  1. Remember when general Flynn was caught working for Turkey as a foreign agent? Well, he is gone and Trump has filled his position.

    “Painful ignorance.” Pretty much sums up what so many from advanced nations think of most Americans they meet. Trump personifies this to a point that is irreparable! It must be so embarrassing to be American right now!!!!!

    • GORGEOUSGEORGE Americans have been sullying Canada ‘s name by wearing our flag for DECADES. Ignorant mindless capitalists. 🇨🇦😡

    • @GORGEOUSGEORGEAll nations are ignorant of the world and each other cultures.

    • In my own personal experience a lot of people I interacted with from the so called other advanced nations can be very ignorant to.

      mayena I quite agree with you. But America is seen as the global superpower, and their citizens understanding of current and historical global history and geography is, I would suggest, particularly poor compared to other developed nations.

  3. I have no love of any ‘news’ groups.. but this title… Sickly true.

  4. Whether Trump gets impeached or not, some of the damage done is irreversible. The way allies and other nations look at US can’t be changed for another 50-100 years. Another 4 years of Trump is going to make it even worse. We’re losing more and more allies. United Nations, NATO, WTO, etc. Eventually every deal will exclude US. Our new allies will be Russia, Ukraine, Turkey, etc. The next president will be blamed for all of Trump’s mistakes too as he/she has to pick up where he left off. The economy will plummet.

    • Jeff Beck, Maybe in your alternative reality world. Trump has ruined the nation, so just like a typical conservative, you hate America and just want it to suffer. Every bad thing, you think is good and every improvement you think ruins it. How stupid is that logic?

    • @Jeff Beck
      There’s that projection again do you know how stupid “YOU” sound sir?you sound painfully ignorant. If you don’t like progressive policies, then you will be in for a rude awakening. Use some adult phrases, and express yourself with adult words.

      @Jeff Beck wyf? Says who? Oh yeah *Alternative facts” you guys love spewing…

  5. Trump is destroying America aided by the Republicans

      @Jeff Beck You are an insufferable fool.

      What better way for USA Enemies to DISTROY The United States of America then to Rig the Election to get a Greedy, Bigot, Gullible, Racist, Corruptable guy trump “WON” the Election for the ONLY Purpose of DESTROYING The UNITED STATES OF AMERICA from “Ground Zero” from Inside The White House while taking as much MONEY as he & his family can take from “Pay to Play”, “Donation”, “Charities” that he & his family are owners of.

    • PT Barnum was quoted for saying ” there’s a sucker born every minute” Trump was able to find thirty million of them to follow him blindly stumbling over what elephants leave behind!

    • Not this Republican

    • The Demoncrats are bought and paid for by the Chinese communists like the NBA

  6. Oh he is so right and the ignorance of this president . And I know for sure . Our allies . Are saying What the F K is happening

  7. omgsolikevalleygirl | October 10, 2019 at 1:59 AM | Reply

    “almost” painful… “almost”?!

  8. There is no limit to the damage
    this man will do for his own

  9. Trump pulled out of Syria as a stunt to divert focus from his impeachment. He is a traitor and a lying sack of sht. He is guilty of extortion of Ukraine to find dirt on a political opponent.

  10. Trump know he’s going to be removed so he’s sabotaging America. The next president will have so much of Trumps wrong doing to correct.

      @teehud313 I believe you are sorry. Enough said.

    • @Born on Valentine’s day BatizedNineEleven prediction???

    • @Born on Valentine’s day BatizedNineEleven I’m sorry that I entertained mindless brainless Trump minions with no sense of reality or decency. With that said……

      @teehud313 BTW he joined us with Jerusalem and That’s the Done Deal! John 16:13 Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.

    Being an American, living over seas right now, has to be one of my most shame filled experiences about the country I once loved, all due to the arrogant foolishness or greed of so many. Money, power, and politics are overflowing with corruption at a time when our species are dependent on them to survive. I am sick of the answer, deny, deny, deny………put it in the bank………….

  12. t’rump blames the Kurds for not being there to help us in WWII? 🤔
    Yet, is unaware that they lost 10,000 people helping us fight ISIS.
    That is next level dumb right there.
    Which is why his supporters agree with him! 😅😂

    Trump is a Russian asset…it’s perfectly clear !!!

    Trump is not only a traitor and now also an assassin but also a coward because he never did military service . He makes us all sick.

  15. This is not almost painful ignorance; this is totally painful ignorance coupled with total betrayal of America and her future on this planet.

    • How dar he betray the United States, by not having soldiers in a place where they shouldn’t have been! Orange man bad! War good!

  16. I never thought the ” pee tape” would be this powerful.

  17. “A member of U.S. Special Forces serving alongside the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in Syria told Fox News on Wednesday they were witnessing Turkish atrocities on the frontlines.

    “I am ashamed for the first time in my career,” said the distraught soldier, who has been involved in the training of indigenous forces on multiple continents. The hardened service member is among the 1,000 or so U.S. troops who remain in Syria.

    “Turkey is not doing what it agreed to. It’s horrible,” the military source on the ground said. “We met every single security agreement. The Kurds met every single agreement [with the Turks]. There was no threat to the Turks — none — from this side of the border.””

    Politics be damned people. As a U.S. Army Military Police Vet. I ask that you share this and make it spread like a wild fire. When our Special Forces are ashamed of us. That speaks volumes!!!!

  18. Trump and his administration know nothing about honor, integrity or patriotism.

    Donald Trump has abandoned our friends and emboldened our enemies

    Point One: Turkey never helped the Allies in WW2 either.

    Point Two: Trump’s father never helped in WW2 either. He was a war profiteer. Trump’s family legacy is draft dodging and making money at others’ expense.

    Point Three: WW2 is irrelevant here. For over 20 years the Kurds have been fighting alongside the West against Saddam Hussein, Al Qaeda, and ISIS. Trump has *betrayed* that alliance.
