  1. Stop expecting anything like empathy from this pathological narcissist.

  2. 45 is the biggest traitor the USA has seen since Nixon. He is a dangerous lunatic.

    • @Karaoke Star both candidates were poor choices, America has far, far better people with integrity and honor than what we’ve been fed over the past several elections – but the system is so corrupt, it smothers out those who are better in place for those who are complicit and tainted by the blight of our broken system of Govt.

    • Mike – What are the chances that Trump wins. If you go on Facebook, you only see lunatics posting conspiracies. What if the polls are wrong and Trump wins.

    • @Karaoke Star there were no less than 42 assassination plots against Hitler by his own regime, for they saw the monster he had become…
      leave it to the constitutionalists and oath-keepers – or members of the families of the +200,000 Americans who have died because of his incompetence to seek bloody justice.

    • Mike – It only needed a few Republican Senators to vote for more witnesses at the Senate trial. The crazy level of propaganda that you get on Fox News. The problem is much bigger than Trump.

    • @Karaoke Star …yes, it’s not Trump destroying this nation, but all of his enablers who are riding on his coattails.

  3. Trump is VOID of everything………… FIRE THE LIAR in November

    • His greed fills every available space. No room for anything else.

    • Yeah, we want a President that comes by and rubs my back and stuff, not one that gets stuff done. Vote for Biden, he feels you.

    • The United States Govt has grown soft, the USA needs to bring back execution for traitors and corrupt officials,
      Barr and Trump are at the top of that list.
      Trump will be remembered as a monster. Trump lied while we died.
      US Military Vet, SoF.

    • I used to be opposed to imprisoning elder statesmen, even a criminal like Trump. I hope he loses every penny to fines and lawsuits, but locking him up would look horrible to the rest of the world, and send a bad message to our citizens. It’s too divisive and banana republic-like. I agreed with the Nixon pardon. I didn’t like W Bush, Cheney or the Iraq war, but trying them for war crimes is going too far. It’s a situation where some justice has to take a back seat to avoiding damage to the country.

      But now I think if he’s convicted of a felony, it will damage the country if he ISN’T locked up. He’s told two AGs to investigate Hillary Clinton, again, for something his own staff have done. He ousted practically every top FBI agent, accused them of treason, and said they should get 50 years.

      Think about this: Trump was impeached for leveraging Ukraine for election help by having them investigate Joe Biden and his family. For personal, political reasons, he’s willing to send a former Vice President and long-time Senator to a Ukrainian prison. He wanted Ukraine – a country he said was corrupt – to investigate a US citizen and American elder statesman. He wants his rival probed by a crooked foreign country – based on NO evidence of a crime. It’s way beyond dirty politics. That’s someone on a war footing.

      In 2016, I thought “lock her up” was just an election gimmick, but Trump is really using the DOJ to go after Hillary. Lock HIM up. I hope he loses the election and gets jailed on federal charges. He’ll be on a prison phone, dictating tweets to Hannity trashing President Biden while demanding a pardon from him. And I hope Biden actually gives him one – on his last day in office in 4-8 years.

    • @J Groovy What felony dork? President Trump said the exact same things that month to Jim Acosta in a press conference. It’s not a fake story, it’s what’s known as non-news.

    The professor brings up a good point; we’ve already moved on from the Atlantic bombshell.
    The man is a walking fraud.

  5. Legend has it, that when Trump had his DNA tested….It came back as a stool sample.

  6. Stop trying to get Trump to be someone he’s not. He’ll never have a capacity for empathy because he is incapable of it. His malignant narcissism prevents this.

      Why would anyone empathize with you awful people?

      Detailed Democrat history you can use to prove to a Republican that they are voting wrong. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g_a7dQXilCo&t=82s

    • Vote for Biden, he feels you. *President Trump’s platform:* Defeated Isis, lowering big pharma prices, energy independence, criminal justice reform, peace in the Middle East (Nobel Prize stuff), crushing much of Radical Islam, zero wars, First Step act, action against opioids bringing death rate down, excellent COVID response enacted the Defense Production Act 78 times, border security, 50+ hostage release negotiations, cracked down on North Korea, housing, bank and labor deregulation, lower taxes, strongest economy ever, 50-year record low unemployment of 3.5% in September 2019, lowest unemployment rate ever of 4.1% for blacks and Hispanics, 7 million jobs created. *Democrat’s platform:* Must defeat Trump… or you’ll all die, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump… *We Love You.*

      Like Voldemort.

      74 years of Looking DOWN on People will do that to you.

  7. Trump’s father was openly racist, Donald was racist, the entire presidential administration was pathological racists!

  8. Nadia Silvershine | September 10, 2020 at 2:16 PM | Reply

    The Orange Guy actually displays the polar opposite of empathy — contempt.

  9. Well, no kidding. A self serving narcissist does not feel empathy.

  10. They’re called “Balls”, Eddie…and Putin has trump’s…

    sorry I am not addicted to it. we are voting blue we are sick of trump and his crooks

  12. Trump removed healthcare from his afflicted toddler nephew because he was mad at his brother. Enough said. Anyone who voted for him voted for the destruction of America.

  13. You cannot add any acnedotes to such a morally bankrupt character like DJ TRUMP. He defies definition and understanding PERIOD!

  14. Trump has enjoyed a powerful sort of privilege his whole life. Even though he has failed miserably as a president, and his lies about a virus caused the loss of 200,000 American lives, that privilege could still deliver him a 2nd term as president.
    Meanwhile, Obama wearing a tan suit or using the wrong sort of mustard on his burger was a reason for outrage.
    Tell me that isn’t White Privilege.

  15. The GOP is going to carry this millstone around their neck. They have emblazoned themself in history books for all eternity.

  16. It’s called being a sociopath. Trump is incapable of feeling empathy or sympathy.

  17. I would bet money on him not actually understanding what systemic racism is.

  18. Trump was unqualified, it was his white privilege that got him in the Oval Office! Would Obama have got into office with the same behavior as Trump? NOPE!

  19. Trump inherited almost $500m from his father but he doesn’t feel privileged…😒

  20. Chump himself wouldn’t rent to blacks or Latinos.
