    Thank you so much Laurence!!!! I’m so sick of hearing Trump’s lying voice and soulless lies… makes me literally sick to my stomach. So sad

  2. The news should take every opportunity to repetitively mention how many tens of millions D. received from the NRA. I think ii t was 30 milliion. Everyone seems to forget about it. Repetition is the only way.

    • So what “D” are you talking about?

    • FinallyFree : How would that make ANY difference, son? There was a time when the Dems were the natural home of the Klan. So what? Ancient history. How about we DEAL with the Nazis and the NRA, RIGHT NOW? How about we introduce some sensible Gun Control, WITHOUT, “taking away your guns?” How about you live in the NOW? . . . SMH

  3. From Dayton. This president gave someone permission to terrorize my home. Don’t worry about the consequences because a lawyer will get you out of it. That you need to walk around with your fists up, instead of your arms open. Don’t worry about lives of others when they don’t look like you, when don’t they think like you, when they don’t pray like you, when they don’t speak your language. His selfishness, his heartlessness, his pettiness, his hate and his fears, have now made me, MY FAMILY and my neighbors feel unsafe in our own homes. 🖕🏻from Dayton, OH.

    Moscow Mitch and Trump will block every law against guns. The NRA bought them. Trump over 30 million. Moscow Mitch over 1 million. The NRA got major sums from Russia.

    The congress woman names “that person”. For the first time someone to call the racist liar-in-chief as “that person” . Others still call him “ the president”. A title he did never deserve. He won with the help of Russia and the outdated election sysyem.

    • @Ivar the Boneless I guess it was the media who marched around with tiki torches yelling about jews?

      Boo hooo! Hillary lost. Russians did it! Russians did it! If she would have one it would be a non issue and you know you traitorous commie hypocrite.

    • @Frans van Mook And now Putin is sitting back smiling and satisfied in his accomplishment to help elect Donald Trump. He got exactly what he wanted. Division and chaos among the American people. Trump is a traitor and charlatan only interested in his approval ratings just like the washed up reality star he is. His racism and hatred is abundantly clear. Trump has caused so much damage to our democracy, that I honestly don’t think America will recover from the travesty that is the Trump Administration. May God help us all.

    • @Carlos Carlos And you are a totally brainwashed cultist.

    Trump and Moscow Mitch are just two love bird’s

    Get Trump where it hurts! In his wallet. Make sure that he pays the 500.000 dollars for his election rally. Go to the courts if necessary.

    • Becky Boatwright | August 8, 2019 at 11:41 AM | Reply

      @Hamish Gaffaney something tells me he thinks he is going to live forever. Anyway how much money can one person need?? I mean how can a person possibly spend a billion dollars, in a lifetime? But yet they want more & more & more? Greed is a sin. IT just boggles my mind.

    Good on you Lawrence. The media needs to stop letting trump dictate the news cycle. He lives by the ideal – better to be infamous than not famous. Attention is his oxygen; so let’s starve him of it. All the media outlets should do this. There will of course be some who won’t (eg Fox) – but history will hold them to account, and their short term gain will be erased. When the dust settles from the trump presidency – fox is done.

    • He actually kinda is

      This is an entire video about him

    • @murray1575
      What does that make CNN and MSNBC?

      balanced and unbiased news sites?

    • Michael Burtt I wish we could petition all news stations to do exactly that. Then normal people would get their power back.

    • If there is much of a future left. Boomers seem like they figure “hey I’m gonna die soon anyways. What does it matter to me?”


  9. I can’t wait for this wicked president to leave office.

    • @Alphachimp But you just said you don’t care about anyone but yourself. So why do you care if they go bankrupt

    • @Alphachimp blasphemous pos! who are you to say who God Almighty loves. go eat a banana and stfu

    • @Carlos Carlos before you shoot your mouth off around people who can put their fist in it you might want to tune in c-spans coverage of the house budget hearings. As trumps right hand slid the knife in under our political rib cage his left hand was relieving us of our wallet

    The Orange Fuhrer is the epitome of a weak man…as he can never admit he is wrong, when he obviously is…..he always thinks he’s right, when he obviously isn’t. … and when he can’t win the argument, he obviously lies.

    • PieCe hiPpie | August 8, 2019 at 9:50 AM | Reply

      @Saltponds239 wrong again…there’s never been a politician that represented me. Obama should have been more for the working class and marginalized…soon your demographic will be marginalized, if not already.

    • @Saltponds239 you think this bag of milk is a patriot? The reason he has not accepted the threat to our free elections is so he won’t have to accept the results of the next one. between the day in november and the day of inauguration he will invalidate the vote and call on the senate under McConnell to set a future date for another. when he declares martial law there will be no 2024

    • @Sneeze Saw Where do you guys come up with this stuff? I’ve been hearing that recently so I am assuming that will be the DemoRATS play come election time.

      Just like the Russian hoax, their next hoax will be an election hoax and just like you fell for the last hoax, you will fall for this one also because you are a dope.

  11. Thank you for refusing traitor trump the air time. I cannot stand seeing or listening to traitor trump any longer.

      @carloss Loss I can respect the office, not this president. He’s an illegitimate, dangerous and embarrassing man to have leading our country.

      Good soldiers don’t blindly follow people unconditionally. If my captain or sergeant ever gave me orders to massacre a village and make necklaces out of their ears as has happened in the past, I would disobey them with ferocity and any level headed soldier would do the same.

    • They do. Stop calling them victims. Trump has never been smart enough to persuade anybody. All his lies have come out, so if they still support him that means they are using him to their advantage. (Which is why you vote anyways)

    • Robert Sanchez | August 8, 2019 at 11:32 AM | Reply

      God Forgive Them Psalms 101v3 — millions of (God) fearing Evangelicals Christians, make America great again, send them back, built that wall so brown babies and children can drown and never visited a border town are his base —- (God) is slow to ANGER.

    • They know. They definitely know.

  14. A Nation in which a Primate with a Twitter account “morally guides” lunatics that can buy assault weapons in freaking Walmart doesn’t deserve to claim “shock” or “sorrow” whenever this evil happens.

    • Thomas Fletcher How many mass shooting did antifa Do !?!? Yeah I didn’t think so cockroaches……get under that rock and stay there.

    • Thomas Fletcher | August 8, 2019 at 9:05 AM | Reply

      @Bev White antifa has done a lot of damage and injuries . Turn your news channel to real news or you won’t hear about it . Cockroach ? You got the first part right , I’m a man , sweetie !

    • Angela Siegfried | August 8, 2019 at 11:20 AM | Reply

      @Thomas Fletcher perhaps there’s no reporting on antifa so as not to give them recognition they don’t deserve.

  15. It’s so weird that the President speaks like an ESL student, while EL Pasoan speak perfect English.

  16. Lots of love to El Paso from the West Coast of Canada. We love you, we hold you in our hearts and we are so proud of you…God bless you all!

  17. Trump should be held legally responsible for inciting this hatred.
    Do not let the soul of these victims die senselessly.
    May El Paso be a beam of hope for a shattered nation , May El Paso be a strength to all colored people of this nation.

    Me also I was afraid, A Navajo US Army Veteran of 14 years. Now Home in Phoenix, Arizona. They hate our skin color, I’m going to vote also. I hope many Navajos VOTE. 🙄

      Please don’t feel pressured to vote for a particular candidate by YouTube. You know your reality, you know your own mind. Vote the way your spirit tells you to. Thank you for your service….oh one tiny remark more, investigate the way politicians have voted previously on issues that are important to you. We can all appear nice and say nice things, it’s more important how we act in the long run. Having served your country you are also aware of the consequences of your vote and what happens to the service men and women on deployment, far better than any politician or average Joe!

    Trump talks about invaders. Well this week an invader came to El Paso, intent on killing people in a city which was not his own, all while repeating Trump’s hateful words. We cannot allow this to continue.

    Omg thank you give trump no air time to speak he makes me sick and sad …his a horrible person

    • @Elizabeth Shaw
      And the man who speaks in this video is very professional and cordial?
      It’s not the media’s responsibility to make that judgement call.

      They should just tell the news and make people from their opinions

      @Goyon Man I agree with Lawrence …but your entitled to your opinion I read it but I’m entitled to disagree…un like a baby…I respect your opinion I just don’t agree
