    1. Nope, not a chance. The GOP have sold their souls to the devil and sold out the American people. So long as they hold the Senate, Trump is shielded. The narcissistic personality of the President is easily controlled. America’s adversaries (Putin and Jinping) pretty much have full reign of world, and apparently, U.S. affairs. God help the USA.

    2. The GOP has had the chance at the impeachment trial to remove trump, and only one had the guts to vote! ! The rest of them all defended trump! It’s too late now! YOU the American people are left to save your country and be the patriots that the coward GOP and the W.H enablers cannot be! Vote and save your country before it’s too late!🌊🌊🌊🌊💙💙💙💙💙💙💙🙏🌈

  1. Where’s all the outrage from the NATIONALIST that claim to LOOOOVE our troops and the flag so much!🖕

    1. no where to be found right now. they’re all in hiding trying to come up with a reason to blame it on someone else.

    2. YEAH’ A KNEE! THE FLAG! HA’ TRUMPS FULL OF DOG S#!Г* THIS IS A DIRTY’ FILTHY GUY- TRUMPTERS BETTER KNOW THIS IS THE END OF TRUMP & HIS GAMES “VOTE” VOTE’ VOTE’ WHEN POLICE MURDER LIKE WE WERE FORCED TO WATCH “GEORGE FLOYDS MURDER” ITS OUT OF CONTROL’ HAS BEEN’ & ALL HIS FLUNKIES ARE RUNNING FOR COVER! TRUMP WONT GO OUT ALONE! OUR MILITARY’ OUR US CITIZENS’ DREAMERS’ WHITES THERES ”NO WHITE PRIVILEGE” 75′ YR. OLD WHITE MAN “ATTACKED” BY WHO ? OKKKK. BELIEVE THAT S#!Г* IF YOU WANT TO.

    3. In a corner of their homes, with fingers in their ears, rocking back and forth, saying “it’s fake news, it’s fake news, it’s fake news.”

  2. 🤬Republicans “act” like they are “regretful” over Trump & THEY STILL BETRAY BIPARTISANSHIP! STILL!!

    1. @Steven Williams Made up fake liberal s***, I’m not gonna wast my time on some made up stuff that some body who hates trump made up hahaha nice try though hahaha👏🏽

    2. @Steven Williams Need (REAL) proof. Like the Russian Collision What ever happened to that fake news? Hahaha nice try

    1. @Terry Tater but here you are watching it too….btw…progressives don’t support trump…nor do they think media us fake

    2. to be fair. they didn’t lie about it. they just never told the families of their dead troops.

    3. yes it’s simple our media is controlled and fed by a few….. So turn it off….. and all is well

  3. Imagine if President Obama had the same cozy relationship and love affair with Osama bin laden as Trump has with Vladimir Putin.

    1. Ha ha ha, its Not Funny, Bring OUR SOLDIERS HOME, ASAP UNTIL President TRUMP EXISTS to the LEFT of STAGE

    2. @Agathac Cheb I bet you have not had a good nights sleep since Nov 2016 . Laying there thinking how Trump will surprise you the next day with some good news for us

    3. @European American you are dead wrong . I sleep good every night. I would be a moron and a fool to let anyone let alone a president who doesn’t know me and will never know and I will never know him or meet him steal a moment of my God given life and joy. I don’t care who the president is none of them will put food on my table if I don’t work hard. I care about the one who holds my life in his hands and knows everything detail about me and cares for me and knows my needs. That’s my father in heaven. I don’t care who the president is whether a Republican or Democrat. Neither of them will determine how I live my life or provide my needs. Maybe I would care a little bit if he were my father .

  4. How many laws is this system going to let trump and his cronies break, I’m beginning to think trump and his gang truly are above the law.

    1. Don’t forget that the Russians still have the GOP emails that they HAVE NOT released, does putin have them by their balless scrotums?

  5. Over at Fox, they’re in total denial. They’re attacking the New York Times, even though coverage is near universal. You can’t fix stupid.

    1. @debbie savage i would actually jump a plane to see the Trumps rumps getting booted all the way to Trump tower

    2. This isn’t stupidity. It’s a conscious choice. Fox has decided what the message they want to send is, and that’s the message they send.

    3. They are 10% News, and 90% Propaganda and those fools drinking that drama are all sadly misinformed and unfortunately on the wrong side of this fight for democracy

  6. Funny, how Trump won’t wear a mask to save thousands of American lives, or state Black Lives Matter to help heal racial divisions and tensions in our Nation, won’t protect our Nation’s most valuable resource, our men and women in uniform. Insults our intelligence agencies.
    Funny, how he protects Putin, Kim, and Chinese.
    Just saying

    1. If Trump decides to wear a mask, he will lose more of his dwindling base. Perception to Trump (and those like him) is more important than reality.

    1. Dixie Ten Broeck true! Trouble is that all campaign finances are suspect…corruption does not like bright lights. …also avoiding taxes is a national pastime…hence …all the money “ laundering”.

  7. Who un the would Trump didnt know about. He is Anti American. God bless our soilders. He is bad his a dictater.

    1. @Kevin McNeil The fact you’ve edited your post and it still contains several spelling and grammatical errors, and misses a lot of punctuation, is a bit of a concern.

      Since Trump has espoused the US getting out of several military engagements and basically retreating from being a world influencer, why does the military need such large funding? I haven’t heard the Democrat’s plan for the military but it seems strange to boost funding for something you’re trying to use less.

      As for Obama ‘slashing the crap out of the military budget’ – have you looked at US Military spending over the past 20 years? In 2008, Bush’s last year, the US Military spending was $622B. In 2009, which was Obama’s first year, it was $668.5B. It increased each of Obama’s first 3 years – peaking at $711B in 2011. So, that’s an increase of 90 Billion dollars compared with the highest level of Bush’s term. From there it decreased again, back down to $600B in 2016. That’s still higher any point under Bush, with the exception of his last year.

      I will also point out that military spending as a proportion of GDP has actually *fallen* under Trump. The lowest level under Obama was 3.21% of GDP, in 2016. That’s down from 4.66% in 2010. Up to 2018 (which is all I can get stats for), the highest under Trump is 3.16% of GDP – less than Obama.

      So, the evidence does not back up your argument – in fact, it supports the opposite. The Democrats have increased military spending compared with Republicans over the last 20 years, both in raw numbers and as a proportion of the economy.

  8. Guy literally talks to the russians more than he does the democrats. Im sure that will make Republicans happy for some reason

    1. European American You’ve yet to say anything valid, like blaming NYT. This further let’s me know your range of intelligence! Suggestion! Go back to school, learn some history, civics, government, etc., then comment on YouTube & other social media platforms!

    2. @European American European American, huh? Nice screen name. You’re not a White supremacist by any chance, are you?

  9. Trump probably called Putin to ask him if it was true and Putin said “No”, and so that is good enough for trump.

  10. America is in deep trouble. There is a clip somewhere where he said he doesn’t read his briefing.This is scary.This is your Military. How can he not be removed.?
