  1. Trump is the uncle the rest of the family threatens to boycott Thanksgiving dinner over, because he can’t help going on tirades about minorities or pass up cracking a joke about breast meat to his pre-teen niece. He is simply incapable of saying the right thing, period.

      Stop beating around the bush…. just say Orange man bad

      And America elected him to lead her. Who says America isn’t a sick, diseased nation of evil racist cretins?

    • Diogenes69 Wesley 🤔🤔 true

      Trump is a Russian agent, who’s trying to cause a race war, while enjoying himself immensely by tormenting minorities, in every way he can. America… you elected this monster. Don’t say with a straight face that you aren’t racist too. Nobody believes you.

    • @Diogenes69 Wesley Not sure if you have been keeping up with the news but the Russiagate coup attempt was a lie the entire time. Mueller found NOTHING.

      MSNBC has been selling you nothing but lies as they are now. Wake up already. You guys are letting the TV tear the States in half. It was so blatantly obvious it was a lie from the start. How naive a fool must one be to buy such a dumb story?

      Time to grow up and think for yourself.

    trump visiting Ohio is like Hitler visiting a concentration camp to wish people well. He has no intention to implement gun law, he doesn’t give a feck about anyone but trump! 🤢

    • Yeah, because banning something totally works. Say doesn’t America have a problem with illegal drugs, illegal trades, and let’s all remember how well Prohibition went.

    • You do know the Ohio shooter was an Elizabeth Warren supporter right

      You couldn’t ve say it any better.
      Hail DRUMF.

  3. Trump revealiing his main campaign tactic for 2020. He’s going to exclude ‘Fake Media’ from his activities and events and do the media productions with his own crew. Going to turn what’s left of his Presidency into a (manipulated & fake) reality TV show.

  4. “Keep us in your Rolodex.” I love that she said that.

  5. Tony Schwartz, the ghost writer for Trump’s book “The Art of the Deal”:

    “Lying is second nature to him. More than anyone else I have ever met, Trump has the ability to convince himself that whatever he is saying at any given moment is true, or sort of true, or at least ought to be true.
    He said that Trump had no ideology or beliefs, except that he should prevail in the end.

    “Trump’s temperament and his habits have hardened with age.” Schwartz said. “He was always cartoonish, but compared with the man for whom I wrote The Art of the Deal 30 years ago, he is significantly angrier today: more reactive, deceitful, distracted, vindictive, impulsive and, above all, self-absorbed.”
    “Every American ought to be concerned about his character.” Schwartz said.

  6. Like Beto, I feel so fed up! This orange spawn of satan needs to go back to the hellhole from whence he came. How DARE he play at being the leader of the American people when he could care less about us.

  7. Didn’t he do the same thing to the mayor of Puerto Rico after a hurricane devastated that island ?

      Oh you mean the corrupt mayor

    • Blink Once on Sunday! | August 8, 2019 at 9:40 AM | Reply

      @Carlos Carlos Well, I won’t comment on the governor’s actions during that crisis, but either way, Trump’s words and deeds at the time were extremely antagonistic towards Puerto Rico as a whole, not just the governor.

    • Are you sure it wasn’t those pesky Russians? LMAO!

  8. you reap what you sow, what comes around goes around, karma, wrath. pick one- its gonna come in the end, you can bank that 1%.

  9. Trump doesn’t have the capacity to feel empathy pity or sorrow, all he is about is garnishing his celebrity and making it all about him! “so whats new”

    Hope she checked to see if her watch was still there

    Psychopaths, like Trump, create chaos and havoc wherever they go. They are like a big ship going too fast in a small harbor that creates a wake of destruction. Educate yourselves on psychopaths. Google the PCL-R by Dr. Robert Hare.

  12. I often comment on what is happening in America. This is the last time. Dayton and El Passo may I send my sympathy to you all and having heard the wise and measured responses from your dignatories can only admire you.
    There is much discussion about Trumps rhetoric but I would ask America if you think these wise measured remarks would have had the least influence on men like Hitler, I don’t think so. you can dissect Trump’s remarks and his intentions till the cows come home, Trump has his agenda and is cold to any appeal to decency and normality. Get rid of him he is evil.

  13. Too bad Trump didn’t end up in Toledo. Dayton would have been much happier.

  14. He didn’t like what they Mayor said because he’s a big man baby, POS.

    What did she ask of him that was soooo offensive?

    Do something about the slaughter was too much to ask?

  15. Mayor Whaley is a thoughtful, level-headed leader. Dayton is fortunate to have her.

    • She could take a few speech lessons though. I hate Trump, and got triggered by her response in that first clip. I can totally see why he flew off the hook, not that that’s that hard.

  16. Nan Whaley is what a true leader is all about, real backbone, as opposed to the jello spines of republican senators

  17. It is not a biparttisan issue. if it were we would have legislation banning of ak-47 and ALL assault weapons…period. that would be bipartisan.

  18. The orange POS is the cause of the violence
    Then visits the crime scene…
    He is truly Lucifer in the flesh.

  19. The Trump Presidency; a flightless affair that never took off, with the pilot just winging it, heading for a crash landing. Faux News/Putin: co-flight controllers for the Apprentice President flight simulation!

  20. U.S. formerly projected power. Trump projects weakness, destroys American power.
