  1. Every Trump-supporter is a lunatic.

    • @Cole Chillen It would be nice if they were responsible enough to look for the facts. They often don’t believe facts. It goes deeper why they cling to him as a savior and don’t see him for what he is. They need external power because the internal strength is lacking. He controls them with fear with him as the savior. And he has contempt for them for believing his lies. Narcissism 101. Father wounds can play a big role in susceptibility to narc control and trauma bonds.

    • Making a statement like this proves you’re ignorant

    • @Lone Wolf Not even a little bit buddy. Everybody who supports Trump is a lunatic, in one way or another. Ignorant, brainwashed, malicious, uneducated, stupid, spiteful – take your pick. But all lunatics in their own way.

    • Kieran Proux You’re absolutely correct but trump is still corrupt and a terrible president

    • Eric Morales I was called a lunatic for voicing anti trump sentiments

    How we miss President Obama.

  3. This entire Trump embarrassment says more about Americans than it does about the man. If there is any chance for redemption, you need to lose this guy and move on.

    • Generally speaking this is true and scary.

    • @notahouse I could not agree more.

    • @Tingle Matthews Most Americans??? Then why didn’t he win the popular vote??? Trump’s a con man. He became a convicted felon over his Trump University scam… People realize what he is at some point, unless they’re total idiots, and get mad at themselves for ever believing anything he said.

    • @Trisha Ann …. I said that most Americans know that Trump is the greatest president ever. In 2016 he was not president. And you are talking about the votes he got in 2016. SMH.

  4. He is so jealous of Obama

    • i loved his year when on Trumps birthday, tiktok kids spanmed him with “All birthdays matter – Happy Birthday President Obama”

    It warms my heart to know that Obama is still running around in Trump’s head kicking over trash cans, spray painting the walls, and pulling fire alarms.. All of which has Trump running around in circles on the White House lawn with his eyes closed, stepping on rakes.😂😄

    • That’s how I always seen it. trump is still thinking about President Obama after almost four years. He blames President Obama for everything that goes wrong. He is deflecting all of his inferiorities onto President Obama. The race card is what he use to lie to himself that he is doing great, without it, he is a big zero. In fact, the race card is what got trump in the presidential seat. And has kept him in that seat where he shows his incompetences everyday.

    • Well said giiirl😂😂😂😂

    • @robbie mcmullen if Trump ever had marbles they were given to him or stolen; then he ran them into the ground. That’s not a good look.

    • robbie mcmullen … you must have used all your brain cells to write this, brain cells that you don’t use when the fat orange megalomaniac can control your mind with such simple words…

      I love that

  6. Thanks for another bad haircut, Mom! NoFirstName | September 9, 2020 at 2:09 AM | Reply

    He has to try and obliterate a real President like President Obama. He isn’t fit to shine President Obama’s shoes.

  7. Cohen hit-the-nail-on-the-head. “Obama is everything Donny could never be”. It really, does explain everything.

    • @Just a PuP trying to Hit 5k Subs Hahahahahaha!! ” Potato “

    • @Niel Troll, be gone pie hole.

      50police “Obamas bbc” what does that mean? You’d prefer to believe trump, a proven compulsive liar, and bj, just about as bad with his u turns and lies, than the bbc? I don’t like the bbc, it’s far from perfect but being left is def not one of their faults. You make me LOL

    • Please share just one thing O” Bummer accomplished in eight years.
      You won’t because you can’t. Trump laughs at his incompetence daily.

    • frances simmonds | September 10, 2020 at 3:49 AM | Reply

      real american OMG are you serious? We’d be here all day. OK, just off the off the top of my head here are a few of Obama achievements which trump has reversed, dismantled, or taken credit for:
      Boosted fuel efficiency for cars. Increased veteran affairs funding, healthcare reform act, secured US agreement on climate change and he WON THE NOBEL PEACE PRIZE in 2009 for his efforts to strengthen international diplomacy….while dump claims to be a president for peace he profits from arms sales and encouraging wars abroad, he bypassed congress and moved to circumvent decades old arms control pact to allow billions in arms to Middle East and Saudi Arabia (a country where they legally crucify people btw) being top customers, leading to US bombs leaving mass casualties in Yemen and creating mass refugees.

  8. “Whether you like his politics or not, you gotta admit Obama is ridiculously cool, funny and smart. And a great orator.”
    “Whether you like his politics or not, you gotta admit Trump is a ridiculously horrible human being. And a sociopath.”

    You can tell Micheal Cohen is running on the high of telling the truth. The feeling of levity when you no longer have to worry about keeping all your lies straight. Good for him

  10. Obama has something that can’t be purchased. The Obama’s have class something Trump will never have.

  11. “He’s all of the things Donald Trump wants to be.”

    Including a natural skin color 👍🏻

    When 3 people who used to be close to you wrote a book about who you are, especially when all the books says the same things, means it’s all true and you can’t deny it

  15. He’s not LIKE a cult leader, he IS a cult leader.

  16. The one good thing trump did is show us the amount of evil people we have in this country

  17. Trump is such a petty man. All he is capable of is destroying what greater men have built.

    • Cathie Ludemann | September 9, 2020 at 5:30 PM | Reply

      That doesn’t apply to only Obama. Trump is destroying what men and women have built for decades, some of it irreplaceable. Trump (and his assembled admin) are erasing America’s past, and destroying for the future.

  18. “His hatred for Barrack Obama is simple. .. he’s black”


  19. motte dreissig | September 9, 2020 at 6:49 AM | Reply

    Worst of all: Obama has an intact family, no scandals, he has a likable personality and he is truly loved by his supporters.

  20. We all knew that. The clown can’t stand it that a black man is better than him.. I MISS YOU OBAMA 😥

    • Trump has devoted good chunk of his miserable life to trash President Obama one he could never measure up.

      I honestly would agree , there haven’t been a real president since Mr. Obama’s term was over. I wish he could have served a third term.
