  1. Just shows Rs have to cheat to win anything. Explains how Trump won doesn’t it?

    • @Baby Huey did you not listen to the interview at all yes that’s exactly what they did they told everybody including the media that there was not going to be anybody there there wasn’t going to be any vote so don’t worry about it it’s 9:11 and then they pulled that s*** , what a bunch of f****** cowards… wives and husbands should be hanging their heads in shame to be married to something that dishonest!!! Also just a Heads up to the wives and husbands of those people that voted that way… they’re cheating on you also… and if you don’t believe me… check there phones and other devices… hate to be you

    • @Joyice Chase LOL, Ds got schooled and now want to cry about it….I was feeling thirsty. Thanks for those L tears…

  2. The Republicans sneaky and corrupt. They would destroy democracy in a day if they could.

    • @Bush Pilot Dude Nice try, but no cigar sunbeam. In normal circumstances, I have voted for the UK Conservative party for many years. I rather liked Mrs May and I knew the wheels were going to come off when everyone thought they were cleverer and more ‘aligned with the people’ and forced her to resign. Who did we get? Trump Lite. (Or; The Phucking Brit Moron.)

      @Walt Schmidt A Constitutional Republic is one type of Democracy, moron. Like a pear is a type of fruit. Democracy means we get to vote and we have rights as citizens. Go back to school and quit repeating that ignorant nonsense.

    • Ryan Edwards ….don’t forget when Wisconsin democratic lawmakers illegally left their jobs to hide out in Illinois to try to stop a vote in Wisconsin, and how democrats under Obama changed the votes needed for filibusters, virtually stopping the Republicans from using them. Fair play is fair play, guess.
      Both sides do childish crap like this all the time. This just happened to get caught on a cell phone.

    • @Bush Pilot Dude another clueless red hat. Have you considered educating yourself instead of trolling the internet? Doubt it your comments are lazy and ignorant

  3. Trump’s utter contempt for democracy, the rule of law, and our Constitution as a whole, has infected the entire GOP. The fish rots from the head, and the GOP is now rotten to it’s core.

    • Really? Then why does the democrap party STINK so much snowflake πŸ™‚

    • Blink Once on Sunday! | September 12, 2019 at 11:05 AM | Reply

      I disagree. Trump didn’t start this. On the contrary, it was the decades-long decay of American values as well as party values in the GOP that led to Trump getting elected. Remember we almost had a female Trump as McCain’s VP when he ran against Obama. Sarah Palin was the prelude to Trump. And racist sentiment plagued Obama during his entire 8 years. Racism from several white Republican members of Congress, who seriously wanted to impeach him because of the birtherism rumors and because he wanted to give people affordable healthcare.

    • Jon Dana I totally agree with you fortunately I do remember the Reagan years and saw back then the beginnings of the end of our great country as I knew it.

  4. Despicable, Republicans do all by cheating.

  5. This is pretty reprehensible, even for a Republican.

    • Tessmage Tessera | September 12, 2019 at 6:08 AM | Reply

      Their party is dying. Down to being only 24% of the total electorate these days. What we’re seeing from the Republicans is desperation. This is all they have left.

    • Actually, this is standard behavior for a repub….it’s what they do, it’s what they’ve done….they just got caught red handed this time. They’re being exposed by their own greed.

    • It is becoming embarrassing to live in North Carolina now because of the Republican party.

    • This is disgusting, I have send money to Deb Butler. Do the same, these GOP fascists need to get out of town with a grand kick in the lower regions. Disgusting.

  6. I just sent the campaign to re-elect Deb Butler some cash. We need more Deb Butlers. I encourage everyone to do the same.

  7. The demographics are trending against them. I expect increasingly desperate and illegal acts by Republicans to hold onto power. Does anyone really not get why Trump has been kissing Putin’s Russian behind lately? They HAVE TO cheat.

    America has gone third world…^^^^^

  9. Bless Deb Butler for standing up for us. More people need to become vocal like her!

    Kiwi living in Australia agrees! Do not yield fine lady! πŸ™Œβ˜ΊοΈ

    • I agree but, I can’t figure out what the significance of you having moved from New Zealand πŸ‡³πŸ‡Ώ to Australia πŸ‡¦πŸ‡Ί is… πŸ€”
      I mean, your flag didn’t even really change! 🀣
      Look at that! πŸ‡³πŸ‡ΏπŸ‡¦πŸ‡ΊπŸ‘ˆπŸΌπŸ‘€πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™‚οΈπŸ˜‚

    • STFU kiwi you don’t have a say πŸ™‚

  11. Republicans are nothing more than crooks.

  12. This just goes to show the disgusting Republicans will stoop to any level to get their minority agenda passed. They want to rule by minority to make the rich richer, to give tax breaks and subsidies to big corporations, to let dark money influence elections, to strip away health care for millions of Americans, and the list goes on and on.

    • I agree with you 100%, but then there’s that whole *voting party line* “thing” that will keep North Carolina *red!* Party-line voters are the ones who couldn’t tell you a thing about anything about government, they just do what they were told by previous generations. Well that and they’ve turned their backs on education for generations and now have this stupid ‘ideal’ that they are somehow “owning the libs!” These ‘people’ disgust me and every time I’m around them I feel I’ve somehow been infected by them! They refuse to engage in factual conversation because they come less than equipped to engage in it and would rather walk away than offer anything of substance rooted in fact! We are witnessing the fruition of *”the dumbing down of America!”*

    • @D James Morgan And the sad part is, some of the Democratic party is big on party purity. They’ll only support somebody if the person ticks all their boxes.

    • @pisto30 Which is just about impossible right? 330M of us all clambering for something different; the candidate you suggest is impossible to produce.

      @D James Morgan Oh believe me, if they walked away, I’d give them more credit. The problem is they don’t. They argue against real facts by quoting some right-wing nut-job conspiracy theories they heard from Alex Jones or others like him. That’s the real problem with the country.

    • *I honestly never thought that I’d witness to utter contempt for democracy that was just demonstrated by the current day GOP. I am no longer a Republican after this. They went too far this time!* πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ

  13. republicans continue to have no shame.

    • and democraps continue to have No Brains πŸ™‚

    • ​@Bush Pilot Dude Just a fact check. Republican also wants to remove higher education, because those people who read or educate won’t vote for them πŸ™‚ What now?

    • @Bush Pilot Dude sorry but your comment shows you have no brains. Have you read the proposed budget? Gutting education and cutting business taxes even more is good for no one but the rich.

  14. Typical corrupt Republican. That’s all they know how to do. I’m glad that I left the party.

    • @LifeIsFair ItKillsEveryone Ladies & gentlemen, the party of ‘family values’.

    • so are we

    • We are glad you left the Party too snowflake πŸ™‚ Wish you would leave our Country next πŸ™‚

    • @free spirit love to Snowflake πŸ™‚

    • ME as well…Gosh they have become the Racist Republic of Amerikkka and are willing to cross any lines to hold onto what power they do have.. ANY GOP member who remains that actually has a moral compass and who values Country over Party needs to speak up and LOUD.. I am sure Millions of us at this point believe that the degree of contempt for law and the loyalty that now exists within the GOP to their “Dear Leader” is going to result in great tragedy ..You just have to listen to Trump’s hard core base talk..to realize that this insanity is so far beyond normal Partisanship….they openly threaten “Bloodshed” in the streets..”IF” Trump loses next year.. Our Country is torn to shreds..So Tragic..

  15. Democrats voting in every race is the only way to inoculate the country from this type of treachery.

    • Speak only facts | September 12, 2019 at 10:21 AM | Reply

      @Roger Whittle Yes, that is for sure. Our Republican “party” has been hijacked by a failed business man and his corrupt family. And, AND the Republicans are falling over one another to get lock stepped behind him. We are in grave danger here.

  16. We no longer live under a democracy, America is now a fascist state.

  17. Jonathan Bester | September 12, 2019 at 1:50 AM | Reply

    All republicans are either complicit in corruption or just effin stupid, like those braindead evangelicals that think Jesus is best buds with Trump

  18. Has EVERY decent minded voter HAD ENOUGH of the Republicans already, geez!? What underhanded trick next!?

    • Im just thinking what kind of role modeling is this for the children of NC

    • Ya liked that did ya snowflake πŸ™‚

    • @Bush Pilot Dude You’re all over this page saying the same low IQ catchphrases that you couldn’t think up on your own, because you’re stupid. It’s rather sad that you clearly have nothing better to do than be a really low level internet troll because your parents won’t give you any attention.

  19. This just shows how dirty and low down Republicans are.

  20. If you are wondering where all the Democrats were, they were at a 9/11 memorial.

    • This was incredibly low, even for Republicans. Utterly disrespectful… And they had been _told_ there would be no voting that day, so it was okay to attend the memorial.
