  1. Donald Trump thinks people are here to serve him. It does not occur to him to give back, because he doesn’t understand why anyone would do that.

    • @Terry Mitchell like masks help … and Republicans are racist… both absurd… both leading to violence and shaming…lol
      The yellow sword is coming… put on your armor you are naked…. hahhah

      @Blind C75 Yes masks help, only a complete moron like you would not believe that, but judging by the rest of your comment you are indeed that moron.😂🤣😅

      @Blind C75 Oh and I see another racist right-wing group was just arrested for planning a real domestic terrorist attack. Are all republicans racist? No, but are most of them? Yes, yes they are.😎

    • Hey communists, this is Gallop, who hates Trump. Your fake news won’t tell you the truth. In 16’ there were 26 national polls in the last month of which 10 had Trump losing by double digits. Of the remaining 16 all but 2 had Trump losing by outside the margin of error. RCP and 538 are citing polls that are hot trash.

      A Record 56% of Americans Say They Are Better Off Today Than They Were Four Years Ago Under Obama-Biden. Gallop 10/8/2020. In a FREAKING pandemic!

      Historically speaking, this bodes very well for President Donald Trump as he seeks reelection. President Barack Obama in 2012, was at 45% percent. President George W. Bush is 2004 — in October —at 47%. Former President George H.W. in 1992 was at 38% when he lost. But in 1984, when former President Ronald Reagan was seeking reelection — he won 49 states in a landslide defeat of his Democrat opponent — the number was down at just 44%.

      When Trump gets removed and republicans lose all “power” in the house and senate at the same time it will be a green light for globalists, CCP and the traitor Americans that bred and fed these monsters to take over completely. America will be over. Many will perish as the new 5g technology replaces them with robots and artificial intelligence. There will be no need for you anymore and no ones gonna just pay you for nothing to keep you around for nothing. So go ahead and vote for the patsy muppets Biden and Harris.

    From a distant shore.
    THE ORANGE DONALD DOESN’T DISAPPOINT.

    Just when you think the orange Donald can’t go any lower … he does.
    When it comes to appalling behaviour he plumbs new depths.
    In this apparently effortless endeavour he doesn’t disappoint.
    His comments about Gold Star families are reprehensible.

    • @Aeleks Johnson Since you say you don’t understand why anyone could support him
      I would suggest you watch some of his rallies. ie do some research instead of just believing what the hate media tell you.

      He’s OUT. And he knows it that’s why he has had a major nervous breakdown. He exposed the top 3% for their ideology of perpetually maintaining an underclass without a livable wage. THEY want him OUT sooo he’s DON e! We are not a dictator country and if he doesn’t go too far this Government will not put him in jail. He only has to worry about the federal charges out of the Southern District Of New York. THAT’S WHY HE FLED TO FLORIDA. They are moving in on him like a bit*ch. 🔥HEAT🔥. The arm of the law is long. He only needs to stay in the WH two more years running down the Statute Of Limitations on his most egregious crimes. But he couldn’t pull it off since he has an untreated mental illness: Sociopathic Narcissism. I feel sorry for him. And I grieve for this country. But we know who ALL the loony’s are… the Best thing he did was to embolden them to reveal themselves. And they are in some of our highest institutions!

    • +Roger Kleemann Totally showing disrespect for American war veterans and their families, creepy!

    • @Aeleks Johnson He never said he caught covid from gold star families. He was explaining how he has to meet people. There are events he doesn’t want to back away from and meeting with gold star families was such an obvious event he would want to attend but inevitably puts him at risk. It’s disgusting but typical that msnbc twists this into saying Trump blamed gold star families.

    Today trump refused to debate-

    Made false claims about gold star families that tested negative before those events-

    Now he is threatening our leaders-

    He also made not mention about an official being kidnapped ..

    Trump is a terrorist now…the cia and fbi will be involved.

    • You are a liar. The debate commission changed the agreed to rules to protect sleepy Joe without talking to the campaigns!

    Trump does not realize that he is a public servant. He works for the people of the US, not that everybody works for him.

      Wake up: He never worked for the American people and he will never do. And he knows what he is doing.

  7. Trump and his lackey Barr has started their warpath to create chaos in this country.

    • Tessmage Tessera 👍

    • @Ash Roskell HE’LL BE FOUND DEAD QUICKER LEAVING AMERICA. AND NOBODY WHO HAS A PENDING CASE CAN’T LEAVE.

    • “His government was constantly in chaos, with officials having no idea what he wanted them to do, and nobody was entirely clear who was actually in charge of what.”

      “He procrastinated wildly when asked to make difficult decisions, and would often end up relying on gut feeling, leaving even close allies in the dark about his plans.”

      “His “unreliability had those who worked with him pulling out their hair,”… ”

      “This meant that rather than carrying out the duties of state, they spent most of their time in-fighting and back-stabbing each other in an attempt to either win his approval or avoid his attention altogether, depending on what mood he was in that day.”

      This sounds like Trump and his administration.

    Mr. Khan, God bless your son for his sacrifice and God bless your family for your loss and your willingness to stand up for your son’s service and sacrifice.

    • What this family had to go through on a public scale after loosing the son is unbelievable…and it all stemmed from a loony commander in chief & president who seems to hate American soliders….truly bizarre human

    • @Charlie if he’s an narcissist that would make sense if he hates soldiers , that condition always wants the spotlight. Actually when the Hitler in chief came back from the hospital and walked in really tough that was also fitting. I never seen someone so warrior like remove his mask in that fashion , ranks up there with hardcore Polynesian , Aztec, Zulu, Viking, Mongolian warriors!!! I think he preparing his game face for holloween or a High ranking SS officer

    • Pinglino It all clearly goes back to Vietnam war & him dodging the draft with fake illness. Clearly he felt rich men had no place doing a poor mans task which I can understand….but he literally still views soldiers as trash & he’s on record at Arlington cemetery asking “what was in it for them” literally trying to understand why soldiers even exist, disgusting man & that’s before the russian bounties saga

  11. Trump doesn’t know anything including himself..

  12. Trump never cared about his own parents, so why on earth would he care about the parents of America’s fallen.

    Trump tried to rewrite his father’s will in 1990 to strengthen his position as the only person to inherit his father’s estate. But Fred Trump foiled the attempt, as he feared his son could strip his estate and use it to rescue his own failing businesses, The Times reported, citing depositions and other documents it obtained.

    Trump had sent his father a document that would make him the sole executor of the estate and protect his portion of his inheritance from creditors and his impending divorce settlement.

    Despite his father’s will having already been written by a top real estate lawyer, Trump had his own lawyers draft a new copy and sent it to his father in December 1990. Trump sent his father the 12-page document and asked him to sign it immediately. Fred Trump, then 85 and terminally ill, was in the hospital, had not seen the document before, and saw the move as an attempt to go behind his back.

    He showed the document to his daughter Maryanne Trump Barry, a federal judge at the time. She recalled in her deposition that he told her, “This doesn’t pass the smell test,” The Times reported.

    Then Fred Trump had lawyers draft new documents stripping his son of sole control of the estate. Notes from those lawyers show that Fred Trump’s instructions were to “protect assets from DJT, Donald’s creditors.”

    Sworn depositions made by unnamed members of the Trump family during a dispute over Donald Trump’s nieces’ and nephews’ inheritance were obtained by The Times. Those depositions showed that Fred Trump believed the document his son wanted him to sign would put his vast business empire at risk.

    Had his father signed the document, which he did not, it also would have given Trump sole control over his dying father’s estate..

    Fred Trump was, according to the sworn Trump family testimonies obtained by The Times, angered by his son’s attempt to rewrite his own will without his prior knowledge or consent..

    If Trump would do this to his own father and siblings, what do you think he would do to the country and the American people?
    If Trump’s own father and siblings couldn’t trust him, why on earth should the American people trust him?
    When it comes to Trump, I’ll take the word of Trump’s own sister, who has known him his entire life?  She knows him better, and longer, than anyone alive today. In the released audio of Trump’s sister Maryanne Trump Barry, she describes Trump as being among other things, unprepared, a brat, and cruel.
    “It’s the phoniness of it all. It’s the phoniness and this cruelty. Donald is cruel,” Barry told her niece.

    “All he wants to do is appeal to his base,” Barry said. “He has no principles. None. None. And his base, I mean my God, if you were a religious person, you want to help people. Not do this.” 

    She also made it clear that she was still upset by how Trump chose to celebrate himself at their father’s funeral in 1999.

    “During that ceremony, Donald spoke more about his own accomplishments than his father’s life,” Maryanne said..

    “Donald was the only one who didn’t speak about Dad,” she said. She told Mary that “I don’t want any of my siblings to speak at my funeral. And that’s all about Donald and what he did at Dad’s funeral. I don’t know. It was all about him.”

  13. A NARCIST is a NARCIST.
    NO EMPHATI, NO FEELING.

  14. My condolences to the father who lost his beloved son to us policy only to get attacked by the fraud in chief.
