • @Alvina Kawaihae what?????

  4. I like presidents who don’t call our fallen Americans “losers” and “suckers.”

    • Randy Couch
      Yeah I know and that’s scary, actually everybody has to watch Fox News so that they can comment on their absurdity a lot of their viewers are just people that use it as a reference source they don’t really take what Fox News says as reality

    • j t
      Hey Conrad everybody knows that the Russian trolls are trying to interfere in the election I think that’s what you are, I think that’s what you’re doing, I think you’re a Russian troll

    • j t
      Yeah your YouTube account isn’t even six months old you’re definitely a Russian troll hey Comrade how’s the borscht today?

    • @Startrek1965 I’m a vet. He never said that. Its democratic election year disinformation based on anonymous sources. Do your own homework before you believe anything these pathological liars put out. You are being inundated with blatant propaganda.

    • landfill victory yes I agree

  5. I still cannot understand (maybe it’s a good thing?) how anyone can be so hateful towards the Military! I mean. It makes my mind explode. That is beyond despicable.

      Niki T the kind who think more of foreign nasties like putin and Xi you know…Traitors like tromp

    • EASY when the Trump family history is avoiding military service in two countries over a 140 years period .

    • It’s the American military, you know, the one that’s waged endless war on much of the third world for over 70 years. The one that used nuclear weapons against civilians. The one that used chemical weapons in Vietnam and Cambodia.
      The one that lied to start a war in Iraq. The one that bombed N Korea back to the stone age.
      The list goes on but you begin to understand the resentment.

    • @Jim Battersbee Are you and AMERICAN ?Japan attacked us and murdered a million people in Asia , TORTURED ALLIED POWs BURNED alive American pows . The Firebombing of Tokyo was 10 times worse than the Atomic bombs ,Agent orange was to clear the forest not a chemical weapon . Korea was never bombed into the stone age , General LEMAY said he could bomb North Vietnam into the Stone age . he was the General who oversaw the firebombing of Tokyo and the Atomic attacks , he was the first to use napalm in Germany , my USAF hero. if General Lemay was let loose on the communist in north Vietnam that war would have been over in one year ,, ,, you sack of trumps dung ,.

  6. Don’t forget about the “Patriots Confederate treasonous” Trump followers.

    • @Oakley Moodie you forgot about the 25 million illegal immigrants that are by and large conservatives!

    • @MrpastorC OK. Thanks for agreeing.

    • @MrpastorC The greatest enemy we face is the fear in our own head, the second greatest enemy is the lack of a father to help us overcome the first one.”

      Choosing Trump as your father figure was your 1st mistake.

    • Hillary now there’s a story that is so outrageous running around free today in this country with no arrest on it at all, oh well they’re Democrats handcuffs don’t fit criminal like that.

    • @Mairice Wilson amen sister just like the Mueller team unanimously wiped their phones so the investigators couldn’t get the messages they were hiding!!

  7. *are the First Responders at 9 /11 who died . . . are they ‘suckers’ and ‘losers’ too . . . POTUS ?*

  8. Maj. General Paul Eaton, Warrior of Light. Thank you Sir for your Impeccable word and example during your Lifetime Military Career to defend The United States Constitution, People and our Values of Respect and love for humanity. Enrique Lopez, US Army Infantry Sergeant Retired OIF 1 ARCOM “V”.

    “We’re getting along with the Taliban.” LOL.

  10. Trump is like plutonium/Agent Orange for the United States

  11. Love the voteVet ads! How 40 percent of Americans support this loser is mind boggling.

  12. “We don’t negotiate with terrorists.” George W. Bush

    “We’re getting along very well with the Taliban. And that’s a good thing.” Donald J. Trump

    Said by both as presidents of the US.

  13. I like presidents who don’t destroy America

    • ME TOO!! Pelosi is correct for calling this virus The Trump Virus. He knew about it weeks before admitting that it was dangerous. You can even say he knew about it MONTHS before admitting it was deadly. And here we sit with going on a quarter of a million Americans dead.

    • @RedondoBeach2 and what war were you in 1234 which one?

    • @Mairice Wilson I’m not the one asking to be Commander In Chief. Have you served, Mairice? Don’t ask questions you aren’t willing to first answer yourself. If you did serve, what branch of service? What years? What organizations? What was your MOS? What campaigns were you involved in? You opened that door so go ahead and walk through it first.

    • US Army 13 a 10, 91 B20 artillery and medic Germany, 1968 1970. Cold war with 8-inch self propelled Howitzer that were capable of firing nuclear artillery shells 2 stop if there were a Russian invasion. Volunteer

    • @Mairice Wilson I’ll give the benefit of the doubt. I appreciate your service. The same sentiment does not go to “bone spurs” Don.

    This Proud Army Veteran Despises Evil, Failed, Un Patriotic, Impeached Trump!

  15. Trump doesn’t understand how taxpayers feel. He’s never been one



  18. how could you still be for a man after him calling your son a loser

    • I think initially it was looking at the rest of the room and realising the next appointee was only going to make a bad situation worse.

  19. The military may have to excort this failed president out of the White House.

  20. I’ll vote for an ice cube outside during a hot summer in July before I vote Trump… 🤦🏽‍♂️
