  1. Democratics need to fight or extend the courts if not young voters will vote them out. If you don’t stand up for us we will not vote for you

      They cannot pack the courts without a Senate majority. We need to vote them into office in 2020 so that they have the numbers to fight for us. In other words, we must fight for the Dems with our vote so they have the power to fight for us.

    • If you’re here to vote. If Trump wins it’s over for America’s Democracy. Whether it’s Blue, Green or Red it won’t matter. Democrats had him impeached, but the Senate keep him in Office. Young voters won’t be able to do anything about a Dictator.

  2. Mitch McConnell is a stain on the soul of America.

  3. The Democrats can open Impeachment procedures on William Barr and Donald Trump too, if needed. Those would have to be dealt with first by the Senate and the Dems can run out the clock on the choosing of the Justice for the Supreme Court.

  4. Dam! This guy makes a lot of sense!

  5. The Senate wouldn’t remove Trump they said let the people vote and decide!! So that’s what we should do now vote to remove him.

  6. One Trillion dollar annual deficit, Ur kids need to pay that back. Vote for taxing the Extreme GREEDY

    • Forefiture of Trump’s Assets, McConnels Assets and Barr’s Assets take all their wealth Stone , Flynn etc. That could pay a big portion of the Deficite and of coarse reverse the idiodic tax cuts to the wealthiest these wealthy corporations must pay their taxes as does all Americans. They enjoy investing let them invest in Our People and our Country. They will still be Wealthy and if they don’t like it to bad that’s the fair and just way and they won’t go without anything. So all Americans can prosper as our Constitution states. Vote Blue💙🇺🇸

    • We need this Fighter in Congress. Hope you have him back to express his good ideas. America can use his stand up attitude and in your face personality.👍💙🇺🇸

  7. Trump lied, 200,000+ Died,
    Trump is more Dangerous than Covid 19,
    Trump to Prison 2020!

  8. It’s time for this government to become much more progressive… In 4 years I hope to see the younger generations take over.

  9. Moscow Mitch has done more to destroy republican credibility than anyone except for the orange blight himself. Their complete reversal on superior court nominations is just the icing on the cake of complete reversals, starting with their opinion of their current master.

  10. Other than Trump, McConnell is the most loathsome person in government. Can’t imagine someone more contemptible, spineless and hypocritical. A truly despicable person.

    • @Jack Soxman “Greg, anyone ever told you lack common sense and fact? Your comment is so wacked.”
      Glaring by its ABSENCE is a single piece of evidence/rational argument supporting your characterization of Greg’s post. To put it simply, your evidenceFREE assertion that something “is so” does not automatically “make it so”.

    • @JVS 3 he meant elected I’m thinking

    • Morgan All truth | September 21, 2020 at 10:53 PM | Reply

      Greg he’s a walking fossil

    • @Marie Smith all of them works for themself not even for trump. American people need to be smart and go out vote for every senator not only for president. If senators lose by big president cant do nothing congress a d Senate can block him as they were doing in the past 4 years. We are watching from the world. Good luck Americans we pray for your success

    • Willie Swolley yes probably but Barr is definitely among them

  11. I’m a libertarian but even I think trump is destroying the government to much , I want to live in America after hes gone not Russia. ☝️🤔 Blue has my vote ( the first vote in 15 years )

  12. Elie, MY GUY! You are RIGHT ONNTHE MONEY my man. The American people are sick of the hypocrisy so let’s make it right. Expand..

  13. Power and greed before country.
    The Republicans new motto.

  14. I’m white but this black guy with awesome hair is absolutely right. We should do exactly what he is talking about.

  15. Democratic leaders really need to step up, not slip into their wimp out, nice guy role.
    Now is NOT, the time to be nice. Save Democracy!

  16. The man is a talking sense, why is the court so small?

  17. We need like a 25 Million Women to march on Washington to put this nomination on Hold.

  18. McConnell and his corruption need to be ended! Period!

  19. It’s not McConnell’s “whims” but his treason that is destroying our democracy.

  20. We thought Congress and the president couldn’t do a whole lot of things that they’ve done.
