  1. No amount of “hope” is going to undo the damage that has been caused to the country, it’s reputation and the future.

    • @Joseph Whisnant How exactly is he “cleaning up corruption”? Give an example.

    • @Bill Fauber I agree and just like Dems did Trump will not be removed

    • @Respect/Walk Removing trump was not the main objective, everyone knew from the beginning Moscow Mitch would not allow an honest Senate trial, therefore the objective was to document the crimes. The biggest difference here is Clinton had an honest trial whereas Trump owns the Senate and DOJ literally and they’re as corrupt so an honest trial is not possible in Trumps case.

      @Respect/Walk everyone makes mistakes including presidents. But Trump is lying and at the same time giving America the finger. What he is doing now is only the tip of the iceberg. He has so much to hide and you poor souls don’t see it or simply trying to ignore it. It goes so deep most people can’t imagine. I feel sorry for the children and grands of the future. Anyway we know the Lord Jesus Christ will be back soon.

    • The country has always been divided, the only difference is that now the divisions are being exposed to the light. “…the axe is being laid at the root of the tree..” (Matthew 3:10)

  2. 49% of Americans want Trump to be thrown out, why not 49% of repubs?

  3. The only coup in play here is the GOP one.
    As they’re fully intending to turn the US into a dictatorship ruled by them and using the Trumps as “Puppet-kings” to keep the Cult in check and it as “enforcers” to curb the rest of America that is against them.

    They are doing this right now, in this very moment.

    They need to be stopped immediately.

  4. When 527 protest all over the country, today, will take place in favor of impeachment and removal tells the truth how the country feels about this illegitimate president.

  5. Hardly, we have the same or more support for impeachment than nixon or clinton did. What a weird narrative

    The Republithugs are the onslaught of Fascism.
    If DJT has nothing to hide why the Republithugs preventing the testimony of witnesses.?

    • Frederick Bullard wow a democrat calling a republican a fascist talk about the pot calling the kettle black.

    • @Dale Boxsell Bring back decency and legality – blue and red do not matter

    • It’s completely disingenuous of Republicans who called for a “fair and open trial” when it was in preliminary fact-finding mode (i.e. not a trial). But now that there will be an actual trial in the Senate, they don’t want to put all the facts on the table, like they were clamoring for just last month. Sorry Republicans, but Trump is clearly hiding his guilt with such a bad faith argument, and you’re going along for the cognitive dissonance ride.

  7. “However [political parties] may now and then answer popular ends, they are likely in the course of time and things, to become potent engines, by which *cunning, ambitious, and unprincipled men will be enabled to subvert the power of the people and to usurp for themselves the reins of government,* destroying afterwards the very engines which have lifted them to unjust dominion.”
    ― George Washington

      Real Talk76 The GOP has really fallen into the category described by George Washington.

    • @Cinnamon Crunck Yessirr, the founders tried to warn us…“There are more instances of the abridgment of the freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachments of those in power than by violent and sudden usurpations.”
      ― James Madison

    • Perfect

    • @Sam Houghton Trump, Mitch McConnell and Lindsay Graham are the poster children for that quote from George Washington! But the entire GOP supports voter suppression so we are on the precipice of EVERYTHING the founders tried to guard against.

      Absolutely. Happening right now.

    The audacity of Republican Fascism, just fulfill Putin’s wishes, a show trial without witnesses!!

    GOP is a joke.

  10. *Trumpty Dumpty Need To Go*

    Vote …. attend an impeachment rally ..

  12. America has a 40% sleaze factor. 🇺🇸💩🇺🇸

  13. Joe, Mika, and Guests,
    Quit acting like 50% of Dems are = to 50% of Republicans! The Republicans are only about 39% of the country.

    Who cares about polling results, or facts? Your democracy is slowly dying of a cancer called GOP!! Sad!

  15. More of a reason to not have the electoral college

    • Bob Smith The electoral college was instituted as a compromise to make sure that slavers and landowners would not be drowned out by larger, poorer populations. It was not based on anything fair and square.

    • @Pontus Ekholm and because the founding fathers thought that the public wasn’t smart enough to elect their leader

    • @Bob Smith that’s exactly what the college does, is change the rules.

    • Rory Cannon Yes, which is not surprising. They were aristocrats and slave owners, it took a long time for the political establishment to change their view on whether or not African Americans, women and LGBT people should be treated like humans too. Thank God the founders made the Constitution amendable and wrote their reasoning behind their choices, that way we can have intelligent discussions about the opinions of these wise but fallible humans and realize what makes sense and what doesn’t.

      Founding a country on the basis of ”We the people” and reconciling that with the EC which gives more political power to just 22% of the population right now was just ridiculous.

    • @Pontus Ekholm even more ironic is that in the original electoral college, the people didnt even had a vote. the electorals made up their own minds

    Does the President has the courage to investigate His own family?

  17. Moscow Mitch is the real traitor in this equation.

  18. Can we FINALLY start talking about the real problem: FOX “News?”
    “48% of AMerricans think that… ” No, they don’t think, they’ve been TOLD, by the rt-wing propoganda machine. We all know this, yet you guys keep discussing polls as if Americans are basing their decisions on facts. SOMETHING MUST BE DONE, or things will never change. Trump is not the problem. He’s just a symptom.

    • Thank God you like FOX News to.

    • He is feeding the symptom.

    • photonrayswaves | December 17, 2019 at 4:30 PM | Reply

      Fox News should be required to register as a foreign agent or better yet shut down completely. Rupert Murdoch is not an American, Fox News is propaganda that makes RT look fair and balanced and we shouldn’t have to allow foreign press use our airwaves to manipulate our elections and our people…and Trump lol. We are allowing foreign agents to dismantle our democracy and turn us into an racist outlaw oligarchy like Russia is by lying to their viewers.

    • My god Photonray I think Aliens are also involved.” Lions and tigers and bears”

    • @Walter Holzer too.

  19. Putin likes to go shopping when democracies are on sale.

  20. The Democratic lead House of Representatives is called “The Democrats” while the republican led senate is called “The Senate”. Why is that? 🤔
