  1. The “Law and Order” President just shown again his hypocrisy and his pardons is basically an admission of guilt. 😜

    • It’s amazing how many Trumpanzees I have been seeing commenting on some videos who are completely convinced the Democrats have rigged the election. There seems to be no amount of evidence that will convince them they’re wrong. They make absurd claim after absurd claim with nothing to back it up. They’ve drunk the koolaid completely and they will never believe the reality. Trump has done a real number on their heads.

    • Nixon was the “law and Order” president, Reagan was the “holier than thou” president, and Drumpf will have to get his own hypocritical name.

      You got that right, that’s the Donald for you can’t help himself ! He’s loves drama, watch he’ll blame Obama’s or Hilary huh ! he ever takes responsibility for nothing !

    • Law and Order presidents are always the ones getting indicted, investigated, etc. Watergate, Iran-Contra and abetting cocaine sales, this whole four year thing. Not surprising since Law and Order is at the end of the day an American dog whistle for white supremacy

    • Hhokyes

  2. Doesn’t even surprise me anymore. I will never forgive the people who supported him and voted for him in my entire lifetime

    Trump is going to be the first President to be flown to Prison right after he leaves the WH lol.

    • @MK ULTRA What is this fixation with Obama? Let’s move on shall we? And see our government run as it should. Without corruption in the 3 branches of government.

    • @nadt you’re wrong. Only federal courts and the sdny are looking into trump. And if trump pardons himself, only the sdny will look into it. Thats it. And even if trump does go to jail, are we letting the rest of the 1945 party scott free? I guess stepping on one roach will solve the infestation right? I thought biden actually cared about justice for children in cages…. I guess I’ll just hope justice happens by itself.

    • @nadt justice isn’t corruption. Only a do nothing liberal would fold to conservatives and rationalize inaction. You are the problem. Im not fixated on obama, im fixated on the incompetent and lying liberals.

    • @MK ULTRA no, you can contact any number of organizations that will give you a list of people to text or call or write to. You also get training and a script to use. If someone on your list turns out to be a Republican or a Trump supporter you politely thank them for their time and wish them a nice day.

      My point is are you just going to complain or are you going to DO something.

    • @Leticia Bustamante Right next to Bill Cosby. Another Narcissist that thought he was above the Law.

    Pay the prez for pardons
    Trump: fake news
    The world: sounds about right.

    Trump, I wasn’t aware of bribery for pardon…..I just accepted the money and signed pardon papers!

    • That’s probably he’s “pay for pardon” defense 😁

    • Anthony Halliday | December 2, 2020 at 5:11 PM | Reply

      @Jeffrey Whipple tragically simply be being “that fanatic” he will secure 40+% of the electorate. Hopefully any credibility as both a man of virtue and necessary worth of character as presidential candidate has destroyed by his complicity in this tragic episode of US governance. If he has the least speck of decency and awareness-(and I think he does)- he will run to whatever refuse the anonymity of time accords him, and be grateful he didn’t also serve time in incarceration.
      The Republican party must divorce itself from Trump and his philosophy (for want of a better word) ‘asap’ and entirely before it can claim a President as one of theirs.

      @Anthony Halliday Trump will Pardon himself and his family. It will be challenged in SCOTUS. If they ARE truly constitutionalists they should disavow a self pardon for undefined criminal acts. I doubt Pence will even enter into it. He may try for some future diplomatic spot in some future unlikely GOP administration although Id say the lesson learned from the last 4 is stand against fascist rule or else the 74 mil will run over us all. Personally Im tired of crap like Newsmax and OAN and Murdoch drivel masquerading as “news”.

    • What is Barr’s involvement? If he initiated this investigation and or approved it…..This may be to help start another false narrative for trump….
      See they came after me again…..and failed setting up his next…..See I really am the VICTIM….see see see. Current DOJ has ZERO Credibility with
      Barr in charge. I don’t believe 1 word of it till I see Evidence. No way Barr is going after trump…I promise you. This is another stupid horse and pony show for trump’s gullible base. 170,000,000 USD to fight Voter Fraud. That 170 million…El Paso will be the next court loss for trump they are suing
      trump for non payment of rally costs for the city. Basically that 170 million will be used to pay trump’s debts from 2016 and beyond. That’s how ridiculously
      Stupid his supporters are. Cities all across this great country of ours are lining up to sue trump and his cronies for non payment of course. When has trump ever paid his bills or his taxes for that matter.

      @Side Ways lmao, nobody cares dude. Its words on YouTube.

  6. Lovely….Trump said this is fake news…January 20th can’t come fast enough…Bye Trump

    • @Muddy Water You want to stop making up statistics?

    • @Muddy Water NO, it’s the christian RIGHT that burn or ban books, moron!

    • @Muddy Water The judges were republications, a lot of them Trump appointees, but don’t get facts get in your way.

    • @Muddy Water okay… but now even Bill Flintstone Barr has said, “no widescale fraud”. This is DTs buddy. Is he telling tales now? Why? When he has protected DT all along? I am not going to say absolutely no fraud because I am sure they could show some, but not on the levels where the electoral numbers would turn in DTs favor.

    • @Muddy Water
      Yes, that is until Republicans took over 100%. How people change. Some improve while others turn to scum. Even orange. Right?

  7. OF COURSE TRUMP IS TAKING BRIBES. WHAT ELSE COULD YOU EXPECT?

  8. This administration can be described by 5 c’s. Chaos, crisis, confusion, corruption and criminality.

  9. Giuliani was reportedly looking for a pardon yesterday. Trump plans on pardoning him and his rat faced criminal kids

    • @Fred Pinczuk It’s not a pres. pardoning another, because there’s only 1 pres. at a time. Former presidents keep the title, but are legally just private citizens. It’s also not “self-pardoning”, which is literally pardoning one’s self (individual’s are pardoned, not the office/position). While the issue of self-pardoning is debatable (most scholars say “can’t do it”, but it hasn’t been tested), a Pres. can “preemptively” pardon anyone else. In theory, before Jan. 20, Trump could preemptively pardon Pence, then resign, making Pence pres., who could then pardon former Pres. Trump. Pence wouldn’t face impeachment (takes too long & max penalty is removal from office, which he’s out of Jan 20 anyhow) & private citizens Trump & Pence wouldn’t face federal criminal charges, due to each other’s Presidential Pardons. This is an example of why many feel the pardon power is too great.

      @WN Safford thanks for the knowledge I did not notice.. but I should have…I guess I happy with the fact that at least that thief rel loved the country enough to resign… Instead of causing more problems and denying reality… He knew he was guilty; and took his lumps and took the right way out…(pardon given by successor…NOT! by himself!!!!(as Mike Tyson would say…, It’s just Ludakwisps I tell ya!!! !LUDA KWiSP!!!

    • @WN Safford I came up with the same conclusion. Specially in regards to using his brush with Cov19 as the perfect excuse to remove himself under “health condition”. Allow Pence to take over, and possibly (strong possibility) of winning the election. And then Pence pardon’s trump. Done. But it would not resolve his NY state pending charges.

  10. Rudy is involved. Lock em’ up!

  11. THEY WANT THE FAMILY FRIEND PARDON PLAN. NOT NEEDED UNLESS YOU ARE GUILTY OF SOMETHING

  12. I’m shocked, said nobody.

    The day Trump took power, the US government was compromised.

  14. Corruption and wrongdoing in this administration??? I just can’t believe it! Has to be a hoax like Covid19 😁

  15. Trumpies are quite silent about this. They must be praying for their cult leader.

    • Murray Flewelling | December 2, 2020 at 11:36 PM | Reply

      @Guy Noir It means nothing. GA , which was state run by republicans already announced that there was ZERO evidence of voter fraud, which is why they rightly certified it for Biden.
      We hear this nonsense everyday and although it is getting old, the 22 of Jan is fast approaching. I hear Biden has impressed everyone that has seen how far he can kick 250 pounds with his new boot……From the WH balcony it will really be entertaining !!!!!!!!

    • Stephen Palmer | December 3, 2020 at 12:50 AM | Reply

      @Murray Flewelling Trump was targeted by Comey’s FBI, General Flynn was framed by the FBI, Roger Stone’s house was invaded by heavily-armed FBI agents in the middle of the night under instructions from Mueller, Trump was impeached despite having committed no crime – they have spent 4 years looking for a crime to get him for – so its likely that will continue after he leaves office – they want to make sure that no outsider never runs for President again.
      He should protect himself and his family from fake prosecutions

    • Stephen Palmer | December 3, 2020 at 1:02 AM | Reply

      @Frszt All the Republicans are asking for is an investigation to see how much fraud there was, if Trump lost fair and square they will happily accept that. The Democrats are different, they are trying to shut down any investigation of voter fraud, and install Biden as President win or lose.

    • Stephen Palmer | December 3, 2020 at 1:10 AM | Reply

      @Frszt He’s the President, its his duty to ensure there was no voter fraud. The statistics of the votes are extremely suspicious – it should be looked into – and BTW sworn affidavits are evidence in court. Plus Georgia found 1000s of lost votes and a record shift to Trump of 1800 votes in the recount.

  16. He is the swamp.

  17. Trump taking bribes for pardons… Anybody surprised? Greetings from the Netherlands.

  18. No pardons for anybody not even the Trump’s send them all to jail no mercy for crooks

  19. President should not be able to pardon family. That’s corruption at the highest level✅🤷🏿‍♀🤔✅🤔✅🤔

    • @nadt It may seem like a technicality, but there is no such thing as one president pardoning another, because we only have one at a time. Former president’s retain the title, but legally are just private citizens. I think the notion of self-pardoning is insane, but legal scholars don’t all agree. Most say “no”, some say “maybe” (but shouldn’t), but a few say, since it’s not specifically excluded (from the massive Presidential Pardon powers), it can be done. It’s never been attempted, so it’s never been tested in court.

      @Scary Uncle Martin You forget one thing. There’s a God in Heaven that while men propose, God disposes. But if it He gives into the communist. Then God isn’t righteous. But He holds name higher than anything else. That’s why He says. Them takes my name in vain. I won’t hold guiltless.

    • @WN SaffordActually, Nixon was pardoned by Bush. But legally, you can’t be your own judge. That is the law. Again not that law matters to anything trumpy.

      @Sheldon Pashby you wanna try retyping that? I don’t know what your trying to say.
