  1. The goonsquad is smashing the place up on the way out.

  2. Trump hired the best nut jobs for America. This is one of the reasons why we the people fired you Mr. Trump.

  3. Speechless. One crazy after another even at the end.

    • Him and the republicans are a great reason elections need reformed.
      Kneecap election candidates for 4-6 weeks in the run up to an election.
      Do transition briefings in the same time period.
      The victor is installed as soon as it’s declared.
      Scrap the lame duck, this whole thing with using the transition period to booby trap the incoming lawmakers/governors/mayors/administration is worse than childish.
      Keep the inauguration as a celebration/custom.

    • Looks kinda like Trump is moving his nutters around so they have a better retirement package. Imho

  4. Wait and Watch as US Intelligence
    Assets in Russia Start to Vanish.

    Trump and Team Probably Leaking
    their Names to Putin and Erdogan. 🤷‍♀️

  5. These people are probably gearing up to sell out their country’s secrets.

    • @If you don’t vote for Biden, YOU AIN’T BIDEN Biden is a moderate candidate so a lean to banks, big business and corporations is to be expected, just like Obama was. Just because you’re a democrat does not necessarily make you a full left wing liberal. Or did Fox News tell you another lie?

      At least a lot of these appointees aren’t inexperienced multi-million dollar donors to Biden’s political campaign.

      Or should we shine a microscope on what putting inexperienced big pocket donors like De Vos and DeJoy into roles they have no business in have done for the country? We’d need more than their millions of dollars they put towards Trump’s campaign to reverse years of bad decision making and mismanagement.

      Does anyone know if Biden can get rid of these losers

    Sounds like Putin’s list of final demands is being met.He has kompromat on Trump for sure.

      @If you don’t vote for Biden, YOU AIN’T BIDEN Hunter Biden isn’t and doesn’t run for president.

      @alexandra störbrauck yes, double down on your stupidity and hypocrisy, why don’t you?

    • @If you don’t vote for Biden, YOU AIN’T BIDEN Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and to remove all doubt.

    • Maine McEachern | November 24, 2020 at 2:05 PM | Reply

      Yep. It all leads back to Trump’s endless business failures, his billion + in loans coming due, his laundering money through his failed real estate ventures for foreign dictators and Russian oligarchs, the kompomat Putin has on him, Trump’s legal jeopardy for money laundering, tax evasion, electoral fraud, banking fraud, obstruction of justice, business fraud (e.g. Trump “University”), campaign finance and emoluments violations, criminal dereliction of duty and mass murder (contributing to hundreds of thousands of Americans dying in order to try to force the economy to remain open to increase his chances of re-election and avoiding jail-time), human rights violations (torturing children by stealing them from their parents and locking them in cages), constitutional violations (too numerous to mention, but for e.g. trying to bribe foreign leaders and soliciting the help of foreign dictatorships to steal elections), etc. Trump is terrified. His whole life is and always has been a lie, a PR campaign to cover up his own profound insecurity and incompetence. He’s only ever learned to boast, cajole, threaten, borrow, blackmail, solicit help from more intelligent, better resourced people, etc., in order to appear to himself be successful, when he’s nothing but an abject personal, financial and political failure. And now all the checks, all the karma, all the consequences of his life-time of cheating and manipulating are coming due. Don’t be surprised if he does actually try to stage a last-ditch coup as he desperately tries to save his own worthless skin.

  7. Trumpovich is busy working off those Russian debts. Good job Vlad.

  8. Putin told Trump to liquidate the planes in one of his many secret phone calls or meetings off the grid.

    • If the military had any sense of patriotism, they would put the planes in mothballs, in preparation for ‘liquidating’ in 3 months time, so Biden could reverse the, decision!!

    • I believe there is much much more to come & this November Election is not over with (Michael Cohen said he may even try & start a war to remain in power & he knows his former boss) & I believe the King in the White House will now (as a Last & Final Act) go to a foreign power such as Russia & stop the November Election through his own private Defense Department (just changed with new wonderful people (goons) after Secretary of Defense Mark Esper was fired) by now planning a complete & total power blackout of the USA including all communication (internet, radio, TV, hacking of many online bank accounts, etc.) through connections with his own private Defense Department & take it from there with COVID-19 running wild just what will happen to the USA. The King has already asked Russia for the emails of Clinton in the past & most likely now will veto the current Defense Bill to fund the Military (for what ever reason), also take away the open skies treaty & also discard observation USA planes. Russia will promote the King in the White House from President to Dictator over the entire USA including the 30 USA billionaires who gladly support him (because the fools think they won’t be Taxed at all, etc.) but Wrong – now with future Big Huge Massive Private Taxes to the King & the Family for Extreme Wealth (just to get out of their massive Debt like $ 46 trillion for starters & you can be quite sure the 30 billionaires will be stopped from leaving the USA). If the King does not get all the millions of $ from his USA billionaires there will most likely be International Contracts put on the King & the Family using the mob (even outside the USA), etc. The November Election will be no more except for civil war, etc. If this is not done the King in the White House will be going to jail for most likely the rest of his life If he remains in the USA after the November Election is over with by past women who he did enjoy, obstruction of justice through the Mueller Report, City & State of New York Taxes, etc. The King must remain in the USA White House but this time as their Dictator.

    • @billycarson
      The Army takes an oath to the constitution, not the president, he may be the Commander in Chief but I’d say the scenario you outlined would be deemed illegal and not be obeyed.

      @billycarson You should sell that script to Hollywood. I pray none of that prevails. These lowlifes have sickened our hearts and minds with worries of the kind.

      And you took the time to put commas and dashes but you cant spell defense right? Go research voter fraud before trying to search within your self and gain real awareness.

    • @Ash Roskell I doubt anyone is hiding anything. this has been the most transparent self-exposing group of people ever.

  10. He is salting the earth.

  11. Trump doing some favors for Putin while putting his people in place for a coup. Just another day for Donald.

    • @bob johnson The poster to whom you are responding didn’t open their account until September 11, 2020. It may be best to simply ignore the trolls and paid agitators.

    • @If you don’t vote for Biden, YOU AIN’T BIDEN 🖕🇷🇺

    • @If you don’t vote for Biden, YOU AIN’T BIDEN You still looking into acting as a career?

    • @If you don’t vote for Biden, YOU AIN’T BIDEN until you freaks leave our country OR crawl back into you hole.

    • @If you don’t vote for Biden, YOU AIN’T BIDEN Muller did no such thing and you saying that shows you never actually read the Muller report and are just parroting what ever right wing media is telling you.

    • Sounds like him.

    • His niece said he would. I hope next time, people will think twice before electing some rich kid whose always had his way. He’s learned the act of conniving . And people just follow him.

    • facts!

  13. Trump is doing Putin’s bidding. Like Nancy said, it all leads back to Russia.

    • Nancy Drew?

  14. The wholesale of Americas secrets may have already begun.

    • @Cynna1065 IF Trump had won, the entire country and people would belong to Putin. You and me would be working at a Vodka factory built by Putin on USA soil.

    • @Sharon Douse Nope. I’d be doing whatever I could to save my country.

    • Probably started immediately after PUTIN/TRUMP secret meeting that WE THE AMERICAN PUBLIC did not get one ioda of information from…along with his little lover rocket man, KIM,!!!! TRUMP IS A TRAITOR ALONG WITH MOST OF HIS republiKKKan ENABLERS WHO HAVE BACKED HIS EVERY ILLEGAL SCHEME TO DEFRAUD WE, THE AMERICAN PUBLIC,!!! The right calls DEMOCRATS SOCIALISTS while they are the BIGGEST SOCIALISTS IN THE HISTORY OF AMERICA, BUT…..THEY ARE ONLY GIVING TO THEIR RICHEST FRIENDS AND MULTI BILLION $ COMPANIES,!! SOCIALIST REPUBLIkkkANS,!!! DUMP TRUMP,!!!

    • @Cynna1065 Trump is done and gone and finished. Move forward with a smile 😊☺️

    • @Sharon Douse Nope. Letting our guard down is how someone like Trump got into office in the first place. Never again.

    Only clowns, liars, kooks, or cronies are given positions in the Trump administration. why? Because they all represent a person who is all that and more.

  16. Does anybody still need more proof that Trump is attempting a coup, or working hand in glovewith Russia?

    • CAN YOU BELIEVE WHO’S RUNNING OUR DEFENSE DEPARTMENT?
      Misters. Wack, A, and Doodle, all acting, of course.
      Funny. All of trump’s appointees are acting.
      He never came close to acting like a president!

    • The “Don” has a scary message for us.
      https://i.postimg.cc/fL5KMQDt/don-gotti.jpg

    • They’re only doing it so that they can be the top head. Puppet man fell for it. He said the right words to gain followers. Their (his cult) IQ is low. Australia is now covid free. Does he care? No, he’s golfing. He’s tearing up the security. People need to wake up.

    • C’mon … seriously? Yes he may be “attempting” a coup … and even atmepting is a generous thing to say. He can lead a coup like he can build walls, noone better than Trump right? lol it’s a joke man! If that guy can pull of a coup, I will be the next Prince of Persia. That is huge undertaking. If the guy was not able to deal with a bad case of flu (as he called it), and wasn’t even able to reinforce the existing border fence (it would be enough for propaganda!) and called it a wall in a PR interview in his 4 YEARS in office … he’s definitley not capable of staging a coup! Think like this – If dealing with COVID (a challange for any president) would be 1 in a difficulty scale 1-10, then Mexican border wall would be a 3 or a 4, and overthrowing US government and installing 74 yead old dictator in power would be somewhere between 11 and impossible! And people are worried about this guy?

      @billycarson Never happen. The Joint Chiefs are still there. The Military won’t follow an illegal order.

  17. I hope people in Georgia see this and vote against the Republicans. Trump would destroy the country rather than admit defeat.

  18. Okay, why won’t anyone ask the question “Is there a 🇷🇺 operative running the White House?”

  19. Trump is doing Putin’s bidding … that’s all, nothing to see here

  20. Biden’s gonna have to clean house massively.
